Friday & Ma’rockiN

Friday is officially the first day of the weekend here in the Middle East and probably my favourite day of the week for obvious reasons! It’s usually a day for catching up on emails, sitting out in the sun and eating nice food. I’m also planning to finally attack my makeup studio with gusto today as I can’t actually look at the boxes anymore, never mind find anything in there!

As for makeup, hair and skincare today, I decided to keep things pretty and easy. I treated my hair to a mask first thing this morning, ran some volumising mousse from The Body Shop through it and then let it dry naturally (which took about 5 minutes in this weather). I went down the easy route with skincare and makeup too; a bit of my current favourite moisturiser, MAC Indianwood Paint Pot, Naked Palette and then a generous application of Hoola Bronzer. To keep things from looking too neutral I opted for a nice bright lipstick, Show Orchid by MAC.

I also got my hands on some new jewelry this week which I am beyond excited about. I was at Khaleda Rajab Couture on Wednesday evening for the launch of Ma’rockiN accessories, a fabulous new line of earrings, necklaces and bracelets by Bahraini based Moroccan designer Fatim Elkadiri. There was some amazing stuff there and so it was a little bit difficult to not get carried away!

The scarf necklace above is super cool and everyone was mooning over it on the night, I think it might have to be my next purchase. I say next purchase because I decided, after about 5 minutes of oohing and aahing, to go for a bead bracelet and some super cool earrings, which you can check out below.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
