8 colorful winter coats to covet

I am a big fan of colorful clothing in the winter. And as the temperatures drop, I find myself looking for vibrant winter coats. Early this year, I purchased this green coat from Lord and Taylor and I am currently on the hunt for something that's equally vibrant. However, because we are right smack in the middle of winter, it's been hard to find a decently priced coat. It seems like I'll have to wait till the end of spring, when the prices have been significantly marked down. For now, I'll just feast my eyes on these gorgeous colorful coats I found online.

The wine/burgundy coat is my absolute favorite. Which is yours?

Desert Safari, Dubai

When my friend and I started planning our trip to Dubai, I immediately added a desert safari tour to our list of activities. I had seen so many cool desert pictures on Instagram and I could not wait to join the fun.

 The tour started with a sand dune bashing. I had never heard of sand dune bashing, and if I had looked up what the activity entailed, I would have probably stayed away. I did get a bit dizzy, but fortunately, I did not throw up. After the exciting dune bashing, it was time to ride the camel. It was a fun ride albeit short. The rest of the evening on the desert was relaxing, I got the henna tattoo on my hand, smoked some shisha aka hookah (first time), stuffed my face with the buffet food that was provided in the desert camp and watched a belly dance performance. The desert tour was amazing and was the best experience I had in Dubai. 

Over the next few weeks, I will be posting picture from my other Dubai adventures. For now, enjoy my Arabian desert tour.

That's all folks, have an amazing Tuesday.

Travel Therapy: Rome

Hey Chicas, 
 Another Travel Therapy post here--whoop! This time I will be sharing pictures of my trip to Rome. Rome was an interesting place and the hustle and the bustle of the city reminded me a lot of my hometown, Lagos. The Roman architecture was everything I thought it'd be. Every single building looked like it had some fascinating history behind it. Asides taking in the beautiful sights of this ancient city, I indulged in some pasta and gelato- yum! One thing I regret about this trip was that I was unable to visit the Sistine Chapel. I will be in Rome for a few hours next month, and I am wondering if it makes sense to dash out of the airport to do the chapel??

Enjoy the pictures!

First night in Roma.
