“I wish you were the dandruff in my head, so I could carry you on my shoulders wherever I go,” quipped comedian Nemr Abou Nassar to an audience reeling with laughter.

In the last post, I spoke about how I fell back in love with fashion and everything it stands for (in case you missed it, click here). I also touched on how accessorizing can really change the look and take it to a whole new level. I’d always heard about how accessorizing can be game-changing but, I always thought it was something reserved for the creative minded among us. Here, I talk about how I realized that there was more to accessorizing than the standard black Gucci Double G belt!
One day in Zara, I grabbed a pair of statement gold earrings to see how they would look on an outfit I had just paired whilst in stores. And just like that, it hit me! I realized how accessorizing can add a personal touch to your look. There are so many ways to make your outfit stand out, from belts to necklaces and everything in ......read more

Dubai, UAE, November 11, 2018: Between 1940 and 1945, OMEGA delivered more than 110,000 timepieces to the Royal Air Force and other branches of the military. The watches were highly valued by British airmen and sailors for their water resistance and reliability.
At the end of the war, OMEGA responded to the demand for a timepiece with the same robust technology but more aesthetically suited to civilian life. The result was the Seamaster line, OMEGA's first family of watches: beautifully-designed timepieces, given even greater water-resistance than their military counterparts by OMEGA's novel use of the O-ring gasket technology.

Dubai, UAE, October 08, 2018: The main reason hyaluronic acid has gained so much attention in skincare over the years is its amazing ability to deliver lasting moisture to the skin. One of the main challenges for our skin, at any age, is dryness. Dry skin can look dull, lack radiance and elasticity, making lines and wrinkles look more pronounced. So, while I’m not promising this wonder ingredient will turn back the hands of time erasing every wrinkle (and who wants that we enjoyed earning them!) what I am saying it can do is hydrate. Hydrated skin has more volume and looks radiant ......read more

Dubai, UAE, October 07, 2018: For women, the skin around the eyes and that on the lips which is naturally darker against the facial skin tone create an immensely beautiful contrast, making them look very attractive. Highlighting these areas enhances facial features even more, which is why mascaras, eye shadows and eyeliners have become make-up staples.
Make-up is fun and feminine, but it also clogs the pores of the skin, making it difficult for them to breathe, leading to skin irritation, breakouts and fine lines in the long run. The more we touch our skin and apply make-up, ......read more
