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!!!

  • Always believe in Magic 💫

  • I’d like to wake up here again - without any expectations... even if it’s just for a little while. What about you?
  • This is my far far away 💞 
Where is yours?
  • I read once that “awareness is what keeps any relationship strong”... so, while I understand that we are the master of our own fate, understand that those around you play a major role in your life, but, don’t ever mistake kindness to weakness... 💫
  • Someone said to me today: “Some people are ‘once in a lifetime’ type of people. There is no upgrade after that.” That’s a whole new level of appreciation. 
Hope you have those people in your life. 
Have a beautiful weekend 💞
  • Take a deep breath, and remember who the f*** you are! ;) Good morning 💞
  • I’ve posted this photo many times and it’s still one of my favorite moments.
I listened to a podcast yesterday and it resonated with me so much on the topic of earning trust in the corporate world “Earning trust: consistency in your behavior - trust is developed and established through consistency in behavior” 
I’ve often said that if you have so much moodiness in your life, you will lack leadership and trust, It’s something I truly believe in people. If you want to earn trust, be consistent in your behavior, in your choices and your words... most importantly, in what you believe in... otherwise, people will pull back. Think about that for your Thursday mood :)
  • It’s been a while since I’ve done a just “pick up and go”. The picture I took from outside my room is a reminder of that time in Kenya. Yep, it’s a giraffe.
Lately, everything has been so planned and that spontaneous “go” is something I sort of miss. 
There are definitely few things I’d want to do... for example drive a motorhome somewhere far far away, surf in the arctic... re-visit Kenya... explore Latin America...those are just few of the things. 
If you were to pick up and go, where would you go and what would you do?
  • Summer in @ourfinland was one of my highlights of 2019. On a mission with @travelwithtjd - we explored the south coast and witness the magic of the midnight sun while driving North West. 
From cabin life by the lake, to glass houses by the sea. We hiked, went on road trips, went island hopping, ate a LOT, took ATVs, did BBQs and jumped into the lake!
Join @dennisstever and I on our @travelwithtjd Finland Summer Series on the 21st of June - 26th June 2020, as we take you through the coast and into the wilderness and experience the summer activities that Finland has to offer.

  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything I set my mind to. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. 
But, I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I almost never needed to escape from. I’ve started my year with intentions to keep me grounded... and I intend to focus more on them. 
This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I’ve had the privilege of meeting incredible humans on our @travelwithtjd trips. 
I'm constantly learning from my mistakes and from others and I'm slowly acquiring patience and acceptance. 
I’ve met empowering souls who braved the arctic and chose to kick their fear to the curb and go on a life changing journey with us. 
I can’t help but be so grateful and in love with everything they have given and taught me, and that’s how I remember 2019. Through those I’ve met on our TJD trips, through their support. 
My message to them now is this: 
I know... that just because you carry your load well, doesn’t  mean its not heavy... So, choose wisely. 
Choose yourself first. 
Love strong and fiercely. 
Love with everything that you have. 
Don’t follow rules, break away from expectations. I'm changing...I'm growing... and I always chose to live the life I’ve always dreamed of, and not what others expect of me. 
Be fearless. Always remember that mental connection is stronger than physical attraction. 
And most of all, be a giver, but never one without boundaries... Happy 2020. 
Love, Michelle
