April 16 2017
1st birthday party ideas

Planning your kid’s 1st birthday party is similar to planning a wedding, except in this case, I’m the mother of the bride! When it comes to planning an important event such as this, having the right people onboard that can help deliver the job is the most important thing because you do not want to […]

Naomi at 12 months

Naomi Moon Nicolet is 1 year old today! It’s true what they say, the days are long but the months fly by and here she is, already 1 year old. This year felt like such a blur and at the same time I’ve never felt so awake in my life. This is the first time […]






FAMILY-FRIENDLY ACTIVITIES AT THE QATAR INTERNATIONAL FOOD FESTIVAL

April 1 2017
Qatar International Food Festival

We visited the Qatar International Food Festival yesterday and I got a glimpse of what my future would be like now that I have a family. The crowd-heavy events like QIFF that I used to stay away from have become one of those exciting things we do as a family. It’s the start isn’t it? […]






NAOMI AT 11 MONTHS

Naomi at 11 months

Naomi turned 11 months last week and so much has happened into our little angel’s life, particularly the not-so fun bout of sickness that is still lingering until now. Her cold and flu didn’t dampen her cheerful spirit though, which tells me that she’s one resilient little bunny. She had quite a busy social calendar […]






NAOMI AT 10 MONTHS

Naomi at 10 months

I was initially hesitant to expose details about Naomi’s life on the blog as I wanted to keep her personal life private, but she’s growing up so fast and my mommy brain is not as sharp at remembering all her milestones and developments. A little late in the game, I’ve decided to document some precious […]

Anahi Brown

When I first had a baby and was freaking out about everything. It was Anahi who swooped in and hushed my inner mom crazy. I remembered meeting her for the first time at Costa Coffee where I basically admitted that I had a hard time and she was empathetic and understood everything I was going […]

Naomi has had a good routine and schedule ever since she was a newborn. Anthony and I are pretty organized and it’s important for us to have somewhat of a schedule as a family to keep us sane and adaptable to any changes like growth sprout, teething, etc. I also think that it’s good to […]






MAMA TALK WITH FOLLOW YOUR SUNSHINE

October 31 2016
Follow Your Sunshine and Clumsy Chic

As a blogger, you interact so much with your online community that you build your own ‘internet friends’.  My internet friendship with Polly from Follow Your Sunshine started when we both announced our pregnancy on the blog (we were 2 weeks apart). I started following her pregnancy journey on the blog and felt really connected […]






MY EARLY MOTHERHOOD STRUGGLE

October 23 2016
Mother and Baby bonding

I didn’t feel an immediate bond when Naomi was born and I was ashamed to admit it to anyone. How could I not when everyone talks about this all consuming rush of love a mom feels the moment she holds her baby. My birth happened so fast that it left me feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. Anthony handed […]
