RAsha Yousif

I have always loved and appreciated photography but this photgrapher has gotten all my 5 senses hightened with every image and with every audio slideshow.

She is a dear friend and a member of Bahrain Bloggers. It’s about time she edit the ‘aspiring’ part and give her self the title she well deserves. Read the rest of this entry »

The Fyunka Girl Is Coming to Bahrain!

Fyunka is a fashion accessories line created by Jeddah-based designer Alaa Balkhy.  Fyunka is an Arabic slang word and can be defined as a ribbon bow. Balkhy will be selling her exclusive handbags, tote bags, cosmetic pouches, iPad cases, pillows, and more products. “I’m very excited to showcase my collection at BAB Market in Bahrain,” enthused Alaa Balkhy.

 First launched in June 2011, Fyunka has become hugely popular because of its strong fashion focus and stylish illustrations that most women in the Middle East can relate to.  The Fyunka brand is all about adding a pop of design into one’s wardrobe with quirky quotes, illustrations and a range of colors.

I am so excited to introduce you all to the fabulously shabby chic – Pachachic launch.  Bahrain be prepared to see the perfect dainty, floral, lace inspired tea party ever to hit the island and you are all invited!  The perfect setting to introduce the soft launch of this soon to open concept store.  Two sisters who are avid admirers of unique furniture & accessories have brought their love to reality by offering high-quality, affordable shabby chic products and services.  They know from first-hand experience when they were furnishing their own homes, they couldn’t find any appealing shabby-chic furniture or accessories and ended up ordering from abroad.  It didn’t take long for them to realise that there was no dedicated shop focusing on shabby-chic furniture and home accessories in Bahrain. That is how ‘Pachachic’ was born, Bahrain’s first shabby chic store offering unique and affordable shabby chic, vintage style home accessories to compliment any home.  Read the rest of this entry »
