Turning Fashion into Art Pieces with Maria Zheleznova

Fashion provides each one of us an avenue to express selves. Fashion designers express themselves through creating of pieces that change the face of style; fashion stylists use it toexpress their curative skills, while fashionistas use it to express their personalities.

One Dubai resident is however using fashion in a completely different way. Maria Zheleznova uses fashion to inspire her art.

“My art is about gut feeling, personality and energy. My fashion illustrations focus on the emotion of the subject which I depict through my choice of colors, strokes or even medium; ranging from pencil or pen to watercolorsfashion illustrations. Says Maria Zheleznova.

Maria has illustrated several UAE fashionistas in her growing collection of fashion art.

 

Two times a week, Maria Zheleznova also brings together a small group of first-time painters for a coffee and painting session; and for two hours, she guides them as theyimmerse themselves in the relaxing world of watercolor paintings.

“Everyone can paint; they just don’t know it yet.” is Maria’s Mantra.

“Watercolors offer a lot of room forimprovisation. They are bright and unpredictable making them the perfect medium to transmit emotions. When I paint I allow the colors to lead me and sometimes the final product surprises me as well.” She adds.

Standing for Length, Volume & Lift, LVL is the latest treatment trend that will give your lashes some
serious oomph, by lifting at the root to create the effect of a longer, thicker flutter. The treatment involves

Before I had the LVL treatment done, I had very short, straight eyelashes (not at all attractive)I can barely see it..

This treatment is a life and time saver for ladies like me , who want to wake up looking beautiful and save that extra minutes for curling/mascara & applying false lashes !!

Analyn technician from Tips & Toes(golden mile branch) did an amazing job
Session took around 45 minutes and I was so relaxed that nearly fall a sleep.

Absolutely love it, Now my own eyelashes are much longer, thicker , darker and curlier. & no longer have to worry about using mascara for my natural makeup looks
Tips & toes is one of my favorite salon in UAE .For nails, treatments and lash extensions.. I must say they are very professional & amazing..

I highly recommend LVL treatment if you want you own lashes to work for you !

So light and natural, simply brilliant that lasts up to 6-8 weeks

For the first 24 hours you’ve to be careful
And not allow the water to come in contact with lashes.

My experience with Cup Kiss Massage 


I’m usually up for any ancient adventure when it comes to trying new treatments at the spa/salon

What is CUP KISS MASSAGE ?
~Cupping massage is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

It’s no secret that massage can relax you and make you feel good mentally & of course physically. But massage has more benefits than you probably realize.

Benefits :
> Lower stress
> reduce cellulite 
> help relieve migraine
> helps with muscle pain ,inflammation & stiffness
> encouraging blood flow
> maintains younger looking skin 
> removes excess toxins and fluids ( to feel less bloated )
> and much more…………….

Cup kiss Massage can help you maintain flexibility by working the muscles, connective tissue, and by stimulating the production and retention of the natural lubricants..

It involves deep, full body massage that progresses from feet towards upper body and concentrates on the trigger points

I tried it out and Professional massage therapist did a great job working out all the knots in my back , neck and shoulders. Special silicone cups (for certain areas of the body) were placed on me to create suction.It was a firm enough medium type pressure that I felt tension being released without being in any pain/bruising.

I like a bit of firmness, so this was perfect for me. I was fully relaxed after my 90 minute session
*Don’t be afraid to tell your therapist if you’d like more or less pressure
I felt completely refreshed at my first visit , i love this place and the ambience because it makes me feel like I am on a luxurious staycation for few hours

A full spa menu including manicures, pedicures, facials and body treatments are also available.
If you had a long day then The Tips & toes cupkiss massage will set you up for an afternoon of relaxation.
I highly recommend this ancient massage at least once in a month to pamper your body & soul :*

Price: AED 275 for 90-minute

Review : GUERLAIN HAPPY ROSY GLOW SPRING MAKEUP COLLECTION 2017

Guerlain_Meteorites_Happy_Glow_spring_2017_makeup_collection1

Guerlain Happy Rosy Glow presents four limited edition pieces that are all about boosting a natural, rosy glow,
Everything  in this collection looks  pretty, Spring colors and the packaging is TDF !!

  • Meteorites Happy Glow Pearls

    Boost your radiance and your mood with Guerlain Meteorites Happy Glow Pearls, a limited edition collector’s item that celebrates 30 years of Meteorites.

    The ideal finishing touch to your makeup look, Meteorites Happy Glow Pearls offers your skin an ultra-natural finish with a supernatural glow. It works to balance the colour of your complexion whilst enhancing radiance, combining four different shades that give skin a luminous boost.

    The largest ‘Rainbow Glow’ pearls give skin an incandescent multicoloured shimmer, while the other three shades provide specific colour correcting benefits: champagne brightens and reflects light, mauve counteracts yellow tones, and pink refreshes the complexion with a touch of brightness.

    Swirl a large brush over the pearls and then apply to the high points of your face. For an all-over glow, buff over the entire complexion.

    My thoughts :
    The packaging is beautiful and the smell is wonderful.excellent for those who don’t want a “made up” face, just a luminous flush of color.

    *Keep in mind this is not a highlighter, it is not a setting powder, or a bronzer it is a radiance powder that leaves you well illuminated.
    no glaring glitter particles or powdery, cakey pigment buildup.

  • Meteorites Happy Glow Blush

    Light-Sculpting Compacted Pearls Of Powder:

    Radiate happiness with the Guerlain Meteorites Happy Glow Blush, a 2-in-1 blush and highlighter that brings incandescence to your complexion.

    Created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Guerlain’s iconic Meteorites, this limited edition collector’s item combines colour and radiance with the convenience of a pressed compact format for cheeks that flush with a youthful glow.

    The combination of three different pressed pearls in the Meteorites Happy Glow Blush include ‘Rainbow Glow’ pearls that deliver an ethereal multicoloured shimmer, pink pearls to add freshness to the complexion, and fuchsia pearls to revive your flush. Your complexion has never looked so radiant!

    Apply to the apples of your cheeks to create a happy glow.

    My Thoughts:
    This blush is super sheer and easy to apply.. It goes on light, just as it is supposed to. It has a nice shimmer with pinks The finish is beautiful and doesn’t look like powder on your face.

  • Météorites Brush
    Guerlain-2017-Happy-Glow-Collection-4

    Perfectly apply your Meteorites Pearls finishing powder with the Guerlain Meteorites Brush.
    Full, round and supple, the Meteorites Brush turns every application of powder into a moment of pleasure. The specifically designed brush head has longer, softer natural bristles which are designed to pick up the exact amount of powder needed and dress the skin in one celestial swish.
    The brush recalls some of the most beautiful objects from Guerlain, with bristles the shade of a delicate macaron and a shiny, pure white handle encircled with festoons,.

    My thoughts :
    The brush is high quality and looks super adorable ,  It is very soft and dense, I use it for all over powder or for blending my blush and contour Powder in to give it a natural look.
    Not a necessity, but a nice luxury to have. 😉
