Meals On Wheels with Street Kart Lucknow

Greetings everyone! Hope you are all doing good! So, most of you know that being a foodie (and a food blogger), I love exploring food everywhere; and with so many new cafes and restaurants booming up in Lucknow, I surely needed something unconventional to gaze upon and try! Well, in this post I'm going to tell you about a food truck, namely Street Kart, that I recently came across at the newly developed River Front in Gomti Nagar, which has become a street food sensation amongst all generations. 

Street food is hardly a novel concept for Indians. Devouring plates of freshly cooked meals and savouries, right from the corner shop that serves them up hot without an iota of shelter is part of our culinary fabric as a nation. The need to be disruptive of the monotony to stand out and stand a chance of surviving has spread its tentacles to the food industry and some young vendors have brought that sense of uniqueness back to the streets with two words – FOOD TRUCKS! 

Vibhor Khanna, an IHM graduate and ex Marriott employee, started up STREET KART for his passion for cooking. He did immense studies on the food truck concept and presented a layout to his family to convince them to help him achieve his own dreams rather him working for someone else to help them achieve theirs. He always believed in designing a truck that looks exclusive and stands out on the streets of Lucknow to cater people who are ready to adapt to new concepts in town. As per Vibhor, quality food should be available to all, regardless of where they lived. And, truly believing in the merit of affordable meals for all, he sources ingredients from local markets, and charge just enough to cover their costs. Street Kart is a blessing on wheels as you can devour a range of delectable dishes without it burning a hole in your pocket.

These meals on wheels may seem to be a concept strongly associated with the west, but the need for mobility in this day and age makes food trucks a great candidate for just about any bustling city in the world. Which is probably why the concept is showing so much potential over here, despite being such a nascent industry. With 5-6 other food trucks spotted in Lucknow city, I found Street Kart different from them in terms of the machinery and cooking equipment set up all inside the truck just like you'd find in any restaurant kitchen! Its good to know that the chefs are superbly trained and take proper care of hygiene.

With that, Street Kart is licensed by FSSAI, and serves a wide selection of close to 30 dishes on the menu and they like to keep things interesting by constantly evolving their offerings, and regularly introducing new items. I tried Veg Shawarma, Veg Biryani and Paneer Sandwiches from the menu and it tasted just as good as any high quality restaurant food!

Food Trucks date back to 1930’s in the U.S. and are extremely popular with people who want a good meal in casual setting and lighter on the pocket! The movie 'Chef' glorified the way Indians saw food trucks. India has had food stalls and eateries serving lip-smacking street food, but it has revamped in a fancy avatar with food trucks in cities like Bengaluru, Delhi, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and I'm so glad the concept has been brought down to Lucknow as well! Today, these trucks are slowly popping up and needless to say, serve delicious spread like their American counterparts.

For all the people who haven’t chanced upon, or even experienced the joys of eating straight from a food truck, you definitely need to check out the pretty looking Street Kart that is set at River Front, Gomti Nagar to sway you, and do let me know your experience with it. Until next time, happy eating!

My Stay Experience at Hyatt Place, Gurgaon - The Quintessential Business Hotel

Hey everybody, hope all's going good! The past 2 months have been crazy, not just because I've been travelling, but also because I'm kinda working on developing something new. And, for the same reason, Delhi/NCR have become my on-the-go stops. I have been frequently visiting the capital for work and during one of my recent visits, I stayed at HYATT PLACE in GURGAON (now Gurugram), only to experience one of the most uncomplicated stays beyond my own house! Strategically located in Udyog Vihar, the heart of Gurgaon, offering the ideal location for multi-tasking international travellers, the hotel is minutes' drive from the New Delhi International Airport via the Express Highway (NH8) and close to major business and shopping hubs like DLF Cyber City, M G Road, HUDA City Centre & Cyber Hub.

Wide View of the Hotel (picture taken from the hotel website)

Mostly when I'm in Delhi or around, I choose to stay at my own house with my relatives in the South, but this time it was a thoughtful decision to keep away from the family and enjoy hospitality in a smartly designed, hi-tech and modern environment. I took an Uber from the Delhi Airport and reached the hotel in 25 minutes to be precise, which with the Delhi traffic is very rare, so this ride was quick and hassle-free! Upon reaching the hotel, the bellman welcomed me and very sweetly carried my luggage in the gallery while I cleared the security and reached the reception to be greeted by equally welcoming gallery host! It was a convenient check-in with my reservation and I asked the gallery staff to send my luggage in my room until I explore the hotel a bit! 


Its no secret that I'm fascinated by colors. I like warm and stylish surroundings that appear sophisticated and edgy with a hint of creativity. At Hyatt Place Gurgaon/Udyog Vihar, aesthetic combines modern sophistication and casual comfort with a sense of style. They create an easygoing atmosphere for all their guests. Plenty of purposeful spaces, designed for constant relevance, each space functions to answer the evolving needs of both business and leisure guests with flexible options, whether it’s day or night, weekday or weekend. 

Complemented by the luxe touch in the gallery with prepossessing decor and furniture is something you cannot look away from! Be it the white couches with an outdoor view of the large scale parking area, or the running lobby with bright red sofa chairs for casual coffee meetings, the hotel also offers a cocktail bar and a cafeteria to take a moment to kick back and relax! What actually caught my eye was the outdoor seating near the gallery while walking towards the restaurant. Nicely done with climbers and shed, the morning walkers and coffee sippers have a very tasteful spot to chill!

By now, you must have already guessed that I wasn't tired at all because of course the flight was just 55 minutes so no jet lag! Though boarding and landing took time but I was still packed with energy, which eventually took me to the gym area at the hotel which is equipped with multi-functional sport machines with LCD screens to witness progress of workout. I loved how calling the interiors were with perfect lighting to keep you going! With that, the hotel also offers a huge swimming pool at the first floor to re-energize yourself to kick start a busy day. The city view from the pool area is breathtaking and the vibrantly done furniture around the pool is beguiling as well!

I finally came to my room after checking out most of the corners of the hotel which looked lavish enough! Escorted by the gallery staff, I entered my room situated on the third floor only to realise that its one of those 176 guestrooms that Hyatt Place offers with a mix of contemporary and stylish furnishings including different plush bed options! I went in for a double occupancy room, consisting of twin beds, each having a side table and a lamp with comfortable space to walk around too! The hotel is about style and convenience. Their identity of chic simplicity seems best conveyed through their rooms that are spacious with a contemporary design that is not too stuffy. A cozy-corner sofa sleeper with a centre table, a work desk with in-built plugs for laptop & phone chargers and tea/coffee maker, alongside a swiveling 42" flat-panel HDTV with a fridge cabin and multiple drawers, attached to a wardrobe with an iron, iron pad & security locker inside, and free Wi-Fi made my room of complete convenience! PS : The textured window glass (with curtain pully) with that mesmerizing city view though!

The bathroom being of my utmost concern, looked stylish and tastefully done! A big wash basin with a wide length wall mirror above the toilet seat made it look comfortable and chic. Equipped with modern fittings, the bath area appeared easy and natural. Hyatt is best known for their thoughtfulness about the needs of their guests and it could be seen very well with the various number of towels and luxury hair care and skin care amenities present in the bathroom! With that, they even have the option to call at any hour and order any other bath amenities you'd want from their odd-items shop!

Hyatt Place has been created for multi-blenders with 24x7 lifestyles. Being a night owl, I have a habit of digging into food at random hours! Thank god for the 24x7 in-room dining option available at this hotel due to which I could work stuffing myself with food of my liking. I had ordered Veg Sandwich with Fries, Alfredo Pasta, Tiramisu Pudding and Diet Coke. The order arrived in 20 minutes and I couldn't be happier. It seemed like one of those satisfactory moments you feel after a hectic day. Well, the food shop at the hotel offers multiple choices in snacks (like chips, sandwiches, hot/cold beverages, etc.) throughout the day to grab-n-go!

Talking of food, it finally brings me to share with you my experience at the Gallery Restaurant at Hyatt Place Gurgaon with an inviting ambience! The menu offers a plentiful & sumptuous variety of local and regional specialities to choose from based on their individual preferences. Guests looking for a lighter bite can enjoy a selection of freshly prepared salads, sandwiches and much more at the cafe, while the Gallery Kitchen serves hot breakfast every morning. With a wide variety of beverages to offer, you’ll never have to settle for anything less than a freshly made meal, cold or hot beverage, a selection of speciality beverages, or a delightful bite of your favourite dessert. The restaurant offers a buffet selection and also has an a-la carte menu with Asian and western dishes and desserts available all day. Well, I opted for the buffet lunch which included the starters, main course and a wide selection of salads and desserts freshly prepared by the chefs who put their hearts to present you the tastiest food for the foodie in you! Having said that, I was smitten by the fact that the chefs at the show kitchen are always eager to please, so one shouldn't hesitate asking them to whip up a dish you have in mind!

In all honesty, Hyatt Place is one of the best upscale business hotels in Gurgaon (Gurugram), offering modern product design, smart features, relaxed service model, fresh aesthetic, and thoughtful service for the best guest experience. Spread over a wide area in the city centre, the hotel has a huge lawn for wedding parties, more than 150 guestrooms and international luxury recreational activity rooms, meeting and conference rooms, large scale parking lot, a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, etc. and a highly trained staff to cater their guests 24x7 for a comfortable and convenient stay. At Hyatt, they strive to see the world through the eyes of their guests, which helps them to respond to their evolving needs, allowing them to deliver refreshingly uncomplicated experiences that feel authentic, intuitive and modern. By leaving out unnecessary formalities, the Hyatt staff helps all their guests get on with their day through friendly, casual service. Which reminds me that while checking out, the Gallery Host warmly engaged with me one last time, enquiring if my stay was a pleasant one and offering a friendly farewell along with an invitation back for future stays! And yes, my stay at Hyatt Place Gurgaon was definitely worth it!


This post is partnered with Hyatt Place Gurgaon, with special thanks to Niyati Sharma. I'm definitely choosing to return soon to the hotel and stay for a bit more! In case my readers are wondering where to find more about Hyatt Place, you can opt to check out their website HERE and follow them on facebook and instagram to keep a tab of their latest getaway offers. Cheers!

Hyderabadi Food Festival : Daawat-E-Nizaam at Sepia, by Renaissance Lucknow

Wait! Did we just read 'Hyderabadi food'? One of the most exciting cuisines in India, or should we boast like it and say around the world? Yes, the food and beverages team at Renaissance Lucknow Hotel has managed to bring down the authentic flavors from the city of Nizams to city of Nawabs to savour!

Hyderabad is hugely admired for its sophisticated, spicy and absolutely scrumptious cuisines. Like any other historical city, the food of Hyderabad blends royal zest with regional tang and delivers a mouth-watering potpourri of Andhra (now Telangana) specialities and Hyderabadi cuisines that is loaded with spices, ghee and dry fruits and displays the indigenous culinary tradition of the land. Since centuries, Hyderabadi food has attracted bon vivants with its delicate taste and aromatic flavor. The food platter of the city of Nizams not only boasts of local zest, but is also influenced by the culinary traditions of Persia, Arabia, Afghanistan and Turkish nations.

Upon my recent visit to the Sepia restaurant, situated on the third floor at Renaissance Hotel, I was treated with a smorgasbord of finger-licking delicacies straight from the aesthetically curated Hyderabadi menu by Chef Moshin Qureshi and his team, where they beckon its guests to come and experience a 'Shahi' fine dining event. From delectable kebabs to heavily spiced curries to highly aromatic biryani, the on-going HYDERABADI FOOD FESTIVAL at Sepia is a delightful haven for the foodies! Scroll down below to take a look at what all I tasted..


Of all the Muslim cuisines, Hyderabadi is the only cuisine in the sub-continent that can boast of a major vegetarian element. Well, I could sense that from the starters, and it continued till the main course. But first things first, I was served some delightful looking Paalak Anjeer Kebabs which were basically made of spinach + green chilly + coriander + lemon leaves + mint soaked all night and made into a paste, and binded into kebabs while filling them with anjeer (figs) and khoya, blended with spices that burst flavours in your mouth. And, similar was the case with the Veg Shikampuri Kebabs that melted in the mouth right as you feel the taste of cumin, cloves and cinnamon rolled into bengal gram lentil. Lastly I tried the Hariyali Paneer Tikka which was grilled perfectly on the sides, but became coarse on the centre, but were beautifully marinated in the green paste with subtle spices and tasted just yum!

Hyderabadi cuisine contains a variety of ingredients that are commonly used, ranging from vegetables, spices, rice flavors, fruits etc., with tomato and tamarind being the most commonly used ingredients. So, among the widely displayed main course, I chose to taste some Bhaghare Baigan (a dish consisting of stuffed eggplant with grounded peanut-coconut mixture, cooked in a rich and creamy paste) with the other dishes including the very famous Mirch Ka Saalan, (gravy with bigger green chillies as the core ingredient) Khatti Daal (whole gram lentils boiled with tamarind and curried with tomato and other spices), and Paneer Khatta Pyaza (cottage cheese with pearl onions in a tomato based curry topped with mint). Each of the dishes were rich in taste and texture with mouth-watering aromas, and relished with breads that included Roghni Naan (a soft, fermented crisp bread with a tinch of sweet and salt), and Muraani Naan. Highly delectable, I must say. And to top it all, came the Subz Biryani (vegetable biryani cooked with the dum pukht technique) that tasted nothing less than what the non-vegetarian could substitute on a 10/10 scale!

There is literally no better way to end a royal meal than slurping off some derivative desserts from the city of Nizams, that included Khumani Ka Meetha (an apricot pudding, topped with almonds and cream) and Double Ka Meetha (Bread toast pudding, topped with dry fruits and cream). The apricot pudding being a fruit based was however a bit too sweet than the other one containing just the right amount of sugar to resolute with bliss!

One thing that bowled me over this time at Sepia was the decoration at the entrance. The global icon of Hyderabad, the CHARMINAR stood tall on a cut-out surrounded by pots and buckets filled with pickles, chutneys and whole spices, displayed to give an authentic touch to the festival as running inside a dimly lit Awadhi restaurant with a sophisticated ambience that included LIVE music to add to a fine dining experience!

I hope you enjoyed exploring this post, but must have missed reading about non vegetarian food, right? Well, for all you non-veg lovers, my friend Azman Khan reviewed it entirely for you in his LIVE video session on facebook. You can CLICK HERE to watch! PS :  The Hyderabadi Food Festival is up till 26th February, 2017 at sepia restaurant, so you can go and experience it yourself. Make your bookings HERE, and do share your experience with me! :)

The story behind Click Your Med with Entrepreneur Kareshma Khanna

"Women are the largest untapped reservoir of talent in the world." - Hillary Clinton

Hello everyone, and thanks for returning to my blog, everytime that you did to read something new that I feature here to share with you to help you in any way possible! Well, this post is something very different from what I generally write about. Today, I'll be sharing with you the story of a young, inspiring woman KARESHMA KHANNA who has taken the Lucknow city by storm with her newly launched venture CLICK YOUR MED, a hassle-free online pharmacy, delivering medicines all over the city.

Kareshma Khanna, a Lucknowite by birth, is a graduate from Shri Ram College of Commerce, Delhi University and did her Masters in Marketing Communications from Westminster London. A meritorious student throughout, she has a working experience in Ernst and Young, Gurgaon for 2 years as an Analyst and had a very brief stint at Ogilvy and Mather as a Strategic Planner too. For the few years that I've known her, she has come out to be as a beautiful soul, doing good to and for everyone around. 

She is one of the few women entrepreneurs we have in town who works for the people, to help them and to make their lives comfortable in any way that she can! 'Entrepreneurship' as she puts it, for her is like "an educational institution – that teaches you something new everyday. It grooms you, it shapes your value system, and it makes you who you are. It is the journey of learning, growing and creating! If you ask me what kind of entrepreneur I want to be, I’d say a value creating one!" With Click Your Med, she has tried bringing in an extremely unique concept of sitting at home and ordering your medicines online just as you order food and avail quick delivery with lots of discounts; and it also saves time. Having said that, while I sat down with her to talk more about her startup, below is the actual conversation we had. 

Q.1.) How did you come up with the idea of Click Your Med?

Answer : Honestly, it was not my idea, I don’t even know how it came up. I was studying in London when my dad called me and discussed this. I just saw a great business opportunity and did few months of research before I decided to leave aside my corporate job dreams and venture into entrepreneurship. We realised that people of Lucknow are becoming net savvy and they are adopting online culture. Moreover, due to heavy traffic and hectic work schedules it becomes difficult for people to go out and buy even essential items such as medicines. Thus, it saves a lot of time to order online and we deliver medicines. Plus medical bills are a burden for most of us and if we can offer consumer discount it would reduce the cost. Our platform helps consumers “save money and save time”.

Q.2.) What does CYM actually do, and how it helps people?

Answer : It is not about how unique or big the idea is. It is how much value it will add to a consumers life. I feel our platform offers a lot of value to its users.

* You save money – we offer various discounts and cash backs.
* You save time – you don’t have to go out of your office, home to order medicines.
* You can call/whatsapp/order online – it is the most convenient way to order medicines.
* You get computerised bills with all break ups, and you can return medicines in case the doctor discontinues.
* All medicines are genuine and given ONLY after verifying prescriptions. Cold chain is strictly maintained.
* You have an online store house of all your medical records. You get monthly reminders to restock your medicines.
* You get offers services such as physiotherapists on call, discounts on other online platforms

Infact, one can order from any city and we will deliver the medicines at your home in Lucknow. Our pharmacist will go the house and verify the prescription. And, this is the way youngsters can support their parents and grandparents. It hardly takes 2 minutes to place the order. A lot of my friends order medicines for their parents & grandparents from us, and they say it makes their family feel happily connected too!

Q.3.) What all marketing techniques did you apply?

Answer : Firstly, we are making consumers aware about the importance of prescriptions. That is of prime importance to us. We are focusing a lot on Pull strategy. We have a flat 12% off on medicines, upto 3% cash back, a customised account with ones medical records and a medicine reminder system. We are making our product as attractive as possible for consumers. We believe in well-being of our customers and have tied up with different online platforms, physiotherapists to provide our customers with something better each time they order. A lot of tie-ups are in progress, you can expect something exciting for both young and old. We are also doing a lot of BTL advertising. Basically, I want to create a trustworthy and genuine brand in the field on retail medicines!

I am already quite impressed by the concept of Click Your Med and the fact that it is being led by a woman, makes me feel highly inspired too. Women otherwise are generally perceived as home makers with little to do with economy or commerce. But I feel this picture changing. In Modern India, women are showing an interest to be economically independent. They are coming forth to the business arena with ideas to start small and medium enterprises, and they are willing to be inspired and to inspire as role models. 

While chatting with Kareshma, I realised that entrepreneurship for her wasn't too challenging as it might be for other women around, mostly because she has been very fortunate to be surrounded with the best of people. As she says, "Dad is my go to person. Also, I have found my mentors and have best of friends who guide me, support me and encourage me. There are few people without whom I cannot run this business!" From the name of the venture to website development, from hiring to sales – she discusses everything with people around her including her delivery boys. She believes "you should listen to everyone you know, you never know where the best idea comes from", and really that hits right!


For all you women out there, if you read the complete post, I'm sure it did inspire you. If yes, do share this post across and help others to take some inspiration as well! After all, women inspire women, eh? PS : You can find CYM on facebook and if you're a Lucknowite, you should start ordering your medicines from www.clickyourmed.com because that's definitely a good idea to save on money and time, making your life easier. Happy ordering!

5 Quirky Gift Options for your Valentine this Valentine's Day

Hey my loves, how's the month of love proceeding for you? Valentine's Day is round the corners and most of you still haven't sorted your gift ideas for your dear one this time. If it's the first one you're celebrating with your partner, you must ensure to give something that's memorable but something out of the box. I have prepared a list of 5 things you could buy this Valentine's for your Valentine, and I can vouch for the fact that these are going to be some of the most thoughtful gifts ever! 

1. Customised Picture Bouquet, Explosion Box, Biscuit Chocolates

You're really not giving someone a gift if you're not putting your thought into it. I feel the whole idea of presenting something to a person you love means that he/she should remember you and your gesture forever! I personally am a great fan of customised and handmade gifts and something that requires to put in lots and lots of dedication.

I recently came across an online store called CRAFTY AFFAIR that sells all kinds of luxury picture bouquets, explosion boxes and handmade biscuit chocolates, etc. In fact they presented me all three of those very sweetly and it was the best thing I'd received in many years! The bouquet looked highly attractive with all my pictures placed on sticks perfectly, and decorated with rhinestones, while the basket had red feather for a soft touch. The second present was an Explosion Box, which had a lid that when removed, the square box opened into for parts with several other pictures of me and some sweet messages on each one of them from the past years. The big box included a small box inside too, which can be used to keep any knick knacks! And lastly, they gave me a decoratively pack of Chocolates that were actually Biscuits coated in milk chocolate and tasted super crunchy and yum.

Now, imagine gifting all of these to your lover with pictures of you two together and surprising him/her with the most thoughtful gift ever. After all, you cannot throw the bouquet away, and the box will always be there on your table to remind you of your dear one!

Find Crafty Affair on Instagram & Facebook. They deliver all over India.

2.  A pair of Offbeat Ballerianas

Females know it well that men hate shopping with them, for hours and picking up their bags. To be honest, I doubt if even 10% of men know what foot size is their partner. And then, out of the blue when your girlfriend, fiancee, or wife receives a parcel consisting of a pair of quirky ballerinas and gets to know that you (her boyfriend, fiancee, or husband) sent it to her, its going to be an amazing moment to capture!

Frankly, women are shoe hoarders. I'm one too, and I know its never enough for them in their shoe closet! I'd suggest all men out there to grab some pretty pieces from JOLAA.IN this Valentine's and make the girl of your life smile. Jolaa, an e-commerce website has a wide collection of ballerinas, handbags, tote bags, sling pouches, home decor items for women, and sneakers and wallets for men. I myself got a pair of Lunastain ballerinas which look so stylish with multi colored serpentine lines (in the pictures below) and they are extremely comfy to wear too!

Find Jolaa on Facebook & Instagram. They deliver all over India.

3. The Crunchiest Popcorn

Humans love to eat, and you can never go wrong with gifting food to your loved one, or to anyone for that matter. But, regular lunch or dinner treats have become monotonous, and its time you up-standard yourselves by gifting something that looks unconventional and delicious enough!

THE CRUNCH BOX is India's first pure gourmet popcorn brand that sells the crunchiest and the tastiest popcorn pan India. With more than 15 flavours to offer, under the category of savoury, candied and specials, TCB gives mouthwatering options like : Chunky Munky Cheese, Classic Pizza Krunch, Smokehouse BBQ, Dark Chocolate, Mint, etc. For people who are popcorn fanatics like me, will know better how much they want to try the craziest edits of the crunchy popcorn. Trust me this time, its going to be all worth your penny. No expensive luxury items, nothing to go waste. Get your better half a few boxes of flavourful popcorn from The Crunch Box and you're sorted!

Click HERE to buy from TCB now. They customise the gift box as per your need!

4. Peel Off Lipgloss

Talking of just girls, I guess one thing that never is a bad option to gift them is some makeup or beauty products. You can choose from an exuberantly wide range of products like lipsticks, eye shadows, mascara, blushes, bronzers, etc; from lots of brands to name like Bobbi Brown, MAC, Lakme, Loreal, Maybelline and many more. But where's the oddball?

If you want to present your darling girl something wacky and still very useful, you should opt for the newly launched Peel Off Lipgloss, which is available at the most affordable rates on an online shopping portal called SHOPPING24FREAK.

I ordered a pack of 7 South Korean lip glosses since I'd been hearing about it a lot, lately. It consisted of flavours like : Chocolate, Strawberry, Avocado, Watermelon, Kiwi & Red Breen. Its basically like a lip tattoo, where you apply the gloss on your lips and peel it off like a mask after letting it rest for  awhile!

I tried the watermelon flavour, and the lip tint came off easily and painlessly, in two pieces (top lip and bottom lip). I took it slow and experienced no bleeding or skin removal. A red tint remained on my lip, similar to a popsicle stain, even after I tried rubbing it off for next several hours. So, you know its there for a while, and your girlfriend won't even have to cry for eating it up, and even you won't have to feel its taste like a lipstick during a kiss maybe! ;)

5. Two In One Luxe Necklace

You can never go wrong with jewelry to gift to the women of your life! The idea is classic. Women need new jewelry to flaunt everywhere and its again never enough in their collection. But while you're picking up something sexy for your lover, you should pitch on a piece that could be versatile. Like a multi-stone necklace I found on the BLINGLANE website, known for the best luxurious jewelry in India.

The necklace can be worn in the day over a solid tee or at night on a gown, and to top that it can be donned even as a bohemian headgear and that attracted me the most! PS : Just so you know, not every single is a two-in-one, so you should make a wise choice while selecting the best piece available! If you're looking for a fine jewelry set, or a pair of earrings, bracelets, anklets, etc, Blinglane is your ultimate online shopping destination! 

Click HERE to buy now.


With so many stupendous gifting options laid above, I hope this post helped you clear on a choice. Make sure to make your Valentine feel the most loved this time! And for any queries or discussion, feel free to drop in a message to me or connect on social media (instagram, facebook, twitter) and I'll be the happiest to revert back! Have a great Valentine's day folks. Lots of Love..
