Goodbye 2011….Welcome 2012!

Standard

  

  Another year has passed so fast as a blink of an eye, taking with it events that marked our lives in one way or another, either good or bad it’s all just memories from now on. This past year was one of trial and changes, but as everything is left behind now we can just hope for a new year that will be better from any point of view. Many plans, a huge wish list is already made for 2012 but above all one wish is more strong than any other one: health for everyone .

    Don’t you think time goes by so fast that you can’t even realize when another year is gone?! Everything is so strange,  like in a dream it seems like yesterday was last New Year’s Eve and now 12 months later we are preparing again to count backwards the moments till a new chapter of life starts.

     My husband and I, wish you all a Happy New Year, that will be full of health, happiness, good experiences, changes and many accomplishments, but no matter what shall happen don’t ever forget….. EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON!

     Goodbye old 2011……Welcome new 2012!

     Happy New Year!

Dubai Creek Park

Standard

   In winter parks in UAE are highly appreciated and seen as an excellent way to relax in weekends since everyone is looking to get out and spend a day outdoors enjoying the fresh air,the reviving smell of grass, a barbecue and spending valuable time with their family members after a stressful week at work.

   Although Dubai has numerous parks a huge number of people prefer to spend their day outdoor at Dubai Creek Park, due to the fact that it is creating a splendid harmony between the blue water of the creek,the blue sky of Dubai and the green nature across it.Golf course,picnic areas, barbecue pits and games for kids along with other facilities for both adults and children are available here.

  But what we love the most at this park is the fact that we can spend such a lovely day outside,interacting with others while a great meal is prepared….and the sunset over the creek, oh! the sunset offers such great relaxing view and opportunity for photography lovers.

    If I made you curious enough and you want to visit it you need to know that is open  from 8 am to 11 pm from Sunday to Wednesday and until 11.30 pm in weekends (Thursday-Saturday); also the entry ticket costs 5 dirham/person.


Dubai dancing fountain

Standard

   From all seven emirates that form United Arab Emirates, Dubai is in my opinion the only one that offers its inhabitants endless number of choices when you talk about relaxing  or places where to spend and enjoy your free time.

  But from all Dubai’s attractions, the most breathtaking of all, that attracts thousands of people to see it, is Dubai’s dancing fountain that is located in front of three  most exquisite locations in the world: Burj Khalifah, Souq al Bahar and Dubai Mall.

  The Dubai Fountain comes alive each evening, offering a sound and light show accompanying an elaborate watery performance. You will be given the chance to enjoy the most unique experience as you watch the Dubai fountain dance to stirring musical pieces from powerful Italian classics and renowned Arabic compositions to Bollywood favourites and beautiful African rhythms.

    It’s absolutely free to watch, and most visitors do so by the sides of the lake, with the Burj Khalifa looming impressively in the background.

New bridal hijab styles 2012!

Standard

    As the new year is approaching trends also change, so I thought it would be nice to share with you the latest trends when we talk about Muslim brides. I chose only the pictures with the styles that I absolutely love and wouldn’t hesitate to wear, because this year is all about accessorizing and being glamorous.

    Hope you like it girls!
