This post is long overdue but I forgot that I had already written it and I didn’t post it!
Those of you who have been following my blog for a while will know that I like to travel a lot and last year I really got to explore the world more than I used to and that is amazing. So, on the 17th of December (ages ago) me and my family left to Switzerland and took a few trains which took altogether 3 HOURS! But I had a new book to read so it was all good 👍🏼 The view on the train was beautiful and when we got there there was a fair amount of snow; not too much but just enough.
On the second day (I think) we went skiing and it really started to snow a lot and the whole town looked beautiful. But of course every day after that there was rain so it just washed away all the snow and it was gross and muddy and ew.
One of the highlights was going up a mountain called Glacier 3000 which had the softest, most powdery snow I’ve ever touched ❄️ Except it was really, really, really cold and my toes actually went numb. Having hot chocolate after that was amazing.
On the second-last day I got to meet my bestie, Noelle who some of you may have read about in my first few posts. All we really did was walk around the town and chat but the weather was nice and beautiful (except for the tiny bit of drizzle which turned into a lot of rain).
On the last day (the 24th!) we had a bit of time before our flight so my family decided to walk around Geneva and do a bit of shopping since there weren’t many shops in Gstaad. I got a nice, pinkish-purple, knitted top which is sooo pretty. You might see it in a future blog post 😉 After that, we had to go back to the airport and go back home.
What place in the world do you really want to visit?
First bloggy blog post since 2018 started heyyyyy! Now I’m going to start posting on Thursdays and Mondays, hopefully, I can do it. So as you may know, I’ve been on holiday for about a week and it was such a fabulous break. I went to:
Chamonix, Mont Blanc (🇫🇷)
DISCLAIMER: This post is by no means meant to show off or brag about anything. If you don’t like these kinds of posts, please skip over and maybe read one of my other blog posts you might enjoy.
A Rose Quartz Necklace
This is a really pretty necklace that I got from Chamonix. Since crystals are in their culture I thought it would be almost illegal not to buy a necklace! Apparently, this one is great with situations which require creativity and the written word (my blog!).
A Crystal Soap
Don’t worry, I’m not addicted or anything! It’s just that this was too pretty and smelt way to good to pass. Where would I find this anywhere else anyway?
A ‘Merci Handy’ Refreshing Face Mist
I was actually not going to get this but then I saw that it was half price and relatively cheap. “ The art of mind changing discounts “. After testing, I felt that this spray really freshens your face when you just woke up or are sleepy; it’s pretty good.
2 Pandora Bracelet Charms
Holld Uup! Only one of these is mine, the snowman. The gingerbread is actually my mom’s but we decided to rotate once in a while so … yeah. They’re both really cute and you can’t get them here so we got a little souvenir. ⛄️
and now…last but not least…
Moonlight (perfume) by Ariana Grande
Technically my mom bought this for me because she wanted to get it for my B-day but it wasn’t available anywhere in Dubai. Not even Souq or Desertcart. Say whhaaa? Yes. They are both like Amazon but for the UAE.
And that is the end of my haul! Please comment down below (is this youtube or what) if you would like me to do a review of any of these things, also any blog posts you would like me to attempt.
