Finding The Dress With JVSDress & IDoDressAU

Every woman loves wearing dresses. It is such a refreshing change to wear a dress when you usually are stuck wearing basic jeans and  tees. I too am one of those people who is crazy about beautiful dresses, so whenever I find an opportunity, I go looking for one on the internet. 

I recently found a wonderful website name JVsDress.com, it has an immense collection of beautiful dresses for every occasion, be it weddings,  prom, bridesmaid, homecoming or cocktail parties. 
the vast collection is so pretty that you can keep browsing and keep growing your wishlist! I too picked a few but then I got out of budget so had to settle for two. Here are the two dresses that I loved the most. First is the Brilliant Organza Sequins Red Side Slit Mermaid Classy Prom Dress. 

It’s a beautiful dress with a huge leg slit and an open scrappy back. It’s a gorgeous red dress and would set one apart when worn on an occasion like prom. 

The other dress is Delicate Floor-Length Mermaid Gold Sequin Prom Dress. It's a sleek golden gown that looks like a princess outfit. I love the huge backless whole it has. When worn with some back tattoo and matching heels with side slit braid, this dress would make you look no less than a hollywood star. 

While I was busy drooling over dresses from JVSDress, I came to know of another site, IDoDressAU. Meant for Australian customers, this site has an affordable and pretty huge collection of dresses from all categories like Formal Dresses, Evening Dresses, Bridesmaid Dresses and even Mother of The Bride Dresses ! Giving an option of customising size and colour, It becomes even more accessible to everyone. I personally liked Amazing Sweetheart A Line Evening Formal Gown and the Scoop Elegant Knee Length Ladies Evening Dress since it's Elegance and grace makes you stand apart. When you're set to head over to an even and wear something nice, this is the kind of dress you look for. 

Anyways, these were the dresses that I liked and loved, tell me what you like in the comments below.

To Our Songs

I used to be a girl who loved music, now I don't listen anything at all. 
Used to love singing along to songs you always sent me, 
now when I have my own 'our songs', I still haven't forgotten
what used to be ours. 
All those lyrics that you used to write to me,
all those tunes that we would listen when together,
they're all hazy and feel like a dream. 
A beautiful dream that I wish hadn't happened. 
It left my heart in pieces back then, 
It still breaks my heart right now.
I've grown stronger though.
I can dodge all your thoughts behind.
I can push all the memories aside.
I can walk past all those songs.
And just like that, you're forgotten.
for the time being and forever.

Shopping Joys at LimeRoad.com

If I ever have to pick one thing that I'd love to do for the rest of my life, I'd pick shopping without a second thought. So each time I come across a place where I can find something new and something cool, I go ahead and shop away my joys. One such wonderful place is LimeRoad.com where I shopped recently and had a completely new shopping experience. 

LimeRoad.com is such an interactive and fun shopping portal, I didn't know such websites could exist and be loved in India. It has unique boards where you can create collages of looks and things you like at the website and share with everyone else. You can like, share and create similar boards. It's like a pictorial view of your imagination!

I happened to land upon the website through a recommendation and I'm happy that I did. While browsing, I realized how different the collection up on LimeRoad is. It's so very chic, ethnic and classy! From items related to home decor to pretty flowy skirts and maxi dresses, it has all that a woman wants and that too in such a varied price range, without quality compromise. 

Like any other shopaholic, I couldn't control my urge to shop so I went ahead to buy a beautiful girly handbag for casual day outs. What I loved the most about it that when I made a purchase through the LimeRoad Mobile App, the experience was such a breeze that I was delighted to the core! You don't even realize that one minute you're picking items and the next you're at the checkout page. The app is designed to be swift and hassle free so you can bid goodbye to bulky webpages that take forever to load and are error prone. 

Once the order was placed, it took only 5 days to arrive which is pretty quick considering the weather in the nation lately. The bag that I ordered was nicely packed in a Lime green bag, carefully wrapped and sealed so it would protect the 'newness' of my bag. :P Yes, people like me care about things like that! Overall, it was such a delightful experience that I would love to shop again and again from LimeRoad.com. And you bet I will cuz not one day has gone by since downloading the app that I didn't check what was up on it! The offers that you get.. Boy they're amazing! 

They also stock some really pretty dresses. So the next time you're shopping for dresses online, you know where to land :)

Take a visual look of my experience through these pictures. 

I can't wait to show off my pretty bag the next time I step out.

Have you shopped from LimeRoad before? Share your experience with me.

#MomTales : Charlie Banana Hybrid Cloth Diapers Review

It's been just three months that I've been a mom but my life is already overtaken by the D word. That's right, Diapers. Changing them, washing them, changing them and then washing them once again. Despite the overdose, I love it. Let me tell you why. 

For the first month of motherhood, my newborn was constantly in and out of  nappies and since it was a harsh winter back then, the number was significantly high! I was in recovery mode from the surgery but got no rest, tending a colicky and leaky baby. I hated it and I just didn't want to expose my doll's delicate tushie to the evil chemicals that sposies contained. Also, in the initial weeks, using a disposable only caused her rashes no matter how careful I was about changing her on time. So, I looked around the internet for a solution and I was gifted with the answer of Modern Cloth Diapers. I really didn't know there could be a thing beyond cloth nappies, that could keep my little one dry for hours at once and could be reused a number of times! So in my hunt for 'Good' cloth diapers, I landed up on Charlie Banana webpage who were generous enough to send me a pack of three one size diapers (wohooo!) to try on my baby and review them up here. I couldn't be much happier in doing so. 

Let me tell you this if you haven't already perceived it yet, cloth diapers are a one time investment. You buy a few dozen to build your stash and then you're good to go until your baby is toilet trained. So when buying cloth diapers, you must keep in mind that though they're expensive to begin with, these are going to save you a lot of money in the coming years. One of the reasons why I decided to take it up was the math behind how cloth diapers helps the ecosystem by reducing carbon footprint and are pocket friendly in the longer run. Your one stash for the first baby can be used from birth up to the age of 2 and can be saved & reused if you plan a second one. 

I received a pack of Peony Blossom which contained 3 One Size, 2 in 1 hybrid Cloth Diapers along with 3 additional microfiber inserts. Each diaper has a large size MF insert and can be stuffed with the additional small insert. It is recommended to add both inserts if the baby is above 3 months of age. The inner layer of diapers if made of fleece and the other layer is PU. In times if need you can also use a disposable insert in the diapers, hence Two in One. 

To begin with, Charlie Banana diapers have the SOFTEST inner layer of all the diapers in my stash! Its so soft that I actually rubbed it on my cheeks to feel it (when it was new and unused, of course!). Fastened by snaps, these can be easily adjusted according to the baby's age and weight. That's what i'm tryin to show in the pictures below how snugly it fit my 3 month old daughter and her 7 month old cousin. Sure double inserts looked little bulky on my DD but they don't look that big on the cousin, if you notice. The best part is the bra strap adjustment system for leg elastic that are perfect for kids any age or size. That's one thing I like the most since my DD is on the slimmer side with skinny thighs. A better fit on the legs ensures there are no leaks or blowouts. A flap in the front makes it so much easier to remove the inserts since the baby girl wets the back of the diaper mostly. Also, its great to keep disposable inserts in place. 

These hybrid or 2 in 1 diapers can also be used with disposable inserts when you're out and about with your little one and want to avoid the fuss of carrying a load of diapers. Its like the best of both diaper worlds. Charlie Banana also sells flushable liners and disposable inserts which i would love to purchase soon. 

Another reason why I adore Charlie Banana is that it not only makes luxury yet eco friendly products that are gentle to the environment but they also support Operation Smile and Project Child Save. How often do we see luxury brands that support humane causes! Project Child Save is a non profit organization that is dedicated to helping preventing child abductions and kidnapping through education and public awareness campaigns. Operation Smile is an international medical charity that provides free reconstructive surgeries to children suffering from cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. 

That's my brief take on why I love Charlie Banana Cloth Diapers. If you want to ask more questions, drop me a message or comment and i'd love to discuss! Cloth diapers are all I talk about lately ;)
