Expert Speaker at ZomatoCon | Who Me?

When I was asked to speak as an expert blogger at the first ever Blogger's Conference that happened at Zomato, many questions came into my mind: "Am I an expert? What do I have to speak about? I still have so much to learn! There are so many other bloggers who do a great job! I am not yet there!" Little did I know that there were a lot of people out there who wanted to hear me speak. I never realized this - having made Creativity with Kay - A brand with a voice more than a face, I never thought that there were people out there who wanted to hear my story. As days came closer to the

Give Yourself the Gift of Beautiful Skin | Foreo

Everyone's been going about sharing their gift guides for the month, and then I thought of this. Who wouldn't love gifting themselves beautiful skin to live in. So, here's what it's all about. I got my hands on a wonder product from Foreo - the Luna Mini 2. Obviously, without trying it myself I couldn't be believing anything that normally comes in the advertising campaigns of products. But, this one really does work wonders. A photo posted by Qatar Lifestyle Blogger

An Easy and Quick Recipe | Madras Fish Curry

I happened to attend a cooking session at Doha Gymkhana where the Executive Chef, Aditya Raj gave us a demo of a very quick, and delicious dish. The recipe was passed out to the attendees in hand outs, and in this day and age, handouts are quick to be lost. I thought to myself maybe I should have this up on the digital world, and what better place than my blog to save it on. Not only myself, but any of you could use it too whenever you'd like.

How to Brew that Perfect Cup of Tea | Jing

I am not that person who cannot live without tea or coffee. I enjoy both of them from time to time. However, learning about their growth, types, and everything that has to brewing that perfect cup, I wouldn't pass it by just like that. Having been to the world's highest tea plantation just last month, and a year ago travelling through as many tea plantation, and all experiences - tea I could while in Sri Lanka, I was nothing but delighted when an invite for a tea masterclass came in - Why

The Beacon of Knowledge and Light | An Exhibition

Yesterday I got the chance to visit The Beacon of Knowledge and Light put together by HBKU at QFIS. The Beacon of Knowledge and Light is an exhibition that focuses on the many aspects of Islam, and the Qur'an. From botany to astronomy, and architecture, there is quite a lot you can discover at this exhibition. The event also runs today from 1:00 pm - 9:00 pm. It's a great place to take the kids to as well andΒ is quite informative for the adults as well. Some of the activities that are part

Sky High Blue Waters & Dwarfed City Views | A Staycation

Amidst the hectic month that December was for me, Intercontinental Doha The City came upto me with a staycation idea to get away from the pressures of all the daunting tasks, and deadlines that were looming over me before I travelled. I accepted it right away without even thinking that this would mean more deadlines to meet. :D The idea of a staycation didn't sound bad at all. I have been aiming to cover all kinds of Halal based experiences you can have while in Qatar, and when abroad through

What is the Secret to Beautiful Makeup?

No, I am not going to be giving any makeup lessons here! I ain't no makeup artist! Don't stress over the title too much. I am not revealing any kind of secrets here at all. Other than the fact, that when I walked out of 2016, Nivea got in touch with me to review their latest product launched in the Middle Eastern Market. The best part about it for me was that the first piece in Qatar was given to me. I think that is a big deal! Why would a lady whose face is seldom seen in public be reviewing

Dining at The Marina

Gentle breeze, amazing views, and being together with family (not just me, and Mr. M - but extended family like aunt, cousins, etc) - it doesn't always work out. Well, it happened this time around when I was in Dubai for a short weekend. This was when I was in Dubai last month to review the Aspen Ski Chalet at Kempinski Dubai which I have saved for another post. Now I was on a short trip, and surely I couldn't be going all over the places to meet family. So, we decided to have a meal

Oh Doha! When you are this pretty😍, you take my breath away!
What's the one place that you could go and never get bored of its view ?
.
.
The Corniche is one such place for me. It blends the country's heritage with modernization in the most unique way, the love for this country is not enough to put in words for me.

How do sunsets inspire you? 
There is never a sunset which cannot be appreciated.  There is always something in a person that you can appreciate. 
I cannot tell you how beautiful winter sunsets in Doha are πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒ…πŸŒ…
The day I went to Banana Island was one of the only days last week where there wasn't a single cloud in the sky.☁️☁️☁️☁️☁️
The sunset was so beautiful for once I thought I was elsewhere but this was here in Qatar πŸ’œπŸ’œ @bananaislandresort

Also, I really wanted to share this message that came my way today "I asked an Elderly Gentleman - *Tell Me Sir, in Which Field could I Make a Great Career?* He said with a smile - *Be a Good Human Being, there is a Huge Opportunity in this Area and with Very Little Competition!"* .

The Museum of Islamic Arts is one of the most photographed buildings in Qatar. 
Have you taken a picture of it? 
If not, what has been a famous landmark that you have taken a pic of?

What is your fave flower? And why?
.
.
"Be like a flower which perfumes the hand that crushes it"
I remember back in my school day when I was around 8 or 9 years old. I looked up to everyone possible with respect and admiration. It was around then that our school principal was leaving the school. πŸŽ’ Everyone was trying to get 'his autograph' in pretty papers and I didnt have any so I just gave my book and this was the line he wrote for me. I was pretty impressed with it then and am still pretty impressed with the line. "It's something I would keep wanting to tell myself every now and then!" 🌸🌸🌸
This flower though am not sure of what its name is, I took a pic of it when I was exploring Bodimettu with @thesholacrown
πŸŽ“
It was such a privelege to have been the first guest of the hotel. 
Having worked with hotels in the Middle East, and also having been approached by the Philippines, this was a first for me outside the region that I could make it to. 🌍
A place so beautiful, nature untouched, and so much to learn and see. 🚁
Those are the kind of places I'd want to be exploring time and time again
πŸ“
Planning a visit to India post April, make sure to add in The Shola Crown into your schedule. .

Finally went and checked out the @magical_festival_village at @kataraqatar and here's what I think about it
.
.
.
For a fair, the food prices in stalls could go a tad bit lower.🍴
There are some outlet stores where you can get some amazing clothes , footwear for amazing pricesπŸ‘ πŸ‘“
It's a great place to go as a family πŸ‘ͺ
And, there are a lot of instagrammable spotsπŸ“·

Have you been there? If so what do you think?
Do you love checking out local fairs? Have you found great bargains at fairs?

Do you enjoy attending cooking lessons wherever you go? 🍜🍜
.
.
.
It teaches you a lot about a place. There's so much just a meal can teach you. .

A moment from the cooking lesson @dohagymkhana where the chef demonstrated how to make Madras Fish Curry. It was finger lickin' good!
Do you want the recipe? If so let me know

"And I just think that if you believe in something and you want it so much and you're not hurting anyone else, you have to go for it. Which sometimes means taking a risk, even if it's scary. But the thing you want most to happen doesn't stand a chance unless you give it one." - Susane Colasanti
