Hey Sand Stars,

Here’s wishing you many abundant blessings, prosperity and great health in 2018.

As I announced on social media last year, I will be making the blog a more of a communal space, where I want women to share anything from their experiences to recipes, ideas…you name it!

I’ve had many inquiries for articles, so I’m looking forward to sharing them soon.

I’m incredibly blessed and grateful to be surrounded by people who are so rich in life experiences and- as a family -we encourage each other to learn from our mistakes, share in our rewards and enjoy whatever lessons life teaches us. My aim is to create this kind of family on The Maestro Memoirs; a sense of unity amongst the sisterhood.

As we start 2018, let’s remember a few key things:

  1. Making mistakes is integral to our growth.
  2. Always be true to yourself and don’t be swayed by society’s needs to fit into a box.
  3. Life is full of rules and boundaries and many of them should be respected- whilst you are always mindful of being authentic, this doesn’t mean you cross the lines of morality or create a chasm in your value system be it religious, etc.
  4. Laugh. A LOT. Have a sense of humour about yourself.
  5. Social media has its place, but it’s not real-life. Be careful of how you judge another based on their platforms.

Looking forward to sharing words by some amazing women, soon!

Hi Sand Stars!

Life is so incredibly busy and hectic recently and I’ve been needing to centre myself and draw myself back to the present many times. One unique way I have recently been able to consciously bring myself to the present is with Obaku Watches and Hour Choice.

With a series of Obaku timepieces, I’ve been able to explore many aspects of ‘my zen’, including music (the watches even inspired a piece of music), meditative reflection, nature, poetry and the sea.

The sleek pieces are made with quality materials, in classic colours and styles that will carry from season to season. My favorites are the dark blue tones and mother-of-pearl insets.

The beautiful watches (and Obaku’s focus on zen philosophy) has been integral in bringing me much contentment during this hectic time. See just some of the beautiful images encapturing ‘my zen’ below. To purchase the watches, check out Hour Choice on Instagram and Rivoli Shop:

Hey Sand Stars,

Happy New Year! May 2016 be YOUR year; full of blessings and happiness 🙂

2015 was an insanely busy year and I look forward to sharing lots of cool music and other news with you soon.

In the meanwhile, I wanted to ask if anyone else is as excited as I am for awards season?! I’m a red-carpet-fashion lover and seriously looking forward to seeing what the ladies (and dapper gents) wear for the Golden Globes, SAGs and Oscars this year.

Because of the nature of my work and the need to look glam, I’m always looking to awards season for inspiration for my gigs. I love Meher & Riddhima for their feminine, elegant designs (they are a local, Dubai-based duo).

International designers I love wearing include Zuhair Murad, but there’s no need to stick to high-end designers to looking like a star. Many high-street stores stock stunning gowns and jumpsuits; the key is to check the fabric of the garment (make sure it’s of good and lasting quality) and the tailoring: the dress needs to fit well. It may even be an idea to get something custom-made, but- again -select strong, quality fabric that won’t crease easily and will fit you like a glove!

I look forward to seeing you all dress like superstars 😉 Tag me on Instagram.

Dear Sand Stars

Hello and welcome to my diary!

I thought it would be wonderful to create an outlet where I could give you glimpses of my career and my favourites in the beauty, fashion and food world (we all know I’m a foodie!!) I’m passionate about life and people, so you may find me philosophising on a few posts, too 😉

I’m excited at starting something new and look forward to having you all on the journey; as always!

Live, Love & Laugh ‘LittlePianoDiva’ Style!
