I Saved At-least Rs.1500 on Sweaters By Choosing A Roadside Seller With No Store!

Sweaters From A Roadside Seller

I don't know what to call them - a hawker, seller or anything else because they don't have stores. They just hang the stuff on the walls and hangers. But the stuff is good (I intend to add more ooooos) where I shopped these sweaters from. 

This place is near Mahagun Metro Mall, Vaishali. There are two guys with sweaters and other stuff, just like you'd find in Sarojini Nagar. But it takes less time to find what you need and most of the times you will find something what you like because they keep selected, clean fresh pieces. Plus these sweaters are warm!

Considering the sale season and possible 50% off deal that i could have availed in a store, I couldn't have saved as much as I did by not buying these in a mall/store.

I choose to thrift shop those items which I know are not being bought with an intention of dragging them from a season to another. They might choose to accompany in next season but they might not as well and I know if I bought same stuff from a brand they would cost me a bomb.

Four pieces I chose were - a fuchsia pink sweater with button details in back, a chunky knit in beige (my favorite), a color-block sweater in brown and aqua color with elbow patches and a cropped black jacket with shoulder and pocket details. All for Rs.150 each

Grey Denims For Baby Girl and Mother From MAX Fashions

I recently bought these two pairs of grey denims from MAX Fashions. My love for MAX fashions keeps growing day by day because I am getting affordable, stylish pieces in less with a great quality of fabric. MAX Fashions uses the fabrics which rarely fades or lose its shine (I am using rarely because it might do so in future or for anybody else so it is good to be politically correct. But trust me I haven't experienced fading, shredding at all!) Women grey denim - Rs.790 and kids grey denim with flower print - Rs.450.

Do you buy anything from roadside hawkers/sellers without store? If yes, what was your last purchase and where? or you are a brand conscious person and prefer visiting malls?

Will This New Shapoo and Conditioner Range be The One That Brings Back Life in My Hair?

BEAUTY

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

Why This Post?

Garnier Fructis has come up with a new range "Triple Nutrition" with Coconut, Almond and Olive oil that claims to make scalp, lengths and tips healthy. If you would read Hair Care posts on SSU, you'd know that Fructis is one brand that I love when it comes to shampoos and conditioners, so, I got excited when I saw the advert and came to know about this new range. Right on time, I got contacted by Garnier team to test Triple Nutriotion Range and see how it works.

My Hair Story

My hair texture is wonderful, its silky and soft with soft waves at the end and I a thankful to my mom for this. She still has jet black hair with one or two grey hair at the age of 54+ years. No kidding!

A couple of years ago, my hair used to shine and I did not lose as much hair as I do now, plus they get limp in a day due to oily scalp. Above all, because of trying out new range every 2 months has also taken its toll. Every time I wash my hair, I see tons of hair clumps falling and floating on the floor. So, this pretty much it about my hair-woes. 

Like anybody else, I am in search of  that perfect shampoo and conditioner which just revives and gives a life to my hair. I want to settle down to that one perfect range. 

First Impression of Garnier Triple Nutrition Range

The packaging and fragrance have to be the same as any other Garnier Fructis shampoos and conditioners (there is a slight plus and minus in the intensity of scent but the base/note of the scent remains the same) .

The texture of the shampoo is runny, creamy and a little pale while conditioner is thick and creamy.


Unique Selling Point

It has goodness of three oils that I have been using for quite long - coconut oil, olive oil and almond oil.  Nothing can beat these oils ever!


But is "Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition" that one range?

Although it claims to have the goodness of these oils, only the span of 15 days and 30 days trial will tell if they are any different from other ranges. I wash my hair every alternate day because it gets oily and ugly. So, the thumb rules for the test would be -

1. Cleaner and healthier hair. Will my hair take more days to go back to their limp life?
2. It is a strengthening shampoo and conditioner range. Will it stop hair fall?
3. With every wash hair will look healthy and of-course become healthy. Will I get my hair-shine back?

Price of Garnier Triple Nutrition Range

Shampoo Rs.135 for 175ml
Conditioner Rs.135 for 175ml




For the shopaholic in You

Indeed, the review would be based on my test-drive and how I feel, you will definitely get a reason to purchase or pass this range. I know the fact how my reviews can add-up to somebody's buying choices. No matter how less/more it is as compared to your favourite range, I know how emotionally and financially it is frustrating to try out something new! So, it has strengthened a sense of responsibility in me.

These days, I have also become more alert about the ingredients of any product, so you'd know if this range contains any ingredient that should /may worry you.  While I may like this range, to me its very important to know if you would get something new and useful in case you invest your money in it.




I would love to know if you have already used this range and how you found it? Will you buy it again or recommend it to others?

For the shopaholic in You

Lava has established its feet in Indian market by now and it is getting popular among college goers, extra phone keepers, housewives and those who love to keep stylish phone but on-budget.

I remember, how crazily I used to be in favour of Nokia phones and the Samsung came in the market with Note. I never relied Samsung phones but we bought it back in 2011 when it was just launched. I did not know that this phone will accompany me till 2015. I still have it and do not feel like buying a new phone.

My story was to tell everyone that if we can, we should give a shot to new launches like this. And if the price is this affordable,we must!
