The Nawabi Hospitality of Novotel Lucknow

Travel June 5, 2018

I had to be in Lucknow known as the city of Nawabs and while I was choosing where to stay I decided Novotel Lucknow. Located at Gomti Nagar, which is a 30 minute drive from the Airport as well as the Railway station, it boasts of being one of the best 5-star hotels in Lucknow that too when the hotel has just turned one. Yes, the hotel which started its operation on May 1, 2017 has an occupancy of 106 rooms which are mostly sold out on any given day. With 92 superior rooms, 12 executive rooms and 2 suites, the hotel is well-equipped to understand the growing needs of its consumers.

Overspending is indeed a common problem among many holidaymakers and it is an issue that certainly needs to be addressed. But how do you overcome the urge to overspend?

The answer is will power.

Matching Michael Kors for Him & Her

Fashion July 20, 2016

When a couple’s been together long enough (or when they’re so new they’re totally engrossed in each other and notice every minute detail) coordination comes naturally. Whether it’s in the way you walk or talk, your reactions, your expressions,or your styles, you fall into a natural rhythm with your significant other –and the world of high fashion couldn’t be happier for you! As a celebration of romance, ‘His & Her’ styles have become a great way to show off your love.

Speaking of matching styles, it’s no secret that ‘twinning’ is all the rage these days. But I say why limit the trend to clothes, shoes and accessories? Let’s level up the game and introduce a dose of high-end high fashion watches to the mix and see what happens! I’ve got my money on Michael Kors watches to create a gorgeous lovechild (pun not intended, no pressure!) of high fashion and fine watchmaking.

What could be cuter than a couple showing off their romance through a coordinated pair of luxury watches? They add a luxurious lustrous quality to a couple’s already effervescent style and love. Of course, a lot of luxury brands actually make his & her styles already, butI think its more fun to keep the concept a little more open-ended and go in for matching yet contrasting models. Keeps the style from looking too cheesy and boring. Contrasting timepieces allow a little bit of breathing room for your personal styles, which is an absolute must for the success of any relationship, wouldn’t you agree?
