The weekend is here, and hopefully we’ll be waving goodbye to these dust storms and saying hello to some sunshine. From Ibiza-style parties to poolside deals and an epic new Thursday ladies’ night, here’s where you’ll find us.
Thursday August 2
Book yourself in for a facial
If this week’s dust storms have been wreaking havoc on your complexion, you should seriously consider checking out this brilliant deal at The Nova Clinic. For the month of August, when you book an Intraceuticals Oxygen Facial, Hollywood Facial or Skinceuticals Facial, you’ll get the second one free. Your skin will thank you for it (and so will your wallet).

Make the most of a poolside deal
The super stylish Address Boulevard has a fantastic Saturday deal for you and your BFF. Pay Dhs295 for two people, and you’ll get pool access, a platter of bites including sliders, flatbread, sushi and ceviche, and a pitcher of sangria. What better way to finish off the weekend?
