  • Gratitude Is Everything!

    Sometimes it’s easy to see what’s missing, what others have, what you need to live a dream life. Realisation that this life isn’t meant to be perfect helps so much!

    A Recipe: I made Jordanian Mansaf 😋!

    Many moons ago when I first got married, my husband took me on a trip to a foreign land. It was the first time I’d been anywhere apart from Pakistan or Saudi Arabia (I was very lucky to have made my first umrah trip just a year before) and I was really excited. I didn’t […]

    My DoTerra Story- Sharing is Caring :-)

    This is my story and not a promotion. DoTerra Essential Oils came into my life one sunny day in Wales when I had a headache. Funnily (and also quite sadly) I’d get this recurrent headache every time I travelled to Wales. Since Wales has become my no-aeroplane favourite holiday destination over the past few years, […]

  • Coming Of Age

    Coming Of Age

    So we decided to have a get together (definitely not calling it a partaaaay in front of the boys!). It was for my daughter and her cousins- we thought it was about time we celebrated that they were growing up. We based a lot of the discussions around the book featured in the picture above […]
