Superdry Launches AW '14/15 Collection and a New Store in Villaggio

An utterly electrifying mood was set at Villaggio Mall on the night of October 30th as British brand Superdry officially opened doors of its second store in Doha. The new store, which was already brimming with shoppers and patrons even before the event began, became a little party spot when DJ Jared McCulloch of Global DJs started pumping party mixes. Superdry made the night a little more exciting with its Autumn/Winter 2014-15 collection, launched at the same night.

Oysho Yoga Day in Doha + Oysho's FW14 Gymwear Collection

I always say that Monday is the day I hate, but last Monday was quite an exception - thanks to Oysho Qatar and its team for shaking my dull Monday routine up. After its success in Barcelona, Madrid and Milan, Oysho brought 'Yoga Day' to Doha on the sunny morning of 10th November at Sharq Village and Spa, indulging us - its media and blogger partners - in a fantastic wellness treat. Being a part of the brand's endeavor to promote fitness and wellness was a truly amazing experience.

School's Out

These three minutes summon up the blues.
Time's ticking away and we're blowing a fuse.
Last one minute now we're flying, boys in the halls high-fiving,
valley girls on boot and rally they're prattling,
too busy to care, we're rock 'n rolling.
We put our leather on, headphones on, rad sunglasses on.
Music blastin', champagne poppin', Alice Cooper singin'
'cause there'll be no more pencils, no more books, no more teachers' dirty looks.
School's out for summer.
No - school's out forever.

Weddington Way October Style Challenge

I've been invited to take part in a style challenge by Weddington Way. This month, the San Francisco-based online bridal boutique celebrates Bridal Fashion Week by hosting their October Style Challenge. So what's it about exactly? Weddington Way challenged a handful bloggers to style a complete bridesmaid look using one of their lovely bridesmaid dresses: "If you were the Maid of Honor and the bride asked you to help her style the look for her big day, what would you suggest?"

I wanted my bridesmaid look (pictured above) to be neat, but immediately appealing, so I picked an eye-catching color. What I have chosen was a cocktail length dress by Alfred Sung in an elegant shade of red, which they call 'Barcelona', with clean lines and a feminine silhouette. I thought the color Barcelona would look magnificent with gold accents and a loose updo. I opted for neutral eye makeup and nail art to keep the look as tasteful as possible while the classic red lips gave the ensemble a luxe-looking finish.
