Chaand Raat OOTD๐ŸŒ™

๐ŸŒ™Hola ๐Ÿ’•Love Bunnies!๐Ÿฐ

๐ŸŒ™First off Chaand Raat Mubarak (Day before Eid) to all those celebrating ๐ŸŽ‰Eid Al-Adha! Secondly today thankfully the weather eased up a bit and according to the forecast September will be cooler so yay๐ŸŽ‰ Dubai people finally can rejoice! 

๐ŸŒ™Which brings us to today’s OOTD, since it happened to be the day before Eid and it had become a bit cooler though the lack of heat was made up by the increase in humidity ๐Ÿ’ฆ. Nevertheless Eid has a way of cheering you up regardless of the weather so me and family decided to head out and enjoy ourselves desi style ๐Ÿ˜‹. Which basically means an evening centered around food ๐Ÿฅ˜.

๐ŸŒ™So here’s a peek into the latest OOTD, and yes I did include pics of the yummy food ๐Ÿ˜‹.๐ŸŒ™Hope you guys enjoy this special OOTDโœจ! Best wishes to all of you celebrating today and tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜˜

๐Ÿ’‹3- I love buying clothes I mean if I could wear a new outfit everyday that would be the perfect world ๐ŸŒŽ for me ๐Ÿ˜‡

๐Ÿ’‹4- I hate working out ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿป but I do it anyway because my body attracts fat like a magnet ๐Ÿ˜ณ.

๐Ÿ’‹5- I wish I had the power to travel back in time and redo some of the things that I messed up ๐Ÿ˜”.

๐Ÿ’‹6-I have always wanted to do a cartwheel and a handstand.

๐Ÿ’‹14- I used to love reading ๐Ÿ“– but I havenโ€™t been enthralled by a book since Harry Potter ๐Ÿ˜ข. (Any recommendations?)

๐ŸŒธShopaholic’s Closet Remix Spring Edition ๐ŸŒธ

Hello Everyone!

Happy Spring ๐ŸŒธ! Hopefully you have bid adieu to the winter โ„๏ธ season where you live ๐ŸŒ. 

Today’s post is all about remixing your wardrobe and putting together different looks with a few staple pieces. If you remember my last spring๐ŸŒธ OOTD featured some pieces which you will see again in this post. If you are on a budget being able to mix together pieces to create different looks is the way to go.

Since spring ๐ŸŒธand summerโ˜€๏ธ here are pretty ๐Ÿ”ฅwarm skirts and dresses are the mainstays in my closet. I usually prefer to pair prints on my upper half with solid colors on the bottom. Since I’m a ๐Ÿ pear shape I feel this combination balances out my figure. 

For today’s look I chose to pair the same dark colored skirt I wore in my spring OOTD with a printed top. Since it was raining I chose a denim jacket to finish the look. I’m a flats girl despite being vertically challenged ๐Ÿ˜‹ so these gorgeous sandals added just the right amount of bling with their gold detailโœจ

As always outfit deets will be at the end of the post. Let me know how you remix your wardrobe and what are some of your spring ๐ŸŒธstaples. 


๐ŸŒธOutfit details :

๐ŸŒธTop : Loft

๐ŸŒธSkirt : Banana Republic

๐ŸŒธJacket : Old Navy

๐ŸŒธSandals : Aldo

๐ŸŒธBag : LV

๐ŸŒธAccessories : Forever 21

As always I would ๐Ÿ’žlove to hear from you ๐Ÿ˜˜ 

Until next time xoxo ๐Ÿ’‹

๐ŸŒบShopaholic returns : The Spring OOTD๐ŸŒบ

Hello my Loves!๐Ÿ’ž

๐ŸŒบI know that I have been totally ignoring the blog and my lovely blogging family ๐Ÿ˜ข. Lately I was overwhelmed by my studies and I simply could not manage my time so everything kind of โ„๏ธsnowballed and I kept falling way behind the more I tried to catch up.

๐ŸŒบAnyways today marks the start of a lot of things new and fresh. I am almost done with my semester and hopefully will be catching up on my to do list.

๐ŸŒบSo an OOTD seemed like the best way to start afresh since I love โค๏ธ posing for the camera ๐Ÿ˜.

๐ŸŒบWe had a barely there winterโ„๏ธ here in Dubai just 3 days ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ญ. And judging by the temperature spring will be short lived as well. So I had to throw a look together in a hurry to capture the fleeting coolness of spring in the desert ๐ŸŒต. 

๐ŸŒบHope you guys enjoy this look while it doesn’t shout flowers! ๐ŸŒบ hopefully it makes you think of cool spring showers coming your way๐Ÿ˜˜


๐ŸŒบSandals : Steve Madden

๐ŸŒบBag : LV

๐ŸŒบ Skirt & Top : Loft 

๐ŸŒบMakeup : Loccitane Tinted Lip Balm in Rose

๐ŸŒบHope you guys have a fabulous weekend as always leave your comments down below I would love to chat with you ๐Ÿ˜˜

๐ŸŽShopaholic’s Birthdayโฃ๏ธ ๐ŸŽ

๐ŸŽ‰It’s my Birthday!๐ŸŽ‰ 

๐ŸŽI know some people might find it incredibly childish that I still get so ridiculously excited about my birthday but I do๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜!

๐ŸŽI love getting surprised on my birthday and you can bet I want everyone around me to make a huge fuss about it too โœจ๐ŸŽ‰

๐ŸŽWhen I was younger my mom used to throw these huge birthday parties for me and my sisters and invite the entire family and extended relatives. I would be dressed up in something lacy, frilly or tutuish which I would usually ruin by the end of the night ( our parties were usually lavish catered affairs ๐Ÿธ).

๐ŸŽThe last big birthday bash I remember was my 16th ๐ŸŽ‰after that we would usually keep the birthdays low key and as time went on it would just be my sisters, parents and my bff’s celebrating with a cake and gifts. Regardless of the scale of the celebration, I love feeling special on this particular day. Maybe it’s the cake that has your name on it or the cupcake with a single candle just for you or the brightly wrapped presents or having people taking the time out from their busy lives to wish you( I admit most wishes these days are via Facebook or whatsapp ๐Ÿ˜’) .

๐ŸŽSo this birthday even though I had already dragged my family over to the Tory Burch store and gotten myself an early birthday ๐ŸŽpresent.๐ŸŽ( I start getting excited about my birthday from the first of October ๐Ÿ˜ณ. Even when I was a kid I used to open my presents before my birthday party and would pantomime the whole surprised affair later for the benefit of the guests ๐Ÿ˜).

๐ŸŽThis year the family decided the birthday surprise reaction had to be real so they went ahead and hid my other presents and when it was time for the big reveal they were ready with the cameras to catch my real reactions ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽCan you tell I’m excited!๐Ÿ˜ Excuse my rumpled appearance I had no idea they were planning all this or I would have striked my usual OOTD pose ๐Ÿ˜‰.

๐ŸŽStay tuned for the birthday gifts to be showcased in a special Shopaholic Birthday OOTD post coming soon ๐Ÿ˜˜

๐ŸŽHow do you guys celebrate your birthdays? Let me know right here ๐Ÿ˜˜
