I arrived home today from Dubai after a short but busy break there. As busy as it was, it was so amazing to meet fantastic new people, to get some badly needed Vitamin D and to sample some more of the treasures that Dubai has to offer. One of these treasures is the most exquisite restaurant called Voi which is situated in the equally breath-taking Zabeel Saray Hotel. It’s a French-Vietnamese restaurant and the food is just so delicious, especially the wagyu beef…Mmmmmm!
The highlight of my holiday was certainly getting my engagement ring made and it turned out perfect for me. It was a beautiful moment. This engagement business has turned me into such a soppy romantic! I will share some pictures with you soon,
I really took the time there to relax and enjoy the moments with my fiancé and that meant not constantly thinking about this little baby, my blog which was hard but now that I am home, it’s time to focus again.
It’s time to get some work done!

It’s been such a wonderful few days in Dubai…once we finally made it here after a few delays. Yesterday, we treated ourselves to brunch in the Al Qasr hotel with a group of friends….I adore food so this is just heaven…So many different treats to try and a room dedicated to just desserts. YUM!
Yesterday I wore a floral print dress from H&M and some shoes from last year from Zara with my Anthropologie necklace. I also love these new mint sunglasses from Aldo.
Today was a wonderful day…. Everyday spent living should be a wonderful day. Life is too precious to wish it away.
2012 has been a good year for me. Last year I wasn’t in such a good place mentally. I was unhappy and constantly wondering what I could do to make myself happy. 2012 has taught me many lessons in life. I have worked hard. I have had knock backs and triumphs. I have met amazing new friends and connections. I have learned new skills. I have simply learned to enjoy life and to let go….
I am going to celebrate 2012 by getting a tattoo. I have been putting it off as I am so scared of needles and pain but I feel I am ready now. Que the dramatic music….
Life is not always easy but who or what would we be without struggles and challenges in life. No successful person EVER became successful by sitting back and letting the world go by…. I have been inspired by so many different people this past year. I have had many a person scoff at Life’s Lust Haves and sneer at what I do but I have also had people compliment me on doing what they can see makes me happy. Sure if we all did the same thing, life would be very boring.
For now, here are some pictures of my new shoes that I got in Brown Thomas today. I am actually obsessed with them. In fact, I feel like a Disney Princess in them. Christian Louboutins have that effect on women though. I will be wearing them with so much love tomorrow for New Year’s Eve. I also added some quick snaps of what I wore today: My Aldo Collar and my Zara Coat with a leather sleeve which I love. Leather Fetish.
Tonight, I am going to put together some memories of 2012,
