Because my cousin had come to visit from Canada, we really wanted to make a trip to Dubai; it was one of those so close but yet so far away type of moments lol but we didn’t want to stay any nights and do all the hotel shizness etc etc. so we were in limbo about going or not. Come Thursday after school, Shaheer decided to check flights and lo and behold they were uber reasonable and crazy times but we figured why not! Made a few phone calls to the others about leaving that very night to spend legit a day in Dubai and be back the next day lol et voila!
Of course Iman and I had to make a trip to the mall to pick up a few things (I wanted to get a backpack..!) , but we got home, took a nap, and left at around 2am for the airport! –side note: I don’t think you’ve been introduced to Iman yet, shes the pretty little thang in most of my Kuwait pictures this year lol and just might be replacing Shaheer as my photog 😉 mish you! xx
Anyhow, we made our way to the Dubai Mall at around 6am-ish which was lovely as no one was out; we had all the space and time in the world to just roam and take pictures and be silly. The boys headed up the Burj whilst Iman and I ‘window shopped’ lol but we really just spent the day hanging out and eating! Made a trip to Jumeirah Beach where we napped due to utter exhaustion, then headed back to the mall to see the musical fountains. The fountains are definitely one of my happy places; they literally make your heart smile and if you take a look at everyones faces around you, it makes you smile even harder and just stand there in aw like wow 😮 x
Made it back to Kuwait and knocked out for a wonderful sleep lol and essentially just packed as I was leaving for Canada the next day (where I currently am!). My granny’s not been well for a while now and hospitalized a number of times so I needed to go just to be with her and family x Please keep her in your prayers! xx
My blog game and my insta have been dying as opposed to last year, but there’s just been so much going on in terms of school and life and family I can’t find the time to just sit and write. My laptop situation remains the same so haven’t had as much access as I’m used to but Inshallah I will make time soon! x It’s nice being back home for a bit, cold, oh so cold! but everyones into the holiday spirit and Christmas songs and colors which you don’t get in Kuwait so its kind of nice! My brother and sister have had their assignments lined up for ‘help’ lol and a list of meals they request be made prior to my leaving, but everyone seems much more busier with school and work I’ve hardly seen them. My gran is over the moon that I’ve come though so we’ve been hanging which makes it all worthwhile!
Hope all y’all are well and for those who keep up with the blog muchos gracias and much love!xx
