SAM_3036a.jpg

I feel so ashamed to pull up this post soooo late. But oh well I have been busy playing the “Editor’s” role at Maazu.com Anyways, so we had this awesome back to back Indiblogger meet. But to start with I am presenting to you the DOVE INDIBLOGGER MEET. Held at The Park, Connaught Place. The event was not yet another boring brands promoting their new launches. But rather a more interactive, informative and fun filled session. Can anyone ask for a better deal than that? When me, Bharti from CrazypopLock, Awungshi from drpoisonivy andAnushri from anushrisaxena reached the venue, the event had just started. The first few bloggers who reached the venue got the chance to introduce themselves under the category 60 SECONDS TO FAME. On a personal note, I think it was an amazing idea as people were able to introduce themselves, their blog and what it is all about. We had more than 100 Delhi Women Bloggers. I had no clue the bloggers number is so huge in Delhi itself. We had a gala time knowing each other. Delhi bloggers enjoying the event. We were in for a surprise guest “Shivani Tanksale” She was a fun person to listen to, as she talked about her hair problems, her personal take on this, how messy her hair becomes at times, how shes got to juggle up health, hygiene and work all together. Shivani Tanksale providing her hair experience. There were loads of live tweets coming up on big screens. I thought why not me. And that was the beginning of my TWEET MANIA :p My tweet been retweeted and responded by Dove! Thank you ^_^ We were even asked to scribble up ONE THING I WOULD LIKE TO GET RID OF on sticky paper and post it up on …

Well I was looking for a good face wash for myself, as Delhi dust and humidity keeps my facial skin dirty, greasy and acne prone. Grrr Ofcourse there are many good face wash options to chose from. But I settled with something I didnt expect to find and buy either :p (You see the power of online shopping?) Live Cell Cleanser Complete by Living Proof! For the record, I ordered this product around 10:30 in the morning, before stepping out for my meetings. In the eve around 6 when I returned back home, my mom told me you have received a parcel. And I was like 😮 OMG!! Their service is so super duper fast. Well maybe because they reside in the NCR, but still. I was absolutely impressed. Although I did receive around 4 calls throughout the day from various customer care executives of Jabong inquiring about my product, confirming my product, taking a survey and what not. Phew! But oh well, the delivery was super fast 😀 The product says : Beautiful skin begins with healthy …

While wandering the high street of DLF Select City Saket, I was taken over to a shop in one corner, which to me seemed like yet another unknown cosmetics brand. But when I entered the premises, I thought I had entered paradise.I was in Crabtree and Evelyn Store, DLF Select City, Saket. Well, to be pretty honest, I had never heard about this brand, until now. I was awestruck by the soothing color splashes on delicately crafted collection, the infusion of thousands of perfumes, all providing a deep spa transit for my nostrils, and when I actually tried their hand care range, I was in love with my hands. (Like love at first sight) :p What the company says ? Founded in 1972 by Cyrus Harvey, Crabtree & Evelyn has evolved from a small, family-run business – specializing in fine soaps from around the world – to an international company, well known and respected for its original fragrances, luxurious toiletries, gourmet foods – and gifts for those who enjoy a sophisticated lifestyle.

The products are absolutely amazing. The first use only makes you feel and see the difference.
