Dubai’s Beauty Connection
The biggest day spa in the UAE has officially arrived! Dubai-based Beauty Connection Spa, who currently holds the Guinness World Record for the maximum number of nails ever varnished in one go, is set to break yet another memorable record this month by opening the biggest day spa in the Middle East set over an incredible 30,000 square feet. Most amazing of all, there are no appointments, no waiting and everything inside the spa will be serviced by one-of-a-kind vending machines, custom designed and made overseas to the highest technological specifications.
Beauty Connection Spa is designed like a London tube map, there are 6 specialized, color-coded departments providing in-depth professional treatments: Red nail Avenue (Red), Hair-a-cut (orange), facial room (green), hammam (Blue), i-Brows (purple), and the wax district (yellow).
I just checked it out myself to be absolutely blown away by the service- I’ve literally never been this happy about my brows – the staff is very efficient and in-the-know. I loved that there are these giant vending machines in every section for nail paint, disposable hair towels and combs (for blow drying) etc. which makes this salon so different, personalized and super hygienic.
There’s also a cute little indoor café to relax and unwind with a selection of their homemade iced tea and fruit punches. I feel like I could live here!
The new Beauty Connection is located on Sheikh Zayed Road, near First Gulf Bank metro stop, above Lime Tree Cafe.

Spanx And The City
Exclusive shapewear brand Spanx threw a sexy soiree for Dubai’s ladies at the popular rooftop bar 40 Kong. I’ve always been a fan of their tights – a winter staple in Dubai for me but now, Spanx is soon to launch a collection of jeans with their signature fabric and a unique twist.
I’ve had a peek and all I can say is that skinny jeans has never looked sexier. Infact, its Spanx-tastic, I say! More details soon.
Keeping Up With the Birkenstocks
Birks are definitely having a big fashion moment right now, after everyone from style icons such as the Olsen twins to Alexa Chung and from supermodel Heidi Klum to Gossip Girl Leighton Meester have been spotted wearing them in style. They’re everywhere and on everyone! As I made my way up to the swanky Atelier M in Dubai for the press launch of the new collection of Birkenstocks, I was pretty excited to see what’s in-store and who will be spotted in these next.
I loved the BIRKENSTOCK classics which are versatile sandal lightweight, flexible and washable, whilst still featuring the anatomically shaped footbed. The exact 1:1 copy of the classics, which was launched onto the market some one hundred years ago, is made in Germany with the same BIRKENSTOCK quality for which the brand is renowned.
The new Papillio Collection is feminine and trendy with models in platform soles and wedge heels!
All hail the new fashion statement: #ILoveMyBirks
