#DubaiSnowFall at Dubai Ice Rink

Hey Everyone!

Today, I’ll be writing about something my favorite, and how I enjoyed my time. Dubai Snow Fall which is happening at the Dubai Ice Rink. Something special about it is the amazing snow-fall under sun.. Woah! Would you ever imagine having snow under sun? Well, yes it’s true! You can skate under the snow, thanks to the amazing Ice Rink!

It has been from 13th February to 27th February at selective timings and days! It was always fun going to ice rink with my cute snowman. I always grab him for support as I’m still not professional in Ice Skating. Keeping hopes to have that confidence soon though.

I had a wonderful experience skating under the snow. There was live DJ playing some really good music, that you’d wanna dance a lot (until your’re too professional).. The snow used to fall for sometime in between the skating sessions after every 10-15 minutes.

The ticket is priced for a 100 Dhs per person, which is quite affordable for a really fun time at Dubai Ice Rink.

Well, Thank you Ice Rink for always giving us a wonderful and an extreme different experience each and every time we visit!

Did you visit them and skate under the snow-fall? If yes, do tag them and hashtag #MyIceSkatingExperience #DubaiSnowFall

My Vaniday Experience

Hello Everyone!

Are you tired of waiting for your turn at your favorite Salon? Here’s a solution to your problem! Download the Vaniday app or you can even use the website : http://www.vaniday.ae

IMG_7901

So it’s just too simple! I first thought it’ll be really hectic and un-safe to give my credit card details, but nothing went wrong at all! I only faced a mini-difficulty entering a voucher code but the staff assisted me same time and helped me get through it!

Well, to start with it has really simple steps of booking:
1) Download the application in your mobile phone (it’s available for Android and IOS)
2) Choose the service you wish to have done from any of the saloons, or to find a saloon nearby you!
3) You can choose the date and time for the service easily and proceed to the payment section!
4) Then simple Sign Up by creating an account by adding your email, username and password else just Log in if you’re a user already!
5) Then finally you select the option of adding your card details, and the payment is done online!
6) You can also write a small comment for Vaniday and the Saloon to know in-case there’s anything they should be informed about before you visit!

Vaniday

The best part is, it’s just not for ladies but men too! So all you men out there, can book appointments too!

Vaniday is filled with all the salons in UAE, which involves massages, hair care, nail treatments, makeup and much more! I must say this is the best and easiest platform for all the beauty lovers to easily book their appointments and wouldn’t even need to worry!

My Experience:

So I personally wanted to try Kyra Henna & Beauty Salon and something which was also closer to me (after all the research on Vaniday), so I went there with my mother and sister for our treatments!

So as we entered, the staff already knew we would be dropping in for an appointment and they were aware what we’d like to do & without wasting any time we started our treatments as soon as we entered!

My mother tried their Dr. Renaud Hydrating Facial which she liked it pretty much as they made an extremely relaxing atmosphere without the lights! She just had one mini complain that they didn’t know how to use the black-head pin! Overall she found it really good! It costs a 100 Dhs only and the entire treatment lasted for an hour as mentioned in Vaniday as well!

Me and my sister tried the Spa Pedicure which costs 60 Dhs, I sat down and that pedicure was really worth it! The staff knew everything really well, like nail shape, cutting out the skin, and the seats were comfortable as well. I believe they should leave the customer’s feet dipped in hot water for a long time, as mine was kept in for around 4-5 mins! I absolutely loved their massage, oh it was the best! It made me feel so relaxed! I believe Spa pedicure is better than normal one as they add up spa salt and scrubbing which is not really involved in the normal one!

IMG_7930

While leaving, we didn’t have to pay or wait for any confirmation. As soon as we were done, we left as our payments were already done online!

Overall I had an amazing experience trying something new! I believe UAE just needed such a beauty platform where people could easily book treatments online specially when they’re busy with works. You can also locate salons and spa’s in your areas which you weren’t aware of and you do not need their brochures. You can simply see the services and prices online and even compare salons with one another! In order to know about more offers and discounts, do sign up with them!

Not just that, you can buy some gift cards for your loved ones, and gift them a pampering session for themselves!

So looking forward to hear your views about it!

Beat diabetes

A little about #BeatDiabetes; This great initiative has been taken by Landmark Group and all the entry fees of the walk will be donated to the Al Jalila Foundation to support diabetic healthcare in the UAE. The initiative was launched in 2009 in the UAE. They held several contests through all of their social networking sites.

Onetouch Goodie bag stand

The only thing I was disappointed was at ‘Onetouch’ Gift collection stand, the staff was really not capable enough to handle people. There was a mess during distributing the gift bags and many ladies and kids ended up being injured.

Not to forget, ‘Volunteer in UAE’ did a fabulous job! Hats off to them for their amazing support and maintain every single person at the walk today.

Beat Diabetes merchandise goodies!

These are some of the goodies I received a day before the walk. I’m super excited to enjoy these goodies. Even though I did use some of them at the walk itself, but a few more! Thank You #BeatDiabetes!

Congrats on another year of success! See you next year.

Don’t forget to follow them for more event pictures, details and some really cool contests!

Time for some PERi-PERi

I’m going to talk a little, or maybe a little too much about my all-time favorite place whenever I’m in the mood of something really spicy! Think you’ve guessed by now, it’s Nandos with the amazing Peri-Peri Sauces! I think I can non-stop keep writing in about them!

Besides their amazing food, I’ve noticed, each time I have entered Nandos, the staff is really friendly and gives a great warm welcome! Every restaurant has its own special texture of the Afro-Portuguese roots and many others also feature original South African art and unique design touches. It simply looks the best! Not one restaurant, which looks normal, its all so gorgeous!

Nandos at Sheikh Zayed Road!

A little bit I know about Nandos, is they started off in the year 2002 along Sheikh Zayed Road, & slowly within years, they built up their restaurant branches in UAE. What’s more? They’ve got more restaurants opening up in different emirates very soon.. The restaurant mascot is a brightly colored cockerel, the national bird of Portugal.

PERi-PERi Hummus & Pita

To tell you about their sauces, Well they’ve got delicious sauces, which you can have it with almost anything (I do eat dishes at home with their sauces), If you like a sauce, you can buy it for yourself, it’s available at Nandos, or all the Shopping stores across the UAE.

Peri-Peri Sauces:
1) Lemon & Herb
2) Mild
3) Wild Herb
4) Garlic
5) Medium
6) Hot
7) Extra Hot
8) Extra Extra Hot (dare yourself for this)

Strips & Rice (Hot)

I’m a real fan of Strips & Rice, first of all its so spicy and nice, I can’t even describe! It’s normal rice with 5 Chicken pieces which are made with the PERi-PERi sauce! Make sure you do make a right option of Sauces, according to what you can really eat & if you’re a person like me who completely enjoys spice, try with Hot! You will enjoy every bite of your food.

Espetada!

The approximate price for two people is 100-150 Dhs only!

My main favorite’s from the menu;
Appetizer: Peri-Peri Hummus & Pita,
Main course: Strips & Rice (Hot Flavor)
Sides: Corn, Fries
Sweet Endings: Chocolate Walnut Brownie
