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.
Hope you enjoy your weekend! See you next time..
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.
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.
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. 🙂
