   The first thing I noticed in the new store was the pleasantly scented environment where the various products by Kama Ayurveda were displayed in neat shelves. The decor in the store was heavily influenced by India and its indigenous herbs. The products give an excellent first impression even with just a single glance due to their beautiful packaging.

   I was pleasantly greeted by the PR reps of the brand and offered a glass of coconut water to quench my thirst. Bruschetta, spinach and cheese canape cups and small servings of chocolate brownies made sure that my hunger pangs stayed at bay. Ladies from Kama Ayurveda then quickly briefed me and my fellow blogger buddies about their new one-of-its-kind Bridal Beauty Box services and the special prepacked gift boxes for Valentine's for women and men.

   Next we were taken on a tour of the store by a sales rep from the outlet who quickly introduced us to each and every product in the store. She told us about the benefits of each product with expert fluency and answered our queries regarding the products. We even got to test a few of the products on ourselves and smell their divine scent.

   Taking a holistic approach, Kama Ayurveda provided us with a one to one consultation with a practicing Ayurvedic doctor who gave solutions for ailments that many of us were suffering from. He told me about the medical conditions that I am most likely to suffer from in the future based on the "doshas" and also about the ways to prevent them. I was then suggested a few Kama Ayurveda products the use of which would benefit me by him.

Turn Good Mornings in to Gold Mornings with Colgate 360 Charcoal Gold Toothbrush #Colgate360GoldMorning


   A good start often sets the tone for the rest of the day. Waking up refreshed from a good night's sleep, makes one cheerful, helps concentrate in daily activities and increases the productiveness of people. Personally, I've never been a morning person. Nothing makes me cringe more than having to wake up early in the morning and yes, rushing to work! But now that I am on a sabbatical of sorts, I usually end up sleeping really late at night and rising well after completing 8 hours of sleep around noon.

   Nonetheless, irrespective of the time of waking up, I often need quick fixes to refresh me to give a jump-start to my day. A few of these methods include -
- A hot shower to awaken my senses.
- A thorough brushing of my teeth, getting rid of the buildup of germs and plaque that takes place in the night, providing me with instant freshness.
- Menthol impregnated products -  A toothpaste, a face wash or soap, or a mint or gum - The instant cool that menthol provides does wonders to invigorate me.
- A cup of coffee is an all time BFF, more so during early mornings or when pulling all nighters!
- Nothing pumps me up like listening to songs with fast beats.
- Waking up in the morning and finding delivered courier parcels to open - Be it something that I've shopped for online, contest winnings or stuff received for product reviews!

#OwnThose5Days Whisper Out Loud Blogger Hangout



#OwnThose5Days Whisper Out Loud Blogger Hangout

   Whisper organized an out loud blogger hangout for a few female bloggers at St. Regis, Lower Parel on 19th December, 2015 to break the misconceptions and taboos associated with menstruation, create awareness regarding the same and launch their newer, improved version of the Whisper Ultra Clean sanitary pads. The invitation for the event was sent to the chosen bloggers along with a pack of the Whisper Ultra wrapped attractively in green cloth and presented in a cane basket along with tiny flags printed with popular Whisper slogans like "Touch The Pickle", "Be Unstoppable", "You Go Girl", "Take That Step" and more.

#OwnThose5Days Whisper Out Loud Blogger Hangout

   The event started with bloggers registering themselves at the main desk where a green numbered band was put on our wrists. After having refreshment drinks/tea/coffee as per our taste, all us ladies dressed in green and white (The dress code for the event) settled in our seats and were welcomed by the stand-up comedian, actress and writer - Aditi Mittal, our emcee for the day, who in her own comic way took a stand against various customs associated with periods which are still prevalent in our society - Not entering the kitchen, not touching the pickle, sleeping in a different room, staying apart from loved ones, not exercising, not wearing white colored garments, not washing hair, not leaving the house and so on. 

#OwnThose5Days Whisper Out Loud Blogger Hangout

   She then called upon versatile actress, Kalki Koechlin, who has on many occasions previously voiced her opinion regarding the need to educate women about hygiene, to share her own experiences relating to menstruation. Later, Dr. Nandita Palshetkar, a noted gynecologist joined the stage and shared with us tips to make "That time of the month" a more pleasant experience - Consumption of a healthy diet, daily exercise and salt and caffeine restriction being a few of the major pointers. Last to join the panel of experts was Whisper R&D expert Chetan Kotyalkar, the lone male in a crowd of beautiful women, who took us through the design and making of the new and improved Whisper Ultra via a quick power point presentation.

   The new Whisper Ultra has the following layers:
- Top Sheet - This layer is made up of over 1000 funnel shaped suction holes responsible for unidirectional flow of fluids across the sheet, which quickly absorbs upto 100% of the wetness. It is extremely comfortable which prevents itchiness and period rashes.
- Secondary Top Sheet - It is responsible for uniform distribution of the fluid on the sanitary pad.
- Absorbing Gel Material - These contain the "Magic Gel Crystals" which convert fluids into a gel like material.
- Back Sheet - It prevents fluid from seeping out and causing irritation to the skin.
The new Whisper Ultra is longer and has an odour lock which prevents the sanitary pad from emitting a foul odour. The wings provided help the pad stay in place and are also capable of absorbing fluid.

   In short, the new Whisper Ultra provides:
- More absorption for long hours.
- Better dryness for clean feeling.
- Faster absorption for sudden heavy flows.
- Better comfort with soft top sheet.
- Better odour lock.


#OwnThose5Days Whisper Out Loud Blogger Hangout

   The Whisper R&D expert Chetan Kotyalkar then proceeded to show us a live demo of the better absorbing power of the new Whisper Ultra. First he added a spoonful of "Magic gel crystals" to a glass filled with colored water and right in front of our eyes we saw the mixture turn into a gel like substance that too in a matter of seconds. Then to demonstrate the 5x absorption power of the new Whisper Ultra he poured five times the colored liquid on a sample of Whiper Ultra compared to what he poured on ordinary pads and to our surprise no leakage could be seen through Whisper Ultra while other ordinary pads showed obvious signs of leakage with just 1/5th the amount of liquid.

   What followed next was the official launch of the new and improved Whisper Ultra by the panel of experts in front of us. Aditi Mittal and Kalki Koechlin then proceeded to the Whisper Wall of Fame - A huge wall shaped like the Whisper sanitary pad where they pledged in writing to #OwnThose5Days of the month by being unstoppable and were later joined by the bloggers to do the same.

#OwnThose5Days Whisper Out Loud Blogger Hangout

   All us bloggers then took part in the #OwnThose5Days challenge in teams comprising of 4 people each. The challenge was to accumulate the most points by being fastest at four physical activities, with each team member accomplishing a task each - Paddling an indoor cycling trainer, twirling a hula hoop around the waist, doing repetitions of dumbell lifts and steps exercises. Aditi Mittal and Kalki Koechlin too tried their hand at passing these physical hurdles. Though my team didn't end up winning this challenge, we sure did have a lot of fun participating!

#OwnThose5Days Whisper Out Loud Blogger Hangout

   The event ended with all us bloggers enjoying a lip smacking lunch comprising of corn nuggets, vegetable patties,a variety of sandwiches with a various kinds of sauces and so much more. The out of the world tasting walnut brownie dipped in chocolate sauce and ice creams ended the event on a sweet note with us collecting our take away hampers consisting of a pack of the new Whisper Ultra, a sanitary pad pouch bag and a sipper and making our way out to #OwnThose5Days!
