Hey guys!

So as some of you dear readers may know, I have, very excitedly; joined Dubai Roller Derby. And It. Is. AWESOME!

You don’t have to have been a ‘skater’ previously to join us, you don’t have to have done any Derby before either. All you need to do is come see one practice, and meet some of the girls. We are such a super friendly bunch and we’d LOVE for you to join us.

We practice weekly and also do an endurance free-skate at Dubai Autodrome weekly. We love to socialise and meet new people, so do drop us a line at our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/DubaiRollerDerby?fref=ts , or on the website to find our more  http://www.dubairollerderby.com/ :).

We like to boot camp with the Abu Dhabi Roller Derby league also!

For now though, here are some recent pics from practices, boot camps and scrimmages.

Some very cool news! Yesterday we had a Roller Derby Boot Camp in Abu Dhabi with the Abu Dhabi Roller Derby league https://www.facebook.com/pages/Abu-Dhabi-Roller-Derby/153725484785780

The first thing I mention when someone asks me what Roller Derby is, I always say; have you seen ‘Whip It’? The film with Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore. This is a simple intro convo ice breaker.

It doesn’t matter what size you are, what occupation you have, but you do need to be over 21. And you get to meet lots of new friends, be inspired by the techniques of others’, train and evolve, develop, be fit and healthy, have fun, and have an awesome cool Derby name and number!

 

So take a pew, watch this YouTube Video and send us a mail! :D

For my fella’s 30th Birthday this year, we took ourselves on a three-week road trip across America.

…IT. WAS. GLORIOUS.

 

The above picture demonstrates the areas we drove through and from visiting The Grand Canyon, to The Gentle Barn, to Universal Studios, to Sequoia National Park (with awesome friends), to San Francisco (with awesome friends again!), and much more! We had the most amazing time.

 

As per my usual holiday wardrobe rundown, here’s a peek;

Update: Back to Dubai and USA Road trip

7 Jun

Hi guys and gals,

Following a 3-week road trip across the US, I haven’t even had time to do my much-awaited posts on my wardrobe, clothes/haul snapshot, and for the sistersite: House of Vegan – vegan eateries and yumness that I discovered on my journey, before another gust of news appeared…

 

I am now UAE-based once more!

You heard it here first!

 

After having been offered a job as Director at a successful Advertising Agency in Dubai, it’s back to Dubai with me. Yes!

Exciting times ahead. So stay tuned! I look forward to checking out some of the artisan markets in the UAE and participating with my Tribe of Mannequins fare.

G.C.C. stock; we now are!

Midi rings

7 Mar

Image

Midi rings, first Knuckle Rings, memory rings or tea rings…Wearing rings higher up on your fingers was actually popular during the Renaissance.

Five hundred years after they signified a wearer’s wealth, mini rings, worn on the foremost joint of the digit—are back on the fingers of trendsetters.

Image

“Wearing one at that time signified a degree of wealth, an indication that “You were of a family that didn’t work in the field or ride horses—you had someone to do all of that for you,” Michael Coan, the chair of FIT’s jewelry design department, explained to The Daily Beast. Just look at Bernhard Strigel’s Portrait of a Woman (above), as proof. The painting, created between 1500 and 1525, features a wealthy woman in a bejeweled collar, also wearing a first knuckle ring”
