The first time I went to Ikea, it was an awful-horrible-caffeine headache-low-blood sugar nightmare. It was also within the first few months of the store opening so it was overcrowded with people. That's why I'm surprised I talked myself into going back and trying again.
And guess what people, there's one in Dubai... and I visited it the other day. And even though it was only for a bit and for very necessary items... I still got my fix.
This is me in New Haven, CT 2 days before I left for Dubai
I used the display couches for comfort and a little reading while my mother shopped.
(You can tell it's pre-Dubai because I'm wearing shorts... I don't do that anymore)
This is what it looks like on the other side of the world.
One of these days I'll take a picture of the inside, much like the one above...
Because don't you worry, I'll go back!
