For stressed female employees of Dubai’s financial district, help is now at hand. It comes in the form of the new SpaCordon in DIFC, which will offer a short but impressive menu featuring everything from classic aromatherapy massages to vegan mani-pedis. On the subject of nails, Dubai’s Sisters Beauty Lounge, ever a hub of experimentation when it comes to new nail trends (you may remember the innovative velvet manicure), is launching a new croc-embossed manicure for a strikingly reptilian effect.
Elsewhere, the search is under way for 10 deserving ladies to win a makeover in time for Christmas. Glambox.me, Jane Iredale and The Cure Beauty and Wellness Lounge have teamed up to launch the Glam Santa competition: if you have a friend who needs cheering up, why not nominate her? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Holiday 2012 Makeover’, with a few words explaining why they (or you!) deserve it. The deadline is Saturday December 8.
Finally this week, Illuminations Well-Being Centre in JLT is set to hold an open-house event on Wednesday December 19, with healing stalls, free seminars, chakra diagnosis, tarot and angel card readings, meditations, aura pictures and much more. Until next week, namaste.
