I'm Back! (With Pictures and Updates!)

Hello lovelies!

I'm back from my week off! Although, I didn't actually get much done. Bowie was sick for a while and refusing to eat, which was really stressing me out. And then I got sick, too! I still have a little bit of a sore throat and stuffy nose, but the fever and headache are gone, thankfully.

Anyway, I wanted to show you guys some pictures from my sister's graduation party. She recently graduated from college over here and we threw a small party for the family. Everything was soo cute and yummy! I didn't even have a chance to take pictures of everything, but here are the things I managed to snap. Everything was even more special because my sister and mom made most of the decorations themselves. And they did such an amazing job!!

I just loved these! There was so much candy! We still have loads left!

 In hindsight, I probably should've taken a picture of a different colored balloon!

 How cute are these?? My sister glued little googly eyes to the chocolates and made all the hats herself, too!

 Cupcakes! These were provided by a woman who works at my dad's office. How cute are they? They were so delicious. I don't normally go for chocolate cupcakes, but these were sooo good! And check out the UAE flag in the back. It's actually my sister's clutch. haha so patriotic! :)

 My mom made tons of these pinwheel flowers. How pretty are they? I don't know where the little piggy bank came from, but it's adorable! I wanted to steal it, but I think one of my little cousins beat me to it! :(

I should have a FOTN to post soon. You know how it is, though. You take like 100 pictures and it takes ages to find just ONE decent one! GARGH!

In blog news, I'm going to try and fix some stuff around here. I am also going to try and structure my posts a little bit. I am also adding some new series!

Here are some of them:
  • We Love Wednesdays: Because Wednesdays are so close to the weekend! I'm going to post about my favorite thing (product, album, dress, blog etc) of the week.
  • Friday Fashion: A weekly post about anything fashion-related
  • Inspired By: I'm going to aim to make this a weekly post. Basically, I'm going to try and recreate something I've seen online, or in a magazine, or wherever. It might be a makeup look, a DIY project, an outfit or even a recipe.  

Oh, and I'm going to be going away at the end of the month. I leave on the 28th to go to the Philippines with my parents and sister! Both my parents just fell in love with that place and have been spending time there every year for the past four or five years. This is my third time going and I'm very excited because I've learned that they sell Wet N Wild and Laura Mercier as well as NARS and Covergirl! Awoohoohooo!! :)

I'm going for three weeks, so I would love some guest bloggers. If anyone is interested, send me an email (aseya@prettyinthedesert.com) or a tweet (twitter.com/aseyaxx). I'll probably be blogging from there, but I don't know if I'll be able to blog as frequently as I do from home.

So....how's everyone been??
