Japan Travel Diary | Tokyo & Kyoto

Konichiwa a whole 8 months later! We spent Christmas and the New Year in Japan last winter; it was one of my favorite trips to date and our first Asian trip as a family. Iya was 6 months old at the time (cutest, fattest age!!!), and I was really nervous…

Waldorf Astoria Chicago

Waldorf Astoria Hotel Chicago was so generous in hosting us, I was dreaming up the most beautiful shoots in their courtyard ahead of time but the weather simply did not allow. I kid you not, the wind was blowing me away while I was getting rained on, SIGH! Insta-dreams aside, pulling into their courtyard really creates such a sense of tranquility and LUXURY. It suddenly gets so peaceful much like a cove.

Al Madinah Travel Diary | Saudi Arabia

My husband was born and raised in Saudi Arabia. After immigrating to America in the mid 90s, he hasn’t been back until we got married and went together, twice — in 2014 and 2016! My in-laws were living in the Kingdom again so it made our visits very simple, alhamdulilah…

A Little R&R @ Caesar’s Palace | Las Vegas

My girls & I squeezed in a little getaway to Vegas a few weeks ago, after weeks of traveling for Suniya and 24/7 momming for Saira & myself, some pampering is exactly what we needed & man were we spoiled!! Caesar’s Palace hosted us in their newly renovated Palace Tower Premium Suite (+ attached Premium Studio) and not only was it luxurious… it was so huge!! A king bedroom, double queen bedroom, 4 bathrooms, walk in closets, dining room, living room, foyer.. seriously the works! We woke up to awesome views of the pool and Caesar’s Palace is conveniently located right in the middle of the strip making it easy to walk or cab it anywhere. The lazy girl in me especially loved having great nightlife right on the property because I was able to head back to the room so easily when my feet were killing at Omnia hahah grandma life! We actually didn’t leave the property as much as I thought we would at all — between the Forum Shops, restaurants, & nightlife, there was no reason to! I really do need to come back this summer to see Mariah Carey at the Colosseum, so bummed she was on hiatus during my visit!
