Splashes of colors! - Kids and what they do best


One full weekend gone and it was filled with a lot of fun, food and fizzy drinks! How was yours?

On the way out with the children last weekend, we took some pictures of my outfit of the day. I was wearing this summer sweater (love it!) and jeans in 2 contrast colors and I just threw on the thin scarf (very old and I often double it as sarong when on the beach) to spice up this outfit!  










:: Outfit ::

Summer sweater : Forever 21 (similar) (similar on sale)
Jeans : Forever 21 
Scarf : Splash
Shoes : Nine West
Bag : Balenciaga City
Bangles : Forever 21


We took the 4 children to iFly Dubai for them to experience their first ' human body flight'.  iFly Dubai is a place where you can experience flying in a tube of blastful air as if you were skydiving! This is the closet to skydiving/free-falling that they could experience, for now.  They had a lot of fun especially on their second flight when they went really high in the tube and experienced the fall!  Better than the roller-coaster!











And course when we get back, high on sugary fizzy drinks and dessert, the children started having fun again, this time with my scarfs, shades and camera playing Lawrence of Arabia! All the way I was freaking out especially when AD took my brand new Diane Von Furstenberg animal print scarf to play with!

    Did you not try the iFly?!?!?

    1. I was shopping in Forever 21 and was wearing that same jeans and when I piked the sweater and put it next to my face to see if the color suits my skin-tone, I noticed that my jeans matched the color of the sweater too, so, serendipity is that what you call it? ;D

    1. I think this is the closets to sky-diving anyone who is a bit nervous to free-fall from a flying aeroplane could have.. I highly recommend and since you are always with an instructor, there's little to be scared about..try it!
