10th April 2019: Dubai Design District

On 10th April the RL trip went to the Dubai Design District to visit 3 exceptional exhibitions held by the Paris based School of Jewelry and Arts “L’Ecole” (visiting Dubai for only a few days).

We had a wonderful morning viewing the treasures of Saudi Arabia and the Aga Khan’s incredible collection of Cartier and Van Cleef and Arpels Art Deco vanity boxes. Finally we had a great talk about the amazing trade in pearls between France and the Gulf states in the early twentieth century.

We were also offered this great advice, soak your pearls overnight in water from time to time to rehydrate them. This can improve their lustre!

We are privileged to get to see exhibitions like this. Thank you Allison for arranging the trip.

On Tuesday 24th March, we met Dr Jennifer Kasirsky at RL Social Morning.  Dr Jennifer is a doctor specialising in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the new Mediclinic Parkview Hospital. She spoke to us about the hugely important subject of teen health and specifically the HPV virus and the need for vaccinations. Thank you, Dr Jennifer, for giving us a wake up call about HPV vaccinations. No woman needs to die of cervical cancer. By vaccinating our young teens and with regular pap smear tests we can all be safe.  It was a really inspirational talk and Mediclinic gave each of us a great goodie bag containing skin products and a water bottle too!

On Sunday 24th March the Ladies Lunch was held in Liz’s lovely garden. 31 women attended and Liz provided a delicious Mediterranean meal along with a host of delicious puddings which were donated by RL bakers. Thank you ladies. Liz had a super team of volunteers making the afternoon a great success.  A big special thanks to Allison for donations of food and help in the kitchen.  It was a special day. Please look on our website www.arabianranchesladies.com for photos from the lunch.

March 12th 2019: Ana Caragea

4 Rhythms of Feminine Energy

Ana is a leadership coach and her focus is to introduce the concept that as women we function in a different way to men and by becoming aware of ourselves we can use this understanding to better plan and activate our daily routines.  She will be outlining the 4 Rhythms of Feminine Energy and showing us practical ways of using this awareness in our daily life.

Announcements

On Tuesday 5th March RL Suz McDonald presented a bite size Mandala Art workshop at RL Social Morning. She spoke to us about her company, Sourceful, which offers group classes and one to one sessions for yoga, Reiki, Theta healing, meditation and mandala art.  We all produced some lovely mandalas and can now recognise the use of the design in buildings and objects all around us.  Carole’s below is a beautiful example.

Suz is offering Ranches Ladies 100 dhs off their 1st booking with her.

Al Ihsan

RL made another successful trip to Ajman last Tuesday. Jeanette and Connie took along all your lovely donations and they were received with gratitude and many messages of thanks for our continued support. They filled around 150 bags with food for distribution and handed out your kind donations with pleasure.

In addition to food, one RL member gave 40 colouring pencils and notepads which delighted the children. It was a joy to see their faces light up at receiving an unexpected gift just for them. We also handed in 3 bags of unwanted medications to the pharmacy. These were gratefully received.

We asked the organisers what they thought would be well received next month and the quick response was oil, flour and sugar to enable the ladies to make their own bread. Collecting starts next week for this excellent target of enabling ladies to bake their own bread!

If you would like to help bagging up or on distribution night please get in touch with Jeanette on ranches.ladies@gmail.com or speak to her on Tuesday morning.
