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.

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

Your Perfect Matcha Latte: How to make the hugely popular coffee alternative that’s good for you

Your Perfect Matcha Latte: How to make the hugely popular coffee alternative that’s good for you

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}. What is matcha?  Matcha is a stone-ground powdered green tea used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies for its medicinal properties and earthy taste. It's made from the nutrient-rich young leaves picked from the tips of shade-grown Camellia sinensis plants. 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!

Vegan Makeup Favorites - New and Old Brands To Know For 2018

Kat Von D Shade + Light Contouring Palette Choosing the perfect contouring palette can be a daunting task, especially if you're not a contouring pro {like me}. In the world of contouring, Kat Von D's Shade + Light Palette is the most popular - and I must tell you it's totally worth the hype. I recently got this vegan and cruelty-free palette and am totally in love with it. It has three highlighting shades and three contouring shades to complement most skin tone.

My Favorite Green Smoothie - Weight Loss & Healthy Hair Fix

My Favorite Green Smoothie - Weight Loss & Healthy Hair Fix

This has become my go-to smoothie as I am trying to eat healthily, shed some weight and also need to do something about my hair (it's thinning and the hair fall is bad). It's also a great smoothie for those times when we are deprived of raw green food and need a lot of nutrition with minimum fuss. It has detoxifying benefits (excellent after travel fix) and perfect  when we need to balance an earlier indulgent meal. This smoothie is alkalizing, hydrating, helps in cleansing, aids in weight-loss, antioxidant-rich and easy to digest - all this with minimal prep time. I've moved to a new office and have very little time sometimes when I am running around for meetings. This green smoothie makes a convenient meal on days when I don't have much time to sit and chew and have to work long hours. It gives me all the nutrients I need and is super filling too!  Green veggies are packed with chlorophyll and are much needed to give you all essential nutrients and fiber

Finally A Chic Plastic-Free Eco-Friendly Phone Case That's Biodegradable

No other technology has impacted us as much as mobile phones and while they are one of the best inventions of our lifetime, they are also having a huge impact on the planet. Apple sold its one billionth phone in July last year and there are over 5 billion mobile phone users in the world and as per digital analysts, the number of total mobile devices in the world has long surpassed the number of people on this planet (a well over 7.2 billion) ( Source ). Most of us use a phone cover to protect our mobile devices - creating not just the e-waste from the device itself but tonnes of plastic and silicone used for the cover. Imagine the havoc it might end up creating on the planet considering all this ends up in the landfill While you cannot stop using the mobile phones or change the composition of your devices, you can definitely ditch the cover altogether or atleast get rid of the plastic covers and switch to a more sustainable option. For all eco-conscious people, this is

It's Time To Switch To Hemp Underwear - Wama Kickstarter | Giveaway

It's Time To Switch To Hemp Underwear - Wama Kickstarter | Giveaway

Our underwear drawer is the most neglected space and it's time we gave it a little thought and invested in the right undies that not only look good but are also made from the right materials. Even as a teenager, I was always particular about what goes in my underwear drawer. Although I may have skimped on my fashion buys, as a student, I always saved enough to get the best quality lingerie. Over the years, I did my research about buying the right kind of lingerie - the perfect material, and the right fit to set the right foundation. From my own experience and expert opinions, I've come to realize that 'being sexy' should not be the only criteria for buying your lingerie. It is very important that you buy one crafted from the right fabric and has the perfect fit - as it has an impact on your health and skin. Most undies in the market these days are made from polyester - even the so-called cotton ones have polyester component. Polyester and even silk undies are not
