Lusting After - Denim Skirts

I must admit for as long as I can remember, I've always been a fan of denim skirts. They're so wearable and versatile, they can be dressed up, or dressed down for pretty much any occasion. They can be worn with heels, flats, trainers, sandals, boots, well, pretty much everything! 

Sadly though, I haven't been able to find myself that perfect denim skirt for a while now. Don't get me wrong I do see lot's of 'short' skirts in the shops and even though they are really cute, I am getting to the age where I don't think I can quite get away with a little mini anymore! Well, maybe on the beach or on holiday, but for my everyday life (especially here in the UAE, a butt skimming mini isn't really the way forward!). 

I'm quite excited that the slightly longer hemline is becoming more and more popular. I've had a browse at some of my favorite online shops and have picked a few out to share with you. 

A knee length denim skirt is definitely on top of my list for my next purchase. I really think it's worth spending a little bit extra then you normally would (if your budget allows) as you can pretty much wear a denim skirt all year round, so it's worth getting one that's good quality and will last. Anyway, when you factor in the spend per wear it really won't end up costing you that much at all! #womenlogic

Need a 'Pick-me-up?'

We all have those days when we feel well, meh...

Mope around for maybe no reason whatsoever and just can't find any inspiration or motivation to do anything with our day.

Now, I have felt like this on many of occasions and I'm sure I'm not alone either. But my friends this really isn't healthy for us and we should try to 'snap' ourselves out of it as soon as we notice the 'mehness' creeping in.

I've put together a little list of ideas to do if you find yourself getting like this and need to, well, Pick yourself up!


1. Listen to some music (no sad stuff though! Only the songs that'll get you singing and moving!)

2. Go for a walk - Instant mood booster

3. Have a cup of tea - always a winner with me!

4. Have a shower/bath with your favorite products

5. Phone a friend and have a good 'ol natter!

6. Watch a comedy/ fave film/ box set (again, no sad stuff!)

7. Exercise! Seriously have a workout, you'll feel tons better and it will give you a good energy boost!

8. Sort out your drawers & wardrobe (you'll get so engrossed re-organizing everything and sorting out a donation pile, you'll forget you were feeling, meh!)

9. Give yourself a DIY mani pedi! 

10. Set up a Pinterest board with quotes and pictures that'll make you smile and give you a boost! (check mine out here!)

Mums visit

Eek! 4th of February since I last posted!! Sorry if you've missed me, but I have a good excuse this time! My lovely Mum has been visiting us for the last ten days from the UK. So, I've been playing hostess and being a very good daughter by keeping my Mum company by the pool (things you have to do, lol!). We had a flippin' fab time and as usual it went far too quick! The house feels very empty and quiet now, but I have been throwing myself into the housework (I'm such a domestic goddess, haha) to keep myself busy.

I won't bore you with too many pics of my Mums visit. I was planning on doing a few blog posts of the restaurants, coffee shops, places we visited, but we were too busy gassing away and before I had a chance to take any photos for you guys, we had gobbled our food and ordered the next round of drinks!

So, the places we did go to, I'm just gonna have to drag hubby along again and enjoy the food, drinks and surroundings all in the name of blogging! The things we have to do, hehe!

We stayed local to Ras Al Khaimah and here's a few pics of me and my Mum out and about around Al Hamra.

We had a lovely lunch one day at 
the luxurious Banyan Tree








 Followed by a stroll round to the Hilton for a cheeky
afternoon Corona at Mai Tai





 Some pics from our morning walks
around Al Hamra Village





Great memories made and lot's of laughs had. We're hoping to rendezvous in Spain in the summer, but that seems so far away at the moment! I'm sure the time will go quick and we'll be sipping on cocktails together again!

Thanks for a fab time Mum, Love you x x x
