Banggood Review

I want to share my own experiences with banggood.com for those who are not sure to order.

When i visited the site for the first time i doubted whether i should place an order or not. After viewing the site and the reviews, i placed an order that i received after 3 weeks. I have ordered several times now and had one time a problem that i had not received my order after waiting for a month. After contacting the Customerservice through live chat and told them what i had not received. The employee suggested a new order in which i received within three weeks. I do not know what went wrong but it was quickly solved. You should keep in mind that your order can be divided into two orders, but the good thing is that the shipping is free.

Banggood ReviewI actually do not remember the price but it was no more than 3 euros. The colour is pure white with gold edges and the quality is actually good.

This multifunction wallet is good solid quality that i like to use when i don’t want to carry a bag, but still want to bring my phone, money and cards. The only downside is that it has no zipper for your coins. They also sell in other colors such as coffee, pink and red.

MONTHLY FAVOURITES | DECEMBER

Garnier/ Clinique
No. 1 fan of the cleansing water especially the one from Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water.
It is very easy, quick and effective way to remove makeup (even water proof mascara)!
After using the cleansing water I like to go over it with Clinique liquid facial soap mild.

Clinique
All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage is a rollerball that massages away bags as it brightens and refreshes the eye area. And believe me guys it feels really amazing rolling it on! I have been using it in the morning and night under my eye and also on my eyelids for couple of months now and have noticed that i have no longer multiple folds on my eyelids and also the puffiness is less visible.

The cool part is it is oil free, allergy tested, fragrance free and ophthalmologist (is a specialist in medical and surgical eye problems)tested.

After applying the eye serum I use also the Clinique Superdefense SPF 20 daily defense moisturizer for combination oily to oily. It is really creamy and it doesn’t feel heavy on my skin.

Catrice Lipstick
Ultimate Colour 370 In A Rosegarden is a pinkish nude lipstick shade that is wearable for every day look, and also has a creamy texture.

Essence Soo Glow!
Is a cream to powder highlighter in 10 Look On The Bright Side is easy to apply with
my fingers on my cheekbones and in the inner corners of my eyes for a beautiful shimmer.

Dr. Van Der Hoog
Calming Clay Moisturizing and Healing Powder Mask.
Hydrates and cleanses the skin and leaves it soft and supple again .
Pure kaolin absorbs impurities and helps remove dead skin cells. I use face masks like this one,
once a week.

Rose Jam Recipe

Rose Jam RecipeThis photo is taken by my sister with her Sony Xperia Z2 phone and it turned out amazing.

(The rest of the photos i took with my own phone Samsung galaxy s3 mini).

This was my first try to make a jam of the rose petals. My mom is really good in making jams especially in aubergine, quince, strawberry, figs etc.

Yesterday we went to the garden to pick some fresh vegetables.

When we saw the rose we decided to make jam of it, to try it out.

After we came home a let them sit in the bag for today and because they were wet (from the rain) so they started to change color. I threw away the discolored ones.

This is how they look like

 Rose Jam Recipe

 

What you need:

  • 440 gram Rose petals

  • 1 kilogram sugar

  • 800 gram water

  • 2 lemon

First you add from the 1 kg sugar 3 handful to the rose petals and 1 lemon juice and you mix it with your hand till you can squish the rose juice out a little bit. Then let it sit for 10 min.

Rose Jam Recipe

Meanwhile you cook the rest of the sugar and water.

When it starts boiling cook it for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes add the rose petals all in. Cook it for 50-60 minutes. The last minute add the other lemon juice.

After it’s done cooking put the hot pan in cold water to cool it down a bit so it stops overcooking and that helps with keeping the color nice.

It turned out red while it was pink :)). Of Course you can make it with red or white rose.

Rose Jam Recipe

It turned out really amazing.

 If you like rose itself and jam you must try it.
