My Collaboration With Max Fashions

Recently I got the opportunity of doing a lovely collaboration with Max Fashions – UAE’s very own homegrown brand.

Max stores are a one-stop destination for everything and anything you wish to shop for – clothes, home ware, kids’ wear and toys, make up, accessories and what not. And whatΒ  makes shoppingΒ all the more fun in a Max store is the easy navigation, gorgeous display and the helpful personal assistance you get in there.

Talking more about the collab, I was lucky to get a sneak peak into Max’s Ramadan Collection this year and what was a lot of fun was to capture the accessories from the collection through my lenses.

Earrings, necklaces, bags, hats, goggles – I picked a whole lot of lovely stuff from their lovely collection available across Max stores at reasonable prices.

Sharing some of my favourite picks from Max –

 

Red bag with golden details

This gorgeous Red bag with golden details. This bag was love at first sight for me – the colour, the structure and the size makes it the coolest accessory to jazz up any of your outfit this summer. Isn’t it really pretty?

 

 

Earrings

Earrings are to women what ties are to men. Being a self-admitted earrings-hoarder, I could not resist myself from picking this simple yet classic pair of reverse earrings from Max. I loooooove the combination of Wine Red with Gold to add a touch of both colour and elegance to your outfit. Isn’t it a beautiful colour-combo?

Embellished bag

Love myself a gorgeous embellished Red bag to put together a festive look together or to just lift up a simple outfit and this lovely bag from the Ramadan collection of Max is just perfect for that. Isn’t it oh-so-pretty?

Max has gorgeous summer hats, sunnies, jewellery and a whole lot of makeup from popular brands like Maybelline, Rimmel and Max factor.

Love this silver watch – so chic and classy!

So hope you liked my faves from Max. If you wanna shop any of these pieces, visit your nearest Max store or shop online at http://www.maxfashion.com

Until I see you at my next post,

{COLLABORATION} The Supercute New Dumbo Collection by Mamas & Papas

Greetings beautiful people!

This post is going to be a mommy special one. Oh yeah! This new mommy@Sheikhland is loving every bit of being one. My little bubba turned 8 months old recently. The little cuddles and hugs seem to make every day a lot more brighter, the adorable coos have filled in my little nest with so much joy that words can’t explain and this mommy here definitely feels like the happiest girl on the planet after this munchkin has come into her life. BIG SMILE

And I am sure all you mommies to little ones would agree, how great a joy is to shop for the babies and a greater joy to fill in your phone memory with endless pictures/videos of them with the cute outfits on to make the most precious memories when these little ones are not little anymore.

And to add to my excitement for baby-shopping, one of favourite brands Mamas & Papas have come out with a NEW DUMBO COLLECTION – a collection of clothes for babies and toddlers featuring Dumbo – the adorably big-eared elephant who can fly. The exclusive range for 0–1 year-olds includes rompers, all-in-ones, bibs, jersey sets and a hat & mittens set for boys and girls. The softness of the sketches, created for the collection, perfectly capture the magic that has led to Dumbo becoming loved across the world.

The Mamas & Papas Team was very sweet to send a personalized Dumbo outfit for my little boy Neil. I love the softness of the fabric used and how comfortable the outfit is designed to be. Above all, Neil looked really happy flaunting his Dumbo dress with his name on and here my little Bubba makes his debut on my blog πŸ™‚

My little rockstar Neil :)

Needless to say that both Mommy and Daddy were all elated too to and could not stop clicking him and adding up to some wonderful memories.

Check out more of Neil in this cute outfit on my Instagram. smiles

Also, usually baby’s clothes usually fade in colour after machine -wash or become hard. But Mamas & Papas clothes have always passed this test for me. They retain their colour and softness even after wash for several times. Mamas & Papas have always maintained a great level of quality, design and a good value of what you pay.

β€œDisney is at the heart of childhood – exciting adventures and lovable characters – so we jumped at the chance to bring a little of that Disney magic to Mamas & Papas”. Richard Harris, Mamas & Papas Fashion Director. The collection got available from early May, 2015 and is gonna be there for just 12 weeks, so don’t miss out – especially since it is likely to fly off the shelves!

I absolutely recommend this collection to all mommies out there – very cute, very comfy and easy maintenance.

So, hurry up as this exclusive collection is going to be around only for 12 months.

If you go ahead and buy one of Dumbo outfits, I would love to hear from you as to how you like it.

Hugs to your little ones!

{EVENT} Ciate London x Olivia Palermo Collection Launch

Hello from a hazy Sheikhland!

Hazy and not sunny! Yes … you heard me correct. It is one of those dusty days in the city when affected by a sandstorm and a poor visibility , when you miss the clear Blue skies and Burj Khalife seems to be playing a hide and seek.

And so, I thought, it would just be apt to talk about colours and the kind of colours that make me really happy are nail paints, especially around the summers when you can flaunt those bright nails giving your summer style a dash of colour.

Talking about nail paints, Ciate London has been one of my favourite brands. The very girly and chic packaging or the gorgeous shades, Ciate nail colours are simply amazing.

And when Ciate collaborated with fashionista and American socialite Olivia Palermo, I was absolutely excited to know the new nail colours that culminated with this.

Well, who else would have been better to tell us all about the exciting new shades from the Ciate x OliviaPalermo Collection than the founder of Ciate herself, the very lovely Charlotte Knight, who I had the pleasure to interview at the scrumptious High tea hosted by her on this occasion at the stunning Rhodes W1, Grosvenor House. Have a look –

Ciate also launched a make up range which looks pretty promising. I love the packaging. The lipstick is beautifully pigmented.

Leaving you with some pictures of the range –

{Sheikhland Giveaway} – Pamper Yourself with Palmer’s

Hi Sheikhlanders! How is it going?

Well, it is absolutely crazily busy at my end.

When they say, once you become a mom, you are always a mom first and then anything else, they are so right.

But thankfully for me before it all started getting too overwhelming, I realised the importance of committing a few minutes from the day to myself, no matter what. Yes, life would always be busy if you are in a full time job or a new mom like me or have older children but before you start neglecting and then losing yourself in the run, it is so damn imperative to stop for a few minutes to just take care of your own self, to love yourself …. to pamper yourself.

Trust me just 10 minutes of attention to myself in the day made me feel so good about myself and as a result I was able to do a better job at being a mother, I started creating time for blogging which had taken a backseat when my son was born and above all, I felt happy.

And the products that made those 10 minutes of pampering myself absolutely worth it are the very popular Palmer’s beauty products.

I have been using Palmers’ products for about 6 years now. Their Olive butter skin lotion with Vitamin E is my absolute essential. I so recommend their stretch marks cream/lotion during pregnancy. Worked beautifully for me and I have no pregnancy stretch marks. I love the richness of Palmer’s products and the fact that the main ingredient is Cocoa Butter, which is amazing for skin goodness.

So, do you too wanna pamper yourself with Palmer’s?

If yes, get ready to participate in the ‘Pamper yourself with Palmer’s Giveaway’ right here in this space and win a lovely gift hamper filled with goodies courtesy Palmer’s Middle east.
