Five Things Friday: New perfume, breakfast & beauty, and more!

February 21, 2014

1) This week was packed with events, and one of them involved a yummy breakfast at Meydan Beach Club accompanied by manicures, make overs and free reign to try all of Sephora’s exciting new products. It was heaven!

2) Completely random, but just glancing at Mara Jade can put a smile on my face. This cat is just too adorable, we think she might be a scottish fold calico, she certainly has the cute factor going on for her.

3) Turkish brand Koton showed off their SS 14 collection at the super trendy Story Rooftop Lounge. You can get a sneak peek on my instagram. There’s definitely something for everyone- nautical themes, monochromes, tribal prints and sporty meets glam.  I’m loving my sparkly tribal clutch from the new collection!

4) Ah, I love this perfume! ‘BOSS Nuit’ doesn’t just smell lovely when you spray it on, it settles really well too and lasts forever. The man gifted this to me and trust me, he knows his perfumes.

5) I think e.l.f’s Makeup Mist & Set is actually a pretty good dupe for Urban Decay’s setting spray. It gives a very natural, dewey finish without looking greasy and my make up definitely lasted longer. I don’t know how well its lasting power would work in Dubai’s summer but if you have dry skin or just want the dewey look, it’s an awesome product. And it’s it’s just 3$! Fyi, If you don’t have a Shop n Shop account ( e.l.f only deliver to the US and Canada), I got mine from Amazon.

Yay me for sticking to these Five Things Friday posts! I’m proud of myself for always being on schedule with them. I hope you’re enjoying them as much I enjoy creating them x



  • I really adore posts like these, so I’m glad you’re sticking to them! Oh how I wish we had Sephora here, then again, my bank balance is probably thankful it’s not!
