Shopping Challenge by

Hello Everyone!!!

If you are an online shopping maniac like me, I am sure you are familiar with 
Cashkaro is India's No.1 Cashback & Coupons website. With you can now EARN 
CASHBACK every time you shop with websites like Yatra, Jet, Flipkart,,, Expedia, Myntra, Jabong & many more.  Just go to first & then go to other websites from there. Shop normally & get cashback. When you have Rs 250 confirmed cashback, you can request it to be paid to your bank account via NEFT or request payment via cheque.

Now has come up with a challenge for the bloggers. They gave us two topics to select from-
1.      If you were given Rs 10,000 how would you spend it? How much would you save via and what will you do with that money saved?
2.      Shop via Cashkaro & share your experience. How did Cashkaro save you money and would you recommend Cashkaro to your friends?

I found the first topic very interesting and thought why not challenge myself to buy an entire outfit including clothes, footwear, accessories and makeup.  Also with Diwali so near, why not go for an ethnic outfit? So let’s get started. I’ll first try to fit a complete ethnic outfit in the given budget and at the end of this post tell you how much money I saved using and more importantly what I will do with it J

When it comes to online shopping I always prefer Myntra and Jabong as they have the latest collection, great discounts and a very good customer service.

Biba had recently launched their showstopper collection which I instantly fell in love with. Also for ethnic wear, Biba is my favorite brand as they have unique designs and fit really well. I don’t have to go for alterations most of the times J. I chose this beautiful black and red cotton suit set.  This dress was love at first sight.

I came across these pair of wedges by Metro browsing through Jabong’s footwear section. Aren’t these a perfect match for the suit set above?


The suit has a big golden border and prints so I didn't want to add too many accessories. So I chose a pair of long drop earrings in black and gold.


With too much of black in this outfit, I chose a red and gold toned clutch by Shree to break the monotone. It has ethnic print all over and the studded stone piece gives it a royal look.



I chose Maybelline Clear Glow Natural Bright Benefit Cream 03 for base makeup.

My favorite eyeconic kajal for creating a dramatic winged eye as well as on waterline.

A red lipstick by Maybelline Colorensational in Rubylicious Jewels Lipstick 630.

Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Waterproof Mascara to add some more drama to eyes J

And lastly nail polishes from Maybelline’s latest color show range in Downtown Red 216 and Blackout 220 to do a  simple nail art using these two.


 And here I am all ready for Diwali evening J


Now coming to how much I saved using

As of now is offering 6% cashback on anything bought through them from Jabong (check here)and Flat Rs. 180/-  cashback on Myntra (check here).  So let’s do the math now. I know everybody hates math but don't you wanna know how much money I saved??
