MINISO mini-haul

Salaam everyone!   As you probably already know, the VAT has increased in Saudi Arabia from 5% to 15%.This will be a financial burden to some families here. A lot of people took this as an opportunity to go on shopping sprees before the increase happened, myself included. (Although I wasn’t as extreme as my…

Exciting news

Asalaamalaikum everyone!   Hope your summer is going well. I know this hasn’t been the best summer we’ve ever experienced with the Coronavirus and whatnot. I personally have been trying to keep myself busy with a side project, studying for my classes, and, of course, parenting. Even  so, it has been a very boring and…

Office Parties

  After nearly 5 (!!!!!!) years in Saudi, I have come to appreciate many things about the culture. The food, the music, the traditional dress… and the attention to detail regarding parties and gatherings. If I am being honest, I didn’t always appreciate this.  My sisters-in-law used to drive me insane with how carefully and…

That one time I was almost kicked out of a mosque

Okay guys, I got a story for you. Now, y’all probably know by this point that I LOVE Bahrain. I like that it’s just small and comfortable. You’re never far from the sea. It’s just comfortable, honestly. The malls are nice, the food is delicious, the people are pleasant… I could go on and on….

Newest vlogs

During this pandemic, I have been staying home literally all the time. I haven’t been to work since December since I had maternity leave. After my maternity leave, I didn’t return to work because of the COVID outbreak. I’m basically a stay at home mom these days.  With that being said, I have more time…

Raising a bilingual child

The last time Dahlia and I were in USA, my good friend Kaitlin asked if we wanted to have a girls day out. Being in Saudi and away from my closest friends and family, I would never reject an offer for a girls day out. When I asked what she had in mind, she told…

Ocean Blue, Jeddah

  Every time we go to Jeddah, it seems we end up going to the same restaurant: Ocean Blue. It is an American style restaurant located on the beach and beside the aquarium. Do we go there because the food is delicious? No. Quite frankly the food is mediocre at best… We go there because…

Throwback Thursday

It isn’t hard to see that I am terrible at keeping my blog and social media up to date. I have so much cool content that I want to share with you guys, but I have a terrible habit of just uploading the images to my media files and then never doing anything with it….

Thai Wonderlust

When I was 22, I had the privilege of spending a month in Thailand. It was an experience that I thought I’d remember forever, and I will, just not as vividly as I would like. I remember some of the big things I did- went to Phuket Phantasea, saw elephants, went kayaking in caves, was…

Jeddah Aquarium

Having a toddler that is obsessed with “Baby Shark,”we never pass up a chance to visit an aquarium. So naturally we had to visit the Fakieh Aquarium in Jeddah when we visited. If you have ever been to Jeddah, you know the weather can be a bit miserable. Yes, it is as hot as Riyadh,…
