Where is my village? *Mama rants*

Grab your tea or coffee and get ready for a full-on Mama rant! Some days its so hard to find joy in this everyday mundane life. Some days running away from it all seems so tempting! You know those days when I still sometimes have to clean poop from the toilet floor due to a…

Autumn Stories

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” — Lauren DeStefano I was just browsing my blog and found not one, not two, but THREE posts last year dedicated to autumn. Boy, I must really…

Shaking hands with reality.

I mostly try to come to this space for positivity, sharing happy thoughts, constructive lifestyle stuff. But there is always another side to the things too. I dont believe in hiding the negative parts but i understand that joy sparks more joy, happiness begets happiness, and there have been countless times when i have been…

Random Talks

Hi guys! I think taking long hiatus from this blog is becoming my style. Its not for the lack of words or ideas or things to share though. But only for the lack of time and my general laziness/busyness. I have always loved coming to this space with a chaye on hand, hanging in my…

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…

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…

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…

Our Bohemian Modern Living Room!

Hi guys! Since a long time I have been meaning to share some detailed photos of our home, starting with the living room. But the obnoxious perfectionist in me always keeps throwing new ideas to implement and they look so good in my head that i hesitate to share it in its current state. But…

Imaginative Play. Spring Cleaning. Bits n pieces.

With the weather changed, the kids are playing outside a lot more which is always good. They hang around the front yard for a while in the mornings, where hamza rides his skooter and Azaan watches out for monsters (and bird potty). And when they get bored from that, i guide them to the backyard…
