I am a huge fan of GoodHousekeeping magazine. I have subscribed it from the the day it came to India, october 2004. (Oct is my birth month too).
The magazine organizes an annual event 'The GoodHousekeeping show' during first week of march since last three years. This is I was fortunate enough to be in Delhi where the event was held. Its a three day event that touches every aspect of woman's life. I has workshops with experts from field like health, family, kids, beauty, cooking etc, celebrity chats plus lotsa games, quizzes and product showcasing stalls.
I attended this show on the last day (how I wish I could have made it on first two days too).
It was such a fun day for me. I attended workshops, won quizzes and got prizes. That includes - skin analysis by ponds experts, kissology personality analysis by Marykay, britannia yummy eatables, a goody bag from Transitions, body fitness analysis and some more. I bought few sterling silver jewelry too.
Then there was chat show on beauty by Pond's and the expert panel had : Neelam (yep the lovely bollywood actress and renowned jewelry designer), Renna Dhaka (famous fashion designer) and Dr. Rashmi Shetty (a renowned dermatologist).
I had a gala time there. But best part of the day was meeting Manjira Dutta, the editor of GoodHousekeeping.
She is such a sweetheart. I spotted her and then went on to congratulate on the great work she and her team is doing. She responded so warm-heartedly. I wanted to take a pic with her. She left what she was doing and obliged me immediately. The first click was not so good.
So she very generously offered another click. We went at a nice, camera friendly spot and the she asked one of her colleague to take our picture. Despite being so occupied with managing the event work, she spend some time with me. What a lady !! She is truly a women of substance.
I love you Manjira :)
I had such a terrific day and fantastic and satisfying 'me time' after sooo long.
Three cheers to GoodHousekeeping team for coming up with such lovely, useful, fun-filled, done at a large scale yet so well organized event.
