There are hundred and thousand of merits of internet but the biggest one is online shopping. I prefer online shopping because you can easily avoid crowd while you shop and during festivals and special occasions, the crowd can really give you a bad headache, forcing you to make hurried purchases often times and you have a hard time to find parking space also.
One of my favorite online shopping destination is Jabong. Why???? Let me take you on a virtual tour of shopping online on Jabong with me. Lets start......
Following things I found the best on this portal.
1. Well Designed:
The very first thing that is striking about this site is that the entire website is well designed and you need not to struggle to search something specific. Home page has a big search button (highlighted in red) right after company's name. There is information about new arrivals and Jabong street market on top of the left panel.
2. Hassle Free:
I liked the way they have categorized all the products in three main categories....Men, Women & kids. Under each category there are sub categories like shoes, clothing, bags and lot more. Hover your mouse on sub category and there will be a systematic list of products like I hovered mouse on 'Home & Furniture' and list of Furniture, Home Accessories, home Furnishing & Brands appeared. Choose your product from right here no need to open page after page. See it's hassle free.
3. Vast Collection: After clicking on 'Wall and Table Decor' from the list under 'Home Accessories' I landed directly on the page shown below. Can you see I found 900 Items. There were so many good possible choices available that it was difficult for me to make a decision. I am sure you will be spoiled for choice. Name the brand and it is available. Also one can get the latest trends from around the world without spending any extra money on airfare.
4. Time Saving: The best part was that I could narrow my search by clicking on the options given on left panel. Shop according to your budget click on price range given on left panel. No need to scroll down a long page of products those are not of your interest or are heavy on your pocket.
Simply choose your product, brand, color and price range from the left panel to narrow your search and save your valuable time. There is one more option to save your time is 'Quick View' to see the product description and its price quickly.
5. Product Display:
The next thing that amazed me on this site is the product display. As soon as I clicked 'Quick View' a pop-up window appeared with all the details about product. Everything about product was given here like brand, price, availability, size, payment options and most importantly pictures with different views and all the dimensions.
This is the another view of product with dimensions.
6. Multiple and Secured Payment Options:
Now when I was fully satisfied with the description and images of product I chose the next button I clicked was 'BUY' and they have various mode of payment. Pay through :
Credit Card/ Debit card
Net banking and
Most popular in India COD (Cash On Delivery)
You need not worry about your confidential information as their payment gateway is secured by RapidSSL and Norton powered by VeriSign.
So no worries go ahead and pay without thinking twice.

Sharing with all my wonderful blog readers and friends festive joy and happiness in and around my home this Diwali. As 67% of my audiences are from other countries I have provided links to some words to make them understand the meaning and significance of the words I used.
Lets enter my haven...............
Rangoli made in haste but making entrance to my home cheerful and inviting.
My l'il sister also tried her hand and I must say she'd done a good job.
Placed diya(earthen lamp) at night on rangoli.
My hubby taught me to make Mango leaves Toran (decorative door hanging) without using any needle the way people do in South India and I love to adorn entrance with these leaves on each festival.
Festive glow inside..........
Some goodies for loved ones..........
Some lovely corners........
Filled with colors and festive glow
Lit diyas up and placed them everywhere around the home.
Floating candles and petals spreading festive magic.
These earthen pots I made specially for Diwali and ambiance they created was heart warming.
Warm glow and beauty, a perfect combination to uplift festive spirit.
Marigold adding beauty to decor.........
A very Happy Diwali to all of you :)

What you do with dried plants. I had a dried Basil (Tulsi) plant for quite some time and recently I gave it a new life. I turned it into a 'Jewel Tree'. Diwali is a festival when we add lot of bling to our decor and this jewel tree is looking just perfect to give any corner or nook an instant cheer.
Under this tree is standing lord Krishna playing flute and Radha is sitting mesmerized by it's melody.
Any guess what these jewels are made of. Well this jewel is not expensive one. It's ball made of aluminium foil. I just hung some foil balls onto the branches and some balls I glued on them. Then I painted the branch in silver color and the jewel tree is ready.You can hang some colorful stones or gems also.
Now take a look of few more cheerful corners in my home.

Diwali is just around the corner and you all decor enthusiast must be thinking of some nice table arrangements for this festive season. Sometimes we get bored of using same things again and again for all the occasions. So this time I come up with the idea of using some mundane household objects for some pleasing and not so expensive tablescape.
First thing you need is some nice table runner. Forget about those table runners you already have used number of times. Try to use dupatta or rich textile as table runner, idea is to add bling and luxury to your decor. Now that you are done with table runner part comes the next step of arranging things those are going to be part of your tablescape.
Put your mundane household objects to good use. Hunt for things that can serve as a candle or diya holder like I used frame of my broken tea cups as diya holder.
Then I put small clay pots that I have painted some time back on top of the cup frames and on table runner.
I plucked a palm leaf and then cut the fronds(Smaller leaf structures that grow on stem) in same size and then arranged them in clay pot as shown in picture. Now put tealight or diya on it and see the magical effect.
Now leaving you with some pictures. Take a look and let me know what do you think.
