Delhi Road Trip Ideas – Go Self Drive

With the receding rains and the landscapes still fresh, now is a good time to enjoy some weekend drives and trips out of Delhi. With so much natural beauty and heritage available to experience in nearby states, people living in the national capital have plenty of options to visit. A trip can be planned in a jiffy – a self-driving car app and a thirst for adventure and discovery are enough. Here are some top recommendations.

Mathura – Vrindavan – Agra

Mathura is one of the most significant places of Hinduism. The drive from Delhi is a 3-hour route along the Taj Expressway and the sacred city is worlds apart from the cosmopolitan, fast-paced city. The main attractions of Mathura are its temples and old neighbourhoods. The Krishna Janmabhoomi is a complex of multiple holy sites built around what is believed is the birthplace of Lord Krishna. The Vishram Ghat is another important site, located on the banks of the Yamuna.

Nearby Vrindavan town has many attractions that will fascinate culture enthusiasts. Travellers here can observe the quintessential Hindu architecture. Some of the famous landmarks include the Madan Mohan Temple, the Prem Mandir and the Sri Radha Raman Temple.

With Agra just 57 km away from Mathura, it is absolutely worth the extra drive. The resplendent architecture and scale of the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort are the main attractions here, along with the buzzing evening market scenes and the spicy street food.

Corbett National Park

Away from the crowds and the buildings, Corbett National Park is a wild escapade into the deepest wildernesses of Northern India. Nature photographers would rejoice at the landscapes that await them in India’s oldest national park – grasslands and thick forests juxtaposed with low hills. One can enjoy safaris on elephant-back or in a jeep. The most famous resident here is the tiger and the place is also famous for the wild pachyderm herds that roam about. Birds found here include a variety of raptors and jungle fowl. Crocodiles and leopards are also main predators in this picturesque, diverse and fragile ecosystem.

The 270-km road trip from Delhi is an exciting experience as one leaves behind the endless, industrial plains and heads into the misty foothills and forests of Uttarakhand.

Other popular trips from Delhi include Alwar in Rajasthan. The town is famous for its architecture – prominent sites here include the City Palace and the Alwar Fort. The 160-year-old Fairy Queen locomotive is another treasured attraction here.

Dharamshala is a beautiful 10-hour drive into the hills of Himachal – a perfect solution for those looking for a bohemian respite. The Tibetan diaspora here adds another fascinating cultural element to the town, which is also a good base for treks.

To enjoy these trips to the fullest, informed travellers are choosing to rent self-drive cars in Delhi rather than traditional cabs. They get to travel in freedom and privacy, making stops and detours as they wish. Platforms like Zoomcar offer a wide range of vehicle options and 24/7 on-road support so people can enjoy the trip in comfort and security.

Trescho Perfumes – For you and your loved ones

Hey Peeps! How have you been? I am feeling so fresh and relaxed today. I have always been a bargain hunter and try to find the best in my budget. Recently, I got introduced to Trescho Perfumes. You won’t believe I am so obsessed with their perfumes that I have got a second one as well.

The perfumes I tried from Trescho

  1. Blue Girl by Trescho
  2. Florida – Rose essence by Trescho

Florida – Rose essence by Trescho Perfumes

Trescho Perfumes- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian fashion & lifestyle blogger

I still can’t forget how refreshing this perfume was when I opened the bottle for the first time. It felt like I was in a rose garden. I am allergic to strong fragrance so prefer natural fragrance in my perfumes.

But-but-but, whatever it is I can never stop buying a new perfume and carrying the misty aroma of heaven. My perfumes are the unseen accessories I always carry.

The fragrance of the perfume is very mild and rosy. I found it perfect for everyday use. Also, it can be an amazing gifting idea as well. I could break down the aroma as –

  • Top Note – Rose, Peony, Cassis, Orange Blossom, Bergamot
  • Middle Note – Jasmine, Vanilla, Peach, Litchi
  • Base Note – Patchouli, Sandalwood, Caramel

 

Product description

 According to the brand

A sweet, fruity rose accord, featuring cassis (black currant) leaves and fruit, pear, mango, melon, cedar, and musk. A pure summer fragrance, reminiscent of the roses and fruits of summer. is derived from the heart of the original and its signature notes of orange blossom, complemented by rose petals.

 

The composition begins with a combination of orange blossom, silky rose petals and peony. The heart continues with accords of rose nectar, fruity nuances, jasmine and vanilla. The base tops it all with a woody accord of patchouli and sandalwood.

The packaging of Florida – Rose Essence

Trescho Perfumes- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian fashion & lifestyle blogger

It is elegantly packaged in a baby pink box. Girly, isn’t it? The bottle looks elegant with a crystal styled cap over it. The cap is my favourite part of the bottle and makes it look luxurious. Even though I am a blue colour perfume bottle collector, basically. I have fallen for a pink packaging this time.

My rating

9/10 

Pros

  • It’s available online
  • A good option for gifting
  • Quite affordable
  • Lasts long

Cons

I could not find any.

Blue Girl by Trescho

Trescho Perfumes- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian fashion & lifestyle blogger

So I gifted it to a friend who loves Jasmine and she actually liked it. It’s all about perspective and preference. While looking at the blue colour I always assume it to be aqua. If you agree with floral aroma with an overtone of Jasmine, go for it. It’s a light floral perfume for day wear.

  • Top Note – Floral
  • Middle Note – Fresh Fruits
  • Base Note – Fresh Lilies

My Rating

8/10

Pros:

  • Available online
  • Affordable
  • Can be used for daily wear
  • Good for gifting

Cons

  • I am allergic to such smell

The packaging of Blue Girl by Trescho Perfumes

Trescho Perfumes- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian fashion & lifestyle blogger

The packaging is very sleek and can be carried in a big clutch as well.  The colour is what attracted me the most. I already told you I am a blue bottle collector.

Product description

According to the brand

Blue Girl is Truly a Feminine Fragrance with Special Notes of Fresh Flowers, A Touch of Lily & Ends with a soothing note that will keep you fresh all day long. Perfect Choice for All Women.

Wonderla Resort : The Perfect Couple Staycation Destination in Bangalore

Who hasn’t heard of or rather been to, The Wonderla Theme Park, off Mysore road in Bangalore? However, have you experienced the welcoming Wonderla Resort to date? It became operational in 2012 and has been around for the last six years. The sprawling property affords a unique blend of exhilarating and laid back experience for couples, families or groups just a short ride off the city.

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

An Overdue Vacation

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

We have a micro nuclear family in Bangalore with just the husband and I. Being in different fields, It gets pretty difficult to coordinate our vacations. I had recently been to an Ooty vacation but with my blogger friends whereas Sid keeps travelling on and off for work. Frankly, the last vacation we had taken together was way back in January 2018!

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

It was on our minds that we got to take at least a day off, away from the city traffic and noise, together. When I got to know of the Wonderla Resort, we didn’t over think it and grabbed the opportunity.

The Arrival at Wonderla Resort

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

The Resort is located at a distance of almost 16 km from the Mysore Road & Nice Road Junction. You could easily spot the theme park from the main road by probably the tallest Ferris Wheel in India. We arrived there by 10:30 am, got checked in within five minutes and were ushered into our rooms on the 6th floor.

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

Boy, was it a room with a view! The windows opened straight out to the same Ferris Wheel and the lush green environs around Mysore Road. I must admit, the room was neatly laid out and spacious with the standard fare such as an electric kettle, electronic locker, towels and bath accessories you would expect from a 4 Star Resort.

The Facilities

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

Well, we were in Wonderla and not in any particular mood to sit back and relax in mid-morning and opted to take a tour of the resort instead. In the ground floor, just behind the reception area, a pretty large pool invites you. The pool is temperature controlled at 26 C and has a cordoned off, shallow kids pool as well.

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

Overlooking the pool is a small patio for your beverage breaks. Adjoining that is a swanky pub which was pretty empty as we had chosen a weekday for our visit.  The expansive restaurant shares the same floor and was tastefully decorated in a neo-traditional style.

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

 

The first floor houses the gym, the game room, and conference rooms. The gym was spick and span and Sid couldn’t resist trying out a few of the machines over there. The Game Room houses an air hockey unit, a pool table, a foosball table, and a few other knick-knacks.  In addition to these, there is a play section for young kids on the same floor as well.

The Food

It was a blazing sunny day and we took a short dip in the pool to whip up an appetite. Post that, we dropped into the restaurant at around 1:30 pm. You could either order a la carte or from a set menu (a part of the package).

In the package, you get to choose from a couple of soups, starters, main course gravies, rice dishes, Indian breads along with desserts. If you are not finicky, you’ll be ok with the options both in veg and non-veg dishes. To top it, the main course tasted pretty decent with Sid having ordered Chicken Biryani and me sticking to my all time favourite mutton.

The Wonderla Theme Park

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

We did venture out to the actual theme park, though for just over a couple of hours. As I have mentioned earlier, It was a pretty bright day and we stuck to the water rides. Well, who doesn’t love their water rides! Sadly, we don’t have snaps as we had to place our phones and cameras in the electronic locker (A well thought out feature). Signing off, we were pretty disappointed as the rain dance had been cancelled for the day!

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

The Evening

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

We came back to the resort when the pool area was shaded and just couldn’t resist jumping in once again. While taking a leisurely dip we were served tea by the poolside with pakodas.  It wasn’t martini by the poolside, but we did relish our chai pakodas with the setting Sun.

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

Coming back to the room, the view from the window was still breathtaking with the glittering lights of the Ferris Wheel at a distance.  Since both of us had to work the next day, we checked out at around 7:30 pm and were back home by a bit over 9 pm.

Wonder la review- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian travel blogger

To sum it up, it was a short but sweet and memorable vacation or as they say, a Staycation; You get your fair share of revelry and relaxation and are back on your feet quickly for the daily grind.

Untill the next time! Stay fabulous!

 

Designer Sarees- Why limit yourself to big designers?

Hey Peeps! The festive season is around the corners and I have started getting a lot of queries about the current trend, where to buy, what to buy and how to buy designer sarees? I have always promised you guys that I will come up with affordable fashion. And here I come with another designer saree look.

Designer saree blog- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian fashion blogger

Tips to buy affordable designer sarees

  1. Look for deals at designer saree stores(online/offline)
  2. Don’t limit your choice to famous designers.
  3. Choose classic colours, they always look royal and expensive.
  4. Instagram sellers are doing an amazing job. I bought this saree including many more by connecting with designers via Instagram.
  5. If nothing else comes to your mind go for Bollywood replicas.

Designer Saree with Camera Motif

Designer saree blog- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian fashion blogger

I found this saree on Instagram page known as @kookookansi and I couldn’t resist myself from trying this saree. The saree has my favourite motif- CAMERA on it. Today I am everything because of writing and photos. Cameras hold a special place in my heart. When I saw this saree for the first time, I was in love with the saree. This saree has everything which defines my personality and likes. Out of all the colours in this world, greys and whites are my favourites. Off-white saree has always been a classic and looks graceful on any woman.

How did I style my saree?

Designer saree blog- Namrata- Bangalore based Indian fashion blogger

Instead of tucking the saree after pleating, I left the other half loose. I prefer pleats on pallu so made them neatly. I am not a regular saree person so instead of getting a blouse stitched, I have used a crop top. To complete the look, I tied the hair to a ponytail and creates a small messy bun.

P.S. My hair is too short for a designer bun.

To accessorize the saree, I am wearing a dark gold beaded necklace and floral white earrings. I have purposefully tried a melange of accessories instead of wearing matching jewelry. If you don’t have a saree waist chain, you can wear a long necklace or choker just like me.

Sinful Chocolate Wax – YLG Salon

Hey Peeps! I am back with a review of one more service that I undertook from YLG Salon. It was the Chocolate Wax this time. Who doesn’t love chocolate? Gone is the time when chocolate is the cause of all skin issues. We do chocolate facial, waxing and what not. Think about the delicious chocolate smell wafting as you enjoy your facial or waxing! Yummmmm!!

 

Chocolate Wax

Chocolate wax became quite famous in the last few years after its nourishing and emollient properties were discovered. From being something that was the root cause of all problems, it went to being a solution. The above-mentioned properties make it perfect for waxing since it provides ample protection after waxing.

 

Why Chocolate Wax?

The ingredients in the Chocolate Wax kit can vary depending on the brand but the main ingredient is chocolate which is the cocoa beans. It is quite obvious by the deliciousness you can inhale. It can also contain almond oil, glycerin, soya bean oils and cocoa beans. If you still have doubts and have not yet tried out this delicious waxing, this is for you.

  • The vitamins and minerals present in the ingredients leave your skin smooth and silky.
  • Your skin glows after a waxing session. And yes! You can use it on your face without having to worry about repercussions.
  • Chocolate heats at just the right temperature, hence no blistering and rashes.
  • Bye Bye! Ingrown hair. The texture of chocolate covers every strand of hair and removing it; Hence no ingrown hair.
  • The exfoliating properties effectively remove tan much better than the usual wax.
  • Painless waxing due to the emollient properties.

Painless waxing with Chocolate Wax

This time for my regular waxing session, I decided to go with Chocolate Wax. You could have been waxing for decades but the pain is unavoidable. But it is not the case with chocolate wax. I mean it was literally painless. I could really relax into the waxing with the smell of chocolate relaxing me. It was that awesome. I did tell you my skin was getting tanned after this harsh summer. After my waxing, my skin tan was greatly removed. And my skin practically glowed. No sign of broken hair just smooth skin devoid of any hair. Even those teeny tiny ones. And as usual, the service provided by the professionals at the YLG Salon was just exceptional.

I did do a Hair Spa when I was there the last time. Click here to read more about my Hair Spa experience.

 

Magic Mythic Oil Spa – YLG Salon

Hey Peeps! By now you would have known how much I love YLG salon and how I prefer them for my trivial and elaborate beauty needs. They have been my go-to salon for quite a long time.  My hair needed some good pampering after quite a beating during summer. My hair was losing its shine and starting to look limp. So, I decided to indulge in the Magic Mythic Oil Spa.

Click here for more services I availed in YLG Salon

Magic Mythic Oil Spa

In Magic Mythic Oil Spa they use a combination of essential oils to give the hair much needed moisture and strength. Avocado oil, Grape Seed Oil, Argan Oil and a dash of glycerin complete the mix of oil they use in the hair spa.

 

Avocado Oil is rich in antioxidants like Vitamin E and B which repair damaged hair and promote hair growth. It has the ability to penetrate the scalp and also the hair strands easily. Also, the monounsaturated fatty acids in the avocado oil nourish the hair strands and strengthen them.

 

Grape Seed Oil is lighter than coconut oil and olive oil leaving your hair moisturized without being sticky and greasy. Moreover, the ability to lock in moisture makes it perfect for dry and brittle hair by smoothening down the cuticles and removing frizz.

 

Argan Oil otherwise called liquid gold is your ideal hair conditioner if you want to make your hair silky, shiny, soft and strong. It is rich in fatty acids and Vitamin E which makes it the perfect solution for split ends.

 

Sleek and Shiny Hair with Magic Mythic Oil Spa

The hair spa was a positively relaxing experience for me. The staff were quite talented and made the experience very pleasurable for me. The spa is indeed magic and I could find an instant improvement in my hair texture. It was like my hair has turned silkier, shinier and stronger. Moreover, the frizzy and brittle nature of my hair was gone. Additionally, it was a sleek curtain of hair. Rest assured I am going back for the Magic Mythic Oil Spa.

 

The spa is the first step in restoring my hair back to its previous self. My next treatment will give a voluminous boost and handle hair fall.

 

Battling the effects of skin ageing? Get this Skin Treatment at ALMA Q

Hey Peeps! Everyone battles skin ageing in some format; be it the loss of collagen or hyperpigmentation or dull skin or wrinkles. If you are over 30, then you would have noticed laughter lines, fine lines and wrinkles in your forehead already. If you are over 25, you should have started on anti-ageing regimens. Signs of ageing include loss of skin elasticity, dry skin, peeling skin, hyperpigmentation etc. If you start looking into these issues early on, you can handle them yourself but in most cases, you would have to go for laser skin treatment to get them under control.

 

What is Skin ageing

Skin ageing though looks like an easy enough age-related issue, it is definitely not all that. It is a complex process influenced by various internal and external factors. These factors change the skin structure, and also affects the layers in the skin. Loosening of skin, pigmentation and dull skin are an essential part of the ageing process which you cannot battle.

 

Signs of skin ageing can be pronounced over time and that is when you need to approach a dermatologist for the appropriate solution.

 

Solution to All your Skin Problems  (Introduction to the brand)

Alma-Q has the ideal solution to all your skin problems due to ageing. They have a global presence and has around 25 years of experience in this area. Their laser treatments help to restore the radiance that you lost. Not only that it also removes the pigmentation and helps you get back your crystal clear skin. Isn’t that what everyone wants no matter the age?

 

If you are like me, every new wrinkle is going to freak you out. Everything is alright with ageing gracefully; But facing wrinkles and age lines is a tough matter. With Alma-Q laser skin treatment, you can get rid of your wrinkles, age lines as well as skin laxity. Not only that it can also treat your vascular and skin pigmentation.

With Alma-Q you can withstand the passage of time and retain your youthful appearance.  Alma-Q offers skin treatment for the following skin problems.

Amla Q skin treatment- Namrata- Bangalore based India fashion & lifestyle blogger

Treatments

Hyperpigmentation

Most of us suffer from uneven pigmentation due to hormonal changes as we age particularly over the age of 30. ALMA-Q’s switched laser treatment clears the skin of pigmentation by focusing on the melanin in the darkened skin, clearing every one of its layers resulting in a clear skin. The skin treatment is safe and efficient for all skin types, from pale to dark skin.

Skin Rejuvenation

As we age, you can see and freak over new wrinkles and fine lines on our skin. The sun exposure causes sun spots and uneven skin tone. Even our smooth and supple skin would lose its laxity. ALMA-Q’s skin remodelling treatments restore adult skin and uncover smoother, vibrant and younger looking skin. The treatments are perfect for all skin types and also delicate and fragile regions.

 

Varicose and Spider Veins

With age comes veins and spider veins which cannot be avoided. The vascular skin treatment provided by ALMA-Q’s switched laser helps to close the veins which in turns reduces and in some cases eliminate the appearance of the spider veins. The result is smooth and clear skin. Don’t tell me that does wonders for your confidence!

 

Tattoo Removal

Tattoos are normally a well thought out affair but it can be a spur of the moment thing which you suddenly decided as a group. I am sure you can relate to it. ALMA-Q’s laser tattoo removal treatment uses a combination of different wavelengths to remove unwanted tattoos even those multi-coloured ones. The different wavelengths target the different colours and break the ink particles revealing your clear skin with minimal to no scarring.

Advantages of Alma-Q Switch

Alma-Q switch has some definite advantages above the other laser treatments I have read about. Few important features I noted are:

  • Less treatment time and completely painless.
  • Suitable for everyone with any skin complexion, type and even sensitive areas.
  • Very accurate and highly efficient and clearing the skin from within.
  • It is a combined treatment for various issues which works well for most of us battling skin issues on a daily basis.

 

One of the most important points that I noticed and got me going was that it is accredited by the FDA.

 

The Technology

 

Alma-Q uses cutting-edge technologies in your skin treatment to make your experience painless and for natural-looking results.

 

The high-powered Q-switched laser which is the best skin treatment when it comes to removing pigmentation and tattoo removal. Also, it helps combat the signs of ageing like wrinkles.

 

Q-switched Nd: YAG laser technology delivers a light energy to the skin using a fractional ablative method. By this way, the affected area is treated without harming your skin.

 

Long-Pulsed Nd: YAG laser uses a deep penetrating laser technology to heal the broken superficial and deep veins.

 

Quasi-Long Pulsed Nd: YAG laser treats skin blemishes and also spider veins. The ultra-short laser pulses target tiny blood vessels. It also boosts the collagen and tightens the skin.

 

My Experience

Like everyone I also battle skin issues; while they are not really major, I have always been concerned about my skin as I approach the big 3. When I was offered a chance to try out their laser treatments I decided to go for the skin rejuvenation.

 

I was blown away by the results. My skin is much brighter and the invisible lines are really invisible now. My skin is much smoother and I can feel that the results are not just plainly superficial. While it would take time to see how long this lasts, for now, I am very happy with the result. Not only that I can see my skin supple and firm which is a clear indication of an increase in collagen. The treatment was quick and completely painless. And the skin looks natural, not like I have got some treatment for my skin. All together I am very happy I decided to go for the laser skin treatment.

Brief on Charma, Chirag Hospital

Talking about where I got it done; it was in Charma, a skin care clinic attached to Chirag Hospital. Not only can you get the laser skin treatment, you can also hair, nail and cosmetology issues treated there. Coming to cosmetology which is what we need, they do chemical peeling, permanent and temporary hair reduction, excessive sweating, wrinkles treatment and mole removal.

 

My experience with Paytm

Hey Peeps! How have you been? I usually don’t talk much about my personal life much. My love for fashion keeps me engaged. But, a lot of you have requested me to review a few App and gadgets. Being a B.E. graduate, I have always loved technology and Apps. I love how they make our lives easier and better every day. Today I shall be talking about booking Paytm train tickets.  I actually use Paytm for a lot of things like making small payments, paying electricity bills, buying gadgets etc.

If you guys remember I had taken a train for my last Alleppey trip. That’s when I found this app useful for train tickets too. I discovered that making railway reservations on the Paytm App is easy.

Recently my parents wanted to travel locally from my hometown Darbhanga to Patna. We don’t have the flights option and they are not technology friendly. So, I decided to book tickets for them through Paytm.  And suddenly it struck my mind why not teach my parent to use the App and book train tickets through Paytm.

The youthfulness of our skin depends on us; How we take care of our skin? How much are the outside forces in play? Everything including our exposure to the sun, diet, lifestyle, bad habits etc decide how early our skin ages. It’s very important that we take steps to take care of our skin. As we age the outer layer of the skin thins leaving the skin translucent. This is when pigmented spots called the dark spots, appear on the skin. Also, the skin loses its elasticity when the connective tissue loses its strength.
