What’s in My CuteBox November 2017 Edition | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys,
Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

If you ask me, I am a big time hoarder. Be it books, lipsticks, candles or jewellery; I give away my heart within a second and then it takes me years to understand why I have something so precious kept in my cupboard for so long with subtle film of dust onto it. For people like me, de-cluttering our vanities means founding our long lost love or probably ending up with a trash can full of things which we've been stocking for long and now we realize it has no use at all! The irony lies in the fact that even while I get involved in my mini Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan, I end up saving boxes or empty product bottles because it takes a brave heart to toss away a good looking bottle. 😂

Anyways, you guys know my love for jewellery and this is the sole reason I've unfailingly got my hands on CuteBox Subscription Box. The foremost reason as to why I love their subscription box is due to its price point. I'm not one of those who'd spend more than 500 bucks on subscription boxes because "Aye! It hurts my pocket as a student". Plus, who doesn't wanna get contemporary designs of jewllery to try out each month. Although currently my mind repeats that quote I read in From Paris Box which said "Nobody said no to jewellery"; but I literally was clueless about their choices of jewllery in the first place!


Also, I love how CuteBox jewellery comes in a plastic box which you can use for organizing and storage purposes. I literally have recently saved a lot of my earrings into three boxes which I got from previous month's CuteBox. And the fact that they at least let us pick some pieces of jewllery every month based on our preference. By the way, this facility wasn't available in "From Paris Box". You guys must be wondering why I'm consistently mentioning From Paris Box. I recently had a bad experience with them so my mind is continuously making comparisons. 😅

Let's begin with today's post -

Theme of the Month: Come Winter



What You Can Expect This Month: 1 Neckpiece and 4 different Earrings. Out of these, choices are available in neckpiece and one set of earrings about which I shall be elaborating later.

Is the Box Personalized?
The box is only personalized partially. You can select 2 jewellery pieces this month out of the total 5. Within the neckpiece you’d get choices and similarly for the Tibetan Beads Earrings you can pick the colour which you’d prefer. Other three jewellery items will be common within everyone’s box. Choices would be given below –


In Neckpiece -



In Tibetan Beads Earrings -



Bi-Monthly Subscription Package –
Now usually, we’ve seen brands offering subscription packages for 3, 6 & 12 months. To break the monotony, CuteBox has offered a Bi-Monthly Subscription package for their users. If anyone buys the November Box only then they’d be charged Rs. 399 (plus Rs. 50 shipping) which is equal to Rs. 449. But if you opt for the Bi-Monthly package, then you only have to pay Rs. 760 + Rs. 100 (shipping) which will sum up to Rs. 860. And with that you will be saving 40 bucks. But I wish the brand would have waived off the shipping itself to make this package more intriguing.

How to Order:
CuteBox does not have a website as of yet but you can easily place your orders via following means –
⦿ Email: cutebox@yahoo.com
⦿ Instagram DM: @cutebox_jewelry
⦿ WhatsApp: 9330075500/ 8013006430
Mode of Payment Accepted: Bank Transfer or PayTM (9330075500)


What I Received this Month:



Sweater Neckpiece: 
There were some thread ones and there was an oxidized metal one so I went ahead with it because it can comparatively go with a lot of outfits. You can pair this piece with your full sleeved tees or sweaters this winter season. I do like this piece although there’s nothing too unique within this neckpiece. I think I’ve seen such kinds in a lot of flea markets. But I would definitely be wearing this one soon; probably on some plain kurti. For western wear, I think I’d like to style it with some distressed jeans, black sneakers and a white or pale pink tee and silver hoop earrings. 



Vintage Gold Earrings:
There’s something unique about the design of this particular pair of earrings. These have golden hue but the yellow is quite subtle and not overpowering. It looks like a garland with some studs, exclusively placed in center of each flower. There can be paired up with your college or work wear, especially kurtis. These are slightly heavy but not too heavy. I don’t really wear such earrings but let’s see how they would look on me. I’d probably wear them with an ethic wear and palazzo. Possibly something in cream undertones would go amazingly with these.


Tibetan Beads Earrings:
In Delhi, we do have a Tibetan Market near ISBT. But would these be found there or not; I have no clue. What I loved about these earrings is that they are lightweight plus you can get different colour choices. Also, there are different coloured beads on both the side. This gives you ample opportunity to pair it with different outfits. I know the innovation is quite minor but sometimes, even little things do an amazing job for you. 


White Metal Earrings:
This set of earrings is my favourite out of the lot. I like these because these are silver toned and can go with every possible outfit. Also, the design is quite unique and these are lightweight so they won’t hurt your ears after a full day. The design of this is so intricate that you can pair it with ethnic or western wear and look awesome. These can definitely become my go-to earrings for this month for an everyday basis wear. 



Raisin Earrings:
I am kind of unsure about these pair of earrings. I never wear such earrings but then there was no choice in these. The quality by no means is lacking but my choices are slightly different. Probably my sister could wear it with her kurtis.

Final Verdict:
Overall, my experience of this month with CuteBox Subscription Box was a mixed bag. I liked some and for some I was not really happy. But there’s one thing for sure, that CuteBox sorts out your daily wear accessories need; especially earrings. But I am probably seeking some more jewellery pieces as well than just the earrings. Their new label looks professional for sure but I miss the older pink label too. Their first month box had quite innovative pieces and I guess they should incorporate more of such accessories. Lastly, the quality hasn’t been compromised for sure which is why I end up going back to CuteBox.

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 


Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

3 Best Toners for Combination to Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Today’s post is an in-depth discussion on toners in general, what’s been trending lately and inexpensive toners that are available in case you have a skin type that synchronizes with mine. Now, it’s as hard to classify my skin into one genre as a Myer’s personality test’s results. In short, probably those given two options won’t be enough to understanding my personality. Anyways, let’s cut short weird examples and focus on to the topic that has been raised. Naturally, to initiate further this discussion, we need to discuss what a toner is and why we need one in our lives. 

WHAT IS A TONER? Male or female, we are entering a no-gender biased zone. The concept behind toners is that the facial skin, even after the process of cleansing, is left with trails of pollution, bacteria, dust or for that fact, some makeup. Moreover, the harshness of chemical components endowed within the cleanser may affect the pH level of your skin. So in order to revers…

Cute Box March 2018 Edition - Women’s Era | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Is anyone out here, bitten by the bug which is commonly known as the hoarding disorder? Did I just hear a ‘yes’? Well, you’re not alone in this because you’ve got my back, girl. Be it lipsticks, makeup products, skincare, cute packaging, empty bottles or containers, nail paints, stationery and what not; I love storing them all. My mind would weave a scenario wherein I’d really need these. There are times when I would assume that a particular container will be using for some DIY project. But that hardly happens. Currently, I’m thinking about making a terrarium. They are hell expensive on websites and I ain’t going to spend that much on mere plants. If I do manage to create one, I’d probably also make a blog post dedicated exclusively on that. Today we shall be unboxing an affordable jewellery subscription box which has been available in India since few months.
So as I was saying, jewellery is bae! Be it rings, bracelets or earrings; you will…
