Make You Smile

Hai everyone!

This post is another Weekly Photo Challenge post, and this week’s topic was Smile.

For this week’s challenge, point your camera at something or someone that puts a smile on our face (or just show a smiling face).

So I put this picture of my dog in a pool because he looks so happy like he’s smiling. And it definitely puts a smile on my face, so I like to think of this as a 2-in-1.

ALSO I decided to put a little chatty type section underneath my WPC posts just because there’s not much to it and I think it would be more fun!

This week wasn’t the best because I knew it was the last week of spring break, and that means I’m going to have to start studying for my exams 😭 But the good thing is that I started practising my flat lays and I realized that I’m not as bad as I thought I was.

I will be using my flat lays in future posts and also there will be some behind-the-scenes and of course, the final image of my flat lays on my <<Instagram>> if you would like to check that out!

Aaaand I started watching Stranger Things too, which is SO FLIPPING GOOD. Mostly because I love mystery but aaaaah.

How would you rate your week out of ten? 

Buddy the Pug

This week’s photo challenge topic is ‘Beloved’.                                                                              So obviously, I used a picture of my dog I found from a while ago.

His name is Buddy and he is a Pug. He is also just about the cutest thing ever but I’m pretty sure you got that figured out by now 😋 We’ve had Buddy for just a few years but he’s part of our family and he does some very hilarious and stupid things which make us all laugh.Beloved WPC

He does things like:

Roll in our rangoli (as seen above)                                                                                                    Roll on carpets                                                                                                                                Bark at balloons and cherries

The list could go on for a while so I’m afraid that’s the end!

Who else is excited that Zoella’s making her blog daily again?

The Silent Streets of Chamonix

A short while ago I travelled to France and visited a little town – which was on a mountain- called Chamonix.

When we just reached for the first time, we were roaming around in a car and when we stopped to get out for a moment and feel the cold, we were on this beautiful street with snow covering it like a blanket. You could see a little group of people in the corner but there was literally not a sound. It was the quietest and most peaceful place ever.

Silence WPC

Looking at this picture makes me remember to pause once in a while and actually take in planet Earth because it’s much better than anything we can make or imagine. Also, Earth has snow, I don’t think any other place would have snow.

I rest my case.

Which is the most beautiful country you’ve ever been to?

The Liebster Award

I have recently been nominated for the Liebster Award 2018 by my best friend Noelle ( So thank you soooo much! So I thought I could (kinda) start off 2018 with a few questions which will help you get to know me a bit better ❤️

For those of you who don’t know what the Liebster award is, it’s an award for new bloggers with less than 200 followers.  Here are the rules-

1→ Acknowledge the blogger that has nominated you.

2→ Answer the 11 questions that the nominator has asked you.

3→ Nominate 11 more bloggers (with less than 200 followers).

4→ Ask them 11 questions.

5→ Let them know you have nominated them.

Now let’s get going!

  1. Are you enjoying blogging?

Yes, I am.

2. If you were stranded on an island, which five things would you like to take with you?

I would take- a ginormous bag of food and drinks, my phone, a writing set (notebook and pen), a tent, a sleeping bag.

3. Favourite movie and why?

Pitch Perfect 3 because it’s really funny, I love the characters, and I love singing so… go watch it if you haven’t already!

My best friends- ❤️❤️❤️ you know why.

7. Favourite subject and why?

Study hall because I get to do anything and finish homework so I don’t have to do it at home. Yes, it’s a lesson. When people sign up for their mother tongue (don’t ask), people who don’t sign up basically get a free lesson. This is the time I use to chat with Noelle.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

Aaaas you may know from a previous post, I have decided to try out the ‘Weekly Photo Challenge’. Seems pretty interesting so, yeah!

This week’s topic: GROWTH


This photo links to growth for me because there are ideas growing, sprouting and becoming bigger and better. Also, the pictures in the background add a touch of people and nature growing because it’s as the time passes by. It may be a weird interpretation of the topic, but hey, that’s me !


Have you started anything new this year?

Weekly Photo Challenge: 2017 Favourites

Hey people!

First of all, I would like to apologize for not completing Blogmas. I just got super tired of it and I couldn’t think of any more interesting post ideas; and if you guys didn’t enjoy my posts, there was literally no point posting them. I literally salute the people who can complete the full blogmas, salute!

Now I’m going to get to the interesting part, this post. I accidentally – like anyone’s going to believe accidentally – clicked a few buttons and found out about the ‘Weekly Photo Challenge‘. I don’t 100% understand it yet but I think it’s basically: there will be a photo prompt every week and all you need to do is write a pingback-including the topic, the picture and why you chose that picture.     If you actually get it, purLEAse explain it to me down in the comments.

Topic: 2017 Favourites

To celebrate the end of the year, share the most meaningful photo you’ve taken in 2017.

This may be a very weird option for some people but I really love it because everyone would focus on a different part of this photo even though there is not much in it. Basically, perspective. I also love it because there was actually a great mood in the atmosphere at the time ( rain in Dubai is usually very rare so you could say that people were literally partying).

If you like photography then I suggest we do this together! It will be loads of fun, I guess.

What challenges have you taken on in 2017?

Starbucks-Like Hot Chocolate



As you may know from my last post, my friend Noelle came over for a week, and she doesn’t live in Dubai.

We had found a recipe for Starbucks hot chocolate ages ago and now we couldn’t find it so we tried improvising and it turned out really well. Even if you don’t have hot chocolate powder/mix. Here’s the recipe:

Starbucks Hot Chocolate


Makes: 2 | Total Time: 3-5 mins | Difficulty: Vv Easy

You Will Need:
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Add cocoa, sugar and water into a microwave-safe bowl and heat for about seconds or until it’s warm. Mix well to create a good syrup-like consistency with no lumps. Add milk and vanilla and stir well.
  2. Heat in the microwave for approximately 60 seconds or until hot.
  3. Now you can enjoy your delicious Starbucks-like hot chocolate anytime.

Eating at Bianca Mozzarella & Co


DSC01251.JPGBuratta in a Jar

Blogmas 12


This weekend my BFFL came for a visit ( ) and we had dinner at Bianca Mozzarella & Co. and the food was super delicious.

My favourite dish was ‘Penna Alla Siciliano’, it’s a dish which has penne, tomato sauce, mozzarella and eggplant. We also ordered a ‘Burrata in a Jar’ which was absolutely scrumptious, there was so much cheese and some delicious tomatoes and leaves. Leaves? Probably not so delicious, but, give them a chance.

My least favourite dish was the pizza, which was supposed to have mushrooms and truffle but there was literally no truffle on the pizza, which was quite disappointing.

Noelle was suddenly addicted to my camera so she took loads of pictures of me, the ones of the food were taken by me though.


What’s your favourite Italian dish?

I’ve seen sooo many of these kinds of posts all over … blogs and I decided to give it a try myself. I am well aware that this post and the next post are not really related to Christmas but I have a great recipe coming up!
