Friday Shopping: cleanings agents to our rescue

Yesterday, I pinned a fun cleaning calendar on the dyh Facebook page. This got me thinking on all the cleaning supplies one needs at home. From a humble bleaching powder, acid and Harpic a decade ago, the cleaning supplies section in any store has grown multifold. You have tile cleaner, glass cleaner, stainless steel cleaner, this mop, that brush, microfibre cloth, kitchen sink cloth ..phew! The…



Friday shopping: assorted picks for kitchen, your skin and a shopping aid

Happy Friday folks! I really TGIF today! We are a li’l late for the Friday Shopping edition but I promise you it’ll be fun.

Do you think it’s raining sales everywhere – in shops, online stores? I know this Sale season every year is for real as people abstain from buying anything new/expensive.  Just a fortnight ago, I bought something from the new arrivals section from…



Friday Shopping: Eco-friendly picks under Rs.300

Good Morning! How are you all doing? I’m excited because the summer vacation starts officially from tomorrow, which, in turn, means a break from the morning rush and sticking to the clock. This week, I have put together an exciting range of products that we use in our everyday life from planters to masalas and makeup stuff;  the common string tying them together is that…



Friday Shopping: Aid to Artisans

Did you ever imagine that a tire can be recycled into a fruit basket, or that plastic bags can be re-purposed into eye-catching cosmetic bags? I stumbled upon an organization called Aid to Artisans that provides economic opportunities for artisan groups around the world. They promote economically deprived artisans with a gift for handmade traditions by connecting them to new markets.  Or, should I say…



Friday Shopping: 6 picks to set up your balcony garden (mostly under Rs.1000)

What would you need to set up a balcony garden from scratch? That’s the thought that crossed my mind as I was looking for some affordable railing planters before deciding on making my own. Iron brackets are so hard to come by, and even if they are available online, they are usually priced ridiculously high. Working on this theme, this week’s post centers around setting…



Friday shopping: lamps and lights under Rs.2,000

Hello everyone! How are you all doing? Looking forward to the weekend? The theme of this week’s shopping post is lights. No, it’s not Diwali yet but I’m feeling festive. I chanced upon India Circus’s fascinating collection of lamps and one thing led to another, and before I knew, there was this whole collection of lamps I fell in love with.  And, what better way…



Friday Shopping: Fabric picks under Rs.500 (mostly)

It’ 11:07 p.m. and I’ve just begun to compose the post;  not used to staying up late (my signal usually starts going down from 9:00 p.m.) But, it’s a Friday and I had to get the Friday Shopping picks post up which I thought would be a breeze considering I’ve been on it since early evening. Yep..trying to learn some Photoshopping tricks consumed a better…



Friday Shopping: 5 picks under Rs.1,000

I’m smelling the fragrance of Rajnigandha  and the sweetness of Lindt (in my head and note to husband: please get me a bunch this weekend). My friends fondly called him the florist for the amount of business he gave to the neighborhood flower lady. I need a vase first before the flowers freshen up my home which led me to this week’s picks.
