Reluctant Shopper at Shoppers Stop

When I was growing up... the formative early teens, I used to have this recurrent dream before any big event. I would star in a game show, where the rules were simple. You had one minute and you grabbed what ever you could get your hands on, and who ever had the highest value of goods in their trolley at the end of the minute got to keep what they'd grabbed.

I kid you not about the adrenaline rush that one could experience when this happened. I also kid you not, about that sinking feeling I'd get when I woke up to realize that sadly, it was just a dream. Needless to say, I always won and got to keep everything I had in my trolley!

That's why this contest is on my blog. Despite the title, that I'm sure a few of you would have related to it, I think everyone is a shopper at heart. We all want luxury, except when it costs money. So this virtual shopping spree has a few rules. 1. I have to pick my absolute favorite, so I cannot have too many clothes. 2. I don't have to look at the prices, because Shoppers Stop as a brand guarantees quality and value for money. I didn't know until this contest, that they have online shopping too, which is fantastic!

So here she goes, dressed up for work during the holidays. Whilst most of us are off to celebrate, I know that that is not true for everyone :) That's why I opted to dress up a corporate working lady, who may or may not have plans for the evening. Here's my outfit, day/evening.. in case she decides



I'll begin with the perfume... there's only one that I own, and have used forever now, for work/evening it has to be DKNY Be Delicious Cherry Blossom. Price at Rs 2420 for 50ml.




















And to break it down...



This beautiful dress from Allen Solly is both feminine and strong. The gentle soft colour reminded me of a Japanese kimono dress, and priced at Rs.3499 (with an offer of 25% off if you buy two) it's definitely worth the look!













Matching the shade of the flower print of the dress above, and with a soft satin bow, is this evening shoe (I thought this was work appropriate) from Lemon Pepper. Priced at Rs1499, this shoe has to be the one that one that falls off at midnight at the end of this long work day meets party night!





Sling bags are the in thing, and so is contrasting colours. Working women know that small bags are easy to carry, but it's the bigger ones, sturdy as ever that can be relied upon to get us through the day. That, along with this unique shade of green, that makes the outfit pop is what made this bag from Hidesign stand out from the rest of the herd. An even square price at Rs 4195 and made out of faux leather, definitely a fit in on our celebratory day.





It's winter here in Bangalore but the sun is out in the afternoon in all brightness. For stylish protection, here's a name in the sunglasses industry that needs no introduction, Ray Ban. A definite investment at Rs 7390!

 

This dragonfly bracelet from Misaki Cultured pearls and the Cocoon Pearl Pendant with sterling silver chain ( chain suggested by the tool on Shoppers Stop) completes the outfit. An absolutely breathtaking pair, I was confident this was the last piece of the puzzle. Priced at Rs 6600Rs 6000 , the pair complete our shopping spree.


And I am aware I ran the bill quite high, especially for my reluctant shopper.. but hey, how often do you get to get a pick from the cream of the crop? Actually, let me answer that, just walk or sign into Shoppers Stop!

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?













There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.


I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105


Off Products Available in India: Not Tested on Animals- India

A while ago, I turned vegan. It took me three months, to turn myself out of it, but I can safely say, that that experience changed the person in me. It started off with this documentary  and hit me hard. Possibly, owning a dog made a difference, the fact that I know him and have realized that 'they' deserve better.

Anyhow, I've never looked at a piece of chicken the same way. I couldn't keep myself vegan, so I've done the best that I can do, given my shoddy will power. It's not much, but it is something, and honestly, it's not debatable. No camel, elephant rides. No zoos or circuses, wool, leather, feathers or shells. I'm leaving them alone, materially.

And the most recent change has been with cosmetics and toiletries. I was luckier when I started off a couple of months ago, that I am now. The stock of products that I've had, has run out, and where before I was looking for shampoo/conditioner/body wash, I find myself looking for kajal, mascarra a…

L'Oreal Creme Gloss- Dark Chocolate (323)

I thought I'd try my hand at a product review & the product in question is the new shade 323 (Dark Chocolate) from L'Oreal.

How I bought it: At Health & Glow

$$$: Rs 425

Comments: There were plenty of 'test for allergy' warnings all over the box. Was kind of hard to miss the warning, but I did not heed it as I had used the product (not the same shade) before. Application was easy, and the instructions are very simple and can be followed to the letter. The smell, the texture and all the tools provided were perfect, very honestly, I love using L'Oreal hair colour more because of the ease, as I can do it myself at home. After washing out the dye, the hair was also glossy and bouncy, which made me feel less guilty about colouring it.

What I was not happy with, was the end result: the colour. It was very close to the actual shade of my hair, which I'd always thought was black. The product seemed to make my hair blacker than before, as opposed to the chocolate …
