Ebola Quarantine Nurse

I have conflicting thoughts about this one really. So, Kaci Hickox had been out in Africa with Ebola patients.  She flew back to New York, and was quarantined on arrival.  She fought back saying there was no reason to quarantine her as she was not symptomatic.  She won, and then buggered off to Maine to live…

To Monica Lewinsky, with love xx

The name is so famous, I don’t need to try and explain who she is. What many of you may not know is that Miss Lewinsky made her first public speech this week.  16 years after her life was blown apart. What an eloquent, elegant, proud, intelligent, strong and beautiful woman. To view her full speech,…

I Heart FlavorGod Seasonings

Hello.  My name is Sharon and I am a FlavorGod addict. Now that is out the way, I want to explain how wicked awesome these seasonings are! A standard pack has 4 flavours…. Garlic Lovers, Everything, Spicy Everything and Lemon & Garlic. I have just had to order Garlic Lovers again because I am nearly out.  I have…

Teaching Jessica Simpson

We have just bought on a new receptionist at work, who is utterly adorable.  At 24yrs old, my 11yr “advantage” on her makes me feel the following things, dependent on the day: 1.  Old, fat and frumpy – she quite literally looks like a young Jessica Simpson; 2.  Like a big sister – who encourages…

Post 100!!!

I feel like I should have pictures of fireworks or something, or be super clever and have sounds of cheering happening. Instead, have a picture of a piglet with attitude!

Girls’ Night

Nope… defo not Ladies Night.  There were no free drinks! For a nice and relaxed girls’ catch up and gossip night, we decided to try The Scene at Pier 7 in Dubai Marina.  Not the first choice of the night but the right choice! The Scene is owned by/the brain child of some celeb chef…

You’re welcome, ladies!!

So, I decided that today should be about promoting people who I like! I have already told you all about the hugely talented photographer friend I have in my last post.  Now is the turn of someone who I very much admire for very different reasons…. Gary “Leo” Taylor.  Or, The Iron Cowboy.

Photographer Extraordinaire

I don’t think the title of this post does the photographer in question, any justice at all. I would like to introduce you all to my amazingly talented friend, Sash DC and his phenomenal photography skills. I think it’s always hard to be unbiased about your friends’ work, so a true test of this is…

The Cinema

Hold onto your hats people… I have news… I went to the cinema! That’s right!  Me!  I went! I know to those of you who randomly stumble across this post, you won’t see what the big deal is, but anyone who knows me knows I am so not a movie go-er.  There is very few…

Lotus Hotel Apartments and Spa, Dubai Marina

My friend and I saw a voucher on Cobone (like Groupon) for “Unlimited dim sums, international buffet and pool access”. We both love Dim Sum and also a good pool day, so as this was ludicrously cheap compared to our normal haunts, we thought we would give it a bash. What can I say? There…
