    Dubai is the city that has emerged in the middle of the desert in the last 15 years or so by producing the best of the world's modern architecture. Dubai is proud to be home not only to the world's tallest buildings, but also to the most architectural wonders of our century, thus beating every possible human accomplishments when it comes to building impossible developments form skyscrapers to man-made islands. So spending the New Year in Dubai can be pretty awesome.

    Another signiture adventure of Dubai is offered by the endless desert that can be crossed as successfully on a camel's back as in a 4-wheel drive. Naturally, we chose the latter and had much fun riding up and down the sandy dunes as if on a roller coaster with the distinct fear, however, of a potenitail roll-over on the back of you mind. Fortunately, we managed to get to the bedouin camp exactly on sunset and took some amazing photos of the desert sun and the jeep itself.

    Here, Gery decided to wear a pair of white pin stripped capris by Zara, white gladiator sandals by Miss Sixty, a striped blue and golden cardigan by Fornarina and owl-print scarf by Bershka in green, brown and pink.

    Dubai marina is anoher stunning area with high rise towers coupled with luxurious yachts and a pedestrian walk with a small open market and some really nice restaurants. Gery chose the chic street style for a walk across the Dubai marina by pulling a monochrome black-and-white outfit with the accent of a pink flower. Here, the white top and the balloon zebra-print skirt are by Fornarina and the hand back is by Guess.

    The Sandance festival tuned out to be the main event on the New Year's Day. The festival was held on Nasimi beach located on the Palm island with a beautiful view of the Dubai skyline across the newly created bay. For the occasion, Gery threw on a french blue satin dress by Killah and platform strappy sandals in sand and pink by Shoe Art.

    After the fireworks-illuminated break of the New Year, we highlighted the whole Dubai experience with a dinner in the clouds at Burj Kaliha, which is currently the tallest tower in the world souring to the entire  829 meters of height. The Atmosphere lounge bar located on the 122th floor offered an amazing plane- high view over Dubai in addition to the fastest elevator that brought us to the gourmet hors d'oeuvres in the sky.

    Sliding into the New Year is an exciting time for all of us. Charged with emotions and thrilled with anticipation, we strive to celebrate the beginning of the New Year at the most perfect place with the most special people. No matter if you are watching the fireworks on the city square amidst the exalting crowd, toasting with your family at the coziness of your home or partying wildly in a club with friends, the most exciting part is that we are filled with enthusiasm and hope for more successful, happy, peaceful and prosperous times to come.

    We will show you how we rocked the New Year’s in two utterly different locations!

    Angie’s adventure started on a snowy winding road in the mountain. The trip was fairy yet tricky. For hours, the cars were sliding slowly into the white tunnel of frosted silver pine trees.  But it was all worth it! After infinite whiteness and series of sharp turns, we found a row of cozy lodges snuggled among the mighty pines.

    Dreamlike, we found our lodge fascinated under a white cape of snow powder and icicles.  

    It was time to warm up at the fireplace before heading out again for more winter adventures. 

    Off in the snow again, we need to style accordingly. Angie’s outfit selection is cozy and chic. A navy batwing sweater by Firetrap with a rhinestone star accent and skinny indigo jeans by Miss Sixty make her stand out in the white piles of snow. Beige pair of fur-lined boots by Diesel keep her feet warm and dry. Of course, her look is completed by a red beanie and a navy knitted scarf wrapped around her neck, all by Pimkie.

    When we reach the snowy slopes, the view is breathtaking. Riding down the hills or indulging in a cup of hot tea or wine in the sunny panoramic café is what we enjoy most. Surrounded by chatty crowds of tourists, our jolly mood is escalating …

    … until the 12th hour comes with fireworks exploding in the sky, cheers and laughter filling in the air and we’re all raising champagne glasses to embrace  a happier and more successful New Year!

    To be continued ...
