in kuwait, when we say it’s hot, we mean it’s hot. the temperature goes beyond 122 degree fahrenheit. so i like to carry around this bottle of water. it’s basically a facial mist. you just spray it on your face and you’ll feel better. (it’s just plain water that we drink.)

next i like to carry around plastic bottles perfumes. usually i get these as gifts from bath and body works so might as well use them. it’s not really great to spray perfume while sweating because it makes the smell worse. so these are great to just throw them in your handbags.

i don’t know about you guys, but my skin tends to get very oily. and it’s not the greatest thing in the world, so i always have to have these in hand. oil blotting sheets, i have talked about them multiple times because they’re my life.

since this is a beauty blog, i decided to throw in a lipstick. this lipstick is by tarte. i wasn’t really impressed by it when i got it, because when i put it on, it barely showed. but then like 5 months later i decided to give it a try again, and it was the best color ever. it goes on very smooth, and it moisturizes your lips. it is a light pink color which i think is great for spring / summer.

my polaroid camera. i barely use this camera but when i do, i take about a 100 pictures. since summer means vacation, and vacation means (to some of us) traveling, we have to take good pictures. i think polaroids take the perfect pictures if you’re going for a tumblr-ish look.

thank you for reading, and comment down below what your summer essentials are. hope you enjoyed reading, all the love.

ps. thank you for 100 followers! i love you all.

Sunglasses Collection

summer is almost here, which means i need to bring out one of my most important essentials. sunglasses. these sunglasses were not just bought all at once, i collect them over years.

these first ones are by dior. they’re not too big or too small, they are just the right size. i am obsessed with them. as you can see, there are so many small scratches here and there and its because i have dropped it multiple times, but they are still in great condition.

these next ones are from topshop, i don’t really wear them but i decided to add them in because they look adorable and very chic. maybe one of you guys wear these kind of sunglasses, so i decided to add them in.

i’m not sure where these are from but i’m going to guess they’re from pacsun. i have been always obsessed with the whole cat winged sunglasses, and i found these adorable ones and i just had to buy it. they’re so amazing,  and is still in great condition. (some shops have horrible sunglasses that get ruined the next month, but these are great.)

these are from henri bendel (i am obsessed with that store), and what really caught my eye was the simplicity of these sunglasses. they have these small rhinestones across the top of the sunglasses, which gives it the elegant style. so if you’re looking for something simple yet elegant, these are the one.

and lastly, these are from chanel. the same as the last ones, they are simple yet elegant. it has that light purple effect to the lens, which i really like. and the arms of the sunglasses, have two pearls on each side which looks very classy and vintage. the only problem was, i didn’t buy it from chanel, but from another store. when i opened the box, one of the pearls have fallen off. i just superglued it on and it’s all okay.

thank you for reading, and tell me which is your favorite sunglasses and i might check them out. all the love.
