The month of July for me started with a bang as I was one of the chosen three winners to live the life of a "DIVA" for 2 days.
As I entered the pretty guest house in Malabar Hills -Mumbai, I felt royalty setting in. It was my home for the days to come by.
What was next was meeting fellow two winners, Mahak and Krittika -with whom I gelled like we were soul sisters.
*Let's get the "SELFIES" rolling!* ;)
Here's a little Sneak peak of what happened over the course. We were transformed. YES!
*Before the makeover*
*After the makeover*
BUT BUT BUT, Being "Miss Diva" is NOT a piece of cake and we got a dose of just that, step by step.
So, Ready for our itinerary? Here we go!
1. Ramp Walk Training with Supermodel "ALESIA RAUT" -
From being a girl who feels she'll trip the very next second wearing high heels to matching the beats of the music, walking on the ramp like she owns the kingdom of her dreams, I was transformed by Alesia Ma'am, into a new me.
There's absolutely no second thoughts that we had a mentor who's flawless, perfect and just too gorgeous.
'We learnt, we changed, we conquered.'
2. Fitness training with expert "SAMIR PUROHIT and NAMRATA PUROHIT"-
What's better than getting into shape?
Yes, right, Nothing. We were taught a new form of exercise called "Pilates" by Samir sir and Namrata, that is famous for developing strength, flexibility, coordination and not to mention, flat abs also. It is practiced by everyone from elite athletes to regular people.
'Health is wealth', Agreed!
Posing with Samir Sir!
The first day ended on a fabulous note and we were on back to our guest house and on our beds all nervous and excited at the same time for there was a bright new day awaiting to shine upon us.
1. Spa Session at Om Thaai Salon in Bandra-
All the fatigue, tiredness just vanished with magical healing. From Manicure to pedicure, the staff at the salon were so affectionate and pampering. I was relaxed and refreshed with a "Let's rock the day ahead" mindset.
2. Getting hair and makeup done for the photo-shoot and dressing up in gorgeous designer outfits-
It was almost time to get "clicked", but before that we had to ensure we looked perfect to match the "Miss Diva" fame. We had Agneesh Banerjee Sir as a wonderful stylist and Subhash Shinde's makeup team to make us look flawless.
A dash of color on the cheeks, a new hairstyle on the head, glitter on heels, shine in eyes and we were all set to pose, glide and sway our way to the limelight!
3. Photo-shoot with the Ace photographer "Appurva Shah"-
It was time for the big moment, We were in the studios to get clicked by none other than the amazing Appurva sir, who works like magic, There's no room for anxiety when he clicks masterpieces.
'Nothing like living like a queen in between *Action* and *Pack Up* is what I have seen'.

Icing on the cake was when we got a chance to meet, greet and click with the reigning Miss Diva's 2013- Srishti Rana , Manasi Moghe and Gurleen Grewal .
Last but not the least, we ended our journey with a group dinner!
OH WAIT. It hasn't ended yet.
It's time to reveal the most important part of our journey-
Wouldn't you like to see our journey in a fun video? I bet it'll be more fun for you than it was for us!

Finally, I conclude by thanking Team Femina, Miss Diva and the Times Group for organizing the #MissDiva2014 Selfie contest and giving us a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live like a diva who step by step earns her way to stardom, but always ahead and never back.
It's hard work, patience, perseverance and dedication of not just the girls but so many people around that goes into making a diva that she finally becomes.
But as they say, What ends well, is well!
These days shall forever be there in my heart like priceless moments that cannot be bought, just felt and appreciated.
Thank you! :)
