Welcome to my oasis! I am a young Mommy of 2 kids. My lifestyle blog has a sprinkle of heartfelt posts, detailed and honest reviews, along with first class giveaways. My goal is to make your life as a parent/parent-to-be/tourist easier in this ever growing and changing cosmopolitan city. Most recently I was a nominee at the Stylist Arabia Social Media Star Of The Year Awards show for my parenting blog. Further more, I was shortlisted for ‘Best Parent Blogger of 2014 & 2015’ by Time Out Dubai Awards. My articles have been in publications such as: What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Condé Nast Traveller Middle East, Good House Keeping Middle East, Time Out Dubai Kids, Emirates Woman, Khaleej Times, Mother Baby & Child, Gulf News and many more. In 2015, I collaborated with Yahoo and have two videos (1,2) featured on their page.

My dream is to become the next budding Martha Stewart of the Middle East with a dash of kawaii (Japanese for cute/adorable).
