F&F Monochrome flat shoe and 25% Sale!

The other day I spied these flats in a F&F store here in Ras Al Khaimah. Now I know some of you at home, when I say home I'm talking the UK, as you're probably thinking it's only Tesco clothes, but I seriously really like their stores and was so happy when they started to pop up in the UAE! I used to do the grocery shopping in Tesco at home and I'd always have a good mooch around the clothing section and something would always slip in the trolley! Haha.

Anyway, back to the shoes, I was immediately in love and when I tried them on, OMG! perfect. I wasn't sure how the 'white' would look, but it looks so good. I had jeans on at the time and they were the perfect match for a pair of denims. With any flat of course, they go with pretty much everything, skirts/shorts/dresses/maxi skirts etc etc.

Anyway, I'm holding out for National Day here on the 2nd, as I'm hoping there will be a sale! Whether or not there is, they're a really good price anyway, at 89 AED. But I've seen that online at Tescos they have 25% off EVERYTHING! until Monday night! OMG! Amazing! Check it out here! Get yourself on there guys, they have soooo much good stuff!!!!

Let me know if you purchase anything!

Happy shopping!

Chit chat

Happy Thursday Guys! And of course, Happy Thanksgiving, to those who are celebrating!

I hope everyone's having a great week. I've been home alone the last few nights, as Marks been away in Russia on business. He started off in Samara for a night then headed to Kazan via Moscow. He gets back tonight which I'm soo looking forward too! Mark whatsapp'd me a few pics he snapped from his hotel window in Kazan, one from last night then two this morning, where he woke up to a very snowy view! I am slightly jealous of this, as I love to wrap up in a nice warm coat and boots in the winter and Europe is always so lovely this time of year. I'm sure though, after a couple of days in the cold, I'd be itching to get back to the sunny desert!

Did you see that huge castle?! It's The White Stone Kremlin that was built in the 12th century. A little bit of info there for you! I can't take credit for it, I had a look on the hotels website for the info! The Mirage Hotel Kazan.

We haven't many plans for the weekend, chill out mainly, going for walks and mixing it up with some jogging! I ended up running yesterday during my walk and even though I was pooped when I got in, I actually loved it!

We're planning on going to Dubai Friday afternoon, just for a mooch around the shops and for a spot of lunch. Also, I want to have a look at the Christmas Tree at the Waldorf Astoria here in Ras Al Khaimah, it looks stunning from their pics!

What are you guys up to this weekend? 
Have a good one!

Water water everywhere

So, when I used to fly (yep, I did work once lol!) I used to get told all the time 'you've got lovely skin' and asked 'what's your secret?'. OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration, I got asked this once haha, but it could of been more, it could of been!!! Anyway, I'm sure this was at the very beginning of my flying career, where I was young, fresh faced and bushied tailed! It wasn't though until I started flying, that I realised how important water is for you and how as humans, we can get crazy dehydrated all the time. When I was flying the skies I drank shed loads of water. Seriously, I drank so much and I'd still feel ridiculously dehydrated after a flight. Those days are over and even though I'm not stuck in a metal tube for ten hours plus at a time, I still make sure I drink at least 1.5 litres each and every day.

The benefits of water are amazing. Going back to the lady on the flight, my answer was 'I drink loads of water'. Which was true, as I've never really used anything special on my skin or had a regular beauty routine. I mean you can have all the fancy lotions and potions in the world, but good old fashioned water is the best thing for your complexion. Drinking water flushes out all the toxins in your body and again keeps you hydrated which is so important. It's not just about keeping hydrated living in the heat or summer time, wherever you are in the world, whatever the temperature, it's so important and good for you to drink water all the time.

If you think to yourself 'I'm never going to be able to drink all that in one day'.Well you can, it's easy! We always fill up a 1.5 litre bottle and drink from that, as it's so much easier to keep track of your water intake. If you're a fan of fizzy drinks, first of all please, please, please switch to the diet variety and then try to swap it for water. After a few weeks you will feel tons better!

When drinking alcohol, which I do, I'm no saint! But I always try to alternate the alcoholic drink with a glass of water. If you're out having a meal, order a bottle of water along with your vino (you'll be thankful you did in the morning!). It's so easy to include water into having a tipple!

A good tip is also to take a small bottle of water in the car with you. I always make sure I have a bottle in my handbag for when I'm out and about at the shops. Trust me, it's very handy when you're in the changing room trying on clothes and start working up a sweat!

Another great tip is, if you're feeling 'hungry' have a glass of water and wait a little while before you make a beeline for the fridge. Most of the time you're just thirsty and not actually hungry! Drinking lot's of water is great if you're trying to shed a few lbs too.

So, I found this picture on the internet with a few things about what water does for you - take a look, it's quite interesting!

Do you drink loads of water? What's your tips for keeping hydrated and making sure you drink enough each day? Love to know your thoughts!

Kylie Jenner AMA's 2014

I know, I know, the American Music Awards were on Sunday and you're probably thinking, why is she going on about it now, that's old news!? Well, I maybe a little behind on getting in there and reporting my faves of the night, but in my defence, here in the UAE everything get's shown a few days later, so I've only just got to see the outfits on E! Live on the Red Carpet today (always my main source for everything celebrity!). I did however, spot a few looks on the internet, but wanted to wait till I've seen them on screen to give my final opinion lol.

I'm sure I haven't seen them all, but of the ones I have seen, if I'm honest, not too many stood out for me this year. I loved Fergie's Halston Heritage black dress, with the thigh high split and the gold detail. She looked absolutely stunning. And her hair, OMG! Gorgeous!

My favourite though, has to be Kylie Jenner. She looked perfection to me. Kylie wore a gorgeous Alexander Vauthier deep burgundy, satin maxi dress, also with a thigh high split, matching nails and too die for, Tamara Mellon, Fever Fishnet shoes here! I think Kylie has such a cool 'rock chick' style. Wearing her hair in a messy bun, but keeping her jewellery simple, she kept this look, young, edgy and bang on point! Perfect!

If you want to channel your inner Kylie Jenner, check out some of these more purse friendly dresses I've found for you guys! Check them out here // here // here & here.

What was your favourite look of this years AMA's?
