Are Selfies fun or narcissistic? Arguably the backbone of social media as we know it, selfies are no passing phase and here to stay. Despite its popularity, selfies also get a whole load of slack. 

I’ve always been a huge fan of Barcelona-born fashion brand Desigual. Their offbeat prints and colour clashes always appealed to the boho in me. However, this very notion of ‘loud’, non-confirmative mix of prints makes many turn away from the brand.

Come Spring Summer 2017, the brand new collection at Desigual has gone through a major transformation. Sure the crazy cool clash of colors stays true to the brand DNA, but the range now includes a wider range of options for those seeking a more sober wardrobe palette.

Casual day out in a super comfy pair of boyfriend-fit jeans and blouse? I bet this is not what you envisage… Dressed in blue, dressed in Desigual. Always so beautifully different!

This week I was invited for an art class by none other than Atlantis, The Palm Dubai. Intrigued, I accepted despite having yet another crazy week at work. It was on a Monday night, and I was almost going to skip it, but so glad I didn’t! Who would have thought an artist’s easel and canvas can be so therapeutic?

Yet this is not your ordinary art class! Located in The Lost Chambers Aquarium of Atlantis The Palm, I am not exaggerating when I say this was an ‘out of the world’ experience.

Tucked away in a very scenic corner of Rixos The Palm (on The Palm Jumeirah) is a fascinating new foodie getaway; El Chiringuito. Quintessentially designed to look like a dreamy Mexican enclave, complete with bougainvillea-draped corners and breath-taking views of the vividly blue Mediterranean sea, this brand new addition to the Dubai foodie scene is already being listed as one of the most happening hot-spots of the city.

Last weekend, we were invited to try out their La Familia brunch, and absolutely fell in love with the chilled out vibes of the place.

The La Familia brunch runs from 12 noon to 4 pm every weekend, with packages ranging from AED 395 to 695, inclusive of champagne. But let me take you through the gastronomic Mediterranean-style menu we were served… wholesome, beautifully plated, and lip-smackingly delicious! 

The month of love is upon us, and the media is sure to inundate you with a whole lot of fluff, pink hearts and drool-worthy diamonds. Being a full-time marketeer myself, I too fall into this cliche drill, but this time round I thought of creating a lineup of gifting ideas that take the meaning of ‘love’ beyond the cliche fluff and romance.

There is a great deal of love that needs to go around in the world today, and what better way to show it than spend your money on brands that go the extra mile to give back to the community? From beauty, fashion and beyond, there are so many great options to consider.

I am an all-out lipstick junkie, and can be pretty experimental with my choices. To me, a bright pout screams confidence, and I am as comfortable sporting a nude as I am a perky purple, and even a goth-inspired black.

However, even if you shy away from color, chances are you own a red lipstick (or two… or ten!). One of my favorite brands for lipsticks is MAC Cosmetics, especially their matte range. Their color range is wide and varied, and many of their shades have become iconic the world over. For reds, the MAC Ruby Woo and Russian Red are shades that are (literally) on every girl’s lips, but one that is not as talked of is the MAC Chili.
