Weekly Ramblings: Round 6

This week has been quite eventful, with two posts a day on the blog and one day when there were no posts thanks to my eye infection. The doctor said I strain my eyes way too much and that I need to reduce the time I spend on the computer and watching television.. Baaah… Talk about impossible things!! πŸ˜›

I’m starting off this week’s post by telling you about something that brought back the child in me and also satisfied the makeup lover in me. You know how we always find something that excites us at the cash counter and end up buying it ? This was one of those.

I bought two of these just for the cute packaging and I was curious to see how it looked inside. The outside packaging was supposedly that of a lipstick and the candyΒ insideΒ was shaped like a lipstick bullet. How cute is that! And the candy tastes AMAZING and is quite addictive!! It looks mostly opaque when opened but turns into this translucent beautiful pink (did I just say beautiful pink??!!) as the quantity decreases and no, you don’t bite it off and make the whole experience miserable for yourself. Not happening. I wish this was also available in orange though. And thankfully this doesn’t make my lips or tongue pink so that’s awesome.
I so badly wanted to show how my mom hoards and partly blame her for all the hoarding I do! πŸ˜‰ This incident happened at the time my mom got married. Horlicks used to be sold in glass bottles which is fabulous for storing groceries in the kitchen. These bottles were apparently a huge rage then and was in great demand! See the picture and you will understand why!!
My mom has tons of these and also smaller versions of these (so does my grandmom!!) and she has had it for more than 25 years now!! She used to buy them in bulk and also a shopkeeper she knew used to give her these bottles because my mom used to buy groceries regularly from that store! Talk about awesome kitchen organization!
Ever since I discovered Peanut butter in the US on my visit there in 2003, I’ve become a huge fan. Give me a jar of Peanut Butter and I’ll survive a day without anything else! And do I need to say anything about Nutella at all??

I prefer creamy peanut butter over the crunchy version (it does not get crunchy just because they add some roasted peanuts to it!!) and till yesterday, I’ve been gorging on a peanut butter nutella sandwich everyday!! This is heaven!! So my diet has taken a toss. So what?? Peanut Butter and Nutella, I love you and I’m ready to sacrifice anything for you. πŸ˜›

This month, if you’ve been regularly reading the blog, you’ll know it is the Brit Brands month. I’m afraid it might spill over to the month of October since there are so many posts pending!! But meanwhile I’m also in the process of comparing a few products and preparing posts on them so that it gives you a clear picture on which one is better.

That’s it for this week! Hope you had a fabulous week πŸ™‚ Let me know how your week was in the comments section below πŸ™‚ And don’t forget, a Peanut Butter Nutella sandwich is all you need to make your day! πŸ˜‰Β
