​Traditional Dinner Plates!

I believe that a hint of traditional items here and there works very well in a modern minimal home… They add interest and charm to any table!

I think that these traditional plates from Pottery Barn are just perfect for this season …


…and just look at those Turkey salt and pepper shakers aren’t they just cute? They do so well with the dinner set! Don’t you think?




Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day

Madame Tussauds London museum dressed up the British royal family wax figures in ugly holiday sweaters in  honor of the “Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day,” which will take place on December 16 ….it’s a campaign that asks people to wear their favorite silly or ugly sweaters in exchange for donating to the nonprofit Save the Children.


I must admit that I don’t mind Prince Philip’s sweater…. compared to what the rest of the family ended up with, his isn’t bad at all lol!!!

Here’s the link for more info about Christmas Jumper day

The Art of Packing

Louis Vuitton has dedicated a cute video about packing. They show us how to make the most of our luggage space and more importantly how our clothes can remain in good shape once we have arrived! I mean honestly who better to show us how it’s done other than the most famous luggage luxury brand? Hope they keep making more and more of those short videos with those helpful tips!

Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2012

Hello, everyone!!!…. I’m back!….I was away for a short break to visit the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milano … It was amazing this year and we really enjoyed it very much… though I must say that we were exhausted by the end of each day because it wasn’t only huge … it was also packed every single day!!! 

Anyways its good to be back… I actually missed posting on this blog!!!….and can’t wait to post about some of the places we’ve visited during our trip!!!


Ferrari World Abu Dhabi

We took the kids to Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi the other day. Wow, I was really impressed!… It is the largest indoor theme park in the world…. and even though the weather wasn’t too bad, we were just grateful to be indoors at 2 o’clock in the afternoon!…. (I must say, however, that it was a bit chilly inside so don’t forget to get a jumper with you!!!)….The kids (even our little one) had a great time….. My personal favorite part was the Ferrari museum … I just fell in LOVE with this Ferrari 330 GTC from the 1960s… Isn’t she gorgeous?!

Traveling Tips From Collin Cowie

It has been a few days since I posted!… I am away for spring break with my family and I guess that I have taken a break from blogging as well!!!

We are in Dubai at the moment which isn’t too far away from home!…. Regardless of the distance packing was required …. and for those of you who know me (or have been reading my older posts!!!) know how obsessed I am about packing!!!

Anyways packing for this trip reminded me of a video of Collin Cowie that I found a while back and thought that his traveling tips were really helpful… he has a refined version of how we pack and I just find it inspiring!!!

PS: Please ignore the fact that it’s from a wedding program!!!


We celebrated our anniversary at At.mosphere…. The world’s highest restaurant which sits 1,350-feet above the ground floor of Dubai’s 2,717ft-high Burj Khalifa.

I must say that the food was as spectacular as the view!…I am still craving the carmalised Foie gras …. it was the best I have ever had!

For more info go to AT.MOSPHERE.

Oman Polo Team !!!

Can you see what is missing in those pictures?!!!

Ralph Lauren has made polo shirts for all the GCC countries except for Oman!… I am sure that its because we don’t have a Polo team!…. but how cute would have my son looked in an Oman polo shirt? I wasn’t going to say that I feel left out….but well….you know… I feel left out!

P.S: Can someone tell me why don’t we have a Polo team?
