Doors Around the World

February 9, 2016 – I just turned 36 and I rarely take bathroom selfies. 4 years from now, my life will begin. That’s what they say, life begins at 40 but for me life begins at 36. Right now, I feel like I am starting my life all over again. I am starting to do […] CONTINUE READING →

The World I Know Now

I slept past 12 midnight. While Rolex is sleeping like a baby, I was wide awake. Then my niece AJ who is in the UK sent me a video of herself dancing to the tune of Michael Jackson’s Beat It in class (just for fun and FYI she’s already in College). I thought it was […] CONTINUE READING →

My Muscat Fashion Week Experience

“You look so overweight after seeing all those models.” That’s what Rolex told me after attending the Muscat Fashion Week 2013.
