I'm off to London tomorrow, celebrating Christmas in my favourite city in the world with my favourite person in the world! I'll surely be wearing a variation on this outfit when I'm there, I got the coat covered (thrifted for 8euros, ka-ching!), same goes for the sweater (seriously, forget NY or London when it comes to vintage shopping, Amman is the place to be), dress and handbag (thank you Santa), now all I need is a pair of (*cough* affordable) overknee boots, which is definitely on my London shopping list. Who says you can't get yourself a Christmas present?
Hope you have an amazing Christmas with your loved ones! XO

I'm glad to have moved to a more liberal-minded neighbourhood, where ripped jeans and 'fashionable' outfits are less frowned upon, but with the current weather situation, I don't see bare knees in the near future...

All of a sudden winter has arrived in Amman, which has urged me to finally get out the coats, scarfs and gloves. I'm glad to have found two excellent winter coats at the local vintage market, cause I didn't really bring any - who expects cold weather in the Middle East? I can only dream of the boots though, as Amman's pavements aren't really heel-friendly. I've almost reached the bottom of my favourite moisturizer jar from Rituals, as cold temperatures equal dry skin for life. And now if you'll excuse me, I'll go bundle up under my blanket...

After having spent 3 days in Jerusalem I dare to say it has instantly become one of my favourite cities in the world. It's amazing to walk around this Holy City that holds so much history and where you can feel the religious vibe everywhere, not to mention the cultural melting pot that has really stolen my heart. I've convinced my parents to go back when they're coming to visit me around New Year's Eve - I can't wait! My favourite thing about Jerusalem has to be the food though: I've had one of the best meals I've had in years at a small but very hip bar/restaurant downtown, as well as amazing falafel and hummus (topped with pine nuts, need I say more?). Also, I've totally taken over the Jewish Shabbat ritual by not doing anything today, while I actually have to study for my final exam tomorrow. Inshallah, as Arabs would say!
