I love having a signature scent. A scent that reminds people of me. One that makes friends and family say Ranim, this totally smells like you. Then you know that you own that scent! Actually, this is not so easy to achieve. There are a couple of super popular perfumes out there that just everybody seems to have. And even though you might say that the same scent would smell differently on different skin, some perfumes are just too recognizable and strong to develop that uniqueness. Continue Reading
„Only 20min until rehearsal! Guys, you need to be ready by then!“ says one of the trend coaches of the Wella Professionals team backstage before the show by Antonia Goy.
The stress that designers experience right before they showcase their new collection during fashion week is pretty intense – I’m sure most of us can imagine that. Working half a year on a collection and having only 10 min to present it to the world is definitely nerve-wrecking. However, we do not think that much about all the other people involved in creating the perfect look for the runway. Dressers, stylists, make-up artists, hair stylists… of course they too must be pretty much under pressure! Continue Reading
Guys – believe it or not, I am still without a laptop. Turned out, I had to go the complicated way to get my German-keyboard Macbook Pro delivered to Copenhagen. Basically, I am shipping it to Germany just to have it shipped further to me here in Denmark. So fingers crossed, I will receive it by beginning of next week and then finally have my most valuable working capital back again! Oh, how I am handling it right now? Well, university library and taking every opportunity my friends don’t need their laptops to sneak in and use theirs! ;) Continue Reading
Sorry guys – it took me quite a while to post this second look from Berlin Fashion Week, which is why I will just pretend it’s a normal outfit post, haha. There are quite few reasons for the delay – obviously related to my move to Copenhagen – but mainly because my laptop died a few days ago. It was an accident, but fortunately I was able to rescue the hard drive, which is why I have the amazing opportunity to share these photos with you. Continue Reading
Only three days before Berlin Fashion Week started I spontaneously decided that I will book a train from Copenhagen to Berlin. Until then I was convinced that I am going to miss it because I would have just moved to CPH and because it would have collided with my first hours of summer school. Well, have you ever heard about FOMO? It stands for Fear of Missing Out – and this is exactly what I had. I received a couple of super cool invitations to shows and events and I just could not let go of them. Sure, my first priority should be university, but then I thought… it’s just one week I am missing – one week of content I could easily catch up with when I am back. YOLO! Haha, so I booked, went back to Berlin and had an amazing week. Continue Reading
When I was a kid, my hair used to be almost blond during the summers. I remember my Mum cut one small piece of my blond hair in order to keep it as a proof for when I get older. She still has it wrapped in a piece of cloth I believe. Too funny.
The reason for my unusual blond hair was that every year my family and I went to spend the summer in Egypt – obviously with my hair being exposed to the strong sun the whole time. Continue Reading
