Natural chic for your bathroom..

My family and I, as a lot of expats do in Dubai, rent our home. Which means working with what we’ve got in terms of fixtures, fittings and decor. Interior Arabian decor tends to be dark woods and marble which is a tad different to what we’ve been used to back home. Lately, I’ve been […]

Adventure Diaries : Three Phuket Resorts

This Summer my family and I took ourselves to Phuket in Thailand for a 15 day break from the Desert that is Dubai.  The far-east has always been on or to-do list and Phuket seemed like a great choice as it’s a 6.5 hour direct flight from Dubai. We took a chance and went in […]

Breastfeeding; the bad, the good & the pretty. 

I’m not going to preach to you about why you should breastfeed your baby over formula feeding. I’ve had two children, as much as I wanted to enjoy breastfeeding with my first baby, after two months it simply didn’t work out.
