Dubai Airshow 2013

This week in the UAE has been all about the Dubai Airshow.

 It comes to the UAE every two years and lot's of big orders are always made. It is only for people in the industry and is by invitation only. Lucky for me my husband is in the industry and was sent quite a few invites! So off we went! 

My husband did have to work while we were there, having various meeting etc, but we still got to see the show and walk around all the exhibits and aircraft. It was an amazing experience, I loved every minute.

We saw some private jets which were very plush. The U.S Air Force and the U.A.E Air Force were there and it was a real eye opener walking around the different types of military aircraft and actually going inside them. 

Of course the Emirates Airbus 380 was there too and they did an amazing fly pass with the UAE aerobatic display team, Al-Fursan, who also gave an excellent display. 

We went on Monday and the pass is valid for the whole five days, so we went back on Wednesday too!

As it was an industry event, business attire was requested. Hopefully I looked up to scratch! 

On Monday I wore my white shirt, pink skirt with my nude heels and my chunky gold J Crew necklace. I did feel really good in my outfit, but by the end of the day my feet were so sore. 

When we went back on the Wednesday I still stayed smart in one of my favourite dresses, but I made sure I wore my flat sandals, so I could be comfy all day.

 We took so many pictures it's crazy! I have done my best to minimise it down for you all! 

Most of the photos were taken with my trusty iPhone and I think they've come out quite well. 

On the Wednesday we took my husband's Canon with us and he got some amazing shots of the Red Arrows and some military aircraft too!

 Again there are so many photos to choose from, so hopefully I've picked some good ones to share with you all!

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
