Desert Wandering - U.A.E

Did someone say.... ROAD TRIP?? After nearly 3 years living in the UAE it was finally time to explore further than Dubai. So off we went. Starting out in Dubai heading up to RAK, driving through Diba and ending up in Fujairah overlooking Snoopy Island where we were to set up camp for the eve. From miles of desert to giant rocky mountains within an hour, I had no idea why it had taken so long to explore this side of the UAE. The one thing these pictures do not tell is the sweat we were dealing with on that day, our own fault really for travelling in the middle of summer! Nevertheless when you have the chance to explore, GO, you never know when it will come up again!  

Wearing: Desert Wanderer Playsuit by Spell Designs, Heart shaped glasses - vintage,

Dream BIG - Buenos Aires

Dream big. Dream Always! I myself have always been a dreamer so this tee just about sums up what I like to do. I do love finding a meaningful printed tee. This is probably the most worn item in my wardrobe as it just works with everything. My Wildfox possessions do tend to be very popular in my day to day life, meaning this tee and my white twiggy sunnies.

On this occasion I was wandering the streets of La Boca in Argentina. This bright neighbourhood was full of photo ops, with splashes of colour everywhere you look. This area is a must visit every time I visit Buenos Aires, with the tango dancers who liven up the streets and picture perfect buildings La Boca is just one of those feel good places!

Waering, Dream tee - Wildfox, Pink skirt - Princess Polly, Hat H & M, Black boots and backpack.

From Lisbon to Sintra

Around this time last year I went on my first trip to Portugal. I was seriously wowed by some of the sights, the village of Sintra in particular. The first day was spent in the capital, Lisbon, where I got to ride one of the cute vintage looking trams up to the castle for a view of the Portuguese rooftops. The second day was more of an adventure, beginning with the colourful Castelo dos Mouros and ending up cliffside at the Cabo da Roca. This has to be up there with my favourite photo diaries of 2013.

Wearing striped top from Zara, white skirt and shoes from Topshop finessed with Blue shades also from Topshop.

Wearing vintage dress, customised by me, white shoes as mentioned above and of course, my Wildfox sunnies.
