A relaxing Saturday by the pool

As the temperature continues to soar, it is increasingly hard to find things to do while avoiding the 45 degree heat! There are only so many malls you can visit and days you can spend hiding in your home with the air con turned up before cabin fever sets in!

So, we decided to get out and about and treat ourselves to a spot of lunch and pool access in The H Hotel on Saturday afternoon. There we spent the day indulging in barbequed steak and lobster and alternating between the pool and shade to keep cool.

Here are a few pics from the day.

We had such a relaxing day, eating, swimming and catching up on celeb gossip! We promised ourselves we would do it again soon.

About Me


Freya and Milly is a lifestyle blog, where I share insights into my life, the things I love, the places I go and the people that inspire me.

Originally from Ireland, I have been living and working in Dubai for the past two years with my husband Andrew. We are gearing up for a move to Abu Dhabi in August which I’m hoping will give me a bit more free time to indulge my artistic side and blog about it along the way. I have a love for cooking, baking, fashion and anything vintage. My guilty pleasure is vintage china and I’m always on the hunt for one of a kind interesting pieces for my home. I love to travel and try to collect one off pieces from everywhere I visit.

And so with a lot of courage and a little trepidation, I have set up this blog! I hope you enjoy it, please like or comment with questions or feedback .

Thanks for reading!
