Thursday we all packed up and went up to Dubai straight after school. Our ex-neighbour Kristen had been invited to this event celebrating the opening of a new shop in Dubai by bag brand Carpisa, and needed a +1. So while Linnea and I went to stay with her, Aiden and the pups; Lucas and Nathan went to see the Dehli boys who were home alone.
There was six of us girls going, and we were all very excited as the brand ambassador Penélope Cruz was going to be at the event, which was held at the lush night club Armani Privé.
As we arrived fashionably late, we also arrived in the middle of the fashion show:
Then it was time for Penélope Cruz to say a few words:
But disappointingly, she didn't do any meet & greet, so no selfies with Penélope. Such a shame, as there wasn't really that many people at the event, but I guess she had somewhere else to be!
This is as close as we got, what a pretty lady she is!
Anyway, Penélope or no Penélope, we enjoyed our evening, the champagne and the dancing. It's not every day you get to party at the Burj Khalifa!
