I had the pleasure to be invited to the flagship store of Rigby and Peller, the specialist lingerie fitters from London, at their store in Dubai Festival City Centre this week by the very knowledgeable and bubbly Retail Manager, Farah Hassam.

Love Your Nails (LYN) – healthy and beautiful nails!

Like the majority of ladies in Dubai, a set  of perfectly groomed hands and feet is de rigeur in my book, which normally involves a weekly trip to the salon to keep my digits in tip-top shape.

48 hours in Kuwait

Kuwait may not be the usual destination choice for a weekend break but when an opportunity arises to try an undiscovered locale I cannot resist saying no!

A Medley Feast at Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre

For over a billion Muslims around the world, iftar, meaning ‘breaking of the fast’, is the meal at the end of a long day’s fast during the Holy Month of Ramadan. Living in a predominantly Muslim country allows non-Muslim expats such as myself to experience this tradition in the hospitality of one’s home or alternatively […]

Soma Spa: Relaxation Haven

Nestled on the seventh floor of the Pullman Dubai City Centre lies Soma Spa, a haven of relaxation which beckoned me this sunny Friday afternoon in Dubai.

The Fashion Palais – My personalised shopping experience

For those of you unaccustomed to Souk Madinat Jumeirah’s sartorial delights, I must also confess I am somewhat of a stranger to them as well, having frequented the fabulous venue for cheeky post-work wine and cheeses at stalwart The Agency, as well as the odd function at super club Pacha or an elegant dinner at The […]

Welcome to Numbers are Sexy

Welcome to my new blog ‘Numbers are Sexy’. I have been toying with the idea of a site which merges my flair for figures with my passion for fashion, along with some anecdotes from fitness thrown in along the way.
