As promised, here are 6 things we’ve grown to love love for Noura over these past 6 months! Some of the items have been linked to my Amazon storefront for easy access in case you’re on the hunt for yourself or wanting to gift a new mama or baba! xoxo 6 things we love for Nunu: 1. BioGaia Probiotic Vitamin D Drops – I wish I had tried these a lot sooner than I did! If you don’t have them, check with your doctor or paediatrician beforehand but I promise they will help so much especially if you have a colic baby! 2. Bouncer – we use this every single day without fail. It’s part of our morning routine where she sits and watches as I make breakfast, or any other meal tbh. She bounces in it while I shower, while I do laundry, while her baba works and he has to watch her etc etc etc. we love it! 3. Frida Baby chest balm – any time we hear the slightest congestion, this goes on at night and we feel it makes a difference in her breathing a little clearer the next morning. 4. Breast Pump – ufft. I… View Post

I can’t believe how fast time has actually flown by! 6 of the most intense, emotionally overwhelming, no-idea-what I’m doing months I’ve ever experienced, yet now it literally feels as though I blinked and we’re here. I half-heartedly believed everyone during that first month when they said it got better and easier lol the first milestone to reach was the 6 week mark. “it gets better at 6 weeks, then you’re in the clear. Your body heals and you build a routine”, then it was the 3 month mark, “isn’t it so much better now?!” and now the 6 month mark “that’s it, she’s grown. It’s not that bad is it?!” ufft. It’s definitely been a lot, a lot of the best and a lot of the not-so-best, but I wouldn’t change it for the world alhamdulillah! She has quickly taken over our hearts and our lives and we are so so in love with her xxx literally last night we both sat staring at her as she fell asleep on my chest and just talking about how scary it is to be a parent because your heart is literally beating outside your chest and you never ever want this… View Post

A few weeks ago we headed up to Prince Edward County, someplace neither of us have ever been! I’ve always seen everyone posting about how gorgeous it is and the quaint unique stays available in the County so wanted to see what all the hype was about. (the hype is in fact very real lol) We checked into the Drake Motor Inn, a nostalgic nod to the classic roadside motel – without the musty old-school motel vibes you’re thinking about lol think updated rooms, modern twists and amenities, keyless digital entry, and ‘woof’ beds! This is probably one of the first places I’ve come across who encourage bringing your furry friend along and provide everything they also need for a comfortable stay! You’re also probably wondering if the Motor Inn has any affiliation with The Drake Hotel in Toronto, and the answer is yes! Think of it as a sister property to The Drake Hotel located in Toronto, and the Drake Devonshire in Wellington (Prince Edward County). The Drake Motor Inn is actually located just up the road from the lakefront Drake Devonshire which allows you to enjoy and explore both properties – the restaurant and bar is actually located… View Post

Trying our hand at putting this together again so fingers crossed it doesn’t get deleted! To be honest I didn’t think I would need to ‘pack’ a hospital bag, just take somewhat of an overnight bag and the hospital would take care of the rest lol but as I neared my due date and kinda sorta became consumed with ‘research’ on the internet lol I reckoned there was no harm in being a little prepared and in hindsight I’m glad I did so! Before we get into the list, yes it’s a little overwhelming, especially if it’s your first time giving birth, always always keep in mind that things might not always go to plan and that’s okay! As long as mama and baby are healthy and safe, that’s literally the end goal for everyone xxx this list is also catered to a ‘normal’ /vaginal delivery only because it’s what we prepared for and did so please keep that in mind! Most of what’s on this list is also linked to my Amazon storefront so you can find everything easily in one place! My sister made me a gift basket with most of these for my baby shower which I… View Post

Hi hello salaam! LONG time no see, hear, write, all of the above! I don’t remember what our last blog post was about let alone when I wrote it, but what I do know is a lot has changed since then! Your girl got married, moved back home, stopped traveling because of covid and because of #responsibilities (sigh), and most recently just gave birth! – you’re basically all caught up now lol I have many feels about many of those life changes and could ramble for ages on them, but this post has a purpose which I promised myself I would not sway from. This post is all about baby registry tips, must-haves, whatever you want to call it, but all things baby prep! Before I hit you up with this slightly comprehensive list, I do want to say that it is massively overwhelming if you’re having your first baby and don’t know where to start in terms of schtuff. There is SO much out there and the world makes you feel like you need it all but you really don’t (even though your mama already told you this, listen to her lol she’s right!) I remember walking into Buybuy… View Post
