The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

Dubai Part 3

Dubai Part 3

Dubai shopping offers amazing opportunities. The age-old souks, ultra-modern shopping malls and promise of tax-free prices redefine the whole concept of retail therapy. Dubai is known as the shopping capital of the Middle East, and the best bargains are generally in the souks. Even luxury items such as carpets, electronics, gold and textiles can be bought relatively cheaply if you know where to look when you are shopping in Dubai. No wonder that for many, Dubai shopping is practically a way of life.

Alexandra has just read me the above.

Alexandra: "Well, let's go do some retail therapy! After being man-handled by those jewel thieves, I need something to take my mind off this nasty business! If Mr. Smythe knew what had happened here we would all be in trouble! I can see him now cutting off my credit cards." We both start laughing, like that is ever going to happen in our lifetimes! I almost hate to leave this suite, it is really amazing!"

Cate: "I just called for a car. We can take Mummy and Evelyn with us as we check out the best malls in the world. Care to ski?" Alexandra is rolling her eyes now and laughing.

And that is what we did! Laden with lovely packages from the most exquisite shopping I have ever seen, we had to buy luggage for our return flight.

Note: Mummy and Evelyn did not ski but they put on skies and had their pictures taken. I heard Mummy saying something about, "Wouldn't this picture be fun for the Christmas card this year." Those two, yes they might be the death of me and my father but they are worth their weight in gold and more!

The rest of the short trip was spent quietly around the hotel, other than seeing the sites with the Hotel Manager. He was still so concerned about our nasty experience.

Fast Forward!

We have just put Mummy and Evelyn on their flight back to England.

Alexandra: "Whew! At least they are safe and sound. And finally on their way home! Even though I have to admit I was a bit afraid of those men, when your Mother stepped on that pig's foot with her Louboutin heels I wanted to cheer! One should never tick off Mummy!"

Cate: "Or you either my dear! Your screams could be heard probably all over the city! But the good news is my father is meeting their arrival at Heathrow and all has ended well. What do they say? All's well that ends well? Thank you for being my BFF!"

Alexandra: "Well my dear it is always another adventure where Mummy is involved. I've got a really good idea." And then she gives me her wink! "Let's explore the airport; I hear the shopping here is nothing short of heaven!" We both break out in galls of laughter and link arms, as we proceed to saunter down the concourse for just one more hour of retail therapy before they call our flight!

So now after more retail therapy, two showers, and four meals later, we are home. What an adventure! I think I will stay put for a bit!

XOXO,

Cate
