The Palm

Spent friday out on a yacht around the Palm and Atlantis in Dubai on friday along with My family. Was lucky to get 24hrs with My mom and dad who flew in from Bangkok. Came back to Stockholm saturday afternoon after a horrendous flight with Norweigian- the turbulence was insane- though My time was up for the 7hrs of that trip- jag to go down in Copenhagen to refuel due to the strong head winds which made me miss My connection in Oslo. But now i am finally home for christmas and a couple of days before its time to head to the caribbean at the end of the week. Canx27t wait!!! Tumnagel

Dubai

Hello from Dubai! I spontaneously booked a flight here on sunday to see my sister and family before the christmas holidays. Ix27m only here for a couple of days before flying back to Sweden and then onwards for My winter vacation. But it is so nice to get a couple of quality days spent with la familia since we dont get to see each other too often. Managed to get a bit of shopping done- seriously Dubai has it all- and although Ix27m not a huge fan of malls- it is very convenient having everything under one roof- especially when that roof covers the second largest mall in the world. How nice are chanelx27s seasonal decorations having from the ceiling at mall of the emirates? Tumnagel

Woke up to sunshine here in Stockholm today too, which has been a rarity- time to back my suitcase and head to the Airport in a couple of hours Ix27m off to Dubai. Happy sunday! Tumnagel

AT THE DOLPHINARIUM

Gooooooood morning world ! Happy Easter :-) I know I promised to post pics from when we swam with the dolphins at our hotel in Dubai, so here you go ! This was not a once in a lifetime thing.. Ix27m def swimming with dolphins again :-) We had such a blast. My dolphin was named Bucker and he was the biggest dolphin they had there and bfx27s dolphin was E2. They were sooo sweet dancing with us when we sang x27I like to move it, move itx27 and waved at us when we left haha If you ever get the chance to swim with dolphins, do it ! :-) Tumnagel

THE GRASS IS GREENER

These shoes were my first purchase in Dubai. I for them at Bershka in Dubai Mall for.. wait for it.. 19 euros ! :-) The color is very much green peas/grass which will be perfect for spring summer. If I may say it myself, the color popped pretty nice in contrast with my skin color. Though Ix27m dark though, I think theyx27d go good for anyone with a with a tan :-) Tumnagel

My bed vs sunbed

One day we got a sunny spring day, the next day itx27s snowing ! Lol I had forgot about the mood swings of the Swedish weather Gods hehe Ix27m still in bed, enjoying the last minutes Ix27ve got left before I need to get up. I love Stockholm but on a day like this, I wouldnx27t mind being back on the sunbeds by the pool at Atlantis Palm, ordering banana milkshakes on repeat :-) Tumnagel

CLUTCH CASE

What du you guys think about my new iPad case that I got in Dubai ? It looks like a clutch and will be a perfect case for meetings. It didnx27t even cost much.. we bought at a market and I think it was like 8 euros. Ca-ching !! :-) Tumnagel

BANANAS

Having a banana milkshake in my banana yellow bikini. I finally managed to capture the color of my new bikini in pics. Bf told me itx27s the color of a perfectly mature banana so I think Ix27ll go with that description of the color :-) Besides the color of the bikini, have a look at how dark Ix27ve gotten ! I was like milk chocolate before, now Ix27m dark chocolate hehe Tumnagel

UNDER THE SUN

Yesterday was spent by the pool and after all these adventures, lunches, going back and forth to the malls etc we both needed it - big time. The weather was boiling hot though so I spent most of the time hanging in the pool, looking over the beautiful view and just enjoying being on the best holiday I could ever dream of :-) Today wex27ve been doing exactly the same thing since it was our last day at the hotel and in Dubai. Right now wex27re at the airport. Our flight actually doesnx27t leave until another three hours but we decided to check it out because we heard it HUGE (like everything else in Dubai haha) and because next time we get to Dubai, wex27ll most likely arrive at the new airport they are soon about to finish. And guess what - Dubai has the largest shopping mall in the world, it has the worldx27s tallest building and YES, the airport they are building will be the worldx27s biggest airport ! :-)d Tumnagel

SHOE-ICIDE

Introducing you to my biggest load of all. The one thing my mom couldnx27t stand when I was living at home. My shoe addiction ! Hehe Besides my shoe addiction, Ix27ve come to realize that I SUCK at packing. I always pack too much stuff, often being stuck with exceeding the baggage limit on my way back due to shopping. This time I brought eight pairs of shoes - sandals, heels and trainers included. Ix27m going back with 14 pairs. I never learn to not bring too many shoes ! Considering the fact that Ix27ve actually never been to one single city (that I can remember of, at least) without buying at least one pair of shoes, I should know better.. ! OH WELL !! I think I need to start selling some shoes off.. or throwing away. Some havenx27t been used in like forever.. Ix27ve packed everything into the suitcase and my carry-on and it seems to be just around the limit allowed. Luckily I have a bf whox27s really good at packing his own stuff effectively, not bringing too much stuff. Though he did quite a lot of shopping himself, he seems to have a few kilos left that I can fill up whoop whoop :-) Tumnagel

NEW IN: YELLOW

This is the latest rookie in my closet, bought it at New Yorker and the color is jest the yellow color Ix27ve always wanted for a bikini. I have another one but the color of that one is too much x27lemonx27. This is more like the color you would paint the sun when you were making drawings as a kid (haha that was my best way to make you guys understand !) The color is kind of hard to catch in this light but Ix27ll probably wear it for the pool today so Ix27ll post better pics soon. SO - today is our last day here ! Itx27s such a strange feeling really, for both of us. It does NOT feel like wex27ve been here for two weeks only. We have been in the hotel the longest now, so wex27ve seen people check in and check out so to us it feels like wex27ve been here for.. months ? And wex27ve done sooo many things in these two weeks that youx27d normally fit into a much longer period of time, I canx27t believe itx27s been only a month since I moved from Italy.. :-S Anyway; wex27re going downstairs to enjoy the delicious breakfast buffet now, then hit the sun beds and the pool ! xx S Tumnagel

DANCING FOUNTAINS

SUPER tired today. We spent the day in the sun, by the pool, and it was so hot, wex27re both exhausted now. After the chilling by the pool, we went to see The Dubai Fountain show in Burj Khalifa Lake, located just outside Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa, which was just b-r-e-a-t-h-t-a-k-i-n-g. Ok, I LOVE fireworks, love love love.. but this beats fireworks by miles ! Every half hour after 6PM until 11PM, this show starts where the fountains are moving stunningly in accordance with the song playing. Sometimes itx27s a pop kind of song, sometimes contemporary arabic (this is my favorite type of music for this show) and sometimes a bit up beat classic music.. but itx27s always a show to remember. If youx27re ever in Dubai, this is a must-see ! Still images donx27t do the show justice so Ix27ve filmed it so Ix27ll show it to you guys soon :-) Ix27m putting together another video that I did for our Chicago and New York trip, remember ? (Did you guys ever see the gorgeous Dubai Whitney Houston tribute ? THOSE ARE THE FOUNTAINS ! I literally cried throughout it - both because of her death, my very first idol ever, and because of how beautiful it was. It still gives me the chills.. If you havenx27t seen it, check it out here) Btw, Ix27ve been so busy updating on what wex27ve been up to here, Ix27ve forgotten to mention that tomorrow is our last day in Dubai. We have a night flight so we still get to spend the whole day in this beautiful city, but after that wex27ll be heading back to Stockholm ! Ix27m struggling with the packing right now.. I just made it to not exceede the baggage limit on our way here and I can just imagine how much overweight Ix27ll have on our way back.. :-/ I need to get back to getting all this stuff sorted now and then just crawl into bed :-) Nighty ! xx S Tumnagel

DESERT SAFARI

The adventure I was talking about before was a 7 hour trip in the desert. OMG - this was like.. I know it sounds very cliché by now, but it was really a dream come true. Ix27ve been to the desert before when I lived in Australia but Ix27ve never ridden a camel. Which we did yesterday ! :-) I was sitting in the front with bf in the back so I almost fell off the back of the camel as it was getting up from its sitting position haha besides the camel riding, we went for BUMPY but SO MUCH FUN rides in the sand dunes, we stopped to check out the sunset, sat on traditional carpets enjoying traditional Arabic food and had a belly dancer perform for us. Def recommend this experience to anyone visiting an Arabic country ! :-) Tumnagel

DUBAI OUTFIT DAY 10 - IN THE DESERT

This is the look that I rocked yesterday. I love this traditional UAE dress and apparently countless others also did as many approached me to tell me so :-) As you might understand, I bought this dress here in Dubai. The jewelry are a mix of brands, the watch from Michael Kors and the sandals (my favorite ones because that are hardly ever noticed because they are in clear plastic) are from Ipanema Gisele Bündchen. More pics from the day are coming up soon :-) xx S Tumnagel

BURJ KHALIFA - THE WORLD'S TALLEST BUILDING

So yesterday we started off the morning by visiting Burj Khalifa which is the worldx27s tallest building. To those of you who have been to the Empire State Building - this is twice as high ! Ridiculously high in other words. We went up the lift til the 124th floor and were just stunned by the view looking over the coast line and skyscrapers of Dubai. As you can probably tell from my previous Dubai posts, also this was a little but too much of everything hehe But I love a country that pushes boundaries to reach higher goals and wow people :-) LIKE ! Later on, Ix27ll let you know about the big adventure we went on after this ! :-) xx S Tumnagel

IN MY SHOPPING BAG

So herex27s some stuff that I got at Mango lately. Ix27ll for sure use all things A LOT this summer. The shoes are probably the ones Ix27ll use most - Ix27m loving neat heels right now ! Too bad I wonx27t be able to use them in Sweden yet because of the snow (is there still snow in Sweden peeps ? I heard you got spring now but you never know when the snow has a fallback there hehe). And the yellow card holder speaks for itself - SUPER EASY to spot in your handbag when itx27s full of other stuff ! haha Tumnagel

NEW IN: CELINE X 2

Let me introduce you to my new found loves. Ok, one of them isnx27t a new found love really. There is a long love story to go with me and these shoes.. here it goes: Ok, I first saw these shoes seasons ago. Ix27m not completely sure (I canx27t find pics on Google to confirm) but I believe theyx27re from the Celine spring or fall 2010 collection. I fell in love with them the minute I laid eyes on them and to be completely honest, they had never ever left my heart really. Whenever Ix27ve been walking into stores where they sell Celine, Ix27ve always hoped for these shoes to stand there waiting for me, even when they were seasons old, too old to even be on sale still. True story. Anyway. I walk into one store after another at the Dubai Outlet Mall yesterday and I walk into a store that isnx27t one Ix27d normally walk into. Since bf is around looking in menx27s stores I decide to have a look at their shoes selection in the meantime to see if therex27s even one thing that would at least catch my eye. I see a few cool DSquared heels and then I see a Celine shoe that I recognized, though I didnx27t want that particular model so I kept looking at bags instead.. Bf comes in and I show him this bag that I found and with a big smile Ix27m telling him that Ix27m loving the retro style with the big logo (which I normally donx27t like at all !) and that Ix27m getting it for myself. Ix27m heading towards the cashier and thatx27s when I see this shoe in the window ! I literally ran there to grab the shoe and 1. rub my eyes to see if itx27s actually THAT shoe 2. look at the size of it to then get too excited and instead just think that I donx27t have time to check the size and decide to try it on directly instead haha ! I am not a very patient person at times.. It was a bit tight, but you bet that IT FIT :-D And as I am walking around in the store in my new found loves for a few minutes, explaining how much Ix27ve loved these shoes to bf, I see another pair of these exact shoes and guess what ? They were one size bigger ! So in other words, I had found the shoe love of my life AND they were in the two different sizes that I prefer to try before deciding which one to go with AND I found them on sale ! I literally kissed the shoe and my bf just stood there staring at me, thinking he got himself a real crazy shoe addict as a girlfriend ! haha :-P I donx27t know if you truly get this shopping miracle but to me, this beats all my past finds whoop whoop Tumnagel

BURJ AL ARAB - THE VIEW

So yesterday we went back to the 7 star hotel for lunch. Not so much for the food, but for the view that we missed out on during dinner last time we were there, due to the darkness at night. This spot probably has the best view in town looking over the coast line and Palm Jumeirah, the first man made island ever which is also where our hotel is located. You could actually see our hotel at the top of the palm from our seats at the restaurant. Pretty sick ! But you know whatx27s the sickest part of all ?? You could see The World. The World is a new group of man made islands since 2008, that are actually shaped after the continents of the world !! And the idea is that people can buy a x27countryx27 of their own in The World between the prices of 10-45 million USD.. not bad huh ? :-) We actually saw a motorboat go there as we were having lunch.. it took about 15-20 minutes from the mainland to The World. Imagine being able to escape the real world to x27your own countryx27 hehe Speaking of escaping.. today wex27re escaping our hotel and the city for another dream adventure. Can you guess what ? xx S Tumnagel

BEST OUTLET SHOPPING E.V.E.R

Dubai Outlet Mall - that will probably be my first stop next time wex27re in Dubai. As in almost all outlets, there was a lot of crap, but then there were those precious bits and pieces that make the struggle of going all the way to the outlet, worth it. Herex27s a sneak peek of what I got today. Tomorrow Ix27ll let you why I never thought Ix27d get my hands on whatx27s in the shoe box ! :-) Tumnagel

Yesterday I swam with dolphins !! The most beautiful animal there is <3 Got to kiss, hug, dance and play with them. Ix27ve ALWAYS wanted to swim with dolphins so I was, and still am, on such a high after :-) I got more pictures from when I rode the belly of the dolphin and from the kisses and hugs :-) Today wex27re going for lunch and A VIEW !! Youx27ll get what I mean later when you see the post from the day. xx S Tumnagel

FREEDOM

Ix27m kind of getting used to waking up to our view looking over the never ending Persian Gulf. I love the sea. Itx27s so big, beautiful to look at and itx27s like itx27s got itx27s own life going on non stop.. get what I mean ? I could sit at our balcony for hours and just stare out.. My dream is to one day own a boat. Not a big one, just the size so you can go out for a picnic in the water with family and friends or just like take a break from the city life, go out on the water, turn some music on (Ix27m thinking this song) and lie there in the sun. Ahh, my heart just skipped a beat... one day ! :-) Tumnagel

AQUAVENTURE

We had such a wonderful day yesterday !!! The weather was so warm and clear (the past two days have been a bit foggy) though it was pretty windy. But it was all good with cooling breezes in the heat :-) We started off by taking a swim by the beach at a new spot. We had the boogie drivers drive us along the beach and found this beautiful little place. Nice huh ? Then bf had a session of swimming and dancing with dolphins and afterwards we went to the Aquaventure, the waterpark of the hotel which is like.. I canx27t really tell how big it is because itx27s just like a big jungle of water slides through shark tanks (!!!!!!), waterfalls, tunnels, palm trees, sun beds and cafés. Once again, we kept getting lost haha Ix27d say that the size of it is at least a couple of football fields ! We had a blast there so wex27re going back today. But first, Ix27m going to swim with dolphins !!!!!!!!!! Whoop whoop Now; breakfast !! Tumnagel

DUBAI OUTFIT DAY 6 - BURJUMAN CENTRE

Yesterday we went to a mall named BurJuman centre to visit the Celine store which they later told us they had shut down.. :-( The mall isnx27t one wex27ll probably go back to, itx27s a bit far from where we are staying but it was very pretty inside ! I wore a tee by All Saints men, waxed jeans by Zara, heels by Australian shoe store Zu, fringe bag by American Eagle and watch by Michael Kors. Tumnagel

AL MUNTAHA @ BURJ AL ARAB

So last night we went for THE DINNER of our trip. The restaurant, Al Muntaha, is located on the 27th floor of the worldx27s one and only 7 star hotel, Burj al Arab. As far as the food goes.. it was good, I mean, I hadnx27t eaten all day so I ATE A LOT haha, but Ix27d say wex27ve both had better before. But it was like more about the experience, which was awesome. Can you imagine that we drank 24 carat gold dust ?? haha I guess therex27s a first time for everything ! The sommelier came to our table and prepared the drink for us which was pretty cool. And in the end, I got a rose from our waiter which was kinda sweet hehe The hotel in itself is VERY MUCH, just like much else here in Dubai. All the gold you can see inside this hotel is actually 24 carat gold, how insane is THAT ?! :-) Tumnagel
