On the day of Valentine, I was invited to attend the official opening of Elie Tahari store located at 360Mall. I’ve always fancied his brand. So elegant, chic and classic. It suits almost every event. Whether you want something casual for work or chic for evening, you’ll find it there. I’ve owned a couple of pairs of shows which I loved so much and wore so many times, very comfy.
Drop them a visit if you’re looking for some colourful outfits. The new collection is really nice.
Thank you for the invitation and the red flower.
Last week, I attended the event of La Panthere by Cartier where we were introduced to the new fragrance for 2014 that will be launched on the 15th of March.
The perfume has its own place inside Cartier store located in 360Mall. It hasn’t been priced yet but soon it will be. The bottle is shaped as a diamond in the inside and has the face of a Panther, the famous symbol of Cartier. And they’re celebrating the 100th year since they;ve launched the Panther face (watch 1914).
I loved the smell of the perfume, but when I left it for a couple of days on my clothes and smelled it again, it was more than wonderful. I also did the trick of leaving the bottle inside the fridge for 3 days and then I used it, amaaaaaazing. So feminine and strong at the same time.
One of the amazing experiences we had in Dubai was getting at the top of Burj Khalifa. I’ve always wanted to go there but never had the chance so this time, I was determined to. Booked our tickets online in advance. Got them from the counter and we were admitted inside at 6:15pm (tickets time 6:30). Security check was fast and then we headed up up up in the air :P we didn’t feel a thing, few seconds and we were on level 124 of Burj Khalifa where we enjoyed the beautiful view of Dubai and the breeze was cool and strong.
What I hated about it was one thing. They Jana’s stroller which made it very difficult for us to move. She wanted to run around the place and when i grabbed her she started yelling and screaming. That happened many times, which was frustrating.

When we were in Dubai, we visited The Farm in Albarari area. I’ve heard about this place a lot from many people and saw many beautiful pictures on instagram but I’ve never thought it would be that magnificent. The place wasn’t that far from our hotel. We got there so easily. The gate was huge and the streets were as if you were in Europe not in a Gulf country.
We entered The Farm Restaurant which was spacious and white, so white. Relaxing and refreshing. We were seated indoors by the lovely staff and started selecting our dishes from their iPad menu (which we prefer all the time). We got cheese platter, bread basket, egg salmon florentine, salmon bagel and at the end we got the chocolate waffles with strawberries and had them with coffee outdoors.
The food was really delicious. The artificial fires and river were so beautiful and amazing. The weather was so nice, we loved the whole experience and would go back again when we’re in Dubai again.
Last month I’ve received a huge bag from @sticksnadballs_ (instagram) that had a huge tray full of yumminess. The tray had chocolate balls attached to sticks and a creamy delicious white sauce poured on them.
1 stick is more than enough, it’s heavy and the quantity is more than enough for 10 persons (From my opinion). We kept eating from it for almost a week.
The presentation of the tray and bag was really good, so you can order it if you’re visiting someone or if you want it for your gathering.
In the spring break that we had a couple of weeks ago, my husband & I decided to have a short break to change the atmosphere and have a peace of mind avec Baby Jana. How wrong we were. I won’t say it was horrible, but it was very exhausting and tiring. I enjoyed my time but not that much. I was running around Juju all the time, not to mention when I have to change for her and she gets grumpy and Chucky all over me :S Or when she wants to get her nap and she’s not used to the baby cot we got from the hotel. Blah blah blah.
BUT there were places that when we visited Juju had lots of fun, and seeing her running with a huge smile on her face made me very happy and forgot all about the hard time she gave me.
One of the places that we really enjoyed visiting was the Miracle Garden. A magical place with lots of flowers, colours and shapes to enjoy looking at and taking pictures with. The design of the place is really creative, old things were used to decorate it, like very old cars and so. They created, house and Burj Khalifa from flowers. Wide space to enjoy walking in surrounded by beautiful cool breeze and smell. A decent fountain is in the garden to complete the atmosphere. And you can enjoy a mini break under the flowers in a small cafe that the garden has. Of course, food and drinks are not allowed, you can buy them from inside.
It’s a must visit place, your kids will enjoy running around the place.
Whatever Dallah creates, rest assured that it will taste delicious and satisfy your taste buds. They’ve been experimenting for a while on a new dish that had raspberries in its ingredients, and i’m rasp-maniac-berry. I was waiting for it to come out and to my luck, I received a box from the guys behind Dallah to try it. The box was huge, so you should have seen my face the moment I opened the box and saw lots of jewels waiting to enter my tummy :D
The taste was really good, not that sugary or too sweet, not that heavy. In fact, you can eat 2 in a row, and that what I did. A combination of creamy custard with raspberries and crushed biscuits. Really good. Well done guys.
Last week, my sister and I went to The Village not knowing where to eat, we thought of going there and then decide where to eat. We saw The Junkyard and decided to try its food. The whole experience was great, everything was perfect except for the cold weather, the doors were opened and the place was very chilly. The service and food were really awesome. Also the prices were very reasonable. Check out what we ordered:
Last week, my husband and I went to try Pizzetta’s new menu for break fast. We tried them before for su7oor click here. But this time, it was an early bird meal. The place in Albede’a was very peaceful and quiet, nice if you want some privacy with your husband away from crowded places.
The food was really good, we loved everything on the menu but of course we couldn’t try everything :P So here’s what we ordered and enjoyed to the max :)
Last week, I received the delicious huge blue box from chocolateness not knowing that it has a new flavour. I thought I’d be eating the normal chocolate molten cake, but when I opened the box and saw a lot of green, I got excited like a little baby. I’m a huge fan of pistachio than to Pick :) and there it is, Pistachio Molten Cake with Caramel Sauce in front of my own eyes.
It arrived hot as always. The taste was superb, pistachio and caramel=Heaven on earth. Add to it, a sugarless cup of coffee and you have the perfect combination.
It’s available now for order. Try it if you like pistachio and caramel. Thank you Chocolateness <3
Remember my post about L_Modish Elegant Collection? Now, they have new collection for your kids celebrating the National and Liberation Day. The lovely owner sent Baby Jana 2 Tshirts from her own designs and they were so lovely, we all loved them and can’t wait to let Juju model them and wear them for the National day celebrations. Check her instagram account got more pictures (@l_modish).
Thank you lovely Lolo :*
Last Thursday, I dropped Proud To Be Kuwaiti village a visit which I didn’t like at all. It was really horrible, not like last year. The only thing that I really liked about it, was Dolma Kai (@dolmakai) The only business that attracted my attention and taste buds.
Think of dolma (vine leaves) crispy and chewy…a new experience indeed. I’m totally in love. You choose between 2 sauces, I got the tamarind one and it was awesome. LOVED IT. Try them if you’re going to the village or order from them, but i prefer them fresh and hot.
