This Season of Motherhood.

This season of life. This season of motherhood. This season of being forever-on-the-go. This season of getting sloppy toddler kisses all over the face, all day long. This season of on-the-loop school pickups, dropoffs, packing lunches and washing uniforms. This season of getting rainbow 🌈 love hearts 💕 from a 5 year old everyday. This…

Our travels to Tasmania (Part I)

April has gone by so fast and yet our family has managed to pack away so many sweet memories in these past short weeks. We took a trip to the Tasmanian Islands during the second half of the Easter break. I turned 31 and Azaan turned 3 while we were away. Two family birthday celebrations…

Azaan turns THREE !

Mothering hamza was so new and unpredictable and different. I was unsure, i didnt know right from wrong. I was treading ever-so-slightly the untravelled path, afraid of making a mistake, of doing wrong by him. I didnt know what to expect, when to expect. I was a new mother with all the classic new-mother traits….

Life these days.

Right now, its 630PM (when I first wrote the unfinished version of this). And both the kids are huddled together on the couch engrossed in a game together, cheering each other on and taking turns and having the sweetest moment. I m gonna cherish it much as just an hour ago, i had to play…

Our Boho-Modern Outdoor Space

I love rummaging through markets for unusual fabrics, and I can’t pass a vintage shop or thrift store without popping in. I love discovering dated, classic furniture pieces on neighborhood front yards waiting to be rescued and touched up for a new home. I get sad when I can’t bring those pieces home and revive…

The busy mother

Being a mother is a tough gig. But being a mother in a foreign land is impossibly hard at times. You are not just responsible for your kids, but every single aspect of ‘living ‘imaginable has to be done manually by you. Scrub the toilet, wash the car, fix the broken light, make lunches n…

Seared Salmon with Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce

Do you want to serve up your family a restaurant worthy dish, prepared by you in under 30 mins? Well, 30 mins if you include setting up the table, checking and replying to a few msgs, cleaning up the sink of dirty dishes, yelling at the kids to pick up the strewn toys 37th time…

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday readers ! On Fridays, i like to wind down at home after a buzzing week of activities. And today I am so thankful that I havent got much going on, cause after a very busy and hectic past 5 or 6 weeks, i am just craving a major lazy time at home with…

Familia in Town!

Hello lovely people, I know I have done a disappearing act from the blog this month. But if you knew how many things I am juggling in life these days, you would totally understand. My parents are visiting us in Melbourne from Pakistan and most of my time is occupied arround them. They are only…

Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Rice

When I first heard about the Cauliflower Rice, I mocked, I rolled my eyes, I was pretty clear on this that i would never make them for myself. I mean how can you substitute good old rice with a vegetable and that too Cauliflower ( i was never a big fan of it). Behold how the…

Hello guys! Its been a while since I have shared any recipe on the blog. Specially since I love creating new recipes and doing food photos. But I guess in the past many months, I have mostly just been cooking classic recipes : lots of curries, rice and pasta dishes. Good old comfort food during…
