Monday Links For The Week … Gitex & Stuff …

Right … well this weekend was rather busy … we finally sold the car … officially transferred registration over to the new vehicle and we are currently car-less … atleast for a couple more days … we should have the golf by the end of the week (Fingers Crossed) … just waiting on the bank to get the paperwork sorted … We also headed over Gitex Shopper 2012 at the Dubai World Trade Centre on Satruday evening …

It was an experience I never want to go through again … I mean I guess it would be fine if you had actually gone there with the intention of buying something or were on the lookout for a good deal on a TV/Camera/Printer/Substitute any other consumer electronic item of your choice … but we were just there for a browse … the most extravegant thing we were on the look out for was a phone case!

Needless to say the crowds were immense … and just the sensory overload alone was enough to make me want to run away … but we did a couple laps of the hall … had some frozen yoghurt … and called it a night … ended up going home earlier than anticipated which was probably not a bad thing … I was really tired and fell asleep quite quickly while Perry played with the kittens abit …

Moving on … I have quite a few links to share this week … although I’ve been on abit of a DIY / Crafting / Cooking kick lately … so there’s lots of links for stuff like that this week …

  1. To start of with … have you ever wished to bottle the scent of a city … well apparently now you CAN
  2. I thought these LACE STENCILLED PLATES were quite fun and great for decoration … I’d like to these at some point … not sure when I’ll have the time …
  3. Fancy doing some invitations with a difference … try out these TEA BAG INVITATIONS WITH TEA CUP ENVELOPES … looks quite time consuming but is quite a fun effect …
  4. This SPICY SWEET POTATO AND CHIPOTLE SOUP … looks yummy … I will be giving this a go soon …
  5. With the US presidential elections coming up … some people think CANADA can be a better leader of the US … not a specific Canadian … but the whole country …
  6. This is one dog who stubbornly refuses to get out of bed for anyone … and is very vocal about it … 
  7. ADORABLE PHOTOS OF BEAR CUBS IN RUSSIA … so cute!
  8. Are you bored of your shoes? … Don’t want to go and spend money on a new pair? … well maybe these 25 DIY SHOE MAKEOVERS will give you some ideas on how to spruce up an old pair of shoes to make them like new …
  9. TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY LIVE FESTIVAL … in London 5th – 8th October …
  10. Some of my favourite articles from the Thought Catalog this week … a) A SATIRE ABOUT THE HELL THAT IS TAKING A COMMERCIAL FLIGHT … b) PANDAS LEARN ABOUT PANDA EXPRESS, ARE NOT PLEASED … c) EVERY PHONE INTERVIEW I’VE EVER HAD … (this last one I can totally relate with!)
  11. A perfect example of how LIFE IN DUBAI makes you think differently … To be honest I had the same reaction as this Dubai Housewife … probably those from the UK will get this more so than the others … but the article explains it pretty well …
  12. Finally … this TUNNEL OF LOVE in the Ukraine looks amazing … would love to go there myself at some point …

Ok well thats if for this week … hope this gives you guys something interesting/inspiring to read on a Monday … and as usual if you have anything interesting or inspiring … or even just plain random to share … then feel free to leave a comment below …

Till next time …
