LAST POST OF 2016Β 

As they say “Life is a roller coaster” 🎒.Sometimes things seem to be good and sometimes bad.Like most of you I have being through a lot in life as well,so as year 2016 is coming to an end and as it will be my last post of the year thought of sharing with you all my top 4 (πŸ‘πŸ»)Best and (πŸ‘ŽπŸ»)Worst moments I have had in the year 2016.

πŸ‘πŸ»Started my blog-I always thought of doing something in life.As being a full-time mother I wanted to do something within home as traveling back and forth was hard for me.No other better way of than blogging from home.I am glad I starting something I love doing (being a mom) and sharing my experiences with all.

πŸ‘πŸ»Princess Z was fully potty trained-I was really glad that I started potty training Princess Z when she was 2+ (October) and by the end she was 3 in December she started to have an idea what it’s like to go to the bathroom.Being a fast learner she quickly catched up and by the month of April she started to use the bathroom.The visits were frequent but that was the only way to encourage her to move on and get the habit of using the toilet and by the end she started her nursery she’s was fully trained and my hard work paid off.

πŸ‘πŸ»Princess Z started going to a nursery-One of the most major decisions in life to find the right nursery and a loving teacher.Lots of research and walk-ins made life a bit easy but time was delayed due to my separation and stuff but Thank Allah Princess Z joined a nursery and enjoys going in everyday.

πŸ‘πŸ»Shifted to our new home-All our lives we have lived in an apartment but this year (2016)our decision to shift in a villa was worth it.Seriously villa life is way more peaceful and we enjoy ever minute in it.Whether it’s spending time together while watching tv or playing outside in our very own garden.

πŸ‘ŽπŸ»One of my most heartbreaking thing happened in 2016 was that my grandfather passed away (Princess Z’s great grandfather πŸ‘΄πŸ»).I was really close to him and he was one of my favorite person in the family.Very down to earth,humorous and the most handsome.May Allah’s blessings be upon you and may he Rest In Peace in the heavens above

πŸ‘ŽπŸ»Gained weight-As usual didn’t succeed in losing weight at all in the beginning but as the year is coming to an end losing 2kgs seems like a big accomplishment.Hopefully will try again next year 😫

πŸ‘ŽπŸ»Princess Z was admitted to the hospital for pneumonia One of the worst days of my life.Alhamdulillah Princess Z had never fallen sick 😷 in the past year but this year being hospitalized made me feel worse and weak like never before and hopes it never happens again.

πŸ‘ŽπŸ»No traveling-Due to everyone’s busy schedule traveling was not in our diary this year.Hopefully next year we might have something planned.

I hope the next coming year (2017) gives a beautiful start in all our lives and is less bumpy and brings a lot of more happiness,good luck and blessings .Ameen

Happy New Year in advance πŸŽ‰

St.Regis Hotel Winter Garden Market

ST. REGIS HOTEL WINTER GARDEN MARKET

Our visit to the St.Regis Winter Garden Market was short but fun.First of all I didn’t know there was actually a Christmas event going on over there but later found out by a family friend.As it was about to end (the next day 31st of December )didn’t wanted to miss it,so paid a visit the same evening.Set on the beautiful St.Regis hotel,on Shiekh Zayed Road this market is surely to be visited for a different experience.Its not very big though and (wouldn’t take much of your time) but rather the trip is short and fun.Princess Z and I surely enjoyed our time there .

Moving over,They had 2 separate outdoor zones.The market stall placed on the left and the kids entertainment zone on the right.We didn’t pay a visit to the food stall area as we weren’t hungry but directly when to the kids zone.Where they had quite a few entertainment for kids.From the choo choo mini-train,to the Carousel ride,a snow globe,A FREE snow fight zone, a small snack stall(selling popcorn and candy floss),gingerbread decorating area,coloring zone as well as a visit to Santa πŸŽ…πŸ» who was sitting and welcoming kids in his little Grotto for a FREE picture.Tickets were to be bought from the cashier desk ,each ride and snack costing you 10 Dhs.The great thing about all the rides was that they were quite long (around 10mins each)Princess Z did each of every thing except for the carousel,(she loved it and went on it twice).We couldn’t go for the snow globe as it was out of order 😞(Maybe next time).Anyway the total cost of our entertainment was 40Dhs (quite reasonable isn’t Β it).

EATLESS Health Supplement

EATLESS Health Supplement

EAT LESS HEALTH SUPPLEMENT

I have been trying to lose weight for a few months now.Every year I try too but never succeed πŸ˜”.The first step I thought of taking this time was control my eating habits.Dubai has a lot to offer when it comes to food and people who are foodies like me it’s difficult for them to control their appetite with so much food around.

Anyway to help me lose weight (before New Year that is),I ordered for a 14-day course health supplement called eat less.As the name says it eat less,it helps control your appetite and helps you stay away from fat and sugary food.This product is 100% natural made with only one ingredient (100% natural spinach extract). Its Scientifically proven and having no side effects.

I began my day by drinking this powder mixed in water/juice.(First thing in the morning) then carrying on with my healthy breakfast 🍳.(I am one of those person who usually skipped breakfast as I can’t have a heavy meal in the morning but tried to,these 2weeks). The first few days were hard for me.I planned quitting but some motivation in me kept me going.The taste didn’t seem so bad at first but as days were passing by I wanted to get over it 😫.Everything I ate made me taste like spinach πŸ˜–.Also,a few toilet visits were there as well in the beginning but ended soon.My diet was normal.EatingΒ regular home-made food but in small portions,totally avoiding fast food,drinks plus junk food.I was hoping to lose up to 5-6kgs in 2 weeks but unfortunately lost only 2 kg in 2 weeks

Anyway I am happy to lose 2kgs as well (at least I lost some kg πŸ™‚) and am planning to continue with this after New Year Eves with a stricter diet and a healthy lifestyle.

NOTE:This Appetite Suppression supplement should be taken as a daily dose first thing in the morning as it can then work throughout the day.

Winter Collection

Winter Collection

As winter is approaching it’s time to cuddle up the kids in their winter wear.Princess Z is not fond of jackets/or coats.So this year I thought of buying her warm clothes that make her feel comfortable and she doesn’t have to cover herself with layers.Whether your buying for your boys/girls…listed below are my Top 4 shops I highly recommend to visit and buy winter clothes from:

1.MARKS & SPENCER-If your looking for bright colors and lots of bling this winter than Marks & Spencer is a must visit.Having a lovely and a massive variety of winter collection for both boy and girls it was hard to go limited.(liked mostly everything they had ). The clothes are a bit pricey but they will surely last till next season.Here are a few items I picked and bought for princess Z.(She was happy to model in them too πŸ™‚ )

P.S They have a great collection of winter sets for girls(long sweaters with stockings)

Loved the color so bought this set for Princess Z

THE CHILDREN’S PLACE-If your looking for something more comfortable like track suits for your kids to keep them warm this winter than this is the place.It was hard to find something that fitted Princess Z perfectly here (Being taller than her age group and a bit skinny). The clothes were either lose or either short.But nevertheless they have a great variety of winter clothing specially track suits.Sizes ranging from 2T-7T.

These are a few items I got for Princess Z

MOTHER CARE-Honestly I prefer buying from mother care during sale time as you get to save a lot.But Every branch according to me doesn’t have the same collection.They have a lot to offer from warm pajamas suits to jackets,sweaters,pullover and much more.This is one stop shop for all your winter needs.

F&F- There are only a few outlets of F&F here in Dubai.They have great collection of jackets,sweaters,stockings as well a great variety of Christmas jumpers.I just bought a Christmas jumper from here for Princess Z this time as the things I liked didn’t have her size.P.S The sizes here sell out fast.

TISHTASH MUMMY MEDIA PRESS DAY

It was a pleasure to be invited by TishTash at the Mummy Media Press Day Event at Fortnum & Mason (Dubai Mall). Frankly speaking this was my very first event invitation as a mommy blogger.I was totally inΒ  and couldn’t wait to meet the other beautiful mommies.

My morning was about to get exciting so I was there on time.Once I reached I couldn’t stop staring at the beautiful interiors.The tables were all set for all the guests on the upper level of Fortnum & Mason.Not only this there were small stalls around of brands and pampering stations to entertain the lovely mummies πŸ˜€

After clicking a few pics I grabbed my cup of coffee and gathered around each stall to know more about them.Brands included

It was pleasure knowing each and every brand and what they were specialized in.Once I was done I hurried myself to the hair station and got my hair curled by one of the professionals from The Nail Pavilion.I have never had a different hairstyle since the past 2 years so I was immediately in love with it. πŸ™‚ .The next thing was my skin analysis at the Herbal Essence table.It was a long procedure and I was totally nervous about it but anyway my results was dehydrated skin because of very less water consumption πŸ™ .

As I was getting late from my daughters school meeting I had to leave early.On my way out I was handed over a big heavy bag filled with goodies.Thank you TishTash and the lovely brands for this Β πŸ™‚
