Happy Dussehra



Hi Everyone! Wish you all a very happy Dussehra. Today celebrates the conquest of Lord Rama over the demon king Ravana. Today marks the end of nine days long Navratri celebrations. I absolutely enjoyed the last few days celebrating with family and friends, hogging amazing food and of course thrift shopping during festival discount sales!

It has been a fun filled week. Few days back visited a friend's place where I got to see beautiful Dussehra dolls decorated at home. Two days ago, we had Navratri celebrations at office. Yesterday went to beautiful Mysore to see exhibition and Mysore palace. The view of Mysore palace at night was just breathtaking! Can't wait to catch the Dussehra parade tomorrow.

The best part about Indian festivals is shopping! My sister and I love getting ready in ethnic wear. We usually keep stalking online websites for festival discounts. There are few great sites such as CupoNation were you get discounts coupons for just about everything! Myntra is one of my favorite shop to pick up ethnic wear. Thanks to cuponation Myntra coupons I managed to pick up some amazing silk sarees for Navratri at pocket friendly prices.

I hope you liked my outfit for the festival! Today marks victory of good over evil. May this Dussehra burn all your worries with Ravana and bring loads of happiness and full fill all your dreams. Happy Dussehra again!

P.S. My Rosy Cheeks thanks to LO'real Paris Lucent Magique Blush. The first of a kind trio blush for gorgeous lustrous skin. The blush adds a luminous sheen to your sun-kissed skin with a soft & feathery touch!

Loot your discounts with Shop Pirate

I came across a very interesting couponing website other day. Never have I seen a coupon site with an interesting web layout. Alas! Shop Pirate is an amazing couponing website which lets you loot discounts! I am constantly searching for coupons to get better deals on branded products until today I had never found any website which made couponing a fun activity like Shop pirate has! I am impressed with the attention to detail and innovative way to make couponing fun!




I really like the idea of calling deals the "Black Pearls". The website reminded me of Pirates of Caribbean and Once Upon a Time (I am a huge Captain Hook fan!)

You can also become a Top Pirate on the website. All you have to do is just find deals and coupons and share them with the rest of the group on Shop Pirate. You are also required to share your experience on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Google+), to be at the top of pirate list. With each and every share you will be rewarded with coins and other bounty to mark your presence on the crew. Share more to get a chance to loot more bounty and discounts!



You can also find plethora of beauty and wellness couponsat Shop Pirate. I am really glad the website has aseparate section for wellness product. Considering the fact it is considered a taboo to talk about it in India, it is great to see websites not shying away. Don't forget to check out Shop Pirate Coupons and Shop Pirate, your one stop Pirate pit shop to loot discount coupons!

Khoobsurat Moment with L'Oréal Paris




I had amazing fun collaborating with L'Oréal Paris for the past one month. Alas! Everything good comes to an end. Sharing the last time my Khoobsurat moment in association with L'Oréal Paris. These photos were taken last week when I gifted my mom a car (Glimpses of it in the photos) for her birthday! By far has been the most Khoobsurat moment was seeing her super happy and surprised. I kept my outfit simple for the occasion, wearing black maxi skirt with tank top and denim vest. Completed the outfit with statement sunglasses, arm candy and of course my new obsession Michael Kors watch. My personal favorite part of the outfit is my new awesome colored hair. The Casting Creme Gloss shade adds dimension to my hair and makes it vibrant and fun. The best part and contrary to popular belief - I was able to get professionally colored hair at home in 20 minutes!

White Paradise




Continuing my ritual of sharing more Khoobsurat moments in association with L'Oréal Paris. Recently, Kelly Services hosted an event which had the creme de la of the IT business world coming together for an informative session. I wanted an outfit which was simple, stylish with a modern twist to formal wear. Most people do not associate lace with formal outfits, nevertheless if done right lace can be a wonderful addition to formal wardrobe. I experimented with beige and white combination. I paired white lace top with beige lace skirt. Completed the look with white blazer and beige peep toe kitten heels. I felt the outfit need a bit of sparkle, so added a subtle crystal necklace as only statement piece. Of course, no outfit is complete without awesome hair. The Casting Creme Gloss shade adds dimension to my hair and makes it vibrant and fun. The best part and contrary to popular belief - I was able to get professionally colored hair at home in 20 minutes!

Though the event was quite successful, the highlight of the evening for me were the compliments I received for my hair. A lot of people loved the color and took details down to go try L'Oréal Paris Casting Creme Gloss at home. A lot of them were shocked that my hair is so soft, despite coloring my hair. Great evening spent with my amazing colleagues at work. Got to learn new concepts, meet great minds from the industry and of course enjoyed the delicious food at Leela Palace.

I have been sharing my Khoobsurat Moments, share your Khoobsurat moment and win amazing goodies from L'Oréal Paris. Participate now! (Click here)
