What Can A Pregnant Woman Wear In Kuwait!?

download (2)


Now when I first got pregnant I knew I had to shop for new maternity cloths when I looked at my older ones they were worn out and the colours were just washed off. So I went to stores that I’ve shopped from in my previous pregnancy and found out this!…

Top Shop have removed their maternity section and so did H&M. I was so counting on getting my jeans and leggings from there. Went to mother care to find out that the maternity wear section have been shrunk to a tiny section which mostly included pj’s and things that only a 70 year old woman would wear !

Now I was stuck with Destination Maternity “which is the only store in Kuwait specialised in maternity wear” and also have the granny clothes issue going on. except for maybe a couple of pieces from Jessica Simpson’s collection which are really over priced for something thats gonna fit for a couple of months only…

I ended up not buying anything and going to shop online. while I was at it I found out that most store we have in the malls actually do include a maternity wear online. And if we do we have them, they are the worst collection that the market could offer.

The question is where shall a pregnant woman get her clothes from in this country?!  and why did the stores all of a sudden decided to remove pregnancy clothes from their stocks. Did we all of a sudden stop having babies here in Kuwait? I really don’t get it :-|

Icream Cafe a franchise brought to you from Chicago to Kuwait now is opened at Discovery mall !

whats different about this ice-cream shop is that there is actually no ice-cream ready to be served there. Your ice-cream is made right in front of you when you order from a selection of choices on their menu, from frozen yogurt to ice-cream and even pudding… you get to choose your flavor, mixes and toppings …

Its a first of a kind unique experience with nitrogen, where your ice-cream will form and freeze right in front of you in seconds.

I myself am an ice-cream lover and really liked it! whats not to like about ice-cream made with your choices down to the last details :love:

Knowing The Baby’s Gender with Sugar Box Bakery


We were approached by Sugar Box Bakery for a fun way to know what is the baby’s gender. All we had to do is ask the doctor to write down the gender and seal it in an envelope. We then gave Sugar Box Bakery the envelope and they baked a cake and the inside would tell us the gender depending on the colour.

Well, we had to make a little fuss about it. So we did it during our weekly family gathering and invited everyone to guess the gender by selecting a balloon. Once the gender was revealed, the wrong balloons would be popped. Well with the kids around all the balloons were popped.

Instawipes….You’ve been cleaned up


Well, the day has come where all has been revealed in front of our very own eyes. Yes the day where we know who wanted to be famous by faking it.

So we all have seen the celebrities who were affected by the Instagram fake/spam followers clean up that happened last week. It was pretty wild that day don’t you think?

Now lets set things straight, the number of followers was always the way for agencies to know how influential a celebrity is. Or to be exact that what they dreamed of. With that and the ad opportunity behind this, celebrities (or wanna be celebrities) wanted to get on that train as soon as possible so they do not miss an opportunity.

Influence is not about the number of followers. See the number of followers could be have more haters than lovers. People who just want you to slip and act on it. Influence is how much people trust you and believe you when you say something. Or even act upon something you ask them for. Influence comes with trust and not the total number of followers. On the other hand some people would think the number of “likes” is the influence. Again, you can actually buy likes now and I think even the likes decreased after the clean up.

The number of followers, the number of likes, the retweets, the blog or whatever social media “term” does not make you an expert. Social media is not something you teach in school or university. It’s not something you need a degree in. It’s not something that makes it a career.

Social media is a phase we are going through right now, an era. A decade ago your social media status was the number of MSN messenger friends you had. Before that was the IRC channels you are allowed in.

For me social media was always about sharing. Sharing your life with others. Even if it does not really show your real life…but pin points here and there. A place we usually share the “goods” and leave the bad hidden. It’s that nice cover we use.

This internet ego grew upon us. The number of followers gives you this “certificate” that you understand. It makes you think you are a specialist or a critic. Yet at the end its nothing but an opinion or taste. It’s only your taste in clothes, food or anything else. Yet when was the last time you have seen a Fashionista or Food expert post about something they do not like?

Week one: The best steak in Kuwait (restaurant 1)…OMG
Week two: The best steak in Kuwait (restaurant 2)…ufff 7ada 3ajeeeb

Instagram did not make people famous…People make people famous……

Got to Know When to Shut Up :D
