Birthday Celebrations for Mr Shef Codes!


One the first clients we signed to XO PR was my very dear friend, Shefan Lantra, aka Mr Shef Codes. Not only is Shef one of the most amazing friends that I have, but he is genuinely one of the most talented DJs in Dubai. This weekend we celebrated his birthday in style at 411 and it was BANANAS! Continue reading

Happy Birthday DJ Bliss

It’s not often that I give a birthday dedication on my blog, but this one is a must. DJ Bliss, aka Marwan Parham, is not only the hottest DJ in the Middle East, but one of the people who I am truly honoured to call a friend.

Ever since I met Marwan, life hasn’t been the same. There are some people who come into your life for a reason and Marwan is one of those rare people who I consider a blessing in disguise. Not only does he provide the soundtrack to my life, he makes me laugh until my sides hurt. And he’s not sore on the eyes too!

With a smile that can light up any room and talent that keeps me dancing until my feet hurt, DJ Bliss is THE man you want spinning at your party. I am honoured and privileged to call him a friend. Talent, swagger and class – what more do you want?! 🙂

#411 this weekend was a little bit extra special this week as we celebrated DJ Bliss’ birthday. To be honest, we didn’t want the night to end because we wanted our boy to have the best night ever. We hope you did Marwan! Thank you to The Real Flava and Mr Shef Codes for an amazing night!!

Happy Birthday B+. You are awesome and you make every day that little bit more special just by being in it.

Love you xoxo 🙂

Music Mondays: Calvin Harris feat. Ne-Yo

You all probably know that I am the poster child for #411 Saturdays at People by Crystal with The Real Flava. I haven’t missed a night since I moved back to Dubai permanently at the beginning of the year, just because it is my favourite night out of the week. The music is always on point, the crowd is always amazing and it’s a great chance to be reunited with the crew.

So imagine my surprise as I danced my socks off this weekend only to turn around and see Ne-Yo partying on our table. Yes! The one and only Ne-Yo! Having seen him at Atelier Live last month brought back some incredible memories and truly cemented what an amazing performer he is live.

Ne-Yo was in town for a private event, but thanks to DJ Neptune he stopped by People by Crystal for my friend DJ Say-G’s birthday. This incredible weekend long shindig involved yachts, clubs and a trip to Blue Marlin Ibiza-UAE that I will share with you all soon, but until then, this week’s dose of “Music Mondays” is dedicated to Ne-Yo and his latest song with Calvin Harris that I just cannot get out of my mind.

Music Mondays: 411 People by Crystal

It’s our weekly reunion – the one night of the week where my friends and I all get together to dance the night away on what was voted TimeOut Dubai’s “Best Urban Night”.

411 brought to you by The Real Flava at People by Crystal is the best night in the city with Dubai’s finest DJ Bliss and Mr Shef Codes bringing you the hottest beats to keep you dancing ’til you drop!

TimeOut Awards Celebrations

On Wednesday night I attended the TimeOut Dubai Awards held at the Armani Hotel in Burj Khalifa for the 2012 Nightlife Awards. It was a night of pure celebration as my favourite night of the week, #411 by The Real Flava, won Best Urban Night of the Year! Continue reading
