FASHION / CHEAP & TRENDY SUNGLASSES

I was looking for some trendy sunglasses and I knew THE place to find them: China. I found them (after searching for a long time with a lot of keywords) on Aliexpress and they were cheap af! They're not a brand and of course not the highest quality but I abuse my sunglasses so much, plastic is better for me! The only downside to Aliexpress is that it takes around a month to arrive in Europe. The website is actually really safe and they guarantee you'll get your money back if something isn't how you wanted or it didn't arrive. Check below for the links to these exact sunglasses and let me know if you order (& receive) them :)

MAKEUP / TOUCHE ECLAT (YSL X ELLE)

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to collab with YSL. For the 25th anniversary of the legendary touche eclat they chose me and 24 other belgian bloggers to participate in an awesome video project. I got my hair and makeup done and had a scene where I had to party and dance. It was the first time I was actually in front of the lens (other than my own) so surreal! I've always had a passion for 

modeling

 / acting so this was kind of a taste of that! You can read the article

BTS MODEL VIDEO

A short BTS video I made of my latest shoot! The weather was amazing and I stepped out of my comfort zone by shooting in harsh afternoon sunlight. We were waiting for a beautiful sunset but the sun just disappeared behind the clouds...Oh well, at least I caught the moment before.

MAKEUP / KIM KARDASHIAN ARABIC INSPIRED

A few weeks ago I made a video and photos for my Zalando entry (see blog &

here

). I wanted to talk more about the makeup look I chose for this shoot. I asked my friend Amel (mel's beat face) what she thought was a modern meets arabic makeup look. She sent me an image of a Kim Kardashian smokey eye with a twist - a reverse smokey eye:

I decided to change up the lipsticks during the shoot

 and used a nude, a dark grey and a darker dusty rose. I also drew on some berber tattoos with a gel liner.

FASHION / MODERN MEETS MOROCCAN LOOKBOOK (Zalando Style Icons // Creative Content Icon)

This is my entry for the Zalando Style Icons // Creative Content Icon Award. https://www.zalando.be/creative-content-icon-2016/

MIXED INFLUENCES (COLLAB WITH AMY WISSAD)

For this lookbook I was inspired by my rich and beautiful moroccan heritage, as I am half moroccan and half belgian. I mixed a lot of traditional items and looks such as baboushes, the caftan, silver jewelry, berber tattoos,...with modern items to create a different and interesting combination. The whole concept just came together and it's definitely a statement on connection and unity in a time where this is really needed. I teamed up with a designer with moroccan roots and added some pieces I borrowed from my mom. Tradition meets reinvention, patterns meet minimalism, cultures meet each other. I also chose this subject for my entry because I want to show that having different origins and cultures is a beautiful thing and it enriches our lives if we let it.

Show it and celebrate it

.

I did the photography, videography, editing, makeup, styling and art direction. So proud of the result!
