Coconut water is revered for its health-boosting qualities, but there’s no way of guaranteeing that the products you’re buying are all-natural and preservative-free. Until now, that is. American health beverage brand Vita Coco’s (04 434 0700) range of all-natural, fat- and cholesterol-free coconut water drinks are now available in Dubai for the first time. They contain 100 percent natural juice from young green coconuts, an effective source for essential electrolytes and potassium. They are also free of colourings, preservatives and flavourings, and are available at supermarkets including Spinneys, Choithrams, Milk & Honey and Waitrose.
Meanwhile, the La Mer counter at Bloomingdale’s (04 350 5333) is now offering pre-wedding skincare regimes for brides-to-be from the luxe brand. Designed to get your face glowing for the big day, the 12-week Bridal Experience programme is divided into three steps: The Proposal, The Preparation and The Promise. It includes a consultation with a skin expert, an express facial treatment and a customised radiance treatment facial. At Dhs825, it’s redeemable against any La Mer products purchased during the course of the services.
Lastly, James & Alex Dance Studios (04 447 0773) is inviting salsa-lovers to join the Latin Xperience weekend at Meydan Racecourse. Night one kicks off with a burlesque-themed event featuring kizomba, bachata, zouk and salsa, followed by mambo fever the next night. Tickets start from Dhs95 and can be purchased from
the Dubai Media City studio.
