December Ends Again

Processed with VSCOcam with m5 presetAnother cake, another candle lit, another wish made..

My annual birthday post is a little bit late this year. Only because it’s been a chaotic year with lots and lots of ups and downs until the last minute of the 31st of December.  Like every year December would come and remind me of what’s actually important in life and what I should value more and what I should just ignore, cut off my life and never look back at.

I can never express in words what 2014 has taught me, so darn much. And I’ve been thinking for a while if I should write about it on my blog or is it too personal to share? it’s still a decision I haven’t made, we’ll see..

This post isn’t about the “turning point” of my life but it’s about the love and gratitude I hold in my heart toward those that have showed me constant care, love and patience over the years. I really can’t even begin to describe how good my friends have been to me & how lucky and grateful I am to have them..

So much I want to write but my hands can’t seem to type much… I think I lost the ability to blog or I’m a bit rusty for it? I don’t know. But what I do know is that I loved every little detail and appreciated every effort my sister and friend Haya put in this beautiful tea party!

Spring

IMG_7452 Amidst the noise and crowds, the shops and carts all I needed was an inhale of a tranquil oasis, somewhere where I could lose myself in the beauty of what God has created. The closest place that fitted my cravings was St. James Park, so this is where mt feet carried me..
An early spring has waved into London this year and every park is ornamented with beautiful-odoriferous blossoms that were falling off their branches discoloring the ground as if a shower of pink snow had fallen. I honestly cannot describe how beautiful the park is because of them and how joyful it is to look at them!

I think pastels are absolutely magnificent for spring, not too bright but light enough.

Sweets day II

photo 2I can’t believe a year has passed on my last sweetsday post.. and here comes again another half traditional half modernized outfit for the day.

What I wore: a bisht by Purpura fashion (Kuwaiti designer), top shop jumpsuit. Paired it with Christian Louboutin brown pumps.

Unlike the annual-usual over accessorizing during grangao nigh, I went for very little jewels this time, and there were two reasons for that. First, the bisht didn’t really give me much choice. And the second reason is that I was really excited to finally have an occasion and an outfit that fits my 20s inspired necklace that my dad has gotten for me the last time he visited Turkey. The excitement came after F. Scott Fitzgerald’s recent remake of the great Gatsby where the movie had wide ranges of stone and pearl stunners that have made me fall deeper in love with Ziegfeld collection. An addition to the necklace I added two serpenti rings and gold earrings.

Few highlights of my makeup on the 14th of Ramadan was maybelline one by one mascara, Tom Ford pure pink lipstick (which is the most worn lipstick I’ve ever owned and I’m very sad they have discontinued it) and finally glow getter fake tan.photwwwwo 2

An advice to glow getter fake tan users: apply it hours before you get ready you’re gonna get AMAZING results. I used to spray it minutes before I leave the house which was a huge mistake it’s gonna stink your cloths and won’t have enough time to sink into your skin. I could see a huge difference when I apply it hours before my date night.

What I Wore: Gold Baroque

IMG_1650 I decided I wanted to do more posts on my outfits so you will be seeing a lot of “What I Wore” posts followed by makeup worn as well. I hope you would enjoy the posts as much as I enjoy shooting them..

It was my friend’s wedding a couple of days ago, and of course it wouldn’t be a wedding without crucial last-minute fittings and touchups.. I decided to put on a one shoulder, off white dress. I’m always in for less is more but there are certain dresses that scream for MORE.. more jewellery and more sparkle.

Dress: Richard Nicoll
Cuff: Tom Binns
Serpenti Brecelets: Bvlgari
Necklace: Van Cleef and Arpels
Clutch: Charlotte Olympia
Shoes: Charlotte Olympia
