Charles and Keith Curates

June 3, 2017

Social media gets a whole lot of flak … apparently it can make you isolated, shallow and reclusive BUT I disagree. I love how social media can be used for connecting people all over the world and allow you to take part in some amazing opportunities. That’s exactly what happened this month with the Charles and Keith Curates campaign. The trendy accessories brand launched a special digital campaign. They selected artists from all over the world to document fashion through creativity. The campaign highlighted the works of different individuals from all walks of life who inspired them with their artistry […]

Fashion tips for when you feel “meh”

April 25, 2017

We all know that every body is beautiful and there is no “ideal” figure…it’s all about self esteem yada yada yada but no matter how body positive you are, at some point you MIGHT feel stuck in a rut and “meh.” Maybe it’s after having a baby or monthly bloating or putting on the dreaded “Dubai stone” after moving here. With your extra unfamiliar lbs, you grab the first baggy shirt and look wistfully at cute summer dresses with a dose of self loathing about your lack of willpower. Sound familiar? What if I told you that you could wear […]

Creating my Aqua Apartment

March 26, 2017

So, it’s no secret that I’ve always loved shades of aqua. It’s just so soothing and feminine. I’ve never really gotten into decorating or interior design before but once I moved into a new apartment – I considered it a fresh canvas for my dream beach house. It took me quite a few months to get the look I wanted and in that time I’ve collected a few tips and hacks that I wanted to share with you guys. Before I went overboard with my purchases and decorating the house, I scoured Pintrest and magazines for inspiration and some kind […]

Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

March 9, 2017

It’s not everyday you get asked to be in a feature for Hello – so when the writers asked if I would be interested, I was like…errr…hello!?!?!?! Of course i would!!! Jokes aside, I was thrilled to be included in their vibrant “Girls about Town” article. It was all about women from Dubai making waves in the creative industry from different disciplines. There was a great mix of careers from acting to fitness and we were all brought together for our mutual love for fashion and couture. The shoot was styled by Rao Ali Khan who is a celebrity stylist […]

Bloomies Bags n’ more

February 15, 2017

I can’t explain the adrenaline of working on something really BIG! Bloomingdales, the famous department store from New York is synonymous with luxury – everything from their cakes to their sophisticated shoe department. They have a fabulous creative team here in Dubai and are one of my favorite clients. We wanted to work together on a number of artistic projects so here is a play by play of what I’ve been up to! I illustrated my first “little brown bag” sometime in 2015, after my promotional book for Ramadan. They wanted a fashionable and colorful bag depicting the Dubai store […]

An Artistic Wedding

February 9, 2017

I’ve been taking a bit of a breather from blogging lately. If you’re following me on instagram you’ll know that it’s because I’ve been busy planning my wedding. I thought I’d write a quick blog post about the big day and how I incorporated illustration and art into my big day. First, were the invitations. Obvs, I illustrated them. I went for something stylised and elegant. There were three invitations for three different events- the mehendi, the Reception and the Valima. Traditionally, the mehendi is a party with choreographed dancing, music and opulent colors. We had a whole Arabian Nights […]
