Stories I loved this week.
I cannot believe it’s September already. The summer officially started for me at the end of June when I finished by my last exam, and with all the travel and family activities I’ve been doing, these past two months have really flown by. I was in Abu Dhabi this week for work and we’re off on a much needed family holiday to Formentera tomorrow. I really can’t wait. I’ll be trying not to overpost all of our lovely meals and beach trips on Instagram.
