There’s been so much happening these last few weeks that it has been almost impossible for me to update the ‘My Week in Daintyness’ series! So here’s a compilation of ’em all. Before I get to that – I just want to give a shout out to my soul sistah, Sophia Schuhmann who is currently celebrating her birthday in Vietnam although I really wish she were here! Happy Birthdayy sugahhh. Love you loads! <3
^^You have to pick up a copy of the upcoming a&e issue (November/December) to read this review! 😛 For now, I can only tell you that it is one of the most romantic restaurants in the city!
^^As the assistant editor for the magazine, I get invited to loads of fun events. This was one of them. It included painting the San Fran skyline, popping paint balloons with darts (which I failed miserably at) and of course manicures!
^^This was another fun event! I was given a key at the entrance to find my fragrance which was Noelle! There were also make-over tables, beauticians and gorgeous models!
^^A beautiful event where the guests were entertained by a lovely dance performed by a famous ballerina (Damn. I can’t recall her almost arduous French name.Sowwie!) At first, I wasn’t a fan of the fragrance and I thought it wouldn’t be long-lasting but to my surprise, it indeed was!
While in the store, I couldn’t help but notice this gorgeous embellished tutu! It makes me wish I was a dancer. Beautiful, isn’t it?
^^Here’s what I walked away with from the event. (At a&e, we get pampered good!) Cute ballerina flats, a rose, the fragrance in 80ml, a miniature of the fragrance as well as a hair mist! I’ve been wanting to get my hands on hair fragrances for so long now. I am so glad that I got one eventually. Does anyone know where I can find more hair fragrances? There are a lot of brands that produce them but I can’t seem to find them here. Maybe I am looking in all the wrong places?
^^How many of you guys showed up at this great event? It was incredible. I learned a lot and I will be reviewing the St. Tropez Spray Tan very soon. See that machine in the picture? That’s where I’ll be in my bikini in a week’s time! I am super excited to share the review with you! *fingers crossed* there are no mishaps though! Remember Kramer from that one Seinfeld episode? Eeek!
Anyway, here’s what I walked away with –
^^What do you think of my new shoe steals? I love, love love them! I haven’t worn the tan heels out yet but they are super comfortable. The straps on the black wedges are sorta loose on me. Sadly, they cannot be adjusted which I really hate. It gave me a whole lot of toe blisters when I wore them last Thursday but I am hoping my feet get used to them to a point where they get so numb so that I can wear them ’cause they look so good!
^^One of the highlights of my Thursday! Mmm.Mmm.Mmmmmm. I cannot say more!
^^To celebrate my bestie, Cassie’s birthday, we went to Patiala Restaurant’s Lounge in Souk Al Bahar where we had some amazing signature cocktails and chilli raisins! Here’s the drink I had –
^^White rum infused with cinnamon, lemon, mint, mango & passion fruit puree, masala powder, ginger ale. They have some other amazing drinks like Spiked Chai which is Hibiscus tea with dark rum and Red Bull which is my boyfriend’s fave!
^^I haven’t been to the beach in AGES! I was actually very terrified of going and kept thinking that the sun would scorch me so bad but it was good fun! Thank you Emma! 😛 Before the beach, we had a fun breakfast at Ihop. In the evening, we went to see Malavita at the movies which was a pretty fun film to watch!
^^Another weekend highlight was my visit to TRIBES, Mall of the Emirates where I filled my tummy with some delicious food! Full details and review to be posted soon! It’s one you don’t want to miss – trust me!
