I’ve got so many photos from my recent trip to Amsterdam and I wanted to share them with you. This is the last post of AMS, I promise! I was so lucky to experience sunny weather was great while I was there. It’s usually very unpredictable, especially during April & May.
As you’ve seen through my social media, I was in Amsterdam (again) but this time with Rituals. I’ve been a big fan of their products since the day they had launched in the Netherlands (around the year 2000). When I got invited to visit Amsterdam, which is where the brand was born, I was super excited! I got to learn a lot about their products and collections. Their sunscreen range “Ritual of Karma” was a collection that I wasn’t very familiar with yet.
I love to scroll through my Pinterest feed and find out what the latest viral trends are. I recently came across this creative lip art: marble lips! I can’t even imagine how difficult it is to create a marble print, let alone on your lips.
One of the highlights during my recent trip to Amsterdam was the yoga class with a stunning view of the city. I’m not really a yoga type because I’m so unbalanced however, it felt good stretching in the morning – especially with a view like this.
I love trying out new make-up looks and stepping out of my comfort zone. I wanted to do something a little different and heavier from what I usually do so I chose to add a green detail to this look. I was a bit skeptical at the beginning while applying the green eyeshadow but luckily the end result turned out great (in my opinion). I did the whole thing; foundation, contour, lashes, eyeliner… Just a full face of make-up.
Ramadan is a holy month for Muslims, we fast from sunrise to sunset. It’s a time for spiritual reflection, self improvement, increased devotion and worship. Keeping your skin healthy is as important as having a healthy diet during the holy month. One of the purposes of Ramadan is to detox your body and release all toxins from within. These tips will help you to detoxify your skin and to maintain a healthy & happy skin this month.
Last month I was invited to Amsterdam by Rituals Cosmetics which is a brand that I’ve been using since I was a teenager. When I found out last year that they were finally launching in Dubai I literally screamed of excitement. I had the privilege of learning more about the brand, experience the brand from the core and its birth place which is: Amsterdam. Along with learning more about their products, we did some cool activities too.
I’m really into clean make-up looks lately; no false lashes, glowy skin, glossy lips and minimal contour. I think it’s a versatile look that can be worn both during day and night. I tried a new foundation for this look & I can’t believe it took me this long to finally use it. I have a feeling it’s going to become my favorite from now on. It also photographs really well!
During our recent trip to Turkey with Turkish Airlines, one of the places we traveled to was Bodrum. It was my first time in Bodrum and it exceeded my expectations. I always thought of it as very touristy and commercial. I enjoyed every single moment in Bodrum and I wish we had stayed longer. It’s so beautiful, there’s a lot to do & see, the food is amazing and the people were super friendly. The coastline of Bodrum is stunning, we were there during low season so luckily it wasn’t too crowded.
Move over marble nails, there’s a new nail trend taking over the internet: Quartz nails. Healing crystals have been used for centuries but it’s slowly becoming more popular in 2017. Rose Quartz is a healing stone that’s now a source of inspiration for a new manicure trend. It’s now being recreated in nail art and it’s currently my new favorite trend.
