About Me

At the start of any class the teacher always asks the students to talk about themselves. It was never easy for me to describe myself, who I am, and what I liked. Don’t these things always change?

As for basic facts about me I am the girl next door, I live in Jumeirah (Dubai), an Emirati and proud to be. If my life was a long Indian movie I would be in the transmission period right now. I just finished school, got my double bachelor degree in International studies and  Public Relations and now studying Masters in PR (Travel & Tourism).  I am currently unemployed  a girl with a job ^^. As you can see I did not study fashion but I was always obsessed with it and the obsession led me to create a blog dedicated to fashion and all things fun!

    hi ………i want to know what do u think about make up ????????
    thank u

    • Latifa August 1, 2011 at 13:57 #

      I think if you apply it right and work with your face shape and features it will give a plus to your look, too much is always a no no .. I like it to be natural and simple and enhance your features rather than create new ones :p

    i like how you put things together…and my god how u ever walk in those heels @_@ u should have your own personal stylist services for people who have no fashion sense….and trust me many over do it….simplicity with a touch of color is class..i dont like the piccasso head to toe..puts me off and all things designer cause some stuff out there is much better than labels… :)

  49. No'3a October 28, 2011 at 13:57 #

    Hey there,
    Gonna be honest with you, I really envy you for having all these outstanding well-known brands staff thought you are queen B! (Emarati version)!!
    any ways just wanted to let you know that I like the way you present staff moreover I’m proud that you are not showing off lot of skin while taking pictures and that you are sticking to the abaya and shila..
    As for me I design hot couture but it’s all in paper, I know every little thing in my favorite designer collection and I would die to have them but I’m not rich, insallah I would have it all in janah ya rab,,
    So always thank god for what you have and don’t forget that he is the one who give and he is the one who take…
    Wish u all the luck…

    Hi! I just discovered your blog via mybirkinblog.blogspot.com. Now I’m obsessed with your blog too! Your collection of Birkins (esp the black croc), Louboutins and bling are to die for!
    I was in Dubai last year. I’m really impressed with the people’s warmth and how fashion forward you all are.
    Alrighty, looking forward to reading your blog and seeing (read: drooling over) more of your precious items.
    Have a good day ahead.

    Greetings from Canada! I’ve just spent the last 7 hours going through your blog and I’m hooked! I’ll probably spend another 7 hours tomorrow doing the same.
    I’m going to reiterate what others have said in the past: you are incredibly fashion forward and I envy your wardrobe! Modest and stylish simultaneously! It’s something we’re sorely lacking in North America. I look forward to the day when I will be able to visit UAE and do some serious shopping! From the pictures you’ve posted, it looks breathtaking. Keep up the good work!

    You have a very chic personal style and I admire what you have done with this blog. I also am passionate about fashion and would love to pursue it as a career (fashion stylist, creative director). I was always inclined to study in Paris but your blog has opened my eyes to Dubai as an emerging fashion centre. Do you know of any fashion universities in Dubai or have any recommendations? I would love to hear your opinion.
    Thank you,

    Well as i seen on the pictures …. U dont show ur face although ur name is full shown…second: u have all these bags what u want us to say oh wow u have bags …and as khaleeji lady for sure the only thing that u need to add as a touch of your own is bag ,shoes,accessories… So dont tell me that u are stylish just for picking up these things ! And the style show us what you wear without abaya then we will say that this is nice and elegant … Otherwise nothing here u add that benefit others !
    Thank you .
