A mini update and yet another Bardot...


Ugh, I'm still not over it.

If you're a shop selling an off the shoulder top then you have a customer in me.

Lesson learned


Want to know something hideous? I was cleaning out the shoe section of my wardrobe this week - and by section I mean the space on the floor I have allocated for shoes - and stumbled across a brand new unworn pair that I got in the Reiss sale a month or so ago. I totally forgot that I owned them.  While I did a little dance of joy when I found them I also felt a little sick and wasteful.

I immediately set myself the task of wearing them and attempted to sport them today. I say attempted because in wearing them out to a meeting in Media City I realised that trying shoes on in store, under a cushioned lush carpeted surface, has to be retail's biggest lie. These are not comfortable and I stumbled around like a lame foal.

No wonder they were in the sale.

I need an intervention



An outfit reserved for spreadsheet production and going to the hairdressers to get a fringe I now regret.

Huda Beauty Liquid Matte lipstick in Medusa


You know you're a beauty addict when you are recovering from surgery in bed and wishing that you could be at Sephora, waiting in line for a new liquid lipstick release.

Although I couldn't be part of the action on launch day I was lucky enough to swoop in to the Dubai Mall store yesterday and find a colour in stock that was my cup of tea.

I feel like/know for certain that this is just the start of a Huda Beauty liquid matte collection.

Maintenance


I was reading Anna's recent post about Where to Spend and Where to Save when it comes to beauty treatments and I realised:

I do nothing myself.

Zip. Zero.

Its borderline embarrassing and very much a result of the fact that I am a) cackhanded in attempting to do these things myself and b) a Dubai resident that has been spoiled by the rich availability of cheap beauty salons.

Here then is the ugly truth laid bare - where I spend and where I save when it comes to treatments. Strap in for a high maintenance take on what I deem "essential".
