I only have three more days left in Brasil! :( I can’t believe time has flown by so quickly. I’ll be back in the US soon and Ramadan is only a few days away. Wasn’t it just January?
Uploaded a few of my Brasil pictures from my phone. Most pictures have been taken from my camera and I haven’t gotten around to uploading those yet. More to come. :)
I miss dancing
When I wish a kid I used to be a dancer. I did ballet and tap, I was never a professional but it was fun and it kept me out of a trouble. I stopped dancing when I was in high school.
A few weeks ago I was asked to participate in a debkah performance with a local Arabic musical ensemble. I’ve been practicing and the performance is on June 3rd. All this dance practicing is making me regret that I ever stopped dancing.
It looks like I’ll be headed to Brazil in July. I get to spend a least a few days of Ramadan with my grandmother.
Coming back to work after an awesome weekend on vacation is brutal. I had such a great time in NYC and at one point started wishing I had moved there for college after high school. Then I remembered that paying $2000 to live in a shoe box while battling extreme weathers isn’t that fun. You are great for a weekend though New York. :)
I’m jumping on a plane to NYC tomorrow to celebrate my birthday with two of my girlfriends. I can’t wait.
Any suggestions of where to go?
Anonymous asked: I love your eyebrows!!!!!! Do you have any tips?
Well thank you. :) I’m a bit obsessed with my eyebrows so I appreciate the compliment haha.
First, I would say if you’re not happy with your current eyebrow shape grow them out as much as possible. I had an incident in Jordan years ago where they butchered my eyebrows. I grew them out for about 3-4 months without touching them. It looked horrible and I hated it but it was so worth it when I finally got them done.
Second, do not ever and I mean EVER get your eyebrows waxed. Stick to threading. There’s so many reasons why you should stay away from waxing your brows. When it comes to shaping the brows threading results in a much more precise and clean shape. When you do go to someone make sure to bring pictures of what you’re hoping to achieve. Just remember that your brows probably won’t look exactly like that because your face maybe shaped different or your brow hair maybe different. Also make sure to do your research on who is threading your brows. Stay away from those mall kiosks. If you’re in the Bay Area or LA let me know and I can recommend some people.
Third, if you don’t have thick and full Middle Eastern eyebrows like I do don’t be afraid to fill your brows in. When I worked as a make-up artist I would use either a brow pencil or shadow depending on the state of the persons brows. There’s plenty of great YouTube tutorials out there that’ll teach you how to do this without looking like a clown.
Hope that helps.
