folkyflo & the little eves

A few weeks ago I introduced everyone to FolkyFlo Eve. And now it’s time to introduce you to the Little Eves. The idea of a smaller Eve arose when I felt the original Eve was a little too cumbersome and conspicuous for me to carry around. So I kept her with friends (she had a great time, but […]

until love } a hundred and thirty-eight

I started this endeavor a few months ago. I’m still obsessively creating these little structures and I won’t stop until I find love. Here I’ve added a bonus session from this afternoon. It’s getting more challenging as these polyhedra take over my living space. Also, setting up these shoots is literally a pain in the […]

UK days } part VI

This part of my London trip starts October 3rd. On the advice of a friend, I visited Erno Goldfinger’s home on Willow Street in Hampstead. I didn’t take any photos there but I left the house with a sense of having been there before. It evoked feelings of life in Iran in the mid-70s, even though the home […]

UK days } part V

This is the fifth part of my last trip to London (I’m posting a week’s worth of pics at a time) spanning September 26th to October 2nd. In terms of reuniting with old friends, meeting new ones and visiting family, this week was my busiest.

UK days } part IV

I’m posting the rest of my September/October ‘UK days’ retrospectively, as my laptop went wonky after only a week in London. I’m back in Kuwait now, recovering from my very long trip, getting back into the hang of things.

thinking about tattoos

I haven’t really told anyone because a. I was worried it was just a whim and b. I don’t really care for the larger public to know, but I’m seriously considering the art of tattoo as a career. Well, tandem to everything else I’m doing. I know I have my own aesthetic and my own […]

It looks like we did a lot, but we didn’t.

UK days } part II

It’s been a busy few days since my sister and I arrived in London on September 10. You may notice that there isn’t a Part I to this, and that’s because I started this trip’s log with an Airplane Timelines post. I have very confused organizational methods.

airplane timelines } ba 156 kuwait to heathrow

It’s a long trip to London this time and I’m wondering if I made the right decision to stay for this long. It’s just that I’m at a crossroads and need to be here to know exactly how I want to conduct the next few years of my life.

eve, me & the polyhedra

A few days ago I trekked to Muji at the Avenues to restock on color origami paper. Of course, as expected, they were out. But I found these square notepads with ecru-colored paper, ready and perfect for being stamped and folded. The new polyhedra are smaller, which I actually like. And I don’t think that Muji Kuwait […]

stories of eves } fatima & eve } part two

This is part two of Eve’s adventures with my friend (and her friend now) Fatima Fayez. When Fatima sent me these, she included her own narrative. I loved reading Eve’s days unfold via Fatima’s Whatsapp messages! So I’m going to post them here along with the photos she took.

stories of eves } fatima & eve } part one

A few weeks ago I introduced Eve to my friend Fatima Fayez. The two got on like a house on fire, and now they are the best of travel buddies. Although Fatima was great at showing Eve around Kuwait’s finer sites, it is this trip that Eve will remember most dearly. Not only was she […]

1001 eves } eves by wafa rashed

Yesterday my friend Wafa Rashed sent me all these delightful photos of Eve at Sunday night’s 1001 Eves tea party. The more she sent (this went on all day!) the fewer I included in my previous post, simply because hers were much nicer. Of the 53 Eves exploring Dar Nur, she found 39. Not bad! Thank […]

1001 eves } eves come out to play

I wanted my Eves to have an official ‘coming out’ party so Noor and I set a meet-and-greet tea last night at her shop. The weather was lovely and Eve got to meet a few of our friends and family members. And somehow the event turned into an Eve treasure hunt. It was fun and […]

a rainy november day in junieh with david and hussein

This is long overdue. I have been meaning to write a post about my visit to my new friends David Habchy and Hussein Nakhal’s Junieh studio since November. I ‘met’ David via Instagram (you must check out his gallery here) and flew to Beirut in October mainly to meet him. I wanted to explore his […]

girls explore } eves discover zeri crafts

Christmas time is upon us, it’s snowing on prettygreenbullet and I’m in the mood for a bit of shopping. As much as I’ve always appreciated hand-crafted items, my last trip to London, specifically the Contemporary Crafts & Design Fair in Chelsea, intensified my desire for all things handmade with passion and love. So in the spirit of Christmas […]

uk days } part one

I am finding being in the UK rather difficult this time. I don’t know if it’s my long stay (two weeks) when I’m missing my kids already, Naz leaving tonight or the loneliness I’m feeling without *him*. It’s not like I hadn’t been here before without him in my life, but somehow it’s sadder this […]

girls explore } a visit to LB o J’zazz and other things

The girls visited my friend Lubna at her studio LB o J’zazz last week and decided to stay behind. That’s OK because I know Lubna’s taking good care of them. In fact she’s taken to photographing them too. Here, you’ll find two of her photos among mine. Both the girls and I are in good company indeed!
