I took a deep-dive pore plunge this morning with the Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask!

Scandinavian skincare brand Ole Henriksen took inspiration from their homeland’s spa tradition of ending a hot sauna treatment with a cold plunge into the sea with this delightfully bright turquoise cooling mud mask.

‘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?

In the recent months since they’ve launched in the UAE, I’ve become pretty addicted to shopping on the lookfantastic.ae website. This online beauty store stocks everything from skincare, haircare, bath & body and more, and what makes this site more fascinating for me is the fact that they stock so many well-reputed brands that were previously unavailable in our region.

One of these brands happens to be REN Skincare. I’ve seen rave reviews about this brand, and was super excited to find them on lookfantastic.ae

Eating out needn’t be unhealthy. At The Marketplace, Marriott Al Jaddaf the culinary team have created a very special vegan menu for health conscious diners.

Post a very pampering session at Saray Spa on the 7th floor, it only seemed apt that I treat myself to a vegan lunch and give the brand-new menu a try.

Last week I treated myself to some much-needed me time at Marriott Al Jaddaf. Located in a quiet, secluded spot in Downtown Dubai, this 5-star property is minutes away from the city’s main attractions including Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Mall, and the bustling streets of Bur Dubai.

I made an appointment at Saray Spa. Located on the 7th floor of Marriott Al Jadaf, this health and wellness center caters to both men and women and has some amazing deals on offer for this festive season.

I never knew beards were so high maintenance till I met my friend Falah Ud Din Sheryar. His meticulously shaped beard requires a weekly barber’s visit, and he’s honed some insightful skills on how to blow-dry it to perfection.

Sheryar (or Sheru as we like to call him) was kind enough to give me a demo on how its done, and talked me through some daily beard-care routines.

No, I’m not planning to grow a beard! But here it is, all caught on camera for my bearded followers. Hope you enjoy it, click below!
