I did put my guy through his traditional Easter hunt with clues to find the big chocolate egg ~ it's something I've been doing since we were dating in high school and although he grumbles about how much he hates it, I know that deep down inside, he loves every minute of it! It's a tradition! ;)
One thing I did do was check out the new store called Lindex that has opened here in Dubai and in Abu Dhabi. My friend Kathy at West Family Adventures gave me the heads-up about this new store that also offers online shopping to anyone living in Europe.
They have a fun Modern Preppy line modelled by the lovely Gwyneth Paltrow and I was anxious to see all the pieces.
I was hoping to find the chic navy blazer but it was sold out. I did try on the coloured chinos but unfortunately can't rock them like Gwyneth!
So what did I buy? This lightweight cotton drawstring-waist dress which will be perfect here in the blistering heat, and this cute nautical striped top. I would describe Lindex like an H&M but on a smaller scale. They have a lot of fun pieces and their prices are in a similar range. I'll definitely be paying them another visit!
Thanks for all of your sweet comments on our living room! It sounds like you love our ottoman as much as I do ~ I think it's definitely the piece that makes the room and makes the space feel less temporary. I did some sewing on our slipcovers and will share my progress tomorrow. Here's to a great short week!
