I’ve been drooling over the very photogenic creations of newly opened Status Kitchen for over a month, and finally made time for a visit a couple of weeks ago.

Located behind a community mall that goes under the name Abaya Mall in the Mirdiff district of Dubai, the prim and proper red brick walling on its exteriors promise an extravagant high-tea of sorts. When we got there, we even spotted an astute, new model black and chrome Merc parked outside. So astute, so statuesque

I am a huge advocate for natural beauty, and love whipping up organic products in my very own kitchen. Lately I’ve been absolutely obsessed with coal… activated charcoal to be precise! Charcoal and beauty might seem to be the unlikeliest of BFF’s, but the possibilities of pairing the two are absolutely endless.
