Head to Bir for a Life Changing Travel Experience!

Travelling to Bir, Himachal Pradesh was something my sister and I had been planning, since months. As soon as my exams ended, we packed our bags, booked our tickets and headed to the bus station to catch an overnight bus till Palampur. We left from our house feeling proud because we didn't forget anything but the one thing which we didn't keep a check on, was the time. After reaching the bus station we were frantically running everywhere to find our bus. Being the clumsy girl that I am, I even managed to fall badly and bruise my knees. But in the end, we tracked down the bus and everything worked out for us.

How to Reach
We took a cab from Palampur to Bir and it took us 45 minutes to reach but if you're planning to go from Delhi, you can take a bus. On the way back, we took the Himsulta Volvo from upper Bir and the bus dropped us to I.S.B.T Kashmiri Gate. From Delhi to Bir it will take you approximately 12 hours in the bus. I would suggest, take an overnight bus because you won't get to know where the time passed. The bus stops at every station for 5 minutes and at three to four places for dinner/lunch/breakfast and tea breaks.

Where We Stayed
Colonel's Resort was the resort where I stayed for three days. As soon as I entered, I fell in love with the property. The resort has an overlooking view of the mountains and so much of greenery that you'll feel like staying outside the entire time. The resort has 15 rooms, tents for camping, a dining area with a verandah, a yoga room and a huge parking space.

What took my heart away was the adorable pets of the resort. This one is a three year old Cocker Spaniel called Dash. For those who don't know this about me, I'm a hardcore cat lover but by the end of three days, I became very fond of Dash. I used to start my day by playing with him and sleep, only after I had spent a good amount of time with him.
Apart from Dash, Colonel's Resort is home to a Labrador called Frisky and two horses named Namta and Noorie. Oh, and I'm pretty sure I spotted some exotic species of worms and birds right outside my room.
One can easily pass his time in this resort by playing with these animals. They give so much of love to a person that you'll completely forget all of your problems.

L.A.Girl Pro Conceal HD Product Review

There was a time when makeup was never on my shopping list. But then I hit the phase when after trying makeup just one time, I couldn't let go of it. Now for somebody like me who has heavy bags under her eyes at all times, using a concealer is must. After trying on a million concealers, I came across the L.A. Girl Pro Concealer. While ordering this brand from Nykaa I was pretty skeptical because I had never used it before but I really liked the packaging and the size of the concealer, so I confirmed my order anyway.

The process to use it is pretty simple-
All you have to do is give the bottle a little squeeze and instantly some amount of concealer will come out on the brush. Gently apply some amount of it on the needed areas like the under eye, forehead, upper lips etc.
Some people also use it on their neck to even the skin tone but I just find it super weird to use the concealer on any place except the face.
L.A. Girl's concealer brush is pretty soft and smooth so the concealer can be applied very easily. And spreading it on the face is no task as it's texture is creamy.
I'ts very important to use a good primer before applying this concealer otherwise the effect won't be visible. Make sure that after applying the concealer, you're blending it properly otherwise you'll end up looking like a jaundice patient. (The experience my sister and I had the first time we used it!)

The process to use it is pretty simple. All you have to do is squeeze the bottle a little and some amount of concealer will come out on the brush. Gently apply some amount of it on the needed areas like the under eye, forehead, upper lips etc. (Some people also use it on their neck!)
I had purchased the shade Warm Honey, which was slightly darker than my skin tone. Last time I bought a shade lighter than my skin tone, I ended up looking like a ghost. Warm Honey was the perfect choice because all the lines and uneven color was gone, giving my face the texture I always wanted. I'm hooked to this concealer now and you will be too once you use it!
There are 24 shades in the Pro Concealer so no matter which skin tone you have, you will find the right concealer.

Price- INR 535

The Face Shop Brightening Face Mask Review

To be honest with you all, I've never been a lover of face masks. I feel a face pack is much better than a face mask as you can choose the quantity. But one evening while I was adding makeup to my cart on Nykaa, I saw the brand- The Face Shop listed in the top brands. After reading all the reviews and stalking the brand's official Instagram page, (background knowledge is everything) I added their Brightening Face Mask to my cart.

Price- Rs. 150

Every time I shop online, I have this excited feeling going on till the time I don't get my products. It's not just there when I'm trying something new but also when I'm ordering things that I use everyday. After ordering the face mask, I was literally running towards the door every time I heard the doorbell ring. 
When the product arrived, it was rolled in bubble wrap. Next morning, I evened my skin tone by using a toner after which I tore the package and put the face mask on my face. The smell of this face mask resembled that of the shampoo my hair cutter uses every time I pay him a visit. Because this face mask smells so good, you will want to put it on your face again and again. 

The process is pretty simple. All you have to do is peel the film off and then spread the mask on your face. Adjust it properly from the eyes to the nose. Keep it like that for 10-20 minutes and then tap lightly to absorb the leftovers of the mask
I could see the difference on my face right away. All the uneven texture was gone and my face had suddenly lit up. Oh, and on the plus side, my face smelled SO good after that. The face mask made me feel fresh and love my face. This is a must try for all those who feel that dirt and dust stick on their faces, every time they step out of the house.
