IKEA Soft Toys Campaign

1

Every year in November & December IKEA holds a campaign for Children’s Education around the world and donates 1 Euro for every toy sold in all IKEA stores around the world. The donation goes to Save The Children & UNICEF.

“The projects improve education in Asia, Africa, and Central and  Europe. With the funding, our partners help schools become more child-friendly with well-trained teachers for all children, girls and boys, including those from ethnic minorities and those with special needs.

A couple of weeks ago, we had a small gathering, just 4 mothers (bloggers) and their children. We had light lunch and got introduced to the whole idea of IKEA Campaign to improve education in undeveloped countries.

Our children are blessed enough to have proper education and we are thankful for that. Go to IKEA, buy your kid a soft toy (which doesn’t cost that much) and help another kid get proper education.

The Opening of Hello Kitty Spa @The_Avenues

1

A couple of weeks ago, I’ve attended the official opening of Hello Kitty Spa, located in the first floor of the 2nd Avenue. To be honest the place was crowded with media & they were very annoying so I didn’t get to explore the place that much or even try one of their services which I’ll try soon nshallah. But to be frank, the place is HUGE. Like really huge, I didn’t expect it to be like that.

For now, just enjoy the pictures, but soon i’ll be posting a review about the services that i’ll try there :)

Fun Fair Everywhere Carnival

1

Remember last March? Click Here

Well, they came back this season with a better and bigger carnival. The people who are in charge of the Fun Fair Everywhere Carnival organised the event this time in a bigger place. It was held in Discovery Mall Park which was really huge.

The event took place from 12 tip 9 pm but we arrived there around 1pm. Took Juju & my help with me, my blanket, basket and coffee :P What I liked this time was that almost all activities were out of charge, free. So many kids enjoyed their time in the arts and crafts sections. Some games that didn’t cost much .500fils and also some booths offered free of charge activities for kids.

Juju enjoyed her time in the snow pool and colouring. She also enjoyed her time dancing, running around the place and just walking here and there. Also the weather was really cool.

Don’t miss this event when it comes back again. Make sure to follow their instagram account to be up to date with their activities @Funfairkw

Happy 2nd Birthday Sweet Jana

1

Having a healthy beautiful child is an amazing blessing from Allah. Baby Jana is the best thing that has ever happened to me after I’ve lost my dear mother 9 years ago. Everyday I wake up thanking god for what I have. I’m trying to be the best mother for Jana and I want to make her happy all the time. Whether to take her out, buy her new clothes or toys, playing with her or even telling her bed time stories. And giving her the best birthdays ever.

This year, her birthday was 3 days earlier because of Eid and people travelling so we had to make it on Thursday 2nd of October but her actual birthday is on the 5th. This year’s theme was Sofia The First. She became attached to this Disney princess so much that she keeps saying her name all the time “Sopeya,,,Sopeya” :P So it wasn’t that difficult to think of the theme but the preparation was very tiring and the weather became so nasty :/

I ordered Sofia The First Party decorations from a website and they were delivered within 10 days, then I got to think of the setting. I chose my grandparents yard which is huge and a good location for taking pictures. After that I got to prepare the setting of the tables. I went to Caramel and ordered and 2 tiers special cake that matched the theme of Sofia and cake pops and cookies from Luscious. I went to Hawalli to get other kinds of decorations and purple fabric to cover the tables.

On the day of the party, we started getting the yard ready for the celebration. Everything screamed Sofia <3 I’m in love with this elegant and feminine princess. Lanterns, balloons, confetti and so many things hanging on the ceiling.  The DJ people came to set their stuff and everything was ready by 5:30 pm. Imagine working from 11 am tip 5 pm in a very humid weather. I couldn’t breath after the party finished but i didm’t feel a thing while the kids were dancing and having fun.

People started arriving around 5:30 pm and the fun started immediately. All the girls wore Disney princesses and they looked so adorable <3 They loved and enjoyed everything even though the wether wasn’t helping. my dear Juju was enjoying her day to the max, dancing and playing around. She wasn’t keen on playing games with the other girls, maybe because she’s too young to understand winning competitions and games but she loved playing with Sofia stuff that were every where.

The time came for Juju to blow her 2nd birthday’s candles. Everybody was singing Happy Birthday but Jujus was in another place, eating her marshmallow pop and smiling :P The cake was so delicious yum yum. All red velvet and dark chocolate.

My sweet Baby Jana, I hope one day I’ll see a grown up woman full of beauty inside and outside. Successful and smart. Married and have beautiful kids. Amazing career and life. I love you mama and I wish you all the best.

P.S. Everything has been arranged with the help of @eventful_kw <3

Thank You iFUNity for The Gerge’an

1

A couple of days ago, I received a huge Gerge’an package from inFUNity play area which is located in 360Mall. I love the place because it has games for all ages. I used to take Juju there ever since she was 9months old and she would enjoy her time to the max. The people who work there are very friendly and active, they will definitely draw a huge smile on your child’s face once you enter the area. And sometimes they make nice offers, like charge for 20KD and get 8KD extra, something like that.

The Gerge’an package came with delicious sweets from NagwaKuwait (Hail o Zaafrn before). I loved the packaging and the sweets, very delicious and yummy.

Thank you inFUNity for the yummy Gerge’an and for the gift :D I’m sure Juju will enjoy her time to the max :)

Gerge’an Party

3

Every year in Ramadan we celebrate Gerge’an with lots of candies and chocolates. It’s a very special occasion that children have fun and enjoy their time. You see mothers getting creative with their Gerge’an ideas. This year I didn’t want to make for Juju anything and want it to be quiet but I found some boxes hidden in my wardrobe and thought why not use them and make Gerge’an for Juju. It was very simple and small. Because I have other arrangements I decided to make it simple. The other arrangements you’ll know about it in 2 weeks :D

 Here are some pictures from the Gerge’an party which we attended and had lost of fun. My sweet heart is all grown up now as you can see in the pictures :)

Zain’s Social Media Day

1

Every year, Zain Telecom Company celebrates Social Media Day with bloggers, and social media influencers. Each Year they celebrate it on the 30th of June, the international day, but this year it was on the 25th of July just before Ramadan but I believe next year it will be in Ramadan :)

I have to talk about their invitations, every year they shock us with amazing and creative events. This year, a customised song to invite us to the Social Media Day and it was really nice :D

The invitation says “Hala Crazyyetwise” but on youtube it doesn’t :/

Every year they choose a new location and this time it was at Prestige Ballroom-The Avenues. I was really eager to see the ballroom itself. Got ready and left the house around 6:30pm and reached there around 7pm, the street were really crowded :/

The ballroom was kinda small yet cozy, I don’t think you can host weddings or big events there, but you can have big meetings or such events like the Social Media Day. The decoration of the place was really nice. The tables settings and silverware was beautiful and elegant, I really loved the birds theme. The food was delicious.

The event started around 8pm, Mike Embalta3 was the presenter along with a new guy (forgot his name). Mr. Mohammad Almuhaini gave us a funny light speech as always. The event had so many sections, talking about social media experience, presenting some influencers, talking about the most followed people on instagram and what they represent etc. Also there were 2 huge screens showing the world cup matches which we didn’t miss.

when we first entered the the ballroom, a nice lady gave us numbers for some draws, they held a draw for 3 winners every now and then, and guess whaaaaaat? I won, my prize was iPhone 5c :D I just love winning. Oh and when I went out to pick my prize, Mike Embalta3 asked to chat with me a bit, I was nervous because this was my first time talking under the spotlight. He asked me about how bloggers turned to instagram and forgot their blogs, an oh boy, this was it. I told him “blogging is about writing, not just posting pictures, instagram is like a mini blog just for photos and some comments not a real blog and it’s that many bloggers deserted their blogs and now they’re only posting on instagram” :P

I went back to my chair shaking, it was such a nice experience.

Thank you Zain for the lovely event.

She actually did everything herself.

Our Graish Party

1

Every year, we celebrate garish (pre Ramadan feast) at my grandparent’s house, with our family members and friends. The gathering begins around 7pm and continues tip midnight getting in the mood for Ramadan timing. My aunt takes care of the decorations and activities, my grandma takes care of the food, she has a great cook, and we other family members bring desserts with us.

We wear darra’a because it’s Ramadan theme and we get to talk and chit chat with everybody we haven’t seen for a while. We also play some Ramadan Kuwaiti songs and dance a bit, my beautiful Juju loved the whole atmosphere, she didn’t stop dancing. We had lots of fun :D

The food was amazing, my grandma’s cook did an amazing job, we also brought a lady that does Rgag bread in front of our eyes with a variety of stuffing. DELICIOUS.

Kidzania Kuwait First Anniversary

1

I received a lovely gift from Kidzania Kuwait. It was a Vita doll (which we were wanting to buy) and 3 tickets to enter Kidzania and enjoy their celebrations. We went on Friday afternoon, it wasn’t that crowded because it was still exams. Their staff were friendly as always, they explained everything to us in details, gave us a map of the place and informed us that some new places opened but they’re not listed in the brochure.

The tickets they gave us entitled Juju to a check of 50 kidzos, which gave Juju the chance to play more, and I told them that she’s 2 years (white lie) because I wanted her to try new places. She got the chance to play in the Fire station, House of Urbano and she loved playing with Vita character which came to greet kids every hour or so. Juju also had the chance to create her own perfume at Alqurashi with the help of the lady in charge.

I really loved seeing Juju in the Fireman costume, she was so cute and lovely. She enjoyed the celebrations very much, dancing with the staff and the characters. It was a lovely day well spent. I’ll wait tip Juju is a lil bit older so she can enjoy her time and try more places/jobs.

Thank you Kidzania for the lovely day and wish you more success in the future.

Elmo Makes Music

1

I received a VIP invitation to attend the musical show “Elmo Makes Music”, coming all the way from USA to entertain us for few days. The VIP show was on Wednesday, just one day before the original show. I took Juju with me. This was her 1st musical after turning 1 year and a half. I was kinda worried she won’t sit down or enjoy the show. I was totally wrong. Once the show started, she stayed put in her chair, enjoying the show, the music, and clapping all the time. She was so calm and focused. But when the show stopped for a break, she got grumpy and I believe she wanted to sleep because it was around 8pm at that time. Yes the show started a lil bit late, after 7pm.

The show was marvellous, the stage, the colours, the songs, the music and oh my my the characters were totally amazing and fun. I really loved it and enjoyed singing with them. I love it when companies start taking care of such events in Kuwait, we need more of this and I hope to see and nice built stage with lots of events and shows.

Thank you Even Mania Co. for the invitation <3
