CASA DOLCE CASA: Okay, so there's no point repeating myself with this, Italy is my real home, I was born there and well it feels good being home when I'm there...but Dubai is where I lived most of my life...so when I come back home and see the rest of the people I love and my two babies (my dogs). It changes again. Italy you're my real home but Dubai is always going to be in my heart. ♥
TIME TO GO BACK TO DXB: Okay,Venice and spending those 2 weeks at home was more than amazing. Going out with my amazing friends, having drinks, having an amazing time, laughing, playing games, staying up until 9 in the morning was incredible.Oh and ofcourse eating like a little pig, from Pizza Al Prosciutto, to merendine, to Tronkey, to Fronzies and so on...everyone was amazing and I'm so happy I got to spend time with the friends I love the most. I feel like this holiday was one I REALLY needed after a crazy not so happy month of June. I had the most incredible time. I'll be back soon, Italy. Love you!
I LOVE THESE HORSES: Hey loves, here for you the photos me and my aunt took when the other day we went to a place where they do horse riding and so on. I took these random pictures next to the stables because after a few days we went horse riding as a "trial" and then the day before leaving Italy we went for an actual walk in the middle of the fields...and basically in the middle of green and nature. it was beautiful. All of the pictures up super soon!
GETTING INKED: Getting a tattoo is not everyone's cup of tea. Since it's permanent you have to be sure of what and where you want the tattoo to be. The first time I thought of getting one was when I was like 14, and my mum was definitely not happy with it. Second, I am terrified of needles. Other thing is, I wasn't completely sure of what I wanted to get and there was NO CHANCE I would permanently tattoo something on my body without being 100% certain of what I wanted.
As the years went by, my desire of getting one grew and I was finally narrowing it down. I finally have decided what I wanted, a design on my left wrist and this thing is not just a design, it's very important and powerful to me that I was 100% convinced.
I have been lingering on this though for years and for the last few months it only grew stronger. Yesterday, I finally grew some .... and got it done, FINALLY! Overcoming a fear is something so incredibly powerful and its not only the happiness of finally getting what I wanted on my body, but the fact that I was brave enough to go through with it. The location of my body which I got my tattoo done is on the side of my wrist. I'm so happy I got my tattoo done at 3lena Tattoo because the studio was perfectly clean and sterilized the fact that she explained everything step by step was really good and since I was scared as it was my first tattoo it got more relaxing and I was more tranquil. After she prepared everything and got her gloves and everything ready, to be completly honest freaking out a little but the moment she started, I was ready for huge and major pain, as a lot of my friends told me it'll hurt a lot and so on. She started and honestly I was shocked because it didn't hurt at all. I think the reason is not only because of the location of where I got the tattoo done but because of how good Elena was with the needle and all.
I cant wait to show you! ♥ Don't forget to check out her page on facebook, E Di 3lena Tattoo

BEAUTIFUL THING: I've always loved visiting castles, becuase when I was a little girl, I wanted to be a princess...and wear those long dresses with a corset at the begging and so on... so the day after we went to Slovenia, my best friend's mum was talking about Trieste, and she asked if I had ever visited the castle of Mira Mare...and to be honest, I did...probably more than 10 times but I was too young and small to remember. So we decided we had to go visit it. The day after, in the afternoon, we got ready, got in the car and went to visit this beautiful castle. Here are the pictures. I hope you like them guys! Thank you so much for your comments.♥ P.S. Don't forget to read below, a little bit about the castle!
POSTOJNA CAVE: Another amazing day, this time spent it in Slovienia. We went to visit the Postojna Caves which were so beautiful. I would stay in Slovenia all day if I could, I love everything there, so green, beautiful blue skies and omg the weather was incredible. Thank you so much for your comments.♥
PHOTO FABULOUS TIME: Mr.Elephant, well you guys all know that I'm obsessed with elephants, so when I found this picture while getting inspired and looking through Pinterest, i fell in love with it and ofcourse I had to add it to my "Photo Of The Day" session on the blog. This picture is beautiful.♥
PHOTO FABULOUS TIME: I saw this photo on one of my best friend's cover page on facebook once and thought to myself omg, that is beautiful, i wonder where it is.

I like packing, but I always tend to do it last minute...which sucks because then i have to hurry. I'm certain I'm bringing my laptop with me, not only I have to do work and continue working on the new projects but I also don't think it's possible for me not to blog while I'm in Europe.
I promise to show you fantastic locations for my looks of the days and awesome scenery pictures.

WEEKEND SONG: I know I usually publish a song which is usually old or has been already been listened to for AGES, but my sister told me about this song the other day and now I'm officially obssesed with it. I was finishing packing my suit case yesterday and just WOW, I'm crazy about it. Please listen to it, and read the lyrics, usually thats the best part of the song. Hope you enjoy the song & hope you have the best weekend ever! ♥
DON'T STOP ME NOW: It's been a week since I got the wonderful Driver's License and I can't stop. The same day I got my license I went home by metro only because I had no other transport, got home, showered, changed, DROVE to a meeting, drove back home, changed, drove me and my mum to have coffee.... and so on, since then I haven't stopped. I have been going to pick up my sister almost everyday! ♥ I LOVE it!!! Here are a few pictures I couldn't wait any longer to show you!

I can't say anything about the projects yet, but soon I will be able to talk to you about it! All I want to say is, you guys are going to love it! Always, stay tuned!!! :)
PACKING: It's that time of the year again, where all I want to do is leave. Leave this horrible heat and go back home for a little while. I'm packing my suit case to go back home. I'm so excited to see everyone! I can't wait to hug and spent an amazing summer with some of closest friends.
TANNING: The other day I decided to go to the pool and soak up some sun, i kind of died but it was just so much fun and i loved going to the water and back to my tanning bed.♥ This was all the same day the temperature reached 44*C I
EUROPE, HERE I COME: Hello gorgeous people!! Hope you're all having a fantastic day!! :) This year, was a bit difficult to decide weather to go only to Italy to spend time with family and old friends or to go to another place before or after Italy. After having a few meetings with my family, we decided to go to Italy. I'm leaving very soon and they leave after a little longer. I cannot wait to be in Europe!!! & ofcourse I cannot wait to be with my family and old friends!!! Bye Dubai! See you in a while!!!
PHOTO FABULOUS TIME: TWhen I look at photos of animals like the one I chose for today's "Photo Of The Day" session I fall in love even more than I already am with my dogs. This is how I wake up in the morning, myself with one dog on one side and the other dog on the other side. I couldn't be happier. I ADORE this photograph.♥
AZTEC CRAZY: The other day, one of my best friends Azeen came over and she brought me her late birthday gifts which I'm completely in love with, almost everyone knows my obsession with AZTEC pattern so that's why she bought me this aztec top i'm wearing in these pictures and then she bought me a few neon bracelets for a perfect fit.♥
Thank you so much my love, you're awesome P.S. Random but I ADORE this quote:"Life is like a camera lens, focus only on what's important and you will capture it perfectly."
OFFICIALLY PASSED MY FINAL TEST: I finally got my driver's license. I've been very excited to get it for so many different reasons and main one just because I love driving.♥ It's all thanks for my parents, thanks to them who made it possible for me to get it, Thank you mum & thank you dadm You guys are the best and that's never going to change.

AZEEN CUDDLES: And did I ever mention i just adore Azeen coming over, okay, it's normal for her to just open the fridge and pig out in my house haha, she's like family and she has been for a really long time now. All those sleepless nights doing projects and all. ♥
