Now gold mornings instead of cold good mornings with Colgate 360 Charcoal Gold

Mornings are the trend- setters for the entire day. The whole day's activities and our entire mood more or less depends on how smooth our mornings are. Savoring the early morning freshness and a healthy morning activity, like a good workout, jogging with my dog, fresh breath, healthy teeth and gums, things as simple as that can actually make me feel a lot better, and in turn my day in the long run.

It was a lazy sunday morning. After a tiring week at work, I was wondering as to what excitement would the Sunday have in store for me! Amindst these thoughts, I was half asleep, almost lazying in bed, when all of a sudden, my doorbell rang. I went up to find a young man, looking eagerly at me, with a half smile on his face. He introduced himself and said that he had carried my 360° Charcoal Gold hamper!. At first, I refused to believe him, but i suddenly remembered having applied for the same a couple of weeks back. But looking at the size of the carton in which the hamper was packed almost amazed me. I somehow closed the door, opened the carton, and was in for the most pleasant surprise! A stylish box which had “It's time to wake up to a Gold Morning” inscribed on it was right in front of me, almost adding the missing excitement to my usual Sunday.

I was very eager to open the hamper and unravel the exciting things that Colgate 360° Charcoal Gold had in store for me! I was not disappointed. There was a note from Colgate Palmolive as well as a lot of exciting goodies that I found in the "magic box" that unveiled. There was a sipper, toothbrush, Coffee Mug as well as a well written note from Colgate giving its greetings!

It was picture perfect, and the hamper had arrived at just the perfect time: to make my mornings richer. I almost immediately got excited to start using the good looking products. And to my surprise, not only was it stunning in the way it looked, but also in the way it cleaned my teeth, tongue, cheeks and gums. No wonder, they called it "the Gold Standard of Whole Mouth Cleaning"

So, I look forward to my mornings now, as another exciting times with Colgate 360° Charcoal Gold. Indeed Colgate 360° Charcoal Gold has helped transform my cold mornings into exciting "Gold Mornings!"

A bucketful of wishlists fulfilled with 4G internet speed!

Speed is the new name for life today. Whether it is the hustle and bustle of the city or fast- changing things in your own life, things have become way too faster now than one can imagine! Gone are the days when pigeons and postmasters used to deliver messages over days, now is the time for ultra- fast speeds- messages can be reached and large volumes of information can be transmitted over flash of a second!

All we need then is an equally amazing internet speed to keep pace with the speed of our life. Choosing a good service provider is the first and the most important step in that direction- as the world is constantly shrinking. And who could have done better to achieve this task than Airtel, which has always been a pioneer in providing quality services to its customers at affordable prices!

So what are the essential characteristics of a great internet plan? For most of us, it would mean being able to stream our favorite videos online on our smartphones itself, or being able to download that latest movie in a matter of hour. Airtel 4G is faster than that, it can help you download a high- definition movie in a matter of few seconds! And this is no mean feat!

I could do so much more with such a great speed at my disposal- it would save so much time for me to do our other work- rather than waiting for hours for download to occur. Also the quality of the video streaming would improve drastically! Also, I listen to music online using apps such as Songza and Google App music. A great internet plan would help me seamlessly listen to high- quality music on-the-go. Also it would help me download work related documents, or video lectures for educational purpose at a fast speed- thus helping me in my career goals as well.

Also, without high speed capabilities, the connection can be slow if there is more than one person in my household using the Internet at the same time. I don’t have a Wi-Fi connection at my home so if sometimes my existing plan on the data card is exhausted, I can use my smartphone as a hotspot to get back to lightning fast speed on my laptop and other such devices. Also as Airtel provides me high-speed Internet service, a number of people are able to use the Internet at the same time. For example, one of my family member could be researching information online while another is streaming a movie or television show. Simultaneously, a third family member could connect to the Internet from their smartphone and download a new app. With high speed Internet, everyone in the family is able to utilize the Internet concurrently without a hitch in connection, that too at affordable rates.

Airtel 4G is definitely worth the investment for those with family looking for entertainment, and those who need a strong network for their career. Not only will you be able to browse the Internet without having to reload pages, you will be able to open multiple pages at the same time with lightning fast speed. So Airtel 4G is the new name for a great network!

Balanced diet with Honey for a balanced life

The importance of a sound balanced diet cannot be less emphasized in today’s times of new varieties of junk food, long hours in front of computer, mobiles and all those distractions which result in pounds of belly fat and make us obese. Obesity is well rampant in today’s times. The rising importance of yoga centers and gymnasiums is a testimony to the fact that people are not as fit as they used to be. But does everyone have time to spend those long hours at the gym? Ask the majority working class, especially people working in corporates and you will get a firm “no” as a reply.

So then what is the alternative? The best and the most effective answer to this question is a healthy and balanced diet with honey, which would help eliminate the useless toxins of the body, and help you detoxify, thereby increasing your energy levels but also burn the layers of fat under your skin, in a longer run but effective way. Remember, Rome was not built in a day! So the urge for a healthy diet has to come from within.

Some of the best benefits that a person may derive from a healthy diet include:

1. A healthy diet helps us have more energy to do things in our day- to-day life, unlike fatty food, which is temporarily filling, but deeply harms the body in the long run.

2. A healthy mind dwells in a healthy body! It’s a fact, not just a saying. Its scientifically proven that a body which consumes balanced diet has a more active mind than an obese person.

3. It makes you look more attractive- Remember that fit guy from office who received lots of proposals from beautiful girls on Valentine’s Day? It’s not a secret. The better the diet, the better the body, the more heads will turn towards you.

4. It increase your self- confidence- When a person is fit, he naturally feels better from within. Having a balanced diet requires only a thoughtful mind, but it can have multiple benefits, ranging from control of body weight to strengthening our immune system, more energy to do our work, happiness, improving our skin tone, the list goes on and on.

5. Makes us happier- It's scientifically proven that a healthy diet helps avoid depression and avoids premature ageing.

6. Saves the doctor’s bills- Naturally if we stay healthy, the doctors bill is bound to reduce as we will be less prone to diseases and thus this saving will eventually lead to prosperity going by the ever increasing cost of medicines in today’s times.

The best thing can a person can do first thing in the morning- and I have been an avid follower of this practice too- is to have a glass of warm water with honey. It instantly helps to kick start our metabolism- which helps remove impurities from our body, and prevents belly fat from accumulating. It is also an effective alternative to sugar, which is the root cause of obesity.

Dabur, a company which is established worldwide for its vision in the direction of healthcare and general well- being, has set the trend yet again by launching yet another healthcare revolution in the market, called Honey Diet. It is a must for people of all ages and will go a great deal in achieving the health goals of the masses.

So, stay fit, feel young with the goodness of Dabur honey!

UC browser for seamless cricket experience!!

How much important Cricket is to the people of India does not need much elaborate description! The fact of the popularity of the game can be easily estimated by the fact that people worship the cricketers, become sad at the drop of a hat if their favorite team India loses a game. It then becomes a question of utmost importance, almost integral to have a seamless cricket coverage.

In earlier days, when not many people had access to smartphones, working class of people used to line up outside showrooms to catch live action.

Cricket is one game which keeps Indians together. We might be all divided on our views of issues carrying social or national importance, but if Yuvraj Singh fails to perform in that all important match by playing a rash shot, we will all be unanimous in criticizing him.

In these days of technology, it has become much more easier by live applications which can help you catch our favorite game on the move on our smartphone itself. However life is not that simple, is it? There are lot of things to keep us away from catching live coverage of the game such as that all important business meeting which your boss wants you to attend, or that most important lecture in tuition which you can't afford to miss- life is full of these small things that a true Indian fan has to accommodate- along with cricket of course!

Internet has almost become integral to our lives today, it is almost as important as oxygen in today’s times of wide social media outreach.

My amazing #Sniff-Sniff meet experience!

If the #sniff sniff activity was itself exciting enough, the #SniffSniff meet was definitely the cherry on the cake!

There were rounds of speculation across blogging network as to what the mysterious product is going to be. Finally an amazing surprise was unveiled at the Four Seasons Hotel, Worli. As the rain gods had their way, it was pouring heavily since morning itself. The welcome of monsoon to the city was an amazing experience. Being a weekend, the trains were less crowded. I was enjoying the sight of rains and thinking what an amazing day, when suddenly a middle- aged man came and sat next to my seat in the train. He seemed to have forgot his umbrella, and as a result, was fully drenched in rain. In addition to it, there was a pungent smell coming from his clothes. I was disgusted to say the least! I was thinking, could there be a way that we could ban body odour? Some awareness on the subject? It was strictly needed in a city like Mumbai, specially in the crowded local trains.

I reached the venue of the meet a bit late, thanks to my fellow bloggers who chose to enjoy the rains till the venue. As we grabbed our seat, we saw the section of the lobby had been divided into 2 rows, with male bloggers on either side. There were a few lady journalists as well, being a media event.

As soon as I settled down, I saw a pretty female anchor for the evening. Till now we were not aware about the brand that was going to launch the mysterious product until we saw Nivea men written all over the launch banner.

After an introduction, th lady made way for our host for the activity segment, Mr Animesh Gupta. He seemed to be a very enthusiastic host, giving us a brief about Nivea as a brand and made it clear that we were going to learn all about body odour and how to prevent it! (Wow, what a respite as I was just thinking about the same an hour back.

The meet commenced with an interesting activity where the bloggers were divided into teams of 5.In each group 2 of the bloggers were blindfolded who had to smell different things and depending upon the smell had to identify the personality of the person who smelled like that. The other 3 had to pick five items at a time and make the 2 blindfolded persons smell them.

In my group I braved the task of getting blindfolded and man! The items were quite diverse. Ranging from Roses to onions!

Thereafter, there was another session where Animesh educated and took our feedback at the same time on diverse questions on body odour like 1. What is the biological reason for development of body odour. 2. Effects of different kind of food habits on body odour. 3. What kind of diet is preferable when you have a body odour. 4. How to confront a person who has bad body odour and make him/her realize the same. 5. How to react when someone confronts you and says, “You smell bad today”.

A pleasant surprise awaited us at the meet when my friend told me that a handsome bollywood superstar is going to grace the occasion! We were all hell excited to know who he was. But knowing Nivea and bollywood it wasn't that difficult to guess. Can you? Yes, indeed Arjun Rampal

I had been a fan of his work and not his looks that much unlike everyone else, but seeing him in real, I could say he can give any handsome hunk a run for his money!

. The pretty host lady for the evening couldn't stop blushing on seeing him! He had charmed everyone by his sheer presence.

He talked about his connection with Nivea and the beauty of its products. Also he answered the questions asked by fellow bloggers. He was so right when he cheekily remarked that "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, smell is not!" :P

He was gracious enough to let the shutterbugs click photos with him.

It was time to break for a sumptous lunch, accompanied by photos with fellow bloggers.

Off we headed towards the hall which was all set for the launch!!

It was time to unveil the mysterious product.

#BanBodyOdour was trending all over India. There was a hilarious video streamed spreading the message to #BanBodyOdour.

Mr Rakshit Hargave, the M.D. of Nivea India finally took the centre stage. Lights, camera and action – “India’s first body Deodorizer” was revealed.

A turning podium was in front of us which had a large model of “Nivea Deodorizer” and Arjun Rampal was hugging it tytly!

It was Q&A round as Arjun Rampal and Mr Rakshit Hargave took centre stage and braced some funny as well as some serious questions from the media regarding the Nivea Deodorizer.

After responding to around 7-8 questions it was time for curtains and photo session ensued

We too had our mini photo sessions at the end of the meet.

It was time to head home with our goodies as the #SniffSniff meet concluded successfully.

As I opened the goodie bag, surprise surprise: “India’s first Deodorizer” gave my day a kick again :)

I attended the #SniffSniff product unveiling event by BlogAdda in association with Nivea.
