What is better then finding a pair of Jeffery Campbell gold gladiators? Finding them on sale at a factory outlet for a quarter of the price. Mix the look with 5 Euro sunnies and cute striped dress from the flea markets of Milano and finish the look with a crisp white oversized waist coat from Fashlink and Voila you have a perfect street style assemble for less then 100 Euro!!!! Pictures courtesy of BF and of course Nikon!

After a very pleasant plane ride (Emirates is the best hands down) I arrived in the fashion capital of Milano and my first thought….. Holy Hell is it hot!!!
The history, the culture the punks, the hipsters, the old women that are so classy, but first my friends… An outfit post!
When in doubt wear a maxi dress and causal tennis shoes (I am obsessed with Bensimon’s – Level shoes district peeps) with far too much gold ghetto jewellery and a pastel cross bag! *Info on where to buy these high street bargains below). Also I’m using a Nikon for all my pics – This camera makes anyone look good (thanks to the high def feature)!
Ghetto Gold Jewellery is from my favourite online store Fashlink – Next day delivery and cash on delivery – Shopping while working is a passion of mine!
Dress – Fashlink – No surprises there!
shoes – Bensimon I walked for 3 hours 16,000 steps and not once did I complain about my feet! Who needs heels?!
Cross shoulder bag – Dream Walk Dubai stunning leathers and the cutest shoes!!!
Let’s be honest I don’t work out or go to the gym, my version of cardio is getting up from the couch to the fridge to see if anything new has arrived since the last 2 minutes I checked the fridge.
But the new Adidas Stella Sport collection almost (key word almost) makes me want to parade in the gym while I spend 5 minutes on the elliptical machine.
The use of fun jungle patterns, bright neons and of course the ever sexy Stella/Adidas logo (without having to actually cough out the funds needed to buy Stella) makes this collection perfect for the young and the young at heart! Who knows I might even give yoga another chance!
Check out the Adidas Mena Instagram for all the updates on this soon to be sold out collection!
I hate feet. Let me just make that statement very clear, if I could cut my feet off and walk on stumps I would. So any new thing to make my tootsies look slightly more attractive I am in there like swimwear!
Well folks I think our summer feet prayers have been answered! Introducing; Tweezerman The Soul Mates Duel Sided Foot File.
This baby features two specialised tools for expert pedicure maintenance: a professional quality, safe-to-the-touch stainless steel micro-file and an equally high quality finishing file. The stainless steel micro-file quickly, easily and very gently removes calluses and rough dead skin, while the finishing file buffs the skin to soft, touchable smoothness.
And it’s pink!!! Hello TAKE MY MONEY!!!!
The pink Sole Mates Dual Sided Foot File are available in Harvey Nichols, Bloomingdales, AREEJ, Tavola, Salam Studios, Boots Pharmacy and Zwilling J.A. Henckels Stores across the GCC for AED 115.
To celebrate the amazing feat that now GAY MARRIAGE is legal in the USA here is my form of solidarity!
With an illusive hashtag #findSALT I finally ate at Duabi’s worst kept secret, SALT the only place in Dubai that you can get a world class slider from 1950’s vintage food truck while enjoying Kite Beach.
As the summer draws closer and closer every minute (I still believe that during summer you can indeed cook an egg on your car hood) the creators behind SALT have created SALT Resort, think air con, Ibiza vibes, and indoor area and of course world class burgers and introducing fresh juices and TO DIE shakes and ice-cream.
Fire Fries… You’re welcome stomach!
I am ashamed to admit I had 3 of these *Forget about beach body ready*
Signature Lotus shake… Made with crumbled Lotus cookies and caramel…
This summer don’t hibernate indoors or at the mall – Head to SALT eat your body weight in burgers, fresh juices and shakes, then swim it off!!
SALT is also open until 4am during Ramadan… Early morning cravings anybody??
#findSALT on Kite Beach (next to Surf Shop) and for more info check them out HERE

When I go to events or FAS-UN shows I always get asked, “Where did you get that bag?” Or “Where did you get that hat?” Usually it is the same answer, a little high street shop called Aldo. Every month there is something new that takes my eye, where one would think it was from a more expensive shop *Cough S*uce* when in fact it cost 250 AED. Here are some of my top picks of “Must Have Bags” to instagram / make other well jell of you this summer from Aldo (and they won’t break the bank)
Bonjour… Even if you aren’t traveling to the city of love this summer, you can still take a little bit of Paris with you (even if it is just to Mall Of The Emirates)
Always a fan favourite and it will get people that have never met you telling you “This bag is amez!” Who wouldn’t want a soda bag??
Nothing cuter then a coin purse.. That is unless it is in the shape of an ice-cream with sprinkles on it!!! Perfect to take to a festival (where all you need is change and a phone)
Mango flavour coin purse anyone?
If you are like me, you read glossy fashion magazines and see those skinny, perfect
bitches models who are photoshopped within an inch of their life and think “Why Can’t I look half as good as that?” Well until someone invents real time photoshop (until then we will have to make do with Instagram filters) my one go to product which I use when filming or on shoots is… Sally Hansen Air Brush Legs…
It’s like magical foundation for your legs, it covers every unsightly scars, pasty legs, freckles and makes them look almost perfect! It comes in an aerosol can, and you will need your girlfriends help to spray the back of your legs (don’t be that girl that forgets about the back of her legs). Once you spray it on slightly blend with your hands and you are good to go! Now available at Wojooh AED 62 (one can’t put a price on perfection).
*Secret Tip – To stop it from running down your legs due to heat, seal your legs in hair spray before heading out – It’s an old 1950’s Hollywood trick, it locks the product in*
