If her shoes are not cozy, then she can’t be seated comfortable during different ceremonies. Given below are the guidelines to make the best choice of shoes:-

My Shopping experience with Limeroad.com

Hi

Nowadays almost everything can be bought online. There are like a thousand shopping sites where you can order and get the stuff delivered at your doorstep. Because of the convenience online shopping offers combined with a huge collection and prompt delivery, I have started to shop online A LOT these days (Much to my mother’s annoyance as she has to receive the package everytime 😀 ). I have already reveiwed Jabong and Quikr on the blog and this time I am reviewing Limeroad.com.

limeroad screenshot

Limeroad.com is one of its own e-commerce website in India. They have a huge collection of a variety of things- from apparel to jewellery, from home decor, kitchen & dining to bath and linen. Their collection is refreshing and different from other major shopping sites. But the major thing which makes Limeroad.com stand out from the myriad of other online shopping sites is its scrapbook feature. It lets its users to create fashion collages and share among their friends. With the scrapbooking feature, a whole look can be created using various products on the site which is really helpful in deciding how the product will look or the ways a product can be styled.

My shopping experience with Limeroad.com

Limeroad.com is easy to browse. It has different categories for every department and everything is sorted neatly on the website. The website is clean and clutter free.

I have mixed reviews for this shopping site. I will start with what I ordered. I wanted to check out the products from apparel, jewellery and kitchen stuff. The collection is new and refreshing but the brands are less known. They should include more brands especially well known ones  from mid-high price range. I have shopped from three categories – Apparel, jewellery and kitchen tableware.

1. Apparel–  Black sequined Tshirt

I placed an order for this Tshirt and I was informed about the status of the order at each step via email and text. It was delivered within two days. However, when I opened the package to try the Tshirt for fitting, the color of the tshirt looked faded and not like the pic shown on their website. Also, it smelled weirdly- stale and naphthalene balls types. New clothes should smell fresh but this one was weird. I had an issue with the size and I liked the Tshirt but the color difference and the stale smell was off-putting. Therefore, I had to return it and now I am apprehensive for buying another apparel as most of the brands on this site are not well-known.

Status: Returned for Quality issues

 

2. Jewellery– Earrings

I fell in love with these danglers the moment I saw them. So, I immediately placed an order for these. I placed an order on June 14th and the estimated delivery was 4-6 days. I kept waiting for the earrings only to receive a mail on 23rd (after 9 days) that the order has been cancelled. However, the refund process was hassle-free. Since I liked the product a lot I tried to place the order again, only to find the product is no longer there on their website.

Status: Order cancelled due to operational issues.

 

3. Kitchen tableware – Soup spoons

I wanted to buy spoons and so I browsed their Kitchen section. They have a huge collection of kitchen ware and it looks pretty good. However, they didn’t mention the size of the spoons which could have been helpful. So, I had to follow my instincts in deciding the size. The spoons came nicely bubble wrapped in bright green packaging. The order was delivered in two days.

 

Overall, I have mixed reviews for shopping at Limeroad.com. The collection is refreshing and they have a wide range of products. The scrapbooking feature is innovative and helpful. They keep the users well-informed about the status of the order via email. The products are properly packed and delivered on time. Returns are hassle free. But there is a need to incorporate more brands especially widely known ones. Also, they should look into the quality of products they deliver.

My Shopping experience with Jabong.com

Shopping online is such a rage these days I tell you. I am sure everyone must have bought something or the other online by now (If not, are you living under the rocks dear?? 😛). And we girls have so many needs be it makeup or clothes or shoes or beauty or skin care, it is difficult to hit the mall for every other need. This is where online shopping comes to the rescue. You have the luxury of sitting comfortably in your home,sipping mug full of hot steaming coffee while shopping.

And speaking of online shopping, my favorite site to shop is Jabong.com. It has an amazing collection of apparel, bags, footwear, jewellery, makeup, home furnishings. And not to miss their heavy discounts. They have one deal or the other always going on!

I have bought so many things from Jabong.com that I thought I should do a review. So this time I bought few newly launched Street wear lipsticks.

I ordered the lipsticks on 27th night and received it by 29th noon. Isn’t this amazing. They ship the order next day itself, although it may take 2-3 days to get it delivered depending on your location.

My order came in a black colored box which was properly packed and taped. The meaning of Jabong was written on the inside of the flap. Quite informative as I’m sure nobody knows what Jabong actually means.

The lipsticks were properly wrapped in individual packaging and then bubble wrapped to prevent any damage during transit.

I am happy with my order. 🙂 This is what I bought.

My Shopping experience with Quikr.com!

We all in India are familiar with Quikr.com. Everyone must have seen the ad on TV where a wife wants to get rid of her red sofa set as it doesn’t match her blue walls (I know!) and a guy wants to buy one urgently after moving to a new place…and Bam! Quikr to the rescue and problem solved. You can see the ad HERE.

quikr buyer aur seller ka perfect matchmaker

For anyone not familiar with the site, Quikr.com is India’s largest online classifieds portal where people can connect with each other to buy or sell goods and services. Launched in 2008 with the vision for buyers and sellers to “meet online, transact offline”, today Quikr.com has over 4.2 million listings and have generated over 150 million replies. Headquartered in Mumbai, Quikr operates from 940 cities across India. It has over 13 categories and 170 sub-categories, with the most popular being mobile phones and electronics, real estate, cars and bikes.

My Shopping Experience

For ease of understanding, I am posting a step wise experience of my shopping with Quikr.com

1. Firstly, select the city you live in so that all the sellers near your place get filtered. If your city is not listed in the popular cities, go to ‘More cities’

quikr.com 1

 

 

2. From the different categories, choose the category of the product you are looking for. It will take you to an array of subcategories. I wanted to search for an acoustic guitar, so I headed to Home and Lifestyle category and thereafter to Musical Instruments subcategory.

quikr.com 2

You can also type your product directly in the search bar at top and it will show you all the products matching your search term.

quikr.com 4

 

 

3.  Upon Clicking on Musical Instruments subcategory, one can see that Quikr.com has a huge listings of musical instruments. You can click here to see it : http://ghaziabad.quikr.com/Musical-Instruments/w18222214068

quikr.com 7

Set filters in the left panel to see the best match of products you are looking for.

4. I was looking for an acoustic guitar since I broke my previous one. I didn’t want to buy a new one because most of the time I play my electric guitar but it’s always good to have an acoustic guitar as well.. you know, just for those days you want to play one! 🙂

So I thought why not check on quikr.com as buying an old guitar will fit the bill perfectly. And quikr.com had so many great deals. I never thought I will find one to my liking, and not just one, I found so many to choose from!

quikr.com 5

5. I finally narrowed it down to a few. For the first guitar I chose, I noted down the phone number of the seller and whatsapped him for the info. I liked the guitar a lot and it was in good condition, but the seller quoted a very high price. It was above my budget and the fella was reluctant to budge. I tried to convince him that one can get a brand new for the price he is asking, but he kept on stressing on the color of his guitar, cherry color being more expensive. Since it was above my budget even after the little bargaining he did, I politely thanked him and moved on.

I kept on looking for more and finally stumbled on THIS guitar.

quikr.com 6

 

It looked good in the photo and I contacted the seller for more info. I asked the seller how old it was, what accessories he was providing and how many times it was used. The strings were little rusty but he was providing additional strings to compensate. He had quoted the guitar for Rs 6500 and my budget was Rs. 5000. After bargaining he finally agreed to my budget and so we finalized the deal. We agreed to meet at a fixed place and he brought the guitar there. After inspecting I bought it finally. The whole thing was done within 24 hours!! I contacted the seller in morning and bought it by evening itself.

I am happy with my as-good-as-new guitar. I got the cover, 4 picks, tuner, 4 strings and allen key along with the guitar.

 Here are a few pointers on using Quikr.com

If you are a Seller:

1. Please share photos!

The more the better. Some sellers don’t have photo for their products which makes it very difficult for buyer to finalize the product. Chances are the buyer won’t even read your ad, let alone considering it to buy.

2. Provide information

Please tell a few basic things about your product like when it was bought, how many times it has been used, if you are giving any accessory along (if applicable). A good description of the product is always helpful. Also, please give correct information.

3. Please give correct contact info.

Also, get missed calls alert activated on your mobile phone if you need to switch off your mobiles frequently. It may happen that your phone is not reachable and if someone is genuinely interested in your product and is unable to contact you, you may lose the opportunity.

 

If you are a Buyer:

1. If a product interests you, don’t hesitate to contact the person on the number provided. Call, message, whatsapp…whatever suits you. However it may take longer if you email.

2. Show your bargain skills! Don’t hesitate to bargain. The prices quoted by the sellers are often negotiable. So don’t let go of a product you really like thinking how you wish it was little cheaper.

3. Inspect the product properly before buying.

 

Thats it folks. This was my first shopping experience with Quikr.com. I admit I was hesitant at first as I had never bought anything from such online classifieds. Being an avid user of online shopping sites, I was apprehensive about the way Quikr.com works. But everything kept falling in the right place. The site is easy to use. You basically search for your product, finalize it, contact the seller and finally buy from them. Not only products you can even find services and property on this site.

Overall, it was a good experience shopping on Quikr.com 🙂
