It’s Friday today and we all know what that means. It’s going to be a lazy day for most people and that includes me. I wouldn’t want to put up something heavy so let me tell you about an interesting event by Aveda that I went to last Friday. The event is all about introducing Aveda and focusing on Invati™ range. I really don’t know what else I can talk about Aveda and Invati™ this time because I’ve went for the press launch back in 2012, which you can read all about it here, I’ve reviewed the whole Invati™ range, which you can read here, ran two giveaway, had an event and a few more activities. Phew 😀 . Nowadays I don’t talk about what went down at an event however I had fun at this one and I wanted to note it down 🙂
For those of you who just followed me, hello there 🙂 and I thought of going through quickly with you on what is Aveda and Invati™ aight?
Aveda™ is wholly dedicated to conducting business in an environmental, sustainable and responsible manner as the preservation of biodiversity. We care about everything we do. We emphasize the need to limit climate change and habitat destruction, reduce toxins in the environment, limit waste generation and reduce or eliminate air and water pollution. Empowered by the unique mission, Aveda™ believes that authentic beauty is one that works in harmony with the greater web of life. It does not qualify as beauty if it hurts the diverse life forms that nature created. Authentic beauty cares for the environment, which we inherited from elders and will leave for the generation to follow us.
Invati™ is one of the many range available under Aveda. It is 97% NATURALLY DERIVED and the most best-selling hair care range by far and a favourite solution among those who suffer from thinning hair. Invati™ system is clinically proven to reduce hair loss due to breakage and to help you keep the hair you have longer. It comprises the power of Ayurveda (the ancient healing art of India) which was fused with 21st century technology—in densiplex™ and invigorating blend of turmeric and ginseng. Known for it’s effectiveness in Ayurveda, organic turmeric is the star ingredient in Invati™. As a result, hair loss is reduced by 33%!
When I enter into the room where the event was held, I couldn’t help but to notice that all the tables are covered with white papers and there were plant pot on each table. It was actually stated in the invite email but you know me, I lost track of things sometimes 😛 . I didn’t pay much attention to that until I was seated and saw the pots. I believe there are three types of plant pot available.
I happen to sit in front of the cutest, shortest and fattest pot by coincidence!
After the short introduction of Aveda and the range Invati™, I found out that we are planting rosemary. Well more like depotting the existing plant to a prettier pot haha! This is how rosemary looks like. You know how freaky I can get with activities at the event but this, I haven’t done this before and boy I was more than happy to do it. I am not someone who like to do gardening and somehow I have a ‘thing’ for small plant, for example bonsai.
Aveda was so thoughtful that they brought in an expert in landscaping to walk us through the whole process. Even though so, my table was the clueless one as there are a few tables to go around so when other tables are either done depotting or half way done, we are still holding an empty pot lololol! We sort of struggle a bit trying to figure out what to do and then the expert finally came to our table and brought us this. He unwrapped it and it was a soil mix with gold something? Oh well I don’t know. I was more excited with the depotting 😀 . But it sure do looks like…
The landscaping expert came back with a bag of shattered pot for us to put into our pot as the 1st layer to help with drainage.
Second final step is to put a little bit of the soil earlier into the pot, remove the original rosemary plastic pot and transfer to the new pot. Lastly, add more soil as needed, press the soil down a bit and voila!
It sure is a messy affair but most importantly we had fun participating in this meaningful activity. I was particularly happy with my plant as I chose a short and flare out rosemary but then I accidentally planted it facing the corner of the pot lol, which by now I’ve already replanted facing the bow direction 🙂
Here are all the gorgeous ladies from my table, together with their rosemary plant.
Thank you Aveda for the short, sweet and meaningful event 😉
