5 Reasons to Shop Online|
Guys, the shopping season is here! Valentine’s Day is almost here and a lot of us are still planning to shop for their loved ones. Today, I thought of talking about a few things that might be apt for this shopping season. I know there are a lot of people who still prefer to shop at the stores but I personally do not like the idea. Though for some particular things I need to visit the stores but 99% of the time I go for online shopping. It’s just my thing. I am going to share why I prefer online shopping over mall hopping.

1. No Queues, No Crowd.
The thing freaks me out the most when I go for shopping is the crowd. You can’t properly see an item and you have to make quick decisions or the item you eyed for will be gone, forever. I don’t like to be forced to choose things for purchase, to be pushed by the crowd in a store. That’s why I always prefer online shopping which allows you to shop from wherever you are, may be from your bedroom, wearing your PJs, listening to your favourite track. Ah, that’s my idea of shopping!

2. No Need to Roam around the Mall for One Piece of Garment.

Have you experienced something like this? Were you ever in search for something but couldn’t find it in the store you thought you might find it in? Well, that happened to me many times. I now don’t like searching for something in a mall rather, I search for it online. It gives me more chances to filter and find the one I want, if not the exact then the one very close to that.

3. Doorstep Delivery.

When you are shopping online, you don’t have to think about carrying the truckload of things you purchased. You just have to relax and wait for the doorbell to ring. Every time you receive a package, it’s like birthday presents from you to yourself. You are nothing less than a prince/princess!

4. Discounts!!

The best thing about online shopping is the huge discounts that most of the e-commerce sites offer you throughout the year. A beauty/fashion blogger like me could not get anything better than this! Every week the e-shopping portals add some new collections from different brands. I am a student and I admit I don’t get enough pocket money to renew my wardrobe every season unless I get attractive deals. Some e-commerce sites also offer coupons or cashback offers which are great. Shop with IndusInd Bank credit card. I have to say this is the number one reason why I love shopping online.

5. Gift Anyone Across the Country without paying extra for Postal Services

This option has saved my life! You know how difficult is to gift someone residing far away from your place. I have most of my family members residing in different cities. Online shopping has become my rescuer now as I can send gifts to my friends and family without paying for postal services or courier services. I can order gifts with my own money to anywhere I like. Life couldn’t have been any simpler.

Hello people, happy Diwali to all of you! I am sure you guys are busy decorating your homes. Those who are reading this post today leaving your work, Thank You So Much! Today, I am going to share my experience about an international shopping portal named I am sure a lot of you are familiar with the name. This website has been a favourite of a lot of people for years. I myself have seen a lot of bloggers have reviewed this site on their blogs. 
Recently I got contacted by Team Sammydress and they wanted me to review their website and share my opinion with you guys to which I readily agreed as I am a shopaholic and I love trying different websites (okay, this sentence is super long!) They also provided me with a voucher to shop with. So, here is my review- website review and haul| Cherry On Top Blog

About is basically a wholesale supplier of latest Men’s and Women’s clothing, shoes, bags and other accessories. All their items are of latest fashion and design but cheaply priced. The $10-$15 dollar items are also very impressive. They claim to be one of the  world’s largest fashion catalogs on trendsetting high quality products and styles. website review and haul| Cherry On Top Blog website review and haul| Cherry On Top Blog

Shopping with

I placed my order with on 9th of September and I received it on 26th October which is really a long time but there is something I want you to know. On 10th of October, I mailed the PR who ordered the stuff for me and asked for the current status of my order. It was already one month and I was a little too worried. She told me that the package is stuck with the Indian customs, it had already reached the Kolkata hub. I was relieved but not completely. I have had heard a lot of things about the customs and believe you me, they were not that pleasant. On 26th October, I received the package, totally intact. 
Payment, Shipping, Return and Packing offers a number of payment options like Credit Cards, Paypal, Western Union money transfer etc. With so much options your shopping is always smooth and easy.  
My order was under $25 and I did not have to pay for shipping or customs. 
They offer a 30 return policy for wrong size, wrong shipments, damaged product, missing items or partial delivery.  
The package in which the products came in was absolutely well packed, there was no sign of damage and the items inside it was in good condition. 

My Experience

Prior to my order I had googled for the website numerous times and I saw a few claims that is not legit and it’s a scam. But, I had to chuck them off because I did not have any problem with the shopping and the items as well. All the items I got was very well packed, in perfect condition and they are of really good quality. I did not have any issue with the sizing or the fit of the items I got. No doubt, they sell quality products. I did not have to contact the customer care service so can’t tell much about that but the PR was really supportive and replied to my mails instantly. I hope the customer care service for non-bloggers are good in the same way. 
Recommendations from

I have already told you that has a variety of quality apparels, shoes, bag and accessories for men and women. Most of the products they sell are really attractive and are worth a try. If you are about to place your first order and don’t know what to purchase, I would highly recommend you to try their dresses and shoes. They have an array of good quality dresses and accessories under $25 which is a great deal. You should try this website once because the items are dirt cheap for their quality. 
Haul from

Here are the items I got from website review and haul| Cherry On Top Blog

1. V-Neck Layered Ruffles Hem Chiffon Pleated Dress ($6.58)
2. Casual Scoop Neck Lace-Up Solid Color Sleeveless Dress ($10.75)

Hello people, Durga Puja is round the corner and I am finally done with my shopping! I did not purchase a lot of things but I took a lot of time deciding what to buy. I am sure there are a lot of people who are still struggling with that. Plus, some are still shopping for the upcoming festival of Diwali. As all the leading shopping portals are running huge deals and discounts on their products, I thought of talking about a coupon site with which you can make the most of the deals. The site I am going to talk about today is a very popular coupon site named I am sure a lot of you guys have heard of this site. Anyway, let’s know more about this site-
CouponzGuru is one of the leading coupon sites in India since 2011. Even they are one of the first coupon websites to start in India. These information are very clearly mentioned on their site. With over hundreds of merchants, they surely rule the world of coupons.

Not only shopping sites, they also have deals and discount codes for restaurants, flight bookings and hotels. They give you exciting offers like 50% discounts on hotel and flight bookings, 70% discounts on fashion. These are a part of their daily deals segment. The best thing about CouponzGuru is that all the coupons are validated manually by the team before putting them up. This ensures that the customers never get an invalid or outdated coupon at any cause.
If you are a shopaholic like I am then you would surely know the importance of discount coupons. Because at the end of the day what we save matters more than what we spend.

Hi guys, so I am finally back after being MIA for a long. A lot has happened to me and my life has completely changed since my last post. I am not in a state to discuss about it in this post. Some of you might know it but for the rest I will try to talk about it in a life update post. Today, I wanted to share my experience of an recent online purchase from a new online store in the block named This review was long due since I made my purchase in late June. So, without further ado let me quickly share my views on this website and show you what I got from there.

Aplava derives its name from sanskrit origins. Aplava (pronounced “AAp luv” in original sanskrit) means taking a bath to purify oneself. It’s an ablution process of cleansing oneself. is a startup online beauty store which brings to you the best quality Indian and and international brands together. They have stocked almost everything from skincare to babycare. The best thing about this site is that they work directly with the manufacturers or authentic distributors which guarantees you get the authentic product every time you shop. Another thing that I liked about this site is that you get recommendations on products that suits your requirements. These recommendations are based on your Beauty Score that you are asked to calculate at the time you register. 

What is My Beauty Score?

My Beauty Score is nothing but a questionnaire that you are asked to fill up at the time you register for Aplava. This questionnaire includes a few questions that helps the team to understand your beauty needs or skin concerns and recommend the best products on your search. I found my Beauty Score is 48% which is pretty low 🙁

My experience: 
On June 27th I made my very first purchase from I decided to get a mix of makeup and skincare products. I got the MeMeMe Flawless Concealer that I always wanted in my life along with the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic, the Street Wear Color Rich Ultra Moist Lip Color in Pink Persuasion  and Just Herbs Almond Complexion Face PackI received the my products on 4th of July which is pretty fast for my address. I am quite satisfied with the delivery. The package arrived safely with all the products in excellent condition. The products were individually bubble wrapped. I did not have any issue with the shipping or with the products so I can’t really talk about the return or refund issues.

They give you an opportunity to ask the group of experts (including beauty experts and dermatologists) if you have any query. The Beauty Score thing totally worked for me as the products that were recommended for me were absolutely appropriate. The list of products is not much but I have to acknowledge that the catalogue they offer and the quality of brands as well as the products is way too rich despite them being a startup venture. 

Things That I Liked about

  • Over 3000 products from Indian and international brands to choose from. 
  • Product recommendation based on your need and concern by select experts. 
  • A chance to accumulate points from every product you purchase and redeem them. 
  • Free shipping over 1500 INR.
  • 10 days free return. 
  • 24×7 customer care service.
  • Easy navigation. 

Overall, I really liked this website. My experience with Aplava was very satisfactory. I wish to shop more often in future. I would like them to introduce more brands both high-end and drugstore soon. I hope you found this post helpful for your next shopping. Write down your favourite website for international beauty products. I will be back again with some new posts soon. Till then be safe and keep smiling!

Hey lovelies, how are you all? If you follow me on Facebook (if you don’t then do it now!), you would know that my hard disk was paining me so much resulting in no photo editing, no storage for documents and a series of haphazard situations. But, my boyfriend finally fixed the problem and now it’s all fine. This means I will be regular with posting new blog posts. Let’s see!

Today, I will be sharing with you a long overdue review of an online store named I think most of you would be familiar with this name. With a huge stock of clothes, accessories, cosmetics and household goods, Limeroad is surely on a par with the other leading online shopping sites. The best thing about Limeroad is that you can create your own fashion ensemble in their ‘Scrapbook’ sections and earn some LR Credits that can be redeemed while you buy something from them. Each credit is equivalent to one rupee. Isn’t that amazing?

My Shopping Experience with

I have shopped four times from them. My first order was a pair of brown wayfarer sunglasses that I am totally in love with. My first experience with them was really nice. I got the product exactly on time without any dispatch hassles. The packaging was really sturdy. You know how delicate sunglasses are! They need to be packed with proper care and Limeroad had looked after that. After that I bought another pair of blue aviators for my sister and again it was a pleasant experience. Recently (read 4 months ago) I bought two tops from them. One for me and the other for my sister. Here is a picture- 

My Shopping Experience with

How to create Scrapbooks? 

Creating look-book in the Scrapbook section is the most interesting part to me. I love dress-up games so when I am not shopping with Limeroad, I like to create looks that would reflect my style. It’s really very easy to create scrapbooks on Limeroad. You need to click on the ‘Scrapbook’ tab on the right of the page and then choose a template and add items. After you save the scrapbook you can see your LR Credits increase. These scrapbooks can be shared with others so that they know about your taste and get inspired. 

I am listing up a few things that I like about Limeroad-

  • Over a million styles, numerous brands and products at one place. 
  • Easy navigation.
  • Timely dispatch.
  • Cash on Delivery available.
  • Free shipping over Rs. 300
  • Supportive customer service. 
  • Secure packaging. 
  • Facility to earn points through creating scrapbooks. 

They also have a mobile app but I never found it to be enough helpful. I would rather prefer their website for shopping.

I hope this post is helpful for all of you who love online shopping. Would you give this site a try? What is your all time favourite online store? Let me know in the comments. As I said earlier, I am trying to be more regular with posting. So, yo may expect a new post mid-week. Till then be safe and keep smiling!

We all love to shop, especially ladies. Women shop for two reasons- firstly, necessity and lastly, impulsiveness. I consider myself as an impulsive shopper. I know a lot of you would tag yourselves as impulsive shoppers as well. Shopping in impulsion has its own consequences, most important of them being excessive expense. You could literally make a hole in your own pocket. But then there are a few cheat tricks that can keep a tight rein on your expenditure. I, myself, have a few formulas to save as much money as possible from a purchase. Let me share them with you-
1. Make a List: Before leaving for shopping, make a list of the things that you really need. A list won’t allow you to shop for unnecessary items. Sometimes we forget what we needed by the time we reach the shop. A list will remind you about the things you need so that you don’t get lost into the aisles full of alluring stuff. It also saves your valuable time.
2. Bring Cash: After making the list, make an estimate of how much money should be needed for certain purchase. Bring only that amount with you. It will make sure you won’t shop impulsively.
3. Shopping Online: Let it consider the boon of internet, shopping has never been easier than this. Online shopping has cleared the fence between possible and impossible. Shopping international products that you had never thought could be procured to your country, is now as easy as making a smoothie (pardon me for this bizarre comparison). The main reason why I love shopping online is because there are always some sales going on there. You can buy your desired article no matter where you live. Some products that are newly launched and you can’t find it in your area, online shopping is always the solution. Being a small town girl, I know that better than anybody. If you can’t find any deals in-store, you must find one online.
4. Coupons and Discounts: A lot of coupons sites are there that provide discount coupon codes and deals for your online purchase. They offer you some exclusive deals and discounts on several online stores that you might not have found before. You can get great deals on cosmetics, clothing, movie tickets, restaurants and many more. As an instance, if you are looking for exclusive discounts for a specific site, simply search for Online Discount Coupons for the site, and you will be navigated to your desired site and then you can choose your discount coupons as per your requirement.
5. Keep Yourself Focused: Now, this is all up to you. Just concentrate on what your need is and what would be unnecessary for that moment. When it comes to makeup products, we women don’t feel anything is unnecessary. We try to find out excuses like “I don’t have this particular shade of lipstick!” or “All my nail polishes would dry out in a few days!”, but we don’t realize that we are just being impulsive. If you really need to save money then don’t listen to the SA. He/She will tempt you saying “This will look great on you!” or “Buy ‘this’ and ‘that’ along with ‘these’ and you can get a free makeup pouch!”. You just say ‘NO’ because you have already bought what you needed the most. Ignore and make the payment and you will bring a happy wallet with you to home.

I hope these tips will be helpful for you. Try out yourselves and let me know if any of these worked for you or not. Also, if you have some money-saving tricks that you want to share with me, then feel free to write a comment. Be blessed.
