Fun online

My latest fun online is the online shopping sites, I have to admit, I absolutely admire some of them.  Certain sites are so inviting and so charming, for example I just love Jabong.com , every time I get a mailer from them I just can not resist myself from clicking on the pictures and entering the site, the picture clarity is amazing, I especially love the jewelry and shoes collection, once you reach their site , it is a huge task to leave without ordering something , you are so tempted to click and order, this shows the triumph of an online store, that it tempts you to such an extent that you have to succumb to the temptations !! Even the subject line of their ad mailers is eye catching and coaxing enough to make you enter the world of beauty, fashion and fun of online shopping.

A must mention is the ‘closet label.com’ boasting of celebrities such as Malaika  khan, Susanne and Bipasha Basu, all three of them have different online stores but they advertise under one umbrella , it gives the customers the comfort of so mancy choices under one roof . Malaika, true to her image of style diva has some amazing stuff to offer in terms of clothes, so is Bipasha, her online store reflects her personality and her choice in terms of fashion. For me what took the cake is Susannes’ homelabel.com’, it was a visual treat with choices of beautiful wire baskets, distressed jewellery box, or a vintage  clock, beautifully patterned bed sheets, runners , pots and pans looking gracious and inviting.

I also like the look of Pepperfry, it is another site which makes you browse and browse and find some amazing looking kitchen tools and children’s bedsheet or some ethnic looking lamp or quaint looking artefacts.

This is not a promotional article, this is just about what I felt while browsing through these online stores and I genuinely like these for all that I have expressed above, I wanted all of you my readers, my blog friends to take a look at these and may be buy some beautiful stuff … and remember this post of mine when you keep admiring these beauties adorning your home or wardrobe.

A gentle reminder for you and me..........

I ran into a stranger as he passed by,
"Oh excuse me please" was my reply.

He said, "Please excuse me too;
I wasn't watching for you."

We were very polite, this stranger and I.
We went on our way and we said goodbye.

But at home a different story is told,
How we treat our loved ones, young and old.

Later that day, cooking the evening meal,
My son stood beside me very still.

When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.
"Move out of the way”, I said with a frown.

He walked away, his little heart broken.
I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken.

While I lay awake in bed,
God's still small voice came to me and said,

"While dealing with a stranger, common courtesy you use,
but the family you love, you seem to abuse.

Go and look on the kitchen floor,
You'll find some flowers there by the door.

Those are the flowers he brought for you.
He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.

He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise,
you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes."

By this time, I felt very small,
And now my tears began to fall.

I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
"Wake up, little one, wake up," I said.

"Are these the flowers you picked for me?"
He smiled, "I found 'em, out by the tree.

I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.
I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue."

I said, "Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today;
I shouldn't have yelled at you that way."

He said, "Oh, Mom, that's okay.
I love you anyway."

I said, "Son, I love you too,
and I do like the flowers, especially the blue”.
