Kuwait and See

23 Oct
A view of Harvey Nichols in London

Image via Wikipedia

Well, big news!! Harvey Nichols is coming to a mall near YOU! Harvey Nichols have announced the opening of its first store in Kuwait, with the help of the Middle East franchise operator Alshaya…thank you, Mr. AlShaya.

The store, which will be situated in Kuwait’s largest shopping destination, will cover over 10,000-square metres of retail space and will stock Harvey Nichols’ most popular brands and designer names. The store will also house the signature Fifth Floor Restaurant concept, which was originally created for the Knightsbridge flagship but is now synonymous with the Harvey Nichols name.

“Our own research and experience points to a strong market for the brands offered by Harvey Nichols,” Mohammed Alshaya, executive chairman of MH Alshaya Co, said as the partnership was announced.

Harvey Nichols, too, is hopeful that the union will be highly prosperous. Joseph Wan, the company’s chief executive, is “confident that Harvey Nichols will experience lasting success with Alshaya”.

The store is set to open its doors in spring/summer 2011.

OK, Now I have a request! Please, Mr.AlShaya BRING PRIMARK!! Thank you 🙂

Katy Perry does it ‘Hindi’ Style

23 Oct

Well, looks like the ‘girl that kissed the girl and liked it’ has married that idiot, Russell Brand.

The nuptials were held at Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, India, the same spot where the quirky couple got engaged on New Year’s Eve.
While details are scarce on the über-couple’s wedding, hotel employees were seen adorning bird cages with flowers earlier in the day. Media stationed outside of the wedding also reported that the sounds of Indian instruments and songs from Rajasthani folk musicians could be heard from outside of the resort.
Even though Rihanna and Katy have had ‘obvious bust-ups’ in the past, it seems Rihanna was there.
Last Sunday, Brand tweeted this: “@katyperry YOU’RE A HACKER, A BAD WIFE AND YOUR NATURAL HAIR COLOUR IS GINGER. There’s not enough dye in the world to rinse away the lie.” That message came a few minutes after Brand seemingly tweeted, “My farts smell.”
Yes, lovely…that’s definitely the type of husband that I would like to have.
For those that don’t know know who he is…have a look:

Haircare Secret-1

23 Sep

Do you have a mop? A mess? Tats? Dryness?

The type of curls that just don’t look curly?

Well, there is a solution for EVERYTHING………..hair included.

I’ve got the worst hair! It’s fine when straightened or blow dried but if I just leave it, it’s MEGA curly…and not in a nice way, it looks like I’ve been dragged through a bush backwards. Anyway, I found a solution 😛

Two drops of baby oil and a pea size amount of vaseline, rubbed together and voila! You will have beautiful SOFT curls! Forget moose – that just makes your curls all scrunchy and hard AND adds moisture BACK into your hair!

Vaseline and Baby Oil = 10/10 in my book!

And YES! I’m being serious!

update: my first comment on this post was ‘really, your not kidding?’ LOL soo.. guys, AGAIN, IM NOT KIDDING!

Just rub this between the palms of your hand and scrunch your hair eshwaya.

For all mums to show their daughters

22 Sep

Linking with my last post, I thought I’d post this video for all mums to show their daughters.

It’s important we let them see THE TRUTH.

The harsh reality is we are to blame

21 Sep

This is an update on this post .

The Italian’s tried to tackle anorexia via an ad campaign using a naked billboard poster of a woman suffering from anorexia.

the harsh reality is this……..anorexia can kill you.

This is a heartbreaking video made by a sister who lost her sister due to anorexia……

I found a video from a young girl studying at Gresham College who has actually suffered from anorexia from the age of 12. She has some interesting views and some insight into the reasons behind anorexia and how she believe the media have much to do with the problem.

it’s also important to remember, men suffer from eating disorders too ……this video is shocking

If you need help, if you feel you are suffering, speak to someone, speak to a friend or even contact me….don’t suffer in silence.

The scary thing is there are thousands like him out there that if they don’t stop, they will die……

What’s even scarier is anorexia can affect pre-teens too. 😦 reason? US… Mum’s are too blame. We complain in front of our children re: weight…….we weight ourselves in front of our girls, they think they should be doing the same.

We say things like, ‘Oh, I can’t eat that chocolate. I’ll get fat’. Your 4 year old WILL pick that up.

Please, be careful.

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!
