“He Named Me Malala”, Netflix

In a break from my normal endless stream of trashy TV (which reminds me, I have a lot of Dynasty to catch up on!), I found myself strangely drawn to a documentary about Malala Yousefzai. A couple of years ago I was in an Uber on my way to RAK and the normal ‘where are…

Cove Beach Dubai

Another day, another beach!  It really is such a hard life some days!  This time it was a beach club we opted for after a recommendation by a coworker.  I have mixed feelings about beach clubs but figured that it couldn’t be too bad as it was a week day.

Pure Anger

There was a Facebook post the other day that asked what the first item of news is that you remember.  My family never had the news on very much.  Mum doesn’t like that kind of negativity in the house.  But I do remember the case of James Bulger.  I doubt anyone in the UK could…

Sticks and stones

We are all told that little rhyme when we are growing up. It’s meant to keep us safe from mean words.  Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.  It’s great in theory but it’s a lie. Words can hurt horrendously.  It’s an obvious thing really. Don’t use the n-word…

Hairdressing Adventures in Dubai

Or, as I like to refer to it… the ongoing search for someone who doesn’t f*ck my hair up. I had the wonderful Stylianos take care of me for so long.  He did wonders with my strange decisions of the time.  He managed to get me back to a decent blonde after it was dark brown and…

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…

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…

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

Avoca-do or don’t?

  According to Slimming World rules, avocados have syns.  10 syns per 100g to be precise.  It seems like a lot. The avocado pear is one of the most nutrient packed fruits around.  It has vitamins B, C, E and K for a start.  It also has a bunch of other things that I can’t remember and…
