I had a chance to drop in for the Breast Cancer Fundraiser that was hosted by Women’s Society and Development Club on Sunday, and here are some photos I took from the event. It was so much fun and very well organized.

Spotted a few Fyunka totes from Impression Boutique.

I came upon this article that Hind Beljafla, the designer behind D.A.S wrote on her blog the other day regarding Kim Kardashian‘s visit to Dubai. It expresses what a lot of us were thinking and it really resonated with people, because I kept receiving broadcasts about it. Thank you, Hind.

Haul: Online Purchases by velvetrendezvous

One of my favourite things to watch on YouTube are hauls! I love watching what people got and I’m always interested in trying out new things. I thought I’d make regular posts on stuff that I have gotten recently for people like me who enjoy these sort of things.

These are my latest online purchases, all of these products are cult favourites and they have been so hype up on YT. I wanted to see for myself if they live up to it!

1) Liz Earle’s Essentials Try-Me Kit – This kit includes the famous Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, which comes with a muslin cloth to exfoliate the skin. I read reviews about their entire skincare line & it’s apparently really good. I wanted to sample them before committing to the full sizes. I have to say, I loved their packaging, they also included samples of their new Sheer Skin Tint foundation in the three different shades that it comes in. I’ve tried it on today and I absolutely loved it! I will definitely get it with my next purchase.

2) MoroccanOil Dry-No-More Scalp – I have a very dry and sensitive scalp and this sounds promising.

3) MoroccanOil – This also has gotten rave reviews on YT. It basically works as a defrizzer and as a heat protectant. It’s such a THICK oil, I wouldn’t use it as an all-over-the-hair treatment, I imagine it to be a nightmare to get out of the hair. lol.

4) Korres Lip Butter in Wild Rose – I’ve tried this from my friend S. and I loved it so much, I had to get it. It’s so moisturising and give off a subtle color to your lips, so pretty. I prefer the tubey lip butters to the ones that come in pots, they’re more hygienic.

Have you tried any of these products? Let me know!

The event will be held at Education City‘s new Student Center, in the Majlis Area from 11 a.m to 3 p.m.

I think this is a great initiative. Be sure to check it out this coming Sunday!
