What i’ve been loving.. in June

Welcome.. to part 2 of posts about what happened in June but this time i’m going to write about what i’ve been loving and what really inspires fashion wise and also makeup wise ..

now, i’m a huge fan of color.. but, what mostly caught my attention is neutrals (mostly black) i love black so much that i get in trouble for it, my mom always say “NO” to black, but i actually think it’s chic, sophisticated color that looks beautiful on every single human being.

and lately, i’ve been loving all black outfit, all white outfit, or black and white outfit..or any black and white piece.

I always love how Candice Swanepoel pull off a black outfit.

Okay, now let’s talk about someone who i’ve been adoring they’re style lately on the red carpet.. Shailene Woodley !!

her style is simply amazing, she can pull off any thing! the fact that she wore a dress with oxfords or sneakers or whatever makes it so cool, that i’m actually planning on wearing a dress with sneakers (cute looking sneakers!)!!

after seeing her rocking a yellow dress.. i’m craving a yellow dress right now, but my idea slightly start to change, but if had a chance to spot a yellow dress? yeah, it’s going to my closet! but, the whole idea of Shailene Woodley’s style definitely crossing my mind!

One of my favorite “beauty gurus” is Shannon Harris (aka Shaaanxo) she is phenomenal!! her face.. stunning, her style..breathtaking, her hair.. EVERYTHING!!! she is simply amazing and beautiful and talented and her style is really inspiring!!

and every makeup look she did.. she can pull it off, which is amazing!! she can rock rainbow eyes, bright green lips, possibly ANYTHING!!

Let’s talk Nikkietutorials she is the one who inspires me to take makeup risks, and also, she is talented, can pull off any makeup look, she’s also funny!

Image

Shani Grimmond.. she is a new discovery of mine this month.. OBSESSED with her channel already!.. she is a young, talented, beautiful youtuber with a killer sense of style, and her hair is amazing also, she is cute, quirky, positive, simply beautiful!

i’ve seen this picture a lot at weheartit, and people seem like they don’t know who she is,

now you know, you’re welcome! ūüôā

i wanted to cut my hair for the longest time.. and i couldn’t.. when i just thought about it, a lot of people cut their hair, and i’m like “WHAT?!!” i have really long hair (it’s past my waist so..) and to be honest, i’m not a big fan of really short hair. but, i thought about it since Jennifer Lawrence and Shailene Woodley have really short hair..and they have kind of round and full faces , and my face is ridiculously round, and i have read an article about hair and face shapes , and it says that short haircuts really suits round faces!!

and that was it for what i have been loving and inspired by in the month of June..

thank you for reading, and look out for July cause i’ll be posting more..

What Happened..In June 2014

I cannot believe that June is at the end of it!! and we are already in the middle of the summer!!anyway, i’ve been so busy in June That i only wrote my first two posts!!

The first thing and the most exciting thing that happened in June (to be honest, the second most exciting¬†thing) is this blog! unfortunately i don’t remember the exact day, but it’s in June..

the Second (AND the most exciting thing!!) is that I got a iPhone 5s!! this is really exciting because i’ve wanted it from the beginning of the year! i got it the gold color because i think it’s elegant and chic and pretty!!

Image

One day, me, my mom, my sisters, my cousin, and two of aunts went to have a breakfast at a Caf√© / restaurant called Nola’s Market, the best breakfast i’ve ever had in life! it wasn’t so early it was around 10 am probably.

Image

and since so many people in the family have graduated we planned a little/ not-so-little party for the graduates (i was one of them) but it was mainly for my uncle he graduated from college.. two of my eldest sister actually made all the decorations for the party and decorated it themselves, it’s beautifully simple!

as for the food we ordered some burgers from a diner near by and we had fries, couple of pastries and a pasta, and a delicious dessert.. the best thing about it that it was fun and simple and genuine and intimate, and with the people i love!

Sorry for the photo quality, it was taken by an iPhone.

Around June 16th it was my sister’s husband’s birthday, and she did a simple and slightly romantic decoration at the guest room, and i took advantage of that to experiment with my photography skills (well, not really “skills” but it was beautiful and thought about taking pics and sharing them) and believe me, it took me ages to try and take a good shot of them, but i liked how they turned out to be!

Image

Image

one thing i know from the beginning of June.. is that i’ve had a new obsession with hands and nail polish, i’ve loved how they look, i started to think about wearing them all the time!! normally, i don’t wear nail polish because 1) i’m always late. 2) i’m super busy.

but i’ve been loving them like crazy! and as much as i love long nails and think they’re attractive, as much as i’m TERRIBLE at growing them!! they look long and beautiful for week, the next week BAM broken!! but hey! short nails look polished and clean!!

Image

Special Thanks to my sister for taking this picture of my hand ūüôā

and i’ve never been a hand cream person (until June, obviously!) so, i didn’t like to splurge on hand cream (if you’re a hand cream person, splurge! totally worth it *thumbs up*) i found this hand cream in my mom’s drawer and i thought taking (and i took it!)

definitely amazing, it hydrates, absorbes really fast, and make your hand soft like buttah!! it’s the Jergens Hand & Cuticle cream.

and i quickly wanted to post some of my favorite nail polishes, if you want to know the names, please comment!

My very eldest sister is married and live in another city, so last week we went to visit her and stayed at her place for almost a week, and the second day after we arrived, her neighbor invited us to dinner at her apartment (such a sweet women!) and it was amazingly decorated.. and of course the food was great, a good variety of food, the place was beautiful and fancy looking, it was such a joy!!

and here’s a photo taken with my phone of the place were we had our (so good!!) dinner..

Image

last summer i bought the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue perfume because i read at an article that Megan Fox likes it.. YES!!

and i loved it so much! it smells sporty, fresh, summer-y!! and i have finally sprayed the last drop of it! good thing that i already bought a perfume back in March when i went to Kuwait! because i didn’t have time to go to the mall anytime sooner!and i got the Betsy Johnson Too Too.. i LOVE it!! it smells girly, and beautiful! the packaging is EVERYTHING!!! and i actually never thought that i will ever get it! it’s like an impossible dream came true!! see? Life is full of surprises!!

The Secret For A Healthy, Shiny Hair!

Image

 

Ever since school was over, I was thinking that I should take a really good care of hair, since I’ve been¬†using heat on it almost every week in school days. And I noticed such a huge damage happened in my hair.. and I was really depressed, but hey! I am a¬†girl¬†who feels good when she looks good, my mood depends on my hair!!

My mom always told me to use oil on it before I head into the shower, and believe me, when around school days I didn’t have time to use it on my hair, but since it’s summer and I don’t go out as much, I use on my hair every time I shampoo my hair (which is twice a week since I have dry hair). I mix a couple on oils and apply it on my hair and massage it in, letting it sink in and nourish my hair for approximately one hour. And the best thing about it, that it’s all natural!

 

ImageImageImageIt contains:

Coconut Oil: shields the hair with protein, seals in moisture, improves the blood circulation, and much more..

Olive Oil:known as a natural hair conditioner, promotes scalp health.

Argan Oil: it works amazing for treating damaged and dry hair, and adds shine.

Thank you for reading, i really appreciate it.

And sorry i didn’t post for a long time..

Body Lotions+Beautifying oils

Image

When I first got the beautifying oil..¬†I was only using it for my hair to make it¬†smooth and shiny and also add a beautiful scent to it, and it did what my heart (& my hair) desired. but, it wasn’t as long lasting as I hoped it will be.. and¬†I stopped using it for a while.

I have a lot of lotions, most of the are perfumed and I have a couple that are not meant to go with specific perfume… those are¬†what I use for everyday when I don’t have a special occasion (I use the perfumed one on special occasion if you¬†didn’t notice).¬†and I had this Idea (well, it’s not my own idea, i’m sure someone did it before me) I mix my “everyday lotion” with the beautifying oil for a¬†yummy scent and for some¬†added¬†glow and hydration..¬†add¬†some lotion (as much as you desire) and add the same amount of the¬†oil and mix them together for¬†a nice smelling+ extra hydration+ slight glow.. you can also use for your cuticles.
