One Coast Magazine July - August 2016

We are excited to bring our readers another breathtaking One Coast issue. With this in mind, we traveled to Paris to meet the Saudi-born haute couture jewelry designer Nourah Al Faisal, owner of the new popular brand “Nuun”. Her beautiful creations have grabbed the global jewelry seekers’ attention in a big way, bringing in more high-profile clientele. While living in luxury has become an indispensable part of our existence, we also need to take care of our wellbeing. Not to worry as we have a great piece on how you can keep yourself healthy in our wellness section where we touch upon the benefits of VitaDrips.

Then, there are other interesting features such as our tête-à-tête with Simon James and Kae Wattana, owners of Samui Regatta- the international yachting event, BMW R5 Hommage bringing real motorcycling legacy back to life and the Beach Republic resort’s splendor which will definitely engulf your senses.

Other cool surprises in store for you are awesome collections from Burberry, Salvatore Ferragamo, amazing winter sports available in Dubai and a closer look at the wonders in Jordan.

We hope you have as much enjoyment reading as we have had putting this exciting magazine together!


Salvatore Ferragamo

Salvatore Ferragamo SS16 collection is absolutely timeless plus modern all the way too.

Perfectly Imperfect

There are some things we could argue that are simply perfect. A sunset is perfect or snuggled around a cosy fire, while looking up at the night sky, mesmerised by the beauty of the vast, expansive universe is perfect. You wouldn’t sit there and think to yourself, “I wish I could change the orange hues of that sunset” or “the night sky would look more beautiful with far less stars.” These experiences are perfectly perfect.

Beating The Heat

With the mercury levels rising above 40°C and no sign of it dropping in the recent future, most people prefer hibernating indoors during the summer months with air-conditioners on full blast, rather than getting burnt under the merciless rays of the UAE sun. It’s certainly not everyone’s cup of tea basking on Jumeirah Beach, enjoying amusement parks or picnicking under palm trees. Continue reading

Flight Of Fancy With Seawings

With one of the most recognisable skylines on the planet, Dubai is a tourism favourite on social media for instagrammable selfiehotspots at places like Burj Khalifa and Palm Jumeirah. Though you’re sure of a wow factor from the ground, it doesn’t give you the whole picture. For a new perspective, perhaps literally, on the meteoric rise of a former Bedouin village into one of the world’s fastest growing economies, nothing guarantees likes better than seeing the sites from a whole other level, the sky.

Hands Across The Water

“What happens when the kids turn 18?”
“For those that want to go to university we fund that stage of their life and for those who are looking for a trade or employment we support them as well”. It’s a common question that is asked of us and fair enough. The view of charity and the expectations of how they operate is changing and donors, supporters or even passive observers have a view around how charities should be run and how their dollars should be utilised.
