After taking a pledge to not burst phatakas, eating too many mithais, dancing, performing the Laxmi Puja and eating way too many mithais again, I fell into my bed and did not wake up for an entire day. And when I did, I found my stomach to be completed bloated, my skin dry and itchy and my hair well, I can’t even begin to describe it. So, I decided to take matters into my hand and do something healthy post the festive craze.
I should join a gym was my first thought but my near empty wallet just chuckled at me. I gave it a disdainful look and decided that I would go jogging every morning! See, now that sounded good.
Next on my list, was my skin and hair. I could clearly not afford a spa and so I decided to bring the spa to my home. I made a list of products that I would need, added jogging shoes and track pants to my list and left for the mall.
I would walk into a store, look at the prices and make a hasty retreat. The prices had gone up overnight! All the discounted clothes were now proudly displayed at their original rates. I ran out of the mall and entered the local market. I found one or two good things here and there but most of the products were of poor quality. I returned home with a glum face; I am never going to look pretty again!
That is when my mom, who can’t bear to see a frown on my face, told me, “Why don’t you try shopping online? That way you will save a lot of taxi fare and the products will be delivered at home”
I love my mom!
I quickly checked out the various websites but I realized that even though they were priced lower than the malls, this little broke girl could not afford it. But then I saw a small advertisement about a coupon website and I clicked on it. Lo and behold! I was in heaven! There were so many beauty and clothing related deals for so many shopping websites, even my favourite ones. I could get a significant amount of discount, buy something that is of great quality and get it delivered at home for free. Now, this is every girl’s dream come true, isn’t it? I checked out the various deals and started shopping instantly.
And now, I am just waiting for those amazing products to be delivered at home so that I can start reviewing them for you 🙂
