Top 3 Styles That I Am Head Over Heels For.

May 30, 2016 Syz 2 Comments

Assalamualikum guys! I was recently on Pinterest, call it a hunting for some ideas on what I should post next (yes, not only did I logged into Tumblr for this blog, I also logged into Pinterest after what seems like a decade since I last opened it). For this post I'll be sharing the Top 3 styles that I am currently in-love with. Based on what I've seen online, I was inspired to recreate the styles in a way that I would wear it.

The Minimalist.

This style is perfect for those who like simple yet fashionable. Since the colour scheme is basically black and white, it's not hard to get this look. You just need a pair of pants, match it with a shirt/shirt dress and a long cardigan/jacket. Honestly, you can never go wrong with black, white and gray! Pair this look with classic nude eyes and lips, and voila! A pair of ankle-length boots is ideal for this look, a bag and sunglasses to match are a must! This is the style that I recently found out about and am dying to try out, honestly I've been trying to find a shirt dress long enough that it goes below my knees, but I couldn't get my hands on any (well any cheap ones that is...) Although I am not giving up that easily and I will definitely constantly be on the look out for it!

The Boho Gal.
This style is one that I adore afgdgdfshjdfgjhsfk very much. I don't know, I just find it adorable yet elegant (?). The earthy colour scheme makes it perfect for spring & summer. Don't you think it'll be perfect for a picnic?  For this look I paired up a sand coloured crop top with a plain black maxi skirt, then of course a lovely fringe cream kimono to go with it. Complete the outfit with a pair of matching sandals, round (and superrr pretty) sunglasses and a fringe suede backpack.

Chic in the City.
This style is also one of my favourites (well duh, that's what this post is all about..). When I made this, there was only one word that came in mind to describe it; Cute. I added flared pants to this look because I honestly want to own one, they sell flared pants here but I can't seem to find the denim ones. The colour scheme is quite similar to the minimalist one, this one has a touch of denim blue though. What makes this different from the minimalist style is probably the baggy oversized denim jacket and the cute bunny ears sling bag. If you were to pair the shoes, glasses and the phone cover with the minimalist style, I'm 99.9% sure it'll match hehe.

That's all for this post! Hope you guys got a glimpse of my fashion sense, would love to know which one of these 3 is your favourite :)


Friday Reminder.

May 20, 2016 Syz 2 Comments

Assalamualikum, so it's Fridayyy today (obviously) and I especially logged into Tumblr for today's post. I decided to collect a few reminders that I hope would be of benefit to you as it was for me, which could help on those days where you're either feeling like life's not going the way you want it to or that you're beating yourself up over something or you're just sick and tired of everything.... Basically you're surrounded by all sorts of negativity. 

Honestly for me, the best way to eliminate negativism is to counter-attack it with some 
~ positive thinking ~




These are just the 10 reminders that I collected, there were definitely a lot more but I just limit myself to posting ten per week on a Friday. Most (actually almost all) of them are from islamicrays, which I highly recommend you to follow if you have Tumblr. That's it for this post, hope it gives you some sense of positivity to go on for the day :)


Boots Haul.

May 14, 2016 Syz 4 Comments

Assalamualaikummm ~ I am finally back with another post, it seems like it's a habit of mine to post once every blue moon hehe. Anyways for today's post I have decided to share what I bought during my shopping trip to Boots, which is probably the only drugstore I go to. They always have this great sales and offers going on. For example, a few weeks ago it was "pay 2 for 3" and this week it was the "buy 1 and get 1 free" sale! 

These were 4 things I ended up buying:

2x Boots Leave-In Conditioner (Coconut & Almond)
Simply Sensitive Micellar Water
Simply Sensitive Cleansing Gel

This Cleansing Gel Wash cost AED 20, but it was free in my case because I bought the Micellar Water. I have used simply sensitive face cleanser before and it works fine with my skin. The lady in the store who was helping me said it was the same thing except the texture was different, this one is Gel Wash and the one I used before was Foaming Wash. I think I prefer this texture more (this is just my preference) since it actually feels like I'm putting something on my face and it helps with the light scrubbing that I do when washing my face.

These two cost AED 12 each, but I got them both for AED 12 thanks to the 2 for 1 sale. I recently started using this, and am quite happy with the result. Since my hair gets pretty dry and tangly, this helps whenever I comb my hair. I usually apply it after a shower, just few sprays on my damp hair starting from the tips. The scent is quite strong (might want to hold your breath when spraying) but later on your hair is left with this nice "coco-nutty"(?) smell.

And last but not least, this Micellar Water cost AED 25. So I basically paid AED 25 for the Face Cleanser and the Micellar Water. This is the first time I'm using this, I was actually looking for one since I've seen so many positive feedback on how Micellar Water works wonder in removing makeup. Since Garnier is too expensive here and I'm not willing to spend that much on something that I would only use once or twice a month, I decided to go for the cheaper option. Honestly this works perfectly fine, I had my eyes full of makeup yesterday and this removed it without any problem whatsoever. I'd give this a 5/5, I'm actually thinking of buying more of this so that I have an extra.. Hehe I'm such a hoarder...

Thanks to the 2 for 1 sale, I spent exactly AED 37 instead of AED 69. Hurray to saving! 
That's all I have for this post, thank you for reading!
