Hand-made Artisanal Milk Chocolate Bar by Jus’ Trufs .This is a very special milk chocolate, made in India, from Single Origin Cocoa Beans grown in South India. It has a distinctive note of cocoa, and the reduced sugar content makes for a surprisingly smooth chocolate. I quite enjoyed having it as I am a big a big fan of cocoa flavour and this one surely has a higher content of cocoa.
Q Factor: Free from any emulsifiers or soy lecithin.
Fig and Raisin Jam from Martha’s Preserves is a treat!. Martha’s Preserves is all about Gourmet Jams and Sauces Which are 100% naturals. It has no preservatives, no added colour and it’s homemade. I am a sucker for organic products and so with Martha’s Preserves, I really couldn’t ask for more!
Q Factor: These jams are different from other jams because they are natural, homemade, and they contain fruit pieces in them. These are made by hand and not by machines. These jams and sauces are delicious, tasty and good for health.

I ordered Areev Cocoa Cream Body Lotion it had a deep hydrating effect on the skin. A 75 ml bottle costs around Rs 275, a bit expensive but totally worth it!

I am a self-proclaimed caffeine lover, so you can imagine how happy I was to receive this aromatic coffee from Buma Devi Blend Coffee House.
