Beauty Night at Vivaldi by Alfredo Russo Sheraton Dubai Creek

No comments:
It's a pity that I'm not able to attend many wonderful events lately. Not that I don't want to, but because I can't.


there are some fabulous events that fit perfectly with my schedule like the one I attended just recently at Sheraton Dubai Creek.

It was an event I wouldn't want to miss.

I could not help but to feel festive as I enter Sheraton Dubai Creek.

Up until I reached the entrance of Vivaldi by Alfredo Russo, fully dressed up in pink baloons and silver ornaments. Suddenly my mood shifted, to more of a ladies night party mood.

The event is nothing if not the fanciest, after all...

it's the sixth and grandest edition of #SheratonDXBeautyNight hosted by Vivaldi by Alfredo Russo Restaurant and Lounge.

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics at City Walk Dubai

No comments:

Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics flagship store at City Walk Dubai opens its doors last week where I had the chance to have a sneak peek of the winter collection and the first ever Hair Lab and Gorilla Perfume Lounge the day before they opened it to the public.

I love how colorful it was inside the store. I was like seeing a house in Hansel and Gretel story sans the old woman witch, full of candies luring me to enter. However inedible and instead of popping them into your mouth, you smooth it to yourself or dive into it in the bathtub.

These bath bombs are so cool and come in a rainbow of colors. They all look so pretty and I want them all.

It is the same day that they launched their winter collection so I bought a couple of their best sellers - Father Christmas and Northern Lights for us to try.

To start with the bubble bars, I opted for the milky bath. My main concern was my eldest sensitive skin but I the staff assured me that all of their products are plant based.

The milk bath is the one that looks like a milk bottle. It is made with moisturizing cocoa butter, soy milk and olive oil for supremely soft skin, orange oil to soothe the mind and let all troubles float away. I love the sound of that.

We are still to try these bath bombs and bubble bars, follow my IG stories for those soon.

All products were half the price on that day so I fill my wooden basket of the ones I wanted to try.

I also bought Boom toothy tabs. It leaves my teeth super clean and whiter, my mouth so fresh.

And for my daughter's eczema-prone skin, I got her the Dream Cream. It is highly recommended for eczema sufferers. I even tried it to myself and wow, it makes wonder to my semi-dry skin.

It is made from oat milk, lavender, chamomile, olive oil and cocoa butter

Halloween collection is also in store.

I went there straight from work but the event was from 2 pm to 7:30 pm. Reached there at around 7 pm so there was no chance to try the hair treatments at the Hair Lab. The other guests, of course, were treated to a complimentary hair treatment and got the chance to immerse and indulge the senses at the Gorilla Perfume Lounge.

More soap bars, all smelling heavenly

If you shop early for Christmas pressies, here's a very good idea and wrapping is not required.

Look at those nifty gift boxes.

Simply Grab. Pay. Gift.

I left the Lush Cosmetics flagship store in high spirit, even made few new friends while sneak peeking. Thank you Lush Cosmetics for the gift, I am surely going to enjoy all that's inside.

My hair needed some tlc and I used VANIDAY to book an appointment with Sky Star Salon in Al Rigga Road for cellophane color. Sky - the salon owner did my hair before and I was happy with my curls. 

I don't have Sky Star Salons telephone number though yet I picked up my phone, tap my VANIDAY app and booked away. All you need to do is 1. Discover. 2. Book. 3. Enjoy. How easy is that? 

I know, it's easier with pictures so I am sharing these screen shots with you for you to see how I booked with Sky Star using VANIDAY.

The White Room

No comments:
I've recently discovered one of the best salons in Dubai Marina area, The White Room Beauty and Spa Lounge. It's now on top of my list when I want some highly efficient, affordable and luxurious pampering.

My appointment was at 7 pm on a Thursday but due to work load, I needed to call them to adjust it at a later time which they accommodated even with a very tight and busy schedule.

When I arrive, the staff greeted me with a smile and offered some refreshments. The lady who assisted me showed me a large collection of nail polish to choose from.

I picked Esse leading lady and it suites my hands perfectly.

We entered a stunning white room, it was immaculate. I don't have a photo of it though, it felt awkward to take photos with other ladies having their hands and feet done and with just a towel wrap around the waist

The pedicure started with a warm foot soak, scrub and foot and leg massage, it felt heavenly. The same for the hands follow suit while the masseuse gave me the most relaxing 30 minutes head, neck and shoulder massage with oil. It was so relaxing I never wanted it to end.

These three amazing ladies handled me with care. We were done in an hour and a half I guess, I felt so relaxed I didn't notice the time.

Manicure and Pedicure for 30 minutes cost 75 dirhams base (there are other service combinations to chose from depending on your budget) while the 30 minutes head, neck and shoulder massage is 55 dirhams.

The White Room has many nails services, nail enhancements, hands and feet treatment, massage treatments, hair styling, wax treatment, eye care, facial and make up. It is a one stop shop beauty haven for ladies, mommies, residents, tourists and business travelers alike.

Glambox's All Natural Faceshop Beauty Kit

No comments:
I already like Faceshop but what hooked me into its first Glambox kit is because it's all natural.

The use of aloe, sunflower, white seed, pomegranate and mixed berries in Faceshop's products sounds very promising and indeed it did not disappoint.

Blog and Breathe Bloggers Meet

No comments:
Time for a beauty post.

I know it's a rare thing for me to do but I guess girls will always be girls. A midweek pampering wouldn't hurt anyway plus it's October, the pink month is all about caring for one self especially for us ladies.

Pretty colors #nailart #beautyblogging #tiisganda #myyellowbells

Last night's bloggers meet up was at the cozy Fellaa Beauty Care and Spa in Ansar Gallery in Karama. The place is owned by the Indian film actress Nisha Joseph. We also met the manager Gauri as well as the organizer herself, the bubbly Chhaya of Your Bubbly Butterfly, a full time beauty blogger herself.
