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 hotel and 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 Hotel will 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?

Look I'm playing with colors

Bib Necklace

Read post below to know what is this

My Bib Necklace

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...


Necklace - inspired by Vera wang (3)

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


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.

I hate organic food

Bakin Tray

Baking tray 2

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.

What's new at Goji

goji small

Got this by email today:

"Goji boutique are 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. "

I did it

Necklace by Ibrah

Necklace by Ibrah (5)

I got the background to be white :) finally.
I know I know some of you will say it's not completely white, but at least now I know that by time I can get it fixed. I played with something called the (fstop) in the camera and something next to it, my problem is solved.

Flashback

Studio

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.

Purple clutch 1
They were too strong that I ended up taking pictures like the one above :(

Purple Clutch 2

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.

Purple Clutch 3

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

Kimono

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
