Dubai – My Favourite Travel Destination

Dubai is one of my favourite holiday destinations. We have visited Dubai 3 times now, and I am looking forward to planning our 4th trip. I think Dubai should be on every travel list. It is truly an amazing place to holiday. It is great for families with children as well as couples. We have visited the country as a couple and as family of 4, and we had lovely experiences on every trip.

Here are some of the reasons why Dubai is my favourite travel destination-


Great for shopping

The fashion lovers would love Dubai because it is a great place to shop. There is a yearly stopping festival that would suit the shopping lovers. This year it is happening from 26th December to 28th December. It is a fantastic shopping festival with loads of activities. We were lucky enough to experience the shopping festival 2 years ago. It was a great experience; one I would never forget. The amazing fireworks were beautiful to watch. And the jaw dropping bargains were great for my travel money.

A lot to see

There is so much to see in Dubai. From Jumeirah Beach, to the famous dessert, to Wild Wadi Water Parks, and the Gold Souk. There is somewhere to explore for everyone. You can’t be bored in Dubai regardless of how many times you have visited. There is always something new to see.


You get value for money

We get good value for money when we visit the Middle East. Some of the main tourist attraction can be a little pricey. But when it comes to things like taxis, food and drinks, and hotels, Dubai is reasonably cheap, unlike many other popular travel destinations.

Amazing weather

The Dubai weather is so beautiful. The best time to visit Dubai is between December and March. The weather is nice and warm then, unlike other months in the year where it could be unbearably hot. We visited Dubai last July and it was fun but dead hot. Almost too hot to do anything. I won’t be doing that again.

How to Keep the Kids Safe in the Sun

Kids are the most vulnerable to the effects of the sun. They are prone to the sun and heat related illnesses. Sunny days are here and as parents it’s crucial that we protect our kids from the sun.

Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun can lead to illnesses like skin cancer and melanoma or even a horrible sun burn.  The risks of prolonged sun exposure to your kids can be drastically reduced when you take proper safety measures. Here are 4 you can get started with.


  1. Apply sunscreen frequently

On sunny days, it is very important that you carry a bottle of sunscreen with you at all times. Sunscreens provide protection from the harmful effects of the sun. It is advisable to go for a sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher with broad-spectrum protection.

Don’t just stop at applying sunscreen before your child goes outside. Make sure you apply sunscreen on your child’s body often at least every 2-3 hours. That way your child has all round protection.

Be generous with the sunscreen on the parts of your child’s body that is most exposed to the sun, like the back of the neck, arms, feet and even their lips as they can also be prone to sunburn.


  1. Limit their time in the sun

Damage from the sun is at its peak between 10am and 4 pm as that is the hottest time of the day. As much as possible, try to limit your kids’ outdoor time within the hours of 10am and 4 pm. Get creative with activities that your child can do indoors during those hours when the sun is at its hottest. If your child goes out during those times, make sure your child takes frequent breaks from the sun or plays in the shade. And, of course, don’t forget the sunscreen.


  1. Get them covered up

Another way you can keep your child safe from the sun aside from applying sunscreen is making sure they are covered up. Wide brimmed hats can help shield their face from the rays of the sun and sunglasses keep the sun from harming their eyes.

The kind of clothing you give them to wear is also important to ensure your child’s safety from the sun. Opt for fabrics that are thin, breathable and able to cover the areas of their body that get the most exposure to the sun.

  1. Be a good example

What better way to teach your kids the importance of staying safe in the sun than by setting a good example for them. Kids learn faster when they see someone showing the way. If you are consistent with applying sunscreen on your body, hanging out in the shade whenever you’re outside or wearing a hat and a pair of sunglasses, your kids will definitely follow your lead. Don’t skip the safety measures no matter what. Always remember that your little ones are watching and learning from you.

Magic Opaque Tights That Don’t Rip

I don’t know about you, but I am forever buying new tights and leggings. It is like an endless shopping game for me. My opaque tights usually rip after a few wears. While my leggings rip after some weeks of wearing them regularly, which is a pain. Sometimes I get to only wear my tights once before it rips. Can you imagine how annoying that is? To spend a few pounds on a piece you only get to wear once.

In my pursuit of some quality opaque tights, I came across this Magic 50 Opaque Tights by Solidea. I liked the description of the tights on their website. It sounded like what I needed, so I knew I had to give it a try. Black tights are always a necessity for me even in the spring/summer months. I like to have a few around just incase I need to wear them on a chilly day. You can never really know how the day is going go weather wise with our precious British Weather.

I really like this  Magic 50 Opaque Tights by Solidea. It is so amazing. It is definitely not your usual sort of tights. I realised that as soon as I unboxed it. It has a very firm texture that allows it hug the legs and keeping it looking toned. The patented wave fabric in the panty helps get rid excess fluids and eliminates cellulite. It also ensures all day freshness.

The opaque tights comes in 5 sizes – small, medium, medium large, large and extra-large. I am wearing a medium. It also comes in 3 colours, Fumo, Nero and Moka. Mine is in Nero.

I don’t see this opaque tights ripping. It looks like a piece that would be around for a long time and I am sure it will be. Solidea do make great products. I still have the Karen 70 Lace Knee-High Socks by Solidea I got years ago, and it is still as good as it was on the first day. So if you are in search of opaque tights that won’t rip, you need to check out the Solidea website. There are loads of options available, so I am certain there is a piece for everyone.
