* 4 Years as a T1 Diabetic and Ready to Party! *


This is yours truly right now! I wanted to pop in and say hi real quick! Just finished doing myย hair and make-up before heading out for a Christmas party. Still need to get dressed though! ๐Ÿ™‚

Also my official T1 Diabetes Anniversary!

The weekend has started here, so I really should run but, speak again soon! โค

* Post Card From Fujairah *


= Good Afternoon =

Sending a ย postcardย from Fujairah, UAE. Okay it isย from last weekend, but whatever… ๐Ÿ˜€

I haven’t mentioned it here but, my cousin moved to the UAE back in August, to be part of my hubby’s business. Fun to have family around again ๐Ÿ™‚ Last weekend we took him on a tour to several of the other Emirates, on a bit of a sightseeing. We had lunchย at RJJ’s Restaurant and Bar, located in Fujairah’s International Marine Club building. We had good food on their outside terrace overlooking the Indian Ocean / Arabian Sea. It was such a lovely day for touring around. I think my cousin enjoyed himself. We ended the day with some drinks at our place ๐Ÿ™‚

I got back from the mall a little while ago. I had to get a couple of gifts for a Christmas party we are attending this weekend. Secret Santa business ๐Ÿ˜‰ I also may have ended up shopping something for myself too… Oh well, it happens. When I am buying gifts, wether in a regular store or an online one, I always seem to addย something extra into the mix for myself... I am bad!!ย ๐Ÿ˜€ Haha!!

Anywho, have a superb day and thanks for visiting ๐Ÿ™‚


* Almost 4 Years as a Type 1 Diabetic *


Hi there ๐Ÿ˜€

It has been a while! First of all, it is so much fun to see that I still have traffic on my blog! At least according to my stats ๐Ÿ˜€ As I mentioned a while back I am very active on Instagram these days. You can find me here : SweetCandyDreamer

So, to the headline ; As I have documented my T1 Diabetes Anniversaries on my blog these past 4ย years, I kinda felt the needย to continue it ๐Ÿ™‚

I just went for my regular check up yesterday and my levels were good and where they should be, so I am very pleased about that ๐Ÿ˜€

The official anniversary date is the 10th of December but I wanted to update today! ๐Ÿ˜€

I can’t believe it has been 4 years, although funny enough, I can at the same time. Life before it feels so sooo long ago though. ( Miss those days! ) But, I am just happy and grateful that it is a condition I can live quite well with. ๐Ÿ™‚

It would be amazing if there was to be a cure one day. I will always hope โค

Have a super day, and who knows maybe I will start posting a little bit more again ๐Ÿ™‚

Almost Christmas!!!


* Monday Morning *


My little sporty outfitย from the other day! I love comfy’s and workout clothes! ๐Ÿ˜€

It is Monday morning and I am sooo tired!ย A typical Monday today then ๐Ÿ˜‰

Last night J and I started watching ‘Last Tango In Halifax’. What a super cozy series. We had to continue watching in bed, so we ended up going to sleeps a bit late. ๐Ÿ™‚ I definitely recommend it ๐Ÿ™‚

Wishing you a fab Monday and hope you aren’t as slow as I am today! ๐Ÿ˜€ Also, I hope you had a lovely weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

I am gonna kick my butt and have a work out in a little bit. That’s the plan anyway ๐Ÿ˜‰


* Happy Friday! Weekend Is Here! *


I got my hubby back from business travels last night! Yay! I am not a big fan of being alone for too long, so it was so good to have him back โค I am thinking I will most likely go with him the next time, as it has been a while since I last joined him. It is way more fun than being by myself, for sure! ๐Ÿ˜€

We caughtย up over some wine and snacks by the dining room table when he arrived home.ย Super cozy ๐Ÿ™‚

The weekend has already started for us, as we have Thursday – Saturday weekends here in the Middle East.

The heat and humidity has also arrivedย in full force! The other day you could basically see and touch the humidity! I walked outside for about 10 min and I was soaked! Not exactly pleasant! I feel for the people who does labour work outside. Hats off to them!

Have a super dayย ๐Ÿ˜€


* Stopping By *


Hey There ๐Ÿ™‚

It has been so long since I have been updating my blog so I thought I would stop by againย to say hi. I can see in my stats that there isย still traffic in here, which is funย ๐Ÿ™‚

The first part of the year has been a busy one with some travels, including a fabulous wedding in Delhi, India. That was quite the affair! Add a little Bollywood flare to the mix and voila! You have a super time ๐Ÿ˜€

But, the most important part for my hubby and I, is that we moved houses. Moving is quite the job but, sooo worth it ๐Ÿ™‚ We wanted a bit more central city livingย again and we are loving it โค

Last weekend we celebrated our 10 year anniversary with a little getaway. Thats when the photo above was taken. ๐Ÿ™‚ Lazy days spent reading, chatting andย relaxing by the beach, followedย by lovely dinners and wine in the evening. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a super Saturday!!!

I hope you are all doing well ๐Ÿ™‚


* Merry Christmas To You *


I just want to stop by and wish you a very Merry Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚

The scenery was gorgeous!


On our way!


We had to stop at one of the many beaches ๐Ÿ™‚

* 3 years as T1 Diabetic + UTW *


First of all, yellow is a happy color and as I am feeling UTW -> Under The Weather! It is the only way to go!

Tomorrow there will be 3 years (!) since I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Time goes by surprisingly fast but, it seems a lifetime ago since I lived my life withoutย it… I would be lying if I say that I don’t miss those days I truly do… Sometimes a little crying helps to release a whole lot of tension. It is actually amazing how a good cry just makes your bodyย feel so much calmerย afterwards ๐Ÿ™‚

The other night I dreamt that I was going to compete in swimming ( I used to compete before ) but, my levels were too low… It makes me incredibly sad to think of all the things I could just do whenever I wanted to do them, without the constant worry about my blood sugar levels and, if I am going to be okay. But, at least I got to do a whole lot of things before I got it ๐Ÿ™‚ Obviouslyย I can do so many things now as well, there is just a bit more of a roundabout way to go about it ๐Ÿ™‚

All that matters now is that I have it in control and that I am happy and healthy ๐Ÿ™‚

I am also hopeful that one day there will be a cure and, I will experience life without T1 Diabetes again. That will be the best day of my life โค

I have had a bit of a crappy day today, just being a bit under the weather and dealing with stressy things. But, behind the clouds the sky is a vivid and beautiful blue and blue is my favorite color… so maybe everythingย isn’t so bad after allย ๐Ÿ™‚

yh2Wishing you a super day!!!
