Mosaic Mussoorie Hotel Review

April 5, 2017
Mosaic Mussoorie_18

As a child, I have visited Mussoorie plenty of times with just the goal of taking a dip at ‘Kempty Falls’. That’s exactly the kind of picture one has about Mussoorie, when in reality, this hill station has much more to offer. Not to forget, this is where Ruskin Bond lives! But it’s a different story to tell (Which I will in my upcoming write-up) so let’s focus on the agenda of my recent visit to Mussoorie or as people call it ‘The Queen Of The Hills’. This Uttarakhand summer capital has been seeded, manicured and preserved since British Era and still embarks the glory of heritage and the history dusted off over time. And amidst this glory stands tall and high Mosaic Mussoorie, the freshest property in town. A stay at Mosaic Mussoorie is nothing less than getting the best out of what Mussoorie has to offer. Great views, best location, beautifully decorated interiors, warm hospitality, cosy accommodation and lip-smacking multi-cuisine delicacies. Probably the reason why I saw it fully booked even when the season is almost at the closing as the weather becomes hotter by the day. THE LOCATION If you are looking at getting the most picturesque views of the Doon valley, with great mobility to all sides of the town and a walk away to the busy lanes of the ‘mall road’ then Mosaic Mussoorie is the destination for you. What really caught my attention was the fact that having been a new property, Mosaic has definitely scored the best location one can acquire in today’s time at such a popular hill station spot. THE ARCHITECTURE Quite contemporary, quite spacious and definitely has a great usage of sunshine and great views put to use in the best possible manner. The famous logo of Mosaic can be seen from …

Make Up Ready With NEW Faces Cosmetics

February 23, 2017
Faces Canada 2017_1

Faces Cosmetics collection that I have been swearing by since the last 3 years now. Their products are insanely pigmented, the colour palette apt for all Indian skin types and the long lasting coverage is absolutely remarkable. Note that no one is paying me to vouch by a certain brand, but this is something I have personally tried and claim for. Speaking about Faces Cosmetics, they recently invited us beauty enthusiasts of Delhi to celebrate Valentine’s Day with boyfriends BEST FRIENDS! So not only did we try out their latest range of lippies, Concealer and other palettes; but also got a chance to catch up with our best friends in a hub of make up and pretty pink cupcakes. Faces Cosmetics often come up with a range of Lip Crayons adding a few more shades to this hot-selling product every year. And this time, they have added an array in hues of browns, red and neutrals. My personal favourite has to be the ‘Not So Wine’ shade that goes perfectly well with most of my outfits and occasions. With contrast to the exhausting range of Lip Crayons, Faces Cosmetics has also come up with a swift range of Matte Nail Paints that do result in matte finish, indeed! The Ultime Pro Nail Lacquer lasts for 3-4 days before chipping and does provide a quite gloss-free appeal to it. My favourite shade has to be this dark purple shade called ‘Matte Majestic #17′. Ultime Pro Supreme Gel Eyeliner is a highly pigmented black eyeliner which offers smooth application and a quite dark ebony look post application. I have tried it twice till now and haven’t faced any kind of smudge of withering, over wearing it for a period of 8 hours straight. The Ultime Pro Eye Shadow Palette in ‘Rose’ hue is …

Reason why Fairmont Jaipur is The King Of Royal Luxury!

January 19, 2017
Fairmont Jaipur Virtual Tour_11

Rajasthan’s Hospitality is all about extravaganza and royalty. I can go on and on talking about why I am in absolute awe of this property, but it speaks for itself at great lengths anyway. The architecture has been inspired by the Royal Rajputs and Mughal Dynasty. Each part of the decor has a story to tell and the addition of carefully curated artefacts enhances the realism of Fairmont Jaipur. Just like any other Fairmont property all across the globe, it too has closely worked with the traditions of Rajasthan and what royal lifestyle was all about, centuries back. And to speak about the artistic beauty of this hotel, it will be unfair if I try to just put it in words. As they say that a picture speaks a thousand words, scroll down as I have handpicked 20 odd photographs from a bulk of 2GB data, to summarise what a beautiful architectural marvel Fairmont is all about. You can also check out the Accommodation Review to learn more about their services.   Learn more about this enchanting property and a book a stay for a luxurious experience  http://www.fairmont.com/jaipur/

himalaya-herbals-body-lotion_1

Winter Skincare is definitely a challenge, especially when you reside in dry regions like Delhi where your skin tends to dry out and chap with just one breeze. Himalaya Herbals believes in the power of deep nourishment be it for any season. And to celebrate this cold season, the brand sent across a hamper of Winter Care Range my way. I definitely feel pampered and spoilt for choice. It’s been approximately 2 weeks since I have started using Himalaya Herbals Winter Care Range and I have absolutely no complaints till now! To begin with, Himalaya Herbals Nourishing Lotions range is a must have product in your winter care kit. Depending on the severity of the dryness, Himalaya Herbals offers 3 varieties of Body Lotions for the winter season. For those who care about the aromatherapy benefits of lotion application, Himalaya Herbals Soothing Body Lotion is the product. It consists of Grape Seed and Almond Oil to provide moisturisation and leaves a mild soothing fragrance that lingers on for an hour or so. If someone is looking for pure nourishment, then Himalaya Herbals Nourishing Body Lotion is the go to product. With the goodness of Aloe Vera Gel and Winter Cherry, this one is apt for people suffering from mild dryness. And for people belonging to dry regions and are in need of some sever moisturisation treatment, then Himalaya Herbals Cocoa Butter Intensive Body is the product to swear by. I have used Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion last year as well and it surely stands out for its chocolatey fragrance and the moisturising goodness upon application. The price tag is quite pocket friendly and the lotions are a great option for daily usage in comparison to the thick body butters that cost a bomb and their utility is limited and greasy …

We Indians are still warming up to the Italian palette. While we’ve had pizzas and pastas all our lives, this European region has much more than just the P’s to offer when it comes to Italian cuisine. Add a spin of gourmet touches to the palette, and we have Bella Cucina, the newest addition to Le Meridian Gurgaon, offering finest of the Italian blends in a luxurious fine-dining setup (of course). Call it the amalgamation of Starwood – Marriott hospitality or the need to have Gourmet Italian Addition to the ever exploding lineage of dining in Gurgaon (or Guru Gram), Bella Cucina is abiding by the Italian culture in its purest complexity and bringing it to our palettes; on a daily basis. Thanks to the excellent efforts by Chef Suprabhath Roy Chowdhury and Sous Chef Amit Kumar, Bella Cucina is churning out some of the finest ricetta on our piatto! BELLA CUCINA, in Italian, means ‘Beautiful Kitchen’ which stands true to the word because of the restaurant’s imported Molteni design, customised based on the Chef’s requirements. And to celebrate the opening of Bella Cucina over Italian dining and wine, we had an array of ricetta crafted by Executive Chef Suprabhath Roy Chowdhury and animatedly presented by Sous Chef Amit Kumar. For antipasti and soup we were served ‘Cappuccino of Mushroom’ served with a mushy portion of Porcini Brioche. If you adore the flavour of mushroom then you will definitely fall in love with this soup. Unlike other thick mushroom soups, this one is medium in its consistence which brings out the flavours more and doesn’t leave you feeling fuller already. I loved the smokiness that has been blended with the mushroom concoction which goes perfectly well with the buttery Porcini Brioche. The next thing on the menu was ‘Caprese Salad’ …

Himalaya Herbals Lip Care Range

April 4, 2016
Himalaya Lip Care Complete

Lip care is on top of every girl’s mind and it is incomplete without a decent lip balm. Not to mention the role of a lip balm when it teams up with Kajal to give us that minimal look we all are always vying for! I keep no inhibitions in admitting that chapped lips make me really uncomfortable. Moreover, it keeps me distracted from whatever I am supposed to be doing. Being an admirer of non-artificial stuff, I always seek 100% natural products. However, most of the brands available in market use petroleum and silicone substances and contain preservatives. My aunt understood the issues I had and suggested me to try Himalaya Herbals Lip Care range. A combination of safety and satisfaction in a product was hard to find until I laid my hands on Himalaya’s herbal range of lip balms. I find it convenient and easy to trust a brand like Himalaya that has not only been in business for more than seven decades but also guarantees the goodness of Ayurveda owing to their commitment to herbal tradition. They made strides in products of personal care and wellness in 1999 and have ever since offered us the fruits of their constant. This time Himalaya has come up with a luxurious and glamorous range of lip balms which is sure to appeal to the youth. The Natural Soft Vanilla Lip Care is a luxurious lip balm which helps us combat dryness and further softens the lips. It has an anti-inflammatory characteristic which heals chapped and damaged lips. There is Rich Cocoa Butter Lip Care that will not only give extra protection but also make the lips naturally glossy. It shields the sensitive skin from environmental damage by repairing, healing and moisturising the lips. What you get in the end are soft and supple lips! On the other hand, the peach …

Bohemian Rhapsody in Mumbai – OOTD

March 15, 2016
Forever21 Kalapalette6

If you happen to be in Mumbai during the ‘winter season’ (and you belong to a colder region like Delhi) then all you need to do on your visit is soak up the warmth of the sun, put on some anti-tan lotion and feel boho! That’s exactly what I did in the month of January, when I was flown down to Mumbai to attend the launch of OPPO F1 smartphone. Post the media event, I took a mini break to experience the hospitality of The Resort and to bask in the glory of a beautiful beach. The Resort is situated in front of the Aksa Beach, which is quaint and much cleaner as opposed to the super-crowded beach life of Southern Mumbai (note : Juhu Beach & Bandstand). Now beachwear in India is a little different from the western world. We don’t get to flaunt a bikini (Mumbai is not eligible for even a sarong) and so the beachwear comes down to the breezy silhouettes in light fabrics. Forever21 in India is filled with a section that only speaks about bohemian flavours. Right from the earthy colour palette, fringe décors to the tribal embroidery and prints; one can find a variety of summer-friendly designs at F21. This Georgette midi dress in crisp white with minimal thread work is apt to keep the sweat away and makes one feel at leisure. So to keep up with my Bohemian spirit, I thought of doing an OOTD post and pose for the camera right on the Aksa Beach. Usually I either wrap up my hair in a bun, but for this added boho flavour, I decided to braid down my tresses in fine gypsy style. Now the look works apt in case you have long tresses, a beach to hit and don’t want the …
