Well, hello there! It’s certainly been a while. I have been studying and training for my Pilates mat as well being a busy little bee with my YouTube channel! Yes, that’s right, after years of procrastinating about it, I only finally went and did it! Hurrah!! The title is misleading, I don’t have a ring light or fancy camera but I am getting my action … Continue reading Lights..Camera..Action!
I think I am a tortoise! Seriously, after recently being told tortoises don’t drink water, they get all the fluids they need from vegetables, it reminded me that I hardly ever drink water, which has been a life-long problem for me. Water maintains body temperature and maintains blood circulation, and I tend to only drink water when I am thirsty, so to discover H30 by … Continue reading Hello Beautiful, Hydrated Skin
After 4 days of intensive training including lectures, 45 hours of additional training, a written exam, and a practical exam (which was being filmed) I became a pilates graduate! I chose to study with A Life of Energy, co-founded by Australian health expert, Caroline Leon, an incredibly strong woman who I have come to admire. With 2 degrees (Medical Science being one of them), Caroline … Continue reading Journey of a Pilates Graduate
Gosh, it’s been a while hasn’t it? I have so much to blog about but I honestly don’t know where to start. I guess I should let you all know that my UK phone is out of use at the moment until I go back to England (so for everyone with my UK number, send me an email so I can send you all my … Continue reading Ramadan, broken iPhone and stuff!
On the 36th floor of the H hotel, you’ll find a sweet little spot aptly named ‘Play’. I heard about this place last year and also heard/read mixed reviews, some positive and some, not so positive. Either way, I like to judge for myself, so I finally headed over with Mr QB, She-earl, Madame Sara Larabi and Miss fusspot Mary, a good mix of people … Continue reading Play with your food
Although Ramadan is just a few days away and I will be going on my annual social media detox, this week has been unexpectedly full on and unusually experimental…I’m talking about food here, I finally got to visit some of the places on my bucket list and first up is Treehouse Lounge, the ultra-cool rooftop spot at the Taj Hotel in Business Bay. It’s hard … Continue reading Playtime at the Treehouse
Not long after I arrived in Dubai, I was suffering from the most horrendous rash on my neck. I have one picture which was when the rash was on it’s ‘best behaviour’, so it wasn’t so bad BUT at times, it was scaly, red, sore and looked TERRIBLE! I tried everything and went to dermatologists and doctors who told me it was ‘an allergy’. I … Continue reading Skin bacteria
I tried to be vegan and lasted all of…..one day. I just can’t survive without chocolate, look up chocaholic and you’ll see my mugshot (while I am typing this blog, I have already been through A LOT of French chocolate, thanks Carine). Although I failed at veganism, some incredible vegan brands have scored big time with me. First up is Aromi Matte Liquid Lipsticks, a … Continue reading Beauty goes Vegan
Ohlala, where has the time gone? I can’t believe my last blog post was 2 months ago! I’m not a fan of GIFs but this one is so appropriate for how I feel right now. Time flies rather unnaturally in Dubai, it’s so strange how sometimes I am completely unaware of the day of the week. Now, I can totally understand how people have ended up … Continue reading Au revoir 2015, Bonjour 2016
Avid Ballerina and certified Pilates and Reformer Pilates instructor – Ha, really is a true testament to her teaching, I admire her healthy, toned physique, her dedication to her students and I thoroughly enjoy her method of teaching. For me, Ha is the Queen of Reformer. From the age of 7, in her native country Vietnam, Ha took up free dance and ballet at a … Continue reading Queen of Reformer Pilates
