Hello, my lovely virtual family! Belonging from different cities, states and countries, I still don't know what makes you come back here every single time and shower on me your love and blessings. But one thing I know for sure is, that you guys have been the whole sole support in my journey of blogging since day one, and it is overwhelming to see our family grow. Two days back (28th May, 2017), I completed 3 full years with Picker at Pace, and nothing would have been greater than hosting a personal meet up session, a day before, with my readers communicating with them in person.
LIFESTYLE, one of country's top fashion brands recently launched their SS'17 collection featuring the new range that draws inspiration from the rich Mayan, Mexican and Oriental civilizations to create a bold yet intricate look, with a casual collection that has a Bohemian vibe with stylish palazzos, maxi skirts and printed dhoti pants. And, it gave me gave me an opportunity to showcase the stock amongst my followers, and interact with them, knowing them better and helping them with essential style tips and imparting knowledge about blogging as a career!
A few months back, when Lifestyle Stores approached me asking me if I would be interested in co-hosting the Style Circle event at their outlet in Lucknow at One Awadh Center Mall, along with Kritika Khurana aka That Boho Girl from Delhi, I just couldn't refuse it. It was an amazing feeling to have been chosen as the first blogger from town to get associated with a brand this huge and co-host the event with one of country's favorite fashion bloggers at the moment. It was a win-win deal! And well, the day finally arrived and I was mesmerized to see the crowd that had gathered to greet both Kritika and me. Tbh, I never expected I had "fans". Nevertheless, the sensational feeling of being at the centre stage, surrounded by people who look upto you cannot be compensated with anything else!

The entire event was set up for 4 hours and I had the best time of my life during that time. Met around 250 different faces, hugged them, received kisses, got to know so much about their field of interest and their aims and aspirations in life! It made me feel super motivated and loved, because the energy was superficial. Most of them complimented me for my styling ideas, fashion and beauty tips and all that I write here on my blog, about travel destinations, restaurant features and even book reviews and the poem snippets. Oh yes, the compassion and kindness each one of them had was astonishing!
At the end, both Kritika and I were surprised to see how modishly the girls had styled themselves in the outfits from Lifestyle Store, as we had earlier asked them to do that, since we were giving out vouchers worth Rs. 2000 to two "best dressed" to shop from the latest collection at the store! I picked Kanika Chowdhary and Kritka chose Nainika Kalita as our personal favorites, and the smile on their faces seemed so bright and lovely!

Lifestyle’s Spring Summer collection has an extensive array of global trends, with striking patterns and glamorous silhouettes for the season. I love the brands Ginger and Code by Lifestyle, personally. In fact, the t-shirt I'm wearing in the pictures above, is from Ginger and I adore it completely! I highly recommend the clothing as they have the best of fabrics, styles and prints to offer.
To conclude, I would like to thank the entire team of Lifestyle Stores for having me at the event and letting me have "my moment". Also, kudos to Kritika for being a pro at the session, and guiding me along. I don't know what would have I done with out her, being all shaky and crazy!
