Christmas is upon us and I simply cannot stop grinning! Much to my happiness, the city is lit up and as I sip a cup of delicious hot chocolate this evening, I cannot help but think of how eventful and happy the year has been; hereby making me sit and write this, and think of the wonderful year and the wonderful pre-christmas time I’ve had!
Christmas this year truly has been memorable, courtesy 2 brands, The Leela and Kaori!
It all started with the Leela inviting me to kick-start the month of Christmas with their life sized (yes, you read right, life sized) ginger bread house and hot chocolate festival that is on till New Years!
From the excitement of walking into a gingerbread house to buying your favourite goodies to sipping on a mug of warm and luscious hot chocolate in a flavour of your choice (yes, you can pick from a variety of flavours like Valencia Orange, Bourbon Vanilla, Ceylon Cinnamon and many more); The Leela truly had me happy and grinning in my favourite zone with my favourite goodies!
What followed this brilliant experience was another one at The Taj Mahal Tea House hosted by Nisha Shah from Kaori Fragrances!
A brand, started out of passion that focuses on bespoke fragrances made on the basis of an individual’s characteristics, this was a fun evening that had a lot of bonding over good food, extremely pretty flowers and the fine art of perfume making!
Nisha went on to explain the science behind each bottle and the whole process (including sampling various fragrances), from taking inspiration to executing that inspiration, we also ended up curating a Darjeeling inspired fragrance to add to her existing travel inspired series of fragrances (The Balinese Temple Bay being my personal favourite) and Nisha was kind enough to send us bottles of the Darjeeling fragrance to us!
Am sure it’s Christmas eve by the time you’ll read this and as I secretly hope for presents from a secret santa, here’s wishing you’ll a delightful Christmas weekend!
