Buying…

what we love in April 1

Shabby Chic blackboards (and mirrors) by Ruth Abela

I always love supporting mamas who turn a passion into a business – particularly when the result is a range of stunning blackboards and mirrors that will transform any wall. My latest purchase is a large framed white blackboard for the kitchen – perfect for chalking up notes to the kids or last minute shopping needs. The only problem? Choosing a colour, they’re all gorgeous. I’ve also got my eye on the turquoise….
Frames come in small to extra large and cost from AED 125
To order, call Ruth on +971 (0) 50 708 8931

what we love in April 2

Workout gear from Stadium

Remember the days when a workout meant an old t-shirt and mega unflattering jogging bottoms? These days dressing for the gym or studio is so much more about fashion and looking as good as you’re trying to feel. If you haven’t checked out Stadium yet then do it mamas – a fab store that brings together over 48 of the world’s biggest sports brands, they often have really great flash sales and you’ll find everything from swimmers to running gear. Even if you’re just wearing it to the school gate and back (we won’t tell).
Stadium have stores across the UAE. In Dubai you can find them in Dubai Mall, Deira City Centre, Marina Mall and Dubai Festival City. For more info check out their Facebook page.

Kiehls Ultra Light Daily UV Defence with SPF 50

A red nose is never a good look – smother your face in Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defence – complete with an SPF of 50 and perfect for under make up or just as it is – and you can head out in the sun with confidence. And it protects against ageing. Hooray!

what we love in April 4

At Eat Greek

Honestly the best brekkie we’ve had in ages – head to the Dubai Mall branch if you’ve got shopping to do or sit out on the terrace at The Beach, JBR and soak up the views of the ocean. The poached eggs with avocado and salmon were so good that I dream about them – and the Greek inspired options including greek yoghurt and berries, grilled halloumi, a mezze platter and other scrummy stuff just looked too delicious not to come back for.
Eat Greek is at The Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates and The Beach at JBR www.eatgreekkouzina.com

Pizza with my eldest at Jones The Grocer’s new pizza classes

At only AED 100 for 1 adult plus 1 kiddo, an hour and a half of fun and 2 yummy pizzas to eat at the end this is a great way to spend one-on-one time with the littles, especially now that the weather is heating up. Highly recommend!
For dates and locations please see the event listings at your local Jones The Grocer store or email events@jholdings.ae and keep an eye out on the Jones The Grocer Facebook Page.

what we love in April 6

The opening of The Cereal Killer Café

A café that only serves cereal? Yup, already a hit in London, it’s coming to our desert city soon and we’re intrigued! And if the Blighty version is anything to go by then you’ll be able to choose from around 120 different cereal options (lucky charms anyone?), 20 toppings and 30 varieties of milk. Sounds pretty cool to us – because sometimes nothing but a bowl of cereal will do.Watch this space for dates and deets mamas!

what we love in April 7

The final reveal of Dubai Opera

Set to open this year, Dubai Opera is shaping up beautifully and we are SO excited! A 2,000 seat, multi-format performing art centre that’s shaped like a traditional dhow in Downtown Dubai – the stunning venue is going to offer everything from theatre to opera, ballet to concerts plus exhibitions and other cultural events. Date night is going to take on a new dimension!
