It has been a while since I did a post on Pregnancy, birth and Mama-hood and what better way to kick start again than by informing mums to be about a movement I truly am passionate about.  A lot of the times when women get pregnant, it’s just tick tock tick tock till it’s time to push.  Not many take the time to educate themselves about pregnancy, birth, birthing techniques, doulas, cesarians, pain reliefs and so on.. they just listen to the Dr and take everything face value.   Read the rest of this entry »


I came across this online via Dubai Confidential and thought to give it a shot!   I am always on the look out for ID tags of all sorts for my kids whenever we go on holiday.  There is always that fear what if they get lost in a busy mall, amusement park etc. .. You may think your older child will know what to do, but when you’re on holiday we all then have new mobile phone no.s of the country were in and we can’t expect kids to memorize a handful of no.s every time we travel.  So ever since my now 10 year old was a toddler to this day.. I make him and my other 2 kids always wear ID tags.  I have use so many different types form bracelets, velcro straps etc .. It gives me that little piece of mind knowing that they have contact info on them incase of any scenario.   Read the rest of this entry »

deep blue

I love my Deep Blue Rub by doTerra.  Not only does it smell wonderful but it really helps sore muscles, joints, injuries and strains.  Last week I had a  pain on the side of my abdomen which would suddenly throb periodically throughout the day.  This lasted a couple of days and I had tried a few things but nothing worked.  I had just received my doTerra order and it was perfect timing to receive this cream.  I applied it in the afternoon and instantly started to feel relief.  I am not sure what I did to cause the pain; but by the end of the day I didn’t feel a thing.   This week  I managed to hurt my knee while working out ! ( i’m not accident prone .. honest) and again my Deep Blue Rub is my treatment of choice for the next few days.

dōTERRA®’s Deep Blue® Rub is a rich, topical cream infused with Deep Blue Soothing Blend of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils that provides targeted comfort to tired and sore joints and muscles. Formulated with a proprietary blend of natural plant extracts and other powerful ingredients, Deep Blue Rub provides a comforting sensation of cooling and warmth to problem areas. With close to 5 ml of dōTERRA’s top-selling Deep Blue essential oil blend of wintergreen, camphor, peppermint, blue tansy, German chamomile, helichrysum, and osmanthus, Deep Blue Rub is an essential addition to your bathroom cabinet, gym bag, or first aid kit. Deep Blue Rub is blended in a base of moisturizing emollients that leave your skin feeling soft, not greasy and is the choice of massage therapists and sports practitioners for applying dōTERRA’s Deep Blue essential oil blend.”

my oilsHere is just a snippet of my doTerra Oils (how do you like my little travel bag kit I made?:))

It is beyond crazy that it has taken me 2 years to write this post! There’s a few reasons why it has taken me so long. Firsly I wanted to make sure that I really did believe in the stuff.  Secondly; I fell so deeply passionately in love with the oils that with so much to say about them, I had no idea where to even begin.  I am going to make this post brief because I have decided that I will need to keep posting about these oils and the benefits of each etc. so a short post here as an intro should suffice.  For those of you who are new to the blog, I am BIG on natural home remedies.  I clean my home with natural products and my go to meds are always my homeopathic remedies and now my MUST HAVE oils.  I used to eye doTerra and wonder whether it actually lived up to the hype.  I watched the youtube videos and I read all the posts.  I believed in the concept and hoped that it could deliver it’s high quality oils as it claimed.

Here’s a post on supporting home birth! I have just had my 3rd baby (mashallah) a couple of months ago and all three were born at the hospital.  However my dream is to one day have a home birth! It is something I have always wanted but just not catered for in the middle east.  If I do get pregnant again (inshallah) hopefully then it’ll be possible or I may have to have the baby abroad.   Enjoy the video below of all the different celebrities who have had home births some as long as ten years ago!! This is not a new phenomena, yet an ancient practice.
