About me


Hi..!! My name is Akanksha Thakral.

I was born and brought up in beautiful Shimla, Himachal Pradesh and now (sadly) settled in Delhi. I first came to Delhi to study B.com from Delhi University. And then pursued Master in Mass Communications for the love of journalism. I started my career as a copy editor intern with Zee News. Then I switched my job and started working with MSL Group as a PR professional. After working with MSL Group I got another great opportunity to work with the tourism boards, I joined TRAC Representations (National Tourist Organization) as a Corporate Communications Manager. In my stint of three years, I worked with Mauritius, Kenya and Monaco tourism boards. I learned a lot and travelled even more during this time. There is nothing else that excites me than travelling to a new place and learning about different cultures. I have closely worked with the tourism boards in the implementation of new policies, new strategies and marketing policies.

In 2016, I took a leap of faith and left my corporate job and started my blog  Travel Beauty DiaryThe blog gives me a platform to express my views and write about the things which I am passionate about. I am a travel and beauty enthusiast. I founded Travel Beauty Diary to talk about the things which I am fanatical about. I am crazy for travelling and makeup. I believe everyone should travel in style.

Right now i manage my blog and run my family business which takes a lot of my time. We manufacture car accessories under the brand MGT and have pan India distributors.

On my blog, you will find travel tips, travel information, product reviews and makeup tutorials. Just to mention few countries where I have been are Monaco, Kenya, France, Netherlands, New Zealand, South Korea, Belgium, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia and many more to name.

I would love to hear from you guys. You can write to me at travelbeautydiary@gmail.com . And i will try to reply to you as soon as possible.
