Lancaster is the absolute must-have in summer for any girl who likes to soak up in the sun. The problem with tanning is that yes, you look much better tanned but it has negative short and long run effects on your skin. Lancaster has found a way to help you beat that with the launch of it’s new Skin Therapy Perfect collection.
Lolita Lempicka reminds me of high school where everyone had the purple one (catch my drift?). Recently, the brand has launched a new Elle L’Aime a la folie fragrance and I just had to blog about it. The fragrance is really pleasant for evening wear, with hints of mandarin, bergamot and jasmine. A definite must-have!
M·A·C has launched a new lipglass called Viva Glam in collaboration with yours truly, Rihanna so when I got it I just had to try it straight away. I’ve mentioned this before but I’ll say it again, I HATE LIPGLOSS! I think its sticky – yucky and ugly. Having said that, even though I personally wouldn’t wear it, its a great product. The color I got is VIVA GLAM Rihanna frosty blue-red and when I wore it, I really wasn’t disappointed because the color was so intense on the lip. I think this is the perfect lipglass to wear on top of a red lipstick to add dazzle (if you know what I mean).
Like all of the RiRi yummies, this is limited edition so I suggest you run over to M·A·C and grab one while stocks last!

Roberto Cavalli isn’t exactly my cup of tea when it comes to fashion but I must admit I really like their fragrances. Personally I like their packaging a lot, the bottles pretty much all look the same just different colors but hey, why fix something that’s not broken?
Yesterday I received the cutest Christmas hamper ever courtesy of Nstyle and couldn’t resist blogging about it. They hand picked their must have colors for the festivities with silvers, chocolates and Bordeaux so I went straight to testing it. My favorite color from the selection was the brown coffee beans with it’s rich chocolate texture.
To be honest the brush isn’t the best for personal manicures because it requires more attention than a thick brush that covers most of the nail in one stroke but the Polish lasted super long and only took 2 coats full a finishing look.
Beauty has never tasted so good is the OCOO beauty drink tag line which I thought was quite a bold claim so I wanted to try it out for myself . I had tried it once before casually but hadn’t really gone into much detail so I though why not find out what this drink is really about. What caught my eye at first was the billboard and lamp post ads on Sheikh Zayed and I kept asking myself; how can I drink possibly make me beautiful; a magic potion perhaps?
Well it’s not that simple. Basically this drink has a bunch of ingredients that are great for the health and skin such as antioxidants and flavonoids like pomegranate which is filled with vitamins B, C, E and various minerals. To add to the benefits, it’s has Acai, cranberries, black currant, red grapes and aronia.
With these great ingredients come benefits such as anti aging ,collagen production and good for the hair. Low in calories and great for my skin; I’m sold!!
Regarding taste, I wouldn’t say it’s the best thing Iv had but when drunk chilled, it’s quite nice. The cranberry taste is really strong which I love and if there was one thing I didn’t love about the taste, it would be the taste of sweetener. The bottle is so beautiful and the festive box is so cute , I was personally sold straight away.
I came across a new brand in the GCC called The Village C which has everything from furniture, personalized home decorations, paintings and much much more and I fell in love. One of the issues in Dubai I feel is that everyone wears the same stuff and our furniture pretty much all looks the same (the convenience of IKEA and Home Center I guess) so it’s super refreshing to find a brand like this here. Their new collection of hand painted Christmas portraits are just so beautiful and personalized I really feel like it’s an amazing Christmas gift to give to a loved one.
For the past year and a half I have been playing with different crazy hair colors like green, blue, pink, purple… You name it but the color never really managed to stay longer than 2-3 weeks. My last hair dye was with Jacques La Coupe and the blue lasted 4 months which was CRAZY!! Today I went back to my go-to hair dresser Johnny Ayoub and we decided to go hot purple! Check it out!! Girls go to Jacques La Coupe in Dubai Address Marina and don’t forget to ask for Johnny .
“For me, the Orient is genuine luxury, beauty and emotion. With Absolute Oriental, I considered the challenge of converting all of this into a fragrance that was the quintessence of the Oriental.” said Angel Schlesser and I completely agree. I recently tried 2 of the new Angel Schlesser perfumes “Absolute Oriental” (which is a unisex perfume) and Oriental Soul (for women) and yummy yum yum! What caught my eye was the packaging (big shocker, I’m such a packaging fanatic…) for both perfumes. Absolute Oriental came in a slick sober box and Oriental Soul in a glitzy gold packaging that just screamed BLING BLING Christmas.
Both perfumes smell amazing but I would lean more towards the Oriental Soul gold one because of its vanilla tones. The Absolute Oriental perfume is a strong statemental perfume that you can rock out to a gala or cocktail party and definitely turn some heads.
