Notice anything different?




Yes I am pregnant; and I’m writing this post to share with you some of the stores that I found helpful in this period of my pregnancy (7 months pregnant), where Zara doesn’t fit me any more J

In this picture I’m wearing a top from Anota, they have some cute wide cut tops with long sleeves.


إي أنا حامل ، و أنا قاعده أكتب لكم هذا البوست عشان أشارككم المحلات  إللي لقيت فيها هدوم تكفيني في هذي  المرحله من الحمال ، أنا ألحين بالشهر السابع ، هدوم زارا مو قدي ألحين . في هذي الصوره أنا لابسه توب من أنوتا ، عندهم جم شي مملوح و بكموم طويله 



Top: Anotah
Pants: Maternity in 360 + Avenues Mall
Necklace: Zara
Bag: Paula Cademartori click here and here


Another shop that I got lucky in finding a top that fits me, is Style Boutique, the top is even too wide that I had to take it to the tailor to fix it. check their account out , they have some nice things with affordable prices.

المحل الثاني إللي توفقت في ، ستايل بوتيك ، لقيت عندهم توب قماشه حلو ، وسيع و مريح ، أصلا وايد وسيع لدرجة إني وديته الخياط يضوقه. شوفوا أكاونتهم عندهم كم شي مرتب و بأسعار معقوله ، عاد بسرعه تخلص أشيائهم ، فأول  ما ينزلون صور بالأكاونت لازم الواحد يروح المحل يلحق قبل لا يصير سولد أوت



Pants: Maternity in 360 Mall + Avenues Mall
Necklace : J. Crew
Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo


Ascia in Riva Shirt


The third shop is Riva, I went to them when I saw Ascia on her instagram account wearing that baby blue shirt that I thought will be very comfortable to wear. I tried it on and it was perfect, I got another one in yellow as well. I Will try to show you Riva’s stuff soon

المحل الثالث أهو ريفا ، رحت له اول ما شفت صورة آسيا بأكاونتها و إهيا لابسه القميص الأزرق الوسيع ، قلت أكيد مريح و يغطي . رحت قايسته ، طلع زين ، خذيت منه لون ثاني ، أصفر. بحاول أصور لكم إياه قريبا إن شاء الله

و أكاونتهم على الإنستغرام






Today I received the above picture from my husband through WhatsApp, when I opened it I was shocked, it was ironing courses for housekeepers that are sold out until November. How is that ? I immediately called him and asked where did he get this picture from? and how are they sold out and no one knows about them ? He told me that his trainer came to visit him today at work and gave him his business card, he went into the website that was on the card he found this. 

You really have to ask him more about it once you see him again, and he did, it turned out that he is the co-founder of this institution (Wellington Institute of Standards), they provide courses in ironing, cleaning and healthy cooking for housekeeps and employees. Their website has not been updated for a while, so that is why all courses are sold out. Now they are working on introducing new courses and he will inform us when they will be released on the website

Food Photography




I am so happy to see that Nuqat is active in providing workshops in the field of art

Last month workshop was about Light and Calligraphy, this month they are conducting a food photography workshop called (Feeding the Eyes) , very attractive title

It will be held at the new restaurant Al-Makan in Kuwait City, on the 12 - 13 February 2015 by Kulsum Kunwa and Chef Faisal Al-Nashmi

couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw Kulsum's pictures on her blog Journey Kitchen, such strong and vivid images. I guess the trick in making food photos attractive is in the blue plates and toolscattered here and there :p 

If you are going to register in this workshop I'm sure you will learn a trick or 2 on how to take mouth watering pictures. I'm not a fan of food photography, but you have to visit her blog and enjoy the images

When we were in London





I know it has been a while since I posted something on the blog, so coming back to it I decided to share with you my experience in the hotels I've stayed in, and maybe some other people's experiences, because I would love to keep them in here as a record in case I need them in the future to book a hotel.

Today I will be starting with our short trip of 4 days to London, it was in on 25th of February 2014

We were looking for something new that is close to a shopping area

Belgraves Hotel was our choice, it opened in Feb 2012 and it was the first European property for the Thompson Hotels in the US


We really liked that its just 10 minutes walk to Harrods, we also liked our room although it was tiny tiny, all you do is just sleep in it, so if you are looking for something big, I don't think it would be a good choice. We booked the King Deluxe.




This is the shower behind this metal curtain, I was with my husband at the time , so that wasn't a problem, but if I was traveling with someone else and I had to share the room, I think I would be checking on this with the hotel, I'm not sure if all the rooms are like that.








The first day we arrived to the hotel from the airport, my husband was getting the luggage out from the Taxi and a man came rushing in to help him and he was like "no no thank you" and he looked at me like, why is this man helping me? go call the staff, I was like, he is one of the hotel's staff :) he was a young man dressed in a checked shirt and jeans, my husband confused him with a regular man from the street.

I think they dressed them up like this because the hotel is part of an American hotel chain




I remember having coffee every night we come back to the hotel, in an area that is one floor above the reception, we didn't take pictures of the place but it looks similar to the picture above, Love the atmosphere , so cozy and warm.



Their restaurant looks nice as well, we just had breakfast in it once, and it wasn't that good, I think if you're in London, you could skip breakfast and go straight to lunch. 


Would I book in this hotel again? definatly yes

Date night









Dinner at my favorite restaurant Peacock then coffee at Sky Lounge, this is my first time at the rooftop lounge in Radisson Blu Hotel, I think its a great place for friends to hang out, if they are looking for a quiet atmosphere with relaxing music to chat and catch up.

They are open from 10:00 am until 10:00 pm, good that night their last order was at 10:30 pm as we arrived late after dinner. We learned that they serve Japanese food as well, starting from 7:00 pm, must try it someday.  


Dress: Vivetta 
I got mine from Lime Light at The Avenues Mall, and asked them to make the sleeves slimmer, as they were too wide and made of a scuba material that make them stick out (see original dress in picture below)




Shoes: Pierra Hardy you could also find them here or here

Boklah





Boklah is a website where you could find salon offers in and book an appointment through calling the salon.

Lots of people didn't know it was my project, they thought I was just advertising for the company

From now on I'm going to document everything happens to Boklah in here, as my diary and for readers to know about new features and new things added to Boklah

Just now I have sent a request for 99designs.com to create a flyer for Boklah that explains how it works for customers

Those flyers will be available in salons that are Boklah members

Now we have 7 days to see what the designers will come up with, hope it looks good
