Dubai Mall is my absolute favorite place to be as I do my cardio here.. I mean my shopping . Along with plethora of brands and stores popping in there is a wide variety of dining options available too!
Spotted Scoozi in Dubai Mall that serves the two most popular cuisines, Japanese and Italian. At first I was wondering which cuisine to choose but since there was large variety my guests and I decided to order the best from both.
They have fantastic selection of coolers to begin with. My favorite of all was the strawberry cooler, so refreshing & the fruit flavor bursts out making even the most warmest days go cool. For appetizers my guests & I selected mozzarella crocante, vegetable spring rolls, Tricolore (burrata dish) and avocado maki. Surprisingly everyone voted for avocado maki & crocante to be the favorites from this set of courses. Rest of the dishes werent less delicious but these two were just perfect!
For mains we all went italian as vegetarian selections were not too many in japanese. We ordered a Margarita pizza, gnocchi quattro formaggi, ravioli & Farfelle Al Funghi. Our favorite was definitely the gnocchi quattro formaggi as it was so creamy & so rich! All their dishes are well portioned and their pasta are all fresh! My guests were truly impressed with the main courses & so was I.
For desserts we opted for Chocolate fondant & Flourless chocolate cake. Both of them rich, chocolaty and simply superb! Lacked a bit in presentation but overall tasted really good!
My only concern was the service as it was a bit slow post the appetizers and the staff were hesitant to give their suggestions on the dishes. Also they weren’t attentive enough as many a times I had to repeat my queries.
Pro tip: If you ask for a table towards the fountains you get the perfect view without having to stand in crowds or even in heat for that matter of fact. Paired with delicious food, Scoozi makes the perfect place to dine in.

Few days back the lovely Arwa from Slice of Dubai blog approached me for a guest post contribution on her blog. The topic was for bloggers beauty must haves. You can read her complete compilation post here with my mini review along with choices of many well known bloggers. Also adding a detailed review below so that you can understand how this product could fit in your daily beauty needs.
My favorite product that I heart is the Clarins Three Dot liner. I had heard not-so-good reviews about it but last year I decided to give it a try.I was recommended the product at Clarins boutique, thought at first that maybe it isn’t for me but then bought it anyways.
Why I love the product?
Though its not as thick as the conventional liners, it is still a better product than the felt tip liners available. As much as I love make-up, I prefer the day makeup to be as light as possible. So I stick to sunscreen lotion, thinnest line of my clarins three dot liner and a lip balm.
Great thing about Clarins Three Dot liner is that it helps in fills my lashes, giving it a fuller look. I am blessed with beautiful lashes and this product totally defines the eyes making it stand out without giving that make-uppy look. I have been compliments so many times on how defined and fresh my eyes look. It all because of use of this simple product that can help you achieve the perfect no make up look.
You could use this product as a normal eyeliner, its not runny and the color is intense. However it you are someone who loves doing cat eye or the arabian look, this product is definitely not for you. Its a bit overpriced but I really like the way it sets on my eyes which is why I feel its worth spending Aed 119. Product is available in two colors black and brown. Its easy to apply, just keep filling the top and bottom lashes to see the difference.
Purchased from: Clarins Boutique, Dubai Mall
Have you tried this liner? Whats your take? let me know in comments below.
Yes you read that right.. its a shower jelly!
Its wobbly, its smells fantastic and it is super fun to use. As Lush staff told me, this product is a party in a pot. Spotted this product at Lush Dubal Mall, I instantly fell in love with it. Asked the staff there if I could try it out prior purchase and they were happy to help me with it. Plop! the jelly landed on my hand and rest is history..
I was sold when I read the description ” If a bar of soap and a bottle of shower gel had a steamy affair, this would be the resulting jelly baby”
Excerpts from official Lush website:
“This is a sweet, sweet little cutie-pie. We start this jelly by making an infusion with cherries and coconut, we then add carrageen seaweed and boil it up until it turns all jelly and wobbly on us. Then we have to get it into the mould quickly, before it sets in the pan! ”
What I like about sweetie pie shower gel?
The sweet fragrance
The wobbliness is super cute and fun not only for kids but adults too.
Its sparkly. The glitter doesn’t exactly stick to the body but sort of makes it look like light shimmer has been dusted.
It retains moisture on the skin leaving it supple for a long while.
Vegan product and free of any harmful chemicals.
What I didn’t like about the product?
Jelly is a bit too delicate. I have long nails and while using Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly I crumbled a bit accidentally. You cant put the crumbled bits back on the jelly.
The product contains coconut too, however I couldn’t get fragrance of any.
Will I repurchase it? I will purchase this again because its cute and the idea of wobbly jelly is fascinating to me. It suits my skin type (sensitive) and leaves it soft for a long while. It is one of my favorite from Lush handmade cosmetics.
Product was purchased from Lush Dubai Mall for AED 43 (100gm pot)

Real Nail Polish strips were introduced in market around two years back. With use of this product, one can easily achieve Salon like effects anytime.
The first time I discovered this product was when I was visiting a remote area in my home country for a destination wedding. My friends and I had no idea if we will be able to find a Salon there or even any professional beauty services. Now for weddings and important events its ideally advisable to either have a french manicure done or get a gel manicure done of a neutral color. While we had none of those options available to us but still wanted to rock the look with perfect nails. At that time I found Sally Hansen Real Nail Strips at one of beauty stores in UAE. Tried it and loved it! Took 3 designs along with me and they worked perfectly!
Every pack contains 16 nail polish strips, a cuticle stick, mini file and a buffer.
Application: Its very simple..just peel the plastic off the top coat and back. Apply on the nails and shape with the nail file. Can be removed with any nail polish remover.
Advantages: As I have mentioned before, it gives the salon look to your nails. Lasts for about two weeks and is easy to apply. It doesn’t require any drying, however for long lasting effect you can add a top clear coat.
Disadvantages: Once the pack is opened, you have got to finish the strips else they dry off on the plastic itself.
There are about 40 shades for Sally Hansen Real Nail Polish Strips. My favorite shade is 320 Kitty Kitty.
Sally Hansen Real Nail Polish Strips are available at all stores selling Sally Hansen products. I got mine from Waitrose Dubai Mall recently.
I am obsessed with Lush’s philosophy and stories behind the making of every product. Lush is a brand that connects to you instantly, you know the story, you know its packed with love, the staff is soo super friendly..how can anyone resist that kind of marketing!
Excited to mention this awesome body care product, the one I have been using for a while now. My friend was the one who introduced me to this LUSH Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner. We were at the salon getting our arms waxed, that’s when she noticed my skin going dry & red. I have a very sensitive skin and it doesn’t easily adapt to any body lotions that are available. For years I have been using medicated lotions but they aren’t of any use and I hate the smell of medicated lotions. (they smell like I am just out of hospital ugh..)
Anyways,so when I was suggested to try out LUSH Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner I was a bit hesitant because of the skin condition but again Lush is organic, handmade and no chemicals are involved so I knew I was safe even if I gave a try. Visited the Dubai Mall branch to grab myself a pot of this goodness. A bit on pricier side but its worth because its so good.
Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner was invented by Ms. Rowena who thought to herself that how handy it would be if there was a conditioner for body like there are for hair. So she invented this lovely product that can be used exactly the same way a hair conditioner is used except that this is for body and not hair (Checked with the staff no harm if you use on the hair too). So you just have to slather it on your skin, wait for about a minute and rinse it off.
I did exactly as per the instructions, applied it on my dry arms and body. Waited a minute, rinsed and off I was.. The fragrance of the lotion is just amazing. My skin felt all that goodness of Argan oil, Cocoa butter, Cupuaçu butter, Brazil nut oil, Almond oil, Shea butter & goji berry juice. I didn’t have any issues with the product, no redness, and super soft skin just like a rose petal. The product itself is packaged well with all instructions mentioned. The staff is always ready to show you how to use the product in case if you aren’t clear with it. If you are like me, the curious one who likes to know how products are made, you can visit Lush’s official Youtube Channel and check out the process.
Overall, Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner is amazing on dry skin, leaves it soft and supple. However when my sister used the body conditioner, it didn’t have the same effect. The conditioner made no difference to her (Normal type) skin but at least it was smelling nice. Also they need to sell it in smaller pots, I’d buy it and it would be a great add the travel beauty kit.
Lush Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner is available at all Lush stores across UAE. Priced at 185AED for a pot of 225g.
