All In The Candy

Instead of spending hours trying to come up with the perfect gift for a special occasion or to brighten someone’s day, consider a gift basket. Most people enjoy getting candy, and you can use almost any kind of candy in a basket for any holiday, birthday, or even a retirement celebration. You can find candy gift baskets for all ages and genders, but make sure the person you’re getting the basket for isn’t allergic to things like nuts or other items that might be in the candies that are used.

A benefit of a candy basket is that you can make it as customized as you want depending on the occasion and who the gift is for, such as a child or someone who is older who might enjoy some of the elegant candies instead of the fun ones available. If you know someone who is in college or someone who is away from home for any reason, you can make or order a care basket with all types of candy that they enjoy. A box would be better for this gift instead of a basket so that it’s easier to ship to the recipient. You can put colored paper on top of the items as well as around the items to keep them secure. Make a basket of candies from a specific decade. Another option is to make baskets using candies that are all one color. If you want some of the items to stand up, then attach them to craft sticks using hot glue. For someone who is older, you could make a basket of decadent chocolates or smaller chocolates and candies that are easier to eat than some of the harder ones. Combine a few flowers with the basket for a woman or a few cigars for a man when you make a candy basket or once you get one that you order online.

Shopping to my heart’s content with WishAlley

Experience of online shopping especially when it comes to buying clothes or dress material may not always be that satisfactory, because one wants to touch the material, or try that perfect fit, but given the current scenario, when we are always rushing for something or the other, time becomes a big challenge and hence we resort to online shopping. After a lot of searches and surfing on the net, I have come to a conclusion that online shopping isn’t a bad choice after all. There are some sites that offer genuine products and also define the quality of material to 100% accuracy. You may not be able to touch and feel, but the description tells you enough about the cloth that it enables you to take your decisions instantly.

One such site is www.wishalley.com. I am very choosy when it comes to purchasing dress material and getting it stitched as per ones choice, but sometimes I really feel the need to buy a nice material and get it done as per my perfect fit and choice of style rather than settling for the readymade clothes. Especially when it comes to getting a suit or kurta, I prefer getting it tailored as per my specific needs. While recently surfing through the net, I came across this wonderful site WishAlley. I was amazed by the collection that they have to offer. There is just so much to choose from. So many dress materials, latest trendy clothes and enough options available to find your perfect choice of fashion and get it stitched also as per your needs. Whether Indian or Western, whatever you are looking for, your search will end here.

I was glued to the site and after looking through the entire collection and being confused, I picked up one dress material for my kurta. Though I loved so many of the designs, I wanted to be sure about the product quality and deliverables. I opted for one kurta material for myself and started waiting eagerly for my delivery. To my surprise the delivery was quick and very smooth, I received my packet in just about two days. The packaging was neat and utmost care was taken to not letting the dress material getting rolled up or wrinkly.

I loved the dress material, as it was exactly what was mentioned, I chose a crepe kurta and also to my surprise there was enough material given for even a healthy person like me to get it stitched. The length and width of the material was just perfect.

In a weeks time, I got my kurta stitched and couldn’t control my excitement to wear it the same evening. I was just looking for a reason to wear it and then to my relief, a friend threw in a small party and I got my chance to flaunt my newly purchased and stitched kurta.

Not just me, but even my friends loved it and they could not believe that I purchased such a good material online. So after telling them about Wish Alley, I came back extremely happy and satisfied with my purchase and now I can say that I can easily trust the site and hence more shopping is in the pipeline. So what are you waiting for, log on today to www.wishalley.com and do check it out.

 

 

 

Wear T shirts with a style

T-shirts have been every girl’s wardrobe staple at some point of time. However, there is no need to always wear them the same, old way. Tee shirts, even the most basic ones can look extremely smart if worn in different ways and teamed up with the right accessories and right pieces of clothing. With a lot of options to take your pick from, wouldn’t it be really nice if you had some kind of a T-shirt styling cheat sheet? Read on below to find some interesting ideas to wear your T-shirts stylishly.

With summer approaching soon, it is high time restock on some variously coloured and patterned tee shirts and go online shopping.

Team up your tee with a Summer dress

If you have a summer dress that has a rather plunging neckline appropriate only for parties, you can put a Tee shirt to use. Wear a tee shirt beneath to act as an inner beneath the dress. The tee would not only cover up but also add a stylish streak to your regular summer dress.

Trousers with tee shirts

We usually tend to wear Tee shirts with jeans but many tees look flattering even with semi-formal trousers. You can tuck the tee in the trousers and add a belt to look really smart especially, with the high waist ones.Comfortable, platform heels look the best for office wear.

Add a scarf

Adding a scarf is the simplest way to revamp any plain tee shirt that is lying idle in your closet. A scarf instantly adds some colour and definition.

Wear beneath blazers

You can make a single Black blazer look different each time you pair it up with a different coloured or patterned tee shirt. Adding accessories like scarves, chunky neck pieces etc is another option. If you are planning to wear this combo for office, make sure you avoid anything with Letters or messages that have pun-intended.

Skirts with Tee shirts

Pair up tee shirts with mini or mid length skirts. Who said tee shirts are for tomboys? Add a pretty neck piece or a scarf with smart heels and you would look very cute and feminine. You may or may not add a pair of stockings with this beautiful combo. Sport the look with smart heels or stilettos.

Tee shirts with Palazzo

Nothing beats the cool quotient of pairing up a graphic tee with a flared Palazzo.Do not forget to add a wide belt or a belt bag for that additional style factor.

Tee with Shorts

A funky and colourful tee shirt looks uber cool when paired up with a pair of shorts. Blue denim shorts or White, they never fail to make an impact. Tuck in your tee shirt snugly into the shorts and do not forget the sporty looking shoes and cute socks.

So, with these ideas, we are pretty sure that you shall be able to bring in a fresh spin to the most basic wardrobe item, ever!

Value Shopping with Shop Clues!

How many times do we see those fashionable clothes, those trendy watches, and fashion jewellery across the ads running on social media, we click the links and often shut them back because when we look at the prices, our dreams to own those things start shattering. Most of things are so highly priced, that though we want to make a style statement, but investing huge amounts for a trendy watch or a funky necklace doesn’t seem too wise.

But I as a fashion blogger truly believe that accessories like these help making a fashion statement and one should collect slightly different and unique items. Team one chunky necklace with a plain shirt or top and you are done. One stylish watch, and people turn their heads to look at you. Choosing these things is often assumed very costly but there are some brands that help you own statement watches and jewellery for women in a decent budget.

To our rescue, shopclues.com offers amazing stuff at the best possible prices. Just randomly surfing through the site, I stumbled upon their collection of watches for women and women’s jewellery and trust me its mind blowing.

Value Shopping is surely an upcoming trend which all fashion savvy people should be aware of. It allows you to follow the latest fashion trends, own trendy watches and jewellery without burning a hole in your pocket. College going students or young working women often go through the chaos of looking good everyday, but when it comes to buying new things, it takes a backseat, but like I mentioned brands like shopclues.com now offer such great range of products that you can easily choose from so many options and fit your regular shopping in your routine budget.

Also who minds when fashionable and trendy things don’t cost much, at least I love shopping this way, where I am able to choose many things and may be in comparison pay price of just one big branded item. I personally love changing watches and jewellery according to the clothes I am wearing on a daily basis. The different coloured straps and dials make me swoon over watches and wearing jewellery as per occasion and dresses is a basic necessity for me. When I shopped for myself from shopclues and picked up some amazing stuff, I was able to add a lot of value to my regular look and also make my colleagues and friends a bit jealous. Everyday they would look at me wearing a different watch or a different earring and neckpiece and ask me how can I buy so many things. Then I thought I shouldn’t keep this as a secret anymore and hence I am writing this blog post to make both my friends and readers aware of my value shopping spree.

 

So I am sure now you wont refrain yourself from looking trendy and fashionable on a daily basis and make most of this value shopping from shopclues.

Choosing right products for our little ones always comes across as a challenging task. Whether you are buying things for your own children or you wanna gift it to someone, there is a constant tussle on what kind of product to buy, should we opt for clothes, or do we gift some educational product, do we buy some home decor stuff exclusively for kids or settle for some toys. Most of the times taking this decision means checking out number of shops, or number of websites in case of online shopping, and then comparing and going crazy on what exactly to buy.

I was recently in a dilemma when I had to gift something to a 5 year old kiddo for his birthday and this site came as a rescue for me. I actually had in mind to give him something useful, which is both engaging and interactive. I was inclined to give story books and then while searching for books i stumbled upon this amazing thing called as a STORY BOX. The story box is a great combination of a story book along with perfectly curated activities for your little one to enjoy and understand the nuances of the story and almost live the story in real.
 
I chose two story boxes, MAGICIAN and RED RIDING HOOD. First things first, the packaging was very neat and carefully done. Before gifting it, I wanted to personally check the contents and everything and hence I opened the boxes to take a look. Each item was separately packed and the box also comes with a small bag in order to put all your contents in one place post opening the box. I would also like to highlight, that I found the boxes very reasonable. Priced at just Rs 499 for each story box, and the number of contents it has, its totally worth it.

Each box is built around our 4R approach : Read , Reflect , Retell, Reinvent
Designed to stimulate Creativity, Curiosity and Communication skills
Like the classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood is brought to  life with the Little Red Riding Hood box! Read the Little Red Riding Hood Story with your little one , let them retell the story with DIY stick puppets , strengthen their fine motor skills as they enjoy the activity sheets , and let them reinvent their own version as they dress up in a Little Red Riding Hood cape!
Use this as an opportunity to reflect , together with your child , on the important topic of strangers and safety.

And the people behind this magnificent product are doing a fab job too. 

Smile multiplier creates children gifts that support a cause , so that you multiply happiness every time you shop for your child. . The cape in the box is made by the benificieries of the Animedh Charitable charitable trust , where less privileged women are given vocational training , to help them transform their lives.

Isn’t it a fantastic thing, I mean while you spread joys to your near and dear ones, it also reaches someone far away and make his/her life a little more meaningful.

I am totally hooked to this site and I know that whenever I have to buy something for kids, this is my go to place not just because of the products but also because I believe in the cause they are supporting.

My Rakhi Made Special by Dottedi

So I belong to the category of people who are single child of their parents, no I have no regrets as such, I love being alone, but certain occasions like Rakhi and all make you feel a little low. You want to have a brother to gift you some amazing stuff and shower his love. But its ok, I rather believe in self love, so whether its Valentines Day or Rakhi, I gift myself and make myself feel special indeed.

This year around, as I was looking at gifting options, I landed up on this awesome site called Dottedi and I was hooked. They have such an amazing collection of gifting options that it left me confused for a long time. They have gifts as per gender, relationships and also for special occasions. After a long stare and surfing through the pages, I settled for two things. I ordered myself a Mystery Box, which has a combination of gifts and goodies. There are consumables and also some beautiful gifts. In my mystery box I got Caramel Popcorns, a Beautiful Mason Jar, a Set of Shot Glasses, a Scented Candle, and oh how much I am in love with this box. I was amazed at the packaging, the box itself looked so gorgeous. The goodies inside were beautifully packed and it truly made me love myself more and feel very very special.

The next thing that I picked was a Spa Bucket. Who doesn’t love a spa, and when given a chance to get yourself a foot spa, I am always a sucker for it. In fact I love collecting spa products and sometimes just dip my feet in a bucket and relax myself. This beautiful bucket consisted of foot scrub, foot softener, a foot soak and a body scrub. The bucket itself looked so beautiful and this indulgence felt totally worth it.

I am in love with the products and their quality and in both the cases I was left overwhelmed. I am totally hooked to Dottedi and just waiting for another occasion to log in and make myself happy. What are you waiting for, log on and check out for yourself.

Make your Rakhi special with Surprise Someone.In

Rakhi is just around the corner and is that time of the year when we want to special things for our brothers and these days’ even brothers look at different things to give back to their sisters.

And this year, I am geared up to make my brothers feel really special with amazing gifts collection from Surprise Someone. They have come up with some really great stuff that makes up for perfect rakhi gift and helps my entire process of gifting much more interesting and innovative.

I normally give chocolates to my brothers in place of Indian sweets and there is a big reason behind it, nah not really big reason, but a genuine one, that I professionally make chocolates and bakery items at home and love giving them something that I have prepared instead of the ready made sweets.

IMG_4043

As I was surfing through the surprise someone site, I came across some amazing boxes that can beautifully behold my chocolates and also I can personalize them using photographs and messages.

Now just look at this first box that I chose and I tried capturing the exact way I would give it to my brother by putting some chocolates and also a rakhi in it.

IMG_4665

I used all the 4 compartments for filling them up with chocolates of different flavors. The thing that I loved about this box was its multi utility. Once I give the box filled with chocolates, it can later be used for keeping other knick-knacks and come in handy. I mean my brother can later use it in his office for keeping small stationery items or give to his wife at home for keeping jewellery or other stuff. Also the looks of the box are so premium that one would love to keep things in it and flaunt it.

And this second box is so rich and classy in looks that it adds so much value to the chocolates all-together, just by putting my chocolates in this box, they look more appealing and tempting.

IMG_4678

IMG_4680

This box also had a greeting on which one could write a personalised message, but because I was currently using the box only for featuring it to you all, I didn’t want it to become dirty and ended up using that greeting paper as a base to my chocolates. You can use it the way you want. This box also has a photo frame in built and I guess that would allow it to become much more personalised. Just imagine, how sweet it would look if the top of the box has a picture of you and your brother, won’t it look much more personal and emotional?

Here is another option, which I personally loved the most and this can make an ideal gift for the brothers to choose for their sisters. This cute looking hut which has two drawers to keep that nail paints, or jewellery or any other small articles you may think of and this too can be personalized with a photograph put in the photo frame built in the hut itself. This surely can become a piece on the dressing table and get your friends jealous.

And the biggest surprise from surprise someone is their reasonable pricing, I mean the boxes are so affordable and will easily help make your gift look much more expensive in its perceived value. Here are some more pics for you to get a glimpse of the collection.

Do check them out and make your rakhi even more special and get in touch with me if you would like to place orders for chocolates and bakery items and do check out more on our Facebook Page and Instagram
