HOME BODY: Décor Finds To Give Your Abode A Speedy Boost

Chic little buys to transform your living space


A beautifully decorated abode always makes for a welcoming atmosphere after a long day out.

Take the time to invest in your space and pick up pieces to reflect your lifestyle and interests, whether that’s through ornaments, furnishings or books and photographs.

The shopping malls in the Middle East are brimming with interior shops, from luxurious décor stores such as The One, Villeroy & Boch and Harvey Nichols Dubai, to more purse-friendly buys found in Zara Home, Crate & Barrel Dubai and Home Centre.

Scroll down below where we share our top three buys to elevate any room in a flash.
White bedspread, Zara Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Muscat
We spend more time in our bedrooms than anywhere else at home, so we say make it a little extra special with a few finishing touches, such as this luxurious white fluffy bedspread - a cosy addition for the cooler months ahead.  

Décor tip: Most of us sleep better in clutter-free rooms, with simple and soothing colour palettes. So opt for natural shades of whites and light greys or taupe. You can always add interest with different textures, fabrics and prints.

Marble cheese board, Dhs89, Crate & Barrel, visit Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif

A sleek cheese board is a guaranteed way to impress visiting guests. Load up this stylish marble board with a few of your favourite gourmet treats and garnishes.

Wire baskets, Zara Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Muscat

We’ll admit to having our fair share of untidy corners at home. No matter how hard we try, clutter just seems to accumulate  - especially when it comes to children’s toys. Help keep any odd-ends from messing up your space with stylish baskets and boxes.

Beauty Talk: The Answer to your Biggest Beauty Dilemmas

With just one day to go before an important event, an angry red pimple has risen over night and is now glaring back at you from the mirror. We’ve all fallen victim to an SOS beauty woe, be it swollen spots, unsightly ingrown hairs or even lank, greasy roots.

Here, we share our pro beauty hacks to combatting any concern.

The issue: broken-out pores
Whether we’ve had one too many late nights combined with fast food or a hormonal outburst around our chin, pimples happen to the best of us. Wherever the location of your new addition, do not pick or squeeze, especially if you have important plans for the next day. This will only aggravate the area, increasing the size and redness. Instead, keep your skin squeaky clean and, if you can, forgo the make-up, which will only further clog up your pores. Apply an overnight zinc or salicylic acid-based treatment, and in the morning ice the area for a few minutes to bring redness and swelling down.

 

Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions, Dhs152, Sephora Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates

The issue: in-grown hairs
Most women will struggle with in-grown hairs at one point or another. The main problem areas are usually on legs, underarms or bikini lines. While this skin issue can be tricky to get rid of, regularly (and gently) exfoliating the area with scrubbing gloves and a mild scent-free body wash before and after hair removal will certainly help reduce the bumps.
If shaving is your preferred hair removal method, be sure to always use a moisturizing shaving cream or foam and shave in the direction (never against) your hair’s natural growth. 

 

Exfoliating Bath Gloves, Dhs26, The Body Shop, visit Mall of the Emirates

The issue: an oily scalp
An oily scalp could be the result of over-washing your hair or be a build-up of products such as serum and holding spray. A brilliant and natural way to remove excess build-up and deeply cleanse locks is a mix of apple cider vinegar and water – you can pick up a bottle from Carrefour supermarket in Mall of the Emirates. Similarly try a salon-strength balancing shampoo and do a double cleanse before lightly conditioning the ends.

Autumn/Winter 2016-17 Beauty

 

From high-sheen metallic lids to power brows, the new season catwalks did not disappoint in the beauty stakes.

Gone are the tanned beachy complexions and neon nails of summer. In their place, we see vamped-up cherry-red lips, sultry smokey eyes and a host of other wintery looks.

Here, we go behind the curtain to bring you our favourite backstage beauty looks to try yourself, along with the best beauty products to buy from Mall of the Emirates in Dubai.


Over at Milan Fashion Week, the models in the Angelo Marani show rocked metallic gunmetal lids, paired with dewy skin and a quick slick of lip balm. This easy-to-achieve beauty look requires no liner or falsies. Simply coat your lids with a shimmery wash of cream shadow and top off with lashings of mascara.
Beauty buy: Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Galaxy, Dhs160, Bobbi Brown at Harvey Nichols Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates


Power brows are back, as spotted on the Salvatore Ferragamo catwalk. Framing the face, brows were thick and softy structured. Carefully trim or tweeze any strays before combing into place and setting with a brow powder to match your hair colour. If you prefer a more natural look, opt for a super long-lasting gel formula, such as the newly launched Gimme Brow Gel by Benefit.
Beauty buy: Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel, Dhs125, Benefit at Sephora Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates


Cherry-red lips were a popular pick on the Winter runways. At the MSGM
show, the models’ pouts were painted in a glossy scarlet, offset with clean, glowing skin and a subtle slick of mascara. To ensure your lippy stays put all night long, prep your lips by buffing with a soft toothbrush before applying balm and a red lipstick. Dust with a translucent powder to set, before adding a coat of clear gloss.
Beauty buy: Liquid Lipstick in Belle Époque, Dhs69, H&M, visit Mall of the Emirates

High Beam, Dhs130, Sephora Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates
Long day at the office? Nothing transforms a lacklustre complexion quite like a touch of shimmery highlighter. Instantly brighten and enhance your cheekbones, Cupid’s bow and brow bones with a dab of luminous liquid such as Benefit’s cult High Beam.

Lipstick in Ruby Woo, Dhs104, M.A.C at Harvey Nichols Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates

Autumn/Winter 2016-17: The Edit

With September marking the start of the new fashion season, we’re looking to some of the best shops in Mall of the Emirates to help update our wardrobe.

Leather trousers, Dhs7,060, Isabel Marant at Boutique 1, visit Mall of the Emirates
Leather just got a high gloss makeover courtesy of Parisian designer Isabel Marant. These buttery soft trousers will be a closet staple for years to come. Team with tucked-in T-shirts and heeled boots for easy everyday style.

Style tip: Look after your investment leather pieces by spot-cleaning. Simply apply pressure with a clean cloth and don’t rub as this can abrade the skin. If the piece really needs a deep clean, look for a dry cleaner who specialises in leather items - and remember to avoid washing machines at all costs!

Leather boots, Dhs4,195, Burberry Dubai, Mall of the Emirates
It’s finally the season to bring out your boots. After many months of sandals and espadrilles, we’re embracing all that autumn dressing has to offer in the shoe department. These luxurious leather boots accented with gold geometric heels by Burberry are topping our new season wish list.

Style tip: These classic leather boots are a true sartorial must-have. Wear with everything from skinny-fit denim to swingy midi skirts.

Printed blouse, Dhs169, Zara Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates
Look out for soft bloom prints in burnished Autumnal shades of green, amber and chocolate. Complete with ruffled shoulders and long semi-sheer sleeves, we’re loving this pretty piece by Zara.

Shopping tip: Zara Dubai is one of our top places to look for on-trend IT pieces without breaking the bank. Case in point: this stylish floral blouse.

The Great Outdoors - Décor Buys In Dubai

  • Great Outdoors  00

    With the cooler months on the horizon, it’s high time to overhaul your backyard. After many months of retreating to the air conditioning and neglecting our gardens, we’re looking to spruce up our outdoor space with a few new décor purchases.

    The shopping malls in the Middle East are filled places to pick up homewares, from high-end interior stores such as The One, Villeroy & Boch and Harvey Nichols Dubai, to more affordable spots including Zara Home, Crate & Barrel Dubai and Home Centre.

    We’ve scoured all of shops to source the most stylish pieces to buy now.

  • Great Outdoors 01

    Artificial tree, Marina Home Interiors, visit Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif
    Even the most eager green-thumbed friends wouldn’t know this orange tree was a faux.

    Décor tip: If you’re not one for gardening look out for fake plants and trees instead – Artificial greenery is a lot less upkeep than the real thing and won’t malt leaves all over your patio. You can always add small succulents and cactuses into the mix, both of which require little care or watering.

  • Great Outdoors 023

    Outdoor pillows, Crate & Barrel, visit Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif
    Pair bright bohemian prints with block colour cushions on outdoor chairs and sofas.

    Décor tip: Colourful cushions and printed rugs are an easy way to add instant life to a compact balcony or terrace. To keep the look cohesive, stick to a colour scheme but mix it up with a selection of different textures and patterns.

  • Great Outdoors 03

    Metal lanterns, Zara Home, visit Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira, City Centre Bahrain and City Centre Muscat

    Décor tip: Load up on Arabesque lanterns in a mishmash of metals such as bronze and burnished silver. We advise buying battery candles as opposed to the real thing - they last longer, don’t make a waxy mess and won’t blow out in the breeze.

Closet Confidential

  • Closet Confidential  00

    Will we ever really wear that red snakeskin skirt? And how often will we really put on that pair of thigh-high suede boots - especially in a country where the sun shines bright for nearly 365 days of the year!

    These fleeting purchases are best saved for the high street, where you can pick up on-trend items for a pocket-friendly price tag at stores such as Zara Dubai and H&M Dubai. A smart tailored blazer or little black dress however might be worth parting with a few extra dirhams for.

    Read on below as we reveal exactly where to invest on love-forever staples, and how to save on this season’s top trends.

    Head to Mall of the Emirates in Dubai where you’ll find everything listed below and a plenty more all at your fingertips…

  • Closet Confidential 01

    Black denim flares, Dhs199, Mango, visit Mall of the Emirates

    SAVE: Jean trends come and go. Case in point: flares. Bell-bottoms trousers were huge in the Seventies, briefly came back in the nineties and have recently come back in fashion for the new season. Mango Dubai is one of our favourite spots to pick up affordable denim.

  • Closet Confidential 023

    Leather handbag, Dhs15,495, Burberry Dubai, Mall of the Emirates
    SPEND: Burberry’s best-selling ‘Banner’ bag comes in a huge variety of different exotic skins, colours and sizes. Opt for a neutral shade that will coordinate with a multitude of outfits - and save the zebra print and studded style for a work promotion or birthday treat!

    Shopping tip: What watches are to the gents, bags are to women. We carry them every day and they hold all our necessities. A good quality everyday tote needs to be big enough to fit the essentials (phone, work files, emergency make-up bag, keys, perfume – the list could go on) while still being lightweight, and stylish of course. We’ll admit to a cupboard full of trendy bargain totes, but nothing beats carrying a beautifully crafted designer bag while we go about our days.

     

  • Closet Confidential 03

    Shoes, Dhs469, Zara Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates
    SAVE: Pom poms are having a major moment in the world of fashion. We’ve spotted them everywhere; embellished onto bags, necklaces and summer frocks. This pair of spindly statement heels is bang on trend without breaking the bank.

    Shopping tip: Get a head start and be the first in line for all the biggest seasonal sales as well as receive special deal alerts, by signing up to all your favourite shops’ frequent customer programs. Most stores now offer this, simply check in with an store sales assistant for further details.

  • Closet Confidential 04

    Floral dress, Dhs3,550, Erdem at Boutique 1, visit Mall of the Emirates
    SPEND: A floral frock is one of those wardrobes staples that you will pull out of your wardrobe and wear time and time again. Whether you pair with flat sandals for the weekend or smart soles and a blazer for the office, a bright bud print will forever be in style.

Take Flight: Pack like a pro

  • take-flight

    Off on a beach escape to a far-flung island or a luxury hotel in Dubai? Save precious suitcase space and look the part with our travel guide.

    First up, take the time to make a list and set aside everything you want to take on your holiday. Begin with the essential wardrobe staples, such as swimwear, sundresses, evening attire and accessories, before placing into categories.

    We like to divide our outfits into daily activities such as beach days, sport adventures and evening dinners, along with shoes for each. Next, cut back by removing at least one outfit from every pile – this will cut the unwanted bulk, as chances are you will end up re-wearing certain clothing items.

    Maximise the usage of each article of clothing by packing multitasking pieces. We’ve looked to the shopping malls in Dubai to find you the top three pieces to wear for day-to-night occasions.

  • take-flight 01

    Metal necklace, Dhs135, Forever 21 Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates

    Load up on accessories. A selection of statement jewels, belts and bags take up barley any space in your suitcase and have the power to completely transform your look.  Nodding to this season’s tribal trend, Forever 21’s incredible layered necklace will instantly elevate a simple dress or top.

Beauty IT List: Hot Weather Skin Saviours

We’ve all seen the pictures of gleaming supermodels and actresses looking picture-perfect in glossy magazines. But then there are the off-duty tabloid snaps of these leading ladies on the beach, all smooth silky curls, glowing skin and not a blemish in sight. How do they do it?

Here in the UAE, the sweltering summer temperatures certainly make it tricky to remain polished – especially if you plan on hitting the beach. 

But don’t worry – we’re on hand to help! We’ve grilled the leading brains in the beauty business to bring you the secret summer buys the A-list stars can’t live without.

 

 

Whether you’re on holiday and staying at a Dubai hotel or enjoying a weekend in the sun, be sure to pack these multitasking beauty favourites and let them do the hard work while you relax.

 

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse, Dhs179, Boots, visit Mall of the Emirates

With more than 20 million bottles sold, this multipurpose dry oil has earned its status as a cult beauty icon. This one-stop shop for face, body and hair nourishes without the greasy finish most oils leave on skin. Enriched with vitamin E and precious plant oils, along with notes of rose, orange blossom and coconut, this softening oil can also be worn as perfume.

 

 

 

 

 Lancaster Sun Beauty SPF50, Dhs120, Paris Gallery, visit Mall of the Emirates
We all know the importance of a high daily SPF, but most formulas leave a white residue or chalky texture. We recommend trying Lancaster’s best-selling Comfort Touch Cream, which has quickly become our go-to thanks to the lightweight and smooth finish. The formula aids in a safe tan while also working to maintain the skin’s firmness and improve elasticity.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Kiss And Blush, Dhs187, Paris Gallery, visit Mall of the Emirates
Thanks to sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat, there is usually no need for make-up at the beach. But a dab of pink on lips and cheek will add a pop of healthy colour. This luxurious formula is a top pick and won’t melt in the heat.

Love Is In The Air

With a host of summer nuptials on the horizon, there’s no better time than the present to hit the Dubai shops and get your wedding wardrobe sorted.

As a guest of the bridal party there are some wedding wardrobe rules to abide by. For example, one must never wear white as this is often reserved solely for the bride and (depending on the theme) we advise avoiding anything overtly showy such as a sequinned mini dress or a black leather jumpsuit. Instead, steer towards elegant maxi dresses or tailored cocktail frocks.

Many wedding invitations will arrive with a dress code, which could range from black-tie to cocktail attire – this will help guide your fashion choice.

One must also consider the climate, especially if you are attending a destination wedding. Be sure to pack a shawl or smart jacket to wear over your dress. And if your clutch bag has space, take a pair of pretty flats to allow for extra hours on the dance floor.

We’ve done the mall trawling for you and found three beautiful dresses to suit any type of occasion. Best bit? They are all available in Dubai shopping malls now.

 

Blue maxi dress, Dhs199, H&M, visit Mall of the Emirates

A classic navy gown with feminine lace inserts on the bodice. This wear-forever dress will suit a multitude of different events and rings in at under Dhs200.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orange gown, Dhs499, Mango, visit Mall of the Emirates

A vibrant choice, this blood orange gown is ideal for hot-weather ceremonies and parties. The flattering V-neck and synched satin bow add instant glamour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blue printed gown, Dhs1,351, BCBGMAXAZRIA, visit Mall of the Emirates
This romantic sky blue gown is perfect for summery garden weddings. We love the one-shoulder asymmetric style and soft floral print.

Give Your Home a Makeover

What makes a house a home is how you decorate the interiors. Yes, each room in your home needs to serve its purpose. But it should also be welcoming to the people living in it and for their guests. When you do up your interiors, every piece of furniture and accessory plays an important role. We find out the latest trends to give your home a new look for the new season.

It’s all about prints
From graphics and geometrics, ikats and kilims to plaids and paisleys, prints are making a comeback in home furnishings and fabrics this season. Combined with a muted or a neutral background, these colourful prints can add a special touch to every room in your house.

Walk into Crate & Barrel at the Mall of the Emirates, Dubai for bright, contemporary furnishings to brighten up your indoors.

Understated luxury
Dubai has always loved luxury. Now people have moved away from expensive labels and over-the-top décor. There is a growing trend towards real craftsmanship and understated luxury. Instead of highly glossy and crystal studded features and fittings with a lot of glitter and bling, it’s all about adding subtle touches with materials like brass, silver and mother of pearl. Now you can make a muted statement in your home with Marina Home’s collections, available at the Mall of the Emirates, Dubai. Marina’s selection will create a visual harmony in your homes. With products sourced from more than 20 countries across 4 continents, Marina’s designs combine the classic and the contemporary, modern with the rustic and the avant garde with the exotic.

Go all white
A pristine, all white decor is inviting, serene and romantic. You can easily get this look from White Company at the Mall of the Emirates. Their collection of stylish and beautifully designed products speaks of quality and yet remains affordable. The attention to detail is seen in everything from the hand-stitching on a luxurious high thread-count pillowcase to the clean lines of their furniture.

Traditional makes a comeback
Traditional handicrafts get some well-deserved attention this year as one of the most trending home designs. Crafts from all around the world can add an elegant touch to your home. Walk into Persian Carpet House at the Mall of the Emirates to shop for authentic hand-tufted carpets, handicrafts and antiques from the region. They are one of the biggest retailers and wholesalers of rugs and carpets in the Emirates.

5 Ways To Shop Smarter

Become a savvy-shopper with our top wallet-saving tips for a day at the Dubai malls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SALE ALERTS
Be the first in line for great deals by asking your favourite shopping stores in the Dubai malls to sign you up to their special customer sale alerts. They will add you to a special list and you’ll receive exclusive text messages about upcoming discounts or sales.

MAKE A LIST
As you would on a grocery shop, write down exactly what you need (or want) from your trip to the mall. Whether it’s the perfect little black dress to wear for a big meeting, or a new pair of school shoes for the kids, stick to the list and visit the stores you know will have the items you’re looking for.

ALWAYS ASK
If you can’t find your size always ask one of the helpful shop assistants. They often have extras in the back storage room or can locate a particular item in another store location. For example the H&M in Mall of the Emirates might be out of an item, whereas the H&M in City Centre Mirdif or City Centre Deira might have it in stock.

APP AID
If you’re unsure about exchange rates, simply download a currency app to your phone. This way you will know the exact price in your currency. Our favourite apps are XE Currency and Currency Converter Plus; both are available to download at the app store online.

DUBAI SHOPPING FESTIVALS
The Dubai shopping malls often hold special events such as 10 Years of Wow and World of Fashion at Mall of the Emirates. The shopping extravaganzas offer incredible money-saving deals and fun entertainment for all to enjoy.
