Be Nice To Your Face!

Hey! I don't know if you noticed but I've got a face! Now, I don't remember exactly when I started caring how I looked but I started using makeup and actively took care of my face ehhh 2 years ago? Sadly, if you dig deep enough on this blog (not that hard) you will find some nasty make-up photos. I thought I was super duper fly with my eyeliner that looked like a lego stamp on my eyelid. I think I've improved a tiny bit. I get super attached to products and develop a routine with each of them. If it gets over then I run out and buy the SAME EXACT THING. hey what can I say. I'm not one for change. Soooooo if you're interested to know how I manage to make myself look somewhat alive keep on reading! 

Diet
Everything start's with your diet. I know you've probably heard it a million times but it's super duper important and whatever you eat will affect your skin! I personally am dependent on water. If my water intake goes down tiny little dots show up on my nose and many new friends show up.

Moisturizer
For the longest time my skin used to be sooo dry. Like nasty dry. I hated moisturizer and frankly still do. It just feels so gross. I'm a night shower person so right after I apply moisturizer on my legs,face,and arms. I've also heard things about applying moisturizer in an upward motion to avoid wrinkles so go for it if that's your thing. 

Specifically, I use Aveeno Daily Moisturizer but I think I'm going to start using the Sunscreen/Lotion hybrid creme thing once I finish the daily moisturizer.

Chapstick
Lips need to be hydrated too!! But I always forget that I have them so I just stuck a tube of Burt Bee's Lipbalm into my pencil case so if I'm bored in class or suddenly remeber during school I just put on chapstick.

Hair 
Is hair even a part of your face? I don't know but I sure do work with it. Before I wash it I oil my ends and my roots with Moroccan Argan Oil or regular Coconut Oil. 


Whilst showering I use the Bed Hed moisturizing shampoo and conditioner or the Moroccan argan shampoo and conditioner. 

When my hair is still wet I massage in the BioSilk serum. 

I tend to blow-dry my hair since the air dried version is sooo frizzy and nasty. Before applying heat I use the Moroccan Argan blow-dry protectant and after I use the Loreal Frizz serum.  I just notice how I use mucho Morccan Oil in my hair. Oh well. Go Moisture? 


And that is all! Now I'm no expert but I do have face that I take care of! 

Happy Being Nice To Your Face!- Rida

Fashion Goals.... Literally

hey guess who's back from the dead! well not really because I"m drowning in homework and this was the easiest way to avoid it. Anyways, back to the topic : FASHION! Now, you might be asking yourself, why is a person with 0 fashion sense talking about fashion? Don't worry I won't scar your eyes like I previously have done with outfits of the day, what I wore, stalk my style etc. I'm just here so explain (for lack of a better word) my dream wardrobe and style. 

My closet is terrible. Lately, I've been leaning a lot towards the minimalistic fashion with the basic accessories and colors because I'm lazy. I don't wanna suddenly become a rainbow but, the opposite. I'm in love with the basic patterns and how good people (*cough cough Gigi Hadid,Kendall Jenner , and all the other supermodels with heavenly bodies cough *) look with such basic pieces. I definitely DO NOT have a perfect body but, hey, a girl can try. 
Picture perfect: The catwalk queen kept the chilly British weather at bay with a matching gunmetal coat and completed her look with a pair of stylish crocodile-print boots:  Cooling down: Julianne Hough, 27, looked casual in a grey jumper and white skinny jeans as she stepped out and about in Los Angeles on Thursday: We love Kendall Jenner's simple outfit for heading to the airport! Check out www.travelfashiongirl.com for more suggestions on traveling in style.: Deepika Padukone returning from the #IIFA Awards.:

To get this dream wardrobe I'll need to shift around a couple of clothes and get rid of some of those bright colors with hideous prints that stare down upon you from the back of your closet. I really wanna incorporate more solid colors and basic prints. (ex.stripes)

More long sweaters/ cardigans but I'm not too keen on that since it's so hot in California.

Accessory wise I'm hoping to get basic necklaces, bracelets, and a watch because I lost mine. I don't use purses but I do need the occasional handbag so I'll throw in a couple of those.

Like some of you, I have restrictions on clothing due to religion which makes me dress modestly. That includes shorts, sleeveless tops, ripped jeans etc. I'm not gonna change that so I'm gonna stick to clothes that fit my range and rules to look like a bomb ;). 

This dream transformation probably won't happen but my style will evolve (i hope). If ya wanna stalk me follow me by simply typing my name into whatever social media platform you're on because there's only one person with my name (hint: it's me). 

Well. That was a good conversation.If ya got any concerns,suggestions or any of that kinda stuff leave it in the comments down below.
Happy Slaying! - Rida :)

Rida's Recommendations


Happy Summer! I'm back with another list of recommendations or basically a list of things I've been enjoying lately. 

Let's start with TV shows because what better time for a binge watching TV then the summer. 

1.The Office

As you know I've previously watched Parks and Recreations ,so a lot of people recommended this show to me (like A LOT). I decided to give this shows a go ,but the first season was not too catchy. Like any normal person, I stopped watching and once again my friend told me I had to watch it ,and I'm so glad I did. This show is amazing. It's funny ,has amazing a plot line , and gave first to one of my favourite couples. I didn't get addicted because I was really focused on school when I started this show ,but I assure you that the 9 seasons will fly by.

2.The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt 

IF YOU DON'T HAVE NETFLIX SKIP THIS PARAGRAPH
This show is a netflix original (the reason for the disclaimer above) and surprisingly really good. I went into this show with 0 expectations and I was pleased with the outcome. The main character ,Kimmy, is so lovable and you automatically want to know more about her. This show is only 2 seasons long (26 episodes in total) ,so it's relatively short. If you're not looking for commitment or a quick TV show to lighten up your day,week,month whatever this would be your show. 

3.Jane The Virgin (Currently Watching)

I'm obsessed.I guess I have a thing for drama because I love this show! It's this crazy story about a virgin named Jane(hence the title) who is pregnant. Each episode leaves you wanting more. I am literally binge watching this show (I've stayed up till 2:30 am watching this shows 2 nights in a row.. Help?).

Moving on to books.
I honestly haven't read any .but I'm trying to get my hands on Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Mass. It's the third book in the Throne of Glass books. A lot of people don't like them ,but I found them quite captivating. The series follows an assassin named Celaena Sardothien and her journey. There's great love triangle which automatically makes the book 10x better ,am I right?

Music
My June play list has the following songs: 
1.One Dance By Drake (and other people)
2.i hate u,i love u By gnash
3.This Is What You Came For By Calvin Harris & Rihanna
4.Lost Boy By Ruth B
5. El Perdon By Nicky Jam & Enrique Iglesias
6. Close By Nick Jonas & Tove Lo
7.Never Be Like You By Flume & Kai
8.Too Good By Drake & Rihanna
9.Can't Stop The Feeling By Justin Timberlake

It's also Ramadan so a little Ramadan tip is stay hydrated! Always keep a water bottle with you after iftar.

I recently got a new watch and I like the simple accessory feeling it brings to me. I almost always where it when I go out and It's useful in the weirdest ways. Sometimes, it brings a whole outfit together in this weird professional kinda way and I really like it. 

Lastly, a simple beauty routine. I love to sleep in so I ditched the full on eyeliner and stuck to this basic routine and cashed in about 30 minutes on sleep. 

1.Wash your face.
 If you don't I don't know how you survive. A clean face is like a clean mind. 
2. Moisturize 

It's my least favourite thing to do. It's gross,sticky, and slimy. I hate it. Aye, but if I can get my self to put that nasty stuff on my face, so can you. 
3.Occasional Concealer 

"Conceal, don't feel. Don't let them know... that you have (possibly) a new pimple friend." 
Every has that time when one huge red pimple pops up. Instead of foundation or any heavy makeup I just put on a THIN coat of concealer. Thankfully, my skin hasn't been acting up too much but I do have a friend on my forehead who refuses to go away :( 
4.Kohl 

I apply kohl in my water line and I like that look it gives when it's kinda fading out and it's a little under your eye. It gives my eyes a subtle pop and my face some life. I spare people outside my zombie face :)
5. Chap stick 
My lips are soooo chapped. Chap stick is a must have. I apply it before I sleep, before I leave my house, and any other time I remember.

That's all of the juice I got for now! 
Happy Summer!
