Ramadan Skin Care Routine!

Hello everyone! Ramadan Mubarak and I hope that this Holy month is going smooth and easy with you guys.

Now I’m sure we’re all suffering dried lips and cranky skin during Ramadan but there’s always a way to take care of your skin and keep it looking healthier than ever, of course while fasting you don’t feel like doing anything at all and all you want to do is rest and EAT! lol, but believe me after a couple of days when you start to notice the changes in your skin you’ll come running for a healthy skin care routine to boost your skin up high.

Here are a couple of tips I personally use everyday:

  • Number 1: DRINK DRINK DRINK WATER!

My first and most important tip is to stay hydrated, after your Iftar focus on drinking a good amount of water (at least 8 glasses of water from Iftar to Suhoor) to make up for the lack of water in your body.

We all know that water is crucial to keep your skin hydrated and healthy, so keep those glasses of water coming!

  • Number 2: Moisturize!

Since water will be working its way to hydrating your body on the inside your skin will also need some extra help to stay hydrated on the outside. To do so, try applying a little more of your daily moisturizer throughout the day.

Here are a couple that you may want to try:

  • Number 3: Sunscreen

If you’re a busy bee and you spend most of the day out in the sun (especially in this hot weather) please please don’t forget your sunscreen! It’s very important to protect your beautiful skin from all the sun rays it’s exposed to.

  • Number 4: Maintain a healthy diet:

I know I know, its hard during Ramadan, but at least try to add more fruit and vegetables to your Iftar and Suhoor that are rich in vitamins A,B,C to maintain and beautiful skin.

 

  • Number 5: Face Masks 

Pamper your skin twice a week with your favorite face mask, or you can try out My #1 Home Made Face Mask for a smooth, clear skin!

 

Hope you guys try these tips out and if you do please let me know how it goes! I’d love to hear from you!

It’s All About The Accessories!

Starting this year with a simple chic look. I’m that type of girl that always looks for what’s comfortable more than just caring about the look; now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE TO DRESS UP, but I believe that there is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being comfortable and simple in what she wears. To me, that is the true essence of beauty. After all; less is more.

So in this look I went for a long white shirt and layered it with an olive green velvet top, to make this look stand out I added a statement necklace. You can choose to wear heels or slip ons, depending on your occasion.

I’ll leave you with the photos now and don’t forget to comment below and let me know what you guys think! I’d love to hear from you!

Zoku Amsterdam

Looking for a nice decent hotel in Amsterdam that was close to the city, served breakfast and was relaxing at the same time wasn’t easy.

After over a month of searching and booking different hotels, we finally found the perfect hotel for us, that had everything we wanted and more.

Zoku’s headline was Home Away From Home and it truly was home. The staff were extremely nice and friendly, they helped us out in so many ways, not to mention the good talks we had with some of them.

Their rooms are uniquely designed; lofts, leaving you with a living room, bed space and a kitchen. Exactly what you need if you were home.

Every morning we would head up to Zoku’s kitchen to enjoy a well served and healthy breakfast made by one of the skilled chefs. You can choose to sit indoor or outdoor, both are very refreshing for you to start your day.

The upstairs ‘living room’ or social space was more than comfortable wether you wanted to read a book, get some work done or simply enjoy a cup of coffee. In every corner there’s something for you to enjoy. Sitting outside in the terrace was my favorite part, viewing Amsterdam from the rooftop and fresh air was all I could ask for.

Rembrandt Square was only a 5 minute walk away, the closest tram station was 3 minutes away. Rijksmuseum was a 10-15 minutes walking distance. So basically everything was close by. There’s also a  convenient store just across the street from Zoku.

If at any time you don’t feel like walking or taking the tram, Zoku can arrange a bike rental, which makes it even easier for you to wander around the city.

At the end of the day when you’ve walked your feet off and you don’t feel like going out for dinner, you could simply take the elevator to Zoku’s kitchen and enjoy one of their exquisite meals for dinner. Once you’re done you can end your day with some fun with friends or family at Zoku’s entertainment room, board games, table tennis, or even some fun by throwing some boxing gloves having a go at the punching bag.

Basically words can’t explain how much my husband and I enjoyed our 6 day stay at Zoku Amsterdam. It was the highlight of our lovely trip and whenever we think about visiting  Amsterdam again, the first thing we think about is staying at Zoku, again!

Monochromatic OOTD Plus A Massive Transformation!

Hello lovelies! I wanted to share a little something with you about this sleeveless coat, well honestly it wasn’t sleeveless.

A couple of months ago I ordered this black long sleeve coat along side with two other pieces, and to be honest I didn’t really like it because the sleeves were to short and the shoulders were puffy, I kept it hanging in my closet hoping one day it will be useful.

Last week I thought I’d give my wardrobe a makeover and get rid of the things I wont be wearing and on the other hand add some more key pieces. I noticed that I don’t have a black sleeveless coat and that a lot of my tops would look really good with one; so I added that to my “Wardrobe Makeover List” and kept in mind that I should get one ASAP, while still going through my wardrobe I found the black coat and a few thoughts came to me about making it useful and transforming it to a sleeveless coat.

I took a pair of scissors, thread and a needle and began cutting the sleeves off, I threaded the edges and added a little touch to the shoulders, and this was the result!
