The Spectacular ‘La Perle’

Wow, wow and wow again! After a terribly long and hard day of tanning, Mum and I got all prettied up and headed out to see the new-ish extravaganza written, designed and choreographed solely for Dubai.  It is literally the only place you will ever see this in the world. Seeing La Perle is an…

‘Slight’ delays… again!

It turns out that I’ve been having such a ball with Mummy that I haven’t had time to write any posts!  I knew this would happen because we always really enjoy our time together, but I really tried (for the first couple of days!) to keep on top of things. Oh well! I have now…

Kite Beach, Dubai

Winter in Dubai is glorious! We spend months cooped up in the summer when the temperature is so hot your internal organs are at risk of melting. It cools off in the autumn but not by a huge amount. It also gets humid which just makes it hot and sticky. Then, around the end of…

Yay me! Yay you! Yay everyone!

I was just on Instagram having a little chat with the marvelously talented and beautiful Cara of RainyBayBlog (hello!) about self promotion.  She made a wonderful post about her many accomplishments and how proud she was of herself.  She mentioned that she felt a bit “cringy” about being so vocal and we both agreed that…

My GM Diet/Detox Experiment

As anyone who knows me or has seen my photo knows,  I carry a few extra lbs on my frame.  Or rather a lot.  Depending on which photo you have seen!  Currently however, my weight has rocketed and I don’t like it at all.  I am uncomfortable and unhappy and so I decided I needed…

3 Day Juice Cleanse – Day 2

7.30am – Snuggle back down into duvet as no breakfast making means longer lay in. 7.45am – Go waste time in the shower. 8.00am – Start Juice 1 shots. 8.01am – Get pleasant surprise that the juice tastes better today. 8.23am – Have last shot.

3 Day Juice Cleanse – Day One

Day One 8.00am – The Boy has charged off to Freshii in an excited whir to pick up our juices. 8.01am – Decide to hide in the shower for a bit longer. 8.15am – He is back and I’m getting nagged to come and have breakfast. 8.16am – I hate this week already. 8.20am – My…

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…

Claw BBQ Crabshack & Grill, Dubai

I would like to give a shout out to Claw in Souk Al Bahar, which is consistently good.  So few places are anymore. From the food to the team; there is no bad here as far as I can tell. I had a bit of a rubbish day so to cheer me up The Boy took…

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…
