Oula Station Supermarket now Open!

25 Nov


So, seems Oula have opened their supermarket! I think this is great, BUT, what if people start sitting outside ‘beeping’ their horns like they do at the baqalas, this will be a nightmare.
SO, PLEASE, I’m BEGGING you, GET OUT OF YOUR CARS, form an orderly queue and start using the brain that you were born with.

When will Evie Glam arrive in Kuwait?

23 Nov

So, Peacocks clothing store in the UK have finally released a makeup line.
The launch aims to strengthen Peacocks’ aim to be the number one stop shop on the high street for the latest trends in both fashion and beauty, building on its current commitment to offering customers the latest fashion looks at great value and its collaboration with Pearl Lowe – (recent designer line that was released)
‘Evie Glam’ will launch in 250 Peacocks’ stores and online this week and will be regularly updated to reflect seasonal beauty trends, and priced from £2.00 for a plumping lip gloss tube (that’s 1kd ladies!), £2.50 for a glitter nail varnish (1kd 250fils), and £4.00 for an eye palette gift set (that’s just 2kd!). Products in the range include light up lip glosses and every day make-up bag essentials as well as step by step guides to creating this season’s latest beauty looks. ‘Evie Glam’ offers the perfect beauty solution for chiconomisters in search of glamour on a budget.
It’s called Evie Glam…after the clothes. Evie is the label. I can’t wait. Personally, I love the range that Peacocks offer. The material washes well and they always have a huge variety. I actually quite like there store in Avenues but it’s tiny! The stores back in UK are three, four floors high… speaking of three four floors high, why, oh why do we not have a Primark here? Isn’t it time that someone brought it to the Middle East?

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!

Playstation Phone…oh no.

Help, please ladies….

A view of Harvey Nichols in London

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 🙂
