‘Tis the season to sparkle and shine!

I’ve created two festive looks; one with the classic sparkly eyes and bold red lips, and the other with a more cleaner base and subtler lips. I’m pretty obsessed with the Tarte Winter Wonder Glam Eyeshadow Palette, and used it for both looks.

Which one of these do you prefer?

On our second night at JA Resorts, we had dinner at Phoenicia (JA Beach Hotel).

Headed by celebrity Australian-Lebanese Chef Greg Malouf who is widely credited for being the master of modern Middle Eastern cuisine, the restaurant is named after an ancient Mediterranean civilization which now forms a part of modern-day Lebanon.

On our first night at JA Lake View Hotel, we dined at Kinara by highly acclaimed celebrity Indian chef, author and Bollywood actor Vikas Khanna.

I had the pleasure of dining with Chef Khanna a couple of years ago at his award-winning restaurant Junoon. Handsome as he is charismatic, he has harnessed his talent at recreating Indian classics with much panache and ease, and I was therefore very excited to try his menu at Kinara.

Imagine going for just 2 nights away, and Instagram telling you that your Insta Stories can’t take any more uploads… that’s how click-happy I got throughout my weekend away at JA Resorts, Dubai’s largest experience resort!

Located in a quiet corner of Jebel Ali (Dubai) and minutes away from the Expo 2020 site, JA Resorts is a sprawling 128-acre resort boasting of three 5-star luxury hotels (JA Beach Hotel, JA Palm Tree Court and JA Lake View Hotel), an 800 meter private beach, a world-class golf course and tennis courts, 25 restaurants and bars, an equestrian center and so much more.
