My love for shopping and my quest of finding online shopping websites to fulfil the purpose flawlessly is nothing new to you guys. So today I will review Limeroad which is one of the most popular online shopping websites in India.
The first thing I noticed about Limeroad apart from their huge collection of products is that you also get a style council which is much like polyvore but created for the personal interest of limeroad shoppers. It gives a fabulous insight on how to ensemble your look with clothing and accessories from limeroad and how to make it work for you. It's like having a personal stylist and the products all listed that you can buy with one click.
For example, if you are not sure how to ensemble a skirt you bought, you can simply check their website for fabulous insights on which top will go perfectly with that skirt. It's like a dream come true for so many people who doesn't have time to research latest fashion yet look updated and chic; thanks to the limeroad style council.
So this is what I got from limeroad jewellery section. It's a stunning statement necklace in green and gold.
It came in a plastic box with bubble wrap and everything. I shared with you guys before that I got some necklaces from a rather popular online shop in Hong Kong but they were unfortunately damaged as the products were not inside a box and it's impossible for courier handler to take specific care of items. So I was impressed by limeroad packaging.
The shipping was within the estimated date and they treat their shoppers with so much love and care that you'll surely feel pampered.
I absolutely love the necklace and it definitely adds edge to the entire look.
The limeroad mobile app is another easier alternative to online shopping through phone. You can find it on Play Store and they also offer free shipping (yay)! I am looking forward to shop from limeroad again soon. 

My rating: 5/5
How do you guys like the necklace?
Hi guys! How are your days going?
It's been raining in Kolkata like crazy...I'm talking knee deep water throughout the city, thunder lightening and constant rain days after days.
You know when the weather is gloomy many would say they'd feel depressed. But I refuse to dress down.


I'm wearing statement necklace from limeroad.com It definitely adds edge to the outfit!
Monsoon doesn't necessarily mean a gloomy mood, for me it's dreamy and I think everyone should wear their mood on their sleeves! (Don't keep us guessing now)
Bright colours look great in the rather dull background. Also jeans and boots doesn't really work for Indian monsoon (hello water log) so flats and shorts are good to go. Also, cotton is a big NO NO for rainy days. You can pick a bright top and ensemble it with accessories and funky flats.
I am someone who is determined to have fun even if it's raining since it always rains on my birthday! Basically after a few birthdays, you realize it's time to embrace the rain and not let it affect your outfit choice more than it should.
However raincoats are suddenly making a comeback in street fashion and it is definitely something worth trying!
If you are looking for some monsoon fashion inspiration I think rompers look great in the gloomy weather and since they are super comfortable it's a win-win, really.

And if all else fails, you can always try the JYP plastic pants tread!
Have a fabulous week ahead and don't let the rain get in the way!
Love,

Healthy, skinny and toned - the motto of millions of women yet many of them won't break a sweat for achieving it. Literally.
We all wish to flaunt our bodies, be it in a cute crop top or in a sari. Although our body shape and many other factors about our physical appearance depends on the genes, however it is absolutely foolish to not work on your fitness and focus on "not looking unhealthy". A healthy body image is crucial for a positive life.

Change doesn't happen overnight and it takes a lot of dedication and hard work. If you're ready to start living a healthier, happier life, then only you can make it happen - starting today!
If you really want to make a change, then do it! 
  • Sweat a little. 
Do something to break a sweat and get the heart rate up every day.  Personally, I like taking a walk and sometimes running. Although I never took it up consciously and started out for the purpose of sports but it acts as a great stress reliever. 
  • Eat healthy.  
"The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison." 
Let's face it, it is not possible to completely cut off junk food. If you make a regime like that in today's busy world- you might even end up not eating at all! And that is not the message here. I feel like as long as you eat a healthy lunch and dinner, you can get away with junk food. Having a balanced diet is far more effective than simply resisting food (read dieting). However every little change in lifestyle affects us. Make positive changes in your diet plan. You can try a Honey Diet for noticable results. http://www.daburhoney.com/

  • If you anyhow resort to dieting, it is better to know about the harmful effects of dieting and then making a choice. Personally, I don't feel like dieting can be a solution. An unhealthy choice can never really lead to a healthy life.
Set attainable goals and keep track of your progress. Incorporate the little changes into your daily routine and try to find at least five minutes to work out.
Committing to a healthier lifestyle is just that — a commitment, and it's a big one that will take a lot of work. But it will definitely be worth it!
Remember, when you look good, you feel good. And we all know that saying "First they will ask you- Why? Then they will ask you- How?"
Love yourself first and be the way you wish to be. I have friends who are quite insecure about their bodies but instead of taking up a fitness regime to try and change the situation, they give up food and hope nobody catches them trying to lose weight. Truth is, life can be quite difficult and people often tease each other beyond boundaries. But one very astonishing thing about body shaming is not only to spread needless hate but also make mockery of the ones who are trying to make a change just for themselves-just for a healthier life. And I must say, petite people face just as much if not more body shaming. I often wondered why skinny-shaming is okay but fat shaming is not? I believe both should NOT be okay. 
We all have the right to be the way we are and make changes to be the way be wish to be. Don't be afraid of the society.
"Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live in."

Slow internet browsing can be very frustrating. Apart from those numerous times when we must check that latest update or post a tweet- send a very important message instantly but thanks to your browser YOU CAN'T DO THAT! AND THAT IS SIMPLY HORRIFYING. I am not really making a big deal out of this, recently I faced a similar problem and realized how hurt some people can be if you don't instantly respond to them when they are being vulnerable. With our excitement and little sighs converted to text language- it's even worse. Imagine hanging up a phone and calling few minutes back saying "Hey my reception was bad and I totally acknowledge everything that you just said." 
Now imagine doing that multiple times a day. Really frustrating isn't it?
People are sensitive and this little things aren't little anymore.
Another horrifying instance is while checking out semester results and as it never declares on time so you could be crossing the road and find out your semester results are out.
And the big question...did you make it? Well, thanks to the browser it take forever to load and that is like a whole new level of frustration.

However the most annoying thing is when on youtube even the ads buffer!!! REALLY!!


In India, cricket is more than a game. It's in our blood and people from every corner of the country feel passionate about it. Cricket is what unites this very diverse country in a beautiful way. You will find people having heated discussions, expressing emotions such as Craze, courage, fear all surrounding it. Cricket is a force like no other in our country. It tempts us to skip work, postpone family get-togethers, bunk tuition, and sometimes even cancel a date. Although thanks to IPL, we get to plan dates and feel the craze of cricket together.


Even though an important match is the same as an undeclared holiday in the country- our daily lives, meetings and even the traffic that adds additional commuting time to our schedule makes it impossible to watch a match without interruption. And with the live feed of the match on YouTube, our slow browser kicks in just in time! Was that a six or out?

The streaming kills all the fun out of the match and we get upset at your perfectly good phone for this problem.

So a few months back, I installed UC BROWSER on my phone and the speed of browsing is significantly better!

It didn't take as much time to load pages and the youtube browsing is really good as well! You can watch matches without buffering via UC CRICKET
So say no to buffering!
The browser has incognito mode, night mode and you can create numerous shortcuts to make it more personalised.
You can find out more about the browser here : http://www.ucweb.com/

Buying a new phone often gets even the best of us into feeling indecisive and I think everyone has their own priorities in choosing the specifications and what best suits their necessities in a phone.


I was introduced to the Asus Zenfone2 and I really loved it's features and everything it has to offer. More and more people are using Zenfone nowadays and it's quite hard to go unnoticed because of the bright colours that the phone comes in and also their unique design. The Zenfone 2 has Android 5.0 Lollipop pre-installed in it, which is the latest version of Android. They also have two configurations to choose from: a 2GB of RAM version with a quad-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z3560 processor, and a 4GB of RAM version with a quad-core 2.3GHz processor (Intel Atom Z3580) which is also the World's first 4GB RAM smartphone so multitasking is smooth on the Zenfone 2.
As a blogger, I feel like camera quality on the phone is very important since it's not possible to actually carry a dslr all day in case you find something you wish to post on your blog. I think the same holds true to any avid social media user as well. The Zenfone 2 comes with a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera! Wide-angled selfies, low light performance, manual settings on the camera are some of the best features we look for in today's smartphones and the Zenfone 2 flaunts all of the above.The selfie camera also comes with awesome features such as beautification. I also really like that the phone is light and slim. I mean how many times has this ever happened to you guys while texting?




But when the phone is slim it fits your hands better and light weight ensures that your phone won't injure you HAHA (insert nokia primitive phone jokes)
Anyway, my favourite feature would be the camera on Zenfone2 which is absolutely breathtaking and performs well on low-light conditions too.
You can see for yourself some of the most amazing shots taken by Instagrammers using the Zenfone 2 http://asusindiapromo.com/Zenfone2NightWalkers/
I hope you guys find this review helpful if you are looking to buy a new phone.
