The Long Friday

On Friday my friends and I decided to have breakfast at Prime and Toast (next to burger hub) maybe this is my first breakfast ever, OK I eat breakfast but only at work or if we are traveling, but on a Friday (sleeping day) never.

It was fun, there were lots of people sitting outside, we thought it was little bit windy so we sat in. I had french toast ... yummy (wish I had 2) one of my friends ordered omelet and the other one order a Mexican thing I don't know it's name.

After that we want to our family gathering and in the afternoon we decided to go to Al-Zomoruda, where Villa Moda have their old stuff on sale there (up to 90%). My family just wanted to see the place and leave, I wanted to stay more and examine each and every garment ,they got dizzy from all the decoration inside Al-Zumoruda. I bought earrings that look like bones - picture below - and when I got home and wore them my ears started itching that I had to take them off :(

After that we went to the Lounge in Al-bidi3 had some coffee and got back home. I slept, maybe for 1 hour, got up at 10 with my laptop in hand and sat next to mum checking out what's new in all online shops. ordered some stuff and went crazy over some, below...



you can find them all in Browns . after that I wanted to watch Lost but the download did not finish, so I decided to watch it online , although I hate watching Lost online because I don't want to miss the detail but I just can't wait. Finished watching it at 3 am , got lost as usual and went to sleep.
The end.

changeling


Brava Angi Brava, her performance was remarkable. to me she had transformed into a different character. The movie is 2 hours and 20 minutes I didn't even felt that. the second part of the movie had gone into unexpected turn. I don't want to ruin the film for those of you who didn't see it so I will just say that Jason Butler Harner was phenomenal, too bad he wasn't nominated for best supporting actor.
It's a heart breaking story and a nerve rack, If you have the guts to watch those kind of movies you HAVE to see this one.
I just have one question (for those who saw it) why did they call it Changeling?
they should have called it (My son) don't you think? :)

out for dinner


Today I went out for dinner with my brother and I had a wonderful time. We were planning to go to Altissimo Italian restaurant in (Naser Tower) near Sheraton hotel but then we decided to go to a Japanese restaurant instead called Satchi at the back of Sheraton hotel. the place is too quite I hate this atmosphere, but that didn't matter since I was enjoying my brother's company , we haven't seen each other for 2 weeks, I mean sit and talk, he is always busy with work and CFA course he is taking at night and I'm always coming home late in the afternoon from work and sleep most of the time.
The food was fine, we ordered some maki's and for the main course I ordered Duck, I loved the sauce that comes with it, exactly like trader vic's sauce that comes with the beef, I don't know what it's called but it was delicious. my brother ordered ravioli (they also serve Italian cuisine) it was scary, a black ravioli..yakeee it does not look good he ended up eating with me. after that I told him I wanted to see this altissimo restaurant let's have a cappuccino there ... and we went, it was in the 15 floor or something that you can look over the city from the restaurant. I had the feeling like I was in Kuwait towers. although the interior is waaaaay different, this one has a modern touch and Kuwait towers hmmm you know so old fashion.
we came back at 12:00 , I didn't even felt that 3 hours have gone by.
I'm going to explode from all the food I ate.
PS: Today I had launch at slider station...so you can imagine the amount of food I had.... offffff , like a pregnant women in her third month

Harajuku girls are here

Finally Harajuku Lovers Solid Fragrances are here. I have ordered them like a month ago. they are so cute. The fragrance? not so good, all of them smell the same with a little difference, like one feels like coconut, another one like baby powder and another like a very very old perfume you used to have when you were 14, but all of that doesn't matter I just love the way they look, I'm thinking of making them brooches :)

Jon and Kate plus 8


My sister and I can't stop watching this documentary about a man and his wife who had twin girls and decided to get pregnant for a third child and got six instead (sextuplets) 3 girls and 3 boys.

I remember seeing them first on Oprah talking about how they decided to film their lives, but never thought of buying the DVDs from Amazon until we saw one episode of the show in Hong Kong. We got season 1 and 2 season 3 is not out yet. Unfortunately the ones we have are only 2 DVD's and we are trying as hard as we can to hold our selves from watching them all . The kids are sooo cute and funny, even their parents are funny on the way they handle things. you have to see them.

watch a part of the show Link

My shoes


Someone bought my shoes :('''''''''''
Today I went to the avenues to find that someone had bought size 37.5
why ??? why my size?
36 is there
37 also there
and 38 too

Obsessed with shoes

yes I am obsessed with shoes, I can't get enough of them, today I went to Scarpe shop in avenues because my aunt wanted to check out their 50% sale and because she have never been there. I wish I didn't go with her I saw the shoes that I wanted to try a very very long time ago, try not buy, try , because they were out of this world, never seen anything like them before and wanted to know how it feels to wear shoes with out heels. do you know what shoes I'm talking about? Marc Jacob's shoes (picture below) uhhhhhhh aren't they lovely? I made a big mistake when I decided to think....think about WHAT???? they were comfortable and the color is perfect, goes with everything.

this style
but in this color
Well the decision "to think" came when the lady told us that the shoes are from the summer collection of 2008, meaning 2 seasons back so I thought to myself "I can't buy a 98KD shoes,I know I can find a better deal if I looked online, they should be 75% off not 50%". It was a mistake, I spent 2 hours looking for them with no luck. all I found are the ones in picture above and they cost more than 90 KD. I have to go back and get them before someone else buys them... please ...to whom ever is reading this post , please don't buy my shoes I wear a size 37.5 leave these ones for me , I have to go back and get them.

Almubarakiya

I didn't have time to write about our trip to Almubarakiya 2 weeks ago, but now I have, so the story goes like this...
One of our relatives were telling us about this place in mubarakiya called (Al-Shaye' Basment - سرداب الشايع) where you can find lots of wholesale items and fake designer bags and clothes. So we decided to go since my sister wanted to to buy a large quantity of plastic headbands and I wanted some fake juicy couture track suites to wear for home.

We went down to the basement from (Souk al-Zal & Al-Bshoot) entrance, there were so many shops that sell make-up and cheap watches in there, we kept looking for our shop until we found it (sorry can't remember it's name) and it had a big collection of fake bags , I wanted to take picture but the place was too crowded and the owner of the shop was there too.
The funny part is that they not only have fake bags they have the latest fake bags, we saw a Prada cruise clutch (picture below). I asked for the price and the salesman replied 80KD, I was like what ?????? why!!! no it's too much then he said " ok ok 60" then we looked at each other smiling and I said " ok I will think about it" I thought about it when I got home and surfed the net, it was well made but there is no green color !!! have you seen this clutch in green? top is brown and baig with a green bottom. any ways we asked about the juicy and he had to go and get them from the storage room so we waited for 15 minutes until he came back, they were ok but i wanted more colorful suits, pink or yellow. all they have are black , dark purple and olive suites, and they weren't cheap, 35 KD, I thought they will like 10 or 20 KD max.
in the same shop , you can find Hermes and Chanel wallets, Cartier love bracelets, Balanciaga bags and lots lots more.


So we left the shop, laughing about the collection they have and got in one of those make-up shops and bought me a huge shadow palette for 5 KD .



Did you notice what attracted me to this palette? The neon color shadows :) can you see the yellow and green ones in picture above ? don't know how I'm going to apply these colors but I'll find a way :P

Then on our way out we found a tinny shop that was filled with people asking the salesman for Burberry and Ralph's polos so we went in and I found these lovely juicy couture accessories, all 3 pieces for 5 KD , isn't that nice ? :) don't they look like juicy ? my friend made fun of them saying they look hideous, uhh that was ok, I liked them very much and I'm wearing them all the time .
Now comes the second part
We came home, and I can't sleep until I find the place where they get all this stuff from. I searched the web and searched and search till I found one.... i Offer .com

The sites sells all sort of fake stuff, my whole quest was for juicy suites, and there were hundreds of companies that sells them, and you won't believe for how much, 5 KD for a suite. 30 KD difference from al mubarakiya and maybe 80 KD difference from the original, as if original, the originals are made in china. So they are original.

So I found some and decided to try i offer, but to do so I had to register first, so I did, I chose the ones I want. I thought all I have to do next is add them to my basket and pay, it turns out that it's not that easy, it's a Bargaining place. you chose what you want , wait for the seller to reply to your message , give you the final price, either you agree or not, and if the item will be shipped to Kuwait it will be 10 KD more.

I thought we will be getting a bunch of suites for my cousins and I in like 15 minutes , but it took me 3 days to understand the process and finalize it. I ordered 2 suites only, 1 for my sister and 1 for my cousin. just to try them out first and then I will get some for myself.

Pasta Salad

I'm sure you are now looking at the picture and saying to yourself "where is the pasta?" right? well I ate it all, but they were like 6 pieces only, the rest is all rocket. I could not believe it, I dug in looking for some more inside but none was found, I couldn't finish it, I couldn't eat plain rocket, even the cheese was not enough. Beware don't order pasta salad from second cup. bad experience :(

Digital Magazine

If you are a person who can't wait for a magazine to be out in news stands, then you will love Zinio, it's where you can subscribe to your favourite magazines and get them the moment they are out by downloading them, and that is what a Digital Magazine means. and the fun part is you don't have to pay 5 KD for an issue, it's going to cost you as low as 3 KD for 12 issues...yes only 3KD, isn't that amazing? some of them cost more but not more than 10KD for 12 issues.

I'm now subscribed to a bunch of fashion and decor magazines, like Bazaar, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Marie Clair, Elle decor and metropolitan. you can find all sort of titles, business,food and cooking, computers and lots lots more.
