Saturday evening in Dubai

Yesterday I was supposed to meet up with some friends at the mall after my workout, so I brought my new red jumper & sweatpants and some comfy slippers… I love dressing comfy for the mall haha! But we changed our plans at the last minute and ended up going to a nice beach club at Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach Hotel instead. Usually I would have dressed up a bit, going to such a nice venue, but hey, what’s wrong with casual as long as you can do it with a...

Ladies Day at Nikki Beach

If you’re from Dubai then you already know that Tuesday is officially LADIES DAY pretty much anywhere you go… Meaning females get discounts, complimentary food & drinks or free entrance.

How To Be Happy

At 21, I was diagnosed with work related stress and anxiety. It was the lowpoint of my life, and I’ll never forget how it feels not being able to get out of bed for days and weeks and crying uncontrollably, for no apparent reason, on a daily basis. I wasn’t technically depressed (at least I have never been diagnosed with depression) but for years (and sometimes still to this day) my life felt like I was balancing on the edge of falling deep into the darkness. From time to time,...
