Premium Laundry Services Are Here!

Hello, my dear readers!

How many of you are fussy about your laundry like me? 😛

I always prefer washing my clothes by hand, with a gentle liquid detergent. I don’t even trust washing machines to do the job well! But with a hectic job, it’s tough to always find time for the chore; my clothes end up piling up 😦

Recently, I learnt about a new laundry service called Mink.

I received the offer to get any three items laundered by Mink in exchange for an honest review. I am excited to share my experience with you guys 😀

So, I sent across an AND dress, a prized sari (raw silk with zari work) of mine and a precious rug which had gotten stained. I forgot to take pictures of the dress and sari before I sent it to the Mink team but I remembered to click the carpet 😛

Look at that patch on top, off-centre. I wanted this cleaned so I could store it properly, but I couldn’t figure out where or when to get it cleaned. Mink’s timing couldn’t have been better! 😀

So, the process began. The pickup was quite smooth and efficient. An executive from Mink collected my items and gave me a receipt.IMG_20151016_212057943

After 3 days – which I felt was a long wait – I received a call informing me that my stuff was ready to be delivered. The coordination was very efficient! I got held up at work and the Mink executive was gracious enough to delay his visit for my convenience 🙂

I was pleasantly surprised when I received my laundered stuff neatly folded and presented in Mink’s branded packaging ❤

I’ll just sum up by saying that these premium laundry services seem like a boon. There are many other like me, who are very particular about their clothes but are not able to give it time. With Mink’s efficient pickup-and-drop facility and smooth communication, we can goodbye to our laundry hassles! 😎

Shopping Online with Coupons!

Hello dear readers ❤

Today I want to share something exciting with you. I’m sure many of you share the same guilty pleasure with me, that is shopping online 😛

And what better than discount coupons to shed our guilt of shopaholism? O:)

So today, I’ll share my no-guilt pass with you – CouponzGuru.com! This website is not only an aggregator of discount coupons but also gives you exclusive offers for brands like Jabong, Stalkbuylove, Amazon, Koovs, LenskartYepme and Askmebazaar!

So, here goes my experience on Couponzguru:

A pop-welcomed me to the site, encouraging me to sign up for free coupons. I’m all for it – count me right in! 😉

The home page is filled with a myriad of coupons – Ebay, Askmebazaar, American Swan, Lenskart, Shopclues, Yepme, Paytm etc etc.

There’s something for everyone on Couponzguru. Travel, banking, food :burrito:, electronics, fashion, domestics and even mobile recharge!

CG4

As a fashion blogger, and simply as someone who want a new top, I decided to go for clothing coupons! 😀

CG2

They have it all – Flipkart, Jabong, Amazon, Stalkbuylove, Trendin, Shoppers Stop and Faballey, just to name a few.

After exploring for a while, I decided to go with Jabong’s Flat 20% Off (on new arrivals) coupon! It led me to a new tab with this popup:

In the previous tab, I had been directed to the Jabong merchant site where I could shop. SO convenient! After some tedious browsing, I fell for this beautiful yellow top (worth INR 1299) which is perfect for both work and play.

Using the flat 20% off offer from Couponzguru, I was able to get the top for INR 1091 😀

Next, I realised that I needed to get some skincare products. I couldn’t believe my luck when I found a flat 30% off coupon for Lotus products from Askmebazaar!

I ended up ordering this skincare combo which has all my favourite products – and at an unbeatable price.

To sum it up, I had a smooth sail on Couponzguru. I had only a few “hiccups” – when I came across some expired coupons. But the sheer availability of many more coupons made up for it I guess 😉

Happy Shopping! xx
