But why Fashion? #bullying #mentalhealth

Hello my gazelles, I hope that you’re all doing well! Today’s topic is about fashion and how I used it as a form of self-expression which helped me shape my personal identity.

You may already know that I lived in Newcastle for more than 9 years. I have to say that a lot has happened. Like that one time I got threatened to get my hair chopped off by some girls who were serious enough to stick chewing gum up in my hair and it was an absolute pain to remove !

On the other hand; I had to cope with being bullied by some Arabs for not covering up my hair, until time went by and I started wearing a headscarf. I then got upgraded to a new level by being publicly harassed by non-muslims for wearing one.

This is a note to say that I am not trying to offend anybody, however, I will still share my personal experience.

It took me time to make good friends, but fashion kept me company, it may sound crazy to you, but the time that I’ve spent getting ready, picking out my outfits has always felt so therapeutic and soothing.

The way that I perceive fashion is so much more than wearing the latest trends, and it’s not based on the amount of high end and designer items that I own, I perosnally see it as a from of #selfcare.

It’s a way of living! Every day I wake up is a new chance for me to wear another outfit that makes me feel and look good. While some people think dressing up is a lot of effeort, and it’s done to impress others, my opinion is the total opposite because the only person I am willing to impress is myself.

So why fashion? because it’s empowering, and it boosted my confidence. Every style has a different impact on how I feel, and that’s the beauty of it. For instance the Characterful gown by Amoralle made me feel elegant, feminine and it embraced a different side of my personality.

Don’t forget that I like to hear from you so feel free to send me your stories and life experiences, let’s all share the love and support each other.

Stay safe, and love yourself.

The Green Coat

Hello, my gazelles, I hope that you are all doing well.

We all know that It is that time of the year when it is cold, depressing and dark, but I’ve got your back with a nice pop of colour to brighten your Autumn/Winter closet!

You’re probably seeing a lot of green in the high street, on Instagram and featured in fashion magazines, and to be honest with you green is definitely one of my favorites to give any outfit a touch of boldness and edginess.

I was walking around town with mama the other day, we went to Primark because “hello I am a student and I love me a good bargain lol”. I ended up finding a green coat that looked like it should be hung my closet with the rest of my coats, so I got it!

Wooden watches for all

Hello my gazelles, I hope you’re all doing well.

I’m back to you with one of my favorite accessory pieces.

Can you guess what it is?

Today we’re going to talk about watches and not any kind of watches.

I’m here to share with you my current obsession with wooden watches.

We all know that a good quality timepiece is a stylish useful accessory to be used to check the time and to give our wrist a touch of elegance.

I know a lot of people that don’t even change their watch batteries lol yet they wear them for the sake of fashion, which is totally fine!

I have recently been in love with my Jord watch, and it looks like I won’t be taking it off all summer and probably during the cold season too.

Here’s a list of 5 reasons why I love and highly recommend Jord’s wooden watches

  1. They are a perfect present for all sorts of occasions for him and for her

  2. They look stylish and trendy yet very elegant

  3. You can engrave the wooden box that your watch comes in( my favorite part), or even better, you have the option of inserting a meaningful engraving on the back of your watch (excluding the Cora collection)

  4. JORD watches provide a variety of different kinds of woods which will give you more options to choose from

  5. The prices are reasonable and aren’t as expensive as you might think, plus they have an international shipping service

My beautiful watch is from the Cora collection, it combines a nice pop of coral and a mix of zebrawood and rose.

Inglot, Newcastle, eldon square

Hello my gazelles, I hope you’re all doing well.

If you have been following me for years or even for months then you probably already know that am absolutely obsessed with Inglot cosmetics.

About three months ago I was lucky enough to receive an invitation from Inglot to attend the private event before the official store opening in #Newcastle @eldonsquare

Inglot planned two separate events, one of them was a masterclass hosted in the Sandman hotel. It was very well organized and we got to see different makeup looks done by different MUAs, and have honestly learned so much from them. They were very professional and each one had a different unique style of doing makeup, which I loved! By the end of the masterclass, we had some time to socialize, meet all the bloggers and beauty influencers as well as meeting the Inglot family. The event was unforgettable and so is the amazing goody bag. It was packed with products, no joke!

Don’t worry,  I am preparing a separate post about my favorite Inglot products including tips and tricks on how to use them in multiple ways.

The second event was a private pre-launch party where we got to see the store before everyone else. Of course, there was music, drinks, and some delicious cupcaaaakes !

The main highlight was meeting the one and only @janeinglot and her lovely family. I can’t describe to you how down to earth and a fun company they were.  I obviously had to take some selfies with them, which you’ll see down below.
