Leila Loves - A. Wang




Mister Wang just keeps amazing me with his creations and I particularly can't get over these cut out, half wedged, sculpted heels. White ones for summer or a darker colour for winter, I love them all.

Wearing - Summer Knit

Location - Jumeirah Beach Residences, Dubai
Knitwear in summer, in Dubai is not really doable. Fortunately this Zara top has a cotton back and knitted front which makes it very wearable.
My green envelope clutch must be one of my best buys and it combines perfectly with nude colours.

New - Prada


Sunglasses are a must-have item in the Middle East and I have been craving these Prada sunnies for a long time. The Prada Minimal Baroque sunglasses are true statement pieces and definitely worth investing in, don't you agree?

Wearing - Floral and Studs

Location - RIVA Beach Club, Dubai | Ph. Caroline
Although I wish I was, I was not at RIVA Beach to enjoy the sun. Living in Dubai and having meetings at places like this gives me the opportunity to use them as a backdrop for my outfit shots. During the week, my outfits are basically office looks. Fortunately I do not work in a corporate company and so I have a bit more freedom when it comes to wearing what I like.

Wearing - Print Jeans







Location - Dubai Marina


Taking my Isabel Marant look-a-like booties from River Island out for a walk. It's a shame I can't wear them more often but it's too hot in Dubai to wear booties, no I'm not complaining.

Leila Loves - Kérastase


| Mimetic Caviar |





|The Result |
| Ph. Sahar | Location: Belle Femme Salon, JBR Walk - Dubai |


I get a lot of questions about what kind of products I use for my hair and how I style it. Truth is, when it comes to my hair I'm a very simple girl. I am never really happy with the way my hair looks and after dying it, styling it and exposing it to a lot of sun here in Dubai my hair has got a bit dry. Kerastase invited me down to Belle Femme beauty salon to get a hair consultation with the Kerastase consultant and try the Indulgent Glam hair treatment. Being pretty scared about what she might have to say about the condition of my hair, I met the 'hair doctor' for my consultation who diagnosed and prescribed a personalized made-to-measure ritual for my hair and scalp type.

The first ritual of my hair treatment was a freshly fused personalized one from the FUSIO-DOSE range. The Fusio-Dose range consists of concentrated active formulas to meet primary hair needs and small boosters to meet secondary hair needs.
After spraying the treatment on my hair, they applied a mask and gave me a quick massage.
The second ritual, the Chronologist Ritual which is also known as mimetic caviar because of the texture. This second treatment is a mix of 2 unique textures, Masque and the mimetic caviar. The products are only mixed at the time of treatment to preserve the active ingredients.

The finishing touch was a straight blow dry and to protect my hair they first applied Nectra Thermique, a Leave-in conditioner that is heat protectant.

After the blow dry I asked about this wonder serum I heard about, Kérastase Fibre Architecte a leave in dual serum to seal & repair damaged hair and split-ends. To my surprise, there was no need for that. I don't have split ends anymore, best hair news ever.
