Just when you think that life cannot possibly get any any busier, it does As a busy mama, I naturally want the best for my little ones and do whatever I can to make sure they have naturally based, chemically free products in every aspect of their lives (and did I mention it needs very accessible and easy to find). Here are a few amazing organic and naturally produced products that are perfect for your precious new born, and guess what? These amazing finds can be delivered straight to your door… the best kind of shopping in my book!
Ok, so for the first time in my life I’m having to be bilingual! That’s amazing, because I’ve been shying away from speaking Arabic for years and now for the first time in my life I’ve having to accommodate my English and Arabic readers and viewers. Thank you so much to all of you!
Following my YouTube Video last week on my weight release (I prefer not to say weight loss, because if you lose something that means you are always looking for it) secrets, here’s a review of the main points on how I managed to shed 20+ kilos after having three kids in three years:
I have finally posted this recipe after many requests from many of my mommy friends! This is my homemade baby formula recipe that I developed based on many visits with pediatricians, naturopathic doctors, other experts on the topic…and plenty of research from my side. Naturally, I wanted to make sure that my baby would have everything she needs in terms of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, proteins etc before I officially made the switch over.
I am so thrilled that this all natural Thai beauty brand has made it to Dubai! My husband bought me a whole variety of the soaps and hair care products last year when they were visiting at the Beauty Expo and I immediately fell in love. Asian beauty brands have some incredibly effective recipes combing ancient remedies spices, herbs, flowers and natural oils with modern day formulas that the west hasn’t really perfected yet.
Have you ever had one of those Eureka moments where you stop and ask yourself, “What I am doing?? This doesn’t make any sense!”
That’s what happened to me a few years ago when it came to all the cleaning products that I would regularly buy from the supermarket to make sure my house was always spick and span. It would come to no surprise to most of us that the standard cleaning product brands that we have come to know and love are anything but natural, in fact all chemical based and quite hazardous to the health. If you have ever scrubbed the floor with bleach would you quickly come to know that some of your brain cells we’re fizzing out. Seriously.
I have always kept a good quality lip balm inside my handbag to make sure my lips stay moisturized and healthy while I’m on the go. I tend to keep makeup to a minimum and most days I only wear a little mascara on my eyelashes and some lip balm or gloss on my lips. Natural beauty is the way to go!
Since I had my three children with only six months in between each pregnancy, I can honestly say I have almost mastered (there is always room for improvement of course) the breastfeeding experience. With my first baby, Ria, I found the whole thing complicated, uncomfortable and fearful that I wasn’t having enough milk for her. I did my fair share of research but found little result with the advice that was available to me. By the time I gave birth to my third baby, Leelou, I was confident, experienced and was determined to make sure that I had plenty of milk for her even more “Breastfeeding Tips for a Healthy Milk Supply, Guaranteed!”
I have observed that many parents will go out of their way to find organic or natural products, foods, and environments for their children but do not always do the same for themselves! Why is that? I believe that I am the role model for my children. My behavior, actions, even words all play a big part in shaping my children’s understanding of life while building strong core values and principles. What I do for them, I do for myself…for the most part!
I have a secret potion to protect me and my family from colds and infections- I have been using it for over two years now and it really works! I consulted with a well known Ayurvedic Doctor here in Dubai and he swore by a honey spice concoction that Indians have been using for centuries- it will build one’s immunity, build strength and maintain good health. What is this mix that could be so potent and effective? I’ll give you this ancient recipe at the end of post
