ABOUT ME

I am a creative mum to two busy little girls, Grace & Olivia, and wife to a very supportive husband, John. I love anything vanilla, coffee and everything neutral. In a past life (pre kids) I was the international make-up artist for a French brand and had been in the industry for 13 years. My husband and I are both Scottish, we got married when I was 26 and delivered my rainbow baby, Grace at 27 and our little ray of sunshine, Olivia, at 29. We have lived in Dubai for 8 years and really love our expat life here and our amazing expat Dubai family. I own a little wire name company and love working for myself. My goal in life is to teach my girls that kindness costs nothing, that they are unconditionally loved and truly enjoyed, and to find true happiness in the simple things in life.

WHERE IS HOME?

Scotland. I miss the rain!

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER? 

A wedding dress designer. I had sketch books full of designs but thought I couldn’t make it as a designer because I couldn’t draw the faces in the sketches. Oh how the mind boggles.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I am a full time mum and also run my own business, More Than Words – The Little Wire Name Company.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE ACTIVITY TO DO WITH YOUR CHILDREN?

I love to take them to the beach and can’t wait for the cooler weather to get back out there.

HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR WEEKENDS?

Not at soft plays anymore, thankfully 😂  Lazy mornings filled with coffee, pancakes and playing in the garden. Afternoons visiting friends, in the park or at the swimming pool. 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?

Father Of The Bride

IF YOU COULD EAT ONE MEAL FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

A really tasty vintage cheddar cheese, a delicious crusty sourdough and a glass of grape.

WHO’S YOUR CELEBRITY CRUSH?

Bradley Cooper

WHICH DESTINATION IS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST TO VISIT?

Italy. I want to eat my way around the country!

WHAT’S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?

Pinning DIY projects on Pinterest that I will most probably never do.

IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPER POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Never needing to sleep. I mean, I would still sleep 😂 but imagine never feeling tired. As much as I do love sleep, just think of how much more productive we’d be if we had all those spare hours? 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT LIVING IN DUBAI?

That every weekend can feel like a holiday if you want to make it like one.
