It’s The Little Things

This Bloggerati Getaway is proudly sponsored by Dubai Tourism. I have stayed in many a hotel in my time, having travelled extensively as a young world explorer and also with my work over the past 20 years.

Back To The Real World

Back To The Real World

Well, I’m back home! … and I am in that post-travel/jet-lagged haze in which you find yourself asking, ‘did all that really happen?’ What a whirlwind of a week!

Destination Dubai

This Bloggerati Getaway is proudly sponsored by Dubai Tourism. Last night, I had a desert dream. It was a vivid experience where I was consciously trying to live in the moment.

Dreaming Of Cold Places

Dreaming Of Cold Places

It’s about this time of year, when the weather starts to get really hot (and the upcoming weekend forecast is 42 degrees celsius in the shade), that I start to think about snow covered mountains, ice bars, ski lifts and egg nog. Stumbling upon this ‘Alpine Lodge’ Lifestyle Collection, by Ralph Lauren, doesn’t help either.Continue Reading

Bastille Day 2014

Bastille Day 2014

I made a bit of an effort last night, for our Bastille Day celebrations. I cooked a nice meal and ensured that the French music was on high rotation, especially Les Mis. I have a very special affinity to that musical, as I met my husband when we were both performing in the 1995 QMTCContinue Reading
