August 2014 Link Loves!


Yet another month has passed by!. I really hope you had an amazing month. I fulfilled one of my wishes this month and that was to visit Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world :). Then I spent some quality time with my parents when they came to visit me recently. We went shopping to Mega Mall in Sharjah.

Another really exciting thing is that my hair is now completely back to how it was look-wise before I rebonded my hair, five years ago!. The first time I rebonded my hair was in 2009 (Want a detailed post?. Click here). I rebonded a second time in 2010.

As years went by, the new hair seemed wavier than before and the bottom half of my hair was still straight. It’s not a really neat look. I have always sported long hair and I didn’t want to cut a big chunk off in one go. I kept letting my hair grow then trimming it and repeating this process. I would have an inch cut off every 2 or 3 months, thus getting rid of the straight [damaged] hair but at the same time, keeping my hair length the same throughout. This month, the last of the straight hair was trimmed off!. I am not saying my wavy hair is damage free now. Of course not. Hair strength and damage wise, I don’t think I can ever go back to my virgin hair but hey a girl gotta keep trying right?. So, I will keep looking after it by oiling regularly, applying deep condition masks and all that.

Alright, on to my August favorites:

1) Camila of Titi Crafty has created these gorgeous DIY Modge Podge Wooden Jewelry boxes and done a complete tutorial on it. They are so perfect and pretty. I love the pattern combinations on each box. Check them out!


2) Sarah of Blend N Smack has done a post on how you can turn an eye shadow into a lipstick. She created some really different colors with it. Do check it out!


3) Daania of Serendipity Happens is in Sri Lanka at the moment on vacation. She visited this picturesque place called Sembuwatha lake. I am in love with the photos!. I hope I go there one day <3. Check out more pictures from the post.


4) Chrys of Oh Chrys! did a post highlighting the cons of being an inactive blogger. With the help of memes that she created, she drives home the message clearly!. If you are not into blogging frequently, you got to read this!

  1. Ok her blue lips are just gorgeous…
    congrats on the link on michael todd’s! awesome links…oh and that just reminded me!! i forgot to do the lip post πŸ˜‰ Im just not a makeup artist so it doesn’t look good and i dont’ know how to stop the bleeding (on the lips) LOL

    • I completely agree with you!. Love Sarah’s blue lipstick look.. Thanks Sal.. I am so happy MTTO linked my post on their site. Hey, you can use a liner to stop the bleeding. You don’t have to necessarily show the lip swatches, if you aren’t comfortable with that!. You can talk about your fav lip products and maybe do hand swatches. I would love u to do that tag πŸ™‚

  2. Awe, I’m glad you liked my post and thank you for sharing it <3
    and thank you Sally!! Like Naznin said, use a lip liner or a lip primer and when you are done clean the edges of your lips with some concealer. Works like a charm!

    Congratz Naznin on all your mentions! I wish you all best! You deserve it <3


  3. Thanks Sarah and Naz! <3 I use concealer for my eyebrows! Never thought to use it for my lips πŸ˜› Good idea! I will definitely try that and I will definitely do that post up for you babes…I've used lip liner but i just feel like i look like a clown…lol i need to go to makeup school! xox cheers

  4. Thanks so much my lovely friend for including my Mod Podge Boxes. It really makes me happy that you love them! Hope you are having a Fab week!
