Holiday Party!

Hey folks! It finally snowed here. There's something about the first snow that puts a smile on my face. I feel like everything around starts looking prettier with fresh snow on it. Anyways,  I hope y'all had a fun and relaxed weekend! Mine turned out to be a not so relaxing one. We were switching apartments and all I could see around me was stuff, stuff and more stuff that needed to be packed into boxes. But more about that later...

Coming back to what this post is about, me and my friend - who is a fashion designer,  hosted our first holiday party together. We invited a bunch of friends we know from the fashion and blogging world and had a super fun night alongside cocktails and conversations.

The venue Cibar lounge, NYC deserves a special mention here because of its beautiful ambience and some great choice of food and drinks! If you're making a trip to NYC, I highly recommend trying this hidden gem. Whether you're lounging with your friends or on a date night, it's the perfect spot. Also, they have happy hour Monday to Friday between 5-8 pm so don't forget to make the most of it. Though this place doesn't serve dinner but they have lots of small plate options. And since we tried almost everything on the menu, I can totally vouch for their food. Infact just thinking about it makes me wanna revisit! 

Well, I won't write anything further, want you guys to check out these pics! They pretty much sum up  our party.

Lunch date OOTD

Sometimes the best therapy you can get is endless conversations with a bestie! This is exactly what happened over the past two days. RJ had to fly out of town for work. For those of you who don't know me that well, I am a scaredy-cat when it comes to staying home alone at night. My brain automatically starts generating flashbacks of all the horror movies I've watched till date when I'm all by myself. 

Thankfully I had my friend to the rescue, who came over to keep me company. What followed next was a night of meaningful/ meaningless/ much needed girl talk! 

Next day started with a heartwarming cup of chai, and a whole lot of Netflix. Later, we headed out for our lunch date and spent the evening playing pool. All in all, it turned out to be the most relaxing stay-at-home vacation I could have asked for! 

Thank you babe for a memorable time and using your camera skills on me!

Holiday Party OOTD

So, yesterday I attended my first LadyDrinks event.  LadyDrinks NY is an initiative that connects South Asian women entrepreneurs by organising events every month. I personally think its a great initiative to bring our community closer. Over the past few years, I've heard so much about their awesome events but never took the effort to be a part of it. This month they hosted their holiday party at the Empress.One in NYC and I decided why not! 

It turned out to be an evening well spent amongst a group of highly inspirational South Asian women! Plus, I always look forward to going to the city!  This time of the year makes it even more worthwhile when every street in the entire Manhattan is in the holiday spirit.
Other than that, I had so much fun getting dressed up for my first holiday party of the season.
