Gosh, it’s been a while since I have had the luxury of time to spare a few minutes on my blog, partly because of moving onto pastures new and also feeling like I want to give more to my readers than just products ‘I love’…. A bit of an update for you all, I left my corporate job for the creativity and freedom of joining … Continue reading Micro-influencers, Maximum engagement
Well, hello there! It’s certainly been a while. I have been studying and training for my Pilates mat as well being a busy little bee with my YouTube channel! Yes, that’s right, after years of procrastinating about it, I only finally went and did it! Hurrah!! The title is misleading, I don’t have a ring light or fancy camera but I am getting my action … Continue reading Lights..Camera..Action!
I think I am a tortoise! Seriously, after recently being told tortoises don’t drink water, they get all the fluids they need from vegetables, it reminded me that I hardly ever drink water, which has been a life-long problem for me. Water maintains body temperature and maintains blood circulation, and I tend to only drink water when I am thirsty, so to discover H30 by … Continue reading Hello Beautiful, Hydrated Skin
After 4 days of intensive training including lectures, 45 hours of additional training, a written exam, and a practical exam (which was being filmed) I became a pilates graduate! I chose to study with A Life of Energy, co-founded by Australian health expert, Caroline Leon, an incredibly strong woman who I have come to admire. With 2 degrees (Medical Science being one of them), Caroline … Continue reading Journey of a Pilates Graduate
Although I have reverted back to glossy lips for the summer, I just had to review the Huda Beauty lip contour pencils. I was given Bombshell a few months ago, which is a nude-pink and have been wearing it ever since! The texture is buttery-soft but not too soft (although I do keep it in the fridge for a few hours before sharpening it) and … Continue reading #BELIEVETHEHYPE| Huda Beauty Lip Contour pencils
Gosh, it’s been a while hasn’t it? I have so much to blog about but I honestly don’t know where to start. I guess I should let you all know that my UK phone is out of use at the moment until I go back to England (so for everyone with my UK number, send me an email so I can send you all my … Continue reading Ramadan, broken iPhone and stuff!
On the 36th floor of the H hotel, you’ll find a sweet little spot aptly named ‘Play’. I heard about this place last year and also heard/read mixed reviews, some positive and some, not so positive. Either way, I like to judge for myself, so I finally headed over with Mr QB, She-earl, Madame Sara Larabi and Miss fusspot Mary, a good mix of people … Continue reading Play with your food
Although Ramadan is just a few days away and I will be going on my annual social media detox, this week has been unexpectedly full on and unusually experimental…I’m talking about food here, I finally got to visit some of the places on my bucket list and first up is Treehouse Lounge, the ultra-cool rooftop spot at the Taj Hotel in Business Bay. It’s hard … Continue reading Playtime at the Treehouse
Not long after I arrived in Dubai, I was suffering from the most horrendous rash on my neck. I have one picture which was when the rash was on it’s ‘best behaviour’, so it wasn’t so bad BUT at times, it was scaly, red, sore and looked TERRIBLE! I tried everything and went to dermatologists and doctors who told me it was ‘an allergy’. I … Continue reading Skin bacteria
I tried to be vegan and lasted all of…..one day. I just can’t survive without chocolate, look up chocaholic and you’ll see my mugshot (while I am typing this blog, I have already been through A LOT of French chocolate, thanks Carine). Although I failed at veganism, some incredible vegan brands have scored big time with me. First up is Aromi Matte Liquid Lipsticks, a … Continue reading Beauty goes Vegan
