Second Week of the Year and I'm finally able to use my #PracticalPaleo (2nd Edition) book by @dianesanfilippo to experiment new nourishing recipes and go back to Paleo from a place of self-love and acceptance. Today I'll cook 3 recipes from her book and will do extras throughout the week. Creating a weekly menu and doing cook-a-thlons always helps me feel in control and happy.
I guess this is another way to add to my #Happier2017 and keep my body strong!

So, I'm back at my commitment to make my bed everyday as a sign of #SelfLove and as a way to start my day with gratitude and love towards myself (and #MrB). I timed it and the whole thing takes me 3 minutes, but the result is amazing!

Not only do I feel cared for and cherished, but also the whole process is sort of like meditation in movement and gets me in a great mood... even when I'm physically or mentally exhausted (which is part of what living with #Hashimotos is). Growing up, my mom ALWAYS made me make my own bed, and still now, regardless of where she sleeps, she always makes her bed first thing in the morning. Now, I get why!
I'm doing a mini Challenged to get me inspired and accountable to do it everyday (awesome tool for us #Obligers ⬅️) and would love YOU to join me in boosting your happiness and starting your day with the right foot.

If you join me, tag me on a photo to cheer you on! .

Exhausted.
No sleep last night and so much to get going... No morning pages today, no making the bed, no songs, no laughter.
Tension, stress, resentment, exhaustion.
My nursing nights taint darkly the days. My head now pounds and there's not much to say.
I'm truly exhausted to the core. I'm wondering if this was me before.

I've been struggling with #Thyroid issues for years, but it wasn't until birthing Matthew that my body broke down and I finally got the diagnosis I was suspecting for so long: #Hashimotos
Most of my days, I struggle with a sense of dull tiredness that I can't shake off. These days, as I have kept my diet, meditation and sleep on point, I have felt SO much better. But, man, this sleepless night is kicking me back into survival mode.

I'm an active and happy person, but in times like this I struggle even to create thoughts. It's so hard to deal with this, especially as I look ok on the outside.

Tonight, I'll get to bed early, I'll avoid drama, today I'll parent slowly, rely on some aids. Being a #HolisticMamma means knowing I can't give from an empty vessel and balance is ALL I have left.

Hope you're having a better day!

My life whenever I try to get a cute nursing friendly look from @asos_maternity but I haven't been pregnant in 18 months... Sigh! 🤷🏽‍♀️ When will fashion houses create amazing looks for mommas who, like me, decide to breastfeed pass 1 year, aren't still looking pregnant and, despite being mommas, want to feel and look sexy and hot? This. Is. My. Struggle.

Who do I have to talk to about this? Thankfully, I'll be collaborating with some of Qatar's best fashion bloggers to bring affordable fashion and style to women regardless of your body type, lifestyle or taste!

Mikey is going through one of those shitty toddlerhood times when he NEEDS to be on me whenever I'm around. Is not a want, is a full on need. That meant I end up holding or wearing this little monkey as I work on cooking, sorting out the house and try to get stuff done for my practice (focus on the word ➡️TRY⬅️). I remember when Matt was going through this I was just getting my Hashimoto's diagnosis and sorting out my own health chaos, as his clinginess felt like a burden... I was still recovering from PND and it all felt like SO MUCH! But now, as I work more and more learning about human development and psychology, this step in Mikey's development reminds me the rapid brain development and growth he is experiencing, the fact that within few weeks or months his brain will reach a new milestone and he'll fully differentiate between himself and me... he will finally be his own little person! ⚠️Yes, these days are effing tough.
⚠️Yes, I'm exhausted and losing my temper at times.
⚠️Yes, I can't wait to have him over this.
⚠️Yes, cooking with 11kg in my back isn't my ideal of heaven... BUT

This too shall pass, and when it does, I'll miss it. So, I'm committed to savour it, to remember that he's just a baby for a little longer, to do what I can to recharge and move forward.

Yesterday, I made 3 dishes, sorted out our weekly meals and answered emails with him in my back (occasionally demanding me to dance around!). This is what my journey into Holistic Motherhood looks like.

How is your week so far? Anyone baby wearing a little one too?

PS: As usual, my @ergobaby comes to the rescue in days like that!

Talk about Women's Empowerment - @ladimakhatib and @elizabethlinder ROCKED the house with their amazing wisdom and message of resilience, authenticity and showing up unapologetically honest and real in a world that NEEDS it. Who do I want to collaborate with? THEM!!! Dima - who should be my new BFF because:
1️⃣I'm a journalist too (yup, believe it or not, I have a certificate to prove it!)
2️⃣I'm Venezuelan (and she lived there and got crazy threatened there so is like we're the same person... sort of 🙄) Elizabeth is like a PR wizard for today's crazy ultra connected world and who also looked flawless... and explained us why owning our $h&t is key in gaining credibility (she didn't use "naughty" words though!!) Thanks @ilqlive and @iloveqatar for this amazing panel and for bring powerful female voice to this crisis talk. You guys are truly trailblazers!

This is a little snap I *stole* from @flyingfoodninja stories where she beautifully captured one of my favourite recipes ever, my Fresh Summer Salsa on our last #PaleoCookingExperience
Everyone who tries this (and this was my golden ticket at this year's International Food Festival) loves it completely and is one of those recipes that become part of your life easily and evolves with you and your family. Trust me, it's a winner!

For this reason, this Salsa is one of the 50 recipes I'm aiming to add to my first Solo Cookbook (#ComingSoon ⬅️) where I'll share some of my story and ideas through good food and laughter. #Empowerment through our tummies!

If you want access to some of the first recipes and would love to learn how to cook delicious nourishing #Paleo meals, go to the link on my Bio and leave me your email address to be the first to know about my future classes.

My Venezuelan wall is done and I can finally feel myself rooting into this home... We moved 3 months ago but finally today I finished hanging (or sticking!) all my paintings and pictures thanks to @lifecoachcarmitaprieto and @titihuerta 💪🏽This is my Venezuela wall 🇻🇪✨and it's perfect!

I've been an expat for almost 10 years and lived in at least 6 different homes... let's just say I truly wanted to slow down and just belong at this stage! When we moved to this home, I was SO excited to decorate the big white walls and having all these beautiful pieces is really bring a breath of fresh air to my life.
The main picture is by @arianuchis and it reminds me of two things about Venezuela:
1️⃣The natural beauty my country has
2️⃣How we, Venezuelans, are like these tepuyes sublimely strong and steady.

Then I have 4 placemat by @geeksestudio (which were a wedding present!) turned into some cool artwork for my wall and finally my @olivarescfc collection (which I madly love😍). Then in the middle right corner my favourite painting in the world, made by my beloved grandma. These are the new background to our lives... the new energy around my home and I can honestly say is completely perfect!

Happy weekend, everyone!

Favourite food at the Qatar Social Event? COFFEE☕️ I mean, it deserves it's own food group - am I right @lihabonfio and @vaninitadoha ⬅️? As usual, I had my meal at home (because I'm always expecting carb-y, gluten-y and non-Paleo stuff at events 🤦🏽‍♀️ and I'm never wrong sadly!). Inshallah, as Qatar grows and evolves with us, we'll have events with fully Paleo menus (what do you think @fahadandabadi should we so this?)... Meanwhile, the coffee, the panels, the connections and talks were AMAZING and oh-so empowering!

Thanks @iloveqatar and @ilqlive for the invitation and the pure awesomeness... should we talk about the Paleo event soon?

Healing elixirs - This has become my daily routine and I can honestly say I feel it transforming my body and mind. Why? Glad you asked! 🤣
Here are the top 5 reasons why I start my day with this ✨magical elixir✨:
1️⃣It supports my digestive health
2️⃣It prepares my gut to start a new day of activity
3️⃣It brings minerals and micronutrients to my body in their easier-to-absorb form
4️⃣It sets the energy of the day from a place of Self Care and Self Love
5️⃣It fuels my brain and metabolism

When I start my day with this, I start my day putting me and my health as a priority, I feel loved and cherished, what else can I ask?

This is my simple recipe and sometimes the ingredients change, but is basically: lukewarm water, lemon juice, @bragglivefoods apple cider vinegar, @gaiaherbs Nettle Leaf extract, @biorayinc Lady Passion and Artemisa and Cloves and a dash of Cayenne Pepper. That's it!

It's not pleasant to drink, but it's not disgusting either... and the benefits make the process worth it!

Are you guys into morning elixirs? How do you start your days?

After few days packed with extra mommy duties as #mrbrown is recovering from a back injury and with our beloved nanny abroad, I was dreaming of today's @hobbyhouseqatar class where the talented @amber.rauf would teach us the beginner's path to Islamic Art.

The location was ideal... @shangrila_doha always provides amazing service and great coffee, the course was packed with information and super fun, and finally the participants were awesome. As always, we talked art, creativity and somehow even discussed nutrition and womanhood. What. A. Treat!

I'll be sharing my final work in a few days, but for now this is a bit of the progress I made during the class (in between long talks 🤣). How are you guys fuelling your day with arts?

Holy Brownie Goodness, Batman‼️‼️These babies are: Paleo, Chewy, Sugar Free, Grain Free, Nuts Free, Dairy Free, School Friendly and flipping delicious! I swear, you guys, I'm proud of all my recipes, but this one right here it's close to the top 3 (or top 1☝🏽!). Wanna try them? Guess what, the amazing team @fahadandabadi will be carrying some of my best recipes soon and these deliciously chewy brownies are among the chosen ones. So, follow them and get ready for out big announcement.

I made this particular recipe for a project we have to cater schools, offering the students the best foods to fuel their learning without compromising taste. Because as a mom of two boys I KNOW kids can be the pickiest ever!

Do these projects sound interesting? Be prepared, #fahadandabadi and #wellnessbyanahi are coming with their best ideas ever to bring to #qatar the best available meals.

Preparing potatoes for our dinner with little *helping* hands around. Now that Mikey is bigger, he and Matt spend more time in the kitchen with me, helping me out and learning the traits.
No, their help isn't always "helpful" but I know how important it is for their development to be part of the process. These days, when our awesome nanny is away, have been beyond hard for me. I'm spending loads more time with them and finding myself spending less time on my own, working on my vision and recharging. I don't always love it. In fact, most days start and end with some shouting and loads of stress.

This is Motherhood Unplugged. This is my reality. This is the price of the amazing privilege I have of being a mother. The days are long, the years short. The chaos wears you down as the love fuels you up. It's an everlasting paradox.

Today, I didn't meditate. I didn't do morning pages or primed myself. Today, I ran around, barking orders, feeling angry at them, at myself... today, is a tough one. But it'll pass. It always does.

As you go on your day as a mother, I'm sending you love and light, this is a tough journey... but we're all doing the best we can.

PS: How cute are these purple potatoes?

I'm such a mermaid! Love the sea, love the water... Yesterday I had the blessing to close my day with a beautiful family in the beach and later sharing a lovely and simple meal.
Two families, three boys and a little dog. We talked parenting, life and #Qatar. We ate great food made with love and we had a blast. That's how I love closing my weeks. That's how I ground myself.

Hope you guys are having a beautiful time!

After 2 months and 6 days in Venezuela (not that I was counting 🙄) my mother @lifecoachcarmitaprieto is back to our home, to her grandchildren, to our little #Qatar tribe... and I can finally breath again.

The days of her absence have been painful reminders of my country's crisis, of my father's death, of the huge gap between my world and that of my countrymen. It has not being easy!

But, she's back and brought me SO much love from #Venezuela as well as some beautiful reminders of my country... like my new @olivarescfc paintings, @coolturafashion tshirts for me and even some maracas (which my boys have been using all day long!). I never imagine paradoxes would feel so true as what I feel today:
- happiness for her return
- delighted with all she brought
- proud of so much art and talent back home
- heartbroken at how things are
- hopeless in a better future for #Venezuela

If you have access to you roots, cherish them... as an unofficial refugee I will forever dream to return, with my family, to the beautiful country where I was born.

⚠️Warning⚠️ This is NOT a makeup tutorial. This is me doing my basic-est makeup (already late for a meeting!) whilst I could hear the boys fighting downstairs. As you have seen, I keep my #makeup simple and fresh, specially these days where the heat melts us within minutes of leaving the house.

The products I have are simple, inexpensive but mostly #chemicalfree - I don't owe ONLY organic stuff because:
1️⃣I can't afford it 🤣
2️⃣There isn't a lot in #Qatar
3️⃣I don't think a little here and there will kill me... Which is why my diet is on point, so that my body can take the chemical load of today's world without crashing. No, is NOT moderation (I actually dislike that word when it comes to diet and health!) is all about #resiliency and knowing that my body can deal with chemicals and toxins, that I get to choose which I bring in and then I get to cleanse it again. It's about my choices and what I know works for me.

I have stuff from:
@maccosmetics ✔️
@younique_corporate ✔️
@chanelofficial ✔️
@araprofessional ✔️ @zaomakeup_official ✔️and more and I love to play with them. In the end, I feel girlie and sexy after doing this for myself!

What are your favourite makeup brands?
