Online Shopping Pros & Cons

 There is a lot of debate about whether it’s a good idea to buy clothes and other fashion items online. On the one hand, you can usually get better prices, but you don’t get to see things up close and try them on, so there are risks. There are plenty of horror stories about people ordering things and finding that they are nothing like the pictures when they arrive. Some things, like tailored suits or fitted dresses, also need to be tried on before you buy to make sure that the fit is right. However, there are some things that you should always get online because they’re just so much cheaper. These are the fashion items that you should always buy online.

Handbags

If you like buying designer handbags, you should always head online. Buying from a high street store will always cost you over the odds and even though designer stuff will always be expensive, you can save a lot of money online. There are also some great designer consignment sites where you can buy used handbags at a huge discount. In some cases, you can save up to 70% on a high end designer bag and the condition will still be great. There’s no need to worry about trying bags on so getting them online is always the best choice.

Glasses

If you need glasses, you already know how expensive they can be. When you go into a high street optician, it feels like even the cheapest options are still way overpriced but what can you do? You need your glasses to see so you just have to bite the bullet and pay the price. However, there are some great sites online where you can get the exact same glasses for much cheaper prices. You also get a much bigger range when you shop online, so you’ll save a lot of money and get a better pair of glasses. All you need to do is take your prescription from the optician and head online and you can get a great pair of designer glasses without the big price tag.

T-Shirts

The fit on a t-shirt is pretty much the same wherever you decide to get it from, so there’s no need to buy overpriced ones from high street shops. As long as you are still buying quality ones that are well made, you should be fine and you will save a lot of money. Once you find a retailer that you like, you can make even bigger savings if you buy in bulk.


You should always get these items online because they’re just so much cheaper. However, you do need to be careful when shopping online because there are a lot of scammers out there, especially if you are looking for designer items. If you are using a new site, always check the reviews and do a bit of online research, you’ll soon find out whether they are legitimate or not. You should also pay with secure methods, like Paypal, instead of putting your credit card details in.

Hair Keratin treatment - Is it worthy or not?

I have suffered all my life with my curly , frizzy hair and I got to try the Brazilian  Keratin Treatment last December, 2019. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life although it is not a permanent treatment. 

I did the Keratin treatment from a salon called Zulu Style which is located in Little India,Singapore. I had read sufficient reviews to convince myself of the treatment, of the place & finally I went ahead.

The treatment done was Advanced Keratin treatment since my hair was extremely frizzy & curly. The entire process took about 4 hours and the products used were absolutely chemical free. The end result was magical and they said my hair would turn a bit wavy after the first wash and not remain very straight unlike straightening treatment. The smell of the Brazilian Keratin was not very great and there were several rounds of treatment like a hair wash, followed by application of keratin, then straightening the hair using an iron, then again washing and followed by a serum.
