“the right bra can change your life in an instant” ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป. new post on the blog talking about the importance of wearing a good-fitting (and correct size!) bra and how a bra-fitting should be your first port-of-call if shopping for a new wardrobe! did you know that 80% of women wear the wrong size bra?? i’m also chatting about my recent bra-fitting and how i feel that my b*****s have been served quite the injustice for the past few decades ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜ฑ #linkinbio #breastfriends . . . #tkdlingerie #brafitting #lingerie #underwear #shopping #wardrobe #capsulewardrobe #love #important #yes #thatsdarling #aboutalook #lookbook #ootd #mood #sundayfunday #sundayvibes #blogpost #new #stylist #fashiondiaries #dubaiblogger #truth #good #fit #body #confidence #shape

Does anyone else upon entering a restaurant look for a spot as far away as possible from everyone else because you have a toddler that likes to escape from ‘jail’ (his highchair) and throw crayons around the room (which are courtesy of the restaurant) and shout so much that people start to stare? anyone? i have to hand it to the staff at @bateelgourmet though who were ‘on point’ when it came to catering for the kiddies and made my experience there this morning less stressful. we tried out their new kids menu which was divine (they just know how to do great eggs there ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป) and then made a quick exit after the yummy ice cream which the kids inhaled (and me) turned them into ‘sugar-rush’ maniacs. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿฆ(more on instastories). . . . #parentingtheshitoutoflife #lifewithkids #cafebateel #mybateelmoment #yum #kids #momlife #breakfast #butfirst #coffee #instafood #pursuepretty #petitejoys #thehappynow #thatsdarling #darlingmovement #goodmorning #mydubai #mystyle #photography #smile #fun #familytime #love #picoftheday #livethelittlethings #weekendvibes #saturday #mood

Ok, here’s the deal! i’m not a fan of those ‘tag’ things on here, in fact i usually ignore them but seen as i’m in a good mood today ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ™ˆ and seen as the lovely @adventureswithkaya tagged me - i thought 5 is a bit more manageable and my memory could perhaps cope, coz 2 kids later, it’s non-existent! so here goes - warning - they’re mostly related to my flying-days coz that’s when all the ‘interesting’ s**z happened #justsayin ๐Ÿ˜œ. 1. my husband is from south africa, i met him in dubai & we got married in malta. 2. i once ended up in tijuana in mexico with no passport. me and my aer lingus crew were on a 4-nighter la trip and drove to mexico with no passports (like who does that ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ). we spent the day in tijuana eating fajitas and hanging out (it’s as dodgy af!!) and had to convince the us border control that we were not runaway fugitives (with no passports) and that our aircraft was waiting for us back in la to bring us back to dublin. the possibility of jail was mentioned at one point ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿคฃ. 3. i once had david and victoria beckham on a flight from dublin to manchester. they had just got engaged and were let’s just say ‘infatuated’ with each other. at one point the turbulence was so bad, i had to tell her to get back to her seat and put her seatbelt back on as she was basically gyrating him the whole flight! i mean.....it’s all fun and games until someone breaks a leg like!! ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿป‍โ™€๏ธ. 4. after september 11th (i was working with aer lingus at the time) i was sent on a ‘rescue mission’ on an empty aircraft with a supply crew, pr team, engineers, catering etc to rescue our passengers and crew who were all diverted to gander in newfoundland. there’s a book written about it - the day the world came to town’ where 40 major airliners were all told to divert to gander on september 11th after they closed us airspace. i spent a couple of days in gander - i’ll never forget it. 5. i was once on a layover in auckland with #emirates. the morning before we were due to fly back to sydney, i did a bungy jump off the harbour bridge....there was still water coming out of my ears on the flight. #facts #5factsaboutme truth #me #life #flying #adventure #thoughts #ootd #wiw #mood

There seems to be a lot going on at the moment in dubai in terms of launches and events so it’s nice to get back into it all again and check out all the new products coming into the uae. this morning i had the pleasure of attending the launch of australian brand @mrbeanbodyme - a gorgeous body scrub made with coffee (who doesn’t love a good coffee scrub ๐Ÿ˜œโ˜•๏ธ), demerara sugar, himalayan salt and coconut oil (all organic and natural) plus different ‘flavours’ including peppermint (fav), coconut, vanilla, manuka honey, mandarin and not leaving the guys out - a ‘rough’ man scrub! (present ideas ladies ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป). such a fab morning as always with @tishtashtalks at @sophiesdubai which is #decorgoals and their ‘zucchini brownies’ are to die for! โค๏ธ anyone looking for me later....i’ve a hot date in my shower with some coffee ๐Ÿ˜œโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿšฟ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป. this is currently available on @glambeauteuae and will also be stocked in bloomingdale’s and harvey nichols soon ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป . . . #mrbeanbody #mrbeanbodyme #sophiesdubai #beanbody #butfirstcoffee #coffee #scrub #scrublife #beauty #beautyblogger #dubaiblogger #event #launch #fun #thatsdarling #cute #cafe #interior #products #australian #mydubai #pursuepretty #petitejoys #smile #photooftheday #gucci #goodmorning #tishtashtalks #tishtashloves

Weekend vibes โ˜€๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ›ด๐ŸŒฎ. this afternoon we headed down to kite beach with our scooters and had lunch at @taqadomexicankitchen who are now doing kids menus btw (made a nice change from burgers and chips ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸwhich more times than none the kids usually end up having at weekends ๐Ÿ™Š). side note: it was all fun and games though until they decided to dip their pencils into the chocolate sauce that came with the churros and smather themselves in it....which prompted a quick exit ๐Ÿ˜ซ๐ŸŒฎ #gameover #thejoys #parentingtheshitoutoflife . . . #taqadomexicankitchen #miniluchadorsitas #hola #mexican #lunch #tacos #burritos #kids #food #instafood #yum #mydubai #dubai #uae #instagood #instakids #thehappynow #thatsdarling #darlingmovement #petitejoys #pursuepretty #momlife #mexicanfood #weekend #friday #inspiremyinstagram #guacamole

What happens when @daintydressdiaries comes to dubai? (#daintydoesdubai - i’ve coined it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป) you bring her to the coolest and newest ‘place-to-be’ of course......la mer.....and you make her smoke shisha for the first time (maybe not the last ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿช). how bloody awesome is this place though....i need a full day there! โ›ฑโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฆ(more on my stories โ†–๏ธ) #venicebeachvibes . . #lamer #mydubai #uae #dubai #beach #beachfront #cool #awesome #lights #goals #palmtrees #love #thehappynow #friends #pretty #thatsdarling #darlingmovement #pursuepretty #petitejoys #blueskies #holidayvibes #sunset #shisha #photography #inspiremyinstagram #livethelittlethings #colourpop

Style note: if you want to avoid that ‘lady-of-the-night/hooker’ look when wearing white boots.....keep the heel height low (kitten heel or flats), keep the toe pointy and avoid wearing them with super short mini’s ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป #justsayin . . . #style #tip #tipoftheday #fashion #stylist #styleblogger #sotd #shoeoftheday #white #boots #sequinskirt #sequins #gucci #ootd #lotd #wiw #whatiworetoday #momlife #aboutalook #lookbook #lookoftheday #thehappynow #truth #thatsdarling #pursuepretty #petitejoys #simple #inspiremyinstagram #instafashion
