Eid Shopping With Sareez.com

Hello Every one
Today i am going to do a Website Review and share my Eid Shopping  Experience with  Sareez.com 

About The Store :
Sareez.com is an online store for  Apparels and Accessories for Women , Men and Kids .
It had a great collection of Ethnic wears like sarees , Salwar suits , Lehnga Choli  , Gowns , Western wear etc .
One can get Excellent product at Affordable Price at this store .
They provide free shipping across India , they also do international shipping .

My Shopping Experience 
Since the holy month of Ramzaan is going on and after this there is Eid Festival so i had to do lots of shopping specially ethnic wears for Ramzaan and Eid .
Earlier i used to shop from shopping malls and Boutiques but past few years i am shopping many products from online stores because of ease of shopping , good discounts etc .
So this year also  i thought of  buying some clothes from some  online stores .
I was looking for stores with good ethnic wears like Salwar kameez and Anarkalis .
When i saw this site , i browsed for some salwar suits , i was amazed to see a great collection of clothes .  It was too difficult for me to choose just one product from this site .
I liked many and wanted to buy , but since this was a first time shopping experience from this site , i decided to order just one , so that i can check the quality of product  and  see their  delivery service .
I chose one Salwar kameez from this site , they provide the option of stitching at  an extra cost , i opted that also .
After placing the order it took some ten days for the product to reach me , it took some extra time because of stitching option .
Finally when i received the parcel  i was so happy to see excellent packaging and a great product .


The product was packed in  small carton box , it was done with perfection .

Now have a look on my Salwar suit


This is a beautiful set of Salwar , Kameez and Dupatta .
I had given my measurement  to them but still i was worried that whether it would be done perfectly or not . As most of time tailors do some or the other  mistakes , but to my relief and surprise the stitching was perfect . They have beautifully stitched the suit with inner lining , Zip etc .



So i am too happy to discover an  Excellent and Reliable Online store  from where i can buy beautiful ethnic wears of my choice , in an affordable price  with free shipping and stitching option .

One thing i would like to mention that many a times when we are shopping from any online stores , quality of clothes or apparels are not same as shown in the image .
When we  see the image at the website , the cloth looks great but when we receive it the color and quality differs , then we feel cheated that after spending a good amount we have not got what we were expecting .
But in this case its not like that . The quality of cloth is too good and there is no difference in what was shown in the image at the site and what the cloth is .


Product link
Patiala Salwar Kameez

So its the same what i got , no poor quality product or different color which many other stores write that color of product may vary because of lighting effect and all .

I just loved this suit and had good shopping experience with this site .
Would surely recommend this to all , who like to buy good quality products at affordable price .

One can check the store here :
Sareez.com

Right now many discounts and promotions are going on at the site , one can check and indulge themselves in buying some great ethnic wears .

How I Won A Car From Adytude.com

Hello Every one
Today I want to Share my Journey of Winning a Car from site Adytude.com .

I am very active in participating in contests and giveaways as  it gives lots of happiness and fun .
Past 4 years I had participated and  won many facebook contests and blogs giveaways .
Its a good time pass for me as I do not watch TV serials  as I cannot follow useless serials for years , watching all negative stuffs . So for me  my source of entertainment is internet , writing posts for my blog , participating in contests and giveaways , and when I win and get some good stuff that  makes me happy and content that I have utilized my free time in a good way .

I randomly search many thing on net , I am a member of  many sites and forums .
I constantly try new and different things and stick to ones which are interesting .

So last year on face book I  saw  Adytude.com's page .
The concept was very simple , Rating and Reviewing Ads .
I thought I can do this easily , since I am a blogger I can write some good reviews .
I joined the site and started reviewing the ads .
A member has to review only two ads per day and some points are awarded for that .
When that  point gets  accumulated one can redeem some gifts from their Reward store .
Their Reward store is too good , I got some Amazon.in  vouchers and some other gifts from there .
I was very active on that site , I used to login daily and review ads , I always wrote good reviews .
I wrote what I felt about the ad , good and bad both .
Its like what the viewer feels about the ad and how it can be improved or made better .

I always do my work with  passion , put my Heart and Soul in it .
Try to make it The Best .
So there also I did the same .

I had joined Adytude.com  in October 2015 .
After four months at the end of January  2016 , one day I got a mail from their team that  I have been  chosen as the one of the  Best  Performers .
That was a great thing for me , getting recognized for my work .
Then after few days again I got a mail that I am among Top 3 Performers .
I am eligible for winning a Car .
I was so happy but still not sure that I can win a car , that's  a big thing .
So i did not discussed this with any one , not even with my close family members .
They asked me to send some documents , for KYC ( Know Your Customer ).
Scanned copy of my passport , Pan card etc .
I send that all to them .
On 1st February 2016 , in the morning i got a mail from them that I have been chosen as the Winner of Grand Prize , a car , Datsun Go .
I was so happy and excited that I could not understand what to do ?
Then I checked the facebook page of Adytude.com and saw my Photo there as Grand Prize Winner .
Before I could understand and accept that such a big thing has happened , this news got viral on facebook , my friends and relatives started congratulating me .
It really took some time to accept that this has really happened.
My kids were  more excited then me that mama has won a car .
This is the image that as posted on their page that day .


That excitement continued for many days , got calls and messages from near and dear ones .
And after that their team contacted me for further proceedings , paper works  and all .
They said this will take time as lots of paper work is involved .
I did what they said .
First choose a car dealer in your city from where you want to get that car .Then choose a car .
Then they send me some legal documents to be signed by me and the dealer .
This whole process took some 4 months ,  which was a long period , at times i used to feel irritated that its taking so much of time , but I had no other option but to wait .
At any point of time i did not  had a doubt that i will not get my prize , I was 200% sure that i will get as i am the winner of Quest 3 of their site , before me  two other persons had got car from the site .
But the waiting time was too long .
Finally when every thing was done i told them to close this before the Holy Month of Ramzaan as it would be difficult for  me to visit the showroom again and again in Ramzaan .
So finally just a day before  Ramzaan they decided  that the Key Giving Ceremony will be done .
A representative from their team would come to the showroom to hand over the keys to me.

6th June was decided as the D Day , I got the number of their Representative and talked with her , she said she will be at the showroom  at 3 PM , we also reached there that time .
And the keys were given to me with lots of good wishes .
My kids were Super Excited and it was a Golden Moment of my life .





I would like to thank the entire Adytude team for choosing  me as the Best Performer and giving me a chance to win a car .
I would also like to thank the employees of Datsun Showroom at Hitech city , Hyderabad for being very cooperative .

For my Readers and friends , I am sharing this experience with all so that others can also get inspired and try their luck at Adytude.com and many more such contests , we never know what Great Things and Opportunities are stored for us by the Almighty .

How To Teach Kids To Share The Load

Kids learn what they see at their  home and surroundings .

They imitate what  elders do , even while playing innocent games like that related to family and kitchen , a young girl plays the role of mom doing all house hold chores and cooking delicious food for her family , a young boy plays the role of dad watching TV or reading news paper .
This is because they have been seeing this at their home , mom busy with house hold chores .Whether or not she is a working professional or a simple home maker , she is responsible for all house hold chores like cooking , cleaning and laundry .
Till last generation this was OK as women used to stay at home and be a good home maker but now with the change in economy and  living style , more and women are coming out of their home to do a job and get a good pay package , with this the work pressure on her gets doubled and most of time they feel tired and exhausted and in the long run it leads to several  health problems .

So now men also try to share the load of their wives specially if she is a working professional .
They try to help their wives in laundry , grocery shopping and sometimes cooking too .

We need to teach our kids this Share The Load concept as  this would help them to understand their partners better and  this sharing the load concept bring a positive atmosphere at home . 


Ways to Teach our Children this Share The Load Concept :

1.To teach them to Respect Women

All young boys should be taught to respect women and girls .
To be humble and polite with them and to share their work to make them feel happy .
Like i always tell my son that he needs to help his sisters in every thing , in doing their home work and other small house hold works like cleaning their room , arranging their toys etc.
This is not only a girls job but also a boys work .

2. Through Games and Stories

I always encourage my kids to play together  what ever they are playing .
Be it be Cricket or Badminton or carrom at home  they need to play together , its not that girls can't play cricket , they can play everything . So this creates a healthy competition between them that who will be the best player . And they learn that a girl is capable of doing every thing which a boys does .

Even while telling stories  i try to make them understand that  Boys and Girls are equal , so we love them equally and in a home  both the partners are responsible for doing daily house hold chores .

3. By showing Practically what is told to them 
Only preaching and no action does not makes any sense .
So what we teach and say we do it and make them understand . Like my husband does his laundry himself , teaching them how to clean your clothes yourself . During weekends he cooks some delicious food saying let mama take rest for a day .
He  also helps me in cleaning and grocery shopping .
This way we have taught our kids that both husband and wife are equally responsible for doing house hold chores .

This all has created a positive atmosphere at my home where every one is doing some house hold chores , me , my husband and my kids . So the  work load is shared among all , so that one person does not gets exhausted in doing every thing alone .
This also helped us to get some free time  during  weekends so that we can spend some quality time together , go to some amusement  park or  go for a long drive etc .
Thus having lots of fun time during weekends and holidays .




(image source :Here )


Now its our responsibility to take the message of #ShareTheLoad to next generation so that we can raise them with right values of gender equality in the house hold .

I am taking part in the #ShareTheLoad Challenge with Ariel and Aksharaat BlogAdda.

Fun Riding With Datsun Redi Go

Living in a  Metro city like Hyderabad has its own advantages and disadvantages .
Where in one can have the feeling of enjoying both worlds like Urban and Classy as well as Old and Antique , one has to cope up with many other factors like Load shedding , traffic jams , pollution , scarcity of water in summer etc .
I am living in this city past 11 years and I really love this city .

On weekends we go for long drive , either to some amusement parks or shopping malls or some times to  outskirts  of city . Commuting long distances in big city is not easy . One can use public transport like local buses , cabs , auto rickshaws etc or if one has a personal vehicle , that's the best option .
One does not needs to wait for bus or cab , one does not needs to pay a good amount as fare and most important when one is on wheels the feeling of driving a luxury car has its own charm .

But since every coin has two sides , so driving their own vehicle has also some challenges like

1.Traffic Jams  

 Since most of the cities in India specially Metro cities are over populated and there are too many vehicles on road , one has to face the traffic jam problem . If one is struck up in a jam then takes too much of time to come out of it and lot of time is wasted there .

2.Parking Problem

If a shopping complex , amusement park or a mall has parking space then its good or else one really finds it difficult to park the car any where on the road and protect it from  getting scratches and dents .

So choosing a Right Car is as important as Choosing a house to live in where one tries  to get the best of every thing in their budget .

While choosing a Car one has to look for following factors :

1. Price --It should be with in one's budget .
2.Looks --Gone are the days when people were happy with looks of an Ambassador car , now people want  car with sporty and classy looks .
3.Mileage --This is a very important factor as this helps to decide the maintenance cost of car .
4.Size -- Some people look for big and spacious car specially if their family size is big but many opt for small sized car .
5.Safety --This is one of the most important or deciding factor before choosing a car as one can compromise on other factors but not on this .

And depending on their budget and preference one always tries to buy the best car available in market . 

Since now a days a car is not only a Luxury Product but also a necessity one should look for three important factors like

FUN , FREEDOM , CONFIDENCE

FUN -- Driving a car should be Fun , one should not feel exhausted with driving a car.

FREEDOM -- It should give freedom from worries like getting late for office , poor mileage , too much of maintenance cost .

CONFIDENCE --It should give confidence that one is driving one of the best cars in the city .

I have a Hyundai Accent which we have been using past many years , its a good car , the only problem we faced is parking issues . Many a times during peak shopping hours on weekends it was difficult to get suitable parking space .

Recently when I browsed Datsun Redi Go website I was amazed to see its features .
This car has several good features  , the three excellent features which appealed me most are :

1.The Fuel Economy :

25.17 Km/L is too good and economic .

2.Small Turning Radius

Because of the compact design of Datsun Redi Go it can make a full turn around with just 4.7 metre turning radius .So its quite handy when one is in a tight spot .

3.Spacious Interior

 Datsun Redi Go has spacious interior .
Good leg space  with seating for five make it an ideal family car and  with space for luggage  one is ready to move where  ever they want .

I would like to go for a test drive of this car in my city Hyderabad .
And would like to test this car for it speed and efficiency , also would like to check small turning radius feature .

I think this car with many Unique and excellent features would surely help  me and many others  to beat the urban driving blues where one is struck up in a traffic jam and  wants to get out of it immediately and  one wants to get the best of every thing , good mileage , spacious interiors , classy look .

Nissans Datsun Redi Go  offers some of the best features which a car should have .
It is a unique  combination of style and comfort  made with the best of Japanese technology .

It gives a sense of freedom and confidence , best suited for Urban Indians who want speed with style .

 With several excellent features like Power steering , Fuel economy , Classy look and style it makes one of the best car for Urban India .
