Back in the UAE

Hello and welcome to the fabulous life of me πŸ™‚

I am back in the UAE and boy have I missed this place.

It was a completely different experience exiting the airport and being able to breatheπŸ˜‚

If anyone of you heard my first time arriving in Dubai story you would understand my relief πŸ™ˆ

I wasn’t able to breathe, it was scorching hot at around 3am when I arrived for the very first time. The heart of summer. Being the dramatic person I am, I panicked and hyperventilated 😭 it wasn’t the best experience.

I did however manage to learn the technique of breathing here eventually πŸ˜‚ summer is just unbearable and I’m so happy that it’s winter now, which can be best described as a normal South African summer experience lol because it doesn’t get cold here πŸ˜‚ at all…

Dubai is a beautiful city but I do not live there πŸ’ I live in Sharjah, which is also one of the emirates of the UAE. The culture mainly revolves around the religion of Islam and traditional arab culture.

However, Islamic dress code is not compulsory, but they do expect a level of modest dress πŸ’­ The dress code is actually part of criminal law πŸ™Š

But that doesn’t matter because I do not mind covering up and I have this recent obsession with the abaya styles in the UAE 😍 and I could not resist! This is my favourite abaya.


The design, fabric and fit is incredible. This is currently my “go to” and “oh I’m so late” outfit πŸ™ˆ you just can not go wrong with this and just the way it covers up is perfect for any muslimah❀️

Don’t think I don’t have clothesπŸ˜‚ I am just in love 😍😜

So, I am back, and I really want to make the most of embracing the arab culture and learn to speak a little bit of Arabic πŸ˜„ it’s times like this when I kick myself for not paying attention in Arabic class 😜 5 years and nothing to show for it 😭 well, I can read and writeπŸ˜‚

This was basically just a random post to test out picture uploading on the blog which was suggested by my readers πŸ™‚ so if this works you can be expecting visuals πŸ˜‚

Learning is compulsory, life is full of lessons and I am all for it πŸŽ“

Wish me good luck!
