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.

Tropical pampering day

It’s my second time to visit this branch of Talise spa, everytime I’m there it reminds me of Marrakech but with the tropical elements of Asia. The spa area is really beautiful and on sunny days you’ll be able to enjoy the pool as well. Talise Spa has so many different treatments but the treatments I had done were the “Full Body Scrub” of 30 minutes and the “Margys Age Embrace Facial” of 60 minutes.

Recap of my birthday week

Last Tuesday (28th of March) it was my birthday, whoop whoop! I kind of spread out my birthday celebrations over the entire week because Ryadh and I both had some work responsibilities so we couldn’t really celebrate on the day itself – however, I did enjoy all the other days. we did a bunch of different things, the weekend prior to my birthday we went for a quick getaway to Abu Dhabi and the weekend after my birthday, Ryadh surprised me with a helicopter tour over Dubai and it was AWESOME!!

How I’ll be spending the last days of 2016 + music playlist

I hope everyone is enjoying their last days of 2016. These next few days I’ll just take it easy and get ready for 2017. My brother is in town so I’m super excited to spend new years with him! I’ve been getting so many requests to share my music playlist so I thought I’ll create a little playlist for you guys that’s mobile friendly then you can listen to it all the time.

Squad riding on quads

The other day, Ryadh, Ilyas and I went to the desert and tried out the quads for the first time. It was such a cool experience and I can’t wait to ride the quads again. If you live in the UAE or if you’re coming here on vacation then its definitely worth trying out!

Three underrated places in Dubai

The other day I decided to explore areas of Dubai that I never really visit. I mean, I’ve lived in Dubai for so long and I’m embarrassed to say that there are still places that I have never visited before. I’ve developed a new appreciation for Dubai, especially the older, less touristy spots. Other than the usual Downtown, DIFC, JBR and Jumeirah, you’d be surprised how “Instagramy” the older part of Dubai is. SHOP MY LOOK

Your perfect guide to color correctors

What are color correctors? How will they benefit you? And do you really need them? I’m sure you’ve seen those viral videos on social media of girls applying orange lipstick under their eyes and green, yellow and purple colors on the rest of their faces. But, does it really make a difference? The technique itself has been around for a while and has been used by make-up artists for quite a long time. Now, it’s become a huge Instagram trend.

My experience at Tony El Mendelek’s hair salon

I get a tons of questions with regards to my blond hair. How I maintain it, if it was very damaging to my hair, if I get breakage etc etc. I feel like I talk so much about my new blond hair color but I still get a ton of questions about it. I recently had my roots done and a little bit of color correction at Tony El Mendelek’s salon here in Dubai.
