To the sales, To the sales!

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you all had a relaxing weekend and ready for another week. We had a pleasant weekend here plus this week is the last week of school! Last Thursday the twins brought back the year end school report home and made me one happy mom. They did quite well, better than I thought they would.  For that I am thankful and hope they will keep doing and trying their best.

Also, last weekend I took the opportunity to hit the sales! Yes, Dubai is having the annual Dubai Summer Surprise until the 14th of next month. Armed with my belt bag, comfortable shoes and simple outfit, I hit the crowded mall. I am actually not a big fan of the sales, reason being is because one, I hate queuing (due to big crowd) outside the fitting room, at the cashier, in the parking lot.. and two, it is very frustrating for me to find something I like but not in my size! Most of the time I would end up not bringing back anything but aching feet and a slight 'broken heart'. For this reason, I prefer online shopping ;) no queue, no cashier, no parking, no hassle. 

So, did I get lucky with this sales? Yes, I did! :)







Peak-a-boo, I can see you! ;)

  3. Lovely outfit as usual!!! Tell us what you got! Tell us!!! :)

    Also, I like the look of your golden hairclip holding your ponytail up. Can I ask where you got it?

    I hear the shopping for gold and jewellery is Dubai is out of this world. Do the jewellers also have massive sales there?

    1. Hey, BB! I got myself a pair of shoes, nothing fancy like yours ;)and some accessories. The ponytail clip is from H&M, comes in gold and silver. Yes, some jewellers give good discounts too even without the sales. This week I'm going to check out some of the one stop boutiques like Boutique 1, Aizone and see what they have in-store.

  8. I have to say that this outfit reminds me of a movie segment where soldiers are getting ready for battle by installing all their accessories upon their uniform and you my friend look ready to do battle: against the crowds, parking, queueing, etc.. Fierce outfit for a fierce fight! haha
    Have a Great Monday!
