Symphony Edit: AW11

While visiting my friend at her workplace I got my hands on Symphony Edit: Autumn Winter 2011 from Symphony Boutique and fell in love again with another magazine (sorry ELLE UK but I think we should have an open relationship). 

Coming back to Symphony Edit I didn't have the time to read it as we had to leave for lunch.  However, I loved the topics and the editorial. And THANK GOD I can read it in their website, as it would be my gateway pleasure from studying ( I hate finals). 

Alaa Balkhy illustration I love her work, her blog is a must follow. She translated Charlotte Olympia quote to Arabic in the above image:
"The higher the heel the better."  

I love the statement about their favorite press coverage about their boutique 
"We don't mean to Brag. We don't mean to boast. But we're like hot butter on a breakfast toast"




Tonight my BFF shared with me videos of how to mispronounce the fashion labels like Versace and Chanel. And IT WAS HILARIOUS.

At the beginning you will be like this is stupid, but then you will just keep on laughing. So just check the videos out :)

My favorite is Versace sooooo funny.

Wishing Wall

I am very grateful and thankful for Allah (God in arabic) for the passing year, it was one hell of a ride. However, we survive it. As well I am very grateful for my family and close friends, as they are the people who create half of your personality. 

A special thanks to my lil' sister who annoys me, and fight with me. But whenever I need her she will come running to my help. LOVE U SIS.

Kimbra to love

With the year ending a lot of bloggers and websites list down their top ten lists for different things, and I came across Kimbra.

The 21 years old New Zealand singer/songwriter captured me with not just her music but even with her new style and creative videos.

I am now in love with "Settle Down", "Cameo Lover" and her song with Gotye "Somebody I Used to Know" 

Settle Down

Cameo Lover

Gotye - Somebody I Used To Know



The Great Gatsby (1974)

Yesterday my best friend and I wanted The Great Gatsby to know what's the buzz about it. Last week I download it the movie, and we marked our calendars for movie night. 

After two long hours, this is what we thought about it.. 

It wasn't a 10 start movie, but it was good because the full cast can ACT. That's the conclusion my friend and I came to, as well how boring was the 20s. 

When to watch? when you need inspiration about the 20s fashion and life style. but not when you are heart broken or bored. 

What I loved? the direction, the fashion (cloths, hair-dos), and ROBERT BEDFORD. 

What I didn't like? how bubbly was Daisy, and yes ALL the women in the movie except Jordan.

don't we have fun"

Tim*Audrey .. a real proposal

When you see those kind of videos you just know that prince charming is real and he will find you and love you till eternity. 

Happy Holidays Everyone



Manamatna (Our Manama)

Manama the capital of my lovely country Bahrain, is the theme of a new gallery in Al Riwaq (Adliya, Bahrain). The Art Gallery called Manamatna the arabic word for (Our Manama) which tells the history of Manama from a different angel.

I just loved it after a small gathering with my friends even though they are originally from Manama and I'm not well to bad cause I would love to be part of the Manama culture. 

Peppermint tea (my favorite)

The famous wooden chairs from schools that will kill from back pain after 7 hours of setting. 

Translation: Manama the shanzelize of the gulf. 

The doll is holding a sign "I am Manama, what do you say about me?" in arabic. 

Someone wrote on it "Memories".

Collection Inspiration..

The design of the second issue of Collection magazine is fabulous however what I loved the most is this quote: 

"I'm not sure where our imagination starts and ends, but I enjoy mine, and try to make those dreams a reality on occasion"

My favorite Perfume commercials

A lazy afternoon with Audrey Hepburn's movie Sabrina and with the family, that is how I spent my last day of the national day holiday. 

After that I remembered the funny diesel's Loverdose commercial, and started looking on for my favorite perfume commercials 

Diesel - Loverdose 

I love the look on the boxer face, so adorable and funny <3 

Prada - Candy 

Tough love :P 

Valentino - Valentina 

It reminds me a lot of Roman Holiday, don't you think so?

Stella MaCartney - Stella 

My FIRST perfume when I was at high school, and it change my perspective about the girlish perfumes to the strong lasting ones.

Chanel - Coco Mademoiselle 

I can't explain my feelings because Keira Knightley said it all .. I think I will get it soon after YSL parisienne as I really miss the smell of it *sigh*

The Commercial 



More Sleep

Finally after a week and a half of working and killing myself I can say that today is my official DAY OFF, and this is how I plan to spend it..

sweet dreams and enjoy the holidays,

The 20s Fashion

The 20s is such a beautiful era full of gorgeous fashion styles and trends that the most modren fashion designers can let go of.
