I don’t make statements that I can’t back up, but this year I had the best birthday ever! I don’t think it is possible to laugh or feel so much love ever, but my family and friends made this year so unbelievably memorable that it will be so hard to top this year’s madness! One pool party, a game of racket ball that ended up in many an odd flying ball, some very questionable jello shots, a ridiculous amount of junk food, so many birthday cakes and the most importantly, being surrounded by everyone I love!

Reunion with Baby Sis!

There is no one in the world that I love as much as my sister. They say that sisters have bonds that are unbreakable and that has to be said about myself and my sister Laila. It had been almost a year and a half when Laila and I were reunited in September and those 10 days went by SO unbelievably fast, but we made sure we made memories to last! Continue reading

Fashion Forward Season 2 took place over Eid weekend in October in Dubai and I don’t think I’ve had a busier 4 day schedule this year! Not only was I attending the shows as “media” but I had my lovely jewellery client, Azza Bijou, exhibiting in The Garden and another client, artist Hala Salem-Achillas in Dubai attending the shows and parties with me too. Queue all time-management skills from many years of event planning and I just about pulled it off! Continue reading

Yes so I went off the blogging grid again! I know I promised to try and stay focused, but I lost my mojo somewhere after my last few posts and honestly haven’t had time to dedicate to C&C. But I’ve decided to kick myself in the arse (metaphorically speaking coz I don’t think it is physically possible to do so!) and get back to what I love, especially as I’ve got to interview some fabulous people over the past few months starting off with the lovely Malin Andrén, designer behind By Malina.
