LM Parfums, named after Laurent Mazzone, the heart and soul of the brand, was established in 2010. Based on the purest French perfumery traditions, the brand boasts of an immense portfolio of luxury scents that blend the best of notes creating uniquely exciting combinations that play on the imagination.

Today we talk to the man himself. Laurent Mazzone had a stint as a DJ, worked in the world of fashion, and has now immersed himself in the field he has been most passionate about since childhood. Here he gives us a glimpse into the creative world of perfumery, and tells us how he self-taught himself into becoming one of the world’s most sought-after newcomers in the game of scents.

The UAE is truly the platform for blending East with West. When it comes to the world of fashion, Adam Irija is the perfect example.

Adam Irija is a Swedish designer from Stockholm. Taking a leap of faith outside his comfort zone, the suave young designer has established himself as a creator of stunningly beautiful abayas (the gracefully modest dress worn by Arab women).adam irija designer interview

Adam is a qualified architect. A chance encounter with fashion led him to apprentice with a house of fashion for over 8 years. This helped Adam strengthen his wings, and he soon took flight into the colorful, magical world of fashion.

Today we talk to Adam about his journey into fashion, how he seamlessly blends East with West, and what he believes every fashionable person should have in their wardrobes.

Happy Mother’s Day to all you beautiful mothers out there!

Meet Hermelinda. She too is a mum, and has been working in the UAE for the past two decades. Her heart-wrenching dilemma caught the attention of Radio Spice’s RJ Bhairavi, and went on to prove how big-hearted Dubaiites can be.

It’s Mother’s Day today; the perfect day for a post on a loving mother with a heart full of love and hope. Grab a box of tissues, and read on about Hermelinda and her reunion with her beloved son Jonathan.

This is the very first Mother’s Day card Farasha has made for me. Mummy treasure!

 

In the UAE and the neighboring GCC countries, Mother’s Day falls on 21st March but having been raised in New Zealand (where my mother resides!), my calendar always alerts me to the second Sunday of May.

This year, Mother’s Day in the West falls on 10th May (the second Sunday of May), and I thought it would be apt to dedicate a post to this special date.

I had the pleasure of attending Fashion Forward Season 5 this month, and on Sunday 12th April Lebanese born Lama Jouni debuted in the Dubai fashion scene with her Autumn-Winter 2015 collection.

I shared a few sneak peaks from her collection with you here, and in today’s post we talk to Lama herself; her enviably fashionable background, her passion for design, and her invaluable tips every woman should be aware of.

I introduced you to Justyna Stocklosa in my previous post on blogging. Justyna’s Instagram page entitled Fit Shortie Eats has made her a bit of a celebrity in the world of clean eating.

Today we take a peek into her life; on turning fruitarian overnight, staying fit, managing an enviably stress-free life, and her passion for food photography. She’s one impressive chic. I told you I have phenomenal friends!
