If you follow me on Instagram, then you should know by now that I am...well as was in New York City. This trip was my 2nd time in #NYC, and our agenda was to explore and eat with no work in mind. I didn't entirely prepare outfits ahead of time, but I made sure to bring staple styles that I could mix and match. And because it was going to be a walking trip, I considered bringing comfortable shoots and boots.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More

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.Read More
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!

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? 😎♥️Read More
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.Read More
