Choosing the perfect spring fragrance

Spring is a great time to freshen up your fragrance collection and add some new perfumes to match the season. I actually have lots of perfumes in my collection, but I'm always looking to discover new ones. The British perfumery brand, Amelgo, kindly sent me* one of their new fragrances in the scent Burnt Rose. It's a beautiful blend of fresh rose like notes with pink pepper and saffron. It's a very luxurious scent, ideal for an evening out. 

With beautiful packaging, the highest quality ingredients and rich scents, the Amelgo brand is right up my street! I also really like the packaging as the opaque black bottles help to preserve the longevity of the fragrances. They're also compact enough to fit in your make up bag, and ideal for travelling. Amelgo also source unique ingredients such as oud, sandlewood and freesia from countries including South America, Asia and the Middle East. I also really like the fact that they have no harmful chemicals in any products and are strictly cruelty free.

I would highly recommend trying one of their lovely fragrances this spring and you can view all perfumes here. Although the Burnt Rose perfume is my favourite, there's a range of scents to choose from, many of which are suitable for both females and males.

What to wear for Ladies Night in Dubai

Last week I went to Ladies Night at the beach bar at the Burj Al Arab. It was probably the most iconic beach bar location I've ever been to and was even more magical when the Burj Al Arab was lit up at night. We had a lovely evening full of bottomless Prosecco.

The fashion brand Tobi* gifted me this red lace bodycon dress which I took with me to Dubai. It's perfect for nights out, dinners and drinks with friends. So I thought it was ideal to wear for drinks at the Burj Al Arab!

The dress has small straps and a lovely red lace detail throughout. It falls above my knee, making it really fitted and flattering. As the colour was bright, I decided to go for natural make up and accessorise the outfit with my Chanel bag and Valentinos.

What to wear for Friday Brunch in Dubai

One of my favourite things to do each time I visit Dubai is a classic Friday Brunch. Last week I attended brunch with my friend at Mina A'Salam at the Madinat Jumeriah. The atmosphere, food and drinks were excellent, with an iconic view of the Burj Al Arab.

Brunch in Dubai also means dressing in your best outfits, which I obviously love to do! The fashion brand Tobi* kindly gifted me this gorgeous ivory white lace dress which I decided to wear for brunch. It's perfect when in the heat and extremely flattering as it's a fitted bodycon dress with flower lace detail.

I decided to wear my Tobi dress with my favourite Valentino rockstud heels, my classic Chanel bag and Valentino sunglasses. I also wore a classic red lip as I thought it went really well with this white dress. I also love the fact that the dress has a Self Portrait vibe with the lace detail. However Tobi dresses are just a fraction of the price of Self Portrait dresses, so they're a really nice dupe.
