There’s something about brunch that just screams relaxation and contentment. Especially on a Sunday. That’s why my niece and I decided to go out to a cute little café called Coffee & Cream that wasn’t too far from us (we both live within, I kid you not, sixty seconds of each other.)

Her new book, The Rest of the Story, doesn’t disappoint. It is all about summer. ItContinue reading “The Rest of the Story”

So, on the 6th of June, it was the day after Khadija’s 21st birthday and we decided to go to a Thai restaurant (after days of searching for a place).
