Staying fit in Dubai – Dubai 30 x 30

As some of you may know, this month is the Dubai Fitness Challenge! This is when people all over Dubai are encouraged to do 30 mins of exercise for 30 days to promote a healthy lifestyle. There are lots of really interesting fitness activities being offered, from running down Sheikh Zayed Road to yoga lessons on the beach, and I think it's a great opportunity to get out and active!

Hidden Gems of Dubai – Local Businesses

So today I decided to write the second post in my ‘Hidden Gems of Dubai' series In this post I’m going to introduce you to some local Dubai/UAE businesses, and tell you why I love them.
