Dear Al-Zain posted the following sentence on her instagram page yesterday, ”State what do you believe in with one word”. It got me thinking of what I believe in that is usually disputable and hence I decided to share and see if
Good Thursday morning! The weekend is
The last movie I’ve seen in 2012 was “The Life of Pi”. The story about a teenage boy who immigrated from India with his family and the animals of their zoo on board a Japanese ship heading to Montreal only to become lost at sea with the company of a tiger, a vicious
I’ve never heard about either Julie or Julia before I saw the movie “Julie/Julia” on board a BA plane heading to London. Its become a favorite movie of mine and I’ve seen it 20 times since, last time was a last weekend btw. Intrigued, I got myself both the
The thing I love about Peter Jackson’s adaptations of LOTR is that its consistency with the actual book. You see it as you’ve read it with very minor changes here and there. In my humble opinion the LOTR movie trilogy was one of the most successful book-movie adaptations ever therefore when I saw that The Hobbit was going to [...]
I’ve always had a thing for greeting cards and stationary stores. One of my sheer joys when going abroad is spending an hour or so in stationary stores, looking at different quirky greeting cards and gift wrapping supplies. I always stock up when
A while ago we’ve been talking about having a cosey casual movie night at home with the girls. Nothing fancy, just some popcorn, take away food, and a nice movie to watch. Preparations for this day were next to nothing: A trip to the Co-Op, a Trip to TSC for the chips, arranging stuff around [...]
A while ago I received a very cute invitation for a VIP treatment at a newly opened Express Hair Blow Dry Salon located in
Though not a Leonardo Di Caprio fan myself, I loved him performance and role in the 2002 movie “Catch Me if You Can”. I knew it was based on a true story and I’ve seen the movie many times but it never occurred to me that there actually is a book where the story originates from. Then [...]
When my husband dragged me to the cinema to watch Brave I had pursed my lips and decided that I would be having a bad time. But I had to
That’s why the blog was neglected, I was in my favorite city in the world for two weeks. I thought I’d share some of my favorite summer 2012 London trip pictures during which the
As I was browsing IKEA 2013 long awaited and much beloved catalouge that was distributed a while ago, I noticed a funny blunder on page 152 which is supposed to be a picture of a living room with middle eastern design touches. You see on the top left corner of the page there is a mubkhar [...]
A weird habba has been hanging on Kuwaiti girls wrists for a while now, something that reminds me of the 80s, a retro golden Casio digital watch. Back in 2010 I saw retro Timex watches in Selfridges and wrote a post about would you wear one of these (post) I guess now it has indeed [...]
Its no secret that I am a big fan of Fatima Al-Othman and her amazing designs “f2o Designs“. I love them so much I’ve had her illustrate my cherished Dathra and her two -and insha2 Allah third- book covers (post). Most of us have seen
Last week I received a very cute invitation + Ramadan nuqsa from the newly opened Fursa store (post). The event was yesterday and it was my first time visiting Fursa.
Continuing here from Part I of the Dathra Book Launch 80′s Party (post), for drinks we had soft drinks, Se77a bottled water (may 9e77a), sunkist -which was very popular-.
For some reason wordpress is eating up my Party post. I’ve written it three times already!!! It could be because its too long so I’ll have to sadly break it down and re-post it I bet everyone with an instagram had already seen -and felt like being invited to- the Dathra Book party I had at [...]
I didn’t want the launch of my 2nd book to be a quiet affair but I had no hopes of a book signing given that the timing is not right at all (summer, Ramadan, etc.) so I thought why not throw a cosey dinner party at my place? The decision to throw a
The book is FINALLY done and out for sale! This time it took almost a month from publishing date to hit the market! Woah! If you are in Kuwait you can find a copy in 52 Degrees for the time being and will be on sale in other places soon.
