Blending in

Hello loves! I hope you have all had a satisfying and relaxing weekend. This weekend I went for a barbecue with friends and today I went for a movie with family. We saw From Bombay to Paris, which of course made me dream of living in France as usual. It’s one of my dreams that is so close to my heart that I often catch myself daydreaming about fairy-tale moments in France. I am officially back in Dubai and that means “back to business”, I am trying to figure out how to live the life I dream of with the resources I currently have. I think sometimes it is important to just forget the rules and simply take a risk. They say you only regret the chances you didn’t take.Mmm easier said than done…

Stylish shorts

Hey! Hope you have all had a productive start to the week and have a chance to have some tea and cake in your break time, or indulge in something relaxing and special to de stress.

Yesterday I decided to go for a very casual chic outfit. I decided to pair my favourite shorts with a grey top and a cropped cardigan. It’s the kind of outfit that I really enjoy wearing on hot days. I think that the shorts add a chicness to the outfit because of the cute tie around belt and the structure that they have. I bought them a few years ago and I have a patterned pair. There was also a brown suede pair in my size that I absolutely adored, but never bought. boo!! I’m attempting to update my blog daily so stay tuned for more outfit posts in the future.

Sorry for the lack of makeup, but I only decided to put makeup on later on in the evening before going out.  Image

I was wearing a matching outfit with one of my favourite bloggers Kristina Bazan!! Matching colour way for the win, great minds think alike 😉 Need to get myself some pretty Valentino heels though! swoon..

When Chiara Ferragni came to visit

Hey everyone!

Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad came to Dubai last week(12th-15th)! How cool is that?! This was her third time in the Emirate and she came especially for the Chanel show and to launch her shoe line exclusive to Level Shoe District in Dubai Mall. It was a really special occasion because Chiara had her event on my Birthday! It was such a treat and really a dream come true because I’ve wanted to meet her for years now. I have been a loyal follower of her blog and instagram account and see her as my biggest fashion inspiration. So on the evening of my birthday I drove to Dubai Mall to go to this super swish event in the middle of Level Shoe District. I was quite amazed by the whole situation because there was red rope, security and exclusive assistants to help you pick put your special pair of Chiara Ferragni Shoes. There were baby sized pasta, sweets decorated especially for the event and even a nail station to have your nails match your brand new shoes. I bought a pair of Chiara Ferragni Blinking Glitter flats and I was so excited. It was so chic and the service was amazing, they made me feel so special. The most important part of the event was actually meeting Chiara, she is so sweet and beautiful and kind.  She signed my shoes and gave me a hug. It was such a pleasure and I will keep it in my memories forever! Don’t forget to dream big! Best Birthday ever!

 

I know it's not the best quality but it's worth gold to me <3

My 22nd Birthday Look

Image

Hello lovelies,

I celebrated my 22nd Birthday on Wednesday of this week, the 14th of May.  I decided to try something new with my hair and wear some bright pink lipstick. The dress is a bargain find from the clothing section in Carrefour. What I like most about the look is that it’s so me. I love wearing strapless maxi dresses especially when the weather begins to get on the warmer side. I think there is something so simple and elegant about it. I also realise that I’m not wearing shoes in this post, and I hadn’t put on my earrings yet either! Shock horror, but I really enjoyed having a chill day at home doing my hair and spending a little extra time me time (My mom even cleaned up my eyebrows), so I don’t really mind that I don’t look perfect.

Lipstick/lipgloss: Rimmel Apocalips in 102 Nova

Foundation: MAC Studio Fix in NW35

Blush: MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Sweet as Cocoa

 

Thank you for reading!

Bisous! xx

Denim on denim OOTD

Denim on denim OOTD

Hey ya’ll
It’s been a beautiful, sunny day today in Dubai and I’ve been very productive as well 🙂 Yay for productivity! I also decided to wear my denim shirt today and show off my happy outfit. It’s probably not the most exciting outfit you’ve ever seen, but I just had to take a photo of it. It was a bit different to my normal style, as I’ve never worn the shirt this way before and it’s super bright. It also reminded me of a super nineties outfit! And as a 90’s gal myself, it excited me a lot. It just feels like such a summery day today. what do you think?

I’m wearing:
T-shirt from Baby Phat
Denim shirt from H&M
Sandals from Steve Madden
Watch from Swatch
*all purchased in Dubai

Bisous xxx
