..Welcome to paradise..

There is a place in Egypt where the time slows down, where you are not overwhelmed by tourists, where you can enjoy yorself and the beauty of the place, where you can bee free. 

North from Sharm el sheik , "at feet" of Sinai mountains , there is Dahab. 
They saying that the name came from the sand which turns In Gold colour ather floods. 
But  According to the Bedouin of the area, however the name "Dahab" has a different origin. When the Bedouin people came there they called it "waqaat thahaab" which translates literally to "Time Goes". This name derived from the fact that when you were there, you could easily lose track of time as the days would begin to run together. The name was then shortened to "Thahaab" but misunderstood by travelers who thought they were saying Dahab.

This amazing city is known because of the best diving places.
Being under water and seeing   all the amazing corals, beautiful species was breath taking. 

Eal garden, Lagoon, Blue hole, Mooreen garden, Canion, Islands and Caves, there are only few of plenty famous places to dive in Dahab. 

But I didn't fall in love in this place only because the underwater world but mainly because of the atmosphere of Dahab and the people. 
People who struggle a lot with tough life.
The tourism is not that good at the moment and you can see empty resorts and unfinished hotels looking like skeletons on the deserd.

But most of the times You still see smiling faces with a lot of positive vibes. 
I felt there like I was at home.

..Brixton carnival..

Summer  is the time for carnivals and festivals.
In London almost every weekend there is something happening (I suppose not only in ldn)
Sometimes you don't even know about it and by accident you find crowds dancing on the streets, music played everywhere, smell of food, trash on the street (more than usual) .
When all those things happen you know- it's a festival time.

Stay cool, act like you know about it, drink something and start dancing :) 

I think after Coachella Music Festival this kinds of events are now popular and more fashionable. 
(For this one who doesn't know Coachella is THE IT festival, where all cool and "wanna-be-cool'stars are going. And months after the festival you still can find (in magazines or internet )pictures of who was   wearing what-so you see that the festival garderobe is very important) 

On the festivals boho style is very welcome. 
Dress, sandals, boots, shorts, kimono and flowers in hair ;) 
The style of the outfits look like a modern hippie.
Feodora hats, fringe vests, vintage belts, cowboy shoes, maxi skirts, mini dresses, boyfriend jeans, "just wake up" hair. 
And I like it :) 

About my outfit - honestly I didn't know about the festival - I just wanted to go for a lovely lunch with M in Brixton Village and we were surprised but the amount of people on the streets ( it was lunch time).
And I just wanted to look girly but with kick. 
You do the math
Boho dress + biker boots = festival time


dress - H&M
boots - Schuh 
sunnies - Bershka
