First Day of Fashion School! =D


Hello Luvies,

Ok so I haven't had any time to do anything so I'm going to combine 2 posts in one post here it goes..

Aaaaah I'm in New York, The Big City! Can't believe I'm finally here, not just here but actually living here, I LOVE IT! Living in the city feels so good lol walking everywhere, seeing new places and all the lights and busy streets, it really is the city that never sleeps :p

Moving here and moving in was really hectic hence why I haven't had any time to post about it, I've been buying necessities, buying school supplies, unpacking, organizing my new place, it really is a lot of things to do. Anywho after a week of moving in and orientation and meeting new people and a little bit of exploring, the day that I have been waiting 6 months for was finally here. THE FIRST DAY OF FASHION SCHOOL! =D

My first day was AMAZING! I had 2 classes and both teachers were so nice and helpful, I could tell that I'm really going to enjoy the classes. I think I'm going to enjoy all the classes, why wouldn't I they're fashion classes, I mean seriously it doesn't get any better than this. For my first project in one of the classes I get to design a swimwear collection, how cool is that? Aaaah I'm so excited I already have thoughts and ideas of what I wanna do! :)

Had to create a pattern of a sleeve for one of my classes
Ok my school is amazing! Walking down the hallways there are dresses and gowns and lingerie and children's clothing and sketches designed by students all displayed in different hallways around the school. Just walking around and being surrounded with these things makes it soo fashion school. And our library has one of THE LARGEST FASHION COLLECTION in the country, I'm not just talking books, but magazines. Vogue, Harpers Bazaar from the 1930's! That's Crazy! Ive seen them with my own eyes and I was just amazed at the things they have in this library. They have fashion forecasts from different designers. The designers donate them to the school. Since they are fashion forecasts you can't really check them out or scan, or copy them. You can just look at them in a small little area and return them when you are done. They have fashion forecasts for 2013 already! 2012 just started aaah I'm def going to take a look at those :p The library also has garments from different designers that either the school bought or that have been donated and you can actually go look at these garments, they also have garments from the 1950's till now MIND BLOWING def gonna go take a look at a few of those as well.

Seriously I think I'm going to be spending a lot of time at this fashion library it's like heaven for fashionistas. The students in this cool just WOW I feel like I'm at a fashion event, everyone is just fashionably dressed with soo many different styles and looks, I'm def going to do a post with a few pics of they're outfits :p

As far as my schedule, it's pretty full cuz I'm taking 7 classes :/ So we'll see how well I can manage blogging and school, I really wanna update you with my NYC adventures so I'll try as much as I can.

Below I've posted a few pics of what I have been up to so far, take a look!

Walking down 5th Avenue


First Shopping bought some boots and Victorias Secret :)
School Supplies, I think it's funny how my school supplies are thread, needles and fabric instead of books :p
Guess I'm in the right place then :p
Bought a baking pan for yummy cookies!! =D


And that pretty much sums up my first week living in NYC!

VIDEO - The MakeUp Manual's Day or Evening Eye look

Ok This has been in drafts for a while.. finally posting it :p but I was so excited when The MakeUp Manual posted her first ever video on youtube! =D

The MakeUp Manual has been tweeting for a while and she tweets everything beauty and makeup related, if you're not already following her I suggest you do so asap! :p @TheMakeupManual

And if you haven't checked out her video, check it out below! She teaches you how to do a simple Day or Evening Look with warm shades :) Warm, neutral subtle shades are totally in for 2012, It's all about the nudes!

After seeing this video and reading many blogs and sites saying how neutral shades is one of the beauty trends for 2012, I've been looking at Urban Decay's Naked Palette's, I WANT ONE lol I don't think both are necessary since some colors are the same but I have nooo idea which one I wanna get :/ I like 1 cuz it has gold tones and the blue-ish metallics but 2 has neutrals that I like aaaaaah I dunno which one to pick. I'm thinking maybe the 1 cuz it has more gold tones and I don't really have gold toned shadows or blue-ish colors. hmm I'll think about it for a while before I decide which one to get lol

P.S. We're doing our First Ever Giveaway so make sure you enter! The prize is GORGE ;)

Dazzling Designs Evening Gowns Launch



Hello Luvies,

Last night I attended my dear friend Dazzling Designs Evening Gowns Launch. The evening gowns featured were gowns from different brands that she has brought over from the US, brands of evening gown dresses that celebrities wear. Also she had gowns that she herself has designed. The launch was at her house with racks of gowns to look through. She had many cute sparkly dresses and short cocktail dresses. Amongst the gowns was the same gown that Eva Longoria wore to a red carpet event (not the exact dress she wore lol but the same dress) I enjoyed looking through the dresses and supporting my friend. Take a look at photos I took from the Event and you can check out her Facebook page here and follow her on Twitter @DazzlingBahrain

Lamya's Oil Tips

Hello Luvies,

So my friend Lamya has been tweeting about different oils she uses for face and hair, I have only tried one of the tips n it worked! So here I am sharing with you her tips! Let me know if you tried any of the tips n how it worked for you :) also if you'd like you can follow her on twitter @Lamya

1.  This for my hair, you can find it in any supermarket. Nourishes and smoothes hair cuticles


2.  For my face. More expensive almond oil. Good for complexion, removal dark circles+blemishes! You can find this oil from NatureValley in Juffair, "I had such bad skin! I would use it every 4-5 days but now I've improved so once every 2 weeks maybe" - Lamya

Apply it on for at least an hour or 30 min. massage it (upwards) then I wash it with my organic papaya+soy face wash!

3.  And of course this for your eyelashes!! You can also use it on your eyebrows (I've use this on my eyebrows to make them grow faster cuz I wanted to thicken my eyebrows n this definitely worked!)

4. I still use amla sometimes!almond oil is good for hair fall too&improves quality but I think coconut is better for thickening

5. Almond oil can help with the removal of dark circles under your eyes

Now Lamya is not a professional or anything these are just tips I decided were worth sharing, I haven't tried all of these like I mentioned I have only tried number 3, but these are all her words and her pictures! Thank You so much LamLam for letting me share your tips :)

What I Wore - Fashion Friday

Hello Luvies!

Just a what I wore post for this year's first Fashion Friday! =D


Cardigan, Dress, Necklace - Forever 21
Tights - H&M
Shoes - Charles & Keith
I also finally found a cute faux fur vest today! Been looking for one for a while now n after trying it on just had to buy it! Today is also El Dia De Los Reyes (The Day of the Three Kings) A spanish tradition we used to celebrate more when we were younger. We basically would leave a small box of grass under our bed the night before for the horses of the three kings, then our mom would come in when we were sleeping and take the grass n leave us a small gift, usually a good book (supposedly that the three kings came, fed their horses then left us a gift :p)

I'm telling you this because since It's El Dia De Los Reyes my gift is this great faux fur vest! =D oo I got it from Koton incase you were wondering..





P.S. I'm waiting to get the pics from the Bloggers Meet Up to give you a full detailed post, so stay tuned! :)
With Love, Reem
