Fair & Lovely BB Cream Blogger's Meet


Fair & Lovely BB Cream Blogger's Meet

   Last month the pretty people from Fair & Lovely had organized a bloggers meet for a few ladies and I was one of the lucky ones who got to attend it. It was an extravagant affair lasting a couple of hours held at The Novotel facing the very famous Juhu beach.
   The event started with our emcee Freisha welcoming us all wholeheartedly and toasting the day that lied ahead of us with a round of sangria. Next came in Mr. Dushyanth Jayanty, Marketing Manager of Fair & Lovely at Hindustan Unilever Limited who introduced the new Fair & Lovely BB Cream to us with a small and compact speech. We were then paired into groups of two by a simple chit system and made to introduce each other by telling three unusual/quirky things about each other which served it's purpose of breaking the ice between all us girls.

   What followed next was a day full of fun and innovative games which were given a twist to appeal to the fashion, beauty and lifestyle bloggers in us. We gathered around in a big circle and played a glamorous version of passing the parcel with two rounds of "Passing the Tiara" followed by a few memory games. The first one had us naming things related to fashion and beauty from A till Z in sequential order until others got stuck while the other had us making a crazy story by adding a sentence each to the story. Then we had games which we played in groups of four. Each team had to pick up a name for themselves - We chose the name "Lovely Ladies" for ours. One with crossword puzzles where the team fastest to find the beauty related words won. The next where we were shown a basket full of beauty essentials for just ten seconds and had to jot the most number of things that we remembered the fastest to win. The third was named "What's in your Bag" where points were assigned according to stuff we carried with us that day which my team won that too all because of safety pins that one of my teammates had coincidentally bought on her way to the meet earlier that day! The last game of the day was the most intense of them all where we were supposed to jot down brand names for bags, shoes, cosmetics and perfumes much like the name, place, animal and thing we used to play in our school days. What made these games all the more fun was the fact that winners for each one of these were gratified with Shoppers Stop vouchers, delicious and tempting chocolates and more.

   In order to keep up our energy levels throughout the event, we were kept well fed right from the moment we entered the venue. Starting from sandwiches and our choice of beverage from amongst tea/coffee for a light breakfast to the lavish lunch with dozens of options including a very tasty hot and sour soup, a few varieties of salads for the health conscious, to the lasagna, noodles and more for the foodies and pav bhaji, anda bhurjis and dahi bhallas for the typical Mumbai-style food lovers in us. And don't even get me started on the desserts - Portions of chocolate brownie, a delicious pie, a cheesecake and a unique combination of gulab jamun and gajjar ka halwa to give us a sugar rush! The repeat glasses of sangria to keep the merriment continuing didn't hurt either.
   In between all this fun and festivities, each of us bloggers were taken into a room, one at a time, where we were introduced to the new Fair & Lovely BB Cream via their skin experts followed by a screening of a short promotional video. We got to try out the BB Cream firsthand and see the difference it made in seconds to the appearance of our skin. Also, this was followed by a fun styling segment where we got to dress ourselves in clothing accompaniments and accessories. Our interactive session ended with us having to pick up a chit which decided the look that we had to create in our blog posts incorporating the Fair & Lovely BB Cream. My chit had "First day at work" written across it, so I ended up creating a look of the aforementioned theme along with a detailed review of the Fair & Lovely BB Cream which you can find here.
   To add to all the fun, we had a desk with quirky props like feather boas, huge sunglasses, masks, pretty hats, mustache and lip cutouts set up against a background of a Fair & Lovely BB Cream board at a corner of the room where we got to pose and get clicked. We girls ended up getting clicked a bazillion times, after all which girl doesn't love to get photographed. We got copies of the pictures at the end of the event to cherish and reminisce of the memories and friendships we made at the event.

   The event ended in a novel way with a pageant of sorts where each of the blogger got awarded with a title to fit her personality or looks the best and the Fair & Lovely beauty experts placing beautiful tiaras on our heads and giving us a bag full of goodies. We toasted to what turned out to be a beautiful day before saying our goodbyes to each other and to our gracious hosts but not before clicking one last selfie.
