Today marks the last week here in London before I move to Dubai!! This time next Friday I will be in the air and probably feeling all sorts of emotions. I received my tickets and visa yesterday so I am officially ready to go.
We are allowed 50kg of luggage so I bought myself two huge suitcases last week from Primark and have been adding bits and pieces in every day. I am starting to worry that I’ll be over the weight limit as there is just so much I want to take with me! I have packed a tonne of bikinis, dresses and sandals, however, I also have to bring winter clothes with me such as boots, jumpers and jackets as I will start flying in October, and who knows, I might end up in Moscow!
I also purchased some new makeup, seeing as I will have to start wearing it every day. I’ve heard great things about Urban Decay and ended up buying the ‘Optical Illusion Complexion Primer’ and ‘All Nighter Setting Spray’ – both of which will be great when I am flying as they are the key to long-lasting makeup.
I then went into MAC and used my leaving gift voucher from my work colleagues to buy the obligatory red lipstick! I went into the Westfield Stratford store and a lovely lady knew exactly what I was looking for. A lot of red lipsticks do not suit my skin tone as I am quite pale, however, she recommend the ‘Brick’ lipliner followed by the ‘Viva Glam I’ lipstick. The colour is perfect.
Surprisingly I am pretty organised and packed so I am looking forward to spending this weekend with friends, and then next week with family.
Today I also treated myself to a new pair of sunglasses. I never really saw the point in buying designer sunglasses when living in the UK as theres hardly ever sun, however, since I will be living in Dubai and travelling the world, it now makes sense!!
As I am writing this post, I have just this minute received my accommodation details! So so excited now, it is all starting to feel real.
Thanks for reading.
