Laced in Utrecht

Utrecht

For the second part of my Holland trip series, I got to visit a cute town called Utrecht. This city is mostly known for being a student-based city, with more than 20,000 students. It’s surrounded by colorful buildings, flowers, kind people, and amazing food. We took a walk around the center, exploring the different parts […]

Outside the Box

When I was a little girl, my mother told me that it’s better to be a black sheep in the middle of all the white. It’s an old Russian saying that is interpreted around the world. At that time, I didn’t quite understand, but now as I’m getting older I acknowledge it’s meaning. It’s cheesy, […]

My first stop this summer is Brussels, the capital of Belgium. Since my grandparents live here, my family and I try to pay a visit at least once a year. It’s such a beautiful city, so green yet very cold compared to Abu Dhabi. This past week hasn’t been warmer than 16 degrees, which is a […]

Art within a Photograph

One of my dear friends came up to me with a very interesting project idea. She wanted me to be her model for a photography project she was doing that mixes art and photography together.

How to Deal With a Bad Hair Day

Sometimes us busy girls have so much to do that our hair is the last thing on our mind. We might not have time to jump into the shower or wait for the straightener to turn on when we’re in a rush. I know I’m guilty of that, especially when my alarm clock doesn’t end […]
