April

What an amazing month March turned out to be, we celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary for an entire week, starting of at Le Meridien Al Aqah and finishing at Al Maha Desert Resort and Spa, with a trip to Jumeirah Beach Hotel and Emirates Golf Club inbetween!!  The weather has finally broken and we are experiencing a rise in temperatures, it's no secret I prefer the hotter months over the cooler ones. It's Easter this month, so I hope the Easter Bunny is really kind to you all. Have a fabulous month wherever are you are.

I am a big fan of Pastiche, the makers of Lovelinks and was over the moon when I heard about their new range for men, Blu Steel.  Beautifully crafted jewellery for men, functional, practical, classy and affordable!  Juliette has the full range of Blu Steel and she can be contacted via the Pastiche facebook page.

"Fashioned with raw, industrial materials Blu steel delivers an urban aesthetic in a refined, stylish range for men. Drawing on influences ranging from structural architecture, mechanical devices and urban city textures Blu steel provides a bold and innovative range tailored to the contemporary man.

Using stainless steel, wires, cables and other hard wearing materials, the Blu steel range reflects sleek, structural elements. Interesting finishes of ion plating, brushing and oxidation enhance the fabricated steel. Natural leather, rubber and microfibre detailing complete each piece"

Go on, treat the man in your life with something from the Blu Steel collection this Valentines Day

Channel 4 in the United Kingdom have yet again excelled themselves with another fantastic documentary that is currently airigng.  For those of you who download this is a must.  Interestingly they have teamed up people with severe facial deformities, congenital and as the result of trauma, with self obsessed beauty/plastic surgery addicts. 

In the first episode we meet Leo, his face was severely burnt in an accident with an oil canister as a child, and Yasmin who is addicted to beauty products. Yasmin spends up to two hours every day attaching hair pieces, fake eyelashes and layers of make up and it is her wish to have plastic surgery.  Leo is totally against her having plastic surgery in any way or form.  Leo and Yasmin are like chalk and cheese. They spend a day in each others lives with amazing consequences.

I started off thinking how shallow the young Yasmin is, but there is always two sides to a story.  Very moving.

Too many sit in judgement at people who are different from us on the outside, they should remember we are all the same on the inside and that life can sometimes  be cruel.  Never judge, just accept and your life will be an easier place to live in.

I was hoping that I wouldn't have to write this little article.  A good friend of mine has lost her cat and I am hoping that by writing this and sharing it with the Twitter world that we might be able to find Millie.   Millie has gone missing from Le Coleccion on the Arabian Ranches.  She has been missing two days now.  Two children are pining for her.  Please keep your eyes open for Millie, if you see her get in touch with me on 050 5512502.

Thanks

Not sure how many of you have managed to get your hands on a copy of this fantastic new Magazine that launched for the ladies in October of last year.  I have got every single copy and absolutely love it. It's like the magazines from home with loads of information about what's going, what's new, what to do! you name it and Good Taste seem to cover it.  Split up into four sections; Good Life, Good Style, Good Looks and Good Health it really does have something for everyone.

Here's the good bit .... It's free and available at all Choithrams outlets from the beginning of every month.

Well done to the team at Good Taste, it filled a gap in the market very nicely.

Living in the Middle East means that we meet people on a daily basis who have a different accent to our own. Local UK dialects can be heard in all the shopping malls and coffee shops in Dubai along with accents from different Countries too, Ozzies, South Africans, Indians, Chinese, Russian, the list goes on and on.

We all have an accent that is unique to the region we hailed from.  Why should this be a problem with the children in our lives?  basically it shouldn't.   If we wanted our children educated in our local dialect then we really shouldn't be living here.  If you feel that you are worried because your child is being educated by an Asian, and are worried they are going to pick up an Indian dialect, then I suggest you ring Emirates (as I am sure that is who you will want to fly with) and arrange a single ticket back to your home country.

It never ceases to amaze me the amount of rubbish I hear from expats who are based in the UAE, I suppose it makes the world go round, but a word of advice, think before you press that *post* button.
