Featuring the Exquisite jewellery collection from Caratlane

Caratlane

When I was a young girl, my mom used to take me and my sister for Dhanteras shopping. I used to completely dread the idea of going to the jewellery shop and buying those antic pieces in the name of gold jewellery. I had accepted the fact that I don’t like gold jewellery anymore. The old school indian jewellery designs spoilt it for me. They lack the youthfulness, charm and elegance in their collection and there is nothing new to look forward to. Recently, I got engaged and my fiancée gave me a beautiful diamond ring from the house of Caratlane. The staff at the Caratlane, Infinity Mall Malad has become like a family. They helped us to get the best discount on my ring and arranged my ring size in no time. I couldn’t stop staring at the make and shine of this beautiful rock on my finger.

So I took the opportunity to visit the Caratlane store at Infinity Mall, Malad again and introduce you to their latest collection.

Jaipur is the latest collection inspired by royalty of Jaipur and designed for everybody. The collection reminds you of the rich, glorious palaces of Jaipur. I am wearing this beautiful royal pink ring known as the Rambagh Dome ring and the Rambagh Pond Drop Earrings.

Next is my absolute favourite, this collection is known as Butterfly- The Spirit of You. This collection is for the free spirited woman who once was an amateur and turned her dreams into reality. It celebrates the woman who transformed into her authentic self. It is a true example of caterpillar turning into a butterfly.

Butterfly- The Spirit of You : Caratlane

Wore the Flare blue Butterfly ring from this range and Flitter Blue Butterfly Earcuffs. This collection will add style statement to your outfits.

Butterfly- The Spirit of You : Caratlane

Bombay Deco is a tribute to the Mumbai city. I am born and brought up in the city of dreams and cannot imagine my life elsewhere. The jewellery in this collection is designed in a manner that compliments the art deco buildings that adorn the skylines of Mumbai.  Some of these building are the famous Liberty Theatre and the Eros Theatre in South Mumbai.

Lotus known as the Timeless Muse has some of the best lotus design in its collection that can be perfect for daily wear. This gorgeous Lotus swing necklace paired with Lotus swing earrings got my heart set on it. I am surely picking these two during my wedding shopping.

That was the four latest collections from Caratlane. Apart from this I also liked this charming Lupine Wood Grain pendant Bodhi leaf pendant necklace from the Aaranya collection. Isn’t it aesthetic?

Dress your Best with Modabridal.co.uk

Hello Divas,

Wedding Guest dresses 2016
Wedding Guest dresses 2016

Dresses are my weakness! I enjoy buying dresses from international websites because I am so sure I will never find the print, pattern, quality in Indian market. Don’t get me wrong! But you may already know how difficult it is to get a beautiful gown in Indian market. So my birthday is approaching and I am collecting things for myself. If you know me already every year I’ve been wearing a beautiful evening dress/one-piece on my birthday. That’s because birthday is the only day when you are pampered more often than unusual (unless you have a Prince Charming or something :-P) Also I loveeee to dress up like a Princess on my birthday  even my birthday cake comes with the name “Princess” on it. I spent crazy hours on the internet to buy any stuff. You know being a blogger makes you a research expert looking out for reviews and images etc. So today, I want to talk about this website called Modabridal.co.uk. I have been drooling over the collection on their website. They have everything from Wedding dresses for the Brides to Special Occasion dresses like a Prom dress, cocktail dresses or a simple maxi dresses. Apart from dresses they have a wide collection on shoes and accessories like Veils, Tiaras, Jewellery sets. Isn’t that awesome? This is like buying your whole outfit from a website without running to different shops.

About Modabridal.co.uk

Our company can help you. As we continue to grow, we can maintain our high standards and we are always looking for ways to improve.

Currently they are running upto 90% off on all dresses which kept in awe. I was keen on trying and shortlisting few dresses for birthday. I kept on discovering more on the website and found that they also have dresses for mothers on the website. That is really cool!  It gave me an impression that they have a dress for every kind of women and occasion. They are definitely not very cheap but I would say they are not even expensive. I remember spending 4,500 INR on my last to last birthday dress. I am not saying go buy a dress for 5k. Not at all, but you can consider buying on special occasion like if you are a bridesmaid or on Christmas, a cocktail party of your bestie etc. Let me show you a glimpse of few dresses that I liked from every section.

Mermaid Evening Dress

One of the important factors while doing international shopping is the shipping policy. They have two shipping methods and they ship worldwide, one is DHL and EMS. DHL usually takes 2-4 business days while EMS takes 3-8 business days. Also if there is any quality issue with product they give a refund if supported with evidence like a photo/video of the product. Alternatively, you can live chat or send a mail to customer service for any doubts or clarifications. If you wish to buy any of the dresses above you can get it on Modabridal-Dresses Online UK.

Hope you like my post. Let me know which dress is your favourite and what is the occasion you would like to wear it?

My Beauty Shopping Experience with APLAVA!

Hello beauties,

My Beauty Shopping Experience with APLAVA!
My Beauty Shopping Experience with APLAVA!

Being a beauty junkie, I am always on a look to buy new products.  I would love to go shopping but definitely not in this heat. Also it’s practically impossible for me, considering that I work 5 days a week. I love online shopping more than offline. That’s because online beauty products are easily available and you don’t have to travel from one shop to another. I have noticed that we have very few online beauty shopping websites in India. There were many choices when I started blogging but now there are just 2 or 3 websites. Today, I want to reveal this new online beauty shopping website called “APLAVA”. For the one who is curious to know what APLAVA means? Aplava (pronounced “AAp luv” in original sanskrit) means taking a bath to purify oneself. It’s an ablution process of cleansing oneself. Just as the name suggests, Aplava wants to give its customers an experience of divine purity. Beauty is you! Aplava has this unique blend of some household and foreign brands. If you ask me what struck me to buy from this website? It will be definitely due to some fresh brands like Bodyography, Natio, Kronokare , Mememe, Wild Earth etc.

My Experience with Aplava.com –

I ordered for three products from Aplava.com and I received my order within 4 days i.e I ordered on Monday and received it on Thursday. I believe that’s Not bad at all! I was expecting it to come within 7-8 days because that’s what the shipment message said. However, everything came pretty fast and all the products were cutely packed in a box. I also received a coupon code for my next order. There was no damage whatsoever with my order. Also, they had kept me updated by sending sms about my shipment. I was really confused as to what to pick from the whole range. Because my mind said that I should try new brands and my heart said ‘Ohhhh, you always wanted that Revlon highlighting palette.’ I just gave in and bought the Revlon highlighting palette in Rose Glow 020, Faces Ultimate Pro lipstick in Read my lip 07 (badly wanted) and the L’Oreal Magique Compact Powder G2. I checked the expiry and if they were genuine. They were all genuine products with nowhere near to expiry. Now I am sure to go again and again to the website to play with the new brands. Also they have great offers running always. Some brownie points about Aplava is that they send a complimentary sample with every order which is really cool. They offer free shipping over orders above 999. There is so much to like about this website, here I am talking about the personalised beauty advice. We all are different skintypes and also have different skincolor. We always try to find a blogger of our complexion online to know what would suit us? With Aplava’s beauty experts you can take a test and find out what will suit your needs and get them delivered at your doorstep. Sounds easy peasy? Isn’t it? I have so many girlfriends and sometimes its so difficult to figure out what to gift a friend? Once I gifted a lipstick to a friend and she told me she already had that shade. Soooo…. I made a boo-boo! I am so glad Aplava came up with a concept of Giftcards. Now you can gift your mother, sister, girlfriend just with what they want without exactly knowing what they want? Haha.. If you know what I mean? They have giftcards ranging from 500 to 10,000. Oh by the way, they are running some amazing offers on lip-balms online. I am a sucker for lip-balms and I finish it faster than my lipsticks. With so many options you can spoil yourself.

My Beauty Shopping Experience with APLAVA!
My Beauty Shopping Experience with APLAVA!

Recommendation: –  To sum it up, I am truly happy and it was a great shopping experience with Aplava. I am soon going to order some more from the website. I think you should totally checkout this website if you like trying new brands and also for the offers.  I couldn’t find any Con. I just want them to get all the drugstore brands like Colorbar, Make Up revolution, Nyx etc so that it becomes easy for us to buy everything under one roof.

Did you shop from Aplava yet? What are you planning to haul?

Love,

Skin18.com Haul and Website Review

Hello beauties,

skin18.com website review
skin18.com website review

Summers are here and I have a love/hate relationship with this weather. I love it because it is supposed to be the vacation time of the year. Its time to bring out our shorts, skirts, rompers and flaunt some skin. On the other hand, I absolutely hate the unwanted tans, blemishes and ageing of skin. If you want to enjoy the holidays, you have to take care of your skin. I’ve learned the hard way that Skin comes first and Make up afterwards. Last year, I wholly dedicated and have undergone treatment to take care of my skin and the results are acne-free, no blemish skin. Now I am in love with skincare products. I believe healthy skin can make you look beautiful even without makeup. So our Focus should be Skin first. Having said that, today I am going to review about this Korean beauty website SKIN18.Com. I have heard and experienced myself that Korean skincare products are awesome. We have beauty centre in Mumbai which sells some Korean skincare products but they are not consistent and suddenly out of shelf when you need them. Skin18.com was kind enough to approach me to review their products and the timing was just perfect… Summers!

About Skin18.com

Our guarantee is to ensure all products placed in our website are good for your skin.

Skin18 has sent me some 17 samples and I have received it within 15 days from dispatch. That was pretty quick because in Mumbai the customs usually hold the parcel coming any corner of the world. Thankfully, there was no customs charge because it mentioned $5.00 also it was “gift” marked. All the samples were intact and had extremely cute packaging. I love the packaging of Korean products. If you wish to try the samples you can purchase them by paying a minimal shipping fee. Also I love the fact that they have so many freebies, samples, giveaways and subscription box for their customers. They have extremely caring and nice people in customer service. The customer service keep you updated with your order time to time. They have this subscription box where you can choose skincare products according to your skintype and they will send it across to you. For that, you definitely need to tell them clearly what is your skintype?  Here are the products that I have received from Skin18.com

I tried the Red Ginseng White Clean Active Mask and went totally head over heels over this mask. My face look really tired after a hectic day at work and I had to go out for a dinner. I have put this mask on my face for nearly 15-20 mins. And my face looked so glowing, cold, clean and bright as if I have just done a facial. My mom asked me if I have taken a nap while using this mask. Honestly, I didn’t because the thought of getting ready and leaving asap never let me sleep. So I was clear it was the mask.  After few days I tried the Pomegranate 7skin scheduler Saturday Vital Mask and the results were same. Clear, bright, soft, healthy, cool glowing skin post usage. I can now declare that Skin18 products really work and offer awesome benefits to the skin. No wonder Korean beauties look so young and graceful all the time. I am surely going to order more products once I finish all of these.

I am very keen on trying the serums now. I will keep you posted with the progress of my skin with the serums. In the meanwhile, do check out Skin18.com for a plethora of skincare masks, serums, moisturisers and more in affordable price. They offer free shipping on order of $40.00 otherwise it is $3.00. I bet you will love the K beauty.

Dress like a Diva with Promtimes.co.uk

Hello Divas,

Today I want to introduce Promtimes.co.uk which is an amazing online shopping destination for dresses. I know you would say, “We don’t even celebrate Prom here in India.” Trust me; our culture has revolutionized so much over the years. I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up adding a date for Prom night. We Indians are leading when it comes to celebration. We have started celebrating “Halloween.” There is a festival of every season and reason. Gone are the days where we used to wear lehenga choli for every function. Now a day’s everyone wants to wear a cocktail/Indo-western dress for an event. Then there are bridesmaid and wedding dresses for reception party. One of my closest friend is getting married and while she is throwing her bachelorette party. We both are hunting for good dresses in budget and everything at the shop here looked so tacky to wear. There is just no variety when it comes to dresses in Indian market.

Promtimes.co.uk has some breath taking dresses for every occasion. There are long, short, evening maxi dresses, dresses for brides and bridesmaid, dresses according to colour, size and shape, dresses under £50 and £100. You cannot just help pick one. Also they have amazing offers and deals running around the year. Currently they have Upto 75% off + Free Shipping over £200.  Fab, Isn’t it?  I am a sucker for cheap dresses because I know I am not going to wear it frequently. They have to be good quality yet cheap. This website looks great if you want to make a group order for your girlies during wedding season. All the dresses are unique and one of a kind. There is absolutely no chance of “being common” which we girls threat about. They have huge collection to pick from and the patterns and cuts are absolutely creative. My favourite amongst the lot is the one with sequence. Check out my picks below :

gown dresses

evening dresses

Hello Shopaholic’s,

CouponzGuru
CouponzGuru – Shop More, Save More!

You are surely a superwoman when you are a girlfriend/wife, a blogger and a working woman. While we play different roles in the society we need to dress for it. Well, I love dressing up, eating good food, travelling places, shopping and my hobbies are endless. But all of this comes as a huge cost and then we also have to think about savings. These days I usually take Uber to travel back home from work. (late working hours you see). I was looking for a code that would give me discount on my Uber ride. There are enormous coupon codes available online and to figure out the genuine ones in a hurry can be such a task. That’s when I tumbled down to CouponzGuru and I am glad I did! This website has got some kickass coupon codes and deals for all the major brands like Uber, Jabong, Myntra, Snapdeal, Abof, Makemytrip, Amazon, Flipkart, Zivame, Craftsvilla, Healthkart, Firstcry and the list goes on.

CouponzGuru - Shop More, Save More
CouponzGuru

To give you a brief introduction, Couponzguru is one of the first coupon websites to start in India. They started in 2011 with around 10-15 merchants like Makemytrip, Yatra, Myntra, Snapdeal and few more. They are adding new merchants on their website almost daily and the merchant list is growing each day. CouponzGuru topmost priority is their customers and the user experience at the site. They validate and check each and every coupon manually to make sure that correct information is provided to every user. I have the delivery guy knocking my door almost daily, I can buy anything online from a pin to a plane. I am too pretty to look for a parking space. 😛 CouponzGuru has been my partner in crime in all the purchases I have done lately. I like the fact that I don’t have to go to 10 different websites to find a coupon code. CouponzGuru has been the “BAAP” of the coupon world and covers every domain like you can see in the above picture.

CouponzGuru - Shop More, Save More!
CouponzGuru

Also the website is well very structured and organized. It is extremely user friendly and clean. I hate looking at websites which looks all cluttered. I will never take so much of pain to go through several links just to get a code. CouponzGuru has taken efforts to keep the website as hassle-free as one can. The process to get a code is simple and straight. All you have to do is click on the coupon code, CTRL + C and CTRL + V. Now which website offers deals for Banks? This website has come up with this revolutionary category exclusive for Banks. Now you know which of your credit/ debit cards is offering you more savings. I end up using my HDFC card more to avail discounts from here thereby increasing my reward points. You can even buy your vegetables from Grofers using deals from here. I book tickets for my friends and family using the codes and grab some amazing deals from referral codes too. Oh and I love ordering from KFC using the code every weekend. If you are a busy professional or even a homemaker, do try CouponzGuru before going to any X,Y,Z coupon code dealer. It will not only save your money but also your time.

Lots of Love,

Ric

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com!

Hello beauties,

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

I know its been like ages that I have pen down something. I have been MIA from Snapchat, Instagram etc. Nevertheless, Life look much sorted now and things started looking up. I got a new job which I will be starting from Monday. I am pretty excited and nervous. I realised that a person should never sit idle. An idle mind is a devil’s workshop. I took a break from my work and I am resuming soon. Well, I want to share my beauty shopping experience from Jabong.com. Like I said, I am going to start with work soon so I thought let’s do a bit of shopping and get myself all worked up. I bought few formal shirts and blouses, got a few scarves. While I was looking for that perfect office wear lipstick, I reached Jabong. Its quite rare that we girls buy cosmetics from Jabong.com. We usually go to that beauty centric website to buy something because we think we’ll get a better discount there. I was eyeing the Lakme 9 to 5 Range collection for office wear shades.

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

I compared across all platforms and found Jabong selling the Lakme lipsticks at the cheapest price. I received this at a discounted price of Rs. 360 originally it is for Rs. 450. Quite a deal..Isn’t it? The 9 to 5 range is the best when you are looking for basic pinks, browns and mauves which are wearable and also feels comfortable on lips. I love the lakme 9 to 5 range for the light feel and longevity. I have loads of bright lipsticks and hardly any nude or browns. As usual, my order arrived within 3 days with proper bubble wrap packaging. The lipstick was housed in Jabong’s small cardboard orange box. That is something rare!

Beauty Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

So this is how the shade looks on me.. It gives me a feel of “My lips but better”. The shade Red chaos is nowhere near to Red like you can see. Don’t know what Lakme was thinking while naming the shades? But I am happy with the texture, shade and longevity.  Jabong is my online shopping destination for apparels but now I can trust the website for beauty buying too. I loved the endless discounts they have on major brands. If there is no sale one can always make use of Jabong coupons to buy the products pending in the wishlist. I do this often, I keep collecting things in my cart and as soon as there is any discounts or coupons available. I quickly go ahead and make the purchase. I have bought stuff like NIKE, PUMA, VERO MODA using the trick.  And now I do the same with L’Oreal, Make up Revolution etc. Do check out Jabong.com for the latest offers on clothes, beauty etc. I can’t share everything on blog so those of you who want to see my purchases. Follow me on snapchat: erica.eleganza.  I share my life on Snapchat which includes a lot of shopping of course 😛

January 2016 Fab Bag Review

Hello Beauties,

JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

So after winning the December FAB BAG, I wanted to try the January FAB BAG. I cannot deny the fact that this cute little pouch of the January bag was the sole reason of the purchase. I was hoping to get the BBlunt Hair polish, Bellapierre Mineral lipstick or the Laqa nail polish pen. Sadly I didn’t receive any of these, so I am a little disappointed with my January Fab bag. Also I ordered on 11th January and received on 31st January, I always receive my Fab bag’s way too late. I don’t understand why? Why you no hurry up my Fab bag? One of the reasons why I am reviewing the January Bag in February? LOL.. Can’t help it! I was happy with my December Fab bag which included Sugar cosmetics Scarlett O’hara lipstick. Let’s see what’s in my January Bag?

JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
  • Votre Face Serum Full Size – Rs. 1670 for 12ml.
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

I have heard a lot about this serum. On my face, serums work better than moisturiser. I like to apply it during night and get up with a brightened face. The fragrance of this is amazing more like roses. It claims to reduce fine lines and brighten the complexion. I am yet to try this out.

  • Natural Bath & Body Clay Mask – Rs. 450 for 100 ml.
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

This clay mask claims to cleanse, detoxify and exfoliate the skin. I like such travel size product which makes it easy to carry in your pouch. Again the smell of this clay mask is fresh. I am eager to use this as I personally love clay mask.

  • Natural Whipped Cream – RS, 275 for 50ml
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

This whipped cream disappears in the skin. My skin is on the combination side, it keeps my skin well hydrated and tingling fresh. I guess it’s the lemony fragrance. Again a travel friendly product which is meant to nourish, soften and tone the skin.

  • Seasoul Dead Sea Minerals & Botanicals Massage Candle – Rs. 300 for 50ml.
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

The product claims to relax, revive and rejuvenate our body. This is enriched with 100% pure dead sea minerals, vitamins A,B,C,E & F for soft supple skin. I like the unique concept of this massage candle. Once the candle melts down we need to use the leftout oil as massage oil. This can be use as a hydrating potion after a bath.

  • Fran Wilson Mood Matcher Lipstick Orange – Rs. 590
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW
JANUARY FAB BAG 2016 REVIEW

I got an option to pick a product at the end of the cart. I guess because they were running low on stock. Hence, I chose this mood matcher lipstick. On application, it looked transparent but after sometime it turned into hot pink tint. Quite interesting..Eh?  This is great to use on days when you don’t feel like applying lipstick.

I like the Fab bag concept of sending products every month that we do not reckon. And the products are definitely worth more than the price we pay. However, I feel that I usually get the bag late and that’s pretty annoying at times. I liked the VOTRE face serum but I am upset that they didn’t send me products that I was looking forward. Hoping that in future they come out with more interesting products so that I am tempted enough to purchase.

So did you also buy the January Fab bag? What products did you get?

My H(o)aul from Sephora, Studio West, Forever 21 and more!

Hello Sunshine,

HAUL

On this bright Sunday morning, I felt like doing a bit of activity. I have shopped like crazy in last month so I thought let me show you things that I bought and few of them are gifts which I got. By the way this is my first haul post on my blog. I am super shopaholic. These days the courier fella comes daily at my door. My mom has totally given up on me; she knows inspite of telling her so much she is still going to shop. I went bonkers in December and January. I tried to control so much but the deals were way too tempting and I promised myself once the sale gets over. I am going on a diet shopping. Also, Sephora opened their store in Mumbai, the one and only at Palladium Mall, Lower Parel. I won their launch contest and got VIP access to Sephora store and I was amongst the first 5 customer (including Kangana Ranawat) who was inside the store. I also received few goodies and got to get my hands on the products before the crazy crowd outside.  So lets go check what all I have….

HAUL

So I bought the Daily Smooth Soap and Glory Body Butter full size, the fragrance is awesome and keeps my skin hydrated for long. Sephora Rouge Cream lipstick in Mr. Lover R10 which I found a gorgeous shade and Sephora nourishing lip balm which is amazingggg! It keeps my super chapped lips soft and smooth. Love this! The goodies I received were the Benefit Dream Invisible Sunscreen and Thierry Mugler perfume in Alien. Yippie!!!

HAUL

Next I bought the Studio West Cosmetics from Westside. Bidisha from mermaidbidisha was too excited to try this range and suggested that I should check out this brand. So I went to Westside especially to get few of these. Let me tell you they are amazeballs. Especially the eyeshadow trio and lipstick from Pure passion. So I picked 2 nailpolish, 262 tropical crush and 560 Hot coral. Maaya Radiance Blush in M04-Bronze which I use as a bronzer because I wanted one and not a blush. I like this for contouring. Maaya Crystal Eyeshadow in M03- Goldmine. This is such a gorgeous trio, absolutely beautiful texture and superb pigmentation. Pure Passion lipstick in Hint of Brick which is a unique shade, lasting colour for the price.

Then I went to Forever 21 and picked up these small cuties. The love & beauty beautyblender/make up sponge, another make up sponge and eyebrow razor (2pieces). The Real techniques brushes are from Amazon and they are soft as fur. It’s the sculpting brush and blush brush. Blush brush is big and fluffy which also makes it a great powder brush. Absolute love material!

HAUL

Here I have 20 make up wedges from QVS, Maybelline superstay lipstick in Non stop red (repurchased), Faces Ultimate Pro Lip crayon in Midnight Rose and Sugar Coated with sharpener. I also picked up a lip contour pencil from Faces, it’s the shade Coral Pink. I got the go chic lip gloss Caramefised free with the purchase. The Body Shop lip balm in Raspberry and Plum Kajal. Most of these are from Beauty Centre. Only the make up wedges is from Westside.

HAUL

Cetaphil daily advance ultra hydrating lotion is my saviour this winter. When everything failed on me, I picked this up and it really works on the drier parts of my face. I am combination skin but the dry areas are getting super dry in this season and this fixed it. Then I got this cute hand mirror from Beauty Centre in Silver. Quite Handy Eh!

HAUL

Last but not the least is the love I received from Michigan based Indian Youtuber Bidisha. She is like my bestie, I loved meeting her and Priyanka. When I met Bidisha I never felt I am meeting her for the first time. That’s because we keep Facetiming each other regularly. I love the fact how generous she has been with the gifts and she just knew what exactly I wanted. I never even had to tell her what I wanted. There is NYX Aria Lipstick, Milani lipstick in Nude Crème, Milani Blush in Berry amore, Fake eyelashes from Kiss, Covergirl SuperSizer Mascara, Glam Chick Make Up Kit, a floral hand bracelet, a cute lil’ pouch with a hand written note. Thank You Doll! <3

Lots of Love,

My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com!

Hello Divas,

My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com
My Online Shopping Experience with Jabong.com

With this EOSS sale, I went crazy shopping from everywhere. If you are following me on Snapchat (id – erica.eleganza) you will know how I shopped like there is No tomorrow. I have been doing Online shopping from the time I’ve become a beauty blogger. Online shopping + shifting to a new home have made me super lazy to go anywhere. And why go somewhere when you have such a huge variety online. So it happened this way that I crossed my limits on shopping and every day there is this new courier fella coming to my doorstep. My mom was super angry that I was spending so much. So I thought I’ll restrict myself. I was really eyeing this “PUMA” tee on Jabong.com which was on a major discount. I didn’t know what to do I just added it to my wishlist and kept coming to Jabong every day admiring it and going back.  I think the UNIVERSE heard me and Jabong guys offered me Jabong Coupons to shop with them and share the experience.

So along with the “Puma” tee I ordered As ORIGINAL track pants from American Swan because I thought the pair will rock as a Zumba Outfit. I received my order within 3 days. I don’t need to introduce Jabong.com I guess by now all of us know what is Jabong.com?  Jabong has always provided on time delivery and I swear by this website for shipping, quality and variety. I can tell you this because I have been shopping from this website from past 3years and it never failed me. I didn’t have a single bad experience with Jabong yet *touchwood* and I hope it continues.

Honestly, if it wasn’t Jabong! I personally would have never gone to a PUMA store to purchase a tee from them. That’s because a store will never get me such a huge discount on their brand. I bought this using the Jabong coupons on discount for Rs. 649 and the actually MRP is Rs. 999.  The As Original trackpants too priced 1499 INR and I got them for 613 INR. I felt like I bagged a great deal. Everything came intact with the tags, nicely bubble wrapped and the products were all genuine.

And this is my SNAPCHAT picture when I wore this to Zumba the other day. All my friends loved my outfit and asked where did I get my stuff from? The clothes were extremely comfy and it fit me to the T. Jabong.com is currently offering great discounts on Sports brands like NIKE, PUMA, REEBOK, ADIDAS etc. There is a sale upto 80% off with free shipping on most brands. Jabong is my go to website whenever it comes to shopping on brands. I am sure to find discounts here. Need I say more? My picture says it all.  So if you are still waiting for my final verdict. Yes, JABONG is my favourite shopping destination. Hands down!

Lots of Love!
