Our Spa Rocks, with a 2nd Review This Month
15/09/2017 - Hungry for Halaal, by StyleXplora: Fashion Hijab Makeup Lifesyle
Ayesha Rajah owner of the Urban Bliss Spa My New Beginning and A&I importers gave her insider tips on how to age gracefully from your 30s-60s, best treatments and products to maintain radiant skin and how she broke into the spa and beauty industry
When I got to the venue, it was buzzing!. Outside the spa, at the entrance, were women eagerly waiting for their eyebrows to be done by the Kenosis beauty crew. They were taking full advantage of the complimentary service offered to all guests in attendance.
There was also a pop up stall with the cutest kiddies garment by Trendy kids. Trendy kids stocks affordable branded and unique wear for kids from birth to 14 years. On entering the spa, I got to browse the Pop Vintage rail set up in the reception area. They sell on trend, high street fashion. If you have a fetish for this season’s pearls, embroidery, frills and sleeve details, you will love their latest catalogue
Also on deck were Zaynah modest apparel and KhaleesFabrics. Zaynah is an on trend brand created by my beautiful friend Aadilah Tootlah. Zaynah is well known for their classy draped garments ranging from luxe robes, throws and kimonos to kaftans, dresses, scarves and more.
Btw, I’m after those crushed fabric scarves …you should check those out too. Khalees fabrics is well known in the industry. Their signature scarves featured on the runways of SA Fashion week and at the HFWSA. Keep your eyes peeled for the jaw dropping looks my sweet friend Tasneem Ismail created at the HFWSA. Her scarves are unique and I absolutely adore my signature Khalees scarf. Click here to see her styling it at the Womens day event…Tasneem in action.
Those who know me well, know that I may not look like it…but I really love my food. Get me to an event, feed me well and I’m a happy chappy! UrbanBliss always goes the extra mile when it comes to offering a complete service and the Women’s Day event was no exception.
First came out koeksisters and samoosas from The Industry Bakery… “Oh my word….this is soo good!” These were the words that dropped from my mouth when I bit into one of those koeksisters. Ask Aadilah Tootlah, she was there with me. They were honestly the best koeksisters I had tasted in years. I was transported to my childhood trips in Cape Town, a kid trying her very first, genuine homemade, recipe passed from generation to generation, koeksister. It was that awesome! Don’t take my word for it, hit the industry bakery when you can and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
Then came out these gorgeously presented finger foods. There were trays of chicken skewers, chicken wraps and haute bunny chows. I was salivating at that point, but practiced restraint until everyone else would eat.
I had to leave early and was sorely disappointed for missing out, and being so disciplined. However, you don’t have to….get in touch with I cater for you by Radia Bhyat for complete halaal catering.
As if that was not enough, there were cakes and bakes from a new establishment called The Bake Factory. Mouthwatering and in large servings, I would have loved to have tried what Andrea the manager at the spa, described as “so good I couldn’t choose between them.”
If you ever plan to have an event, consider UrbanBliss as they also provide complete halaal catering and impeccable service with a smile.
