Five Favourites from the Week | No. 7

These are a few of my favourite things!

LORALI by Laura Dockrill:
This is one of those books I kept putting off to read - simply because I really wanted to like it - and having finally got round to reading it, I really liked it!! It's so wonderfully written and a wild roller-coaster of a tale! Laura Dockrill is one talented lady (and utterly lovely!).

I mentioned finally getting round to posting on my blog related Instagram in my Little Notes - and I've been proper getting into it - it is so much fun and I cannot believe it took me so long!

Little doodles:
Another thing I've been really quite enjoying is doodling - little things like this and this. I'm working on getting better and all but so far digging it!

Revlon Lipbutter in Wild Watermelon:
I did a review of this earlier in the week so I'll spare you - but this colour is definitely one to try!

That is - wearing several rings at one time, like the little rebel I am (not). Especially these ones from New Look that are so lightweight (albeit a little too big for me) that I barely feel them. Which is basically the best!

What are your favourites from the week then?
Until next time!


Monsters | Emerald Fennel - A Review

MONSTERS by Emerald Fennel

This book though! I've been pushing it at everyone for the longest time because it is so utterly brilliant.

In a nutshell it's 'a book about two kids that's definitely not for kids'. It so deliciously dark, and a little bleak. But the dry humour is what really makes it - there are actually some laugh out loud moments but also 'gosh I shouldn't be laughing that's terrible' times too. Though the ending did leave me a little horrified so there's that!

If you're looking for a slightly unsettling yet darkly humorous read, with plenty of murder - this will definitely be right up your street!

So what book would you recommend?
Until next time!


Revlon Wild Watermelon Lip Butter | A Review

Revlon Wild Watermelon

I know, I know, tis the season for dark plum lips and deep berry shades (like the stunner that is 17 Rule Breaker . . . ), but do you see this beautiful bright reddish orange?? It's one of those that brighten your whole face and that's always a win in my book!

As with the rest of the Revlon Lip Butter range, it's creamy and moisturising (like the name would suggest . . .) and lasts pretty well for what it is!

Even though Wild Watermelon is a perfect Summer hue - another of my favourites - Red Velvet is just the shade for this weather. Though at the moment, I'm enjoying Wild Watermelon too much!

Have you tried the Lip Butters?
Until next time!



Little Notes #12

A delicious raspberry tart that I devoured earlier this week 

.1. I get very concerned when I see someone smoking weed or something at 6 in the morning - I feel like going up to them all like: 'okay darlin' let me just bin that for you and you go and sleep off that bad decision hmm?'

.2. Clearly I should mind my own business

.3. It's almost the Christmas holidays!! Hurrah hurrah hurrah!! Alhamdulilah! I cannot wait - I mean I do love my job thankfully but I want to have lie-ins, and stroll around in my jimjams and read more books and visit places and hopefully blog more!

.4. Instagram is rockin' my world at the moment - like I think it's bae (and no, I will not stop being basic). I've finally started posting and you can check it out @AsmaaWrites (shameless plug!)

Until next time!


Breakfast at Damascena

Ooh la la! Look at me being all fancy fancy-like having breakfast out! And not just your standard either but proper exotic like  as if I'm on holiday. No I kid. It was your standard Syrian fare and it was lovely. I went with one of my friends who I haven't seen in too long and we nattered the morning away. So all in all, a perfect Sunday morning alhamdulilah!

Did you have a good weekend?
Until next time!
