Helloooo weekend! And please kids, do not disturb before 6am at least, mama needs a lie-in! Here’s to 2 days of @privilee_uae fun - what are your plans? 📷 @roadtrip_chic
‘If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote ‘me too’ as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.’ You’re probably aware of the social media campaign that’s tearing its way around the world - women have encountered harassment in all forms  and suffered in silence for too long. This is the time to confront the belittlement and stand united. For ourselves, for our friends, our sisters, mothers, daughters - for anyone we know who may be suffering. #metoo
Dubai’s latest beachfront destination @lamerdubai opened today and it’s gorgeous! Currently only first phase open (with more to come) but there are already kids playgrounds, restaurants, cafes, activities, in- waster hammocks, space to scoot and loads more plus it’s so pretty! Had such fun exploring- more on stories! 🚣
Friday night feels... #moveoverbeyonce
Our Editor and her fam headed out to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve early this morning for an @arabianadventures desert safari - a great way to get that all-important dose of nature and see all sorts of creatures, from camels to sand fish, oryx, gazelles and more in a pristine desert environment, and a yummy picnic brekkie too - perfect for when the weather cools or if you have visitors in town! 🐪🐪🐪🐪
