Items to help staying indoors fun

When it's too hot to handle outside, our options for entertainment are somewhat limited.

After all, there's only so many times you can walk laps around Mall of the Emirates on a weekend. We've already seen all the new movie releases currently showing.

We could head to brunch - but that every weekend is a good way to empty our purses. And honestly, we've already scoured ASOS and Amazon for a good few hours each night whilst binge-watching Stranger Things 3.
