My Indoor Garden

I was never much into plants. My mom was a huge fan always and growing up I remember she would decorate our home with indoor plants and she would always a huge collection of outdoor ones too. When I got married and starting setting up my own place, I discovered my love for interiors and…

SIX months in Melbourne :: Life Updates

Today marks six months to the day when I arrived in Melbourne late one night after tackling the seemingly heroic feat of such a long flight alone with the boys. So my trail of thoughts went back to all that happened within these last few months and I felt like writing a blog on it….

As I step into the culinary world ..

“Find something you’re passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it” – Julia Child Its been a while since I have logged into this space. Couldn’t find my writing mojo between juggling all the balls. We are deep in the thick of winters here in Melbourne. Sniffly noses, feverish bodies, and cough-y chests haven’t seen the…

Life in a Family Home :: T01

There is nothing quite like waking up to a clean and organized house. When the stove has been wiped off the grease, dishwasher loaded and run, laundry folded n put away, shoes back to their racks according to the need and priority, toys back in the baskets, strewn clothes in hamper or dressers, garbage taken…

House Project :: Melbourne Photo Wall

Today I am sharing a house makeover project that I recently did for my place. Nothing too exciting or dramatic. Just a simple gallery wall. But its a project that I really enjoyed doing and am very happy with the final outlook. Since we moved to Riyadh, I have been meaning to make a gallery…

First week of Winter : Embracing the wet and cold

The start of the month of Ramadan brought with it the desire for nesting in me. The fact that the first week of winter coincided with it was a helping factor too. And the scratchy throats, cough-y nights and feverish days. As I dont have any photoshoot planned for this weekend, it was time for…

When dreams come true …

I never dreamed of an extravagant or a luxurious lifestyle. For me, it was always about a small family with lots of laughter filling our days and a bunch of snuggles filling our nights.  A happy home, roomy enough for the kids to run around, and small enough for it be cozy and warm. A…

Of showers. And woolens. And comfort reading.

They say its four seasons in a day here in Melbourne, and while that is all true and seen, these days its mostly rains and showers. The sun peaks out for just a few moments and i start to get optimistic but all my hopes and plans are drenched wet again. Its bye-bye to the…

Rushing against time.

Que sera, sera Whatever will be, will be The future’s not ours to see Que sera, sera What will be, will be These days are passing by in a blur, a frenzy of activities, one after another. I can’t believe its Thursday already, officially almost end of the week. We have made our schedules far…

Little Gardeners

These days, I am often found (whenever i can sneak a couple of minutes) perched on the steps of our wooden deck, soaking up the last of the summer sun, dreaming of growing a veggie garden of sorts, contemplating all the hindrances I face. Right now our backyard tells a story of untamed grass and…
