Following a beautiful lunch at Aura Sky Lounge, I enjoyed an intentionally quiet week. I was back to K9 Friends (dog walking is available again!), and managed a quick jaunt out for a friend’s birthday at February 30 in West Beach.
On Thursday, I made my way back to Clap for their new business lunch with an incredible group of women. While the food was excellent, it was our discussion that was the most memorable. You can catch my visit here. #invited
Finally, I received a lovely delivery from Anastasia Beverly Hills, full of beautiful products that I’ve already started using. #gifted

Next week is packed! MENA’s 50 Best Awards are on Monday, and I can hardly wait. I’m really looking forward to celebrating this inaugural list, and I’m hoping to be wearing local designer (and friend), Dima Ayad for the evening. I’m also going to Spinneys HQ for some bougie burgers and the Waldorf Astoria for a special evening with Monkey 47. Finally, rumor has it that some of Dubai’s best chefs will be doing something special in the desert… I’ll report back next week!
