During our break we had time to share our different Christmas tradition and Christmas list... 

Emilie, from Stella and the Stars, are you staying in Dubai for Christmas this year and what are your plans?

We are staying in Dubai and it will be our first ever Christmas in the desert. No family celebrations this year sadly but we will be spending the festive season with new friends! There is something terribly exciting about spending the winter holidays in flip flops on the beach....

What are your top 3 products at Caramel and Sun?

Oh my god there are soooo many. Play and go toy storage bags changed my life, I am obsessed with all the lamps (bunnies, mushrooms) from Egmont Toys and the Vilac ride-on pink car is just what dreams are made of.

What did you enjoy the most during the photoshoot? 

Adding a bit for madness and colour to the Xmas theme, working with a bunch of fabulous like-minded mamas, have the kids playing supermodels for the day, seeing how an idea in my head just came to life thanks to the beautiful products we used. 

How about you Emily, from Dubai Our Sandbox? 

We are going home to Sweden for Xmas. It's our first Xmas in our new house...Hoping for a white Xmas by the fireplace!

My favorite products from Caramel and Sun are definitely the Light Box from A Little Lovely Company, the coloring Posters from Omy and of course the storage bag from Play and Go.

It was really nice to mingle with lovely ladies, strong mum-entrepreneurs that I really appreciate and get inspired by.

Magali and I will be staying in Dubai. Christmas is an important retail period for us and we want to make sure all our customers are happy... however on the 25th of December you may see us at the beach !

Merry Christmas to all and Happy Shopping !


Thank you to Racha Hallak for all the lovely pictures and her energy in this project !
