Gillette Venus Subscribe to Smooth Event

Hello Chicas,

If you are following me on my social media channels you must be knowing that I recently attended the launch of Venus Breeze from Gillette. The launch of Breeze was done by none other than the flawless Bollywood beauty Kalki Koechlin accompanied by ace dermatologist Dr. Rashmi Shetty. Kalki made her appearance in hawa-hawai style wearing a gorgeous sea green ruffle dress and donning a sleek top knot. The stage was lit up with purple lights and the entire set up was beautifully done in lavender and white complimenting the lavender hue Gillette Venus Breeze. 

The event started off with Kalki and Rashmi addressing to one of the most dreadful issues faced by women from all walks of life, the consequences of using a razor. Remembering her school time Kalki mentioned how she used to buy low cost razors and later worry about thick hair growth which was nothing but a myth. Dr. Rashmi went on explaining us how using a razor is as normal as any other method of hair removal. Giving a sigh of relief to all women, she even said that the razor can be used for all forms of waxing including bikini waxing, but need to consult doctor before shaving facial hairs, as it occurs due to hormonal imbalance. Dr. Shetty busted all myths regarding shaving, saying that the most common myth is the hair growth will be faster after shaving but in reality, it doesn't. The number of hairs in any given part of the body is genetically and sex determined and not by the tool which we use.  

The discussion ended with an interactive session wherein they answered to some of the questions from bloggers and clarified all our doubts. After that Kalki busted the shaving myths quite literally by bursting balloons. Post that I caught up with some other bloggers from the city over high-tea. A more detailed review of Gillette Venus Breeze and what I wore to the event is coming up soon on blog.

AFRA TAFRI - Brew up the Madness

Hello Chicas,

With summers round the corner, Kolkata welcomed the largest transitional Gastro Brew Pub, Afra Tafri. We were invited for a fun cocktail mixing session followed by food tasting. Situated in the heart of the city, adjacent to Industry House on the first floor of Haldiram Building- 9 Camac Street, Afra Tafri is aimed at providing a new age drink and food experience to Kolkata. The 180-plus seater is done up in wood, with plush chairs and sofas as seating options.  Divided into three sections — a large room at the end that can transform into a PDR or conference room, the main seating area that houses the bar, and a spacious and open smoking room. The interiors are very quirky with colorful murals on the wall and a huge drum installation on the ceiling right at the entrance.

The food menu curated by Ranveer Brar comprises of global cuisines with quirky named dishes like Akkad Bakkad Kukkad, Gondogol, Desi Swag Nachos. So the food tasting session started with cocktails made by the legendary bartender, Shatbhi Basu. It was an amazing experience seeing her going behind the bar and making some really innovative cocktails for us. I really liked the Watermelon Mojito which comprised of watermelon juice, black pepper and white rum.
Jager Atom was another winner which is a Red Bull and Jager-meister drink with glowing Jager spheres that pops in your mouth. The drink is very smooth and we couldn't help ourselves ordering another round. The USP of Afra Tafri is the microbrewery which is yet to open and promises some really creative flavored beer.

 Coming to the food menu, my favorite pick from the lot is Chilli Mushroom Pate Jam Pot was the yummiest. It's a jar full of mushroom pate made with oyster mushrooms and olive oil, served with tawa parathas and Bhavnagri chilies to spice up the dish. The Hum Saath Saath hai platter is another favorite which comprises of Indian Breads, Paneer and a bowl of Kaali Daal which is cooked for 72 hours and is to die for. Among the desserts, the Bong Tiramisu stole the show which is an Indian version of the Italian coffee flavoured dessert. 

For the press meet, I wore a grey maxi dress over a white lace up top. I have been wearing this dress since winters and I cannot think of parting way with it anytime soon. A pair of
black gladiators and maroon studded sling completed the look.
