When Life Isn’t What You Wanted It To Be

Sometimes we pride ourselves in saying the things that we’re all thinking as millennials, but unable to put into words. Call it bravery, stupidity, or simply being fed up with enduring the same old romantic patterns— but, let’s be real: a lot of us would rather admit to waxing our moustaches than publicly project our failures. ​Our close-knit group of friends (and whoever takes the time to analyze the memes…

READ THIS WHEN YOU SCREW UP

The universe has a funny way of tricking us into thinking that we have our lives under control, and then one day, without any proper warning, pulls the rug out from under us. That feeling of “Damn, life is good” contentment that we all spend tireless hours chasing seems to disappear as quickly as it arrived. It only takes one “we need to talk” text or appointment reminder from the…

Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette Review

As I vowed to include a bit more beauty here on the blog, showing you what I have actually been liking seems like a somewhat obvious good start. As I’ve said before, I am by no means a beauty expert but I’m always looking for those products that do what they say on the tin…. and work. If you are starting to consider upping your eyeshadow game from neutrals to…

The Ultimate Makeup Capsule

Let me put it out there, I’ve been around the block, so to speak, when it comes to beauty lines… starting out with a lot of MAC products, then moving to Lancôme for a bit before falling in love with NYX. Something I’ve always felt comfortable doing is opting for lines and products that help your skin, even if the price tag is higher than your typical drug store find. When it comes to…

Flowy Florals

There’s no word that is music to my ears quite like “sale”, so let me start off this post with it! This floral midi dress (that also comes in a gorgeous blush) is on SALE! The floral pattern, the flirty bow details on the sleeves, the $12 price…What.Is.Not.To.Love. And when it comes to transitioning out of winter and into spring, one of these babies is an absolute must-have. When it comes to…

Romantic Ruffles

I have an important math equation I need to share with you today. Ruffles + Mom Jeans = The Most Incredible Mix Ever. (Still confused as to why these are the type of equations they don’t teach in algebra…) Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock somewhere you will be well aware that the 80s are big this season. Now for me, that makes me a little bit more happy than it really should…

Coffee Date

I know, what you’re thinking… IS THAT A BLOG POST FROM MARWA?!?!? No you haven’t gone mad, and you’re not seeing things. I feel like we’re due a little life catch up to explain the silence.Wow. The fact that we’re already almost a month into 2017 seriously makes my head spin. Please tell me I’m not the only one! #SlowDownEverything With the start of a new semester, this past week…

Knits and Rips

It’s safe to say that my style is a far cry from “tomboy” in any sense of the word (I mean… have you seen all the pink I have going on around here?) so combining “olive green pants” with “I’m obsessed with this thing” may leave you scratching your head. Really? Olive green? Pants? Care to expand? Do you understand the obsession, now? You know when you find a favorite sweater,…

Scalloped Suede

Yo listen up, here’s the story… Don’t think for a second that I didn’t come thiiisss close to writing the whole song to fit today’s post. Because I most assuredly did. But when it comes down to it, this story is nothing new…Marwa falling in love with yet another off the shoulder top. Sigh. When will the madness end? As “planned” as this outfit may appear, it all came together…

Blush Crush

Friends, I blinked…and a whole summer passed since my last outfit post. THREE months. Isn’t that how summer goes, though? It trudges along at a seemingly moderate, conservative pace for two months, and then BAM. Without warning, We’re already in the second week of the semester. It’s thrilling how suddenly I’m in my third year of university, and it’s completely terrifying at the same time…know what I mean? Scroll below to find the part where…

Eid Maxis

If you’re anything like me, you have “oh, that’s cute” moments… and then you have “THAT.HAS.TO.BE.MINE.” moments in the shopping world. The “oh, that’s cute” is great and all… until, that is, you find the showstopper. And all of a sudden, you don’t know why you have a closet full of “that’s cute” when all you’ve been needing this whole time is the showstopper. Friends. Meet the showstopper, the “THAT.HAS.TO.BE.MINE.”…this floral maxi dress! Classically…

13 Pants That’ll Make You Give Up Your Skinnies

I never thought I’d say it, but suddenly my favorite skinny jeans aren’t looking quite as trendy as I thought they always would. It shouldn’t come as a surprise – I mean, haven’t pant trends fluctuated in a continual cycle since the dawn of, well, women wearing pants? Still, trying on that first pair of flared or wide-leg pants can be an eye-opening experience, and I’m still getting used to…

The Ultimate Graduation Dress Guide

You always hear about the merits of the little black dress…but a little white dress? Twice as sweet, in my opinion! Spring and Summer mean dress weather, in my book! Apart from providing the perfect temperatures to comfortably sport a dress in, the months of May and June also bring about their own set of special events calling for a step up from jeans and a top. Wedding season, graduations, and vacations alike, today’s inspiration…

From Blah to Blooming

Ok it had warmed up a little this past week, but I really need at least a month longer to get F/W wear out of my system(Real First World Problem).There’s something about the warm, ladylike shade of burgundy that always manages to catch my eye. It seems to somehow embody the perfect mix of classic, feminine and neutral while looking completely effortless and delightfully whimsical. Throwing on a light cardigan was the perfect way…

Mad for Plaid

Let’s start with the skirt. The moment I came across this button down denim skirt, I knew I’d met a new favorite I’ll have around for the rest of the year. Whether paired with a classic T-shirt or a button down shirt, it’s one skirt that stands the test of time. And speaking of timelessness, I have a thing for high-waisted… anything really… but especially skirts. I’ve found that the cut accentuates the smallest part of your waist,…
