Saturday in Dubai

I’ve been seeing this amazing natural art installation/secret photo spot/what even is this place on some of my favorite local Dubai photographers’ insta‘s, and I finally found it today. No clue what it really is, but it’s pretty amazing.

Dubai Eats: The Farm

I’ve been hearing about the Farm for a while now, a gorgeous restaurant out in Al Barari, so I was excited to finally go for a weekend breakfast with some girlfriends.

#Ruglife : Hossein Rezvani

I attended the opening of “Carpetized!” at the Salsali Private Museum at Alserkal tonight, where Hossein Rezvani’s works were on display in collaboration with carpet gallery Iwan Maktabi.
