Dubai Bloggers Meet and Greet ..

Hello ladies!
Happy new year!
Wow that was a pretty hectic   interesting year!!.. It had its ups and downs, joys and moments of sadness but "tout EST Bien qui finit Bien "(All's Well That Ends Well) alhamdolillah!

Yesterday was one of the best days of 2013 , alhamdollillah then thanks to the beautiful Mara Mostafa and Dr . Deanna Khalil ,the two gorgeous lady bloggers who thought of the genius idea of hosting a 'Meet and Greet" for some of the best bloggers from UAE , GCC and from all around the world !

The event took place at the Dubai Ladies club, on a perfect December afternoon..... Great weather, beautiful venue and exceptional company, the perfect combo that makes "good time"
I'm so glad I finally met some my favorite bloggers and YouTubers  that I've been following and watching for a long time, but I'm even happier because I made new friends..

Without further ado these are some pictures I took, I wanted to take more but I was too busy chatting  with all those beautiful ladies I met.....

The setting was very simple and elegant, in the open air with a beautiful sea view.

The event was sponsored by a variety of innovative new companies ...

and many more ...

Mara mustafa and  Deaanna  khalil  "hostess with the mostest."s

Project 10 Pan

Hello ladies !
you know when you're get addicted to beauty products/makeup and start buying an piling up products until one day you find yourself not using half of your collection ?!!
Well that "STOOP" moment happened to me a few weeks ago , so i decided to start a "Project 10 pan ".
Laura from " Buy Now, Blog Later " is the genius behind the idea of the "Project 10 pan " , the aim is to hit 'pan' (the metal bit) or finish ten products before allowing yourself to buy anymore. simple right ?
My list consists of different kinds of products , hair products , makeup , and a perfume .
these are products i don't like or i want to get rid of ,  quite the contrary , some of these products are essentials for me and i just want to use them up to get new ones ^_^.

  • KELLY VAN GOGH  WONDERLUST  Hair Color Protecting & Illuminating Tonic (i got it in a glambox / don't like it a lot won't buy it again )
  • Dove Damage Therapy Intense Repair Overnight Treatment  ( i like it so far ) .

  • NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation ( My all time favorite foundation , but i'm turned down by the packaging i broke into a million pieces i had to duct tape it ! i want to finish it to get a new one ).
  • L'Oreal - UV PERFECT Longlasting UVA/UVB Protector SPF50  ( the original one is my favorite sunscreen i count on it to protect my skin and my skin loves it , a few month ago i picked this one up at the airport thinking there was only one type when it was to start using it i found out that it is a tinted sunscreen and i feel even more in love with this range , now i can't find it anymore and want to use it farewell :-( ) .
  • Benefit Erase Paste ( the best concealer in the wold ).
  • Neutrogena Shine Control Primer (Not my favorite primer ).

Benefit Life on the A List (great lip gloss but the color doesn't flatter my skin tone)

Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Mascara  (it make my eyelashes super long and thick but I'm not sure if I'll buy it again )

NYC Smooth Mineral Loose Finishing Powder (i still don't know what to think about it ) .


Heat  by Beyonce perfume ( i got it as a gift from my sister in law a few years ago and now it's time to finish it to set some space for and other perfume that also my sister in law gifted to me ^_^ )

So what do you think about this idea ? Will you join me in Project 10 Pan?
