Are you planning on turning a yes into an I do sometimes in the future? If the answer is yes, then you should know wedding planning tips can get the best of you, at least from my experience on the few weddings I’ve helped plan (actually only one wedding). While some couples might choose to hire a wedding planner, others decide to plan their own weddings.

I know you have heard this maybe hundreds of times, but still, it would never hurt to hear about it one more time.

This is one of those “out of the box” posts, but hey, beauty is beauty regardless where we find it. With that out of the way, have you ever wondered what it takes to have a cozy home? Well, don’t wonder anymore because Medy Nahravani, founder of Design Haus Medy, is sharing with us some cozy home tips or as he calls it, how to bring that sense of “hygge” into our living spaces. “Hygge”, for those clueless like yours truly, is a Danish term whose closest translation is to be or make “cozy”. There is an undeniable art to making a space feel “hyggeligt”, but it’s not unachievable even for the most lackluster of spaces.

This is one of those posts that are kind of out of the box, but hey, as long as one person finds it useful, then I have achieved my goal. The last time I received a bouquet of roses, I ended up putting them in the trash bin after 3 days. Why? Because they started looking tired and sad and I could not stand their suffering any longer. But it seems I might have better luck next time because I have some great tips from Ebraheem Al Samadi, the rose expert and founder of Forever Rose, on how you and I can make the said roses last longer.
Some of us, especially on this side of the world, have a love-hate relationship with summer. And since the scorching season is slowly coming to an end, we don’t know if we should cry or celebrate. But while we are contemplating about our emotions, there are those who have suffered the dreaded summer weight gain, while on vacation or wherever it is that you hibernated to.
With the heat in full swing (which I really do not like), some or most of us tend to suffer from some awkward summer skin issues. Although these skin issues might not be that serious, they can still end up being annoying. But since luck is always on our side (sometimes), Prof. Dr. Elham Abd El Zaher, a Consultant for Dermatology and Venereology at Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi, is delighted to let us in on these crazy summer skin issues, as well as how to handle them, just in case we come across one or two.
