I went to Dubai during the summer holidays, we go to Dubai frequently and the place has become somewhat of a second home to me. This time round we stayed at the luxurious Jumeirah Zabeel Saray; (a hotel located in Palm Jumeirah) we stayed in a 10 bedroom villa (known as a Royal Residency by the hotel) complete with a stunning private pool and beach. Most of the bedrooms were not even used, as there were only 5 of us! It was pretty incredible, as during our stay at the villa, Ne Yo and Nicole Scherzinger checked into our hotel! They had been filming X Factor there, but security was very tight, so unfortunately no autographs or photos!

The main thing we did in Dubai was most definitely shopping! From the world's biggest shopping complexes, Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates, as well as dozens of other locations, we were pretty spoilt for choice! I enjoyed visiting shops which you won't find in Manchester such as Sephora, Bebe and Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as visiting the regular Harvey Nichols and Topshop! As well as shopping, we also went to visit the iconic Burj Khalifa - the tallest building in the world, a safari trip to the desert, endless trips to various restaurants and many other things.

Dubai is my favourite city, and I hope to live there in the future. If you haven't already been then I really do recommend you add it to your list, as it's a sight not to be missed! I may potentially come again to Dubai during Christmas this year, although it may prove difficult due to exams. I hope you enjoyed this long delayed photo diary, and I would love to hear about your holidays too!
