Hey, My Lovelies,

It has been so long since I posted a blog but there was not much happening during the lockdown! I finally broke the chain of not traveling for nine odd months when I took a trip to Bengaluru followed by Goa with my family and I cannot put into words how therapeutic it was. I was missing being on Staycations and I could not be happier with the place I chose for it.

Goldfinch Hotel Bengaluru was our abode for the two days that we were in Bengaluru and it was such an amazing experience for me and my family.

One of the neatest, classiest, and most regal boutique properties that I have been to in Bengaluru. With Boutique hotel comes a touch of personalised attention that you deserve, and we noticed how the staff at Goldfinch was ready to go all out to make their guests happy and address all their concerns.

Right from the check in to the checkout, it was all handled with a smiling face by the staff at the front desk, taking our calls for all the room service requests and making sure we get what we wanted within the shortest span of time added so much to the overall experience.

The multiple categories of rooms at Goldfinch make it possible for all kinds of travelers, be it budget or luxury to find accommodation that fits their requirements and pockets equally well. All the rooms at the property are equipped with all things necessary for the guests starting from the toiletries kit, to a big-screen television to bathrobes and slippers, a minibar, safe, a kettle, and the comfiest beds ever. I loved the jacuzzi in the huge suite and sat there for hours. The beauty of this property has my heart.

Now coming to the food, I can easily say that I had some of the most tastebud tingling food here starting from the yummiest dosas, pooris, and aloo ka parathas for breakfast to the world-class food served at Sana-Di-Ge.

Sana-Di-Ge serves some of the most flavorful food in the town and the specialty here is the seafood specially curated by the chef, made with the best, handpicked ingredients. Though I’m a vegetarian and seafood is not something that my family and I eat, we tried the north Indian cuisine and had the most amazing dal and chawal along with the tandoori mushrooms and some mouthwatering south Indian delicacies here.

G77 Bar – Looking for the tastiest mocktails, that perfect cuppa coffee, and some sweet delicacies like croissants, pastries, and cakes to go with it? G77 is where your search ends. This place is super cute, and a perfect evening hangout spot for you and your friends.

The Kabab Studio – Looking to satiate your hunger while overlooking the beauty of the city that is Bengaluru? Have some of the most scrumptious kababs from the elaborate BBQ menu and enjoy the panoramic views at Kabab Studio and you would want to come back for more. I was not that lucky as The Kabab Studio was shut while we were there however, I did see the place and will definitely visit here again coz they have reopened now.

This impeccable four-star property is equipped with a fully functional gym, a spa and a meeting room.

All these facilities make Goldfinch a property where you can not only enjoy an amazing staycation with your family but also stay on track with your fitness, relax and unwind at the spa and also come back here for those office conferences which can be arranged here at the meeting room with a view of the city.

I was elated to have stayed at the Goldfinch Hotel Bengaluru along with my parents and brother because we all loved the experience, warmth, and hospitality to the core and would definitely recommend Goldfinch for your next trip to Bengaluru coz I sure am going to stay there the next time that I visit.

Hi everyone, I am back with another fabulous Indian brand for you all. Established back in 1980, Vasu Healthcare is a prominent Indian company working towards the manufacturing & marketing of Phyto-Pharmaceutical Therapeutics, OTC, Personal Care, and Herbal Supplements. With a presence in more than 40 countries worldwide, 200+ products, and 30 awards and counting Vasu Healthcare will soon be a global leader in the healthcare sector.

Their wide range of products includes (but are not limited to) haircare, skincare, general care, men’s care, women’s care, bones and joint care, baby care, and respiratory care. I recently got an opportunity to try two of the top-rated products from their skincare range. The Aloe Vera Gel & the Facial Beauty Oil Age Revitalizing enriched with Kumkumadi Tailam.

Vasu Aloe Vera Gel – I was looking for an aloe vera gel to incorporate into my daily skincare & hair care routine and I happened to come across this aloe vera gel by Vasu. There could not be an aloe gel purer than this. This gel is 100% vegetarian, dermatologically tested for safety, and totally free of parabens and any kind of chemicals. There is a very faint fragrance which proves that there are no external elements included. The ingredients include – Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Triethylene Glycol & Disodium EDTA.

The cost for a 120 ml, very handy, and aloe leaf-shaped bottle is INR 180.

Vasu Age Revitalizing Facial Beauty Oil – When you’re nearing a certain age, well I won't disclose mine 😉, you always want to take care of your skin and keep it looking youthful, blemish, spots, and wrinkle-free and also wanting to retain that beautiful glow on your face. If you too are looking for a facial oil that will take care of all your worries and make you look as gorgeous as ever then this Facial Beauty Oil is something that you must have and include in your daily skincare regime.

Vasu Age Revitalizing Facial Beauty Oil is enriched with Kumkumadi Tailam that helps to boost collagen synthesis, improves skin elasticity, revitalizes and nourishes skin, evens your skin tone by reducing the spots, and also helps you reduce those fine lines and wrinkles that you do not want.

The application is extremely simple. You must wash your face, pat it dry and apply 2-3 drops on your face and massage it well. I make sure to treat my face with this oil every night before I sleep.

One thing to be mindful of is that this is an oil. So, if your skin is sensitive to oil application please consult your doctor/skincare expert first or do a patch test.

The cost of a 25ml bottle is INR 550. The expiry is 3 years from the date of manufacturing but I am sure you would have ordered your 2nd or 3rd bottle by then 😊

I enjoyed my experience using these products from a brand that I was not aware of and hence wanted to share with all you guys. I hope you will try them and if you do, do not miss sharing your results with me. Stay Safe!

Hey guys, I am so excited to introduce Aegte, an incredible luxury Hair & Skincare brand from India. I'm so glad that I came across a brand like Aegte that is all ecological, paraben-free, sulphate free and amalgamates natural ingredients to come up with products that are highly beneficial and very light on your skin and hair.

Aegte is a Danish word that stands for authentic. The products are formulated using the finest, ethically sourced ingredients. The founder of the brand Rupali Sharma commenced with her vision to bring her Grandmothers tricks, hacks and cures in front of the world and let everyone benefit out of them.

I tried three products from the very innovative hair care range namely –

Your hair starts to get shinier and glossier with just one wash. This shampoo conditions hair deeply and strengthens the roots of your hair and also helps you control hair loss. The scent is mild and very ayurvedic. You can feel the natural ingredients working on your hair.

I took some oil in a glass bowl, nicely warmed it up and applied it from the roots to the tip of my hair. This healthy roots hair oil helps in acceleration of hair growth, unclogs your hair follicles, delays the growth of grey hair, and helps control hair loss too. I have been using it for some time now and I can feel my hair getting stronger with each application.

Made with ingredients like Onion Oil, Ginger Extract, Curry Leaf Extract, Radish Root Extract, Brahmi, Shikakai, Hibiscus, Amla, Jatamansi, Vitamin E, Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Aqua, Glycerin & Stearic Acid. This mask is also safe to be applied on your scalp along with the length of your hair. Consistent usage of Aegte hair growth mask has made my hair silkier, smoother and much stronger.

I’m so glad to have used all these three products by Aegte and would definitely recommend that you try them if you’re looking to get stronger, healthier, smoother hair using all-natural products formulated using grandma’s nuskhas. I myself can’t wait to try the skincare range of Aegte coz this shampoo, oil & mask have worked wonders for my hair.
