March’s beauty favorites

Nivea 5.jpg

It’s spring time, which usually means dry skin. For cleansing and moisturizing our skin, we use Nivea’s products. A brand that’s been around for 100 years, Nivea is a timeless product line. We’ve witnessed our mothers and even our grandmothers using Nivea products over the years without disappointment.

Since we love this brand so much, we wanted to share our favorite products from our daily skin care routine.

Less judgment, more love

DSC_9749.jpg

Let’s face it, women are always being judged. We’re judged on our level of education; whether we’re married, or not married; if we have kids or if we don’t have kids; whether we have a girl or a boy; if we’re stay at home moms, or working moms; if we’re overdressed or underdressed; if we’re too thin or too fat; if we follow the trend or if we stand out; if we express our emotions or if we hide them… and the judgments go on and on.

Frankly, we’re sick of it.

January’s beauty favorites

There’s something addictive about beauty products- our collection seems to be expanding and since we run out of stuff so quickly, we are constantly shopping for more! We wanted to take a break from shopping this month since we exhausted our bank accounts throughout the holidays, but there are some beauty essentials that naturally seem to be exempted –  we call them the basics…

Here are some of the basics we picked up this month.

December is a very special month for us. First of all, it’s the season of giving and celebrating with our loved ones. Second of all, we get a glimpse of winter in the desert and we get to flaunt our boots, the few times it rains! 

While on a rampage to buy the perfect gifts for our loved ones, we happened to pick up a few things for ourselves too! Because who said we can’t buy ourselves gifts? 🙂

Here are some of our newest beauty additions…

Rara’s winter wonderland wedding

 

j (213)

The best day of my life was the day I married my best friend. I had always dreamt of having a winter wedding just because I love the winter season and the month of December. So I planned for a winter wonderland in one of the most beautiful hotels in Lebanon: Phoenicia Beirut.

For all the winter brides out there, yes you probably have to do an indoor wedding, but that won’t take away from the beauty and creativity that outdoor weddings have! In fact, there’s a lot of creativity involved in transforming an indoor venue. Have a look at how I transformed my wedding ballroom into a winter wonderland!

The holidays are a great time to reflect on all things appreciated. This year, we’re grateful for the fact that we launched our blog, which has brought a lot of positivity and joy into our lives. We’re grateful for all the lovely people we met in our journey so far, and who’ve inspired us to chase our dreams. We’re also thankful for good health, which is the most important thing for us within ourselves and our loved ones.

To celebrate the holidays, we enjoyed a quiet night in where we caught up on life, and indulged in a delicious holiday dinner. Our dinner was prepared by one of our favorite restaurants in the UAE: Shakespeare and Co.

November’s beauty favorites

IMG_3071

November is a great month to be in the UAE, the weather starts to cool down a little bit, and you feel a nice breeze after a long hot summer. Plus, the best part about November is that December is around the corner and that’s usually the time we shop shop shop! Since we didn’t really buy any new products this month, we thought we’d highlight some of our not-so-new beauty products that we love.

October’s beauty favorites

IMG_2923

We’ve had a crazy busy month, a lot of work and studying, and a lot of new mom stress and responsibilities. Stress can really affect your outer beauty, damaging your skin, and stripping you away from time spent pampering and taking care of yourself. You go from having that extra twenty minutes in the morning to apply your makeup, to scavenging for 5 minutes to fix yourself before you begin your day. Those days when you’re too stressed or busy, you just need a quick fix in the morning to look semi-normal and hide the fact that you stayed up all night studying or caring for your baby.

Here are the products we’ve been using for a five-minute fix before embarking on a stressful day ahead.
