{Fashion Monday} A Dubai kind of Birthday 

Last week Friday I turned 30 and treated myself to an extended weekend to Dubai. I had known for months that I wouldn’t be spending my birthday at home or even within the UK. It’s not everyday you turn 30 so I wanted it to be extra special and extra it was. Turning 30 if I am honest was a scary thought to analyse and digest. They say age is just a number and whilst it might be that it’s still a scary prospect. Personally I decided to flip the view on getting older and enjoyed the moment. If I look at the last 30 years of my life, I have accomplished so much including visiting 30 countries. Not everyone can say they have been to 30 countries by the time they reached their 30th birthday.

A Dubai Birthday

I had shared last week what I wished for my birthday which included a Michael Kors bag. Well as materialistic as that made me, I finally got me a MK travel set bag in orange {similar}. I am totally over the moon with this bag and overly protective of it. It’s not everyday you get luxury products but sure does feel nice when you do.
Getting back to the birthday in Dubai, apart from the crazy heat temperatures of 45 degrees day and night it was epic.

Because of the heat I made the minimal effort to explore the city and just spent all day at the pool and beach. The view from the executive suite was everything and more than I imagined. Dubai Westin is definitely a must stay at hotel in Dubai and I highly recommend it.

    Look at that gorgeous view! I think I’d be the same in the heat, I love to explore new cities but the sun wipes me out when I’m on holiday!

    I was so scared of turning 30 and it turned out to be my best birthday. It’s strange how we get so stressed out over a number. Yey for getting you MK bag! And for spending your big day in Dubai, it looks such a beautiful place.

      It is an amazing place and excited to be planning another trip there in the future. I so agree with the strangeness we feel over getting older but once we embrace it all is well
