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 […]

the reincarnation of eve

I have been following Laura Bevan on Instagram for a while now. As I do with many artist friends I’ve ‘met’ on Instagram, I like a lot of her posts/artwork. But it’s her dolls I fell in love with. Because I’m always up for a collaboration, I asked her if she would create an Eve for me, […]

UK days } april 28 to may 8, 2016 } part II

This trip has been packed. For someone who has made it her mission this time to ‘chill’, I’ve done a lot, met new friends and caught up with old ones. This sojourn has, however, been a bit of a challenge, at moments even regretful…I don’t know why…well, I do but I won’t tell, for various reasons. Funny enough, […]

three days in nayland } cobblers cottage

This is my fourth visit to one of my beloved Grove Cottages. This time: Cobblers Cottage. My companions are my sister-in-law Jana, her baby bump (my nephew) and, of course, Eve. The cottage is breath-taking and as always exceeds my expectations. I still can’t believe how generous people are with sharing these lovely ‘homes’.

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 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 […]

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.

girls & the pantiles

One of the things I love about being at my brother and his family’s Surrey home is the immediate burst of inspiration I get. From the ever-changing landscape to the three overgrown greenhouses in the wooded area, my heart always swells with excitement! How could I not integrate my work with the nature and architecture the Pantiles has to offer? […]

uk days } the most wonderful trip

What a perfect little trip I took. All across the board, from finally visiting the Dennis Severs House, to successful shopping sprees, to a dear friend’s wedding. And even the pitfalls were to laugh about almost immediately. But alas with a most wonderful trip, comes a tremendous dip. I was feeling the anti-climax all day yesterday. […]

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 […]

the traveling tap 4 } the pantiles } leatherhead, surrey

On a freezing morning in January, Roxie and I took my fourth Traveling Tap out for a walk around my brother’s new home in Leatherhead, Surrey. As always, I put her through the wringer. And as always, she obliged. Click here for more of her adventures.
