The thought behind starting this company is getting smile on faces. Their motto is that the smile is the best curve you can give on someones face, with their handcrafted an personalized gifts you can actually give a happiness to someone. Their gifting items are made keeping in mind that the gift is not the actual happiness but the care you show with it is what matters actual.

I was really excited to have some of their products to have a look while i got in contact with pinky. She was kind enough to send me some products to share with you all and thus am going to start a mini series to share all those goodies with you on the blog. 

Gift #1

So today am starting with the first box i pulled out of parcel. It is a cute hut.

The cute box in the shape of hut. The first thing I remembered while I saw that was my school project when I was in class1 and we have to make a hut in holiday home work. The hut is decorated with pretty colorful paper and have a slit on one side to peep inside and also to open the box. The roof of hut comes off so you can easily store the gift or anything you wish in it.

About Kit

the aaranyaa travel friendly kit has super cute bottles to take with you on your any trip. The kit is made specially keeping in mind that what a person would essentially need on his/her trip. All of the product in kit are 50 ml of quantity. I got this kit in a giveaway by the company and am really loving the cute bottles stashed in my vanity as display while am not traveling.

What is inside?

Well the Aaranyaa travel kit had came just in a cardboard box with their pamphlet, while I was expecting at least a pouch or carry bag with it. As it is a kit it would look pretty in a pouch made to store them perfectly. But, its fine.

The kit contains 5 mini size bottles which could be used for 2 or 3 days trip. It contains 2 shampoos which are seabuckthorn shampoo and Argan shampoo. Both the shampoo are sulphate free which is one of a high quality of the brand.

It has hydrating body lotion which is enriched with argan oil. A body lotion for which I am kind of skeptical that it is enough quantity that would last for 2, 3 days. Well the body wash is again sulphate free and contains cranberry essential oils. The last product is a face wash which consist of neem and tulsi extracts and claims to be anti bacterial.

My experience with these products

Well I had only used them once as they wont last if I had to review them after multiple usage, hahaha. So back to the kit 

1. Seabuckthorn shampoo The light yellow colored shampoo smells heavenly, I just love to sniff it again and again and after the wash the fragrance lingers in hair for whole day and I was controlling myself to deliberately taking my hair and sniffing them. The smell is kind of rich and brings the vibe of beach sunshine and vacation. It claims to give soft and silky hair which is somewhat true. My hair really feels more soft after wash which results in less breakage while detangling.

travel kit

2. Argan shampoo This shampoo is light leaf green in color, it also has the same kind of smell but with a ting of lemongrass. I had a chance to use this shampoo only once as well when I was out for a small vacation. The formula is made to give long and strong hair but I can’t comment on that as it is not possible to determine the length or strength of hair in one or two wash. But the shampoo is really effective to keep the head calm as it feels cool after using the shampoo and using this shampoo in hot weather is just a blessing.

travel kit

3. Body lotion The hydrating body lotion is enriched with argan oil as well. But unlike the shampoos it does not smell nice atleast to me. It smell reminds me of baby medecines, maybe due to having lot of oil and shea butter in it. Other than the smell which is a turn off for me, I used it and liked the overall work. It is in off white color with medium thick liquid consistency if you could understand. It is smooth to apply ad gives an instant finish of smooth skin the smell is really hard to notice after couple of minutes of applying it. So it can bear with the smell for the rich smoothness it provides.

travel kit

4. Body wash The body wash is enriched with cranberry essential oils thus smell really fruity. Like a concentrated fruit pulp. The smell is overwhelming but sniff directly but after using on body it becomes soft and lingering which will be there for couple of hours. The fruity smell is what attracts me most to it but its not just nice smell but also pure. The body wash is sulphate free and gives a moisturize feeling after bath. Normally i use a moisturizer after bath, if i use soap but with body wash or shower gel i think you can skip the moisturizer.

travel kit

5. The last one is the anti bacterial face wash enriched with neem and tulsi. The face wash has really mild smell of neem and tulsi, just like a pack. Which is quie intresting to me as all other of the kit components have really outrageous smell. The idea behind the mild smell maybe that it has to be used on face and many people don’t like strong smells, which makes it friendly to the sensitive noses!! It really cleanses the face well an left the fresh and soft feeling behind after the wash.

travel kit

So these were my takes on the aaranyaa travel kit which they call as ‘Aaranyaa trai-vel kit’ you can purchase the aaranya products on their site as well as on flipkart, amazon.

Now, m coming back to the news which I think many of you must be waiting to know. Chatpatiilife is going visual !! Well actually its already visual but kind of through the words that you can read but now you can actually watch the chatpatiilife. Welcome the chatpatiilife to youtube soon and shower your love their as well as you are giving here. More fun more chatpatiilife is awaiting ahead on youtube to meet you.

Till next time, make your life - Chatpatiilife!!

Eduardo's Milonga De Mis Amores - the launch night to remember!!

Everyday of our life is become more of hectic, home to office and back is became the daily routine of almost every human. What we need is to relax and take some time to be more socialize. This Friday on July 1st is was able to witness a new way to relax, socialize and meditate, it is through Tango.

What is tango??

Tango is a social dance originated in Argentina in 1880’s. The slow and sensual dance is highly addictive and you can’t just sit still while there is tango going around. The classy, sensual and sophisticated dance is being famous in west as Obama was also seen dancing tango while e was on his visit to Argentina. And now just because of the lovely Kiran Bajaj Sawhney and sir Eduardo the Tango has taken the steps into the Delhi. Its been 14 year since kiran has been introduced to tango, thanks to that day we are able to learn from our own master in tango.

The gala event.

The event is the launch of Eduardo's Milonga De Mis Amores in the grand 5 star hotel the Eros hotel, New Delhi. The event was not just limited to introduce the tango in society but also a milango. Milango is a tango social where everyone knows tango, dances tango, only tango music gets played. where you can socialize with other lovers of the dance as much as you are.

The guest.

The guest list was full of enthusiastic bloggers who wants to check out the new form of dance and be a part of it. There were expats, diplomats, ambassadors and dignitaries to attend the wonderful event going unfold.

The place

The place is as I mentioned before is the grand 5 start hotel located in the Nehru Place, New Delhi - the Eros hotel. The ambiance was setup in the club bar of hotel Eros with candles, dim lights and the soothing tango music. The place was filled with people enjoying the mood, the tango and the yummy appetizers that were serving there.

After there performance we were given the dance floor to ourselves to explore the dance and join in the milango and enjoy the night in the ambiance of the sensual tango. The Tangueros who dances tango were so much supportive and welcoming others to dance and even ready to teach ad do some moves with the beginners.

Overall experience.

The night was fun, filled with soothing rhythm, sensuality and belonging all just because of our host Kiran Sawhney who made it possible for us to get to know tango, to be a part of milango and to know a dance form which is not just fun but a part of meditation itself. It felts to be apart of night with her hospitality and warmth which welcome us to be part of the milango, be a part of tango.

As there is a saying in tango community that ‘you do not find Tango, Tango finds you. And if its calling you out, you can learn this dance from the first school of tango dance itself started by Kiran Sawhney, the NDTS New Delhi Tango School in GKII.

With this note I take leave from you today till next time don’t forget to make your life - Chatpatiilife!!
