If you guys are following me on Instagram, you would know I was in Jaipur two weeks back for Brands n Bloggers meet. Unfortunately, I couldn’t update my Instagram stories simultaneously as internet services were halted due to curfew in Jaipur. Sharing the whole experience with you in this post. 🙂
First of all, I would have missed this trip because my alarm ditched me last minute. But thankfully, the BnB waited for me and I made it. So, we Flagged off from Delhi around 7 and were greeted with Bread n More hampers for our journey.
Our first stopover was at Delhi – Jaipur highway, Ocean collections.
Ocean Collections, is a brand that makes handmade stuff clothes and home decor. They bring contemporary touch to the Indian fabrics, weaves and crafts with their elegant design style. After exploring the place, we were served our first meal of the trip.
After a one n half hour stopover, we were back on road and our next stop was our hotel Grand Uniara. And as the name suggests, it was grand. The interiors of the hotel makes you fall in love instantly.
The royal Rajasthani touch in the rooms were spectacular. After settling down in the hotel rooms and getting ourselves charged, we were back!
The next stop was Arch academy of Design, where we were welcomed like celebrities! It felt sooooo good! 😍 We met founder and director of Arch, Archana Surana and other staff members. Before meeting the students, we had our lunch.. After that, we got to go around the campus and got to look at students work. By the way, the academy has bagged the best uniform design for Jaipur metro! Finally, we got to meet the students and were given a warm welcome by 200 students. Archana Ma’am, greeted all of us with handmade scarves, which was followed by a panel discussion on ‘Blogging as a career’. Unfortunately, we had to cut short the discussion because we were late for other brands meet. But can’t forget the wonderful experience we all had.
Our third stop of the day was at Atalon furniture, they are known for their luxury designs and deals in chairs, sofas and recliners! They have store in Jaipur as well as MG Road, Gurgaon. A fun – fact, they have designed chairs for PM Modi, Arun Jaitley, recliner for Amitabh bachchan to name a few! My personal favorite was Mr. Jaitley’s chair, which spoke nothing but class. And here is a picture of me enjoying my cold coffee on the super comfortable chair.
From Atalon, our next stop was a luxury boutique salon named Tangerine. The decor of the salon had nautical theme to it and was so beautifully done. We were given free samples of BioTip shampoos and conditioners according to the our hair texture. The session was followed by a high- tea. 😉
Next to Tangerine, our next stop was Ratan Jaipur which was a huge store. From home decor to stationary to clothes for men, women and kids! The store had it all. It was very well- organised and sectioned! Each section had it’s own charm! My personal favorite would be the kids section and the stationary!
Well, at this point of time we were really tired. But we were super excited to go to our next stop that was Style n Scissors, it is very famous salon and has been visited by no. of celebrities! We went their to get our makeup n hair done for the night! After a hectic day, it’s really good when someone does your hair or makeup! So relaxing! After our two hours of session, we finally headed to our hotel to change our clothes for the best part of the day.
Yes, the tight schedule was followed by a party at F bar lounge. After a huge success in Delhi, they have opened their club in Jaipur three months back! And has already become one of the best clubbing place in Jaipur. About the night, it was crazy night with fellow bloggers.
The party got over around 2: 30 in the morning, and we finally made to our hotel rooms and dozed off!
After having our beauty sleep, we woke up for lavish buffet in the hotel and got ready for our conference with the brands and the launch of the BnB mag!
All the participating brands introduced themselves and briefed about their brand ideology! And the same procedure was followed by bloggers.
Unveiling of the Bnb magazine was done and after a quick photo session, we got to interact with brands one on one which was followed by lunch.
Before checking out, we had few hours to explore the property and relax by the pool.
In the evening, we got few snacks from the hotel cafe and were ready to leave for Delhi.
The overall experience of Jaipur was amazing, though it was tiring but each interaction was interesting and totally worth it! 🙂
