Mini staycation

FullSizeRender

Last weekend was a much needed staycation at the Four Seasons resort at jumeirah and to be honest I didn’t want to leave!
I’m going to start this post by explaining why I decided to go on my getaway and fell in love with this hotel. I was supposed to travel on a short vacay but unfortunately had some complications with some of my plans and decided to stay instead. I had to ofcourse compensate and immediately thought of a small vacation somewhere around the U.A.E.

I wanted to stay at a nice resort with a great beach view (you all should know by now my everlasting love for the beach) and the four seasons jumeirah was exactly what I was looking for! A huge luxury hotel with amazing service, stunning beach, and don’t get me started on their spa facilities!!

I couldn’t get myself to stop photo-shooting around the hotel! I had the perfect greenery layouts, the stunning beach views, the Arabic vintage details, and of course the gorgeous never ending pathways.

Gingham

Facetune_2

Lately, the gingham trend is on everyone’s current obsession list and why not?!
I remember when the only gingham we wore were black and white and that’s it. But now we have all the colors rocking the gingham style..

Facetune_6

Facetune_5

I see gingham dresses, pants, scarves and skirts, and all I want is to try them in different styles from vintage to retro. So you can imagine how easy it was for me to fall in love with this skirt, and those ruffles details that had me feeling like I’m strutting the Spanish streets.

Facetune_4

Facetune_1

I had a couple of ideas on how to style my skirt, but for this I decided to go with a simple white tee and my see through glass heels for a casual sunny day.

The cold shoulder blazer

Dana_FivePalm-4

I am a big fan of blazers, not necessarily for work but I actually love styling them on different looks! I found this classy suit at Michael Kors, a cold shoulder blazer with a cropped straight leg pants.
Dana_FivePalm-10
The moment I tried them on, I was officially obsessed! They give off the “please.. you can’t walk with me” vibe but in a nice way (like there’s ever a nice way of saying that hahaha) but you know what I mean!

Dana_FivePalm-1

Dana_FivePalm-2

And to finish it off with a chic touch, I added a leather bag and my new Christian Dior babies!

Dana_FivePalm-5

Those shoes have been on my shopping list since I saw them on the runway show! I didn’t know which color to choose, but with me being a huge fan of nude colors, it was so obvious.. because they really do work with LITERALLY everything!

First thing you see looking at those photos is that bamboo clutch/bag!
Something I always go by with my outfits is that most of the time I have an item I absolutely love, I tend to setup an entire outfit according to it!
A very basic pairing of a navy blue tank top along with a beige high waist pants.

The sandals as well are another standout in this outfit, I chose to go with these slick see through heels because well why not?!
All the other things came into place when I found this gorgeous massive door that blended in!

Summer List

IMG_0954

As soon as summer kicked off I couldn’t wait to put on my dresses and colorful outfits I had stacked up in my wardrobe weeks before June. And here’s yet another summer ensemble that I am obsessed with for different reasons.

IMG_0936

IMG_0940

These types of dresses are just perfect for the heat, they’re also very trendy (with the off shoulder), and they’re vibrant!

IMG_0938

IMG_0946

Believe it or not, I recently discovered that I actually don’t own clothing items in red and green (thanks to my mom pointing it out to me). So next item on my MOST WANTED clothes list is something green!

IMG_0945

IMG_0950

As for the remainder of the summer, I can’t wait to share more tips on how to beat the heat while being chic at the same time.

What’s on your shopping list this summer?

After discovering this chic French boutique La Fee Maraboutee in Dubai I couldn’t help but find myself get lost in translation.
The linen, the styles, the colors.. oh mon dieu!
Snapseed_3

 

Snapseed_5

I picked out their beautiful rose pink suit for a summer ensemble. The thing about suits like this is they make it so easy for you to pair things with it. Accessories for the evening, a blouse maybe for a meeting or two, and a tank top in my case for a warm sunny Monday running around from my office to an outdoor meeting.

Paired along with a nude pair of shoes, in this case I wanted to keep it all French with my louboutins haha 🙈any excuse as always!

Summertime

img_0409

The summer of beaches, sunnies, hats , dresses, and sandals!

It is really way too hot to wear anything else, but we always find a way around it.. not this time though, this one is specifically for a sunny brunch beach kinda day.
I’ve always been in love with accessories and have always felt like they tend to give an edge to an outfit. I mean surely anyone could end up wearing the same thing but the accessories on it makes it different, unique, and says a lot about your mood I believe.

The Jewel Corner

5

Diamonds and gold represent so many things to so many different people, but more specifically (diamonds are a girl’s best friend) us females do tend to have a special place in our hearts for diamond beauties that are rare and eyecatching. It Was Kate Hudson who best described how we all truly felt about diamonds.

8

14
“Frost yourselves…” she said, and I did with different shapes, sizes, and as many as I could; all at once. Layering and stacking up bracelets, necklaces and earrings. It’s not every day, after all, that you get to explore with diamonds and pure gold!

13

4

The ring shapes and the bracelet overlays. The diamond studs and the crescent earrings. All within your own budget limitations! Which brings me to how I discovered Jewel Corner. The Jewel Corner was recommended to me by a couple of people I know, I looked it up and read great reviews, and not just about the quality of their pieces but also about their affordable prices (which is very rare to find nowadays).

11

Making the decision of choosing Jewel Corner to display some of my favorite diamonds and jewelry items was a choice to allow you, my readers, in having a chance to winning one of these beauties for yourselves on my next giveaway! Stay tuned on Instagram.

Ruffles and a denim jacket

IMG_9127

Any big fan of sex and the city would agree that SJP totally changed our lives with ruffles! And me being obsessed with that show made me always want to walk down the streets looking as fabulous and as cool as Carrie Bradshaw!

IMG_9129

IMG_9130

IMG_9125

I’ll be walking around, strutting in sandals, you’ll find ruffles in layers, and a vintage touch of just a simple jeans jacket. The intentions were to prove yet again that it’s the simplest of outfits and the classic 80s reinvention better yet rebirth touch of mixing the old with the new that will always be a major win.

IMG_9124

IMG_9131

I like to mix and match so even though those denim jackets would probably be the last thing you’d necessarily think of this summer, wipe that dust off of them because there’s always use for something old..

The season is summer and that means vibrant colors, tanned skin, and beach waves!Nothing beats a good flashback to the 70s with a high waist wide leg boho chic mustard pants paired with an off shoulder cropped ruffle wrinkled pink top and open toe sandals.. Ahh going through the process of putting this outfit together gets me just as excited as I was doing it!

Head to toe dressed in Dior for the pre fall collection reveal 2017. Everything on me; the sunnies, the choker, the accessories, the dress, and the shoes were DIOR! And lord only knows how good it felt.

Candy Cane

IMG_6643

It’s almost summer and I decided to show off my favorite trends of the year in a very quick shoot. Long sleeves, bow ties, and stripes.. I felt so fresh with this pairing, I went with a subtle white knee length skirt for my candy cane shirt.

IMG_6670

IMG_6688

It is such a spring/summer outfit yet I have to be one to admit it does remind of Christmas and you must have figured out by now how much I love Christmas!

IMG_6649

IMG_6640

I always want my outfits to represent the playful side of me, I always say it’s an art and representation of what a person is. And with outfits, i tend to play around with different styles because I can always show how i feel and yes most of the time they actually uplift my mood. Maybe it’s just as simple as putting on a shirt and letting it do the magic.

IMG_6665

So without further ado, i leave you with my candy cane..

Laced up

IMG_6703

Yet another trend that I’ve instantly fallen in love with are waist belts.
This Citlali lace-up top to be specific was something that stood out to me as soon as I saw it! It’s got like a loose lace up corset belt tied around the waist line of the top transforming it from just a plain shirt to a wild and playful item that catches everyone’s attention.
IMG_6701

 

IMG_6646

Because red is already a pop of color I paired it with a simple brown trousers and my nude Louboutin’s. Making the outfit look as simple as I could possibly make it by mixing and matching nude palettes around the red.

IMG_6692

IMG_6667

So here’s a tip from me to you.. When you have an item that stands out and want to revolve the entire concept around it, tone it down with your pairings. For me I tend to lean on the Nude Color Palettes, always so simple and classy!

Vintage

Fresh out of the 80s, feeling that denim on denim look, it’s a flashback.. no wait! It just never gets old!
I love anything and everything vintage. It’s not just a word to me, vintage is a style, an artistic vision, a creative mind, and a look that’s always on my checklist!

I paired my high waist jeans with a cropped yellow sweater and a denim printed jacket.
Remember the good old days when we put on our hoop earrings and walked around feeling fly?! Well, to me those days never went out of date!
As colorful as this might seem to you, walking around in it made me feel so fresh.

Layering

1

I’m one who is fascinated by things that stand out, and who isn’t really?!
At this point we go through our wardrobe and find so many items and pieces that we’ve only worn once or twice and no longer know what to do with them.

2

5

Here I decided to show how you could always make use of your wardrobe. The skirt is something I recently purchased on my last shopping spree and am definitely sure that I will be putting it through everything because I’m obsessed with it! Paired it with this bell sleeve blouse (on trend) and for a unique touch added this cropped top that I loved so much. This way my added bonus is the cropped top, wore it before but still found a way to make use of it again without even it looking like the same top anymore. The plus side is it made the top look unique and one of a kind, lets face it the chances of you running into someone in public wearing the same top are very low!

Finally, adding a touch of sass as per the usual and that is.. RED!

My Haven

img_4683

Here’s how it began.. The value of happiness can not be estimated, It can not be described, it can only be felt by you!
When in Maldives, staying in such hotel know from experience that there is such a thing as guaranteed happiness.
The island is like a safe haven where you get to experience blessings and beautiful scenes in their finest of forms. You sit there and have your breath taken away almost instantly!

img_4696

img_4709

I was barefooted the entire time dressing up in dresses that made me feel like I belonged. Dresses that represented me and my haven. From different local designers that I sincerely love, as inspiring as each could be in their own way. Starting off with Amira Haroon who quickly became a close friend of mine, designing all of her pieces so adequately and in such details you can’t help but fall in love.

img_4697

img_4702
As for Lilli Jahilo her delicate touch in designs are sublime.

img_4686

 

This entire trip won’t be the only one I hope, and it taught me to appreciate the things I do in life to get to where I am today. It’s always important to believe that hard work pays off.

A piece of heaven on earth

4

I can now say that I’ve finally had the chance to visit and stand in the midst of heaven on earth.
The best experience I’ve had so far and I would do it all over again with a heartbeat.
The way I decided to explain this to you is with explicit details so that you’d be able to feel like you’ve seen, done, and felt the way I’ve experienced this.
3

 

2

Starting off with the hotel, I stayed at the St. Regis Maldives after rave reviews from across the planet! I booked for four nights to get a long overdue break from work, life, and reality. The room, oh my, do they’re like cabins in the midst of the beautiful Maldives seas. They have this cute bike if you enjoy a ride and they offer a cart which is also just a phone call away to pick you up and take you around!

1

The view from my bed is astonishing I honestly have never seen anything like it before. Walking around from the pool front in the cabin you can choose to just swim with the fish and the beautiful sea creatures. My favorite area for snorkeling and diving! Ahh what a scene! Another favorite of mine was a feature in the room which basically controlled most amenities (curtains, tv, YouTube, music, lights, etc..) on an iPad.. so a literal click of button and voila!

7

6

 

Moving on, the restaurants. From jungle themed Arabian restaurants to Asian. My favorite start was the breakfast at Alba but saying that doesn’t do the rest justice. Every restaurant I tried was truly delicious and I’m not just saying that! I’m very picky with food and there’s nothing I did not enjoy! There are some activities you could do during your stay like yoga to keep your self feeling fresh.
Oh wow, writing this I found myself suddenly getting carried away.
5

 

One last thing, I promise.. because I can’t end this without mentioning the best part of it all. THE SPA! Ah heaven heaven heaven! There’s nothing I’ve experienced in my life that felt better than this.

Yes, I can now say that I’ve waken up in heaven!

Fur Sleeves

1

I’ve never really thought I’d ever end up wearing something so gutsy before. And ever since I started my blog I learned a number of things, one of those things is to always step out of my comfort zone and take risks! With this in mind and the weather in the UAE, winter here doesn’t necessarily help picking out such outfits but I still didn’t care.

I was going to wear this fur (don’t worry not real fur though) sleeves jacket no matter what! It’s made by this amazingly talented local designer branded by OTT! Im always on the lookout for such genius minds and have nothing but pride in supporting it.

Denim lovin

Here’s what this is.. I am the girl who owns an entire closet of pure DENIM, a girl who has denim as her go-to outfit, and a girl who could never get sick of the denim on denim look! Infact, I am currently on the search for a pair of mom jeans just like the ones I’m wearing here only darker for a look I have in mind.. Involving the basic Gucci Tee and sneakers or a pair of heels to chic it up a bit.

Back to this outfit, I’ve recently discovered this awesome online boutique that I’ve become quickly obsessed with and as soon as I saw this beautiful pearls and denim cropped shirt I couldn’t help but think of adding more and more pearls to it!

Now seeing as to how I can’t really afford diamonds, I’m going to pretend that for the time-being pearls are a girls best friend. So subtle and believable! And finally, completing my look with my usual touch.. RED!

Trends nowadays take us back to that wonderful 70’s & 90’s era. The vintage photo-ups, the belts and the sunnies, and most importantly the vibrant colors. We always take risks in life and so should we when pairing an outfit! Step outside your comfort zone and dare to wear the irrational; because only we could rationalize any of our decisions in our own unique ways..

3

2

The trend-setter generation that’s what I call us! I promised I’d write more about belts last post and what better way to write than with a demonstration?! I remember at some point of my younger life when my mom forced me to wear belts to hold my pants up so I wouldn’t make a fool out of myself walking around in baggy pants. Now though, belts is more of an accessory than a necessity, but an accessory that has the power to change the dynamic of the entire look!

6

4

Take this outfit for example, an over-sized sweater on an off-white pleated skirt. Very basic and well.. boring. Adding this red belt twisting it up to a knot adds life to the outfit and somehow changes the entire dynamic of the look!

1

So let us all enjoy recreating looks while adding fascinating touches here and there that could one day make people look back and relive our glory days.

People always recommend going for the lighter colors for summer looks, and I am almost always one to disagree!
I could wear an all white outfit every season because well.. white outfits are everything to me.. more or less an obsession! So calming and relaxing.

As much a I want to avoid pinpointing every small detail about this outfit, I simply can’t! This suit was paired with such adequate detail and constructed to perfect a suit out of different items that could fool even myself into thinking it wasn’t just made for this! So suit up, I’m about to start.. Paired with different shades of white starting with a white blazer, creamy pants, and a pearly fringed belt! Leaving me with my final touch of sass by adding a colorful statement to this outfit, my favorite floral pumps.

Merry Christmas

Something I’ve dreamt of seeing my entire life, it would never cross many of your imagination.. and that is experiencing snow!
Yes, Traveling around the world does not accompany the luxury of seeing snow for me. A true dream come true. It took me back to my childhood making me feel like it’s Christmas finally! Oh and what a wonderful feeling it was

Healthy Hair

2
Over the years, I’ve tried different hair products to sustain healthy hair. With
me being me, trying out different hairstyles and coloring it every now and then
is a must and could eventually cause lots of damage to the hair; like making it
weak and thinning out the roots.
3
I have to be honest, as soon as I heard about CYNOS products I was quick to
think that it was impossible to have a product with 0% sulfate, silicone, and
Parabean that could actually improve the strength of my hair.. But, I was
wrong! Trying out the CYNOS Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner for
almost 2 weeks now with every hair wash was beneficial because it didn’t feel
like I was using hundreds of chemicals to get rid of the unnecessary chemicals
on my head.
1
5
What I did was, I used the CYNOS hair mask after drying out my hair with a
towel, and applied the hair mask on for 15 minutes then washed it. I did this
process three times already and definitely feel like it revitalized the roots of my
hair with the natural oils in the product protecting and reviving the strength of
my hair.
4
6
I truly believe that this product is beneficial after trying it out for a couple of
weeks and I highly recommend it.
Till next time..

Strut in style

Oh when it comes to street style shoots this will be a favorite of mine!
It started off with a couple of snaps by the beautiful stairs and as I walked away to hydrate this was actually taken! It wasn’t planned and yes it turned out to be my favorite!
 4 5
Strutting around in my beautiful shoes soaking up the sun in a vintage floral culottes and a simple grey top is all I needed. I know, I always try to make it sound so easy; it truly isn’t haha! The secret is and I love how I could subtly quote drake here “started from the bottom”. To me it’s almost ALWAYS the shoes I start with when choosing the ultimate outfit pairing.
 1
 2
And I think that’s why some of the times I make life so difficult.. not in this case though, as soon as I saw those shoes, the pants was just a must. Got it from a vintage store during my last trip to Italy and the floral print got me going crazy! Hence, the confidence I had walking around in the pair. Tied hair back for a simple look, merely to take nothing away from the outfit and voila!

Who would’ve thought that I’d get to snow a week after this sunny day.. oh wait, right ME ❤❤

Winter habits

fullsizerender-3

It takes courage to walk around in bright colors, in colors that stand out. It is winter season and breaking the all around habit of going for the cozy formal winter clothes, it doesn’t always have to be dark! We think winter our mind automatically goes to dark and gloomy oversized clothing.

6

7

Breaking the rule as per the usual; with an option of adding a long coat for my viewers in the south, north, west, and east (because apparently it’s winter around the world except here), an off-shoulder courageous pink winter outfit along with my nude loubs and a brown bag.

Turkey Season

Finding color themes to go with winter and of course the turkey and mashed holidays..  thanksgiving!

So I recently discovered Reebonz online which made life much easier for me when I shopped for some of my favorite brands with a click of a button. Which brings me to this next point of discussion, the Chloe bag..

img_4598

My favorite item for this season is this velvet burgundy Chloe beauty! Ahh I truly based the entire outfit on the bag as soon I got my hands on it! Paired with a wide cuff knit top along with brown slim fit trousers.

You always have the easy choice of putting on any pair of nude shoes for an outfit like this just merely to stick with the color theme. I mean at this point I’m sure you all have noticed that my preference has always been the nudes!

Wishing you all a thanksgiving filled with turkeys, gravy, and fatty desserts 🤗❤

Home away from home

A weekend away from home..

img_4449

Featuring Kempinski hotel mall of the emirates and my weekend getaway staying at their recently launched Aspen Ski Chalets.

First off, being a resident in the UAE the chances of seeing actual snow is slim to none. So, having to wake up to the view of the snowy slopes of Ski Dubai by the fire place felt absolutely sublime! The spacious bedrooms, the walls, the kitchen, ahh that marble bathroom was literally everything!

The phrase “home away from home” works perfectly with this.. Onto my outfits for this weekend’s getaway, I wore my favorite Asos jeans paired with a sassy cropped top.

Moving on to a light blue ruffle dress to go with the Spanish paella I had for dinner hahaha.. cheeky I know, but I had to go for it!

Milan Fashion Week, Spring Summer 2017

After spending so much time in preparation and anticipation for my first ever abroad fashion week, sharing this milestone with my best friend who I had the pleasure of styling as well, I am so excited to share my looks throughout this fabulous week!

Milan Fashion Week, Spring Summer 2017

I’ve taken so much time prepping myself for the streets of Milan and on my first ever Milan Fashion Week show I decided to go with the trendiest of items this year and strut my way through the first show in my casual denim on denim pick of the day.

Fadeaway

IMG_2454

It begins with what they call a “fadeaway”
Stripes and a beautiful pastel blue top fading into one another!
The work done on this piece is absolutely stunning.. A vision of art and that is something I adore about fashion. It’s not always outfits and clothes, it’s creativity and artistic ability!

I am generally inspired by little things.. Things that don’t necessarily stand out but do have a creative aspect about them.
I really didn’t need to do much with this outfit.. Accessories none! I wanted to wear a pair of nude shoes but went with brown for a small change in the pastels unit. Straight hair, simple make up.. I practically stood there for twenty minutes snapped photos in different plain backgrounds and they all worked! When inspirations turn passions into reality..

If that’s not art then I don’t know what is!

Ubud

 

Ubud..  The magic that is best described as heaven on earth. We walk around the world and visit places, step foot onto our journey in exploring every little small place; then comes Ubud.

Meditating and relaxing in the hippie side of town . Walking around their beautiful roads and finding people wear the off shoulders, the shorts, the tanks and the flowy beach dresses. Continue reading

Sunshine

With inspirations to enhance your creativity, in a sky filled with stars you find your self shine the brightest.
Yellow.. What else then? On denim but there are always ways for you to be different, no unique! We walk for miles and miles yet when we look around; we find ourselves standing around the same spot.

The one difference is that with every step you stand a little bit taller.. That, is my definition of confidence. You could walk a million miles, go through a thousand sea, see the darkness and the light and still find yourself standing around the same spot but if we choose to take every step as a learning curve then all of a sudden your energy is lifted and a bit taller (wiser) you are.

Let your energy redirect the sun ray towards your soul and shine through..
Stand Taller!
