Counting the days

We are going on our yearly vacation after Ramadan and enshallah this year we will be going to Barcelona for 5 days. Now my mum and I are searching for a hotel, we came up with 2, Arts hoteland Omm Hotel . Still didn't decide which one we will stay in. While searching, we saw that W Hotel will be opening in October, unfortunately not in the time we are there, also Mandarin Oriental Hotelwill be Opening but it doesn't show on their web site when exactly.

So for those who have been to Barcelona, are there any places I should not miss when I'm there?

Read post below to know what is this

My Bib Necklace

Image
Remember when I said I'm going to do my own necklace, and it is going to be inspired by Vera Wang? Well here is the result...

It is made from crystals taken from our old chandelier. It is extremely heavy, don't know how I'm going to wear it. Another mistake that I have done is cutting the neckline too wide; it does not suppose to be like this. I HAVE TO WEAR IT, it took me forever to finish it.






The gift

Image
Our friend B just gave birth to a lovely baby boy. To celebrate this event my sister made her a creative gift. First I'm going to show you the box she made then you will see the gift. She got this flower idea from a tutorial blog called Folding Trees , where it teaches you how to create stuff from paper.











Now the gift ...





2 lamps , one smaller than the other, the small one has on it the baby's name and the other has the family's name. The names are laser cut. Congrats B, hope you liked it :)

Ramadan Kareem

Image
Today is the 5th day of Ramadan, It has been a busy week, and work is exhausting, can't wait for tomorrow to come. How are you guys and how is Ramadan with you? Yesterday we went to Marina,I bought lots of stuff from By Malene Birger (Fall collection is out now) Zara and Oysho. I would love to show you what I got but I'm tired to take pictures, next time enshallah. Below is the only thing I took a picture of...





Cute sequined bag from Zara, don't let the picture fools you, it's a very small bag, fits a BB and some small objects like lipstick or keys.

I hate organic food

Image
Confashion posted about a new place called The Baking Tray, so tonight my friends and I went there to check it out. Everything they serve is organic, totally not my thing. I tried a coffee cheese cake, it was horrible. I also had a lemonade with honey in it instead of sugar, uhhh I hate natural ingredients.

But the place looks amazing and I loved the atmosphere in there, I really had a great girl’s night out.


We sat here

Still have nothing to wear for Ramadan?

What's new at Goji

Image
Got this by email today:

"Goji boutiqueare bringing more Lauren Moshi tops. In beautiful colors, cuts and of course the most beautiful hand-drawn designs. All Lauren Moshi’s tops are produced in limited numbers and not repeated, so that all gals feel special wearing them.

We brought in Katherine Kwei’s charms-key holders with China’s good-fortune animals, a koi fish, a panda and a turtle. They can also be hanged at the side of a handbag for a colorful statement. Don’t these make the nicest gift?

Moreover, Thayer’s loose black silk pants are a statement by themselves and all they need is a top like Lola Faturoti’s puffed sleeved top. "

Bait Lothan

Image
Look what I found in Bait Lothan Lovely accessories made in Turkey, and they were not that expensive too. 45KD for this necklace.

Flashback

Image
One of my readers suggested that I go check out 2 photography shops in Al-Muthana for lights, and I did. But I think I made a big mistake by getting these 2 (200 watt) flashes.

They were too strong that I ended up taking pictures like the one above :(


Then after watching some videos on youtube on how to take pictures of products I learned some things and shoot this picture, but as you can see the background is not white; it's a little bit purple.

The second shoot is perfect from the left hand side (white) but from the right hand side it is still purple.


I like this one, but still ... I have a pinkish background :(
I think I need lighting not flashes. I want to shoot like Net-a-porter images
