Modeling for a Very Cool Egyptian Brand

I had so much fun doing this photo session and model for such a beautiful rising brand in Egypt as Chevron ๐ŸŒˆ and wear their amazing creations โค

That was my 3rd modeling photoshoot, I had one after it and I’m about to do another one very soon, and I must say I loooove it, I love modeling โค 

Beautiful girls (designers) creating beautiful and very unique designs for women, and I mean imagine wearing an ice cream or a flamingo or even a hot air ballon ๐Ÿญ wouldn’t that be fun ๐ŸŒˆ huh! 

I’m also so thrilled to see so many Egyptian fashion designers and happy to even be friends with some of them.

See the colorful creations below  ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป

You won’t Believe How Much my Ramadan’s Abaya Cost me!

Before Ramadan I was planning on buying a modern abaya or tailoring one, and told my mom that. What I didn’t expect was that she would hand me a very beautiful fabric with a very rich color combination (Gold & Black) what more could I ask for?!

I was stunned and I immediately pictured that fabric turning into an abaya, and the picture was beautiful โค it turned out that this fabric belonged to my grandma (may she rest in peace).

My next move was to find a very good tailor and I found one my friend was dealing with for a long time and said that he is great. So, I went and showed him a picture of what I want my abaya to look like, it was a simple design and that is what I wanted.

I received my abaya and was extremely happy with it โคโค It cost me only 120 L.E

Fancy huh!
 

Yup, that’s right! 120 L.E. 

Yes, I bet the fabric was expensive but, still it didn’t cost me anything in comparison to what I would have spent on an abaya in Ramadan if I had decided to buy one, because some of them cost 600 to 900 to buy one!! Which to me is a bit extreme giving that I’ll wear it only on few occasions!

On a final note, I just want to share with you how much I love the modern abaya trend and how cool the designs I’ve seen till now.  I think the abaya and kaftan trend will stay for a while.

How do I Keep my Natural Curls Hydrated in the Hot Weather

So summer came faster than it should! But hey, if you’re prepared for it, you’re gonna be fine.
I’ve established a routine for my hair to keep it under control in any weather. And to me, the summer season makes my hair looks ver very I MEAN VERY different with a very dry-frizzy texture.
To avoid this texture I always have with me a spray bottle filled with water and a spoon of my leave in conditioner (if you don’t have leave in conditioner you can use your pre-shampoo conditioner), and I just shake bottle so the conditioner and the water combine together well!


Old spray bottle 


My leave-in conditioner
Then whenever is needed, I spray some on my hair avoiding my roots. So you only spray from your ears and go down the ends. You want to just moisture the part that gets really dry and frizzy.
I hope this trick helps you and change your life ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป try it out and share your experience โค

Current Favorites for Spring/ Summer 2017

I prepared for the spring/summer season with few pieces as a start.
So, I started by buying sandals from forever21 from an open day that was held by Edfa3ly, maybe two months ago! They were only 150 LE!! absolute steel! YAY


And you can’t start this season without buying killer shades! I bought mine from Aldo Shoes store in City Stars Mall, check their accessories section. I got it for.. hold your breath.. for 140 LE. WHAAAT!! Yes! And they’re green mirrored sunglasses. LOVE THEM.


My sister went to H&M store in City Stars Mall in Heliopolis, and bought beautiful tasseled earrings for 25 LE, they were on sale down from 200 LE.. you should always check H&M’s accessories section on the sale period, you will find amazing pieces with good prices that you will later appreciate them.


Last but not least my Raymond Weil classic watch, I wear it all the time. I can easily describe it with three words; classy, empowering and timeless piece. Love it โค

Our Winter Body Care Essentials | Products Review

All girls have their own body care essentials and routine for the Winter season. And this is ours:

 
1- Vaseline (Blue Seal)
With a nice smell, this Vaseline is an essential product in every girl’s drawer.

 
2- Dove body lotion
The smell is nice but it’s okay, not impressed!

 
3- Vaseline intensive care (Cocoa Butter)
Now we’re talking! Been using this lotion for over 3 years now Amaziiiing ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

 
4- Parkvill soap
I used tons of soap for my face and this is by far the best one. However, this soap was prescribedย by a dermatologist. So, before you rush to the pharmacy to buy it, first see a dermatologist.

 
5- Bath & Body Works face scrub
This face scrub combines naturally exfoliating crushed Apricot Seeds and antioxidant White Tea. It does revive the dull skin and leaves it very smooth. Smells wonderful!

 
6- L’OREAL HYDRA-TOTAL 5 Nuit
I use this night cream in the morning!! Shocking, I know. But I read once that the night cream is usually heavier than the morning one. And it’s advised to apply thick cream in the morning to be against the sun.

So, I’ve been using this cream for over 5 years now, and it’s perfect for me.

 
7- Mason Natural Collagen Cream
I’ve been using this cream at night to have the best results when I wake up. It’s good and smells nice. It’s a little bit thick but the skin absorbs it very quickly.

 
8- Blistex LIP MEDEX
This is a Winter essential indeed! Because it helps protect the lips from the drying that happens during the cold and windy weather.
