The most opulent hotel I’ve ever visited: @emiratespalace Abu Dhabi. Very bling bling. Prefer my @stregissaadiyatisland but have to admit the views of the Abu Dhabi skyline from Emirates Palace is just astonishing. More on Stories .

My @radleylondon bag has done well here as have my vintage sunnies & dress from Oz. .

On the beach @stregissaadiyatisland, Abu Dhabi......a perfect getaway with a clean, long, quiet beach and if you’re lucky you might see dolphins playing in the Arabian Sea ▶️ how lucky was I?

Meanwhile, this is the kaftan that let me down at the Grand Mosque - too much ankle and wrist action! It cost me £8 In India, quell bargain?! .

Getting bored by photos of my visit to the Sheik Zayed Mosque yet? I just can’t stop posting photos of this architectural wonder and it makes a change from my door shots! .

Another photo of my ‘abaya’ that meeds to be worn if you haven’t covered your head and ankles and everything in between! The Sheik Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi was worth the cover up and I quite liked the fact that all us women were dressed identically, in blue or brown! #nojudgement .

I haven’t forgotten that it’s the 100 year anniversary of the end of WW1. I love the way poppies just make their way up through every crack & crevice don’t you? #lestweforget🌺 Thank you to each and every soul who gave up their lives so we could be forever free. .

I haven’t had a chance to do any Insta worthy shots in Abu Dhabi yet (apart from Stories) still winding down from the journey, so here’s an amazing shot taken by the legend that is Ian Rankin @rankinarchive @festofmarketing a few weeks ago. How honoured am I😎

If you look closely you can see that I’m running across a SLOW sign - that’s how I feel today getting ready for my little break in Abu Dhabi and a lovely slow week! .
✈️ .
See you on the other side with some very different backgrounds. Love this shot of a row of Georgian houses, in Tunbridge Wells, taken by my friend @the_lois_edit , you can only imagine how long we had to wait for the traffic to stop! .

Does your pet get upset when you get that suitcase out? I’m off to Abu Dhabi soon and the only thing that will cheer little Jack up is that he’s gong to stay with his girlfriend for a week! Don’t I look happy, what a dreadful mum I am?
✈️
Very pleased with my medium size suitcase from @goplacesluggage . The new Novation range by Eminent is perfect for a short long haul as it’s light, roomy AND it’s made from recyclable plastic rather than ending up in landfill. That makes me very happy. .
✈️
If you want to know what I’ve packed for covering up in Abu Dhabi, head over to my You Tube channel, link in bio⬆️

Are you getting bored with my beach shoot yet? Just loving how using the timer on my iPhoneX has captured me and Jack so well!

That’s my vintage faux leather jacket from Amsterdam by the way, the dog’s pretty vintage as well! 🐾

I’m wearing autumn! Just loving this Geometric Knit cardigan from @palavafolk , especially as they’re an ethical brand who’ve made this cardi out of organic cotton. (Thank you Jules for the fashion shoot on our dog walk!) . 🍁🍁🍁
.
Organic production uses way less water than regular cotton growing as well as being free from chemicals. I applaud & want to support these small British brands who are protecting the environment as well as their workers and us customers. .

I’ve just had the best day with @the_lois_edit playing in Tonbridge Wells. See Stories to see how cross I got waiting for the Saturday traffic to stop ruining our shoot! #WHPScale
.

BTW no vintage or Preloved this time but my leather jacket from @zara is at least 15 years old! And my fave faux leather biker pants I got last winter from @sweatybetty .
