Dubai Part 1

We arrived in Dubai late Thursday night and it has been fantastic as the moment we stepped into the hotel, we have been treated like royalty. I guess this is the way in Dubai, as service is unparalleled. Checking in at 2am, we were brought fresh passion fruit juice and hand towels as we waited in the lobby and had a staff of 4 looking after us. Our first day, we were quite lazy and spent the day sleeping in then lounging at he beach. The only unfortunate event is that there is a sandstorm this weekend. Dubai has a sandstorm once or twice a year as the season changes, and it is disappointing as we can’t see too much. We are here for Work though, and it is warm,so I can’t complain too much.

Last night we went to a dinner party at a house belonging to an associate of Dragan’s, and wow, it was a treat. They have a villa on Palm Dubai with a pool and their own private beach, and it was laid back and exquisite at the same time. I met some great girls, and three were from Geneva…..small world……and I was able to wear my red Hervé Léger dress that I’ve been waiting to wear for a year. We were overdressed but I didn’t care. 🙂

Today we are taking it easy again as there was a fire last night in Dubai that makes us not want to go to the Marina. I believe we are going to Atlantis now and we have dinner with more people tonight. I hope the sand clears some so we can get some more experiences and pictures to share with you all! For those who are wondering, Dubai is super safe, and did you know, only local consist of only 11% of Dubai’s population. The rest are expatriates. It’s crazy! It feels a bit like Miami, mixed with Las Vegas, mixes with Disney World, and you lack for nothing. Follow me on Instagram for updated pics!! ❤️❤️❤️

Valentine’s Lips and My Favorite Accessories!

IMG_2946

Hello! Does anyone have any big plans for Valentine’s Day?? I know I did a post already, but I really love this Holiday, and wanted to do another showing my favorite lipstick colors to wear, as well as a few accessories and gift ideas. I even did a little video lipstick tutorial on creating the perfect red lip. I love Valentine’s because there are flowers and chocolate everywhere (who DOESN’T love that) and because it’s nice to have an incentive to go a little further into showing our loved ones how we feel. Yes, we should do it everyday, but I’m a romantic, and I like to be spoiled (even if I’m spoiling myself) and I LIKE it, dag gone it. 🙂

So, I don’t wear too much makeup, as you can see above where I’m wearing tinted moisturizer, blush and chapstick, but I LOVE lipstick, and I love bright, look at me lipstick. I have 5 different combinations to show you. Read more

Hey Everyone! Dad—Be warned–This is a Girly post. 🙂 Most women are thinking about Valentine’s Day that is coming this weekend, be it negatively or positively.

Getting Organized

IMG_2518

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a great day and feeling fantastic as we sail into the middle of our week.
I’m a pretty organized person, but I tend to keep track of it all in my head, so I wanted to get a planner to help me keep track on PAPER. Paper…….that illusive object we hardly ever use anymore, as we hold everything we need in our smartphone……but that I find suits my mind much more. I find it soothing to write things in paper and I enjoy pretty patterns and beautifully colored pens. I really enjoy browsing through luxe paper stores, as I appreciate the attention to detail as well as the effort to making ordinary things beautiful! After some searching, I have found the perfect planner and they come from Erin Condren.

Although she offers many products, I chose to buy a Life Planner on her website I cannot begin to explain how wonderful these organizers are to own!!! Packed with all you need as well as an array of additions such as stickers and extra notepads, personalized monograms, gift cards and inspirational quotes. I LOVE it!
I love how pretty it is and how excited I feel to pull it out in public, as I customized mine with a wedding photo on the back, as well as sitting down to plan over a cup of coffee! I’m enamored with writing in my notepad with as it is lined with flowers and has my name on across the top, and I can’t express how freeing it feels to be organized and have all my notes, addresses, events and plans in one spot!

Check out Erin Condren! You will feel so special when it arrives at your door in stunning packaging, I promise you won’t regret it!

Let me know if you have one already or if you like the different patterns on her website! Shop Here!

Dressing for the Cold…Snow Day 2

IMG_2201

Yesterday was full of snow, and we definitely made the most of it! I’m glad I was able to pull out my full ski gear for a few hours of romping around in Divonne. We decided to stay in the area as the roads were still bad and it was still snowing all day, so we took Jasper up to the chateau to play! I love going to the chateau b/c we typically have the place to ourselves and we can always get a hot chocolate inside if it gets too cold. I love that the hotel doesn’t mind us taking advantage of the stunning grounds. Read more

Is it Raining or Snowing on the Alps?

Good morning to all of my American friends. 🙂 It’s just after noon here and today is one of those rainy but freezing days where you just want to rain to become snow, as that would be much more pleasant. I can’t seem to motivate myself to go do much other than take Jasper out. I had hoped to ski today, but not in this……! ( Read more
