This is the blog of an expat mum living in Dubai. I have two boys, James (4) and Teddy (2), born 15 months apart.

My blog is a celebration of the smart, stylish motherhood inspiring me every day in the UAE. It covers everything that is fun and beautiful about being a mum – and none of the practicalities that we could spend too long Googling.

It’s a on-line mini-break from development, nutrition, behaviour, sleeping, etc. and a little indulgence into the most fun bits: nursery interiors, baby clothes, gifts and holidays!

Best of all, it’s a snoop in to the region’s most high profile mums and what motherhood looks like at their homes.

It’s your lifestyle magazine Mamma blog!

I’d love to hear from you, contact me, Heidi Raeside, at
