I write to like-minded women. A lot of men too actually, but regardless of the gender, we have pretty common busy lifestyles where our schedules are overbooked let alone our worries on what to wear for day and what to wear for dinner. While many people have their different takes on how to dress from day to night, I love to see my fashion line AIISHA as one that addresses this exact need with its huge range of chic looks that are classic yet bold.

Challenges that Joelle Mardinian and I face to keep our hair healthy
The knowledge of protecting our skin from the sun is a pretty common information. What’s interesting is that people don’t often consider the same advise when it comes to their hair and they wonder why it could become dry. UV rays can be very harsh on your hair as much as they are on your skin. Pair that with humidity and you get unpleasant dry and frizzy results increasing hair fall and even damaged hair roots.
