Pretty Clothing Haul ft.!

"Shopping" is one thing that never fails to make me happy, particularly clothes. Online shopping has become an essential routine of my life and I shop when I am bored, I shop when I am happy and I even shop when I am bankrupt and give "Cash On Delivery" payment option so that my mom pays for it(*evil laugh*). In my odyssey of online shopping, I must say that after continuous scrolling in website, I would get tired of it because there would be the same old stuff staring at me(Dude! I just skipped you and I don't want to see you again!!) But, there is this website, where I can only be amazed of every product and scrolled till the end so as to not to miss the awesome stuff! Read on to know more about my shopping experience and my pretty new clothes <3

My Shopping Experience with - Website Review

“Life isn’t perfect. But your outfit can be!” ;)
We love clothes and we love ‘em more when we get them on sale :P So girlies, here I am to review a cool website that I came across - It is a one stop shop for ethnic and western wear, accessories, designer wear, fabrics and the best part is it has an amazing collection of clothes even for men and kids. Let’s dig into the site deeper and I’d share my shopping experience too.

My shopping experience with Aplava!

What makes you stand out from a crowd? Think Different!

That's what Aplava did to make its own image out of a bunch of boring online websites selling beauty products. Wouldn't it be awesome if a website can predict your skin score and suggest the range of suitable products for your skin? Like, no need to hear the half-witted blabbering of a so-called 'beauty representative' in a store. Wouldn't be awesome if you are always showered with sales and coupons every time you shop? And not to miss, the quick and safe delivery. So gals, let's take a step inside the tomorrowland and witness the awesomeness.

Show off your clavicle with off shoulder dresses

 Show off your clavicle with off shoulder dresses

If exposed midriffs and attracting attention to cleavage is not your thing then go for an off shoulder dress. Sexy and subtle, off shoulder dresses are very versatile and look good on all body types. Western dresses are chic and stylish option to make you look trendy and fashionable. Besides, these latest dresses can be styled for a number of occasions. Hence instead of opting for a regular round neck style or cold shoulder dress, go for an off shoulder dress for an elegant look. 

Pick latest dresses in light colours such as pink or pastel. Monochrome colours are also great for an elegant look. Western dresses with slight detailing is a good option to embrace the off shoulder trend. But keep these details to a minimum for a sharp look. Too many details and embellishments will take away the beauty of your dress.

Shopping is easy and makes me feel so good. I used to like visiting the shopping malls for my clothes shopping because I can actually try on clothes, feel the fabric and check the fitting. I seldom exchange my clothes and I totally think the whole process is a stress buster and fun. But now things have been changed, in many ways. Now I cannot really invest my time in visiting a mall as I find it really disappointing in the end. I do not like the fact that there is a huge crowd in every place that I used to shop earlier. I need to waste time at the trial room, at the cash counter and during the SALE season just the whole process is too irritating. Thankfully, most of the online websites have almost the same sort of sale DURING the sale season. But what if you want to shop for less price in the off sale season? Well, I have an answer now. It is the LIMEROAD.
Limeroad can be downloaded on your mobile for quick shopping experience in your palm. I have shopped from them earlier and I always wanted to shop from them again whenever I get a chance to. In this haul, I would like to show you what I got.
I have got three very unique pieces. Very different from one and another.
Before getting into my haul, I would like to tell you my experience with the website

Where to buy Makeup,Skincare and Hair Care Products in Mumbai at Discounted Prices?

Being in one of the most popular cities of India and known to be the stylish city, I really wanted to explore the places for shopping in Mumbai. There are certain places like Bandra,Colaba etc which are known for the flea market, I feel the whole city has so many not so popular markets for people who are looking for some affordable clothing/jewellery/footwear etc. By now I understood that shopping for these is a bit easy but being a makeup lover, finding some makeup at one place is really a tough job. Either I will have to go to a mall for Shopperstop,Lifestyle or to a Health n Glow store. Coming to the point, all these stores are there here in Hyderabad as well but there is one place which I had my eyes on. It is the Beauty Palace. I have been told that this store stocks up so many brands and I was wanting to buy some Kryolan stuff. So that's how I visited this place.
Beauty Palace is a place that sells almost all the leading brands' products at a discounted price. I could find makeup,skincare,haircare also bath and body stuff.
So, before going to the Beauty Palace, I would like to let you know my experience and also what to expect from the Beauty Palace.
A bit more about Beauty Palace:
My Take:
My first reason to visit the store was to check out the store and also I saw the store pictures online through which I could know that the much coveted "Kryolan" is available. I was desperate to try out the kryolan base makeup and the eye pencils. Also, I heard that the store sells all the products at a discounted price.So I felt these reasons are more than enough for me to visit the store.
At first sight, I could see the Kryolan Sign and I was excited to enter the store.
Once I entered the store, to my disappointment the SA told me that they are not stocking the kryolan stuff anymore because the they have opened the Kryolan FlagShip Store in Bandra.
But that's not all. Okay, I am trying to sound positive :)
Because there I could find Essence :D the drug store brand that is known for affordable cuteness caught my eye. I have already tried their long lasting lipstick on which I have mixed opinions,I was wanting to confirm my review on this brand so I had to try out their stuff. So, I picked some gel eyeliner pencils,matte mousse foundation,two nail paints and a metal eyeshadow. I was wanting to own their mono eyeshadows,mascaras and blushes too. But I felt that these would join me when I get to visit their store next time.
Yes! I was super duper happy seeing this brand there. Because, Jabong sells these for a higher price and I was wanting to buy from their own online store but the high shipping price(7.99 pounds) and custom fee shew me away.
So, yes I got to try their lip glosses,highlighters,foundation and had a nice look at their eyeshadow palettes. Their bronzer/blush palettes are just so great! I have picked their primer. I really wanted to get the highlighter too but I was skeptic as I have never really used any highlighter before. May be, I will pick it in my next visit.
In place of Kryolan they have another professional makeup brand which is called..err..I forgot the name. But I checked their base makeup and I  must say that there were only 6 shades of foundation were available and I fell into a shade which is a blend of two shades. They didn't have refills and the container costs something around 1200 INR and spending on two of them for some brand which I am not aware of made me stepback.
Apart from these brands, almost all the known brands like Lakme,Revlon,Colorbar,L'Oreal,Faces and many more were there.
The whole makeup collection is on the ground floor left side. When you enter, you get to see all the electronic tools like straighteners,curlers,hair driers and they have perfumes too. They have all the bath and body,skincare stuff on the ground floor itself but on the left side. On the first floor they have everything literally everything related to Hair Care and almost all the Salon/Professional brands were available there. Frankly, I haven't prepared for this so I didn't check it much. But I  may visit the store again and hairspray,hair spa cream and any funky hair color from Schwarzkopf are in my list.
Overall, the store has something for everyone and I really liked the store for their collection of products and the range of discounts.
How To Reach:
The store has so many branches and I have visited the Oshiwara Store located in Andheri East. 
The easiest way is to go by Metro. If you can manage to reach Ghatkopar through local trains, you can board the metro from Ghatkopar and get down at DN Nagar. From there you can take an auto and it's hardly 2mins from the DN Nagar Metro Station.
