In love with.. Madinat Jumeirah!♥

Desert day!
We visited the desert this time around again and it was NOT as it was last time we were there. Our first Dubai trip was amazing and super fun but our best day was when we went to the desert but this time everything went wrong. The car we payed for to pick us up came more than an hour late and it was a mini bus filled with people, and the jeep that cruises through the sand did that for three minutes and we were done… And when we arrived and that part was done the sun had already set and oh boy was I disapointed. I first and foremost looked forward to the sunset because they are soooo beautiful there but anyway. The lines for sandboarding, camelriding and fourwheelriding were way too long since everyone arrived late and we didn’t get to do anything. After taking pics we didn’t get the pre-snack because they had run out of them… And when we went to get our sodas they were super rude! And when we got our food we ate for like a minute and then we couldn’t finish because we had to leave.. Basically everything kept going downhill… But we got nice pics at least and taking the pics was probably the funniest moment. 🙂

Madinat Jumeirah!
I’m IN LOVE with this place, such a surreal place to visit. Absolutely gorg mA. If you’re ever in Dubai you should definitely visit Madinat Jumeirah. It was so calm and beautiful. Me and Zora went around for a while and then we ate a super delicious lunch at Meat&Comp.

3 days in 1 post #PHOTOBOMB ♥

Salam!
So here is the vlog from day 4,5,6. I basically did not vlog day 4 & 5 but I did vlog our wonderful day (6) in Sharjah, check it out:

So day 4, the first day of 2016, contained pure chillmode. We woke up, went to the beach and later that night we went to Burj al arab to chill some more. It was beautiful, we took some pictures and then headed to a mosque close to it that sells the best Karak Tea ever. It was so delicious! Plz someone, send me Karak.. Anyway, after that we went back to JBR and just hung out even more. So it was a day filled with chill, after having a crazy night (new years)..

Day 5- This day was also just pure chill. We woke up, ate breakfast, went to the pool and just soaked in the sun. After that we decided to go to jbr to eat Shake Shack and ooo do I miss Shake Shack!! I’m not a hamburger person but that food tho! After our wonderful dinner at Shake shack we went to Naif Souk and shopped a little bit. We didn’t stay long, the place literally contained only men… I was like where my ladies at?! 😮 So after a little while we went to a restaurant/café somewhere, I can’t remember the area or the name of the place. But we just sat there and ate and talked and talked and talked. Lol. Even tho we hung out everyday, there was always something to talk about with these ladies. One of the good things about being a group of five chicas. 🙂

Now, this is a place (Sharjah) that I definitely did not expect to like. No offence. But I just didn’t expect the place to be very nice but oow was I wrong. Sharjah is actually a looot prettier than I thought it would be! We went to Souk al islami (I think it’s called) and while we were shopping we noticed that the sun was setting and decided to go out, we had no idea how the backside of the mall looked like. We were positively surprised for sure. It was one of the most amazing sunsets I’ve seen. Just the whole view by the water, the birds flying around making it look like an arranged set for a movie scene and the palm trees.. Aaggh just everything mA! Gods creation is truely one of a kind. After taking gazillion selfies and pictures (and videos) we went for dinner (lunch, late lunch as usual). And that buffet tho.. They had too much food, I was soo confused. Food paradise. It was inside a mall, a mall with basically no stores but yeah it was a mall for some reason. After our amazing dinner we headed to Dubai mall to iceskate. Yall may think “Sara you live in Sweden why would you iceskate in Dubai mall”, well it was Dubai mall… Haha it was just fun to skate inside a mall, without hundred of layers of clothes and good music etc. We had an awesome day alhamdulillah. We went to operation falafel afterwards. It’s always either Operation falafel or Cheesecake factory…

When it caught fire! #NewYearinDubai

Salam!!
So a new vlog is up

and ofc I’m about to follow it up with some pictures up in here!
So day 3 in Dubai was NOT as I thought it would be. We imagined it to be one of the funniest days there and fancy chamncy but naah.. It was so not.

We started of the day with pool chill (oh yeah). After that we took our time to just hang out and get ready for our dinner and fireworks.
IMG-20151231-WA0060 - Kopia
We split up in two groups and went to Dubai Mall. We romed around for a bit and ate cold stone ice cream, yummy!
It was five mintues between these pictures.↓

20151231_18013820151231_195633
After that we had to have our new year photoshoot by the Dubai mall entrence duuh.. Lol we just stood there and took a bunch of photos and then we headed to Al Hallab, the restaurant we booked for new years. Their food, at least the first part that we got to eat, was delicious. I absolutely love lebanese food!

And then in the midst of our dinner Sofia is like: “I think they started a little celebration earlier, isn’t that fireworks?” And we turn around to see sparks falling down and we were like… ? And after about six seconds we see material burning and falling down a building. The sparks turned into flames and we started seeing a little bit of smoke. We realized that the building in front of us and in front of burj khalifa was on fire.. I went out and the fire spread faster than Usain Bolt, I was in chock. After ten to fifteen minutes all 20 floors were on fire and there were bigger pieces of material falling down in flames. We decided to leave and started walking towards the exit and in that moment they started evacuating the restaurant.
20151231_21423520151231_215018
We went to the other side of the mall, outside the main entrance, and just sat there for two hours (until midnight) since we couldn’t get home anyway. There were no cabs or buses, the roads were closed etc. We watched the fireworks and started walking home. We walked for TWO HOURS(!), without shoes (!), on the high way (!). The whole night was just surreal. The roads near Dubai Mall were closed so there were A LOT of people walking towards their direction. We wanted to get home to JBR and let me tell you something, IT IS NOT CLOSE. So after walking on empy highways, crazy busy highways and on dirty roads, we found a cab… I’ve never felt so at ease after finding a darn cab! When we got home we were hungry, ofc, so we changed clothes and went to Operation falafel.

I will never forget our new year in Dubai, it was the opposite of what we had imagined and planned but then again God is the best planner. Anyway if you are still reading, props to you my friend!  I hope to see you in my next post iA. 🙂

May Allah bless you 2016, may He keep you and your close ones healthy. May God shower you in succes in dunya and deen. May God keep you happy and safe, always!

Day 1 – Dubai + Vlog

Salam!
Soooo my first blogpost this year, 2016! 🙂 I’m so excited to be back. I rang in the new year in Dubai and therefore  the first blogpost should be about Dubai hihi. I will post a vlog together with a post of what we did there everyday, we were there for 10 days and we absolutely loved it as usual. I do think our company is what makes the trips so wonderful. Love the girls.

Our first day in Dubai was so much fun! We were like small children trying to do everything in one day and we were super duper happy lol. We woke up in Sharjah, went to JBR to our apartment and also stayed there for lunch, went to Dubai mall and then to Dubai Marina.. It was a long day that went by fast that’s for sure. Here is a vlog and some pictures that sums up our first day.

Italy, Rome!! #4

In Rome me and Zora bought like a million braclets. They were so simple and cute! That was kind of our ‘thing’ in Italy lol. The last day we just wandered around and enjoyed the last things there were to see. There are people everywhere, playing music, painting and what not. My amazing bestie bought me flowers and then we enjoyed a last meal on the rooftop of our hotel, with an amazing view of Rome. Miss it so much already!DSC_1155DSC_1159 DSC_1161 - Kopia DSC_1162 DSC_1167 DSC_1170 DSC_1172 DSC_1174 20150809_223123

I loved ITALY, I can’t say it enough! These are the last pictures I’m posting from that trip but Rome was a beautiful city. The whole city is a museeum, it was amazing alhamdulillah. So where do you think I should go next?! I have to say I am already planing my next trip, I always have a travelfever.. I think you’ve noticed that lol.

Hope everyone is doing great! Don’t forget to pray for our brothers and sisters around the world! Hold on to every piece of love, hope and positivity you have because you’ll need it in this messed up world.
– Until next time in shaa Allah! ❤

Italy, Rome!! #3

Salam!
Our third day there was amazing as well. We went to two of the most amazing places in Rome, the Colosseum and the Vatican City. We went to the Colosseum for the third time but this time we actually went in lol. It was insane. To think that around 80.000 people used to stand in there and watch all the craziness go down.. Crazy. And btw that day was insanely warm(!), I felt like I was on fire!

I really really fell in love with the vatican city though, it was such a huge place, silent and just super nice. 🙂 We watched the sunset and took a walk, super cozy and nice after having my feet turning all sorts of crazy from all the walking.. And when we got on the bus at night on our way home it started pouring rain. But it was still crazy hot though..DSC_1101DSC_1104DSC_1110 DSC_1122IMG_0203DSC_1136DSC_1139DSC_1140 IMG_0223DSC_1141DSC_1144DSC_1147– Until next time in shaa Allah! ❤

Italy, Rome!! #2

Since I’m home sick from work I thought I’d share more pics from my Italy trip. Here is part 2. I will never forget this first full day in Italy, we were like kids on a playground, we wanted to explore it all! It was sooo warm, we drank sooo much and my feet died because we went all in! We literally walked to almost every place in the city the first day, my black ballerina flats felt like they were on fire because of the sun but hey it was sooo much fun, I am not complaining lol.
The fountain I really looked forward to see was under construction…Ofc..DSC_1001DSC_1008IMG_0156DSC_1017DSC_1033DSC_1040 DSC_1045 DSC_1056 DSC_1068 DSC_1083 DSC_1086 DSC_1096Our first whole day there was awesome. I really loved seeing a city filled with small, cozy streets and so much culture and history. I miss Italy so much! Hmm.. Where should I go next??

 Until next time in shaa Allah! ❤
