Colors! You have to Hit this Year!

NaErasescapadesColors, this whole universe is made up of colors. They define mood, culture, temperature, and most importantly seasons.

It’s literally been 9 months since the year 2017 started and it was an exciting year filled with surprises for each and every one of us. 

The Altruistic: Pastel Pink

This shade is a sober mix of pure white and red. It represents compassion, love and strength; hence we have given the title ‘altruistic’. It is a color of all seasons. When it comes to spring we picture beautiful scenery filled with cherry blossoms. When it is summer we can picture a delicious cone of strawberry ice-cream and when it is winter we can imagine the rosy cheeks of a toddler now that’s cute. Even our favorite candy is the color of pastel pink, cottony candy as cottony as the fluffy clouds. This is an amazing color that can be complemented with different colors according to the occasion.And here the hijab blogger- Rahma, has donned a pastel pink gilet along with a white top and blue jeans. It’s a perfect outfit for a lunch date with your friends and family.

Why Not? Pose with the billard table 🦄 #FashionBlogger 🦄

The Foliage: Army Green

Green is a color of harmony, it symbolizes prosperity and progress. It’s a color which soothes the eye and calms the soul. There are many shades of green such as olive green, yellow green, fresh green, light green and army green. Here we are talking about Army green, a fierce yet promising shade. In context of fashion this color is famous. Camo print is quite famous with youngster nowadays and army green is a perfect color for camo prints. And again Rahma rocked this color as she paired a black Maxi dress with an Army green over coat. This look was perfectly coupled with a brown hijab. This look is a spot on for a cold winter college day!

The Angelic: White

Whether it’s vanilla ice-cream or moving clouds, Shaun the sheep’s wool or a bridal gown, everything looks so pure and beautiful because it is in the shade of white and this shade is heavenly. It symbolizes peace and purity. This shade is a basic shade in the fashion industry. From a hijab to a ring, from a basic tee to ballerinas, this shade is a favorite! Also Rahma the hijabi icon rocked this color; she paired a black maxi skirt with a plain white top along with a printed hijab. This look is our personal favorite 🙂 the whole look is a basic combination of black and white which is bang on! We must say she has a great sense of dressing. And this color is definitely one that you need to hit this year and every following year…its evergreen!

The Allure: Lavender

Lavender is a shade that depicts luxury and royalty.And one can effortlessly look like a princess by simply wearing this shade. This is a perfect shade for ball gowns and Maxi dresses. Lavender is a challenging colour to pull off but our very own style diva – Rahma looks absolutely alluring in a pinky- lavender Maxi dress. And she had beautifully matched this Maxi dress with a denim jacket and a purple hijab. The best part of this outfit is a ring bracelet in the shade lavender. She has used minimal accessories and that is the beauty of this look. Lavender looks as beautiful as it smells. It is a colour which can make you look totally different from the crowd, but definitely in a good way 😉 Lavender screams of luxury and this particular fabric is definitely on the pricey side of fashion market but the gorgeous flow and how it beautifully drapes around Rahma is such a statement piece. Click here to shop for luxury fashion fabrics like this dress. 

Zesty: Urban Orange 

When we first listen to the very words orange we dislike it we rather think of it as something that is not appealing but when we see it, the very color reminds us of autumn. The beautiful colors of autumn. Not many of us have tasted pumpkin spice latte but thinking about it sounds tasty. Just like these appealing things let’s see how orange-brown can be worn in the fashion world. You can style orange-brown pants with a navy blue shirt or even grey shirt. Here we are back with another look by Rahma, she has worn orange-brown pants with a white t-shirt and a brown hijab to add a bit more style she has worn an orange patterned gilet. This is a very different combination but styling it right will raise eyebrows in admiration!

This was our take on “Colours you need to hit this year!” hope you all liked this post as much as we enjoyed writing it. And do mention which color /shade you love the most. See you In the next post, until then happy styling 😉

Glam Up with Gosh MakeUp

Ever since my teenage years, I’ve always been intimated by high-end brands and stuck to drugstore makeup lines, last year when a Denmark originated brand started creating a massive buzz in the blogosphere because of it’s ll natural ingredients which mean they’re Paraben-free, fragrance-free & cruelty-free, I went ahead with making my own purchases and fell in love with it’s seaweed collection.

Earlier this month. I got contacted to have a makeover done by them, and if you watched my vlog, you know your girl, had the best time of her life.I have the ugliest eyebrows in the history of mankind, (due to religious reasons I don’t get them plucked) bushy & untameable, or that’s what I thought. Until Gosh’s makeup artist did the magic and I had the honor to use #EyebrowsonFleek on my Instagram. 😍

Gosh Makeover Dubai Beauty Review UAE Youtuber Vlogger ggGosh Makeover Dubai Beauty Review UAE Youtuber Vlogger fDuring my visit to the Lifestyle store in Mall of Emirates, I got to know more about the brand and their awesome range in foundations, premiers & mascaras. Truth be told, when a brand offer makeup premiers to suit all 3 skin types (dry, oily & combination) it deserves all the shootouts & crazy fan following. Also, the mascara line up by huge, each one did something special & different.

I was suggested products which would go well with my dry skin, and to my surprise, Argan Oil was a promising ingredient in most. I walked out the store with a few products and hopefully, I will be reviewing them soon.

Until, Next Time, Love Rahma

NAYOMI BEAUTY SALON REVIEW

nayomi-beauty-salon-review-ajman-spa-uae-beauty-blogger-1Earlier this week, I made my way to Nayomi Beauty Salon in Ajman, located on Ground Floor of City Life Mall, Al Jurf to try & test their New Paraffin Treatment & the Oxygenating Facial. Popular for their ravishing Nayomi lingerie collections, the beauty salon is nothing less than a Princess Paradise. The elegant baby pink & white interiors are an additional touch to their Princess ideology.

With my Salon visits getting extremely limited because of my hectic work schedules, I knew I should use this review the right away! I needed some Silent self-pampering time away from all the worries of life and the gorgeous Nayomi Salon accommodates these wishes perfectly– it truly is a hidden gem.

Nayomi’s salon has an impressive range of options and treatment rooms dedicated to professionals who work their magic beautifully. If you’re looking to pop in for a hair treatment, full pledged makeup look or a mani-pedi Nayomi has it all.  You’ll also be pleased to know that Nayomi has a hidden, relaxing spa area to enjoy for facial & massages. And another room assigned for hair removal services.

nayomi-beauty-salon-review-ajman-spa-uae-beauty-blogger-2The cashier and waiting area as we got into the salon looked professional, neat and chic But I was immediately struck by Nayomi’s enormous colourful and quirky Nail Polish Collection contrasting really well with its white/pink decor.

My Treatments

Facial Treatment: (350 AED) After accessing my facial conditions, my Beautician ‘Mira’ suggested the Oxygenating Facial and further explained its benefits. In my case, my skin is dehydrated so I’m really glad that this treatment gives full hydration and promotes cells repair to my skin. The treatment room follows their Princess ideology and also comes with spa relaxation music & beautiful scented candles so you can be sure to fully relax and rejuvenate during the 1.5 hours facial.

Nayomi Beauty Salon  Review Facial Ajman Beauty Blogger UAEWhat I love about their trained specialist was she firstly confirmed with me whether I would like to know the treatment & products going on my face as the process continues or I would prefer a silent facial. Her hands were profoundly magical and I dozed off a couple of times during the treatment. She also gave me a complimentary hand massage while the Thalgo serum & masks were doing a wonderful job on my skin. The end results were shiny as hell, I was left with a glowing skin with a bit too much oil than I like, but after a few minutes the oil sink in beautifully.

Manicure & Pedicure: (150 AED) While I sat on their Pink Princess Throne drinking my lemon tea, the ladies  began with a thorough hand and foot wash, scrub, massage and continued their magic on my nails with filing, cutting, buffing and perfecting.  For my nails, I wanted to try a nude polish by OPI which suggestively would last me 15days.

Nayomi Beauty Salon Manicure Review Ajman Beauty Blogger UAEParaffin Treatment: (180 AED) Analysing my cracked heels, the girls suggested for their Popular Wax Treatment, The hot paraffin sits around your hand like a glove, and it feels really nice, warm, and oily! She wrapped both my hands & feet in a plastic bag and then into a washing mitt. After about 10 minutes my hands started feeling cold, which was the indication that the paraffin has cooled off and it was time to remove it.As she disclosed the bag, it left a nice layer of oil on the hands & feets, which she massaged in for a bit. The oil gets absorbed slowly, but it doesn’t leave any unpleasant feeling like when you use body butter on your hands.

The treatment definitely did wonder for my cracked heels, they were so soft & looked shiny smooth. Out of all the treatments, this particular one was my favourite and highly recommendable. <3

My overall impression for Nayomi Beauty Salon, its staff & treatments is highly positive. I’m definitely going back there for another treatment in the future especially for a back massage by Mira which costs just 100AED for half hour.There is no doubt that Nayomi provides professional, high-quality services in the most lavish, fun atmosphere.

BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY – LOVAGE COSMETICS

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

For those of us who blog part-time rarely think about the money associated. It’s the blogging perks that really make our blogging journey worthwhile and among that is encountering new brands & falling in love with them. I’m new to the Lovage Fan Club but a very loyal member after I tried their  Uplifting Collection – Macaron Box.

For those who don’t know, Lovage Cosmetics is a Dubai-based cosmetics and personal care brand which instantly turns around your mood and allows your mind to travel through a relaxing road of exquisite aroma. It takes you back to essentials, what’s better than pampering yourself at home instead of those lingering tedious trips to the spa. With a wide range of natural care, for skin, hair, and mood handmade locally in UAE- Lovage Cosmetics has become my number one brand for this month majorly for its premium collection replicating moods important in our stressful lives – Uplifting, Relaxing, Energrzing& Refreshing – each handmade with fusions of rich natural oils and enticing fragrances. Out of which I tested out Macaroon Box Uplifting Body Oil & Body Wash.

In addition to their Sets in Mood range, I also was fascinated with their wide natural soap collection and the exclusive herbal Essence from Earth range.


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESMACARON BOX BODY OIL 150ML @ 65 AED

As someone who is very selective of body lotions, trying out a Body oil for the first time I expected sticky and greasy finish. But I was delighted to be treated to a most amazing surprise, this Body Oil from Lovage Cosmetics has become my go to product espcecially after shaving my legs. The scent is utterly fantastic–not too heavy and definitely not too feminine. It’s more like a sweet, herbal blend that’s just delicious. Ingredients like bergamot, restoring clary sage and jojoba are oh-so moisturizing.

But what totally sold me is how it feels–enriching but not at all greasy, fast-absorbing and refreshing in its texture.


SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESMACARON BOX BODY WASH 300ML @ 65 AED

I love taking a nice hot shower, and nothing makes it more exciting than luxurious body wash and scrubs when it comes to aloe vera nothing captures my heart more. Just like the Body Oil the scent is very relaxing and candy-like, so I always leave my bathroom feeling like I’ve been to a spa.

Lastly, their prices are quite affordable for the most part, and the range of products is quite extensive.

GLAMBOX | DECEMBER 2015

Glam Box DecemberGlam Box DecemberA beautiful year is about to end on a very happy note, all thanks to this month’s GlamBox, Unlike. last previous boxes, this month’s Glam box was on point and delivered extremely well to my expectations. Though, the surprise was busted when Glambox announced the items way ahead of its time, the discount vouchers were the show stealer for me.

For starters, I received my box on time at the correct address, so kudos to Glambox and finally I got my Body Shop item pending from last month – Oils of life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil !!

Without further ado, check out the contents for Decembers which were profoundly my favorites.

Glam Box December

Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strip: These babies were absolute magic, I can’t stress how well they do their job. Will I buy them? Hell yea, these gems are No.1 on my shopping list.

FreshLook One-Day Contact Lens Gray: To be honest, getting something in my eye is a nightmare for me, so I’m a tad bit skeptical about if I should even try these.

Misa Nail Lacquer- 237 its you: Again I’m not a fan of nail polish, so I would surely pass this one to a friend.

Shea Butter DXB: Firstly, this 100% pure organic butter directly shipped from Africa is deeply nourishing and moisturizing. Oh but the smelling the butter is an awful and extremely obnoxious experience ever. So this one goes directly into my foot massage kitty.

Abeeco Bee Venom Mask: As many of you know, face masks are kinda my weakness, so Glambox surely got some brownie points for including this Mask/Night cream.

Loccaitane Extra Gentle Soap with Shea Butter: No one I know has ever complaints about this particular brand so adding a pure vegetable soap was such a Winner for an organic beauty product enthusiast like me.  In fact, it smells like lemongrass, one of my fav scents ever.

Parachute Gold Thick & Strong Coconut Hair Oil: Hands down, I had a quick visit back to their childhood, when all I did was cry getting that painful hair oil massage with Parachute. Though I hate the smell, but this oil is the best treatment for your damaged hair.

Body Shop  Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil: You may call me an impulsive buyer but I had that heart touching moment when you come across a product and you instant know that’s what I was looking for all these years – QUITE DRAMATIC!!! Honestly, that was my reaction the 1st time I applied this oil onto my face and today I’m a proud owner of BodyShops Oils of Life 30ml bottle priced @ 175 AED.

HOW TO STYLE YOUR 'HIJABI' GRADUATION OUTFIT

How to style Graduation Outfit HijabiSo I graduated! Another prominent milestone of my life has been accomplished. The indignation of countless research papers, sleepless nights & hours of sleeping with eyes open in the last three years was honoured with a prestige degree last night. In the time, I was in my college, education was merely a minor part of my journey. Instead, my most cherished moments would be the ones spent outside my classroom. When you step into the corporate world, that’s when you realize, the lessons taught outside the textbooks will be the most fruitful ones. No matter where we end, there are challenges ahead of us. This journey taught me how to overcome each barrier with head held high and my heart wide open. Life may get hard and people may turn bad but Be kind! Be Respectful! Be Humble! = Be DIFFERENT !!

If you are on the final stage or just beginning your university life, all I would say is to ENJOY and cease every opportunity you get with your friends. Never miss out a party or an outing, build as many memories you can. Take infinite photographs but do not forget to have fun in between those moments just to get the perfect pose.

Inspire people around you and encourage them to excel, it’s a quality very few possess nowadays. And I consider myself extremely blessed to have discovered such friends in my college life who saw my full potential & truly motivated me to pursue my dream!! Today if I’m a blogger and excelling in this field, a huge part of this was made true only by the people I found in last 3 years.

After a frustrating and depressing start to this beauty subscription last month, would Glambox be able to live up to my expectations was a question running through my mind will I unwrapped this month’s box.

REVIEW BATTLE: GARNIER BB CREAM

blueeeBB creams have swiftly spread across all beauty market — from cult brands like Benefit to the best drugstore brands. And even us beauty bloggers (who are overly critical in their job) are always excited about the new releases in the bb cream product line. Garnier released their +SPF 50 UV Protection BB Cream in UAE in Summer 2015. I had high expectations from this particular product given how happy I was with Garnier’s Miracle Skin Perfector  which was my ultimate favourite product throughout the final year of my university.
