Cocktails on Instagram 

It’s almost the weekend and I thought it would be a good idea to start getting ready for it. To help with that, here are some of the cocktails we’ve consumed over the last few months (No we don’t have a drinking problem :P ). All chronicled on our Instagram of course. Enjoy!

Online shopping in India: Highs and Lows

Online shopping is a lazy girl’s best friend. Actually come to think of it, it is also a working girl’s, a busy girl’s..well I guess every kinda girl’s best friend :P

Like everyone I know shopping online is still a hit and miss situation for me. At times it goes perfect, and I wonder what did everyone do before we could shop online. At other times however, everything that can possibly go wrong with an order, does. Wrong size, broken product, a completely different product from what I ordered, or even something that looks poles apart from how it looked on the website. You name it, I’ve faced it. Such are the perils of online shopping. But what everyone agrees on I think is that the advantages of shopping from a thousand different stores from the convenience of your home is unbeatable. Therefore, online shopping and me are still BFFs, though it doesn’t do much for my credit card.

We thought it would be useful to combine our most frequently used online stores and do a post on it. Each of us have had different experiences with these stores, and it might help you out if you wanted to try one of them for yourself. So here goes!

So this is what I spent my time on…a good book and coffee.
