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…

Here’s to a Joyous 2018!

I have experimented alot! I have tried all the different experiences i could think of! I have tried new people and new relationships. I…

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…

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…
