Purina Arabia

A few weeks ago, a fab little goody bag for my fur-babies turned up from the lovely people at Purina Arabia. I was sooo excited and Poppy and Lily were very intrigued too.

Apartment Etiquette

We've been living in the apartment for a month now and after 4 short weeks I have observed some outrageously inconsiderate behaviour from our neighbours!

Now, my husband did have reservations about moving to an apartment because of potential noise, but me trying to be the optimist convinced him that it'll be absolutely fine and the apartment blocks aren't full, so there surely couldn't be that much noise. Anyway, people aren't that inconsiderate are they?

YES! Yes they are!

If you live in an apartment I'm sure you've come across some of these scenarios or if you are completely oblivious to this and think you maybe guilty of conducting one or two of these apartment crimes, please read, stop and have some consideration for your fellow neighbours!

Lusting After - Mango Bags!

If you know me, you'd know I'm a bit of a bag lady, lol. I loooove bags! Can't get enough of them.

When we were last in Spain I got myself a stripy backpack from Deichmann. I love being 'hands free' and it's great for travelling. Some of my 'hand bags' recently, even though I do still love them, they're starting to annoy me slightly, as I feel like I'm carrying around a doctors bag or something, lol. They just feel far too formal for my daily life.

I'm after more of a casual shoulder bag or cross-body bag to take me into summer. I do still love a boho clutch though (gutted the one I got from Primark last summer, pretty much fell apart after only a couple of uses, sad face - I will have to get my sewing kit out and try to rescue the poor thing!).

Bathroom Selfie!

If you follow my Instagram you would of seen on Wednesday I posted a 'bathroom selfie'! Now, I keep seeing the 'bathroom selfie' on my feed so I thought, why not! Ha, a bit fun and my new bathroom has a huge mirror (and I've sold the full length one now!! So this is the only mirror in the teeny tiny new pad!)

I think it turned out alright! What do you think?! I'll be honest I took quite a few!! I think that's normal of the 'selfie'. Please just re-assure me, that it's not just me that takes a zillion pictures before deciding on the right one, then take a few more, you know, just in case they come out better! Crumbs, what have we turned into???? Selfie loving society!! Ahh, it's all a bit of fun, Oh and hubby, I'm still waiting for my selfie stick, hint, hint, wink, wink!!

Catch up

I've noticed that my posts seem to be far and few between lately. Too be honest I'm not too chuffed about it, but I don't just want to 'chuck' out posts for the sake of it. I'm gonna try to be more about the 'quality' then the 'quantity'. After all, my blog isn't a job, it's my little hobby, a little piece of me, my small, ickle place on the internet.

The last month has been kinda busy and quite a lot going on. After my Mum went home (you can see a little bit of her visit here) we packed up our villa and moved to a little one bed apartment. We're still in the same area, but after renting the villa for two years our rent went up a whopping 49%!

The rents here in the UAE are crazy at the moment, especially in Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah are catching on to this. A lot of people are feeling the increase and are returning back to their home countries. With the mega rise in rents and the general cost of living going up, with no real salary in…
