There's something about precious jewels that artificial jewelry can never beat. I myself am a big artificial jewelry lover, but the majority of the times, I find solace in the precious jewelry I own.
Today, there is a plethora of choice when it comes to precious jewelry. The options are so many that it becomes hard to decide what to choose and what not to.
Beautiful designing coupled with a good quality of gold/platinum is my personal favorite. Owning a bland design of jewelry which you will probably never feel like wearing is so pointless!
Hence, I am always in the lookout for precious jewelry brands/stores who offer unique designs which are classy and simply elegant and make you wanna always wear them.
Candere is one such amazing brand I happened to come across recently and let me tell you, I have fallen in love with their jewelry collection! Their intricate diamond cuts, beautiful gold designs, and the limitless options have got me glued to their online website.
Gone are the days when people used to fear buying things online. Today, there's an online store for everything in this world! I am an online shopping junkie and would prefer sitting and shopping from the warm comfort of my bed any day over standing in long billing queues at malls.
1. All the jewelry by Candere are Government certificated hence there's no issue of quality of gold/diamond. There's no way I can be cheated.
2.There's a plethora of choice. I have visited many jewelry stores and have always found only limited designs for what I want to buy. But online, there's limitless choice and collection as is the case with Candere.
3. Candere offers lifetime exchange and 30 day return policy hence I don't have to worry if I don't like the design when it arrives at my doorstep.
4. Candere offers insured free shipping on all products and the USP of the product is its bespoke international designs.
5. Available on EMI
Hence, I feel online jewelry shopping is simply cool and more productive with a plethora of choice especially when it comes to a brand like Candere!
Candere has options for everything from necklaces, diamond rings, bangles, mangalsutras, pendants, earrings, chains and nose pins. That's not all, they have jewelry for Men too. Men's jewelry range from bands, rings, bracelets and other precious gemstones.
What I loved the most about Candere was the unique deigning. Every piece of jewelry looks like an intricate carving of art packed with elegance, class and superior quality.
I totally recommend Candere.com to all of you. Go ahead and check it out right now!
If you are on Twitter, you would have heard the term AAPtard. Well, calm down, coz that's not what we'll be discussing here! What we are actually discussing here are awesome APPtards like yours truly!! *winks*
I use a MotoG 2Gen cell phone (which is the best phone I have ever used.. and trust me! I have used many other high priced ones!!) which works like a breeze combined with my Airtel sim.
I am an Airtel user since a long time and I must say that I am quite happy with their service. There has never been a problem like the users of other networks complain about.
When I learnt that Airtel has launched their app, I was elated and very excited to try it out. I may be fashion and humour blogger but when it comes to gadgets I am techie too who loves interesting apps and of course.. a hardcore android lover!
These days you can see that almost EVERY brand out there is coming up with new ideas to engage their customers. Launching their own apps, tops the list! it's a very smart thing to do because people are more engaged with their smartphones these days and apps are what will interest them.
You might have heard the news that's buzzing about the whole internet like hot fire! Myntra.com, a bigshot shopping giant is going App only. This is the first time such a big e-commerce website is taking this step. When I heard this, at first I was a bit disappointed as I love shopping at Myntra and shopping through a mobile app is really not my thing. I like big screens and clearer views when it comes to dating my favourite hobby ~ Shopping! ;) But then, this thought crossed me that if they are going app only, they will for sure come up with some more striking technology and coming from Myntra, I'll surely love it!!
Besides, I have got acquainted to all these apps on my cell phone to an extent where I can't imagine my life without them! They make life so much simpler, especially when I am travelling or just don't have the energy (read: lazy bum) to open up my hottie Dell.
The Airtel app is quite a blessing which brings numerous features in a single app and makes it very user-friendly and engaging to use!
The three features which I found were most engaging and effective are:
1. The 'shake for offer' feature: If you have the Snapdeal.com app, you will know that they have this unique shake feature which shows you new offers and deals when you shake your phone. I LOVE such unique features. The Airtel app has a similar 'shake' feature which gives you exclusive offers on your specific Airtel number when you shake your phone! Pretty cool eh?!!
2. Payments made easy: I am a Prepaid customer and the only thing which has kept me from shifting to postpaid is the tiring billing procedure. I am not found of complicated billing procedures and thanks to the all new Airtel app, this won't be a problem anymore! All one has to do is login inside the app and make the monthly DTH payment within a few minutes!
3. Airtel Surprise Coupons: Whenever you recharge via the Airtel app, they give you surprise coupons. Now tell me!!! How can a bargain queen like me not LOVE this feature!! :D Free coupons/cashback and any other stuff which lets me save a little of my hard earned money makes me jump in joy!!
Online shopping has become the most engaging and exciting thing for me. If I start counting how many online hauls I have made last month.. the list will be as long as my waist length brunette hair.
If you are following this blog from a long time, you will know that I am a scrapbooker for Limeroad.com and LOVE shopping there.
However, it has been a while since I shopped from Lime road. A few days back, I got a chance to shop again and that was when I chose this gorgeous lime bag!
Limeroad keeps having lovely sales and promotions like the 'rush hour', '70% off ' and 'buy one get one free' sale. I received a mail from Limeroad announcing that their 'buy one get one free' sale had been extended. I checked the sale out and was overjoyed to find endless options at astonishing prices! I quickly started choosing.. choosing.. and you know, until I finally picked up this bag and some other items, much to my horror, the sale was GONE. *crie* *sob*
You can imagine my disappointment. I was so upset that I just logged out and didn't return to my cart for a day. Next day when I opened my cart again, my heart started racing as the bag was available on half price which was very close to the previous 'buy one get one free' offer. I didn't waste a single minute and checked out with this bag. After I received the confirmation mail, I was jumping all around the house telling everybody what a GREAT price I got the bag for!The delivery was quick as a breeze. I received the parcel within two days of placing the order. The packaging was the signature lime cover which I love.
The bag turned out to be more than what I had expected. The colour is simply beautiful and chic! I loved the quality too. For the price, it was a steal!
Type: Yellow sketchy handbag
I got it for: 399

I beleive that we don't need a day to respect and honour our mothers. They should be respected, honoured and loved every day... every hour.. every second!!
Mom ~ A person or to put it in more suitable words.. an angel.. a blessing.. a saviour, is the best gift to mankind. She is that being because of which the world was created.
Her love.. her care.. her emotions.. can NEVER be matched or paid back!
My Mom is my world and just the thought of going without her for even a day makes me shudder.
It was dark.. I woke up in the middle of night. The darkness and silence of the night scared me. I found myself alone and started screaing and crying. She woke up from her sleep.. came running to me and hugged me tight. "Why do you cry angel? I am right here!" she said and kissed my cheek. Then she sung me a lullaby and made me sleep peacefully..
That day I knew I was not alone. I always had my Mom by my side.
She was my first teacher.. My first mentor.
She protected me from the world.
She beleived in me like none other.
She loved me like there was no tomorrow.
She loves me and I know she will always no matter what!
Being her youngest girl child, I enjoyed a little extra priviliges from my mother. She always spoilt me with her little treats but she taught me to never cross lines. Even if I did, she would give me a hearing, but always forgive me bythe end of the day.
My Mom taught me to paint, to read and write even before any teacher in my school could do so. I was a tough child with the stubborness and toughness of a rock but Mom knew the perfect words and ways that would melt me and mould me into a better human being everyday.
Today, whatever I am, I owe it to her confidence, her encouragement and her unconditional love. Everytime I find my world turning upside down, I hug my Mom tight and my worries melt away.
Every morning I wake up, I am happy and thank the heavens that I am blessed with such an amazing Mom. When my Mom smiles at something she likes which I have done for her, I promise myself to work on always gluing that smile on her face.
On mother's day I was wondering what to gift her. I checked everything online from bags, kitchen appliances to apparel.. than I suddenly realised that this was not what my Mom wanted. So I went to her and gave her a surprise hug. She was happy and loved the gesture. :)
That was #MyFirstExpertStory with my Mom, what is yours? Do let me know! :) Also check out the all new Godrej Expert hair color. My Mom loves it!
Loads of cheers to Motherhood!

Have you ever wondered which category from the above you belong to? Here are thirteen signs which can help you decipher the same. I have included my captions just above the Gifs. DON'T miss them! ;)

They say 'follow your heart' ~ Well, that's not the case this time!
We have grown up to the whole world around us sending messages to us in one or the other way to follow our hearts and listen to what they have to say. While some pay heed to the same, some don't. Have you ever thought about those situations where following your heart is not really a good idea? Brains.. that's what you have to excel in!
It's the IPL season and cricket is ruling hearts everywhere! If you look up at the image I have included above of Sir Kapil Dev, you can see that his posture and body language itself speaks volumes of what all this is about!
The #EkNayiLeague by Kapil is the most talked about thing right now and it's no surprise that it's already winning hearts all over the globe.
If you have watched the exclusive videos, you will know that playing your heart here will only make you lose. It's an exclusive league where your intellect will win you wonders!
For now, everything is a hush-hush and all we know is that something involving Bollywood celebrities and cricketers is happening. The buzz is that celebrities from Bollywood are going to set the stage for something like never before.
This pops a question in my head. WHAT could this new league be all about?
Here are my hunches>>
*It could be a fantasy league
*It could be a Quiz show
*It could be a women's league (Like IPL for women)
*It could be a reality show where celebrities and cricketers gather for something other than cricket.
It could be a fusion of money and cricket because the mind is involved. Now this sounds simply exciting!
For those who are alien to #EkNayiLeague, it's the Hindi form of the words One New league. So now, all of you know that this IPL is going to get much more exciting with whatever Kapil has planned up!
I watched three very interesting videos by Kapil Dev concerning this and here's what I could decipher:
*In the first video Kapil gives the basic introduction to this whole concept of #EkNayiLeague starting with an explanation of what 'hit wicket means'. According to him, those who followed their heart in this #EkNayiLeague would be as if it was a hit wicket. I kinda liked this unique comparison he gave.
The following videos are a little more elaborative but still keep you guessing and scratching your head thinking what this could really be about.
Whatever it is, I am sure it's going to be a big affair and something very interesting and unique like the IPL itself. My biggest hunch is that it's going to be something where Bollywood celebrities will be involved in the majority. I am totally excited about this and can't wait to know more.
Will keep you posted if I find any developments!
