Something Juicy
Wearing | Juicy Couture Watch, Pedro bag and shoes, Gap top and Deborah Henning skirt

With the rise of modern technology, time can no longer just be checked on your wrist but also on your hand or lap through mobile phones and laptops. And for this reason, it seems as if a wrist watch is so old-fashioned and thus can be considered obsolete. However for someone like me who appreciates a great time piece, I have rounded up a few reasons why  it is definitely not a thing of the past.

First, watches are classy, glancing at your watch compared to checking your phone everytime can easily demonstrate that. Second, it’s functional, during the 19th century, watches were first used by the military to synchronize maneuvers during war, obviously it last longer than your phone battery, you can have two to three extra batts but why go to that extent if you can be both stylish and savvy. And speaking of style, I have a thing with a great time piece in gold, there’s something classy about it and it’s always impossible to resist similar to what I’m wearing on the photo from Juicy Couture.

Wearing | OTT cover up, Chloe sunnies, Straw bag from Conrad Maldives, swimsuit from Shopbop

Living in the UAE has made me learn to adjust both my beliefs and the clothes I wear, whilst there are many places that allow non-Muslims like me to wear bikini like hotels and around beach areas, it’s still necessary to respect and cover up whenever you can and this is to avoid making Muslim guest or tourist uncomfortable. This means a good and comfy cover up can come in handy. This OTT yellow cover up is both so boho and funky at the same time. Taking boho chic to another level.

The Maldives is the original ‘wish you were here’ postcard setting and I’m sure just like me, you saw pictures of the breath-taking beaches when you were a kid and dreamed about strolling along the endless white sands sipping from a coconut one day. Well that dream recently became a reality for me and suffice to say this place is absolute heaven on earth!  Whilst the Maldives is considered by some to be an ultra-luxurious honeymoon destination, I can honestly say that it’s a perfect piece of paradise that’s accessible to everyone from solo travellers, to water sports fanatics, so I wanted to take some time to write about what treasures you can expect to find.

Location: Vida Hotel Downtown Dubai

There’s nothing better than escaping to a new city for a weekend retreat, however the hassle of dealing with airport check-ins and the cost of flights can often mean it’s just not time or cost effective. Whilst most cities don’t offer much in the way of a solution to this, Dubai truly has it covered and has created an entire micro-economy from the ‘staycation’ market. Recognising that tourism in the UAE slows down somewhat over the summer months, Dubai has actively marketed the staycation concept to its resident expat community in order to drive up occupancy rates in the hotels during the quieter season. It’s safe to say this pioneering initiative has been a massive success, with residents choosing to spend their weekends with friends & family in the comfort of some of the world’s most luxurious resorts… and just a stone’s throw from home. The hotels themselves enjoy a boost in off-season occupancy, the consumer gets a discounted rate on their stay and Dubai itself benefits by keeping its residents spending in and around the city instead of flying off to other lands to spend their hard earned cash.

Wearing | bebe Jumpsuit, Chloe Sunnies, Charming Charlie Earrings, Sandals from Stuart Weitzman

I am always drawn to chic and contemporary fashion. And when Bebe approached me to partner up with the brand, I exclaimed ‘of course!’ The brand has given me the opportunity to check their latest pieces and to wear some of my favorites whilst on a day out. I chose this jumpsuit as it’s perfect for brunch or a casual coffee catch up with friends. It’s comfortable, classy and versatile.

Prior to working with the brand however, other than I’m already a fan, I knew little about the brand’s history so I took some time to learn about it. It’s important to me that whatever brand I promote is aligned with TSG’s core values. Going back to my ‘research’ I found some exciting things about the brand.

The first Bebe boutique  opened on 1976 in San Francisco and it was done by Bebe’s Chairman and Founder Manny Mashouf. At that time, recognizing a demographic that was neither junior nor bridge, manny created the first contemporary fashion brand. Over 35 years later, Bebe has established itself as one of the world’s top fashion retailers.

Wearing| Tory Burch Firenza Metallic sandals and watch, Whistles top and trousers, Chanel Boy Bag, Chloe sunglasses

If you raid my wardrobe and this is not known to many other than my two cats, you’ll know that I have an affinity towards silk dressing gowns, bed sheets and pretty much anything with silk material. If for some, what it takes to have a good night sleep is a cup of tea or instrumental music, for me, however, it is the soft velvety feeling of a silk clothing. And It’s always thrilling to find pieces that has the same amount of comfort yet perfect to be worn outdoors like this Whistles ensemble. And for those who loves the brand, it’s time to celebrate as the first Whistles store has opened its doors in City Walk Dubai.
