It’s been an amazing couple of weeks for the UAE’s art and culture scene. The long-awaited Louvre Abu Dhabi is finally open to the public, Art Abu Dhabi has officially started, and Alserkal Avenue has an array of new exhibitions to start off the UAE art season. And this is only the start as winter descends on the Emirates with more art exhibitions, initiatives, and talks planned in and around UAE. This is obviously great news for art enthusiasts. However, there are many of us who know that art is a worthwhile activity to take part in but unfortunately we don’t do that. That’s why I have Maan Jalal, an arts, culture, and entertainment aficionado here to educate us more on why we should be paying more attention to UAE art galleries.

There are no prizes for guessing that the right choice of home accessories can breathe life into a space and inject it with warmth, personality, and atmosphere. According to our home décor expert of the day, Medy Navani, who also happens to be the Creative Director & Founder of Design Haus Medy, the interior is the body, and the accessories are the soul.
I remember the first time I tasted Aloe Vera juice, I had an immediate regret and swore never to have it close to my taste buds again. But later I learned that it’s an acquired taste; and the moment you acquire that taste, you will reap quite a few benefits by drinking Aloe Vera juice. Well, I have not reached that stage where I can drink it without gagging from the bitterness, but I’m getting there (fingers crossed).
With the wedding season already here, I have a few posts up my sleeve ranging from wedding planning to knowing what type of rock would suit you, and anything in between. But still, weddings. They’re a time to celebrate the love of two people, create life-long memories, eat, and have ‘friends’ bet on how long the union would last. But behind every candle and canapé is months or sometimes years (or just days) of planning, as any husband or wife would tell you. With a long list of to-dos to tick off before your big day, I had a chat with the wedding planning team at Radisson Blu about some of the definitive wedding planning dos and don’ts.
Have you ever thought about egg freezing? Well, I’d be lying if I said the thought never crossed my mind; the thing is I just never took the next step to find out all about this egg freezing process.
