    Outfit: Date Night

    Amrita Singh coral branch necklace, Zara blouse, Banana Republic skirt, BCBG clutch, Stuart Weitzman sandals

    This weekend was so relaxing yet full of fun activities. On Saturday we hung out at the pool and then Aneesh and I met our friends for a wonderful dinner at Brasserie Beck. I had the Spicy Red Thai Mussels and Frites and this was probably the best meal I have had in a while.

    On Sunday for Father's Day Ariyana insisted on making breakfast in bed for Aneesh and then we all took a nice long leisurely walk.  Aneesh also asked me to be his personal stylist for a couple of hours and we bought some colorful and fun pieces to update his summer wardrobe.  We ended off the weekend at our friends place for an amazing taco party. My friend Tanvi followed this menu from Bon Appetit and the entire meal was simply out of this world! 

    This past week I have also been experimenting with new low maintenance summer hairstyles.  I have finally mastered the beachy wave look and what I love most about this hairstyle is it does not require the use of a hair dryer or flat iron. Stay tuned this week as I show you how I achieved this surprisingly easy summer go-to look.

    Simple Smoky

    We have a low key and fun weekend planned and includes hanging out at the pool, making Aneesh a special Father's Day brunch, watching a movie or two at home, and going out for a fun date night.  I rarely do a smoky eye (because it seems so difficult) but I came across this simple smoky tutorial on Pinterest and thought I might give it a try for our night out. Let's see how it goes....

    Also if you missed it yesterday check out my roundup of straw bags for the summer. 

    Have a great weekend!

    Quick and EASY Key Lime Pie

    Most of the recipes I share on STYLE'N tend to be Indian inspired or fusion recipes but every so oftenI like to share sweet treats that are easy to make. (here) I am not into fancy and complicated baking but I love making a dessert that is simple, delicious, and gives the impression it took hours to make.

    On Sunday we invited a few friends over for a barbecue and my friend Roma brought over an amazing key lime pie. Roma and I used this recipe and both of us substituted Nellie and Joe's Famous Key Lime Juice for freshly squeezed limes. I suppose if you have more time you can make the crust from scratch and take the time to squeeze a dozen fresh limes.  But I promise this quick and easy version tastes just as good. 

    Roma best describes the key lime pie as "sooo easy, incredibly refreshing, and bad for you" and I could not agree more with her.  Enjoy!

    Stylish Things 

    This past week I have been doing some organizing and decorating and I finally got around to organizing my makeup brushes.  Next week I will share with you the makeup brushes I use, how I keep them clean, and a few other fun tips. 

    I love all shades of yellow and a couple of weeks ago I got this yellow hair clip and this oversized clutch. The clutch was a steal at only $18 from Lou Lou Boutique in Bethesda. 

    My latest interior design project is decorating the master bedroom. We have the headboard and this week we had the curtains installed. I also found two amazing and inexpensive bedside tables at World Market and a friend of mine is going to spray paint the tables white with a lacquer finish.  I cannot wait to see how they turn out. 

    I am slightly obsessed with buying cookbooks and A Year in a Vegetarian Kitchen:Easy Seasonal Dishes for Family and Friends is my newest addition. Even though I am not vegetarian, I consciously make an effort to prepare weekday dinners with fresh and seasonal vegetables.
