The names of the winners of the Rituals giveaway for UAE readers are at the end of the post.  For Pakistan there's a giveaway open with The Dhurrie Project on Facebook & Instagram, so enter and hopefully win, ok.

Had the best surprise of my life (moderate exaggeration) when N came back from his work trip early this morning, when I was actually expecting him back tomorrow. The bell rang at 6 am and I went to the door like a drugged puppy only to see his giant smiling face through the peephole. I broke through the door (again, slight exaggeration) and am going to be high throughout the rest of the day, thanks (despite the fact that he lied to me about his travel plans and I got played but this is the kind of cheating that is acceptable/recommended in relationships) // This flirt of a candle is from Bath & Body Works that I got into earlier this week; it's a great smell but too sweet for me so I'm waiting to finish it and pounce on my next one.

This new love of my life is from Rituals that I picked up this week (which I got tons of questions about on Snapchat last night, so guys this is that one). Rituals have a tiny makeup collection with an even tinier nailpolish inventory, but with the nicest colors. I got two, this brown and a deep red. This one's called Amber Stone and is AED 28. Definitely not as long lasting as Sally Hansen but application is kickass and color gorgeous. You can buy from Mall of the Emirates or their newly opened store at Burjuman Mall (opening Sep 3rd). UK and nearby regions can shop from here.

Early sushi dinner just for me while N was away.

Think some gardening is about to happen at my place shortly. Got some planting soil and fertilizer from Dubai Garden Centre this week and excited to give my plants some loving.

Bag situation in my bedroom currently.

Have a great weekend, guys.
