There is nothing I adore more than baking pizza at home. It reminds me of my childhood, when I used to sneak to the kitchen and grab handfuls of grated mozzarella cheese while the pizza was being prepared. I usually almost always have pizza ingredients
Westfield Stratford City isn’t new per-say, Europe’s largest shopping mall was opened in September 2011, but I’ve never had the chance to actually make the trip before. When I finally did taking the Jubilee line, I realised it is indeed very huge, complete with a Holiday Inn hotel next door.
Ever wondered how the contents of the Nespresso capsule brings you joy every morning by producing your coffee fix? I had very few limited edition Dark Chocolate Nespresso capsules left in my possesion and I was being very stingy with them. One day the inevitable happened and my machine chewed up the capsule somehow and [...]
A while back I was browsing different instagram profiles when I came upon a mouth-watering picture of a white sponge fruit cake. I’m a sucker for a good food picture, it can do wonders to my cravings so I checked out the rest of the pictures in that instagram profile. Not only were the pictures [...]
When I passed by Shakshooka farmers market a while ago (post), one of the things I got for myself was a jar of wrapped sweets. I frankly just grabbed it when it was laid on the table when I knew it was “caramels” and I’m not a big fan of caramels. Fudge, yes, caramel OK [...]
Superman was my favourite childhood superhero. I grew up watching Superman movies, one movie in particular the Superman III we watched over and over and over again whenever we had a meal. My father was a big Superman fan and he bought us all the VHS tapes except for Superman III which he recorded off [...]
Growing up in the 80′s meant watching a lot of Egyptian movies and TV serieses. Whenever I was watching and they had breakfast, I’d wish I was joining them at the table and eating from their breakfast, always plates laden with food and people sharing. Therefore when I knew that the modernised Egyptian-themed restaurant C-omar [...]
The count down to the holy month of Ramadan has started and I cannot wait for that special time of year to be here, but I know for sure that the one thing I will miss most is having breakfast in the morning. Hence, I’m trying to have a lavish breakfast whenever the occasion rises. [...]
Last May I was in Kuwait International Airport for the first time in many months, perhaps since October 2012, when I noticed a familiar white W and H on a blue background near passport control. I had to blink, for I thought I saw WH Smith’s logo on a bookshop in the airport and then [...]
I remember seeing the trailer of Now You See Me before watching one of the movies earlier this past May. When I saw what they were up to -in the trailer- I knew I wanted to watch it ASAP! What more could you ask for? A start studded cast -Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher-, [...]
The best thing after visiting a farmers market like Shakshooka’s (post) chockfull of delicious items is the meal that follows. In my case, it was a scrumptious Friday breakfast prepared using some of the best produce Kuwait has to offer!
A friend of mine wanted to send me samples of her new home business to try and give my feedback so on Friday two big white bags arrived at my door from Cacao Sweets waiting to be tried and tested. The first bag had a
One of my personality traits is my inability to resist any beauty product that comes with with an anti-aging or anti-wrinkle label. I’m bordering on obsession really, I have tried many products in an attempt to stop ageing signs since I refuse to acknowledge that I’m grown up and -gulp- middle aged. I also am [...]
