Fridays

Friday, April 01, 2016 The Desi Wonder Woman 13 Comments

If anyone's interested, the mannequin in my bedroom has undergone a clothing and location change. N and I have been hanging out in our guest room the last couple of days for no reason. Last night we had thai takeout and again went into the guest room for some show bingeing. There's something about switching up your routine from the regular and just because we were in a different room, I saw my place in a new light yesterday. The weather was just incredible; it was the howling-kind-of windy yet very calm, the windows were quietly vibrating and the whole apartment had nothing but fairy lights on. Each time I stepped out of the room for some random stuff, it hit me how different everything looked even though it was all the same. We ended up sleeping there and when I woke up at 5 am, it had started raining, the whole city seemed asleep (or maybe passed out, it was the weekend after all) and soft light from the neighboring buildings was coming in through the windows - it was monumental levels of peaceful. I felt blessed and grateful for the home I had and it was such a heartwarming reminder to not forget what I already have; it was all already there, just needed a change in perspective.  


New addition to the family.


Easily one of the most beautiful rings I've owned. They're from Aldo's new collection and come in a pack for just 60 AED, a no-brainer purchase.


I think I may have become a bit of a soap slut. Ever since I received this one, the regular ones are just not speaking to me. I love the one I'm using currently but I can't get my hands on it easily so I got these from Fab India (one of my favorite stores a few days ago to try out. The jury is still out on whether they were worth it or not, but am I excited to try them? Yes please. They were for 9 AED each.

Have a great weekend, guys.

  5. Hi. I have been following you since 5 months. I do not think I have ever seen your guest bedroom or have ever seen you without nail polish. :-D
    I have also been thinking of having white sheets in my bedroom. My furniture is black and white and color them is green like yours. Love!

    1. Hehe, I don't think I've ever seen myself without nailpolish :O I'm an addict. And I show my guest room sometimes on Snap, it's too much of a mess to appear on the blog yet :P I'm a fan of white bedding so I'm going to say go for it.

  6. have you tried HM jewelry and accessorize's? I love them too. HM often has amazing pieces and i like buy them off (as a complimentary thing while shopping and sometimes such amazing pieces are on such amazing sale.) and Im drooling over this new range by accessorize, they call is gold plated or something but they are delicate, better quality and so so beautiful!

    1. YUP. I love HM pieces. And I shop them the same way, haha. But I feel like I have enough jewelery so I stopped buying a while ago(unless someone sends it to me). But I specially love HM for their statement necklaces (Y)
