Hi loves! How are you doing? We are doing great, but we are also a bit sad to leave this place.. Dubai has really been treating us well the last few days. We just wanted to check in and show you our new travel luggage. These bags are amazing! They are from the brand Douchebags, a brand based in Scandinavia. It all started in the year 2009 with a huge passion for traveling the world in search of epic skiing. However, they both (the founders) also relate to the same painful luggage problems when travelling with a buch of ski gear. The more they talked and talked about this, read bulky bags, heavy carrying and expensive overweight charges. The more they realised that they would love to do something about this! A few years later, the not only developed the most handy ski gear, but also all different kind of travel bags. We choose for the Big Bastard (haha how fun are the names?) and a backpack, which we can click and attach to the bigger luggage. We are obsessed! Definitely worth considering when looking for new travel gear. They come in all different colors, which we love and they are beautifully made. More details in the description above! Now, it´s time to start our journey home soon. Talk soon!
Hi loves! How are you doing? We are great! Just spend some time at Le Merdien Mina Seyahi, and oh it was just awesome! It’s a peaceful retreat settled on Jumeirah Beach, Dubai’s largest private white sand beach. The resort facilities are outstanding: there are different beautiful pools and lots of areas to relax. The resort was pretty busy during our stay, but since there is so much space: private beach, pools, gardens, you don’t really notice other guest, which we really liked! The location is amazing! It’s close to major Dubai local attractions, with for example Dubai Marina within walking distance, different sky bars and lots of restaurants. However, the resort has so many restaurants and bars, that you actually don’t want to leave. We had lunch at Bussola, an authentic Italian restaurant. It offers traditional menu, but prepared in very original way. It seems like the chef wants to offer traditional Italian food, adding a bit of his passion and creativity to keep the authentic taste but at the same time offer something different. The food was really outstanding.. You taste the high quality products in combination with creativity and lots of talent. You guys can check them out HERE!
Now it’s time to get some work done and then perhaps some drinks in Dubai Marina, yay! Have a lovely day babes!
Dress from Pitusa (HERE!).
Hey loves! How are you doing? Hope you´re all doing great! We just had a calm day today, a few days back we went of this desert safari in Dubai. Which was amazing!! Just look at the neverending sand dunes, so pretty. One of us wore a long white dress from Pitusa, which was perfect for the location! It was very flowy in de wind, which turned out great on the photos we think. We just love simple dresses like these in summer! Effortless and simple, just how we like it. Pitusa is a US brand from Miami. They are known for their details, the pompoms. And we are obsessed! We now own a few of their dress and they are the most comfiest and beautiful made beachwear dresses we own. The fabric is super soft and it´s just so comfortable to wear. Definitely worth checking out guys! Now, it´s time to get ready for dinner. Have a great evening loves! Talk soon.
Goodmorning babes! How are you doing? We are doing fantastic! Just look at this Supermarket… Why can´t we have this at home? Would make it so much easier to go out and get some groceries. So of course, we had to go here everyday, we would find a good excuse! Here wearing a matching denim set from Basic Apparel, a brand from Denmark. It´s still a young brand agreed to start a basic clothing brand based in Odense & Copenhagen. The idea was to create clothes, that people can use again and again. Combining it in all different ways. Which we are all about! They have created some favorites and must have pieces that you will wear over and over again. The brand has a clean Scandinavian expression, without too many details and made in good quality and reasonable prices. Definitely worth checking out if you are looking for some new favorites to wear! We love this matching set and we are sure it will never go out of style, OBSESSED! The sandals are from the US brand Maumero. We love their shoes! Not only because the insole is in this gorgeous pink (okay it helps haha), but because their shoes are so stylish and comfy at the same time! Also good to know, 10% from the sale of every shoe will be donated to one of the participating charitable organizations of your choice. How amazing is that?! This way you can feel even better when purchasing new shoes haha. All the links of the clothing and shoes you willl find above! Now, it´s time for a real Sunday! Talk soon loves!
Hi babes! How are you doing? We are great! As you may have seen on Instagram, we have left Zanzibar and we are now back in Dubai to actually work for a few days. That would be nice, since we are both pretty rested. We don’t say that often, so that’s a pretty special feeling for us, haha! It’s all due to our last few nights in Zanzibar. We have stayed in an amazing place called Hakuna Majiwe, a true little paradise, located near to Paje. The coast over there is really breathtaking! It’s a palm-fringed beach with incredible white sand and unreal turquoise water ❤
They offer these luxury cabanas, which are actually located at the beach itself; it’s feet in the soft sand the moment that you step outside, love that feeling! The cabanas makes you feel the Zanzibari culture, with it’s mixing thatched roofs and the wooden floors.. And they are really comfortable. It makes you want to stay for ever.
There is lots to do in the area around Hakuna Majiwe. At Hakuna Majiwe you can learn how to kite, at the kite school (Paje is a real paradise for kite surfers, due the perfect coastline and the fresh breeze on the beach). So when you are here you should definitely try that! There is also an excursion centre, for snorkeling, dolphin safaris, different tours and go on.. However, that’s for more intrepid guests, we always really appreciate relax time and just doing nothing on the beach with some good music and some delicious cocktails. There are lots of different restaurants and bars in the area, however, the food at Hakuna Majiwe is sooooo good, that we actually stayed in for a few lunches and dinners. HERE! you can see how a dinner could look like, a dream!
If you guys are planning a visit to Zanzibar, Hakuna Majiwe is the perfect getaway to an exotic African paradise. You can check them out HERE!
Dinner at Hakuna Majiwe (HERE!).
Hi guys! Hope you’re all doing great! We wanted to show you how our dream-dinner looks like, so here are some pics! We love to eat at the beach.. Nothing beats the feeling of your bare feet in the white sand while enjoying some outstanding food, right? During our stay at Hakuna Majiwe we decided that we NEED to have our dinner at the beach at least once. It was our last night in this little paradise and the weather was amazing (as every single day in Paje). We got to see the most beautiful sunset, with a pink-blue sky and also the beach seemed to turn pink and purple.. Just amazing! You can eat a la carte: Hakuna Majiwe offers a great selection of Swahili-Zanzibari cuisine, with some international flair. But the chef offered us a surprise menu, and with his enthusiasm and passion for food we needed to try that. And gosh it was DELICIOUS! The chef uses locally sourced ingredients and with the creativity in his kitchen, an amazing culinary experience is guaranteed! Private dinning became our new favorite thing, so when you are here, you should definitely try that!
Espadrilles from OAS Frame (HERE!).
Hi babes! How are you doing? We are doing great! Just wanted to check in quickly and show you our new espadrilles which we have been loving lately. They are from the Swedish brand OAS Company. It might seem quite odd that this summer brand comes from one of the coldest countries in the world, but after a yearly vacation trips to Barcelona, OAS was born as a reaction towards the Swedish winter to create the feeling of vacation all year round. Which we think is really cool! We went for a flower design on our espadrilles, because we felt like this was something different that the usual espadrilles. Best way to give your summer outfit a boost! The brand not only sells beautiful espadrilles for ladies, but also for men and kids. They even have some great beachwear pieces! Definitely worth checking out. Now, it´s time to enjoy our day. Talk soon loves!
Golden Dress from Minkpink (similar HERE!).
Hi babes! How are you doing? We are doing great! Again, writing to you from paradise.. a paradise called Hakuna Manjiwe. Such a beautiful place by the beach, with perfect white sand and palmtrees everywhere. What else do you want? Just the perfect feeling to walk and chill around in this area. Did we already mention that we are obsessed with fresh coconut, so yummy! We´re definitely going to miss that when back home haha. Here wearing a beautiful silk golden dress from Minkpink. We love flowy dresses like these. Minkpink is a large fashion label, with the most amazing clothing for all kind of girls. From classy to sporty. You should them out for sure! We have some more amazing pieces, which we are going to show later on. Have a great day loves! Talk soon!
Hi babes! How are you doing? We are slowly getting used to the super slow island internet, haha! You just have to be really patient and everything will be alright ❤ Here are some pic from our stay in Park Hyatt Zanzibar. Oh guys it was soo amazing! We have stayed in different Hyatts before, but Park Hyatt is truly amazing! The hotel is located in the historical Stone Town, so all the key attractions are easily accessible by foot. Still there is a beautiful white beach, which you can see from the infinity pool, a dream!
We fell in love with the design and the interior of the hotel. It’s a really mixed atmosphere, with typical Zanzibari details, alongside Arab, Persian, Indian and European element. Perfection if you ask us!
We love to taste local food when we are traveling, but since the breakfast was AMAZING, we also stayed in for dinner ❤ And ohhh the food is just so delicious, and so are the drinks from the large cocktail menu, the best!
Now it’s time for a shower and some dinner. Have a lovely night babes!
