Sharing my dress from Abu Dhabi.

Hello there, thanks for stopping by I really appreciate it as I know how busy you all are. X

Up to my eye balls in present buying & wrapping, along with a couple of lunches and coffee's with friends.  Are you all done yet? No me neither, but hey ho we've still got over a week to get everything in order. (she says through gritted teeth and panicked eyes!)
Hope you saw my Christmas Tag on Monday, that was fun to join in with.  If you missed it catch it again here.

Seem to be running around in circles over the past couple of days.  Never actually getting anywhere!
Oh well that's part and parcel to the build up for my Christmas and I'm sure many of yours too.

So this morning I was up and out early to take some photos, okay it wasn't that early if my hubby is reading, but early for me lol!

Things I love about the festive season .... The Christmas Tag!

Hi there.

Rather a different post for my today, you see I've been tagged in a Christmas themed Tag.
This is the first time I've ever been personally earmarked for a challenge like this, so I'm looking forward to tackling it.

My blogger friend Claire from I wasn't expecting that! tagged me a few days ago & jumping at the task I set to work ....

For someone who loves every aspect of Christmas this is easy peasy!!
So let's get started.

Things I love about the festive season.

Reliving Adu Dhabi.

Hi there - how are you?

How's the Christmas shopping going?  Is your house bedecked with decorations?  Yes mine is and I adore seeing the house festooned and looking all Christmassy.

If you've been watching me on Instagram you'll see I've just returned from a week in Abu Dhabi to watch the Grand Prix.
I had made a start on my gift buying before I went on holiday, but now home I'll be tackling the job full on, aiming to get all the presents within the next week - ha ha, who am I kidding?  I'll still be running around on Christmas Eve buying last minute gifts & wrapping them whilst stuffing the turkey and making pate! 😁

We flew with a wonderful airline that I knew nothing about.  Etihad Airways have got long haul flights sorted.  With a speedy on line check-in meaning you only have to drop your bag and go. 
The usual security checks completed we were now free to start enjoying ourselves.  Into the bar for a bite to eat and drink.  Followed by a quick wiz around a couple of shops for last minute goodies!
I had been a little nervous about the time of the flight, having only been on one long distance flight many years ago, but I need not have concerned myself the flight was a breeze!  Drinks served and dinner eaten I settled down to watch the in-flight films.  I was rather taken by the camera views - watching take off and landing, along with all the details of the flight!

Arriving at the Intercontinental Hotel, I couldn't get enough of the opulence and beauty.  Enormous Chandeliers, beautiful couches, grand piano and an aroma to die for!  Whisked away to our room on the 7th floor, I was wide awake and wanting to see more!

Back to reality.

Hello there,  I'm back and raring to go.
December already and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Full steam ahead for present buying, card writing, food shopping and partying!  How's your preparations going?

What a fantastic time I've had in Abu Dhabi, I'll be featuring this in a blog post within the next few weeks.

Sharing today one of the dresses that accompanied me on my holiday.
This Asos Warehouse dress has a Swirl print, & is a midi length AND it's now in the sale for under £35. Not my first choice as it wasn't my favourite, it was my daughter's pick which, once on, actually turned out to be my personal best, getting a big thumbs up for the unusual style and design, making it a real statement dress.
A partially lined dress with a one side off the shoulder detail, with a drawstring waist and striking tie sleeves this dress is just that little bit out of the ordinary!

I've fallen for not only the style, but the colours as well. Navy blue and yellow are great colour matches.  I've worn plenty of outfits with these hues, you can see Mustard and jeans & Mustard dress with blue scarf are two options.
My Asos dress ended up being the perfect holiday dress and went down a treat on my visit to Abu Dhabi last week.
