A Fun-Filled Day At The JCB Blogger Party

Writers and bloggers of the Women's Web community had the glorious opportunity to attend the Jean Claude Blogger party at Jean Claude Biguine, Koramangala in Bangalore. It was my first meet with the Women's Web team. On that account I didn't want to miss out on the opportunity. The excitement to meet Milan Vohra - the author of Tick - Tock we're 30, coupled with the curiosity to meet fellow bloggers and writers overtook me and I decided to make it to the event.

We were given a warm welcome by the Women's Web community and the JCB Team. I met Aparna (Founder and Editor of Women's Web) for the first time, with whom I had interacted only through emails and phone. It was a pleasure to meet the woman behind this dynamic platform. On entering the Saloon and Spa we clicked individual photographs. The ambience of the place was alluring and highly charged. The JCB team were courteous and very friendly. The stylists were actively moving around attending to the needs of the fellow bloggers and writers. Some of the bloggers and writers already began their manicure, pedicure and hair express ritual sessions.

After a few writers completed their first round of treatment, the fun began to unfold. We played a game where we needed to discover  fellow bloggers with the help of cue cards. That was fun ! We  discovered fellow writers and got to know more about them. Each one of them coming from varied backgrounds.

I spoke to Milan Vohra - acclaimed Author of Tick - Tock we're 30  in the midst of all the fun. She gave us an interesting talk on the 'Blog to book and book to blog' topic. The conversation revolved on why we write, the variations in blogging and writing and how both could benefit us.  Many writers bought her latest book -' Tick - Tock we're 30'. She read out an amusing excerpt from her latest book too. Her last words to me were 'Continue Writing'. In the midst of Milan's interesting talk, we were offered a round of hot coffee with a large spread of delicious  Muffins. After a while the remaining writers indulged in their manicure, pedicure and hair express rituals that took a while.

JCB stylists are professionals.  They pampered us, and completed their work with utmost perfection. They made each of us feel at ease. I got an hair express ritual done. Throughout the session the hair stylists kept giving us tips on how to improve the texture of our hair and asked us a whole bunch of questions to try and analyze, if we make errors in our hair care regime. The whole experience was soothing and fun. My personal stylist Niang was friendly and cheerful. After the beautiful ladies were done with their hair express rituals, the hair stylists clicked photographs with each one of us.

When all the writers were done with their beauty sessions, we concluded the programme with a photo session. All of us grouped together to click photographs. The JCB team gave us gift vouchers that contained  french skin care products, magazines and gift cards.

 Since writing is a serious business, a day of indulgence and pampering gives us the much needed respite from our work. Thank you Women's Web and the JCB Team for the fun- filled and a day of total indulgence.
