Lara Ties The Knot

Bollywood actress Lara Dutta, is one of few actresses who prefers to keep her personal life just that – Personal; and she proved that when she got married on the 19th Feb in Goa to tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi. The bride and groom exchanged their Christian wedding vows amongst scenic settings of beaches and lovely greenery at the stunning Portuguese venue, Taj Aguada. The highlight of the ceremony was the couple exchanging heartfelt vows. Here’s what Mahesh said, “When I first met you, this day was a dream. Today it is reality. When I’m on the tour, not a day goes by without me wishing I was home with you instead, so even when I’m gone I’m with you. You are my companion, partner and best friend. I promise to stick by you through hits and flops. I look forward to growing old with you.” Lara got very emotional and was teary as she said, “I promise to return your serves and volley alongside you.

Definitely important. She’s definitely had the most influence on me, throughout my life and even now I see a lot of her coming out – even in my facial expressions. I mean, when I was younger, a lot of people said ‘oh, you look like...

Polaris World – Spain, Murcia

I recently went to the lovely city of Murcia is Spain and stayed at the Intercontinental La Torre Hotel run by Polaris World. The weather was amazing, considering it was pouring down in the UK! I had a fab time and had never realised how lovely Polaris World resorts are until I went on this trip…so thought I’d share it with you all…. Forget anything that is etched into the collective consciousness about Spanish developers.  Forget about low quality construction, high density, unfinished developments and – most of all – the dreaded “land grab.” Instead, understand Polaris World, perhaps...
