🎉Shopaholic’s Versatile Blogger Award!🎉

Hello my lovely blogging friends! 

I know I know I have been totally ignoring the blog for the longest time but hear me out. Way too many things were going on at once and I am so bad at managing time that a lot of things took a back seat and unfortunately the blog was one of them.

Anyways with my studies hopefully under control, unexpected vacations over and a wonderful opportunity to make a comeback thanks to the lovely lady over at strictlylighthearted 💕. I will be more regular with my posts incase anyone was missing them (fingers crossed🤞🏼).

So here is today’s comeback post (do I sound like a flop movie star ⭐️ trying too hard 😋). The ✨Versatile Blogger Award!✨. Do check out strictlylighthearted’s blog esp her totally funny award post 🤣.

So as per the rules I have to tell you guys 7 things about myself, so here goes peeps. TMI time 😋

1- I still haven’t figured out what I want to do with myself I mean I have bopped from one interest  to another in hopes of finding a fit but nothing has worked out for me yet. So if anyone out there is wondering if they are the only looser out there who doesn’t have a clue what to do with their life maybe we should get together and start a club 😖.

2– I have recently become addicted 😍to the CW series Crazy ex girl friend and omg I can so relate to her idiotic and downright frustrating antics … anyone else a fan ?

3-I realized on my recent trip to Prague, that I adore 💕traveling to places that have legends and myths associated with them not just shit boring historical facts 👸🏼🤴

4– I often wonder if every one else’s life is as routine and uneventful as mine 🤔

5- I wish people would have the common courtesy of not talking just amongst themselves and leaving the third person feeling like a moron and having to resort to mindlessly playing with their phone. (Yes I’m referring to yours truly 🙄)

6– I wish society would drop the fake beauty standards already I mean aren’t we exhausted ladies? Fake eye lashes, extensions, implants ,fillers, having a perfectly baked, contoured face and the list goes on and on….

7-I can totally tell the difference between a genuine and fake compliment now 😳 A real compliment makes me ridiculously happy 😊 

So guys hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little bit better 😘

I’ll only be nominating three people even though there are tons of wonderful bloggers out there ✨




Ladies congrats on the nominations🎉 now just link back to my blog, list 7 things about yourself and nominate some fab bloggers of your choice ✨

All you bloggers out there check out these wonderful blogs and leave me some love in the comment section 😘😊💕

Until next time loves 💋

🎉Blogger Recognition Award! 🎉

✨Hello Everyone!

✨It’s been quiet a while since I have done an award blog post. So I was delighted when TheBeauty&FoodLab nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award🎉.

✨Rules: Let’s get these out of the way first.

✨-Thank the blogger who nominated you while providing a link to the blog site.

TheBeauty&FoodLab is the property of the lovely Shehnaz. It is really a visual treat with stunning photographs, mouth watering recipes and beauty reviews. I highly recommend you check it out and many thanks to her for this nomination 😘

✨-Discuss the reason for starting the blog and talk a little bit about it.

✨I started the blog for two reasons actually. One I was very bored, 😐I had just started my studies, we had just moved to the UAE and I didn’t know a soul and had no idea what to do with my time.

Two I had a habit of writing really long statuses on Facebook 😋. Usually about something interesting/ outrageous or hilarious. A lot of my friends enjoyed reading those so they would encourage me to start a blog. However since I’m a technical dummy I really didn’t want to get into the entire HTML , coding or *%# crap. However as it so happened my first semester ended up being a stress fest and it got me riled that I sat and wrote a 1000 words about my experience. At that very time I got an email from the university asking for volunteer bloggers for the uni student blog. So feeling excited I sent in my blog post only to hear …Nothing.

So I thought to myself oh well it was probably a crappy piece and forgot all about it. The semester ended and about that time I got the same email again requesting blog posts from student volunteers. So I made a few tweaks and resent my post. And would you believe it heard back from the head of student affairs within a few mins. She wrote that she had seen my article before but had got caught up and it had slipped her mind and seeing it again today reminded her. 

She gave me directions to set up an account on WordPress and my post went live the same day and that fellow bloggers was the official start to my blogging journey. 😇 Here is a link to the article incase you want to take a look. 

Read Me😘

I made a separate account for my personal blogging . I had a hunch the university would not be interested in reading about the latest eyeliner I was currently fancying 😜.

And well, you guys know the rest about the blog. It’s mostly product reviews, funny stories and my love for posing for the camera 😋.

✨-Give 2 advices to fellow bloggers/readers.

Be genuine, your blog should reflect your personality.

 Write like you would talk about something, don’t use overly complicated vocabulary, just be yourself. 

✨-Nominate 15 bloggers who you think deserve this accolade.

This part takes me forever to be honest to link the blogs 😫.

I’ll nominate 5 people honestly there are so many I would love to do but the linking thing drives me insane 😖.






✨-Inform all the nominees by commenting on their blog.

Yes your majesty I will be doing that just as soon as I post this 😋.

That’s it for me guys ! Hope you enjoyed this post 😘

🔆The Sunshine Blogger Award🔆


Hello People 💖

I’m so happy to be receiving the Sunshine Blogger Award ✨ courtesy of the lovely💞 Kanza from FadedRouge, who also happens to be a fellow UAE resident.

💞Let’s start with the rules and move on to the fun part❣

✨Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.

✨Answer the eleven questions sent by the person who nominated you.

✨Nominate eleven blogs to receive the award and write them eleven new questions.

✨List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or your blog.

✨Here are Kanza’s questions for me 😘

1. Name something that makes you happy?

✨You know it varies something I feel happy after I’ve bought something I’ve wanted for a really long time. Sometimes it’s after being in the company of good friends and sometimes it’s just spending time with my family.

2-Would you rather live in the city or countryside?

✨Im a city girl I’m used to the hustle bustle, the lights, sounds of the city. I would go stir crazy in the country 🍃.

3-What’s your ultimate inspiration song?

✨Currently in not listening to anything special it keeps changing actually. 

4- Name 1 item on your bucket list.

✨Be a famous somebody 😁

5-Do you prefer to write or type?

✨ Type. Back in college I used to be a huge note taker. I would fill notebooks, but I haven’t written in years now. So my handwriting has gotten pretty awful 👎🏻

6-Mountains or Sea?

✨Neither I prefer flat land. Sea makes me think of sharks or drowning and I’m scared of heights 😱so no high places please.

7-What is something you do to relieve stress?

✨I just don’t think about it. I have an imaginary box in my head that I store all the stressful, unhappy things in. 

8-What is your happy colour?

✨ I like blue I always have. 

9-If you visit a new place or country what is the first thing you would do?

✨ I want to find out where the outlet malls are 😁

10-What is one thing you cannot live without?

✨I believe I can live without anything if I set my mind to it. Dependency makes you weak. 

11- Who do you look up to?

✨My parents to bail me out of whatever.

💟Hope you guys enjoyed reading that!

🎗People who work hard to get success, don’t give up in the face of failure and who still remain down to earth and humble after being successful are the ones I look up to.

🎗Have you ever had a secret admirer?

🎗Yes! It was a lot of fun really, they would leave behind clues leading up to their identity and I had fun finding out who it was in the end 🔎.

🎗If you and a friend both wanted the same thing would you let the friend get it first?

🎗I suppose 🤔 I would pout and sigh endlessly after, so she would have to hand it over in the end though 😁.

🎗If you could have any celebrity hair whose would it be?

So here goes loves💖 A little bit about me 😘

💞I’m an October baby which makes me a temperamental libra.🌠 I love shopping, reading, blogging and watching reruns of Everybody loves Raymond and the Golden Girls on TBS😁

I’m a reserved person, most of the time, but once i get to know someone and we really click i talk non stop 😘. I love straight forward, genuine,fiercely loyal people who have a sense of humor because that is totally the way i am. I love fairy tales and old fashioned romance even though i know non of them exist 😭. I hate cooking, i have a cleaning OCD and i have a total love/hate relationship with my body 😄. I love the colors blue, black and white and i am still searching for the perfect pair of jeans that will give me a booty that just screams goddess😁

The blog to me is more than just writing about this and that its a way for me to express myself, to connect with others and share my ideas and learn from them.

So that’s it a paragraph’s worth of info that gives you a slight idea of who shopaholic really is 😚. Are we besties yet? 😉.
