NYE bag essentials

It's NYE in less than 2 days so the countdown has begun!
Here is a guide to your survival kit for NYE:

1. Clutch that matches your dress and shoes (mine's from equip)
2. Lipstick and lip balm for retouches (mine's Loreal red lipstick that I use over my christian dior nude lipstick)
3. Eyeliner tends to smudge or disappear so you need to reapply after a while (mine's Christian dior, I use chanel liquid eye-liner as well but that does not need re-application because it'll last long)
4. Blush, it's winter afterall so we're not at our tannest unfortunately and a re-application of blush during the night will go a long way especially in pictures! (mine's from mac)
5. Perfume is also a necessity after all the dancing (mine's a small bvlgari bottle)
6. Hair Tie, the same reason as above! you might need it at the end of the night when you're feeling way too hot and just need to get your hair out of the way! bobby pins are also a good idea.
7. Security essentials, you need to have your keys, ID and money (or credit card) on you and since you don't have much space in your clutch you don't really need your wallet if you have these.
8. BAND-AID! I can't stress this enough and you will thanks me at the end of the night when your gorgeous new shoes give you blisters and you can barely walk let alone dance in them.
and last but not least,
9. Camera and Phone to snap pictures of your memorable night!

Hope everyone has a wonderful new years eve and wish you all a great year to come! xxx

I love the waterfall braids and I've previously tried to do it on my own hair watching youtube tutorials but failed miserably!
I'm going to have another crack at it soon and hopefully learn how to get it right

I got back to dubai from syria last night, and despite the country's difficult state right now because of political issues, it was great to see my family for a week since I havn't seen them in almost 2 years.
When we landed, the pilot announced it was 13 degrees! I wasn't expecting it to get this cold in a exactly a week, I was actually cold at night and had to put a sweater on.

I found this photo of the comfy looking couch by designer Hanna Emelie Ernsting a few months ago and came across it yesterday when I was organizing my files in my laptop

I wish I had one of these, how comfy does it look?!

nail polish pick-up at the airport

I’m jetting off to Syria in a few hours for a week and I haven’t even started to pack yet. Woops!
My packing strategy when I go to Syria is throw some thick sweaters, jackets, stockings and a coat or two into my suitcase and voila
It is definitely the coldest climate I’ve ever experienced since I lived 18 years in Dubai where winter is in the low 20s, and Melbourne where it gets cold but not as cold as Syria
Unfortunately I won’t be able to post anything while I’m up there because I won’t have access to internet connection since I stay at my grandma’s
Hope you all have a great week and I’ll see you when I get back ;)

 I bought 3 OPI nail polishes from Melbourne’s duty free a few days ago while I was waiting for my flight; and just tried the nude one today called ‘barefoot in barcelona’

I can’t say it turned out like I’d hoped, the colour itself is really nice but it just blends too much with my skin tone.
I can’t wait to try the green one though I’ve been dying to buy this one but they’re so expensive at the department stores in Melbourne so I couldn’t resist getting them from duty free since they were on sale.

Purchased: sequined top

Greetings from Dubai! where the weather is always hot (despite being winter right now) and the shopping is always GREAT!
Words cannot describe how much I've missed all those brands I was used to before moving to Australia.
Last time I was here, it was exactly a year ago and it's the longest I've gone without visiting.
A few hours after I landed, I asked my dad to drop me to one of my favourite malls on his way to work. When I got there, I felt like a kid in a candy store, I wanted to buy everything I laid eyes on!  so much beauty, so many choices... it's a shame I couldnt buy everything I wanted without going broke, but I still managed to spend A LOT.

I bought a lot of things from H&M, Topshop and MAC but thought I'd share with you my favourite purchase of the day

sequined top from H&M

I also just made a twitter account for 7AutumnLeaves so please follow it

up up and away

I'm off to Dubai for a month and a half and it's so good to escape this dreary thunderstorm, happening outside, and the bipolar melbourne weather.
I see more rain and cold weather here in summer than I do when I go visit Dubai every winter!
Cannot WAIT to go shopping as soon as I land and my parents pick me up from the airport
see you guys there!

Outfit Post: Nirvana

Jacket: Forever New; T-shirt: Retro-Star; Jeans: K-mart; Bag: River Island; Shoes: Ruby; Necklace: a gift from syria; Sunglasses: Mango; Ring: Lovisa

I love band t-shirts, but they're very hard to dress up.
This is an example of how you can mix the rock-n-roll element of the t-shirt and bag with something feminine like adding bright colours to it and accessorizing.

Marni for H&M



Marni will be the next designer collaboration with H&M, opening in H&M stores worldwide on march 8th
Very bitter about the fact that we always miss out because we dont have access to H&M here in Oz, but who knows maybe after Topshop (first store opening in Melbourne the 8th of dec) hopefully H&M will be next... fingers crossed
