H A L L O W E E N overload

Hey guys!

Hope you are all keeping well ☺️

Been a while since I last posted something. Things has got super hectic and focus just had to be elsewhere. 

We did however manage to try out the famous BostonLand cafe here in Dubai last weekend.

Super cute and hip place. I will be honest though the Halloween was a bit too much. Not just for anything, this cafe got a lot going on already..and the Halloween decor just made it look like a bit of a mess if I am going to be honest. 

Get what I mean? And this was just one side (the calmer side) of the cafe. 

And the food was “meh”. Very average and way too pricey. I had the famous tuna melt and hubby had the garlic and cheese melt – we could not get any garlic flavor..so not sure if they forgot that in our sandwich or not. The tuna melt was good, but nothing I got vowed about and not one of those “if ever I want tuna sandwich this is the place”

The coffee was decent, again very average – but also nothing to complain about. It was better than the rest of the order at least 💁🏽

The one time the Halloween decor worked to my favour. 

However, I must share – the location on the outside was absolutely stunning. And in these winter days beautiful and relaxing to sit outside and enjoy. 

I am glad we tried BostonLane, not a bad place. But I did expect a bit more for the hype it had got. And we wont be rushing back any time soon. 


Just an Ordinary haul

The very highly spoken about and hyped up skincare and foundation brand. I got sucked in to it too. But how could I not when it is so cheap?!

They are constantly sold out of their products, both on cultbeauty and ASOS. So when I suddenly saw the both foundations restocked on ASOS it did not take me more than a couple of minutes to finish my order. 

I did not get much from their skincare as I am happy with what I have and have a lot to go through. I did however get the eye serum as I have been on a hunt for one and don’t currently own any. And this claims to solve my main issues around the eye: dark circles and puffiness.

Can’t wait to get my hands on them and to actually try all of them ASAP. I will for sure report back after testing them out and getting a feel for this much spoken about brand. 

Have you tried The Ordinary? Good/bad?

The Acai Spot

Just have to share this place with you all as this very quickly has become a favourite spot for us. Located in Port Saeed, Deira you will find this beautiful spot by the name The Acai Spot. 

If you are a health food/superfood lover, or you like keeping up with trends and/or exploring different places – this is one for you. 

The location is so soo pretty as you can see. So relaxed and chilled, yet vibrant and colourful. I have fallen in love😍

Let’s not forget the food! Super simple and super Yum! I apologize for my lack in words to describe, but honestly you just have to try it for yourself. 

I love that I can come out from this place feeling content and satisfied without any guilt. 

(Yes, even the croissant is wholewheat).

(The loved one with extra date toppings)

The flavours are just so pure and hit all the right tastebuds. 

On the picture you will see «the loved one» which is an acai Fruit mix (one of their best sellers – and for good reason) with extra date topping, the croissant sandwich and «the peach & ginger ice tea».

All of it we recommend, pluss some. The whole menu calls out to you. 

Wether you live in Dubai or happen to visit Dubai I do recommend you check this place out 👌🏽

Away, but not away

Salaams my loves! Hope you are all keeping well. 

We are already at a new week, why does time fly like this?!

This weekend was meant to chill and we spontaniously decided to spend a night away from our apartment and normal daily surroundings. But at the same time we did not want to go too far or anywhere that required too much driving…as that would just make us more tired. 

Something about working life/adulthood means weekends are meant for relaxing. Anyone remember those days where weekend meant «Let’s go out and do something»/run around/party and what not?!😂 #WorkingLife

We landed at Sheraton Dubai Creek. Though hubby was still caught up with work it truly was nice to spend it a hotel where no cleaning is required and we wake up to one of the most beautiful views. 

So pretty mashallah 😍

We took an evening stroll along Dubai Creek, had lovely Italian food at Oregano (one of our staple Italian go to places). However, a small side note: avoid ordering the smoked aubergine ravioli..yes, even if you love aubergine like me. I know it is a love or leave it type of veggie. And for me I love it, have never had a bad experience with it e-v-e-r. But this one was not good.. other than that we love the food at this place and keep going back.

In addition we had their cheesy garlicbread (A+), the tuna in pesto gnocchi (A++).

The bread on the side is complimentary with the order and generally speaking has always been good and somewhat filled us up before dinner has arrived. So be aware of that 😜

It has been an amazing an beautiful weekend. Though it was just a small drive from home it honestly felt like a mini vacation and the weekend flew by a lot sooner than we would like. Allhamdulillah though, not complaining what-so-ever!

Take care everyone 💕


Almost weekend peeps!!

So ready for the weekend. Zone out, relax and do exactly whatever we feel like. 

Over to what the post is actually about. Found this old, but a goodie nail polish from OPI.

Don’t you just love that DuoChrome effect?! Orangy-goldish-red 😍 so so beautiful! I get the vibes of summer and fall all in one, perfect transition colour. Though I live in Dubai which is basically summer all year round 😅 

The colour is OPI – the show must go on.
