Nivea’s Angel Star Line

15 Nov

So, today in Lulu, I found a fantastic bargain! I got the new Nivea Angel Star Line lotion (and deodorant free)… it was only 1.050kd. Cheap, right?

Well, I tried out the lotion tonight, it feels amazing and smelt so good that I wanted to eat it!! It gave me that soft feeling that we all crave!  Basically it has a special formula that contains a balanced moisturizing technology with micro fine powder particles that adapt to the level of moisture needed on different body zones.

Result: oily zones are mattified and dry zones are intensively moisturized while the irresistible raspberry scent pleasantly enwraps your skin.

I seriously recommend everyone tries it! I’m more of a neutrogena type of girl but not any more! I’m sticking with Nivea!!

And GUYS: 😛 Yes, guys use lotions too!! I got my husband some of the lotion for men.

He was ‘happy’ with it. LOL

Nivea is getting 10/10 from me for their products!

Gadgets, gadgets, gadgets…where would men be without their ‘toys’?

For those that are TryingtobeFahad you’ll love this one!


The Adidas miCoach uses heart rate zones to create varied, complete and personalized workouts—it’s essentially a more advanced and personalized Nike+ system. This little fitness gadget also gives you real-time feedback. You can sync miCoach Pacer to adidas.com/micoach to analyze your stats and get coaching feedback online. This is priced at only 70 US Dollars which is great!

 

 

 

 

So, It’s the Nikon D5000 – need I say more?

 

 

 

And this next one, is for all you music lovers! I’m so hyped about this! I can’t describe to you the quality of sound that you get from it! I picked one up in the UK back in summer.

It’s the JVC-RV-NB50 KABOOM! If you love sporting a retro look, then this new iPod/iPhone speaker dock by JVC will really suit your style!

 

Mr Amazon is a genius for creating this next one, when I first saw it on Oprah, I was super excited! It’s Amazon’s EBook Reader, Kindle.

The fantastic thing about this is, when the Kindle first came out, it cost somewhere around 500 dollars, the price has dropped dramatically (which is surprising as it now comes equipped with wifi) to about 300 dollars.

 

 

 

 

It’s the blackberry playbook…nothing like the ipad but hey, give them a break, they are trying…

 

 

So, this year’s gadgets havent been up to much BUT…here’s what we’ve got to look forward to in 2011/2012…

Iphone 5!

3D Sony VAIO

The Verizon iPhone

2011 Nissan LEAF, an ambitious 5 door hatchback car that runs on electricity and purportedly can go 100 miles on a single charge. It will cost around $32,000!

We really are moving forward…………..scary eh?

Just think, 50years ago, TV’s were black and white.

Loving my new jimmy choo uggs!

10 Nov

Ahhh!! A friend just brought me back some Jimmy Choo Uggs!! They are super comfy and only cost her 200 Euro during her trip to Dublin, she had to pre-order them though! What a fantastic birthday present!

I’m heading back in December to UK and am thinking of getting these starlit ones (see below)…they are so cute, I just don’t know if I’m ”brave” enough to wear them outside… tell me what you think..

Bit much?

I’m just thinking, is there a Jimmy Choo in Avenues? If so, someone let me know which phase! I always make it as far as the food section and then turn around…..I get bored quickly!

Btw, for anyone that doesn’t know…. Jimmy Choo’s are like wearing chocolate on your feet!! They are simply amazing! Jimmy Choo was Carrie’s favorite Boutique in Sex and the City (yes! Now you remember!)

Al Mayas Restaurant Review

9 Nov

Wow! Where on earth do I start?! It’s delicious.
Food 10/10
We ordered the usual, taboula, fattouche, homous, lamb chops, kebab and potato with kuzbar! It was delicious! Lamb chops were cooked to perfection! Location 10/10 -except during rush-hour! We went at 4. It was quiet, not many around. It was nice. It’s located right off Al-Bida Roundabout, down on the beach behind Sheik!
Staff very friendly. Smartly dressed.
Option to sit inside or out!
Great place to go with family as kids can play on beach and within eyeshot!
Al Mayas gets 10/10 from me!
I’m definitely going back there soon!
Total for everything was 18kd and that was drinks included. Reasonable enough!
Sorry, I don’t have pics! Sun was setting and my BB doesn’t have a flash! X

Playpens are us!

7 Nov

So, we have passed the stage of sitting in our walker, we now want to sit and play and/or attempt to crawl…problem is, all my floors are marble and well, we’ve already had one bump to the head and I don’t fancy my little one having another so, I’m looking for a playpen! At least, if he wants to crawl about in there, he isn’t going to bang his head!

I looked in mothercare but they seemed to have only a couple! I want a nice bright one, one that doesn’t resemble a cage…

Something similiar to this

not this

So, other than Mothercare, WHERE in Kuwait can I find one? And please, don’t go telling me those cheap, crappy stores at the side of the road that sells kids stuff that’s been made in india that’s gonna fall apart and/or hurt my kid… I want something that’s been safety approved in the states/uk.

Bye Bye Pen and Paper

6 Nov

What happened to pen and paper? Internet has taken over.

I miss pen and paper.

It’s sad to think, my daughter won’t have a diary. I had a diary since the age of 8. It was Winnie The Pooh and it had a lock on it. I kept it under my mattress and funnily enough, my mother never ever ‘sneaked’ to read it. Every night, I wrote down what I had done that day…what I had achieved, what I had found difficult… my daughter’s diary will be right here, this…a blog… I’m sure of it and I suppose, that’s ok.

Hell, my diary has become my blog to a certain extent. Years ago, when I first started off, in my late teens, my blogs were horrific…tears….tantrums…crushes…breakdowns…heartache…all rolled into one. I don’t know how my readers stayed with me for so many years. I hit 150,000 views in a year and stopped. It was a good blog. And, no, before you ask, not a chance am I telling you what it was called.

We all need to just ‘vent’ sometimes. This week, a friend ‘passed away’, well, it was suicide. Scary thing is, I’ve just got more details and apparently he didn’t trust anyone and thought that the majority of people that surrounded him were infact, ‘spies’….lordy lord, im not joking. Sad, tragic, infact…

I will encourage my teenage daughter to blog, venting is good, expressing oneself is always good. Blocking everything up inside is bad…really bad.

So, all mums out there, let your daughters blog… and to all ladies out there, say what you want, say how you feel, remember, it’s just a screen, no-one actually knows who you are 🙂

And to all those other mums with young daughter, get your daughter a diary and a pen!
