    So you're in Adelaide? But only for 48 hours. Well, don’t worry, we have you covered! Follow our guide to make the most of your 48 hours in the city of Adelaide.

    A post shared by Shivangi Issar (@australianbytes) on


    Adelaide is a city full of beautiful juxtapositions. Walk down the road and and you’ll see old ethereal churches and historic buildings next to modern day architecture in the form of universities and corporate buildings. With a night life as bustling as Adelaide’s CBD, you will be surprised that the relaxing country side is just a 30 minute drive away! Which ever side of Adelaide you may want to experience, a weekend away will surely not disappoint! Here are my recommendations based on my most favourite Adelaide spots:

    Hotel: Check in at the iconic Intercontinental Hotel in Adelaide. Located on the River Torrens, it connects guests to all special attractions and offers some of the best window views of the city. Enjoy a buffet breakfast at the Riverside or try some divine Japanese delicacies at the Shiki restaurant. Adelaide Oval is a 5 minute walk over the beautiful River Bank Bridge and the cultural precinct on North Terrace is a short walk from thedoor step!



    Day 1

    Art gallery
    Take a stroll down the sophisticated and cultured street of North terrace viewing the historic buildings on your way to the Art gallery which was founded in 1881. The large stone pillars guarding the entrance to the museum take you back to olden day Europe. Take a step inside and explore Australian, Aboriginal and Torres Strate Islander, Asian and European art. Need some help exploring the vast art forms? There are free guided tours daily from 11am to 2pm!

    Mount Lofty Summit
    Just 20 minutes from the CBD, take a drive up to the Mount Lofty Summit. 710 meters above sea level, here you can enjoy a panoramic view of Adelaide. Sit outside the café and enjoy a coffee while taking in the breathtaking view, open blue skies and fresh mountain air! In the mood for a hike? Take a stroll through native bushland to Cleland Wildlife park.


    Hahndorf

    Another 10 minute drive from Mount Lofty and you enter Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement, the picturesque German village, Hahndorf. Seasoned with the best of German and Australian influences, this village offers the most authentic food, fashion and architecture. Spend some time exploring the German shops and museums before having a traditional meal at one of the German cafés. Their huge portions will surprise you!

    In the mood for wine? Hahndorf is home to a plethora of beautiful wineries and vineyards. Book yourself a place at the Hahndorf Hill Winery for a tasting and some gourmet platters!

































    Day 2

    Adelaide Oval

    The sight of the Adelaide Oval will get the heart racing of any cricket fan. Walk in side to the wide iconic ground, enclosed by over 53,000 seats. Opposite the entrance, you will see the heritage scoreboard still in use, surrounded by a re-developed and modern oval. If you would like a more detailed tour, you can book one from $19. The tour lasts approximately one and a half hours, and you will be guided through different paths in the Oval, while hearing some unique stories from the guide!

    A museum of Sir Donald Bradman is also here. The Bradman collection follows his journey through club and international cricket, and how he became one of the most admired cricketers we have today.


    Tight on the budget? Just go in and take a stroll around the Oval, it’s free!



    Rundle Mall

    Don’t worry shopaholics, we have not forgotten you. Rundle street is one of the most famous shopping strips in Adelaide. With over 1000 retail outlets, get ready to shop till you drop! Rundle street is also home to the famous Mall’s Balls, which has become an iconic spot for a tourist photo in Adelaide.


    Glenelg
    Time to relax and enjoy an evening by the beach. When you visit Glenelg, you’ll be welcomed by a bustling suburb, with buckets of soul. Here you will see heritage hotels, small cafes, a busy shopping street and a beautiful, big sandy beach. Come sunset, take a walk down the pier and see the light reflect of the water. The most perfect place for a romantic evening, some self – reflecting and experiencing some fun café culture.

    Pro tip:Rent a car. This is by far the easiest, cheapest and most convenient way to travel around Adelaide! Saying that, I would highly recommend traveling by the local tram line at least once to get the best of the local experience!

    Shahid Kapoor is always known as a protecting father. He is very protective about Misha and always try to keep away from paparazzi. But now, He never hides her face from the media and paparazzi. Misha is all set to make her debut at IIFA this time in New York. Speaking to a leading daily, the actor said that soon after the birth of his new baby daughter, he had called up his father-in-law to make an apology for any trouble that he may have caused. He said, “I was both ecstatic and scared. I began thinking of Mira’s father and how he must have felt when he gave away his baby, his daughter to this strange guy, an actor from Mumbai with a ponytail and coloured hair, who perhaps thought he was a ‘cool dude’. I called him up instantly and apologised if I had troubled him at any point.”

    He also added,"I may have overlooked his point of view somewhere, regarding something which may have been important to him, this realisation came when I held a baby girl in my hands when I felt vulnerable. I don’t want anything to go wrong with her ever. I guess, being a man I always thought of as a man. But holding a baby girl gave me a new perspective. It changes everything.”


    Shahid is goals!!

    Kapil Sharma is on cloud nine these days, and the reason is Bharti Singh. With her funny acts the TRP of the show has revived.  She was earlier a part of Krushna Abhishek‘s  show Comedy Nights Bachao. Recently, in an interview to Bombay Times, Krushna said," That he was confident that Bharti would never go on Kapil’s show but when she actually did he was left surprised. " After this statement everyone was thinking that all is not well between Krushna and Bharti.

    Bharti cleared the air in an interview with a leading daily and said,"I read Krushna’s interview, but let me tell you there is no bad blood between Krushna and me. In fact, he called me yesterday to inform that he has said something like this in an interview. I am absolutely fine with whatever he has said in the interview because that’s the truth. We had vowed to each other that we won’t go on Kapil Sharma’s show but that was when we were doing Comedy Nights and Bachao when we had work. We were already working on something, but when I am free and not doing anything, I decided to do Kapil bhai’s show. I don’t think there is anything wrong in it. I couldn’t inform Krushna because everything happened all of a sudden. Even Krushna is doing a show and I am not angry with him. We will soon meet and post a selfie together. We all wish good for everyone and there is no animosity between anyone of us. We meet and party with each other but unfortunately nobody writes about that. People just want to write about fights.”

    She also talked about her reunion with Kapil," I want to share a good news with you. The TRP of The Kapil Sharma Show has gone up. The show has got 2.5 TRP ratings this week. I feel blessed to be working with Kapil. I am very happy Mere aane se kuch toh faida hua Kapil bhai ka. We have so much fun offscreen when we are not shooting. I know Kapil since my college days he used to teach us theatre in our college. I consider him as my guru. Its fun to reminisce good old memories. I miss my old team as we used to have so much fun while doing Comedy Circus.”


    Well, all is well between two!

    Hair fall is a continuous health problem that not many are able to address or tackle timely. I remember how right before my wedding I began to lose hair with each shower and the entire khandaan blamed it on the wedding stress/hormonal problems for the same. Since hair fall can’t be tackled over night, it’s important that you notice or take account of the first signs of baldness. Losing 50-100 strands of hair is standard every day but anything beyond that can be a serious concern. This is where you need to try KALONJI OIL or kalonji black seed oil (black cumin oil) for it can fight baldness and help your hair grow all over again, YES it does!


    Why Kalonji black seed Oil & What are it’s nutritional facts?


    Kalonji is an ayurvedic herb, producing blue flowers and black seeds, which are helpful in extracting Kalonji oil. Nutritionally, Kalonji oil come packed with minerals that are rich source of calcium, iron, sodium and potassium. 

    It has a total of 15 amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. Arginine and carotene are good for infant growth and vitamin A formation respectively. Once you massage the Kalonji balck seed oil, you will realise that it stimulates your hair follicles with essential nutrients and boosts hair growth.

    Benefits Of Kalonji Black Seed Oil For Hair
    #1 GOOD SCALP HEALTH: Black seed oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antibacterial, properties that help in maintaining scalp health. This can curb issues like dandruff and soothes skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. It helps in maintain the oil production on the scalp.

    #2 HAIR GROWTH: Kalonji black seed oil contains Nigellone and Thymoquinone, both of which help regrow hair to a certain extent. 

    #3 CONDITIONS HAIR: Kalonji black seed oil normalizes the oil production on your scalp. This ensures that your hair remains well conditioned without becoming too greasy.

    #4 PREVENTS EARLY GREYING: It prevents the depletion of the pigment cells in your follicles hence its can help in preventing early greying of hair. 

    How To Use Kalonji Black Seed Oil (Nigella sativa oil) for hair growth and to fight baldness?

    METHOD 1


    Use pure Kalonji oil that you can get at any ayurvedic medicine shop. Take the oil on to your palms and start massaging the oil into your scalp. Apply properly on areas where there is more hair loss happening. Work the oil through your hair from the roots to the tips and leave it for min 1 hour to do its magic. Wash off with any shampoo of your choice. Repeat 2-3 times a week.

    METHOD 2


    Black seed oil + Coconut oil. Since coconut oil has a great penetration power, mixing seed oil with it will help you massage the oil deep into the hair shafts and follicles and boost hair growth. Take 1 tbsp black seed oil and 1 tbsp coconut oil and warm it in a microwave safe bowl. Let it be lukewarm and apply it using a cotton ball or your clean fingers.

    If you’re a nature junkie and want to experience the forest in all its glory, Taj Safari is just what you need. When there’s all this untouched beauty in your backyard, why travel across the globe to see something like it? I, Ilina from #TeamGuilty Bytes will give you a download of what the experience is like from Bandhavgarh National Park to Kanha National Park and how you too can plan a weekend getaway to the jungles with wildlife yet luxurious lodges from Taj hotels & resorts. Here's what my detailed media itinerary looked like...



    Day 1: Capital to Heart

    After a quick flight from New Delhi to Jabalpur, we drove to the Taj Mahua Kothi at Bandhavgarh National Park. A long, but serene drive led us to a truly au naturel property. With only 5 acres of concrete property on a 45 acre land to themselves, Mahua Kothi maintains its natural habitat and village feel with twelve identical villas spread across the property. 




    A post shared by Ilina Luthra (@ilinashobha) on


    A post shared by Ilina Luthra (@ilinashobha) on


    After a laid back lunch in the semi-open dining room with a large agar-old tree kept alive in the middle of the setting, Team Guilty Bytes headed straight to the Spa-like pool. While one may assume it would be a large, fancy pool, it was indeed a beautiful boutique pool with a stunning bamboo canopy formed above it.


    A post shared by Devina Malhotra (@guiltybytes) on

    With a sparkling glass of wine, and a view for days, I didn’t want to step out of the pool at all but it was late and of course, the water attracts insects in the forest. The next activity in the order of things was to get dressed and savour some flavoursome Indian dishes at the dining room.
    What more could one dream of as the first day of an enthralling journey?




    Day 2: Cruising through Bandhavgarh National Park

    An early morning like you’d never witness in the city- soundless winds, grass laid with dew, and hard-core jeeps waiting to take us on a safari I can never forget. Driving through the jungle with our designated Naturalist and guide from the authorities was, in itself, a truly magical experience. It came as a shock to me that jungles i thought only existed in Germany very well thrived in our backyard! 


    A post shared by Taj Safaris (@tajsafaris) on





    The landscape moves you- from forest to grassland to ponds, it’s pure and untouched. After a few sightings of some Spotted Deers, a Kingfisher, a Woodpecker and some other beautiful birds I can’t remember names of, we were finally face to face with the number one attraction of the jungle. There it was, an 11-month-old tiger cub, lying on its back, enjoying the bounty of his home and here we were, 6 jeeps from different lodges, eyeing him, waiting for him to get up. 




    The moment couldn’t get any more mystical until it did. In walked the mother- not a sight anyone was expecting. She walked out of the thick trees, towards her son, licked him a couple of times and proceeded to cross the road. Like a boss, not fazed by the 20 something people starring at her, clicking away. The guide said she doesn’t care about the paps, she’s used to people trespassing and giving her all this attention.

    It felt like a fulfilled early morning, with that sweet sighting. As we took it all in, the team stopped at a clean spot to serve us breakfast on a decorated jeep hood. After a lot of chatting and sharing of photographs, the jamboree headed back to the stunning property- prettier every time you see it.

    Day 3: The road everyone should want to travel

    After an unforgettable experience at the very lovely Taj Mahua Kothi, we were finally on our way to the second leg of the experience. Although the drive to Banjaar Tola at Kanha National Park was a long one, it was anything but tiring. The sky was clear as day and the roads were better than our national highways! As we drove into the property, we were welcomed by the wonderful staff who stood in a queue, waving at us until each car reached the parking spot. It was something the staff at Mahua Kothi did when we came in and when we left, but it was heartwarming to see that the Taj team wasn’t done pampering us yet! We were welcomed into a warm little lounge with some snacks and delectable welcome drinks to be escorted to our luxury tents. If i could live to see another tent that looked as stunning as the ones at Banjaar Tola, I could promise myself, I had lived a good life. Overlooking the stunning river was a very spacious deck, bang in front of the bed. Not to miss was that we woke up AND slept to that view for the next two nights.




    Later that evening, the staff took us for a super quick drive within the property to spot the reported animal movement, which was when we saw a herd of MASSIVE Gaurs. Again, a sighting that truly took our breath away. The sky still clear as it was in the morning, was laced with a sheet of stars. We went to bed tired but oh, so fulfilled!

     Day 4: A swim a day keeps the lethargy away

    There’s nothing quite as lovely as waking up to the canopy of trees, birds chirping and some lovely staff member almost humming “Good Morning”at your door! Well, there is and that is to enjoy some of the delectable meals the chef at Banjaar Told whips up for you with all his heart and soul, and the luxurious dip in the pool you can follow up with. The naturalists had taken us through a quick trip of the jungle, from the books, the earlier night. They had educated us about the wildlife situation in the country and managed to entice each one of us to explore what lies ahead of our own busy lives.






    One thing I took away from the trip was that luxury and wildlife, if done the Taj way, are the only kind of vacation you need. The other thing was, seeing a tigress changes you, and it is something I recommend to all our readers.

    Let's Talk about her Makeup  !!

    • I loved how she did her Hair in an Up Do Bun, with a nice Volume at the front and middle, giving her head structure more definition. The hairstyle looked very apt with the gorgeous lehenga she wore.  Her Hair do was done by the Famous Purshotum Hans.

    • As always Alia hasn't gone over board or has too much makeup on. She definitely chooses to keep it as natural and as simple as possible. 
    • The main attraction was the Eyes, Alia has supported a very beautiful looking soft smokey eye look with the shades of brown and a little black , The blending has been done so effortlessly making it look so amazingly natural . She has very pretty Kohl'd eyes , the water line has been smudged to complete the smokey eye look .
    • The eye lash game was definitely on point, With thick, defined and voluminous lashes that made her eyes look even wider and open. 
    •  Coming on the base makeup, Alia has a very very natural looking base, more towards keeping it very light and natural, Even the blush and contour has been kept very light and also seamlessly blended.
    • I love the gorgeous nude lipstick she has on her lips. It has light pink undertones with a hint of brown in it, and it matches perfectly to her attire and the eye makeup look.
    • Definitely Shraddha Naik did a fab job for Alia's makeup look and definitely, Alia carried it off with all the grace .
