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.

Versatile, compact enough for the smallest of makeup bags, eco-friendly. Just a few of the entire list of reasons I love NudeStix.

With NudeStix, the ‘no makeup makeup’ look is child’s play. I can even do it by the pool! Click on my Instagram post below to see for yourself:

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
