Dane in The Desert: Grooming, Gadgets and Gorge Desserts
BEAUTY AND GROOMING
Glambox launches a new box for guys and girls
I’ve known about Glambox for some time, so I was delighted to be invited to the launch of the latest ‘back to school’ box this week. Glambox is a subscription service for him or her, where you receive a package of carefully selected grooming goodies every month. What’s great is that it’s always a surprise when you get your four or more beauty and men’s products straight to your door. There are so many types of products in the market, so being able to test out different ones each month makes it so much easier to find things that you like and want to buy more regularly.
My Gadget Heroes
I had a little ‘episode’ this week when my phone stopped working, I’ll even admit I had a full-on panic when it wouldn’t switch on (we’ve all been there!). So to find a company like Geeks was a life-saver. They picked up my phone, repaired the hardware, then returned it to my door in less than four hours. All for just Dhs560! They fix almost anything, in terms of phones, laptops and computers. Panic over, and my precious phone is back in my hand.
Catch, Fairmont Dubai
I’ve heard so much about Catch, and now I know why! The food here is AMAZING. I started with the grilled octopus with crispy potato – it’s delicious with some smoked edamame. For my main I had spicy king crab pasta, which included king crab with squid ink pasta, roasted tomato with cream and spring onion. The way this is presented in the crab shell is really cool, too.
Now for the dessert, a signature dish for Catch. The ‘Hit me’ chocolate cake. Wow. Liquid Klondike, roasted white chocolate ice cream, brownie and devil’s food cake, what more do you need? Chocolate sauce is poured over the top and as it solidifies you’re invited to hit it with your spoon. A great little gimmick and an amazing tasting dessert. Along with the DJ and cool atmosphere, Catch warrants a visit.
This week I’m lovin…
