Family photo with Nabeel’s side. This week has been all about family stuff, we’ve mostly been busy with his niece and nephew. Today we’re taking them to Motion Gate (90% confirmed). On Saturday night, Nabeel and I are going to the Coldplay concert with friends – I had some seriously awesome plans of vegetating on my couch for new year’s eve but then everyone booked the tickets so now I’m going. I actually went when they came in 2011 for new year’s eve and it was EPIC. Nabeel and I had splurged then and got tickets for the Golden Circle (the performance is absolutely beyond, that close to the stage) – this time we’re doing stingy style but fingers crossed we’ll enjoy the same. Chris Martin is a magician and new year’s eve just makes it all the more better (the confetti, the countdown, the fireworks, all solid stuff). Come on Snap, I’ll post bits of everything (ID: shehzeen-r).
Inglot sent me so many new year goodies. Lipsticks, lip liners, mascara and a mini eyeshadow palette – all really spicy colors. I think I’ll post a picture of the colors soon. I can’t use all right away so I’m considering doing a giveaway of some of these? Tell me.
The fog’s been pretty unbelievable this week. Have been loving the living room lights against the hazy blue so much, so much.
Got my Omani fort to light up. Tiny woohoo. I got this from Nizwa Souq on my trip to Oman a few weeks ago.
Last weekend’s fake posing with the Infiniti QX80, lulz. Cannot get a car and then not do Dil Chahta Hai kind of stuff with it; that would be just wrong and I have very strong values and principles (will post about our trip next week, I think).
If anything brightened your week or there’s something you’re looking forward to for the weekend, I’d love to know. Have a great weekend, you guys.


  1. Happiest family and i seen how much you all enjoyed in the weekend in all the images…hope you got the best moments…great time…

  2. So I am your regular reader from quite some time now. I was wondering how to celebrate the new year. And should I have in mind to kick start, there were few things that I have conceived , majorely from your posts
    1. Not to run after money , rather than invest time in building skills / hobbies / interests that may eventually become source of earning
    2. Travel the length and breadth of this lovely planet . Sometimes we neglect our vicinites and skip manageable outings. Not to do that
    3. Family life is important and setting up home office can potentially bring a sustainable career path for girls , specially with kids.

      Hehe. Don't worry about missing Motion Gate, it wasn't fully open so better for you to check it out on a later trip 🙂

  8. er ma gerds I use Dil Chahta Hai as a measuring point for all dosti yaari related stuff, there's a lot of small things that make me happy in general but hanging out with my girls for New Years Eve, dhaba hoppping and my best friend's wedding are the things that are rocking my world :")
