Review: BabySplash Dubai

Bit of a rocky start this morning getting to Emirates Hills (Meadows Village Fitness First). LO thought it would be funny to take her tube of yogurt and smear it ALL over herself while I was driving the car…GRRRR I hate when she does that! We got there just in the nick of time, quickly […] Read more…

What’s for lunch today?

Homemade french fries (in the shape of hearts no less) and some grilled salmon! *To grill the salmon, I used a tiny bit of olive oil and seasonings. Cut up and speared them with little toothpicks for fun toddler eating! *For the hearts I sliced up one medium sized potato and then individually punched each piece out with […] Read more…

FYI (For Your Information)

A wonderful friend of mine messaged today asking me what was all this “LO” was about, and how come I was not calling my daughter by her real name! LO stands for “Little One”. And there you have it! =) Read more…

Look what I found!

How unbelievably sweet are these? The set comes with 4 teacups/saucers all for the bargain price of 20 AED! My little girl and I will have so much fun eating our cupcakes out of these! The silicone cups are safe for baking, I would just use a cupcake liner as precaution (I am always a bit weary […] Read more…

Product Review: “Snails” Nail Polish

When I told my daughter I had a present for her, and she saw the nail polish she shouted “MANI!”. Yes she knows what a manicure is; she loves when I do her nails! We have tried other non-toxic nail polish brands, but I wanted something new! Besides, a girl can never have too many […] Read more…

It’s been a busy morning!

Stopped by Posh Paws Animal Sanctuary to pick up some beautiful farm fresh eggs! Nothing like organic eggs! Then we did our fruit run at Union-Coop, followed by Spinneys for meat, and bread! I am beat now. Worst of all I missed out on my afternoon nap with LO. We are now off to the doctors […] Read more…

Product Review: The Dream Bag

First thing LO did when she saw her new “sleep sack” (as we call it in our home), was run up to smell the embroidered flowers=) She loved how pink and pretty it was. You should see the other Dream Bag designs online! ADORABLE! So hard to pick just one design! Upon mommy’s further inspection, […] Read more…

Review: Pink Pepper Photography

This evening after LO’s nap we packed up and headed over to Dubai Mall for her mini-shoot with “Pink Pepper Photography”. She refused to remove her feathery princess shoes and sparkly Hello Kitty ballet tutu outfit! I had a few funny looks at the mall, but what the heck, they are only little once! If […] Read more…

Dear Diary

Miss Ballerina is all ready for her photoshoot! This is what she chose to wear! I was thinking something more along the lines of a Christmas outfit…Maybe I will be lucky enough to change her mind (or she will forget) by the time we get to Dubai Mall! Read more…

Dear Diary

Ahhhh nothing like freshly steamed floors! A little cure for my OCD! I love my “Kärcher” (from Ace Hardware). Looking forward to an evening at “Pink Pepper Photography” once LO wakes up! So stay tuned for a new review this evening! Now if only I could decide what outfit she should wear… Hope you are […] Read more…

Review: The Little Gym Dubai

I am still smiling about our late morning class at “The Little Gym”! SO much fun! I would have to rank it as one of the best mom and tots classes I have done in Dubai to date! The staff was outstanding! Scott was the teacher for today’s class, and Cindy his assistant. As soon […] Read more…

Dear Diary

Today is the day that all the toys my daughter wants to play with have run out of batteries! I have frantically been opening old toys to see if I could swap the batteries, and of course toy A) needs the tiny ones and toy B) needs the big monster batteries! Arghhh! To top it […] Read more…

CLIPS galore!

This hidden gem can be found in “Etihad Mall”, just off of Airport Road near to Mirdif. Opposite of Union Co Op you will find a little kiosk called “Bangkokiat”! “Bangkokiat” has lot’s and lot’s of fun clips and bits to pick from (and very reasonably priced). Here are some of my finds: -Clips: New […] Read more…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! =)

My husband just returned this morning from Vienna, Austria (his home town). And with that comes lot’s of goodies for LO and I! Don’t you just love these handmade ornaments? They were made by my husbands “Liselotte” (his Oma’s sister). In the old days, they used to hand-make all of the decorations for the trees and as […] Read more…

Dear Diary

Very excited for my doctors appointment this morning at The City Hospital! I was supposed to go last week for my 20 week scan, but my doctor was on conference and had to cancel. We were going to find out the gender but with the appointment being moved to today, and my husband being away, we […] Read more…

Turkey Sandwich

A few days ago I purchased a package of turkey breasts (I hate calling them breasts) for roughly 27 AED at Spinneys. They were going to expire tomorrow, so I gathered up some energy and decided to fry them up! From two “breasts” I was able to cut them in to 10 thinner slices (thanks […] Read more…
