The new Burj Al Arab Terrace
Sundowners at luna sky bar
The new boutique Four Seasons Hotel DIFC, at LUNA SKY BAR lounge offering wonderful cocktails and light bites. Although summer has creeped up in Dubai, they do have an indoor lounge area.
Best Asian Fusion
Wakame in Sofitel Downtown, still as strong as ever. This time, we even tried the famous burger sliders and dumplings. Highly recommended, one of my favorite places to dine in Dubai.
Top Chef Dubai
Whether it’s a “Culinary Art” A “Chef To Be” An “Escape to Thailand” class A “Journey to Mexico” or a “Mini Chef” class even a summer kids camp, it’s a guarantee day of fun and learning at Top Chef Dubai My daughter and I loved every minute and best part about it… we got to eat it all! Hats off to the wonderful chef Christina who made the whole experience great fun and allowed us to sneak in some chocolate while we cooked!
All your life you’re yellow. Then one day you brush up against something blue, the barest touch, and voila, the rest of your life you’re green. That’s what life changing experience does.
This month, we picked Florence. Especially for a first timer. It has some sort of magic to it especially after seeing it from Piazzale Michelangelo. You can find so many articles here on places to dine in Florence and here on things to do in Florence
We are sticking to islands and water this summer! Croatia. Build sandcastles all day on any island, take up water activities, soak in the sun. Whatever you do in Croatia, know that it is laid back, easy and make sure you try the photo jeep safari, zip lining and snorkeling! Kids will LOVE it!
Costa Brava, Spain
You will fall in love with Costa Brava! Take a boat of L’Estartit, and over to the Medes Islands where a sanctuary of birds and animal live there. Spend the full day at the beach, snorkel and go on beautiful boat rides!

The new LG 5 – I found out it has a 360 CAM, which records 360-degree photos and videos for a virtual reality experience! Definitely using this one on our next trip!!
Clarins SunKissed Summer Collection – They are not kidding when they say waterproof and it won’t crease! The best way to remove it is with oil make up remover. Just beautiful for the beach.
You know those long flights or any flight actually, when at the end of it, your make up slides off your face? Even the slightest? Tadddaaaa…. I found a solution to make THAT stop! Thank you Benefit Cosmetics!
Estee Lauder’s new lip potion, pure color envy, launched last month and I got my hands on it and loved it most of all because it lasted up to 8 hours! Inside info: Oil elixir-infused formula is infused with avocado, jojoba and sunflower oils.
