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.


The most romantic entrance in Bali!

  Last month when I was in Bali, I stayed at the beautiful Anantara Resort in Uluwatu. This resort had the most beautiful entrance and I just had to take some photos there. It seemed like the perfect location to shoot wedding photos, the giant stairs and huge pots of beautiful colorful flowers looked stunning! It was quite hot during the day but it was definitely worth the photos.

How I spent summer in the UAE

  As much as I love living in the UAE, summers here are unbearable! The heat & humidity are on a next level, being outside is unbearable, the ocean water is hot the only thing left to do is going to the malls. I’m trying to spend as much time outdoors even though it’s challenging because I don’t want to spend the entire summer breathing AC air, day in, day out 🙁


Coral nail art ideas

  The summer is usually the time of the year where I wear more playful colors whether it’s my make-up, clothes or nails. However, lately I’ve been loving everything in a coral, peachy shade including my nail colors. I’ve created some DIY nail art looks as an inspiration for this summer. I did a similar post last year for New Years Eve, if you haven’t seen it yet check it out here!


Summer ready with these new sunscreen products

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.

Tumblr Thursday: Summer feelings

It’s officially Summer which means that it’s going to be SUPER hot in the UAE. It has its good and bad sides, the good side is that it’s beach season again and the downside of it is that it can get really hot which is unbearable here. I’m currently planning my summer vacation and I got a bit inspired on Tumblr by all the beachy and summer posts so I’m sharing some of my favorite photos here. Like always, you’ll find these images individually on my Tumblr page!

Look of the day: Festival inspired

I always look forward to festival season, especially Coachella (not that I’ll be attending) But, I love seeing the creative make-up looks and the fashionable bohemian looks. I had never really tried “festival make-up” on myself so I thought I’ll give it a try. I really enjoyed creating this look and I’m pretty happy with the end result too. Product details are listed below.

SS17 Beauty Trends

I love stepping into a new season because it means: new beauty launches + new beauty trends. Most of the make-up trends this spring I had already seen coming but there are still a few trends that are unique and I wasn’t expecting. What better way to stay up to date with the latest beauty (& fashion) trends other than watching runway shows? Each designer of course has their own style and creates their own trends but these are the most popular beauty trends you’ll see next season.

New trend alert: Body jewelry chains

It’s officially winter in Dubai which means, beach days are no longer the same. Gone are the days where I would spend literally every weekend on the beach working on my tan and soaking in the water. Winter does have its perks here in Dubai but I’ll definitely miss the warm beach days. In conclusion; I kinda miss summer. The body jewelry trend has been around for a while already but its a trend that I keep seeing more and more on my feed so I wanted to gather all the inspiration that I have and share it with you.
