📸ShopaholicBlogs : On Terrible Pictures Then & Being a Poser Now 📸

I have always enjoyed posing for pictures📸 provided that I could see them after immediately and get rid of ones that were not flattering 😳. Today with IPhones and DSLR’s and countless filters we have a lot more control over how our pictures turn out (excluding the truly hideous ones taken by others who then further embarrass you by posting the humiliating picture in which except for themselves everyone else is either suffering from red eye or is caught with their mouth open in a yawn or mid laugh or some other truly unflattering pose that shouldn’t see the light of day let alone be posted all over social media with you tagged in bold 🤬😡.

📸Growing up however we had zero control over how our pictures would turn out. I’m referring to the reel cameras of the good old days in which you had to put in a roll of film with either 24 or 36 exposures and then wait until the film roll was back from the photo studio where the pictures were developed old school style and printed onto photo paper and that could take up-to a week. During this time there was a absolutely no way to preview the pictures and you had to wait for the dreaded envelope to arrive whereupon it would be viewed by the entire family together😳. I cannot tell you how many cringe 😫worthy photos of me are still floating around in various cousins and aunties dressing table drawers that some well meaning relative often times post on FB with the hashtag #throwback or #family which illicit comments like haye yeh tum aisi theen?? (Omg! You looked like that!)Which trust me since puberty was exceptionally unkind to me are pictures that truly deserve to be set on fire🔥

📸So back to the present and a safe distance away from my unflattering early teens 😳 Every-time I get a chance to dress up I make sure I pose like a pro and bring out my inner fashionista 😘 So for today’s what I wore post i donned this gorgeous block print maxi dress in airy cotton paired with what else my red👠 juttis/khussas✨. Am I spring🌸 and summer 🌞 ready or what 😘 Tell me some of your terrible picture stories 📸

Black & White OOTD✨

✨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: LoftJeans : LoftShoes : Charles & Keith

Casual Sunday OOTD✨

🌞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 😊

Outfit deets:

Top & Pants : Loft

Shoes: Toms

Accessories: Tiffany , Fabula Jewels

🌞Hope you guys enjoyed this OOTD❣️ Until next time loves 💕❣️

Spring Showers OOTD ☔️

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 💋!

Chaand Raat OOTD🌙

🌙Hola 💕Love Bunnies!🐰

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

🌙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 💦. 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 😋. Which basically means an evening centered around food 🥘.

🌙So here’s a peek into the latest OOTD, and yes I did include pics of the yummy food 😋.🌙Hope you guys enjoy this special OOTD✨! Best wishes to all of you celebrating today and tomorrow 😘

💋Shopaholic’s 15 Fun Facts About Me 💋

💋Hey Lovelies ,

 Today’s post is going to bring you up close and personal with your favorite blogger : Me! 😘 haha 😂 ok so maybe I’m not on your top 10 favorite people list yet but maybe this fun fact sheet will change that and get me into the top 💯?

Let’s get started already!

💋1- I don’t wear makeup unless it’s a special occasion. Everyday I’m barefaced and yes that includes most OOTD posts unless I specifically state I’m wearing makeup. Even then it’s limited to tinted moisturizer, lipstick, kohl and blush.

💋2-I love acting would love to make a career out of it someday lol wishful thinking 😋.

💋3- I love buying clothes I mean if I could wear a new outfit everyday that would be the perfect world 🌎 for me 😇

💋4- I hate working out 🏋🏻 but I do it anyway because my body attracts fat like a magnet 😳.

💋5- I wish I had the power to travel back in time and redo some of the things that I messed up 😔.

💋6-I have always wanted to do a cartwheel and a handstand.

💋7- I wish junk food and desserts weren’t fattening. 😋

💋8- I have always dreamed of waking up looking perfectly made up like in the 🎥 movies or in Instagram selfies 💋.Usually when I wake up I look like I’ve been wrestling wild cats all night😾😺.

💋9-I don’t believe in ghosts….except when I’m by myself at night and I’ve watched a horror flick 😳

💋10- I hate wearing heels 👠 if could wear my Tom’s everywhere I totally would 😊.

💋11- I color match my lingerie 😳 it drives me crazy if they aren’t the same color 😖.

💋12- I hate airplane food ✈️whenever I can I always buy myself a sandwich and a muffin( Costa, Paul or Starbucks 😋)to eat on board. (Doesn’t work out so well for long haul flights though 😡).

💋13- I love 💕rose scented anything (perfumes, cosmetics, skincare products 🌹). I recently tested ( more like sprayed it all over myself till the sales person raised her eyebrows) the rose 🌹 scented Oud (Arabic fragrance) from Loccitane and totally loved it 😍. (Hey it was a tester 😳)

💋14- I used to love reading 📖 but I haven’t been enthralled by a book since Harry Potter 😢. (Any recommendations?)

💋15– I am so sick and tired of people going on racist rants and spreading hate and violence just because they think they are entitled on the basis of their skin color which FYI is determined by your genes and not something that makes you superior or that you can change. ( Unless you happen to be Michael Jackson😎).

💋So there it is guys a little bit more about myself. Hope you guys enjoyed reading do let me know in the comments 😘.
