Summer Pout Inspiration: Bollywood Celebs

Summers are for bringing in all sorts of color and while we mostly talk about ensembles that go with baubles, this time we’ll talk about lip colors that go with accessories. While carrying a lip balm is protocol, we don’t mind the colors of summer acting as great lipstick options to choose from. Our celebs have paved a fine way of acing berry colors and nonchalant nudes so we’ve gone ahead and paired them up with Pipa Bella accessories.

Corals are the perfect summer lips! Anushka Sharma looks chic in this coral lip and her dapper sunglasses make her look summer ready. Add our Stefano Hoops with this look and bring in the retro vibe.

PB Travel Journal: Jodhpur

Blog_Cover_Mar18

Set amidst the endless Thar Desert is Jodhpur, which is also famously known as ‘The Blue City.’ “The houses in old Jodhpur area are all coloured in ‘Blue’, hence the name. When seen from the top of the fort, the entire city looks really beautiful and in harmony” says Amoli, our team member who vacationed in the heritage city with her friend. Along with that, what really mesmerized her was the regally inspired art and culture that still dwells in the city, attractive handicrafts and the warmth with which people receive you.

What to look out for?

The Mehrangarh Fort displays the rich heritage of the Maharajas who once lived there. There are various collectibles and antique accessories on display which were once used by the residents.

Umaid Bhavan Palace is where Maharaja Gaj Singh of Jodhpur currently resides. A part of it is inhabited by the royals while the rest of the palace is turned into a hotel. The interiors are indeed gorgeous!

Clock tower is another place frequented by visitors that is located in the middle of a day market. The tower is surrounded by local sellers of ethnic clothing, jewelry, fabrics, spices, footwear, carpets and many more household things. It’s truly a shopper’s haven!

To hang out, there is a really good place called ‘Dagley’ which means ‘Rooftop’ in Marwari and is situated in the middle of old Jodhpur near the fort area. The rooftop displays the fort in full view and a part of the city. You can just sit here and chill all day long with your friends.

 

Where to stay?

Find a friend who lives in Jodhpur. There is nothing better than a Marwari’s house! The hospitality, the food, the family; no hotel can match those levels.

 

Where to shop?

There are little markets all over Jodhpur and you can shop for juttis/mojaris, rich Rajasthani fabrics, ethnic jewelry, handcrafted bags, artifacts and all of it at a pretty reasonable rate, provided you have good bargaining skills.

 

Where to eat?

As I was living at my friend’s place ‘maa(aunty) ke haath ka khana’ was the best! She makes the best gatte ki sabzi and mirchi ka achaar.

Jodhpur’s street food is to die for too. You get the most amazing  Mirchi vadas, Pyaaz ki kachori, Bread pakoras and many such unhealthy yet savoury snacks; around every corner of the city. Also, I have eaten the world’s best Gulab Jamuns which are made at this local sweet shop ‘Ras Sagar’.

There are also many heritage clubs in Jodhpur which serve really good food as well. So if you have a friend who is a member there, you can enter and enjoy a nice dinner.

Local restaurants serve various cuisines and I happened to like ‘Dagley’ a lot. It is a must visit as it serves really good food.

PB Travel Journal: Bali

bali_4

Our team member Pranali chose Bali as her honeymoon destination and described it as paradise for nature lovers. From scenic rice terraces to culturally rich temples and endless beaches, Bali urges you to click a picture of each place you visit. The touristy nature of the island has not deterred its intrinsic art and craft and that is what makes it one of the few places which is on every traveller’s bucket list.

What to look out for?

Pantai Pandawa beach is a must-visit! Tanah Lot is a beautiful rock formation and is also home to the ancient Hindu religious temple making it the perfect place to be in. Visit the Monkey Forest in Ubud and you will be transferred to where the visuals of a Jungle Book would have looked like. Beautiful and detailed sculptures can be found everywhere in Bali with a peculiar feature of aggression on the face. Those who love water sports, head to Nusa Dua Beach. Uluwatu is another high altitude area which is very very scenic and is considered one of the best surfing places in the world. The Balinese cultural dance is something that you should definitely witness. Live music is also very prevalent here.

Where to stay?

You can stay at the beach facing property of Kuta Heritage. Hotel Four Points By Sheraton, Seminyak is another luxe hotel to stay in. Kuta and Seminyak are the best places to stay as everything is nearby. Kuta is also the main city area and a party hub. Definitely try out the spas here.

Where to shop?

Seminyak is full of brands and there are a couple of upscale malls in Kuta too. Tanah Lot is where you can shop on the streets. Get beautiful batik fabrics, intricate silver ware and elaborate wood carvings in Ubud, Celuk and Seminyak. While at that don’t forget to tour through the silver art galleries.

Where to eat?

Balinese cuisines include Bebek betutu and Babi guling. Indonesian delicacies such as Nasi and Mei Goreng are also something you should definitely try. Jimbaran Beach is very famous for sunset dinners and Kuta is famous for drinks.

PB Travel Journal: Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia

An annual trip with her husband and in-laws landed our CEO, Shuchi in Dubrovnik and other parts of Croatia. It isn’t happenstance that she is a huge fan of Game of Thrones and these are the exact places where a good portion of the series was shot. She convinced them to visit Eastern Europe (particularly the Balkan region) to experience an absolutely gorgeous Fall weather with lesser crowds and fewer waiting lines because they’d have no “ygrittes” going to Croatia (This one’s only for the GoT lovers, everyone else can roll their eyes) :).

What to look out for?

Plitvice Lakes are one of the most spectacular sights – pristine blue waters and gushing waterfalls make for picture-perfect scenery. Dubrovnik is an all-time favorite. Being a walled city, and still having about 2000 inhabitants living in the inner city, old Dubrovnik town has a charm that can put you back about 800 years in time. That, combined with modern bars, and live music emerging from small alleyways, made for a perfect combination of old and new. You will burn a good number of calories climbing stairs and the outer walled forts. Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia which are Slavic souvenirs were all once part of the great Yugoslavia, and remnants of soviet culture can still be seen in older parts of the town.

Where to stay?

In most places you can Airbnb your way through, which is perfect if you are travelling with friends/ family. Airbnb offers nice apartments with space so you can totally chill. Rixos Hotel in Dubrovnik is a fantabulous place to stay too.

Where to shop?

Ljubljana in Slovenia is a charming old city full of artists, museums and galleries. There is a nice string of shops on Mestni trg 6, Čopova Street and the Old town.

Where to eat?

Nautika in Dubrovnik is as close to a Michelin star restaurant that you can get. Insanely good food, even for vegetarians! Pizza in Ljubljana is really good and so are the falafels and bureks. Vigo Ice cream in the heart of Ljubliana is also uh-mazing!
