That Mecca of fashion, the Big Apple, the melting pot, the city of cutting edge style New York city! How does one describe the elation of being invited to the NYFW?
Barely containing my excitement on landing there, I was immediately swept away by the style quotient of this fantastic city. Be it in it’s architecture or haute couture, New York lived up to it’s every expectation.
The fashion week set the ramps afire with the brilliance of designers like ANVEGLOSA, CHARLY NZOGANG, Clothing For All Sizes, MEG BECK, BENNOY and SUPIN.
I particularly was blown away by the cuts and silhouettes of PHEREN COUTURE and VIDEMUS OMNIA. And the Nolcha shows were amazing.
Keeping up with the terrific trendy city is a challenge that I enjoyed taking up. The days were bright and clear but temperatures were chillingly low. Have a look at what I wore during the New York Fashion Week.
Let me confess something. I love animal prints! It’s not the easiest print when you want to be business like in your attire but I may have just about pulled it off 🙂 What do you think?
Here I’m wearing this print on a thigh length full sleeved shirt cinched in with a studded oversize belt. Black leggings with ankle boots of the same colour, a shawl scarf , a work style hand bag and a beret on my head , all in black complete this look that says ‘I mean business’ but softens the sombre tone of work with a bit of fun. And because it was cold , I fished out my black leather gloves to keep warm and keep it stylish!
Shirt Dress – H&M
Handbag – Louis Vuitton
Belt – H&M
Boots – H&M
Scarf – H&M
Yes, black is a slimming colour ( and sometimes thats why I choose it!) but it’s also the colour of sophistication and glamour in New York. No occasion is unfit for black. I probably had some black in every outfit I wore while I was there. In this look I teamed up an ultra-glam faux-fur cape jacket with a high waisted wrap leather skirt. Calf length boots in burnt brown and a chunky neck piece, swinging a leopard print and tan hand bag, and slim cat eye double shaded sun shades. Boy, was I ready to take on the big bad city!
Leather Skirt – Mango
Far Jacket – H&M
Bodysuit – H&M
Handbag – Bata
Sunglasses – Shein India
Boots – Dune London
Sometimes a sporty casual attire I chose because I was under the weather and did not want to spend much time on my OOTD, can translate to the most complimented look of that week! Leather pants, a black tee, a stylish striped blazer in dark green and a surprise twist with bright white sneakers and I was strutting on the red carpet , fever forgotten and enthusiasm reloaded!
Blazer – H&M
Bodysuit – H&M
Half Leather Pants – Vero Moda
Handbag – Bata
White Shoes – H&M
When I decided to attend the NYFW, I knew I wanted to bring a touch of India for atleast one of my looks. But most representations of Indian attire abroad have been colourful sarees or Anarkali tunics and lehengas and I did not want to tread down that same path so I fell back on my Black is Beautiful mantra and donned an unusual leather saree. For the blouse I went the unconventional way with a black body suit, clasped a slim studded belt around my waist ( a nod to the waist chains that Indian women wear). Keeping my accessories light with earrings and neck chain in a modern design, a silver watch strapped to the wrist and a clutch purse with a trendy handle, I’m still basking in the appreciation I got for this look at the Pier Studios at the amazing 2019 NYFW. Now I can’t wait to head back to the 2020 NYFW with more such styles and looks.

Fashion Week After Party
What does one wear to a fashion after-party in the party capital of the world? Out came the glam! A sequinned jumpsuit that spelt sensuous style was my pick. Zipped up my feet in high leather boots and limited my accessories to a chain link neclace that accentuated the gold of my outfit. And then it was Party Time!
Sequins Dress – Shein India
Boots – Dune London

As a traveller I often find myself in places were I feel this is the best place I visited ever and then the next trip I have another favourite. A travel bug can never have a favourite place, I guess. Its all the unique experiences and memories which stays with you as a life lesson. Living in Delhi since ages and then travelling to Goa quite often because of my work, I have always got the opportunity to live the fast life as well as the slow. Experience the city lights and cut throat game of survival and also the chilled out, easy going and beach loving Goan life.
Goa has been my work place & second home since 4 years and I make sure I keep exploring this place. So one fine day me and my friend decided why just beached, lets find out mountains in Goa. After discussing some hot debate came to a conclusion to visit this resort called ‘Nature’s Nest’ which offers many activities along with a eco friendly stay.
What an unforgettable experience it was spending time at Nature’s Nest doing various activities which left me spellbound.
The place was a serene beauty, the people were so welcoming and polite
Nature’s Nest – An Intro
Nature’s Nest is a brain child of three friends ‘Sangam Patil’, ‘Ramesh Zarmekar’ and one more. This Place started in 2008 as a bird watching camp during season. Nature and bird lovers from all around the world would come over here to witness this beautiful phenomena. After a significant 10% to 15% of growth every year, they decided to turn in to a eco resort running 365 days a year along with multiple activities offered by them.
Nature’s Nest is an eco resort located on the border of Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary. The resort is located close to Dudhsagar waterfall and the 13th century temple at Tambdi Surla. Nature’s Nest has 18 plus activities to offer. Activities include: Jeep Safari; Night Safari; Treks to Waterfall; Jungle Hiking; Dudhsagar Waterfall Trip; Spice Plantation Visit; Guided Nature Walk; Guided Night Trail; Guided Birding; Fish Spa; Spring Pool; Bonfire; Barbecue; Adventure Activities: Wall Climbing, Wall Rappelling, Zip Fly; Tambdi Surla Temple Visit; Bondla Zoo Visit to name some.
The cottages are Goan village house type with ethnic construction style. They have attached bath with hot water facility.Located in an organic farm, Nature’s Nest is a perfect place to experience Goa’s hinterland beauty. The stuff of this resort is the team of local youth who has been picked up and trained to provide best of experience for the guest.
Our Journey –
15th August, on a national holiday we also decided to get free from all our work and hectic schedule and take this trip. From my place in Goa, its a 1.5 hours drive to the resort. From Panjim, you need to drive in the Panjim – Ponda road and then Panjim – Belagavi Road. The resort is just before the famous 13th century “Tambdi Surla’ Temple. It was quite a ride. Captivating views, soulful music and me and my friend. We enjoyed every bit of the journey.
We checked in around 1pm. After a traditional Kokum Drink at the reception we headed towards our cottage. Our room remainded me of my granny’s house. That raw touch to it. Huge rooms with limited furnishings. Red floor and wooden furnitures. It was indeed very cozy. Wooden bed with clean sheets and a window from where you would witness squirrels and butterflies hanging around the place. Washrooms were clean and spacious.
‘Kunjan’ was the name of our cottage. The pathways were surrounded by huge coconut trees and many other plants. This place is home to many flura and fauna. You would experience typical Goan traditional cuisine. Right from Xacuti to Solkadi, Bhakri, seafood, kismur etc. You will be welcomed with huge buffet of Goan delicacies placed in earthen pots.
- This was the most fun part and I totally enjoyed it. Not very sure of my physical strength, I was quite impressed with my performance. Right from artificial wall climbing, zip line crossing, flying fox, I did it all.
- One of the remarkable activity was a small trek in the evening to a plateau for a spectacular sunset. We couldn’t see it though as it was monsoon and it started drizzling when we reach there. But to our surprise the view was equally mesmerising. The hazy weather, rain drops, peacock singing in the distance and beautiful water streams on our way to the hill top was totally unforgettable experience. Guess what! even I go to check out the one of a kind carnivorous plants.
- Another activity which blew my mind was the night trail in the jungle in absolute pitch dark to see the Bioluminescent fungi plant. At a particular point we were asked to switch off our cell phone torch and guess what…. We were surrounded by plants which were glowing from top to bottom. It was exactly like radium. These kind of phenomenon occurs in extreme humid and moist conditions. Wish I had a night vision camera 😦
- Next morning we we all set for the trek to the ‘Talde Waterfall’. We had to cover a 10 mnts drive and then a 45 mnts trek to the waterfall. Admist of heavy monsoon rain through the jungle we made it to the waterfall. Straight walks to stiff mountain climbing, we had to cross it all. There was also a point where we had to cross a narrow wooden block over a big drain which seperates forest reserve area and Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary.
It was scary to cross it as you cannot even put your both legs together as it is that narrow. But it was all worth it after we saw the beautiful waterfall. Can you guys imagine how it might feel doing all this in real.
I am not sure whether my words will do justice to the actual experience I had there.
I was in a happy zone thinking living in Goa itself is so peaceful & calm. But this place changed my definition of peace. My first impression was Woow! and then got little scared as we are not use to living in complete silence & darkness away from everything called urban.
It was a raw beauty. All this left me thinking about the life we are living today in the city happy doing activities like net surfing & weekend parties… and off course the list goes on.
– Things To Remember –
- Its a lot of walk over there so carry comfortable and proper grip footwear.
- Carry trekking or jogging shoes.
- Full length pants or joggers for the trek and night walk as to protect yourself from snakes / insects crawling onto you.
- Carrying a Insect Repellent is must, if your not a person who tolerates insect or mosquito bites.
- Appropriate clothing for activities like Zip Line Crossing / Flying Fox etc.
Goa welcomed Mumbai’s popular interiors design store- Vaishnavipratima on 14 September 2018. Located in the heart of North Goa; a ninety year old Portuguese influenced four thousand sq.ft. spacious Goan villa is now home to the gorgeous studio. Specializing in Indianized artifacts, furniture, interior design and for the first time- fashion by Prama and Bhavaa jewellery; the studio is named after its founder- Vaishnavipratima (popular interior designer and artist). It first opened in Mumbai in June 2016 and has ever since been known for its exclusive customized furniture and design for Indian homes.
The collection and style of the second Vaishnavipratima- Signature Collection is more suited to Goan houses and its people as it simultaneously retains its design sensibility of celebrating Indian art. Unlike its Mumbai flagship; outdoor furniture, designer beds, dining tables, premium designer wear by Prama (chanderi sarees and Indo-western outfits by Pratima Pandey) and Bhavaa jewellery comprising of semiprecious gemstone collections are notable additions to the Goan store. Both Prama and Bhavaa share similar aesthetics and ethos with those of Vaishnavipratima of Indian designs and art. The store also boasts of an entirely new furniture and furnishings line (distinct from its Mumbai store) each specifically designed to suit large open Goan houses and its local hospitality industry.
Gorgeous bougainvilleas adorn the large wooden doors, windows and roof of this heritage villa. The store overlooks a lush green patch complete with palms and its newest outdoor furniture range alongside a water body of rare violet lotuses. The entrance is warm and welcoming as the furniture at first sight reveals the brand’s journey over the last couple of years.
The first room of the villa consists of beautifully handcrafted furniture pieces that are strikingly fused into two diverse color tones: subtle pastels and chunky bright pop colors. These include mirrors, chests of drawers, consoles, book shelves, bar units, wing chairs etc that are all made by Indian artisans. Pop art dining couture and various artists’ works are on display in the second room. The third room is the siesta corner- comprising of an elaborate four poster bed with cushions, throws and rugs passionately developed in the current and possible next year’s Pantone color tones. One can see Shibori and block-printing art in various palettes here. The intimate open café area is in the passage and back foyer of the villa and will soon serve exotic teas and bites. Vaishnavipratima Goa will be introducing exquisite lightings and conducting art workshops as well.
Vaishnavipratima says, “Within a few months of opening my flagship store in Mumbai in June 2016 I had a secret wish of opening my second store soon. Seeing its success, expansion was only natural and nothing better than a heritage Goan villa! Moreover, post intensive market research and the current lifestyle changes, Goa seemed like the ideal place for my designs. It is after all known as a ‘Tourist’s Paradise!”
About the founder:
Vaishnavipratima is a self-taught designer, mother, an entrepreneur, traveler and an artist. She is a self- made interior aesthetic consultant. After years of personal experience in designing and re-designing her own home and helping out friends and family with their homes, in 2012 Vaishnavipratima decided to start out by helping others give their homes a makeover. It was in 2015 that she started designing furniture and by the following year she had set up her self titled interior studio in Lower Parel. Today the studio has exclusive, customized furniture made for Indian homes and offers consulting services for interior designing and home makeovers. Drawing inspiration from her travels and her unique sense of style and aesthetics, Vaishnavipratima has created this studio-cum-store to be a reflection of herself – full of creativity and warmth.
About the studio:
Vaishnavipratima is an interior studio based in Mumbai specialising in interior designing and makeover, furniture, and arts and artefacts. The studio and store, name after its founder, is a place for exclusive customized furniture made for Indian homes. Its products are uniquely personalized, stylish and yet functional. It also offers consulting services of complete interior designing and interior makeovers. All its products and services are built on the basic idea of merging.

Yet another hunt for an exquisite eatery in Goa and this time I hooped into Habanero Goa’s first Tex-Mex restaurant. This place offers all three classic, Mexican food, Tex-mex creation and Taxas Influenced American dishes.
Habanero is a dream project of a couple Griffith David, a native Indian and Elizabeth Bowden David, a US citizen. Spending several years in the southwest of U.S. they have naturally inherited the fun culture and the flavours of the Mexican boarder cuisine. Now, residing in Bangalore from past 6 years, they are well versed with the high energy, fun culture and authentic tastes travellers and residents are looking for.
Habanero Goa is the successful franchise led by the dynamic brother sister duo, Pooja & Rohan Ghotage. Over the years Taxan and Mexican cuisines have evolved & commingled into what now called Tex-Mex. At Habanero you get the perfect blend of this cuisine. Right from Nachoes, burritos, quesadillas and burgers. Classic drinks like margaritas and sangria go perfectly with this cuisines. They also have a in-house micro brewery from where you can select your own pitcher or small samplers of IPA etc. Live music, dance floor and live sports, all this you can get under the same roof. A family get together or chilling out friends, Habanero is the perfect place. This restaurant has won many coveted awards including ‘Restaurant India 2017’ and ‘The Goan Foodie Awards’
Few of our favourites were –

I said to myself, Nicole! you are not having your dinner today, Just have your dessert. But fortunately I am proud of decision to drop dinner & choose my chocolate cake with ice cream. It was indeed a very happy ending 🙂

It’s been happening for years and years that people are still struggling to lose weight be it, belly fat or overall body fat. People still jump from one crazy diet to another. We never give importance to little habits we have which can make a big difference. As correctly say by someone, ‘Fitness is not a period, its a lifestyle and a life long discipline.
Everyone is built in certain ways with their unique characteristics.
Biggest problem in today’s world is people are running after getting that so called photoshopped perfect body.
I would only say except yourself and your body. Nurture and polish you own. Be your best self. Be healthy. But we never understand that nothings gonna work until there will be calorie deficit in their diet and controlling blood sugar and insulin level, so that body can maximise fat burning for energy. Its all about a heathy lifestyle and your choices. Its a discipline you need to adhere and make a part of your daily routine.

- Green Coffee :- It helps converting our fat into Energy which promotes weight loss.
5. Green Tea: – It can increase Fat metabolism. Drink 4-5 cups a day
6. Psyllium Husk or ISABGOL : – It has amazing health benefits specially in weight loss. It is rich in Soluble and insoluble Fiber. It relieves Constipation. It has probiotic effects, Good for heart.

What a launch party it was…. Right from food to ambiance..
Music to decor. Everything was on point.
Everybody was so hospitable. Special thanks to Chef for taking such good care of us.
And after watching all the crazy videos of Mr. Drunken Botanist, we finally got to meet this young talent.
Yet another party place to be in Cyber Hub.. but guess what….
IT HAS STOLEN THE SPOTLIGHT
These guys knows the formula very well.
Highlights were the cocktails
Salmon Pizza & Lichi Basil cocktail was too good
BUT my favourite is the Pork Belly dish among all. It was one dish, I’m still carrying the flavour in my taste buds.
And last not the least.. the dessert was superb
It was the perfect Happy Ending of the “Drunken Botanist” story.
Great job guys.
A Sunday well spend with friends and special Eid Menu at Laila’s Cafe. It’s never too late to celebrate any festival so we did the same.
The cafe will provide you taste of both good food & fashion. She has a boutique in the cafe where you can find beach wear and casual clothing. Love the hippie vibes and the Boho designs. Indulge in shopping and good food under one roof.
Laila Fathima is a sweetheart. Loves to cook and you will have a lovely time spending at her cafe. She often visited GOA for holidays and fell in love with the place like many of us. Her love for Goa was strong enough to make her leave the corporate career and she finally followed her passion and stared her cafe in GOA. In the beginning she started only home deliveries of Biriyanis and few Hyderabadi specialities. I met her then and now it’s so inspiring to see her in her own cafe.
She cooks her heart out everyday and serves flavourful dishes. Everyday is a different menu and they serve only lunch.
It is in the Anjuna Vagator road.
What we ate –
* Mutton Haleem – I tried it for the first time. It has a porridge consistency with mutton and cereals cooked together and then mashed. It’s a healthy & filling dish. Muslims prefer to include in their food menu while fasting to keep them going for the day.
* Mutton Biryani – Biryani was simple yet flavourful.
* Baghaare Baingan – This Hyderabadi dish stole my heart. Peanuts, coconut and different spices cooked to make a thick gravy and brinjal is cooked in that. I loved it. Very spicy and had a unique taste.
* Shahi Paneer – 👍🏼👌🏼
* Chole Masala – 👍🏼👌🏼
* Lachha Paratha – 👍🏼👌🏼
* BangolorianGhee Rice – 👍🏼👌🏼
