If you live in the sandpit, winter does not necessarily mean leather and furry coats. It mostly means light coverup. Dubai does not get cold. The weather during this season is just very pleasant. Comfortable with a little cool breeze but definitely still sunny and bright. And although I may tuck away my summer dresses, one thing I still get to enjoy wearing is linen. The fabric itself is actually perfect for winters in the sandpit. Throw in the additional scarf and you are good to go.

I recently discovered Capritouch and although some people tend to wear this during summer itself, I love the fact that I can actually get away with it this season as well. A true classic investment if you ask me and I have always loved clothes like that – one that does not choose a season, an era or body-type for that matter. One that can work with my wardrobe day or night, summer or winter. I am actually inlove with their linen blazers which I would typically wear oversized (either way they only come for men so it would definitely be oversized for me). Oh and their hand-made sandals come with gorgeous embellishments which is a definite “must-buy” if you love statement footwear.

The weekend is coming up and although I am technically working, that does not mean I don’t get to have a little fun. It is the best part of loving what you do, it is not always work, but a whole lot of pleasure too! It has always been very important to me to do what I am passionate about. Something that interests me and something that drives my passion in full throttle. Anything less surely dampens my spirits and bores me to death. Anyways, I am sure you have noticed some subtle changes in the logo, the main layout of the blog and a few more tweaks here and there. I am slowly rebranding and updating the website and super excited with everything I have been cooking up in the oven. It is a lot of work but definitely so worth the time and effort because I absolutely love it.

So now, my question is…Are you also doing what you love? Let me know your thoughts.

Happy Weekend from the Sandpits of Dubai!

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire. It is that time for home.
