Hyderabad has many such gems that draw tourists by the thousands every year. One such place housed the famous Koh-i-noor and Hope Diamonds at a time and is still standing strong and basking in the glory of numerous stories, intricate designs and amazing architecture; Golconda Fort. I have been to the place multiple times but never climbed up the fort. When a friend of mine from Bangalore visited recently, I finally decided to do it as she was really keen on it.
We hired one of Telangana Tourism Guide at the entrance, to hear all the interesting, mesmerizing stories from history. Entering the citadel premises, the first sight that will greet you is the number of visitors clapping underneath the dome, trying to simulate the warning system that the fort used. The warning clap under the dome could alert the troops atop the fortress, such is the marvel of the design and acoustics.
Moving ahead I was amazed by the soldiers Barracks. They sure do look grim, standing strong through centuries but my eyes and ofcourse the camera loved this place a lot.
The whole climb offered amazing, picturesque view of not only the fort but also the city surrounding it. And lucky for us the weather was beautiful too! On the top of the fort is the Baradari Place. This is two storied building with open terrace on the top, where Kings used to enjoy the surrounding view of the countryside.
We then got back down in time to visit the the Light and Sound Show, which was just amazing about 4 years back when I saw it. So, I was really excited for my friend to witness the same but alas I was a tad bit too disappointed with it this time and left the show in the middle. Overall it was a nice visit, make sure you pick the day carefully as the heat can destroy an otherwise amazing experience.
See you soon guys..
The month of Ramadan, the month of Prayer and giving is one of my favourite times of the year to visit the Historical and Architectural beauty of the city, CharMinar. Surrounded by the energy and life of the festivities, the monument glows like you would have never seen before. The eyes of the people from across the city, who walk down these lanes shine brighter than the brightest of the lights around. Continue reading “Life & Lights: CharMinar!!”
All I knew or I thought I knew about VLCC before attending their event one day was that VLCC is a very well known health and wellness brand. Little did I knew that they have mastered the Beauty line as well. I was really excited to attend the event VLCC hosted in Hyderabad where they talked about all their services and more importantly the experts answered all our health, wellness and beauty queries. I am sure all of us have come across VLCC, but I am going to tell you some of the cooler and lesser known beauty services provided by the brand and also will share the reviews of the products that we received at the event.

Hi guys, I am back with a very very different look this time with Liberent in a classy, sexy, elegant & chic Lehenga. There are so many weddings & parties happening all the year round in our circles. Mehendi, Haldi, Sangeet, Parties, Fashion weeks, etc. etc. Most of the times we practically get away with the easy picks (western wear, suits and sarees) but some occasions demand a really elaborate couture and styling.
With so many functions coming up every now and then to attend in our busy lives, there is hardly time to be spent on getting the right Lehenga custom made from scratch and then patiently wait for it to be delivered. Neither would you want to spend your hard earned money to buy outfits that we hardly ever wear after the very occasion we buy them for. Renting is coming to rescue us from all those problems.
They have so many options to choose from, custom fit outfits as per your measurements, free home delivery and pick up, Liberent has made renting so much more easy and fun. And you can rock beautiful, gorgeous outfits on every occasion without ever worrying about your pocket. I got this beautiful gold & silver embroidered lehenga in this eye popping velvet blue and I fell so in love with it. As the lehenga was so bold and edgy I wanted to keep it simple with the top. So I added on a lace embroidered black top to get all focus to the shining beauty. I kept the whole look very simple, with a braid and black heels.
I loved how the whole look turned out with this gorgeous attire. Thanking you so much Liberent for having this wonderful piece in your stash which is no less than Haute Couture. (And they were too sweet to send a back up dress too :* :* )
