✨Hola loves❣️✨Today on the blog I took the classic combination of black & white and styled it for a super casual day. I love this combination simply because you can never go wrong with it and it works for every occasion. For this look I paired a breezy, eyelet top with my black skinnies and check out theses adorable furry sandals 💕that complete the look❣️I personally like pairing fitted with something loose and flowy I feel like it is a more flattering look on almost anybody type. So here is today’s summer OOTD in black and white✨ Let me know how you guys would style this color combination 😘❣️Outfit Deets✨✨Top: Loft✨Jeans : Loft✨Shoes : Charles & Keith
🌞Hola Love bunnies🐰❣️
🌞Today’s post is all about my favorite the OOTD✨. It’s getting hotter🔥 here in Dubai which means outfits have to be loose and comfortable. Even though I love prints being petite means I have to pair them with solids to avoid looking like a walking wallpaper sample. 😋 In terms of wearing black in the 🌞summer I don’t mind it provided I pair it with something colored to breakup the darkness of the look. So here is today’s OOTD, luckily there was a lovely breeze about so it honestly didn’t feel like summer at all 😊
✨Top & Pants : Loft
✨Accessories: Tiffany , Fabula Jewels
🌞Hope you guys enjoyed this OOTD❣️ Until next time loves 💕❣️
Hola Love Bunnies 🐰❣️
It’s that time of the year again when the clouds open up for a fraction of a second here in Dubai and we get two drops worth of rain 😒☔️. Regardless, I love the cloudy weather that accompanies the ahem “rain” here. So much so that this is the time when I will plan beach trips, camp out on my patio and take leisurely walks out in the open and carelessly abandon 😱my usual shadow hopping avoiding the sun style of walking 😳. If you are a desi you will totally be able to relate to this ☺️.
So that is brings us to today’s OOTD which is totally inspired by the rain 🎉 or lack of 😒💧. So here we go peeps after a very long time indeed the shopaholic style spring shower OOTD 😘Outfit deets ✨
☔️Top : Loft ( I think the black goes perfectly with the grey skies 😉, then again when does black not work?)
☔️Jeans: Loft petites
☔️Bag: Tory Burch ( I finally got myself a quilted style I liked 😇)
☔️Shoes: Toms ( I actually hiked on a mountain in these so there 😌)
That’s it love I’ll keep it short💕 and sweet for now cause I want to enjoy the rest of this gorgeous cloudy day 🌥 while I can😇.
Hope you guys are having a fabulous day as well and Happy Holi ✨to all those celebrating 🎉❣️
Until next time loves 💋!
Hola Loves 💕!
💫It’s a new year and we are already nearing the end of January😱 time it seems is literally flying 🛫. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are working hard at your new year resolutions. I’m not so much a resolution person myself I find being sporadic tends to work better for me. All of my best laid plans have a tendency to go awry anyways 😒.
💫So back to the topic I’m totally not a facial kind of person I hate being touched and honestly I have yet to see a facial do miracles 🙄. However the “HydraFacial” had me intrigued. The idea of not having my face polished, scrubbed and shined like shoe leather 👞 (which is exactly how I describe typical facials😋) is what appealed to me. The “HydraFacial” uses a patented vacuum technology which creates a vortex effect that easily dislodges and removes impurities while simultaneously hydrating the skin with tailored serums and potent antioxidants. Add to that the fact that it’s favored by top Hollywood celebrities ✨i was totally interested in booking myself a session.
💫The TaoSpa at Jumeirah Mall were offering an amazing 50% off to try the HydraFacial for the month of January 🎉✨! Since my skin was looking unusually lack luster and tired and it was the new year I decided it was the perfect time to renew and refresh ✨❣️
💫Back to the facial !The HydraFacial is a five step process: Vortex-Exfoliation™, Vortex-Peel™, Vortex-Extraction™, Vortex-Boost™, and Vortex-Fusion®. It typically lasts an hour but they also have the express option which takes just 30 mins.
💫This part is done by hand and to be honest it was a tad bit reminiscent of the traditional facials I have had in the past 😱. Thankfully it lasted only a few mins and then we got started with the high tech stuff 😬. For each process the therapist used a different colored sterilized tip. The first step was the vortex cleansing and exfoliation.
💫Your therapist will customize the vacuum suction based on your skin type. My skin is very sensitive so the suction was adjusted accordingly. The wand head simultaneously deposits the cleanser and sucks out the gunk from your pores. 💫The process is not the least bit uncomfortable all you feel is the cooling sensation of the cleanser/ serums and a light suction from the wand. After each step the wand tip will be rinsed and changed but the process will be the same: application of product followed by suction. Before the final step my therapist applied protein mask around my eyes while she proceeded to apply the vitamin serum.
Yes I look peculiar I know 🤫. And here is me post the treatment tada✨
💫My skin looked fresh, felt squeaky clean and baby soft 💕😱! FYI I’m not wearing any makeup here 😬 aah my dream of being able to face the world bare faced was finally coming true 😍❣️.
💫To sum up I would highly recommend the HydraFacial ✨it is recommended to get multiple sessions to see the full benefits. Alas ☹️ owing to the exorbitant cost that might not be a possibility for me atleast for the time being . That being said I would definitely try the HydraFacial again if I happen to stumble across a bargain deal 😘.
That’s it for this blog post my loves 💕! Thanks for stopping by❣️
Hola Love Bunnies🐰💕
It’s product review time again here on the blog ✨. Today I’ll be reviewing a skincare item that is a must have for everyone regardless of your age or gender : Sunscreen or Sunblock ☀️.
☀️I’m sure you are all aware of the dangers of exposing you skin to the harmful ultra violet rays of the sun. Unprotected and prolonged exposure to the sun can cause a number of skin related problems including but not limited to :
☀️Therefore protecting your skin is imperative when being in the sun. For people of color like myself it is especially important as my skin tends to go into an overproduction of melanin if I have repeated unprotected exposure to the UV rays.
☀️That being said choosing the correct sun protection for the skin can be a bit daunting given the staggering array of products and brands offered in stores. For me personally a few things are very important when choosing a sunscreen .
1- ☀️It has to be oil free and streak free. There is nothing worse than heading out in the boiling weather with your face covered in a oil slick and worse white streaks 😳!
2-☀️It should provide coverage. Since I don’t wear foundation or concealer on a daily basis, a Sunblock that does double duty (protection + coverage) is a winner in my book.
3-☀️It should have a SPF factor of between 30-50. In case you didn’t know the higher the SPF the longer time in terms of protection you get which means fewer reapplications.
☀️The one brand that satisfied all my requirements ended up being:
☀️La Rochay Posay ☀️
☀️I found it easy to apply and it provided just the right amount of light coverage which helped blur out any discolorations on my face. I’ve attached an unretouched picture below 😱 (0️⃣ filters on this picture 😳 ack!). I’ve applied the product on one side of my face so you can see the extent of the coverage.
☀️In terms of applicability the product stayed put and didn’t melt off my face even after a few hours. Granted I was indoors for the most part. 😏 So I cannot at this point comment on its performance outdoors.
☀️All in all this is one sunscreen I actually don’t mind using everyday 😍. Considering the fact that normally I hate applying sunscreen due to its greasy feel and the peculiar, artificial white sheen most of them leave behind 😳.
☀️Have you guys tried this brand ? How did you like it? Do let me know in the comments and what is your preferred brand of sun screen? Share with me here!😘
Until next time loves 💋💕!

Hola Love Bunnies🐰!
🍃Hope you are all doing awesome! I have been fairly absent from blogging lately 😖, but I have been so bogged down with studies I simply couldn’t find the energy to pen down anything for the blog 😩.
🍃Anyways I’ll try to be more regular starting today and you guys can expect to see a new post every week 😬. So today’s post is a product review featuring a local Dubai brand : Shirley Conlon Body Butter.
🍃I can across this brand when I was searching on Instagram for locally made organic skincare products. I had run out of my diy body cream and the ingredients to make any more batches😓. So while the new ones were on the way I needed something to keep my skin moisturized💦.
🍃The hard water 💧and dry ☀️weather makes for really itchy and dry skin here in the UAE. So long story short I placed an order via the website and a week later my product was delivered. I paid 140 aed which is around $38. Steep 💸 I know 😓 but the product sounded promising so I figured maybe it would be worth it …. Not!
🍃First off the Body Butter was more like body oil 💦it was totally melted and had leaked all over the plastic container it came in as well the packaging😡. Which was annoying but I figured ok it’s a natural product they don’t use chemicals or binders so no big deal I’ll keep it in the fridge to harden up. Now please note it was listed on the website as a whipped cream consistency.
🍃However once I took it out of the fridge it had solidified into a solid block 😳. So I figured never mind I’ll keep it out at room temperature which in my house is around 24 degrees 🌡celcius and it will soften up. Guess what? It turned back into a melted mess again! 😫 I was like what on earth?! I paid💰 that much for a tub of oil?!
🍃Part of me wanted to chuck it out because I was totally frustrated by that point. I mean if I wanted a body oil I would have just gotten one that was just that: an oil! 😖. I didn’t want to call them and complain because they had taken over a week to ship out the damned thing with no communication in between whatsoever, so I wasn’t expecting any amazing customer service from them anytime soon.
🍃So here’s what I did instead I had about half a jar of my diy cream left so I melted my cream and mixed it with the tub of Shirley Conlon Body Butter/Oil 😒 and cooled the lot together in the freezer for a few mins and then whipped it with my handy little mixer into voila : a cream!😍 And it worked ! I had a jar of creamy body butter at last! 🎉
🍃Whew! I was so thrilled ! I was honestly pissed into speechlessness when I saw what I had received from the company. However a little ingenuity on my part saved the day, my cash and the product😇.
🍃Here is the finished version of the body cream or butter I chucked the offending jar of Shirley Conlon out and reused my old diy cream jar 😍.
🍃Have you guys ever bought any products that were total disasters? Let me know about them in the comments section 😘.
🍃Until next time loves 💕💋!
