And just like that, I’m 28

Processed with VSCO with p5 preset

I’m 28! Feels like a very revolutionary age. And a pretty fire-ry sign. Googled up some famous Aries personalities… Lady Gaga. Leonardo Da Vinci. James Franco. Seth Rogen!!

I always tell myself that I’m not one for birthdays, but there was something about this one that made it feel extra special. There is so much change happening in my life right now – the birthday sort of felt like an awesome day to stop and think: I’m blessed, and happy. Previously its been more like ‘I’m blessed, and hungover. Slightly depressed too actually, if I must tell.’

I had a great day though, filled with everything I love. My day looked something like this:

00.00am – brought in my birthday with a small group of lovely girlfriends, candles, pasta and wine

9.00am – breakfast with Saif. scrambled eggs, tomatoes and bacon – yum

9.45am – FaceTime with family back home

10.30am – swim and tan at Taj Mahal hotel with Saif

12.30pm – Saif left for work. I swam, tanned more, and worked from the pool

3.00pm – walked home, showered

4.00pm – meeting with a new client. fun!

5.30pm – FaceTime with family back home

6.30pm – co-hosted an event and discussion on curating and collecting art

8.30pm – met Saif at a bar, drank a beer and played some games at the bar

9.30pm – family dinner with Saif and Shehla

late night – FaceTime with family back home


I also had a chance to reconnect with some of my oldest and best friends across the world. That’s my favourite part about birthdays – the reconnecting and remembering part.

Basically – a full day of everything and everyone I love.

Thank you
