Happy Women’s Day to all you phenomenal women out there! To celebrate, I thought I’d do a post on one of my all-time favorite fashion icons, Iris Apfel.
Whoever said eccentric dressing and growing old should never mix has obviously not heard of Iris Apfel. She has broken all the conventional molds of fashion and beauty, a true inspiration for every woman out there.
If you’re following me on Instagram, you might recall that a certain grey box in the mail got me very excited this week. It was my very first set of goodies from Judith Hobby Clothing!
Packages in the mail always get me excited!
What do Dubaiites do on an idle weekend? Mall-hop ofcourse! Nothing more gratifying than a bit of retail therapy and window browsing.
A couple of Thursdays ago, my family and I found ourselves in Mirdiff City Centre. After an epic shopping spree, we had to do justice to our growling stomachs and decided to do Italian at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.
Absolute Barbecues has been on my ‘must-try’ foodie list for a long time now. I’ve heard rave reviews. Zomato has given this newbie 4.5 stars out of 5.
I had to find out what all the fuss was about firsthand.
Meet the very enterprising Mouna Abbassy, the founder and creative head of Izil, a brand new beauty range from Morocco.
In a cut-throat marketplace where brands come and go, Izil stands out from the crowd and has created a special niche for itself by offering high-quality organic beauty products that are based on authentic, age-old Moroccan beauty traditions.
There’s a little Iranian stall in my neighborhood, and I love browsing through their endless varieties of dried fruit and nuts, and exotic Persian herbs.
The elderly gentleman who sits at the stall barely speaks a few words of English, but with broken dialect and animated gestures, he proudly presents the jewels of his heritage to anyone vaguely interested.
The other day, I stopped by to pick up my weekly dose of zereshk, and found myself fiddling with a small bag of dried petals. They were in the prettiest shades of indigo, violet and purple.
Happy New Year! Today marks the first day of the Chinese New Year, and 2015 marks the year of the goat.
