Chanel apres COCO!

Since I won't be seeing "coco avant chanel" anytime soon..I thought I would check out Lagerfeld Confidential. A documentary that was out in 2007 on the legendary designer com photographer com marketing genius! You get an inside look at his life.. his place, his rings, collars and ipods and ofcourse.. his iconic black shades.. "Je ne veux pas être une réalité dans la vie des autres" he says.."je veux être comme une apparition" (I don't want to be a reality in people's lives, i want to be an appearance)

@ the loo :P u gotta admit the guy has a sense of humor

his endless rings!

Delice opened in the Dubai Mall one month ago but had a fabulous grand opening yesterday morning. The place looks almost as yummy as their macaroons are, and they have the cutest assortments of everything sweet..

If, like me, you have a weakness for anything pistachio, then you should definitely get their pistachio drink.. I loved it!

Officially the freshest macaroons I had in Dubai to date.

The closest I will ever get to flying again

Dinner in the sky (my bday plan, that got canceled because of our vvvv crappy weather) is a 4 course meal served over 2 hours, 50 meters in the sky. If 2 hours is too long for ur taste, you can choose to "chill in the sky" instead for 30 mins and snack on tea sandwiches, scones and coffee.

Now in Dubai at JBR.

On turning 27

I love the number 27. Its my favourite number in the whole wide world :P So I'm hoping this year is going to be a good one inshalla xD

I sat here for some time, trying to think of what it is i would like to say in this post.. I usually have meaningful things to say on birthdays u see...

But all I came up with, is that I am clueless.. more so than ever. There are no answers, only more questions.. each day, every year.. life throws one big question after the other your way..

I think part of finding ones self has alot to do with being at peace with the fact that you don't necessarily need to have all the answers.. and with that knowledge comes strength, growth and maturity...

27 years have taught me that.

On another note, Jackie O is a Taurean too.. so there u go xD

- to meaningful experiences xx

P.s to all the fabulous girls who emailed, txtd and called me last night.. I love you all xx

Eye spy..

I used to swear by Chanel's gentle biphase eye makeup remover, I have very sensitive eyes and need my eye makeup remover to get rid off all the black kohl or mascara remnants, but not irritate my eyes or lashes.

A few days ago I stumbled over No.7 cleanse and care eye makeup remover at Boots which has a similar double action liquid and works magically.

A very worthy credit friendly opponent. Try it out!

Earth Day 2009

Today marks Earth Day, our chance to take action and turn around our bad habits by being more aware of what "going green" stands for and contributing to our environment. You can all be part of it, in your own ways.. Just take it one step at a time..

Simply put:

1. Reduce consumption and waste
2. Reuse plastic bags or boxes
3. Recycle !

Let's take it from here..

More than just a hot cup of cocoa!

Mastro cafe is a new coffee shop which opened in the Dubai Healthcare City a few months ago. I used to go there and study because they have a glass roof and the lighting is just perfect, and they serve italian coffee :)

A few days ago, they put up a sign with all the different cups of hot chocolate served there.. and the variety is endless! from traditional dark chocolate, to hazelnut and bananas.. to caramel and white chocolate.. how can one resist?

I tried the hazelnut cocoa and thought it was too sweet for my taste, but delightful none the less :)

Surviving a Breakeup?

1. Get a good friend on the phone

2. Indulge in Retail Therapy

3. Look at life through rose tinted glasses

And always remember that you shouldn't worry about the people in your past; there's a reason they didn't make it to your future.

- to strong, independent and self sufficient women everywhere xx

pics from Refinery29

Reasons I should be in Paris right now:

1. The Coco Avant Chanel movie (premiers on the 22nd)

2. The laduree-disney macaroons (throughout may)

3. I miss it, i really really do. (always!)

So if you're there, ur very very lucky.. Don't miss out on the movie or the macaroons!

Still no word on if the movie will hit theaters here, or when.

Where do you want to be right now?

- to B, enjoy ur trip ;) xx

Again, not a fan.

A caffe, a restaurant and a foodshop founded in 1991 by Antonio and Priscilla Carluccio that's authentically Italian, beautiful and deliciously fresh. They claim to have explored the length and breadth of Italy to find the best ingredients from every region to make delicious products in traditional ways, with care.

The place overlooks the amazing fountains in Burj Dubai which no words can do justice! have a look:

and there's music too..

Breathtaking i tell you.

From Napoli to Dubai

The new Italian joint Fratelli La Bufala (located in Arabian Plaza) is based on traditional Neapolitan farmland cuisine with a specialty in buffalo cheeses and meats. They have 20 branches all over the world, all of which are named on the tables (as shown above :P) I tried the risotto (as part of our quest to find the perfect risotto in Dubai) and it did not disappoint. The waiters greeted us with a Bona Sera and felt comfortable changing the order into a risotto milanese (which was not on the menu). The coffee was good too.

We did not try the pizza which is supposed to "mirror the rich tradition of Neapolitan pizza that dates back to the 17th century". Maybe next time :)

Yet another spy movie that was in theaters for some time now, we decided to check it out cuz nothing else looked better.

I give it a 7.

Why I liked it: the Julia Roberts factor, the chemistry between both spies and the fact that u really had to focus in order to get it lol.

Why its not an 8: there's a lot going on, scenes from the past jump into the present in a confusing manner. One of the girls kept asking "so now what's going on?" Its not something u want during a movie.

Liked the ending though.

Favorite quote:

"At least we have each other" him

"It really is this bad, isn't it?" her
