Will I am writing a blog about fashion, I just thought its right to add my personal and inspired styles!

Veranda Luxury Resturant by Harvey Nichols

When it comes to food, the fresher the better. I am right? True cuisines can be rare in our fast growing world where everything is mass produced. Fruits and vegetables come in seasons, but now it become easy to produce that all year round. This doesn’t mean it’s always fresh and organic. On the other hand, this mass production has decreased the world from hunger. That is why now leave in an age where FINE foods come in HIGH prices and can only be found in the most EXTRAORDINARY places. One of those places is Veranda.

Veranda is a new luxury dining restaurant that is established by M.H. Alshaya Company for Harvey Nichols Kuwait. Veranda is the new HAUTE restaurant; GLAMROUS fashion with indulgence food under one roof is every fashion and food lover’s DREAM! The concept of the food is based around Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine and the rich teats of Asia. Now this is what I call HAVEN on earth.

On the 10th of March (Yesterday) Veranda invited bloggers to taste the food and experiences the atmosphere of the dining area. Below you will find pictures that will indulge you.

My brothet and I

My brothet and I

The dress code was Smart Casual, seeing a picture of the restaurant I wanted to keep it elegant as well. You can see in the middle picture you can see my brother and I. I took my brother with me because him and I have different taste in food. So I thought it would be nice to share a meal with someone that different opinion in what foods they like and dislike.I will be sharing both fashion looks.

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Black puffy skirt: H&M
  • Black sleeved top with bronze cuffs: Dorothy Perkins from the KKollection
  • Black heels with gold details: New Look
  • Brown and beige clutch: Prada

What my brother is wearing:

  • Turquoise pullover: Zara
  • White polo shirt: Ralph Lauran
  • Jeans: Diesel
  • Black with red details: Converse

 

It was a Bloggers Evening, they had a whole menu set for us. After the cocktails were handed to us they offered us fresh basket bread with organic butter. Then they set us of with “First Bites” (that was for sharing with the people your with) there were five different dishes. Then we had our “Starts” and each of us had two starts. We were then presented with two SPECTACULAR “Main-Courses”. Finally Veranda pleased our sweet tooth’s with two different “Desserts”.

 

Welcoming Drinks

Welcoming Drinks

As we walked in the restaurant they had welcoming drinks for us. They offered to kinds of cocktails; one was a pomegranate cocktail with lots of ice. The second one (the one top) was a mixture of really fresh mangos, strawberries and YUMMY passion fruit. I had both drink and they were EXTREMLY good. ❤

 

FIRST BITES

Crostini

Crostini

The bread that came with this dish was made in house. The whole dish was fresh! The crostini came with mozzarella that was lightly melted on it with grilled to perfection cherry tomatoes and dazzled with balsamic. This yummy dish contained some of my favourite ingredients put together. I always loved Crostini’s, but this one you could taste the freshness. You bite into the Crostini you can’t tell that the bread left was baked that morning and kept warm for until preparing the dish for customers. This is a dish you must try.

King Prawn Tempura

King Prawn Tempura

I rarely have gone into a restaurant that offers fried shrimps (prawns) that I didn’t like. Though there are restaurants that offer fried prawns that are better than other dining places. So here we are at one of those restaurants Veranda that offer one of the most delicious fried prawns my taste buds have even meet. What made this dish very adequate was the dip it came with, mayonnaise with saffron, lime and chives. To make matters even better the mayonnaise is organic and made at the restaurant. This was a dream set in on my taste buds.

Homemade Hummus

Homemade Hummus

To me hummus is one of those dishes that you can have at any time of the day without feeling guilty. I am a huge hummus fan, it’s one of those types of dishes that aren’t very hard to make. What makes hummus different from one place to another is its presentation and what’s offered with it. Here the hummus has been laid on top some yellow vibrant roasted baby bell peppers. I really don’t like roasted bell peppers. I usually eat them only when they are raw in a sandwich or in a salad. I like how the setting of the hummus wasn’t boring and very pleasing to the eyes with the colours. When I took the bite of the hummus with the roasted bell pepper it a match made in heaven.

Aubergine Moutabal

Aubergine Moutabal

Now moutabal is harder to prepare the hummus. If made right it would be marvels experience to enjoy, if not made right it can be quite bitter and not very pleasing. I am one that doesn’t like eggplants no matter what. They never applied to me and I never found them to taste good. The only time I would ever eat an eggplant is when it’s in moutabal form with other ingredients it gives the eggplant a taste that I find satisfying. Here I didn’t really like the moutabla. Out of five starts I personally would give it two. However my brother enjoyed the bitterness and said it was the best moutabla he has had!

Duck Spring Rolls

Duck Spring Rolls

I am going to say it right up front, this was an EXPLOSION in my mouth. When you go there YOU HAVE to order this. It’s the most spectacular dish I have tried. Now this is what we can all came come together and agree that this is the piece of diamond that our appetite deserve. If you love yourself then you should go after this crispy duck, which you can dip into a sauce that is made from pomegranate and spicy tomato chutney. Need I say more?

 

STARTERS

Salmon

Salmon

With all the benefits that a Salmon has and with so many people loving the fish, sadly I am not the kind of person that would ever order Salmon. I’ve tried cooked and prepared in so many different ways and I never really liked it. So it wasn’t that this dish wasn’t nice, when it comes to salmon I am biased and I know I wouldn’t like it. Nonetheless, my brother loved this dish and said it was his favourite! The Scottish salmon has been aniseed cured (it was cold cooked), with cherry-oak smoked that you can taste in the salmon and gave it its twist and apple fennel salad. For one thing I did enjoy the salad.

Canadian Lobster Ravioli

Canadian Lobster Ravioli

Yet again when it comes to pasta I am lover, and when it comes to lobster I am a grabber. The way this dish was prepared is that the sauce light bisque was made with the water in which the lobster was boiled in. What I loved about this dish is that there weren’t many ingredients that overwhelmed the taste of the lobster. The thickness of the sauce was just right, it wasn’t too heavy nor was it to light. If you’re a lobster then this dish is definitely for you!

 

MAIN-COURSES

Hammour Medallions and Salsa

Hammour Medallions and Salsa

Another fish dish and yes I am a sea food lover (just no salmon). This fish came with crusted nuts, fennel and apricot salsa and jallab sauce. Now tell me doesn’t sound yummy and applying? If not you have to go and check it out yourself and be the judge. The nuts in this dish gave it the right structure and feeling. How crunchy the nuts where came right with the soft delicate fish.

Josper Baked Lamb Moussaka

Josper Baked Lamb Moussaka

The way this lamb has been cooked is truly unique. To actually make this lamb it takes 5 hours to prepare and have it ready. Even though this lamb took 5 hours to be ready when it arrived at our table it was fresh as ever. You would have thought that it was cooked right at the spot. The lamb has been baked in a Jasper oven, an oven that requires only the experience chefs to know how to use it. Inside the lamb you’d find melted goat chess that makes the taste buds go wild. I just love the how the sourness of chess mixes with the sweetness of the tomato sauce. If you want something new go for this delightful lamb.

 

DESERTS

Pineapple & Raspberry Mille-Feuille

Pineapple & Raspberry Mille-Feuille

After tarts my second favourite dessert is mille-feuille. When the ingredients are super fresh and crispy you know you are in for an amazing treat. That’s what happened I was at love form first bite and yes love was in the room when this little dessert came in and right into our table. The other best part about this dessert is that it came with raspberries, now I haven’t met anyone that didn’t like them. They were super soft and juicy just right with the creamy free vanilla cream and the crunchiness of the biscuits. YES they used a special kind of biscuit on the mille-feuille then the traditional puff-pastry. GO TRY IT!

Mini Chocolate Mousse

The chocolate mousse came with black cherry coulis that was really sweet and took over my sweet tooth. The side to this mousse is that with the ingredients there is a hint of ginger to give the ultimate experience and help blend in all the flavours. If you’re not a ginger fan don’t worry. The taste of the ginger is very mild and just a hint. When you have dessert you will know why I will keep telling you it’s the best chocolate mousse.

FABULOUS FREES from Style Boutique! My Makeup Look for the Grand Opening

A few days ago I wrote about Style Boutique and there Grand Opening (click here). The store was so adorable and cute and they had so many FABULOUS things, I was one of the lucky ones to have received free things! 😀

I even mentioned that I would share my makeup look that I wore that day. I like to call this look a VAMPY look just because of the harsh winged eyeliner with dark berry lips.  First I will show you how I achieved my makeup look then I will go on and show you all the GLAMROUS things I was given. Below you’ll find the pictures so keep on reading…

 

The Vampy Makeup Look:

photo (151)

Vampy I’d say

To get this look I used two eye-shadow pallets, the first one was the Too Faced “Matte Eye Shadow Collection” and the second one is the “Naked 2” Urban Decay pallet. I will go to explain the colours that I used and which brushed I used to apply them. First let me show you the pallets…

Too Faced Matte Eye Shadows pallet

The colours from top to bottom (left to right):

  • Tufted Suede (used it)
  • Chinchilla (used it)
  • Coffee Bean
  • Velveteen Bunny (used it)
  • Pebbles
  • London Fog
  • Fresh Linen
  • Vintage Violet
  • Midnight

The “Naked 2” pallet from Urban Decay has 12 colours, and out of those 12 I’ve used 3 colours for this look. In the picture bellow you will be able to see the swatch colours.

The Naked 2 pallet and the swatches below

The swatches from left to right:

  • Snakebite
  • Half baked
  • Foxy

 

For this look I used one of my favorite lipsticks that I tend to use for special or GLAMROUS occasions, and the Grand Opening of Style Boutique is a GLAMROUS EVENT.  That is why I had to take out my secret weapon MAC lipstick “What Joy!” satin finish. Sadly this colour was part of their Winter2012 limited edition line, luckily if you like this colour MAC had a lipstick called “Diva” that in their permit line that is close to it.

What Joy! lipstick from MAC

What Joy! lipstick from MAC

I just love the berryness (I know that isn’t a word) of this lipstick and it goes great with all skin tones!

I only applied bronzer to my face using MAC “Raizin” blush in matte finish. I didn’t use any pinks or peaches on the apples of my cheeks because the lipstick did the job and brought the colours out of my cheeks.

How to apply this makeup look:

  1. From the Too Faced pallet apply the colour Chinchilla all over your eyelids til your crease using the Sephora “all over shadow brush
  2. Just to the crease apply Coffee Bean from the Too Faced pallete and blend it out wards and lower lashes using the MAC 224 brush
  3. Using the MAC brush 217 apply Velveteen Bunny from the Too Faced pallet on to your brow bones
  4. Where the eye-shadows Chinchilla and Coffee Bean blend in Snakebite with the MAC 217 brush
  5. Right under your eyebrows apply Foxy from the Naked 2 pallet using the MAC  219 pencial brush
  6. With the same brush apply Half Baked to the inner corners of the eyes
  7. Then I applied my foundation, conceler and presspowder
  8. After that I applied the MAC blush Raizin to my cheek bones and softly blended it into the apples of my cheeks and forehead using Mikyajy Blusher Brush
  9. Lastly I applied the lipstick What Joy! on to my lips

 

Now lets us go to my second part of this blog post, the FABULOUS things that I got from Style Boutique. They are lovely and to die for, plus you have to go and check out their collection or you’ll be missing what’s new in fashion that’s FUN-FRESH and EDGY.

I LOVE this top and the details that is on the bottom. It’s so CUTE you can either dress it up or dress it down. Here I decided I was going to dress down because it was the morning and I was off to university. I wanted to keep it fun with and edgy which results it to be FUNKY! This is something totally new for me, but hey I am young I can do fashion “mistakes” and get away with it. 😀

Sneak peek ;D

The so AMAZING shopping on top and just the the FABULOUS items on the botoom! ❤

The Top!

The Top!

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Top: Style Boutique
  • Balck under-top: Zara
  • Dark blue jeans: H&M
  • Shoes: Nike
  • Purple bag: Miu Miu

 

Valentine’s Day came and I wanted to wear something different. I didn’t want to wear any reds, pinks or whites I wanted to go on a different track. That is when I felt the need to go and be FABULOUS for this LOVE day and have fun and dress in the way that I love. After all I am a fashion lover so more than any other day I HAD TO show it on this day. How better to show my love for fashion than wearing this GLAMROUS gold and black blazer that was long at the back that has black chiffon. It was perfect! To check out more about my V-Day click here.

The GLAM Look

The GLAM Look

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Gold and black blazer: From Style Boutique
  • Black pants: H&M
  • Black top: Zara
  • Scarf: Zara
  • Black flats: Chanel

 

I had to go early into school because I had some things to do before I went into my class that morning. I just had so much to print out. The problem was that I didn’t have time to pick out what I wanted to wear the night before! So when I woke up that morning I was all over the place trying to get ready, I knew I wanted to wear my flats from Style Boutique but I wasn’t sure with what. Then I told myself my safest bet would be that I wear jeans because they mostly go with everything. At this point I would like to believe that I was right. 😀

My LOVELY shoes <3

Fashiom is art, and just like art all that it need is talent and taste. We might not agree but there are some basic ground rules.

Today’s FAB Makeup Looks <3

Makeup, clothes, bags and SHOES what can I say I am a madly and deeply IN LOVE with fashion. Fashion now falls under a lot of things, that incudes FOOD the way furnish your house and even the books you read (if you know me back in high school…then you know I was a BOOK WARM). Yes I said it books, books come in and go out of fashion but literature remains. Just like in fashion, fashion might come and go but style is forever! ❤

For the upcoming blog posts (the next 3 or 4) will be mostly about makeup. I will be showing and talking about how I applied the makeup and review some of them. Will let me tell you a little secret I LOVE MAKEUP as much as SHOES! That coming me from me is a HUGE thing. So promise me that is will be between you and I. :p

The Pink Carpet has been Laid! Style Boutique Grand Opening, Kuwait

I’ve been saying this from some time now, and bet some of you out there have been saying it too…Kuwait is becoming another destination for the fashion world. Now Kuwait is going to be another fashion centre. I hope that sooner or later we get to have “Kuwait Fashion Week”, oh that would be SUPER AWESOME. Anyway last week I got an invitation for a small boutique that’s called “Style Boutique”, they already have two other locations in Kuwait this was going to be third.

Style Boutique is a store that brings clothes from China, Turkey and the UK, and all the clothes that they bring is SUPER FABOLOUS! They don’t only have clothes, but even bring in accessories and shoes. All the products are great quality and the two Kuwaiti store owners have AMAZING TASTE! When I received my invitation a week ago and I was SO ECXITED! I couldn’t wait to see what they will bring. I have been to the other two stores so I know this would not go under anything than MARVELOUS. ❤

The invitations to the opening

The invitations to the opening

Above you can see the CUTE invitations that the owners of Style Boutique gave out. I loved the pink small dress; it fit perfectly within their theme.
The flowers were a great idea after all flowers and floral are very in this Spring. Another thing that came with invitations was so YUMMY chocolate that was too good to be true! When I saw the invitation I knew this was going to be an event to remember.

 On my way to the Grand Opening!

On my way to the Grand Opening!

The trouble of being a student, blogger, makeup guru and a fashion lover can never have an end. I just came back from university and went home to get a quick shower. After that I had to apply my makeup and figure out what to wear. Sadly I didn’t have time to do anything with my hair so I left it ALL NATURA. 😀 If you want me to post how to get this makeup look let me know in the comments or email me. I was SUPER excited and couldn’t wait to get there an meet the FABOLOUS owners and see the NEW STYLISH store.

When I got there they had their famous PINK CARPET laid out for their guests. Now that is one of the MOST CUTEST things I have ever seen. So girly, so cute and so beyond GLAMOUR!

The Pink Carpet <3

The Pink Carpet ❤

All around the entrance they had BEAUTIFUL flowers and candles that went perfectly with the spring breeze. The adorable thing they did was give out tea and coffee in old Kuwaiti style. Sorry I didn’t take any pictures of that. I loved the simplicity yet elegance of the decor for the event, it was perfect for the store and blended in very well. The event planner was “3 Pieces of Mind”. Below the picture you will find there contact information. It is worth it to CHECK them out!

Valentine’s Day Look and More <3

Today is Valentine’s Day, the day of love and where people show their love and affection to each other. If you follow me on Twitter, you’d see that one of the reasons why I love this holiday, is because I believe this is the day where the world units to show LOVE! Sadly today I had classes from 11am to 5pm so and I was awake by 6am, when I got home I was very sleepy and didn’t feel like doing much. That is what I call life of a student/makeup guru/fashion lover. How I manage to put things together is beyond me! :p On the other hand, I love what I do and I can’t see myself not doing it.

So let’s go to the good V-Day stuff! First I will show you a makeup look that I created earlier this week for Valentine’s Day. Although I didn’t wear it today because I thought it wouldn’t look great with my outfit.

My soft V-Day Look

My soft

How to achieve this look with the Urban DecayNaked palette:

  1. Apply Buck all over the eyelids
  2. Toasted should go at the outer corner and wing the eyeshadow, and bring it up to your crease 3/4 of the way
  3. To your brow bones apply Virgin
  4. Then apply Buck on your lower lashes and Sin in your inner corner
  5. Instead of using liquid eyeliner I used MAC Carbon eye-shadow as eyeliner using the MAC 214 brush For blush used Raizin by MAC for countering, my checks, nose and forehead. On the apples of my checks I applied Fleure Power.
  6.  Lipstick I used Brave by MAC.

I really like the softness of this look. It isn’t to heavy for the morning at its great for the evening. If you’d like you can apply darker or liquid eyeliner for the evening to make it more dramatic. Or you can have a bolder lip instead for the evening, something red or berry.

 

After some debate on Instgram and getting emails, some girls wanted me to create a nail look. I agreed but I said no reds or pinks, so then we came to an agreement that I’d go with PURPLE!

Purple is mum's favourite colour

I’m not going to lie it wasn’t the most perfect thing. I was late night and I was super sleepy :p . This was the best it was going to get that day. Anyway I hope you liked it! 😀

 

On Valentine’s Day some of us are a quite lucky to have a valentine to celebrate the love. Guess what I was one of those LUCKY people! I got to spend this “special” day with someone that I’ve known since I was 8 years old. We have been through everything together and know every detail of one another. Somone I would love to show the world to. Just PLEASE don’t try to STEAL him!

I persent to you…..

This is my stuffed animal snake "Slimy" <3

It isn’t as sad as you might think :p we had a BLAST! Yes I do have real friends if any of you are wondering 😀

 

Okay enough with the jokes and lets go to what I was wearing today. The OUTFIT for Valentine’s Day, what I wore and who I wore. There wasn’t much red, it was a bit edgy. Yet still it was FUN and something that was totaly different. As I was telling my friend today it isn’t a “CUTE” dress, or a “CUTE” top, it’s something FABULOUS! ❤

My V-Day look, and no I didn\t take the teddy with me :p

The Weekdays/Uni Looks

So this week I have been extremely BUSY that I didn’t have much time to come on my laptop and blog (I don’t like blogging from my phone :P). I’m so sorry if I’ve kept you waiting for my posts. Well here I am and I would LOVE to share with you my looks for this past week. All of these looks are showing you how I “normally” dress to university usually. During the winter months I like to play around and experiment with clothes more than I can do in the summer. Here in Kuwait it can get really hot and all I would want to wear is a dress or something to keep me cool. On the other hand, I still want to look my best and FASNIONABLE as much as I can!

 

Lady in Purple

I feel in love with purple dress the moment I laid eyes on it. Lately it seems I’ve been loving the colour purple on me :p (still green is my favourite colour!). To tell you the truth, as I was growing up I thought I will always dress formally, you know how business women dress and “classy women”. So for some odd reason, this look made me feel that this is the real me. This look made me feel like the “writer” and “politics lover” come out. When my brother saw me in this look he said “you look like a politician’s wife”. However, I love this look. ❤

Okay the pictures aren't very "lady" like :p lol

Okay the pictures aren’t very “lady” like :p

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Purple-wool dress: Cos
  • Grey scarf: Pull and Bear
  • Recycled Necklace: made from bike chains (from a flea market in Italy)
  • Black stockings: H&M
  • Bag: Chanel
  • Black leather boots: Russell and Bromley

 

 

Biker Chic

I’ve only worn these pleather pants once, so I wanted to wear them again. Though this time it was more of an edger look then the last look (press the link to see it). My mum keeps reminding me that I am young and to have fun with styles and fashion. When I was in middle school I wasn’t the kind of girl that was starting her hair and wearing lip-gloss, that all happened when I was in year 10 (10th grade) where I became more aware of fashion and all. For some reason this takes me bake to my hippie days. Hahaha I don’t know what a Bicker and a Hippie have in common, do you??

All is left is my bike, no I don't have one!

All is left is my bike, no I don’t have one!

 

  • Jeans vest: Zara
  • Dark grey top: H&M
  • Blue and green Shahtoosh shawl
  • Hoop earring: Forever21
  • Burgundy-pleather pants: H&M
  • Black leather flat: LV

 

Electric WOW

My mum got me this blue top, and I just loved the colour and martial. On the back it’s a T-shirt and in the front of the top it’s silk. Another thing I love about this top that it’s longer at the back and shorter at the front. Though that I was feeling quite sick, I guess you see it through the picture. I still tried looking my best! To tell you the truth now that I look at this picture I don’t really like how I put myself together.  Like: I love the top, earrings and the shoes, but I feel there is something wrong. Do you think so? I think it’s the scarf perhaps.

BLUE! BLUE! BLUE

BLUE! BLUE! BLUE

 

  • Grey long-sleeved top: Zara
  • Electric-blue top: Mango
  • Black pants: Forever21
  • Black high-tops: Buffala
  • Black Shahtoosh shawl
  • Angle-wing earrings: Alexander Wang

 

Rocker Swagy

I first called this look “Sporty Rocker Chic”, because I was wearing my Nikes :p. Then one of my followers on Instgram mentioned that there was nothing sporty about it, that it was more “Swagy” and “Kewl”. I never really have used wither words, but “Swagy” did catch my eye and I was like “HEY THAT’S WANT I’LL CALL THE LOOK!” there you go the name was born. Some pointed out the shoes don’t match, I think it did. It brought a whole new thing to the look. What do you think?

the wind was blowing <3

the wind was blowing ❤

 

  • Black leather jacket: H&M
  • Yellow and olive leopard-print scarf: Zara
  • Olive and black striped top: Zara
  • Dark blue skinny-jeans: H&M
  • Crystal studs: Claire’s
  • Grey and purple high-tops: Nike

Weekend Chalet Looks

It’s been months since I’ve been to my family’s chalet! Still I was quite sick and wasn’t able to enjoy my time and the weather as much as I hoped. Nonetheless it was a change of paste for me, and time away from my BED :P. Now that winter has come to Kuwait, the sea and the desert is much colder than it is the city area. Which lead to the fact that I needed to cover up as much as I could so I don’t get sicker. At the same time I didn’t want to layer myself with clothes and then feel hot and sweaty, SO I kept it moderate.

KK Kollection at Dorthy Perkins Kuwait

The past week the Kim Kardashion Kollection came to Kuwait, not only that but even Kim herself was here! Sadly I didn’t have the chance to meet her or even see her. HOWEVER, I was able to go to Dorothy Perkins and get a look at and get what I wanted from the collection. The night before the line was lunched, I went the online store of Dorothy Perkins to see what I liked and plan on getting them. My mum woke me up at 6am so that we can go drop of my brothers to school then go to the Avenues (it’s a mall in Kuwait). We arrived at the mall just 30 minutes before the doors where open, the doors opened at 8am and all of us went running inside to get or hand on the FABOULSE pieces! ❤

At the mall with KK behind me with my FABOULSE purchases!

After done with shopping I had to get a picture with this SWEET background that was designed for the lunch of KK Kollection. Though I have to say I wish I took this picture at night it would have looked better :p.

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Oversized navy top: Mark and Spencer
  • Long-sleeved top: Zara
  • Nude-fishnet leggings: H&M from their Maison Martin Margiela
  • Knee-high boots: Forever21
  • Black bag: Chanel

.

When I got home I had to take silly pictures with the bags. If I didn’t then I JUST WON’T BE ME! 😛 I a made my brother take these pictures as I was  GOOFING around the house!! Here is one that I would like to share with all of you.

My face is all like "SEE WHAT I GOT!" :p  lol

My face is all like “SEE WHAT I GOT!” :p lol

From the Kim Kardashion Kollection I’ve bought 4 items. Although I had to try loads of things on to see what actually looked good and me and that I really liked. Plus I had to make sure that I didn’t over spend and stay with in my budget! I got 2 tops and 2 blazers, below you’ll be able to see them.

On the above the picture is the clothes I purchased.

  • Top left: Kardashian polka pot blazer
  • Top right: Kardashian smoke crop blazer
  • Bottom left: Kardashian leopard tee
  • Bottom right: Kardashian blue mesh top

I had to wear all of them but one. The one I didn’t still have the chance to wear is the “blue mesh top”, because I still didn’t have the right time or occasion to have worn it. When I do I’ll defiantly post pictures about it! 😀

Political-Stylish look

It was the day of our parliament elections her in Kuwait. Plus it was my FIRST TIME that I was able VOTE! I was super excited and I wanted to dress up for the occasion and give it my most PROFESSIONAL and STYLISH look. Okay it might not be very professional to wear knee-high boots, but HELL YAH IT’S STYLLISH! I’m very happy to mention that the person I voted for has WON, and yes it was a WOMAN! ❤

Time to talk politics!

Morning Rock Look

I had to do so much that day, go to school, pick up things for my vlog and go and congratulate the members of parliament that have WON! That day I met so many amazing people and had a great time. A LOT of pictures were taken that day! Though I can’t deny all the running around I did. That’s when I feel sick :(. I haven’t slept well that day and put my energy in so many things did drain me. On the other hand, I LOVE what I do, and with wanting to reach success on might suffer a little.

Early Winter Looks

These looks are from the past two weeks when winter was just about to start in Kuwait. I have been quite busy that I didn’t have much time to blog. It broke my heart to be away for this for such a long time :(. The GOOD news is, I just created a vlog channel on Youtube called LillyDoll. Right now I’ve only posted one video to create awareness for the month of Movemeber. To check out the video press this link “A Movember to Remember”. So I was busy getting things done for my vlog and trying to think what are the things that I would like to show and talk about. I hope that you enjoy my video and my upcoming videos :D.

Let me stop the rumbling! Now that I know what I want to do, I got everything sorted out, okay not everything but most things. So me let start telling you that so much will be coming your way! What I have to do is juggle school, my blog, vlog and my writings that I want to publish. I’ll pray that all goes well.

This year winter in Kuwait was a bit delayed than most years. The weather still didn’t get cold enough for us to wear “REAL” winter clothes. In the other hand it was cold enough to wear my favourite boots and pleather leggings :D. It did rain the past few days, but I didn’t go out so I sadly don’t have looks for those days :(. Anyway let me go on and show you my looks and please tell me which ones you liked BEST!

The Reception/Dinner Look

Last month my aunt had a reception, a small dinner party for her daughters because they have just came back from travel. It wasn’t a very formal thing, yet not casual at all. I wanted to dress in an elegant way but still have a trendy side to it. Although I don’t see myself as a person that takes risks in my clothes when I am invited for any kind of event, I like to stay classy. Then it came to this event, I wanted to try something new, thank to my mum that motivated me to wear this!

Wearing a puffy skirt with a lace top! One of my favorite looks ❤

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Green lace top: Zara
  • Navy-blue puffy skirt: H&M
  • Black lace tights: Mark and Spencer
  • Heels: YSL
  • Dangle crystal earrings: Swarovski
  • Small green bag: Gucci

 

The Formal-Casual Look

This is what you can call a Fall Look more than a Winter Look that was from a month ago. It was just a normal day of going to school with a lovely fall breeze in the air. I chose to keep my make-up looking very natural and so my hair <3. What do you think about my natural hair?? This was even the first day I wore my DKNY high-tops. They kind of did hurt my feet a first, but now that I got use to them, they are comfy as EVER. This is even the first time that I wore my Celine sunglasses, even though my mum got them for me last summer. I just didn’t know what to wear them with, so I guess there is a first time for everything :P. This look has so many first times. I did enjoy this look it was fun mixing so many styles together. I think it came out pretty nice, don’t you?

I don’t wear much stripped clothes, but this was FUN! 😀

In this picture I am wearing:

  • White and Navy-blue strip blazer: Zara
  • Purple under top: River Island
  • Dark jeans: H&M
  • Olive-green high-tops: DKNY
  • Gold necklace: Forever21
  • Burgundy bag: LV
  • Sunglass: Celine

 

The Rushed Casual Look

This was a fun day, not only was it the lunch H&M line Maison Martin Margiela but I even spent some quality time with my brother <3. We woke up at 6am to get ready to go to the closet mall to our house so we can go and check out H&M. First we went and had a quick breakfast at Starbucks, then we went running to H&M to wait in line. Luckily we were the 3rd group to enter the store :D. It was kind of crazy with us running around try to see what we liked, what we didn’t and what we wanted to get. I ended buying a few things from the collection, and YES I will post them SOON! It was such a LONG yet such a FUN day.

Running to H&M for their new line lunch 😀

In this picture I am wearing:

  •  Blue-floral scarf: American Eagle
  • Jeans top: Zara
  • Dark jeans: Dorothy Perkins
  • High-top sneakers: Nike
  • Beige bag: LV
  • Sunglass: Chanel

 

The BBQ Look

On the same day that I went to H&M for their lunch of their new collection, that night I was invited to my cousin’s place for a BBQ. It was a gathering of just us the girl cousins, it was a sweet gathering. So because I was dying to get these half-boots I HAD to wear them on that DAY. These half-boots are so comfortable, that I can walk for hours in them without complaining. That night it was quite cold and because we were setting outside we all stared rapping ourselves in blankets that my cousin was handing out. I somewhat felt like a Rocker, maybe it was because I was wearing black all over with a ripped jeans jacket :p.

BBQ with my cousins, what a lovely time ❤

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Black and gold skull scarf: Alexander McQueen
  • Light jeans jacket: New Look
  • Black top: Zara
  • Black leggings: Zara
  • Half-boots: H&M from their Maison Martin Margiela
  • Gold and white bracelets: Chanel

 

The Rocker-Chic Look

This is the 2nd time that I wore these half boots, I was going to university. These pants where new and I wanted to try them out. I loved how they looked and how they slimed down my legs! I felt so alive and fresh that day. The mixing of grey, black a sliver gave me such great empowerment and confidence I didn’t know I had. My makeup was left very simple that day, with just a bit of foundation, mascara, blush and a nude lip (no lipstick). Not only was this a day look that I left my makeup very simple, but I thought that the outfit was loud enough

I felt such a REBAL! I usually don’t dress like this :p

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Black blazer: Zara
  • Grey top: Mark and Spencer
  • Black and silver lace printed pants: Mark and Spencer
  • Sunglass: Chanel
  • Half-boots: H&M from their Maison Martin Margiela
  • Burgundy bag: LV
  • Long sliver key-necklace: Tiffany
  • Gold and white bracelets: Chanel

 

The Morning-Pleather Look

It became somewhat of a tradition that my mum, cousin and I go out for breakfast every weekend. Sometimes the breakfast would be at our house or we would go out. That day we went out to try a breakfast place called “The Breakfast Club” (I will blog about it soon). Their food was super YUMMY! Yet again these pants where new and I WANTED TO TRY THEM OUT :D! Plus even the shoes where new, one of my favourite aunts bought them for me from Germany. So I was like I should hit to birds with one stone, and I think it came out quite well. What do you think?? 😀

I love pleather! Specially during the winter time ❤

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Black scarf with silver beads: Zara
  • Grey Top: Zara
  • Burgundy pleather pants: H&M
  •  Burgundy bag: LV
  • Black high-tops: Buffala (my aunt got it for me from Germany)

 

So tell me what look do you like best and why? Please leave your comments down below and follow my blog. DON’T forget to watch my vlog LillyDoll and stuned for more videos coming your way. Please do suscribe to my blog and comment on the current (and only video) that I have uploaded.
