My Trip To The City Of Lakes – Part 2



After exploring Nainital we thought of exploring the near by areas-which consist of famous  Lakes like Bhimtal, Sattal, Nakuchiatal ,it was a fun filled day.


Take A look



                                                               BHIMTAL

What makes Bhimtal more fascinating is the existence of a small island right in the middle of this multifarious fish-filled lake.The island aquarium on Bhimtal Lake is the single-most uniquely charming attraction here



                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Famous Island



Aquarium



NAUKUCHIATAL  –

 The nine-cornered lake,Naukuchiatal, the deepest lake around.
 Here you can indulge in some serious adventure sports like paragliding, parasailing, horse riding and trekking, besides just boating in the lake.





                                                                                     


                                                                                        SATTAL

Sattal means seven lakes because that’s what it is actually – a group of seven smaller lakes. These seven lakes converge at a point in the Mehragaon Valley to form the Sattal Lake, which incidentally is a paradise for birdwatchers and nature lovers due to its picture-perfect countenance. Bird watching, boating and simply taking languid nature walks can be best enjoyed here.

            Hope you all enjoyed the post as much as i enjoyed my trip.
Have A Smiley Day .









My Trip To The City Of Lakes – Nainital


I visited Nainital during my Easter Break with my family .
 It is a popular hill station in the Indian state of Uttarakhand and headquarters of Nainital district in the Kumaon foothills of the outer Himalayas., Nainital is set in a valley containing a pear-shaped lake, approximately two miles in circumference, and surrounded by mountains.





Famous Place For Sight Seening –

Nainital Lake – lt known as Naini Lake, it is situated in the heart of the city and it is owing to this lake that Nainital earned its name. The eye-shaped lake is a tourist hotspot and acts as a magnet for all those visiting the hill resort.





Naini Devi Temple – Nainital is believed to be one of the 64 Shaktipeeths, where one of the body parts of Goddess Sati fell, when Lord Shiva carried her body. In Nainital, the eyes (naina) of the Goddess are assumed to have fallen. 




St. John Church a church established in 1844 and is located on the north end of town ,a beautiful place to visit & pray.





Governor’s House– designed in the Victorian Gothic domestic style  by the architect F.W. Stevens. Originally built as the summer residence of the governor of the North West Province.

 Raj Bhavan is the official guest house for the governor of Uttarakhand and for visiting state guests.

         Famous Golfs Links inside Raj Bhawan




Snow View situated at an altitude of 2,270 m (7,450 ft) and located atop the Sher-ka-danda Ridge (north by north-east of the town centre), is easily reachable by cable car On a clear day, it offers spectacular views of the snowbound high Himalaya, including Nanda DeviTrisul, and Nanda Kot.

Cabel Car



Naini Peak also known as China or  Naina Peak is the highest peak in the town, From atop the peak, one can not only see a broad swath of the snow clad high Himalaya, but also obtain a panoramic view of Nainital town itself. 


                                                        Himalayan Range


 Dorothy’s Seat –  Tiffin Top also known as Dorothy’s Seat (7,520 ft)) on Ayarpatta hill. Dorothy’s Seat is a stonework picnic perch on Tiffin Top built as a memorial to a British Army Officer’s wife.



Pt. G.B. Pant High Altitude Zoo This Nainital zoo is a home to a variety of animals, namely, Himalayan black bear, Monkeys, Siberian Tiger, Leopard, Wolf, Palm civet cat, Rose ringed Parakeet, Silver Pheasants, Hill Fox, Ghoral, Sambhar and Barking Deer. 





What I like About Nainital –
Nainital is a small hill station surrounded by hills & famous English schools (Sherwood college,All Saints’ College)etc .Its a quite & calm place ,people are  grounded.
Its a perfect place for nature lovers or writers  or a quick gateway for weekend.
Perfect place for lovers to spend some quality  time with each other.

If One happens to visit Nainital & have time then one should take a complete lake tour which consist of famous near by Lakes like Bhimtal, Sattal, Nakuchiatal ,i will be covering them in my next post .














What’s In My Bag for Summers

Summer essentials for every gurl to beat  the summer heat .
Five basic summer essentials in my view point-

1-Deodorant/Antiperspirant
 Deodorants affect odor as well as prevent sweating by affecting sweat glands. Antiperspirants are typically applied to the underarms, while deodorants may also be used on feet and other areas in the form of body sprays.So go ahead and use deodorant to stay in good books of everyone .

2-Wipes

 Wipes refresh and nourish your skin plus removes dirt & sweat ,at once.

3- Compact Powder
I use compact powder before leaving the house as  it absorb  excess oil in my skin while providing a little coverage to my make up.
                                   

4-Sunglasses
 Sun glasses are a form of protective eye wear designed primarily to prevent bright sunlight and high-energy visible light from damaging or discomforting the eyes.Healthcare professionals recommend eye protection whenever the sun comes out to protect the eyes from ultraviolet radiation (UV) and blue light, which can cause several serious eye problems.

5- Sunblock –
It is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects some of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Skin-lightening products have sunscreen to protect lightened skin because light skin is more susceptible to sun damage than darker skin. A number of sunscreens have tanning powder to help the skin to darken or tan; however, tanning powder does not provide protection from UV rays.

If anything is missing in your bag..don’t worry ,its another excuse for us to go shopping-
So get your hands on the new launched summer haves –
And do share your must  have  summer products –
Enjoy the heat 🙂

VERSACE CRYSTAL NOIR-REVIEW


EAU DE TOILETTE
NATURAL SPRAY


Launched in 2004, Versace Crystal Noir is a rare balance of eccentricity and lavishness. The bite in the opening notes caused by accords of ginger, cardamom and spicy pepper lie well on heart of flowery gardenia, peony, refreshing coconut and the colorful African flower. As the dry down fades, distinct notes of powdery musk, soothing sandalwood and resinous amber take you on an olfactory revelation of sorts. The nose behind the fragrance is Antoine Lie; even the flacon that holds the essence of Crystal Noir is a work of art. Inspired by the multi-facets of diamonds, the flacon is made of garnet glass and is adorned by an equally elegant stopper; a creation to cherish. Let the mystery and the luminescence of Versace Crystal Noir sweep you off your feet.
Versace has eighty-one boutique locations around the world, in the U.S. and Canada specifically: New York City, Atlanta, Bal Harbour, Beverly Hills, Dallas, Houston, South Coast Plaza, Tysons Galleria and Vancouver.






Claims-

Packing 

The perfume bottle comes in a black plastic paper box with detailing about the perfume ,once you take out the perfume from the box,you can see purplish glass bottle which contains the perfume with the name written .



This is how you’ll see once the bottle cap is taken off..the cap is pretty with the versace logo                                                                 fixed on it.   
                                                     




My Experience  –

Crystal Noir by Versace is classified as a floral oriental with gardenia as the main floral note and a typical list of spicy oriental notes to complete the composition. It is intense and  not over whelming  voluptuous, femme fatale perfume dark, deep, sexy and best of all it is not at all powdery. 

I  prefer strong smell that lasts for 8-12 hours, and to my surprise Versace Crystal Noir full fills what i was looking for – it has a very strong smell which lingers for a day.The smell is so strong and refreshing   that people keep inquiring – what are you wearing & complimenting at the same time .
A must buy for people who work for 8-12 hours at a stretch & those who love strong smell.
I will surely buy this again.



Caution –
 Super strong smell sometimes becomes repulsive in small gathering.Avoid spraying large amount.


Pro’s
Long Lasting
Strong Smell
Non Powdery

Con’s
Super strong
Expensive for daily wear
