Morning Adventures in Dubai – Hidden Gems of Dubai

Mornings are my favourite time of day, I like being up before the rest of the city, and enjoying the peace. I also think you can achieve so much more when you start the day early, this whole adventure was over by 12, so I still had plenty of time to finish all my homework 🙂 This small guide will take you on our Dubai Morning Adventure, and hopefully inspire you to wake up early and explore your own city!

Recovering From a Running Injury – And Making My Dream Team!

I am currently super excited! If you read my Instagram post yesterday (@Little.Miss.Expat) you will already know what I’m talking about. I’ve been selected to run in the 2018 Cross Country MESAC competition!!! For those of you who don’t know, MESAC is the Middle East and South Asia Conference, which is basically the big sporting competition we get to compete in. Ever since I joined the Cross Country team, my dream has always been to qualify to be able to run in this competition, but I honestly didn’t think I would make the cut till maybe my Senior year of high school? But here I am, a Sophomore, celebrating going to MESAC! In this blog post, I’m going to tell you about my injury, how I recovered from it, and how I made the MESAC team, stay tuned!

The Vienna Eating Guide

So, if you’re one of my regular readers you’ll know that over winter break I visited Vienna, which means that I ate lots of yummy Christmassy treats and snacks. One of the things I really wanted to do on this trip was to visit Christmas markets, instead of going to the big tourist attractions. And because I LOVE FOOD, I got to try lots of different fresh and delicious street food snacks at the markets.

Eating For a Purpose – Health Food Haul

So, if you’re one of my regular readers you will know that one of my new year’s resolutions is to learn more about the food I eat, and what it does for my body.  This year I want to eat for a purpose. I already have a very healthy lifestyle, and I’m really interested in nutrition, so I wanted to combine these two things and do something that I’ve wanted to do for a while. This year I want to learn about all the vitamins I need to eat, what food contains what nutrients, and what types of carbs will let me run better. In other words, I want to know what every piece of food I eat does for my body.

Conquering Homesickness

For me, winter break usually means going back to England and spending time with my family and friends. This year my time in England went by so fast, and before I knew it, it was time to pack up and head back to Dubai. Usually, I find myself a little teary on days we head back to Dubai because as much as I love my life here, it’s always hard to leave England. I think that anyone who lives away from home, or who has family that lives far away can probably relate to this. Leaving your family behind can sometimes feel like you’re leaving a little part of yourself behind. I sometimes feel like I’m torn between the two places because Dubai is my ‘home’ now, but England seems to natural and safe to me.

A Fresh Start – My tips for starting 2018 in the best way you possibly can

2018 is almost here, and I for one honestly can’t believe how fast 2017 has gone! For me, the beginning of a new year doesn’t usually mean a whole lot to me, because the start of my ‘new year’ is the start of the school year. But this year It’s going to be different! Usually, my school starts a couple of days after new years, so when that clock chimes 12, my heart starts racing with the stress of knowing that I have school in 2 days and that it’s a whole new year filled with tonnes of expectations and goals to achieve. But this year, I want to make the most of the fresh start that comes with the beginning of the new year.
