Makeup Crush - IsaDora

If you know me then you know that I am not loyal to a particular makeup brand so I am always on the lookout for something new that will do the job better. I generally have go-to's (I'll share my current makeup bag with you soon) but I do keep my eyes open. So when this showed up on my door (a big thanks to my friends at Habchi and Chalhoub), I was so excited and I'm being so honest when I say that these did not disappoint. The gloss is lovely and the mascara is just amazing, it doesn't clump and is really lengthening. The blush is so easy to use and gives me a little bit of a glow without looking like a clown, something I've had an issue with blush sticks before.

Their products are fragrance free, clinically test in order to avoid any allergic reactions (as a white girl with sensitive skins that is amazing) and are, of course, not tested on animals. That last item is something that is close to my heart, it's a terrible thing to find out that your favorite products are animal tested... so cruel. But anyways, I'm not 100% sure but I think IsaDora available at Faces but the next time you are looking for something new, make sure you keep IsaDora in mind!

I Want Wednesday - 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Mini

Hey dolls! So running this blog drives me crazy as much as it makes me happy. I love fashion or I wouldn't be doing this to myself and by this I mean subjecting myself to the torturing task of combing through pages and pages of products and finding my favorite trends and items. So I have decided to share with you items that might not necessarily fit in any trend or post I'm working on but I am lusting after in a major way. 

So to get this show on the road, I'm gonna start with a bag that I've wanted for such a long time, but have just not taken the plunge; the Pashli mini. Phillip Lim is just brilliant and this bag shows that brilliance and just when you think he wouldn't make improve a good thing, he does! I present you with a polka-dot Pashli mini! Now if only I had some savings....

Femininity on Steroids

Alright, so we live in a world were traditional notions of beauty and grace have become blurred with the edginess of the time. I look at our fashion and see the blend of the past 30 decades and it's so interesting. Whether it's leather leggings or see-thru tops, horoscope items and kaleidoscope pieces, they all call back to older ages but with more sophistication and class than their slightly tackier counterparts.



The Hiatus Ends


Yep, you heard me. This hiatus has officially come to an end. I have decided that I need to get back into the swing of things and after a lot of thinking about the direction that this blog will take, I have come to a conclusion: I don't know where this will go. But that doesn't mean I have to keep waiting till I figure it out. This will change, it will grow and develop into something else, and that doesn't have to be a bad thing. I hate the idea of being restricted, and so I am giving myself free reign. Anything pretty and related goes. So stay tuned for something new, and something old too!

MPE Obsessions - August

Better late than never. August is flying by and that's all I'm going to say. It's so hot and now that we're back to normal working hours all I want to do is manage to get to the cooler months so I don't die of a heat-stroke! I'm a white girl, I'm not made for this kind of weather!!

This months obsessions are all about the fall and changes. They are mostly about where I want to be physically (EUROPE) as well as where I'd like to be just generally in my life, with my own home and family. Who knows, right?  I'm keeping my options open and not sure of what's going to happen but no matter what, I promise I'll always keep blogging!

I'm Sorry!

If there are actually people out there reading this then I love you all and I really am so sorry that I have been AWOL, but I have a lot going on in my life. There are things I would love to share with you all but it just isn't time yet and there are things I can share like a busy last 10 days of Ramadan, a hectic Eid, and an exhausting past few days... I am sorry but things will probably stay slow for a bit longer, but I'll be back into the normal swing of things soon!
