Garnier BB Cream


Garnier BB Cream had fit into my daily routine to give a perfect looking skin without the hassles of make up. Here are the 2 incident's from my life, in which Garnier BB Cream had play a vital role.

In Trekking Events:

I am a big trek freak and every weekend you can find me exploring new places with my trekking friends. Usually it is believed that, Girls can live without oxygen!. but without makeup!?
OMG!!! They die immediately. So, even when I go for a trekking, I go with full make-up. But my fellow- trek mates pass comments and shoot me with bundle of questions like “Whether I come for trekking or for beauty contest” 

So on the following week, I went without make up. Just went with my natural look. To my dis-appointment, my fellow trekkers could not recognise me :( Infact, they started running away thinking a ghost appeared.

I was so Upset that, both the ways I was not appreciated. Then, One fine day, I saw the Garnier BB Cream ad in youtube and I bought it immediately. For the next trekking, I just applied the cream and It helped me to get an instant beauty and to my surprise the cream had spread evenly with a flawless finish. All my co-trekkers were amazed by my beauty. None of the people could recognize that I used some cream.

One of my friend said, "We go trekking to explore the nature. Here is a natural beauty standing right in front of us"  I just smiled and said thanks to Garnier in my mind.

     2. In My Marriage:

Karthick was so tensed as his mother has seen a girl(Swetha) for his marriage. On seeing his tensed face, Karthick friends asks the reasons.
Karthick replies, "How can I decide my better half in a meeting of just 1 hour?"
His friends advice that its possible and suggest him a idea, "As soon as you meet her, check for her hand bag. If the hand bag is full of cosmetics. Man, our entire hard-earnings will go for her cosmetics alone. Just excuse yourself and ran away from her"



Swetha Room:

Swetha on the other hand is tensed, as she is some how aware of the guys vision on choosing the life partner. On seeing her tensed her friends asks the reasons.
She says, "How can I meet him without make up? I cant see myself on mirror without makeup"
Suddenly her friends gives her Garnier BB Cream and she keeps it inside her pocket and applies it before meeting Karthick.
Karthick was impressed by the natural beauty (Beauty due to Garnier Cream!?) of Swetha and they liked each other and marriage was fixed.

Beyond Boundaries with Author Mehek Bassi

This post is a part of “Beyond Boundaries” at BlogAdda.com in association with INK 2014.

As a part of Blogadda' Beyond Boundaries contest, I interacted with an Author, Blogger, Philanthropist, Relationship Adviser and Nail Artist "Mehek Bassi" who Lives in Ludhiana, Punjab, India.


1. How the world has changed with people getting to know different cultures from different countries?

World has undoubtedly changed a lot, as we all have majorly adopted western culture in our dressing. Now we are aware of our rights, we get inspired from movements taking place abroad, we get to know about the norms followed in different cultures, the right and the wrong things. We get to fight against injustice on a global level, which was a tough job earlier.

2. Share a historical perspective about how travellers like Vasco da Gama, Hieun Tsang used to explore new places and facilitated exchange of cultures and what is the present scenario.?

Travellers like Vasco da Gama or Hieun Tsang majorly focused on finances and improving trade and business. The scenario is pretty much the same today as mostly people move from one nation to another for jobs or setting up business. Exploration lead to improved financial conditions and flow of money, which lead to establishment of one global criteria on which we measure a country’s economy, what we call – US Dollar now. Presently, the world is connected via internet, and everyday business deals occur, e-commerce websites make millions of dollars each day by selling and buying products online. What happened manually earlier, is happening technically now. Better thing is, that we all are Vasco-da-Gamas’ of our generation! We all explore internet everyday and find something new worth sharing with the world…

3. Blog about examples of how people are collaborating with people from different places and building amazing products and services.

People around world are different and so is their demand. Thus, the supply has to be adequate in order to cater to the needs of millions. The Asian market is certainly different from the American one and so the American app developers need to contact someone from Asia in order to understand their requirements. Example – if an e-commerce website has to sell socks, it has to make larger sizes for American or African people, while they will be too-large for Asians considering the average foot size of the people there, so they need to reduce their sizes. This way, global collaboration is a necessity in order to set up a business in the global market!

4. How has technology and blogging helped people explore and meet new people beyond boundaries and learn new things in the process.

Technology lead to blogging and blogging helped us all have a glance into someone else’s house. We can call it a friendly glance, which helped us know about their culture, their festivals, their clothing, their food, and the things which were otherwise limited to a group of people. This way, we could learn a lot from each other. Example - Indian homeopathic and ayurvedic treatments and home remedies were unknown to entire world earlier, but now, anyone can surf YouTube and get to know about the free remedies available for different problems! It has revolutionized both medicine and commerce on a large scale.

5. How you blog and perception of blogging in your respective countries.

I have a website – www.mehek.in – on which I post short stories. Some fictional and some non-fictional. In my country, blogging is the most popular method to share your views about anything and everything. It’s like everyone owning a personal channel! College students are advised to upload the information about their live projects on their respective blogs. Blogging acted as a revolution, especially for students who not only shared information, but also rose against injustice a lot of times just by writing an article. That is the power of words!

Beyond Boundaries with Ashay Shah

This post is a part of “Beyond Boundaries” at BlogAdda.com in association with INK 2014.

As a part of BlogAdda's Beyond Boundaries Competition, I got an opportunity to collaborate with a Blogger Ashay who is residing Hyderabad, Andra Pradesh. 


How the world has changed with people getting to know different cultures from different countries.?

First of all, its the outlook of people that has changed after knowing different cultures. Matured minds have developed and they strive to get rid of racism from others. Traditional way of living of different cultures are exposed and people are getting more open towards else's culture. This has also led to people migration in seeking more business, tourism and ways to cross culture studies. Business is the one that has profited more in this, you name it and its earning at this very moment too. Say food, clothing, standard of living, film, electronics, support service, military techniques, advanced technology, fashion etc.
So this hasn't changed the world as world will be changed when you start practicing positive sayings of every culture so as to u and conserve nature irrespective of your profit, I can say cultural exchange has been beneficial. Sadly, it has lead to disease outbreaks and increase in mortality and cold war. When you start comparing cultures, we get gifts like - World War 1 & 2


Share a historical perspective about how travelers like Vasco da Gama, Hieun Tsang used to explore new places and facilitated exchange of cultures and what is the present scenario.?
Earlier explorations by travellers had travelled for only for 3 reasons - Trade, Slavery & Acquisition. Cultural exchange took place since then and also earlier time, however it didn't facilitate much as those were just a way to simplify living in a new place. E.g. - Persian king had to leave Persia and enter Gujarat through western border, for a very basic need of Man - Survival. The story is authentic and till date makes one thing clear that survival challenges can make you change the way you live and practice your own culture.

People are collaborating with people from different places and building amazing products and services.
Thats Business sector what we looking from cultural exchange. Its not wrong to make services available to other, but at what cost should also be thought. No Fort was built in day and no kingdom was conquered in an hour, hence earlier Kings used to put enormous efforts in understanding one's culture. Living example is Indian wherein Tuglaq's ruled Hindu lands and created a dynasty. It wasn't easy but trade was responsible for getting people understand each other. When ideas and thoughts are exchanged for betterment of mankind, that's the best gift of Cultural Exchange.

Question: Blog about examples of how people are collaborating with people from different places and building amazing products and services.

Blogger Answer : People are able to do that because now there is a huge awareness of the success stories such as Apple and Microsoft . They want to replicate it .so they are going after this.

Question: How has technology and blogging helped people explore and meet new people beyond boundaries and learn new things in the process.
