Tom Ford Spanish Pink Lipstick

BEAUTY


So I had to nip to Saudi Arabia this week for a short business trip and although this may not be the most glamorous of destinations, one thing that I love about traveling is an airport beauty haul.  This trip I was actually very good and only walked away with one lipstick, this Tom Ford classic Spanish Pink.  I could have bought some of Tom's (yes, we're on first name basis) summer special shades but I was pulled away in a hurry and had to make a quick impulse purchase.

DUBAI GIRL VLOG | EPISODE 1 FRIDAY BRUNCH


Vlog movie making an outfit of the day post come to life with my very wobbly camera skills.  It was Friday Brunch, an infamous Dubai tradition where hotels put on a lavish display of food and beverages and party goers flock in mass ready for a day of indulgence and debauchery.  I had quite a cute summer look going on so in this vlog I go through my outfit and make up details.

WHAT I WORE | I'VE GOT MY RED DRESS ON TONIGHT BUT NO SUMMERTIME SADNESS




Off for Thursday night drinks at Caramel in the DIFC before hitting the club and you couldn't miss me in this little French Connection number.  I'm not a huge fan of wearing red, unless its on the bottom of my shoe soles, but this dress I like.

BEAUTY | CHANEL PERFECTION LUMIERE VELVET TRIED AND TESTED



Purchase of the week: Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet and Correcteur Perfection.  I have not been able to avoid the reviews about this foundation since it has become available in Dubai stores, so I had to try this wonder foundation out for myself and make  my own verdict on the Chanel make-up must have.

FEATURE | INTERVIEW WITH DAVID REISS

David Reiss, owner of Reiss

David Reiss, the owner of global British fashion brand Reiss, was in Dubai to launch his Spring Summer 2014 collection to the regions media and to unveil the exclusive Middle East pieces.  David is astonishingly the last big owner-founder left in British retail (according to Wiki), so as you can imagine I was extremely excited to meet and interview the iconic entrepreneur and get an insight into the mind behind one of my favourite fashion brands.

FASHION | REISS EVENT IN KUWAIT




So this week I was in Kuwait, or 'Q8' as the cool (questionable) kids say.  The famous Kuwaiti blogger Dalal Id was making an appearance in Reiss at The Avenues Mall to launch the summer collection and share her style and make up advise with her fans.  Dalal shot to fame in the region after launching her blog two years ago and her popularity, locally and internationally is phenomenal.  You should check out her You Tube channel for beauty tips, as this woman's make up is immaculate and she is very honest about the treatments she uses and the best products to buy, to stay looking bootiful!

WHAT I WORE | LEMON & GREY KINDA DAY





My favourite thing to do, in one of my favourite hotels with one of my favourite people: High Tea at Jumierah Zabeel Saray with my pops.  I have absolutely no idea why but for High Tea I always feel like I have to dress conservatively - does anyone else feel like that too?
