Weekends in Dubai

22nd January 2015 – 24th January 2015

This weekend in Dubai, I can’t believe I have added mostly food related topics. Of-course, the Market OTB is still open and such a lovely atmosphere early mornings before the crowd. We loved the Jam Jar sessions with paintings and all things art. I have warned you though, you will be over spending. Sometimes, these markets tend to forget the real reason why people have street markets… for the bargain and good food. You won’t particularly find a good bargain there but definitely worth a visit!

1. Dine at TR!BECA Kitchen 

A  New York inspired lifestyle hotspot featuring healthy and organic food, whilst showcasing local entertainment and an endless display of artistic home-grown talent opens in JBR, Dubai that serves healthy and organic food and beverage options in a lounge bar environment, is set to take place on Friday 23rd, January, 2014 for a VIP private launch. The TR!BECA kitchen is headed by award winning Chef Giovanni De Ambrosis, who passionately couples exquisite food with artistic form, hailing inspiration from Mediterranean cultures and fusing them with American Contemporary Cuisine.

Where: Tribeca, Kitchen & Bar Level 1, Ocean View Hotel, The Walk, Jumeirah Beach Residence

When: Opens Friday 24th January 2015

The Jetty Lounge is not a restaurant as such but an elegant beachside bar. A sunset beach bar with lounges and soft music. Take advantage of the ‘freezing’ weather.

5. Food Festival at Perry & Blackwelder’s Original Smoke House

The fair, which is free of charge to attend, is a buckle-down celebration of all things meat. Expect food stalls with wings tossed four ways, smoky sliders including short rib and turkey and barbecue platters of P&B’s signature brisket, turkey and hot wings. With side orders of live country music from Wes Hayden and his band, fun and games for all the family and specially-sourced craft hops and rye, the fair is a true taste of the Deep South’s most-loved traditions. From 5-10pm, Sunday to Thursday and 2-10pm, Friday and Saturday, Pitmaster Lawrence Wells and his team will showcase the USA’s Deep South barbecue heritage from which the restaurant draws its inspiration. Harnessing the traditional technique of cooking meat for long periods of time at low temperatures with smoke from a wood fire – this is not barbecue as you know it.

Where: Perry & Blackwelder’s Original Smoke House at Souk Madinat Jumeirah
When: Thursday 22nd January for 10 days

  • I’ve been on the road a lot in Lebanon which has been an adventure on its own! The Infiniti Q30 2.0 has the navigation system with updated maps of Lebanon which made it easier to find my way around. It’s things like this I love the most about returning back here. Endless road trips with friends and despite Lebanon being so small, the adventures are endless! #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Home sweet home ♥️ Spent the weekend dancing the night away and at the beach during the day!
How was your weekend?? 🇱🇧
  • Compassion is power. Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, fear and happiness. 
Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery and to smile with those who are happy. Compassion towards others is what makes me human and it’s a skill that I’ve learned to cultivate. And if you don’t have it, then it would be difficult for me to have you in my life. 
So this is a reminder to be good to each other today and to those you don’t know. God knows how many of us need it. 
Happy Saturday ♥️
  • Lake Chouwen - Lebanon 🇱🇧
A beautiful reserve, a 45 minutes hike and an adventurous location through Jabal Moussa! I even drove through the tiniest road into the mountains and was freaking out but made it through thanks to my co-pilot :)!
Lebanon is filled and surrounded with beautiful nature. 🇱🇧
Had an incredible day exploring Lebanon with @ramimansourr @mikhaelbitar @sarahdibrahim @abbas_kalel
  • Lebanon’s morning activities are filled with daily road trips across the mountains and the coast with close friends. Stopping by historical landmarks and eating the best zaatar in small villages. It also helps when your #infiniti car has BOSE sound-system 😊
Happy Tuesday everyone! 🇱🇧♥️ #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Good morning from home in Lebanon in Beit Douma. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back in Lebanon!!! Have you ever been?

I’ve added an article on a guide to 9 guesthouses in Lebanon, you can click the link in my bio.
  • There really isn’t any better way to sail across Madeira Island than with Pedro and his gang! @rotadoscetaceos2016 We saw whales and swam with wild dolphins!!!! We jumped in the (freezing) Atlantic sea and went diving and discovered the most beautiful island 🌴 Now it’s your turn to go!
  • A beautiful slow morning in Madeira 🌴
Isn’t it beautiful?
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything.
  • It was sunny and we were heading to the pool in Lisbon when all of a sudden a little rain cloud passed and so decided to just walk out and get some pastel de nata 😊
  • Today, my mind is like a laptop set up. 
I have 20 tabs open, 4 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Dreaming of going back to Madeira 🌴
  • Madeira Island is home to Europe's tallest sea cliff- more than 1,900 feet above sea level. The Madeira Archipelago is located in the Atlantic Ocean, in the African plate. 
Before my trip to Madeira, some people told me I only need 3-4 days to tour the island. It’s far from the truth and I’m glad I didn’t listen to them! It’s been a week here and there is still so much I feel I haven’t explored yet!! Would you visit Madeira Island? 🇵🇹
