Katana Summer Sundowners…

Katana Dubai

If you want to head somewhere fancy, but don’t feel like paying the price tag (because now that we are all adults, eating nothing but ramen for the rest of the month is frowned upon) then I have the perfect spot for you!

Established on LA’s iconic Sunset Strip and recently bought to Dubai, Katana Robata & Sushi Bar Downtown are doing a Summer Sundowners Deal – They promise warm sunsets, fresh sushi and chilled sounds from 4pm-7pm and all it will cost you is AED 100!

You get a selection of 2 cocktails (my ultimate fav is the Summer Whisper – It’s a ginger beer infused cocktail) and some of Katana’s fan favorite bites – Starting with a selection of three Katana signature robata skewers including Chicken and Green Onion, Sake Salmon and Tomorokoshi with Yuzu Shiso Butter, which are then followed by a choice of signature Katana Maki Rolls and two choices of Nigiri, including fresh Salmon, Tuna or Yellowtail.


The perfect way to wind down OR start the night – Dealers choice!

Katana’s Summer Sundowners Menu runs from 17 August 2016.

Available daily from 4pm – 8pm, *until further notice.

Priced at AED 100* per person.

I’m Ready For My Close Up Mr. Demille…

I’m a media whore! There I said it, seeing myself in print is the ego trip and my drug of choice! No matter if it’s in the social pages or “what they were wearing” I get a kick out of it!

So of course when Ray Ban were scouting for the perfect “Non-Model-Looks-Quirky-But-Not-To-Quirky” to feature in their new campaign with Stylist Magazine (also a favorite of mine) for a double page spread their first and second choice weren’t available… So they picked me!!

I give you… Clare’s resting bitch face while wearing Raybans and trying to keep my nipples in place…. Pick issue 18 to see me in all my glory!

Nothing Tastes As Good As Skinny Feels… Well Almost Nothing….


Being a 20 something white girl from the suburbs, the only problems I’ve had to deal with in life is which parent I hate that day and my angsty feelings against whatever was cool to hate that week… And of course, how fat I was…

After moving to Dubai and gaining the Dubai Stone (this of course, has something to do with the 3am Burger King delivery and the mass amounts of vodka I consume) I finally(after 9 years) decided to try and do something about it.. Apart from complaining and then eating a burrito…

After trying a slew of detox’s, juice diets, starvation, cigarettes – Note I have not tried exercise and won’t. I came across something that actually works….

Nutridiet – It’s a combination of shakes and soups (I prefer the shakes) you have 5 shakes a day, you feel totally full and after the third day you will start to feel lighter and hotter!

It’s a meal replacement diet – But damn girl it works, this combined with heartbreak (I was ghosted and it turns out it’s the perfect thing to remove your appetite) I dropped 2 dress sizes in almost 2 weeks.

Technically What is Nutridiet

Nutridiet is a soy protein-based weight loss diet, it contains the nutrients your need but has a low amount of calories – only about 110 calories in one serving.  When replacing all or some of your meals with Nutridiet, you can lose weight safely and easily. The composition of Nutridiet reduces your hunger cravings and ensures that muscle mass is retained during your weight loss.

Thanks to my dramatic weight loss and subsequently my dabble in the “hot” category – 4 of my friends are already on the program as well as my whole office…

Every day I start my morning with a chocolate Nutridiet shake and a shot of espresso – It’s like a mocha latte but so much better!

You can find it online here –https://nutridiet.ae/english next day delivery and you can also pay cash on delivery….

Trust me – If I can do this and lose weight anyone can! This is coming from the person who tried to quit smoking and at 3am woke up going through the bin trying to find a cigarette butt… And side note.. That wasn’t even my lowest point!

You Had Me At Free Burrito’s Taqado… You Had Me At Free Burritos


Burritos to me are like air and water – I as a human can not survive without these things. When I order burritos – YES I know the guac is extra and no I don’t care that I’m always late on rent due to my Burrito addiction…

So when the ONLY place in Dubai to get a DECENT burrito – Taqado announced Taqado Takeover giving away 11,000 free burritos to celebrate their 11th store opening, I prepared myself for battle….

Each Taqado outlet will gave away 1’000 free Burritos between 11am and 3pm, on a set date per outlet, starting on May 1st and concluding on May 11th.

If you don’t hear from me during this time – It’s because I am in a burrito coma

Manzil Downtown Brunch…. Slicker Than Your Average

Brunches in Dubai are a thing of beauty -Thanks to our glutinous nature we can consume carbs and vodka over a 4 hour period like no one’s business! But after a while the brunches you used to love… You start to loath (yes Saffron I am talking about you – If I see one more tarted up 35 year old hobbling on sky scraper heels, or one more spotty 22 year old who is obviously in Realestate or consulting I think I’m going to puke into my vodka laced pineapple).Manzil Downtown Brunch

The Manzil Downtown Arabic Themed Levant brunch is quite a change of pace from the usual “Shots Shots Shots.” As you walk in you are hit by mesmerising Arabic music (not the tacky kind) the food is an array of Arabic infused dishes (my ultimate favourite was an Arabic sweet that resembled a round donut with popcorn on the top!)

While you can actually have a conversation at this brunch, while you get your hands hennaed (I regretted getting this straight away as I had a shoot the next week).
Manzil Downtown
The cocktails were my favourite with apt names such as;
Passion Boulevard
Manzil Daiquiri
The perfect brunch to take friends with kids (they have a play area – Mummy needs 2 hands to drink her daiquiri) friends visiting Dubai and especially parents. It’s like taking them on a desert safari except it DOESN’T SUCK and you get impeccable service!!
Go HERE for all the info on this fab brunch!

Just Don’t

I don’t trust super nice & positive people, I straight away think they are fake or it’s to mask how socially retarded they are.

I on the other hand, wear my weirdness / bitterness for not being more attractive or richer like a badge of honour. In conclusion…. I hate everyone… That’s why when I found this little Namshi Tee – I had to own it….Or didn’t… whatever I don’t care……

Wearing Namshi

And yes… Mum-High-Waisted-Denim skirts are coming back in… Don’t believe me? Wait for your mum to unpack hers and show off that muffin top with pride!!

Just Don’t Shirt

He was a skater boi…

When I was 16 I used to pretend I could skateboard to impress all the hot punky losers that hung around the skate park while they smoked their funny looking cigs – (Yes I was that naive). So I speak fluent skater brands like Globe, Vans, Etnies as you had to at least, sound legit to secure a “pash”… So imagine my 20 something-year-old surprise when I found a legit Vans hat on everyone’s favorite online store Namshi AED 125… You may even pick up your own skater boi with this baby… Or lie about it while feeling legit!!!

Wear Your Spirit Animal On Your Shirt

I am a twenty-something stuck in the body of an angsty, tween who loves Taylor Swift  just as much as she loves slogan tees.

The words Netflix Nachos & Naps has never completely summed up one’s existence as it did mine… Don’t believe me… Last night was spent licking sour cream of my pajama top while trying to find a new franchise of The Real Housewives, that I haven’t already binged watched 3 times… Update I rewatched RHONY

Netflix Nachos and Naps

If you want to wear your slob like existence heart on your sleeve this is the one for you!
