Bangalore Bloggers Meet

With a little awkwardness and a little nervousness, I met the "Fantastic 8" on Sunday. Yes, we had a Bangalore Blogger's meet last Sunday at Orion Mall. I am glad, I made it at the last minute and got a chance to meet the most gorgeous and wonderful people. These people do not only rock in the Blogger world but they are true rockstars in real life. All awkwardness survived for just about 5 minutes, turning the environment into laughs, conversations and interactions. As, said by Tanusha there wasn't a bit of feeling of meeting for the first time. Being most of us from North India, we couldn't help but discuss about Delhi street food and shopping, how Kolkata's night life is truly amazing and about tantrums thrown in by Bangalore auto drivers. And, how can I forget we invited ourselves to Shalini's place over next meet. Yes we did discuss all that, we discussed possibly on everything but just not on Fashion. But really did that matter? Absolutely NOT.
I can't stop thanking and giving credit for this wonderful evening to Sonshu, she is a doll. One of the sweetest and cutest person I have ever come across. And, I love your trade pose Sonshu:) Shalini is a fun loving person, full of energy and speaks her heart out. She is a sweetheart. Tanusha, is a darling and easy to go along. We in fact figured out a lot of similarities in between us. Purushu on the other hand was a little shy and conscious specially when all we girls were all over the place clicking pictures. Sayanti, she is indeed a Bengali Beauty. I am a big fan of her smile, it's definitely worth a million dollar. Jahn is gorgeous, very smart and effortless. We will miss you Jahn, don't go to Chennai. Ila definitely has that charming personality. And Rohit, Shalini's husband was extremely sweet and is a wonderful person, being the savior of all the girls with camera in his hand. Thank you Rohit.
Though a few of them had to leave a little early, the pictures session began with a bang. So here, are some of the gorgeous pictures from the evening.

Date Night.

So the most awaited, most exciting and one of the best vacation gets over with this post. Day 3, when there was a little drama in the air. The day went quiet well, loitering around places and exploring things. Coming to the end of the day we knew what would make the last part of the trip memorable,  Schezwan court located in The Oberoi Bangalore. Heavenly place for the Chinese lovers, I feel blessed that I am associated with place not as a customer but as part of the team. While we got dressed for the perfect date and the perfect place, the unfortunate knocked us. We just couldn't go of some random reason. Major disappointment.

While I got dressed: The stripe dress picked from Forever New is gorgeous! Felt in love of it's sheerness and bold stripes. The color combination is perfect for the weather, easy to carry and looks perfect for a Sunday fun brunch and even for a Formal dinner. Being stripes one of the Hero of the season, here's me flaunting in them!
Dress: Forever new
Clutch: Gifted
Necklace: Forever New
Shoes: Thrifted

Because, the night couldn't have been left with this sour experience of not being able to visit Schezwan Court, we decided to go to Olive Beach located in Ashoknagar Bangalore serving Mediterranean and European Cuisine. Nothing of course could have replaced the excitement of going to Schezwan Court , but trust me this place called Olive Beach definitely turned me into a happy person again. We decided to take a table outside, what a majestic ambiance I must say. Those huge blue gate welcoming us, florescent pretty light from the candles, white pebble pathway and those small pools definitely makes the place a beauty. A place perfect for those romantic dinners, for a date and a place that was beyond perfect for that particular evening:)

If ever I had to rate this place I would give it a Pure 10 for it's ambiance, coming to the pricing part it's little heavy on your pocket. I guess it's worth the place. On the other hand, Food is good, really good but we do have better places in Bangalore serving some amazing and toothsome flavors at this price or even lower. Well, my personal experience says I would not visit this place if it's only for food. But, would definitely want to go for it's ambiance, much relaxed atmosphere and it's beauty.
While we entered the place, we were served with some great breads and dips.

Coming to my drink, I loved something called Grey Goose Watermelon Martini. And, Oh it was beautiful. Perfect blend of vodka and watermelon. Man, it was quiet heavy;)
Absolutely loved how they had put the pieces of fresh watermelon into the drink making it more fun!

For the starters, we were thrilled and excited to try Olive's Signature called Nine. Consisted of nine yummylicious Mediterranean dips with assorted crackers! Salasa, hummus, and guacamole being my favorite. Just couldn't get enough of those dips!
Yes, that huge boat is what we were served. Looks great, doesn't it?

Coming to the main course, I ordered Chicken Tagine which was good but expected it to be more moist and flavorful. While he ordered Almond Crusted King Fish served with mash potato. Fish was delicate and cooked gently, apart the almond crust did not go well with the sauce and the fish.

And the best part of meal was Home baked Cheese cake:) with compote of wild berries. Needless to say, how heavenly and scrumptious it was. With both silkiness and characteristic texture, it was dense, smooth and delicate. It was beautiful.

 A few pictures of me. Not that, there aren't any in the post ;)

So, with this the 3 days of immense fun and laughter came to an end. I recon I am still living on the memories of those golden days! Hope, these days to be back soon!
Oh! Those days are already here, Yes parents along with siblings coming to visit me in another 10 days. Couldn't ask for anything more.
Have a lovely weekend guys!!!
