We all have a favorite color, but it turns out that color is far from child’s play. Fatima Al Shirawi has it down to a science.

Fatima Al Shirawi is an Emirati entrepreneur, and a qualified Color Psychologist. She is the face behind the phenomenal brand The Gracious F, and I had the pleasure of meeting her this weekend to gain a better insight into her colorful world.

2nd December is seven sleeps away. I collated a few fashionable options in my earlier post, and wanted to share some more inspirations with you before the countdown begins.

Valleydez boutique has once again caught my eye with their on-trend, stylish creativity.

If you are anything like me and enjoy curating things that are a bit ‘out of the box’, you have to morph into a Valleydez girl right now! They have some really quirky ideas for UAE National Day.

The car plate inspired clutches have been making their rounds. Valleydez has personalized these plates for UAE National Day.

I’ve already raved about ELF in my previous post

In business school, we are taught that the customer is always right. To be successful, you need to have an excellent product on offer coupled with exceptional customer service. ELF is the perfect example of business success. Not only do they offer uniquely beautiful leather goods topped with one-on-one customer care, you also have the freedom to customize each piece to your liking.

Meet Olga, the phenomenal woman behind the brand.

Every fashionista who is serious about keeping ahead in the fashion game will have heard of the online boutique Moda Operandi.

What makes Moda Operandi so special? It is the only place you can preorder collections straight from the runway, months before it is seen anywhere else.

This month, emoticons escape from the phone and enter the closet.

I am so in love with these Emoticon Shoes, I want a pair of each!

2nd December is just two weeks away. Hooray to another long weekend! Time to get all patriotic and remix the flag colors into something fashionably acceptable (because actually wearing the UAE flag would be so faux pas!).

I am planning to wear the patriotic nail-polish shades by Paese. Retailing at AED 39, these nail-polishes give the nails a look and feel of fine, sparkling sand. With so much sparkle, you can easily skip the topcoat. It is fast-drying and best of all, the color is guaranteed to last all week long!
