Tulshibaug and Lakshmi Road

I love Tulshibaug and Lakshmi road. It is quintessentially Pune. Especially Tulshibaug. That is where hustle and bustle meets calm and quiet. Here are some random shots of my favourite places on Lakshmi Road and in Tulshibaug.

 The Khadi store has some amazing bags and skincare. Neon Soap, scrubs, oils and the works at reasonable rates. Jyuss. Can't afford forest essentials, this might be for you :)

 Neon madness continues in one of the numerous weddingy clothing stores. A tip: Explore the smaller boutiques for wedding clothes. The bigger ones will blind you with their prices and their clothes.
For some custom made goodiness, hit Lunkad or Fashion fabrics. Pick your cloth of choice and then head to the lace shops in tulshibaug to pick out the perfect embellishments. There is one in Tulshibaug (Abhinav or Anurag). Go to the mall near the Basil hotel where there is a lace shop too.

Pretty Prints in Bombay Dyeing on Laksmi Road

Taken outside a tea store opposite Bombay Dyeing on L:akshmi Road. Along with a variety of teas, they sell unsweetened cocoa ( for those who miss their Hershey's fix)

Onto Tulshibaug now :)

Candyland :D

Little biscuits and Cheeselings

Energy drink.

Hit a tree? Build around it!

 The Ram temple. This is the old Tulshibaug which still retains it quaintness.
Little utensils or 'Bhatukali'. This section also has some beautiful brass sculptures and knicknacks.

The majestic Vishrambaug wada which now houses the post office and the NGO 'SMILE'. They have some very pretty clothing :)

Vellvette June Box

So I caved in when a little e-mail told me that there would be glittery eyeliner in the box (bag actually). Yes well, I'm a magpie like that. So after many harried and, as I later discovered, unnecessary calls to Aramex (Sowwy Aramex) The pink bag was in my hands. A Hot pink travel bag, that I've been wanting for a loong time, and glittery eyeliner- score! The contents

Toni and Guy Daily Style Shampoo, LA Splash Glitter eyeliner and Just Herbs Acne Treatment

I haven't used the shampoo, so I can't say anything. The Acne treatment actually works. The face pack for acne is effective and results are visible after 4-5 uses. The eyeliner is a nice colour, with chunky glitter, but it doesn't look patchy :) In keeping with the theme of travel, these products are handy and the bag is useful. All in all, not bad.
