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!

Read more on my  Disclaimer/Contact  page ~ Since writing the post ' Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginners'   I keep thinking about the part about choosing a name for your blog. If you've been here a while you'd know that this blog was originally called Suncream and Sparkles ~ which I have written about why I changed my blog name  here . Even though I do love my new blog name and I don't regret changing it I do wish I had taken more time and consideration in the very beginning when first starting my blog, or at least before buying the domain. You see blogging, even now for me who's been doing it for a fair few years, it really is a constant learning curve where you're always discovering new ways and new ideas to tweak and improve your blog.

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

Looking for compounds in Riyadh

When Mark was first offered the job in Saudi, actually even before that when we were waiting in anticipation for the job to be offered we knew our first choice of accommodation in Riyadh would be on a western compound. We wanted our new place to be a home from home. Even though we have no problem whatsoever with following dress codes or anything and it actually doesn’t bother us in the slightest covering up. We sometimes, because of the world we’re from, being a westerner we wanted that little bit of ‘normality’ from our home life that we’re used too. We like to go on walks in the evening so it’s nice to be able to just pop on your shorts and vest and go for a walk without thinking and also being able to pop to the mini market for a pint of milk and a loaf of bread. Probably one of the biggest reasons for us to live on a compound is that we like to swim, sunbathe and be at the pool together. Which for us is a big part of our life. Another thing we like about compound living is the esca
