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!!

Photo Diary: Camping on the Omani mountains

I recently went camping with Ryadh (hubby) & Ilyas (my brother) and we went to Jebel Akhdar in Oman. I’ve been camping before in the desert but this was the first time that I went camping a bit further away from home so that was exciting but also a bit scary at the same time. I didn’t really know what to expect up in the mountains, it can get pretty cold at night but I wasn’t expecting the weather to drop almost 20 degrees lower than sea level. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from this trip is to pack thicker and more blankets because we were FREE-ZING!

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!

A Bahraini getaway!

During the month of October I got to stay at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Bahrain and it was my first time to visit the country. I haven’t seen much of Bahrain other then the roads to and from the airport so I’m definitely hoping to come back soon and explore the country a bit more.

As you may know, bleaching your hair is extremely harmful and drying to your hair. As someone who’s got dry hair to begin with, it was challenging to keep my hair healthy, shiny and moisturised through out the bleaching process. In this video I’ll be sharing my tips and tricks on how I kept my hair happy and healthy! If you thought the video was helpful, please make sure to give it a thumbs up.

The most common question I receive is; “How do you fill in your eyebrows?” I’ve already posted an eyebrow tutorial last year but during that time, my eyebrow game has definitely stepped up 😉 In today’s video I’ll show you my current eyebrow routine, make sure to give this video a thumbs up if you thought it was helpful 🙂  

Beauty looks from Fashion Forward

Even though fashion & beauty go hand in hand, I’m not a big ”fan” of attending fashion shows. I’d rather see what’s going on backstage and how the beauty looks are being brought to life. I do have to acknowledge the fact that we’ve got some amazing local fashion talent in the UAE. In this post you’ll find all the beauty looks from this season’s Fashion Forward DXB!

Why you need these neutral palettes in your life!

As a make-up junkie, its hard to choose a favourite product. If there’s something in the make-up market that I love, its palettes! As a make-up artist and for someone that travels a lot, palettes are my holy grail in life! You have everything you need in one palette, its light weighted and its compact. I’ve lined up some of my FAVOURITE neutral palettes at the moment because, a woman can never have too many neutral palettes!
