3 WAYS TO WEAR A DENIM SKIRT

August 30 2015

I have only one fashion faux- pas: you will never see me wear mini skirt…let me more precise, you’ll never see me wear a denim mini skirt. I have nothing against people wearing denim mini skirt; it simply doesn’t work for me. But I’m all for anything midi skirt, especially in denim. Denim skirts are […]

DIOR FLOWER VASE

Dior Flower Vase DIY

I have trouble throwing out designer paper bags especially the really nice ones like this Dior bag. I think it’s because, subconsciously I know that I’m paying for the packaging more than the actual product. I’m also at the end of the day, a huge sucker for packaging. I have a drawer full of empty […]

BATTLE POST HOLIDAY BLUES

August 25 2015

Bad news ladies: summer vacation is over. When I came back from my holiday, I was certainly glad to have fresh clothes and be in the comfort of my own house but I immediately dreaded the fact of going back to work and well, going back to reality. Not only are my work clothes slightly […]

OFF THE SHOULDER

August 23 2015

It took me a while to get on the off the shoulder train. It reminded me so much of an unfortunate time in High School where I wore a floral, ruffled version with gathered hem, it send me shivers just thinking about it. But when you’re desperately looking to wear something for this summer heat, […]

CANNES TRAVEL GUIDE

Cannes Travel Guide

South of France is my first point of entry to France. I’ve been to Cannes for both work and personal almost every year and I joke that I know the place more than my in-laws. I did have a wonderful introduction to the city when my in-laws showed me around and took me to their […]

The first time I walked into a French pharmacy, I felt like I had died and gone to skincare heaven. It’s literally shelves upon shelves of French skincare products from brands like Darphin, La Roche Posay, Sisley, Claudelie, Nuxe, and much more. It’s become a mandatory stop whenever I’m in France where I stock up […]

3 in 1 JUMPER

August 16 2015

Humidity season is upon us in Doha. This is the time where everyone hibernates inside the house, sunglasses immediately fogs up as soon as you step out, and you feel you’re being suffocated to death if you dare step outside even for 5 minutes. The worst for me is the muggy feeling you get all […]

HOW I EDIT INSTAGRAM PHOTOS

How-to Edit Instagram Photos Editing App

Hello, my name is Karen and I’m an Instagram addict. I must confess that I’m one step closer to divorce, as Instagram is the first and last thing I see on a daily basis (Snapchat is a close second, btw: add me? clumsy.chic). I’m known to let my food go cold just to get that perfect […]

HAIR EVOLUTION

August 11 2015

I’m not one of those people who have heavy attachment to their hair. Having my hair cut psychologically gives me comfort as it’s one of those things I can easily do whenever I’m in need to a drastic change in my life. Does that mean I will have the tendency to do this one day? I’ve […]

SOUTH OF FRANCE SECRETS

August 9 2015

I’m not a big fan of tourists when I travel. Whenever I see a group of Asians exiting a bus with selfie sticks on hand, I roll my eyes and quickly exit the vicinity. Not that I have anything against group tours but they photobomb all my shots. We now go on a limb to […]
