As a child I wasn’t a big fan of the color pink. I always felt it was too girlie (as if I wasn’t a girl haha)! But with time I started to fall in love with the color and felt that it represented so many meaningful values like: feminism, love, hope, sweetness.. and many other things!
For today’s look, I chose to wear different shades of pink and I accessorized it with a simple touch of red! So I can call this outfit: Shades of love.
I immediately fell in love with this one shoulder top, and what better way to style this kind of top than adding some long earrings?!
A simple pair of high waist pants with pumps and the outfit is complete and to be honest it ended up being one of my favorite looks so far from this year.
What is your favorite color? And what do you think of the trend combining a whole outfit from the same color (maybe different shades)?

I always cared about choosing the right slippers and mules, because they have to be comfy! Like extra comfy! Then what’s the point of wearing flats and not heels?! It’s kinda hard to find slippers that are pretty and comfy at the same time. But I found this French brand “Line Loup” that designs the most comfortable and chic interior slippers and mules! When I checked their website, I didn’t know which ones to choose but I ended up choosing the Cavaliere Bordeaux mules. I fell in love with the color and the velvet fabric.
The moment I tried them on, I didn’t want to take them off! I can honestly wear these mules every day! They are so pretty, and they would go with any outfit! They are beyond comfortable, and plus let’s not forget mules are so trendy now!
100% handmade slippers and mules made in Italy, and you can also customize your own pair just the way you want. Check out their website HERE and let me know which one is your favorite!
Hello my loves!
It’s been a long time since my last blog post! I missed you all and I missed sharing my diaries with you. I can’t believe we are in March already, I feel like I just got married yesterday! I started 2018 with lots of love and laughs. I got married to the person I can finally call my best friend and the love of my life. As I started a new life, it came with it new responsibilities and priorities and it took me some time to organize everything. And that’s why I’ve been a way for a while but now I’m back! Today, I’m so happy to share with you some of the highlights of my special day, and I hope you like it!
For the wedding dress, it took me a while till I found and designed the “IT dress”. I visited many wedding stores in the UAE, and everything I found was either too simple, or too extra for me or above my budget. And you know you can’t just order your wedding dress online! You have to try it; what if it needs alteration? What if the quality is not like what you expected?! Do you get me? After a lot of searching, finally a good friend of mine introduced me to the talented designer Marmar Halim; who from the first time we met, had the sketch of my wedding dress done! And I can’t express how happy I was with the results, the details and the quality of the dress.
For the hair and makeup, I decided to keep it simple. Just how I usually look, but of course with some extra touches!
If you are getting married soon, my only advice to you is to enjoy every moment, and just have fun preparing your wedding! Because we ladies all have been waiting for our special day, so we might as well make it memorable and enjoyable.

This weekend will forever be one of the most memorable highlights I’ve ever had and the reason being is that I got to celebrate my last day of being single with my favorite ladies at an amazing isolated getaway at the desert Palm Resort and Hotel in Dubai.
We stayed at the pool residence two bedroom villa and threw a beautiful retro themed bridal shower outdoors by our private pool. Their food was absolutely delicious, the villa was immensely spacious and their staff were even more accommodating than usual.
Most of you know that I don’t really like going over board when it comes to outfits and dressing up for occasions so I decided to go with a simple outfit wearing a pair of black leggings and an oversized white shirt with a retro hairdo and a red rose.. because it’s a special day
We started the day off with fun bachelorette games, having so much food OFCOURSE, delicious cake, popped bubbly, and most importantly ended it by dancing the night away!
I have to say my girls were absolutely amazing, they really made my day so memorable and I can’t thank them enough for such a fun day filled with love, laughter, and dancing! I couldn’t have asked for more
On that note, it’s time to get back to my wedding preps so I’ll see you all after the big day!
Sometimes all we need is a small staycation even inside our own city! If we don’t have the chance to travel when we feel like we need a vacation, then we don’t have to! We might as well find another way to have fun and do something new. And that’s what I did last weekend! I decided to spend it at one of the stunning villas at The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal hotel where the villa felt like home; yet the luxurious hotel and its service, and the gorgeous view of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque made me feel that I’m in another place! There is something about this hotel that is so magical.
The villa had a beautiful terrace with a swimming pool, where my friends and I had a small BBQ. Yes a BBQ! The hotel provides a BBQ service for you and your guests! And the food was absolutely AH-MAH-ZING!
A fun chilled weekend with my family and friends, nothing crazy, and that’s what I exactly needed after a long busy week.
How did you spend yours?

I’ve shared recently on my Instagram stories about the red trend and how it became the “IT” color for this season! Red on red, red on white, red on pink! And they all look good together, again as I mentioned on the previous blog post that I’m loving how we don’t have limits in combining colors together or in expressing and creating our own style.
So here I am at Dubai Fashion Forward styling my “IT” oversized blazer with a floral red dress, and just to add a touch to this outfit I added my new “favorite” white boots that I’m telling you from now; you will be seeing me wearing them over and over again this season! I know I know, the weather here in the UAE is not a coat or boots weather, but come on! What is winter without coats and boots? And a cup of hot chocolate 🙂 yup I think I watch a lot of Christmas movies!
Are you a fan of the red trend too? If not, what is your “IT” color for this season?

I usually love to mix my outfits: chic and casual, sporty with a touch of class! It’s always nice to be stylish while being comfortable.
I love that lately we started seeing more people wearing sneakers with suits, dresses, and skirts! I’m not saying it just started happening, but in the past couple of years people have become more open to the idea of mix and match.
I’m going to talk about myself and say that I used to think that sneakers and kicks are made only for sporty and very casual looks. And that’s why I love fashion and how creative people and streetstyle looks could be. There are no rules in fashion! There are actually zero rules, because each one of us has their own style, own touch and own personality that reflects on their style!
Don’t listen to anyone who says that only a number of colors could be paired together and look right, or that skirts/dresses only go along with heels, or you can’t mix gold and silver, or you can’t mix different prints together! No! The beauty of it is that we now see people wearing completely different colors together and combine them in a very beautiful way, mixing two or more prints together and making them look just amazing! Please don’t limit yourself to one style, and never be afraid to try new things! Fashion is an art, and you should never limit an artist from creating and inspiring others
