Well……hello! Yes, its been a little while since I’ve seen you guys on here but I’m back! Well as back as much as I can ha, ha.
So where have I been? Well you know……sometimes life gets in the way and as some of you may know, I spent the past 5 months in Ireland so it was quite an adjustment settling back into desert-life with two small kiddies.
We’re getting there but my little girl still pines for Ireland everyday, she’s probably missing the fresh air as much as me and the fact that you can at least go outside. Yes, its still so bloody hot and humid here and yes I posed for these photos in the mid-day heat at a plant souk in the actual desert in about one billion degrees Celsius! Sweaty-Betty had nothing on me!
We also moved house!! Ok so it went relatively well (What is that they say? Moving house is one of the most stressful things you will ever do?) but yes moving countries again and moving house all in the same month is not ideal and hence why I’ve been absent from my blog. So between furniture shopping, organising the new place and getting distracted by various ‘Scandi-chic’ inspired Instagram accounts and Pinterest boards, it’s been hectic. But kinda getting there now and trying to make some time again for my blog. I do need to give it a bit of a revamp so bare with me if you can (and if you want!!!) as I do enjoy it and I really hope you guys enjoy it too?
While I have you here, how fab is this dress from Tiny-Toots! I mean……it had me from the get-go with the red gingham! It’s actually a bardot-style, off-the-shoulder dress but I’ve styled it a bit differently and wearing it a tad higher for an alternative look. I’ve actually been wearing this a lot lately especially on the school-runs (oh yes……my daughter started school so another reason life has been a bit mayhem) and it is the perfect attire for this time of year in Dubai or anywhere in fact that suffers from terrible humidity.
I’ve also teamed it with a pair of white Converse (staple-wardrobe item doncha’ know!) to give it a very relaxed, easy and casual look. It really is my ‘go-to’ dress at the moment as it equally looks fab on a night out with some cute ankle boots or killer heels and of course a statement choker. Tiny-toots can be found on Instagram and on Facebook as well as the well-known Ripe Market every weekend in Dubai. Fashionista and proprietor Colette has a massive array of styles to suit everyone and is on top of her game when it comes to the newest trends around. FYI her Autumn/Winter collection which she has been working really hard on is ‘to-die-for’.
I have to say…….it’s nice to be back! I’ve missed you guys and I’ve missed the blog! I’ve a beauty post in the pipeline hopefully for next week and if I can bribe my Instagram husband to take some pics, maybe some ‘fashioney’ posts will make an appearance? But for now, life will continue to ‘get-in-the-way’ and sometimes you know…….it’s good to take a break! As they say “sometimes a break from your routine is the very thing you need”.
