Kick off motivation month at Maui

On a post-festive season fitness buzz? Got a New Year Resolution to up your step count? Then make a lunch date at Maui Poke Bar this month, and take advantage of an offer that should really get you moving. Available all day, every day at the Media City branch until the end of January, prove to the team that you’ve walked or run 5km that day on your watch, phone, or fitness app, and dine-in customers will get 50% off any Poke Bowl ordered. More than enough reasons to take a walk this Friday lunchtime, we’d say! Find Maui Poke Bar at Building 7, Dubai Media City, mauipokebar.com.

Closing weekend at Market Outside The Box

Dubai Shopping Festival is in full swing, but if you haven’t yet been to DSF’s awesome outdoor shopping experience, Market Outside The Box, this weekend is your last chance! Extended until January 9, this must-visit market is packed with brilliant local brands and fun F&B trucks to keep your shopping spree suitably fueled.

From fashion and jewellery to beauty and homewares, we’ve discovered some major shopping gems on our numerous December visits – including super-hot new Dubai brand, Aegean Boutique, whose expertly-curated collection of unique Turkish fashion and homeware finds totally nails the boho-deluxe beach vibe we can’t get enough of. Alongside the RETOLD stand, whose ever-changing collection of pre-loved fashion at amazing prices never fails to inspire us, with so many brilliant stalls to shop from, you simply can’t afford to miss out.
