Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

>> Sunday, October 10, 2010

We arrived here and it's HOT! But yesterday we visited the beautiful, amazing, magnificent [insert more similar descriptive words here] Sheike Zayed Grand Mosque. It was amazing, built based on the architecture of the Taj Mahal in India. It's made completely of marble from different countries around the world. Most of it is gold leaf plated, while the chandeliers are made with Swarovski crystals. The mosque has the largest hand woven carpet of its kind in the world, plus many other record breaking features which has slipped my mind! It really is spectacular. We women had to wear black abayas which was an interesting experience. Inside the mosque, the security would rush to women the minute their head scarf would slip back and tell them to pull it up (yes, he told me off multiple times!). I even saw a couple having a photo and the security man told them to stand further apart - men and women no mingling here! Anyway, some photos....

Love xx


Au Revoir!

Vintage Rose Byrne

 Rose Byrne is an absolutely stunning actress - and I'm not just saying that because once I was compared to her (haha I have no idea what that person was thinking - we do NOT look similar in any way!)! She has porcelain like skin and features and poses such grace and elegance.

These beautiful photos are from a photo shoot for the London Evening Night Standard newspaper, photographed by Nicole Nodland. She is wearing a variety of labels more notably: Chloe, Christian Dio and Topshop. Rose is promoting her latest film with Russel Brand, Get Him to the Greek.

 On our trip we are spending a couple of days in Milan, Italy and I was trying to find some information on the city that wasn't fashion related so I could get an idea of the place. I came across this blog, Mint Sugar, and saw that this girl had just visited Milan with some lovely [what I think are] lomography photos. Unfortunately I can't read Italian, and am a bit lazy to put it through google translate, but the photos suckered me in - especially the gelato one! I will definitely be having some of that!
