HOW TO PUT DUSTY TOUCH ON PHOTOS

I would do anything for aesthetic. As you might notice instagram is completely consumed by never-ending innovations on how to better photos. Recently I have tried making my way into the dusty-effect-phenomenon of instagram photos because I think they’re cool and cute. Now, I will show you how do I do mine.

Step 1:

Download the Afterlight app (I believe it’s $0.99 and also available for Android) then start exploring and creating. Open the application and choose the photo you want to edit by allowing the app to have access to your photos. You should see the same thing as you see in the image below.

Step 2:

After clicking the square thing, you will see 4 options that will look like the image below. Click the DUSTY one.

Step 3:

This is the final step. After you clicked the DUSTY, you will have 13 different choices of dusty effects. My favourite is number 12 as shown below and I usually click-and-save up to 4 times depending on how I would prefer the opacity of the effects will look like on my photo.

Check out the AFTER photo and other before and after images below.

So, there you have it guys and I hope this is helpful. As always, edit yours according to your liking and personal style. Happy editing!

Love,

A DAY AT THE GREEN MUBAZZARAH

Just a brief background, the Green Mubazzarah is the largest park in the city located in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Developed by Sheikh Zayed, known as the man who turned the deserts green and the founding President of the UAE. Green Mubazzarah is not just a park but also a historic place that the locals hold dear in their hearts. The place is situated at the base of the grand Jebel Hafeet, with its beautiful and lush natural landscapes and desert oasis it has become one of the top destinations for picnic and relaxation during the weekends and holidays.

As expected, yesterday the place was jam-packed with families and group of friends having picnic and quality time. Evidently, my friends and I joined in, we packed our lunch and drove to the place. It took about 25 minutes from the town centre and it will be almost 45 minutes if you’ll take the bus. If you fancy staying overnight, you surely can because Green Mubazzarah has chalets for rent. Check booking.com for the charges.

It is just so fun having to spend the time under the sun, having a meal and lay down the grass to relax and get away from the busy streets of the city. Catching up with my friends is definitely one of the things I should do more. After a long week, it’s right to have a break and do nothing but giggle and chill.

Well, that is it for now. I hope you all are having a lovely weekend!

Love,

The Face Shop//New Finds

For the past few weeks, my skin was a mess! Pimples were popping everywhere (at least only on the surfaces of my face, fortunately), plus it’s that time, that depressing time when you need refills for the products you have gone thru. While my skin was in that not-so-pleasing state, decided to might as well try out other products. I have tried first the serum of The Face Shop and oh I’m loving it! Then, the raving desire went on and now my skin care regime is gradually becoming The Face Shop centred. Haha.

Here are the products I fall in love with:

Pomegranate and Collagen Volume Lifting Eye Cream

I have been loving the eye cream as well. It’s the perfect alternative for the Kiehl’s anti ageing cream one that I used to use because that stuff is very expensive! When I saw the word collagen on the product, I’m sold! In addition, the texture is almost like a serum rather than a cream. Since it is light weight, it gets cold even under a room temperature and once you apply it on your skin it will (kind of) act as a de-puffer too. I use this night and day as part of my skin care routine before I apply any moisturizer on.

Calendula Moisture Serum

My new favourite serum! My skin type is on the drier side and any product that can give me moisture, I’ll be all over it. This product absorbs easily and leaves your skin soft and hydrated but not greasy.

Chia Seed Fresh Lip and Eye Make-Up Remover

I’m not very particular when it comes to make-up remover because I always do wash my face after removing my make-up and follow up with micellar water before I proceed to apply any product on, so, anything will do. However, I like this one particularly because of its name and I know that this is meant to be used for lips and eyes only but I use this on my whole face. This removes everything without stinging your eyes and since chia seeds are packed with protein and antioxidants they’re supposed to be very good for your skin.

Fresh Milk Cream

Instead of using a body lotion, I use this. It’s rich and creamy (hence the name hehe) and moisturises just like your typical lotion would do. I am just a big fan of products that get the job done and absorb quickly. There’s nothing more gross than feeling sticky and waste a minute to wait until the lotion dries up or absorbs before putting clothes on especially when you’re running late (story of my life, always).

These are all my new finds that serve me well and I don’t regret purchasing.

Thanks for stopping by and take care of yourself! xx
