As we are still in the topic of summer, I read an article in GQ which features the 8 essential shorts for summer…I couldn’t agree more. My top 3 picks are the white tennis shorts, slim denim and chalky chinos!

Summer in Dubai is really crazy hot that is why dressing up for work during this season is really tricky. I cam across H.E. by Mango’s summer collection and I must say, they are really nice. A mix of summer comfort in a truly fashionable approach. I need to have my hands on them!!!
The movie Ratatouille made a clear depiction that the city of LOVE also means the city for FOOD LOVERS. Paris was a big gastronomic city. The artistry in creating food masterpieces sometimes feels intimidating (from an Asian point of view) but I gobble on them with enough grace and sophistication—hahaha (are you kidding me), I ate them depending on my hunger..
A classy dinner at the top of the Eiffel Tower!.. My first foie grass!
Early morning walk with an early morning croissant and capuccino.
After a very long day strolling around museums and monuments, nothing like a quick crepe au sucre and a sandwich to revive you back to your “A” game.
I know I know ..there are a lot of things that you will say “you are not in Paris if you haven’t tried this..and that”..but this is surely part of that long list! Laduree macaron….nuf said.
I had my taste of croque monsieur along with Mickey.
..and caramelized apple with Snow White.
Homemade chicken quiche baked by a new friend (whom I met in the train).
ok ok ok…so everywhere we go there is always a Selecta.
This should always be in everyone’s bag. There is no Masafi in this part of the world.
Summer is here and in a few months from now I will have to get my travel buddies out from the closet and prepare for another adventure!! yipeeee!!!!
My adventure gears: backpack from Northface, slip on shoes from Aldo, cap from Zara, body bag from Adidas Originals
I was invited to watch the premier of The Great Gatsby here in Dubai at the Meydan Imax Theater. I was really entertained by the movie—a true Luhrman film (very Moulin Rouge feel!)
While glued on my chair, I fell in love the fashion shown in the film. I should have been born in this era!!!!! Good thing Brooks Brothers (the oldest clothier chain in the US) released a limited edition menswear collection inspired by what Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire wore in the film. YEY!!!!!
According to the company—> the costumes had been “modified for the collection so they are at once clearly inspired by the era but entirely wearable today,”
