Retro Bridal Shower

Hi all & happy Monday!!

Last month I was in Miami, and attended a dear friend’s bridal shower.  The theme was retro housewife with main colors being red and teal, which are also the bride’s wedding colors.  I loved everything about the shower, from the decor that was all done by various family and friends, to the fun games, dessert bar and food!  I became the unofficial “official” photographer of the shower, and it was perfect because I wanted to capture all the lovely moments of the shower and be able to give all the great snaps to my friend who I know will appreciate the snaps after the wedding.

July Favorites

Hello everyone!

I can’t believe the month of July is almost coming to an end. Where has half the year gone?
With that said, I’ve decided to feature my favorites for the month. This list is in no specific order I have added favorites of things that mattered most to the husband and I this month. Enjoy!

Favorite Hijab/Scarf– Light weight maxi hijab from Kapray Shapray on Facebook.
Not sure if she will sell these individually as I received them to match some outfits I ordered from her.

These scarfs are very lightweight making them great for Summer, they give great coverage and drape beautifully without much fuss.  The picture below was taken on my recent trip to Florida.  You can check out more pictures here.

Favorite Beauty Product– Loreal True Match crayon concealer in light/medium & Milani liquid eyes in 01 black.

Both of these products are so creamy and easy to apply. I’ve been obsessed with both of these products ever since I bought them beginning of July.

Favorite Food Dish– Mediterranean Mahi Mahi at Grand Lux
The husband recommended I try this dish and we were so surprised at the flavor of the sauce and how well all the flavors mixed. We will definitely be ordering this Mahi Mahi dish again.

Favorite RestaurantRed Fish Grill in Miami
I’ve lived in Miami for over 21 years and I’ve never heard of this hidden gem of a restaurant. It feels completely secluded and almost a romantic getaway in Miami. And to top it off the food was scrumptious as well. Unfortunately, we didn’t take any blog worthy pics of the restaurant since it was date night, and we visited the restaurant with three other couples to celebrate our Anniversaries which fall within a few weeks of each other. It was a beautiful and romantic evening which was planned completely by our husbands. The husbands swept us ladies off our feet. Alhamdulillah (all thanks to God).

Favorite Dessert– From Margie’s Candies.
We’ve passed by this ice cream shop a few times and always saw so many people standing outside. It caught our curiosity and we finally tried two sundaes, a brownie a la mode and a caramel one. They were both delicious except we had to get them in to-go boxes because we didn’t want to wait to be seated inside.

Favorite Hijabi Outfit of the Day– I loved wearing my wedding outfits this month. So they definitely are my favorites for the month. My wedding outfits were ordered from Kapray Shapray and my hijab/scarf is from Pearl Daisy.

Favorite Couple Shot– Has to be from my brothers wedding this month. More pictures from the wedding can be seen here.

Favorite Couple Moment of the Month– Our 1st Anniversary.
We had a small celebration in Florida with family. We kept it simple since Ramadan had started therefore we went out to a Middle Eastern restaurant to break fast and catch up with family and friends.

Here are a few snaps from the day.

Miami Panorama | South Point Park & Memories

Happy Tuesday everyone!

20130723-114627.jpg
Today I’m skipping the usual Tempting Tuesday post and featuring a panorama I took in Miami at one of my favorite parks. South Point park holds a special place in my heart because it was the place the husband and I had our engagement photo session. I have lived in Miami for a long time and it was only when our photographers suggested the spot did I come to know of this somewhat hidden gem. It’s definitely a sophisticated area compared to rest of South Beach, and to me a romantic spot.

While on my vacation this year I highly suggested South Point park to my family and friends visiting from out of town. While visiting the park with my family and friends this time around I missed my husband (since he flew into Miami closer towards the wedding festivities), because I couldn’t help but think back to the wonderful pictures taken around the park and the beautiful memories we had created.

I did hesitate approaching the park with my family and friends thinking to myself that perhaps I’m the only one who finds the park beautiful because of my connection to it, however to my relief everyone was mesmerized by the beauty of the park. And to top it off everyone enjoyed gelato at the delish and chic 4D, which was also featured in our engagement photo session.

Thank you for reading & visit again tomorrow!
