    Kylie Jenner debuts a new hair transformation ahead of her birthday

    Kylie Jenner changes her hair like we change our T-shirts, but we’re always here to see a new transformation from the makeup mogul.
    For the majority of quarantine, the reality star has been sporting super long brown locks, with a few subtle blonde highlights.

    However, Jenner has gone through a bit of a post-lockdown hair rejig which she showed off at some early birthday celebrations with her best friends.
    Posting on her Instagram story, Jenner showcased her new short bob – a hairstyle which she has rocked many times before – which is a drastic change from the long hair she had up until recently.

    It’s clear that ahead of her 23rd birthday – which is today, August 10 – Jenner felt like it was time for a change, but it wouldn’t surprise us ahead of her official birthday bash she shows off another transformation.
    And yes, it looks like the soon-to-be 23-year-old is set to throw a stellar party at her new Dhs136 million mansion in Los Angeles, which she moved into during lockdown.
    Giving her fans a sneak peek, Jenner showed off a big “Happy Birthday Kylie” sign, which we’re guessing will just be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to decorations.

    We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled on Instagram to get any sneak peek of the action we can.

    Saudi Arabia’s King Salman sends three planes worth of aid to Lebanon

    In the wake of the devastation left by the explosion in Beirut, many countries have come to Lebanon’s aid in a time of crisis.
    This includes the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which sent out urgent humanitarian aid to the country per orders from King Salman, according to the country’s state news agency the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

    The catastrophic blast in the Lebanese capital has killed at least 135 people and left around 4,000 people injured. According to Governor of Beirut, 300,000 people have been left homeless and that up to 85 per cent of grain stocks in Lebanon have been destroyed.
    So far, three planes filled with supplies have been sent to Lebanon from Saudi Arabia.

    According to SPA, the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSRelief) has loaded planes with ventilators, hospital equipment, medicine, food, mattresses, blankets, tents and more. This equates to an estimated 200 tonnes of aid from the Kingdom.
    Following the blast, Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement stating their “sincerest condolences” to those affected by the blast.
    “The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is watching with grave concern the aftermath of the explosion that occurred in the port of Beirut today, which resulted in deaths and injuries,” the Ministry’s statement said. “We express our sincerest condolences and sympathies to the families of the victims and the injured.
    “We ask God to have mercy on those who died in this tragic event, to grant those injured a speedy recovery, and to protect Lebanon from all harm. We affirm the Kingdom’s full support and solidarity with the brotherly people of Lebanon.”

    Dubai shisha cafes shut down for ignoring precautionary COVID-19 rules

    As many activities and establishments continue to open in Dubai, we are all regularly reminded there are precautionary measures in place to continue to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

    Shisha cafes were recently permitted to begin to open again, but during checks conducted over the weekend, some have been fined and even shut down due to flouting the rules which are in place.
    According to the Khaleej Times, the Dubai Municipality conducted over 1,200 checks, of which 88 per cent were in compliance with rules.
    However, some 133 shisha cafes in the emirate were found to be violating precautionary measures which resulted in fines and shutdowns.
    Violations included lack of social distancing, sharing of shisha between customers and continuing to use multiple-use pipes and not single-use ones.
    A little over three weeks ago, shisha cafes across Dubai were permitted to open after being closed since March 12 due to the pandemic.
    With anything that has recently reopened, there have been stringent rules in place to ensure the virus is kept at bay, and there are fines and other repercussions in place for those found not following guidelines.

    Who is Sean Sagar?
    Sean is a 30-year-old actor who was born and raised in the borough of Newham in London.
    He has popped up in some noteworthy TV shows and movies in recent years.
    Most notably he has had a regular role alongside Michelle Keegan in the BBC’s Our Girl series, which follows a working-class woman who joins the British Army.
    Sean first appears in season 2 as Private Monk and, unlike many of his co-stars, survived being killed off.

    He also appeared in the original Top Boy on Channel 4, playing the minor character Tareek.
    Other high-profile roles included his role in 2019’s gang thriller Blue Story and a part in film The Gentleman which came out in the same year.
    He can also be seen in in TV shows like Sky One sitcom Trollied and BBC’s long-running hospital drama Casualty.
    As if that all wasn’t enough for the young actor, Sean has also played a leading role on BBC Three comedy Just A Couple.

    The rising star has also ventured outside the acting studio and moonlights as a model for Milk Model Management.
    Despite his list of career achievements and growing reputation, he probably isn’t even the most famous member of his family, however.
    That title goes to his older brother Nick, 32, who has also had a long acting career, including appearing alongside High School Musical’s Vanessa Hudgens in The Princess Switch.

    How long has he been dating Jesy Nelson?
    Reports suggest that they grew closer quite quickly after Jesy’s break-up with Love Island’s Chris Hughes back in April, a fact that left Chris “gutted”, according to pals.
    Despite lockdown getting in the way, the pair are believed to have grown quite close during the months when the pandemic left the country reeling.
    Since Britain opened up again, the couple have been pictured out together on multiple occasions, including when they were seen fairly close together on a date night back in July.
    Earlier in the month, the actor was also spotted sneaking out of her Essex pad in exclusive snaps revealed by the Sun on Sunday.
    The relationship clearly hasn’t cooled yet either, with the couple spotted today enjoying a modest holiday in Cornwall.

    This Dubai hotel is now offering in-room COVID-19 tests

    Until there’s a confirmed vaccine that works to fight coronavirus, it appears the way forward in order to travel is to undergo a COVID-19 test.
    With Dubai having opened up its borders, visitors are required to undergo testing in order to travel.

    So, to make it as easy as possible for their guests, one luxury hotel based in the Dubai International Financial Centre has announced it will now be offering in-room COVID-19 tests.
    Having partnered with the Burjeel Hospital, the Waldorf Astoria hotel in DIFC is now able to give guests the option of undergoing a test from their hotel room.

    The service can be accessed through guests’ personal concierge, which is a service offered by the luxury hotel. While it’s most likely guests would book it to use the spa or making dinner reservations, there’s now the option to book a COVID-19 test.
    The test – which will cost guests Dhs250 – will be performed by certified medical staff from the Burjeel Hosptial. The results will then be provided to guests within 24 hours of undergoing the examination.
    Just yesterday, CROSSROADS Maldives – a multi-island destination in the Indian Ocean – announced two of its fabulous resorts were back up and running, and it has also introduced PCR exit screening without having to travel out of the resorts and visit a testing facility.
