& Other Stories Haul

photo 2-1 copyI still have so much to tell you about my summer vacation and what you shouldn’t miss if you plan your euro-trip but I seriously couldn’t wait to rave and tell you all about my new find (probably not so new to so many people).

Paris has been our sixth and last stop and you certainly know what Paris is mostly famous for: The shopping, lots of it. On one of the golden days, as we were walking under the sunlight and as we passed by the historical Place Vendome I was stunned by the beauty of fashion that revolved in one circle, we finally reached rue Saint-Honoré and there it was “& other stories” which is an amazing shopping store, it easily entered my list of top places to shop at. Lucky for me they also have a store in London, I’m definitely going to be a regular.

This is what I have bought:

-Angora-blend sweater
Metal Choker Necklace (I forgot to take a picture of it)
-Panel leggings
-Punk Bouquet body wash
-Punk Bouquet body scrub: I have already tried this product and I have fallen harshly in love with it. Sometimes scrubs could be a bit hard on my skin, not this one, incredibly soft( the softest scrub I have ever used) yet gets rid of any dry patches, leaving my skin polished with a silken texture and a luscious scent.
-Punk Bouquet body Soufflé: I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I said I want to marry this product. It has every quality that I look for in a body lotion: Scent lasts for the entire day and the next day!, sinks into my skin as soon as I apply it which does not make me feel like a sticky creature that needs to be dried before touching anything & just smells absolutely heavenly.
-Equatorial Dreams body scrub
-Linsay Salmon nailpolish: Highly pigmented, long lasting and dries up so fast which is something that I REALLY appreciate.
-Say Pink nailpolish
*(There are things that you could see in the photo but I did not mention them because they were picked up by my sister and not me)

LFW: Burberry Prorsum “Trench Kisses”

What I’m usually excited to see in a Burberry show are the coats. A Burberry coat never leaves my wishlist. Every season Christopher Bailey dazzles my heart away with his signature coats adding a new element to the remaining classic. On the recent show titled “Trench kisses” I was even more eager to see the signature trench coats. I was surprised to have found that my eyes loved most of what was on the runway from head to toe. The collection included black, white, camel, and dregs of wine-red. Animal prints from jaguar to leopard printed on sheared fur.

Girls Night out

After spending the day with my dad, sister and brother at Greenwich I needed to see my girls, first we had a stop at Selfridges. And what’s a better meeting point than my favorite department store? did a little shopping & then headed for one of the best hot chocolates I’ve ever tasted at thistle hotel (Thanks to Sara & Jwaher who told me about it). Now to be honest with you it’s not the greatest place for a sit down but you can always pick up your to go cup.

The sun started fading as we continued our walk to the knightbridge, where we stopped for Arabic desserts & Coffee.

How I wore my make up:

So many people asked me about my daily makeup and outfits, so I decided to make a frequent blogpost about that. Before getting into makeup let’s talk about “The before”:

1- I start first by applying sunscreen “Remede”

2- Then apply “Beaute Initiale” by Chanel (I only apply this step when my face is dehydrated)

3- Wait a couple of minutes, then apply Tom Ford protective Primer

4- Last is Prep+Prime by MAC, helps your makeup stay longer

After protecting my skin I start applying my makeup.

1- First thing I apply is One Base concealer by “Cargo”

2- Then, Chanel “Mat Lumiere” foundation

3- fill my eye brows with “Rich brown 11” by Bobbi Brown

4- Start applying eyeshadow, this time I chose to use one of my favorite kits that I created by MAC it contains four colors “Kid” “Nylon” “Tempting” “Charcoal brown”

5- Apply eyeliner, I use “RapidBlack” penultimate eyeliner by MAC. Definitely the best eyeliner I’ve used, I’d never change it.

6- First I use eyelashes curler, then apply Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara.

7- Apply bronzing powder by MAC “Refined Golden”

8- And it ends with the application of lipstick, I used “Costa Chic” by MAC

Top: Massimo Dutti

Purse: Chanel ( I kinda stole my mom’s vintage Chanel) :p
