OKAY.LET.ME.SINK.IT.ALL.IN. MY LAST BLOG POST WAS IN JUNE?! And I KNOW, I was not consistent before that because of ALL wedding stress/mess I was going through because let me tell you ladies, planning a wedding is NOT.EASY. Anywho, with all that being said… HHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOO 222222222000000001111888888888!!!!! OH MY GOODNESS. NEW YEAR NEW ME HUH? I really, REALLY hope so because I need to get BACK on my game, and hit it HARD Inshallah (God Willing). Because there is SO much to be done and accomplished.
SO! How are all of you beautiful ladies doing?! Goodness, I REALLY missed writing. I really did. I am not going to be a grandma, and go back in time and mention all the reasons why I haven’t been up to date on my blog, but I am going to apologize. I know, I have been receiving emails, Instagram DMs, and FB messages and I HAVE replied to them (so you cannot hold me accountable for that!). So ladies, I do apologize for not being active here and my goal is to again get BACK on it ❤
Well, how is the New Year treating everyone so far? I hope Inshallah (God Willing) it is going GREAT for everyone, and I pray all of you achieve what your hearts desire within this year <3. How about me you ask? Well…not bad. Alhamdulilah (Thank God). Those who are actively active on my Instagram page see what I have been up to (and if you’re not get hip!). I am just trying to get some work related things together, balancing my life out AND planning some good things for you all Inshallah (God Willing). So yup! I have been juggling looooooots of things, but I ain’t complaining.
As many of you know, I was not here for NYE. It’s been on my bucket list to go to Dubai for NYE, and thats where I was<3. I have been to the U.A.E. many times, but NYE was always that oooone thing I really wanted to experience. I was beyond anxious and impatient to see the fireworks live in front of the Burj-Khalifa and my face lighting up like a little kid with excitement ooohing and aaaahing. Unfortunetly, this year there were no fire works 😦 but instead (since its Dubai, and you’ll NEVER be disappointed) they had a light show, “Light Up 2018”. Which was VERY different, and VERY fun. There was live entertainment, fresh foods, drinks, teas, a open ground filled with people gathered around the Burj-Khalifa enjoying their night away.
Time flew by very quickly, we walked (my husband and I) in to the entrance of the Dubai Fountain at 7pm, found the perfect place and view to sit, and literally danced the night away! I wish I could speak into this post, because I had the time of my life Alhamdulilah (Thank God). So I am reallyyyy emphasizing in this post so you ladies can get a feel of how amazing this experience was to me. The Light UP show was SO loud, that the beat of each laser was hitting into my veins (like how fireworks give you that very strong thump feeling inside your body). Thats honestly the BEST way I can describe it to you all. At the same time, I was thinking about how all the years I would come with my family that I kept telling myself one day I will come with my spouse and experience our “first” NYE in Dubai, and Subhanallah (Glory be to God) it happened. So I was having lots of emotional moments here and there at the time, and kept thanking my husband for bringing me where I always wanted to come for NYE (I love you).
I would love to know how everyones New Years went? Anything special? Anything different? Please feel free to share with me ❤ Before I end this post, what I will be doing is posting the places to be visited while in Dubai, because my Instagram DM was filled with you all asking me about all the hot spots, etc. So yes, I will be sharing that with you all, not to worry! Sharing is caring, cannot get greedy now right? ❤
I love you all SO much, and thank you SO much for always supporting me in all of this ❤
