VIDEO! Tried & tested: Hydrafacial

If there’s a treatment that I absolutely love, it’s facials. I like exploring new treatments and I recently tried out the Hydrafacial here in Dubai at the Novaclinic. Anything that improves the health of my skin, I want! There are many benefits to the hydrafacial but most importantly, it’s a great instant hydration boost & it clears out the skin within minutes.

Tumblr Thursday: Sweetest Summer Ting

I am dreaming of a European summer… Either in south of Italy or along the French rivera but I’m trying to avoid the high season. This is probably what I would dress like if I were to spend the summer in Europe. Espadrilles, a basket bag & anything white made out of cotton.  I’m currently loving this very minimalistic style, it’s laid back yet feminine & chic.

Review + swatches: Marc Jacobs “Highliner Gel Eye Crayons”

Swatching make-up products is one of my favorite thing to do. When I got the full range of these high pencils last week at the Hung Vanngo masterclass, I couldn’t wait to swatch them!

Casual day in Dubai + outfit look

It’s officially summer in Dubai and it’s so hard to choose what to wear! Every summer it’s a challenge, outdoors its hot & humid and indoors it’s cold because of air conditioning. I’m currently loving these flared pants, especially with this weather. The fabric is quite thin and you can dress it up or down depending on the occasion. I had a casual day, running errands and stopping by a few events that were happening in town.

Najla Kaddour in Sunny Amsterdam

Quick trip to my beloved Amsterdam

Amsterdam is incredibly beautiful when it’s sunny. I was lucky enough to be there just in time for Cherry Blossom season. Having lived in Amsterdam almost all my life, I never realized that the city has so many cherry blossom trees. I only realized this now after not living there anymore. Having said that, it was much colder than I expected/wished.

What did I get up to during this short trip? Shopping, cycling around the city, eating good food and catching up with friends and family.

Murad skincare is finally launching in the Middle East!

The other day I got to attend the launch event of dr. Murad skincare products in Dubai. I’ve heard and read many great things about the brand so I’m excited for the launch. The breakfast event was inspired by the healthy vegan life since it’s an L.A. based brand. The food was amazing! Anyone that knows me well, knows that I’m addicted to acai bowls. I’ve never had green acai bowl before but it was really good.
