To celebrate the holy month of Ramadan, Juicy Couture has exclusively designed for the Middle East, a long hoodie and classic snap pocket velour pant, with a beautiful rhinestone crescent and star zipper pull.  I love this hoodie set as I always find it difficult to find long hoodies! I wish Juicy Couture could always have a range of hoodies in this length.  Hope I manage to get my hands on this once I get back.. Check it out at a Juicy Couture near you.

 

Before I left for my summer vacation, I got to go visit the lovely Saffaron in the heart of Muharraq Souq.  Saffaron is the sister cafe of the well known delicious Jena Bakery in Hamala.  The place is run and owned by my friend Narise Kamber who has a passion for food, love for her beloved Bahrain and a soul of an angel.

Saffaron is a must go to place.  You will be whisked back to the days of old Bahrain, eat a traditional Bahraini brekkie (delicious!!!) and feel the true essence of Bahraini warmth and hospitality.  Yes all under one little cosy roof! The premises is situated on a historical site where an old “Madbasa” is located under the ground. More info on that below.

The place can get quite full so you may need to book in advance; timings of the cafe is listed below

I am loving the vibrant colours, shiny sequins and flowy fabrics in Wafa Saifi’s S/s12 collection. The Kaftan inspired dresses are perfect for a ramadan summer.  Wafa Saifi’s designs first strutted the catwalk back in 2009 and she hasn’t looked back since.  Her collections are sold in boutiques across Dubai and Mumbai.  Wafa’s designs are inspired by her roots.  The final product was a luxury womenswear collection inspired by the opulent Rajasthani royal family. Pieces ranged from draped cocktail dresses to shorts tailored from luxury silks. These early pieces have come to embody her design philosophy: beautiful, youthful clothing that at once emphasizes and flirts with a woman’s sensual femininity whilst never compromising on elegant or sophisticated design. Saifi makes clothes for women of the world: not overtly trend-conscious, but rather, influenced in style by travel and experience. To check out more of her collection click here.
