DIY - Lip scrub !!

Happy thursday everyone :D today I thought I would share with you something I've recently became addicted to! which is a lip scrub - I've been looking for "the" best lip scrub, a lot of people recommended a DIY scrub so I thought let's try that! I've been using it now for almost two months and I can tell you I am 100% in love with how my lips look and feel! it's simple, effective and you can always refill it ;p the main two products for a simple lip scrub would be sugar and oil and that's it but as I was searching I found some who said that you can add just about what you like so here is how I did mine, we will need:
- Normal sugar (some say they use powder sugar but it gave me a paste sort of thing! so I went to normal one) - 2 tbs
- Olive oil (or any oil you wish) - ½ or 3/4 tbs
- Rose water (because I know how beneficial it is to beauty purposes - and that is my personal addition to the scrub ;p) - 3-6 drops as you like
- food color (just a fun addition and to make it look professional!) - 3 drops
- container

first add the sugar and then the oil gradually and make sure that sugar is always greater than the oil or else it will be too greasy >_< we defiantly don't want that! and this is how it's gonna look like

then add the rose water and the color, mix them all together and you have your lovely lip scrub!! you can also add flavor but I didn't like it :p

and to get the best out of this scrub I put a lip butter on before sleeping because it gives my lips intensive moister and when I wake up I scrub my lips gently but making sure that every dead cell or flake is removed and then I apply a lip balm just because the sugar makes you feel like your lips are dry!

Trust me you will fall in love with your lips ! I know I did ;)
enjoy your weekend !

My first wall art!!

a while ago when my sister moved to her new room :p in which I felt like it was missing a wall art touch! so I promised her that I will do her a beautiful piece to decorate her coral pink room! I was pleased with what I managed to create but after I printed it out OMG!!! I couldn't be anymore proud! I sometimes doubt my abilities and that was the first time in which I saw a clear result of what I can do!! I'm so happy and I know that that poster will not be my last!

what do you think?

Happy Eid week :)

Happy Monday everyone, last week was a  very special one since it was Eid time!! and to me Eid is all about family, food, and fashion. I spent 5 days in a row just gathering with family, my family side or my husband's side and to sum these five days all I can say is they were FUN! ugh I just love Eid and everything about it, even though every where gets to be super crowded but everyone is entitled to enjoy this lovely time if the year! in Eid day the sun seems brighter and everyone wears a smile along side with their new outfits! ! As for me I wanted my outfit to be girlie - hint: a dress! I wanted something fresh and colorful and I found a good material but after I got it I wasn't really sure that it was going to be what I imagine it to be - after it was ready I fell in love with it, it was summery, full of color and girlie!! and for the first time in my life -probably- I paired that dress with a match-y match bag and shoes!! something I would never do, but it was pretty nice change! Also I wanted to keep things simple so I didn't really go that far with accessories I wore a gold set with a white watch and that was it! As for makeup it was also simple with lovely pink lipstick and golden green eyeliner!  

How was your Eid or week :p? and have a nice week ❤
