Makeup Artist Shruti Kukreja Is Taking Beauty World By The Storm And How.

The easiest way to transform yourself is through makeup. It is the best way to express yourself. And with the festive season right around the corner, a new makeup look is just what you need.

Shruti Kukreja is here to guide you to achieve the perfect base for a festive glow and that radiant lit-from-within look. Diwali is the time of the year to have fun with your makeup. Shruti Kukreja with her solid portfolio and boundless creativity is here to teach you how to be your own best MUA. 

Based in Delhi, Shruti Kukreja primarily caters to bridal makeup using the best products from renowned brands like Huda Beauty, Jaclyn Hill, Nars, Tarte, Kevyn Aucoin, Lakme, MAC and more. She is extremely well-known in Delhi and famous for her stunning coral looks, non-cakey base and effortless bridal makeup. Her style is distinctly classy and subtle. She also loves experimenting with monochromatic looks. She considers makeup to be a form of art that doesn’t need to adhere to any trend. She says, “Makeup is like art. An easy canvas to express yourself so use your creativity and experiment new looks. Even when I work with current trends, I never bind myself to those and always try to make something of my own. I want to teach this to everyone. Trends are for the anxious and as long as you know your colours, tones and tints, you’re good to go. I believe it’s time the industry gets an infusion of new blood into it that will shake everything up!”

Therefore, besides weddings, she has also lent her expertise in teaching makeup. She is currently teaching millennials during this pandemic. She started her career in Europe, first by joining Scandinavian Makeup Academy and then by working in Barcelona. She soon emerged as a pioneer in the world of makeup and fashion. Using the best of products and her expert skills, her work is nearly magical. It is no surprise she was popular with European clients and now she is the same with her Indian clients! 

The makeup artist has now decided to share her skills by introducing her European and American techniques that are affordable, convenient and interesting. In order to provide a platform to newcomers, she is looking to teach and advance the skills of other makeup artists. For this purpose, she opened an institution named Shruti Kukreja Makeup Institute (SKMI) in Delhi. Through this initiative, Shruti is offering a wide range of basic courses from beginner courses for novices to advanced courses for professionals.

This fabulous hotel is located centrally. This hotel offers easy access to Kingdom of Dreams, DLF Cyber City, MG Road, IFFCO Chowk, Udyog Vihar and Epicentre Gurgaon.

I stayed in their Executive Guest Room / Club King room and enjoyed their 30 hours #Staycation offer which includes:

  • Breakfast for 2 adults and 2 children under 12
  • Dinner per night
  • Kids meals (12 and under)
  • Wireless Internet
  • Master Chef Classes tickets
  • 1 Complimentary Round of Mocktails tickets for 2

The room was spacious, classy and had a plush featherbed, work area and a sofa. It is well-equipped with amenities like LCD TV, high-speed Wi-Fi, marble bathroom and 24-hour room service. The hotel staff is polite and room service is flawless. I treated myself with delicious international cuisine at their cozy restaurant called Downtown Kitchen and Bar. Their Chilli Chicken and Lal Maas cannot be missed!! Their dinner buffet is no less and is sumptuous. Also not to forget the wide range of desserts and cakes. These are a must try. They have dining space outside in the garden as well called the Courtyard Grill.

The gymnasium, outdoor pool and wellness spa were closed adhering to Covid-19 precautionary measures. Continuous sanitization and safety measures were taken. The stay was extremely safe.

Even though it is a four-star hotel, room rates are very reasonable and light on the pocket. Also would recommend to make use of their Staycation package.

Thanks to the Hotel Staff for being so thoughtful 🙂

Staycation at WelcomHotel, ITC

Featured

Had an incredible luxury Staycation experience at WelcomHotel, Dwarka by ITC hotels in New Delhi. I stayed in their Studio Suite. The suite was huge and with a wider outside view. The suite I stayed was at 8th Floor and had a pool view. Suite is equipped with a spacious living area, workstation, bedroom and there is ample room to relax.

They welcomed me in the suite with Mulled Wine, Roses and Dessert Platter which was created in a personalized way. The experience was best of luxury and service standards are highly commendable. The bed was super comfortable and washroom was very big with rain shower. Products in the washroom were of premium quality.

 

The hotel has the highest level of hospitality. Had an extravagant Christmas brunch at Pavilion 75 which serves the best of Indian and Oriental cuisines. They had everything on the counter from Roasted Duck to Spinach & Pomegranate shots to Red Snapper. Also highly recommend the desi Makke ki Roti & Sarso ka Saag.

After stuffing myself so much, it was time to relax in my luxurious suite. Watched some series on their Flat-screen TV and munched on seasonal fruits which they serve daily in the suite. Thereafter, headed to WelcomWelness for an amazing Spa session called WelcomSignature Spa and concluded with a steamy shower. The Spa experience was amazing and it is a must to de-stress yourself.

For evening snack, I ordered their Lamb Burger and Chicken Tikka Pizza. Both were super delicious. Pizza was loaded well with chicken chunks and cheese.

Dinner was at Kebabs & Kurries, it is ITC Hotel’s award winning signature fine cuisine North Frontier Indian Specialty Restaurant. The restaurant is lit with 1100 candles and has live ghazal which makes the dinner experience very memorable. Service was top notch by Aman and Chef Jitender prepared some special dishes one of them being Paneer stuffed with veggies. This dish was lip-smacking and I highly recommend it. Also had other signature dishes like the popular Dal Bukhara. Non-vegetarian platter and Gosht Biryani was also scrumptious. I tried the dessert sampler which had Kulfi, Shahi Tukda and Gulab Jamun. Shahi Tukda being the best ever I have tasted till date.

They also have another restaurant called the Shanghai Club. As the name suggests, it specializes in Chinese cuisine and serves delightful dimsums and spring rolls.

Next morning, visited their huge gyming area which comprises of many equipments. After a sweaty session, ordered a variety of different dishes for breakfast in the suite, from lavish English Breakfast to Masala Dosa to Chocolate stuffed Croissants, they had everything on the menu. Highly recommend their Chicken and Cheese Sandwich which was grilled to perfection.

Lifestyle Awareness Day 2018

Featured

Lifestyle can be briefly described as the way we chose to live our life. It is just not about living, it is about how we live. It is just not about eating fruits and vegetables, but also about ensuring that what we chose to eat, adds value to our health and life. It is all about living a life that is healthy, active and happy. It is about spending quality time with our family, friends and loved ones that adds to the overall well-being.

images

Every year in the month of February, Lifestyle Awareness Day is observed as an awareness initiative to educate and create awareness on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Through this day it is communicated to the people on the elements of good nutrition, physical activity, tobacco control, awareness against alcohol and drug abuse and the importance of safe sexual behaviour. Through this day the people get the opportunity of know and tackle lifestyle diseases like obesity, hypertension, depression, inactivity and unhealthy diets.

Living a healthy lifestyle is not at all difficult as we might think of. Just like anything else, it starts with a simple step. Whether it is quitting the habit of smoking or alcohol, or choosing to eat healthy and engaging in some sort of physical activity.

Noted below are some lifestyle changes that is recommended on this lifestyle awareness day for all for a better and healthier tomorrow:

  • Choose to reduce your salt intake: High salt intakes are responsible for issues related to blood pressure and in the long run towards heart diseases and strokes. Reduce the use of salt to minimum along with processed and fast foods.
  • Increase calcium intake: It is a vital mineral for bone and tooth health. It is also important for other body functions like the contractions of muscles.
  • Adopt to eating a balanced diet: Diet with the right ratio of essential elements like minerals, fats, proteins and carbohydrates are necessary for the proper functioning of all organs in the body and its development.
  • Quit smoking and reduce alcohol intake: Both these elements are of no good to us. Smoking damages our lungs and alcohol our kidneys and other vital organs of the body. The benefits are none, whereas, the damages are countless.
  • Exercise regularly and stay hydrated: Drink atleast 8 to 10 glasses of water throughout the day to keep hydrated. Water is the best medicine that we could have to stay healthy and cleansed. Exercising regularly keeps us fit and active and keeps our muscles toned and relaxed.

The world changes even before we could realize the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. Take the first step forward and start living a happy and healthier life.

How I survived during COVID-19 lockdown | Quick Recipe to make Chicken Roll

Recap of how I survived during COVID-19 nationwide lockdown.

I ensured to keep stock of frozen food during Lockdown because of Corona Virus spread as going out to buy veggies was not a simple task. Stayed at Home and made easy and quick wraps / rolls made from frozen food. Ensured not to consume anything raw during the spread of COVID-19, even onions should be sauteed! Instead of Chicken Seekh Kebabs you may use other frozen meats like Salami, Sausages, even Veg patty.

INGREDIENTS:

2 Wheat Roti / Tortilla, Frozen Seekh Kebabs, Sambel Chilli Garlic Sauce, half diced red onion, Maggi hot and sweet sauce, grate cheese if required to make it cheesy. #StayAtHome

Delicious Cafe Food in South Delhi

Have been craving to go out and it’s been many months that I have been to a cafe. Found this gem online and thought of trying. Whiz Cafe delivers in South Delhi. Food was packed and labelled well.

Three Bean salad – Loaded with high protein legumes and fresh vegetables. This was tangy and bursting with flavours, also quite filling. Just loved it! MUST TRY!!

IMG_3525

Chicken Sandwich – Toasted french bread was crisp and fresh stuffed with grilled chicken, lettuce, veggies and cheese. This sandwich was a serious deal and tasted top notch! Also it was served with potato wedges which were yum.

Spicy Aglio e Olio – Spaghetti cooked in olive oil with garlic, chilli flakes, fresh herbs and parmesan cheese. To be honest, I have not tasted anything so simple yet delicious! Being a hardcore non-vegetarian, this veg dish was an absolute winner. MUST TRY!!

IMG_3527

Wild Mushroom Risotto – Risotto was cooked with assorted mushroom and garnished with parmesan shavings topped with truffle oil. Not a fan of risotto so it was quite average.

Chocolate Cake – This cake just melted in my mouth. Best ending to this awesome meal.

I love how this cafe has maintained the quality of the food they serve. I am surely going to try more dishes from Whiz Cafe.

Also I’m glad to be a part of the #SupportLocalRestaurants and #VocalforLocal campaign. It’s time to support local restaurants and brands in these tough times.

Murg Methi Malai Tikka – Chicken thigh pieces marinated well with cream and fenugreek. The quantity was great and kebabs were fresh. MUST TRY!!

Murg Tikka Chilli Garlic – Thigh Chicken chunks marinated with spices and yogurt and grilled in tandoor to perfection.

Gosht Adraki – Succulent pieces of mutton cooked in spicy gravy with fresh ginger and herbs. Went well with butter naan :p

Mutton Roganjosh – Gravy was thick with huge pieces of tender mutton. This really went well with their Paneer Dhania Kulcha. MUST TRY!!

Their food quality and taste is amazing! Will surely try more kebabs and curries from Chowki.

Also I’m glad to be a part of the #SupportLocalRestaurants and #VocalforLocal campaign. It’s time to support local restaurants and brands in these tough times.
