Hi, I am Shehar Bano Rizvi, a certified Project Management Professional(PMP) and a Software Engineer by profession. A Pakistani expat living in Qatar for over 13 years, whose maternal instincts took over her career aspirations and she decided to give up her high-profile Banking career to be a hands-on mom.

A story teller, a self-taught photographer with an eye to see the extraordinary in the ordinary, a globetrotter seeking new adventures in life, an interior design lover and a compulsive organizer, stirring up recipes in her kitchen, a passionate DIY-er and crafter, a party planner, an avid reader and a movie junkie, and a multitasking mom sharing her passion through the blog.


This blog will give u an insight into the constant battle between my mind and heart, which is torn between motherhood and my professional career.. Since I haven’t gone back to my professional career after starting my family.. I keep myself busy with DIY projects, Home Improvement projects, Cooking, Cake decorating , Party planning etc etc.. you’ll see a bit of everything on this blog.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog!

    Interesting to read your diary.You gave priority to family over your career and I wish that your kids excel in life and touch heights in career.You chose to be a PMP mom rather than being a PMP Professional and it’s your sacrifice.
