Welcome to my oasis! Formely known as ‘Mommy in Dubai’! I have recently changed my name to… ‘Mommy in Vienna’. I know so original right? Ha! I am now based out of the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria and I thought it was more fitting.
You will find a mix of posts about life in Vienna & Dubai as I am still traveling to and fro (we own a house there and visit every few weeks). In fact, I travel a lot to random places so you will find a mix of EVERYTHING because I am spontaneous like that!
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 World!
Most recently my parenting blog won ‘Highly Commended’ in 2016 by Time Out Dubai Kids! I was shortlisted as well for ‘Best Parent Blogger of 2014, 2015 & 2017’ by TOK. I will never forget the time I was a nominee at the Stylist Arabia Social Media Star Of The Year Awards show in 2015 too!
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.
What I love:

My ad space is limited and done on a first come first serve basis. I will host occasional giveaways and reviews, however they must fit my lifestyle and beliefs. Another service I offer is marketing campaigns which can be for your client or your own product.
I must do a review on your product prior to hosting a giveaway to ensure it is up to my standards.Giveaways are held for a maximum two week period. The winner is selected at random and notified by email. Once they provide me with their shipping information I will contact you to organize prize delivery.
Please note that for all reviews conducted, the cost of shipping is to be covered solely by you, the provider. The item reviewed will not be returned. Please allow a 3 to 4 week turnaround on the review (if you have a specific date in mind then I can work with you to accommodate this request). If the product I receive is something that does not coincide with my values then I will not write about it, or personally recommend it on my social media outlets.
I take blogging very seriously. My goal is to write about products and events that will interest my readers while at the same time doing a terrific job for the brands I am representing.
If you think we are a good match, then email Corrine at firstname.lastname@example.org I would love to hear from you! My media kit and package rates are available upon request.
