What do you love about being a fashion blogger?

I love the fact that my job is all about discovering, learning and sharing!

 

You collaborate with designers in a range of different ways, for example you recently represented Dubai in Nine West's #PumpRockers campaign and you worked on a styling collaboration with Harvey Nichols, London in the summer. Are there any exciting collaborations coming up that you can share with us?

I've been lucky to work with designers and brands that I personally love. Nothing that I'm able to share at the moment, but stay tuned!

 

Are there any UAE designers that you are loving at the moment?

Nathalie Trad for clutches, Rami Al Ali for couture and Zayan The Label and Mochi for ready to wear.

 

Can you share your top shopping destinations in Dubai?

I shop 98% of what I own online but if it's boutiques, I love S*uce, Boutique1 and Harvey Nichols.

You travel a lot and have lived in a few different countries, do you have a favourite country or city that would be your go to holiday destination?  

My favourite cities are NYC, LA, Montreal and London - other than Dubai of course! If I want to relax, I'd stay at a retreat on an island.

 

What are the travel essentials you will always have in your suitcase?

My Clarins flash balm, gel stickers for under the eyes, cashmere blanket and my iPad.

And finally how would you describe your accessorising style? 

I'm quite understated but I do stack up my rings. I love a good choker and I never really wear earrings on my lobes!
