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,…

Merry Christmas!!!

I don’t go in for all this “seasons greetings” or “happy holidays’ bollox.  It’s Christmas and I’m excited!! So much so, that I have changed the look of my blog for the next week! Also, I have a beautiful real tree this year…

Oops… again!

So, I appear to have fallen a little lot behind with my blog again.  I blame the festive season.  It was all go!  But on the plus side, not only do I have all the lovely Joburg and Cape Town stuff to catch up with, but a host of Dubai experiences too!  This should keep…

How incredibly sad that this point has been missed by so many people. Let me explain…

The Great Gatsby Gala

Birthdays can be fairly big out here in Dubai. You don’t have your family with, so your friends band around and make sure you have a good time! My friend Denise always has the best ideas for birthdays, and the celebration of her 35th birthday which she hosted this year was probably the best yet……

Heavenly Hair, again!

Yep!  That’s right!  I went back to visit Hair God, Stylianos at Jet Set in Jumeirah Emirates Towers.  Not only did he do my hair, but this time he did my eye make up for me be because I am entirely useless. Not sure how many words I need for this.   Just have a look at…

Ladies Night(s)

One of my New Years resolutions (I didn’t make any at the time, but have decided on this now) is to try out the ladies nights now I have moved to a more sociable neighbourhood! So, I have! Here are my musings: Karma Kafe Based in Souk Al Bahar, this lively bar gives ladies 3 free…
