Couponzguru.com - Save Money On Every Purchase

Image
Shopping is therapeutic and these days it can be done at the click of a button. However, as a smart shopper and homemaker, I believe in grabbing discounts. Why pay full price when you can get a discount, right? And to get a deal, I surf the internet and subscribe to offer emails. Needless to say, it’s very time-consuming. But, recently I’ve found a better way to grab a deal than to surf net or scan emails - a website that offers great discounts on all the top brands in India.CouponzGuru.com - a website that has coupons for every kind of purchase. From electronics to home decor, from clothes to pizza, from booking a cab to grocery shopping - you name it and this site has a coupon for you.
The best feature of Couponzguru is 'dedicated pages' for top websites in India. If you love shopping on a particular website, just go to the dedicated page and all the offers are listed there. Like my cousin, who loves shopping on Amazon can find all amazon coupons on one page. There are offer…

Scotch - An Ideal Gift for Men

Image
I love throwing parties and hosting friends. However, I dread going to one. The reason behind this - I am bad at picking gifts. It’s a tedious job. Yes, picking a gift is more taxing than throwing a party. And, if you are looking for gifts for men, the difficulty level just notches up. Don’t you all agree? Watches, ties, wallets, shaving kits, perfumes - these are the only options available. In case you are ready to shell out more money, you can add ‘electronics’ to this list. But wait, before you lose any hope of making an impact on the men in your lives, I have found a perfect gift - Scotch. It is sophisticated, classy and timeless. In simple words - it’s luxury packed in a bottle.
Few reasons I vote for Scotch as a gift -
It’s elegant and if someone likes to drink, he would be pleased to add Scotch to his collection. It gets better with time. So, you need not worry about the expiration date of this gift. It’s timeless! It is an ideal gift for all occasions - Birthday, Anniversary, Pro…

Celebrate Your Good Days, Plan for Your Bad Ones

Image
Like happiness, problems are a part of life. I believe - how we behave in our bad days define our good ones. It shapes both our character and destiny. I met with a terrible accident after 12th standard board examination. Rest side of my body was paralysed and my left side was bruised. Needless to say, it was the most difficult time for me. More than the physical pain, the trauma of isolation took a toll on me. To add to my misery, I failed to apply to the Colleges for admission. I filled only one form. My family was so worried about my health that no one paid heed to the last dates of form submission. I think, for parents everything takes a backseat when it comes to their child’s well-being. And while the medical bills mounted­ as two working parents who had squirrelled away savings­ money was the least of their concern.
I was a commerce student and the only college I applied had a very high cut-off list. Though I was in the range, but 5% was deducted from my score as I didn’t have mat…

The Zig-Zicas of Married Life

Image
Do you know the best thing about a wedding? Love! No, gifts! But in our case, we didn’t get much. Neither a big check nor fancy teak furniture. And, forget about a car. All we got was wishes and ‘each-other’ to fill the empty house. But, we made sure that our grihasthi ki gaddi drove smoothly, without any hiccups. Sure, the road was bumpy - we took a few breaks, reached some milestones, we asked for direction but we survived throughout. Let’s have a sneak-peek at our post-wedding album - 

FANTASTICO Moment - One day I was struggling with one very difficult question - what to wear for a mall outing? I was rummaging through my wardrobe to find a perfect top. My husband was losing his patience. He gave me an ultimatum. We left for the mall, but my search ended with one top on display in my favorite store.  He didn’t let me buy the top. I was silent rest of the evening. When we were heading out of the mall, he told me to wait and came back with that top. I was elated. It was the most fanta…

3-Day Trip to Melbourne

Image
When someone says, ‘You’ll go places,’ you smile with a polite thank you. There are some lucky days when this phrase comes true, literally. Last year I won ‘Reasons for falling in love with Melbourne’ contest on Indiblogger, sponsored by Tourism Victoria. It was a surreal feeling. I was happy and my husband was overjoyed. After months of preparations, coordination, visa filing, bookings and planning, we landed in Melbourne on 28th September last year.

After we landed, we took the bus to our hotel - Ibis Styles Kingsgate and deposited our luggage there. Then we went to explore the city. Our first destination was Melbourne Cricket Ground. The beauty and grandeur of MCG can’t be expressed in words. It’s a mecca for cricket lovers! We took the MCG tour and went ahead to Fitzroy Garden. It’s at a walking distance from MCG and is a perfect place to relax. After spending some time there, we took the Hop on, Hop Off bus. It was nearly noon and we were jet lagged. We flew from New York to New D…

Give your home a facelift with incredible ceiling designs

Image
This is my 8th house in close to 7 years of marriage. We are a nomadic couple. Our moving has uprooted us to an extent. However, it has not suppressed the ‘homemaker’ genes in me. Dream of having a permanent abode has not dulled by the passion of travelling. To feed this zest, I have created secret boards on Pinterest where I collect - room decor ideas, vintage artefacts, wallpapers and DIY projects. In my mind, I have an image of my perfect home. I plan to build it brick by brick and customize it according to my taste. I collect souvenirs wherever I go in the hope of placing those memories on every nook and corner of my home.
Yesterday, I was chatting with my friend who has recently moved to her new apartment on the outskirts of Chandigarh. She is very artistic and we indulged ourselves by sharing our home decor ideas. We discussed each aspect of home decor at length. She has spent nearly three months in remoulding her apartment before moving in. The most interesting feature she has …
