You know what they say – time flies when you’re having fun. And my how two years have flown by! TWO YEARS! That’s a total of 730 days of thinking about what to eat, taking photos of food and most importantly learning the lesson that as important a passion project may be, you sometimes have to change some of your ideas because life is forcing you to change. But we’ve loved (and sometimes hated) every minute of it.
We owe the fact that we’re even moving into a third year to the She said tribe. The subscribers of our blog, commenters, Instagram photo-likers, Facebook sharers, re-tweeters and more recently, award voters (woohoo!). Wherever in the world you are, you are all so AMAZING. We know you are out there and we want to thank you from the bottom of our very filled hearts.
Having said that, the blogging world can sometimes be a big black hole where no sound travels. There have been days we’ve wanted to stand up and yell “Hello! Is anyone out there?” (Our mums, restauranteurs, and rocking PR agency friends don’t count!) Simply because we blog for people to read and love. And while we hope that is happening, we sure would like to know that it is.
And so, we want to use our second birthday to ask you if you are reading and following, what would you like to see more of? Leave a comment and let us know. More recipes? More restaurants? Videos? Round-ups? Tell us. We want to know!
And remember those industry friends we mentioned? We weren’t kidding about how awesome they are! To share our celebration with all of you, they’ve hooked us up with some fabulous giveaways. Just leave us a comment with a super cool idea that we can bring to life for you, or even just what you’d like to see more of on this site, and you could be enjoying one of these amazing treats!
SHE SAID TURNS TWO – GIVE AWAYS

One of the Middle East’s leading supermarket chains and undoubtedly one of our favourites, Spinneys is giving away a AED 250 gift voucher to one lucky winner! We love them not just for their sustainably sourced quality produce and GMO free, no added hormone meats, but also the wonderful selection of treats they import from around the world. Best place to create a gift hamper.
So there you go! Leave us a comment here telling us what it is you would like to see more of on the blog and we’ll pick winners on Tuesday (27th September). If you’re keen to win any of these in particular, also mention that!
