Editor’s Letter January: Hello 2015

Family LifePost Category - Family LifeFamily Life

Woohoo, January is SO awesome mamas (yes, I am slightly trying to convince myself here after the excitement of the winter break and a few fantastic days with the family) – but while we may be going back to ‘life as normal’ including school runs and routine, the new year means a fresh start and a look at how to make life great. Rather than piling on the guilt with a long list of unrealistic resolutions that are frankly going to make you miserable, we’ll be focusing on ways to make 2015 fabulous with a must-do Dubai guide, tips for de-cluttering everything from your wardrobe to your mind and plenty of ways to have a heap of fun with your families and kids over the weeks to come. There’s so much to shout about in this wonderful city of ours and we can’t wait to discover it all – plus lots of news to share. We’re loving that Tom & Serg, will be open until 6pm at weekends now (supper for the kiddos anyone?) and that our favourite organic market Ripe is coming to Jumeirah for a mid-week experience at NYLA House (check the calendar for more details). Oh and our hearts are a-flutter at the news that the butterfly park at Dubai Miracle Garden  is set to open any day now, watch this space mamas.

If you are feeling a little squidgier around the edges (guilty as charged – thank you Christmas cookies) and need some inspo on the best and most effective fitness options available in Dubers, we’ll be rounding up our top exercise picks (without the guilt factor – promise) including the uber cool and brand new Fit Republik  – the city’s largest fitness hub. With a few more months of glorious weather to enjoy we’re loving the push bike rentals popping up on every corner and will be sharing ideas on how to use the city as your gym and get moving for free (perfect if your wallets have had a workout of their own over the holidays).

This month we’ll be pounding the pavements to bring you the very best of Dubai be it for date night or a playdate, introducing you to some very inspiring ladies and their families and homes plus sharing recipes fashion picks, beauty news, health tips, plenty of new travel options and everything in-between through our diverse and wonderful team of contributors (thank you all).

Right, I am in danger of breaking one of my own resolutions (go to bed early and don’t take laptop/phone/electronic devices near the bedroom), made as part of an effort to get more sleep in 2015 (children I hope you’re listening!) so all that’s left to say is a huge and heartfelt thank you for all of your love and support since we launched last June – we wish you all the best for the year ahead and here’s to making this year super sassy mamas!
