Inside the launch party for Paris Hilton x Boohoo collection!

In celebration of its latest co-designed collection with Paris Hilton, Boohoo threw a lavish party in Paris last week! Not always do you get a chance to flaunt a full pink outfit in style – this party was the perfect occasion!

The party was everything ‘Paris Hilton’ with an all pink everything deco, pink cocktails – ‘la vie en rose’ & ‘that’s hot’ (the icon’s famous catchphrase from the 2000’s), complete with a pink vintage Cadillac and a gigantic pool flamingo! The party was held at the luxurious Hôtel Le Marois, I loved this ambiance – very girly & posh!

The party was super fun, with great music, free-flowing champagne, cocktails, cotton candy, and yummy finger foods. Great music kept us on the floor, to add to the magical ambiance was the famous American rapper Ja Rule, he even did a little 90’s retrospective which was really cool!

The highlight of the evening was, of course, the arrival of Paris Hilton herself, who entered to the tune of her song ‘stars are blind’! Paris looked amazing in the palm print dress inspired by her hometown of Beverly Hills and huge sunnies, she even did a DJ set herself during the evening.

WHAT I WORE

 

I wore a hot pink pantsuit from Boohoo with flared pants and a long blazer, I paired it with white sneakers to give it a more laid-back effect! I styled my hair in a top knot and kept my makeup simple with a glazed complexion and red lips! I styled my look further with my fav geometric earrings and a trendy pair of very small framed cat eye sunglasses!

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

Summer Fashion at Kai by the pool!!

Summer is the perfect time to flaunt those floral prints, a great time to stop the layering trend and slip into something more minimal. And also to play with all those SS18  prints and colors we have been dying to try.

So in today’s post, I’m going to tell you all about my weekend summer outfit at my recent lunch date with my gal Albina at a super cool poolside restaurant at Hotel Park Regis in Goa, called Kai by the pool.

summer fashion 2018

Summer OOTD

I wore a floral crop top and paired it with my favorite linen pants, perfect to beat the Goan summer heat. I love pairing up strong prints with plains, this really makes it stand out. I also went with a printed turban scarf. I advice two prints maximum in an outfit so as not to go overboard.

summer fashion trend 2018

I styled my hair by wearing a turban, learn how to style a turban in a few easy steps HERE and my sunnies from Cocoleni which perfectly matched my pants. I kept all other accessories minimalistic and went with some really comfortable sneakers to complete the look, you could also team this look with a pair of open sandals!summer fashion - chai & lipstick

Lunch date – Kai by the pool!!

Located inside Park Regis is a poolside restaurant name Kai by the pool. Albina and I discovered this place and fell in love with it. From its full of life ambiance to its amazing mouthwatering food, Kai by the pool can be your next destination for a relaxed poolside lunch or dinner. They eve have pool parties regularly in the evenings which go on till 3 in the morning.

The outdoor setting is so lively and full of color, it instills a great energy and promises a great time! The live DJ music really got us in the mood to party and Albina couldn’t help but groove to the fun beats.

We started off with the Kai’s special cocktail.

– Pineapple Pina Colada

-Summer Sangria

Which were both well presented and super delicious. I especially loved how the pineapple pina colada was served in a real pineapple.

For starters, we ordered the Mushroom Bruschettas, Shish Tawook, and Korean chicken Tikka. All the plates were very well garnished and had even better flavors. We really relished the Korean Chicken Tikka (our favorite)!
