I’m so excited for 2018, I know that it's going to be an amazing year! A new year means a fresh start and I like to give everything in my life a once over and refresh, including my makeup routine. I already started the new year off with a 7-day juice cleanse and I’ve been regularly spinning and going to pilates. (This is a BIG deal as I haven’t exercised in years!) 

I’m using Neutrogena® Healthy Skin® Makeup in 2018 to showcase a natural and fresh makeup look thats good for any occasion! 

You can pick up Neutrogena makeup at Walmart at the best prices!

Neutrogena is a brand that we have all known and trusted for many years as a skincare brand and you can also trust Neutrogena with all of your skincare needs. They only use high quality ingredients and you are getting quality at a reasonable price. Neutrogena blends science with beauty expertise with heavy duty research. Their products highlight a women’s natural beauty and feel good to use.

In 2018 I want to feature a fresh and  healthy look. Here's how I use Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Makeup to achieve this naturally beautiful makeup!

How to Apply Blush and Contour

First apply your Neutrogena® Healthy Skin® Compact Makeup. It’s ideal for all skin types and smooths your skin with a light to medium coverage. I like to use my foundation brush or my favorite blender to apply.

Next up I start on my contouring. Using my favorite dark contouring shade, I draw a line from the top of the ear towards my mouth. I draw two lines down the length of my nose to make it look smaller. Finally I add the contouring powder around the entire edges of my face to make my face appear smaller and more oval, which is the ideal face shape.

After I’m done applying the dark contour powder, I take a lighter contouring shade and use my blending brush to blend all over so there are no harsh lines anywhere.

Neutrogena® Healthy Skin® Makeup Natural Makeup Tutorial Eyes

Next up I use my Neutrogena® Healthy Skin® Blush for both my eyes and my cheeks for a cohesive, natural look. The shade that I chose to use is the the Bronzed shade, there are five total shades to choose from. First I take an eyeshadow brush and apply the blush all over my eyelids

Next up, I take a blush brush and apply it above the contour line that I previously applied.

I top it all off with the Moisture Smooth Color Stick which comes in 15 gorgeous shades. I chose to use a light pink color for this look, the pink nude. This lipstick moisturizes and conditions lips using Mango and Shea Butter, yummy!

Voila! Here is the finished look!

At the end of the day, I use the Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing towelettes to take it all off! These towelettes are great for travel also.

You can pick up all the Neutrogena products featured in this tutorial at your local Walmart!

6 Life Lessons Learned from Bahamian Culture http://www.nylonpink.tv/6-life-lessons-learned-bahamian-culture/ http://www.nylonpink.tv/6-life-lessons-learned-bahamian-culture/#comments Tue, 16 Jan 2018 16:58:16 +0000 http://www.nylonpink.tv/?p=14674 The Bahamas!

Known for its world-renowned beaches, its luxurious water park that erects from the ground up, and its picturesque views that make you say, “damn, I gotta Instagram this shit.”

But there is one thing that the Bahamas doesn’t get enough credit for:

It’s breathtaking and enticing culture!

The Bahamas!

Known for its world-renowned beaches, its luxurious water park that erects from the ground up, and its picturesque views that make you say, “damn, I gotta Instagram this shit.”

But there is one thing that the Bahamas doesn’t get enough credit for:

It’s breathtaking and enticing culture!    

Their culture is full of happiness, joy and the gathering of people to celebrate the colorful art of life. They take pride and joy in living a life full of thanks and compassion.  

But how could they not?

With a history that involved many struggles, the Bahamian people worked through everything together and emerged as a population that’s full of life and love.

The best part?

You can experience their astonishing culture as well!

Here are 6 lessons that I learned from the Bahamian culture.


Wrecking Tree Conch Salad

1. Bahamian Food is the Way to a Person’s Heart 


Food has always been the way into a person’s culture.

Why?

Because every culture, every country has a specific and authentic way of creating a work of art that can excite your taste buds and make your stomach feel warm.

And it’s no different for the Bahamas.

The Bahamian cuisine has the perfect mix of flavor, ranging from savory to spicy!

It’s where land meets sea, where the best lobsters and steaks are made.

The Bahamian cuisine consists of all types of seafood. Not surprising, right? LOL. But the food seemingly surprises you anyways!
Ever had grouper? Well, you haven’t had it at the Bahamas!

One of the most unique things about the Bahamas is that, since it’s an archipelago, there are multiple variations of cuisines that exist in each island.

It’s like traveling to different parts of the world!


straw market

2. The Straw Market: Beauty at the Hands of a Local 


If there is one building in the Bahamas that deserves a spot in every local’s heart, it’s the Straw Market.

Why?

The Straw Market was with them their whole life!

It has served as more than just a building filled with souvenirs to collect and bring home.

Reality is:

It serves as an opportunity for Bahamian locals to make handmade crafts and make an “okay” salary. It’s a part of their financial lives and regular lives.

This piece of art has survived and evolved from a hurricane that devastated the Bahamas.

It was where the largest straw industry emerged, and now it plays a humongous role on the local’s day-to-day lives.

The best part about all of this?

Without a doubt, it’s the best place to meet new locals and listen to their stories about the past and present.

While it is known for haggling and getting the cheapest price for your purchase, try to appreciate the stories from the locals.


3. Friendliness like You’ve Never Experienced Before 


The Bahamian culture prioritizes one main topic with thousands of synonyms:

Hospitality, kindness, and the ability to make anyone feel like a friend.

And it’s outstanding how their culture focuses on celebrating the good and accepting the kindness exposed by the other party.

Why?

Because that’s the Bahamian way.

No matter where you are, there will always be someone there to help you.

If you are lost, they will be your personal tour guide. If you are hungry, they will be the head of the food tour, and if you are looking to have fun, they will show you the best time in the world.

That’s just who they are.

And if there is one tip that I would give to anyone visiting the Bahamas it would be to talk to the locals and try to make friends along the way.

Regret. None.

Junkanoo

4. Junkanoo: The Most Famous Parade Around 


The Junkanoo Festival is the best parade I’ve ever been to in my life.

Remember when I said that their culture is full of happiness, joy and the gathering of people to celebrate the colorful art of life?

Well, Junkanoo is the exact definition of that statement.

In a nutshell, it’s the Mardi Gras of the Bahamas.

Streets are filled with traditional music, colorful costumes representing their magical art, people laughing and dancing, and crowds of supporters cheering.

This festival is so dazzling and so thrilling that you will notice your heart and soul dancing to the rhythm of the drums beating, cowbells clanking, and horns blowing.

But it gets better:

Not only do you behold such a lively show, but you also experience the culture and the celebrations that the local people have.

They celebrate the happiness rather than the sadness, they celebrate the good rather than the bad, and they celebrate the joy in living life to the fullest.

Yet they never forget:

It’s the closest link to the history of the Bahamas and its ties with the African heritage.

And for Junkanoo, there is one sentence that perfectly describes it:

The most indigenous festival that brings all parts of life together to celebrate authentic Bahamian culture.

Follow Me to a Land of Magic

5. The Colorful Buildings

Trekking through the streets of Nassau is a dream!

The sun shining down on everyone, air clear, cool breeze, people eating and walking, and the colorful buildings that provide a beautiful picturesque landscape of Bahamian architecture.

You have the pink, the yellow, the blue, and even the white buildings that represent something more.

To be honest:

I have no idea what the colors mean, but I can tell you this. The vibrant colors represent something that glows in every Bahamian local.

It’s the eye-popping hue that makes our hearts adore the architecture that the Bahamas holds.

And I learned that these colorful buildings reinforce the idea that the Bahamas stray away from darkness and focus on the brighter things in the future and present.

Kind of crazy, right?

Bahamian Life - Beach

6. Life Taken One Step at a Time 


There’s a trait that can be found in every Bahamian soul.

What is it?

Relaxation and the art of taking things as calmly and peacefully as possible.

The Bahamian people lack that hustle and bustle of the hectic city life. Which is good, don’t get me wrong.

The crazy part?

It’s so remarkably amazing.

Their lifestyle is easy-going, and every local I talked to had nothing but a smile on their face and positive energy that made you feel comfortable.

And it isn’t only on the main island of Nassau!

From Long Island to the Grand Bahamas to Exuma, all you will encounter are friendly people living their life as calm and relaxing as possible.

It’s something that every Bahamian has.

The best part?

It teaches us to really appreciate the relaxing lifestyle that they have.

Our day to day lives are filled with chaos. And we have all experienced it.

Doesn’t this sound familiar?

“Am I going to be late to work? Damn! Am I ever going to get out of this damn traffic? I just need a day to relax!”  

Yea, sadly we can all relate to that.

But in the Bahamas, it’s different.

They take life one step at a time and enjoy it to the fullest. Worries, struggles, and desperation can all come by, but at the end of the day, they preserve through their mindset of serenity and the idea that life will always work itself out.

And I can’t thank the Bahamas for teaching me that.

---

The Bahamian culture has the best blend of views.

Celebrate to show how good life is and relax to appreciate and sink in all the gracious gifts of life.

Their culture will forever resonate with me.

Bottom line?

You need to go and experience the Bahamian culture for yourself.

You won’t regret and, without a doubt, you won’t regret it!

2018 is going to be filled with Moments of Yes! I pledge this year to shout a big resounding YES to all new opportunities and exciting adventures that come my way. I’ve been inspired by Well Yes!® Soups to say YES!

Just a few years ago I was working full time at a tech company. I was making great money but I was always exhausted and completely dissatisfied with life. I had plenty of stability but I was lashing out by causing conflict with my co-workers and creating unnecessary drama.

My dream in life has always been to travel the world. I spent many years in a rock band and had the opportunity to tour with my best friends but ultimately, being the lead singer in a band did not make me happy. I didn’t realize that there was a job out there just allowed me to travel and write, which didn’t include all the stress associated with being in a rock band (it's so stressful!)

Once I discovered travel writing last year, I went for it 100% with full force! I made tons of progress but there is still tons to be made. This year I want to say yes to traveling once a month internationally, getting paid for it, and inspiring others to do the same. I want to inspire all those who want to travel in the new year to set goals for their travel and go for it! Many believe that you have to be rich to travel but everyone can afford to travel and take a vacation. You just need to set an intention and plan meticulously.

Travel to me is as fulfilling and comforting as a hearty bowl of Well Yes!® Soup. It fills me with joy and fuels me to strive to create and inspire others.

My goal this year is to travel once a month internationally and to get paid for it! This year I would like to travel to:

- Kenya, Africa

- Colombo, Sri Lanka

- Yangon, Myanmar

- Anchorage, Alaska

- Kyoto, Japan

- Okinawa, Japan

- Delhi, India

- Seoul, Korea

- Suva, Fiji

- Zurich, Switzerland

- Patagonia

- Oranjestad, Aruba

- Castries, St Lucia

Where do you want to visit in 2018? Be clear about your dream destination, make a vision board about it!

2018 is going to be amazing since I have set very clear intentions for what I want the next year to look like! My goals will be laser focused on travel to the destinations that I mentioned and it definitely sets a fire under my booty because I’ve announced my intentions to the world!

Well Yes!® Soups are perfect for people like me who are searching for fulfilling and delicious soup options featuring exciting new flavors. All the women say yes to life and the pursuit of deliciousness to the max! Well Yes! Soups are a A Soup in the Right Direction®. They are created with the utmost of care with no artificial flavors, colors, non-gmo ingredients, and non-bpa lining.

Both my cats Kitty and Hammy are super furry creatures and Hammy is an incredibly furry Himalayan. Kitty is pristine, she always smells like a flower garden (how does she do that?) but Hammy is a little boy with mountains of fur so he has a hard time cleaning his little booty. (I take him to the groomer’s for a hygienic cut to solve that issue).

I adore my two kitties (my third kitty just moved away because of a breakup <img draggable=” /><img draggable=” /><img draggable=” />) but boy do they make a mess! Both my cats Kitty and Hammy are super furry creatures and Hammy is an incredibly furry Himalayan. Kitty is pristine, she always smells like a flower garden (how does she do that?) but Hammy is a little boy with mountains of fur so he has a hard time cleaning his little booty. (I take him to the groomer’s for a hygienic cut to solve that issue). 

Anyhow, I’ve just redecorated my house with all new furniture and I want my house to smell ultra fresh on top of that. This can be tough with two kitties, it feels like I am constantly cleaning up their fur and scooping out their litter box, I’m like the kitties slave!

I’m loving the new TIDY CATS® Free & Clean™ Unscented Clumping Litter. It’s a gentle formula that is totally NOT harsh and its not at all fragrances. Also great is that no dyes were used in the creation of this litter and it uses charcoal to eliminate all those yucky scents. I’m so excited to have triumphed over kitty litter odor! This freedom from kitty litter scent control allows me more time to spend snuggling and hugging my precious little critters.

You can pick up TIDY CATS® Free & Clean™ at PetSmart where you can find tons of Purina products along with the Tidy Cats line at great prices. There’s also a pet hotel, obedience classes, Banfield vet care and a grooming salon besides all of your pet shopping needs.

Guess what! Currently there’s a timely deal running where you can get a $5 off spa session code if you purchase one 35lb TIDY CATS® Free & Clean™ Unscented Clumping Litter at PetSmart. The spa session is valid between 1/8 through 4/8/18. All you have to do is text a photo of your purchase receipt to 30364 with the code “GIFT” in the message to get your spa gift card!

Many hotels these days are cat and pet friendly but what about vacation rentals? It’s pretty easy to find a pet friendly vacation rental. Just use one of the websites that specialize in this such as pet vacation rentals to search out the perfect location.

Here are the list of the essentials to pack when taking your kitty on vacay!

  • TIDY CATS Free & Clean of course. The charcoal odor eliminating feature won’t leave behind any bad scents after you have checked out of your hotel or vacation rental

That's right! We definitely didn't stutter when we wrote this title. The new year is finally here and it's time to take the reigns on your happiness. How, do you ask? Well, with a little help from author of "The WOO of POO: Change Your Life In The Time You Take a Sh*t ," Suzy Batiz, and the Poo Crew, we give you the low-down on how to be a happier new you in the time it takes to poo!

Wait...what just happened?

Here's the thing. We all know it's a little more than just awkward to talk about the good ole number 2. However, the reality is EVERYBODY does it. Pamela Anderson? Definitely. President of the United States? On the reg. Victoria's Secret models? Absopootely!

The thing is, we can really learn quite a bit about bettering ourselves just by listening to our gut. In Suzy Batiz's book, she has a hilariously awesome take how she founded Poo~Pourri, a multi-million dollar business, by being different and trusting her inner drive. Ultimately, it gave her success and fulfillment that lead to a very well-earned happiness. And in the end, that's pretty much what we're all striving for.

She wittily dives into the ten "Woos of Poo" that helped her and her team reach ultimate success in business and in life. It's an entertaining, insightful, and thoughtful piece that can easily change your life simply by reading on the toilet.

Check out the Amazon page below and get your copy today!


Now we're talking, tell me more about Poo~Pourri!

So, what exactly is Poo~Pourri? The WOO of POO Before-You-Go® Toilet Spray is the ingenious amalgamation of deliciously scented essential oils that create a protective scent layer in the toilet. How does it work? Just spray before you go! All the icky stink will stay below the scented oil layer, leaving the bathroom smelling fresh and clean.

Also, the Before-You-Go® Toilet Sprays are all-natural and proudly made in the USA. There are no alcohol, no parabens, no formaldehyde, only the good stink-free stuff!

Although this product is not yet available on Amazon, check out more information about it on their Poo~Pourri product page.

In the end, happiness can indeed start where it ends (if you get my drift). It's time to take action and start changing your life, one poo at a time. 

To learn more about the amazing benefits of Poo~Pourri and more about Suzy Batiz and the Poo Crew, check out their website at Poopourri.com.

2018 is officially the year of, you guessed it, the travel bug! However, traveling may seem a little out of reach for those who haven't gotten a chance to before. Now, it's time for all of that to change.

As musicians, we had the opportunity of a lifetime to tour the world doing what we love. Even though we were very fortunate to travel for free, sometimes, it got pretty rough with a limited budget. In the end, we learned all the tips and tricks for traveling internationally on a musician's budget.

So, without further ado, I present to you the Girl Power Guide on How to Own Traveling in 2018.

Flexibility is the best ability.

When traveling on long trips overseas, things don't always go to plan. If you're thinking, "Oh, that'll never happen to me," well, it likely will. The best thing is to be flexible with your trip. Also, patience will go a long ways.

Learn the local language.

There's nothing more scary than going to a foreign country and not knowing a word anybody is saying. Sure, Siri can help, but sometimes you won't be able to have access to your handy dandy cellular device. Learning the local language will help you get around with ease in the country you're visiting. Also, it's extremely enriching and good for your brain.

Make a photocopy of your important documents.

It's always good to have a backup of your important documents just in case they get swiped or lost. I always have a little plastic folder of EVERYTHING that I need printed out. This includes hotel receipts, excursion vouchers, photo IDs, and passport. The last thing you wan to do is spend the day at the US embassy trying to retrieve these if they get lost.

Pack your meds, electronics, and an extra set of clothes in your carry on.

This is one of the best tips out there. Several times, I've gotten my bag lost or misplaced on an international flights. It took around 16 hours for them to retrieve the bag, and the flight/travel time was about 20. In a nutshell, I wasn't able to shower or charge my phone during this time. Now, I always bring all my goodies with me in my carry on just in case!

Eat a healthy breakfast and pack snacks

Hover over the image above to start shopping for your healthy travel breakfast and snack! The products included above are Special K® Red Berries Cereal (12 oz), Special K® Fruit and Yogurt (12.8 oz), Special K® Nourish Coconut Cranberry Almond Cereal (14 oz), Special K® Strawberry Pastry Crisps. Special K® Protein Peanut Butter Chocolate Bites, and Special K® Red Berries Bar.

Eating a healthy meal before you fly is one of the most important travel tips. Even if it's a late red-eye, it's important you stay hydrated and fed. Travel can be exhausting and you may be too amped up with excitement for your trip that you won't be able to listen to your body's needs.

That's why I always eat Special K® Cereals. These delicious cereals are packed with flavor and are easy to eat no matter how you like to eat it. Obviously, you can go the traditional bowl-cereal-milk way. However, they really taste good by themselves straight out of the box (don't worry what mama thinks). Whatever way you decide to eat it, own it! These cereals don't judge, and neither do we!

Also, if you want delicious flavor on the go, Special K® Pastry Crisps are friggin delicious on-the-go bars that taste like breakfast heaven. Feeling like you need to satisfy a craving? These are the perfect bars that will give you the delicious flavor punch anywhere you go!

Need a little boost in protein? These Special K® Bars/Bites absolutely own! They're packed with 12 grams of protein that will give you the fuel you need on a long flight or an excursion. Want to learn about more ways to own your meals? Check out Kellogg's Own It site!

From 1/7/18 - 1/13/18: Special pricing - $2.50 each for select Special K Cereals and all Special K Bars and Bites, with the exception of Special K meal bars at Target. Also, from 1/1/18 - 6/1/18: Get a free Swell water bottle with an empowerment message on it via Kellogg Family Rewards when you purchase any combination of three (3) participating Kellogg® Special K® products between 1/1/18 and 6/1/18. Receipts must be submitted by 7/1/18.

You can find these products in your local Target store in these aisles:

Thank you to Living Juice for helping me start off the year right! Last year, I went into work just two days a week at the office and just those two days of sitting in an office chair a week caused me to gain ten pounds! I wanted to start of 2018 at my optimal weight so a juice cleanse was a perfect way to start off the year right. 

Cleanses are great for your body because they give your stomach, liver, intestines and other organs a rest. Your body gets the opportunity to detox and the juices provide ample nourishment. A proper juice cleanse will leave you feeling more energized and feeling lighter and brighter! It also helps to prevent diabetes (type 2). Other benefits are that you should feel sharper, less bloated, and healthier. Your immune system will be stronger, you should have better digestion and any inflammation should be reduced.

Living Juice 3 Day Cleanse

With the Living Juice cleanse you can opt to do the cleanse for just one day or for three, five or even seven days. Each day consists of 8 today juices, featuring 4 different flavors.

Green Vitality: is a green juice that gives you lots of energy and features kale, cucumber, lemon, celery, fennel and parsley.

Fresh Start: this was by far my favorite juice, including lemon, apple and ginger. It works to balance your ph and is has a light ginger punch!

Red Radiance: includes strawberry, beet and apple and features tons of fatty acids and vitamins.

Living Juice Protocol

The first day of a cleanse is always the hardest but by the third day I definitely felt some of that natural high that you get from cleanses! I felt so inspired by the 3-day cleanse that I continued for another 4 days of fasting. I'm proud to report that I've lost 10 pounds! Now I'm newly addicted to spinning classes to maintain all the weight that I lost!

Check out Living Juice, who provided me complimentary juice for this review.

How to Travel Like A Girl Boss, No Matter What Time of the Month

There are fewer things that can beat traveling to any vacay destination, whether it’s the wild steppes of Mongolia, or your annual trip to your parents across the US. No matter what travel adventure you got marked on the calendar, it takes a WHOLE lot of planning to execute. But sometimes, you just can’t really plan whether your “time of the month” is gonna sneak up and attack ya when you least expect it (and you KNOW it does). That’s why I’m gonna give you the down low on how to travel like a girl boss, no matter what time of the month it is!

Pack a Goodie Bag

No, I’m not talking about the ones you got at your BFF’s 10th birthday party. Pack a GIRL BOSS goodie bag. Bring some things that you can use to freshen up from head to toe (and all that’s in between if you know what I mean).

That’s why I pack the NEW Seventh Generation™ Comfort Applicator Tampons. The smooth, BPA-free plastic applicator is designed for your comfort and made with 95% plant-based materials. These Free & Clear, Certified Organic Cotton Tampons are hypoallergenic and made for your most sensitive skin with no added fragrances.

My piece of advice to you: bring a carry-on that can fit all your goodies. If i’m traveling for a longer journey (1-2 months+), I bring a big ole carry on with the whole box. That’s right, the WHOLE box. Seventh Generation™ feminine products are that good. Once you use them, you’ll never go back to the old brand. Also, big bags are in, so might as well look chic while you carry your tampon box on your flight.

Another added bonus of carrying a gibungous carry on bag is you can bring ALL your favorite Seventh Generation™ feminine products with you. Let’s not forget the best of the best Free & Clear Pantiliners (50 count). The innovative PureFit™ design offers an enhanced fit, safely trapping fluid away from the skin to always keep you dry for reliable, leak-free protection and comfort.

Since you got extra room in that massive bag, just bring them all. You know, just in case one of the boxes feels left out.

Enjoy Your Trip Any Time of The Month

Never let your awesome female biology hold you back from having a great time on your vacation! With Seventh Generation Comfort Applicator Tampons (18 count), Free & Clear fragrance-free Ultra-Thin Pads with Wings (18 count), and Free & Clear Pantiliners (50 count), the only thing you have to worry about is leaving your worries behind. Unless you’re clumsy like me and, well, maybe need an extra hand keeping it all together. That’s why we girl bosses have assistants…

Want to know where to get yours today? Check out your local Target store in feminine care aisle or Target.com – check out Cartwheel for offers!

The 7 Best Hill Stations in India http://www.nylonpink.tv/7-best-hill-stations-india/ http://www.nylonpink.tv/7-best-hill-stations-india/#respond Fri, 05 Jan 2018 03:57:02 +0000 http://www.nylonpink.tv/?p=14554 India is a beautiful land with diverse landscapes and varied climates, ranging from the biting cold to the blistering hot.

India is a beautiful land with diverse landscapes and varied climates, ranging from the biting cold to the blistering hot. But the best Indian climates to spend time in are the hill-stations; perfect little pockets of verdant greenery and cool weather round the year. No wonder people flock to hill-stations to escape the summer heat on vacations and weekends.

While many hill stations were established by Indian rajas and maharajahs, kings and great kings of India; more than 50 of these hill stations were established by the British during their occupation of India. Some of the interesting hill-stations include Dahramshala, Leh, Gangtok, Shillong, Dalhousie, Gulmarg, Lonavala, Mahableshwar and Panchgini, Dehradun, Coonoor, Kasauli and Satputara, Yercaud, and so many more.

But some of the best hill stations are Ooty, Shimla, Darjeeling, Kodaikanal, Gangtok, Nainital, Mussorie, and Kullu Manali.

ooty

1. Ooty


Ooty, is a sort of nickname for Ootacamund, the ‘English’ version of Udhagamandalam. Located in the Niligiris, in Southern state of Tamil Nadu, Ooty is a major Indian tourist attraction. The 2.5 kilometre Ooty lake that covers over 3885 square kilometres was built by John Sullivan in 1824 by building a dam to hold in the water from mountain stream; and is perfect for boating and paddling.

The nearby slopes lined with Eucalyptus trees give off whiffs of heaven. The famous Rose gardens house more than 2000 types of roses, while the Dodabetta Tea Museum is perfect for sampling a cuppa. We can’t forget to pose at the highest peak in South India, Doddabetta at 2637 metres; and for the energetic there’s always the opportunity to trek and kayak at Avalanche Lake.      

Shimla

2. Shimla


The erstwhile summer capital of the British India, Shimla is akin to India’s Rome. Why you ask? It’s built on seven hills - Observatory Hill, Inverarm Hill, Prospect Hill, Jakhoo Hill, Summer Hill, Elysium Hill and Bantony Hill. Jakhoo Hill situated at 2454 meters is the highest point, and gives resplendent views of the Himalayas. It is also the home of a 33 meter statue of the Hindu deity Hanuman, and at an altitude of 2591 meters, may be at a greater elevation than the famed Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil.   

The Christ Church on Shimla’s famous ‘Ridge’ is Northern India’s second oldest church, and can be seen from across the city. Shimla also has a number of local markets and fairs to visit.  

Entering Kullu Valley

3. Kullu Manali


Quite close to Shimla in Himachal Pradesh is another beauty, Kullu Manali. Well, they’re actually two beautiful towns found on the banks of the Beas River, Manali and Kullu that have become synonymous with each other as Kullu Manali, and are frequented by tourists for river rafting, mountaineering, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, paragliding and more. The pine forests have also featured in a lot of Indian films, making it a must see for Bollywood fans.   

Kullu Manali is a base for visitors to the Rohtang Pass at the altitude of 4000 metres that has amazing views of the Lahaul Valley. Natural hot springs at Vashisht, temples, waterfalls and other passes are a few of the many sights to be seen.

4. Nainital and Mussorie


Okay, these aren’t as close as Kullu and Manali; they’re about 550 to 600 kilometres apart. But in India, they’re synonymous. So whether you’re going to Nainital or Mussorie there are a few spots you must visit.


Let’s see, Nainital Lake, Eco Cave Gardens, Dorothy’s Seat, Nainital Governor’s House, Botanical Gardens, the Tibetan Market and more in Nainital. And if you visit Mussorie there’s the Camel’s Back Road, Gun Hill, Lal Tibba, Clouds End, Kempty Falls and of course Jabarkhet Wildlife Reserve.

Kodaikanal

5. Kodaikanal


Grassy hills and waterfalls, wooded forests and a beautiful manmade lake make Kodaikanal a lovely holiday spot. On our way into the Kodaikanal Wildlife Sanctuary, our driver stopped a number of times to point out different birds and monkeys, and flying squirrels. We tried to take pics of those squirrels mid flight, where they looked like doormats, but our phones just couldn’t click good enough. Our driver didn’t think it was safe to stop multiple times, so we were left without the pics.

You can also here a whistling sound at times, which he told was a certain type of insect moving through the trees in a swarm. Not crickets, but I forgot the name. Once inside the park there’s much to see, the beautiful lake for boating, surrounded by a paved path for walking, bicycling and horse riding nearby, although I felt real sorry for the state the horses were in. The park is also home to bison that are allowed to roam free in certain areas.         

Fruits are extremely cheap here and we came back with kilograms of them – avocados, strawberries, and more. Must visit sights include the Dolphins Nose, Pillar Rock, Berijam Lake and forest, Kodaikanal Solar Observatory, the now commercialised Coakers Walk, Bryant Park, and the Shembaganur Museum of Natural History.

Berijam Forest also known as Medicine requires special permission from the forest guard for entry, since the forest is home to certain mushrooms and trees that produce hallucinogenic effects.

Gangtok

6. Gangtok

The hill station of Gangtok is the capital of Sikkim. At a height of 1650 metres in the Eastern Himalayas, Gangtok is becoming a popular ecotourism destination for locals and foreigners. Enchey and Rumtek Monastery are famous attractions. Other attractions include the Tsmongo Lake which is very close to the Chinese border, Do-Drul Chorten Stupa, Ganesh Tok, Kanchenjunga Falls, the Nathu La pass, Kyongnosla Alpine Sanctuary and more.      

India 314

7. Darjeeling


In the state of West Bengal is the home of the world famous Darjeeling tea, set at an altitude of 2042 metres. Nicknamed the ‘Queen of the Hills’, Darjeeling is home to a UNESCO Heritage site, the Darjeeling Himalayan Railway where a century old steam engine train still runs up the hill. About 13 kilometres away from Darjeeling is Tiger Hill, a trekkers paradise that is also famed for the magnificent views of sunrise over Kanchanjunga, the third highest mountain in the world.       

Many places are accessible from Chowrasta, the heart of Darjeeling town; the Japanese Peace Pagoda on Jalaphar Hill being one of them. A number of monasteries, hills, parks and tea gardens make for a great holiday in Darjeeling.     


If you haven’t visited these hill stations yet, you should. They are like a tall glass of cool lemonade giving you respite from the summer heat; perfect nests in the hills, to withdraw and relax. I really like my list of top 7 hill stations. Of course, since there are over 70 beautiful hill stations in India, every opinion is subjective. Maybe you liked a different hill station more? Tell me which one and tell me why?
