I’m FINALLY shutting down my laptop to end the crazy, mad month I’ve had. I’m terribly exhausted but also terribly excited to be packing this weekend for my US trip this coming Monday (I’m going to Baltimore, Maryland!). I’ll be taking off the entire coming week while I settle into my temporary home for a month. After that, I’ll be posting on & off during February, but primarily I’ll take most of the time to just hang out with the family. Hope you’ll enjoy the sporadic posting; I’ll be on Snapchat though full-time so lets hang out there until I get back to Dubai.
“Water bedroom plant”. Sending Nabeel calendar invites like these, lulz. Fingers crossed the plant is still alive by the time I’m back.
Woke up this morning to this surprise breakfast ordered in by Nabeel (in his head he’s doing small celebrations for my birthday next week). Ate way too much but the lassi compromised my brain function so I’m having trouble feeling any regrets.
Packed gifts this morning to take with me on my trip. Did an intense bout of gift shopping yesterday evening with Shehla (she’s a rockstar, FYI). Feet are broken but heart is happy because the gifts are great.
This bag that currently has my heart. A lot of you asked about it when it sneakily showed up in one of my Snaps (it was lying in some corner) so I thought I’d give it some coverage. It’s from Aldo’s new collection.
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.

      It's not THAT neat, probably looks that way 🙂 But I tried to copy the gift-wrapper at The Toy Store, I went to get a gift wrapped a few weeks ago for someone and watched her to see if I could learn anything 🙂
