Review: The American

16 Nov

Well, I’m not quite sure where to start. Hubby and I thought we’d have a romantic night in, put kids to bed early and watch a movie.

Well, George Clooney as an assassin- hmm yummy, or so I thought..

This movie is HORRIBLE. Absolutely HORRIBLE.

There has been more nudity than what you would see on a beach in Spain. And, I honestly feel like it should be X Rated. It’s horrible.

Word of advice; don’t bother watching it.

The story is typical- guy has to kill girl/falls in love/mission impossible. As for the acting, I’m sure the kids in our local schools could act better.

George Clooney has definitely lost his mojo.

 

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!

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

Thanks, SubwayMum!

Thanks to SubwayMum I got some very useful information this morning!

So, we all know, I’ve started my diet AND yes, I’m taking Lipo 6 which by the way is going ok. I have loads of energy, no sick feeling, no headaches and inshallah it will stay that way.

I was thinking of getting a treadmill, went last night, looked around and just didn’t see any that I liked. Nasser Sports in Salmiya had two. One was priced at 148 and the other 98. They looked quite bulky but the run strip just didn’t seem wide enough. Hubby tried them and agreed. We decided we would wait and check out the Sport’s shops up near Qurain. Anyway, this morning Subwaymum said, ‘why a treadmill? why not get a elliptical cross trainer? Treadmills are terrible for your knees! I had always assumed that a treadmill was best, nothing can shift fat like a good run. But, after some research I am wrong.

A quick comparison:

When you compare treadmills to elliptical trainers, you can’t help but notice that the elliptical trainer offers an impact-free workout. With the elliptical, there is no impact on the ground, which may appeal to people who need a gentler workout because of joint problems or pain. The treadmill offers more impact, which helps strengthen the bones.

One obvious point that is in favor of treadmills is that it provides a better training experience for a dedicated runner/jogger than an elliptical trainer. If you are training for a marathon or even a 10k, and you don’t want to go outdoors too often during the colder months, you are certainly better off with a quality treadmill.

That being said, if you are looking for a quality cardiovascular workout with the maximum amount of efficiency, the elliptical is an excellent choice. Most elliptical trainers give you a total body workout if you have dual action handlebars for your arms and foot pedals for your legs, whereas treadmills focus more on your lower body as they simulate the jogging experience.

So, there you have it…the cross trainer seems like a better choice.

Thanks, Subwaymom, you saved me my knees and a whole load of cash since the cross trainers are much cheaper too!

Iphone just got Icy!

5 Oct

How cool would it be to charge your phone in a charger that looks like ice!!! These are actually made of premium crystal glass, these crystal chargers are each carefully handcrafted It takes several days to completely finish a beautifully clear and polished crystal dock. The charger also works with iPods too.

and now, for the best part, they come in different designs!

The Aurora Limited Edition is a fantastic price at 99kd and the others at 56kd which are just as cute! Let’s be honest! We ALL NEED ONE OF THESE! You can buy them here

It’s almost, Summer!

5 Oct

God, I’ve been sooo busy, it’s ridiculous. Anyway, I’m back now! I promise!

Decided where you are going next summer yet? No,I’m not mad but you need to start planning! It’s almost December! Really! It will be next year before we know it!

Make sure you go picking out the right outfits though……..

The Balmain Spring 2011 collection filled the Paris Fashion Week runways with a variety of punk-rock styles that shocked its viewers. Featuring more safety pins than stitches, the models strutted down the catwalk in ripped tees, studded biker jackets and stained jeans.  – safery pins, ripped tees and studded biker jackets……..so, how exactly are Kuwait going to make this one work? Hmmmm…

What you think? Thumbs up or down?

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.
