Knowing The Baby’s Gender with Sugar Box Bakery

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

That Feeling

Have you ever had this week where everything goes wrong, much more than you expected, leaving you high and dry and depressed, thinking that nothing in this world would cheer you up again and that you really hit rock bottom this tim.

And then all of a sudden, this thing happens!… that phone call, message , good news or awesome news to be exact.. it could be karma… or something you put so much effort trying to figure out and ended up thinking you were wrong about but turns out you were completely right about!

That exact moment would lift you out from your rock bottom over the moon… and you’ll be all happy and excited about life all over again. Not only that moment changed how you felt waking up that day, but it makes you regret all the misery you have put your soul into for the last few days or weeks.

That moment will make you feel fuzzy and cuddly filled with pink emotions all day long…

That moment you wish it would happen every day. But if it did… it wouldn’t have the same reflex… its so special in that way …it doesn’t last but you keep it last in your mind reminiscing about it for a while will keep you going on…

good night

The packaging is really great, with a few printed shots and a CD that had all the finished pictures. Make sure to give her a try for any of your family photos.

Thought Of The Day: Why Not!

Why not put the kids to sleep on put everything that makes a sound on silent mode tonight and indulge in a hot bubble bath, light a candle or two and take a long stress free hour in the tub.

Try to add a couple of lavender drops to that bath or to your oil burner.

Give your self a face massage or a foot massage and relax. Put on a face mask.

After that go straight to bed. You’ll be surprise in the next day of how good you slept  and how refreshed and happy you look:)

Why Not! :)

Hair Salon Crisis In K-Town

hair_salon_shutterstock_126

 

In all my visits to salons in Kuwait weather for hair treatments,styling,cutting or dying , I have never went through any of that without being in an unbearable pain.The hair dresser or her assistance handle my hair like a rag ,as if its not attached to my scull! I swear to god ,not even once that I did not feel any pain while they work on my hair. And I honestly started to think that I’m too sensitive and this is how things should go in salons and that I just have to take it and shut up.

But deep down inside I know that a professional hair stylist should know how to take extra care of my hair weather while washing it, brushing it or styling it. She should know that my hair is as precious to me as any other part of my body. styling does not necessarily means hair damage to a professional.

Well that all was clear to me when I  visited a salon in Dubai to get my hair washed for I forgot my shampoos at home and I have just got my hair coloured ,so I really did not want to risk washing it with the hotel shampoo.  I went to a ladies salon and of course like most salons in Dubai the staff  are professional hair dressers with actual degrees. I washed my hair and blow dried it. I swear I did not feel any pain !not even once ,weather while washing my hair or  while blow drying it. I actually enjoyed the gentle hair wash with the head massage . She treated my hair with respect , just like a HAIRDRESSER should!

Then I remembered all the horrible pain I went through in salons in Kuwait and realised I was right all that time! It’s frustrating that we pay a lot of money for salons here and not get the service we want. hairdressers here in Kuwait have no educational background of the beauty field and sometimes no trainings at all. they would wash your hair like a dirty rag with no care to the damage of hair or the pain they put you through.

Now That You’re Two

Two years ago you came into our lives and filled it with joy and blessing.Two years ago you came and changed our life drastically, everything became all about you and our worlds became revolved around you. Every step I take with you is for you, you became my life and my everything.

You filled my heart with love for I have never loved anything so much in my life. You are a true blessing.

I thank Alla for having the chance to watch you grow every single day and hold your hand while taking every tiny step of the way. I thank him when I wake up every morning to your big naughty smile. I thank him when you fall asleep in my arms and pray that he would protect you and help me be a good mother to you.

I wish you all the happiness in the world. May Alla never show you harm or sorrow as long as you live and grow up to be the amazing person I know you will be.

Happy Birthday my dearest Mishari

Love, Mom

Traveling Car Seats

Traveling with a toddler is not an easy job, well not for me I guess:/ last time we traveled with Misho it was really exhausting to me especially with no car seat on long drives! yes trust me a car seat would make a huge difference.

But now that he is older and a bit more independent I think it would be easier, but still I think  car seat is an essential and safer.

When we rented a car in Dubai last time we asked for a car seat, that we also have to pay extra for, in the car but when we arrived there they told us they didn’t have any available one and I had to sit him on my lab. It wasn’t comfortable for both of us, specially that the rides are longer there, while in Kuwait it takes almost 10 min to get anywhere.

So I searched the web to find traveling car seats and found some great ones, too bad I don’t know if they sell them here in Kuwait…
