We've long been fans of blogging duo Reem and Natalya Kanj. The sisters, who run the blog Five Five Fabulous, have been named our Fashion Bloggers of the Week and Reem was one of our School of Grazia 'Introduction to Blogging' masterclass panelists. She launched FFF, which features a mix of personal style, creative collaborations and fashion industry insights, in 2009 and until recently the stylish sisters divided their time between Dubai and UK. Now Natalya has moved to Dubai for work, but how will the siblings cope with living in different countries? And more importantly what's on their fashion radar this week? Time for a diary in pictures!

"So this week was a little crazy, unfortunately I missed a couple of (amazing) events but I have been glued to my desk organising a ton of work for the blog and synchronising skype dates with Natalya.
1. Maison Martin Margiela Clutch
I started off my week on a high! I was meeting a friend at Selfridges, the same day the sale started (which believe it or not I hadn't even realised!) I entered through the accessories section and there I spotted it, in all it's cherry, leather glory. A Maison Martin Margiela clutch with a phenomenal discount that led me to the cashier so quickly it became the mother of all impulse buys! I love starting the day off with a good purchase.
There's nothing better then filling yourself up on something super healthy during the day, this quick and easy rocket and tomato salad was perfect to recharge my batteries.
3. Birthday cake
It's definitely no secret that I'm an avid baker, any opportunity there is to whip something up in my Kenwood mixer, I will take, so when one of my best friends celebrated her birthday recently, I baked her up a little something special. Chocolate cake with glitter and everything!
4. Rihanna concert
Last week I got a lovely surprise email from a friend at RocNation who told me she had some VIP tickets for me and a few of my girls for Rihanna's Sunday night gig at Twickenham stadium. It feels like a lifetime ago that I was on the 777 Tour with Rihanna and her team so I instantly took up the opportunity to go, and it being so last minute made it even more fun.
5. Nike x Liberty
I love it when I get to wear something that I participated in creating, and when the Liberty print Nike's that I designed at the ID studio in Nike Town came through the post yesterday morning I was ecstatic because they turned out beautiful! Almost too pretty to wear no?

This week has been another busy one but I've had so much fun. I'm still adjusting to life in 40 degree weather. It's really not as fabulous as it sounds, the humidity can be quite unbearable.
1. Elevator shot in white shirt
I had a fabulous dinner to attend and had one of those dreaded 'I have nothing to wear' moments, so in the end I opted for a simple white shirt from Zara. You can always rely on a trusty white shirt to chic up any look.
2. Shake Shack
I've heard so many people rave on about how amazing the burgers are at Shake Shack, I first came across it in New York but never had the time to indulge. I decided to try it for the first time on my cheat day so now I can finally say I know why everyone loves it so much! Worth every calorie!
3. Me and palm tree artwork
I had a look at the art in The Pavillion in downtown Dubai, I fell in love with this huge piece (I'm slightly obsessed with palm trees). Doesn't it just make you want to be stranded on an island?
After a busy week I decided to have some 'me' time so I went for my weekly manicure at one of my favourite salons! This week I opted for Snow White by Tito. I'm so happy I now live in a country with the option to rock an all year round tan because white nails really look great against one!
I headed over to The Jetty lounge to relax and hang out with my friends, I had to capture this gorgeous sunset, isn't it beautiful? I'm a sucker for a good sunset!
Until next week, Stay Fabulous!
