A Day Out in Melbourne

Yarra river melbourne

Last weekend my husband and I decided to be tourists in our own town. We had thought about going away (it was a long weekend here) but couldn’t decide where to go and then I thought, why not do all those touristy things in here which I’ve never got round to doing! So we booked […]

Are You a Personal Stylist or Image Consultant? Then You Don’t Want to Miss This!


Are you working as a personal stylist or image consultant? Or is this something you are interested in pursuing as a career?

No Ordinary Holiday

Vida Downtown

I can’t believe how fortunate I am that I got to go on this incredible trip to Dubai with the Nuffnang Bloggerati gang (who were fabulous to get to know and have now become friends) sponsored by Dubai Tourism and I’ve shared some of my highlights already on the fabulous palatial hotel I stayed at, […]

No Ordinary Arabian Experience

So much tasty traditional food

One of the cultural highlights of my time in Dubai so far has been the Bedouin experience of a Desert Safari by Platinum Heritage.

No Ordinary Mall

Even the rays are wearing leopard print!

Today I spent the better part of the day at The Dubai Mall.  Now I’m a pretty experienced shopper, and have been to malls and shopping centres all over the world.  I’ve seen some big ones, and some with one attraction. But I have to say I’ve never seen a mall quite like The Dubai […]
