Makeovers are a great way to boost your mood but it doesn’t necessarily have to be limited to your closet or seeing the numbers on the scale go down (or up). All it takes is to spruce up the surroundings, be it at home or the office, to alter your mindset.

Thankfully, this doesn’t have to be a pricey affair as there are plenty of pocket-friendly spots here in Dubai where you can purchase a great work of art to liven up the atmosphere.
