MY FRIEND YASMINE

A couple of years ago, I decided I needed an inspiring girl gang; a lot of my friends had moved away and I was left with a gaping hole in my life when it came to having girl-friends who I could look up to and talk to about adult things, like what we want to be when we grow up. Since then, I’ve met so many incredible women (in the food world and out of it) who have made me a better person, and who have inspired me with their passion and creativity. Yasmine is one of those people, and here are some of the [yummy] reasons I adore her:

yasmine {she’s a beautiful person, inside and out}

yasmine's beetroot hummus and avo bites {she’s incredibly talented and puts her heart into everything she does}

nibbles that sparkle {she throws the best parties and her food is magical–it even sparkles!}

yasmine's chocolate hummus {she’ll make you the best snack when you’re on the go}

hummus {she makes the BEST chocolate hummus! (yes, you read that right!)}

You can follow Yasmine here on Instagram for healthy and drool-worthy food inspo (you’ll thank me later, I promise).

BITS & PIECES | 27.04.16

This week was one of the busiest weeks I’ve had this year. I had work projects due right, left, and center, and I’ve been nursing a melancholy heart after my trip to Sri Lanka (I was so sad to come back). Despite all of the busy-ness—a welcome distraction, for which I am grateful— I managed to carve out a few quiet moments for myself to relax and recuperate. I’ve got a lot on this weekend and over the coming week, and then I’ll be switching gears into summer mode and getting ready to tak ... Read More

PEA SMASH BRUSCHETTE + NEW BEGINNINGS

I love Spring. And I love it for the most clichéd of reasons: because it signals a new beginning, a clean slate, a fresh start. I’m not one for new years’ resolutions (you can decide to make a change any day of the year), but Spring Equinox, for me, is when I always feel the most alive (it helps that the weather in Dubai in the Spring is spectacular: blue skies and light breezes and sharp edges), and when change seems to make its way—slowly but surely— into my life. This Spring, I went back to Sri Lanka for ten day ... Read More

BITS & PIECES | 01.03.16

It’s been a manic month since I came back from holiday, but I couldn’t be more grateful for the busy-ness. It’s helped me focus on the things I really care about, and also made me realise there’s a few things I’ve been neglecting. My birthday a couple of weeks ago saw me turn the big three-oh(!), and while it was a little bit scary, I’m enjoying being exactly where I am in life. Here are five moments captured over the past week that I’m so grateful for. I hope you ... Read More
