‘A Man Called Ove’ & lessons in writing and reading

This is, technically, not a book review. I rarely write those anymore.

That said, this is kind of, sort of a review of a book that touched my heart, opened my eyes and made me reflect on a number of things, as a reader, writer and blogger. But I am getting ahead of myself. Let’s back track, just a bit. Continue reading “‘A Man Called Ove’ & lessons in writing and reading”

A month later-Does Nioxin work? #NioxinNowInIndia

“Did you do something to your hair?”

“Why yes! How did you know?”

“I noticed that there are hardly any strands of hair on the floor now!”

A tear escaped my eye- a tear of joy- as these words emerged from the soul I know will not lie: My household help/ maid! (What did you think?) ­čśë At last, it seemed that my dream would be a reality: the dream of a full head of hair!

It’s been a month┬ásince I attended the product launch of the Nioxin hair care solution at the Bodycraft Spa in Bangalore.

A weekend to remember with #OYOxplorer and @OyoRooms

Ever felt the need get away in the midst of a hectic work schedule? Let’s face it, we all love it when we can take a break and just┬áslip out of our ┬ároutines, even if it is just for a day or a weekend. Looks like someone was listening to my heart, because that’s exactly what I got as part of the #Oyoxplorer experience with Oyo Rooms, in association with IndiBlogger.

@Oyo Rooms hand picked ten bloggers from Bangalore to spend a day touring the city, ┬átogether with a review of the Oyo rooms that included an overnight stay┬áat the Oyo Premium Majestic, in one of Bangalore’s busiest districts. It was a pleasant surprise to receive the call from IndiBlogger which confirmed that I would be part of this experience and boy, was I excited!
