Masala Awards 2017

December 28, 2017

My love for the Bollywood film industry has been turbulent all my life. I was blindly in love as a teenager with movies like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Mohobbatein and DDLJ. Then I got skeptical and too cool for school and shunned it for a while. Nowadays, I am having a Bollywood renaissance – I like GOOD movies and great stories … ones that are less filmi with more substance. “Masala” is a Dubai based magazine that centers around Bollywood celebrity gossip, music, TV and local socialites. Every year they host “The Masala Awards” highlighting South Asian talent. This year […]

Creating my Aqua Apartment

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 […]


Date night at Katana Dubai

October 3, 2016

This year is my favorite time of year! When the blistering heat of the city FINALLY subsides and you think to yourself with satisfaction that “winter is coming.” Unlike Game of Thrones, winter over HERE ain’t so sinister. It’s when all the fun, outdoorsy stuff fills up your calendar and you really can enjoy Dubai once again. Ripe Market, jazz nights, shisha, food trucks and of course, fine dining with a view. I discovered a total gem of a restaurant last week – Katana Dubai. The very hip and slick Japanese restaurant is a favorite with celebrities in LA and […]
