In the picture: Scarf from Splash, Bangles, Henna and Bracelet

Today is the 26th of Ramadan and Alhumdulillah all our fasts are going smoothly well. Even though it was the tough summer season with longer days and shorter nights, Jeddah seems to be burning, but all we need to have is the best intention and faith and Allah eases all the difficulties.
As the days are passing Eid-ul-Fitr is getting closer, I am both excited and worried, excited because we will enjoy yummy 'desi'(traditional) foods and meet people, get 'Eidi'(Eid gifts or money received from elders) and apply Henna on Chaand Raat(night before Eid day when the Shawwal moon is sighted), but worried because of the lack of time and cleaning work is also not completed yet, yesterday we cleaned the fans and walls, mopped floor, washed the window glasses, curtains, cleaned all the glasses and mirrors. Today we dusted the furniture, cleaned the doors, rearranged the shelves and now my legs are hurting, there is still a lot to be done. I am sitting on an armchair with my legs on a footstool and typing this post and sipping tea. Another 2 hours left till Suhoor.
The truth is that I haven't shopped for Eid dresses. I usually do not shop for them because I wear Shalwar Kameez(Pakistani dress worn with 'dupatta') on every Eid and they get stitched by our old and professional tailor. This time I didn't gave her anything to stitch and I thought I will wear something from my last Eid's dresses, there is a dress which isn't worn by me till now and I will go for it, and these accessories in the picture totally match with that dress, luck!
