Last Thursday, right after an entire work week that felt like forever, I headed off to Conrad Dubai to try out the much-coveted Intraceuticals Rejuvenate Facial.

I usually take good care of my skin, but the past week has been wearing me down (think extra cups of coffee, under 5 hours of sleep and not drinking enough water). The lackluster reflected on my face, and I was relying on this session to make me look and feel more ‘alive’ for the impending weekend.


‘No Stupid People Beyond This Point’ read the large neon signage at the front of newly opened Blaze Burgers on foodie strip, JBR. Passerby’s stop for a giggle and an Insta-worthy click, but the real artistic renditions lie beyond the neon signage where walls are done up in tattoo-style graffiti, a pair of eyes peep out from the pipe-works and an entire shelf of enticing sauces and cutlery are ready for pickup in your very own shopping basket.

Named after one of my favorite Mediterranean salads, Tabule, the tangy, fresh parsley medley that often appears as a cold mezze at the start of an Arabic feast, is an authentic Lebanese restaurant set in the picturesque landscape of Roda Al Murooj.

We were there last Saturday to try out their BBQ Brunch, which proved to be both a visual and gastronomical treat. The lush greenery and astute architecture beguiles the mind into thinking you are dining in an exotic location, far, far away from the urban jungle of Dubai.

Meat lovers rejoice! American barbeque specialist Mighty Quinn’s has finally made their debut into the Dubai foodie scene at JBR.

Mighty Quinn’s is not your everyday grill-house. Specializing in slow-cooked, wood fired all-natural meats and poultry, Mighty Quinn’s promises an authentic barbeque experience that was born in the South, and perfected in the Big Apple.

We booked a table there last Thursday, and were in for a real treat. #WowJBR is in full swing, and the entire JBR strip is lined up with interesting market stalls, and in the evenings, there are live performances and activities for kids. With hum-inducing, rhythmic tunes from local band Sandstorm, we decided to go alfresco, right at the edge of all the action.

Imagine a bonfire by the beach, a tent on the sandy shores, the waft of a decadent grill… and all this inclusive of the amenities of a 4-star hotel.

The weather is absolutely perfect for camping outdoors, but why take the hassle of setting up base when Bin Majid Beach Hotel has you covered?

Last weekend we had the pleasure of being a part of one of the most unique hotel ventures in the UAE… the Bin Majid Beach Camp.

Rosehip Oil is a bit of a juxtaposition… the bare mention of ‘rose’ might conjure up an overbearingly floral, scented picture but in contrast you have an oil that smells of… well, an oil.

Rosehip Oil is far from rosy, and has a characteristically bright yellow color. Although the oil has been used for beauty since the era of the ancient Egyptians, Mayans and Native Americans for its healing properties, it was probably Australian beauty Miranda Kerr who brought it back to the limelight.
