Ramadan Mubarak! I'm Back! Updates & My Lasik Eye Surgery Experience!

Hello and Ramadan Mubarak! I feel so awkward blogging again. I took a loooong break from blogging because of life. Life happened. I got a new job, my family moved to Jeddah from Riyadh, I've also been trying to change my lifestyle. Lots of things have changed, I've changed. Hence, the break.

To be honest, I felt like this blog wasn't that useful for anyone. I lacked the motivation to write again. I was getting comments from lots of disappointed people asking me why I don't write anymore. So, today I decided there is just no reason not to. I do enjoy blogging and there are so many things I want to share!

If you've any blog post requests, leave them in the comments below.

Update 1: I got Lasik Eye Surgery done here in Jeddah in January. I absolutely hated wearing contacts/glasses. So, Alhamdullilah that has been one of the highlights of my year.

Lasik surgery in Jeddah is expensive. You will pay around 8000-12,000 SR for this eye correction surgery. For those who don't know Lasik surgery is a surgical procedure to correct near or far sightedness, My vision was pretty bad and it was getting worse! My left eye was -4.75 and right eye -5.00. I decided to get the surgery done when I saw an offer on for 3,999 SR.

How To Do Hammam Maghrabi or Moroccan Bath At Home

Last month I searched high and low for places that did the Moroccan bath. I found a few places but chickened out. Because I was informed that you cannot wear anything except a little plastic underwear. Needless to say, I was mortified and decided not to go.

How To Get Out of a Marriage Rut

Those who are married know that as a couple we often tend to fall into a dull and monotonous lifestyle. There is no excitement and you feel no connection with each other... We become robots, just functioning.

If you've been feeling low about your relationship, this could be the easiest way to revive some excitement.

Do something new.

How To Get Plump Lips

This is a temporary way to plump up your lips. As we grow older our lips tend to shrivel. I use this device mainly to exercise my lips. Get the blood flowing there. The plumpness doesn't last for a long time. For me, it lasts for about 20 mins. But, like I said I use this more to exercise my lips.

Before and After

I Got Red Hair!!!

Yes! I finally took the plunge and went completely red/magenta. My entire head had to be bleached! Yikes! But, surprisingly my hair is not as damaged as I expected it would be. I'm taking extra care of it so that helped in keeping my hair soft.

 This was my hair inspiration. She is +Bodmon Zaid. You can find her on instagram with the same name. Since my hair was pretty dark, I didn't get the same bright red color but it is very similar to the pictures above.

This was my hair dream since forever. But, I was so hesitant because I didn't want to bleach my hair. I finally gave in and got it done. I am really satisfied by how it turned out. I love red hair so much. I can never see myself going back to brown.

Comment below if you would like more details on hair care and tips on getting red hair. <3
I've literally so many things I need to write about but I've been very lazy with the blog. Trying to catch up now! Lots of posts coming insha Allah.

Belated Eid Mubarak!

New Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette Review

This is obviously the first product I wanted to review. I love glowy dewy skin. So, highlighters are a must for me. I am obsessed with them and I'm always on the lookout for better ones.

I still do love my MAC Soft and gentle highlighter but not everyone is keen on spending 160 SR on a highlighter. For those of you who are looking for a high quality highlighter for an affordable price, keep reading.

I absolutely love the packaging. It looks and feels like a high end product. It comes with 4 different highlighters, a little brush applicator and a mirror inside.
