Walls that Talk

September 29, 2016

This wall, I pass by it almost every other day when in Beirut, and it never goes unnoticed. The colours, the size, the wonderment of when and how it was painted, but most of all that image, of a mother carrying her baby. It left me to thinking, how sometimes we are able to take things in life for granted… I wake up to the calls of my babies everyday and bring them to our bed and sing songs together.…

Contradictions and the City

September 26, 2016

  Our world is filled with contradictions, Beirut is probably the capital of this world! If I were to name a few of those contradictions particular to my city, I wouldn’t even know where to start. One which you see everyday is the clash between the torn down homes and major lack of infrastructure in one of the most expensive and unaffordable areas in the city. Some regulars, could get used to this, but people who come in rarely, are…

To My Younger Self…

June 19, 2016

I often get asked, “if you had one advice to give people or your younger self what would it be?” Even though there is definitely a lot I would like to tell the young Karen, on the top of my list would surely be “Do not worry about what other people will think or say”. Now the reason I strongly believe in this is because there are some things that I avoided doing in my life only because I was worried about what…

Is More Necessarily Better?

June 13, 2016

I find it so difficult in the world we live in to make a decision and trust it. Back in the day, it was so simple – knowledge was limited. Today, we are exposed to so much, when it comes to decision making you will find on the click of a mouse thousands of opinions, views, articles, that could facilitate or in many cases make your process much harder. It makes me wonder, is it always beneficial to know so…

Satisfaction

May 17, 2016

My mom taught me one of the most valuable lessons in life, and her words keep replaying in my head… this lesson is about satisfaction… the beauty of life when you believe in satisfaction… Before every big step in my life, my mom insisted that I worked so hard and put my utmost effort in everything I do, but she insisted mostly on recognising satisfaction… simply put, she told me “you will never be happy if you don’t feel satisfaction. It…

Post-Pregnancy- Pre-Beach Body

March 31, 2016

I’ve never been someone who likes to hit the gym or is fond of healthy food and I’ve always wished I was one of those lucky people who enjoyed it and made it their daily routine. Ironically though, I often get asked what I did to bounce back to my original weight after having the twins but truth is that 7 months later, I still haven’t. I just hide it really well. I definitely don’t look at myself in the…

What They Didn’t Mention…

March 9, 2016

Hey beautiful readers! Today I am sharing something with you which I kind of wish someone would had shared with me before I became a mama. They all said, it would be beautiful but tiring, they all said I would miss sleep and alone time but that the little angels would be worth every sleepless night… and they were all right. However, no one mentioned to me what I find to be the most difficult part about motherhood… The constant GUILT.…

From Baby to Boy…

November 22, 2015

I literally feel like I gave birth to my son Georgie yesterday, and now I am already looking at nurseries to enroll him in… How did that happen? “Before you know it your baby will become a boy”, I’ve heard that before, and now I know what they meant. In today’s post, I will be sharing with you some of my feelings as it hits me that my baby is growing up. Georgie showed us, younger than I expected, that…
