Finding the right Foundation

I spent about 2 weeks last month just researching on foundations for Masala Magazine. And turns out there was a lot more to learn than just dabbing it on the back of your hand at Sephora. This season has been all about foundation launches, what with Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty’s 40 foundation shades, Huda Kattan’s Faux…

Silences

I battle many monsters in my head, each a Hydra, Medusa. I can’t wrap my head around the heads to be beheaded without turning to stone. Nietzsche lied. We have gazed into the abyss long enough. and she has never not even once gazed back.

Happiness Collides

Happiness collides, With a little sorrow and mumbling lies. Knew you from a time before, Knew enough, to know you more. You continue looking, Straight into my eyes.

Their chocolate waffles with caramelized bananas are to DIE for, but, they keep their menu updated and these Oreo Waffles are everything! Available every day; costs about AED 150 for two…

Mauritius’s New Retro Chic Tropical Retreat

Heaven was modelled on Mauritius — at least, according to the writer Mark Twain — and the lush greenery and gently lapping shallow lagoon waters of Grand Gaube would have you believing this.

How does changing weather effect your skin?

Last month, I wrote an article for Masala Magazine about how the skin is affected when the weather changes. So, here we go: The temperatures are finally starting to drop, and the outdoors will be friendly again. And while this change in the season probably requires a change in wardrobe, it also requires a change in…
