Octoos is a distinct digital platform aiming to connect local talents with explorers to live unparalleled experiences.

Octoos believes that exploring a city is not to be summed up to a “must-see” list of famous landmarks. ?It goes far beyond this.

Today, travellers, day-trippers and curious residents are more and more interested in discovering a city’s culture through locals’ eyes. Octoos is the ideal online place for this. Explorers will find here activities put forward by local Talents eager to share their knowledge and passion.? They will live the city in an unrivalled way that will create long-lasting memories.

Octoos offers an array of experiences for an Explorer to feel the genuine essence of the city. An enriching journey filled with priceless and peerless emotions, taking Explorers to partake local Talents lives.

Who are the talents?

Everyone has a talent, everyone has a story to tell. Talents are people who share what truly make them feel alive. Talents are acknowledged experts in their domain, be it a hobby or a sustainable source of income.
Octoos mission is to bring hidden talents up letting people fully express themselves and reaching out to a larger community of Explorers.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Easy and quick – Talents create a profile on www.octoos.com detailing the experience they offer and all other relevant information.

While Talents have freedom of creation and choice of calendar and price, Octoos is also here to help and advise on how to present the activity at its best. The aggregating platform handles operational details leaving ample scope for Talents to focus on their expertise and to develop their offer.?

Explorers select the category they’re interested in and browse through the available experiences. Once choice is made, booking is simple with the creation of a nice and friendly profile to join the Octoos community of Explorers and Talents.

Eventually, in a natural manner, talent can also be explorer and vice versa. That is the beauty and power of encounters: one may be inspired by another and find the desire to dig up one’s hidden talent or the thirst to explore another experience.

EXPLORING WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

The octopus is a perfect illustration of Octoos philosophy. Smart, friendly, the octopus has many tentacles like the many strings each one of us has on our bow. It is time for everyone to make the most of these strings, let them blossom and embrace the variety of cultures human race has to offer.

Octoos is strongly convinced that bringing people together on fertile ground is the gateway to an unprecedented evolution, that of an era where people will seek more connections, a geo-localized human community that brings life to a city. Telling one’s story through these experiences allows rubbing shoulders with the outside world and changing one’s perception of life, one’s inner self.

Sometimes you meet people who will change your life for the better! It is time to meet, exchange, share and thrive on our talents. Join the Octoos community!

#StayHome with Octoos online experiences

Because of the unprecedented situation we live, we need more than ever to stay connected. We stay at home but we stay curious. Octoos welcomes online activities for Talents to keep on creating and for Explorers to keep on discovering.

Following the success of?Birdsn’Bees?Store at?The Collective at The Courtyard, you can now continue this shopping experience with the newly launched children’s fashion boutique online.

For the past 7 years, Birdsn’Bees have been regularly presents at local events & markets in Abu Dhabi. You might even had a chance to discover their store located inside The Collective at The Courtyard, the leafy oasis hidden in the heart of Dubai (Al Quoz).

Birdsn’ Bees at The Collective at The Courtyard in Al Quoz

While the owner, Hélène, admits that “The part of the job I love the most is meeting my customers face-to-face.” the recent arrival of Covid-19 and the extraordinary circumstances that have followed, have prompted her to take the children’s fashion boutique online.

Hélène and her team have worked hard during the recent lockdown to build a beautiful, easy to use website to allow customers to order from the comfort and safety of home.

Birdsn’Bees stock a curated selection of exclusive brands personally sourced from Europe by Hélène, whose fashion credentials began in the beautiful Nantes, France, where she was born.

We at Abu Dhabi Confidential, especially love the collection of SUNUVA Swimwear, with its vibrant colours, exclusive prints and UV50+ sun protection along with their matching kaftans.

The perfect beach outfit, especially when paired with any one of the huge range of IZIPIZI sunglasses that boast ‘reinvented classic styles’ at affordable prices straight from Paris. The glasses are available for babies all the way up to adults, so the whole family can walk into the seemingly endless Abu Dhabi summer with a smile.

Some of Hélène’s favourite gems include the adorable (and vegan!) scented lip balms from Inuwet and the fantastically bright, 80’s inspired hairclips from Rockahula; but Helene concedes “in truth, I think it would be impossible to find anything on the site or instore that doesn’t become an instant favourite.”

Louvre Abu Dhabi Presents WE ARE NOT ALONE by Soundwalk Collective, a Science fiction Audio and Visual Experience Featuring 7 International Celebrities

WE ARE NOT ALONE reinterprets Louvre Abu Dhabi’s iconic architecture through a futuristic story narrated by international talents including Hussain Al Jassmi, Willem Dafoe, Zhou Dongyu, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Nina Kraviz, Wim Wenders and Jean Nouvel.

Louvre Abu Dhabi added to its digital offering by releasing a 20-minute cinematic podcast entitled WE ARE NOT ALONE. Composed and produced by SOUNDWALK COLLECTIVE, an experimental group of artists and musicians, this podcast invites audiences to discover Louvre Abu Dhabi’s unique architecture through a science-fiction narrative. The podcast is accompanied by a short film that reimagines the museum as the backdrop to this poetic tale that takes place in a post-human galaxy thousands of years in the future.

WE ARE NOT ALONE is currently available on Louvre Abu Dhabi’s website.

WE ARE NOT ALONE by Soundwalk Collective is available on Louvre Abu Dhabi’s website in six languages. The story is narrated in the voices of renowned international talents including Emirati singer Hussain Al Jassmi in Arabic, American actor Willem Dafoe in English, French actress and singer Charlotte Gainsbourg in French and English, Chinese actress Zhou Dongyu in Mandarin, Russian is narrated by DJ, singer and producer Nina Kraviz, and German by filmmaker and playwright Wim Wenders.

The work utilises an original script written by Stéphan Crasneanscki. The story draws on the unique geometry, architecture and concepts behind Louvre Abu Dhabi’s creation. The experience begins with a message from Louvre Abu Dhabi’s architect Jean Nouvel, recorded for future generations. A narrator then places the audience within the tale’s futuristic world, inviting them to imagine the museum’s surroundings in a galaxy that has survived long after human extinction. Posing questions on free will, human nature and destiny, the experience reflects on the human condition in a dystopian future ruled by Artificial Intelligence.

HE Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman of the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi commented: “In these unprecedented times, museums have a responsibility to encourage optimism and positivity in society. I am proud to see Louvre Abu Dhabi fulfilling this role and continuing to boost public morale with ever new and innovative campaigns. WE ARE NOT ALONE by Soundwalk Collective is a beautiful example of this. Mirroring the multiculturalism of its home city, Louvre Abu Dhabi has managed to bring the world to Abu Dhabi as seven high-profile talents from around the globe come together to help produce an exceptional experience. With this innovative science-fiction podcast, Louvre Abu Dhabi pushes the boundaries of creativity while complementing its many new digital initiatives.”

“Louvre Abu Dhabi tells the story of art history throughout the ages,” added Manuel Rabaté, Director of Louvre Abu Dhabi. “As we always look for new ways to experiment and innovate, we continue to explore new narratives inspired by our architecture and collection. WE ARE NOT ALONE is yet another example of our innovative approach to sharing stories of cultural connections,” he added.

Commenting on the commission, Stéphan Crasneanscki and Simone Merli from SOUNDWALK COLLECTIVE said: “WE ARE NOT ALONE allows audiences to ‘lose themselves’ as they imagine or walk under Louvre Abu Dhabi’s iconic dome and the dynamic dimensions that the museum offers. The experience creates a dialogue between past and present civilisations – as represented throughout Louvre Abu Dhabi’s collection – and creates an imaginative future where humanity has taken on a completely new form. The various narrators of this audio creation interact with each other through a script that transcends borders, languages, geographies and cultures.”

The podcast represents the first part of the collaboration with SOUNDWALK COLLECTIVE, offering a preview of an on-site 40-minute audio tour that will be available to visitors through Louvre Abu Dhabi’s multimedia guide at a later stage.

WE ARE NOT ALONE by Soundwalk Collective is part of Louvre Abu Dhabi’s extensive digital offering, providing free access to more content through virtual tours, video, audio and downloadable activities. These include opportunities to explore and discover the museum’s collection and exhibitions through the museum’s website and mobile app and “Art From Home” online resources; make and play, a series of online videos and colouring activities for families and children, and rich digital learning resources for teachers to engage with their students. As part of a partnership with anghami, the MENA region’s largest music streaming app, the museum has also launched a series of curated playlists to experience the museum’s collection in a different way. Inspired by the museum’s masterpieces, the hand-selected tracks feature a range of eclectic music genres.

Louvre Abu Dhabi is also participating in CulturAll, a new initiative launched by the Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi to bring the emirate’s cultural landmarks online for audiences to enjoy their offerings from home.

Follow @abudhabiculture and #CulturAll and stay tuned for experiences from the museum.

Learn to trim your hair at home!

Failed to book a hair appointment before the pandemic struck and now your hair is looking messy? Cutting your own hair when you have no knowledge of it, is a very risky choice.

Luckily, as many of us are still in lockdown at home, there are many accessible resources, video tutorials and tips from hair experts to cut your own hair or even learn to cut the hair of those you are confined at home with. It is maybe not the time to try a new style but at least it will keep you going until the re-opening of hairdressing salons.

If you want to take up the challenge and give it a try, watch this easy at-home DIY hairstyle tutorial technique by Sadia from Pick Up limes – she has cut her hair for years and her tutorials are easy to follow yet super professional. We particularly like her manners and soothing voice.

 

Another favourite DIY video to cut your own hair is from Jen Atkin, the stylist and founder of Ouai (a haircare line we adore). Her video will take you through a step-by-step tutorial of how to cut hair at home.

If you are confined with a man – husband, son, or any members of your family – Jen Atkins has also created a video teaching basics on cutting guy’s hair with kitchen scissors adapted to beginners.

A ground-breaking series to watch with the family

Narrated by Jeremy Irons, the fascinating 3-part series reveals how new archaeological discoveries are only now revealing the true extent of this land’s ancient wonders and its 125,000-year heritage from the earliest human presence in the region to the national union in 1971.

Utilizing the latest cutting-edge technology — from CGI to LiDar scanning and 360-degree camera work — interwoven with never-before-seen archival footage, it is a ground-breaking series that profiles the very foundations of the country’s civilizations. A five-part local version of the series is also available on?shahid.net?and?awaan.ae.

The synopsis of this series

Stretching back 125,000 years and culminating in the union in 1971, History of the Emirates profiles the early foundations of a modern country in an informative and entertaining three-part documentary series.

Directed by David Lee and produced by Image Nation, Atlantic Productions, this series consists of three different episodes lasting 44 minutes each:

Episode 1: Taming The desert?
They reveal the ancient innovations that lie behind some of the most enduring and romantic images of this region – the camel caravanserai and the lush oasis. And they discover the many other ingenious ways in which people here – for an incredible 125,000 years – have been overcoming the challenges of life in one of the world’s harshest environments.

Episode 2: Mastering The Ocean
They tell the remarkable story of how ancient people here used their unique location on the Gulf to find precious resources and forge trading links with the world. From the ancient free-divers who risked their lives to harvest pearls from the seabed, to the merchants who supplied history’s greatest civilizations, from Rome to China.

Episode 3: Rise of the Super-Cities
They look at the key events and forces that in the last 500 years have led to the glitz and glamour of the United Arab Emirates that we see today. From the rise of the tribes that battled for control of the different emirates, to the colonial meddling of the British, the discovery of oil and the struggle to form a new nation.

All details and links here:?https://historyoftheemirates.com/en/the-series-2

The seven mysteries of the Emirates app

Apart from the series, there also is an app you can download on both the Apple store ad Google?Play.
It allows us to take a journey back through time and investigate secrets from the extraordinary history of the UAE. We can also discover amazing facts about how ancient people lived here thousands of years ago.

This is no time to be complacent, we need to gloss our lips, flick our tresses and find new ways to be the superstars we were born to be.

It may feel like we have been parachuted into beauty ground zero. The doors are firmly closed to our salons and spas and all those other special haunts that are such a source of comfort to us for a nice little weekly pick me up. Yes, Corona has put us well and truly in the corner and we need to think of new ways to salve our poor bleached out hands and our steadily darkening roots, not to mention the unibrows which are making their crazy debuts.

So, with current trends going towards grown out roots, bushy eyebrows and naked nails, help is at hand with ‘That Hair Tho’? founder and CEO of this Dubai based salon*, Kate Darling. She has shared her top tips to ensure that we can transition as smoothly as possible into our new look.

Natural nails

Grown out gel polish can be removed safely by gently filing down the Gel and using acetone for removal. Give the nails a little soak, and they will be as good as new. With all the extra sanitizing we are doing, give your hands and nails a treat by moisturizing regularly. You can even make your own DIY mask with three simple ingredients, olive oil, oatmeal and honey. Slather on hands and leave to sit for 30 minutes before gently washing off with warm water. This will immediately hydrate the hands, keeping them soft and supple.

Crowning glory

First don’t panic. Grown out roots can be salvaged with a good coloured shampoo, allowing you to sustain the hair colour for longer, while also beautifully conditioning the tresses. Try to avoid using a boxed dye on your hair as it may prove tricky for you and your stylist to return it to the desired results.

Cutting your own hair is also unadvised, no matter how bored we get. The best way to manage your hair over this time is through hair masks and oil treatments. Apply, leave on, netflix and chill…the longer the better. This will help prevent any split ends until you are reunited with your hairstylist again.
