My online shopping at Medplus beauty.com ...

I have always been a fan of e-commerce websites. i started being on internet almost 10 years ago. That time there was no e-commerce websites available in India except ebay of-course. That too, I never shopped online, of-course I didn't have a bank account then.But honestly their mere absence used to irritate me a lot. 

Thanks to flipkart which brought this culture successfully in India. Later on fashionandyou followed. Now there is no looking back. I am very happy now. *bliss*.

I have purchased lot of books from flipkart (there is another story and passion behind this, which I will cover some other day) and have been very content with the ease and authenticity of their products.

Though I had started going online for my shopping but was always wary of shopping for two things, u guessed it right, cosmetics and clothes. I still am not very comfortable with the idea of shopping for clothes because I belong to that species who likes to try 20 different outfits to arrive at one and try the finalized one at-least 3 times to buy it. Yes, I am that picky :p;)

Anyways, coming back to the post,I  have recently started online shopping for cosmetics a lot. Though I do my due diligence and research, but still for a girl my type, its a huge leap of faith. 

I had this instant craving to get myself a new shower gel so I put on my research glasses and narrowed down on one. Step 2, now was the time to look for reliable website and best discount available. Medplusbeauty.com has over 20000 products and 400 brands.

For me, medplusbeauty.com had the best discount available on the shower gel I was eyeing. I ended up ordering three items from it

1. Organic Surge Tropical Bergamot Moisturizing Shower Gel
2. Maybelline colossal Kajal - needed to replenish my kajal.
3. ECO-ESSENTIALS ABHYANGA AYUR SNAAN CHURN - curiosity bug bit me for this and its ayurvedic name allured me towards it.

Thumbs Up:

1. Availability - Wide range of products to choose from.
2. Many international range products available.
3. Price - Best discounts available, at-least for the items I ordered.
4. Authenticity - Claims 100 percent authentic products.
5. Security - Secure and easy payment gateway.

Thumbs Down:

1. I found the user interface bit tacky. No drop-down menu available on main page and I had to first click on the Product Category and then only it appears.
2. Some brands are still missing, though I  understand it might be because it is still in infant stage.

I am super excited already and cant wait to receive my order. Individual reviews will be coming in once I receive my order. 

Take Care, Love

Hi Readers - Me and My Life

This is my first post on my first blog so it is fair enough that I introduce myself to the readers.

I am an outgoing, intelligent and outspoken person who prefers to keep an opinion and is fearless to speak it out. My motto of life is very simple, "Live it". 

Life is the most beautiful gift that is bestowed upon us by GOD and like we respect all  gifts we should also respect this one by living it to the fullest and not leave a stone unturned.

We have one life, which I often realize is very short so I like to do everything, almost everything, that crosses my mind. Be it dance, karaoke, makeup, reading, washing car (trust me, its fun xoxo), adventure sports, cooking, mis-chiefs blah blah..

My BLOG will reflect me and life as a whole so while reading it you are entitled to form your own opinion as I care the least about it :) :)

I am very spontaneous and dynamic so it happens that my interests also fluctuate a lot. I can proudly say that only constant thing in my life is change. As far as I remember, reading is the only passion that has been with,rather vice versa, I have been with it faithfully, since time immemorial. I like to read anything, just about anything. If it interests me, well and good, else I can always put it down and pick another beauty. However, that rarely happens, somehow I like everything I read, except some horrors ofcourse.

I have a short and sweet family who are the pillar of my life and everything I own. I know this might sound like a cliche( :p) but honestly it took me looooooooong to totally realize and now be proud of this fact.

Though I am working, however I would not discuss this on MY BLOG ever ever. I have a secret ritual that I follow. Ssshh.. the moment I step into that building I become a zombie and when I step out I get back into my skin. This way, I leave office worries and stories at the gate.

I hope you enjoy reading my BLOG !! 

Have a happy reading experience. Take Care :) :)

Shaily :) :)
