Beauty – Updated Top Five Favorites

Lifestyle

Hey beauty addicts! Updated Top 5 current beauty, skin & hair favorites onto my story and beauty highlights..
______________________________
I make no pretenses that I’m some beauty guru.
But after a baby and months of seeing pictures of myself and thinking, “My skin does not look 21 anymore,” I decided I was ready to take my beauty and makeup routine a little more seriously. I don’t like wearing a lot of makeup and I really don’t want it to take up very much of my time, but after months of experimenting with some different products and slowly getting the hang of how to actually wear makeup like a grown-up, here are the five products that make me happy every single morning & evening.

There are so many beauty products out there and it’s fun to experiment. I always love hearing what people are using and what product(s) they just can’t live without. Don’t forget, I want to hear from you too, so make sure to SHARE yours in the comment section below!

Saint Patrick’s Day – BSPCA Annual Dog Walk

Events & Experiences

Saint Patrick’s Day just got a whole lot better with some wonderful people and super cute pooches.

Be a best friend. Volunteer.
Every year millions of homeless dogs await their fate behind the chain-link walls of a shelter. Shelter dogs wait days, weeks, or even years for a home…and every day they wait for a walk.
Animal shelters are everywhere in every size, kill versus no-kill, privately owned or government run, and the differences go on and on. No two animal shelters are alike, but there is one thing that remains the same. Animal shelters are a second chance for our homeless pets.
Visit your local animal shelter to learn about volunteer opportunities.

It’s impossible to pick favorites when it comes to dogs. When it comes to sheer adorableness; however, these pooches might just rise above the rest.. BSPCA thanks for letting me be a part of this. Loved capturing the day.

Lots of love xxxxx

All new at The Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel, Residence & Spa

Décor, Events & Experiences, Hotel, Travel and Food

With all new decor and a new sense of comfort, The Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel, Residence & Spa in Bahrain has had an exciting makeover to ensure your stay is an even more pleasurable experience. All the living spaces have been revisited to blend function and design, to improve your feeling of wellbeing. Well, my affection for The Diplomat Radisson Blu Hotel, Residence & Spa dates back to 2017 when I had one of DD’s first milestones celebration at the hotel! Fast forward one year, I’m back and excited to witness the transformation that has taken place in 2018.

Bigger and brighter, discreetly exuding sensuality, everything (post-renovation) lived up to its reputation. While the colours are brighter, fresher and more dynamic, the lighting is very natural, creating a real feeling of wellness. Everything has been designed to make you feel at ease.

Teal (color) is given pride of place in the rooms to provide warmth and comfort.

In addition to the rooms, lobby space and renovated reception area with bright new furnishings, the hotel refurbishments now include a complete overhaul of dining at the newly launched and stylized “Royal Café”. A great place for both formal and informal meetings, the Café provides a welcoming atmosphere for guests. I was pleased with the nice selection of teas, decadents and light dishes.

Anticipating our need for extra scones and tea refills before we even knew we wanted them. Great service!

“Decadent” is the word which best describes “my pick of the day”.

Tasty Treats & Delectable Dishes. Extremely attractive!

The decor is very chic and the textural furniture add glam sheen and shine to the place. The service was so good that I went home and texted the Team to thank them. I love nothing more than being surprised by anticipated good service being nothing short of exceptional. This is a place for a get-together, partying, a romantic date or someone who happens to be blogging their way through 5* hotels…

I want to go back!

Holi in Bahrain – Dipped in hues of Love and Color

Events & Experiences, Lifestyle, Travel and Food

Nobody apprehends the importance of celebrating festivals than the Indians settled abroad away from their country and cultural roots. I had it marked on my calendar since the beginning of February.

Celebrating Holi, (the Hindu festival of mischief, love, affection, and color) was on my list of goals for the blog alongside shifting apartment and raising a 14-month-old. We got to welcome spring (and diversity) with warm-loving arms, during this Holi in Bahrain on March 2nd 2018.

A day full of fun for all, was organised extremely well at Novotel Bahrain Al Dana Resort. Wolfpackeventsbh, IGMH – Indian Gulf Media House, KTK Events, Desi Nights Bahrain and Bollywood Glitz have done an excellent job of organising a wonderful, successful event this season. The vibrant lineup included live dhols to rain dance, best of mind-boggling DJs from all genres, 6 hours of non-stop music, unlimited organic colours, kids play area, live food counter,  and more. Food Attractions included: Indian BBQ, Pani Poori, Shawarma, Momos, Chaat, Cupcakes & many more.

A big crowd of citizens and residents of the Kingdom came together to celebrate one of India’s iconic festivals. Everyone seemed to love the spirit of fun and enjoyment and dived into the barrel of colors to play Holi.

Guests were given organic colored powder to toss around the beach to celebrate the season in style with food, cocktails and beats at this party.
