A New York City Christmas


Hi all, 

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas.I spent mine in NYC with  family. The plan was to stay indoors and eat ourselves into a food coma, but we decided to go into the city to get a bit of the NYC Christmas excitement. On any given day, New York is jam-packed with tourists, but it seemed to be even more packed on Christmas day. The shoving and aggressive maneuvering was definitely not the Christmas cheer we had hoped for, and after a while, we called it quits and headed back home for a sumptuous Christmas dinner. 
Here are some of the few pictures I took.

What did you guys get up to on Christmas day? Any fun or not so fun story to share?

Desert Safari, Dubai


When my friend and I started planning our trip to Dubai, I immediately added a desert safari tour to our list of activities. I had seen so many cool desert pictures on Instagram and I could not wait to join the fun.

 The tour started with a sand dune bashing. I had never heard of sand dune bashing, and if I had looked up what the activity entailed, I would have probably stayed away. I did get a bit dizzy, but fortunately, I did not throw up. After the exciting dune bashing, it was time to ride the camel. It was a fun ride albeit short. The rest of the evening on the desert was relaxing, I got the henna tattoo on my hand, smoked some shisha aka hookah (first time), stuffed my face with the buffet food that was provided in the desert camp and watched a belly dance performance. The desert tour was amazing and was the best experience I had in Dubai. 


Over the next few weeks, I will be posting picture from my other Dubai adventures. For now, enjoy my Arabian desert tour.

8 colorful winter coats to covet

I am a big fan of colorful clothing in the winter. And as the temperatures drop, I find myself looking for vibrant winter coats. Early this year, I purchased this green coat from Lord and Taylor and I am currently on the hunt for something that's equally vibrant. However, because we are right smack in the middle of winter, it's been hard to find a decently priced coat. It seems like I'll have to wait till the end of spring, when the prices have been significantly marked down. For now, I'll just feast my eyes on these gorgeous colorful coats I found online.
