Last week, I visited The Taste of Kuwait Exhibition which was held at Mishref Fairgrounds. I received 2 tickets from the lovely Fashionet to attend the exhibition. They had regular tickets and VIP ones. Unfortunately, the VIP tickets had nothing extra except for VIP parkings and 5KD vouchers, that was it. People complained about buying VIP tickets for KD25 which were very similar to the regular tickets which were for KD3.
Talking about the exhibition. I thought it will be HUGE considering the advertisements I’ve seen in so many places. Instagram, twitter, blogs etc. But it was kinda small. It wasn’t crowded at all. I don’t know why there wasn’t a lot of audience even though there was a great amount of ads everywhere. Anyways, I hate crowded places :)
Talking about booths, restaurants and food. On the first day, I tried Mini Falafel from Dakakeen, Pistachio Gelato from Angelato and Red Velvet Mushroom with Cheese from Cravenation.
On the second day, I went at night and it was more lively. I tried Burger Factory Classic Burgers and Rainbow Ice-Cream cake from Angelato. Everything was so delicious.
I received an invitation months ago to try the newly opened burger place called Cali Burger. I couldn’t go on the same day but it was on my mind to try it some other day.
That some other day was last weekend. When we had a very long break and we went on a family trip to Alwafra, then Bnaider, and finally ended the day at Cali Burger.
I was eager to try their Wild Style (Animal Style In-N-Out) fries, that they say it’s almost like In-N-Out. And we also ordered the classic cheese burger.
The burgers were good but not wow. The size, the cooking, the bun and the sauce, all were really good but as I said, not that WOW.
Now, talking about the fries. NOTHING, and I mean it, NOTHING can reach the goodness of the Animal Style Fries of In-N-Out no matter what you do or say. The fries were good and the sauce was nice but it wasn’t like In-N-Out :)
My humble opinion. If you want, you can try it and see what I mean :D
I just love every product Dallah invents or creates. They’re just perfect in everything whether its traditional or modern desserts. They always have a new winner. They make us go back in time with their improved versions of traditional desserts like Beith Alqe6a, Ghuraiba, Damlooj and so on. Not to forget their modern desserts like Crown Jewels (My fav), Pumpkin Cake, Smoked Pecan Cake etc. You can never go wrong with their wide selection of desserts. If you have a gathering then Dallah is your perfect choice.
Their newest creation is The Lemon Almond Cake. Moist, spongy, delicious and not so citrus. The lemon taste is there but not actually there if you get what I’m saying. And I have to tell you that it stayed fresh in the fridge for more than 2 weeks. Baby Jana went nuts over it. When she wakes up in the morning she’d ask for it immediately. It’s very light. You’ll never feel full or stuffed even if you had a huge slice.
It’s definitely a winner.
Thank you Dallah and wish you all the best.
How many online supermarkets we have in K-Town? I believe a lot. but how many offer organics, gluten free and healthy products? I believe few of them do.
Tadco is a new online supermarket which has opened recently. It offers a wide range of organic and healthy products coming from the US on weekly basis. They also offer delivery to all GCC countries with a flat rate. I have received a bag full of some of their organic and healthy products to try and review and I have to admit that i loved all of them with no exception and I’ll tell you more about each product under its picture.
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to a private event by TheSideTalk to attend a night filled with beautiful essence and organic food at L’occitane-Tanagra Alfanar.
The door of the store was decorated with a beautiful country bicycle, lavender and yellow flowers. I loved the entrance very much, felt like I was in a country side not in an actual mall. As I entered the store, the aroma hit me. All of you who use L’occitane products know how aromatic their products are, how they smell so good and make you relaxed.
The was a variety of organic food, healthy fresh juices and other delights. We were offered a hand massage and also we had the opportunity to discover our essence that relates to our personality. The event was so relaxing, I really enjoyed it because it was quiet and serene.
Thank you for the lovely night :*
Last week I received a package from Ali Abdulwahab Almutawa Pharmacy that had a lot of products. The main was Bio Oil, the magical stretch marks and scars oil. A lot of pregnant women use Bio Oil during their pregnancy. I used it at first but then some people told me that there’s a better cream, turned out the opposite. Wish I continued using it but in my next pregnancy (IF) i’ll use it nshallah.
“Bio-Oil is the #1 scar and stretch mark product in over 17 countries around the world, and will now finally be available in Kuwait. It is a specialist skincare product not only meant for mothers and mommies-to-be, but also those affected by skin issues from athletes to growing adolescents. It helps promote even skin tone, nourishes aging skin, and lubricates dry, flaky skin (which we all know there is a lot of in this dry, desert climate!). It is also effective for other numerous skin problems, and as a dry oil, leaves no oily residue for those who worry about clogging their pores.”
I received a lovely invitation from Little Ruby’s to attend a night full of cooking and delicious meals at their newly opened branch in The Avenues. I tried their food before and it was really good. This time, I was excited to get inside their kitchen and experience how they cook their delicious dishes.
We arrived on time, greeted by the owner and seated. We selected new dishes to try and I chose a dish to cook which was the mushroom risotto. I gotta say that it took me a while to get inside the kitchen and cook because it was full house, but it was a very nice experience. Now take a look at the things we tried on that night:
Last week, I’ve received a beauty box from L’Occitane. Like every month, I received beauty box full of new products to try and review. This month is the month of Acacia. The smell of this essence is really nice and flowery. You’ll feel more refreshed after taking a bath with the sparkly shower gel, add a little bit of the perfume and you’re in a very beautiful yellow garden.
Get the perfume, it’s amazing.
Last week my husband and I were invited to try the food of Villa Babak which is located in The Souk area in The Avenues Mall. I’ve heard a lot about this place long time ago but i didn’t get the chance to try it.
It’s situated deep inside the souk area, just ask the security men and they’ll guide you. The place is quite big, not that much but it can accommodate a number of people if it gets crowded on holidays or such days. We were seated near the mini fountain and started going through the menu that had photos of each dish which is a good thing. Not all restaurants do that and wish they would, because photos help us choose better especially if it is a new place we are trying.
We chose some famous Persian food and most of the dishes were really good especially their famous Zarash rice. The atmosphere, staff and money wise were really good.
Check out the things we ordered:
If you haven’t noticed yet, let me tell you something about myself. I love cosmetics. I love trying new lines of skin care products, facials, spas, treatments and so on. Whatever new in the market, i’ll be more than happy to spend some money on it so I can try it and check if it’s worth it or not.
A couple of weeks ago, i wrote about the opening of Orogold 4th branch which was at Symphony mall. This time, i’ll be talking about their facial treatment. I received an invitation from Miss Sarah Alsaleh to try their facial. I chose the Hilton Resort branch because I wanted a relaxing place and so it was.
I was greeted by Miss Raisa, who introduced me to the whole line and informed me that every product they have has 24k of gold. And that each line is set for a certain age but you can mix some lines together to get a better result. She showed me their store which was a little bit small but enough for customers to check the products. They have 1 facial room. Their facial treatment costs KD 25 but if you get products from them for your skin they will give you few sessions for free.
Raisa started the facial treatment with Termica mask, where it went inside my pores, opened them and got all the toxins out. It was very hot, it took some time to cool down. After that she applied the Termica serum. Then we moved to the Vitamin mask, to close the pores and refresh the skin. After the mask, Raisa applied the Vitamin C serum. At the end, she used the Collagen mask which was very cold, and applied the collagen serum later on. My skin looked very alive, no black pores (she didn’t use a machine) and glowing.
I loved their products and I can’t wait for the current line I’m using to finish so I can try their lines.
I received an invitation from the lovely Sarah Alsaleh to attend the opening of Orogold 4th branch in Kuwait which was at Symphony Mall. I arrived late to the opening because i had to wait for Juju to wake up and then for my aunt to come and sit with her at Missoni Hotel :P to my luck they were running a bit late so I didn’t miss a thing.
The store was a bit spacious, it has 2 rooms for customers’ facials but not more than that. They also have all their products available in store and if you want to know about any products, the ladies will help you for sure. I will be trying their facial soon in Hilton Resort-Almangaf and I will let you know how it went.
I came across Shu Uemra‘s booths and boutiques in Hong Kong every where. Where ever you go there’s a Shu Uemera store or mini booth. I’m crazy about this Japanese cosmetics line, very healthy and easy on the skin specially the concealer and foundation base.
I came to know that there will be a limited edition collection by Takashi Murakami (Famous Japanese Artist) for Shu Uemera coming this October for Christmas. Of course I was so excited but the day of the launch was the day we were supposed to go to Disney Land. I was kinda afraid that I won’t be able to find anything when I go there in the evening.
We reached the store about 6 or 7 pm and yeepppeee the whole collection was there, not what we witness here in Kuwait lol :P Of course the ladies there were very helpful and saw an easy fish to make her buy almost everything from the collection :D You can see what I got in the last picture. And they pampered me with lots of gifts and mini cosmetics :)
