5 lessons I learned reinventing myself as an interior stylist

Earlier this month, I celebrated two milestones - Stella + the Stars turned 3 (it's like having another baby!) and on the same day, we had our second Dubai-nniversary! Time flies is the understatement of the year and sometimes I completely forget how far I have come. I am officially on maternity leave, it's literally the final countdown, and I thought my last post before I take some time off for the new baby should be some sort of reflective one where I impart my wisdom with you all.

In the next few weeks, I will post more blogs about how and where to find the cool stuff to make it a reality.
