A few of our favourite things to do this weekend
It’s FINALLY the weekend, mama! With The Return of Peanut Butter and Jam night on the Wafi Rooftop Garden, and a fabulous new date night idea, we can’t wait to see what Dubai has in store…
Spend an evening lounging on beanbags and listening to live music on Wafi’s Rooftop Garden. Perfect. We don’t know about you, mama, but unwinding with friends, family, and food sounds good to us. Plus, with the fantastic BBQ (yes, please), plenty of nibbles to keep the kiddos happy, AND bands playing all evening, we’re so glad that the night doesn’t end till midnight.
When: Saturday, 22 April
Where: Rooftop Gardens Wafi Mall, Dubai, UAE
How much: Free entry
In case you didn’t know, we are huge fans of Reform Social & Grill, so this Cider and Beer Festival definitely has us excited. With live music, and a whole hog roast, their three day event brings pop-ups from exclusive cider and beer brands from all over the globe: just pick up your craft beer passport on arrival and collect stamps from all the countries you’ve explored for a chance to win a holiday!

With a bouncy castle, face painting, Wii stations, a magic show, and plenty of food (of course), we can’t wait to see what’s in store. Plus there’s even a prize for the best costume… Time to get that cape and mask ready, and eat your way through the day!

Let’s be stronger than our strongest excuse. Yup, that means exercise, mamas! Join lululemon Mall of the Emirates ambassador & Physique 57 Instructor, Karlee, for a in-store barre class.
