Movie Review: Desi Boyz

2008 marked the year where all dance floors, weddings and events were dominated by one phrase “Ain’t nobody like a Desi Girl.” Fast forward to 2011 and we are being told to “Make Some Noise for the Desi Boyz.”

Desi Boyz stars a pair of mega eye-candy, Akshay Kumar and John Abraham, with glamour quotient provided by Deepika Padukone and Chitrangada Singh. The film marks the directorial debut of Rohit Dhawan, son of experienced comedy director David Dhawan and the viewer goes in expecting a light-hearted comic caper.

Bras for a Cause – Dubai Edition Fashion Show

Dollz in Dubai has a new home! In the next few weeks, we’ll be moving over to www.dollzindubai.com and will eventually stop updating this site. So make sure you check out our new home and register there for the latest updates!

Some time back, we highlighted the great campaign called “Bras for a Cause” to raise awareness about breast cancer within the region.  As an ambassador, we participated in their design contest and appreciate all your votes.  And as October-Breast Cancer Awareness Month winds down, the final leg of this campaign is here.

On Monday, October 24th, Bras for a Cause is holding its Dubai edition Fashion Show at the Monarch hotel. After a successful show in Beirut, the Dubai show is packed with glitz and glamour to support a great cause. We are excited to see designs from Dubai-based designer Amanda Gedeon of BOW and the region’s prominent bloggers walking down the runway in these special designs.

Review: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick

Dollz in Dubai has a new home! In the next few weeks, we’ll be moving over to www.dollzindubai.com and will eventually stop updating this site. So make sure you check out our new home and register there for the latest updates!

When I think back to the first makeup item I truly fell in love with, it has to be the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick. So as a disclaimer, this isn’t really a review but more of a must-have product in any beauty kit.

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks are mainly meant to be used as a bronzer/highlighter on top of blush.  However, I find that they can be used directly as a blush and even as an eyeshadow palette.

Miss Piggy for MAC

I’m a huge Muppets fan, especially Miss Piggy. And some of my friends might even say that I tend to get as dramatic and needy as Miss Piggy does.  So of course I was excited to find out there was a Muppets movie out this Thanksgiving:

And now, MAC Cosmetics have announced a special Miss Piggy collaboration! This collection will only be sold online and will consist of the main items you need to get Miss Piggy’s dramatic eyes: blue-pink eyeshadow, liquid liner and mascara. What’s more, there is even a Muppets-themed OPI collection!

I can’t wait for Thanksgiving! And even though this collection might not be available in Dubai, I’ll definitely be placing my online order. Anything for Miss Piggy!

(And I just realized what I should be this Halloween…)

How much makeup do you wear?

For the past few months, I’ve considerably cut down on how much makeup I wear. Mostly because it saves time in the morning and I don’t need to go through a rigorous cleansing ritual at the end of the night.

Recently, a study by Procter & Gamble, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and others did a comparison study on women wearing no makeup or one of three different cosmetic looks — natural, professional or glamorous.

Studies showed that upon a quick glance, the faces with makeup were perceived to be more attractive. However, when examining the photos for longer periods, the glamorous makeup wearers were thought to be less trustworthy. [ABC News]

So what do you think? Does the amount of makeup a person wears affect your perception of them? What is the appropriate amount of makeup to wear?

Mumzworld – More than just mums

I’m a big, Big, BIG fan of online shopping. I miss the ease of online shopping found in the US/UK. My Aramex Shop’n’Ship account has been a godsend, but I do wish there were more local choices.

In recent times, e-commerce has picked up significantly in Dubai with both new players and big hitters setting up online portals (I highly recommend JadoPado for your Apple/Blackberry/gadget needs), but we still lack a powerhouse like Amazon in the region. That is why I was extremly excited to hear about Mumzworld.

Mumzworld calls itself the Middle East’s largest online shopping site for Everything Mother, Baby and Child. They currently have over 18,000 products and all the leading brands including Lego, Crayola, Barbie, and Mattel. Moreover, you get delivery within 2-3 days in the UAE and free delivery for all orders over 200 AED. Outside of the UAE? No worries, they promise to delivery within 7-10 days regionally as well.

So what can the average fashionista/beauty addict/Bollywood lover buy from Mumzworld? A lot! For starters they carry 2 amazing jewelery lines: Lovelinks and Sia Select. I purchased a beautiful necklace+earring set from Sia Select pre-Mumzworld but had to unfortunately coordinate cash payment and delivery myself. Thankfully that is all taken care via Mumzworld now.

They also carry a wide selection of beads, charms, necklaces and bracelets from Lovelinks.  They currently have a special deal going on where proceeds go to Breast Cancer Awareness, so support a great cause!

I couldn’t help buying the world edition of Monopoly last week. As a child, my parents always bought me “intellectual” games such as cardboard puzzles or mindbenders, but I decided to splurge in a classic board game.

Even if you aren’t a Mum, you can find plenty of things to keep your credit card busy. So check out the region’s newest shopping site and tell them Dollz sent you! You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter.

Disclaimer: I work with the Mumzworld team, so this post is written with a little bit of bias. Just a little🙂
