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…

Autumn-y photos with my boys

Oh hi there blog! and readers! how much i have missed logging in more often and writing my heart out. I managed to get back to back bookings over the past few weekends for photoshoots in this last month which was super nice and surprising but also super hectic! Cause after the weekly drill of…

Living in Autumn Heaven

We are definitely heading towards winter in full swing. But you guys, these days we are living in Autumn heaven here in Melbourne. It doesn’t feel anything like Autumn, as its chillier than that, but it looks oh so gorgeous! i don’t think i have ever been in a more beautiful place in my life!…

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. Β 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…

My happy list, if you may.

To say life is hectic these days, would be an understatement. Don’t let the photos and posts fool you, I have never been more exhausted in my life. No matter how much i tell myself to let go, the pursuit of perfection (or the best I can do) doesn’t let me sit for many hours…

We Walk into the Wild …

Some days we step away from all that is structured and organized, planned and curated, and find our way through winding, tangled, growing places. Breathing in the clear, cool air and blowing away the cobwebs. There is mystery and charm in exploring instinctively, without any harnesses. In succumbing to the wild and being utterly fascinated…

Autumn in my backyard

I have always had a soft spot for Autumn. The season of fresh, cool air and crimson leaves. Its a humble season which gives us a chance to slow down after the happenings of the long summer, and also to nourish and prepare ourselves for the incoming ruthless winters. Its the season of full sleeves…
