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
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!
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
