DIY: Painted vase

My husband brought me really pretty long stemmed gerbera flowers for valentine. I had no long vase to put them in and didn't want to cut the stem either. That led me to a quick DIY. I had an empty olive oil bottle at hand. I scrubbed away the sticker on it, washed and dried it. Then spray painted it, it was done and dried in 2 hours and voila we had a lovely white flower vase especially for gerbera's.

Hope you like it :)

Travel: Pakistan

Me, husband and my son went to  Pakistan to meet our family and to spend our vacations there. I must say i loved being here, there is no place like Pakistan no matter where i go in the world. It was my sons first visit to Pakistan meeting his fathers side of the family. His grandmother was overwhelmed to meet her grandson.

We ate out everyday, a thing we miss being in a foreign country with less Halal restaurants.  We tried all the new and old restaurants we could. KFC, MiKong have lowered their food quality. Rahat bakers aka Tehzeeb bakers was upto the mark as always with slightly higher prices, but i really enjoyed their pizza and chocolate mousse. Also loved the cafe Chaye Kahan in Islamabad and Monal in Peer Sohawa.  I shouldn't really complain that i've gained all this weight.

We went to Lahore for a few days. But mostly stayed in Rawalpindi. I did a lot of shopping, mostly dresses and jewellery. Bought some stuff for home like bed sheets, curtains, and some kitchen stuff.

All in all it was a  wonderful trip with lots of good memories.

♥♥ Spread the love ♥♥

Happy valentine's day to all. Although i dont really celebrate it. I believe everyday is a day for love, we cant restrict ourselves to a single day to show it. But it doesnt hurt to express our feelings on this day.

Husby surprised me with beautiful flowers. So sweet of him to be so thoughtful ♥

5 Random things about me!

I'm going to jot some random things about me, more for myself than anyone. We know what and who we are, but writing them down just makes a little bit more sense and helps us understand who we reallllly are.

1. I have a short memory. I tend to forget certain things and details, which is rather embarrassing at times.
2. I am a lazy ass. I want to do lots of things during the day, but cant manage to do much. Then i put off it for tomorrow and obviously cant finish it up.
3. I sometimes blurt things out, things i shouldn't say.
4. Public speaking is one of my fears. Not that i have never spoken to a relatively bigger audience, but i would rather not do it.
5. I'm craving for a tight hug from my little one :)

Here they are. Just some random facts. Might as well start a series on it.
