5 Beneficial Ways to Book Cheap Flight Tickets

Got your eye on the next weekend getaway? Or ready to take off somewhere? Well, the cost of air travel is the biggest part of travel expenditure and thus, finding a cheap flight becomes much more important. Because, booking flight tickets or hotel is simple and easy, but cracking a cheap deal isn’t. The cost of flight should be as important as deciding the travel destination. Well, to some extent, paying more on airfare can be avoided by following these below-mentioned steps that may help you in minimizing the cost of travel:

  • Try to book wisely in advance: This is the first thing one should keep in mind while finding a cheap deal. If you don’t have that flexibility which allows you to take advantage of super-cheap airfare sales, then you must book tickets well in advance. Therefore, in order to get the lowest price, travelers must buy flights about two months before departure.

 

  • Check-out low-cost airlines: Do not forget that budget airlines exist for a reason. Therefore, booking flights from a no-frill airline is a good option. This is the sure-shot way of booking cheap flights online. These airlines may not offer you the same luxury as that of premiere airlines but, will lure you with extraordinary prices.

 

  • Opt for direct flights: This tip is not for everyone, but it may work for a few travelers. Usually, flying on direct flights is more expensive than the indirect flights. For example, a direct flight from Cleveland to Chennai is much higher than an indirect journey from Cleveland to Boston, then Boston to Dubai and Dubai to Chennai. You should consider multiple layovers to save more money. Though, it will be a bit annoying, but will help you to save more at your vacation destination rather than spending on flights booking.

 

  • Choose for economy class: Choosing economy class is the best way to save money on flight tickets. Rather than opting for a business class, you must opt for an economy class that helps you in saving hundreds of dollars. But, for this, you may have to sacrifice your comfort levels, such as limited dinner menu, baggage allowance etc.

 

  • Subscribe yourself to promotional offers: Travel websites notify you about special deals or coupon deals or the last-minute offers on air tickets. Thus, if you act quickly on them, you can save a lot of money.

 

On the whole, if you are planning for a holiday trip, then you must follow these above-mentioned tips that will help you in getting cheaper and exclusive deals.

A Trip to UAE: Dubai, Visa and Budget Options

There is something about Dubai that is homey and exotic at the same time. While the sharp spices and ethnic fabrics help you connect, the modish architecture and sizzling beach clubs let you marvel at its sight. And the golden sand, well that just pampers you snuggly. Moreover, the geographical position of the emirate involves less travelling hours, which makes for a quick escapade. Getting a Dubai visa too isn’t a hard drill.

The UAE visa process involves a short and simple procedure. UAE tourist visa for Indian citizens can be availed for a period of—14 days (single entry), 30 days (single or multiple entry) and 90 days (single or multiple entry). However, your UAE stay can’t exceed 30 days as per the Dubai visa requirements.

You can apply for UAE visa online. It will ideally require:

  • Duly filled visa application form,
  • Original passport for verification,
  • Onward and return confirmed tickets and
  • Recent passport size photographs (4.3 cms x 5.5 cms) preferably in a white background,
  • Applicable visa fees

A UAE visa also involves an age criteria. Men aged less than 22 and women below 30 years of age need to be accompanied by their father, mother or husband. If you are going for a solo trip and do not cross this age bar, a no objection certificate from your parent/guardian needs to be attached with the application.

Plan a relaxing month long trip or go for a quick week’s break, or better still visit twice and thrice if you can’t get enough of the place. Ideally your visa should take five working days to process. As long as you stick to the rules, there is no reason why you would be denied your Dubai visa.

This abroad trip, like any other, won’t burn a hole in your pocket. A vacation is supposed to be soothing and fun and that isn’t possible if the expenditure exceeds your budget. In such a case, it just becomes a straining trip that leaves you meddling with your finances to make ends meet. But not Dubai. The largest city of UAE is as extravagant as it is modest.

Watches: Your Personality, Not Just an Accessory

No matter how much we deny and try to break the stereotype, a book is always judged by its cover first, before it is appreciated for its profoundness. This establishes my initial nub that your first look makes a big difference, in determining the approach of the person you will be interacting with. While well-groomed appearance, occasion-apt dress sense and a firm hand-shake is the regular code of conduct, there are certain things that strike the spectator more than other things. This brings me to my second idea, which I bring up with a question—Do you recall the famous saying that ‘a man is judged by his shoes (even a woman!)’?  Well, let me tell you that it is old-school. Watches are the new shoes!

When it comes to visual indicators that cement one’s novel personality, watches top the list today. A British friend once mentioned—In Europe, a person who doesn’t wear a watch is not taken seriously in business; and guess what, it is not just Europe. The theory proves to be true across borders and is not limited to the business world alone. Each one of us has a diverse voice, which should be acknowledged and respected. A watch is a strong visual sign that gives you a smart and serious aura, well-appreciated as a social etiquette.

The things that make your watch so noticeable, also bestow on it a major responsibility to showcase your personality suitably; a bad sign is more fatal than no sign. Get to know about the trending watch bands and pick the one that defines you the best. You can easily find these varieties in an online store. Browse through our list below:

Classic Leather Band

Elegant design that goes well across different attires and occasions. Although the leather requires safe keeping from water and high-temperatures, they work best as daily-wears.

Tropic Band

Water-resistant rubber bands with high durability.

Link Band

Fancy bracelet straps, providing a range of options in the material they are made of—gold, titanium, stainless steel, and wood, to mention few of the eminent ones.

Zulu Band

Rugged nylon/leather straps with bulky stainless steel detailing. Suits best for a casual and relatively rough look.

Nato Band

For a casual yet simple and mellow look. These bands are made of nylon, which is durable and water-resistant. Available in a wide range of designs.

Women Believe In a ‘Knight in Shining Armour’, They Call It Lipstick

Give a woman some food and she’ll love you for a day, give her a lipstick and she’ll love you for all her life! A woman knows that her man is a keeper if he notices the difference between her ‘Russian Red’ and her ‘Ruby Woo’ lip colour.

Make up is truly a girl’s best friend and the origins of this have been traced back to the Egyptian, Harappan and Indus Valley civilizations, where men and women both were found to be wearing colour on their eyes, lips and even brows. Visibly, the women folk happen to take it more seriously!

In our society today, we all face a number of challenges, obstacles, gender issues and social stereotypes. All of these social stereotypes come with certain stigmas attached to them—the perfect hair, the well-toned body, and most obviously the flawless face. Media has formed a very superficial and unrealistic image of women, and it is because of this façade that a woman is unable to indulge into her favourite pizza, always worried about the calorie count and blemishes. Sadly, we don’t strive to be real, we strive to be perfect. It’s for such times that make-up comes to the rescue! Make-up brands sell products but what women pick and buy is their hope; the hope of not being judged, the hope of being able to look pretty enough, the hope of being able to grab as many eye-balls as they can, the hope of being able to feel confident, bold and powerful.

However, one knows a woman is not doing justice if she doesn’t own a lipstick shade for every outfit in her closet! So much makeup to choose from and yet we have women obsessing over their perfectly desired lip colour. There’s so much more to a lipstick than just adding that peck of colour to your face. One can go from being bold to playing it nude with an array of colours to choose from. A dull, mundane outfit can be transformed magically with a bold lip colour. A young college girl in her ripped baggy jeans and a crop top with a suitable lip colour always slays through it all.

Lipsticks makes every outfit look better than it actually is! It makes one feel bolder, more confident and enhances one’s features. It isn’t for nothing that a lipstick is by far every woman’s best friend and sticks loyally following her in every handbag, every place and every party. Indeed, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach and the way to a woman’s heart is through the appreciation for the colour she wears on her lips.

Go try out the all new Maybelline Lipstick Range and have a look at the newest additions to the family that has been rightfully inflating every woman’s ego since 1915!
