Cardi cardi

With the summer closing in and the days getting slightly cooler for some of you, or for me, that blasted air-con just keeps, well, blasting! The best thing we can chuck on, to keep our shoulders nice and cosy, is the good 'ol cardi!

Who doesn't love a cardi?!

I am in desperate need of a new one! Whenever I'm in a shop, I'm always drawn to knitwear, even living in the hot UAE climate! I'm always picking sweaters, jumpers & cardies up and Marks just like 'you live in the sun, you don't need that!'. True to an extent, but it does have it's cool days here and I hate air con and basically, I'm just a chilly morsel! Lol!

Dead easy mustard chicken

This must be one of the easiest and quickest recipes ever.
Definitely one if you're on the go and still want to keep your meals healthy and tasty.

Skirts on sale

It's that time of year where the summer sales are in full swing and the autumnal clothes are starting to fill the rails.

I love a bargain and I love sale shopping! (who doesn't?!)

But, how many time have we picked up an item, because it's at a rock bottom price and then it ends up sitting in the back of the wardrobe never to be worn. 

Even if it only cost a few quid, it's still a waste if its never gonna see the light of day!

Hamburg Marriott Hotel

Last week Mark had to go to Hamburg for work. It was a long old slog, he ended up being delayed out there, so he worked seven days straight. A couple of days in the office before he went to Germany and the remainder were long long fourteen hour days, early starts, late finishes. He was out there for an aircraft delivery. Even though Mark is in management now, he still has his Engineering Qualifications, so is more then qualified to inspect the new aircraft and accept that it's all tip top for the company.

Dressing room inspo!

As you guys know we've recently pur-chased a house in Spain, which is a complete blank canvas, with neutral walls and floor tiles throughout. We've had our stuff shipped over from the UK that's been in storage for the last 4 and a half years and now it's time for a major sort out! Tricky when we're only there a week at a time, but nevertheless it's all good fun!

I've mentioned before that I've got the 4th bedroom as my dressing room. My dream has always been to have a walk in wardrobe and when hubby suggested, that I have one of the bedrooms as a dressing room, well, you can imagine my delight and huge smile across my face!

Bikini Edit

Picture from The Daily Mail Online

Since seeing this pic of Kim Kardashian sporting a red bikini, not only have I seriously started to step up my healthy eating/fitness regime, as like her or loathe her, she looks flippin' amazing! It's also got me thinking, it's about time for some serious bikini buying!

Internet dramas!

So, yesterday wasn't the best day for me regarding all things blog and internet related!

Mark was up mega early for work, so I got up too and made him his cup of tea while he got ready. I know I could of stayed snoozing away in the land of nod, but I think it takes the p*ss slightly, as I don't work and am completely a lady of leisure! Anyway, I am kinda ridiculously in love with the guy, so I like to do things for him! Awww....

So, with hubby safely off to work, which I will divulge more about his whereabouts in a later post for you guys! Winky face!

Doughnuts and Shopping

So, this weekend of mine was a pretty good one. 

Lot's (and I mean lot's) of Krispy Kreme doughnuts 
and a spot of shopping thrown into the mix!

In celebration of India's Independance Day, Matalan were offering 25% off everything in store over the weekend! So, we thought we had to have a little look, be rude not too!

Grand Hyatt Doha

We went to Doha back in September 2011.

We went just for the night, I think I was on a 'visa run' to activate my new residency visa. 
Instead of doing the usual there and back, Mark and I decided to make a night of it.

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt in Doha (check it out here)
We had a club room, so we had access to the lounge, which also meant 
free food and drink!

Tarragon Chicken

So, this is my first recipe post and I'm slightly nervous! 

I used to cook loads and was starting to become a bit of a whizz in the kitchen! But then we embarked on our overseas adventures and the cooking was swapped with a lot of eating out and opting for more quick and easy and well, lazy meals. 

I really want to get back into it, as I do love being in the kitchen!

OK... so here is what I made up last night, there wasn't much in the cupboards, so I threw a few things together and voilá, My Tarragon Chicken.

Kimono revisited!

Last year, I wrote a little post about the Kimono trend (here).
 Now, when I first wrote about them, there were the odd ones dotted around the shops, 
a year on and the trend is in full swing!

Weekend round-up

Once again it's the start of another week and our weekend completely flew by!

Friday for us turned out to be quite a stressful day! We had a bit of a lie in, but we were nowhere near ready to get up yet, but as we could hear a chorus of cat cries we thought we best! We headed over to the pool with intention of sitting out for a few hours, but we noticed a very questionable 'object' sitting at the bottom, so we decided to give the pool a miss and go and do our grocery shop.

I may of seemed to be a little quiet on my blog the last few days, as I haven't been posting that much. I have been here, but I've been cracking on with getting these photos, that I accidentally deleted, re-added. I've pretty much got them all sorted, just got a couple of 'picture heavy' posts to do and I'm done!
