NBC’s The Voice – The Results!!!

NB: I am exhausted so this will be littered with spelling errors and typos! I can’t believe it’s the last one tonight! What am I going to do?! I am going to have to actually start having a life again so that I have something to blog about!! I have literally spent today avoiding social…

NBC’s The Voice – The Finals!

IT’S THE FINALS!!!! Yes, I know I used caps, because that’s how excited I am! I can’t even wait until tomorrow to watch everything together… I am watching it now!!! Here we go!!!! 3 songs! A coach picked on, a duet with their coach (cannot wait for Craig/Blake!) and an original! Woop!

NBC’s The Voice – Semi Finals

Blake Shelton opened the show and that on it’s own made me happy! He has such a beautiful voice. I could have done without the blonde chick that was singing with him. But it was still very good. I heart him. Anyway, the other news is that one person eliminated from the final 12 gets…

Christmas Trees!!

I am a bit obsessed with Christmas Trees this week.  Normally I like them well enough, but this week I can’t walk past them without taking pictures.  Thankfully, there aren’t that many. Here is my collection of pics so far…

Dubai: The Only City Couponing is Cool!

We are bargain hunters in Dubai.  I think it stems from the fact that it’s quite an expensive city to live in and so if we can make a little saving here and there, we will!  Where else are there gleeful emails saying “I have a voucher for there” flying in after a proposed girls…

Dubai Rugby 7s

I am going to be controversial here… I do not like it. I can hear all the gasps (of two of my three readers – Mum won’t be surprised) all the way from here.  It is wrong, right!  Sevens is an awesome event and everyone has bucket loads of fun… except me. If you don’t…

NBC’s The Voice – Top 8

It’s that time of the week… My catch up of The Voice! And, I have just found out 3 people are going home! Eek! So, here is my mindless ramblings!! Ryan Sill Stunning vocal. Just perfect. I don’t think people quite understand how high that was to hit perfectly in full voice, not in falsetto,…

O’Cacti Update

35hrs nearly from my email to the manager and still no response. However, I have been to see the Consultant Gastroenterologist at my local clinic. He has confirmed I have food poisoning, so it wasn’t a wheat issue. So that’s good…. Ummmmm…….. Oh, and one of the other girls at dinner was sick too. I…

#FeelNoShame

Today is World AIDS Day.  Red, the colour to wear.  Red ribbons if not. But how many people do?  I vote not so many. HIV and AIDS are so stigmatized still, that even supporting a charity and wearing a ribbon is too much for some people.  It is really sad.  It needs to be changed….

O’Cacti, Pier 7, Dubai Marina

Dreadful service, below average food, and then a side order of obnoxious bully…. Minor issues we had included staff not being able to understand us.  We literally had to speak to 4 people to order wine.  We were also largely ignored when trying to get attention to order our meal. My main issue arises from…
