What I’m buying this month
I’m going to be a mummy soon, so am on the hunt for a fashionable, roomy bag to fit all those baby essentials in. This cool camouflage one from Kipling ticks all the boxes – there’s plenty of space, it’s on-trend (no teddy prints for me, thank you very much) and the handy across-the-body strap will keep my hands free. I’ll be using it way before baby arrives, too, so at Dh569 I’ll certainly get my money’s worth!
Designer collaboration to watch out for
New York’s golden boy, designer Alexander Wang, is coming to an H&M store near you soon! The latest designer collaboration will hit Dubai shops on November 6 and is full of uber-trendy luxe sport pieces. We at AQ HQ can’t wait to get our hands on some key pieces for our casual wardrobes. Prices start from Dh149.

Psst… news alert
I’ve discovered a great new lingerie find. Boux Avenue has a beautiful range of undies, from practical bras to pretty lace-and-satin sets, plus great-fitting swimwear, sleepwear and a beautiful bridal range, too. Sizes range from 30A to 40G (6-18) and prices are affordable. I love the 1950s vibe it has in stores right now.
