Books I’ve recently read and LOVED

  • Puddin’ by Julie Murphy
  • The Forgotten daughter by Renita D’ Silva
  • We are displaced by Malala Yousafi
  • East of India by Erica Brown
  • The lost daughter of India by Sharon Maas
  • A little bit obsessed with novels with a strong heroine who overcomes adversity and I’m a little obsessed with Middle Eastern culture.. India is somewhere I long to experience although, it isn’t very wheelchair friendly. 😔
  • How to dress with a vintage Vibe

    When dressing vintage, remember to add modern twists so you don’t look too dated. Pastel and floral are a must especially, if you want the feminine look. Remember that collecting pieces can be expensive so be prepared save up!
