Luxury Redefined

Today’s master bathrooms are essentially an adult retreat that in the past was reserved for holidays at fine resorts. In reality, these days master baths are designed to be true home spas, a combination of relaxation and stimulation By Umer Saud

A Secret Hideaway

The bath started life as simply a place in which to perform daily cleaning rituals. However, over the years and with the changes in people’s lives, these rituals and the bath itself have acquired a newly important and central place in daily life By Saima Malik

Retail Therapy: my basic Wardrobe staples wish list

For the past couple of weeks, I have been thinking about stocking up on some basics for winter and coming up with some ideas for next spring/summer – yes, I have been planning to clean up my closet and edit, prune and give away a few items…unfortunately, there are not a lot of options in town (replenishments), especially in my size which is a major bummer….

Ramblings…a working plan for my leisure activities

I was reading about it the other day (Business, the Universe & Everything, Conversations with the world’s greatest management thinkers by Stuart Grainer and Des Dearlove)…the guy who invented mind maps basically had the same problem before he came up with a short hand to organize his thoughts…Tony Buzan’s output trebled and quadrupled after he came up this new system…He’s the “original renaissance man, responsible for over 80 books, a business empire and a legion of other activities.” Everything has been organized to the max, he manages his life and gets to do ton of stuff with his mind maps… By Fareeha Qayoom

Book review – Imran Khan’s Pakistan, a personal history

So what do I think about the book?! – I think, it’s a sales pitch – it screams at you, “Vote for me – I am the only ‘honest’ candidate around for the next prime minister of Pakistan and I am ready to do this job now!” By Fareeha Qayoom

Book Review: Bill Bryson’s ‘A short history of nearly everything’

Unfortunately people who usually write text books or fact books are no writers. I think they should just hire real writers like Bryson…if I had a book like ‘a short history of nearly everything’ at school. Things might have been indeed different. I mean, the book is readable, accessible, and full of fun facts, not to mention, interesting…furthermore, it’s an enjoyable read By Fareeha Qayoom

Never complain, never explain

We are frustrated, depressed and fast becoming a negative bunch of people (if not already) as a nation. We spend too much time focusing on the negative, complaining about things – on television, on newspapers, in our lives. This is toxic and should be stopped ASAP. By Fareeha Qayoom

Banking for Dummies

I feel technology has its place, but nothing can replace a real live human being on the other end when it comes to any transaction that requires an exchange or negotiation between two parties. By Fareeha Qayoom
