OK, so as of the beginning of April 2018, I didn't know how to swim. As a child, I was never sent to a swimming class, and I eventually developed a fear of going anywhere beyond the shallow side of the pool, or letting go of the wall. Worse, I have friends who have tales … Continue reading Want to learn how to swim in Dubai?
So after my 'where to Zumba' and 'where to learn dancing' posts, it occurred to me that I've also tried quite a few barre classes in Dubai and figured I'd share my experiences to anyone else interested.

Books - an easy way to get … Continue reading Stationery I love: Surat Journals, your little blank book

Recently, I wandered over to the Lush Christmas event in Dubai, and boy, was that literally a feast for the senses! New products, new colours and beautiful gift boxes everywhere. … Continue reading Lush’s 12 Days of Christmas

As a student on the MA Magazine Journalism course, we're encouraged (obviously) to not only look at newspapers, but also at magazines. My course leader, Ms. Yvonne Illsley, cannot recommend Vanity Fair enough. I have a confession to make. I always thought it was a magazine full of gloss and fluff and nothing else.
