WARNING! PICTURE-HEAVY POST I’ll never forget my obsession for Vogue magazine which all started when I was a teenager back in the 90’s (before e-zines ever existed). I still have most of the magazines to this day in my old room at my dad’s house, except for the few collector’s editions (*angry face) which got destroyed thanks to a leaking roof, I was most upset … Continue reading Vogue Arabia Shoot
Remember that time during the recession, the beauty industry was not affected because of the ‘lipstick effect’? The only little luxury women allowed themselves to make them ‘feel good’? Now, we have the lip filler effect. All over instagram I see enhanced lips, some look incredible (so good that I feel tempted to plump up mine a bit more) and some, which don’t look so … Continue reading THE YEAR OF THE LIP
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
As the humidity rises in Dubai and glorious summer days make a long-awaited arrival in England, it’s time to lighten your make-up load. It’s easy to get caught in a make up rut and for some, the thought of leaving the house without foundation is not even an option. I am an advocate of natural make up and I’m always going on about enhancing natural beauty … Continue reading Bare faced cheek!
Although double-cleansing has been a part of my skincare regime since 2000, Hollywood starlets embraced the Erno Laszlo double-cleanse as a core principle of their skincare regime back in the 1920’s. Back then, Erno Laszlo urged his clients to switch from cold cream to his now infamous two-step oil and bar soap duo for a deeper, more effective cleanse. As one of the original doctor … Continue reading What do you mean, you don’t double-cleanse?
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!
