#DubaiSnowFall at Dubai Ice Rink

Hey Everyone!

Today, I’ll be writing about something my favorite, and how I enjoyed my time. Dubai Snow Fall which is happening at the Dubai Ice Rink. Something special about it is the amazing snow-fall under sun.. Woah! Would you ever imagine having snow under sun? Well, yes it’s true! You can skate under the snow, thanks to the amazing Ice Rink!

It has been from 13th February to 27th February at selective timings and days! It was always fun going to ice rink with my cute snowman. I always grab him for support as I’m still not professional in Ice Skating. Keeping hopes to have that confidence soon though.

I had a wonderful experience skating under the snow. There was live DJ playing some really good music, that you’d wanna dance a lot (until your’re too professional).. The snow used to fall for sometime in between the skating sessions after every 10-15 minutes.

The ticket is priced for a 100 Dhs per person, which is quite affordable for a really fun time at Dubai Ice Rink.

Well, Thank you Ice Rink for always giving us a wonderful and an extreme different experience each and every time we visit!

Did you visit them and skate under the snow-fall? If yes, do tag them and hashtag #MyIceSkatingExperience #DubaiSnowFall

BBQ Tonight Dubai

Bar B.Q. Tonight, a restaurant which is located in Jumeirah, with lots of Asian cuisine.

They’ve got an outdoor and indoor area, so if you wish to enjoy the weather by sitting outside (unless you do not feel too cold in Winters). The buffet is just indoors, so if you do not wanna walk around with your food, you’d prefer being seated inside.

The salad bar is the first thing which hits your eyes, and they’ve got a lot of different items there such as Hummous, Fattoush, Russian Salad, Plum Chutney, Mint Chutney, Mix Pickle, Beans salad, yogurt, garden salad and a lot more! They also have different kinds of soups everyday, well my favorite is Hot & Sour Soup! Starting with your meal there’s Seekh Kababs, Chapli Kababs,  Chicken Boti, Italian Fish, Ribs, Prawns etc. I’m not that much fan of vegetables so I don’t really have that but they’ve got several dishes like vegetable rice, Daal Tarka, Khattay Baingan, Palak Paneer and Kari pakora!

I usually love eating Roghni Naan with Chicken Karhayi and Chicken Briyani with lots of salad and Chutney! Their Chicken Briyani is an average spicy so you don’t have to worry! They also have Chicken Nihari and Chicken Qorma available in their buffet on specific days!

There’s a huge amount of desserts available such as Gulab Jamun, Shaahi Halwa, Gajar Halwa, Patisa, Fruit Custard, Cream Caramel and some Jelly for your little ones!

You might face a circumstance, where you might come across a slight cold food, but you can easily ask the staff to get you some fresher one! I actually liked their service, as the tables were always cleared up before we brought in more food.

My Vaniday Experience

Hello Everyone!

Are you tired of waiting for your turn at your favorite Salon? Here’s a solution to your problem! Download the Vaniday app or you can even use the website : http://www.vaniday.ae

IMG_7901

So it’s just too simple! I first thought it’ll be really hectic and un-safe to give my credit card details, but nothing went wrong at all! I only faced a mini-difficulty entering a voucher code but the staff assisted me same time and helped me get through it!

Well, to start with it has really simple steps of booking:
1) Download the application in your mobile phone (it’s available for Android and IOS)
2) Choose the service you wish to have done from any of the saloons, or to find a saloon nearby you!
3) You can choose the date and time for the service easily and proceed to the payment section!
4) Then simple Sign Up by creating an account by adding your email, username and password else just Log in if you’re a user already!
5) Then finally you select the option of adding your card details, and the payment is done online!
6) You can also write a small comment for Vaniday and the Saloon to know in-case there’s anything they should be informed about before you visit!

Vaniday

The best part is, it’s just not for ladies but men too! So all you men out there, can book appointments too!

Vaniday is filled with all the salons in UAE, which involves massages, hair care, nail treatments, makeup and much more! I must say this is the best and easiest platform for all the beauty lovers to easily book their appointments and wouldn’t even need to worry!

My Experience:

So I personally wanted to try Kyra Henna & Beauty Salon and something which was also closer to me (after all the research on Vaniday), so I went there with my mother and sister for our treatments!

So as we entered, the staff already knew we would be dropping in for an appointment and they were aware what we’d like to do & without wasting any time we started our treatments as soon as we entered!

My mother tried their Dr. Renaud Hydrating Facial which she liked it pretty much as they made an extremely relaxing atmosphere without the lights! She just had one mini complain that they didn’t know how to use the black-head pin! Overall she found it really good! It costs a 100 Dhs only and the entire treatment lasted for an hour as mentioned in Vaniday as well!

IMG_7940

Me and my sister tried the Spa Pedicure which costs 60 Dhs, I sat down and that pedicure was really worth it! The staff knew everything really well, like nail shape, cutting out the skin, and the seats were comfortable as well. I believe they should leave the customer’s feet dipped in hot water for a long time, as mine was kept in for around 4-5 mins! I absolutely loved their massage, oh it was the best! It made me feel so relaxed! I believe Spa pedicure is better than normal one as they add up spa salt and scrubbing which is not really involved in the normal one!

IMG_7930

While leaving, we didn’t have to pay or wait for any confirmation. As soon as we were done, we left as our payments were already done online!

Overall I had an amazing experience trying something new! I believe UAE just needed such a beauty platform where people could easily book treatments online specially when they’re busy with works. You can also locate salons and spa’s in your areas which you weren’t aware of and you do not need their brochures. You can simply see the services and prices online and even compare salons with one another! In order to know about more offers and discounts, do sign up with them!

Not just that, you can buy some gift cards for your loved ones, and gift them a pampering session for themselves!

So looking forward to hear your views about it!

Valentine’s Day Guide

Hey everyone! 

Hope you’re having a lovely weekend! This is the week of love and as Valentines is just around the corner, I’m sure there’s a lot to be worried about this weekend! Makeup, Hair, Gifts, Desserts or Valentine’s plans!
This blog-post will solve your problem for all the Valentine’s Day Essentials and be your mini guide!


 

Valentines Guide with Lakhsha

I’ve seen that Pink is the new common colour for Valentines (something different than the ordinary red!)

Worrying about makeup?
It’s simple! Head to your nearest Bourjois, and grab a Rouge Edition Velvet (10, Don’t pink of it or 07, Nude-ist) shade which is long lasting so you don’t have to worry about it at your date at all! Another thing handy would be a Blush (54, Rose Frisson) which is perfect for a simple Valentine look to give a cute blushy shade on your cheeks! Additionally if you’re looking for a nice mascara to stay for up to 16 hours, and give your lashes a higher volume you could go for Volume Glamour Max Definition Mascara!
With that, to create a little dark & light eye shadow look you can get a Rimmel London 5 colour palette shade (024, Pinkadilly Circus) it has got some really nice pink shades!
Nails will be just too easy; you can easily grab one of the OPI’s new Valentines collections in Pink. They’ve introduced 4 shades for Valentines but you can always go for something you like from them. I’d suggest the shade (NL127, Italian Love Affair) from OPI!

Valentines Makeup (1)Valentines Makeup (2)Valentines Makeup (3)

Now most of you are usually confused about Hair!
As the colours are pretty light and calm, curls would look amazing with these! So I’d go for curls for the type of makeup I’ve done! You can use TRESemme Hair Spray for a better hold on the hair so the curls would last for the entire day! It’s available at Boots.

If you’re planning to celebrate Valentines at home, then here’s a perfect idea for you! Sugar Moo is having some exclusive items for Valentine’s Day! It’s an online delivery bakery in Dubai with amazing cakes, cookie cups etc! You can simply order from them some really nice desserts anywhere in Dubai and it will be at your door step within 90 minutes only!
Kiss me Cake: I’ve seen this cake on their social media and when I saw this I couldn’t really believe that it was a cake! It was made so nicely that I fell in love with it! The ingredients are red velvet, cream cheese, chocolate and Oreo’s cake! Priced at 200 Dhs.
Planning to give a Valentine Proposal? How about you order The Sugar Moo Effect priced at 35 Dhs only! It’s covered with pink fondant and involves of Chocolate or vanilla cake flavours, chocolate fudge and chocolate.
They also have a ‘LOL Box’ which involves of 12 SugarMoo Dessert Truffles and each of them have a special character written on it which can express your feelings such as saying “I love you”! It’s priced at 80 Dhs only!
Do check out more on their website at www.sugarmoo.com and don’t forget to order to make this Valentine’s extra sweet! You will really not regret making this order!

LAST, GIFT! What should I gift him?
Calvin Klein has launched two perfumes recently, for men and women! Eternity NOW for Men; in three words if I express the perfumes I would say exhilarating, exotic and masculine! In my opinion, the smell is absolutely perfect for such an occasion and the gift is completely worth it! Its priced at 50ml – 230 Dhs and 100ml – 315 Dhs
Not just that, you can even create some hand-made cards with this by adding in some great colours, just in case you are not a crafty person then head to Party Centre and grab some cards, balloons and special Valentine’s decorations for your loved one!

Eternity Now, Calvin Klein
