Life Lately #9

Wow I did not take enough pictures this week. I mean really there is about 50 photos of Mate, Yalla and Zulu and about 5 of other things. It was just one of those weeks I guess. I still wanted to make the post so here goes..

1. A lovely little dinner party with my favorite ladies Laura and Simone. There was food, a lot of loud laughing and all around midweek merriment. I am so so grateful and happy I have found these people in the sandpit as I dont think Dubai is the easiest place to make friends. Acquaintances sure but friends not so much. As usual I urge you to take a look at Simones super awesome vlog to get a glimpse of this festivity.

2. I had a work lunch at Eataly in Dubai mall. I have passed the place many times but never made it in. Well I almost fainted once I saw the cheese selection. It didn't feel right to go full on cheese shopping crazy at that time but I will so be back. They make their own mozzarella to top it all off! Italian food is high up of my favorite cuisines list so Im excited to go back and try out some more items on their menu.

3. Whats your favorite item to buy when sale season hits? One of mine is pretty bedding and I'm a huge fan of West Elm. Zara home does some beauuutiful bedding as well but sales at West Elm are always way better. I have gotten into a habit of picking up at least one set ever sale and this time was no different. Love the ikat pattern set I got for 50% off! The furry accessories on the bed are priceless.

4.-6. The bottom row of pictures are all taken yesterday at a new pop up style Surfers Market I had the pleasure to be part of. Surf House Dubai is such a cool place with a great vibe and I was excited to take part of the market with my sisters New Vintage by Kriss jewelery. There was loads of other  vendors. I especially loved the super cool yoga gear by HotBoxKit and beautiful pom pom trimmed beach and lounge wear by Nikki Vass. I came home with a few pretties and the white crop top is my favorite. I think this is a beginning of a pompom mania for me. Already searching for more pieces with that detail.

Thats it. I promise to be better this week although today marks the beginning of holy month Ramadan and life in Dubai slows down remarkably.

Hope you are having a lovely Sunday!


  1. Sounds like a lovely week, I know what you mean about finding friends in Dubai...I have plenty acquaintances now to turn some into friends :-) I'm sorry to have missed the market (i'm only up the road) but was so tired after my flight getting in at 7am. I had my eyes on the Coco earrings...will need to make an online order :-) xx

    p.s. we bought some West Elm bedding too....can't resist their sales.

    1. Hi Steph! There will surely be more markets after Ramadan :)

      Oh and no need to order online as sending it here is a bit of a hassle. I have plenty of stock left with me including light blue,pastel pink and smokey quartz Cocos (cant remember by heart might have a few more). We can meet during the weekend and I show you what I have :) And if you want a color I dont have atm Im going back to Estonia soon and can bring some. X

  2. Ha! Snap! my phone is full of pictures of my dog this week! and not very much else (you'll see later when I put my post up!)

    You can tell you lot really get along together in the vlog and I can imagine that Dubai is quite a difficult place to make real friends. When you're all together it reminds me of me of my friends and the silly things we get up to!

    Have a great week Laura! :)
