Movie premieres, fireworks, new eateries, pampering (on the cheap) and lots of shopping, it’s an eclectic weekend we have planned but at least it’s not boring… #WeekendVibes...
Hitting the iMax for Terminator action
He’s back! Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to the big screen for Terminator Genisys, the fifth chapter of the franchise. The battle between machines and man continues or as IMDB says: “John Connor sends Kyle Reese back in time to protect Sarah Connor, but when he arrives in 1984, nothing is as he expected it to be….” The film also stars Emilia Clarke – Daenerys Targaryen from Games of Thrones (you won’t recognise her). We will be catching the premiere at the i iMax to get the all the action.
Treating ourselves at the Huda Beauty vending machine
Ideal for style savvy girls on the go is the genius Huda Beauty vending machine, offering around the clock beauty solutions on the go. Why have we never had this before? Conveniently accessible during the day and night in Dubai and soon to be available in select locations across the world, the Huda Beauty Vending Machine is ideal for last minute gift purchases, or even a quick mini makeover on-the-go. The vending machine is currently located in Sunset Mall in Jumeriah. You will no doubt see us there purchasing some mink lashes…

A new Greek restaurant you say? We’re there! With two Greek team members at EW HQ we love trying new restaurants especially those serving authentic Mediterranean cuisine, which is why you will see us at the new Mythos Kouzina & Grill in Cluster P, JLT.
