What’s happening around town, mama? Lots! Check out our list of things to do in the desert city this week, including a fun run (okay, maybe not that fun if you’re not feeling so athletic!), family-friendly entertainer Gabriel Iglesias performs and more!
Celebrate Children’s Day at Tape A L’oeil at MoE! There’s lots of fun to be had with your little one, including face painting, arts and crafts, cotton candy… and a 25% discount at all branches. Minis will get to customise a trendy clutch bag, which you’ll be able to take home (score!).
TAO is also hosting a competition on Instagram: post a picture from the event and use the hashtags #tapealoeil and #taomoe. The three pictures with the most likes within a one-week period after the event will win an outfit from Tape a L’oeil valued at AED 200. Good luck!
