A few days ago I received two big brown bags chock full of baby blue boxes from a new bakery in town, The Pastry Shop.
Yesterday we were invited to a Ramadan ghabga and I was thinking what to take with us. Then as I was browsing instagram I saw some Nuttella Muhalabiya and Nuttella Kanafa and Nuttella Basboosa by Hayoni’s Kitchen. I’ve tried them
Yesterday we hosted the first Ramadan ghabga in our new apartment and we had so much fun! There is nothing better than a cosey home gathering with good food, good company, and laughter. The best thing is that it didn’t take much effort at all, just place
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
The date for Ramadan’s most anticipated Expo is set. The White Expo will be held from the 29th till the 31 of July 2012 in the Exhibition hall of 360 Mall. I personally cannot wait, I already have a shopping list waiting for those ten days to pass by so I can tick it off […]
Last week I received a Ramadan gift and an invitation to attend 52 Degree’s Ramadan exhibition for home accessories and dara’as (post). What I didn’t expect though is
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 […]
One of my GCC blogger friends once told me about a “Batates Oman” sandwich they adore. Apparently you fill two pieces of toast with the chips, drizzle hot sauce and Kraft spreadable cheese, and eat them and the combination is so good. The thing is, I’ve never seen the Chips Oman before in my life and never […]
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
Ayar Perfumes is a new business by young Kuwaitis. For Ramadan they are providing a very nice, sleek, acrylic box with Mbarak 3lekom Elshahar engraved on it. I received one myself last week.
52 degrees sent out a lovely Ramadan gift plus Ramadan event invitation in this big nostalgic bag.
I received quite an unusual invitation to a new exhibition, Sukkar Ramadan, in the form of a big chocolate bar with the invitation detail printed on the wrapping.
I had just arrived home yesterday when my door bell rang. Suddenly, there was a huge early Ramadan gift basket from Gloria Jean’s coffee. I had a flashback of the Ramadan gift basket I had received last year (post). With the gift basket came a
I’m a person who cannot resist samboosa. Given that I can polish off a platter of samboosa without looking twice, I limit myself to having it during Futoor in Ramadan and having it only baked instead of fried. Therefore, I have this
Last Thursday while enjoying a nice cosey night at home there was a knock on the door and a box of desserts from a new Kuwaiti business was delivered to me.
Last week one of my dear friends came over for dinner. I was really excited given that I had a few things I wanted to try out and let me say it must have been the easiest dinner I’ve ever put together! The first thing I put out is, of course, flowers.
Its been really a long time since I’ve walked around aimlessly in TSC and checked out their new merchandise. Luckily, being on a nice summer break last week allowed me to do that again which I have truly missed. Now lets see what I found that might be interesting. First, remember
Most of you by know have either encountered the lovely designs of “Pieces by Farah” or already purchased them for your homes or Ramadan. After receiving my PBF bowls (post) I waited patiently for my PBF set of esteknas -tea cups- to arrive and they finally did a few
Ever since I’ve first set foot in Dubai mall, I’ve cast long sad glances at the bottom of its spectacular fountains and wished I could sit as close to the fountain’s pool as I could. Sadly, the only two restaurants with tables overlooking that area were Entercoute
About two weeks ago I received an email from a home business selling what they call “Tidy Tilt” iPhone covers. I wasn’t really interested until I googled it and realized its not your basic boring old
Last week Boots Kuwait had sent me over a couple of their No. 7 skin products to try last week.
I love it when I see local events coming up with the cutest most unique invitations! This time I received an invitation from Miss Noaf Hussein, the girl behind Pretty Little Things expo (post) and this invitation is quite different indeed, it was
A few days ago I received an email from the ladies behind the annual White Expo inviting me to a small meeting to familiarize the bloggers with their exhibition. Not that their exhibition needs any familiarizing, who hadn’t heard about The White Expo? Frankly it is one of the expos I look forward to every year.
