Did someone order room service?

One of the best things about staying in a hotel is the fuss-free room service that you can enjoy in your fluffy dressing gown and slippers, however not many resorts run in-room dining offers. That was until Wyndham Dubai Marina came along. Not only does their staycation package start from just Dhs 230 (till June 5) you will also receive a 20% discount on in-room dining. Winner.

And while you’re in your room…

Why not take advantage of the hotel’s WiFi and order yourself a little something from the Saint Laurent summer collection? Net-A-Porter launched a capsule with the French Maison that nods to the various decades and timeless icons, boyish silhouettes and feminine confidence. Throughout, a heritage music note print appears on styles of clothing that track the 60s through the 90s.

Keep your cool

In the spirit of Ramadan, UAE’s homegrown mochi ice cream brand M’OISHÎ unveiled six new flavours inspired by traditional Middle Eastern delicacies – Qamar El Deen, Umm Ali, Vimto, Saffron, Rose and Arabic Coffee. Now that’s a unique cone.

Brunch in the sky

Burj Al Arab may have just introduced our new favourite brunch haunt if not for the food (which sounds spectacular) then for the view alone. Aptly named Le Grand Petit Déjeuner, French for “The Grand Breakfast”, this elegant brunch merges a seasonal menu with magnificent vistas and service. We will have the“La Pousse en Claire” oysters, paired with Brittany Razor Clams and cold Alaskan and Aleutian Islands King Crab please. Every Friday 10am – 3.30pm, 27th Floor, Dhs 695.

You’ll struggle to meet a fashion editor who isn’t a little bit obsessed with Nanushka. It is one of the few brands that can make vegan leather look better than the real thing and now it has dropped capsule collection on mytheresa.com inspired by a re-interpretation of a city safari wardrobe with shades of honey, nude-rose and black in solid and snakeskin finishes. Our eyes are firmly on the the nude balloon-sleeved blouse.
