One Day In Dubai....

This was supposed to be published last night, but then I got busy, and soon it was 2 am Indian time. Actually, this post is over 2 months late! Remember?
On our way to Newcastle, we decided to stop in Dubai for a day. Mr.CZ & I both regretted that we did not extend another day, because we felt a few hours in Dubai weren't enough + we were so exhausted.
During check-in in New Delhi IGI Airport, we were told we couldn't take our luggages, until we reached Newcastle. I just managed to take out my tight jeans before parting with the bags (I was wearing comfy jeggings for the flight). So ya, one day seemed right in that moment.
I planned to change into another outfit in Dubai, but since I didn't have my luggage, I had to wear my simple comfortable flight attire the whole day. We spent the whole day at Dubai Mall. Till midnight, actually, coz the mall was opened till late that day.
Dubai was just so beautiful! It looked so....picturesque & rich. That day, the weather was so windy and a little foggy. I felt sand on my lipstick


We stayed at the Ramada Downtown Suites Hotel, which was big and roomy. It had a kitchen, a living room, a bedroom & one big bathroom.

The kitchen had almost everything
Too big for my taste + they provided altoo-faltoo toiletries. That means 'not fancy'
Bathroom pose, of course :)

I'm always happy to see my 2nd dream car

Now let's go shopping in Dubai Mall.....
Sephora

VINCCI !!! You know how much I lob it. But I just got 1 pair coz they didn't have a lot of size 3s

I really liked the affordable stuff here
LadurĂ©e ~  About Rs.1500 for 4 macarons. No, I did not buy. I've never had macarons, and I was afraid I wouldn't like them. Also, I associate them with Paris, so I'll have them there only....when I'm wearing pink or mint  =D
Victoria's Secret
Bioderma heaven at a drugstore. Price difference compared to UK was around 400 rupees.

Daiso Japan ~ My favorite shop in Dubai Mall. They sell such fun stuff! But I was too tired to browse for long

Maybelline Colorama Equilibrista on my nails

The Haul: I was shocked that everything was more expensive than in the UK too. A MAC lipstick came to about 1500 rupees! So I just picked up a few pocket-friendly stuff.....
  • 2 shrugs from Koton
  • The rest are from Daiso Japan shop ~ Heart box, Diary, Paper pins, Bow Eyelash Case, Eyebrow & Eyeliner set, Liquid Eyeliner, Pink Brush Holder with diamantes.
The only items missing here are a pair of Vincci loafers & bootie socks with bows from the Japanese shop.


Now that you've seen what's in the heart box (this is my temporary lipstick storage, btw), it's time to reveal the Mystery Giveaway Prize....
The Winner will get 1 Etude House Dear My Blooming Lips Talk Lipstick - lipstick with a bow. Shown here.
*Bonus: Winner, once contacted, will have the option to pick other lipsticks too, if she prefers ~ 1 Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish lipstick or 1 Maybelline Superstay Lipstick.
I gave a 'Hint- One word only', so only those who have the word "Lipstick" or "Lipsticks" in their comment are in. I will select ONE winner randomly.
Winner will be announced next week. Hope you liked my simple & quick giveaway. More to come!
I also hope you enjoyed the pics, and will visit Daiso Japan when in Dubai =) 
Cheers!

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
