Life Offline in Dubai

I spent my absence celebrating my birthday with my entire family who all flew from the Philippines for a stop over in Dubai. They were on their way to Germany for my sister's wedding which I sadly won't be able to attend  (due to motherhood and work - yes,  maternity leave is over).

Three days of touring Dubai led to these photos. Here are glimpses of some of the places they saw and some self treats offline that you might have seen on Instagram.

Of course, she's a part of everything and with us anywhere

Have a great weekend!
Love & light,

  2. Your home is beautiful! And also your baby girl, she's really cute! I'm sure you had fun spending time with your family. Too bad vacation is over. Hope I could visit Dubai too, someday.

  3. she is adorable!!!! and those baguettes look delicious!

  4. That bread! And that baby! I want both equally as badly :)

  5. Love the lamps but I love your baby more! Cutie pie!

  6. awww lil princess Anais is adorable :)
    And your family is all over the world! I wish my family members were spread around the planet too!

  7. Ohhh, you're baby girl is so lovely! And growing so quickly! It must be sad that your maternity leave is that short and now you cannot spend your everyday with her.
    I'm sorry that you cannot attend your sister's weddig but at least you got to see your family and celebrate your birthday with them. I'm sure it was extra special with little Anais around :)

    Hope you're getting through respecting ramadan. A guy in my office is doing ramadan too and it must be really hard for him. Not only does he see people eating and deinking all the time, but also the sun rises around 4:30 in the morning and sets near 11pm - way too long to go without drinking or eating!

    Enjoy every minute with your baby girl.
    Big hug x

  8. Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

    Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

    Sodarshan Kriya

    Sat Nam Kriya

    Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

    Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a few days.

    Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu PDF

    Govinda Lilamrta PDF
