NAOMI AT 11 MONTHS

March 9 2017
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 […]






MOTHER’S DAY MOMENTS

Mother’s Day is coming up soon and I can’t think of a better way of spending it than a day out with my little girl.   My favorite time of the week is on Naomi’s day off at the nursery. I eagerly mark the day in my calendar as ‘mommy and daughter date’, and plan […]






STEP INTO SPRING

Spring

It’s officially March and this marks the arrival of Spring, my favorite season, and particularly Doha’s version of 24 degree outdoor weather. What better way to celebrate than by capturing this feeling into an editorial with the ever fashionable, Pooja Adams from Les Rebelles Squad. I think it’s quite clear that people in Doha, myself […]






AN AFTERNOON OF ELEGANCE WITH LONGINES

An afternoon at the racecourse in Doha looked something like this last week – manicured grass, outdoor seating areas decked out with hydrangea arrangements, and women elegantly parading their best outfit and hat creations at the racecourse. It felt as if I was transported to a movie set… H.H. Emir’s Sword 2017 is the most […]






SUNSHINE AFTER THE RAIN

Petit Bateau

After a couple of miserable rainy days in Doha, the sun decided to finally show itself yesterday morning and I jumped outside to greet it with open arms. It’s a much-needed change as well, especially after a stormy week in my world. Last week was a challenging one for me personally. It included a panicked […]






A FAMILY VALENTINE’S BREAKFAST

February 12 2017
Family Valentines Breakfast

Last Friday, I created a special family Valentine’s breakfast to celebrate our first Valentines as a family. Those who have been following me on Instagram will know that we take our Friday brunch pretty seriously. Since Naomi still doesn’t get the concept of sleeping in during the weekends, we are all up bright and early even […]






VALENTINES DAY GIFT GUIDE FOR HIM

February 8 2017
Valentines Day Gift Guide

Valentines creeps up on me every single year. I have every intention of giving something personalized and thoughtful each year but in reality, the thought of buying a present dons on me only a week before Valentines. I gave up on that romantic notion this year. Instead, I decided to look for something that Anthony […]






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 […]






MAMA TALK: ANAHI BROWN

January 31 2017
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 […]






HAKKASAN CELEBRATES CHINESE NEW YEAR

Hakkasan Chinese New Year

Hakkasan was crowing in victory as they wowed guests with their decadent Chinese New Year signature menu. My romantic relationship with my husband has been on the snooze button ever since we had a baby. Although, we’ve enjoyed cozy nights at home, there’s really nothing exciting about binge watching Netflix in our pajamas and sharing […]
