Your Weekend With Ipanema: Win A Place In An Ipanema Campaign

 Show Off and Share Your Fave Dubai Weekend Activities!

Hello, winter, we know you’re just around the corner and we can’t wait to get outdoors for plenty of fab family time in and around Dubai – beaching, picnicking and ditching the A/C for loads of fresh air… yippee! At Sassy Mama, we’re all about adventure and exploration and we love the new ‘Your Weekend With Ipanema’ campaign that gives you and your fam the chance to show off some of your recent weekend exploits and win a place in an Ipanema advertising campaign (because we know that secretly we all want to see our name in lights… and our feet in some seriously cool kicks, right?!).


Need a little Ipanema refresher? Well, how about if we tell you that they’re Brazil’s hottest flip-flop, a fave with celebs including Pink and Halle Berry, mini-fashionistas like Suri Cruise and endorsed by supermodel Gisele Bündchen? Yup, these sandals have sassy written all over them. Frankly if you don’t own a pair then you should (check out their UAE Facebook and Instagram pages for inspo on a huge range of flip-flops, sandals and wedges in every colour and finish… we love).

Think you’d totally rock an Ipanema ad campaign and love showing off some of your weekend activities? Well then All you gotta do is get yourself a pair (or five) of Ipanema’s (the best shoes for Dubai’s outdoor season) snap a piccie of you or your gang wearing the sandals while out and about and upload to Facebook or Instagram, tagging @ipanemauaeofficial and hashtagging #YourWeekendWithIpanema . Simple! We rarely need an excuse to shop mamas, let alone to snap billions of piccies of the kiddos around Dubai – and this is one of the best we’ve had yet. Good luck, mamas – or as they say in Brazil, Boa Sorte!

The view that never gets old! We love downtown Dubai - and it’s about time for another visit and walkabout... 📷 @travel_jeff
We love this so much that we had to share. It’s easy to get caught up in comparisons, in trying to give our kids the ‘perfect’ childhood when what they need the most is lots and lots of love. Now that we can do, mamas! ❤️ #itsallaboutlove
