THE ONE WITH #SHIRTGOALS

Good Evening Stylers,

So What can be more satisfying than finding a piece that screams your soul inside out?  This gorgeous A/W shirt has ‘me’ written all over it, honestly, I couldn’t hold my excitement when I got one of a kinda plaid shirt delivered at my desk. So not only is this my ideal pattern for this season, but also the cotton flannel fabric is the perfect to snuggle up in, during a movie or date night. Rather than the more obvious red plaid shirts, I just love to twist my ensemble around the shades of navy blue & military green. I love flannel prints & embroidered fabric from Tissura.

I knew this shirt deserved a part on my blog when I turned it around.  It has “University of Bloggers” printed on, I couldn’t believe my eyes or my luck. I was beyond thrilled to collaborate with Splash Fashion to showcase their new collection highlighting Bloggers and Vloggers.

I know my fellow bloggers are already going GAGA on this unique totally relatable fashion hit. Perhaps, now you know where to find it?

Follow me on Instagram and Facebook to stay updated on my latest collabs.

Until Next Time,
Love Rahma

 

Royal Tea Party @ Palace Downtown, Dubai

Palace Downtown's BVLGARI Afternoon Garden Tea Party food blogger from dubai royal princess tea party discover palace

I was forever a daydreamer, hosting make-believe fancy tea parties for my soft toys and troubling my mom to bring down those elegant china dishes and order miniature cupcakes and cookies, pretending to be a royal princess. Though I’m a messy eater and surely not sophisticated enough for regal ballroom parties, I just had to jump on the chance to bring back those childhood memories with Palace Downtown’s BVLGARI Afternoon Garden Tea Party.

Relaxing and quiet, with live music accompaniment in the background. The lush Garden of Palace Downtown with a view of the waterfront and beautiful white aesthetics on the tables exudes an elegant sophisticated charm the moment you step in. My date for the afternoon was Momna from @mytasteperspective, a darling to share some of here travel stories with me while we munched on some truly satisfying pieces.

We began our high tea set with a choice of tea or coffee for each of us. After serving us our chosen beverages fruity green tea for me), we were then presented with the highlight of the afternoon – an ornate 3-tiered tray with colorful and delectable sweet and savory snacks. So what did we have? Take a deep breath and unbuckle your belt …

THE ONE WHERE BOOKS GOT DELIVERED TO MY HOME

Bookish.ae review online library in dubai uae bookstagramHello Stylers,

As a content creator & lifestyle blogger, my work demands to be in front of the screen almost 10-12 hours a day .For years I vouched for EBooks, as they were easy to carry on my phone, readily available to download & super affordable. But my eyes & soul can’t take another minute of digitalizing my favourite pass time. So my long lost love for physical copies was renewed by a recent find in Dubai Digital market. Oh the Irony, my solution to digital detoxification was found on an online podium.

Introducing ‘Bookish.ae’ an online library that delivers your favourite books at your doorstep. In all certainty, I’m against splurging on physical copies which are read once and come to be a decoration piece at your bookshelf. Instead, a library offers an economical experience and if it delivers directly to your door, what’s the harm? #LazyGirlHacks

My every single visit to a bookstore ends with me walking out the doors empty handed but a mental checklist of hundred books to read, yet never spending a dime on a physical copy. Most books are generally priced between 40 to 50 AED at bookstores, which made me love bookish.ae way more. Bookish.ae provides an affordable membership starting with AED 49; each plan has a different number and types of books you can rent each month. So now instead of one, I get to read plenty within a month for the same price.

Check out these step-by-step instructions on how to join Bookish.ae.

Last month I subscribed to their Book Lover Membership which costs AED 99 for 6 months or AED 119 per month in which you can avail unlimited books per month (4 books at a time), a free joining gift on first delivery & membership program invites.

Though my ideal choice is young adult rom-com, this time I played around with my selection and rented out different authors & genres. And oh bouy I was surprised, in a very positive way. My first delivery included the following books

What I know for sure by Oprah Winfrey
Safe Haven by Nicholas Spark
The Cinderella Moment by Gemma Fox
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J K Rowling.

Pros

Affordable memberships with free home delivery
More than 5000s books  to choose from covering different genres & authors including ones from India & Middle East.
You don’t have to return a book at the end of the month as long as your membership is still active, and there are no late fees or due dates.

 

Cons

Unfortunately, they only Deliver in Dubai – The only con I could find after testing the service for one whole month.

Final Verdict

Hands down, this is the best innovation made for a book lover and lazy girls. Plus, with so much being digitalized, a physical copy brings in a sentimental value,  the way the pages feel in your hands, the rich scent of paper, the way they wear over time and gain character.
