A big welcome to Sweet Life!  I have always had a passion for decorating and theming special occasions and I enjoy dreaming up all these wonderful ideas.

How cute is this `diaper cake`?  The cutest part of it all, is that it was made for a soon-to-be dad who was waiting for the arrival of his little bundle.  Ana from Nice Ribbon Atelier explained how it had been ordered by his work colleagues as a gift as they wanted to give him something…

There is nothing more exciting than finding a beautiful home to photograph and share on `i am captivated`.  My aim is to inspire and motivate expats who move to Dubai to make this city their home.  It is so important for me to come home to a place that is comfortable, peaceful and most importantly…

You may remember these images from our Valentine`s Shoot last week and today I thought I would share the recipe with you to try this weekend.  Pizza has to be one of my favourite meals, especially one with lots of basil, rocket, a delicious tomato paste and parmesan cheese.

Oh my goodness, this post makes me jump for joy and makes my creative senses come to life. Friday is Valentine`s Day…a whole day dedicated to love and romance.  I am a true romantic at heart and although this day has become very commercialised, it is a special reminder to spoil the person you love…

A multi cultural love story…

The fascinating thing about Dubai is the mix of so many unique cultures.  I love meeting new people and it is always very interesting to find out where they are from and to hear a little bit about their home countries.   So it comes as no surprise that a couple getting married in this…
