souk in dubai

SOUK MADINAT JUMERIAH

Currently sat on my sofa after a very long week, wishing I was back in Dubai. How crazy is this weather change? After such a beautiful bank holiday weekend we are now left with miserable, black clouds. I have just got back from an amazing night in Brighton visiting my best friend Katie. We stayed at her sisters and explored everything to do with the gay capital. Today (Saturday 27th April) I have work before going out tonight to celebrate my brother and sisters birthday with all our friends. Tomorrow we are going for dinner at ASK Italian to celebrate with the family before we all head back to University. Honestly, I cannot wait to go back. Not going to lie I have not spent this Easter break chilling like I should of, I am absolutely knackers from working and socialising, now left with lots of University work to do. This week is all about getting my sh*t together before I weekend in an Eco Pod with Solly.

Naples for the Night

One evening in Dubai we spent at a market. We went to shop but instead walked around for a bit and then sat down for a cocktail. These buildings are so beautiful, Dubai is so photogenic.

SAFARI DESERT TRIP / DINNER & ENTERTAINMENT

One of our evenings in Dubai we spent in the desert. We got picked up by a man who works for the Desert Safari company and he took us around the desert. We went dune bashing and for a buffet dinner, where we had fire and belly dancing for entertainment. This was definitely one of my favourite evenings! It was so much fun sussing out such a different culture.

Dress – Motel Rocks (I also had the worst hairstyle this evening I am extremely sorry about that, haha!)

Happy good Friday everyone! How excited are you all for a warm 4 day weekend? I have today off but am working most of Saturday and Sunday – which is annoying but ok because I need to build up the bank account ready for the Summer! This weather is stopping me from revising and getting me too excited to finish. I just want to be on holiday again!

a sour dough breakfast

A sour dough breakfast

At the moment I am loving sour dough bread. Cutting down on gluten is doing wonders for my body, especially while I am trying to work out 5 days a week. I am going to Malaga in less that 2 weeks with all my friends and the thought of getting into a bikini surrounded by my tiny friends terrifies me so the only way to make myself feel more confident is to act it.

“Confidence isn’t ‘will they like me,’ confidence is ‘I will be fine if they don’t.’

If I was going to recommend any diet it is a gluten free one and we are lucky enough to live in a day and age where there is a replacement for anything. Chickpea pasta, gluten free bread… so much more!! I am so excited to go back to University and cook my own meals. I have already made a huge pinterest folder full of healthy, gluten free, vegan, vegetarian meals. I am eager to experiment.

This is a really nice and easy breakfast, it is full of good fats, protein and very little gluten. It is also extremely tasty. I LOVE SALMON, I could snack on salmon all day but I need to make the most of it while I am home because I won’t be able to afford it back in Bournemouth.

The ingredients for this breakfast just include; sour dough bread, avocado, pouched eggs and salmon.Β So tasty!!
