What to do with friends this Summer in Dubai.

Spa day with the girls at Talise Spa, Al Qasr

There’s nothing I love more than a spa day in my diary and to top it off with the girls I love. Start your day with a private treatment and then end it with a catch up by the facilities. I recently booked in a spa evening with my girls at the Talise Spa, at Al Qasr – which I might add is beautiful. We were all booked in for aromatherapy massages in separate chalet rooms, and then met at the relaxation room for tea post treatment. Definitely a great idea to get pampered, soothe out the stress, and a great way to get a bit of Summer staycation in there. It’s also super easy to plan this – just call up the spa, and let them know you are planning to book within a group. For more about Talise, click here.


A Cocktail Masterclass at Gaucho

Ever dreamed of becoming a bartender? I recently took a class at Gaucho (the Argentinian steakhouse in Dubai) to learn how to make different cocktails. We started off making two signature Gaucho ones, and ended up making some with Champagne (my favorite) alongside a few delicious canapes including Humitas. A great weekend idea for friends, or if you’d like to learn how to make some before hosting a get together at home, this one comes in handy. Everything was simple, easy to make, yet were delicious and the presentation skills were ace. Just incase you were wondering, we made Patagonian cobbler, Russian Spring Punch, and French 75 – yum.

Take a Pole dancing class together at James & Alex Dance Studios

I must say I was terrified about trying a pole dancing class, but intrigued and excited at the same time. My instructor, Lisa was so sweet, made me feel at ease and showed me how this class is not only a great upper body workout, you can also have fun whilst doing it – I mean, I had so much fun and ended up feeling my arms and upper back the next day. The music is great, the vibe is fun, a great way to have some fun with some girls. Location is great too – being based in Media City (Lime tree building). For more details, click here
