Best Gym for Ladies in Kuwait

Screen Shot 2015-04-05 at 12.10.48 AM

So I’ve been thinking about joining a gym for a couple of months now and I thought of sharing some gyms that I’ve tried and other gyms that i’d like to try one day.

I’ve tried Curves but the style didn’t work out for me. I then tried Pilates and More which was good at the beginning but then it started to get crowded and the place was far from home (Hitteen to Salmiya). There’s Flex for women in Shaab but still the place is really far from home and kinda crowded. I hate crowded places/gyms.

Last year I tried Fitness First which is located in 360Mall and very close to home and I really liked it. From classes to instructors to the place itself. It only lacks a swimming pool but that wasn’t an issue because i hate public swimming pools :P They do take care of their trainees and help them whenever they need it. I only stopped because I travelled and then became lazy but now I’m back to my energised persona :D

Now another gym that I’m interested to try is Alhamra Thermae. It looks really huge and really nice. I’m loving all the decoration, equipments and classes. The only thing that is making me think about it hundred times is the location of the place :/ in the heart of Kuwait city which is always crowded.

That was my mini posts about some gyms in Kuwait. If you have gyms that are close to Hiteen please mention them :D

Loom Bracelets Time with Baby Jana

1

On the week of Mother’s Day, Jana & I received a gift from Fantasy World. Once Jana saw the wrapped gift she started singing Happy Birthday :P

When I opened it I was surprised to find that it was Loom Bracelet Mega Kit. To be honest, I didn’t think it was suitable for Jana’s age and I myself don’t know how to use it.

I googled some youtube tutorials and from there I picked up the basics and sat with Jana on Saturday morning to do just one bracelet.

It took us around 40 minutes to do that mini bracelet you can see in the pictures below :D but I loved the time Jana & I spent together putting that bracelet together. It wasn’t easy at first but later it got easier.

I’ll be doing a bracelet every Saturday or Friday morning with Baby Jana :D

Thank you @FantasyWorldToys

Pearl Salon Services

1

A couple of weeks ago, I visited Pearl Salon located behind Mogul Mahal restaurant. They invited me to visit their newly opened salon and try some of their services.

I went their early in the morning (love mornings) and it was really beautiful. The whole place is decorated in white and a lil bit of light grey. I love white, it gives the place a lovely vibe, and you feel more relaxed sitting their and being pampered.

I tried their ginger hair treatment which was really good. The smell and the texture of my hair afterwards was really nice. Also the pedi and meni was good. They have a separated place for pedicure and menicure with some of greens for your eyes to enjoy and a tv to keep you occupied. Their massage was verrry nice.

Thank you Pearl Salon for the lovely time and I hope you keep up the good work forever.

Magnolia’s Famous Banana Pudding

1 10.32.19 AM

Everybody enjoyed the opening of Magnolia Bakery a couple of years ago (I think) and we all became excited to try their famous confectionary (for those who haven’t tried them before) or just pick up our favourite dish from them.

I myself haven’t tried it before outside Kuwait, I only tried it when it opened. Tried 3 cupcakes, liked 2 and disliked 1. This time I went back for their famous Banana Pudding. And why was I waiting that long?

It’s the most delicious thing ever. So moist, creamy, fluffy and mouth watering. I loved it. Perfect for morning breakfast or just for snacking on it in the afternoon with a good cup of black coffee.

I bought the big pot and took it with me home, it stayed their for a couple of days having the same flavour. Even Juju loved eating it, she kept saying “Mama ice cream” hehe she thought she was eating an ice cream not a pudding.

If you haven’t tried it yet (like me) then I advise you to go ahead and pick your pot :)

Winter Festival in @KidzaniaKuwait

1

After receiving the delicious invitation from Kidzania Kuwait. We couldn’t go immediately because Baby Jana fell very sick and we had to wait few weeks to drop the place a visit. And we weren’t disappointed at all. The place looked so wintery.

When we first entered everything looked dazzling. Artificial snow comes down every few seconds, songs played every where, white and light decorations are all over the place and there’s even a new place made only for winter festival with lots and lots of winter games. You see penguins everywhere, up and down. Juju enjoyed looking at the lights and kept saying “letat letat” as in “lights lights”.

I took Juju to the painting studio to paint on her face and she enjoyed it a lot. I chose a wintery drawing to suit the mood and the decoration. It also matched her clothes.

There’s also a Frozen Pass where you can enjoy shows and some events but it’s not suitable for Juju’s age. I believe from 4 or 5 and above.

We loved everything <3

Kidzania Winter Festival continues tip the 24th of Jan 2015. Don’t miss it.

Happy Belated Birthday @Jacqui

9

She’s the best friend ever. She will make you happy just with her genuine smile and white heart. She knows what you like and what you hate and she wouldn’t bring the thing you hate close to you ever. She’ll make your life as happy as she can with all her gifts, designs, or ever just her whatsapp chats.

I’m talking about my T.V. Shows junkie friend Jacqui or as Juju calls her “Samoona” as in “Jumana” lol :P She has turned 31 last Thursday *Old Woman* :P and I wish this year will bring joy and happiness and more success nshallah as I’m sure that she’ll shine one day and become this big person in our society with great power.

As we wanted to make something in return for all her efforts and gifts to make us happy. We decided to throw her a surprise birthday party before her actual birthday without her noticing anything. So we created a whatsapp group behind her back to plan everything. I took care of the food, Danderma took care of the balloons and decorations and PinkGirl, well the whole thing happened in her house/tent and she took care of decorations and food also.

She came very late and we were very hungry on that day because we didn’t have lunch, we were saving extra space for all the food we were going to eat on that night. Of course she was surprised and didn’t know about our plans :P We bought some Elevation Burgers and made them as a cake for her and another cake but this one is the delightful orange Kenafa which was really delicious, I loved it.

We love you Samoona, may all your wishes come true. I know one is coming within few days ;)

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

1

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 :)
