🎉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 ✨

🌚Super Short OOTD 🌚

🌚Hello Everyone ✨

🌚Long time no see! I have been totally mute for the last couple of days so just incase you were wondering if I had been abducted by aliens 👽(I should be so lucky 😒).

🌚Nope I’m still here where I have always been … if that sounds pathetic it’s because it actually is..😒 I have been stuck in a rut forever it seems and lately it’s starting to bug me more than ever. I read recently a post by someone who announced that they had finally found their true passion in life ( career wise people💵) and that they were able to ditch their 9-5 and go live their dream. While I was genuinely happy for them it made me wonder what exactly was my goal/passion in life and when the f*** was I going to be able to do it instead of wandering about aimlessly wasting precious time⏰.

🌚I was asked by a friend of mine back in grade school what my special talent was and I remember looking at her blankly and eventually conceding that it was nothing.😔 We have always been told that every person has some unique talent but even after years of searching I have drawn a blank.😶

🌚Anyways at times thoughts like these get me severely( I’m not going to say depressed) upset☹️. When that happens I shut myself away from everyone, I swear if there was a hibernation 🐻contest amongst humans I would take first prize 🏆.  

🌚Luckily for me I got a call from FedEx this morning informing I had a parcel delivery from good old USA 😍and that flipped my mood switch instantly. I swear shopping is the best therapy out there 💞.

🌚So here is today’s very short OOTD, mostly because I had forgotten to charge my camera and it died after two shots 😡.

Enjoy guys 😘🌚You can tell I’m not back to being my usual overly cheerful self still 😉

💋Shopaholic’s Closet Remix OOTD💋

✨I love 💞shopping for new clothes I swear if I could wear a new outfit every single day I would be the happiest chicka alive 😍.

✨However due to my limited budget, that is one fantasy I’ll have to put on hold for now 😡. Which is why I have learnt to shop smarter 🤓, buying pieces which can be remixed and reworn is not only budget friendly it also extends your wardrobe choices.

✨So today’s OOTD is all about repeating some old favorites and getting more bang for my wardrobe buck 💵.✨Some of you might remember this dress from a previous OOTD. When I came across it again today I decided to style it a bit differently so it didn’t appear so beachy 💧this time around .

✨The denim jacket is one of my favorite pieces which I got on clearance🎉 and it works equally well with jeans, chinos or skirts. 

✨The sandals are again an old favorite that I pulled out since I had a lot of walking to do today, they are 100% leather and super comfy.

✨The bag 💞pulls the entire look together for me, it adds sophistication to an otherwise casual look. I love this color for fall🍂 and the fact that it’s a crossbody is always a winner for me.

Dress : Aeropostle 

Jacket : Banana Republic Petites

Sandals : Toms

Bag: Tory Burch

Glasses : Tom Ford.

Let me know how you guys remix stuff from your wardrobe 😘

✂️Shopaholic Gets a Haircut✂️

✨I’m someone who has always been very attached to her hair. For as long as I can remember my hair has been down my back to my hips. My mom would cut my hair at home, spreading newspapers down and cutting it straight across never more than an inch. 

✨She was the one who oiled it regularly, braided it and never allowed me to open my hair except for special occasions.

✨It’s no wonder the first time I went to the hairdresser myself I was almost in tears when I saw my hair piling on the floor as the hairdresser snipped away with vigor despite my repeated just admonishing of “no more than an inch please”.

✨Even today, dozens of haircuts later, when I hear the rrrr of the scissors as they weave in and out of my hair I can feel panick setting in. 

✨However over the years it has become harder and harder to maintain the length of my hair. Since I am an avid fan of highlights I find my hair texture has changed dramatically. It is prone to being dry and frizzy particularly at the ends and no matter how much I condition or treat it eventually I find myself cutting it to maintain the health of my hair.

✨Today was one of those days when fed up with the dried, frizzy mess I decided to head on to the hairdresser. 

✨My go to hairstyle for the last few years had been side bangs with long layers. I am totally low maintaince when it comes to my hair I don’t even own a hairdryer. Which I is why I opt for this particular style, it’s no fuss and looks good straight out of the shower.

✨That being said bangs if cut incorrectly can end up being a disaster and layers done wrong can look like someone just took a hack saw to your hair and went on a chopping spree 😱

✨Since this was a new hairdresser I was more nervous than usual. As always I showed her the picture on my phone (pictures are always more effective than trying to exhaust your vocabulary😓).

✨Plus ever since I moved to the UAE I have had horrible luck with hairdressers apparently side bangs are a foreign concept to them 🙄.

✨45 mins⏱ and a whole lot of hair on the floor later she handed me a mirror and asked me to turn around to take a look at the final result. ✨While it was a whole lot shorter than I had anticipated, she got the bangs somewhat close to what I had asked for. 

✨What do you guys think of this look? Let me know in the comments 😘 plus what is your go to hairstyle? 

🍃Shopaholic product review: Phyto 9 Ultra Dry Hair Day Cream🍃

 Hola Bloggers!
🍃Hows everyone doing? 😘 It’s time for another product review ✨ I have been struggling with dry, frizzy visit ever since I moved to the UAE, dry 🔆weather, humidity and my hair just make for a bad equation 🍂. So for the two years I’ve been here I’ve been constantly switching between shampoos, conditioners and leave ins trying to find something that would tame my suddenly ferocious👹 mane.
🍃I have been a big fan of Phyto hair products and have found using them in conjunction with my other hair products to work best to keep my hair in check.

🍃I had been searching for this particular product: The Ultra Dry Hair Phyto 9 for the longest time here. It’s one of my favorites from the line.

🍃This is a leave in cream that consists of 9 plant extracts : macadamia oil, soybean, burdock, calendula, sage , St. John’s wart, willow, rosemary and mallow.

🍃You get 1.7 oz which lasts me about a month and I have a lot of hair 😳. Plus you only need about two dime sized squirts to cover all your hair (in my case). It can be applied to both damp or dry hair and you can heat style your hair or leave it to air dry. 

🍃It has a very mild pleasant scent, and a light texture like a lotion almost. It absorbs instantly in your hair without any stickiness. 
🍃Post application my hair instantly felt softer and moisturized and a lot less frizzy and this is when I chose to air dry it. If you heat style your results might be better. 

🍃I would absolutely recommend this product if you have dry, damaged or frizzy hair. It’s all natural and free from all the nasties (parabens, sulphates) and it actually delivers what it promises 😱.

🍃Have you tried any Phyto products? which ones would you recommend? 

Until next time xoxo 💋
