Delhi to Jaipur: The Long Weekend getaway!

With a quarter of 2017 already gone by, it is now time to start planning for the upcoming long weekends in 2017, since there arenโ€™t too many left anyway, and before we know it, the year might just end. So bring out those planners and start planning. The best thing to do on a long weekend is to go to a tourist place near to where you live, ideally at a driveable distance. I find driving down to some place more enjoyable than taking a flight, especially when you are out to enjoy a long weekend with family or friends. You can make stopovers at your favorite local restaurants or dhabas, stop for tea breaks and enjoy the scenic views from the car while listening to your favorite songs.

Floral dress & Mumbai trip

Raise your hands, Mumbai people!

Well, I’m an out and out Delhiite, and there’s no place quite like Delhi for me, and I know the quintessential Delhi- Mumbai ‘My City is Better Than Yours’ war of words going about all the time. But honestly, for me and my family, Mumbai has taken from us more than it has given back to us. I wouldn’t get into the details, but I just can’t bring myselfย  to like Mumbai much. No, I don’t hate it. Nevertheless, professional commitments take me to Mumbai quite often, and slowly but steadily, I’m warming up to the city again. ๐Ÿ™‚

Two sights that you never see in Delhi- beach and beach-side-greenery (not sure if the ones below are palm trees ๐Ÿ˜› )

Travel Diary: Rishikesh

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, I went out for a teenie-weenie break with my gang of friends. Everyone’s working, and since we had to come back by sunday night for everyone to resume office on Monday morning, we decided to travel down to Rishikesh ๐Ÿ™‚ It is one of the best options we have for a quick weekend getaway from Delhi by road.

We travelled by a private mini-bus, and stayed in Camp 5 Elements, a private beach-like camp, surrounded by the mountains on all sides, with the Ganges flowing in between. ‘Bliss’ is the best way to describe the whole experience!

Camp 5 Elements is a part of Leisure Hotels. It is basically a small, secluded, white sand-beach on which they have set-up a few tents for people to stay in. No electricity! {carry an extra mobile phone with you}. At night, they give you a solar-charged lamp each for you to go to the washrooms, etc. The wash-rooms are also clean and hygienic, except, there’s no water in the restrooms ๐Ÿ˜› {you have to use paper and sand, will leave things to your imagination here}. They do have running tap water in the wash-basins and bathroom. They have nice and clean bedding, and good food {both vegetarian and non-vegetarian}. Overall, we had a wonderful experience staying there! They offer trekking, rappelling, rafting, etc. for the adventurous souls!

Now for the pics ๐Ÿ™‚

Cafe Zo, Hauz Khas Village: Review

Helloooo people!

Like we all know, this blog is being written by a girl who is crazy about food, apart from her makeup! And what better way to start food trails here than to review my favorite place to eat-out in! Today I’m going to review my super favorite ‘Cafe Zo’ which is located amidst the scenic and always buzzing with youth and energy- Hauz Khas Village in the heart of South Delhi.

The cafe has super cool, vintage appeal to it- from the worn out chairs to the dim lighting and huge chandeliers, everything appeals my taste the minute I enter inside. One side of the cafe has huge windows, outside which are huge trees, so you get a lush view, with birds and squirrels popping in and out. Occasionally, you may spot a peacock too ๐Ÿ˜€ .

Heels & Coffee Beans: First post, and why we are here!

Hello everyone!

So this is officially the first post on Heels & Coffee Beans, and I’d like to whole heartedly welcome you all to this new Blog of mine, after The Indian Beauty Blog. Having already running a beauty blog for almost 2 years now (yes, time flies, and how!!!), I really wanted to share with you all some other aspects of my life too. The Indian Beauty Blog is going to be only up for ‘beauty’ posts from now, and everything else, like my foodie trails, travel, fashion, lifestyle, etc. will come on over here now, coz these do make up for a large part of my life. I had this domain with me since a few weeks already, but it is only now that I’m getting to work here.
