OOTD- Movie time with MOM : ) !!!


Ohh rabba main toh mar gyaa oyee..shudaaii mujhe kar gya kar gyaa oyee !!(  and I have fallen for him now; he left me a lovelorn, craving for him).. :D :P
Well yess that's what I feel for Shahid after watching the movie MAUSAM- he looks sooo cutee in itt !! 

Last Monday while I was home and getting bored I went to watch this movie with Mommy- the dearest - after a longgggg time.
Since I have moved to Noida for my studies, I hardly get time to visit home, and even if I do -its just for 3-4days and mostly I spend it lazying around or catching up with friends. So this time, when my friends were busy I decided to go out shopping and watching a movie with mom , also because it was Daughters' Day on Sunday- and soo a good excuse to take mom for shopping ( and get clothes for MEE :D hehhe ).

So as it was just a casual outing, I decided to wear this shirt from Vero Moda with Black lycra pants and a belt. I carried along my new TOPSHOP bag ( earlier featured here) and wore my basic flats I bought from Lajpat Nagar, Delhi. 


Shirt- Vero Moda
Pants- Thrifted
Bag- Topshop
Watch- Playboy
Belt- Big bazaar
Flats- Lajpat Nagar, Delhi



I had soo much fun at the movie, and mom also liked some movie after a longg time saying that it was relatively Neater & CLEANER than the movies being made recently in Bollywood. :D We had a great time later, I purchased few cosmetics and well now am back to the boring routine at college again :(( .

I went shopping at Sarojini Nagar, Delhi today with my friend ( this was my 2nd shopping spree there since I  have come to Noida) and had a great time. 
I would say if you are visiting Delhi, you must check out this market to get some awesome stuff at throw-away prices !!! I would post about my haul later !! : ).

Leaving pictures of the cosmetics I bought the other day and a necklace I had ordered from Aliexpress.com which arrived a couple of days ago !!

Small ZARA haul !!! : )

Hey lovely readers !!
Hope you are enjoying this weekend.. Am at home and kindaa boreddd as all my friends are out partying around in delhi, and am uhmmm enjoying the HOME Comfort- ohkiee its not even that bad- atleast am being pampered :D

Soo sitting idle, I thought of posting about my ZARA haul I had had in the beginning of this month. I had gone to Pacific Mall, Delhi with my best friend and had grabbed few stuff from ZARA at amazing pricessssss ( from the Clearance stock they had back then).

Oversized tee
Original Price- around 1000rs
Bought at- 290rs :D
Well I got this oversize tee in 2 sizes larger than the usual I wear, just so that I can wear it with a comfy camisole beneath and like an Off shoulder tee !! :) And well at 290 bucks it was worth a STEAL !!
Dress/ Tunic
Original price- Rs 1590
Bought at- Rs 550
 I just loved this white dress at the 1st site and was lucky enough to get it in my size. It looks good both ways- worn as a dress or a tunic with leggings / stockings. 


Well sorry for the poor quality pictures but this a very beautiful pleated dress in Peach - cream shade. It was for around Rs 3590 original price but I Got it in just around Rs 600. It had lil lipstick stains over it ( thanks to the lady who didn't know how to try it- HUHHH !! :X ) But well I gave it for dry- cleaning and they have said that the stains with go.. So yayy Lucky ME!!!  : )

Below are the pictures of an Aeropostale tee I ordered from FASHION AND YOU and a shrug I got from Janpath market, Delhi. The shrug is sooo cool and my best partner to wear wear with tubes and spaghettis  and well I got it in just 200rs !! Soo am loving it !!!


I had a shopping spree yesterday too with my mom from a local boutique, would post the pictures later.
Do tell me how you liked my ZARA picks !! And I am just dying to go back to Delhi and go partying with my friends :(( But we have been given a shocker at our college, that we are having 9subjects this trimester , whereas we had thought that final year would be easy and fun !! :(( poor us !!

Lets see if  we can manage to reduce the no. of subjects or not.. Till then hope you are having fun !!
Waiting for your lovely comments !!
Take care and loads of love!! : )

Review / Haul - AliExpress.com !!!

Hi lovely readers !!

Finally my exams got over and am back home for few days. Wow !! what a relief it is to be back at home, enjoying " Ghar ka yummy khaana " and ofcourse the ' Laad- pyaar" of all the famiky members :D.

Anyways in the last couple of weeks I have started writing for Cupid Speaks- a youth platform to share your thoughts and ideas. And my recent article is about how facebook is taking a toll over our own lives. You all can have a read here . This issue has concerned me a lot recently and I feel very bad looking at how badly Facebook is affecting our lives. Don't you all agree too??

Moving back to the blog post- I had mentioned a few weeks earlier that I had purchased a TOPSHOP bag from Aliexpress.com and was eagerly waiting for it to arrive and finally it has comeeeeee !!! so this post is all about it and the website.


  • The website is the best place to find all the latest designs for jewellery, bags and Clothes etc. at very low prices.
  • As the website generally has wholesalers selling their products in lots, you need to refine your search by  looking for FREE DELIVERY and Min. Order 1 unit only options.
  • The bag already priced at £36 cost me only $19.89 and no extra custom charges etc were charged to me. 
  • I paid through my VISA debit card, and website has a secure payment page and ensures that payment is not sent to the seller until and unless we receive our shipment.
  • The seller had promised delivery in 10-15days, though I received it in 20days ( from the date of placing the order, the seller takes 2-3days for processing the order). So I believe its not a bad period considering they don't charge for Shipping.
  • The package came without any damages and defects, wrapped in a plastic bag. The seller also sent me a pair of pearl earrings with GUESS printed on them :P
  • The colour looks slightly different from as shown in the pictures, but then that's because of the lighting and effects, so I was expecting a li'l variation.
Overall am totally satisfied with my purchase, and looking forward to find much more perfect deals at the website. Below are the pictures of the bag from the website and clicked through my phone. 
Have a look !!
Clicked through my phone


The pearl earrings they sent as a gift : )
Pictures from the Topshop website.

So that's all for the day. Would be back with an OOTD soon. Please let me know what you think about my purchase? Have you ever tried shopping with Aliexpress in the past? If yes, please share your experiences here. I am sure it would be of great help for the other followers too.
Waiting for your lovely comments.
Take care !!
XOXO

UPDATE (Aug'14)- Hi everyone! Seems like I have not replied to many queries for this post as I wrote it a long time back. I still do shop with Aliexpress.com and I will post a new review/experience soon. If you have more queries, feel free to mail me at - theshopaholicdiaries@ymail.com

My Autumn - Winter '11 Wishlist !!

Hey lovely readers !!! I have been keeping soooooooo busy with my exams that I have no time to even catch a breath !! But still I managed to do this post today as I got 2 offs before my next exam ( Thank godddd... A much needed relief ) ...


Sooo each and every brand is now out with their Autumn - Winter'11 Collection and as I was checking out their websites, I have also had my picks or say WISHLIST !! Which I would love to share with you all in this post !!!


well this post is gonnaa be a lil Picture heavy- Soo Please cooperateee !! :D Actually I just made few collages to save time looking at all the pictures one by one :D




Forever 21 has been now an year long in India, but yet I haven't been to its store in Delhi even though I live in NCR !!! But looking at their recent collections, I am tempted to go there asap and have a nicee Retail therapy !!
I am in love with the cowl back dress and the Red cape which I think is a must-have this winter!! The lace dresses and tops are very IN this season and Forever 21 has got many of them for us to choose !! : )



FOREVER 21




I really loved the ZARA autumn collection as it has some great jackets and blazers to choose from. I am really looking forward to get the striped jacket and long coat as I don't have a nice coat in my wardrobe yet !! I am not much pleased with the dresses though !! Maybe they look better if seen in person !! But none of them delighted me much in the lookbook except the Violet lace dress and the following tube dress !!





ZARA






MANGO has always been 1 of my favorite brands because they have sooooo much to choose from in different styles and designs.. In their Autumn-Winter collection I have noticed a frequent use of bows and ruffles in many of their designs.. Especially in jackets, cardigans and tops. And I am even not complaining coz I love BOW designs !! They even have some real gorgeous dresses and gowns which I am thinking of checking out In - store and get a nice dress for my birthday ( which is still 2 months away, but we girls can't stop planning.. Isn't It?? :D )












So that's all for now, I Would be posting in a day or 2 the stuff I bought at my last shopping spree at ZARA !! I really really wanna share with you all what lovely picks I got from there :D
Anyways I hope you liked my picks above and do tell me if you all have checked out the new collections at other brands !!  And am just totally enjoying the freaking sexy weather here in Greater noida, finally its raining like pure bliss !!! and am just loving it, but I just wished that I didn't have exams and could enjoy the rains going out with my friends !! But alas- Its time to get back to my books !! : ((

Would catch ya all soon again !!
take caree !! 
Tadaaa !!
XOXO

OOTD- Girls' Day Out !!!

Hey everyone !!
As promised am back with an OOTD post !! yayy !! :D 


One of my bestesttt friends has come to stay in Noida for 2months as a part of her internship so I went to meet her after like 1 year... It was justttttt amazinggggggggg.... We went to Pacific Mall, Tagore Garden about which I had heard some sexy reviews and also it has some super nice brands like ZARA, FCUK, TOMMY, Vero Moda all under 1 roof !!! Isnt it amazing?


The mall is really spacious and food court has the best of the fast food joints of India. Its surely a fun place. Though crowd is not that good maybe because of the location. But the place is worth visiting..


I shopped at ZARA for 2 dresses and a top ( I would be posting the pictures in the next post ) and also we went to the Rajouri market later and bought shoes from a shop there.


After the day out she came to stay at my hostel and we really had a great time ( actually not- because we were busy searching for good PGs for her online but still we managed to have our share of fun :D ).


So as it was very hot outside that day, I decided to wear something super comfy and I chose the following outfit. Check out the pictures !!


Dress- KAZO
Bag- Cherry Berry
Watch- Fastrack
Shoes- Local shoe store


In the last picture you can see the necklace I had bought from Thailand which I didn't wear for much time coz of the weather as it had started irritating me !!
Also you can see the purple ballerina I got from Rajouri market- ain't they cute??? My friend bought the same in Turquoise Blue !! 

That's it for the day,.. I would be doing a couple of posts more before I take a break from blogging coz of my exams which start from 14th this month!!! And am dead for sureeeeeee as I haven't read a wordddddd !! : ( May god bless ME!! :D

Anyways do tell me how you liked my outfit !! Waiting for your lovely comments !!
Take care !!
Tadaaa  : )

Get SMARTER, Online Shopping Freaks !!! Lemme tell you how !! 8)

Hey everyone !!! 


I hope you all are doing good !! This post is not about my various shopping hauls or the OOTD that I had been thinking to post since a long time !! : P
But yessss about a topic I have been thinking about very strongly since last few months !!


With the increase of online shopping sites and fashion bloggers, we can see many facebook pages and some special sales websites / new websites coming up with tempting clothes and accessories at very reasonable prices !!
And thinking that these must be from the LIMITED / Designer collection - we all get tempted to buy them at the very 1st look !!


But wait !! Did you ever think that the sellers might be getting it from somewhere else too and selling it to us at relatively much higher prices !! So how to get the BEST VALUE and the BEST PRICED goods ???




Well here are a few tips which would help you in doing BETTER & SMARTER ONLINE SHOPPING !!



  •  There are many wholesale websites selling Export surplus items or China made goods at very low prices plus free international shipping.
  • If you wanna purchase a single item you can customize your search and look for items offering free international shipping and minimum 1 piece purchase.
  • If you like some item at a website / Facebook page- check out the authenticity of the item- ask the seller if its custom made or imported.
  • Check the item first at websites like- Aliexpress.com , wholesale-dress.net, dinodirect.com etc. which sell the items directly from the Chinese wholesellers and also at much cheaper rates.
  • Sometimes the items are sold saying that - We have only 1 EXCLUSIVE piece- that's not always true- Its a selling STRATEGY !! So dont be in the misconception that you are the lone proud owner of that item.
  • Dying to buy that TOPSHOP bag or ZARA dress you saw at the brand website- Search it at google to check the sellers giving out export surplus stock at almost half the prices ( or even low ).
  • The most ideal approach towards saving big bucks as you shop online is to hunt down some good deals on auction or price comparison website.
  • However, make sure that you don’t fall prey to scam deals which are being offered on low-quality products. Cheap shopping doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on buying inefficient and useless products. It all depends on how and where you invest your money.
  • Shop with the websites offering secure payment options only. And most of the international websites require an international debit card / credit card or a Paypal account. Paypal is in my views the safest online payment option, you can connect your bank account to it easily.
I hope these tips help you all to shop smartly and efficiently. Online shopping is fun and by grabbing discount coupons and promo codes, anyone can buy the products and items they desire to get their hands on. So, explore these cheap shopping ideas and indulge yourself in the online shopping world to get smart savings.... : ) 

Take care !!
Loads of love !!!

Found the funny cartoon,.. heheh !! enjoy !! :D
