Dubai Cinemas

One of the things I was most looking forward about her holiday, was taking Mum to the cinema.  It’s not something she really does at home, and having seen the local cinemas I’m not surprised. It’s not the same in Dubai, obvs!  We not only have regular cinemas that are twice as roomy (and so…

Elia, Majestic Hotel, Dubai

  Does anyone ever want to cook anything after spending the day at the beach?  Unless it’s a BBQ of course.  That can happen.  But regular cooking always seems so hard.  Knowing this, we planned accordingly and booked to go out for dinner. Quite fittingly for our ‘holiday’ inspired day, we found ourselves at Elia…

New Year’s Eve, 2017

When in Dubai for New Year celebrations, there is only one thing you should do… you should see the fireworks at the Burj Khalifa.  Sadly this year they announced that the fireworks were cancelled and were being replaced with a light and lazer show. I cannot tell you how disappointed I was.  The only other…

The Rubbing House, Epsom Downs

We had been running errands around the old neighborhood all morning when suddenly, hunger struck.  It was a traumatic experience.  I was surrounded by places that I had grown up around but nothing looked quite how I remembered, or of it did, that was enough to put me off!  After a unreasonably long time, I…

True Hollywood Horror Stories

Anyone who has seen a newspaper, a news website, heard the news on the radio, or seen a tv screen with the news playing will know that there has been a bit of a scandal in Hollywood this week. Harvey Weinstein, a big name in both tv and movies, has been accused of sexually harassing…

Wanderlust? Actually, just wondering why.

I honestly don’t know where to start this post.  I know I’ve said that before but this one really has me scratching my head.  I did think about not writing but I decided that I had to.  Someone had to anyway, and that may as well be me. Before I go any further, all opinions…

Brunch at Coya

Hello everyone!  I’m back… sort of.  I never meant to be away.  It just kind of happened.  I ran out of words again. But thanks to my friend’s birthday brunch at Coya this weekend, I have plenty! Coya is the Four Season’s Peruvian offering, and I’ve heard some really good things about it.  I’ve also…

3 Day Juice Cleanse

The Boy and I have decided that our cuddly bits are getting a bit too fluffy.  We are constantly falling on and off the diet wagon.  Mostly off to be fair.  It’s very nice being with someone who understands weight issues (he is the 2015 Mr. winner chap for his SW group), but it also…

London Will NEVER Fall

I have so many words today that this could be a jumbled mess that I never remember the actual starting point for.  On the plus side it won’t be as bad as it could be as it’s first thing in the morning and so there is no wine involved. I was sat on my couch last…

Walden Farms vs Choc Shot

This is a very short post because there is no debate in my mind…. Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup kicks Sweet Freedom’s Choc Shot ass.  It isn’t as watery and it has a better and less synthetic chocolate taste. I can’t compare any other flavours because this is the
