Valentine’s Day in Dubai (Errrrything Valentine)!
Valentine’s Day in Dubai – So I am not exactly a huge Valentine girl myself and I do definitely believe that love is a universal feel all year around and not just celebrated only on this day, but hey I am still a girl and I still do love the silly-ness that this occasion brings about in everyone – I mean where’s the fun if you don’t keep enjoying the silly-ness no? If you are running out of time and haven’t made any plans yet, here’s my one stop shop to Errrrything Valentine!
WHERE TO BEAUTY:
The Nail Pavilion – Only for 14th Feb, get yourself a blowdry for AED 100!? I know right! *kaching*
Be Bar – I think I have finally found a blow dry that knows and understands my hair. My curls didn’t go away even after three full days! And did I mention that you can get your hair washed whilst lying on a flat bed?!
Foreo LUNA Play – The new travel size Foreo LUNA PLAY cleanser – bye bye cotton pads! Channeled through soft silicone touch-points, T-Sonic pulsations in this cleanser removes 99.5% of dirt and oil, as well as makeup residue and dead skin cells, improving the absorption of your favorite skin care products. LUNA PLAY also directs lower-frequency pulsations that bring youthful-looking skin by reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as leaving your skin looking firmer and more elastic. Absolute winner for the beauty bag!
WHERE TO SHOP:
Namshi! No surprises there 😉 I mean…where else are you going to find an online shop with more than 30,000 styles to choose from and 24 hour delivery?!
Virgin Megastore – Online again and another one of my go to! If you don’t know it yet (and are clearly sleeping under a rock), you can now shop online and they now ship directly to your doorstep!
WHERE TO DINE:

Afternoon tea on top of a mountain – I mean who cares about food when you are actually having a picnic with your better half perched on top of a mountain right? Wait did I mention that it includes bubbly!! Safarak Tours will arrange a guide to take you there from RAK’s new Via Ferrata site (Dh400 per person for the twice-daily tours of that thriller). The afternoon tea or a sunset picnic is Dh280 per person with food such as finger sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, and soft drinks. And the one I would definitely go for is Dh450 with bubbly!
Kayaking in the Mangroves – If you are not an adrenaline junkie, the Anantara Eastern Mangroves in Abu Dhabi organizes kayaking tours everyday! Priced at AED 160 per person, it lasts for 90 minutes on a super scenic route.
And finally – a very happy Vday to all my peeps! Have a fab one!
