Look of the day: Meetings all day

Happy Friday, wishing everyone a great weekend ahead. Can you believe it’s almost 2018? Time passes so quickly! Last week  I wore this look on a day full of meetings, sometimes I’m a bit clueless what I should wear to formal meetings without looking too official and formal, so I kept it a bit casual and simple. Find out more outfit details below.

A guide to supplements and how it helps with your beauty regime

Wishing for a pill to magically turn your skin, hair and nails into picture perfect is every woman’s dream. Even though that doesn’t exist, there are certainly supplements that can help to boost our beauty routine. Taking supplements regularly is basically a short cut to healthier skin, hair & nails. Beauty supplements generally don’t look any different than your vitamins. However, they also come in powder formulas, oils and liquids depending on the specific supplement you choose. Think of them as a type of supplement that has the added benefits of improving your skin, hair or nails thanks to a specific dosage of nutrients and minerals.

Awesome beauty products you didn’t know were vegan

Cruelty free and vegan beauty products are on the rise! People are becoming more conscious on what kind of brands and products they’re using, not only vegans. You’re probably wondering, what is a vegan product exactly? They’re products that are free from honey, beeswax, lanolin, collagen, albumen, shark squaline, carmine, cholesterol, gelatin and other animal derived ingredients. Most importantly, vegan products are never tested on animals. Surprisingly, there are many high quality and very effective vegan brands in the market. These are some of the best vegan beauty products in the market

Look of the day: Grey smokey eyes

Happy Friday loves! I hope everyone is going to have a great weekend. For this week’s MOTD (make-up of the day), I wanted to share something different. As you know, I’m a big fan of neutral colors but I never really use grey tones so I decided to use that for this look. It was really easy creating this look, I only used 3 different eyeshadows; a light grey color, a darker transition color and a shimmery shadow on the lids. Below you’ll find all the product details I used to create this look.

Four beautifying smoothie recipes

A few months ago, I attended the launch event of Murad skincare here in dubai. During that event, I learned a lot about the importance of taking care of your skin from within. I also received a few beautifying smoothie recipes that you can easily make at home and will help to nourish your skin. I tried some of the recipes and they’re so delicious, they’re also all vegan.

Tropical afternoon in Bali

Even though it’s already cold and almost winter in most countries, I couldn’t help but share a summer outfit post because this was one of my favorite outfits. These pants are so comfortable and versatile, I can literally wear them with anything. I took these photos during my last trip to Bali. I could dress it up with heels and a nice blouse or I could pair them with sneakers and an oversized t-shirt for a more casual look.

Beautiful tropical showers in Ubud

I’m so happy that we’re getting closer to winter here in the UAE. I can’t wait for it to start raining again. I’m looking forward to the gloomy weather I had in Ubud. During my first week in Bali, I stayed for a couple of days in Ubud. This part of Bali is known for its rice fields and tropical showers (which I’ve experienced a lot during my stay). Despite the rain and gloomy weather, Bali was still so beautiful and I couldn’t take enough pictures!

Review: SACHAJUAN hair products

  I recently decided to switch up my current hair routine and try out some Sachajuan products. I’ve read so many great things about the brand and many respectable hair stylists are using it. Not to mention, the packaging is so photo friendly and “Instagramable”. I tried two of their products, the Moisturizing Shampoo and the Hair Repair Treatment. They look so sleek and chic, I love having these products in my bathroom. However, I’m so disappointed in these two products in particular…

Curly hair 101: How to take care of it

Curly hair comes in many different forms and shapes. Some have frizzy, fluffy, wavy, tight or open curls. One thing that all textures have in common: it can get dry AF! Prior to bleaching my hair, I never really understood the importance of treating & maintening my hair by using the right products. I literally washed my hair with any shampoo that I could find without making sure that it goes well with my hair texture.
