1. Go for a walk in the lanes of Mattancherry and Kochi’s famous spice market.

Our boutique hotel in Kochi was situated in Mattancherry in the midst of the busiest spice markets of Kochi. The moment we entered the road, we could inhale the strong aroma of turmeric, chilli, and other spices.

2. Head to Fort Kochi for some quaint & artistic cafes.

Fort Kochi has some amazing cafes in every nook and corner of each and every lane. You can either use Zomato or the internet to know more about these beautiful cafes. The best way is to walk around Fort Kochi, especially if the weather is good.

3. Must Visit Kashi Art Cafe for it’s Appam and Stew.

This was a must visit. The decor and the ambience is Instagram friendly. I have had appam and stew before but this was one of the best.

4. After a long day, head to The Tea Pot Cafe to relax.

The tea pot cafe is another popular cafe in Fort Kochi. The cafe is very old fashioned and reminds you old Portuguese houses. You will find tea pots from different countries and in various design in this cafe.

5. Make sure you hire a boat or ferry to sail in and around the port.

Our boutique hotel had the sea view and was conveniently connected to the port which made it easier for us to hire their own ferry in the morning. We spotted two dolphins while we were sailing.

6. The actual place to shop is in the lanes of Jew Town.

From the famous Kerala saris to boutique stores, they had them all. I found treasures in this lane. A must visit for all the shoppers!

7. View the famous Chinese fishing nets.

These fishing nets are unusual and different from the regular fishing nets that you find in other cities in India. The process is worth a watch.

8. Walk around Fort Kochi to witness the amazing wall art and graffiti.

9. If you love home decor, antiques stores in Fort Kochi is where you should be.

This tiny little town is filled with amazing home decor. I saw some stunning earthen utensils, vintage furniture, colourful door knobs, Old frames posters, etc.

10. Go to the Fort Kochi Beach for a beach walk. 

There are tiny little islands in and around Kochi if you are looking at private beaches. We didn’t have enough time to see these beautiful beaches. The Fort Kochi beach is a commercialised beach and at a walk-able distance

Product Review | Vicco Turmeric Cream with Foam Base Facewash

I always talk about how your skin should be an essential part of your life. If you invest well, the results are always fruitful and this phrase applies to your skin regime too. There are oodles amount of new ayurvedic or natural products in the market and obviously, it’s extremely difficult to try each and every product to check what works well on your skin. That’s why we as bloggers review products that we have used and tested so that it’s easier for my readers to decide and use the products accordingly.

After I come back from work all I need is my bed but before that, I make sure that I cleanse my skin and if necessary scrub the dirt away for the day. Let’s take a simple example of your own house, even with windows and doors shut somehow the dust manages to enter and create a mess. Imagine the impurities on your face when you come back home after a long long day. Healthy skin is a reflection of overall wellness.

Coming to new products, we are all familiar with this brand called Vicco. Their jingle is pinned to our head and the moment we hear the brand name anywhere, you know what happens next. Vicco turmeric has been an age-old brand that every generation is aware of. I am sure most of us still use the ancient Vicco Turmeric religiously whenever needed. This summer Vicco has come out with a foam based face wash that removes pimples, blackheads, and skin impurities naturally. It also acts as an effective ayurvedic medicine and helps in healing your skin from rashes, skin infections, and allergies. Finish the cleansing process using Vicco Turmeric Cream for dry skin and Vicco Turmeric WSO Cream for oily skin. This face wash is unisex, unlike other face washes.

According to the brand “Vicco turmeric cream with foam base face wash comes closer to the power of Ayurveda which wards off bacteria and microbes from your skin with every wash.”

The best part about Vicco turmeric cream with foam base face wash is that it’s cruelty-free and vegan. It’s an authentic Ayurveda product. This foam based face wash is enhanced with turmeric extract that deep cleans your face and works as an anti-fungal agent. It clears the pores and impurities that are difficult to remove on daily basis leaving the skin fresh and bright.

The Vicco turmeric cream with foam base face wash retails at Rs. 70 and is available at any nearest store in your city. You can also buy their products online on their Vicco’s Own Estore.

Five Things You Should Know Before Traveling to Fort Kochi

If you are following me on Instagram, you must have noticed that I went on a weekend getaway with my friends to Fort Kochi. All of us did our part of the research on the town to understand the culture and the people.

I decided to jot down five things that you should know about Fort Kochi in case you have plans of traveling to Kochi.

  1. What to pack – Fort Kochi, the fishing village is a small town. Some of the architecture might remind you of Pondicherry but the place isn’t very extravagant outfit friendly. Make sure you carry less revealing clothes like cotton pants or summer dresses that are not too short. Most of the hotels in Kochi & Fort Kochi have a pool, so make sure you carry your swimsuits. Kochi is moderately hot and humid all around the year hence sunscreen and tan removal products are a must pack.
  2. Safety – Make sure you come back to your rooms by 8:30pm because the lanes get darker which makes it unsafe for solo travelers. Not just that but it might get difficult for you to find an auto to head back to where you are staying post 8:30 if you don’t have your own transport. You can always call the hotel reception in case you are stuck somewhere.
  3. Shopping – Most of the things that you will find there are pretty common touristy souvenirs. Jew town and spice market are a must visit for their antiques, conventional Kerala sarees and lungis and Kochi famous spices.
  4. Traveling around Fort Kochi – Autos and Uber are easily available in and around the city. We took a prepaid taxi from the Kochi airport to the town and moved around the village in an auto. There are places from where you can hire bicycles to ride around the town for a very reasonable price.
  5. Food & Drinks – According to Wikipedia and my experience Kerala currently allows alcohol to be served in most hotels, bars, and airports. If you are still unsure about the same, you can always carry alcohol from the city you are traveling from. There are many general stores in case you are looking for nibblies or aerated drinks.

 

Travel does the heart good!!
