Barcelona

Image
We just arrived in Barcelona, and we are getting ready to explore. The past couple days I couldn't write to you guys because there was no Internet connection at home, the Internet provider company is very bad in France, they need like 2 weeks to install the thing. I came to Barcelona thinking "Finally I'm going to have Internet connection" brought every single charger I own and forgot to bring my laptop charger.... offfff I hate it when that happens , so no blogging till god knows when.

Spin art

Image
On my cousin's birthday the kids made these lovely colorful designs using a spinning art machine, where they drop paint on a spinning paper and create original art. Each one is unique I love them all, I just can't stop looking at them.





So they will not go to waste I decided to patch them all up in one large frame where I can look at them all the time.

OHHHH MYYYY GOOOOOOOOOOD iPod nano has RADIO. It's like a dream come true, just the other day I was telling my friends how bored I am from the songs I have on my iPod, I don't have time to download music, but now, with radio, no need to be bored again :)

There is an amazing feature in it that lets you pause when listening to radio with a click. Huh just what I want
Not only that you can even shoot high-quality video with your nano

D&G Ads Link I LOVE George Michael's song Freedom, the one featured in the Ad. I can't stop listening to it LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT ahhhh and don't forget Too Funky song too

Me like Igor + Andre blog

Image
Danny Roberts is a young artist who has a blog that he posts his work on every now and then, most of his art work revolves around models and fashion. I love how he draws circles on his subject's face (his trade mark).
Now he has a lot of art projects and collaborations with companies, good luck Danny on that. He also draws bloggers that he likes and finds them inspirational, like my favorite blogger Jane of Sea of Shoes (picture above) Danny's blog: Igor + Andre

Hoss Boutique is now OPEN

Image
We went to the avenues today in the afternoon, I thought the place will be empty, specially phase 2 but there were lots of people shopping at that time, I think most of them are looking for Eid outfits.

Hoss Boutique is at the Avenues Mall (Phase 2) next to Patchi

Photoshoot

Image
My cousin brought her clothes and stuff into my little studio and we spent 2 hours photo shooting, it was fun and specially when we played with the brightness and contrast of the shoots.

Ibrah bought the replica

Image
See how poorly it is made

Below is the conversation that went between the salesman and my sister (from now on I'm going to call her Ibrah)

Ibrah: where did you get this headband from?
Salesman: we got it from a a salesman, you can find it in other shops
Ibrah: what salesman? Did you make this?
Salesman: we made this from a catalogue
Ibrah: don't lie to me, I make these headbands, there is no catalogue. How much for one headband?
Salesman: 3.5 KD
Ibrah: I will take it for 1 KD
Salesman: noooo , I give you 2 for 4 KD
Ibrah: who says I want 2 I said 1

At the end she got it for 1.5 KD and she went to all the shops near by, no one has them.

Ibrah's Replica

Image
Yes ...

what you are looking at right now is a replica of Ibrah's headbands:)

bel3arabe TAGLEEEEEED





Our dear friend H saw these the other day in Al-Blokat (Fabric Market in Kuwait), she was so shocked that she forgot to ask how much they were. You should have seen the look on my sister's face, eyes wide open @@
Surprisingly she was happy that she is being imitated, but the question is: how did they know about her headbands? Did they see picture of them?



Ibrah ... my sister, is thinking of buying it and investigating the matter... I'll tell you all about it enshallah :)

Shop D&G store

Image
I liked this red bag from D&G but didn't find it in their online store, they have it only in gold (see first picture in the middle)

Searched Luisa via romaand found 2 satin bags covered with crystals uhhhhhhh
Don't know if I want satin!!!! Anyways it was pre-order - arrival in September 30th, which means I won't be in Kuwait at that time, if I find it in Geneva and it looks good in reality I might take it.
