A time out in Dubai with reMADE dxbLike0

It’s no secret, we all wish sometimes there were more hours in the day. Our minds sometimes yearn for a time out. Spas are there to unwind for the body, but what about the mind? I always find the voices in my head louder when I lay there on a massage table, so I decided to take a good friend’s advice and take my mind to a therapeutic few hours time out.

A cute little sewing parlor in dubai for those who wants to get away they call it. reMADE DXB is not your typical granny style sewing (although my granny rocked at sewing) but arts and crafts! Being in reMade Dxb was by far one of the most fun I had sitting on a chair. In a room. Christmas carols, lovely ladies and cookies and tea being passed on. Theresa Tsui and Paula Horsfall started this little project 1st of March 2013 for their love of all things handmade and since then has not stopped!

Its simple, I logged on to The Curve, booked a seat, which usually costs 195 dhs per session and waited in anticipation for the day to arrive.

At first, I had absolutely no clue what I was doing, they show you how to make one stocking in some gorgeous festive fabrics so you can go away and make as many as you wish at home. The price of this class covers all the materials, tools, equipment and light refreshments that you need. You can also be part of the Sewing Machine Driving License which is a two hour introduction to using a sewing machine that will teach you how to thread the machine and use a variety of stitches and techniques.

It was so much fun getting to know the ladies, learning how to make the simplest craft decorations for Christmas and gifts for loved ones. I also had my phone on silent and in the span of 3 hours, I only looked at it once. It’s a complete shut down to the world and to the mind. I have officially become an addict and could not wait to go back again! Thursdays is 50dhs from 10am to 4pm and you can walk in and just do about anything you like! Theresa even taught me how to do the beautiful clays at home so I can teach my 2 year how to do it as well and have some quality time with her and Paula patiently kept teaching me how to sew within the lines.

Thank you KAJA!!!

  • Woke up this morning feeling a sudden disconnection.
There’s power in disconnection.
When you separate yourself from the world for a while, you’ll figure out what’s feeding ur soul, what’s entertaining ur ego, what’s nothing but a distraction... and then you find exactly where your alignment is.
  • Happy whatever f**** day it is 🤷‍♀️
  • Someone said to me “The strong woman you are becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces, outings and material things. Always choose her over everything!” And so, I did. 💫
  • I’ve always thought you should be able to freeze time... This way you could hit the pause button at a really good point in your life so that nothing changes. 
Being in the Arctic. Pause. 
Happy Sunday 💫
  • I read something today that says “what you hide in your heart... shows in your eyes” and I smiled. I’m counting down the days to be able to say, we made it through the storm. 
I’m optimistic about our future and the future of our business... and pray we all find that place of peace where the chaos inside of us is understood... Whoever you are, wherever you are.

  • In the midst of chaos with what’s happening around the world, I hope you always find the courage to keep living and love deeply in a world that is slowly failing to do so... 💫
  • Before taking off on our TJD series, I got the chance to enjoy a family break at Zaya Nurai thanks to @experiencemuse. MUSE had curated this bespoke experience, knowing that part of unwinding for me, is spending quality time with my family. Can’t wait to meet our new guest travelers in Finland!  #experienceMUSE
  • “The question is not how to get cured, but how to live... for she was always fighting a battle but her smile would never tell you so... and that’s how she created Neverland”
  • ‘When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes.
When you get photograph people in black and white, you photograph their soul’

Probably will delete this... but for now... I’m loving it.
  • What makes you happy? They say that every time you are happy, you are on your path. So be aware of the moments where you feel the most happiest... and hold on to it 💫
  • Shoutout to all the shy, introverted, empathic, social awkward souls who are pushing past their comfort zone to share love with the world and detaching themselves from fearful thoughts and using their energy to believe instead of worrying. 👊🏻
  • Due to popular demand, we have decided to launch yet another @travelwithtjd trip last minute on the 26-30th March 2020!! Chasing the Northern lights on an adventure of a lifetime to end the winter season!
For those who missed out on all our groups for March in Finland. This one’s for you! Message me to get more info!! See you in the North!
