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

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:

I have always been a fan of children’s section in IKEA, actually most of Meshari’s furniture and toys are from there. I think they are child friendly and educational. IKEA Kuwait is now participating in their world wide campaign that allows children in countries of poverty get the education they need.

Ikea foundation is supporting children in developing countries with the annual Soft Toy for Education campaign by funding education programs run by Save the Children and UNICEF.

From November 9th 2014 until January 3ed 2015, for every IKEA soft toy, the IKEA Foundation will donate one euro to education programs around the world supported by UNICEF and Save the Children. Also applies to online purchases.

The Soft Toys for Education campaign aims to provide quality education to children living in poverty in developing countries. Since the campaign started in 2003, education from annual IKEA Soft Toy campaign have totalled 67 million euros, helping more than 11 million children in 46 countries to enjoy their right to quality education.

Back TO The Blog

Hello there… long time no blogging huh? I don’t even know if anyone is anymore. Too bad we all shifted to Instagram and twitter, I really miss it ;-(

I even stopped reading blogs I don’t know why. Its not the same anymore. But recently I have read this really interesting blog (husband free) by a really courageous girl who shared her story after divorce and started reading her posts. She spoke for a lot of girls out there in the same situation. I like her spirit and her positive attitude about the whole experience and admire that she took the step to share her story with other people.

The joy of blogging and sharing your thoughts , good and bad, have gone with us being not anonymous anymore, I think. After all its a small country with a lot of judgemental people waiting for you to screwup. I try not to give it much thought but it is what it is and you cant escape it.

 

On My Mind Lately

stop-child-abuse4

 

It has become the norm in our society to have house keepers and nannies living at our homes. Its almost impossible to see a house with no maid in Kuwait. A lot of those house keepers or nannies , not all of them of course, are uneducated and come from a very rough life conditions. Some of them were abused and mistreated in their country and might have lots of psychological issues. We don’t know anything about  them or their back ground. And there we are having them in our houses living among us  and trust them with the most precious things we have “our children”.

Over the past few years we have heard the most horrifying stories about nannies abusing children sexually and some stories ended with the house maids murdering innocent babies. I have seen maids with an infant at the general hospital dropped by drivers to get a treatment for that ill baby! we have seen drivers abuse children in malls accompanied with nannies, no parents! babies are left every day all alone with these unqualified maids for long hours with no supervision.

Please note that the nannies job is to help us. Not to raise our children  this is our job. Don’t ever trust them 100% with your babies. Do not leave them with nannies all alone in houses unsupervised, ever. It would be a lot better to leave them at daycare if you have to work, at least they will be safer there with a lot of peoples to watch over them. if you had to leave them at home and had no choice but to do so ,you can always put nanny cams and feel free to tell the nanny that they are being watched.

Our children are the most precious things to our hearts, they are our responsibility, and if they got harmed by some one we will always be the one to blame.

The idea of this post came to me after an incident have happened to a relative of mine. She found out that her house keeper ,whom she considered to be her trusted one, stole thousands of KD’s from her safe over the year she had worked in their house.

Once again, What I’m saying does not apply to all house keepers and nannies. But here in Kuwait there are no standers or requirements of any education level for the maids that are brought into the country.Therefore you should be really careful and know who are you letting into your house and life.

All I wanted to say is please do not  give complete trust to strangers  when it comes to your children, homes and families.Please ,be safe.

Favorite Makeup Pieces

I have been shopping for some makeup lately and accidentally stumbled upon the Too Faced makeup section at Sephora . They used to bring few pallets before but now they got the whole thing!

I fell in love with this pallet ( All of My Favorite Things) the minute I saw it …

I love how their kits come with these small card with makeup looks suggestions..

Another thing that caught my eye are these heart shaped blushers…

I also saw this anti-feathering lipliner that prevents your lipstick from feathering out of your lips, this always happens to me with bright colors  like bright pink and specially red…

and last but not least I was very tempted to get this fiber mascara but didn’t. I liked the idea of it. You apply it before mascara to get fuller and longer lashes…
