Shine bright like a diamond

First of all if you've come here thinking the post is going to be about Rihanna's latest number: Diamonds; then you are wrong. Obviously I've talked about it in one of my past Music Monday posts but this post definitely ain't about it. 

However this post is definitely sparkly, shiny and all about YOU. 

I was recently invited to hang out at the You Shine store in Bangalore. I remember You Shine when there was this period on twitter when they had just started off and everyone loved them and were talking about their trendy pieces at affordable prices. Often these days it is hard to find trendy jewelry and accessories at prices that won't damage your pocket too much. You Shine comes into picture at this point. With a vast collection and an unbelievable variety they have spot on accessories that are constantly changing with trends. 

You Shine is the brainchild of Monika Pal Sood and Ashish Sood, they not only have stores all over the country but also operate from an online portal for those who wish to be treated luxuriously with amazing collections at their doorstep. With 4 stores in Delhi, and a store each in Karnataka and Maharashtra they are growing extremely fast. 

Here's a picture tale of my visit to the YouShine store in Bangalore. 


You can see how the display was all 'shining'.


Galore, galore, accessories, bags and what not galore! Isn't this what paradise is supposed to look like?


Earrings for various occasions, from studs to danglers. 


Necklaces and statement pieces were in plenty and I literally had to hunt for what I liked because everything was so pretty.



Colour is something You Shine definitely doesn't lack! What a visual treat! 


This tasseled bag was a beauty, I couldn't stop holding it and running around. Not to forget the envelope slings. So preeettty.


You gaiiiz know my compulsive obsession with owls? Well if not here's me telling you. I had to capture all the owls at the store. What a delight! 

The staff at the store were extremely helpful and made looking around a lot more easier for me. Mom was eyeing a few pieces too and we both definitely have a mental list of what we are going to buy the next time we head there. 

Why I love You Shine?
Affordability 
Store+Online Store makes life easier
Amazing collection of trendy pieces
Great staff
Variety of each kind to choose from

What I think would make 'You Shine' sparkle a little more?
I noticed a majority of the rings at the store weren't adjustable, while a few were; I wish all of them were. People with chubby fingers like me love rings too you know? 

Store rating: Thumbs up! 

Have YOU SHINE(D) yet?

You want to shine?: You Shine
