You know how every summer I complain about how insanely hot Dubai is? Well, this year it’s really HOT! Forget about all the previous times, this year we’re having the mother of all summers- my eyes burn, I get headaches, and I feel every single pore on my body open each time I get in my car. I have to be bribed to leave the house with the promise of new make up, clothes or mojitos (some times all three) and I honestly feel like this weather is just too hot for clothes!
My hair is constantly in a bun and I can only do cotton. Spanx feels suicidal so forget anything that is not oversized or loose. I just want dresses I can throw on, be comfortable in and run out the door. In short, I can’t be fucked to be fashionable. I keep it simple, survival is my game now.
So thank god for spikes, I’ve convinced myself that they give the illusion of effort. I’ve even bought a spiked headband and belt from Asos, so please don’t try to tell me otherwise.
I’m going to be living in simple dresses that I can just throw on, and spikes.
That’s my summer survival strategy.

My glamorous lashes were thanks to Fibre Lash, think of it as false lashes in a bottle if you will. At first, I found the fiber tube a bit weird and even thought they had sent me an expired product but the stuff is quite magical. You can layer the mascara on for more drama mama lashes. I find that it makes my eyes look a lot bigger 😀
If you’re in the Middle East, you can purchase Fibre Lash from their website and I’ve been told that you can find them in Boots, etc elsewhere in the world. It’s definitely worth a buy if sexy eyelashes are your thing or if you’re too klutzy for false eye lashes (like me).
On a side note, I’m having major eye wrinkle issues 🙁 cream/ treatment suggestions please? it’s starting to make me feel self conscious.
Lots of hugs,
P.S You still have time to enter my Already Pretty giveaway!
