Gold Radiance facial at Kaya skin Clinic

Hi Beauties!

I made my first visit to Kaya skin clinic recently and tested out the Gold radiance facial. 
I choose the marina branch which was easiest for me, but they have several throughout the city.

My facial lasted around an hour and my therapist started with a consultation and checked for my concerns with my skin and what I hoped to achieve.
The treatment started off with a cleanse and ton of the face to work away any loose dead skin, then a 24K Vitamin C booster serum was applied, paired with 24K eye serum and cream which helps to smooth and brighten the area applied too.  
My favourite part of the facial is the relaxing massage, this not only help to relieve stress but also revives the skin.

The highlight of the facial was the 24K gold and collagen mask, which infuses the skin with the energising, antioxidant properties of gold to help with elasticity and to enhance youth.
After letting the mask work its magic a finishing touch of hydrating moisturiser was applied.

Another great bonus is that you can use the mask another two times, so my therapist packaged it up and gave it to me to take home, very worthwhile!

Adventureland celebrates its 14th Anniversary

Hi Beauties!

I've not blogged for such a long time or been to many events as my son has been sick, but we've finally had a diagnoses and he is gluten intolerant. It has been going on for so long but so pleased we finally have answers and hopefully things will resume as normal now!

We were invited to the Sahara centre in Sharjah to celebrate Adventureland's 14th anniversary and the facilities are amazing, some of the best I've been to in a mall so far.
My son Taylor, who is 5 absolutely loved it and didn't want to leave. There are rollercoasters, lots of jungle themed rides and also many games to play on.
We were greeted with some drinks and pastries, then headed on in for some fun, and I think my husband and I enjoyed it just as much as he did!

I would really recommend checking out Adventureland, we will be going back for sure!

Blissfully unaware at SensAsia spa

Hi Beauties!

I love visiting new spas to check out the facilities & was definitely not disappointed at SensAsia spa, they have several branches but my nearest was the Emirates Golf club.
A wonderful Valentines day treat to ask your hubby for is the Blissfully unaware package, 2.5 hours of pure luxury!

The treatments begins with an intense and warming hot stone massage, this helps to release toxins and is a wonderful warming sensation all over the body.
Next is a 60 minute Elemis facial, which is specifically tailored to your skin type, to battle any problems you may have and make your skin radiantly glowing.

My spa room was huge with 2 beds and a jacuzzi bath in and the decor was beautiful, the whole experience was so relaxing, I will definitely visit again.
The cost is 835aed but a special offer for Valentines is you can book the treatment and get another the same for half price.  So you can enjoy a romantic visit to the spa with your partner for just 1,250aed for both of you.
This must be booked before February 10th but can be redeemed up until Feb 29th at any of the four locations.

Balancing Massage at Chi Spa

Hi Beauties!

As you can tell I'm starting to get back into the swing of things after the holiday period.
Last week I had the pleasure of visiting Chi Spa, at The Shangri-La, for the first time and it was just as expected, just wonderful.

I didn't look around at the pool facilities but I'm going to check them out at a later date. 
As you enter the spa area you're greeted by a welcoming entrance with water and flower features, then I proceeded to the changing rooms to put on my slippers and robe.
I was a little early so I sat in the relaxation area, which also had a sauna and 2 jacuzzi pools. 
My therapist took me into the treatment room where the ambience was perfect.

I had chosen to have the Chi balance massage, a 90 minute palm massage which focuses on vitality, clarity and peace of mind.
I can honestly say it was one of the best massages I've had, I suffer with alot of tension in my neck, shoulders and back and this was so relaxing I'm sure I was asleep for the majority.

After my 90 minutes of bliss, I was taken to an area for herbal tea, almonds and prunes, which was a lovely addition to end the treatment.
The spa was larger than I expected with several room and facilities on offer.

Amazing Thai lunch in Benjarong

Hi Beauties!

Before the holidays I visited The Dusit Thani hotel in DIFC with 2 of my girlfriends, to try out the ladies lunch in Benjarong, a wonderful Thai restaurant located on the 24th floor.
With its peaceful and traditionally decorated ambience, it is the perfect setting for a romantic meal or a enjoyable night out with friends.

The ladies lunch is such good value at only 139aed for 3 courses, which also includes soft drinks.
Thai happens to be my favourite type of food and was pleasantly full at the end.

To begin a chef came to our table, then personally made each of us a papaya salad, individually asking how spicy we would like it made. This was definitely my favourite item & great learning how to make the dish too.
Next I had pad thai, which was also delicious, the noodles and prawns were perfectly cooked then followed by a light pudding which finished off the meal nicely.

Whilst eating pudding another chef came to the table and demonstrated his skills on cutting and showed us how he could make a flower arrangement from a beetroot.
We all agreed what a fantastic few hours out and how much we enjoyed the experience, as it wasn't just your average lunch but Benjarong had put their own special touch on it.

Tan Organic hits the UAE

Hi Beauties!

An award winning 100% natural and organic tanning brand has come to Dubai.
With it's anti-aging Aloe Vera based formula, its super moisturising and non harmful to the skin.
Suitable for all skin types and can be layered to the colour which you desire.

Also within the range is an exfoliating glove to prep the skin & an application mitt to stop you getting discoloured hands.
For use after tanning to help give silky soft skin, a moisturising dry oil can prolong your sunkissed glow a little longer. It can also be used as a normal body oil too & contains 8 plant oils.

I used to fake tan every week in the UK, but haven't done in around 2 years so I was looking forward to trying this product.
I exfoliated with the glove to remove any dead skin cells, then I applied a tiny drop of oil to my dry areas around the elbows, ankles & knees to stop the colour clinging.

I didn't want to be to dark so just applied one layer of colour to see how it went. I could automatically see a very slight colour change, then left it on overnight to develop.
When I woke up in the morning the tan was a very nice bronzed beach glow, not to dark and not to light, just perfect!

Tan Organic has its own instagram, click here to find out more.

The White Room, Marina Mall

Hi Beauties!

I've visited The White room a few times as its an easy location connected to Marina Mall & is such good value.
This time was for a massage, the room was compact but the lighting & music was perfect for an hour of complete bliss.

My therapist was lovely and regularly checked if the pressure was ok, I felt so relaxed after, as she used an aromatheraphy oil to relax my mind and muscles.
Its a salon thats always welcoming and like I say convenience is a plus too and there is also another branch in Motor City, after I finished I went into the mall and had a quick lunch before heading out for the afternoon.
Check out their facebook page for details of treatments on offer.
