A Memoir - This Month Last Year - Oct 2014

Hi Guys,

October last year was the time when some of the friends left for India and this year also this happened. It gives a lot of pain when someone close to you leaves the town and you suddenly starts feeling alone in the city. Last year, October brought me a lot of event invites as well as goodies coming my way for the first time. My first CapeTown trip happened for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 launch and I made some new friends also.

1. #PIHT - POLO Pink Pony Brunch - Kyalami Johannesburg 3 Oct 2014 - - This one was a high profile event and I really loved visiting the same. I got some nice Polo branded goodies at the end of the event as well as took some awesome photographs learning from the professional photographers at the fashion show. Check out some of the photographs on my instagram handle - @araijain

2. Product Review - COCOON Boutique Spa @ Radisson Blu Hotel, Johannesburg - - This was my first ever trip to the spa and I really felt relaxed after the full body massage treatment. I took some photographs and became good friends with the fellow blogger who runs this spa. Do check out the deals on GroupON in case you want to visit the spa or call them directly.
3. Product Launch - Microsoft Lumia 730 #LoveThySelfie - - This was my first product launch event with Microsoft here in Johannesburg and I really loved winning the Selfie competition. This was the last time till this year, I have won something in twitter competitions. They also gifted each one of us with the caricature photographs of us drawn live by two artists and framed it for us too.

4. @Zomato - The delicious evening @WalnutGroveSA @SandtonCity Johannesburg - - This is the one and only meet I attended for Zomato SA. I really took some great food photographs and really enjoyed the vegetarian options at Walnut Grove. I loved their rainbow cake and it is simply delicious. Zomato is a nice app to check about the new places where you have not tried eating before with customer's reviews as well as photographs posted of the food, drinks and ambience.

5. #TheEmptyShop - Charity begins @SandtonCity Johannesburg - - The Empty Shop was a nice concept to donate your clothes to the needy. It was a great event which generated a lot of support from all the who's who of Johannesburg. I really enjoyed the event and met a lot of new people. 

Sometimes in life you get so adamant or confident that you know everything and that's the path of failure. I am also going through that phase of life so I have thought to re-learn everything from the scratch in terms of what I understand of blogging and social media. I will be reviewing all my social media channels and will create proposals/campaigns to be sent to brands for sponsorship in this festive season. I will get what I rightfully deserve for every blog post, every photograph and every tweet I post on the social media for the brands.
