Last Sunday I was in Coorg to attend a wedding and one of my friends had come down from the US to attend it to. We are busy getting ready on Sunday morning and suddenly she stops putting her eyeliner, looks at me and says “ Hey Krupa, isn’t today Mother’s day?”. First of all I am sleep deprived and second of all, besides birthdays I don’t keep track of the other days. I paused my blush application and looked at her with a blank expression and said “really?”. It was at this moment that my mom called and I wished her. What an #epicfail. Turns out that 10th is Mother’s day, and I am glad I didn’t miss being with my mom on that day. We don’t have any major plans, but atleast we will take her out for a while. Now usually my mom never shops for herself. I mean like NEVER. If you open her wardrobe, she will look at a sari and say “ my brother gave this for his second child’s first birthday” or “my aunt gave this for her brother-in-law’s daughter’s wedding”, so clearly most of her saris have been gifts. When it comes to salwars, any salwar she owns has been bought by my dad for either an anniversary or a birthday. (P.S. My dad has great taste in clothes)
As a fan of online shopping (you guys have seen my oh-so-many hauls), I find myself gravitate towards Jabong.com a lot. The kurtas there fit my mom so well. Since my mom is really fair, I love how she looks in maroon and black. Here are some salwar sets that I think would look amazing on my mom.
Here is a pic of my mom and me when I was doing my navrathri outfits last year.
So what are you doing for Mother’s Day? I have something that could make it a little extra special. You could win a voucher for 500INR to shop from Jabong.com for your mother. All you have to do is follow me on Twitter because this will be a Twitter contest.
Here are the rules and regulations.
- The contest will be held on 9th May from 10am to 8pm. Entries before or after this time will not be counted as valid entries.
- There will be one simple question put up on my Twitter account. All you have to do is tweet your answers and make sure you tag both IshtyleAwhile and Jabong.com in your answer.
- The cutest answers will win a gift voucher from Jabong.com. The profiles will be verified to make sure that the participant isn't following just for the contest time. Nobody likes people who follow and then unfollow after winning a prize.
- Multiple entries are allowed. You can tweet me all day!!
- There will be two winners and each will get a 500INR gift voucher from Jabong.
- I will announce the winners on Twitter on 10th May.
I am so excited to announcing this contest in collaboration with Jabong.com. The gift vouchers will be sponsored by Jabong. So tune into Twitter on 9th May at 10am.
Yaay!! See you guys on Twitter on 9th May. Invite your friends and even your mom!
