As some of you would know I went on a family vacation to Dubai recently. It was more of a touristy trip than a shopping trip. We did the desert safari, dhow cruise, marina walk etc. Me and my husband did squeeze out a little time for ourselves at night where we explored the Dubai party scene, which by the way is amazing!
We went to the Dubai mall and the Mall of Emirates for shopping. The malls of Dubai are HUGE! We kept getting lost all the time. And there is no way that you can cover an entire mall in a day. Before leaving India I made a little list of the things I wanted to buy and shops I wanted to check out so that I waste less time looking around and just go buy the things that you don’t get here in India. Also Dubai is not a cheap place for shopping. Everything was more expensive than India. So I didn’t buy much. I didn’t buy clothes at all. So here is what I bought.
Kate Spade Wristlet
The one thing I was looking for since a long time was a good wallet, but I didn’t want the usual big ones, just a small one that fits in my cash, cards, id and can easily fit in small bags without being bulky. This Kate Spade wristlet was just perfect. Kate Spade had such nice bright and colorful bags and wallets. Their stationery was so adorable but just too expensive.
Lush Bath Bombs
I hate that Lush shut down in India. They have such nice products and all fresh and organic. But the one thing I had my eyes on were the bath bombs. I have seen so many bloggers talk about these bath bombs. These are basically balls that you put in your bathtub and they make the water smell so good. They also have ingredients that moisturize your skin. Some of them make your bath bubbly too.
No trip is complete without getting some perfumes. I got See by Chloe, which is a nice floral scent and Vera Wang Princess, which I havent opened yet.
Bath and Body Works Candles
I already have a few Bath and Body Works candles left to burn from my last trip abroad so this time I just got two –Mahogany Teakwood, which I gave to my mom-in-law and Sweater Weather.
Bath and Body Works Hand Soaps
Well I know is stupid to get hand wash from another country, but these smell amazing. Also there was buy one get one free promotion going on, so couldn’t resist.
Makeup and Beauty
I hardly bought any make up on this trip.
I got Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita, Sephora Liquid Lipstick in 01, too faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick in Melted Candy, Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bauhau5 and Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Color Shine Gloss in Charmed.
Then I got H&M Eye colour-to-go eye shadow stick in Golden Age, Soap & Glory Archery 2 in one Brow Filling Pencil and Brush. I also repurchased my Kick Ass Concealer, which I absolutely love.
I got two sleeping face masks from the Sephora brand – Pomegranate Sleeping Mask and Rose Sleeping Mask. A clear make up pouch from H&M.
I bought a packet each of dried crispy strawberry and peach and obviously chocolates.
I feel like this was along post. I hope you enjoyed seeing my haul. Also follow me on Instagram (lovefashionmakeupblog) and Snapchat (LFMblog) for daily updates.
