Beauty Haul basics from Madrid

Feb 14th, 2016 Fashion & Beauty nahid

2 weeks ago I jumped into a plane to Madrid to check the sales in the fashion capital of Spain (and thanks to Ryanair, flight prices are ridiculous). For this time, I was careful into choosing good winter basics and not falling into quick trends or cheap/low-quality garments. I followed the same principles in beauty shopping and tried to be prudent. Long story short, this…

Outfit of the day – Sunset

Jan 9th, 2016 Fashion & Beauty nahid

I arrived home after work to be greeted by this sunset! The golden light was so soft and aureate that I rushed to take some OOTD picture. Winter has been kind for us so far in Morocco, so I only wore a chunky knit with a pencil skirt and heeled ankle boots. Can you spot the cows on the background? I feel so grateful to…

This year the weather is still in the mild side for a November, even for Moroccan standards! But, unlike the past years, I’m anticipating this time and already luring toward getting some cosy coats and knits.

Summer skincare routine

As we are living the last days of 2015’s summer (dramatic, I know, sorry!), I have made up my mind about the proper skincare routine for these hot, sunny days and humid nights (I live near the beach in a constant 88% humidity level). My skin is combination oily & dry depending on my sun/salt exposure, my level of hydration and my location on earth,…

Fairy fingers – Rabat’s best nail salon

Jul 2nd, 2015 Fashion & Beauty nahid

A girl gotta pamper herself right? When I’m done with all the stuff I have on my plate I love to wind up with a good me-time. The one that I am most fond of are pedicures. My favorite place in Rabat is a fresh breath of air straight from Switzerland called “Label’ Suisse“. They are one of the best places in Rabat with state…

Smooth lips

Sep 10th, 2014 Fashion & Beauty nahid

With all the stress of modern life and the elements (surf, wind, salt) of my surfing life, I often find myself with dry, dull and dark lips (for the anecdote, my mom once thought I was smoking, so she started following me to my surf session to check if I was influenced by my fellow surfers, but of course, never has a cigarette found way…

My spring favorites for weekends

Apr 22nd, 2014 Fashion & Beauty nahid

I don’t usually put on makeup on weekends, but when I do, these are my “to-go” favourites: 1. La Roche-Posay Hydreane BB Creme in medium, for my already tanned face from spring surf sessions, offers a light covering and evens the skin, 2. Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder in 02 for an enhanced natural-looking bronzed face, 3. Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat in 2 an instant pick-me-up for…
