Long time no see

Salams everyone!

Hope you are keeping well. It has been a while since I was able to update you guys.

Now if you follow me on Instagram (@nuhasgram) you will know I have been away. I got the chance to finally visit my best friend studying in Hungary. It had been long time coming Allhamdulillah.

And right after that it was Easter so we took that chance to meet up with my family in UK and boy was that an amazing vacation together too Allhamdulillah.

Might share more on that with you later, but for now here’s a picture from this passed weekend.

Outfit details: Abaya from Podur, handbag from Prada, shoes from Steve Madden and hijab from Sharjah central souk.

ID design 2018 catalogue launch

Salaams everyone!

Hope you are keeping well.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending ID Designs 2018 catalogue launch at Mall of Emirates. It was a beautiful event and I had the pleasure of meeting some amazing people.

ID design draws inspiration from Scandinavian design – simplicity and fine lines. I can’t deny that brings a certain pride being from Norway 😇

Their new pieces are intended to make your home flourish and bloom.

And they certainly got you covered in that area no matter your style.

Some of my favorite pieces though has to be their decor pieces. They are quirky and they are sleek. I get the combo of being “in bloom” while inspired by Scandinavian design. I wish I could take them all home, but I did get some pictures to share with you.

Check out their new catalogue and latest pieces at one of their showrooms in MOE or Mirdiff city center.

ALL BLACK 🖤

Salaams everyone,

Have you guys seen all the hype around the black ice cream? It has been popping up all over social media and the hype is real.

Now the hype is ice cream made of charcoal. But I had the pleasure of trying an Oreo version of black ice cream. If I am not mistaken that is usually a mix of charcoal and Oreo. Charcoal for colour and Oreo for flavor.

It was delicious. So smooth and creamy! You know how sometimes when you have something Oreo flavored you can get the grittyness of the cookies. This was not like that. Super smooth and creamy. I would definitely recommend to check it out. I got mine from black cab coffee (sister company to my much loved depresso coffee). They have pop up stalls all over Dubai inc La Met and CityWalk.

Could not help myself, it was so delicious! 💁🏽‍♀️

The Dubai Frame

Salaams everyone!

Yesterday I was finally able to check out the Dubai Frame. If you live in Dubai you know what I am talking about, if not you might be slightly confused.

It is basically this huge landmark they opened this January. It has been in the works for some time and it is so huge you can spot it miles away.

As you can see it is a giant gold frame. The height of the team is between the height of The Eiffel Tower and The Statue of Liberty.

When you go to the top you will be able to clearly see the difference between Old Dubai and New Dubai. And it is a breathtaking sight from each side of the frame, subhanallah.

If you ever visit Dubai you should check out the Dubai Frame. For sure #Recommended.

Dubai is off to a good start with a whole full day of rain showers.

This takes me back to Norway…where it rains almost every other day. Atleast in the city I am from. I must say though..I do not miss it. However, I am grateful for the rain. In a country as dry as UAE this is much needed, and gives a sort of “fresh breath of air”

Indulgence

Sometimes we can all treat ourselves to a little something, specially after some long and tiring days. 

One go to is some soft serve ice cream from Godiva. 


A pampered mouthwatering feeling. Honestly speaking this ice cream is not a must have what so ever – just pure indulgence. Something we all deserve every now and then. 

My go to is the duo – a combo of vanilla and dark chocolate. You can also have single flavor, whichever you prefer. The dark chocolate is super rich, so for me personally I need the mix of two. A balance. 
Now it is back to work and routine for another couple days. Have a good one! 💕

H A L L O W E E N overload

Hey guys!

Hope you are all keeping well ☺️

Been a while since I last posted something. Things has got super hectic and focus just had to be elsewhere. 

We did however manage to try out the famous BostonLand cafe here in Dubai last weekend.


Super cute and hip place. I will be honest though the Halloween was a bit too much. Not just for anything, this cafe got a lot going on already..and the Halloween decor just made it look like a bit of a mess if I am going to be honest. 


Get what I mean? And this was just one side (the calmer side) of the cafe. 

And the food was “meh”. Very average and way too pricey. I had the famous tuna melt and hubby had the garlic and cheese melt – we could not get any garlic flavor..so not sure if they forgot that in our sandwich or not. The tuna melt was good, but nothing I got vowed about and not one of those “if ever I want tuna sandwich this is the place”

The coffee was decent, again very average – but also nothing to complain about. It was better than the rest of the order at least 💁🏽


The one time the Halloween decor worked to my favour. 

However, I must share – the location on the outside was absolutely stunning. And in these winter days beautiful and relaxing to sit outside and enjoy. 


I am glad we tried BostonLane, not a bad place. But I did expect a bit more for the hype it had got. And we wont be rushing back any time soon. 

The Acai Spot

Just have to share this place with you all as this very quickly has become a favourite spot for us. Located in Port Saeed, Deira you will find this beautiful spot by the name The Acai Spot. 



If you are a health food/superfood lover, or you like keeping up with trends and/or exploring different places – this is one for you. 

The location is so soo pretty as you can see. So relaxed and chilled, yet vibrant and colourful. I have fallen in love😍

Let’s not forget the food! Super simple and super Yum! I apologize for my lack in words to describe, but honestly you just have to try it for yourself. 

I love that I can come out from this place feeling content and satisfied without any guilt. 


(Yes, even the croissant is wholewheat).


(The loved one with extra date toppings)

The flavours are just so pure and hit all the right tastebuds. 

On the picture you will see «the loved one» which is an acai Fruit mix (one of their best sellers – and for good reason) with extra date topping, the croissant sandwich and «the peach & ginger ice tea».

All of it we recommend, pluss some. The whole menu calls out to you. 

Wether you live in Dubai or happen to visit Dubai I do recommend you check this place out 👌🏽

Away, but not away

Salaams my loves! Hope you are all keeping well. 

We are already at a new week, why does time fly like this?!

This weekend was meant to chill and we spontaniously decided to spend a night away from our apartment and normal daily surroundings. But at the same time we did not want to go too far or anywhere that required too much driving…as that would just make us more tired. 

Something about working life/adulthood means weekends are meant for relaxing. Anyone remember those days where weekend meant «Let’s go out and do something»/run around/party and what not?!😂 #WorkingLife

We landed at Sheraton Dubai Creek. Though hubby was still caught up with work it truly was nice to spend it a hotel where no cleaning is required and we wake up to one of the most beautiful views. 


So pretty mashallah 😍

We took an evening stroll along Dubai Creek, had lovely Italian food at Oregano (one of our staple Italian go to places). However, a small side note: avoid ordering the smoked aubergine ravioli..yes, even if you love aubergine like me. I know it is a love or leave it type of veggie. And for me I love it, have never had a bad experience with it e-v-e-r. But this one was not good.. other than that we love the food at this place and keep going back.


In addition we had their cheesy garlicbread (A+), the tuna in pesto gnocchi (A++).

The bread on the side is complimentary with the order and generally speaking has always been good and somewhat filled us up before dinner has arrived. So be aware of that 😜

It has been an amazing an beautiful weekend. Though it was just a small drive from home it honestly felt like a mini vacation and the weekend flew by a lot sooner than we would like. Allhamdulillah though, not complaining what-so-ever!
