Had so much fun with this guy and tita @kat_penalosa ❤️ at #motiongatedubai last weekend 👍 The best part was watching Adam's reaction when he saw toothless (how to train a dragon)! 😍😂 Thanks for this trip @itsjustramos 😁

Indonesian vegan tasting menu. By the time a man with a broad smile approached me, I had spent half an hour going over a thick menu to find vegan dishes. “Would you like to try our vegetarian tasting menu?”... He asked. “Of course... but most of your vegetarian tasting menu dishes have eggs in them”. “I can make all of them without eggs for you.” Me 😳. “How about I make it for one person.” I could not have possibly asked for all three myself - tasting menu, all vegan and for one person.
Indonesian food is definitely a great contender for a vegan lifestyle - almost entirely without diary with lots of #vegan options. Delicious & nutritious✅
#tbt to about 2 months after Malik was born. Seems appropriate since he’s turning 4 this weekend! I remember coming home after having him and jumping on the scale only to find myself down a whole 3 pounds! 3 pounds!!!!!! He weighed 6!! I didn’t even lose the baby weight. People say you lose 10 pounds on the first 2 days. That’s a bunch of crap!! I had the belly of an 8 month pregnant person when I left the hospital (only mushier since the baby was gone) and in this picture, which was taken 2 months later, I had the belly of a 5 month pregnant woman. If you look hard enough you can see it! 🤦🏻♀️ I expected to come home wearing the same jeans I was wearing before I got pregnant. Those were a size 8, I’m now a size 4 or 6!! My point in all this, is you can have your body back after babies. I did this again less than 2 years later! And I was 36 and 37 respectively. Hard work, dedication, consistency and being realistic is what got me where I am today. I’m not the most fit by a long shot, but I’m pretty damn proud of where I am at 40! A heck of a lot better than 20! .
You are the light! Always have been and always will be. Recognize your own brillance and embrace all that you are. Allow yourself to shine and step into your magnificence and power. #happydiwali#festivaloflights
Our seasonal blackberry, blueberries, raspberries, red currants, strawberries & cherries from Mexico, South Africa, USA & Holland never looked prettier. Thanks to @beautyjulianna_ for shopping with us and inspiring us to whip up healthy pancakes for the weekend ahead!

Those of you that know me personally will know that I am not the biggest fan of exercise. In fact I would much rather sit in front of the tv and eat a packet of chocolate hobnobs. This is mainly because pre-Poppy I never really had to worry about my weight. I’ve always been quite lucky; I have a high metabolism and I’m tall. Don’t get me wrong, I still had body confidence issues before Poppy but they now pale in significance.
Post partum, it’s a whole new story. I have lumps and bumps everywhere and my whole body just feels a bit ‘saggy’ if that makes sense! Even though I’m nearly back to my pre- pregnancy weight, my shape and tone is completely and utterly different.🤦♀️
For the first time in my life, I really have to work at keeping the weight off as well as watching what I eat. It’s really hard work!! I’ve been working with the amazing @georgiegymgirl since January and through her training sessions she’s really helped me find the motivation to exercise. She will tell you that when I arrive at training all I do is moan, moan, moan about what a tough day I’ve had or my sleep situation (or lack thereof!!) but by the end of the session I feel really uplifted. Not only does exercise play a part in changing my body shape but it also plays a huge part in my mental health. I feel like I sweat out my stresses and I feel much more alert and happy. It does wonders for my anxiety! Georgie probably should get paid double the money as I’m sure I use it as a counseling session. 😂
It’s because of all of this that I’ve decided to take part in the Dubai Fitness Challenge. It’s an initiative that’s been introduced by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The 30x30 challenge means that I’m committing myself to 30 minutes of daily activity for 30 days between 20th October until the 18th November 2017.. You can register on their website and there is a huge opening carnival this weekend at Safa Park to kick it all off.
I feel like it’s such a great initiative to get involved in and hopefully I’ll feel really positive by the end of it. Maybe I’ll even get that 6 pack I’ve been after! 😜
Who else wants to join me? I need moral support!
Someone's all excited to be Captain America this Halloween! Our costume is from @yalla.costumes, who supply original licensed costumes from Marvel, DC Comics, Star Wars, and many more original designs. The fabric is comfortable and high quality, with velcro ties. You can find cheaper costumes, but we tried that last year, and it barely lasted two wears. This one is going to be great for pretend play, costume parties, and just about any imaginative activity 🎭
Find their costumes at @hamleysuae, @thetoystore.me, @toysrusme, @virginmegastoreme, @borders_me, @mypartycentre and other costume retailers.
See my Insta Stories for a peek at some of their other designs.
