World Arthritis Day

October, popularly host to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is also home to World Arthritis Day. The relative lack of awareness of this day consequently leads to lower general awareness about arthritis.

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is the inflammation of one or more joints. A joint is the area where two bones meet. There are over 100 different types of arthritis. Sufferers include men and women, children and adults. Certain types of arthritis are heriditary. Infants born with arthritis suffer in constant pain which persists throughout their lives.

Emirates Arthritis Foundation is hosting the World Arthritis Day in Dubai. If you are available on the 12th and 13th of October, why not support the event by attending or volunteering?

Just Married

In my 30 before 30 list I had mentioned that I would like to decorate my wedding reception someday. Unfortunately, due to a series of mishaps we had to postpone the kind of reception we originally planned. That did not stop us from having a small celebration at home though.

Being introverts, my husband and I are not very good at throwing a party, so we tried making the house look livelier by decorating it with something to talk about, like photos on the wall!

Each photo has a story to tell, like the first bouquet he gave me, his “I’m sorry” flowers, our first pet, his favourite photo of us, my bachelorette party, etc.

The wall opposite the TV has nothing interesting on it, so we decorated it with hearts and Mr. & Mrs. cutouts.

And of course, what is a wedding without the “Just Married” banner?

What about the favours? We had less than a week to plan the party, which is why we settled for a consumable wedding favour, like cupcakes. We thought of macaroons first, but I did not have enough time to create small boxes, neither were they easily available.

We got the cupcakes from Cinnabon and the boxes from another store, whilst the cupcake toppers and the “Thank you!” tags are all DIYs.

After the party we also gave our three witnesses different gifts according to their personality and a framed photo of the three of them together.

Hopefully, after a year or two there will be an updated wedding celebration that I have decorated the way I’ve dreamed it would be. Until then, let us raise our glasses in a toast to married life! ♥
