As we wrap up this week, the hard-working, slightly frazzled Emirates Woman team is wrapping up the first December special edition issue that is definitely one of the hottest of the year. This weekend we’ll be putting deadlines behind us, putting on a pair of heels and celebrating like a starlet…



Who doesn’t love Jennifer Lawrence? This self-depreciating Oscar winner has taken Hollywood by storm purely by just being her quirky, non-filtering self. That said, she is pretty good at pretending to be other people too. We can’t wait to see her reprise her role as Katniss Everdeen in Catching Fire, the second installment in the Hunger Games trilogy. Will she survive? Will she fall for Peeta? But most importantly, what will she wear?!

Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens this weekend at all good cinemas.



While we can only fantasise about being a movie star and travelling the world’s most glamorous cities, we can console ourselves by tasting our way around the world at Aquara’s World Tapas and Beverage Brunch. Enjoy delicately-sized morsels of flavour accompanied by expertly mixed refreshments while looking over the marina. Each month will feature a new region to explore – an excellent reason to keep going back!

We can live in denial no longer. It is time to face the music. It’s one of the year’s biggest gift shopping seasons and it’s time to get in there and make some tough shopping decisions to spoil our loved ones. This week we spied these ultra-slick, Stark-designed wireless Parrot Zik headphones. But remember, as awesome as this gift is, they are useless without giving something equally fashionable to listen to. We recommend Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP. It’s no coincidence that there’s the so-hot-right-now radio hit Applause on there…
