Ramadan Kareem! Here’s wishing you and your loved ones a very joyous, blessed month.
Ramadan is by far my most favorite month of the year. This month of fasting observed by Muslims the world over is the perfect time for personal introspection, a time for both a physical and emotional cleanse.
Apart from the shorter work hours that we enjoy in our part of the world, I love how everything comes to life in the evenings. The Ramadan markets will soon be abuzz, and the malls are open well past midnight. And the food… we are absolutely spoilt for choice when it comes to both Iftar and Suhoor buffets.
I’ve had the pleasure of trying out a few Iftars, and will keep updating this list as the month goes by. Hope you find it useful!
First there were sheet masks, and now we have rubber masks! I got this rather freaky looking mask from the Sephora beauty event early last month, and finally decided to give it a go.
This, my friends, is the Moist Lover Rubber Mask by Dr. Jart+, yet another innovative skincare product from Korea that is exclusively available at Sephora in the Middle East.
As the name suggests, the sole purpose of this mask is to really, really up the moisturizing level of the skin. Given I have normal to dry skin, I was hoping my face would really soak up all that moisturizing goodness.
Jodhpur Royal Dining is one of my favorite places for Indian fine-dining in the city, and they have really upped their game this holy month with a very special Iftar menu.
The menu is divided into Veg and Non-Veg options, and consists of pre-starters, starters, main-courses, sides and desserts.
Starting off the magical culinary journey, diners get to break their fast with a dramatic selection of stuffed dates.
As much as I love my eggs sunny side up, I often smear uncooked eggs on my face. Gotta love DIY Beauty.
This super simple face mask really does deliver on an instant, dewy glowing complexion and you probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry. And for those of you who fear the stench of raw eggs, the orange and honey really do manage to mask it up!
K-Beauty lovers rejoice! Korea’s much talked about skincare brand Vitabrid is now available in the UAE market.
Harnessing the power of Vitamin C for flawless, ageless skin, Vitabrid C¹² offers an innovative, scientifically advanced range of skincare formulations for all skin types.
I have been using the Vitabrid C¹² Face Brightening Powder for the past 3 weeks, and wanted to share my thoughts with you.
It’s my Birthday! So I decided to do a ’10 Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know About Tezzy’ post. Hope you find it entertaining 😁 .
I have a never-ending love for color, and when it comes to personal style, I am particularly drawn to rich textures and patterns that have some form of cultural significance.
I am a bohemian at heart, and when I saw this outlandishly tribal jacket at Zara, I knew it was calling my name.
I got introduced to Italian makeup brand Zoeva at the Sephora Summer 2017 launch last year, after which the Zoeva Nude Spectrum Eye-Shadow Palette has become a ‘can’t live without’ staple in my makeup stash.
This summer, Sephora Middle East is launching the much-coveted Zoeva Opulence collection featuring an extravagant eye-shadow palette, a ritzy blush palette and a luxurious vegan brush set.
I am now the proud owner of not one, but two Zoeva eye-shadow palettes! While the Nude Spectrum features earthy tones and a balanced mix of shimmery and matte, the brand new Zoeva Opulence Eye-Shadow Palette lives up to its name with a predominantly metallic range of shades that exude the finer things in life.
A couple of weeks ago, my family and I had the pleasure of being invited to newly opened Fogo de Chão in DIFC, Dubai. This fine-dining Brazilian steakhouse might be new to our region, but has been around since 1979. It is rare to come across restaurant chains that have a long lineage of history, let alone one that started with humble beginnings and trail-blazed its presence across continents, proudly showcasing special cuts that are well and truly a part of the Brazilian heritage.
The founders of Fogo de Chão grew up on a traditional Southern Brazilian farm in Serra Gaucha where they learnt the art of churrasco grilling, a milestone that would soon pave the way for their very successful culinary careers.
Last weekend my little family and I were invited to try out the brand-new menu at Carnival by Tresind. This restaurant ranks high on my all-time favorites in the city, and never ceases to amaze. From the magical interiors to the spectacular dishes, all served with the frills and thrills we have become accustomed to when it comes to the Tresind label, I always get a tad too excited when dining here.
The new menu pays tribute to Colonial India, a time when the British reigned the country and had a significant influence on its traditional cuisine.
