Stellar constellation

The twilight dusk submerges into the protective arms of nightfall...the sky surrounds the city in a blanket of lush comfort...Saturn burns brightly in the distance, twinkling like an elusive memory whilst its neighbouring stars nestled in black velvet cloak folds look on and glimmer in turn like a pedestrian crossing...
The smell of the summer heat drifts into a deep slumber awakening with the sun the next morning to once again watch the world rise and rush off to their frantic daily morning rituals...For thousands of years...through life and man...the rise and fall of empires...the history of the thing has remained constant...the moon and the stars preordained to watch over the world...could they talk they would have a million tales to tell.
In my childhood the sky was a constant source of fascination...Id hang upside down from swings and look up at the fluffy clouds sailing happily away and make out faces in the folds of white and grey...with every swing Id stretch out my hand believing I could touch the sky and when I just couldnt make it Id think logically to myself that I needed to grow taller...
As a young woman during my exam times in college, Id leave my books beside the fireplace to take a breather and step out into the balcony to be greeted by the cold fresh night air in the midst of winter...Id throw my head back and through the misty skies Id watch the clouds part to reveal the twinkling skies...a hundred incandescent stars that glittered furiously so close to me Id once again feel that familiar urge of reaching out to catch one...and as I searched for the random off-chance of finding a shooting star to wish on for my examination paper the moon looked down on me...she floated perfectly in the centre of the world like a maestro orchestrating a thousand and one nights of whimsical symphonies in her perfect stillness.
According to the centuries age old cycle..every season a butterfly has to break free of her cocoon and spread her I am once more going through another metamorphosis...happily engaging in a new place to sojourn...thought time would douse my fires of idealism with a healthy dose of cynicism...Didn't you know me better?

I sit here tonight with another tale for the sky to I write a smile tugs at the corner of my mouth..I wish I could articulate...for another time...because that is an entirely different story...Sweet dreams xx

Wanderlust and Balmy Weather

Although we're in May, judging by the weather here its officially summer..five more months to go until I take my annual winter vacation for two months and jet off to the sexier parts of the world...why do I love travelling in winter? I get to experience a country in its natural state of huge influx of congested insanity at the boutique counters...streets with the local population walking around who can actually give you directions...and the best part...the fall/winter wardrobe with no heat to mess up your hair and skin...just gorgeous breezy days and chilly nights experiencing the splendor of a city in all its glory.
As for summer here the good thing is I get to make it to work on time with no crazy rush hour in the mornings so I sleep in an extra 15 min :D..Balmy evenings so far, relaxing to a good tune and a good book...most patients are away on summer holidays so the extra time allows me to delve into hobbies and new things especially as my new year resolutions this year was not to make any...I find myself interested in fun light things...Im taking up French officially finallyyyyyy and my tutor is supposed to come over and study with me for a year so Im really looking forward to gym sessions will kick off seriously to keep myself healthy and I have yet to compile this years summer reading list..a tradition since high school that I enjoy although I do have a couple of books that Im supposed to get into soon..
I have yet to find a weekend hangout that I can laze around in while working on a tan...Im open to any good suggestions...AD still needs to branch into summer leisure time..but so far so looks like its going to be a quiet peaceful one.
This summer will definitely be a spa one...The Iwona Spa in Dubai has the infamous oxygen facials that Madonna swears by..and my personal favourite Sensasia spa will be opening their new branch in the Palm very soon..they have the most delicious treatments...theres more that I plan on visiting on the weekends and I will update with reviews..In AD the Antara spa in Emirates palace comes highly recommended...I have yet to pay them a visit and check out their spa menu...good fun.
Arcona beauty a long kept secret of Hollywood who owe their fresh dewy complexions to it, has opened its doors to the world and given access to all the girlies out there by selling their products as well as adverstising themselves...they use the most natural effective ingredients produced under cold temperatures to preserve the vitamens contained...the enzyme peel treatments sound so utterly divine I cant wait to try them when I go there.
Yippy Skippy! I went from being a total techno blonde who couldnt upload pics to posting my very own mini ipod honour of my technosavviness lmao Im dedicating this track to you..Heres a toast of bubbly cheers to summer nights and lazy days.

Sweet dreams xxx
