A brush with beauty - on the go

Five objects of desire that we thought we should pick up/try out right away - in case stores run out of them!

Tools on Tour by Lottie London is the perfect travel companion for the woman who needs to look put together at all times: the compact brush set contains a mini brow brush, smudger brush, eyeshadow brush and powder brush. This and a bunch of makeup is all one needs to look like a million bucks - even while fighting jet lag. Best part? This is a truly affordable chic set!

Where's the genie in this bottle?
They say a Bkr bottle changes the way you hydrate yourself - forever! That's quite a power punch in a bottle. It looks so hopelessly lovable that, for once, you never have to be reminded to tank up. Practical tip: this has a firm handle you will never have trouble keeping in place. Comes in a bunch of cute colours and designs.      
Available at:  Pôlette Concept Store, City Walk, Dubai.
Price: Dh110

Chest of drawers that's a treasure!
I love furniture that looks this artistic - comes with its own pops of colours and patterns (Arabic-styled). And the woody hold-together gives it such a classy feel! I'm wondering what all can be crammed into the drawers and the answers are easy enough: 'secret' notebooks and all those knick-knacks that I don't seem to find a resting place for. The chest top can have a flower vase (fresh florals please!) but otherwise be left minimalist.... who needs more flourishes?

A shoe story to slip your feet into
Sandals, laces and an earthy tone. Enough to make me sit up and take note. These sandals, that promise to make your feet breathe easy, are perfect for summers, and the elongated laces look stunning (but watch out, don't walk around ineptly in them - you may just trip inelegantly!). The no-heel pact means walking will be a breeze. My next pair of mall crunchers and brunching buddies.

Charmed by the charms
Pandora is one of my all-time fave brands. I have so many of their charms - my existing silver bracelet (and, by extension, my wrist) cannot get enough of them. The new collection has some winners - also loving the double-layered leather bracelets in pink and blue - and I need to get at least a couple to keep my collection updated.

Sushmita, who came to Dubai in September 2008 on a whim and swore to leave in a year's time (but then obviously didn't), edits wknd., the KT lifestyle mag, and writes the Freewheeling column on the Oped page every Friday. Before joining Khaleej Times, she'd worked for papers like Hindustan Times and Business Standard in New Delhi, and a now-defunct news magazine called Sunday in Calcutta. She likes meeting people, making friends, and Facebooking. And even though she can be spotted hanging out in Dubai's 'new town', she harbours a secret crush on the old quarters, and loves being 'ghetto-ised' in Bur Dubai where she is currently domiciled.
