Something for the weekend round seven.
I paid a visit to The Pavilion in Downtown Dubai today with BNBL. It’s an open, arty space that serves up showrooms of new Dubai developments with a side of cafe cool. We both ordered the grilled chicken salad (pictured above), cappuccinos and some desert. Although the food was average, the venue is very “instagram worthy” – as Laura would say, and deserves a visit even just for a quick coffee.
My credit card begrudgingly handed over some dosh to ASOS this week (but not very much thankfully) for these leopard print plimsolls. I have been stalking them for the longest time and finally decided to buy them. Will they make my feet look like boats? Or will I look really cool and edgy in them? Only time will tell…
I attended a YSL event this week and spent some time with Zahra, the funny and super stylish lady behind Lyla Loves Fashion. I don’t mention a lot of Dubai blogs on here, but Zahra’s is worth a visit for the super sharp photography alone. She mainly covers fashion but throws in a bit of beauty and lifestyle for good measure so make sure to check it out.
Nars arrived in Dubai today but then, it didn’t. The much-awaited launch was supposed to be this morning in Sephora, Mall of the Emirates but there was a technical delay (?) and so nothing happened. It’s (supposedly) available from tomorrow though and then the counter in Sephora, Dubai Mall will open a few days later, so keep your eyes peeled. All I want is Nars Sheer Glow Foundation and Nars Creamy Concealer. That’s not too much, right?
I went to see Gone Girl last night and I have to admit – it left me reeling. It was bloody brilliant! Tense, thrilling and darkly funny in parts, I’m still thinking about it today and wondering halfheartedly whether reading the book now is a good idea? Have any of you read the book? Will the movie have ruined it for me? Answers on a postcard 🙂
Makeup-wise, nothing much to report except I’m still loving Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Lipsticks and a recent addition, Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder. An actual god-send of a product, but more on that another time.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend! 🙂
