Don’t leave it too long…

23 Sep

The reality is, most of us wait for that perfect someone. We dream in our teenage years of finding our soulmate. We wait for that ‘perfect’ one. We wait and we wait and we wait but the truth is, no-one is perfect, be it a man or a woman.

You will find faults with your husband and your wife. Everyone has something that will annoy the other person but you got to work through those faults and remember why it is you came to love each other in the first place. But what if you didn’t love each other in the first place? What if it was an arranged marriage?

This week, I had a recently married ‘arosa’ on the telephone, crying. It was an arranged marriage and she felt like he wasn’t paying attention to her, was shouting too much…’you can’t do this, you can’t do that’…the ‘I’ve just got married, you don’t cook like my mother syndrome’.

This is life. This is marriage. Of course EVERYONE has their problems. Within time, for many, they do disappear but what if they don’t, all because you didn’t know the person to begin with?

Marriage of Louis of France, Duke of Burgundy ...

I for one can’t understand why anyone would agree to an arranged marriage in the first place, YES, I know it’s the culture, it’s tradition, it’s this, it’s that and it doesn’t only happen here. Arranged marriages date right back to Louis XIV of France and Marie Theresa of Spain which was the 16th Century BUT…how can you put two people in a house and expect them to get along? What if they hate each other? What if they can’t stand to even hear the other one speak? Perhaps, that persons voice irritates the hell out of you, what then?

My advice to her was, he is your husband, you agreed to this. You aren’t a stupid person, you are intelligent, this is going to take time, ALOT of time. But what else could I say to her? You were stupid to ever do it in the first place?

We all have problems. We dwell on life too much. We question too much. We wish too much. We wonder too much. We aren’t grateful enough. So here’s what I have to say.

Be happy and grateful for what you have.

If you wait and wait and wait for; that perfect moment, that perfect guy, that perfect day, that perfect month-your life will be over.

Take each day as it comes.

Live life to the full.

Wake up with a smile on your face.

Just say el7umdela for what you have been given.

Afterall, no-one is perfect.

Guess which perfume?

21 Sep

So, I got this perfume.. Guess by Marciano and I don’t know what it is but it’s incredibly gorgeous! Yes, I said ‘incredibly gorgeous’…not the normal way to describe a perfume but this is just so ‘incredibly good’. I smell devine when I wear it, really. I do.

It is is subtle, sweet, pretty, feminine and it has a fresh, youthful aroma.

Even though this came out in 2007, it still tops the best sellers for perfumes.

So, you can buy this for around 20dinars, yes, that’s right, it isn’t expensive at all.

I googled just now to see if I could buy it online later and I found this! 30 bottles for 226kd…….wow, now, there’s an idea for a few bazaars……. make up pretty little girly boxes with perfume, candles, a book, perhaps? You can be sure to make a profit!

What’s happening at the Exhibition area?

21 Sep

The School Stationary Exhibition- this just started 19/09/2010 and is running until 28/10/2010 – ok this doesn’t interest me much .. but you may like to go and get some things for uni/school or teachers, perhaps you can find some good resources!

Now, I’m excited!!! Not long to go until………..

What an evil, evil woman

20 Sep

An American bride faked leukemia to finance her wedding… WTH? With the help of friends, family and perfect strangers, the couple were married and sent away on a honeymoon, all expenses paid- it didn’t end there though.

The bride faked leukemia claiming she had only months to live, and this spurred a heart-wrenching rush of donations to plan for the woman’s dream wedding.

She got a timeshare, donations, 14carrot wedding rings, wedding dress, a doctor’s letter……….psycho b*^%h

Think if I was a man and my wife to be had done this, it would be a quick escape. He has since divorced her. The husband called her ‘so-called doctor’s office….they have never heard of her…….no trace of her.

She is STILL saying she has terminal cancer. She says she has found a ‘miracle cure’ by eating fresh food and fresh drinking water.

What a crazy bitch. Evil, pure evil to make up lies like that.

I heart New York

19 Sep

My mum left me a few books when she visited this summer, she knew I wouldn’t be returning to work and thought it would be nice to leave them here to give me something to occupy my time. I’m so glad she did!

One of them is called, ‘I heart New York’.

Describe it in five words, ok.. SEXY, HOT, FUNNY, SINGLE, GLAMOUR

This book is a MUST-READ for all girls in their 20’s, 30’s. Saying that, my mum is much older than this and she loved it.

Here’s a brief description.. When Angela catches her boyfriend with another woman at her best friend’s wedding in the car with his pants down……….. she’s heartbroken and desperate to run away. Especially once she’s confronted her friend and inadvertently broken the groom’s hand, in front of the entire reception. There’s only one place that will cheer her up. New York. Join Angela as she lands down in the big apple, holes up in a luxurious hotel, gets a head to toe makeover and meets a gorgeous man in Starbucks. I HEART NEW YORK is a fabulous, feel-good romantic comedy, guaranteed to be the biggest summer read and the launch of a huge new talent.

I’m almost finished. Few more chapters… I’ve never laughed so much at a book.

Start your day with some Hotness……

19 Sep

Here ya go ladies 🙂

Start your day off with a bang.

*shakes and dances and falls*- ouch.

Zero is NOT a size.

18 Sep

Recently, I noticed mark@248am had blogged about 10 Fattest Countries in the world re: Girls.

Well, here’s what I’ve got to say to ALL of you. Ladies and Gents.

I’m sick and tired of people going on about wanting to be a size 0, a size 2, a size 4, a size 6.

We are ALL different shapes and sizes. AND No, I’m not FAT. I’m not jealous. I just don’t want to ever be smaller than a size 12. Curves are sexy. Big Bums are sexy. Big breasts well, those are annoying BUT…my point is, stop f^&*ing moaning at us about our weight.

Curves don’t equal fat, truth be told, many girls in this day and age are scarily thin and end up with anorexia. If all we have to worry about is a little extra meat well, we should be proud of ourselves.

As for you, MEN, the majority of you may watch your weight, may take pride in your appearance but truth be told, most of you are Jerks and it isn’t your wives that you do it for. Yes, that’s right, I said it.

It’ s very, very hard being a mother, a wife, a daughter and the person that we are expected to be by our partners/husbands/boyfriends. We may not live up to your expectations but do you ever think, you definitely don’t live up to ours??

Ladies do NOT have it easy.

We have to put up with double emails, two phones, calls in the night, un-named names in mobiles……….sound familiar girls? Yes, we have ALOT to put up with ……SO, if we feel like gaining a few pounds and eating a bar of chocolate, leave us the hell alone. We deserve it.

We don’t want to be like this………….

Marilyn Monroe was a size 16 and she was gorgeous!

Please note, the above model is Brazilian Fluvian who is a plus-size model size 16/18 for Elle, isn’t she gorgeous?

So ladies, no matter what anyone thinks of you, PLEASE know that you ARE beautiful.

It just takes one thing to make you a fighter.

This post is DEDICATED TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY. You know who you are.

I love you. No matter what anyone else thinks.

I want a bumpit!

16 Sep

So, I’ve covered fashion trends, how about hair trends for Winter 2010/2011?

Any ideas? Well……keywords here are BIG, MASSIVE, BEEHIVE and BUMPIT.

So, for years and years, we have always backcombed and had a ‘puff’ here in Kuwait but FINALLY the western world are following suit. Only problem is, they have created a much easier way to achieve the ‘puff’.

The disadvantage to our method yani ‘backcombing’ is the disastrous effects it has on our hair. It permanently leaves the hair damaged and splits the ends.

So thank goodness for the latest hair accessory… the BUMPIT…. What is it? Well, it looks like this…

and EVERYONE is using them..

If you want to have a go yourself, here’s a tutorial on how.

I saw them in Sally’s in the UK but not sure what the equivalent of that is here, maybe the hair centre in Salmiya.

I think you can probably find these Bumpit’s in Claire’s Accessories in Kuwait, will check and let you guys know.
