Casual Stripes

UH-OH! Look who's here, some one call the PAPARAZZI!! :P
KA-CHING!
:D


It was like 2 degree Celsius when I got out of my place in the morning, and i was bundled up like a little rabbit, but Kuwait warmed up during mid day, 
and off came a couple of layers


I love layering a simple sweater on top of a button down shirt.. the collar and the cuffs peeking through, gives a little bit of dimension and contrast making it KA-CHING! 
:D

These boots have been my staples all month for 2 simple reasons :
1. They keep my puny legs warm
2. I can't be bothered to unearth the rest of my boots in the early winter mornings :)

TO DO: Rearrange my wardrobe this weekend. 


My Thor is always kind enough to take pictures for me. 
Believe me when I say this, he is the CUTEST! He runs around the whole place with a very professional touch, clicking away, untroubled by curious gawkers.
I get a weeeeeeeeeeeeee lil embarrassed though, and I'm always hurrying him 
"Fast baby fast, people are staring! "


By the way, WHATS THE DEAL WITH STAR BUCKS???

Have you tried Au bon pain?

you'll never think of starbucks again! take my word!





We were supposed to catch a movie today "The help", read great reviews and all that.. but forgetful me forgot to reserve the tickets.. 
SO, coffee and sheesha it is! 


See you soon darlings!

The Art of can, Kuwait


For the past couple of years, RED BULL, has been organizing the "Art of can" competition and exhibition in various different countries around the world. An initiative taken up by Red Bull to encourage art and recycling . Of course a little Red bull Hype and advertisement wouldn't hurt either :)

And for the first time in history, Kuwait hosted the Red bull art of can exhibition!

When the temperature is dropping mercilessly low, and when it seems like your bestest friend in the whole wide world is the cup of steaming coffee in your hands, an initiative taken up by the Bushery group, to bring the Red bull art of can exhibition to Kuwait is commendable! We actually had something SPECTACULAR to look forward to this weekend!

Well, if you're wondering why I'm taking so much ineterst in this, buckle up ma chere !!  :)





Ah THAT'S RIGHT! I HAD AN ENTRY BIATCH!
 ok, sorry, got a little carried off, I dint win even a complementary prize, and I still get carried away. 
tsk tsk ! Silly girl !



To prevent any confusions here, and to aid the total understanding of my  sweat and blood, I’ll explain my work a bit,

 (a friend of mine asked me,”What is the red bull doing to the baby bottle?”  YIKES!)


So the silver tilting mass that you see, yea, that’s supposed to be the Empire state building.
 Oh yeah! Big ideas! Wait a minute, It does look like a baby bottle, but I wasn’t the architect of The Empire state,  I’m just a mere copier, :D so well…



In my work, Red bull is holding up the falling Stock exchange. ( the ‘tilting’ symbolises the crashing financial crisis). And, as you may agree, red bull signifies Energy, vitality and vigour.
So to conclude, all I was trying to say is,  “With determination, vitality and vigour, we can overcome anything, including the financial crisis that’s choking a lot of us  of dear life.”
Ta-daaaaaaaaaaa!



 When I was standing amongst the other artists waiting for the emcee to declare the winner, I had little hopes, as you can see, BUT my family was very expectant. They thought I had a commendable idea behind the badly executed master piece. 

End of story, A scorpion, Lady gaga costume and  a huge silver bull took home the prizes. So much for deep thinking! :D
Apparently, they were looking for JUST art! :D

Stripes, Spots, Fur and Leather



Slowly but steadily, Kuwait is getting chillier.. So, well, I finally got the chance to wear my precious leather jacket. :)



  I love softening up the tough looks of a leather jacket with a delicate scarf. And what better than Miss leopard print herself to sass up the outfit :)




I loving these boots, and I'm loving them flat, but they were CRUSHING my toes inside..so by the end of the day, the pain vs. style scale was completely out of balance.. ::(



I know I've been over doing my Avexa.. BUT I WOVE HERRRR!!! :s





Quick update on my knee :: healing and limping :D



AAh, beautiful world , beautiful life.
Seriously, life is what you want it to be.
Hoping that you want nothing but awesome-ness from your life, I'm signing off for today.
God bless! :)

I tamed the Lion


They told me run away
He will chew and spit
He does not know how to stay
Cold, sharp, a culprit.

I couldn’t turn my back
To his charming smile
They said, commitment he may lack
I said, Maybe it will just take a while

Then I witnessed the leaf reduce
Gory, anguish , ache  aghast
Now I remember “them”  adduce
warning me of his callous past

We din’t give up, din’t have the power
Couldn’t stop fighting,
 with and for, each other,
the passion, our love calling.

Lord smiled, we walk the triumphant aisle
Of love and happiness, today, we’re scion.
I was right, it just took a while,
I have finally tamed my ferocious Lion!

How Peter pan fell


This is how easy it is to transform your summer wardrobe into your fall/winter wardrobe!
I absolutely love this playsuit, and I was more than excited to wear it today.
I was trotting away in happiness, when I tripped on my shoe lace, and fell face flat,
right in the MIDDLE OF THE ROAD!!!
well, I'm still alive to write this post, but bruised reeally bad :(



It's quite surprising that my knees resemble a scrumptious crepe now, but not a scratch on these EXPRESS tights. Girls, head on over to EXPRESS and grab all the tights you can. It has been tested (shedding blood), and MR.JovitaGeorge approves!

Getting back to the outfit, there's quite a lot I admire in this lovely 70's patterned romper.
The peter pan collar (you should know that I'm obssessed!), the flat gold buttons and the quirky belt just to list a few! :)

I threw on a simple black cardigan as the sun yawned goodnight , it was getting slightly chilly then.. :)


I told you I was in a supreme mood to start off with.. how could I step out the door without the rainbow on my wrist? :)


A girl's gotta be stylish, but rarely can I compromise on comfort,
and therefore, today was a day for my military boots 
now, the reason for my aching bruise :( 
and my Alexa lookalike, I baptize her, Avexa!
(I got her from this brand named VISS, but its clearly Alexa's long lost twin!) 





I'm signing off for the day with a smile and with this image, 
JUST in case you were wondering what my derriere looked like!
:D
see you soon sunshine!
take care until then!

Feeling Blue and Plaid


Kuwait has been painted with beautiful weather for the past couple of weeks. If only it felt like this all year round! :)





We decided to spend the weekend exploring a certain city. I knew I'd be spending the entire day walking, so I wore my fav pair of brogues, since they're comfortable and chic.
I had to make most of the enviable weather, you know, it's not always like this :)
So, I chose to wear this plaid shirt with a light blue flowy skirt, keeping a monochromatic and casual feel.



A wide patent leather belt, a matching vintage clutch (which belonged to my mom), ma rings and ma watch,
and Kuwait, here I come!



Watched the movie "In time" - NOT BAD!

Thanks for visiting me ma friend, hope to see you very soon!
tc :) !

I'm a teenager again!





It's been ages since i felt like this. 
I actually feel like a teenage girl again, 
My heart flutters every time I see him, and it just skips a beat when he smiles... 
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH NO! PLEASE STOP! DONT DO THIS TO ME! IMA ENGAGED WOMAN!


WELL, here's the deal, my mom's Korean friend gave her a DVD about 3 months ago.
She wanted to watch it and we refused. 
This weekend, owing to lack of exciting plans, my sister and I gave in to "mommy pressure" and played the DVD. I mean, how long would it take..? 1 hour? maybe 2? chalega !


3 hours into the movie, we're checking our watch and well, it's not going to finish any time soon.. 
6 hours into the movie we were like, what the hell is this?
10 hours into it, it clicked, OOOHH!! Its NOT a movie  !!


But by this time, we were sooooo hooked on to Joon shang and Youjin, we just had to know what happens to them, HOPING AGAINST ALL HOPES that they'd get together in the end.


Through tears, giggles, nachos, 20 hours and an entire weekend, we got through what we now call the "Mommys Korean serial"


(they DID end up together but my joon shang ended up blind, and I shed a few tears :(
HEY! it wasn't that obvious that they'd get together, he almost died 4 times, and she once in 20 hours.
 they were even declared siblings for a considerable amount of time.
so it's HUGE that they're thogether..u know.. ? )


But let me tell you something, every second of the 20 hours of the Mommy's Korean serial in a completely new language with prompt English subtitles, WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT.


ok, so we dint shower, eat or sleep for 3 days, but so what, I MET JOON SHANG.. <3


wait, i did eat shower and sleep.. but you get the idea.. :D


and now I'm searchin up the vast oceans of google about a korean actor whose name I can't even pronounce ..


    Bae yong joon.. I LOVE YOU ! 


    and with the permission of my fiance I've created a celeb list just     for HIM.. If you know what I mean.. ;)


So cutting this long story short, now see why I feel like a teenage girl?


btw, if you Still can't get me ..take a look !!




ha! NOW UNDERSTAND?


:D


P.s: If you're interested in watching this hottie and going through all that i went through- highly recommended,
the drama is named "Winter sonata"
sigh!

Time




Hanging on a flimsy chain,
Encrusted in gold and diamonds,
Slowly slipping in gruelling pain,
He stares down at the hungry canyon.

What’s it worth, all that cash,
If you don’t have time, by your side ?
For, only with time can you enjoy your stash
You can’t save some and you can’t hide.

The almighty has blessed us with,
TIME!  undoubtedly, the greatest gift!
Its preciousness, though forgotten, is not a myth.
you can share some with your love, for an instant lift!

This last minute spend reading,
Is lost forever, bid adieu.
Now stick it in a pile of deep yearning,
Cuz’ your clock just lost a few!

And as for the man with cash and gold,
Oh! He’s safe and warm and sound,
Now you nurse your need, before too old
Our stay is timed, on this ground!

Sunset love

Yellow+orange+red always made me feel warm and cozy. 
The kind of feeling you get when you're getting kissed by the sun at the beach
 So when the summer is slowly bidding goodbye, making way for winter to step in, 
I thought a little color therapy is all i need cuddle me up!
AND, I was right!


I got this orange Dorothy Perkin top a couple of weeks ago, and I've been wearing since! The option to style them are endless! and I love the color, the feel, the fall, and best of all the tuxedo style back! :)



Working with warm palette, I had to accessorize with gold, so I chose this knotted pale gold necklace,
belt, and my fav rose gold watch .


Well, the look is definitely not complete without a few pumps of my Gucci flora. NowPerfect!

Thanks for stopping by, love!
I'll see you soon

Leave love to the brave


LOVE shoves us into glistening meadows,
Of unimaginable warmth, where ecstasy glows
LOVE also leads us to teary graves,
Of uncontainable darkness, where pain enslaves
So, teenage girls trotting over,
To find the four leaf clover
I say, leave love to the absolute brave
‘cuz, It’s more than just a fluttering rave!

6 accessory every woman must own!



“The right accessory can make or break an outfit.”

I’ve heard that so much, I’m sick of that clich├ęd line!  But still, nothing can change my love for accessories - a hand full of stacked bracelets, the perfect pair of sun glasses, layered necklaces in gold and silver... mmmmm.. yeah!

We can customize and personalize an outfit JUST by using different accessories!
              And what’s even better?  You can even layer accessories to your heart’s content!

While, as a general rule of thumb, we prefer to stock up on cheap accessories, sometimes it’s better to invest in some classic pieces with which you can mix and match.
 Adding a few but significant pieces to your wardrobe will take it from being simply fab to ultra-glam!

So, here are the list of items, that EVERY girl, simply MUST have!
  
1.      Skinny belt
Who doesn’t like a defined waist?
Throw on a belt and cinch in that waist (or create a waist)
Layer more than one belt together to get a slightly chunky and unique  look, layer them in the same colors, in contrasting colours, in colors from the same family, in contrasting texture and materials..
the options are endless!



2.      A structured bag

You simply must have a classic structured bag in a basic color like, black, brown or beige. The bag will go with everything in your closet, and even house all your extra belongings!




3.      Wrist watch

What do you put out most often for the world to see? YOUR HANDS!
You talk with your hands, you point with your hands, you type with your hands.. I mean, its hands all the way..
SO, instead of buying 50 dozen cheap watches, invest in 1 designer watch in a timeless style.
Try to avoid over bling and pshycadelic colors , if it’s going to be your only designer watch.




4.      The perfect  stilettos

Another staple that every woman MUST own! A great pair in nude, not only goes with every single attire you own and lengthens and shapes your legs  it also lends you unprecedented amount of Glamour and poise!
Need I say more about black stilettos?
 (well, it shapes your calves! Not the blackness.. the heelness! :P )
Opt for chunkier heels if you’re a woman on the run, and a sleek pointy one for an elegant night out.



5.      Perfume

The perfect accessory of all time! Who said accessories have to be visible??
Tantalize the olfactory senses of your poor victims! Buhuhuhahahaha..!
 You could be dressed in the most basic tee and jeans, but if you’ve got your sexy signature scent on , girl, you’re a diva!
Invest in a good brand, so that you don’t harm you skin. And you smell like the Glamdoll that you are!
Make ‘em boys and girls drool!


6.      Diamond studs
Which woman doesn’t own a pair of simple blings? 
No better way to scream, “Classic, elegant and timeless! ”



Case closed!
