Restautant Vendôme Paris

September 3, 2017

Everyone who knows me, knows how much I love French food. This weekend I had the chance to go to a lovely restaurant called Vendôme Paris specialized in French cuisine but with additional international dishes as a wider selection. I went to the Jumeirah branch, and upon entering you see the towers of Macarons on the display. A variety of patisserie and fresh breads are prepared for dining-in or take-away.…

Polka Dots & Warm Scones

July 10, 2017

Butter. My forever love. I am lucky to have a fast metabolism because I cannot see my life without butter. Give me some warm bread and tea and I am the happiest. Over the weekend, I was aching to go out but wanted to go somewhere casual. Alladin and I ended up going to the Lime Tree Cafe on Jumeirah. I always like the place because it is…

Sunset walk by Burj Al Arab

July 2, 2017

I love sunsets. Not much of a secret. The mute colors and the soft light are my obsession. Hubby and I went for a walk by Jumeirah beach, hunting for BuQtair . It’s a casual fish restaurant. They serve curried deep-fried fish and shrimp from the catch of the day at very affordable prices . It’s one of the best kept secrets of Dubai. I love it. A blend…

A Day in The Jais Mountain

June 27, 2017

Jebel Jais is the UAE’s tallest mountain and is every bit as mesmerizing as a tall mountain should be. The Mountain is located in the Emirate of Ras El Khaima,  on the border between Oman and United Arab Emirates. The height of the mountain is 1,911 m (6,268 feet). We drove from Dubai, and it took us 1,5 hours to get to the highest point of mountain (you can drive up,…


A Scent of the Middle-East Jo Malone Velvet Rose & Oud

June 22, 2017

Living in Dubai, I got attached to the smell of Oud or Agarwood. The strong smell and long lasting qualities of Agarwood makes it a favorite among locals. Agarwood is mostly burned as incense during festivities, but a lot of people still prefer using it as a perfume (compact or oil). I never thought that I could wear Oud until I came across Jo Malone’s Velvet Rose & Oud…

My Summer trip to Santiago de Chile

June 15, 2017

Alladin always wanted to go to Santiago. He often told me how he would love to retire there. So, it was obvious would be part of our South America Trip.  Chile was as expected: calm, modern and intriguing. Santiago, in particular, was delightful. We loved touring all the main area from the Mercado Central to the Barrio Bellavista, the Moneda, San Cristobal Hill, Alameda, The Museum of History…

Getting Married in 6 Continents

June 8, 2017
Bridal shoot in New York

Travelling  the world instead of throwing a big expensive wedding seemed more attractive and also more feasible.  I have never been a girl that fantasized on having her own wedding. In fact, the idea of throwing yet one more Moroccan wedding with all the stress and hoopla it entails freaked me out. But, I guess I didn’t hold a strong stance on this either. Arab families see traditional weddings…

My Trip to Brazil: Rio De Janeiro & Sao Paulo

June 6, 2017

Brazil is never boring. There is always someone dancing somewhere or drinking Ciapirinhas. There is always music in the streets and pick-pockets to watch out from. Brazil cannot be taken for granted.  Our first stop in Brazil was Sao Paulo. We were very fortunate, because a couple we are friends with offered to host us and show us around. Sao Paulo Sao Paulo is a very chill city, with…
