On my way to Dubai!

Hey all, 
just a little update...classes are  overrrrr, my GPA went down to a 3.2 now :( so bummed about it but than again I AM  a third year student in the Engineering major with two jobs and I am involved in 6 different clubs so Im very proud of myself!
usually there are students who are still in there second year with out a job not involved in anything and their GPA is way lower than a 3.2 so not going to stress it, but than again I want to compare myself to the geniuses with a 3.9 instead of the people with a 1.9 lol.
Ive worked REALLLYY hard this semester, therefore I decided to give myself a wonderful vacation!!!!!!!!

somewhere warm, far and exotic and I also want to see loved ones, soooooo I though there is no  better destination than UAE!

decorating your room with flowers!

Hey, so recently Ive became really into flowers, and plants that are rich in color. and this is why I purchased this purple beautifullll flower for my room

I think it makes your place look fresh, stylish and brings out some color which makes the whole room look better, key things that pop out in a boring room or space can really make a difference.

So go out get yourself some cute flowers with an amazing color and place it in an area that is "boring" or simply anywhere in your room and you will notice  the difference seriously! cant wait to buy more, but not too much since I want a room not a garden lol

I need a new camera

so I need your advice on something. 
what is a really gooddd camera for videos? 
I currently have this: 

its an AMAZING camera, unfortunately It does not take videos :( 
So I was wondering if you guys know of any good quality camera (HD) that takes AMAZING video (with the blurry background and everything) and that doesn't cost over $1000 lol :) Im sure there is something relatively cheap and very high quality out there, so the cheaper the better. if not that I might just have to suck it up and do a little shopping on a high quality camera ;) thanks in advanced 
xoxo -SL

SOO0 before Eid I decided to do my own henna. and to my suprise it came out AMAZING lol...not bad for a second time ever doing henna? 

I learned the is to have a steady hand, I cant really draw either so that has nothing to do with it, just a steady hand. I supported my hand with my face lol and had my elbow on a hard surface....I went very slowly after awhile u get the hang of it, also when making the designs u want to press and while making the line of henna paste come out you move it around to creat the shape (almost like creating the shape  on air before it hits your hand) and this is my final results :) 
let me know if u have any questionsss

im backkk!!

 first I want to apologize for pretty much disappearing and leaving my poor blog unattended and totally abandoned it :( I SOWWYYYY 

Theres tons of new newsssss!!! yay, I started my third year of Engineering technology its going great, I found another Arab (shes new) girl in all of my classes, and I swear we are like the SAME.

I have been doing well in all my classes so far except my physics cuz my professor is a total douche bag.......what has been up with youuu???

Hey dolls! so recently I was at the mall with a friend, and I had NO INTENTIONS on buying ANYTHING (since im a such a shopaholic). I was helping her pick out a new bag at Macys. However, I came across the perfume Ive always wanted (because it looks cute) LOL. Im talking about no other but Viva La Juice by Juicy Couture! I ended up spending $100+ tax. hmmm, so much for not wanting to  spend a dime huh? Well of course the thing that always made me soo attracted to this perfume is ironically not the smell, it is the appearance.
 The one I got was the set that came with the lotion and shower gel, which I REGRET! because the shower gel sucks LOL and I didnt even bother trying the lotion since its so strong. the smell of the perfume is veryyyy GOOODD! however, it gives me a headache :( some smells give me a really bad headache and I guess this one does as well.

Oh and also! If I took out the bow from the perfume and used it as a two finger ring! haaa LOVE ITTTTT <3

let me know what other perfumes or smells that you guys enjoy :)

Henna stickers

Hello guys! well if you know me you know how much I LOVE HENNA! unfortunately , I cant get an Arab henna designer where I live so I decided to have some henna stickers be sent to me from Morocco and UAE. I was curious to try it, and so I did.
so this are the stickers I have, as you know I am reaaaaallllyyy in love with khaleeji henna designs, and I CANT WAIT to get a 100 pure khaliji henna (from a khaleeji girl) next time im in Dubai, untill then I will just keep getting what I like to call the "fake" khaleeji henna LOL. 
 First and most I made sure to wash my hands very well, to get rid of the oils and stuff like that to make sure the henna stains well and lasts longer as well!
 I than applied the desired sticker, I put the part thats suppose to be in the middle on the end of my hand going down from my pinky to get more of a khaleeji henna look :D
 I used a henna needle, in Morocco the henna designers use needles instead of the henna cone. the needles are much harder, but that is what I had so I used it to fill in the sticker

 and thats all, I waited until it dried and used a blow dryer to help it dry faster, and than peeled it off when it was completely dried!

Moroccan ghassoul for the body!

Hello dolls! so today I want to talk about moroccan ghasoul, I talked about this a few months ago but it was for facials only! today I have PURE mudd moroccan ghassoul straight from the Morocco and its for the body. This can be purchased at any Moroccan hamam (in morocco) or at the Attar (the herp man in morocco). 

 and this is what it looks like on the inside, they are just like mud rocks.

 each one is different size, you can take as many as you like, it all depends on how much ghassoul paste you want. for me here I only took one to show you guys how its done.
 I than mixed it with warm water, and it dissolves and mixes with the water

 You can use a spoon, a tool or simply your fingers and mix it around to make it easier, dont put too much water because you would rather have it be thick paste than all watery, when its completely dissolved and you find it to be too thick and you dont like that you can add little water! remember its better thick than watery! also, less is always more :D
You then take the ghassoul paste and apply it to your body, leave it there untill it is completely dry and hard, and than wash it off! enjoy the softness and how clean your skin will look and feel :D
