  • Toddler play date in Dubai

    I have always wanted to be a figure skater.  When I’m on the ice, everything disappears for that time – its me, my feet and the cold air against my skin. I love it. I started skating when I was 12, skated every week since then and joined classes 5 years later.  I’m not where […]

  • Kids Point 

    Just in time for holiday shopping, a whimsical kids concept store has opened its doors in Dubai. Step into a magical place filled with the cutest accessories and little shoes (oh those shoes!) I attended the launch event which was filled with candy and popcorn, and all things charming to entertain the littles for hours while the […]

  • Pergolas

    Located in Al Murooj Rotana (Dubai), Pergolas literally translates from Spanish into a “wooden frame in a garden for growing plants used for sitting or walking under”. Exactly what you would find when dining at the terrace overlooking the Al Murooj grand architecture. I was invited to sample the buffet menu and opted for the […]

  • Kaleido Lips

    Huda Beauty Lip contours and Liquid Matte Lipsticks are the must-haves since they were launched this year. Huda Kattan is definitely a game changer in the industry and off course her lip (and eye-shadow) range are worth every cent. Bombshell and Trendsetter are the definite trends.  So what are the other trends when it comes […]

  • Level Kids

    Remember that toy store that you always wanted to live in as a child that had everything you ever wanted? This is it and so much more. Level Kids is what dreams are made of. Think fairytales and balloons, Gucci and Burberry kids, yes not just toys but three levels of a luxury kids world. […]

Back to activities, its always a struggle to decide how to keep your kids occupied. Having my first baby and being away from home has forced me to look at ways to occupy […]

  • Tips for travelling with baby

    The first time I travelled with baby Zay was when he was 6 months old. I had to travel alone to Dubai as my husband was already working there at the time. It was extremely stressful to say the least! We have subsequently moved to Dubai and I have travelled alone with baby thrice already. […]

If you’re looking for something to keep your kids entertained, Bricks at BOXPARK is on until this Saturday, 20 August. Let the kids enjoy building […]

  • 5 new baby gift ideas that are unconventional

    With the amount that is available these days for baby, especially in Dubai, its hard to keep up with what to buy as a gift for a new mum.  Especially difficult when you don’t know the gender!

  • Food glorious food

    I’ve always had an appreciation for beautifully crafted food. Moving to Dubai has afforded me the opportunity to explore the culinary side which this city boasts.  Being halal, it is especially convenient to be able to dine just about anywhere (as opposed to Johannesburg), as all the meat here is halal.  In Dubai, I’ve realized that […]
