How would you describe your style?

That’s a hard one as my style changes with my mood. I would say I try to be trendy while remaining sophisticated.

What’s your favorite store in Dubai

Like most women, I have an affinity for handbags and MCM is one of my favourite brands. For clothes I would have to say Harvey Nichols. For daily wear I love Zara as it always with the latest trends, but not too overpriced.

Name the last thing u bought and when?

A black and white checked blazer Zara.

Does Dubai have style?

I think Dubai has all the ingredients to become a style capital, but unfortunately a lot of people here fail to trap brands and think that  if it costs allot it’s going to look good.

What are your style pet peeves ?

I hate it when you see people with matching shoes, bags and belts all from the same brand, trying to show how much money they have spent.

What’s your funniest faux pass?

Trying to squeeze into clothes that clearly do not fit me anymore. Definitely not a good idea when you plan to go out dancing and you hear the ‘riiiiiiiip’ on the dance floor.

Sahar Davodi of H2O Pure Blue

Sahar Davodi is the founder and managing partner of H2O Pure Blue, a business she has been running for four years. She says that, coming from an Iranian family she was always taught that a woman needs to be intelligent, hardworking and should always be able to take care of herself.

She elaborates, “Often time’s women, especially Muslim women, are stereotyped as week and submissive. If you were to ask someone to describe me, those are the last two words that would come to mind. Today, more women are empowering themselves and are dependent on men to support them financially. There is an ever growing number of women running companies all over the world weather they are family owned or Forune500. Although we are not a multinational conglomerate, I would still like to think I am one of them. As 99% of my professional life has been spent in Dubai, I have never faced any issues regarding my religion and sometimes it is an added value that we are in a Muslim country. Even though running your own business is a 24/7 job we keep weekends free for unwinding with friends and nice dinners. We especially like going for movies for what we call our ‘popcorn past times’. Additionally I do love Bikram yoga so try and fit a class whenever we can. Women are the foundation of society, wherever you are in the world and it is your duty to be stewards in a positive change in whatever way we can”.

Tap water can contain range of contaminants from different sources such as chlorine lead and undesirable salts. With H2o Pure Blue Shower Purifier, you can have shower water that is free from these undesirable elements.

What is involved?

Ordinary shower filters use only carbon filtration, which, to be effective have to be big enough to handle the volume of water passing through the shower filter. On  the other hand KDF is a finely granulated that removes chlorine, iron, salts, sediments and other damaging minerals.

What are the results  ?

By effectively removing 98% chlorine from tap water Pure Blue Purifier helps improve dry and sensitive skin reducing skin rashes, wrinkles and blotches, dry scalp, thinning hair and dandruff. It can also help reduce respiratory problems such as asthma and bronchitis caused by chlorine inhalation.

How much?

Claiming to reduce chlorine in the shower water by 98 percent, improve dry skin and hair, remove water soluble lead, mercury, nickel and chromium, plus reduce bacterial and scale, this shower filter makes some big promises. It was very easy to install, and after four days a difference was noted in skin and hair, specifically hair was shinier and softer, with fewer breakages, while skin felt smoother. Of course, tap water quality depends on the age and condition of your water tank, and living in an older villa ours probably isn’t in great nick, so if you’re in a newer apartment building the results might not be so dramatic. If you’re concerned about dry hair from the UAE’s hard water it’s well worth a try.
