We’re officially in reset mode, so this weekend we’ll be sweating it out at sunset yoga, trying out Dubai’s latest (organic) meal delivery plan, and prepping for our holidays…


Sweating it out at sunset yoga

Yoga, Talise

A little end of the week unwinding is on the cards this evening, courtesy of a sunset yoga session at the Talise Spa, Madinat Jumeirah. The sessions take place every evening at 6.30pm and cater to all levels.

Talise Spa, Madinat Jumeirah, 6.30pm, Dhs80. Tel: (04) 3666818 or email mjtalise@jumeirah.com to book a spot.

Weekend Vibes


Organising our travel essentials

Institut Esthederm

We’re adding this Cellular Water Spray to the list of things we love about French skincare brand Institut Esthederm. Come holiday time it’s perfect for rebalancing your skin after cleansing or cooling down after a long day in the sun. In fact we’ll be using it before we’ve reached our destination, as a quick spritz is great for hydrating parched skin on a long flight. A multi-tasking beauty product if ever we met one.

Dhs130, available at leading  pharmacies.



Food forward planning 

Love Food

Vowing to eat healthily is one thing, actually sticking to it for any period of time is quite another. Who wants to be in their kitchen until 11pm on a Saturday prepping a week’s worth of nutritious packed lunches? We’ll be getting Love Food to take care of the boring stuff for us by delivering its fresh, organic breakfasts, lunches and dinners to our door. Love Food’s Vitality plan is low on sugar for those looking to shed a few pounds, Lifestyle is perfect for Paleo fans, and gym bunnies will love the protein-packed Power plan. We’re just afraid a week of grain-free apple pie pancakes and Korean short-ribs will put us off home cooking for life.



Diary Date

SATC the movie at Claw

Sex and the City

Here’s a terrifying thought: more than a decade has passed since Carrie finally got her happy ending in the last episode of SATC. We’ll be catching up with her, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte on Wednesday July 8 at Claw, which is screening SATC the movie in its newly unveiled Barn. We’ll be there to get lost in Carrie’s Big dramas once more, all while tucking into themed dishes and drinks. Cosmos all round then.

Claw, Souk Al Bahar, 8pm, Dhs300. To book e-mail lauren@clawbbq.com
