About Me

My photo
Style Destino is my personal style space bout cruelty-free and vegetarian style. Fashion is not above someone's life and it is irresponsible when someone makes a fashion choice that involves taking a poor animal's life. I believe in style that has a conscience. We are in 21st century where technology has advanced immensely, there are myriad options available and any person with a desire can make things happen. So it is sheer selfishness and irresponsible behaviour when people make unethical fashion choices. Through StyleDestino I share everything cruelty-free and ethical in my style. I do not use any handbags, shoes or accessories made from leather (animal skin), the make-up I use is also vegetarian and cruelty free. Luxury and compassion can coexist stylishly and Style Destino is an attempt to prove just that. Vegan fashion is not about dowdy clothes, cheap bags, or tawdry shoes. I can just easily be vegan and trot in my Olsen heels, sporting a Stella McCartney luxurious vegan handbag while showing off my red lips painted with OCC lip tar!! I travel the world around and never find dearth of stylish, high quality vegetarian fashion.

Upma Style Healthy Quinoa Recipe - High Protein Vegan Recipe For Dinner or Breakfast

Upma Style Healthy Quinoa Recipe - High Protein Vegan Recipe For Dinner or Breakfast

Some of the best quinoa recipes are cold, but when it comes to dinner I prefer a hot meal that's light yet filling and, of course, nutritious. Upma-style quinoa is a delicious and nutritious twist to the classic upma that can be eaten hot (as I like it) or cold. While I love my quinoa salads , a change is always good. In case you didn't know, upma is a South Indian recipe made with semolina and spices, sometimes perked up with veggies. Quinoa is a nutrition powerhouse, its gluten-free and low in calories. It is a complete protein containing all 9 amino acids (a great vegan protein source), high in fiber, and also iron. This simple quinoa recipe (I call it quinoa upma) is my go-to for dinner and sometimes breakfast. What I like the most is it requires minimum chopping and prep time. Its ready in no time and is yet incredibly healthy and delicious. I N G R E D I E N T S  - 2.5 cups cooked quinoa - 1/4 bowl toasted peanuts - 7-8 pieces of split black gram(ur

Creamy and Delicious Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl For Breakfast

Creamy and Delicious Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl For Breakfast

Sometimes you need a breakfast that doesn't only taste good and is packed with nutrition but also looks beautiful. A bright colorful Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl completely meets the job description and is the perfect quick-and-easy breakfast. I was lucky to find pink dragon fruit at the supermarket and I had to get it for making my own delicious pitaya smoothie bowl. Lots of Pitaya Smoothie Bowl recipes on the internet use the frozen pink dragon fruit, but I don't use any packaged frozen fruits or veggies ever. If I am planning a creamy smoothie bowl in the morning, I freeze fresh fruit overnight. My recommendation for preparing your smoothies is to only use fresh and seasonal fruits. They are the best kind and deliver the most nutrition and health benefits! Dragon fruit on its own doesn't have any flavor or taste but it is packed with vitamins (high in Vitamin C), minerals and is high in protein. It also gives a gorgeous pink hue to the smoothie. A delicious flavorf

A Look At The Bachelorette Party Vacation in Koh Samui | Vegan Travel

A Look At The Bachelorette Party Vacation in Koh Samui | Vegan Travel

A look inside a luxury escape to Koh Samui (or Ko Samui). It was actually a bachelorette party for which we rented a beautiful villa overlooking the ocean and set on top of a mountain, with its own infinity pool making it the perfect luxury retreat. We were so lucky to have rented a private villa place instead of staying in a hotel because this beautiful ocean-view villa made all the difference in making this bachelorette party vacation a blast. It was located in the quiet Bophut area, and driving to this place was quite a thrill - it was located on a steep mountain and you had to drive downhill to reach the place. The villa's infinity pool and the magnificent views of the ocean, from almost every bedroom, made it look like right out from a movie (remember Iron man's ocean villa?). Plus, their daily cleaning and concierge-like service (via WhatsApp) ensured we had the best of both the worlds - an expansive luxury space with privacy and top-notch service. For mo

Mediterranean Style Vegan Quinoa Salad

Mediterranean Style Vegan Quinoa Salad

 A good quinoa salad is one of my go-to meals and I often experiment with different variations to have this superfood (if you didn't know quinoa is a nutrition powerhouse and super rich in protein too). I've fallen in love with quinoa for its versatility and simplicity. Just recently I tried quinoa salad with a Mediterranean twist and was totally surprised how well it turned out. The olives and tahini sauce give the salad a new dimension and flavor ... the combination with basic veggies turns it into a simply amazing wholesome meal. What I like most about a good quinoa salad is that not only does it not take long to get ready, but that it is also quite filling too. I N G R E D I E N T S  2 small cups organic quinoa 15-20 cherry tomatoes halved 1 cucumber diced 4-5 black olives 10 spinach leaves finely chopped Half small bowl toasted nuts (pine nuts, cashews and almonds) Dressing: Lime juice and Himalayan salt as per taste 2 tablespoons tahini sauce Black pe

Here's why I ditched plastic straws and you should too: Time To Stop Sucking!

Here's why I ditched plastic straws and you should too: Time To Stop Sucking!

We're a matcha made in heaven. When I want a quick boost of energy and stay wide awake, I have my matcha latte (prefer it iced) and never with plastic straws (you can find my perfect matcha latte recipe here ). Did you notice the bamboo straw in the picture above? I'm so glad I could finally get my hands on the reusable bamboo straws. My pledge at Faeth Sustainable & Positive Change event in March was to ditch plastic straws and I am 80% there. Why no straws? I've seen heartbreaking videos of rescuers taking out plastic straws from the nose of sea turtles and read about being stuck inside penguins and others animals, killing them. Plus, the straws can't be recycled so they end up in landfill breaking down and releasing toxins. Too put things into perspective, let me share some statistics and facts {I am after all a former economics and finance student and wealth manager - I understand it better with numbers}. Plastic takes over 200 years to decompose - but

Matcha is arguably enjoying it's fad status right now, and the world seems to be obsessed by it. The most popular of it's uses is undoubtedly the famous matcha latte but matcha chefs are turning it into everything from soups to brownies and even ice-creams. These Japanese green tea has become a must-have ingredient of the wellness freaks {like me}.

The leaves are steamed, stemmed, and de-vined before being stone-ground into very fine powder. Why matcha latte is good for you? Matcha powder is considered a nutritional powerhouse. It contains a unique, potent class of antioxidant known as catechins, which aren't found in other foods. Let's say, among antioxidants, catechins are the most potent and benefic

Anantara's Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort: A Luxury Oasis In the Middle Of The Desert

A weekend at Qasr Al Sarab located in the middle of Liwa desert was more than I'd hoped for. An oasis in the middle-of-the-desert that allows you to disconnect from the muddied mind of modern lives and experience the luxury of pristine nature in the beautiful desert setting, where there is only the beauty of golden sands for as far as you can see, and beyond, beautiful sunset and sunrise to marvel at the nature yet understand the fragile nature of our existence and reflect about our life and its journey, and evenings under the beauty of stars. Our escape to this beautiful and majestic desert resort was one that definitely left me enchanted and an amazing service that made it a holiday worth its while!
