As you are reading this post, I have just turned 30 somewhere under the blue sky. To be very honest, I have been thinking about this day since my early 20s. Turning 30 is like turning my mom’s age when she had two school-going kids! Most of the 90s girls can relate to this weird feeling where turning 30 has always seemed to feel like a distant dream and at the same time, it has been too tempting to step into this new milestone in life. Anyway, to sum up, I would say that I am a little nervous yet very excited to enter this new phase in my life. After all, you age like a fine wine and also someone told me 30 is the new 20!

Like every other person in this world, these thirty years of my life has taught me so many things- good, bad, ugly that gradually and eventually helped me grow as a human being and made me who I am today. These events have taught me not to regret anything in life rather make your failures your opportunities to start afresh in life. Today, in this post, I will tell you 30 things I have learned before I turned 30. This post might get a little lengthy but I promise I won’t make it boring!

To me, ageing is like an upgradation. With every year, you upgrade your inner and outer self, your mental state and your life’s vision by adding or eliminating things, vibes and people depending how much value these things are adding to your life. 30 is the age when you are almost aware of the fact that it’s more practical to stop clinging onto things or persons that no longer serve you and there is nothing wrong in that. The only way we age, at least for me, is all in our mind. For instance, mentally, I feel I am still in my early twenties or maybe late teens. That’s why I never dreaded turning 30 though it surely feels crazy to realise how time flew and landed me here.

Anyway, let’s start the part you are here for! Thirty years is enough to learn almost 90% of our life lessons. Some might have been hard for you and some might have been delightful but overall they all have helped you to grow into this beautiful person that you are now. Here, I am sharing mine-

30 Things I Learnt Before I Turned 30

  17. Mental peace is the most important.
  18. Never let anyone take your emotions for granted.
  19. It’s okay not to be in everyone’s good books.
  20. Journaling helps overthinkers a lot.
  21. Sunsets are my most favourite thing to watch every day.
  22. The moon/moonlight makes me happy.
  23. Negativity attracts negativity. So, it’s better to distance yourself from negative people and negative thoughts.
  24. When you stop procrastinating, great things happen.
  25. Patience is the key.
  26. Not everyone is qualified to be called a friend.
  27. Pretence irritates me to the core.
  28. Don’t judge a book by its cover.
  29. Life becomes more beautiful when you embrace it without asking anything in return.
  30. NEVER GIVE UP. Good things happen when you least expect it.

Being a blogger, trying new products is a neverending journey. Even after 7 years of being a beauty blogger, I still get excited to try new brands and new products. It’s not only helpful for my readers but also very enriching for me as well. Recently, I tried a few products from a brand called Ethicare Remedies available on Emegamart.com. This brand is completely new to me and the products are also one of their own kind. You’ll eventually get to know how. Today, I am going to review the first product that I started using, i.e. the Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash.

How to Use Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash

Wet your face and apply a pea-size amount of the facewash on to the skin and neck. Massage in an upward circular motion. Wash off with cold water followed by a light moisturizer. For best results use twice or thrice a day regularly.

Ingredients

Key Ingredients:

Glycolic Acid (2%), Salicylic Acid (0.50%), Liquorice Extract (1 %), Tea tree Oil (0.50%), Aloe Vera (2 %)

Full list:

Carbomer, Glycerine, Sodium Lauryl Ether, Coco Amino Propyl Betain, D-Panthenol, Triclosan, Sodium hydroxide.

Packaging

Cutishine Anti-acne face wash comes in a golden coloured plastic tub with a flip open cap. The tube comes placed in a colour-coordinated cardboard box. The cap closes tightly and is absolutely spill-proof. The sleek packaging makes the product safe for travelling. A part of the tube is transparent so that you can keep a tab on how much product you are left with and it also adds to the aesthetics.

Texture & Smell

Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash by Ethicare Remedies Review | Cherry On Top

The texture of Cutishine Anti-acne face wash is like that of a gel and the consistency is quite runny. The face wash is transparent and has no colour whatsoever. It contains tiny white and golden beads in it which help in gently exfoliate the skin while cleaning it.

The smell is quite like an aftershave or a gent’s EDT. The smell isn’t something I am really fond of. I find it a bit strong for my liking. I love skincare products that are mildly scented.

My Experience with Ethicare Remedies Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash

Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash by Ethicare Remedies Review | Cherry On Top

Having been suffering from occasional acne (mainly hormonal) and ‘blessed‘ with oily skin, I never stop searching for that perfect wash for my skin. I have been using this face wash for the past few weeks and I think this is something I definitely should continue using this.

When I started using this face wash, I did not have any active acne. So, I cannot tell you if this removes pimple or not but it certainly helped me keep the occasional pimples at bay. It delayed the arrival of the pimples and as I continued using this, it completely stopped them from appearing.

But, acne is not the main skin concern that I have, it’s the oiliness that bothers me more than the occasional pimples and this face wash has effectively taken care of that. It removes any traces of the excessive sebum that my skin produces during the night and gets accumulated mainly around my nose. Also, the tiny beads in the product help gently exfoliate the skin, unclogging the pores. These beads are not at all harsh on the skin thus could be used on a daily basis.

Despite removing all the extra oil from your face, this product does not dry out your skin or make it stretchy at all. Both Tea tree oil and Salicylic acid work wonders for the acne, tea tree oil is also a great anti-oxidant that fights free radicals. Glycolic acid and Salicylic acid are gentle exfoliants that remove any dead cells from the skin without being abrasive on the skin. Liquorice helps brighten the skin giving it a radiant look. Glycerine and D-Panthenol are great humectants that help moisturize the skin without making it oily. Aloe vera helps the skin soothe and adds a bit of moisture too. Overall, the ingredients list is quite impressive which makes the product totally safe to use.

Despite being engineered for oily, acne-prone skin, it’s suitable for all skin types.

Which anti-acne face wash can you swear by?

Every shape has its own beauty. We all agree to that, right? At the same time, we all want to enhance the appearance of whatever shape we are in. For that, we need clothes that accentuate our curves in the right places so that the shape of our body looks even more attractive. Finding your perfect shapewear could be a hassle. But, not anymore. Recently, I came across a site called Feelingirl.com that has an array of shapewear and other training clothes at affordable prices.

Today, in this post, I am going to talk about a few of their best categories of training clothes that have caught my eyes and I have added to my wishlist. So, here we go-

Waist Trainers

I feel Feelingirl has some of the best waist trainer for women. From the makes to their fits, everything seems well designed and so perfectly produced. Waist trainers are great for you to get rid of that stubborn belly fat that refuses to reduce even after so many efforts. The waist trainers available on Feelingirl are made of soft and breathable fabric which supposedly works better than the hard corsets. The hollow interlocking design of the waist trainers is more breathable than any other. It’s also more comfortable than corsets.

You can wear them to outdoor runs, take them to the gym or use for daily wear. This is great for any time. The built of this so thin that it won’t be visible if you wear it underneath your cloth.

The material is a completely irritation resistant. You can wear it for a long period without any scratch, irritation or rashes. The high elasticity helps with the perfect adjustment to all body types. Waist Shapers are perfect for weight loss training, workout band, or even postpartum support girdles.

Thigh Trimmers

Just like the belly fat, thigh fat is also very tough to burn. It just refuses to reduce even after months of working out. A thigh trimmer quickly increases the temperature of the targeted area, generates a lot of heat in the process of exercise, promotes more sweating, increases the metabolism of the body, and helps speed up the process of losing weight.

They use a material called Neoprene in their thigh trimmers that helps prevent skin laxity after weight loss. You are advised to wear it while exercising for better efficacy and for normal daily routines or for any physical activity.

Shaper Shorts

This is something I am particularly fond of. Good high waisted shaper shorts makes your tummy and hips perfectly shaped when you’re wearing a bodycon dress or a pair of pretty fitted trousers. No matter how firm your tummy area is, tight bodycon dresses can make that area look bulgy. High waisted shorts are designed to lessen the appearance of your abdomen. The shorts will soften the thigh area and lift your butt. These are great for the days you feel bloated.

They are made of a very comfortable fabric that allows you to move freely without worrying about the shorts coming down or rolling down your waist. It stays there for a long time, no matter what activity you are doing. These are great for every occasion such as parties, work, training, yoga or gym.

Hello, everyone. Hope you all are doing great. Today’s post is a review of the Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub. Before starting off, I just want to put a disclaimer that this post is in no means sponsored or under a collaboration. I have used Mamaearth products in the past and I feel that this brand needs more exposure than what it gets right now. I have been using this particular scrub for the past couple of weeks and I thought it’s just the right time to share my views with you all. Now, let’s jump straight into the review. 

Scrubbing is one of the most essential parts of my skincare routine. I like to scrub my face every two days because I think that’s what works for me the best. Generally, it is advised to exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. I also like to scrub my face before and after shaving and also after removing my makeup. Scrubbing my face after makeup has proved to be very beneficial for my skin. It helps keep the breakouts at bay. 

A Few Words on the brand- Mamaearth

Mamaearth is an Indian personal care brand that focuses on natural skin, hair and baby care products which are 100% toxin-free. It is claimed to be Asia’s first Made-safe certified brand. Very interesting, right? It’s no mystery why a large number of people of almost all age groups love their products. Mamaearth is-

  • FDA approved
  • Made-safe certified
  • Completely toxin-free
  • Dermatologically tested
  • A unique combination of science and Ayurveda
  • 100% natural and organic ingredients

  • Step 4: Rinse off with water and pat dry.
  • Step 5: Use at least twice a week for best results.

Packaging

Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub comes in a classic plastic tube packaging. The flip-open lid is quite secure and spill-proof. Overall, I found the packaging very sturdy and sleek. You can easily carry it with you.

Also, all the information about this product is written on the tube, including ingredients and manufacturing and expiry dates which I found really handy.

Texture & Smell

Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub has a very creamy texture. It’s loaded with micro-exfoliating particles. The consistency is not very thick or not to thin thus it’s quite easy to work with it.  The thickness of the product is just perfect so no need to mix it with water. 

The smell is exactly like exotic coffee and a bit of cocoa. Quite obvious, right? The smell actually helps in calming my senses to some extent. Using it in the mornings can actually help you wake up. I find it exclusively great or me as I am a coffee lover. The scent is quite raw and not at all chemical-like. The best thing about the scent is that it’s not very strong or overpowering. It’s mild and relaxing.

My Experience with MamaEarth Coco Face Scrub

Scrubs are one of my favourite skincare steps. I love this particular product for several reasons.

  • Firstly, this is a very mild exfoliator. The granules are loosely packed and are not very abrasive. That’s why it doesn’t feel harsh on the skin. My skin has been acting up lately. It gets bumpy and sometimes sensitive. This scrub doesn’t irritate my skin.
  • The second thing I love about this product is that it doesn’t make the skin dry or stretchy. I have used many scrubs in the past and most of them had a tendency to make your skin look and feel dehydrated. Gladly, this one doesn’t. Rather it keeps the skin moisturized even after cleansing it thoroughly. The shea butter in it makes sure your skin is well-nourished and hydrated. This results in a soft and supple skin every time you use this scrub.
  • The aroma of this is another thing about this scrub that I love. The coffee and cocoa smell makes your mornings even more energetic and also help you relax on your tougher days. 

Overall, I found this product very impressive and effective. It gently exfoliates the dead cells off of the skin leaving it nourished and hydrated. It also effectively removes blackheads too. The skin feels soft and smooth after application which I really like. Although this product is a little on the expensive side I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a 100% Indian, natural, chemical-free and hydrating exfoliator. #VocalforLocal

Growing up, most of us have secretly prayed for a pill to get glowing skin, haven’t we? (Don’t get me wrong, I am just talking hypothetically here). Having tried the Glowing skin gummies by Within Nutrition, I felt that my prayers have been answered. I have seen people raving about multivitamin gummies for skin or hair but I never paid heed to those. When I was approached by Within Nutrition to try their glowing skin gummies, I was both sceptical and interested to try them for the first time. Today, in this post, I will share my experience with you.

Price- ₹999 ₹699 (on sale), Buy here- https://www.withinnutrition.in/products/glowing-skin

 

Within Glowing Skin Gummies Review | Cherry On Top

Packaging-

Although I was familiar with the concept of gummy nutrition, I did not have any experience with any. So, I did not know what exactly to expect and how long it might take for the results to show up. All I knew was I have to take 2 gummies daily for 21 days as the number of gummies in one pack is 42. 

These gummies come in a plastic-free jar and that consists 42 gummies in toffee-like packaging. What I liked the most is that each gum is individually packed so if you are out for a day, you don’t need to carry the whole jar. You can carry as many as you want to.

Ingredients- 

The one thing that made me interested to try their product is this wonderful ingredient list. I am writing all of them down with their benefits-

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our skin that retains water and helps keep it hydrated. It instantly reduces fine lines and makes the skin look dewy.

Sea Buckthorn

Sea Buckthorn improves the overall skin health, promotes skin hydration, increases collagen level to boost skin elasticity and firmness and fight inflammation and acne breakouts.

Zinc

Zinc fights acne and prevents any future breakout. It also works as a great antioxidant.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a great source of antioxidants with the power to combat free radicals that cause damage to the skin cells. It naturally helps in the skin regeneration process. It helps lighten hyperpigmentation or any dark spots. Vitamin C evens out skin tone, boosts radiance and gives your skin an overall brightened look with regular use.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E fight against any damage occurred to your skin cells due to pollution or UV rays. Also, prevents the signs of ageing. 

Vitamin A

Vitamin A tightens the skin naturally. It helps to hydrate the skin- giving it a naturally radiant and glowy look.

Benefits-

  • Fights Pollution & Prevent Acne
  • Hydrates & Maintains Glow
  • Reduces Blemishes

My Experience with Within Glowing Skin gummies

To be very honest, when I started with these gummies, I wasn’t really sure if this is actually going to be beneficial for me. Yes, I was sceptical. On the initial days, I did not find any significant change in the appearance on my skin. Honestly, it felt a little disappointing. But, I am so glad I did not give up on those. I kept having two gummies a day for about 15 days without missing. That is when the actual difference showed up and it was worth the wait. 

I started to notice a subtle glow on my cheek area and other high points of my face. Now that I am writing this, I realise, the glow started to occur in the starting days itself but it was so subtle that it was not perceivable enough. Anyway, I continued to have two gummies a day and that made the results to show through even better. So far, I have noticed a really nice radiant glow on my skin but I did not see any reduction of the sunspots or the pimple marks that I have on my skin.

Packed with multiple nutrients, these gummies are not only great to have glowing skin, but it’s also beneficial for your overall health.  They have a very mild yet distinct berry flavour and a delectable citrusy taste. These gummies are actually very succulent and yummy. 

The great thing about Within Glowing Skin Gummies is that they are free from any preservatives, all-natural and fssai approved which make them completely safe to consume. 

So, this was my review of the Within Glowing Skin Gummies. It worked for me hence I recommend this to all of you. I want you all to read this review thoroughly to decide whether or not you would like to invest in this product.

There are many unique ways to make an alternative income these days. Whether it is working for a food delivery service, taking surveys online, or getting into beauty product testing, there are countless ways to make an extra income. Today, we are going to focus on why becoming a beauty product tester is a brilliant idea in 2020.

What Is a Beauty Product Tester?

The first thing you are likely wondering is what exactly is a beauty product tester and why do brands need one? Companies are paying consumers to try out their new and unreleased products to get a good idea of how well that product is going to sell once it is on the market. Before they put forth all of the time, money, and effort required to get these beauty products in stores, the companies need someone like you or someone from a beauty product testing company to try the product out and give a review, so they can work out all of the kinks before it hits store shelves.

How to Become a Product Tester

Alternative Income Streams: Read This If You Want to Become a Beauty Product Tester in 2020

To become a beauty product tester, the first step is to sign up with a market research firm that allows people to test products at home. A screening test will then be sent to determine who qualifies for certain product testing. An example is those who do not use certain types of cosmetic products will likely not qualify to test those products. Once the tester is approved, they are sent a product to try within a few weeks. All that needs to be done is to follow the directions on the product, test it out, and give an honest and in-depth review based on the experience. This article from Apple Rubber says product testing is the best way to catch defects or issues early on in the process.

Getting Paid

According to Forbes, no product is going to be successful if it does not provide some type of benefit or use to the user. This is why companies are taking advantage of the idea of product testing. It is 100 per cent possible to bring in a steady flowing side income by testing beauty products for different brands. Not only is it easy to do, but the tester also typically gets to keep the rest of the product and also gets paid for trying it out. It’s a win-win. As far as payment goes, there is a pretty big range depending on the company offering the testing and the type of product. Testers can be paid anywhere from $3 to $500 for one product. That is not bad money for the little effort it takes to try the item out and give honest feedback.

Alternative Income Streams: Read This If You Want to Become a Beauty Product Tester in 2020 | Cherry On Top

One key thing to keep in mind is that just like in any job opportunity online, there are a lot of people out there who just want to scam people and take their money. People should never pay a company to test a product. If the brand is asking for money in any way, it is most likely a scam. The tester is the one who should be receiving payment for doing the work and giving feedback.

There are many benefits to becoming a beauty product tester. Testing is easy and free, it is a simple way to earn some extra cash, and it is a great way to guarantee these company’s produce quality products in the future. Those who are looking for alternative income streams this year should try out this opportunity.

Ever since the Covid-19 situation has hit us hard, I believe there are more consumers of hand creams than ever in this country. Washing your hands with soap and water repeatedly and moreover, excessive use of alcohol-based products are definitely as harmful to the skin as they are good for our overall health. So, a hand cream has become a must in your daily lives. It must have taken a permanent position in most of our nightstands. Hand creams are undoubtedly the best you can do to pamper your hands but, what if I tell you about a product that not only moisturizes your hands but also fights germs and works as a sanitizer? I am talking about the Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer. Today, I will be reviewing their Lavender variant.

Dot & Key Lavender Hand cream and Sanitizer is a great moisturizer for dry hands that also soothes and kills 99.9% germs with its unique alcohol-free formula. 

Before starting with the review, let me share some information on sanitizers especially keeping the Novel Coronavirus in mind which will be helpful for you to understand the efficacy of this product. Since most of you might be here to know whether or not this hand cream/ sanitizer will effectively fight coronavirus or not, please read this part carefully.

Can Alcohol-free Hand Sanitizers kill Coronavirus?

By now, all of us know a sanitizer containing 60% or more alcohol content works best to kill the Novel Coronavirus but does an alcohol-free sanitizer do the job? Well, alcohol-free sanitizers contain a special ingredient called benzalkonium chloride which is a quaternary ammonium compound and it is a conventional antimicrobial commonly used in ophthalmic preparations such as eye drops and lens solutions as a preservative. It is also used as antiseptic and disinfectant in a higher concentrated form. Benzalkonium Chloride is a detergent that denatures proteins and causes lysis of cytoplasmic membranes and is, therefore, a potent broad-spectrum antiseptic. Which pretty much sums up that it has the ability to kill Coronavirus but definitely not as effective as a soap or isopropyl alcohol, ethanol or n-propanol.

Price- ₹ 395/- for 50ml

Buy Here- Nykaa, Amazon, Dot & Key website

Packaging-

Dot & Key Hand cream comes in a cute plastic tube and a black screw-on cap pretty similar to L’Occitane or Boroline tubes. The colour of the tube is correspondent to the fragrance or variant. For example, the Lavender variant comes in a soft lavender-coloured tube. 

All the information including the MRP, Mfg date, batch number and the complete ingredients list is mentioned on the tube itself. The tube comes in a cardboard packaging that is completely pastic-free.

Description-

If you’ve ever sanitized your hands and cringed at how dry they become, you’re not alone. The good thing is, they’ll never feel that way again – not with Dot & Key Hand Cream doing double duty as hand sanitizer and moisturizer. Its active ingredients kill 99.9% germs, and its alcohol-free sanitizer formula ensures your hands don’t dry out in the process. Even better, the jojoba and shea actives it contains intensely nourish your hands so they feel soft and supple.
Infused with calming lavender and zesty peppermint essential oils, it leaves behind a delicately pleasing fragrance, even as it cleanses and hydrates. With its pocket-friendly size, it’s the perfect go-to for pure, baby-soft hands on the go. All Dot & Key products are dermatologist tested and 100% skin safe, Cruelty-Free, Vegetarian Friendly and free of nasty chemicals like Parabens, Alcohol, PABA, Phthalates & Sulphates. We assure safe, gentle and effective skincare.

Key Ingredients:

Non-Alcohol Sanitizer Actives: Contains active antibacterial ingredients like benzethonium chloride which kill 99.9% germs, and its alcohol-free formula ensures your hands don’t dry out in the process.

Shea Butter: An excellent moisturizer, its fat content is responsible for its emollient and humectant properties. It locks in the moisture and keeps skin hydrated for long. Helps soften the skin on hands and feet too.

Texture-

This product has a lotion-like texture- not too thick, not too runny. This texture helps it get absorbed into the skin quite fast and effectively. It provides enough moisture to your hands than any other lotion would do.

Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer Review

Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer- Lavender Review | Cherry On Top

My experience with Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer- Lavender & Peppermint has been great. I use it as a hand cream as it gives intense hydration to dry hands. Also, the light texture of this cream allows you to penetrate deep into the skin, providing it with nourishment that it requires and at the same time, it does not feel sticky or oily. 

I am not quite sure if I would recommend you this as a hand sanitizer because this is a time we should not take any risks. If you are looking for a product solely for sanitizing your hands, you should go for something that has 60% or 70% alcohol in it because that will be most effective. However, the Dot & Key Hand cream and Sanitizer would be a good option for sanitizing your hands if you are at home and want to do your makeup or skincare with sanitized hands.

Although I love the formula so much and considering the fact that you require a very little amount of product for both your hands, I still feel it is quite expensive for a 50ml tube. 

What is your favourite hand cream at the moment?

Hello, there! I am pretty sure you’ve landed on this blog post because you’ve been in a creative shutdown and now you are looking for some ideas and inspirations to successfully survive this quarantine phase through some fun writing that will engage your audience. Welcome! I have some cool quarantine blog post ideas to get your creative juices flowing again.

The whole CoVid-19 outbreak followed by the drawn-out lockdown period has definitely taken a toll on all of us, especially those that are in a creative field. Being creative and productive is way harder than it seems. One needs to be calm, at peace and mentally stable. Unfortunately, at least for me, it just had been the opposite since the past couple of months. My head is always full of scattered thoughts, most of which include death, destruction and uncertainty. My creative friends would agree that this is clearly not the ideal situation to keep oneself creative or productive. This resulted in writer’s blocks many a time which makes me believe there are many who might be feeling the same as me.

Pin it, folks!

You can jump straight into my list of blog post ideas OR you can continue reading to get a guide for coming up with unique blog post ideas when in a creative deprivation. As the purpose of this post is to share a list of ideas and not sharing ‘how-to’s, I will not be as descriptive in this part as I’d have love to. Maybe I’ll write a separate post on it if you like this type of content. Now, let’s start with the pointers.

How to Think of Blog Post Ideas | Cherry On Top Blog
Pin it, folks!
  1. Keep an eye on the trends: A trending topic not only will help you with tons of ideas around it to play with but also it will drive more traffic to your blog than usual. A win-win, right? You can use search engines, Google Keyword Planner tool or Google Trends to know which topics are trending right now and plan your content according to it.
  2.  Rummage through Pinterest: Believe me, Pinterest is a secret (not really!) chest of different ideas when it comes to creating content. On Pinterest, you get tons of fresh ideas every time you refresh your home page. They have different creators sharing bunches of unique content on various topics. You can take ideas from there and add your own magic to it. If you happen to be on Pinterest, don’t forget to check me out there
  3. Take Ideas from Blogosphere: If you are blogging for some time, you must have made blogger friends or have followed a bunch of bloggers that you look up to. If the answer is yes, I believe you are following their work via email or RSS or maybe you use Bloglovin (your girl is there too!) You can always see what others are doing and take some inspiration from there. Remember NOT to copy someone’s work. That’s shameful!
  4. Ask Your Audience: In this era of social media, why not take the help of it when needed? Ask what your audience want on your blog. Create Instagram stories with Question sticker or simply post on Facebook status. I’m sure you’ll get tons of ideas.

I have mastered the art of isolation, and mountains have always helped me externalize my emotions. The few friends that I am left with, they keep telling me that I rubbed off my personality from a mountain. I usually take that as a compliment. Mountains were my first love – the only constant that I have opened my heart to.

I have travelled to almost all the recognizable hill stations across the country. I used the word recognizable since the place that I am about to talk about is often overlooked, even though it is quite a convenient place. Lansdowne, unlike Manali, Shimla, or Rishikesh, deserves the same amount of attention and ardour – I think it does except it has managed to keep itself secluded from the mainstream at the height of 1700 meters.

Hike, Pray and Love

I think I had a brief moment of epiphany when I realized that corporate life was not meant for me. Not to romanticize, but Delhi is a sentient being, it speaks volumes to me. And, when you are a loner, you do get to observe these small details. So, I had to test this theory out and see if the travel life wants to choose me. Lansdowne seemed like a quaint place for me to know if I wanted to travel for the rest of my life.

A Trip to Lansdowne | Cherry on Top

Lansdowne can be reached by road – located in the Himalayas; the streets are only convenient routes. It is roughly a six hours drive from Rohtak, which is why I booked a convenient taxi service in Rohtak. Delhi to Rohtak takes about an hour and a half. Rohtak might seem like an inconvenient route for me, but I had to make the detour – there was some personal business that required my attention. (See, even in writing, my loner instincts won’t let me divulge details of my life)

Lansdowne – a slow respite

People often say that you aren’t to be left alone with your thoughts. But Lansdowne is for folks who’d love to be left alone with their thoughts. Don’t misplace it as an ideal tourist spot; it is neither commercialized nor urbanized. This place served as a recruitment ground for British forces to supply the workforce to the Garhwal rifles. So, I knew what I was getting myself into. Even though it is a place of respite, I had to make a travel itinerary. I wasn’t just going to sit around and brood.

 A bit of leftover colonial history

Lansdowne is a fading reminder of the colonial history left behind. Named after the then Viceroy Lord Lansdowne, its resonating silence is the most beautiful part.

Quitely Exploring Silence

Navigating silence is an art, so is silence. After a good night’s sleep, I woke up early to walk around the town.

I was suggested by a group of travellers that I visit old St. Mary’s church. The church stands erect like a goth queen, which harmonizes with the town’s residing tranquillity. I walked around the church and was able to catch a glimpse of the Himalayan mountain range. The peace here is addictive, almost makes you lethargic, normalizing your inner monologues. By the time I left St. Mary’s, I had enough monologues to add to a feature film. I did not feel like visiting the Bhulla Tal – not a massive fan of water bodies.

I started to retreat for the day, reaching the Mall Road late in the evening. I managed to get some snacks and some dinner. The city life seemed to have spoilt me; everything here closes down by 7:30.

Trekking at Kalagarh Wildlife Sanctuary

I decided to go for a small trek since what’s the point in just loitering around. Before I went for the trek, I decided to make a stop at Tip n Top to view the majesty of snow-clad Himalayas. Don’t worry, Himalaya is the kind of cameo that will keep appearing throughout the journey.

Kalagarh Wildlife Sanctuary is a part of the Corbett landscape and a natural haven for wildlife of Lansdowne. Although it seemed a bit far away from Lansdowne, I did not mind this subset of a trip to Kalagarh.

The theory of a choice

After Kalagarh, I planned for my return to Delhi. I think I am ready to travel. And, this trip helped me realize that. This perhaps is my calling – not being a white-collar corporate slave.

Note: If you want a smoother travel experience, try booking a cab from Delhi to Lansdowne. It will recommend the following route – Delhi – Ghaziabad – Modinagar – Meerut – Khatauli – Mirapur – Bijnor – Najibabad – Kotdwar – Lansdowne.
