DIY - Facial Scrub!

Hey buddies!
Hope you all had great holidays. Mine went a bad. We thought of spending our Eid vacation with my Sister in law and family in Fujairah but my son got totally uncomfortable with new location, place and weather that we had to return back home on Eid day itself. But anyway, guess we have to make little adjustments to keep the baby comfortable and that is all I was concerned about.
So into today's post, in my AM & PM cleanser post I talked about the homemade scrub I use on Mondays and Thursdays. So here I am to share with you the recipe!

Restaurant Review - Nando's, Al Raha - Abu Dhabi

This is my very first restaurant review. I used to love reading restaurant reviews on magazines and newspapers but never did I imagine then that I would get a chance to do one. I was over the moon when I got the opportunity to visit Nando's. I had heard good reviews about it from friends and was already planning to check them out.

Haircut and Styling with Changes Salon, Abu Dhabi - Review

Hey All,

How are you all doing? I have been really really busy with baby and job. Days are moving so fast that I can't keep track of anything! So amidst all this, I have really been craving to do something about my hair. During my pregnancy, my hair was at its best. Due to increase in hormones, my hair texture was so good and I literally had no hairfall. My hair grew out longer and I was totally in love with my hair. But after delivery, around the 5th month my hair started to fall out real bad. I was also not able to care for it properly, so it has totally become damaged and rough. I already have curly hair, so getting it damaged and rough makes it very difficult to manage. I wanted to learn how to properly style my curly hair and get a good haircut.

Postpartum Update - 4 months

Picture drawn by my artist sisyy, Asmiya Basheer
During the first week of his 3rd month, I was normally feeding him when he pushed away and looked at me. He usually just dozes off to sleep feeding so this was unusual! As I looked on he cooed and his lips parted into his First Teethless Gummy Smile. OMG you guys!!! That was such a beautiful moment! I can't just properly describe how I felt but I just wanted to cry and laugh and smother him with kisses and hugs all at once! All the pains, hardships and struggles vanished in a second! As I fought back my emotions to squeeze the daylights out of him, he closed his eyes and went back to feeding!

Half Year Favorites - 2014!

It’s been a really long time I have done my monthly favorites – around 4 months to be exact. We have finished half of 2014 already (how did that even happen??), so I thought of doing a half year favorites and recap this time. Being a new working mother, I am still learning to settle into this new life. Days move so fast now that I can’t believe my son is already completing his 3rd month of life! Alhamdulilah!!

Half year Recap - 2014

Hey Buddies!!
How is life treating you? Mine has been treating me with loads of ups and downs! It’s true what they say you know, after giving birth to a baby a new life starts – not just physically but mentally as well. I am still amidst of settling into this new life so I apologize for not being very active over here. I hope you all understand.

Baseless Traditions of my Country - Postpartum Edition!

In my honourable Indian culture, A lady who has delivered is not allowed to step out for 90 days! Up to 40 days you are not even supposed to look at the sky! Yes! Ask why and there is no reason to it, it's just bad. Now because most ladies give birth in hospitals, there is no choice when it comes to going there but other than that you go no where! And during this period your husband can go touring with friends and enjoy his freedom. Its solely the duty of the mother and other ladies in the house to take care of the baby!

Birth Story of Little Zain - Part 2

The day after my operation, when I woke up I could feel the pain of the stitches kicking in. Though I was in pain, I was looking forward to cuddle my baby, play with him, click pictures with him and what not. Doctor came to check me and told me I was healing well and could start feeding the baby. She told as I had operation, it will take a little time for the milk to come in. The baby's doctor came in and checked my baby and said he was all well and all he needed now was momma's milk.
From now, my frustrating and depressing period starts!!

Birth Story of Little Zain - Part 1

The birth of my little boy was a learning experience. It was a bit depressing and testing time for me. I was doubtful if I should do this post or not as all birth stories I read till now were all happy joyful ones! But I thought I'd share my story so that you can learn from my experience as well!

Hello Everyone!
How you all doing? Yes people, by the grace of God, I am alive!! I know I have been MIA for a while!
I never thought I would be able to do this post. February has been a very testing month for me. I got infected with viral flu and cough in my 32nd week of pregnancy and had a real tough time. I will write more about it in my recap post but for now let’s have a quick go through my favorites this month.
