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!
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

I know it’s been awhile since my last blog post but I’ve been so busy with planning my wedding and trying to find “the perfect” wedding dress. I honestly didn’t think it was going to be this hard choosing a specific design with so many amazing dress ideas around and please note that the wedding is only three months away with so much left to plan and I find myself forced to put the Bridezella mode ON to actually get things done Yeah I’m not stressed at all.. haha But I have to say that I’m truly enjoying every second of it and I really do miss you all and I miss sharing my diaries with you!
Now back to the blog post, finally sharing with you this beautiful and comfy set that I’m totally in love with, and can’t get myself to stop wearing.
I chose to style it with my favorite louboutin heels that I almost wear with everything! Seriously though, to me those nude pumps are the easiest to pair with anything. And let’s face it nude colors will always be my favorite
Side note, I just read the top half of my blog post and realized that I’ve officially become a bridezella complainer and didn’t think I’d ever be one but on the bright side I haven’t yet (and let’s just hope it stays that way) started annoying people, or at least they haven’t yet complained about me!
Until next time..

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..
