Weekend Fun [January 2017]

You know I love having a festive, relaxing and entertaining weekend and most of all to have a new experience. Nothing brings me more joy than having to experience or see something I have never before. I feel like good ambience is everything!!! So starting this month I will have monthly guide to places you can visit in Dubai. I will do my research and make a list of every place I feel like is cool, unique, hip and interesting. If I find something along the month I will add that too.
