  • Toddler activities

    I’ve been MIA for a while I apologise, between my constant server crashes (anyone else?) and baby classes in Dubai, I’ve been swamped!

  • Tips for travelling with baby

    The first time I travelled with baby Zay was when he was 6 months old. I had to travel alone to Dubai as my husband was already working there at the time. It was extremely stressful to say the least! We have subsequently moved to Dubai and I have travelled alone with baby thrice already. […]

  • About maternity bras

    Choosing the best maternity bra (which will assist in everyday wear even when you’re not breastfeeding) is essential. I never thought a good fitting bra would make such a huge difference to my body shape until I went to get professionally fitted.   It definitely made me look slimmer.
