Lame posing at Movenpick Bur Dubai earlier this week when I went for a quick timeout with N. I got the flu right after (spousal privileges, don't jealous) so life was pretty uneventful after that. Hoping to get some personal stuff done this weekend, like sort out the guest room (I think I'm lying/you'll find me on the couch).


Tried out this Indian Healing Clay yesterday that the whole internet is raving about. Didn't notice anything so far (obviously, since it was the first time), but I shall do a full review if I also fall truly, madly, deeply in love with it. It's very easy to use: just mix the clay powder with water or raw apple cider vinegar and apply (I used ACV). You can buy from here in Dubai, if you're feeling like an impatient puppy.


Ordered these mugs from Urban Outfitters and they arrived this week. And what a massive fail it was, you guys. The mugs are so freaking huge, I could sit and have a bubble bath in them. Totally not conducive to chai drinking procedures. So we've dedicated them to soup drinking (since we're having soup for dinner nearly every night) and one of them was chipped so I put a plant in it. Hashtag improvise.


Tiny flatlay I made for Aeropostale this week. That's a boy's tshirt because no section is off-limits for me. Also, special shoutout to the shoes that come in three colors - nude, black and white. I love them, you should get yourself a pair.


Project Runway's new season is here and I have a show to watch on my own again, woohoo. Still shaken after the cancellation of Devious Maids and Mistresses so this is like rehab for me.

Have a great weekend, guys.

    1. Personally, very few pieces at my own place are from IKEA so I don't think not having an IKEA (or similar places) is an issue :) Pakistan is the HOME of custom furniture, get something made from a catalog. I'm often whining that I can't find something that I want here and I wish I was in Pakistan for this! No joke.

  7. They cancelled Devious Maids and Mistresses?!! 😩 oh God. Need to find another mindless TV show to watch now.

    You look so pretty in the Movenpick picture. I have decided that because you are such a nice person inside, it shows on your face. 😘

    1. JEEE, can you believe that? I hope some other network picks them up :/ And that is the nicest thing someone has ever said to me, are you the best? I think yes.

  8. Tell me, how does the plant work in the mug? I thought there needs to be a hole at the bottom for proper drainage? Interesting idea though!

    1. This one's artificial. But I have a couple of real plants in such 'pots', you can just drill a hole in the bottom and the water drains out :)
