September blues

Happy Fall to all of my dear readers!
It goes without saying that autumn is my favorite season among all. I know that it's already October but September is the perfect description of the fall season.
Enough rambling about fall, leaves, vanilla Chai and comfy sweaters...I wanted to include some of my photographs in this post since I have not done so in ages. These were taken pretty much everywhere; Tunis, NYC, Austin TX, Laramie WY. I do admit that procrastination killed me and none of the photo-shoots I planned were done. Besides, I had a terrible past few weeks; swapping from an extreme euphoric state of mind to a bitter melancholic one within hours. It's called bipolar disorder. I may be diagnosed with that actually. I have no doubt that I am a very mentally unstable person so that does not surprise me.
Anyway, I hope I will get back to this blog with a new post, fresh photos and favorites to share.

Oh, I forgot to mention that this Chloe Spring Summer 2015 collection is simply the incarnation of PERFECTION, isn't?

Monthly favorites - September

Hello hello,

as I mentioned in my previous post, I will share with you dear readers the things I have been enjoying/liking and that ranges from fashion, art, decor, architecture, music, food, to random things as well.

First addition to my daily rituals: a splendid exquisite cup of coffee at the very beginning of the evening. Whether be it a Turkish coffee that smells like wonder or a french cafetière coffee that I freezes for a while and add cinnamon to finish it off. An amazing way to freshen up and feel a bit awake before heading out or doing what you're doing.

Perfectly said! This subtle transition between summer and fall beats magic in every existing way possible. I do feel it on every inch of my rusty bones ; the cool breeze and the warm sunlight, the cloudy melancholic sky, the dancing trees and the bright yellowish greenery of the grass, the smell of coffee in the early morning and that sudden caffeine rush that raises up your motivation and get you all ready for a new fresh day ahead. 

Music wise, what kept me going throughout the days are the following tracks. It varies from Deep House, Nu Disco, Indie Rock, UK Garage, and mostly Drum'n Bass. One of my favorite Drum'n Bass music these days are Wilkinson. Especially this track Wilkinson- Afterglow. Followed up by this progressive rock track to cool it down Anilah- Warrior. Of course, I cannot spend a day without some Alt-J tunes, I believe that his voice does something to me...something far surreal to be taken seriously. 

It's back to school season, which also mean, new clothes! And the picture down below will perfectly describe my tendencies this season; effortlessly stunning. 

As a Pinterest junkie, you cannot escape from making a DIY board and pinning great ideas and inspiring crafts all day long. Therefore, I have been wanting to change my room decor for so long, and seeing these great ideas have finally convinced me to do so. We'll see where that is going to take us, decor wise.

I believe these are the most important things that I have fell in love with lately. I will share with you guys more in the near future.
Hope all is well.


A January-May overview- Lake Havasu, AZ

Hello Loves,

It is officially back to school season! Excited, anyone? That's what I thought. I am personally not that eager to go back to my daily college life; lectures, lab work, coffees with friends in between, late afternoon outdoor hanging out, hustle and bustle of the city life and what goes with it from ground transportation until the beautiful sunset that I foresee whenever I get to my house. Topping all of that with a blissful cig-tea time on my rooftop to end the busy day. It actually seems quite interesting when I describe it this way, however, I think I do have September blues these days ; not feeling like doing anything at all.

Even though, my to-do-lists are growing longer and I didn't start to tick the tasks yet. As always, I will pull my rubbish together and enjoy my favorite the month the way I have always done it : plenty of photo-shoots and location scouting, beach picnic, new room decor and wardrobe organization, cutting my hair and starting a new eating diet.

A small flashback to these glorious days in Havasu. It was epic!

I am also taking this opportunity to not only show some of my past Spring break pictures in Lake Havasu Arizona, but also to share my favorite music of the month. I will include in another whole post my favorites things/wish-list/top-finds/clothing items/art/music/anything that I fell in love with lately.

So stay tuned!

Happy Eid people!

Hello and good afternnon dear readers. Today is a special day for the Muslim communities worldwide. It is Eif Al Fitr which is the celebration of the end of Ramadan (the ninth month of the year in the Islamic calendar.And it's a fast, held from sunrise to sunset carried out during this period). Which also means a lot of delicious food, family photos, nice cute outfits and some quite fun times with the friends and relatives. 
I hope you people are having a terrific day already.

P.S. I ate all of those sweets. No wonder I gained weight.

A January-May review: Spring Break- Las Vegas

Spring break...

At first, I had no obvious plans for spring break. I thought I am just gonna hang out in my dorm's fishbowl all day long, and be that "solitary international brunette left all alone in the dorms".
Hence, I have managed to join few people I barely knew on a road trip to Las Vegas, Arizona, and California. I got excited since it sounded surreal to me back at that time. But then, it was a complete disappointment because again, I should have never went places with bad company. I never learn from my mistakes. I thought I can handle myself when am alone, but it wasn't as easy as I expected it to be.
Nonetheless, I managed to capture some moments. All am left with are some memories that could have been better and brighter.

Vegas was incredible. But I don't think I would have enjoyed my stay for more than two days in there. You are somehow left with quite few options when you don't gamble, play poker, or forget your passport back in Laramie, WY. I have, nonetheless, enjoyed a long stroll on The Strip with my friend Valerie, taking long exposure pictures, people watching, chain smoking and Fat Tuesday drinking. That was quite delightful to say the least.

Next stop review will be...Lake Havasu.

A January-May overview:NYC

Hello dears,
I am just gonna go through the last 5 months really quick, with the most exciting happenings in my life. I have documented my trips of course, so pictures will be featured in this blog post.

February: NYC

"I disappeared as usual and now am back with a lot of updates. Last week I went to New York City. It was amazing but cold as hell. The city is huge, busy, vivid, varied but depressing. I have no logical explanations on why I felt this way towards NYC but it's the truth. You feel amazed and overwhelmed when you're walking down the streets with a fast pace, trying to desperately catch a cab or hide in a building's entrance and light your cigarette. It was frigid and sad. That's why I just wish I can visit it again with the right people and during more warmer months".
