Irrational Fear…

I think I have a problem with letting go of people. To some, this may come out as a shocking thing, especially because I easily push people away. However, I’m actually talking about, my past. I’m sure that, everyone makes new friends along the road, but at some point, something just happens to separate them. Usually, people move on with their life, but not me. I don’t really know what or why I’m writing. All I know is that, if we were friends once upon a time, and you had to move, and somehow we didn’t stay in touch…

You should know that there were days were I just sat there, and wondered how you were doing, whether you changed as a person, if you still had the same annoying habits, whether you still dress, talk, walk, and drink the same.

At some very rare occasions, I would try to find you on every social networking site that I ever used. And when I find you, I would re-read all our conversations. Sometimes I would message you. Hoping that you’d still remember me. All the memories and conversations that we had. Whether you still have that jacket, teddy, book, bracelet, or necklace that I once gave you.

But let’s all snap back to reality for just a second. I somewhat, refuse to let people be just a part of my history. I think I have a problem with letting go of people that once had an impact on me. Whether it be positive or negative. I fear that, once I let go of people that I knew once, that I knew SO well, that I’d lose them forever. Which should’ve happened years ago. Or maybe, it’s just that I’m never satisfied with just ‘memories’. Maybe I don’t want JUST the memories. Maybe I want the people in the memories too. I think this is too hard to ask for. Might as well give up. Mehh, I don’t know. I don’t tell this to many people but I still wonder about my Kindergarten best friend called ‘Noora’. Is this creepy? Ok. I think I should stop rambling. But anyways, I needed to get somethings off my chest. What better way that to post it on my blog, right? Hahahaha!

Fashion Spotlight: Sophie Webster

Sophie Webster 1
If you’re looking for some whimsical and fantasy worthy accessories, let me introduce you to Sophia Webster. One word that describes her collection of party-ready shoes and handbags: FUN.  The kind of fun that makes all your other shoes seem boring in comparison.  The kind of shoes that make you ask yourself, “Where have you been all my life?”.   Why wouldn’t you want to throw on a pair of sunset printed sandals or circle stacked heels?
The best part is that each shoe and accessory makes a statement.  Whether it’s an ankle strap, sequin-sprayed sandal with a patent leather bow, or neon-splashed PVC slingbacks, one thing is for sure – these are not for those that take life too seriously.

Beauty Spotlight: RiRi for MAC

Image

Sure, there’s the ongoing media obsession over her relationship with Chris Brown, but that’s balanced out by her Grammy-winning singing career, her new fashion line with ‘River Island’ and, now, a new, groundbreaking deal with MAC Cosmetics.

Image

The first product to launch will be ‘RiRi Woo’ (above), a lipstick inspired by the classic MAC red Ruby Woo – a favourite of Rihanna’s.

Rihanna approached the task with a laser focus. “She wanted RiRi Woo to be slightly more blue-red and retro matte — a matte with moisturizer finish we’d used in a collection years ago and currently only have in one product,” said Balbier (MAC’s senior vice president of global product development). “She was especially adamant that the color be suitable for every skin tone.”

I am super excited to get my hands on this lipstick! However, the dates of the international launch has not be set yet.

I’ll be a keeping an eye on this, I’m sure you guys will too! Am I right ladies?

Atelier Versace Spring Collection 2013!

Recently I’ve been seen LOTS of runway pictures, and I thought I could share them with you. The spring 2013 collections were very intricate, some were hot, some where not.

When you think of the word ‘runway’ with all the big names, you instantly think… Elegant? Refined? Posh? But is it really the case with Donatella Versace? I think the collection says it all.

I saw lots of golds, blacks, some neutrals, and some neon. Who would’ve guessed? Not me.

Versace said that she had been inspired by Le Centorial, the glass, iron and steel domed building in the heart of Paris.

Probably my favourite out of the whole collection!

The white mink coat (above), which, reworked with mirror, python and crystal embroidery, took 500 hours to construct. But 500 hours for a single jacket? That sounds museum-worthy rather than real fashion. But Versace insists there are no plans to open a Versace museum. “We keep one of every item for our archives, ” she says, ” but while I love museums, I prefer to see my clothes on living bodies”.

‘It’s all about gold,’ said Donatella Versace immediately before her Atelier Versace show kicked off the spring/summer haute couture collections in Paris. And indeed it was – from the 24-carat pinstripe patch-worked into narrow–waisted, strong-shouldered jackets and cigarette-leg trousers, to the talon heels of shoes. More precious metal came in the form of gleaming oversized epaulettes and exaggerated cuffs that were part must-have accessory, part weaponry, and the house’s signature metal mesh. It’s safe to say that Versace chainmail is as razzle-dazzle spectacular now as it ever was.

ON THE MAKEUP:

“Donatella was really obsessed with a neon green metallic that’s in the shoes and in the clothing – really lime, hot green metallic,” explained McGrath Sunday night backstage. “So we added just a little strip of eyeliner to the outside of the eyes as a line and a little bit on the inner corners.”

So I did like the detailing, but is it something I’d wear? Hahaha no. Do tell me guys what you think about Versace newest collection!

Off goes 2012, In comes 2♡13 ~

I know, I’m kinda late on my New Year’s post, and that’s because I wasn’t home at NYE. So excuse my lack of posts, but I will be posting lots soon (Europe trip, etc.)!

So it’s January again, and am not really big on New Year’s Resolutions and stuff, becuase I never stick to them anyways! So why plan any?! However, this year, I will set up easy little baby plans to follow (which I will post at the end), but for now? I’d like to thank all my friends, my classmates, my family, my loved ones, and the people who did me wrong too. Without my friends and classmates, I wouldn’t have had the fun times that I cherish at this moment. Without my family, I wouldn’t have had the support and love I have now. Without my loved ones, I wouldn’t have the courage to accept my flaws. Without the people who did me wrong, I wouldn’t have learned a lot of valuable lessons and most definitely, I wouldn’t have known how to set my priorities right!

2012 was a year, that I don’t think I would ever want to repeat again. Even though the good memories are plenty, I’m sorry to say that the bad experiences over-shadows them. I think that, what happened in 2012, stays in 2012, and I’m not allow myself to feel bad about anything that happened this last year. But I also believe that, I shouldn’t be thankful for all the blessings, ups, downs, new friends,  shared moments, and the talented people I’ve got to discover and see their work. So, my highlights for the past year were:

  • Meeting the famous actor ‘Hamad ElOmany’ ‘حمد العماني’. Which was actually some what awkward. But it was fun because I had my best friend with me! (Shout out to Mariam!)
  • Discovering my love for poetry and literature.
  • Meeting some of the most closest people to my heart! (Shout out to Fay!)
  • Starting a blog? Definitely.
  • Eating my first beef burger since 6 years? I just had to try Shake Shack! Hahahaha
  • Having my first ever professional facial! (Thanks sis ‘A’)!
  • Getting my Mac Book!
  • Subscribing to a monthly beauty box!
  • All the fun trips ( Only my close friends will know this!)
  • Visiting Hitler’s Camp in Dachau.
  • 24/9/2012, Monday.
  • Losing close people that were close to my heart.

However, on the bright side, my goals are:

  • Make new memories.
  • Try to exercise for 20 minutes each day.
  • Try to keep up with my school work.
  • Put myself before others.
  • Get a second ear piercing. 😦
  • Read more books.
  • Go back to doing yoga.
  • And last but not least, enjoy every moment that comes along, and to learn every lesson 2013 has to offer.

Let’s hope I stick to these. It’s really simple Shamma. You can do it.

Love Always,

Shamma x.
