Favorite Restaurants in Dubai

I often get questions about where to go, what to do and where to eat when visiting Dubai. That is why I decided to make a list of some of my favorite restaurants.

Zuma: My absolute No 1 favorite restaurant here in Dubai. They serve top notch Japanese cuisine. I absolutely love this place. The food is fantastic and the ambiance is great.
One of my favorite dishes is the Black Cod. Even though I normally don’t eat fish, I actually do at this place and really enjoy it! That should tell you how good the food is!

Roberto’s: An Italian fine dining restaurant with a great atmosphere. I love Italian food so I always get a starter, main and dessert at this place. I like that they have orange trees in the restaurant, which makes the place cozier.

Pierchic: This restaurant is perfect to go to if you want to take someone special out for a romantic dinner.This seafood restaurant is located at the end of a pier, which gives you an over-the-water experience. The view from there is breathtaking. You also have a nice view of Burj Al Arab from there. If you are like me and don’t like seafood, they also have nice vegetarian alternatives.

Ravi: A very simple Pakistani restaurant with fantastic food. Apparently they are in Lonely Planet so it’s always packed. The food is a delight. Try the Ginger Chicken and Chicken cubes. So delicious that just writing about it makes me hungry.

Iranzamin: Iranian restaurant located in the Marina. I love the Koobideh here and on Fridays they have a dish called Tarchin which is yummy. Not the best place to go to if you are on a carb free diet though.

Smiley BBK: A thai-restaurant that offers great food for a good price. Don’t forget to order the Sweet Sticky Rice with Coconut Milk and Mango. It’s out of this world delicious. You can order dishes called Another One Bites The Dust or The Name’s Bond, James Bond.

I hope you enjoy these kind of posts! Which restaurant is your favorite? Please comment and let me know!

Hello September

 

Hello September! I have plans for you! You and I will have a lot of fun together and I will start this month by making a change in my life. I believe that our thoughts are the most powerful thing that we have. But my thoughts have been occupied with some distracting things lately, which have been taking a lot of energy from me. I remember Oprah once said, “what you focus on expands and what you give your attention to gets bigger. This is exactly what I have been doing. I have been giving these thoughts and feelings too much attention, more than they deserve actually. However today I decided to say goodbye to them and get back in control, and that is exactly what I’m doing.

Sorry, got a little bit personal but now, let’s get to yesterdays outfit.
I was wearing
Gina Tricot Jeans & Top
Zara Shoes

Hi,
Just got home from dinner with my brother and now I need to go to bed so I’m keeping it short.
I was wearing

Forever 21 Jumpsuit ( in stores now)
Chanel Shoes
Bottega Veneta Bracelet ( new color here)

Good Night and Sweet Dreams Everyone!

What’s in my Bag?

I emptied my bag to clean it but then I got this idea that I would show you guys what’s in it.
If you haven’t noticed already the two main things are missing. Keys and wallet!
Well the thing is that I actually forgot my keys and my wallet in Sweden. I know what you are thinking. Who forgets those things? Well I did. Remember last week when I was going to a cocktail party? It was a great party with lots of cocktails and a lot of fun. The day after though, was not as fun. So while packing, in a less fantastic shape, I managed to forget some important things. I have been without them for a week now but luckily I have friends who will travel back tonight so they will bring those things with them.

Anyhow, this is what I actually do have in my bag:

Perfume: I always have a perfume in my bag. Always! One of my favorite fragrances at the moment is Oscar de la Renta’s Flor. I’m on my second bottle now. Nice memories are connected to this scent so I’m sticking to it for a while.
Sunglasses: In Dubai you can’t go anywhere without a pair of sunglasses. These pink ones are from LeSpecs.
Hand Cream: I got this new L’Occitane hand cream and it’s fantastic and smells lovely. The size is perfect for traveling or just to have in a small handbag.

Lip Balm: This one from Rituals, keeps the lips in good shape.

Lip Pen: Mac Soar, one of my favorite colors, which is so hard to get now days since apparently Kylie Jenner is using it. So unfortunately it’s always sold out.

Lip Gloss: From Face in color Fanatic. I never used to wear lip-gloss until the make up artist who did my make up for the wedding introduced me to it. I have been using it since, it gives the perfect amount of shine without being too smudgy.

Blush: This one from H&M in color Rosy Brown. Love this color.

Bon Bons: You can’t have too much of those. Also great to have in case you feel like kissing someone.

A Notebook: I know most people use their phones for notes these days. I do that too in situations when no pen and paper is around, but mostly I prefer to right things down. My brother always says I only use 10 % of my phones functions. I admit I’m not great with technology. Kind of old fashioned I guess.

I’m Back

I’m baaaaack!

I hope you all had a great summer. I ‘m back in Dubai after a whole month in Stockholm. A lot has been happening lately which is why I felt like taking a break from blogging, but now I’m back and it feels great.

Those of you who follow me on Instagram know that I got married this summer. I might do a blog post about that later on. But now let me tell you about todays outfit. I got this dress from Forever 21, unfortunately it seems like they don’t have it online but you can find it in stores.
