Travelling someplace new and looking for a comfortable stay
that doesn’t cost your entire travel budget? Or perhaps you’re on the lookout
for a weekend getaway within the UAE itself?
Take the hassle out of bookings (and the travel agent’s
commissions!) by downloading the OYO app. Available both on the Apple and Android
Play Store, the OYO (or On Your Own) app is the world’s third largest
hospitality chain, and has already been in the UAE for a year now.
Last Friday we were invited to the Best Dressed Brunch at Great British Restaurant. Located in Duke’s on the Palm, one of Dubai’s newest five-star hotel properties that was inaugurated in March this year, the very synonyms ‘best dressed’ and ‘British’ had me stressing over what I was going to wear!
Friday brunches are usually laid-back and casual, and post work-week, I like to sleep in and keep my brunch look as simple as possible. Not so for this one! The Best Dressed Brunch gives you an excuse to pull out that sparkly number you’d usually reserve for a special night out. And the best part of all is that they even choose a ‘best dressed’ diner who walks away with a night’s stay at this much coveted property! So here I am, all glammed up in my Debenham’s number with bright red Mac Ruby Woo lips to boot!
My very first encounter with The BlowOut Bar was at the Namshi Spring/Summer launch event, and I have been raving about them ever since. Check out my Khaleesi-worthy braids and salon visit by clicking here and here.
Today I would like to introduce you to the very vivacious Lana Ghandour, the glamorous woman behind The BlowOut Bar concept. How does it differ from other salons? What are the key styles of the season, and what does a founder of one of Dubai’s most upcoming salons use on her own hair? Read on for more!
