The Dinner Party

Image
My sister's friend (BD) invited us last night to a small dinner party in their house. It was only the 2 of us and her 3 sisters. Ohhhhh I love her sisters, they are so funny when they have a conversation with each other, the terms they use and the expressions they make, is just hilarious, when I'm around them I always find my self trying to imitate them when telling a story, but I just can't be like them. Let me tell you what I mean by the terms they use...one of them was talking about a girl she hates in her class at the university, and she felt like killing her for saying something stupid, then all of them screamed " FLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET" meaning you should kill her like a bug with a fleet.

Pepsi cubes, instead of ice cubes (water), so it will not melt and ruin your Pepsi Why didn't I think of that before We had candle light dinner, ahhh so relaxing

I really enjoyed my time, thank you BD for the lovely evening.

I brought my canvas

Image
Yesterday my sister and I went to bring my canvas that I bought from Dubai from Gallery One. it was an adventure. I had to take my brother's car (Tawariq - VW) so my canvas can fit in, it was like 1.7 meters long.

I did the stretching in Giclee Gallery in Galleria 2000 in Salmiya, and as you all know, there is no parking in Galleria and I hate to give the car to the Valet, so I parked in Mariam Complex.


Michel Jackson dies on friday and they hang his picture the next day in the shop
midahoom !!!!


thank god it fits perfectly inside the back of the car with the back seats down, if it was 5 cm longer it wouldn't get in.




At home When I opened the wrapping I was amazed by their work. it was neat and clean, not like my old canvases that I made in bou Shehri. at first I thought 35 KD is to much but now I don't.

I have 2 screws on the wall, so I adjusted the hooks to fit the screws that I already have. and this is the end result ..tadaaa

Funny Prada Pictures

Image
The 2 above pictures are taken from the spring / summer 2009 Prada look book, they are normal, there is nothing special about them... but when I saw these (below) I luaghed my heart out, because I didn't expect to see something like this in a look book, they scared me a little bit :) Loved them .




This is written on the cover: "An exploration of the collection's domain of inspiration by AMO: divinity, tribalism and primitive symbolism - graphically represented through the dialogue of references between fashion and imagery"

I'm going to do my own necklace

Image
I received an email the other day from Ideeli.com telling me about their sale on Vera Wang's necklace, it used to cost $750 and now it's available for $199 only. I immediately logged in their website and added the necklace in my basket, but then I got a massage telling me that the sale will start in 15 minutes. I waited 15 minutes and pressed the 'add it to my basket' button again, but this time I got another massage telling me that I can't buy this necklace now, it's only available for first line members, come in after 54 minutes, but when the 54 minutes passed the item was already sold out :( I wanted a big necklace like this from a long time, but I don't want to pay KD 200 for something I will wear 2 or 3 times. yesterday I came home and found my sister taking off crystals out of our old chandelier, that means she has a new project working on. at that moment I remembered my lovely necklace that I couldn't get and decided to do my own.

I know the crystal…

Here is my brand new Nespresso Machine
I have used it in Dubai and fell in love with it instantly. It was easy to use, just drop the capsule into the machine, press the button and voila ... you have your espresso. one of the reasons why I got the machine and started drinking espresso is the cute colorful coffee capsules (picture below)



Another reason is .......

Here you can see all types of coffee they have, the strength of each type, acidity, bitterness and stuff like that.


I also got a cappuccino maker, the one on the right.
