Dove Indulgence !

Dove is a brand, that spells indulgence ! And what better way, to start the summers than being pampered by Dove at the #DovePlay event by IndiBlogger ! It was a ladies only meet & the men & boys protested & went into depression !

We were told to dress in white colour.We all turned up in whites.And one has to look at the pictures to realise that women can dress up in white in   myriad  ways ! White tops,white tees,white trousers,white jeans,white kurtis,white salwars,white churidaars,white skirts,white frocks,white capris & so on ! We landed up at the J.W Marriot ,Juhu,Mumbai for the play date with Dove !

We were greeted by IndiBlogger team & Dove ! We queued up to get our white dove batches with our names & the chart of the agenda  for the date with Dove.We were snapped many times .This alone was enough to make us feel special ! And yet ,there was more grandeur waiting  to unfold, as the event progressed.

There were snacks galore, all lined up .We decided to have just a dekko by tasting the pani puris ! Well,they were simply superb ! Other snacks were bhel,ragda patties,sandwitches etal !We could just imagine what must be lined up for dinner ! So ,we decided to stay put, till dinner time !

In the auditorium,we were briefed by IndiBlogger team .It was in the usual way, which meant   free coupons for many ladies ! Then the Dove host took over.We were told to get up & split into teams based on our bands which were handed over in the queue at the beginning ! Then the zumba dancers held sway ! What a work out it was ...bursting with energy ! We ended up sweating in the air conditioned auditorium !

Then three   teams went into different halls to play different games namely the Hula loop,the jigsaw puzzle ,the Dove ball game & hair styling.All games kept us engaged in teams & we worked ourselves into a frenzy as there were prizes to be won !  And after the  games ,all women participants were pampered by hair dressers who straightened ,curled & cut hair ! All the participants looked like celebrities after the hair makeovers !

Then, we all assembled in the lawns by the poolside for the mixing of the drinks. Janaki was a sport & she made a red very berry concoction which earned her a tie in the drink contest ! I did taste it & it was really good !

After this ,we headed for a sumptous dinner spread ! There was paneer,biryani ,naans,raita,dahi vadas,dal makhani,salads etal.And then, there was another sinful spread of the choicest of desserts.This included chef's special,gulab jamuns,rasmalai,chocolate cakes,cakes, & many more ! And all the cakes & chef's special were vegetarian !

Dinner over,there was another game.This was  to pick up the dove cutouts from a glass enclosure which had a mix of many cutouts.A fan would churn all cutouts into a cyclone & the individual had to pick out the doves ! It was fun ! The winner was the one, who collected the maximum doves !

Then, it was time for the winning team to take a bow ! Blogwati G did the honours as her team had performed the best !

It was time to bid good bye.Dove gave us goody bags.My goody bag had a Panasonic hair dryer & a bottle of Dove Elixir ! It has an actual lavendar petal inside ! So it is real ! I wanted this oil, as my hair has turned dry ! It is simply  perfect for my dry hair ! My hair feels nourished,indulged,pampered & cared for ! It is so easy, to style my short hair as it is moisturised right, by the Dove Elixir !

IndiBlogger gave us white tees .And the best part was Dove & IndiBlogger made sure that those who stayed far away, were dropped home at their door steps in cabs ! I was dropped at my home, at eleven in the night & that too in an  Innova !

I think such overindulgence by Dove & IndiBlogger has set the stage for further meets.

Is it any wonder, that for the # Play date with Dove,lady bloggers had travelled from Ahmedabad,Kolkatta,Pune etal !
