:: accessories ::
zahraa prefers accessories which compliment her sophisticated style – nothing too over the top for this girl. judging from her favorite accessory picks, it seems that zahraa prefers adding small, feminine touches rather than making a statement. how fabulous are those frey willy cuffs?
:: beauty must-haves ::
zahraa’s beauty must-haves are items that every woman must have in her vanity. take note ladies, sunblock and ren moisturizer are the secret to her gorgeous skin. essie nailpolishes, ysl rouge and guerlain bronzer are classic beauty items if you are looking to glam up your look.
