A colorful winter with River Island.





Black, grey, brown... Who says winter wardrobe only needs to be of darker colors. You can always keep warm in some colour too. Especially Dubai winter where sweaters are the best way to look chic and warm at the same time. 
River Island has one of the best winter collections this season. From jumpers to sweaters to even leather jackets and faux fur coats in case you're traveling for holidays. Don't forget it to check it out x

Beauty Review : Nicolas & Jean

I recently visited Nicolas & Jean to freshen my hair color. 

So let me tell you a little about the salon. 
The salon is located in media one hotel. 
The staff is extremely sweet and very welcoming (a bunch of good looking men who are very helpful as well). 

I got my hair done by Nicolas, one of the owners. He's an expert with hair color and advised me to go for a slight ombré and I said Yes! 

He dyed my hair brown and went for a light blonde on the ends. I'm really happy with the new color and if you're curious to see it, check my instagram out. 

I would recommend the salon for hair treatments, hair color and hair extensions. Oh wait, not to forget, for an AMAZING blow dry!

A beautiful morning with Narciso Rodriguez perfumes,k






I spent a lovely afternoon with my favorite range of perfumes that were first introduced in 2003. Initially known as the amazing fashion label, Narciso Rodriguez entered the beauty market with a bang with his fragrances. People around the world are crazy about these perfumes and this happened in a very short span of time.
The new range that I had the chance to try this week is a combination of different ranges from a subtle range to a strong Oud range which would definitely be successful in this market.
My personal favorite is the classic 'For Her' range. Subtle, feminine and simply refreshing. I recommend to everyone who likes light, floral perfumes.

H&M Studio AW15 Collection

Layered collection of effortless pieces with a tomboy feel, sporty energy, utilitarian futurism and starburst shine are the themes at H&M Studio for autumn/winter 2015. Zip-up coats and jackets have a modern freshness, while rollnecks are a season's essential, along with lurex sweaters and pants -both straight legged and flared. 

"I love the attitude and energy of H&M Studio for autumn/winter 2015. Sporty zip-ups are perfect for the street, while rollnecks give a layered look. The shimmer of lurex makes it a season to celebrate, whether it's day or night," says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M.

THEMES

-        Zip-up outerwear is important, from utilitarian quilted nylon zip-up coats and long gilets, to camel wool coats with ribbed waists or tailored wool coats with an inner layer of zip-up nylon.

-        Knitwear is a key focus, especially rollneck and turtleneck sweaters in varying styles. Lurex knits are for day to night, while ribbed and zippered knits have sporty energy.

-        Pants are either straight-legged or kicking into a wide flare, while ribbed-knit leggings are given an active look.

-        Textures are contrasted with the sheen of laminated wool on jackets and skirts, fake fur coats, matte wool tailoring and sequin blouses.

-        Futuristic starbursts appear printed on pieces such as lurex blouses and rollneck long-sleeve dresses, or woven as a jacquard for a tailored pantsuit.

-        The look is layered, especially with long dresses worn over matching pants, or long asymmetric silk blouses worn with rollneck knits.

-        Utilitarian pieces highlight the tomboy mood, such as ski dungarees, or zippered fine-knit rib jumpsuits.

FABRICS

Wool, lurex, nylon, leather, suede, faux fur and silk.

COLOURS

Burgundy, rust red, pumpkin orange, dark green, camel, grey melange, black, off-white, gold, bronze and silver.

KEY LOOKS

Zip-up quilted coats, rollneck sweaters, lurex knits, straight-legged or flared pants, asymmetric blouses, laminated wool skirt, ski dungarees, fake-fur zippered coat and starburst print flared pantsuit.

KEY ACCESSORIES

Utilitarian caps, laminated boots, long driving gloves, heeled sandals worn with socks, moon boots, faux rollnecks and laminated bags.

Beauty : The Versace Eros Pour Femme


The new Versace Eros Pour Femme for women is a once again, a great treat for the Versace fragrance lovers. I have always been a Versace fan when it comes to perfumes such Versace Vanitas and Versace bright crystal which have been my favorites for a very long time now.

Versace eros Pour femme was launched in Dubai about four months ago and has been quite famous since then. It has a strong vibrant smell (not particularly for those who like light fragrances) and is slightly close to the Oud perfumes (perfect for this region). The bottle is beautiful too, perfect for a gift as it comes in a really cool gold box.

An evening with Paule ka

                            

Recently, I was invited to check out Paule Ka's latest SS15 collection and had the opportunity to go through a mini makeover by Nars makeup artists. It was very cool collaboration as both the brands complimented each other perfectly. 
Paule ka is a French ready to wear brand relatively new to the UAE. The brand's latest summer collection had a variety of  cuts, styles and colors from bright Summer colours to pastels. Paule Ka is also known for their ready to wear evening dresses. It's definitely a boutique to check out on your next trip to the mall-perhaps for cool summer finds or even for an outfit for a festive occasion such as Eid.

An evening with Carolina Harrera


I have always been a huge fan of the brand and to meet the creative brain behind it was such an honour. 
Carolina Herrera ,who's known as one of the most elegant women in the world was in Dubai to launch the new CH fragrance line called the House of Herrera. She and her daughter brought the house of Herrera to dubai on a dazzling Tuesday night at the beautiful One and only Royal Mirage Hotel. The soirée was a beautiful affair bringing together fashion society of Dubai from bloggers to media moguls to socialites. 

I wore a beautiful two piece set by the lebanese designer, LamaJouniOfficial

Haute Couture SS15 Fashion Shows - Elie Saab & Zuhair Murad


Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad. Both these lebanese designers blew me off with their  collections. The material, the colours, the beaded work, the silleoutes, the edgy cuts, the colour schemes- basically everything from start to bottom. There wasn't one piece that I didn't like. I'm a sucker for these two designers as they never fail to impress and this season's haute couture fashion shows were a classic example. The collection was so feminine and versatile.
