Glamping Interior in India

For those of us that must do everything in luxury and style Glamping.com has taken the ability to book the most stylishly-in-tune-with-nature getaways you can imagine. Want a tent in India with pluming and leather furnishings? Done. With locations in North American, South/ Central America, United Kingdom, Africa, Europe, Oceania, Asia and the Middle East you’ll find an exotic destination with a resort like glamp site that will suit your fancy [ ..and oh how fancy it will be!].

Below is the interior of the tents at the resort Aman-i-Khás, located north of Jaipur on the outskirts of Ranthambore National Park in India. As sanctuary for India’s exotic wildlife, Ranthambore is one of the best place to see wild tigers in their natural habitat. The tents and resort is just as impressive as the wildlife surrounding it. I love the leather, wood and white theme that keep the safari decor spirit alive while remaining minimal and luxurious.

Weekend Picks

1. It’s the last month of summer! Time to breakout the minty make-up trend if you haven’t already and release your inner mermaid. From polish to eyeliner there’s lots of ways you can incorporate this hue this weekend.

2. I don’t know about you but when I get home from the farmer’s markets, Saturday or Sunday morning, I love washing the fruits and veggies only because I get to store them in these adorable containers from Anthropology.

3. Brunch on a stick? I want to do this every weekend! Saw the creation on Pinterest and doing it tomorrow… soon to figure out mimosas on a stick. [Image via TheChicSite.com they have other amazing recipes too!]

4. Low back maxi’s, even mini’s. Backs have never looked hotter and I’m digging this simple one from Planet Blue.

Summertime is smoldering here in the south where beating the heat vs looking fresh are at a constant stand off. Keeping with the aesthetic of my earlier post Steal His Style, this is a more feminine way to go in the casual menswear direction. My button up short sleeved shirt is unisex, from american apparel and its tucked into high waisted, black ,distressed, denim shorts, that flatter my legs. My favorite studded boots always give me that edge and flash I love. Add a bow a la Cult Gaia for extra flirty fun. Overall this is a effortless look that’s still on point for more casual outings.

Blackout Bandits Rx Smoothie

Today is my hubby’s birthday and though it’s Wednesday we live in a city that should be famed for its craft cocktails and artisan eats, so of course a delicious and indulgent celebration with friends is in the books for tonight. However the downside is work/ life Thursday morning. That’s why today’s foodie post is inspired by post birthday festivities, brunches and evenings out. Blackout Bandits Rx Smoothie is a great; rehydrate, get your life together and eliminate those toxins concoction. So the next time your feeling down and out seize the day with papaya, pineapple, coconut water and spinach, yum.

Papaya: has digestive enzymes to help process and clean all the poison you consumed.
Coconut water: has the hydration and electrolytes you need.
Pineapple: has bromeliad which is know for reducing inflammation and shorten recovery time following plastic surgery, among other things.
Spinach: alkalizes the body.

White Washed Stable House

Transformed from an old horse stable into a charming country residence in Alcácer do Sal, in the Alentejo region of Portugal.  Architectural firm Atelier Data are the masterminds behind transforming this rural building to a contemporary  private residence. The stable was stripped clean, preserving only the beautiful sloped wooden ceiling and exposed beams.  Contrasting the original wood the walls were painted white creating a bright and fresh feel.  Decor and furnishings were kept minimal and linear, also designed custom by the firm Atelier Data.
