How I decorate my University Dorm room

University dorm rooms can look like a prison, but it all depends on you and how YOU make it look. Most people's rooms that I visit look so......unattractive. I wouldn't want to stay there. Lucky for me, I got placed into the apartments, which have a kitchen living room, 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and showers (1 shower/bathroom per 2 people). But even that the rooms can look HORRIBLE. actually the whole apartment but again it just depends on the people living there. So, here are somethings I did to try to make my room more attractive and something I LOVE coming home to after a long day of stressful classes and meeting etc.

One thing that I hate is the lighting! Oh gosh especially at night, its so strong and yellowish everything looks ugly... so I bought this colorful light things and I also put Christmas lights, most of the time I just have the Christmas lights on because I prefer low "calm" lighting. 


I also have this cute lamp thingy from target!! its SUPER cute, I have my louboutin shoes hung on them so when I study I can look at them and thing "OH YOU WANT TO AFFORD MORE? STUDY HARDER STUDY HARDER" haha

 This is my makeup section and storage

 this is my makeup section, I also like to keep a little notepad near my bed because I like to write sometimes, or doodle, or write my goals lol

 In the storage thing, I keep some air freshener and febreez which you cant see here, I also keep clutches. In the photo below I have this thing from Fly Emirates (BEST AIRLINE EVER) and I just keep my nail polishes there

 I keep a plug thing near my bed so I can charge my stuff and my phone at night while sleeping. like my hello kitty?

 I keep a little thing of all my everyday creams and such.....

 I have face masks, lotions, night creams, hair serum, deodorant, makeup wipes, hair mask, sunscreen/ sunblock, baby powder lol, primer etc etc

 My desk, I have fake flowers that I LOVE...from Ikea. Camera (I FINALLY GOT ONE, now if only I can start recording) I also have two of my favorite candles...even if I dont light them they still smell amazing..and all the way to the left I have a little cute box filled with all my hair stuff (pins, hair strainer, heat protector etc)

 Some of the mess and my books. I also keep some traveling stuff (behind the two traveling hair conditioners things)

 I like to also put up my beautiful Chanel bag, since its yellow and helps add some color to my otherwise prison-looking wall. I also have some wall art from says "Always kiss me goodnight" lol

 I LOVE to use these little pin things to help my decorations stay up because the sticky stuff at target and walmart doesnt work -__-

 this is my awesome jewelry part,  I like to keep cute boxes from the jewelry gifts I got that year....

 rings rings rings....chaaaa

 This thing I got from a craft store and it holds my bracelets and some of my watches

I also keep some of the pillow things to keep my favorite watches on them


 My lovely perfumes...I have a bunch of lotions in the background (and some things from the hotel in Manhattan, Abu Dhabi and a hotel from New Jersey)  too but I dont really like them there, it just looks too much, Im still thinking of a neat way to store them all.

 I also put my towel robe thing on the wall because I like how it all ties up together.

And lastly, thats my closet, I hung a thing on the door to keep all of my colorful scarfs on to add some more color to my room...I also hang some of my bags on the colorful light thing that I got from target :D

Thanks for reading my post <3 make sure you subscribe, comment etc <3

Rihanna's new perfume

Hey <3

So, I'm not really a big fan of getting celebrity perfumes. They suck, and most people ONLY get them because of the actual celebrity and not the perfume. But I do like to go around and smell their perfumes at the store just to see which one sucks more. I, however was surprised completely to see how GOOD Rhianna's perfume OMG its AWESOME! she has a red one and a black one (cant be bothered to remember the names) BUT they were both so good that I didnt know which one to get so I decided not to get any. 

I went to the mall again, and this time if you buy one large perfume you get this AMAZING clutch and I didnt even care about the perfume that clutch was sooooo cute and a shirt with her perfume logo "Reb'l"  or something but it was so simple cute....again I was stuck on which one to get so I decided to get the red one because I love the color red :D IM SO HAPPY WITH IT! I actually ended up getting a kit which has the large size perfume, a small travel one, lotion and body wash with the clutch and the shirt all for a little under 100! seriously Rihanna has made me PROUD!

 The two red things in the back are the lotion and body wash :D Also, the box with her face is the awesome box it came in

 And this is the amazing clutch that I LOVE, it has a bracelet thing stuck to it!!! I LOVE IT SO MUCH :')

I wore it for an event soon after getting it :D




now its actually on sale !! ahh I wish I got it then. Click on the pic below if your interested in buying it, its $39.00 now!! (I dont think it comes with the bag anymore, it was limited time)



or if you want the baby one to try it out: (its $35)



or or or, even better the gift set...which has the perfume I was talking about this is for only $31.50 in the khols online website, again just click the pic below 


I hope this was helpful, if your not sure about the perfume or dont want to take my word for it make sure u go in the store and smell it first, then come back online and buy it since its so much cheaper <3 for those of you who have it...what do you think?

Moroccan girls are beautiful

One of the many sayings among the Arabs is that Morocco is knows for its girls....some things are good while others are bad. One thing everyone seems to agree is their beauty! now I've been to many countries around the world and every where I go I see beauty. However, in Morocco......MOST girls are just beautiful...their everywhere! now don't get me wrong, I don't agree with the saying that "All Moroccan girls are beautiful" no,no BUT I do see that A LOT of a big majority of them are very gorgeous. (Same goes for Lebanese girls)

However, beauty is not JUST a pretty face......

Many moroccan girls have this "thing" that just makes them beautiful even if they aren't too visually attractive you will fall in love with them, they are very feminine, they KNOW their power as a female and the power of the beauty of women on the world and they sure know how to use--very well! 

its the way they carry themselves, its the confidence, the elegance and class. its the way they love themselves and see their true self worth that makes them beautiful. Moroccan women know how to handle a man and that is why most Arab men cannot leave them alone. Many Arab females (and now males) have come up with the stereotype that Moroccan women practice black magic and that it why men leave their wives to go to morocco and find a young beautiful woman.....ARE YOU KIDDING ME? if you do still believe that, your either an illiterate moron living under a rock or just simply ignorant and cannot find another reason to try and make them look bad because your jealous. 

Now, the black magic issue is a different blog post, and YOU KNOW I have a lot to say about that non-sence. 

for now. lets get back to feminine goddess keeping that Moroccan woman going. Since I grew up in Morocco, I have learned the time and effort Moroccan ladies do in order to please their husbands. They prefer their husbands (and sons) over ANYTHING. They KNOW how to take care of their man, they are everything their man needs and wants and that is the SAME reason you dont see Moroccan men going to other Arab countries to cheat on their wives (like many arab men do) or marry multiple wives because they have everything they need, and in return the man treats his wife like a queen. Moroccan women do not look at pleasing thier man and keeping him happy as a chore, it pleases them to please him. They serve as wives, best-friends, lovers, EVERYTHING he needs and I think most women should be like this. you should WANT to take care of your man and if you like doing this its a win-win situation for both because trust me the man will realize the effort and treat you way like the best thing ever. Mind you, he will be coming back begging you not to be mad at him anymore if he does do something wrong hehe. 

Moroccan women just know what it takes to be  A WOMAN. and that's what men want they want a true and real woman! their physical beauty is just the cherry on top!  remember beauty comes from within!

Not only that, but they are real. forgive me if I offend anyone but most famous Lebanese girls are beautiful however they are FAKE. theyre fake because they ALL have the same personality and they all have the same looks (due to ALL of them having plastic surgery---I mean ALL) I said famous, please show me ANY Lebanese singer/star that acts real and human and like her poop stinks if you do not agree. 

Whole Moroccan girls are REAL females, the beauty get the attention the personality gets the heart! they're always laughing and positive and smiling and loving and NORMAL. they dont look down on anyone and thats what makes people love them.......and lastly they are SMART! and intelligent. they know what they want and how to get it....they can also speak every Arabic language (Khaleeji, egyptian, syrian) along with other languages.....lets see one of my favorite famous moroccan singers Mona Amarcha in here interview...speaking Egyptian. AND listen to her intelligent!!!

Hi hi!! 
as most of you my lovely readers already know, I am completely obsessed with traveling. I've always said since I was in high school "I will travel the world by age 40". lets just say that I have had the privileged to go to many amazing countries. sooo just in the summer I was thinking that Ive yet never been to any country in South America nor Africa (besides Morocco)....but Morocco doesn't really count. I mean it is an African country but its not what people think of when they say I went to Africa. So as I had the privileged to talk to my university's new chancellors she told me about a professor who will be going to Ghana to build a school! and shes looking for engineering students and I would be great if I go! and months later I have my ticket and hotel ready and waiting for me! I'm so excited for having the chance to go, for eating their food (its soooo good, my house mate is from there) and for being able to work on real life engineering work that will benefit people and the world, and for having the chance to change hundreds of young children's lives is the absolute amazing part of it all!

Do you guys love traveling? where have you been??? (it doesnt have to be a diffrent country, diff cities and towns count too lol)

have a nice rest of the week <3

The eyes are the windows to the soul

If you asked me "if you had to take any beauty item with you on a stranded island what would you take" my answer would be 100% hands DOWWWWNN.....kohl--or eyeliner. Since I live on campus, I left my eyeliner there..I used a couple of old pencil eyeliners I had and I wasnt satisfied. . I, then,  decided to use my mom's which is a pencil eyeliner...I realized gosh I havent used a pencil eyeliner since 2010 and they suck!!!! 

 Like most arab girls, I like my eyeliner JET BLACK, and I like tons and tons of it, I like it to glide on smoothly and stay there allllll daaaayy!!! Thanks to one of my friends from morocco who gave me her "cone" eyeliner in 2010 after I complimented here on it. if you dont know what a cone eye linear is its THIS

I have been obsessed since. heres was from Saudi Arabia. It literately lasted me years, in fact I still have it but the tip is so round now that I got another one. I got one sent to me from Morocco and it was HORRIBLE, it even said "made in Spain" chaaa! if I wanted European eyeliner I would have got it myself from here without having to get stuff sent from morocco, it went on smoothly however it also went ALL over my face. it was smudging everywhere...HATE IT!

 so one day I was at this Islamic store in Boston where they sell stuff from Arab countries and I came by one!!! and it was 100% kohl without any chemicals and made in an arab country, I knew I found IT! thought it doesnt not compare to the one from Saudi Arabia, it did the job preeeettyy well. I bought it and used it mostly every day and I still have it now a year and months later :D and it was so cheap too! sooo if your interested in getting that exotic eye look, this is the type of eyeliner you want to go for. 

Another secret that ALLL arab girls know about is the actual kohl powder. this is the REAL kohl, the stuff that ppl use to make eyeliner and all, except its legit organic and is actually very good for your eye and has been used for centuries by men women and children to heal eye related illnesses or just ease any pain. when you put it on, it literately feels like mint for your eye, like so refreshing you get that "AHH" feeling, just like you washed your mouth with a strong mouthwash and killed all the germs. My grandmothers use it on a daily basis, my mom and all of my aunts, everyone I grew up with this is what we had in morroco...we didnt have the pencil or cone eyeliners that only became popular recently. THE only thing about it is, you have to apply it with a stick....and this is a very hard task for most people, especially if you havent done it before. I, myself, is getting better at it on a daily basis :)  like this: 

 and it looks like this: (well some modern ones do)
 Kim has defiantly gotten the Arabian eye correct!!

 This, is what it would most likely to look like, a small bottle of the kohl powder, sticks and a stick holder where you can also pour your powder inside
and lastly some more examples of how we like our eyeliner!

self love

Hello everyone, this is going to be more of a personal blog. So if your not interested you can stop reading....NOW!

 a few years ago I went through a heartbreak. After the heartbreak I got inspired to become more religious and closer to God because that is where I found my inner peace, I started wearing hijab, I started doing stuff that I LOVE, spent more time focusing on me and became fully in love with ME! Ive become like a magnet, I loved myself so much that everyone else around me was automatically drawn to ME. Ive head several men head over heels for me, ready to marry me and so on but I was too busy loving myself, doing what will benefit me.  It took me over two years to fully get over and move on from that person that I THOUGHT I love.

 He was an a amazing guy, very attractive he was half Moroccan, caring and all of that BUT he had this side to him lets just say wasnt the best--and I wont go into detail because its not fair to him. I had the best and worse days of my life while I was with him! But the worse part was he was extremely emotionally abusive to me. I have never felt so low,  and there literally hasn't gone ONE day without us fighting. It was crazy. 

At the time of the breakup it got really really bad to the point that he was abusing me more than ever, using profound language and making me feel more like crap. At the time, I couldn't see the plan God had for me and thought that I was completely devastated, I felt that my life sucked so bad. But what I know now that I did not know at the time was how wonderful, stronger, experiences I would come out of that situation. I've become a better person and humane being on on levels.

  EVERYTHING in life, even if it seems pointless is there to HELP you. He was there as a teacher to me and as a person whom taught me that I needed to make my standards higher, that I needed to love myself better, to have more self worth, to respect myself. And this is exactly what had happened. So, now looking back I am extremly happy and grateful for that situation, I seriously seriously seriously would not change ANYTHING if I could go back and do so. It was an amazing experience, lesson and something that I've benefited from for a whole life time and I am glad that I was able to go through that in the course of my life.

After being hurt and all that, I just want to say that I have been contacted lots of times from this person trying to come back into my life. Claiming that is now different and is grown up and is not acting like the little kid that he was before. And that he wanted to marry me and I'm the type of girl he would see himself with for the rest of his life. It was all rewarding and nice to hear this from him, but it was just a little too late and I have been super changed. Hes been trying to be back with me for 2 years + now. Last time we spoke was 6 months ago, though I never have time for him it is NICE to know that my crying and telling msyelf one day he will regret it over and over again DID actually come true. So ladies, please please please LOVE YOURSELF! repsect yourself, if you are going through any type of heartache have the love and respect for YOU to just walk away and reconsider your life. focus on you and everyone else will be coming to you, trust me! I am here for anyone who wants any advice or just wants to talk. I'll happily answer any questions you guys might have about what I wrote about, theres so much more but I dont want to take your time and keep you reading so I will end it at that.


Khalleji henna 2

Hello :D so heres my latest henna design, I did this in RAK UAE. And it was legit khaleeji henna, like the one I have been craving all along, I decided to go for it and get it all the way to my elbows, I mean why now? and It was fantastic, the salon was amazing it was actually closed but we called the lady and she sent two of her workers right away (it was 12 AM) and they came and each lady took a hand. I mean they are soooo talented I was sooo happy with the outcome of the henna and it wasnt expensive at all :) I am actually wishing I still had it till this since I lost the picx from my camera with clearer photos here are some I took with my phone
