Setting Goals

Do you have goals?  Not just for weight loss, but for other areas of your life? I don’t.  I am not a planner.  I know that you will find that hard to believe when I am so OCD about planning shopping lists or vacation packing lists, or touristing lists, but I just have missed that…

This explains a lot….

Yep, that’s right.  I quit smoking.  Not only that, but The Boy did too! I do have to give him the most credit though.  He actively decided that enough was enough.  He was 40 and wanted to live to see his grandchildren.  So on New Year’s Eve he smoked his last cigarette and he hasn’t…

Breakfast Burrito

After a weekend of binge eating (and the shock of getting weighed this morning) it is time for me to be good again, otherwise I will just continue to get fatter and fatter – and fatter again. I knew it would be a bad gain.  I also knew that I would feel like shit about it…

Deliveroo vs UberEats

I have done extensive research on this topic over the last few days. My findings are as such: 1. Both have a much pared down menu selection for some places.

Oops…

So after my last post which was full of good intentions, I feel that I should confess to my breakfast. Sorry about that. I do have some nice positive recipe posts all set up and ready to go. I just wanted to be honest.  Thank you to the Clinton Street Baking Company for once again…

This blog started as a way to keep people up to date with my travels as I left Bermuda and eventually moved to Dubai.  Then it was to show people around Dubai as I adventured.  Then it mostly just turned into restaurant reviews because eating my way around is how I discover new places! Well,…

Miss Lily’s Dubai

Everyone, and I mean literally everyone I know has been talking about Miss Lily’s recently, and I smugly am able to tell them how much fun it is because I went at the beginning of November!  (Yep… This post has been in draft for quite a while!!!) For those of you who don’t know my history,…

Best Indian Restaurant, EVER.

I am not a huge fan of partying in the New Year.  I would much rather have a nice meal or some nice nibbles at home.  New Year’s Eve also happens to be my little sister’s birthday so it’s more of a family time than a party time. This year was no exception.  I didn’t…

Happy New Year!

Ok, so we are 19 days in to the new year but the sentiment still counts! It’s been a bit hectic.  The Boy and I decided VERY last minute to fly back to the UK and surprise my Mum for Christmas.  I think it worked too… My awesome sister had bought us the absolute BEST…
