MY OOTD: Outfit PapaDontPreach by Shubhika | Make up & Hair DressYourFace |
With the overwhelming positive responses on my wedding looks, especially the Floral Fantasy Mehendi Look, I thought of doing a creating a new Mehendi inspired Wedding Look as florals are over done now, so I wanted to come up with a theme that was completely unique whilst still being something realistic, something I would consider doing if I was a bride today.
Envisioning that this Mehendi event would is be set by the Beach. Btw is not a traditional Mehendi concept, its mostly just a party where Mehendi application can also be done whilst eating and boozing by the beach. There would also be a stall for the Henna tattoos in gold, silver and white colour.
I imagined a beautiful bridal stage decorated with shells, and starfishes, and maybe some green seaweed looking plants on the side of the Bridal sofa which could be a shell opened.
For this event, I imagined myself looking like a dreamy Mermaid Princess, a look that was a mix of fantasy & fusion. So when I stumbled upon this PapaDontPreach outfit I knew this was perfect for a Mermaid Fusion Bridal look. Accessorizing it with peal and gold necklace and earrings to give it an Indian touch.
I imagined guests to be in beachy dresses, with pearl or shell necklaces (since they are in fashion at the moment) or starfish earrings and men to be in swim shorts and vests, so very casual vibes.
This event would just turn in a party, with everyone dancing and just having fun. Like I said, its not a traditional Mehendi concept.
This is another list that I keep getting asked for! It was a tricky one to write as each time I visit there’s so many more new things to see and experience.
Personally, I think the best area to stay is Downtown Dubai or Sheikh Zayed Road, as its considered the Central area of Dubai. It’s basically the area around Burj Khalifa. But then again, it really depends on what you want from your holiday and ultimately budget will dictate where you’d end up staying. Im going to just list my favourite hotels, not because I would stay there but hotels to visit as Dubai focusses heavily on luxuries of life.

Had the privilege of collaborating with the king of embellishment & pakistani couture; Faraz Manan. All I can say its that his collection looks even more dazzling in person. The intricacy of detail and beautiful embellishments and embroidery, which he has incorporated with Western silhouettes.
I love his use of soft pastel colours - beige, nude, blush, peach, ivory, cream, dusty rose, taupe, dull golds, subtle shades of pink and other muted hues

There aren’t too many certainties in life, but one sure thing is that the blazer is, and always will be, a wardrobe classic. A tailoring wonder perfect for adding instant smarts and working-girl structure to any outfit, it’s just a matter of picking your spring cover-up of choice.
This light transitional layer can be the finishing touch to a trend-led outfit.
Cycling shorts have taken over my wardrobe at the moment! Got them in several neutral shades because aesthetic minimalism is back! This athletic chic trend is the most effortlessly cool way to look with pieces that transition throughout the year. This has become my go to look when I'm running errands, groceries, going for shoots & meeting friends. Its comfortable & fashion forward.
Here’s the final part of the first series of What’s In Your Pouch. After applying primer and concealer as mentioned in previous posts, the best way to lock it all in is using powder. Now, a lot of people, including the Kardashians, swear by banana powder for the under eye area. If you find it hard to commit to that really light under eye look - then here’s an alternate option.
It is important to note that we need one powder for all over our face to lock in all the liquid based makeup we have put. This will prevent it from melting off our face. As our under eye is darker than the rest of our face, it is a good idea to use a powder lighter than the one you use all over to help brighten that area. A quick hack is to get a powder from the same brand you use for your face but a few shades lighter. This way you brighten your under eye but don’t need to use a banana powder for it- plus it will last a really long time- good investment.
As I use, MAC studio fix powder NC41, I use NC25 just under my eyes to lighten it up.
Remember: It is all about finding what is right for your skin.
As per request on Instagram to make a list of things to do in Bahrain. Bahrain is a smaller version of Dubai, except its more authentic, cultured and local. Dubai being filled with 70% expats, Bahrain has 50% expats. Which means you'll see more locals, more ethnic structures & history here. In the 2 years I've been here, I've seen a lot of urbanization and development happen everywhere. Bahrainis are very warm, liberal and friendly people which is what made the transition of settling here easier.
In Dubai, alcohol is served in hotels only. Bahrain, however, we have a street called Block 338 in Adliya which is filled with restaurants and bars which serve alcohol. You can go bar hopping basically on that street which is quite hipster and cool.
Bahrain is a great place to visit, the food is incredible here. Bahrain is an eating culture, if you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram you'll know that I've become a foodie only after moving here. On weekends the population of Bahrain increases spikes up, as that's how many people from Saudi are driving in for weekend tourism on the tiny island.
The best time of the year to visit Bahrain would be from November to March as the weather is incredible during this period. Summers here are unforgivable to say the least, with the temperature rising beyond 45 degrees and it's near impossible to be outdoors in such conditions.
