I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 12. When I first turned four-eyed, I thought it was pretty cool and grownup. As I entered my teens I got all self-conscious thanks to the ‘geek’ stigma attached to being bespectacled. I constantly saw the world through stiff, dry contact lenses. Times have changed and goggles are more of a fashion statement now; my view on wearing glasses has had a 360 degree turn.

Girls with glasses are cool! Make the most of your frames, and read on for tips to take your style quotient behind goggles many notches up.

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.

Sherine John Tresind br manager mixologist cocktails molecular gastronomy dubai UAE indian fine dining (1)Anyone who has ever had the pleasure of dining at Tresind (located in Nassima Royal Hotel – Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai), will tell you about their magical cocktails. The drinks at Tresind oftentimes steal the spotlight from the restaurant’s phenomenal dishes. Clever concoctions featuring unexpected blends and the theatricals of molecular gastronomy thrown in, each drink is a unique masterpiece and presented with the exceptionally suave, jaw-dropping pizzazz we have come to expect a la Tresind.

Today I am introducing you to the man behind the magic; Tresind’s very own maestro mixologist, Beverage Manager Sherine John himself. A graduate in Hotel Management from India, John always had a special interest in cocktails and self-taught his way into Tresind cocktail fame.

With summer well and truly here, it’s time to reevaluate the makeup bag. The warmer months have always suited the minimalist look; think barely-there makeup¬†to enhance the features and recreate a¬†flawless, youthfully glowing complexion.

The lovely ladies at Dalila’s Kaftans sent me this stunning red beauty, and I just had to share some clicks with you!

A visit to The Oberoi always manages to transport me back to nostalgic holidays in India. Seeped in Indian hospitality and tradition, the turbaned concierge awaiting guests onto the red carpeted entrance can easily fool the mind into believing we are in India. The dominating Burj Khalifa in the backdrop brings me back to the present; this is The Oberoi set in the dazzle of Dubai.

Given the opulence of The Oberoi, it is pretty much apt that the BBC Good Food award for Best Indian Restaurant (under the ‘fine dining’ category) went to the hotel’s Indian restaurant, Ananta, this year.

My family and I had the pleasure of enjoying a fusion-style three-course dinner at Ananta last Friday.
