You are checking your mail. A little box on the corner (the ad, of course) distracts you! How often do you click on it? I get distracted easily :( but it’s not always that I click on one. This time I did and I’m glad I got distracted.

Maybe you’ve heard of them. But it was new for me. Meet the online store Joss & Main.  A few picks I feel in love with.

Good evening folks! Regular readers of Friday Shopping, you probably thought there was not going to be a post today, didn’t you! Well, you were almost right! I’ve just settled on the couch after a long day; dinner is done. But I owe it to you guys, so here I am with the picks I had in mind. It’s a li’l too early to think of lights and candles, isn’t it? Diwali is a good two months away. But what the heck..I just saw a sign board that read, ‘”Do more of what makes you happy”.  So candles are going…

Have you heard of The Jute Shop? I hadn’t until a saw a small outlet at a mall close by to where we ere staying in Ahmedabad. I didn’t like just one, but a couple of them. Constrained by space, I didn’t buy any taking solace in the fact that they have a online store which I check right away and it seemed to have much more choices than that-tucked-under-staircase one. And mom has been asking for one. So here are my picks! Do I already hear clicks for the shopping cart? What are your picks? There will be…

1. You would love the airiness of this room and the lucky bamboo taking the center stage. 2. One of my favorite design bloggers, Holly of decor8 shared her biggest news yet. 3. Priya of Once upon a tea time is on my mind as I read this post on kilims in kitchen. Her love for kantha and kilims is no secret. 4. Because I love colors in every corner of the home. 5. Tomato tart with corn and zucchini.  My son once used to love tomatoes and now he hates it. He tells me to make peppers and tomatoes…

I spend a good part of evening before going to bed reading posts across blogs on my reader that range from Apartment Therapy to Counterparties and Quartz. Don’t you miss the search feature of Google Reader? Btw, the buzz is Reader was killed not because of declining readership but because no one wanted to run it – corporate politics! Anyways, there are some DIY/design posts I LOVE and would want to share with you all. Similarly, if there was something you liked you can leave a comment; and we would have our own weekend linkfest, what do you say? Shall…

Vandana shares her kitchen organizing tips today. There are no rules when it comes to the kitchen….whatever works to help you be more efficient rules. She says, “I’ve lined the drawer with a silver gift wrapper to give a  shiny finish and I’ve categorized and labelled items for easy access. Earlier, I stacked up items and it was quite difficult to get to the items at the bottom. Sometimes, the smaller items used to get lost in the entire pile, making me buy again, only to make way for duplicates.” On the ever growing grocery list, she adds, “also, I have…

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 results of one from the other is not astonishingly different. I hate to admit I have a whole basket of cleaning supplies ranging from Cif to Mr.Muscle bathroom cleaner and upholstery cleaner. And, that’s just…

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 a store and it was priced the same on Jabong. Now, it’s slashed by over 20%. The point is the Sale is for real, and it’s not one of those times when the prices…

Yay! The weekend is here and for a change, the sun is shining bright over Bangalore as of this minute. But it can change, you know :) So, I’m going to step out and make the most of this evening but before I do, here’s this week’s edition of Friday Shopping with some knick-knack picks. 1. Nic-nacker for Rs.500 from Forty Red Bangles 2. Chettinad potli basket for Rs.450 from Craftsvilla 3. Hand painted wine bottle for Rs. 450 by Scribbles on Craftsvilla (the kettles are great too) 4. Wooden wall shelf from PepperFry for Rs. 599 5. Wall cloth…
