Mommy Fashion – Pink Blush

I came across Pink Blush when I was pregnant. I wanted to find some cute, modest maternity dresses and their collection is amazing. I’ve continued to shop from them post-partum, so this collaboration really means a lot to me I fell in love with this stunning burgundy dress the moment I saw it, and I had…

Mommy Fashion – Nestling & Co.

Define: Mommy fashion /ˈmämēˈfaSHən/ noun when you need to wear something comfortable but cute, and you need to get ready in 5 minutes 😛 Well this is definitely the case for me! Gone are the days of trying on 10 different outfits and taking hours to get dressed. After becoming a mom, I have downsized my closet…

To My Baby Z, As You Turn A Year Old

Dear Zakariya, Can you believe you are one whole year old today? I can’t. It feels like just yesterday your abbu and I brought you home from the hospital; absolutely clueless about this journey we embarked on as new parents. Do you remember our car ride home from the hospital? Your abbu drove, as I…

Baby Teething Products

Hey guys! Hope you got a full night’s sleep, because we didn’t 😦 Our precious baby is 7 months old and teething. Any parent will tell you how rough this phase is. He’s fussy, cranky, and just not sleeping well. It’s been so hard for him and for us as well. I have been trying different…

New Mommy Products

So here I am, sharing one of my most intimate and personal days…

Pregnancy Memoirs Part 4 – Third Trimester

The honeymoon-phase-second-semester went by quickly. When I was finally enjoying the pregnancy, time just flew by. I was busy with work, and we also decided to moved to a new place before baby came. I was excited to decorate our new home, and every day we added a little bit here and there to make…

Pregnancy Memoirs Part 3 – Second Trimester

I came back to Toronto from Dubai just as I entered second trimester. I still had all of August off before I was scheduled to start teaching from September. The plan was to take it easy and see how things go, and depending on that I would be going back to work or staying home….

Pregnancy Memoirs Part 2 – First Trimester

“I HATE BEING PREGNANT” -the phrase that went through my mind 24/7 during my first trimester. For 12 weeks straight, I was crippled with negative thoughts because I was going through so much physically. I didn’t understand why it had to be that hard to bring a baby into this world. I didn’t feel like a…
