Could be true…

30 Sep

I just read a comment on another blog.

‘Yes, if we could all stop trying to make our partner into the “ideal mate” and instead focus on what they bring to the relationship, we’d all be happier.’

This probably true and very much related to my ‘don’t wait forever’ post.

We probably dig ourselves into these holes. Trying to make our other half ‘perfect’, that ‘perfect father’, that ‘perfect husband’.

love.hate.love.hate.love.hate.love.hate

Listen to your heart, before you tell him goodbye.

Just in time for Autumn

27 Sep

Alexia Parmigiani has introduced her creative zipped scarves… I totally heart them! Will definitely be keeping my eye out in the shops for these, if I can’t find them here will definitely be on the look-out in the UK over the winter holidays!

Alexia has some fantastic items on her Autumn/Winter range and the prices are great too. These scarves are all custom handmade. So far she has stores in Japan, Beglium, Italy and the UK.. let’s hope we see her here sometime soon!

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.

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………..

Winter Fashion Fair
Date: 03-NOV-10 to 13-NOV-10
Autumn Perfume Exhibition is an 11 day show! wow, I think I’ll go everyday just to see if I find something new.. It is a perfumes & cosmetics exhibition- totally up my street!

It will be organized by Kuwait International Fair and its exhibiting products will include Skin & Facial care, Body care, Nail care & art, Perfumes, Aromatherapy, Foot care and many more.

Whoop whoop! Can’t wait!

Then the following day, the Winter Fashion Exhibition will begin..

Winter Fashion Fair
Date: 04-NOV-10 to 14-NOV-10
Winter Fashion Fair is one of the biggest exhibition in Kuwait which will showcase products like:- gifts, home accessories, design and lifestyle articles, tableware and kitchen accessories, paper, office and stationery goods and much more.

There isn’t much going on in October.

Right  before these two exhibitions, the Careers Fair will take place 2nd Nov-4th Nov. I know many of you will want to attend since it really is becoming so difficult for fresh graduates to find jobs here in Kuwait without Wasta………

On another note; students, you’ll be happy to know their is another Global Education and Training Exhibition at Crowne Plaza but that’s coming up right next month 24th October-25th October. It will attract more than 1,200 students from USA every years and more than 600,000 learners.

Mothercare – The Avenues

21 Sep

Just to let everyone know, Mothercare in Avenues have their end of year sale on. I’m not sure when it started but I passed by yesterday and got some things for the kids!

They also have great maternity stuff at dirt cheap prices!

Got a few babygrows and a couple of tshirts for youngest and totaled only 5kd…fantastic.

Obviously the majority of the stuff is ”summer wear” but great for next year! Why pay 10kd next year for shorts and tshirt when you can get them now for 2kd?

I always buy in advance for my kids, it’s not like kids clothes ‘trend’ 🙂
