Some insight for fellow instagrammers & PRs:
A blog is a type of website where the content is often referred to as blog posts mainly with the purpose of sharing information or experiences. Therefore, posting pictures on instagram is not called blogging. Please do not call instagrammers as bloggers 🙏

Mom’s Birthday at Ramada Central Gurgaon

Featured

Stayed at Ramada Central, Gurgaon for my Mom’s Birthday celebration. This hotel is minutes away from National Highway 8, route to Jaipur as well as MGF Metropolitan Mall, Kingdom of Dreams, Leisure Valley, and Galaxy Mall with proximity to Cyber Park, DLF Phase 1 and corporate hubs like Udyog Vihar and DLF Cyber City.

We stayed in their Club Room and enjoyed our #Staycation thoroughly. This cozy room had a work area and a sitting area. It is well-equipped with amenities like LCD TV, high-speed Wi-Fi, air conditioning and 24-hour room service. The hotel staff is courteous and room service is flawless. They have a vast food menu which offers everything from Continental, Chinese, Italian to Indian including varieties of kebabs. Their restaurant is known as Café Rouge. Though food can also be serve in Bar and Lounge as well. Thanks to the Restaurant Manager, Mr. Vishal Katoch who took care of our culinary needs. Their Tandoori Jheenga (Prawns), Lucknowi Mutton Curry and Spicy Chicken Tikka Pizza cannot be missed!! They have also scrumptious sizzlers fest going on currently. Food is of top quality and will surely satisfy your taste buds.

They have gymnasium, outdoor pool and wellness spa. Spa and pool were closed adhering to Covid-19 precautionary measures. Continuous sanitization and safety measures were taken. They also have conference rooms and banquet halls with a lot of space.

Even though it is a four-star hotel, room rates are very realistic and light on the pocket. I would recommend to book through their website directly as they have good discounts available on their portal.

Special thanks to Mr. Sumit Ghosh who took care of everything throughout our stay leaving us with a memorable experience. Also the complementary cake for my Mom’s Birthday was absolutely delicious 🙂

Delhi Makeup Artist – Shruti Kukreja

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.
