Our Trip to Villa Moda - in Brief

Image
My mum and I went to Villa Moda(free trade zone) to check out the 50% sale, hoping we will find something worth buying. We went in the evening and it wasn't that crowded. we found some lovely pieces, mostly from multi brand section. I would love to go in detail about what we found but I have no time, I have an Italian test tomorrow and I didn't study for it and I have to sleep early too (How I'm going to do that I don't know). Ciao Ragazzi (translation: bye guys) Dress in picture: Sinha Stanic - price tag (after sale) KD 223

Furniture

Shuwaikh shop
I wanted to write about this place called Westwood Heritage along time ago, but I just forgot about it. They have some beautiful things , most of their furniture is classic, nothing in there is modern. They are located in Shuwaikh, Ghazali street (route 60) and their telephone number is 2475 1237 .They also have another shop in Salwa, but I don't know the address.

Oula's new paying system

Image
I saw this machine today at Oula's gas station, when I asked the man what was it for? he said it's a machine where you can pay cash or through K-net to fill up car and it will be used after 2 months. There will be no cashiers in booths anymore. I don't know how we, girls are going to use it? are we going to get out of our cars and go pay ? or are we going to give the man that fills the tank the money and he will insert it in the machine?

I want

This chandelier looks amazing, from Ikea, K.D. 34 . The balls feels like ping pong balls, I think it was inspired from Zia-Priven design .I would love to buy one but I have no place for it :(

Solid perfume

Image
Since Aramex and U Shop We Ship don't accept liquid stuff then I could order Harajuku Lovers Solid Fragrances instead, I have been waiting for ever for them. The collection cost K.D. 17 ($60) sold in Neiman Marcus. If I hated one of these fragrances I can always give it to my sister ;p

Love Lockdown

Image
"Love Lockdown" is a song that I fell in love with the moment I heard it on the radio, the beat is unbelievable. At first I thought it's a techno song, and belongs to some guy I don't know, but when I searcher for it based on the lyrics I was shocked to find out that it is Kanye West's song....MY GOD totally not Kanye. I just saw the video ... too strange, (not safe for work) click here if you wanna watch it, no wait,let me rephrase, YOU HAVE TO SEE IT . but if you hate the video, just close your eyes and enjoy the song.

pages from a magazine

Image
Every summer when we start doing our luggage to get back to Kuwait, I sit down and tear up pages of things I like out of magazines I bought on that summer, so I'll just have what I want instead of taking all of the magazines and have extra wight in my bag, but some how I always end up having the heaviest no matter how hard I try.
Any way, these are some of the pages I found couple of days ago of photo shoots I liked very much, unfortunately I don't know from which magazine.

Lovely Karen Millen Dresses

Image
Today I passed by Karen Millenin Al-Fanar Complex and I couldn't believe the collection of dresses they have. The colors the styles and the material are so amazing, I have to try one of them on, and when I did ... ohhhh it looked perfect , I have put some pictures in here but they don't look good, in reality they are much better with rich colors. You know what else is good? the prices, they are shocking, most of the dresses are around K.D. 80. Without thinking I took the blue dress below . There is another color of this dress but unfortunately they don't have my size, the only ones left are size 14 and 16 (UK) .you have to go and see them if you have an occasion coming up, If you don't find your size you can always buy online .


The only size left of this shoe is 41, it reminded me of Prada shoes from fall collection 2008 with ruffles.
