Wander, Weather and Wine

November 24, 2013

Hey home girl, hope you are well. I just wanted to touch base real quick and let you know what I've been up to. Well, the big words for me at the moment are jet lagged, winded, under the weather but mostly thankful. A nasty ass flu took possession of me three weeks ago and it just won't exorcise ....completely anyway. It's going in circles between the three of us for quite some time now. To make the status quo not any better, I also had to deal with an annoying tooth situation for a while before I could do something to fix/heal/recover.  I'm usually not this fragile but life is throwing me some curves right now. But this too shall pass....Welp!!!

D. I. Y - Winter Scrub

November 8, 2013

Every once in a while I take a little time off for pampering.  As much as I love my family and spending time with them, my 'Me' time is also one of the 'non- negotiables' in my life. It can become quite a rare event because there is always something or someone more important. But some days I just channel my inner suffragette and take care of myself.  Lately, I've been feeling abundantly creative. So I swung by my kitchen and found the ingredients to make an all natural body scrub from scratch. Not sure if I'm the first to think of this concoction but not a care in the world.  I'm really excited to share my rendition with you - drumroll please - The Winter Scrub ! This is as an excellent exfoliator that preps your skin for the brewing cold by leaving it softer, cleaner and refreshed.   And the smell is just so exotic....woot woot. I think if Princess Jasmin wore a fragrance, this is what it would have most likely smelled like, ha ha. Thumbs up for Disney. It's also a very thoughtful and interesting gift idea for family/ friends for the holiday season. Let's get started.....

Haul - Beauty, Skin Care & Make-up

November 4, 2013

As I told you earlier, I was in Dubai for little less than a week recently. And no trip to this world city is complete without some damage, nothing ridiculous! Now that I have recovered a bit from over stimulation and a nasty flu, I thought I would share with you some of the Beauty/ Skin Care hotshots that I hauled gracefully all the way back home, to Oman. I'm not always consumption driven and hardly shop for momentary feel-good buzz, but I don't really see the point in lusting over something for ages and holding back from owing it when it right before your eyes, if you are not on a budget. I won't even know what a 'wish list' is because my determination is stronger than that.
Many of these products are newbies who have made the cut to my vanity. So, I will do a 'touch and go' on those for now and harp out a detailed review on the best of the bunch, once the verdict is reached. And others are repurchases of 'oldies but goodies' that have withstood the test of time and expectations.
