2. Chloe Drew small leather shoulder bag AED4,770 from MatchesFashion.com.  A little retail therapy through the door.

4. Chantelle bra – this lovely inexpensive French brand just launched it stand alone boutique in City Walk 2.  As much as I love Marks & Spencer, I also love cute and more sophisticated underwear.  They also have more attractive and better designed maternity bras (which I no longer need after 7 years of them!)

The new travel kit for the Konjac Sponge.  The sponges are created from the Konjac potato, a plant native to Asia and a totally natural food source, made up with 97% water and rich in mineral goodness. Given that it is naturally alkaline, it is super kind to even the most sensitive skin. Konjac sponges are free from chemicals, colouring and irritants and completely biodegradable meaning you can do your bit for the planet through your beauty routine. Prices start from AED75

6. The new Arizona mineral orange bikini from Chantelle which is more flattering for mums which is also available in black.   Chantelle’s is located at City Walk 2 Boutique or at Galleries Lafayette.
