26TH BIRTHDAY IN THE USA
TIS THE SEASON TO BUNDLE UP
One word: Sad.
Homesick hit me hard. It was very different from the rest of the small and big celebrations I’ve had in Dubai. I was on video call with my family on our way to lunch and I tried my best to hold my tears because the reality is, I miss them so much. But hey! Things just get better from here.
MY CURRENT FAVORITE FALL STYLE
Did you check the DMV weather lately? It says it’s gonna snow. Am I ready for that? definitely… not. I’m also having withdrawals from our NYC trip that ended 2 days ago and I just can’t stay at home. My body got used to walking and waking up early for 4 days that it craved for it right after we got back.
KATE SPADE BAG
We all know that fall came with a bang a few weeks ago and I’ve been shopping like crazy because hello, I grew up in the desert and a little wind chills hit not only my skin but also my internal organs. 😂
MY PINK SUEDE LEATHER SKIRT | #HOWTOTHRIFTSHOP
When I moved here to the USA, I left most of my bags in Dubai because it just wouldn't fit my luggage and I did not want to crease them. Some of them are worn out and have their battle scars from everyday use too. So I knew I wanted a new sturdy bag but I just couldn't find the right one until we went to the outlets 5 days ago and happen to pass by Kate Spade.
AUTUMN/WINTER OUTFIT FOR PETITE LADIES
I’ve never really been fascinated with high-waist skirts until recently. I didn't know that I can also be a perfect fall essential because of its leather. So here's another roundup of #HowToThriftShop. I got this pink suede leather skirt at the Sharaf Retail warehouse sale and it only costs AED 20. My semi high-neck cropped top sweater looked good with it, too.

The cold season is definitely making its way in this part of the world. Though it’s not super cold compared to other countries but hey, we're grateful here!
Romwe has so much to offer this AW season and I made a round up of my favorite pieces I specifically styled for this season that would fit petite ladies like me.
MY CUTEST PRESCRIPTION GLASSES
Now that the weather is so much better, we now have an excuse to actually wear a much thicker sweater than the usual. This on the other hand is the not-so-normal fluffy, knitted kinda sweater but a semi-swanky sporty one! I say semi because I got this original Phillies Jersey Jacket from my go-to thrift store and bagged it for AED 35. I was definitely feeling the boujee vibe here. Can you tell? 😎♥️
SUN, SAND, AND SEA
I never loved the idea of wearing prescription glasses. Unfortunately, because of spending too much time in front of the computer,reading, and doing my makeup in the dark, I had to get one. I started wearing prescription glasses in 2009 — can't believe it's been 8 years.
Summer pretty much consists of sun, sand, and sea. The weather is in full swing and there's no other way to beat it but to beach. As soon as the weather reached 45°C, I knew I had to say goodbye to skinny jeans for a while and get me some flowy and comfy clothes.
