Dubai : How to Get to The Top of The World (Burj Khalifa)

(by : Rosye Beadle)

It was the 2nd time I was on the top of the world, Burj Khalifa. Actually it happened last year, however just this time I decided to share on my website.

What is Burj Khalifa? at the moment Burj Khalifa is the tallest tower in the world. It reaches 828 meters (2,722 ft) heights, 830 meters (2,717 ft) heights to tip.

Where is Burj Khalifa? it is located at 1 Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Blvd – Dubai, United Arab Emirates

How to go to Burj Khalifa? either you can go by taxi, tour bus or Metro.

For the first visit, it might be a bit confuse to find the entrance from outside. According to my experience, the much easier way to reach the entrance is you go inside the Dubai Mall (main entrance). Anyway, the 2nd time I went there it was on June so it was hotter than usual and so dusty. However it did not reduce my intention getting another pictures from up there.

This is the interesting view from 160th floor that I captured. I set the zoom on to get the clearer view of Dubai fountain.

Bali : Eat Pray Love Beach (Padang Padang)

(by : Rosye Beadle)

“..with a very low natural light, A slight drop of water and the smell of moss added to the dramatic cave situation”.

Last year a friend of mine said she wants to ‘buy’ the perfect sun on beach that she can hardly get in the country where she stays. So she and I decided to visit Bali. There is no doubt one of the most attractive spots in Bali are the beaches. I have visited Bali three times and I never missed the beaches. During the holidays the beaches are normally crowded. I have heard from my friend there’s a less crowd beach, it is called Padang Padang beach or Labuan Sait beach. It is located in Pecatu, south Kuta, Bali. A 30-40 minute drive from I Gusti Ngurah Rai international airport.

I didn’t realize Padang Padang beach was one of the Eat Pray Love film location starring Julia Roberts. In that film Julia was searching for peace of life and the meaning of love. Aren’t that sound very positive?

We were welcomed by solid stairs galore just after Padang Padang gate. a Couple of monkeys were eating on stairs (watch your belongings). It was a good start! Then the staircase went down deeper. Oh, this is an adventure part for me : I had to enter a narrow cave, then even more narrow that only fit to one person with a very low natural light inside. A slight drop of water  and the smell of moss added to the dramatic cave situation. I was quite sure I wasn’t in Scooby doo scene. It was a little bit spooky but (of course) so natural. I questioned myself : “how deep is the cave? Are there more monkeys inside? Are there bats? snakes?”

Good news! There were no snakes or bats inside, only several monkeys hanging around in the trees outside the cave. Though I was expecting a couple of bats 🙂 I really like that crazy cave. It was a quite deep cliff anyway.

The white-sand beach was quiet atmosphere and crystal clear waters made me relax after a long time to swim and snorkeling here. I saw 5-6 surfers enjoyed the waves. Some part of the beach looks virgin and has very rough rocks that I could walk on carefully. This beach is not too big, also has several outdoor showers, has coconut & snacks sellers.

Padang Padang was a hidden beach, however it’s getting popular. This beach is different, cheap and a well worth to visit.

Strolling Around Montmartre Paris

(by Rosye Beadle)

Montmartre, a 130 meters (427 feet) hill, is located in north Paris. It’s one of the historic district. The word Montmartre is translated to mean “mountain of the martyr” and was derived from the martyrdom of Saint Denis – the bishop of Paris. It is the centre of art, which actually during the mid to late 1800s, artists also began calling Montmartre home. Many artists worked and had studio in here, such as Salvador Dali, Claude Monet, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh, Renoir and Picasso. So, you can imagine how artistic this place.

Beside the sea of arts, what I like about Montmartre is it has retained much of its character and village-like charm.

The best way to enjoy Montmartre is by walking, so you won’t miss the interesting spots. You can’t get less exercise to be here. Fun and healthy at the same time 🙂

Will I come back to visit this place? yes

1.Highligt the browbones with the lightest eyeshadow (no.1)

2.As a transition colour, apply the grayish-brown eyeshadow on your creases with fluffy brush in back and forth motions. This is optional, you can either apply the light brown or peach matte eyeshadow that you have, instead of this one so your crease won’t look too much. I also use the tape to create the corner angle look.

3.Apply the brown colour on the outer corner of your eyes with the circle motions using fluffy brush as well.

4.Tap no.4 colour on middle part of your eyelids.

5.Apply the dark brown colour on outer corner of your eyes using the small eyeshadow brush then blend it. It meant to create line illusion /contour on the outer corner of your eyes.

6.Add the white-champagne colour on inner corner of your eyes to create a fresh eyes look.

To complete the look, create the winged eyeshadow with your favorite eyeliner and add your matte brown colour eyeshadow on your lower lash-line.

If you have any comments, please leave it below

Cheers..

UAE : Inside The Burj Al Arab

(by : Rosye Beadle)

Last February (2015) I had a chance to attend a fashion show event at the first 7s stars hotel, The Burj Al Arab in Dubai. It is said that Burj Al Arab is the world’s most luxurious hotel. Several times I had events close to this hotel and I would not miss to take picture of the hotel from a different angle. Finally I decided to overcome my curiosity for how interesting this 1053 foot high building from inside.

The building is located in a man-made island, Jumeirah. I had to cross a white bridge to enter the hotel. Just after I entered the hotel lobby, I was completely sure that I wouldn’t be disappointed as my eyes were indulged by the interesting modern architecture. It’s so unique and how luxurious? It was answered by the real gold plated interiors.

After I browsed at first floor, I went to the second floor. There were restaurants, luxury boutiques and more gold things to be captured with my little camera. Then I moved to upper floor that was Al Falak ballroom. The design is inspired by the 18th century Vienna opera house style. One word, Stunning!

A Guide to Living in Dubai

(by : Rosye Beadle)

Hi readers,

This is the second year I have resided in Dubai. I would like to share some tips of living in Dubai. If any of you plan to stay in Dubai, these informations might help you to find loads about the city.

Transportation, Dubai has Metro which can be reached from stations at many locations. Another moda transportations are bus, taxi and the new one is called Dubai tram. Just get a Nol card at any Metro station for AED20 as a start, it is also used to pay the bus and tram. Try a traditional boat to across the creek with AED1 only.

Shopping, there are many shopping centres in Dubai. It is one of the fashion hub in the world. One of them is Dubai mall which lies next to Burj Khalifa. Many minimarkets are available in residence areas. Several local online shopping can be found in Dubai, some of them offers cheaper price than in store, some offers just the same price as in store. It is one of interesting way to shop, but need to be careful before purchase, read  their policies carefully and check the company credibility. Sometimes the idea of what they call costumer service or helpdesk is not really a help. Waiting for the shopping discount festival is a trick to get cheaper goods in stores, usually during January.

www.notesofdesertrosestyle.com

How to dress, what you need is a summer clothing to wear. Sometimes a scarf or a light jacket is needed when walking around in a mall especially in the evening. The Emiratis wear national dress, they are Abaya (for women) and Khandura (for men). In many areas you can find signs to dress appropriately as the rule is to cover your shoulders and knees.

Food, At the beginning I thought it would be difficult for me to find food that could indulge my tongue and stomach. Surprisingly various international food can be found easily in Dubai, such as haute cuisine,fast food, and home-made food. Lately I am in love with Arabian food 🙂  So in my experience there is no issue to get delicious food in Dubai. If you like to drink alcohol, it is available in hotels and bars. It can not be found easily at many places. There are lots of restaurants offer discount for friday brunch.

Pray community, It is not difficult to find the pray community , such as for Christian, Hindu or Buddha in Dubai. Usually the places can be found through website.

Weather, the hottest climate in Dubai is during August. It could reach 51 degree celsius. Often people are advised to refrain from outdoor activities during this month.  October to May are the best time to walk around and explore the city.

Small thing but important, have a sunglasses, hat, sunblock.

Review Sariayu Eyeshadow Pallet 25

(by Rosye Beadle)

Hello beauty lovers,

Kali ini saya menulis review tentang salah satu eyeshadow brand lokal yaitu Sariayu Eyeshadow pallet 25. Kebetulan saya menyukai warna-warna cerah termasuk untuk eyeshadow. Tidak dipungkiri tersedia banyak sekali eyeshadow menarik di pasaran, tetapi saya pikir mengapa tidak mencoba eyeshadow yang satu ini. So, eyeshadow ini saya beli sendiri di toko kosmetik jadi bukan dari sponsor. Btw, total sudah 3 bulan terakhir saya gunakan eyeshadow ini.

  1. Warna,  terdiri dari 25 warna yang saya sebut warna-warna berani.
  2. Packaging, terbuat dari karton tebal yang cukup kokoh melindungi isinya dan dilengkapi dengan dua aplikator eyeshadow. Setiap keping eyeshadow menempel kuat di landasan pallet. Penahan tutup terbuat dari pita kecil.
  3. Eyeshadow, berbentuk bubuk padat dan shimery
  4. Harga, saya beli dengan harga rp 400.000,- (2017)

Warna yang paling sering saya gunakan selain coklat, hitam dan putih, yaitu biru, gold, pink, hijau, maroon dan merah. Cukup banyak ya? Ini tentunya kalau saya mau bermain warna untuk fashion make up. Untuk make up sehari-hari biasanya saya hanya memakai warna coklat, hitam dan medium pink. Selain sebagai eyeshadow saya terkadang gunakan warna oranye dan gold sebagai blush on. Ini lagi lagi untuk fashion make up. Warna coklat bisa juga digunakan untuk alis.

Eyeshadow cukup tahan lama setelah diaplikasikan, setidaknya tahan 2-3 jam tanpa touch up. Untuk tampilan warna tegas dibutuhkan pemulasan setidaknya 2 kali jika tanpa primer eyeshadow. Akan lebih baik jika memakai primer eyeshadow sebelum mengaplikasi eyeshadow ini sehingga menempel lebih lama dan warna di kelopak mata lebih cetar.

Kekurangan produk ini yaitu : Packagingnya. Saya suka dengan bahan kartonnya yang ringan (tidak memberatkan tas), namun akan lebih praktis jika penahan penutup pallet lebih kuat daripada sekadar pita kecil saja.   Jika ingin kotak pallet tetap terbuka saat digunakan, maka harus tetap dipegang atau ditutup buka berkali kali. Aplikator agak kasar teksturnya. Selain itu kelemahannya ada pada eyeshadownya itu sendiri.  Pada saat diaplikasikan serpihan produk yang bertaburan jatuh lumayan juga, sehingga dibawah kelopak mata perlu dicover atau ditaburi bedak untuk menghindari jatuhan eyeshadow yang menempel cukup kuat di kulit.

Bagi saya pribadi, saya sukai banyaknya variasi warna yang ada di pallet ini dan pigmented.

Akankah saya beli ulang produk ini? ya (untuk fashion make up)

Well readers, semoga review ini bermanfaat.

Salam Beauty
