October 2014 Link Loves!

Hiya!

How was your month?. I spend most of it in India, on vacation. This time, I spent a lot of time at home rather than traveling, seeing relatives and shopping. So when compared to my vacations in the past, this one was pretty dull. But still, there was plenty of rain to sit and watch!. Loved that part.

For my birthday, I had a pretty lovely day. My husband wished me right in the morning, which came as a surprise since last time he had forgotten it :P. We cut a small cake and then had dinner from outside. It was really a very sweet day ♥

OK so it’s Halloween!. Happy Halloween to those of you who celebrate it. Here is a funny pic I came across online 🙂

September 2014 Link Loves!

Hiya guys!

How was your September?. Mine was pretty hectic I should say. Preparing to go to India, blogging day and night to schedule posts ahead of time.. Man!. I dunno how I did it :P. It was my husband’s birthday on the 21st and my family came over to celebrate it together. They brought a gorgeous cake too :). It was the Praline Berry Splendor ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins. Yum!

My husband won a cricket tournament and brought home a massive trophy. I just had to share it with you guys. I am way too proud of him right now ♥. Also, kudos to his team for being awesome!

I became extremely happy when a friend of mine who doesn’t follow a skincare routine, decided to get all the basics to start a routine, after reading my skincare basics post. It’s so delightful to be able to inspire someone to take action! She shared a picture of the products she got and I am so thankful to her for sending it my way:

August 2014 Link Loves!

Hey!

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!

June 2014 Link Loves!

Hello!

What’s up you guys?.. How has your month of June been?. I hope it was awesome. The holy month of Ramadan has begun and I am thrilled about it. Last year’s Ramadan was completely messed up since I came down with chicken pox :(. It was a tough time.

This month has been good for me. My mom came to stay with me and we did some damage at Bath and Body Works :). She also got me a gorgeous wristlet and a stunning but simple chain from Aeropostale. It’s my first time owning anything from that brand, so I am stoked!

Aero wristletThis is straight off my Instagram. Do follow me there!

20140626_204638This pic doesn’t do it justice. It looks fabulous IRL. Also a tag on it says ‘1987’ on one side, which is when the brand came about but also happens to be my birth year! and on the other side, it says ‘AERO’. Oh am in love!

Alright, on to my favs for this month:

1) Laurie of Huggable Friends reviewed a handmade Indian journal on her site. Not only was the review written very nicely, the journal is just so gorgeous. It’s made by Vishruti, in Mumbai. She owns an Etsy store too.

2) Irene of Drab To Fab did a detailed review of the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. She also has mentioned how to use it with different types of products and also how to wash it. I have heard so many good things about it so far. Maybe some day in future, I will give it a try. She bought it from iHerb btw.

3) Nirvana of Nirvana’s Pocketful, did a post showing various bookmarks that she would like to own and I couldn’t help but fall in love with some of those!.

May 2014 Link Loves!

Hey guys!

How was your May?. I am into decluttering, organizing and all that but truth be told, I am not someone who scrubs down the printer, washing machine, fridge etc on a regular basis. So, at the start of this month itself I did that, for a change!. Man, my washing machine looks brand new now and my fridge is literally gleaming!. Seriously, unless you do it, you won’t understand how much dust settles on these household stuff. I urge you to do it too. Your home will have a prettier look 🙂

This month, my parents went on a trip to Indonesia!. Five nights in Bali and two in Jakarta. It’s so beautiful there and I thought I’ll share some pictures with you..

The money conversion is nuts really!. 1 UAE dirham is equivalent to 3178 Indonesian Rupiah (IDR)!. My parents had decided to take AED 2K with them which is roughly IDR 6 million!. I was thinking “Jeez, they would need another bag to carry the money!”.. Haha :D. Everything over there is pretty expensive. A SIM card itself cost IDR 150K!. A grand buffet costs about IDR 355K. Turns out 6 million wasn’t enough to last them a week there. My father used his credit card on top of it. I seriously can’t believe it!. The notes are of a high denomination so paying such huge amounts is easy.

They even went to a coffee factory where they saw Kopi Luwak, which is the most expensive coffee in this world. Here is the pic of the Luwak and that coffee!

IMG-20140531-WA0017-1This is Luwak, the civet like mammal that plays a vital role in the making of this coffee!

IMG-20140531-WA0019-2This 50 gms pack of Kopi Luwak costs IDR 180K!

Here are some stuff they bought for me :

c76d5421-393b-4841-a63e-5ae325c225ff

  • A nice handmade basket (it has a single partition inside it). Costs a whopping IDR 270K!
  • A packet of Durian chips which is my all time favorite. You get them here in UAE only when the DSF is going on.
  • A packet of Coffee choc, which consists of chocolates with coffee beans inside them. It tasted amazing and very unique.
  • A handmade soap smelling on Ylang Ylang which costs about IDR 15K!.
  • A pack of incense sticks. The packaging is so adorable and probably handmade too!
  • Some hotel amenities like shampoo, body lotion, shower gel and soap because I love teeny weeny stuff like that.

If you are planning to go to Bali, I would suggest you convert atleast 3K Dirhams for shopping, spending on spa and food over there. Overall, my parents loved the experience.

Alright, that’s how my month of May was. Onto my favorite posts of the month :

1) Camila of TitiCrafty, made this amazing and healthy walnut oatmeal cookies that looks crunchy and yum. It’s perfect for those who are health conscious but yet craves for something special.

April 2014 Link Loves!

Hey guys!

Hope you guys had a lovely April. I had quite a nice one. It was my father’s 61st birthday this month :). Touchwood!. In February, when I took a cake to my parent’s home for Valentine’s day, my father mentioned to me that he absolutely loved it because though it’s chocolate goodness, it doesn’t seem overly sweet. Being a diabetic, he is concerned about his sugar intake. He had asked me more about it like where I bought it and all that. It was very clear that he loved it. So, for his birthday, I got the same cake again :). He was totally surprised. It’s a chocolate milk cake from Hot Breads, Sharjah.

20140417_155314Also, I bought a new mobile this month!. I am not crazy about changing my mobiles often like how some people are and I am so not a gadget freak. So, after three years of being faithful to my Nokia X2-00, I moved on to Nokia X, which is the latest Android phone from Nokia.

X2 to X I went for a totally funky color – GREEN!. There were many other color options. I think this mobile is really nice. The scrolling and swiping movements are really smooth and overall it’s very user friendly. For a latest Android phone in the market, you would be surprised to hear it’s price. It’s AED439 only!. I bought it from Carrefour, Mirdif City Center, Dubai.

Onto my April favorites :

1) Camila of Titi Crafty did a post on how to make Family Style Homemade Hash browns and it literally had me drolling over the pix!!. I love Hash browns from McDonalds though I have never tried making it at home. This would be a great recipe that anyone could try out.

Hash-Brown2) Sarah of Blend N Smack did her skin care routine for clearing acne. I found the routine to be really nice and thorough.

Skincarebio3) Heather Von St. James has launched a page to spread awareness about Mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that develops from cells of the mesothelium, the protective lining that covers many of the internal organs of the body. Mesothelioma is most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos. Heather was exposed to asbestos from her father’s work jacket when she was a little girl. After 30 years, she was diagnosed with this cancer. She was given only 15 months to live. However, she beat the odds and she is still here eight years after she was diagnosed of it!!. She is a true survivor. She launched this page to spread awareness about this dangerous form of cancer and I would love it if you check out the page and also spread word about it!

Heather4) Monica of Impressions of a Princess had the chance to live out a dream every girl would have dreamt about, after watching Ariel, in Walt Disney’s Little Mermaid!. I simply couldn’t believe it. It’s just so stunning and such a unique experience. It took place at Manila Ocean park, Philippines.
