I imagine myself as the luckiest person alive, born to amazing supportive parents, married the love of my life and have 3 beautiful children. Couldn’t have asked for more!!
I finished my studies in Business Management and took on a career in brand management and marketing. Worked most of my career with luxury brands until I had my children and that’s when I decided to take time off and enjoy every moment with my babies.
I recently opened a boutique cake & dessert shop/kitchen in JLT, Cake Social, and I can honestly it is a family-run labour of love founded on our appreciation of food, art, and people. We know every customer, their story, and celebrations! Every person matters and it has been truly a pleasure to experience this happiness with each client.
WHERE IS HOME?
Dubai has been my home for the last 30 years, my family moved here in the early 90s when I was young and stayed together ever since. To be honest, I get asked that question often, “where’s home?” and I can honestly say home is where my parents/family are.
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER?
There were two things; a doctor, (of course!!) And the other was a “manager”, basically me sitting behind a desk; stapling, planning, organising, filing – kind of what I do now, lol!
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I run Cake Social, a boutique cake and dessert shop in JLT. We supply to different channels; B2B, corporate and customers.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ACTIVITY TO DO WITH YOUR CHILDREN?
Cuddles, kisses, and date nights.
HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR WEEKENDS?
If I’m not working, I spend every moment with my family and friends, brunching, going to the beach, taking long walks, visiting parks and doing staycations.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?
It’s ever changing!! But it’s comedies lately, so Bridesmaids and Horrible Bosses come out on top. Keeping it light.
IF YOU COULD EAT ONE MEAL FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Carbs, carbs, and more carbs.

WHAT’S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?
Junk Food for sure – ice cream, chips, and cookies.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT LIVING IN DUBAI?
The fact that so many people from different religions, nationalities and cultures can all live under one roof in a respectful manner. We have a fantastic balance of freedom and safety. Winters are amazing!! Can’t complain, I’ve been here 30 years!!!
