The Reliance Digital Experience

Hello Everyone!!!

Indiblogger recently came up with a new initiative - The Reliance Digital Experience, in association  with  Reliance Digital .

The event required us to choose a store as per our convenience. After that an Indiblogger invite would be sent in our mail box that we had to flash at the selected store for the experience.


I quickly chose the Mulund store which is a 20 minutes walk from my place. And no I won't go there walking 20 minutes on a  rainy weekend :P.

My Experience :

Venue:  I visited the Reliance Digital Store, Mulund (W) on 22nd June 2013 at 13:35 with a friend who is in search of a new phone. 


As soon as we reached the store I flashed my Indiblogger invite. They asked me to make an entry in the visitors register and hand over the copy of invite. After completing the formalities I entered the store where I was welcomed by one of the staff members. He asked me to wait till he sends out a representative.  I met few fellow bloggers who were waiting too. Also a few others who had arrived earlier were already checking out the store with the SA. He came back after few minutes and told me that being a weekend, the staff was busy attending others. So he requested me to wait till someone is free or go around the store and if there is anything I want to know I can ask him or the other staff members. I decided to go around the store with my friend.

Reliance Digital, Mulund(W)

The store is quite spacious and spread over a very large area. The products are arranged according to their categories like  - Mobile phones, Laptops, T.V, Audio, Camera, Kitchen Appliances, Home Appliances,  Gaming, etc. Each category has many products from various local as well as international brands. This makes it very easy to compare. Also the M.R.P. as well as the NEW Reliance price are mentioned for every product.


There is a dedicated staff for each category. The staff is knowledgeable, polite and helpful. We checked out few cellphones that my friend had zeroed down. When we asked about a certain feature, they gave us a very detailed demonstration and also asked us to try it out.

After that we moved on to checkout some cameras. If you had read my previous post, you may know that  my old camera is no more and hence I am looking forward to buy a new one. So we asked the SA to show us a few cameras. She asked me about the usage, how much I am willing to spend, etc. and then showed me a few cameras that fit into my budget. 

Also there are many exciting offers going on and they are displayed very next the products.


One of the interesting feature at the store are the Experience Pillars. These pillars help the customers to touch, use and explore various products before buying  There are various experience pillar all over the store for Mobile Phones, Laptops, etc. These pillar have various products belonging to a particular categories. Also the product specifications and a comparison chart are displayed on these pillars to help the customers choose the best. 

Experience Pillars.

Another feature to look out for is the Home Theatre Engagement Zone. It is a dedicated area where you can experience the home theatre systems like in the comfort of your own house. Similarly there  is also a Play Station Zone , a Smart TV section, etc. where you get to use the products and then buy.

Home Theatre Engagement Zone

Also they have an after Sales service and Support known as ResQ which helps you in product installation, break down or maintenance. The ResQ personnel shall personally visit, rectify and provide you with a step-by-step guidance for maintenance till the life cycle of the product. For more information on this visit the store

They have various payment options to choose from like- Credit Card, E.M.I, etc to suit everyone's need. Also, Gift Cards in various denominations are available at the store which are redeemable across the country. So next time you cannot decide what to gift your geek friends, this is surely a great option.

With this I was done with the store tour. It took me approximately 1 hour 15 minutes to go around the complete store. After this Nidhi, who was there to monitor this activity took my video about the entire experience. The Reliance Digital Experience was great.

Last Words:

Reliance Digital is a One stop shop for all your gadgets and appliances needs. Experience the latest technology before buying, exciting discounts, various payment options and much more - all this under one roof, what more do you want?  Do checkout the Store. Leaving you with a cute picture displayed next to their Speakers section. Isn't it cute? ^_^  There were many more like this one.

Go Back in Time and Thank Some One

Hello Everyone!!!

If you could go back in time and thank some one, who would that be? L'Oreal Paris asked this question to people from different walks of life and here's what they had to say. Checkout the video.

Here is what L'Oreal Paris has to say :

Every shampoo today speaks about strong hair, but what really matters is the roots that make the hair strong. Only strong roots can give you strong and healthy hair. L’Oreal Paris Fall Repair 3X is one such shampoo that takes care of your roots. 
Fall Repair 3X is an Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo that delivers a triple anti-hair fall action. It nourishes the hair root, restructures hair fibre and helps the hair grow stronger from root to tip. Only Fall Repair 3X is enriched with Arginine Essence. Arginine is an essential amino acid that is vital for hair’s constitution. It is known for nourishing the scalp to improve micro-circulation.
Stronger the roots, lesser the hair fall.

'Stay Rooted' is all about remembering your roots and knowing that whatever you are today is because of your roots. It's about taking time out to thank and appreciate people, things, places etc from your past that have made you "You".

There are so many people who have been by my side always - Family, friend, teachers to name a few. I want thank them all for being there for me always. Especially my MOTHER. She has been my support system, guide, friend and everything I wanted. Whatever I am today is mainly because of her.
If you are reading this do tell me in the comments below about that special person you would like to thank if you had a chance to go back in time. I would love to read it.

Sunday, 23 June 2013 Haul

Hello Everyone!!!!

This post has been lying in my drafts for a while now. Recently offered me Rs.1000 /-  voucher to shop for beauty products. What do you think I did?? Ofcourse I said yes!!! Who says no to shopping. 

About : is a one stop shop for all your fashion and lifestyle needs. Being India's largest e-commerce store for fashion and lifestyle products, aims at providing a hassle free and enjoyable shopping experience to shoppers across the country with the widest range of brands and products on its portal. The brand is making a conscious effort to bring the power of fashion to shoppers with an array of the latest and trendiest products available in the country.'s value proposition revolves around giving consumers the power and ease of purchasing fashion and lifestyle products online. Offerings such as the largest in-season product catalogue, 100% authentic products, cash on delivery, EMI facility and 30 day return policy make, the preferred shopping destination in the country. To make online shopping easier for you, a dedicated customer connect team is on standby to answer your queries 24x7.

My Experience:

This was the first time I was shopping with so I had to create a new account. It hardly takes 5 minutes to sign up. Don't want to do that??? You can also opt for Connect with Facebook option.

The site is easy to browse and you can narrow your searches category, brand, price, color, etc.

They have just started with the Beauty and Cosmetics so you may not find all the products but they are adding new things to their inventory.

They offer free shipping on orders above Rs. 999 /- which is not bad. If less than that you have to pay a flat shipping fee of Rs. 79/-

I placed my order on 19 May at 19:53 ( now you know I am really running late with my posts :P). My order was shipped on 20 May 00:14 (yes at night!!! don't they sleep??) and I received it on 21 May in the afternoon. That was super fast!!!

They offer various payment options - COD ( for orders between Rs. 299/- to Rs 20000/- for most of the addresses) , Credit Card, Debit Card, Net Banking and E.M.I. (Credit Card).

Also when placing an order with them don't forget to checkout the coupon code. The best part is you don't have to search for them. You can find them in My Myntra Coupons when you login.

Now let me quickly show you what I ordered.

All the products came together packed in a white Myntra bag.

Inside the bag all the products were placed in these sturdy boxes. I loved these ones as they can be reused to store something.

The products were bubble wrapped twice and hence reached me safe without any damage.

And here is what I ordered.
  1. VLCC Cacti & Litchi facewash.
  2. VLCC Frangipani & Oatmeal scrub.
  3. VLCC Strawberry & Lily peel off mask.
  4. Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm
  5. Maybelline Dream Touch Blush.
  6. Posnds BB cream.
I was looking for facewash meant for dry skin so I ordered the VLCC products.
Since the Maybelline Dream Touch Blush comes in a glass pot packaging it was placed inside yet another cardboard box.

A closer look to all the products.

I am very impressed with and am surely going to shop with them again. Super fast shipping, very good packaging and discount coupons in your shopping bag - What more do you want? I just wish they add more products to their beauty and cosmetics collection.
Will try to review these products soon.
I am also eyeing  their apparels, shoes and bags :D

Also you can follow on Facebook and Twitter to stay updated about the offers and sale.

P.S. I know the pictures are not very good.The camera is now dead (R.I.P.) and these are the last pictures I clicked with it. I ll now have to buy a new one.

* I was provided with a voucher for review but the reviews are 100% honest.

WeChat, the new way to connect

Hello Everyone!!!

Time:  12:30 a.m.

I was in my room. Like every other day. Chatting with my friends on WeChat. The phone vibrating continuously with notifications.
I am busy chatting. Reading, smiling and then replying. I suddenly see Mummy standing in front of me. Staring at me. She looks a bit upset. Donno why ?? The phone vibrates again. I look down to read the chat message. Simultaneously the conversion with Mummy goes on.

Me: What happened Mummy? You want something?

Mummy: No

Me: ( still typing a reply) Then why are you still awake?

Mummy: What are you doing?

Me:  Nothing much. Just chatting with my friends.

Mummy: Look at the time. Its 12:30 and you are still chatting. And then you won't wake up in the morning and keep asking for endless " 5 minutes more please " Go to sleep right now.

Me: Just 10 more minutes please. And its Saturday tomorrow. No lectures.

Mummy: No 10 minutes. Keep that phone aside and go to sleep. RIGHT NOW!!!

Me: But...

Mummy: No if and but. Put it aside and go to sleep. Or else give it to me.

Give her the phone. NOOOO.....I am about to tuck it under the pillow.

Mummy: Not under the pillow, keep it on the side table.

She walks out muttering - These kids now a days. Even 24 hrs is not enough for them........

It was a tiring day. Lectures, Practicals, Submission all day followed by traffic jam thanks to the Mumbai monsoon. All tired I was soon asleep.
