Vendome Lingerie in ‘Toffee Apple’ by Chantelle

This gorgeous’Toffee Apple’ lingerie set will only be available at the new Chantelle boutique – opening soon in City Walk – hooray!

His & Hers ‘Up-Cycled’ Bicycle From Charicycle 

Cycling is romantic. period. The wind in your hair, the sun on your face – the feeling of freedom as you float through the neighbourhood (and escape the family for a few mins). Well, we’ve found the most beautiful bikes that are not only about looking great, they are also ‘up cycled’, using old frames from Japan – and also about ‘giving back! Because every bicycle that Chari Cycles sells contributes directly to funding bikes for children in refugee camps. And sharing the love is what Valentine’s is all about.

Available in lots of pretty colours – from AED 1200 at charicycles.com
