miss b loves.........Bahlsen alphabet cookies

During a recent trip to Germany mr b found these delicious alphabet cookies in a supermarket in Munich.

They are called ABC Russisch Brot which translates as Russian Bread. I was curious about the name but after a bit of detective work I found an interesting story here at delicious days .

I decided to have a play around with them (munching on a few at the same time - it's a wonder I had enough letters left to make up all these words!) Not only are they great fun (and educational!) they taste amazing - crunchy, light and made with caramel and cocoa.

miss b loves........stylish cinemas..and surprisingly... Mission Impossible!

'The Business Class Movie Experience'

Sometimes watching a film at the cinema is a disappointment - it's not usually the fault of the actual film but more the cinema experience .....too loud....seats too uncomfortable...... 

It's always such a pleasure going to the cinema in Dubai - particularly the Reel Cinema at Dubai Marina Mall for the 'business class movie experience' where 'you can enjoy all the action in style' - huge twin reclining seats (ergonomically designed!), waiter service, and for a small additional coast - pillows and blankets!

miss b loves........Great Cake Places London 2012

As someone who is always on the look-out for amazing tea shops, pâtisseries and cafés, I knew that that 'Great Cake Places London 2012' was a book I had to have on my shelf! Complete with mouth-watering pictures of the most wonderful cakes, this very pretty book introduces a huge selection of London's best and exceptional cake shops and cafés.

miss b loves ......Shakespeare and Co Café, Dubai Marina

I love sleek, minimalist cafés ( Chocolat Chic and Hey Sugar, formerly Sugar Daddy's are two of my favourites) but when Shakespeare and Co opened a new branch in Dubai Marina Mall with panoramic views of the Marina I couldn't wait to pay them a visit. The Victorian-inspired décor and vibrant colours create an Alice in Wonderland feel with quirky chandeliers and ornaments.

miss b loves.....New Year's Eve at Mazina, The Address Hotel, Dubai Marina

Each year we have a special family treat to celebrate New Year's Eve and for 2011 it was an international buffet with live cooking stations at the Mazina restaurant in a very chic and stylish hotel - The Address, Dubai Marina.    

I love these huge candles!
