Wedding day

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.

From Miss to Mrs

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!

Love always..



The villa


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?

Mini staycation


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.




Can’t wait to get me some more much needed getaways like this..

Till next time..

Simply.. DIOR


Every person has a moment they go through in life that fills them with pride and truly proves that hard work does indeed pay off one way or another. This was mine..




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.
In collaboration with we where able to produce moments of magic.




The concept behind this shoot is portraying two different personalities and styles with one similarity.. their love for Dior!


I hope you enjoy those images as much as I did. Let me know your thoughts below


Till next time..



My Haven


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!



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.


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



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


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.



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!


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!




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.


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!
