Dream Woman Live
It’s exhausting being a Mama – and sometimes we need time to reconnect with the person within. Get ready to do just that, as Dream Woman Live is taking place this weekend, with a series of immersive, transformational workshops. The idea of the event is to take a moment to remember who you really are (and we definitely need to do that, right Mamas?) and then move on to learn how to turn your dreams into reality. Experts will be on hand to talk about their own heartaches and successes, whilst meditation, practical workshops, and group mentoring will also play a part. For tickets click here.
When: Thursday 18th – Saturday 20th
Where: Al Serkal Avenue, Al Quoz
How much: From 460 AED
My Kid’s a Superhero Show at Courtyard Playhouse
If your home is filled with superheroes rushing around in masks and capes, we have the perfect suggestion for Friday! Playing at Courtyard Playhouse on Friday morning (11am-12.15pm), ‘My Kid’s a Superhero’ is an improvised theatre show, where the kids in the audience get to choose the fate of the characters. We think it’s the perfect way to introduce 4 and 11 years old to the wonderful world of theatre – and better still, it’s completely free as the facility are so passionate about theatre that they want our kiddos to fall in love with it too!
When: Friday 19th May (11am-12.15pm)
Where: The Courtyard Playhouse, Street 4B, Al Quoz 1 – call (+971) (0)5 0986 1761 to register

Get ready to shop clothing, shoes, accessories and nursery products for boys and girls aged 0-12 years old, all at impressive prices! We’ll meet you in the aisles!

The Boom & Mellow Giving Back Pop-Up
If you fancy a shop this weekend, head to Boom & Mellow in Town Centre Jumeirah – as with every purchase at their pop-up market, you’ll be giving back. This is the UAE’s Year of Giving after all Mamas, so it makes sense to head to a pop-up showcasing the region’s most sought-after and socially responsible labels, from vibrant kaftans, to stylish homeware, to elegant jewels. Top of our wish list is the beautiful personalised dolls by Dumye, which gift one doll to an orphan in need for every doll sold. We’re sold!
