Julia Roberts for Lancome’s La Vie Est Belle

Can someone explain to me how Julia Roberts looks THIS incredible at her age and after having kids?! She looks absolutely radiant in the new commercial for Lancome’s latest fragrance, La Vie Est Belle. I mean just take a look at the commercial for yourself.

See what I mean? If spraying La Vie Est Belle gets those kind of results, I’m off to Sephora in the morning to buy myself a bottle or 6! Wow!

My Advertising Debut with Richy’s!!

Being asked by the amazing girls at Purple PR to star in my own mini-commercial for Richy’s Dubai was one of the highlights of my year so far.

Richy’s is one food place that I will happily admit to having on my speed-dial list. Located in Jumeirah Lake Towers (HDS Tower to be precise), Richy’s offers more than just your average salad – it offers a salad experience. I am a self-confessed Richy’s addict as I honestly order from them at least 3 times a week and each time it gets better and better!

I won’t bore you more with any chatter, but let you watch my advertising debut where I get to play the diva. I promise I’m really not so high maintenance in real-life!

Music Mondays: Rihanna

It’s the song most frequently played on my iPod this week. Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been?” is the song that gets me off my butt dancing in a club every single week and the accompanying video for the song is one of RiRi’s most energetic and theatrical to date!

Fashion Overdose with Maison Rana and B.Beautiful

It’s funny when people start to question what it is I do. Am I a blogger? Am I an event planner? Am I a writer? Am I a PR consultant? Truth be told I am all of the above and much more. No two days in my life are ever the same and that’s what keeps me motivated. One day I maybe writing a press release for one client and the next organising a fashion show for another. It’s this variety that I love!

Carine Roitfeld “The Client”

Take a look at Carine Roitfeld as you’ve never seen her before. She is one of the most famous fashion editors in the world, but she switched places as a Couture Client for W Magazine. This is a must see!

Who else can get away with telling Karl Lagerfeld that his models are a bit fat!? Lol

The Walk of Shame

This clever little video courtesy of Harvey Nichols has me giggling like a school girl, because how many times have us girls been caught doing the walk of shame? I think the most cringe-worthy encounter I had doing it this earlier this year was after a decadent night at Tramp with the girls. We left the club to go to a friends house to have breakfast. When we later returned to get our cars, we had to walk across the route of a charity marathon! Yes a bloody marathon! The entire route was lined with cheery supporters and camera crews, so the looks we got that morning were epic as you can only imagine. And no. Dolce doesn’t look great at 10.30 on a Sunday morning!

Harvey Nichols advises you to avoid the “Walk of Shame” this holiday season. I agree, it is not sexy at all!

Share your #walkofshame stories here and with me on Twitter. Tis the season to be jolly after all :)

A Romance Courtesy of Dior

Get ready to fall in love with not only Dior’s exquisite Cruise collection for 2012, but with the small Italian fishing village of Portofino – the backdrop to photographer Ellen Von Unworth’s beautiful short film capturing the fashion house’s stunning collection.

Described as a cocktail of bold block colours, soft seductive silhouettes and effortless elegance, this is one collection to look forward to.

Beyoncé for Harper’s Bazaar

She may be due to give birth in February, but that won’t slow the Queen of Pop, Beyoncé down. She covers both the subscriber’s and newsstand issues of the US edition of Harper’s Bazaar looking positively glowing. How stunning is that Reed Krakoff dress?  Continue reading

Video: Dior Shoes Fall 2011


According to Christian Dior, “You can never take too much care over the choice of your shoes. Too many women think that they are unimportant, but the real proof of an elegant woman is what is on her feet.” And who am I to argue with such a creative genius?! Continue reading

Chanel: Une Promenade


It was so incredibly beautiful that I visited 3 times. Chanel at Harrods was one of the most beautifully curated exhibits I have attended in years and after many weeks, I’ve finally got round to sharing these gorgeous pictures with you.  Continue reading
