What I'm Loving ♥

It's winter in most of the world, except where I live! This is one of those moments where I'm enjoying living in sunny Pasadena. This post is my idea of winter pieces for SoCal and I hope you love them as much as I loved hunting them down! I've missed you all!

oh la la... Rosé [PINK]

The color that started it all. Pink. I thought it was fitting to start it off again on that note. It's been a long time my friends but I am back. Things have changed, things continue to change but I have found a balance and am ready to commit to this in a way that I haven't been able to in a long time. So I got married, move half way across the world, got a job with an amazing non-profit all while struggling to learn how to be a wife and a homemaker in a place far away from everyone I love and everything I know.

So back on topic. Pink! Just saying it makes me think of spring and tea parties. It's feminine but I hate when people say it's girlie because it is more than that. Men in pink are real men in my opinion.

Anyways, this season, make sure you are edgy with your feminine ware. If already mix and match, then you're awesome and if you don't mix and match then you need to get on that bandwagon. 

Pink on.

Moto Bombing

Leather jackets. I cannot think of a single time in my life where I heard someone say "I hate leather jackets" and that's with good cause; leather jackets, (or if you call them moto, biker or bomber jackets) are always a perfect touch no matter the decade. Nowadays this trend is within the reach of any fashionista (on any type of budget) I do have to point out that you obviously will not be getting the same quality when you go way cheaper but don't let that turn you off! I bought a leather jacket from H&M and it was a beauty. I got so many compliments on it, so remember to really buy leather with your senses; feel it, smell it, and of course, make sure that it has the look you're going for. Oh and I'm sharing my leather purchase for the fall and I am SO excited to use it! Happy leather hunting!

Perfume of the Month - Calvin Klein Liquid Gold Euphoria

Fashion month is in full swing and in honor of this glamorous month, which is my birthday month btw, I've decided to share my new perfume obsession with you. Calvin Klein Liquid Gold Euphoria is completely perfect for this fall and is going to be my go to scent for this upcoming Eid. I'm actually so picky about my scents, I love florals in the summer and more refined and powdery scents in the winter. This scent is exactly what a fall scent should be, the love child of floral and powdery, delicate and woody. Next time you are next to a Faces, or anywhere else that it is sold, take a smell and let me know what you think!

Tropical Punch

Gonna put the the world away for a minute
Pretend I don't live in it
Sunshine gonna wash my blues away...

So to those who don't know, I'm Palestinian-American by birth but I was born and raised in Kuwait. I am so proud of where my family comes from and this post is dedicated to a place near and dear to my heart-Northern Florida. These items scream beach and summer and everything good about that way of life. I'm going on vacation soon, and it can't be soon enough but till then, I think these words sum up how I feel when I think about what is to come...

My Pink Elephant - May Obsessions

Hello May and summer! It's finally here and I hear you all say "OH NO!" Well we had a good run with a cold winter and an actual Spring this year so let's not complain too much about the heat wave coming our way. So between this season’s new trends and spring collection releases, I had plenty to obsess about this month! Here are some my favorite May treats and incase you didn't know May has always been one of my favorite months of the year, it's very name brings to mind beautiful imagery. Flowers, pastels, flawy fabric and fruity desserts (hey, don't judge! Food is important, especially good food!)

So this month it was easy to put together this post, just a bunch of pretty items with florals and graceful colors oh and Star Wars! I'm a Sci-Fi fan and I am so excited about the new Star Wars movie. I was not a fan of the newer 3 in the series, but I really believe that Disney will bring us back to the golden days of Star Wars.  In short, wear a lot of brights this May, maybe let Elie Saab inspire you (I know he does for me) and don't be afraid to mix and match patterns & bright colors like the super fashionable Helena Šopar.

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....

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!

MPE Obsessions - July

Look at me! I'm all on time and stuff. I am determined to make my blog a priority, no matter what else I have going on! So this months obessesions are all about Ramadan. For all my Muslim followers, you all must be as excited as I am because Ramadan is my favorite time of the year! For my non-Muslim followers, you must be wondering either what the heck Ramadan is or how on earth can I be looking forward to month of fasting!? Well I'm going to answer both questions for you!

Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic lunar calendar  (which basically means that every year our dates change based on the moon) and it is during this month that practicing Muslims fast, that means both food & water, from dawn until the sun sets. I can understand that a lot of you might think that that would be awful and hard on your body but it really isn't. It's mind over matter, I mean how many times have you been so busy that you get into bed and suddenly realize that you haven't eaten? It doesn't hurt you. 

But Ramadan isn't fasting just for the sake of fasting, it has a deeper meaning. Ramadan is a time to reevaluate the way that you are living and either get back on the right path or solidify your place there. It's sort of like we make New Years resolutions and have a month to work on fulfilling those resolutions. But it isn't only about adjusting your own life, it's about coming to terms with others. It is a time of forgiveness where we should try to make peace with people that have wronged us and also to bring your loved ones closer together. Basically, it's about out cleaning up our lives, our thoughts, and our feelings.

So, this is how I see Ramadan, and the reason I love it is because, besides all of that goodness, it has such wonderful family memories. It's like the best Thanksgiving weekend but it lasts a month! You get yummy food that is almost solely for Ramadan and when it's time to eat, all the family gets together and  shares the moment together. That might seem insignificant to some people, but when everyone has their own life and schedule something as simple as sharing a meal at the table is hard to achieve. Also, knowing that all the Muslims around the world are feeling the same way is such a beautiful and touching thing that it is hard not to get somewhat emotional.

Ok so enough about Ramadan, if you have any questions you can always email me ( and I will be more than happy to answer them! I hope you enjoy this months picks!
