Five Senses: A Manali Travelogue

So sorry for the looong break guys! I’ve been travelling like crazy over the last three months but they’ve mostly been for personal reasons not vacations, so I’ve had little time to write and less to write about. But guess who has been travelling to awesome places instead? My bestie Priyanka Chowdhury of The Purplenista! She recently went on this really rad trip to Manali and came back raving about the beauty. So I asked her to do a little piece for me and this is what she had to say. It is a five senses travelogue where she has listed what tickled her senses out there. Do read on and let me know your comments below! Also, follow The Purplenista for kick-ass beauty advice!
