& 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)

I think that one of the most important elements of a serene bedroom is a beautined up nightstands. So here are some very easy tips that I like to follow for the visual anchor of my room. The easiest way to start up is by getting a vase and a set of flowers whether you like them fake or real, flowers always left up the entire room. I got my vase from Zarahome filled it up with my favorite flower (pink peonies). I always check Zarahome website before hitting the mall, to ensure that what I’m looking for is available instead of coming back home empty handed.

Adding Books is always a good decorating tip, especially fashion books, always beautifully covered. So this would be the second thing I’d have on my table.

Your nightstand has to contain the essential items that you need just before going to sleep, and first thing when you wake up in the morning. How to sum those essentials on your nightstand is pretty easy. All you need is a tray. In my case At night the first thing I need is Baies interior scent, the scent combines A bouquet of roses and blackcurrant leaves, which gives a perfect breeze of a garden feel in my room, so I like to spray a bit of it before I hit the shower. I also like to keep my favorite hand & body cream “PINK wild at heart” and my favorite perfumes in a tiny tray ( Wild bluebell by Jo Malone, Valentina by Valentino, Fresh Musk and Light Musk by Aljazeera). I love Arabian scents from Oud to Musk, my favorite scent for the last month has been Light Musk! You need to give it a sniff if you’re a die hard Arabian scents lover.

EDITED 3 photco 1-3What I keep on my nightstand is very changeable sometimes instead of having a set of perfumes, I might replace them with a candle or a jewellery box where I keep my daily jewellery or the leftovers of yesterday’s party, I got the green one and the mirrored one from Zarahome.

My second nightstand is a combination of stolen tableware from my mom’s kitchen kabord – way to be creative huh?- Starting from a heart-shaped tray from iDesign, containing a Villeroy&Boch glass jar for updated seasonal nailpolish, My favorite Jo Malone summery body cream Blackberry&bay and LSAinternational bowl that could contain girly snacks or daily jewels.

What’s in My Bag

Untitled-46 It’s finally the “What’s in my bag” blogpost that you guys wanted to see. The reason I did not do one earlier is because I’m the kind of person that would go out with an empty bag. I’m not even exaggerating, I’d literately just go out with a bag that contains absolutely nothing. Not even my phone *because it’s always out of charge*. Nevertheless, there would be those rare moments where I would actually carry tangible items in my bag and today was one of those moments so I thought to myself I should finally do the post!

Untitled-1 Untitled-10

Untitled-14 Untitled-15 Untitled-16Untitled-18 Untitled-19 Untitled-21 IMG_0600 copyWhat’s in my bag: Wallet, International Mangement book, Paperchase notebook, Calculator, pencilcase, Planner, Dior sunnies, My iphone coverd by Pooh, Cosmetic bag.

What’s in my cosmetic bag: Laura Mercier silk creme foundation, MAC 130 brush, Inglot lipstick palette, Giorgio Armani eyes to kill mascara, Maybelline dream lumi touch concealer, Hand Maid by Soap and Glory, A super old Hello kitty mirror that is not even mine *I stole it from my sister* hehe. I had few nail polishes because I have a two hour long break and I thought I’d color my nails. I couldn’t pick what color I wanted at home so I just packed them all: Tomford in Smoke Red. Essie in Hot Coco. Topshop Nails in Big Smoke.

Let me know if you would like to see “What’s in my bag” regularly xo.

Piccadilly

On a Saturday morning after grabbing my rich hot chocolate from Pret. I walked over to the street that never sleeps. The place you go to for shopping, fine afternoon tea or just little bites of ice cream. I love Piccadilly for so many reasons. One of them is that you never feel alone, as much as I hate crowded places, I have made peace with the crowds of Piccadilly.

I don’t know how I walked from the hotel to Piccadilly that day was it because of my   magical loafers that I was wearing or because of Helio Sequence music dancing in my ears.

It never hurts to visit Chinatown…

..and have American icecream

Wore skinny jeans, plain topshop white top, oversized blazer & a classic Chanel, completing the look with Sanrio Hello Kitty necklace. My makeup was: Giorgio Armani eyes to kill mascara. And I never of course forget my Sunscreen I used Vichy spf 50+ & colored my nails with Topshop Daydreem.
