As you know I went on vacation with my friends to Dubai about a month ago. We tried to do as much as possible during that time, so I thought that I would share my top 5 of things you should do when you go to Dubai. I hope I will be able to go back soon, it is such a beautiful city. But meanwhile I dream of that...
Here you have my top 5:
1. Full-day tour of Dubai and Abu Dhabi
If you have limited time and want to see as much of Dubai as possible you should go on a full-day tour of Dubai, preferably including a chance to see Abu Dhabi. The tour should include Burj Khalifa of course - because have you really been to Dubai if you haven't seen it? And even though you aren't religous it worth seeing the Grand Mosque of Abu Dhabi because, it is a "must-see in the Emirates" for a reason. Another bonus when you go on a tour and don't explore yourself is all the intresting facts you get from your tour guide and of course that you get picked up right at your hotel.
2. Premium Red Dunes & Camel Safari with BBQ at Al Khayma Camp
Another must do when you go to Dubai is explore the desert. You'll get surprised how much fun you can have in the sand. Sandboarding really is a fun experience. Camels migh not be my favorite animal but it is fun to be able to say that I have ridden on a camel. My friends took really fun and nice pictures for my Instagram posing with and on that camel. Many times at these sand dunes experiences it includes local performances, nice photos of the sunset and a delishous barbecue dinner.
3. Dubai Atlantis Aquaventure (including Lost Chambers Aquarium)
In the heat it is really nice to have some water activities. And I can imagine that this is extra fun if you have kids. But even as young adults it was really fun to enjoy the rides on this waterpark, and when you've had enough of the fun you can float along lazy rivers and relax on the beach.
4. Dubai Marina Luxury Yacht Tour with Breakfast or BBQ
If you go to Dubai as a couple, a romantic yacht tour can spice up your trip. I can imagine that this would be a great way to propose too. But even as a group of friends it was really nice to enjoy luxury life. You can choose between breakfast or bbq, and we chose bbq. From the superyacht you have a great view of the city and it's famous buildings. This, with other words, gives another great oppertunity to take amazing photos. And I can say that after the eventfull day at the waterpark it was great to just relax on a yacht.
5. Bateaux Dubai Dinner Cruise
If you couldn't get enough of the boat experience, here is something special. You can cruise on the Dubai Creek, eat dinner and have an amazing view through the glass-walls on the boat. Yes, glass walls! The dinner is a 4-course, pretty luxurious, that includes sodas, wine or beer depending on the package you choose. I wouldn't call this a must do, but it is really an experience.

We are back with another 6 themed items. This month's theme is beach and surfing. If you are a beach girl you will love these things. They'll remind you of those wonderful days at the beach and at the same time helps you with a good mood.
Let's take a look at these beautiful pictures to have on your notebook or phone:
1. You can't stop waves but you can learn to surf
This quote is really inspiring because this is life. There will always be up and downs and waves hitting you in the head. That's why you need to learn how to surf in life. A really good quote to bring to school or work.
2. Wake up and quickly go to the beach
Is there a better way to start the day then at the beach? That's why you should quickly go to the beach when you wake up. Many times surfers also avoid the mid-day sun so they wake up early and go to the beach and surf. That's why this is a perfect surfer quote.
3. These are the days we live for
You know when you have those perfect days, maybe with a group of friends at the beach. Those days are the days we live for, isn't that right? Let's remind us of that every day.
4. Some days starts better than the others
Have you ever started your day with a beach walk? Or maybe you just moved down to the beach and continued sleeping on your beach bed in the shade hearing the waves coming in? Yeah, some days just starts better than others.
5. Beach please
Oh, beach please. I just want to go to the beach! You know when you live so close to the beach and yet you never go there because of.... life! You need to work or go to school, clean, do the dishes, cook food and so on. Life just go on and you just feel like: Beach please!
6. Beach hair â Don't care
The beach look is this fresh, salty hair that is very formable. Some would maybe call it unorganized, others call i fashion. Who does not want beach waves in there hair? There are girls that fight to get a beachy look every morning or with the curl iron and salt spray. So why would I be ashamed of my beach hair?

New month - new music! The music industry produces new music all the time. That's why you need to stay on top of the toplists every month, or even every week, to know what's new. That way you can update your playlist with new, fresh music. That will also help you to not get bored of the music you listen to.
Let's check out this weeks top ten!
1. Earfquake - Tyler, The Creator
This is a swaggy song and I like the beat. Apearantly everybody likes it, but something with it doesn't really speaks to me. So while everybody goes listening to this one it doesn't make it into my playlist.
2. Old town road (Remix) - Lil Nas X, Billy Ray Cyrus
So they made a remix of an oldie. I like the thought of it. And they do swing it. If it comes on the radio I will definetly enjoy it.
3. bad guy - Billie Eilish
Billie Eilish is now a world famous young lady. I really like her jazzy voice. She does her own thing riding on the deep thoughts of this world. It is really well done and it is a good way of raising those topics to the surface. She deserves all respect for what she is doing and gets it from both the young public and the older generation.
4. I don't care - Ed Sheeran, Justin Bieber
Two great singers colaborating - Who can complain? This is a really sweet song. I have a hard time not liking whatever Ed Sheeran does. This gets into my playlist. I would call it a Thursday song, do you understand what I mean?
5. Sunflower - Post Malone, Swae Lee
This one seems to have stayed on the toplists since last month. What more can I say? People like spider man.
6. Truth Hurts - Lizzo
A girl rocking the rap world! We always love a queen. She also raises important questions, which always deserves respect.
7. Suge - DaBaby
Rap seems to be the theme of this month. This song isn't my kind of rap though. People seems to like it though so you should give it a chance.
8. I THINK - Tyler, The Creator
The creator has two songs top 10 this month - impressive! His style is called alternative rap. He has been an active musican since 2008 and things is starting to go very well for him lately since the songs from his new album is all over the toplists lately.
9. If I can't have you - Shawn Mendes
Shawn Mendes is back! This makes me very happy because this is my kind of music. This song is his new single, congratulation mr Mendes to the success. Let's hope it keeps climbing to the top. This will definetly be my Friday song.
10. Pop Out - Polo G, Lil Tjay
Another rap song. I'm telling you, rap is taking over the playlists. If you like rap you will be very happy about this.

When you finally are moving to your own place, or get the freedom to redesign your own room, you cannot forget the final touches - the dÃ©cor. That is what will give youÂ that personal touch, what makes you feel like you are in your own home. What you should try to do is to give it a positive vibe. You want your home to be a place that makes you feel good, a place to recharge your batteries.
A great way to get a personal touch is through pillows, mugs and jars.
Let me show you!
1. Make smart choices in your life
With a cute and inspiring quote you get a long way. Quotes says alot about a person. Is this a person with a positive mindset? You can also see if the person has goals and passions.
This pillow gives you a good reminder. Sometimes we are to plugged. We always carry our phones around everywhere and sit infront of computers, tablets and other screens. Although you might not notice it at first, this really gives us inner stress. That's why I try to unplugg a bit more often lately.
3. Life is better when you're laughing
This is so true. We should surround outselves with postivive people that makes us laugh. This is a sequin pillow. A fun and beautiful material that you can change the appearence of by passing your hands over it. A fun thing to do while watching TV maybe?
4. You are something magical
You really are something magical. Even when you are tired and just got out of bed. Magic comes from the inside. Never forget that.
5. "If you want peace you won't get it with violence"
John Lennon truly said som wise things in his life. This is one thing he said that is a beauitful reminder to get with your morning coffee.
6. Today's good mood is brought to you by coffee
Sometimes coffee is our hero. Because sometimes we need a push towards that positive mind set. And what is better then an ice coffee in a cute mason jar with a reusable straw? Well that is one of my favourite ways of starting the day anyways. Oh! And a mason jar looks good on the kitchen shelf too.
7. Be better then you were yesterday
We should all strive to improve ourselves every single day. Life is too short to waste a day. We all want to become better persons and improve our lives every day. Decorating our homes with things that reminds us of that is a step towards success.

Gossip cafÃ© and desserts
CafÃ©s is always good places for instagram. In this cafÃ© you can enjoy delisious coffÃ© with cute designs.

This is a beatiful place where you can take hundreds of photos with colourful and beautiful backgrounds. Everything is created from flowers. You can find anyything from The Eiffel Tower to an Emirates A380.
Jumeira public beach
This is the perfect beach to take your beach photos on. It's a beautiful beach with a background view of a skyscraper called Burj Al Arab. If you just want a cool photo of the skyscraper reflecting in the water you should go there at sunset.
City walk in Dubai
Here is another place where you can take millions of photos. At the city walk you find knitted trees and street art. You can also find cool cafes and cute boutiques.

This place has a modern feel to Arabian architecture. Eat at delightful restaurants and visit traditional shops. There is also a super scenic abra ride where you can take beautiful photos.
That was just seven of my favourite places. There are many more places that also will help you get that nice feed. I also wanted to remember you to enjoy those places in the moment and not only through a camera lens. Sometimes we just get so cought up with taking photos that we forget to just enjoy the experience. So do also put the camera or phone down and enjoy your trip!
