Superwoman

You're not superwoman. You cannot please everybody. Some might not like your attitude towards life, or the fact that you like to have your own style.Some people might hate the fact that you stand up for what you think is right. Some might hate your handbag, your shoes, the way you wear your eye makeup, or the way you do your hair.Some might hate you so much that they invoke hate in others. It spreads like wildfire. You were not born to please these people. You were born unique and you have the right to be yourself- as you want to be. You were born to do the things you want to do, and the way you want to do them. You do not have to listen to the mindless comments people make as you walk by, or the horrid rumors you hear about yourself. What people say, really is none of your business. Everyone has a right to say what they want to say, you just have to not let it get to you. You shouldn't have to stress about what they think of you.You needn't worry about petty things when you've got greater things in life to look forward to, when you have family and when you have the people that REALLY matter. You cannot comfort the world. You cannot save others from the hatred that has sprouted within them.You cannot be a hero to all.You're not superwoman.

Cheerios

I have absolutely no words or rants for today's blog post. Let me just say that this dress was a huge bargain for just 5 BD on sale. I absolutely love the style, color and fit and how well it sits with my purple chain strap bag.I paired it with nude pumps to keep the color blocking minimal.
That's about it. I'm cheery. Are you?

Feels like Christmas

 The festive season is here and while we have kick started our Weekly Present Program with a HUGE hit, we have also finalized our new logo and artwork for our website . I cannot wait to reveal the new skin on our blog and a few secrets we have been keeping from you. 2015 is looking so good and our entire team is so excited to be ending this year by giving away gifts to our readers. You guys have helped us come this far, which is why we wanted to give something back. Remember, our giveaways are only for the month of December and there are still 3 gifts up for grabs. If you haven’t entered into our WPP, simply do so by liking our Facebook page and follow the instructions on our WPP photograph
Moving on to the look, red is very appropriate at the moment which is why I paired this bright red satin blouse with a gold embroidered skirt and a perfume bottle clutch from Plush Delights.
Hope you are loving December as much as we are.

Plush Delights

 I recently had the opportunity of working with Plush Delights, A name known in the Middle East for their array of high quality acrylic clutches or ‘delights’ as the founders, Jyoti Mittal and Wafa Rauf like to call them.
I like to pick up statement accessories that are great conversation starters and as I was introduced to these delights, I certainly was impressed. The delights come in a range of colors and styles, from clear colored to fiercely studded and text placement acrylic boxes that suit any occasion.
Clear Perspex is trending and a lot of women seem to oppose the rage, because  they would rather have the contents of a women’s bag be ‘private’. But here’s the chance to show off that cute coin purse that’s lost in an oversized bag or that gorgeous lipstick where the casing is prettier than the shade. Miniature perfume bottles and embellished pens are all great accessories to add into transparent bags. I personally think that clear clutches are perfect for parties and seeing that it’s the festive season, these delights seem even more appropriate. Of course, you would want to secure your cash or card into a card holder and then throw them in before you go out around town looking fabulous. With emphasis on innovation, style and quality, each delight is a star on it’s own!

Plush delights stocks at Vallydez Dubai and operate in the Middle East but they do ship worldwide. Prices range from 35-70 BHD depending on the style and detailing of the selected item.
To know more about Plush Delights and place your order, which I highly recommend, check out @plush_delights on instagram and whatsapp +973 33842040 / +973 38453607 to order.

The Classic Trench

 I love me a well-fitted, classic black trench coat for fall. It is the most versatile piece of winter clothing to own, as you can dress them up or down depending on the occasion. White tan colored trench coats are also great, I think they're more day- appropriate but a black coat is perfect for any time of the day.
Be it work or a night out, work with jeans , dresses or pant-suits, a trench coat can take any outfit from boring to fabulous in a matter of minutes.
My only advice would be to invest in a good quality suit-material coat that will last long. Un-structured coats can make you look shabby and felt coats can attract all dust and lint, making it impossible to maintain.
In this look, I wore a gold embossed tulip dress underneath my trusty trench so that the metallic color pops from under neath without being too over-the-top. Snakeskin print metallic shoes and a bright pink pout to match my clutch added as an accent color without stealing the focus from the coat.
I personally love trench coats, what about you? How would you style yours?

Jewel Tones

 The year is coming to an end. One more month to go and it’s a new year, which calls for a fresher look for the blog. While the entire team is busy with our rebranding that will launch by the 1st week of 2015, we’re also hosting a holiday giveaway next month. 4 amazing giveaways await 4 lucky readers. Because it’s going to be more Facebook – related, I suggest you like our page by clicking HERE if you haven’t already. We partnered with Swarovski last year and this season we’ve partnered with some amazing beauty and cosmetic brands. Stay tuned for the 1st giveaway to be announced on December 1st.
Moving on to my outfit, I wore a sateen 3 D sequin print dress to a late lunch date with the crew and threw on my favorite velvet crop top over, just to add in a mix of textures. The sun is still out and shining bright (evident from the light reflecting off of my dress) so it’s hard to wear thick layers. Until then, layering lighter pieces is a safer option and a more comfortable one too.
