Henna design and Dessert Safari

24 Apr

In the land of desserts there is always something fun to do if you are free. Last month during my parents visit to UAE I took them around and showed them everything possible. Dessert safari is one of the must do things if you are visiting UAE. Dessert ride, night camp, camel riding, falcon holding,bike riding are fun and also belly dance and traditional Tanura dance are worth watching. Camp site has this fun things to do like trying out traditional Arab cloths and clicking photos and Henna design. I am a big Henna lover, even though I manage nail designs Henna design is something I am not good at. Here is the picture of Henna design from dessert safari camp, it took hardly 10 seconds for the lady to create this design on my hand. Henna Design

I am into closed sandals, when I am not in a mood for pedicure and toe nails are not painted its easy way to hide it 🙂 I wanted this right away and my husband bought these for me. Original price is  somewhere around 89 AED and I got it for 49 AED.

Diwali Gift

21 Nov

Diwali GiftNovember fist week is Diwali week, usually we celebrate it for 4 days. Diwali is festival of lights, celebrated in India. Fist day fill water in big copper vessels make design on them and entire night heat the water in those big vessels by using traditional old way of heating things with wood. Next day early morning oil massage and nice hot water bath. Then in the night celebrate Diwali with crackers. Lot of gifts sweets and special lunch and dinner for 4 days. I remember celebrating Diwali in my childhood with cousins for more than a week, until stock of fire crackers was over. But nowadays its hard to celebrate Diwali when you are away from homeland. But still I try to follow the old tradition. This time I got this simple but beautiful gift from my husband. Red basket ( in which I decided to keep my pen drives and memory cards safe! at least now I don’t have to search for these things for hours  ) a cream color full sleeved top with skull and rose prints and 2 set of cute little scented colorful candles ( which I couldn’t use for Diwali because I can’t burn beautiful cute candles 🙂 )
