Love seafood, and looking for a bargain feast this weekend? I’ve got you covered! Head to Pharaoh Restaurant at Arabian Courtyard & Spa, located in the heart of Bur Dubai. Every Wednesday and Thursday night, the Egyptian-themed restaurant converts into a seafood haven.

The open buffet starts for as low as AED 99 per head, inclusive of soft-drinks. What I really liked about this buffet is that they had a seafood special from all around the world. 

What’s not to love about Sephora? Arguably Dubai’s number one destination for all things beauty, Sephora keeps upping the game every season with the launch of brand new global beauty brands under its umbrella.

I had the pleasure of being invited to the sneak peek of Sephora’s Summer 2017 launch, and had a firsthand experience of some very lust-worthy products that are scheduled to hit the Sephora shelves around June/July 2017:

Call me crazy, but I love wearing jackets even in the peak of a UAE summer. To me, a well-structured jacket is a lazy girl’s essential. It can pull together an otherwise ‘blah’ outfit, and even make a simple denim and tee combo acceptable for a night about town!

I recently bought this beauty at Zara. I am yet to meet a girl who doesn’t like Zara. This high-street brand seems to have every girl covered, regardless of her size and styling preference, and they strive to stay innovative with their collections.

A couple of weeks ago, a mystery box appeared on my doorstep. Inside was a beautifully iced cake, in the form of a pair of leaves, and a miniature sugar-molded top-hat sat in its midst.

No sender id or address, but apt for today’s times, the cake came with a hashtag #IndulgeInWellness Quite a juxtaposition if you ask me, cos this ‘healthful’ looking pair of leaves was infact a rich, indulgent chocolate cake in disguise! Perhaps the cake was loaded with wellness? We didn’t think much of it, and finished it off by the forkful. 

On the azure blue waters of the Dubai International Marine Club is a lineup of some of the world’s most expensive yachts. Nestled between these beauties is a rustic, deep mahogany dhow. A relic of the past, this dhow has now been converted to an award-winning seafood restaurant; Aprons & Hammers.

The restaurant has bagged the title of ‘Best Seafood Restaurant’ three years in a row at the What’s On awards, and with this scenic backdrop to boot, I knew we were in for a major treat.

Carnival by Tresind, the younger, spunkier sister of Tresind, Dubai’s leading Indian fine-dining restaurant, is always full of surprises. True to its name, the interiors depict a crazy-cool wonderland where trees branch out in illusive shades of rose-gold, quirky Indian artifacts dot every corner, and guests are welcomed on their table with a shower of bubbles.

Carnival by Tresind has recently introduced a set brunch menu, which is valid every Friday from 12 to 4 pm. We were there a week ago, and the place was absolutely packed! Living in Dubai, we are spoilt for choice with brunching options, but here’s 10 very good reasons why you should consider booking a table at Carnival by Tresind this coming weekend:

The French have always been the epitome of style and perceived beauty. From shabby chic interiors to munching macaroons and going on a Chanel No. 5 high, we have all aspired to bring out the Parisian in us in one way or the other.

Last week I had the pleasure of being a part of the launch of a French skincare icon, Rogé Cavaillès. From body lotions and oils to an entire range of body washes and intimate cleansers, the brand has been keeping the French beautiful since 1924!

We are inundated with beauty brands in the market, but how many will survive the near-centennial mark? There are a number of factors that has made the brand Rogé Cavaillès such a phenomenal success:

Asha Bhosle, Bollywood’s very own nightingale who has captured the imagination of generations, needs no introduction. Asha’s, her self-named culinary debut, celebrates the kitchen experiments of this Bollywood legend. The beauty of Asha’s has always been its simplicity. The true essence of Indian fine-dining is never lost here to overly suave modernist ways, and this month, the restaurant pays tribute to the royal cuisines of the North.

The limited edition menu entitled ‘Live Like a Maharaja’ is brimming with a whole array of royal treats that has something for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Here is a look at some of my favorites: 

This week I was invited for an art class by none other than Atlantis, The Palm Dubai. Intrigued, I accepted despite having yet another crazy week at work. It was on a Monday night, and I was almost going to skip it, but so glad I didn’t! Who would have thought an artist’s easel and canvas can be so therapeutic?

Yet this is not your ordinary art class! Located in The Lost Chambers Aquarium of Atlantis The Palm, I am not exaggerating when I say this was an ‘out of the world’ experience.

The other day, I was aimless walking around the mall determined to keep my window-browsing firmly askew from the perils of dipping into my wallet. And then I walked into the NARS store in The Dubai Mall, and got introduced to the NARS Sarah Moon Recurring Dare Cheek & Lip Palette.

It was love at first sight. The minimalist packaging features a mysterious, hauntingly beautiful woman on the cover. She casts a spell on me, and has me swatching and sniffing. I walk around the store weighing out the pros and cons of splashing out from my shrinking wallet.

It costs a whooping AED 320… but its limited edition! And lady at the store said they only have 2 palettes left. Love over logic, the NARS Sarah Moon Recurring Dare Cheek & Lip Palette was coming home with me!
