Bloggers meet is not just another event, but a place where all lovely bloggers meet under one roof, chit chat, pamper themselves, spread a word about their blogs and do blog gossip. ^_^
So when I got an invite from Akshita’s Blogathon team I was overwhelmed and excited to attend
Avon’s Blogger Meet
Lazy Saturday Afternoon turned out to be an adventurous trip for many, because around the time everyone got out to reach Avon’s Connaught Place Office, god showered us with heavy rainfall.
But we girls surely know how to groove a party. 😉
I was the first one to reach the venue. There were two separate counters to pamper ourselves with Avon products.
This lady did my makeover, and was absolutely flexible to understand and work on my requirements, unlike those who just do what they want for makeover of a person.

Getting ready for her makeover, although she already had the best makeup on complimenting her.
Was greeting fellow blogger Srish while getting ready for her makeover.

A party is never complete without madness.
They provided us with super crazy props to try on and get some goofy photos clicked.
I still tried to stay sober, with due respect to my monochrome ensemble :p
Me, Awungshi and Nitika
Awungshi looks really cute ^_^
There was a message behind these crazy props.
Avon has recently launched special KIDS RANGE.

Tried competing with the grey shades of monsoon clouds :p

Apart from the crazy party, we also had a serious discussion about AVON INDIA.

Nowhere is that commitment more evident than in Avon’s philanthropic efforts.
