1. What inspires your blog’s and posts? 

I take inspiration from my travels, things I read, people I talk to, and styles that I see on the streets. There is a lot of inspiration floating around which catches my interest, this can get overwhelming but I find that when you take a step back and clear your mind, ideas and inspiration pop out from everywhere.

2. Which Blogs and websites do you like to visit in your free time?

I have a few! But on a daily basis, I visit FabsugarRefinery29Honestly..WTFWho What WearDomaine Home and People for celebrity gossip!

3. You have a great sense of style! What tips can you give others looking to inject some style into their lives?

Style is very personal. Your sense of style should be a reflection of who you are. My best advice is to choose clothes or beauty looks that you feel confident and comfortable in.

4. What on earth is a brain fart!? 

Haha! A ‘Brain fart’ is when you come up with the most random, often times stupid thoughts that just really don’t make any sense!

5. Describe Clumsy in 3 words. 

Inspiration, fun, personal

6. Tell us a secret…

I use lavender oil to treat acne. I dab a little at night and it’s gone the next morning!

7.  What do you love the most about Qatar? 

I grew up in Qatar so to me this is home. What I love most about this country is the relationships you build with the people living here, there’s a real sense of community… and having a ladies section especially in the traffic department is pretty awesome!
