First ever Play Date with Dove


Every woman is always a princess for her father. We get all respect, love in other relations, but no other relation can give us the feeling of princess….. But I was wrong…Dove and Indiblogger has given us a royal treatment which is just unforgettable. I am here with lot of memories of this grand Only ladies meet.

5This was my second meet at JW MARRIOTT, MUMBAI. I was so excited. Our dress code was “Any thing but White” I was confused with what to wear – white top with jeans or traditional salwar kurti. I was not satisfied with my white kurti, so purchased a new one. However finally I wore the white salwar with blue embroidery. When I entered the venue, all blogger girls and ladies were looking stunning with white outfits!

3I joined my friend Vasudha, Vinita and Anu. After registration we have given band, badge and map showing where we have to go to attend various activities. My band was of green color and my team code was four. Before the program start, we were offered high tea. I could stop myself by taking a snap of delicious cupcakes, mouthwatering pastries. However, I preferred to taste the yummy pani puri.

4When the program started, Anup was too good as usual. He handed over the charge to Dove host. And the fun started. We formed our groups quickly, mine was group number four and it is indicated on our bands given to us. Since we were ten in one team, we formed 2 circles of 5 each. I was in outer circle. We performed various moves by moving clockwise and anticlockwise with the music played. Each time we will be standing in front of new group member and we started off getting to know each other. What I loved most was the Zumba! Since I recently joined Aerobics, I was enjoying each and every move from bottom of my heart.

2Then we headed towards the Puzzle Mania. We were in Ballroom to play with the ball, where 3 team mates picked the dove balls and two team mates have to catch it from the given distance. We did excellent job by catching 285 dove balls in ten minutes, but missed the prize! Then second activity was of solving the jigsaw puzzle. We enjoyed our third challenge of hair styling. We have to experiment with our partner’s hair, Dove helped to take care of all kind of hair, curly, wavy, straight….

???????????????????????????????And then we entered the Dove Salon which was the most awaiting moment for us. Dove hair experts were just there, to do any hairstyle we ask. My hairs are wavy, so I decided to straighten my hair. And it was awesome…..I immediately changed my fb and whatsapp dp with my new look. You will not believe it, but I received lot comments saying it is too good. Everyone is asking the reason of my makeover. I have no words to thank Dove and Indiblogger for giving me a celebrity look.

Dove also handed over a mind blowing Goodies including Philips hair straightener, Dove Intense Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. I loved the cutest Dove hair pin.

???????????????????????????????We had dinner after the bartender activity at pool side. By the time dance floor was set for us. But now, I was worried about how I will reach home. But to my surprise, Indiblogger had arranged a cab for us who were staying far away from the location. I am so thankful to Dove and Indiblogger that they have taken so much care of us. We were dropped at door steps very carefully. I have never ever felt so secured when I attend any late events. I was feeling like a princess.

The secret of – Under the sun without umbrella


This is all about my first indiblogger meet. The topic was so tempting- Anything under the sun! Yes.. all about our skin protection in summer. I was so excited to attend this meet at JW Marriott, Mumbai. This meet was arranged by Neutrogena , wonderful brand that helps to make skin healthy.

registered
When I reached the venue, I just forgot that I am new here as lots of smiling face welcomed me. I met Varsha, Corinne, Zeenat , Anu and Aparna. We all entered the huge hall where we were asked to register. I do not how, but my name was rejected. I was shocked, since I was attending it for first time. However the indi-team helped me and it was successful.

yellow theme

The theme was ‘Anything under the sun! And yes I could feel it with yellow umbrellas, yellow balls and various yellow shades everywhere. Then team member gave a cute yellow cocktail umbrella and asked to write our name (which was the part of fun task we enjoyed later) Here, how my friend tested the Fine fairness deep whitening mask.  I know how it feels fresh after using it, as I am using it for last few months.newfrdz

Then we had lot of fun with various fun tasks like creating a group, naming ceremony of group, making anthem for group and defending  the Balls with Umbrellas.  I also enjoyed  new dance form – Harlem Shake. But …Sorry, unable to upload video right now! Here is the funny moment …. guessthebuddy
After high tea, actress and blogger Tara Sharma  arrived with yellow dress. She shared her experience how she feels as a actor, mother, TV host and a blogger.

Dr. Parekh made us aware about various facts regarding using the right type of sunscreen. The demo regarding how UV rays affect on our skin was eye opener. I was amazed to know about advanced Helioplex formula of Neutrogena UltraSheer. Helioplex formula works against skin darkening, spots, fine line , dryness and early aging. Don’t believe it ? Here is the proof.

My sis said that if I will go out with my son, People will think that we are siblings.
Now, I am free to go for swimming under the sun with my Neutrogena products.

Yo Yo braids with DO DO ( Dove Dove )


Braids! Everyone was staring at my braids and I was feeling as if I am going to school again. You must be thinking – Oh! Late 80’s story again! Come on! It happened with me recently and you can also experience the same feeling with your beautiful braids with Beautiful ends.

Here is my short story of my beautiful braids! During my childhood I never cared about my hair. My mother took all the efforts of applying oil, massaging and giving them bath at proper interval. I use to wear two simple braids in school days, totally unaware about any style. My mother use to tie a ribbon at the end of braids and then tie it at the upper end of the braid. This was the style of hair those days. I mean, even school has rules regarding it. In my school, we were supposed to wear a red ribbon.

Then I entered the college with single braid and with my own style of caring my hair. I used to take care of my hair and never listen to mummy. I was having different braid style those days. I used to start my braid at shoulder level and not from the scalp & tie a rubber band leaving around 2 inch hair free at the end. I still remember that I use to roll the hair so that I can hide my split hair. I always use to wonder, why I am having hair fall and spilt hair. And I even found my mother smiling with no suggestions. May be she knew it, that one day I am going to realize all that care she has taken for my hair.

When I realized my hair problem, I started using herbs for my hair. I use to mix Brahmi, Kachur Sugandhi, Maaka, Jaswand (Hhibiscus) and Amala ( all in powder form). To make paste, I use to add Aloe Vera jel or Jaswand Jel or sometimes water. All these powders were available in Herb shops. Then I used to leave this mixture for one hour on scalp. Meanwhile I could complete my dinner prep, pressing clothes or any other house work. Since we cannot see the results immediately, I kept on following the process for years. As per my mother in law’s observation, I had never taken care of my skin. I never used cosmetics or even face powder. However, I had spent lot of time and money for my hair.

DOVEhairfall_rescue_system_maskAnd then I met an Angel- my friend – Shilpa. She suggested me this magic of “Dove split end Rescue system ”! The amazing thing with this magic Deep Repair Treatment Mask is that I could see the result in one month. I just have to massage the scalp with Dove hair mask  and rinse after 3 minutes. At last, I don’t have to mix all those herbs and wait for one hour. And even don’t have to wait for years to see the results.

I am just with my beautiful braids with Beautiful ends!
