Best Of 2011



2011: Probably one of the best years in my life so far. I remember the to-do list I wrote at the end of December 2010, most of my goals were about my blog which was only 4 months old at that time. Every time I read the list, I wouldn’t believe any of it would happen, but they did, 9/10 goals (from the blog) happened. My blog grew so much over the last year and it’s still growing and hopefully it will continue to grow even more every day. All the things that happened to me this year are thanks to my blog. The blog grew bigger every single day. 2011 was also an amazing year because: I graduated from high school, I went to Prom, I had an amazing birthday with the most amazing family I could ever ask for, I went to Doha to see my family friends, My sister graduated from University.  I went to Myfashdiary Sephora event, I met Tala Samman in person again, I went to different trips, I went to Inverness & London for the first time, I basically lived with my best friend in Italy (in Summer), I went out with friends almost every day in summer, Dubai became a magical place. I attended my first fashion shows, I blogged more than 500 times, my blog had its’ first birthday, I started my Fashion DEP foundation year in Dubai Campus at Heriot Watt University. I went to Britney Spears Concert in Abu Dhabi and saw Britney live for the first but not last time! I bought my Louis Vuitton Alma Vernis & my black Balenciaga, I bought my first & second blackberry. I got my iPhone back! J I bought my first Chanel & got an iPad.
I thank you, my lovely readers for all those hits I got this year. Between the first day I started my blog ( Saturday 18th September 2010) and today. I hope my blog continues to grow as much as it does today or even more.
Best thing of this year, I met my favourite Fashion Blogger, Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad! && for a last minute plan both Nick & Silvia (Nick's sister) came to DUBAI! (YAAAAAY)
I wish you an amazing start to the coming year 2012! Wishing you more happiness & Success from this day onwards.

Last Post For 2011



Last post I will write this year, sad but so excited about this coming year!
2012 is going to be another magical year! I hope you all agree with me. I can’t wait to share with you all the projects I’ve been working on for my blog & all the exciting things that will happen this year. I hope you guys keep reading my blog & make sure you tell your friends & family about it!

Favorite outfits in 2011


A post dedicated to all my favorite outfits in 2011.
Which one is your favorite? Do you like more than one?
Let me know what you think ;)

Nick & Silvia in Dubai!


Hello guys!
How are you all celebrating the last weekend for this year?
I spent my morning cleaning up my entire house because my sister’s boyfriend Nick & his little sister are coming to Dubai & staying with us obviously.
Here's a beautiful picture of them two!


I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEM BOTH!!!!

Last 2011 Outfit


Super short look of the day, most probably the last one this year (SHOCKED). You're probably going to see all my Alexander McQueen scarves a lot on the blog. I hope you like the super simple outfit.

I Met Chiara Ferragni ♥


Most exciting post of this year! I can't believe i'm writing this: I MET CHIARA from The Blonde Salad! Can you believe it?? She's kinda been my inspiration since the first time I read her blog. Since the first day, which was  (early) Summer 2010, everytime i read a post. . . it was kinda just a dream to meet her one day at Milano. I would have never thought of going to dinner with my favourite fashion blogger in Dubai!!!

Last night was amazing! My sister & I organized to bring out Chiara & Richi from ‘The Blonde Salad’! We met the awesome, beautiful & oh so tall Chiara Ferragni & her boyfriend Richi! She’s such a sweetheart; she’s such an interesting person to talk to even if you’ve never met her before. She’s so lovely & has such an amazing personality with the best sense of humor.

It was actually an amazing day, I spent my morning cleaning up and finishing my room, my afternoon at a friends house & my night (from dinner time) with Chiara & Richi!
What more could I have asked for??

Champagne Time!




Christmas Eve & Day spent with family, friends & loved ones eating loads and loads!
& finally, after dinner! CHAMPAGNE!

Family Christmas Dinner!




Our family Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve was actually fantastic, blasting Christmas songs while eating lots and lots of food, & a little bit too much wine ;)

My Sandy Christmas Day



My Christmas day was spent at the Burj Al Arab beach with some champagne and a few snacks before coming home for Christmas dinner.
Spending time with my family & my sister at the beach was beautiful.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas wherever you are in the world.

Time To Unwrap the Presents!

Time to unwrap the Christmas presents!

Woke up in the happiest mood I could ever be in. It’s Christmas Eve & the celebrations begin!


Spending the entire day cooking Christmas food, baking Christmas cookies, listening & dancing to Christmas Carrols and some lovely Christmas songs.

Merry Christmas Everyone! Celebrate Well!

My Christmas Decorations



It’s been a really good month so far, I’ve been so excited about everything that’s been happening. Moving houses was the best one until now. Celebrating Christmas in the new house is so exciting. Since we moved house, we only had the time to set up the Christmas and decorate the house on Wednesday 21st & Thursday 22nd December. The same day (on Thursday the 22nd ) I went to a party with friends that was really fun, we all danced like crazy.
The house looks amazing; it’s so big and spacious. The Christmas decorations make it even more special than it really is.
Like I told you in the previous posts, I haven’t had any time to take any pictures until today. So here, enjoy the pictures

All I Want For Christmas Is You....♥


I convinced my family, we're most likely getting 2 baby huskies! I CANNOT WAIT!

My Little Christmas Wish List

My Little Christmas Wish List isn’t as long as I thought it would be. I always write my Christmas list in the middle of the month of November but this year, things are different.
So what I wanted to talk to you about was that this year instead of having a really really long Christmas Wish List, I have a little one this time.
I usually have around 15 to 25 items on my list, this year I only have 5. 
What does your wish list look like?

My plans for Christmas Eve & Day


My plans for both Christmas Eve & Day are to spend all quality time with my family, to have special breakfasts, lunches & dinners, to watch old family movies (such as Home Alone 1 & 2) & to take a gazzilion pictures.

Christmas Spirit!



Hey Dolls! Are you all having great holidays? This year past by so fast, it's insane. December flew by! I can't believe it's the 22nd of December already!!!! 

Lost Dog In Jumeirah!

Please Help Me Find Cassidy!

Cassidy went missing on Friday night, 25/11/11, after getting hit by ongoing traffic. Lost in Jumeira 3. 

He is about 7 year’s old, male and probably in desperate need of a vet. He has been micro chipped and should have a black studded collar on him if found could you please contact me immediately. 

He is part of a family and extremely missed, any information of his whereabouts or sightings would be greatly appreciated.

Good Night Beautiful Dubai

I really felt like writing another good night post like this one, so i did. This is another post just to say Good Night. Now i'm off to watch another amazing episode of Desperate Housewives while sipping on my glass of milk, I love you Dubai! Speak to you tomorrow! 

Perfect Weather

I'm in love with the weather in Dubai these days, most of the days the temperature is around 20 to 25 degrees Celsius. It's amazing & last night (7th December) it was raining a lot. Man, I love this city.

National Day Celebrations

Happy 40th Birthday, UAE.


NATIONAL DAY CELEBRATION.
Friday 2nd December 2011.
A night I will never forget.
THANKS TO ONE OF MY BEST GUY FRIENDS I GOT TO CELEBRATE THE 40 YEARS OF THE UAE.
AN UNFORGETTABLE NIGHT WITH AMAZING FRIENDS.

La Gente Esta Muy Loca


National Day Celebrations in the car with a bunch of my local friends was absolutely unbelievable!

Holiday Inspirations


I love these photographs. They inspire me so much.

SMCCU


So here they are. A lot of the pictures we took on Thursday 1st of December at the 'Sheikh Mohammed Center for Cultural Understanding' ! I learnt so many beautiful things. A lot about Islam as well as the Arab culture. I was amazed and loved those hours so much. Everything I learnt was so interesting. I'm super happy I had this opportunity. Hope you guys like the pictures!

Now I really need to go shower, get ready and leave with some of my local friends to celebrate the U.A.E. National Day!

Happy National Day!

HAPPY 40 YEARS TO THE UAE!
One of the best countries i've been to! I love living in the UAE!
Dubai, you\re the best!

Just To Say Good Night

 

Tomorrow I will publish two very important posts. One for the big 40 & one telling you all about what I went to visit today. It's super interesting! 

In Love With My Boots!


So this is the outfit i chose to wear. First of all, if you guys haven't noticed, i'm in love with skinny jeans. I'm the type of person that will wear the jeans or these unbelievably comfortable heels until they rip apart (hopefully only the jeans will). I love to wear skinny jeans. I love to wear them with basically anything. Yesterday i chose to wear the skinny jeans with a long aqua colour shirt and the boots, which like I said are unbelievably comfortable and I could probably last an entire day because they're just amazing!

Hello December! =)

A new month already, and as the early morning air is wonderfully crisp, mid-afternoons are spent working in my study, mornings spent blogging and studying for these crazy exams.
These unbelievably beautiful sunny days drenched in the warmest light, and I have discovered a new found love for winter, so still and beautiful in this city. I feel like everyday the temperature gets better here in Dubai.

Goodbye November

I cannot believe this year is almost over. November has been a really great month. Full of magic and unbelievable days! Hope it was a really amazing month for you too!
Now it's goodbye November & Hello December!
Hope next month will be full of amazing surprises, fun memories & laughter!

Kate Moss Lipstick Collection | Rimmel London


How amazing is the Lipstick Collection Kate Moss launched for Rimmel London?
I'm in love with each and every colour. I want to own ALL of them!

Drop Dead


I can't get over this song.
My new obsession
Enjoy guys!!

Casual Day


Another week has gone by and i'm surrounded by my design books and studying for business. Like I told you in the previous posts, I've been busy working on my "Re-Design" project, once it's fully completed I will definatly show you what I've been doing.
Yesterday afternoon, after working on my design project for hours, I decided it was time for a small break and decided to take some outfit photos. So here is the outfit I chose; River Island skinny jeans, my new H&M wedges, my black Balenciaga, and a simple blue top bought in Glasgow this past summer, adding a simple black cardigan as to be honest, it wasn't too warm outside while I was shooting the pictures.
