So as much as I love summer, the heat right now is killing me and when I wear jeans my skin gets red (I call it jeans rash, but is that actually a thing?). So I decided to try something new and just avoided wearing anything that clings to my legs (a.k.a jeans, leggings etc..) most of the time. Wide leg pants have grown to become my best friends. I’m especially fond to this pair because if my legs are closed it looks like I’m wearing a maxi skirt then when I start moving you can tell that it’s pants also I got quite a few compliments today which made my day to be honest.
I have a couple hints when it comes to styling printed loose pants and I’ll share them with you.
1- I know that everyone’s super into mixing prints right now but unless the 2 prints mix super well together stay away from that it’ll end up looking like a mess.
2- If you’re wearing them in the morning opt for a plain coloured shirt while taking in consideration the colour palette of the pants.
3- If you’re wearing them at night wear a geometric shirt and if you want to wear crop top make sure that there’s not more than 3 centimetres of skin showing if the pants are high waisted.
4- When it comes to accessorising keep it simple, feel free to wear a big statement necklace but in that case town down the rings and/or bracelets you’re wearing.
5- I love lipstick and it’s an essential part in any outfit I put on. So if you put lipstick on make sure it matches your outfit because at the end of the day it is an accessory.
A while ago we met up with Mohanad Kojak and to say the least we were blown away by his positivity, creativity and kindness. For those who aren’t familiar with Mohanad, he’s currently a student at GUC studying applied arts, who started his own line “Kojak”. It is very difficult to juggle between university and a career but this beautiful soul managed to do it flawlessly.
Kojak’s designs are unique, different and definitely stand out. Each piece is made with so much care and is tailored to perfection. Most kid’s dream is to be dressed like royalty and he makes these dreams come true (well for adults not kids). I am in love with everything he has created and I have to say each collection is even better than the previous one.
His newest collection entitled “Bloodline” is dominated by a Royal blue, Muted Gold and Nude palette and is enriched with tassels. This collection definitely stands out and the most beautiful thing about it is the fact that it’s wearable art.
Here are a couple fun facts:
- The gorgeous woman in the middle is Mohanad’s mother.
- Mohanad takes all the pictures in his look book and accompanies them with captions in order to open up his mind to us and tell us a story

My favorite season is here, which means that days get longer, skin gets darker and that it’s time to show off that body. I discovered a swimwear brand called saya (@sayaswimwear on instagram) based here in Egypt that’s going to cover all your needs for this hot season.
We all know that swimsuit shopping is a very hectic process but saya’s making is super easy with a wide selection of cuts to pick from, there’s something for everybody. Every swimsuit is made with love & care and it’s a guarantee that the quality is good as it’s not a mass production. I strongly advise you all to drop what you’re doing and go check them out right now.
Also how cute is the wet bag that comes with every swimsuit as a gift?
When you wake up “early” (1Pm counts as early right?) are super tired and have less than 15 mins to go down and want to look fabulous what do you wear you may ask?
Just wear over alls and a basic tee. As overalls are a big enough statement you don’t need to go all out with the shirt.
Lately I’ve been obsessed with jumpsuits, there’s something about them that just screams my name. The one I’m wearing’s open back printed and quite loose, it grabbed my attention because it’s like a lot of items I like combined (which is pretty cool).
1- Silk pants
There’s nothing more comfy than silk pants (except pyjamas that is). In the warmer months I don’t like having too much fabric clinging to my body because I get hot really easily so I get annoyed if I have skinny pants on.
2- A lightweight white shirt
I love wearing white in spring. I believe that this is a must have in everyone’s closet (both women and men).
3- La parisienne perfume
The scent is captivating, light and simply sexy. No need to say more.
4- Mac Rebel lipstick
It’s no secret that I love dark lipstick. Lately I just put Rebel on and I’m ready to go.
5- Brown Espadrilles
This Fendy pair captured my attention because it’s both black and brown and I love the contrast between the sides and the leather.
Sometimes we all lack motivation, we feel trapped or just down. In moments like these the only thing we truly need is inspiration. Inspiration can come in a lot of shapes and forms. I’ll be honest with you, Friday wasn’t my best day, I felt a bit down even if I was with people that I love, my mind was elsewhere. Then I watched an inspirational video by Ashraf Hamdi (@ashrafhamiworld) and somehow I felt better. It’s not a magic spell but somehow these clips with that music and these words were exactly what I needed.
