How Nara Changed My Life! 

I was going through a bad time in my life, feeling lost, depressed and just so blah! 

My kids were growing so fast, they started to hang out with friends all the time, Adam started going shopping with his friends when i use to buy him everything! It felt that my kids don’t need me anymore! I felt that me being around all the time is no longer important! I started letting my son know in advance if we were going out on a family lunch or dinner! Were before that never happened we always went out together and did so many activities. 

I felt like i wanted a baby! I know its mad! Why would i want a baby!! I wanted to feel needed, It sounds crazy yes! My kids still need me and will always need me but at the age they are in now they just wanna hang out with friends and do their own thing and I totally understand, no doubt i want the best for them and i know that this is so normal at this age. 

I needed something and i needed it fast! So i decided to get a small puppy, we do have an American Akita but he grow to become taller than me mashallah, I needed a dog that will always stay small in size so i can carry around, so i got a pom and called her Nara and oh how she changed my life! People around me noticed the difference in my attitude and mood they started telling me how happier and peaceful i became i smile and say Nara 😉 I always heard of animal therapy but never really understood it fully and now i so do and i highly recommend it! Now when the kids are out Nara is always around and she is the cutest thing ever.

I became a mom when I was only 16! Yes it’s crazy, it was so not your typical teenagers life! Being a mom is the hardest job ever, and being a single young mom with two kids is even harder! Don’t get me wrong, I’m truly blessed and I love being a mom and can’t ever imagine my life any other way! 

yes it is very challenging but it’s also very rewarding in so many ways, and my favorite is the unconditional LOVE.

I have two teens, Adam is 14 and Jenna is 13 both of which are completely from different worlds.
Entering teenage hood is a challenge for both kids and mother, you can never be prepared enough! 

Have you ever asked yourself how you keep it all together and still maintain your sanity?  


I have!! It’s ok to lose control every now and then. I definitely had my ugly moments where I had to leave right now and then just to cry alone! Or even those days when I felt lost about my parenting skills and just wanted to stay in bed all day! Or those times when I questioned myself if i could have done more! 

It’s ok! It’s normal and that’s simply motherhood! 
I can sum up what I have learned so far in a few 
– Educate yourself as much as you can. Read, search and ask for advice but after all that, do what you think is truly right for your kids and yourself.

– Listen to your kids no matter how crazy they may sound.

– Talk to your kids about everything and don’t ever think that it’s not important or that they are too young, or whether they won’t understand or think why should I bother talking! 

If your kids don’t want to talk or open up, then create other ways to communicate. Write letters or text or make short videos if you need to communicate about something sensitive. 

– Put yourself in their place, try to understand how they would feel about certain situations.

– Be their role model.

– Let them make their own choices.

– Let them make mistakes, they will learn.

– Encourage them at all times.

– Don’t shout because they won’t listen, they will just shut down. 

– Have family meetings. Talk about family matters, bad behavior, roles and so on

– Let them have the right to negotiate on allowance, extra pocket money, curfews and chores. 

– Always teach them ethics, morals, values and respect. Therefore, they SHINE. 

Most importantly, don’t forget your passions. Remember what excites you, Remember to nurture all parts of yourself so that you truly can ROCK at being a healthy, happy mom!

Johnson’s Pure Protect Kids Products 


Since my kids were born I always used Johnson’s products from baby wipes, shower gel, shampoos, oils, powders, lotions and the list goes on! 

I trusted them since day one of me being a mother, their products are gentle and safe and make everything better for both child and mother. 
Now my kids are teens and you might think that I stopped using Johnson’s products! Nope we still use them, yes we stopped using some but we still have them in our daily life! Like for example we never leave the house with out Johnson’s wipes! I use them all the time seriously Me and my kids can’t live with out them they are with us 24/7! 

And not to mention their baby oil and powder! 

Johnson’s has become a part of our family. 
I got a package with their new Pure Protect kids products, it contained bath wash, wipes, soap and hand wash.

I loved them!! just using the wipes and hand wash I felt safe haha no kidding! 

It’s germs protection the Johnson’s way! 

All made with nigella seed extract and honey.

Say No to germs and YES to exploring 

Cleaning with Sunshine


Laundry! We do laundry every single day! Everyday is laundry day to us especially with two teens in the house. 

We all know how hot is in Kuwait and how strong the sun is! During the summer, there are alternative ways of doing your laundry other than the usual washing machine. The purifying power of the sun will help you save money and the environment! 

Let’s talk mattresses, bed bugs and mites love the dark and moist environment of your mattress. However, these pests can’t stand sunlight, brightness and low humidity. Is it barbecue weather outside? Perfect! Stick your mattress directly in the sunlight!

 Push those mites over the edge; strip off the sheets, brush off the mattress and vacuum it well. Afterwards, put the mattress directly under the sun, typically on a balcony or terrace. After leaving your mattress to roast in the sun for 3 hours, most of the mites along with their eggs won’t feel so much at home there. This procedure should leave the mattress mite free for a good while.
Caution: Latex mattresses should not be exposed to the sun – as the UV rays can damage the material and overheating may cause warping.
Sunshine isn’t all good!!

You’ll probably want your laundry dried by sundown but take care! You might be tempted to stick your best shirt in intense sunlight, however, if your laundry dries too quickly in the sunlight, it can damage and discolour certain fabrics.
Remember not to leave your wet laundry under the glaring sun forever; just 2 hours may be enough. Once the washing is dry you should bring it in, otherwise your beloved clothes can get annoying white stripes from the washing line. Since some detergents contain optical brighteners, clothes can get yellow or green spots, simply because of too much sun!

Tip: Turn your clothes inside out to reduce the risk of any stripes.

Gotta go do laundry now haha!
