Casual Friday

20170630_105759

I love Friday here as it is weekend in the Gulf states. Today we decided to head on our favourite restuarant in Adliya area called Coco. If you are in Bahrain you should visit this cosy place. The food is so good and affordable. I decided to wear my new sandals and new skirt which I got during Spring sale. This Prada saffiano bag was quite a few years old and it lost its structure due to careless care! But I still very much love it. My sister got this bag for me while she was in Paris.

Today I also practiced new method of applying make-up learning from some gurus on youtube tutorials. It is amazing how a few techniques can totally transform you into different looks.

A little black lace dress and a bow bag

Hello everyone,

I had a long holiday since the holy month of Ramadan ended on this Sunday here in the Gulf. Eid holiday started and ended on Wednesday. However the great sale season is on for another 2 weeks. I got two new handbags from Balenciaga and YSL. I will post their pics later when I use them. ^_^

On the first two days of Eid, some of our ASEAN colleague would host open house reception to mark the end of Ramadan. I went to the open house of the Indonesian Ambassador on 26 June 2017. I love love indonesian food like nasi gorang. On that day I picked the little black lace dress and teamed it with my Carolina Herrera audrey bow bag. It was pre-owned bag with good condition. Love it. CH brand isnt so popular in my home country but very well known here in the Gulf. This vintage bow bag is so cute. It is not too big but you can put a bit of things on it. It is a nice sized everyday use.

Thanks for reading.

Review my recent purchased hand bags

20170608_090952

Hello everyone,

Lately I don’t know if it was my unknown source of stress over something I don’t even realise. I believe whatever it was it drove me to be crazy enough to go on a shopping spree which last for a while. Recently I purchased 3 pre-owned hangbags which I dont know why I bought them. Haha. But at the end I do like them and I didn’t pay much for them.

My first purchase was MCM revisible shopper medium size in congac colour. I like it because it is not too big and it comes with a small clutch which can be used separately. It was very new since the pre owner didnt use it much. I paid for $ 248 I guess it was a good price.

At first I was reluctant about buying it but when I tried I like it and think it suits me.

My second purchase was Carolina Herrera Audrey Bow bag. I am a big fan of this designer but only purchased two belts from the brand. I found this black bow bag online and decidedto meet up to see the bag. When I saw it I like it so I decided to give it a try. The bag is pretty old around 5 years but it has a few wrinkles which will be difficult to fixed. It is cute but it doesnt hold much stuff. It is more like casual day out but not for a busy mummy day. The bag has been authenticated by CH shop in Bahrain.

I havent used it yet. Plan to use it on a grocery day out tomorrow. I will ask my husband to take some pics for me.

My last crazy shopping for bag was another CH holiday bag in brown. I love it and will collect it on Sunday. I am sure it will be good chpice for my trip to Europe at the end of July.

Writing an entry now makes me realised of my stress source, my selfish colleague. He is full of himself and sometimes it is too much for me to bear. Anyway, hope you like my purchases.

White on peaceful Saturday

Oh dear, I am not pregnant btw. This dress I got a while ago. Didnt think it made me look like a pregnant woman. LOL. When I tried it on, I guess the light in the fitting room made thing look different and better than in reality. Anyway I wore it to do grocery shopping at the nearby mall. I thought I look amazing but on camera I looked the other way. I just wanna show you the look that should not be included in a do list for a boxy figured girl who doesn’t have a slim waist line. However I thought the combination of the colour wasn’t so bad. I carried my colourful Paul Smith purse to add colour to my plain outfit.

Time to cook my dinner so gotta run now. See you next time and thanks for reading. 🙂

Denim and black is a good combination

20170527_111808

The first day of Ramadan here started from Saturday,  I took Kevin to an indoor playground because the weather was so hot. I decided to wear denim on black trousers so I create a casual and chic looking (well that was I thought). I love this rainbow handbag which I got from Paul Smith shop in Bahrain. The colourful stripes added so much fun in the look. A pair of flats were from Cath Kidson. I do love the design but they are not for heavy duty mum day out. They were comfortable but got so many creases or wringle lines after a few times I wore them so I don’t quite like the look now. They look very old and torn. >_<

We didn’t do much on that day because we didn’t want to be thirsty or hungry. Ramadan means all restaurants are closed during the day. Food and drinks are not allowed to be consumed in the public places including inside your car (if being noticed you can be fined). But for children they can drink and eat in public area so it wasn’t that bad for Kevin.

Paul Smith black for a meeting day

20170525_090851

Today I have a meeting to officially launch a project with the press so I picked up my Paul Smith black dress which I purchased a few months ago. I love the design and the fabric that lies neatly on the body and helps creating some figure. I also wear my new pair of earrings from Guess.

Tomorrow is a weekend here. I can’t wait to enjoy time with my family after a week full of full workingload.

Have a good day.

Polka dot again because I love it

Today I came to work in a a black dress on top of a polka dot blouse. I love the combination for the summer even though black doesn’t seem like a summer colour. I wore my new pair of kitten heels which I very much adore the design. The shoes came on sale with price tag of $8 so I got two pairs, one in black and one in warm coral.

Ramadan will start in a next few days. Things will be very quiet during the day time. All restaurants will be closed at day time and opened at night. The heat will make me dizzy and hungry more. Respect muslims for their strong determination. It takes a lot of courage and patience not to eat when the summer strikes you hard.

Today they expect it to be upto 42 degree during the day time. Hope the heat will not make me sick. There are a few people at my work got running nose amidst the hot temperature.

Take care.
