INDIA ONLINE SHOPPING REVIEW: NYKAA, INDYA AND H&M. After last week’s intense post covid lockdown experience of going out in Bangalore for the first time, I feel online shopping should be the main way to get the economy going again. So instead of malls and markets, in this video I’m reviewing 3 India online shopping experiences. The first online shopping review is of the famous beauty store Nykaa. If you live in India you must have heard of Nykaa because their marketing is so extremely aggressive. There’s no way you can miss Nykaa. The second online shopping review is of one of my favourite ethnic wear brands Indya. I’ve loved and bought Indya for a few years now but never explained the process or did an India online shopping review. It’s time to change that. The last India online shopping review is of H&M. An international brand which turns out is not so international after all. I hope you enjoy this India online shopping review and let me know if I should make more videos like this.

Q Where are you from?
A I am born in former Yugoslavia. Mom is Serbian, Dad is Bosnian. During the ’90’s war we came to the Netherlands and I got Dutch nationality. I’ve lived in Amsterdam for 8 years but lost my heart to India. Since 2018 I’m based in Bangalore. See this video for my refugee story:

Q (Why) Are you vegetarian?
A I’m vegetarian but not strict. I don’t eat any meat, fish, cooked/boiled or fried eggs. I gradually became a vegetarian over the course of 15 years because I disliked the taste of meat more and more. After doing a yoga teacher training in 2015 I also quit fish and the eggs. No matter my food preferences I have no issues with other people not being vegetarian. I don’t judge others and kind of expect the same favor from others concerning my own food preferences. It makes for a more friendly world 🙂

Q Why do you usually travel alone?
A Because my friends have jobs with limited holidays, kids and partners. Also I really like exploring on my own.

Q Why do you love India so much?
A Watch this video: and this one:

Q How do you work together with brands?
A Watch this video with the complete and honest truth about travel vlogging:

    Hi Ivana,
    Super leuke vlog weer! Wil zeker vaker shoplogs zien. Ik heb een vraagje. Een tijdje geleden liet je weten ook erg enthousiast te zijn over Indiase kleding. Volgens mij ging het over een mix van westerse en Indiase kleding. Ik ben de naam kwijt. Ik hoop dat je nog weet waar ik het over heb.

    Ivana, your best friend is the queen of dutch beauty community! Ik denk dat Masha wel wat make-up paletten heeft liggen dat ze niet gebruikt en mee kan experimenteren. Ik woon zelf België en vind de online service van H&M top hier.
