So I’ve emigrated to the sandpit, got a shiny new job as the Fashion Features Editor at Emirates Woman and haven’t blogged in (gulp) four months. Come back with a bang, you say? Er, I’ll do my best but this inaugural new-life post might be more of a small, unobtrusive clunk to say hello, I’m still alive and you all have my permission to come out of your extended mourning. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible, but to tide you over here are some (possibly irritating) pictures from the land of sand…

Taller = better. The Burj Khalifa

Ok, now I’m just showing off. Flying Emirates Business to New York. Headphones: Frends
Bloomingdales Dubai red carpet wearing skirt suit from H&M, shoes: Nicholas Kirkwood.Ok, I know how it looks. Highly filtered and more than a bit smug. But emigrating ain’t easy, take it from me. There’s been tears. Rows. Emotional WhatsApp exchanges. And I’m 90% sure all my mates from back home have unfollowed me on Instagram. I’m certainly not in Kansas anymore and fuck, do I miss it. But… *wades deeply into cheesy conclusive sentence* – it’s gonna be one hell of an adventure. I hope you stay with me for the ride.
