My Idle Passion

I received an inquiry recently on a post I did a long time ago about Arabic Calligraphy's many marvels.
I want to thank him actually for awakening my idle passion I have for this art. Would love to start learning it, hopefully soon.

Some of my findings whilst revisiting the beautiful world of Arabic Calligraphy. All work done by Josh Berer.

Coral again and I'm not complaining..

Coral is the color trend for S/S 2012 and what a delicious color it is.

From dresses to pants to shoes and bags, coral mania is everywhere and I'm loving it.

Coral looks amazing accessorized with gold, so unleash the bohemian goddess in you!

The dress can be found here, the look that fed my coral obsession is here.

Playful eyes..


Okay let's be honest here, as much as I love this look as much as I think.. Can any fashionista over the age of 18 pull this off ? 

YESSS! Ofcourse we can, colors don't have to be rainbow (even though I'm liking it very much and have decided to try it) we can do it in ombre too.

My last post was over a year ago, let's hope I post the next one sooner :P

Get the look here .

Words simply do not do justice to this piece of art.

Art , plus you can see what time it is , 2n1 on your wrist!

Luxurious night bird peers back at you with deep purple jewel-set eyes, making for an ultra-lavish look.

The last watch is not of my preference though.

Will start at $215000.

Muscat , Oman is.. of the most surreal places I have ever visited. The incredible landscaping, the rocky hills surrounded by blue water is just magnificent. The people are as beautiful at heart as the surroundings.

Pity I was on a business trip and had not enough time to do good sightseeing.

Please forgive the poor quality of photos I blame myself for not taking my camera (forgot my tooth brush too) instead I was left using my blackberry's worst camera ever.. I was utterly annoyed but less is still better than none. Oman is definitely on our list for upcoming vacations and how can we forget Zighy!

The yacht is the Sultan's and it's decked at the old port for everyone to see..
First and last photos are the views from hotel room.

On a different note , what I'm reading:
One Hundred Years of Solitude,by Gabriel García Márquez
I'd love to  hear your reviews.

Dreaming of Zighy

Sigh.. I'm simply out of words,, speaking of words sounds funny 'Zighy' but would never associate it with such scenes.. just breathtaking..
Is it just me or do these seem out of this world!
And so close to Dubai!! The over built over marketed over everything Dubai!

Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay is located on the northern Musandam Peninsula in the Sultanate of Oman. Zighy Bay is located 120 kilometres, or 90-minutes drive from Dubai International Airport, which is the gateway city to Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay. The setting of the indigenous village style accommodations and private marina is dramatic, with mountains on one side and a 1.6-kilometer sandy beach at Zighy Bay, on the other.
