I’m sure most of you are familiar with INAYAH, a modest clothing brand which feature some beautiful occasion pieces alongside your every casuals, all the while ensuring you’re ‘covered’ but still look fab! (if you haven’t, check them out here!)
I picked out the Charcoal Tailored Maxi Dress as I’ve been on the hunt for a dark grey maxi and love the quality and style of this piece. The sizing options for almost all their items are so diverse, and this was the first time something’s been longer than me! (I’m quite tall for some of you that weren’t aware!) I usually opt for the longest length because it’s still never long enough, but pleasantly surprised when I tried it on and could actually even have done with it a tad shorter! Regardless of, this dress could totally be dressed up or down and will definitely become one of the staples in me closet!
Be sure to check them out on instagram and online and they also ship worldwide! yay! xo.
I was contacted by ALDO about a potential collab literally a few days before heading back to Kuwait and was gutted because there was no way to get postage to me in time etc. etc. but a million and one thank you’s to ALDO and the lovely Phoenix and Vivianne for being super accommodating and patient with Kuwait’s postage system for ickle me! x
Everyone needs a black flat in their life. And if its a black pointed flat with gold detail aand a bit of a gold heel, consider yourself #winning! I absolutely love how the criss-cross ankle strapping alongside the gold can instantly pull any look together and super excited to pair these with some other outfits!
ALDO are currently sporting a few super chic styles ranging from your everyday flat to the essential ankle boot, perfect transition pieces between autumn and winter! Be sure to follow them on instagram (@Aldo_Shoes) and pop into your nearest store for a sneaky peek! xoxo #AldoCrew #AldoMovesMe
Waist Bag: ASOS
I’m feeling quite accomplished atm having just done a bit of uni work which I’ve consciously been putting off since Thursday, and then Saturday, and then 8am this morning but yay go me! And now this mediocre sense of accomplishment (I really don’t deserve any credit for putting things off) is channelling itself towards a great ambitiousness in an attempt to be semi (or quarterly) consistent with me blog posts.
So here’s an idea!
We’re all creeps. Whether you admit it or not, we creep, stalk, keep tabs on, (whatever you want to call it) our friends, family, our friends friends who we’re not friends with, randoms on other parts of the world, people who inspire us etc. etc. etc. and we often come across photos, quotes, wordings, inspiration, photos which essentially speak to us for one reason or another and proceed to screenshot. I love my screenshot folder because I always know there’s something tucked away bound to remind me of love and light and happiness or God or make me smile or feel inspired or just have a really good day, and if you know me well enough you’ll also know how much I love to share these screenshots based on the one-too-many I’ve sent you in hopes of making you think or just to spread joy and warm fuzzy feelings! In the spirit of sharing and spreading those fuzzies, I’ve promised myself to post 4-6*ish of my favourite screenshots of the month kinda sorta every month in hopes of really just making your day! Enjoy! xo.
p.s.- also in need of cool name for this series if anyones got any brilliant ideas?!x
Once upon a time I went through a watch phrase, building a pretty alright collection of the general tones, gold, silver, white, black (never did purchase a rose gold although it was on my list!) and was coincidentally thinking to meself a couple weeks ago that I haven’t purchased a new one in ages!
As fate would have it, I received this beauty from Harvey Nichols (Kuwait) who now stocks Larsson & Jennings. Founded in 2012, Larsson & Jennings is a Swiss Made watch brand reimagining classic design through contemporary craftsmanship and style, creating harmony between art and precision. Their watches exude this super chic yet minimalistic aesthetic which can easily be dressed up or down. The brand sports three collections, Lugano, Saxon, and Norse; the one I’ve got on is the 40mm Lugano I believe! Be sure to check them out online here and if you create an account you’re granted access to a sale which is on until the 3rd of October. Larsson & Jennings is now available at Harvey Nichols in the Avenues (Kuwait) so def stop by next time you’re out for a shop! xo.
So Miss Iman and I ventured off to Cyprus for Eid which was beautiful. I had another trip half planned but she kinda sorta sold me on the idea of beaches and tanning and sunshine and that pretty much did it (I really don’t ask for much!)
I don’t want to get into too much detail, but we rented a car and essentially road-tripped along the coast which was exhilarating to say the least. Good old google maps made navigating a whole lot easier and having a car definitely allowed for more sightseeing and freedom to stop wherever we wanted on a complete whim! Hotels were booked as each day progressed, literally the morning of, just because! Flew into Larnaca via Lebanon (not a fan already purely based on my airport experience) and within 30-40 minutes, Kalimera Cyprus!
Started in Larnaca, worked our way through Limassol and stumbled upon a random secluded beach stop which we came back for. Spent a day in the mountains in Miliou where we nearly got into an accident on the way but the drive up and through the mountains was beautiful. Eid was spent in Pafos and I woke up extra early to catch the sunrise which was one of those heartwarming soul sessions that you know I love x also jumped the fence to get into an abandoned Turkish masjid because a masjid had to be visited on Eid one way or another! Did some tourist archaeological exploring there, and visited a couple monasteries, one of which was built into the mountain which was pretty neat! Next we were off to Protaras and good old Ayia Napa and visited the infamous Cape Greco which we hiked up super sharp rocks and braved the wind to get super cool photos lol I have never ever ever seen water as clear as I did in Protaras and at Cape Greco! Pictures do it no justice, but wallah the clarity was subhanallah! and we went parasailing! yay!! it was my first time and soaring over the coast with beautiful water and coastline beneath your feet is just one of those moments you’ll never forget! Miss Iman also faced her fears and sang karaoke in public which we were all super proud of! and then it was back to Larnaca where we visited Hala Sultan Tekke, which wikipedia calls a ‘Muslim shrine’, so we’ll leave it at that, but you also know that I love masjids in different countries and the peace and serenity that comes with entering such scared space etc. etc. so yes. My heart and soul was content! There was this open compound space right beside the masjid which kinda sorta acted like a cat sanctuary; apparently the general public uses it as a drop off for strays or cats they no longer want as they know/assume that the caretakers of the masjid are obliged by God to look after the animals and not be cruel to them, and Miss Iman was essentially in heaven. So many cats and kitties and cuteness overload and the sun began to set and it was yet another soul warming moment for the books x
All in all it was a much needed relaxing getaway to an underrated part of the world where Allah hooked us up in terms of hotel upgrades and his colour schema when putting the world together was/is just so freaking on point mashallah subhanallah alhamdulillah x people were incredibly friendly and approachable and being able to smile and wave at everyone and engage in conversation with random strangers is something I realize I miss and take for granted when I’m back Kuwait! Enjoy the pictures, know that none of them do the country any justice, and be sure to add it to your list of travels in the future inshallah! xoxo
