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

Dinner By The Pool

1

Last weekend was one of the busiest weekends I’ve ever had yet it was also one of the best. My sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and we named her Noura <3 On the day that she gave birth, we were very tired after all the hassle, going up and down in the hospital, feeding the baby, helping my sister with stuff and so on. We really needed and break and we had a very beautiful one.

At night, we were invited to my aunt’s friends house that has a huge outdoor area with a beautiful relaxing pool and Jacuzzi. As we entered the house, we said Hi and immediately jumped in the pool. What I enjoyed the most was watching Juju swim from the Jacuzzi to the pool and back to the Jacuzzi. She had a fantastic time, she didn’t want to leave the pool at all, we had to pull her out with lots of screaming and crying :P

Then we had a very delicious light dinner by the pool. The atmosphere was a killer. What was missing a romantic movie and it would have been the perfect night. But anyways, it was the perfect night because we had lots of fun. Around 10:30pm we got out of the pool, changed Juju and off to our house. Juju didn’t say a word when I put her in her bed, she just hugged her lizard and fell in a deep sleep :)

Thank You @ZainKuwait عيدكم مبارك

Waking up this afternoon to a beautiful and fancy Eid gift from Zain Kuwait Social Media Team … What an amazing day. These people have been with us ever since we started blogging, they were our friends, blog-colleagues, brothers and sisters etc. You name it. We love them and we can open up easily to them, either complain and or suggest something or whatever we want to say, we can say it to them. They showered us with their love, kindness and generosity. They treat everyone the same way unlike other companies.

The huge black leather box contained Arabian perfume, Bukhoor, Mubkhar, Coal and Coal lighter, oh and a mini travel bag for the whole set, yes you can take the whole thing with you if you cannot be separated from you Bukhoor and Mubkhar. So fancy.

Thank you Zain :)

Mini Ghabqa #Take2 غبقة حضرتنا

1

Last Monday, we gathered at Jumana’s house, you all know her as The SideTalk. I haven’t been to her house before but this lady is so kind and nice, I’ve know her ever since we were pregnant with our babies and we’ve kept in touch. She’s one of the few people that I feel comfortable with so we all gathered at her cozy place wearing somehow fancy Darra’as (not THAT fancy). The gang members were DandermaJacqui, and PinkGirl. It’s always fun gathering with these girls.

Jumana’s house was so whitish and full of coziness and comfort. I felt so happy entering her house and sitting on her huge sofas and facing a huge bouquet of mini pink roses. The lady was so busy going and coming back from the kitchen preparing the table. We decided not to eat a lot on Fitoor so we can have fun together eating delicious food, yes we can have lots n lots of fun eating food lol :P

She made a delicious Syrian Taboulah, it was so yummy :P we ate Caesar pizza, hummus, fatayer and a lot of desserts. Aaahhh the desserts were awesome, heavenly awesome especially the Turkish Muhalabiya which I posted about on my instagram account (check it out if you want more information @crazyyetwise).

At the end of our mini ghabqa, Jumana had a lil surprise for us all. Her baby”s Gerge’an. How cute is baby Yuyu? ha? Soo damn cute :D Thank you Jumana for having us in your beautiful house. We loved everything :*

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 :)

Mini Ghabga غبقة حضرتنا

photo 4

Finally, my beautiful fat macbook pro is alive with a new heart :D It’s been more than 2 weeks. He was dead for no reason, I tried to revive him, but nothing worked until I called fixaid (tried them before for my iPhone) and they’ve informed me that they have to take the pc with them to the workshop. The idea of your pc away from your sight is kinda scary, so i waited for another idea or way to fix my computer but there was nothing. I called them again and they’ve fixed the problem in 4 days. The hard disk was dead and they had to replace it with a new one (512GB upgraded).

Of course everything was gone, but the most important things were backed up on an external hard drive. I’ve lost my blog watermark :( all the programmes I used to work on were all gone (need to install them again). And I’ve lost Juju’s 18months pictures :( *Sniff* and my school work *aaaaaahhhh* which I didn’t back but i can get it from my colleagues when the academic year starts again.

Now, I’m back to writing and this time, i’ll be talking about our mini Ghabqa which was hosted by our dear Danderma aver les amis Jacqui and PinkGirlq8. I love these girls, they’re the closest to my heart and I can say whatever I want in front of them not worrying what will come out of my mouth at all. I can act freely and easily. I can wear whatever i want in front of them, and that exactly what happened in our mini Ghabqa which we called غبقة حضرتنا quoting the name from Saray Abdeen TV show which we are addicted to.

In Kuwaiti Ghabqas (Ramadan gathering after Iftar) you have to wear a very elegant Darra’a and wear jewellery and make up. We didn’t want that in our Ghabqa, we wore house Darra’a and sat on the floor facing the table full of yumminess and watching TV.

It was a very nice and cozy Ghabqa where we had lots of fun together. I love you girls :*

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.

What an Amazing Birthday Gift!

1

Who can make my birthday so special? The one and only, my dear beloved friend Jacqui :* She makes everything so special and amazing. When I received my gift I was speechless, I really didn’t know what to say. The wrapping, the words, the details, everything was so beautiful and made from the heart. She actually did everything herself.

Just take a look at the details around the gift, aren’t they amazing? I even kept the wrapping to remember these days <3 I love you Juju, I know I won’t find a friend like anywhere in the whole world (stop smiling lol).

Oh and the gift ,,, Yeeppppeeeeee it’s a mini iPad, a toy i’ve been thinking of buying for while but I guess someone was reading my mind.

Thank you Jamooooon :* I love you so much gal khaysa :D

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.

Ramadan Kareem
