Jan: P&B Moved to WordPress, with an all new design, and we see a whole host of ‘Birch Box’type sample boxes hit the Indian market (only to somehow fizzle out a bit later)
Feb: P&B is chosen as the Indian representative for MAC Trends Spring Summer for 2012!!!! Mac flies me to Dubai to attend the 2012 trends presentation and the whole experience is just unbelievable. Thank you MAC and Vimi Joshi and everyone else for making me feel so comfortable. : )
Mar: Its Bachelorette Party Time in GOA !!!! Thank you to my amazing best friends for making this one of the most fun trips of my life . Love you guys. In P&B news, we are featured on Cosmopolitan Magazine ~!!!!!! WOOHOO! Big Moment.
April: April, i recieved my bridal lehenga :) and another special moment happened. The official ‘bent on one knee’ proposal on a hot air balloon in Jaipur <3
May: May was uneventful, except the death of the beloved Ponds Tinted Moisturizer which forced me to rethink my everyday skin routine!
June: June was the weddinggggg ! It all passed by in a blur of excitement and nervousness and adrenaline and i just sometimes want to rewind and elongate it. Except the mehndi ceremony which was torturous, everything else-replay please !!!
July: Honeymoon time, and a Euro trip with so many highlights, that its diff to recount my fav moment. The chocolate and wasabi ice cream? or the cruise under the eiffel? or losing all my money in the London Casino???
Aug: I get to attend the Manish Malhotra show at DCW 2012 which was SO SO fun! Also the launch of P&B Real Brides, where we feature a real bride to be and her outfits and stories!
Sep: Its the launch of Decor Diaries, a section which will get some more attention in 2013. Sep was the time the house started resembling a ‘home’ and something which i could comfortably cozy into.
Oct: October was the launch of the ‘Brides by P&B‘ website. It kind of marked the official kick off of the wedding shopping service for NRI’s though unofficially i had been doing it for a while! It also saw the launch of the P&B Panel- a feature that slowly has become one of the more popular ones on the blog
Nov & Dec: November and Decembers biggest news was probably the opening of Sephora in Delhi. But probably bigger than that was the social consciousness that suddenly seemed to revive in Delhi-ites with people storming the streets asking for justice for the rape victim . (Btw: the protests today have turned violent and i just dont think its right that protestors are burning public property and behaving like hooligans themselves. Some drunk lout have infiltrated the peaceful protestors and causing havoc)
Its been a super eventful year for 2012. Just taking a moment to thank God for everything, and everyone in my life I feel blessed. Thank you!
