Although I love Fahad Hussayn’s work, I was a little disappointed when I saw his collection. No one piece stood out for me – which is a surprise because I really liked the sneak peeks of his Laaj Nagar Collection!

That’s a pretty ‘meh’ outfit if you ask me
I like this
I love the yellow. I want lots of yellow.

How stunning is this?
What are your thoughts?
It’s time to indulge our eyes with bridal fashion. YEAY! I’ll post a roundup of the highlights from the show but for now, here is one of my favourite new designers. I have come to love Elan’s collection.
Love the colours on this one
Pretty colours but I’m not loving the neckline – a little unflattering
How hot is the back? Too bad it’s way revealing for me!
- Intricate! The colours and kaam remind me a little of Sana Safinaz

Love it or seen the same thing too many times? Tell me what you think!
I’m a little late in posting these images but married life is busier than I thought! With the exception of last Sunday, Nouman and I haven’t had a single weekend free in a looong time. Add our work schedules into the mix and we’ve got crazy long days. So yes, I’ve been busier than I was before the wedding – who would’ve thunk it?!
Anyway, here are some of the highlights from Delhi Couture Week! I’m totally into all the lace, black and white and full sleeves.
Manav Gangawi – I love the black and white. Especially the outfit on the right
Gaurav Gupta – I’m not a fan of the yellow/orange outfit but I love the colour!
Varun Bahl – Lace looks hot
Lookie! It’s Madhuri Dixit (she’s my favouritest) wearing Anju Modi
JJ Valaya – love the pop of colour. The middle outfit is so different
Sridevi wearing Sabyasachi
Manish Malhotra – I like the idea of having sheer fabric covering the outfit
Manish Malhotra – How stunning is the first outfit?
I can’t decide what I think about this piece from Shantanu and Nikhil’s collection. Definitely eye-catching!

I’m loving all the long open shirts with sharara – how about you?
On the weekend, Nouman, his mom and I went for dosa. It was my (and Nouman’s) first time trying dosa – I have wanted to try it for a long time but never got around to it. Nouman’s mom has had it before so she suggested The Nilgiris in Scarborough.
Since none of us are dosa experts, we asked our server for suggestions. Nouman’s family likes well-spiced foods so he suggested the Mysore Masala Dosa with Onions. Nouman didn’t think he would get full by eating just one dosa, so he ordered 2. Obviously. Our order: 2 Mysore Masala Dosa’s, 1 cheese Dosa and 1 Rava Onion Dosa. All their dosa’s come with Sambar (vegetable stew with lentils and veggies) and 3 chutneys.
Mysore Masala Dosa with Onions: Thin crepe made of rice and lentils, coated with the Mysore paste and stuffed with potatoes and onions
The Mysore Masala Dosa was yummy but a little bit too spicy for me. The filling was yummy – potato and onions mixed with a spicy masala.The potatoes are stuffed at the center of the dosa – so that the dosa doesn’t get soggy. Although the dosa was crispy, next time I’ll be ordering potatoes on the side.
Cheese Dosa: A regular dosa coated with cheese and stuffed with potato and onions
The cheese dosa was delicious. The filling was the same as the Mysore Masala but the dosa was coated with cheese. I liked eating just the dosa portion – the cheese flavour tasted like the remains of a grilled cheese sandwich. You know what I mean by remains, right? It’s the extra bit of cheese that gets grilled a little bit longer and gets left behind in the pan (I eat it).
Rava Onion Dosa
I think this was everyone’s favourite. The dosa was crispy, light, and very flavourful. The onions were partly cooked so the flavour was bursting. When I asked Nouman why he liked it and he said it reminded him of a dry omelette.
While Nouman, the meat lover, didn’t love dosa’s, I can’t wait to go again!
Over the past few weeks, I have featured numerous couples on Friday. I thought I’d switch gears and highlight a multi-talented individual today!
While searching for a decorator for my wedding, I came across Sara Baig Designs. Sara Baig does design and event planning – be it a wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, anniversary, birthday or any other special moment.
Although I did like SBD’s work online, I really fell in love when I saw her work at a family friends wedding. Her work exudes beautiful simplicity, elegance and modern chic. I have seen Sara Baig’s work numerous times now and I have always been blown away by the classiness.
I had the opportunity to meet Sara Baig at the Civilized Bride Show – she is sweet, down to earth, and easy to talk to. Her personal style reflected that of her work – simple, elegant and oh-so-polished.

I am so excited to share this amazing pizza place with you guys. My mom, sisters, Nouman and I love pizza – it’s my all time favourite thing to eat.
A few years ago, I had deep dish pizza in the Middle East. Since then, the only other time I’ve had deep dish was in Chicago this summer. I love deep dish and have been on a mission to find it in Toronto. For those who don’t know, deep dish pizza is different from regular pizza because the crust is thick and deep (hence the name!).
Guess what? I found a place and it is heavenly! Those of you who eat Halal, they have Halal chicken options.
Mickey’s Pizza is a small pizza joint in Mississauga – it can seat about 10 people in the summer and probably 5-7 in the winter. There isn’t alot of space inside the place but it is screaming of character. Surprisingly, for a small place, they have a very extensive menu. There are options for meat lovers, chicken fanatics and even vegetarians like me!
We got one of the combo specials – 3 deep dish pizza’s for $45. 2 of our pizza’s were vegetarian and the other one had chicken. We ordered The Cheesy Beast, Spinach King and Mango Tango.
- Crust: Buttery but not greasy, thick but not heavy and overall just perfect.
- Sauce: I love that the pizza isn’t dripping with sauce but isn’t dry either. The balance of sauce and cheese is just right
I love it when I can see some of the cooking/baking
2 of our 3 pizza’s – $45 for 3 deep dish pizza
The Cheesy Beast
- Mozzarella, Goat, Feta, Cheddar, Asiago, Parmesan & Monterey Jack Cheese
- This pizza is a cheese-lovers dream. I’m not a huge fan of ooey-gooey-cheesey things so this was a bit much for me but overall, I still really liked it. Even for someone who doesn’t love cheese, I still liked the pizza – it just wasn’t my favourite. Of the 2 veggie pizza’s, my mom and Nouman labelled this as their favourite
The Cheesy Beast
- Sauteed Spinach with Cheddar, Asiago, Parmesan & Monterey Jack
- This was my favourite – it was very flavourful and all the ingredients complimented each other remarkably.
- Chicken, Carmelized Onion, Mango, Hot Peppers and sprinkled with Garam Masala
- I can’t say much about this since I didn’t have it. The overall consensus was that this was the best of the 3 – probably because most people like meat
Spinach King Slice
I would absolutely recommend this joint for all deep dish lovers. Comparing this to Chicago, I think Mickey’s Pizza just might be 0.01 better!
Note: If you eat Halal, make sure you check with them each time you go there as their supplier could change anytime.
