Event Coverage and Launch: Parachute & The Art of Oiling

[vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]So it’s been a week since I wrote but I promise I wasn’t snoozing.

I spent the last Wednesday and Thursday working on my first professional style shoot for the blog. And much of Friday was about packing for Parachute’s event.

Saturday morning was spent traveling to Mumbai: where I, along with bloggers from Delhi, Pune, Calcutta were flown in. We were settled in at Novotel Juhu and I frankly found the sea-view quite a sight for sore eyes (there is no beach in Delhi you know, not even a dirty one).

A quick cup of coffee later, it was time to settle in and get ready for the event.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1798″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]A 5-minute drive away from our hotel was Villa 69, the ‘it’ place to host a number of events and most recently Ogaan’s interaction with mega blogger The Sartorialist, who was in the city to promote his new book.

A few minutes, pictures and greetings later, it was time to begin the event when we met naughty hottie Nargis Fakhri and our very own expert, Moses.

All that time we spent dolling up for the event was going to be a waste: they wanted us to OIL our hair. Heh? Kya? Whattttttt? A wave of bitchy was going to take over me when I turned around to see hair wash and blow dry stations. Phew. Crisis Averted. Tell me Moses.

The idea behind The Art of Oiling is to make the most of coconut oil, this wonder oil (something I completely swear by), and also learning a few techniques to massage your scalp to get healthy, shiny, Rapunzel-inspired hair.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1801″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][vc_column_text]Moses went a bit further and showed us a few facial massages (no oil needed here), to feel re-energised, getting an instant glow or to de-stress. These were really easy to pick up and the fun part was Nargis doing it with us too.

A shampoo and blow dry later, I did manage to meet Nargis, and while we weren’t able to to do an interview together, I did manage to tell her I loved her on KWK and her candidness was the topic of many discussions. She was wonderful and a good sport through the event.
