to sum it up

It's that time of the year when everyone reflects on what the whole year has meant to them. On our part of the world, it's been pretty clear that 2014 has been a year of tragedies.. Even if I was not directly involved in any of the calamities, it's fair to say that nobody in our country has been left unaffected by the incidents.. 
Truly Allah is the best of planners and as Muslims we must believe that he gives us trials and tribulations so that we don't forget Him and so that we will learn from it.. It would just be a shame if we came out of these disasters not being educated on the beauty that lies within the mess..
On a personal note with you dear Khadeeja,.. Mama has learned (and is still learning) the art of patience. As much as I think one of the solutions is for you to have a sibling (if only it were that simple), I'm happy to be the one playing with you and hearing you talk.. Boy you can say a lot these days you smarty pants.. ;) You can tell me stories, sulk, be cheeky (very) and demanding all at once.. The only thing I haven't been able to help you with yet is potty train you... And that will be a story for another post.. 
And so I bid this year goodbye and hope that 2015 will be a year of growth, healing, forgiving, caring, nurturing and all good things for us and mankind.. 
And I hope I won't abandon this blog that long too!
Have a happy new year everyone!

pit stop

Gosh. It's been months. Such a cliche statement that I just had to start this way. The thought of writing has crossed my mind a dozen times and you have no idea how much I've been constructing things to say in here but.. to no avail :( 

As usual I'm squeezing in time. You're happily playing in the bath tub right now while I'm tapping my fingers on this phone and having one eye on you at the same time.. I call this multi-tasking ;) 

But now you're demanding I show you something on my phone.. So I'll continue writing in my mind and get back to focusing on you.. 😘 


Ps/ because you like green :)

My Zalora Affair

So I've been writing for Zalora since July last year and I'm loving it! Tried to link the latest article to my blog but here's ...
