Warren Tricomi is a well-known wellness brand, present worldwide, so when they opened doors in Goa, it was a place I had to try, especially since they’ve been given a shoutout as ‘Goa’s Best Spa’! Most of you followed my stories on Instagram but today I’m going to share the whole experience in detail with you!

My First Impressions

As soon as you enter you are enthralled into a land of luxury and wellness, it can be felt throughout the whole experience, right from the greetings to the goodbye everything was so well done.

As I reached there the staff welcomed me with a refreshing cranberry drink and wet towels and proceeded by explaining to me the variety of massage therapies they serve.

  • Signature Serene massage
  • Deep Tissue massage
  • Hot Stone massage

I chose the Signature Serene Massage and then was given a form to fill which includes all the details required by the masseuse like skin type, parts that require extra attention and injuries if any. I loved this tailor-made experience, the massage is really customized to suit your personal needs.

After evaluating the form she went on to give me a tour around and then showed me to my room which was a super cozy wooden cabin with all the necessities like the cupboard, jewelry box, changing room, washroom and bath. This cabin makes you feel lost in nature and has a great soothing effect on your mind.

I then got changed into the disposable spa garments that were provided. The session began with a feet wash and then proceeded to the massage table.

I then enjoyed this calming and healing body massage that promotes relaxation and releases physical and mental tension by soothing the nervous system. They used Jasmine and Mogra essential oils which restore circulation and really helps in the tranquillity of the mind. Post the treatment, I really felt relaxed and deeply re-balanced, something I was really in need of.

An Arty Affair at ARTJUNA Goa!

Hey guys!

In Goa, it is almost the end of summer. The heat is unbearable and after a super long and tiring week, Sunday calls for a relaxing brunch. So in search of a place closer to nature I discovered this cozy garden cafe in Anjuna call Artjuna.

Keep reading for deets on my ‘last day of summer’ outfit and my super relaxing and healthy Sunday brunch at Artjuna.

Last day of summer OOTD.

To beat this summer heat I wore a strappy yellow floral mini dress. It is a back open dress which is super stylish! I paired it with white sneakers. I accessorized with round shell earrings.

I love this dress, the color is really vibrant and puts you in that summery mood immediately and also the material is so light that you feel really comfortable.

Explore ARTJUNA with me!

One of my fav ways to leave behind work stress and tiredness is by having a laid back Sunday over a healthy meal, and cafe Artjuna is the best place for this if you are in Goa.

Beautifully nestled in an old Portuguese house, this arty cafe is easy to spot. Artjuna gives you some really ‘colorful’ vibes with its trendy decor in an ‘atelier style’ setup. The cozy garden sets in the Sunday mood instantly and has an outdoor picnic style seating which I love as it gives you a chance to mingle with other people easily. No need to worry about parking as it has its own little parking space opposite the cafe.

Cafe Artjuna also has its own boutique where they sell trendy boho style clothing and accessories, the indo western fusion just adds to the charm of this place and makes it even more attractive!

Artjuna actually has everything to make the day eventful, from yoga classes and an MMA center to the weekly movie screening (happens every Friday) and just when you think that’s all, you come across this little library with a collection of books of various languages! What else can we ask for?artjuna goa review

Being a super hot summer day we decided to begin with refreshing drinks and ordered an ice tea and the super refreshing ‘cool as a cucumber’ drink.

We then chose the ‘Healthy Breakfast’ which included a delicious bowl of fresh fruit salad, curd, one egg of choice (I selected poached), brown bread, butter and jam and a glass of dress watermelon juice.artjuna in goa

Albina chose the ‘Humshuka’ which included poached eggs in thick tomato sauce served with pickled vegetables, spicy chutney and pita bread.brunch at artjuna

brunch in goa

The brunch is very copious and is really tasty. I was very pleasantly surprised by the importance Artjuna gives to the freshness and quality of the products.

Artjuna has a variety of tempting smoothies on their menu, all freshly prepared at the spur of the moment! Albina and I couldn’t resist trying out a few so, we selected Jammuna, Mango Bliss, and Surprise. All these smoothies are so yummy. My favorite was the Surprise which is made spinach, banana, coconut, cashew and coconut milk – It’s a must try at this cafe.brunch in goa

Spring vibes at Tierra y Mar

Hi there lovely people,

Spring season is finally here, and so is the question of how to dress when it’s 38 degrees in the day 22 at night.

So today’s post is about my spring OOTD and my mid-week getaway to this awesome restaurant called Tierra y Mar with the perfect combination of Goan ambiance and Spanish food.

My Spring OOTD

Spring Fashion 2018 chai & lipstick

I wore a plunge neck backless crop top. Spring means flowers, and what makes my top perfect is it’s a beautiful floral print for spring. Bell sleeves to keep it on trend. I paired it with high waist black jeans and a black strap faux leather belt and black pointed toe sneakers.

I styled my hair into boxer braids and accessorized with a two-piece necklace and my new favorite sunnies. I always carry a little cap to protect myself from the sun, nowadays I am loving my Baker Boy Hat.

I always make it a point to carry a mid-season trench, to be ready for the sudden weather changes that are so common in spring.

Let’s go – Tierra Y Mar

Tierra Y Mar is a 15 – 20-minute drive from Panjim city. It is a hidden gem that is not visible from the main road. To access this restaurant you have to take a small path through the Paper Boat Collective store.

We were pleasantly surprised by the deco that is very traditional Goan style with the coconut palm-thatched roof, and a very beautiful theme of blue and white, a little hint of Greece in Goa!

Jude and I were super excited to have discovered this restaurant and couldn’t wait to try out the food, hoping it would be as good as the deco and ambiance of this place!

tierra y mar review by chai & lipstick

Tierra Y Mar offers a very tempting Spanish menu which changes depending on the catch of the day and they have a very interactive style of order placement. They explain to you what they have, and suggest different ways to prepare it, so you can choose as per your preference. I love this personalized concept that makes it really unique and made me feel special 🙂
