I'm So Happy I'm One of Ahlan!'s Hot 100!
The Ahlan! Hot 100
I was thrilled that Johnny and I have been selected for the Ahlan! Hot 100 for our work with our Dubai Performing Arts Academy and my Ahlan! column. We had a wonderful evening hanging out with Olly (one half of Hollaphonic) and the fab Ahlan! team!
On the night, I was this pink gown and my dear friends Maitha and Latifa Al Maktoum gave me the beautiful henna-inspired body art tattoo. I had lots of compliments from people wanting to know where they could get one. The ‘Arabian Nights’ tattoos are available from www.ThinkImaginery.com for Dhs66 for two A5 sheets of designs.
The Westin Pik-Nik Brunch
My family and I tried out the new Pik-Nik Brunch at The Westin Mina Seyahi. I highly recommend it to families looking for a relaxed Saturday afternoon. The hampers contain a delicious assortment of cheeses, meats, breads and dips, and the kids were kept entertained by interactive circus games, including tight-rope walking, under the supervision of trained staff. The best bit of the day was bumping into our good friends Dubai 92 presenter Catboy and his lovely wife Lorra! Great to see you guys, same time next Saturday?!
INFO: Dhs390 per basket for a family of two adults and two children (excluding drinks)
My Adidas Boost
I had a busy week at our academy as West End Star, and friend of mine, Daniel Koek gave our students a surprise performance from Les Miserables! I also had fun filming my Ambassador video for Adidas and their new ‘Ultra Boost’ trainers with my students, who did me proud. Come and visit us at the Adidas Boost Experience stand in The Dubai Mall from 19 to 30 March.
