2016: Chapter 1

29 take #4 

If i learned anything about myself in the past 30+ years, it's if and when i feel like doing something, i should do it otherwise that want, need and desire withers away and dies a horrible unspoken death.

This morning i woke up and decided to make a cup of coffee and write, granted i had to type which gives me zero to no pleasure at all, but how else would i be able to share with you lovely creatures of curiosity what's going on in my brain.

there's something about writing that allows me to express better, could be the smudges of wet ink or pencil, which i find unfathomably sexy. Or it could be the fact that part of you goes into the paper as your letters curve one by one to make a little dance on a flat surface making it come alive.

Bah humbug! i digress! I sit here at my light brown dining table surrounded by everything our cozy apartment has to offer, 2 fluffy cats, color coordinated furniture, a view of green and blue, and it all feels like a watermark background or a clipping from "Better Homes" magazine. For some reason the need to play music is not hovering over my head, strange.

2 minute microwave baked eggs in a mug

Who would've guessed it? Give a girl some ingredients, a kitchen under her disposal and a loooooooooooot of free time on her hand and this happens.


it's the second easiest thing i've ever had to do or even wanted to do in my life.

I used 2 eggs, lactose free milk (because life), salt, pepper, herbs and a microwave.
Would've loved to have a strip or 2 of Bacon next to this, but oh well. I ditched the toast because it's so fluffy and filling and carbs would've ruined that i feel.

How to:
Coat your mug with some non stick, fat free cooking spray. Add the eggs and a bit of milk and beat. Add your salt, pepper, herbs and anything your heart desires.
Microwave on HIGH for a minute; scramble and microwave again for another minute.

For the cheese lovers, i would assume some shredded cheese on top would be divine (or so i hear)

#ItsWorthMore

One of the very few first items i bought when i moved to Dubai was a digital camera.

I wanted to save the moment, to take as many pictures as i can, to post & share with friends and family. As time went by i noticed i was using my phone more and more, simply because it was with me all the time, and sharability factor played a huge part.

My pretty little camera sat in a drawer on its own, with your odd cables and broken chargers and honestly i think someone out there can and will make better use of it.

So as part of the #ItsWorthMore than you think challenge, I'm giving up my camera to whomever is willing to give up something as special and useful.

What is “It’s Worth More Than You Think”?

dubizzle are highlighting the importance of pre-loved items and how they may be extremely useful, nay, even vital to others. And how something that maybe dear to us, but we haven't been using, can actually change someone's life.

The campaign kicked off with this film


Nothing will make my heart happier than my camera helping someone take pictures of their life and send it back home to their family, or newlyweds take picture of their honeymoon, or someone's daughter discovers her love photography.

Follow the hashtag on Twitter #ItsWorthMore

Join the challenge and put up something of yours that you're no longer using and you may get this awesome camera of mine ^_^ <3

Movie Review: August: Osage County

If you've ever seen a movie about a dysfunctional family, throw these thoughts out the door because the Westons are here.

They will tackle each and every issue you may ever consider; drug abuse, alcoholism, betrayal and infidelity..to mention a few.

Walking into the cinema hall i was prepared to watch 'A' class outstanding acting, the kind that can and will floor you. Meryl Streep is exquisite, her portrayal of raw human emotions as well as her seamless transitions between extremes is breath taking for someone who watches movies often for the acting.

That time I tried Hypoxi

Through out the years I've tried many diets, work-outs, i even popped pills to lose weight. I'm not the fittest person out there and at some point in your life your metabolism just...stops

I heard about Hypoxi and i read more about it, but at first i must admit i was skeptical, they claimed it was fast and effortless, sounded more like magic than anything.

Hypoxi is a weight loss method that uses a special vacuum and pressure process that breaks down the fat on your problem areas, working on your cellulite and blood circulation.

To my delight Machka Beauty and Body Design on Wasl road/Dubai have the machines and offer new comers a free first trial session.
