Dear Diary: All I Want For Christmas…

YIPEE! We finally got our Christmas tree! We were going back and forth between the idea of buying a real one of a fake. I have never owned a fake tree, but living in Dubai, it kind of made sense to buy one! My husband and I somehow have never had one the whole time we have […] Read more…

Review: Dubai Christmas Festival 2012

I know, I know…it was the first one ever put on, but the line up to get in at 4:30pm was INSANE. Literally over a hundred people standing in line, not even sure which line to get in to, everyone completely confused!  It was mayhem to say the least! Eventually one of the staff came […] Read more…
