So sorry about the extreme overuse of this location... I will try to make my post more interesting next time - I promise...

New shoes

Here are the three pairs of shoes I purchased during my stay in Dubai - all three I purchased on sale...As you may or may not have noticed, I have been in desperate need of new shoes for some time now. Brisbane has the poorest selection of shoes and so I never really purchase any while I am here and I am also somewhat apprehensive about how the sizing will turn out upon buying shoes online and so these three pairs were much needed...
1. Stella Mcartney glass heel sandals - I have been admiring these heels for some time now but was so very surprised to find these in store as I felt they were fairly popular and also from a couple of seasons ago... although they only had a single pair left and in my size too... So I suppose at times having large feet has its benefits too!... I cannot wait to take these out for a spin...
2. Jimmy Choo studded sandals - a basic pair of sandals for summer, mainly for Uni wear
3. Stella Mcartney heels - I felt drawn to their their clean, chic and minimal design as soon as I saw them...

The lower floors of the hotel are built into the sea and are filled with aquariums that have some of the most delightful creatures such as lion fish, sharks, rays and my personal favourite, jellyfish...

The view from my balcony - in the daylight you can see sharks and rays swimming around in that water...

While we were in Dubai, we stayed at a delightful hotel/resort called The Atlantis. It was built upon an artificial Island in the middle of the sea and half of built and submerged in the deep sea. Besides it being beautiful, my favourite thing about it were all the aquatic activities it offered such as scuba diving and swimming with Dolphins, Sharks and Rays. And so the majority of our time in Dubai was divvied up between either shopping or doing activities at the hotel...

Here I am just before taking a dip in the pool. I am wearing an Alexander Wang dress I purchased here in Dubai.

Some of my favourite ceilings in the hotel...

A better picture of my new Alexander Wang dress and I - I cannot wait to wear it back home where it is winter and layer it better...
My favourite breakfast restaurant - In it there are 15 or so different food counters like these, allowing you to eat just about any kind of food you could want...My personal favourites - the chocolate fountain and rainbow noodles...

A simple outfit I wore out shopping - so simple that I was contemplating over whether or not to post it...

I've been meaning to post more often but I've just been so busy. I intended to get some decent shopping done in Dubai but just about any decent potentially likeable clothing item has been by your mainstream luxury high enders like Givenchy, YSL, Celine, Chanel etc. and so have been excessively expensive...But fortunately there are fairly decent end of season sales on and so I have been able to make a few purchases which I probably spent more on than I have spent in the entire last 6 months combined (although thanks to my parents who were surprisingly generous on this trip:) )... I can't wait to share them with you soon! Below are some pictures way back from our second day in Abu Dhabi (before we came to Dubai) - It was so incredibly hot that we resorted to capturing outfit photographs on our balcony rather than in the infernal desert outdoors....
Tasfia is wearing: Friedrich Gray dress, Camilla skovgaard shoes.
Breakfast is my new favourite meal...

Our hotel from the front...I've been informed that this is apparently the hotel from the Sex & the City 2 movie. T'was so pretty.
