Inject Your Wardrobe With Yellow

Being the quiet, shy, mousey sort of girl that I can sometimes be I tend to stay as FAR away from bright yellow as I can!

Neon pink, purple, green & even orange I can stomach but all-out yellow makes me shiver with fright. I envy those who can pull it off whilst looking cool, confident & suave.

Theoretically speaking – since I have dark hair & oliveish skin, yellow should look fantastic on me and so whats to fear? there’s just something about it which screams HI LOOK AT ME and makes me run a mile…however…whilst flicking through an arabic magazine I came across this beautiful outfit – j’adore – minus the earrings (hideous) but the dress oo la laa!

Dress from Blumarine

Granted, it’s not entirely yellow and the cynic in you will be screaming WOMAN can’t you see its black? but the splash of yellow is vibrant enough for me! I also love the contrasting lilac shadow – that’s not a combination I would have immediately thought of.

Can you brave yellow?
What’s your colour nemesis?

Art On Yo’ Face حنان النجادة

Loyal readers!

Surely you’ve been wondering where I’ve been? Eaten by a wild bear, fallen off the edge of the earth or just disappeared..bet you missed my random quirky posts…god knows I missed writing them 😦 but I was absolutely swamped in revision. Had my first exam…one down, three to go…

Today i’ve got a little something different for you. Yep thats right, to apologise for my absence I’m sharing an awesome make up video!Yes Make up, the secret arsenal of every intelligent woman…

Forget Bassam Fatouh & Hala Ajam…there’s a new face in town, and her name’s Hannan alNajjadah!

I’m on mobile so not sure if its embedded. The video is in Arabic however she does state the products used…My fave products have to be the MUFE bronzer used for contouring & the Shu Umera foundation

Ahhh I can barely stop myself from ordering all of the products mentioned online and seriously flashing some plastic, however, I shall control myself…-deep breaths-

Will you be trying this look?

Dress Like Dello Russo

If we thought H&M struck gold with the Marni Collaboration then Anna Del Russos’ in an entirely different league..

I did try to contain myself, to stop myself from jumping on the bandwagon, of being swept up in the inherent wave of thrilled bloggers all singing praise of Anna Del Russo & her collaboration with H&M…but what’s a girl to do?

When faced with the tantalising prospect of owning such glam accessories, one just has to succumb – for writing is all you can do to let out steam – to quell the ignited fire.

This golden Alice-In-Wonderland collaboration will include evening clutches, jewellery, shoes and a supposed trolley (travel suitcase in british lay-man terms).

Here’s the sneak peak pic that showcases some of the items to be..gold, gold & more gold..yay!

My absolute favourite is the Fayrouz (turqoise) bag (I mean the gold one on left with turk stone) it reeks of versace, wealth and societies elite…How lush would it look paired with a jet black abaya & the almost-but-not-quite overdone YSL arty ring?

I can’t wait! 😀

Since its the first time I’m using polyvore I don’t think I’ve done that bad!
Admittedly, its not awesome but there’s something we could work with…
or am I just kidding myself?

[edit] my mum just told me the dress is hideous and does not go in the slightest
she suggested a camel rust shade bordering on red; but won’t that be too much red?
