DH Lounge, Riyadh

I love food.  It’s no secret, I am a real foodie. I’d much rather go out for a good meal then get sloshed in a local pub. Which was one of the reasons both Mark and I were excited about moving to Riyadh, was the abundance of restaurants. And good restaurants at that.

When I was last in Riyadh, Mark took me to the DH Lounge, which one of his friends/work colleagues took him to a few weeks previous. Mark really enjoyed it and said to me we have to go when you’re back in Riyadh. So we did and oh my days I’m still buzzing from the tasty flavorsome food we indulged in while we were there.

Prawn Linguine ~ simple easy pasta with a subtle tomato taste

We enjoyed the food at the DH Lounge so much and I’m so thankful for Marks new work colleague for introducing us to this restaurant. The service at the DH Lounge was excellent, you couldn’t fault it. The waiters were so friendly, attentive and polite. The decor was amazing, the restaurant totally had the high end London vibe to it. And of course the food was amazing.

I’m still buzzing from the evening we had!

Thank you DH Lounge - we will be back

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
