#FashionCrush: Armani Exchange Summer 2015 Collection

You know what? I never went into an Armani Exchange store. Nope. Never. I’m not really sure why. I guess I never thought their style was mine. Well, looking at the look book for their new Summer 2015 Collection, I must put both of my hands up and admit that I was completely wrong. Yeah, that happens too! Not too often so don’t get used it 😉

When I was sent news & images of the new collection I almost dismissed it and filed the email under ‘Other brands’. But then I got my uber cool, bright coral Armani Exchange tote bag (here) and I thought I’d give it a chance. To my surprise I discovered a really chic, effortless and clean style. I am now a complete convert and in fact cannot wait to go check out their store in Dubai Mall!

#FashionCrush: Out & about in London

As you may know if you follow me on Instagram, last week I was in London for a couple of days. I was attending the infamous SABRE Awards for which MEPRA (Middle East PR Association) – which I manage, was shortlisted. We lost (boohoo!) but I had an amazing amazing time! Had forgotten how much I loved this city…

Of course when I landed, I froze on the spot, it was 9C and I only had a little jacket so my first stop was Primark where I got a lovely coat and a few pieces of jewelry for a mere 30 Pounds. Bargain! Love Primarni (that’s what I used to call it back in the days)!

Here is the outfit:

On the 2nd day I attended the Sabre Gala Awards and wore my beloved gala dress from Debenhams! Felt so ‘Sicilian’!!

Forgot to mention this fab leather shoulder bag from up & coming British accessories label C.Nicol? The colour is amazing and you can wear it both as a shoulder bag or cross-body which is so convenient. Flats are from New Look.

2015-05-21 15.25.03I’ve of course brought a few bits of make-up and skincare which I’ll share in another post 😉

Sarah Chapman Spot Stickers

#BeautyCrush: Spot on treatment from Sarah Chapman

Not the most glamorous of topics I grant you BUT one that is mega important never the less. We all get that nasty little zit that just shows up when we least expect it (and always at the worst time e.i: before a date) right?! Well, when that happens, DO NOT PANIC!

Reach out for these magic little Spot Stickers from Sarah Chapman. They’ll have you looking spot-free in no time.

All you need to do is clean off the area, pat dry, apply the sticker directly onto the affected area, go to sleep. Remove the sticker in the morning and you’re good to go! Should be gone in 1 or 2 days max!

Oh and they come with a lovely little pouch to keep them safe and to carry them around discreetly ;).

I ordered these from my favourite beauty website (net-a-porter.com).

You’re welcome!
