Congrats Man. U!

Sorry King, now you have to seriously reconsider which team you want our kids to support, Barcelona or my beloved Manchester United :p

Been reading the tweets yesterday after the game and I must say the jokes people come up with within minutes is pure genius :p I was telling my brother in law, who’s also a fan of the Red Devils that I should’ve given birth yesterday! I would’ve nicknamed the baby “Red Devil” :p

Wishing the outstanding team lots of luck in all the upcoming games.

Happy Eid from our Nest!

Eid Mubarak to each and every Muslim! Taqabal allaah 6a3atkum, siyamkum oo qiyamkum inshalaa oo t3oodoona bil si7a wil 3afya ya rab!

If the baby doesn’t arrive today, this will be last Eid King and I celebrate before becoming parents, can’t wait to celebrate the upcoming Eids with our baby.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Eid with family and friends.

XOXO

P.S. These 2 songs are a special dedication to King :p

Eye Opener

Please read this post by the lovely Mrs. Jumana, she really opened up my eyes to an issue that’s been going on for a while now.
I realised now that every time I didn’t broadcast a blackberry message / tweet I slimmed down the chance of finding a child sooner.
Next time you get a bbm/tweet even if u think its fake, please please just forward it. “Inama al a3maalu bil niyaat”.

مسرحية زين إلى عالم جميل

King and I are both happy with the idea of this play, at last a play that seems to be actually beneficial and decent for kids. With these new bizarre plays that seem nothing but a waste of time for our young ones, this definitely stands out and reminds us of the Huda Hussain plays we grew up watching. Now that we are having a baby soon inshala and will probably be taking our baby to see plays in Eid in a few years, we hope that by that time actors and play writers will come up with educational shows, ma nabii masra7iyaat el ghoul wil sanaafir, tweety oo spongebob! :p

Oh! and the guy at the end of the advert reminded King of Bert from Mary Poppins and I totally agree! He has the same mannerisms and facial expressions 3ajeeeb!

Happy Eid in Advance with Wataniya!

Wataniya should be awarded best TVC’s this Ramadhan! Sij 3afya 3alaihum. This video is exactly what we go through the days before eid but unfortunately this will be the first eid that I don’t run around worrying about my eid clothes and hopping from one salon to the other coz I’m only worrying about my labour :p
Happy Eid in advance to everyone just incase akoon walda bil 3eed oo ma agdar a3ayid 3alaikum 🙂

F. Naqi Institute

I’m so excited to write about the beautiful Ms.Fatima Al Naqi’s Institute. I first met her in a makeup course my friends dragged me into more than a year ago. I intended to go to 1 class and leave because I was sure anyone in Kuwait that gives makeup courses will try to turn me into one of these overly made faces with multicolored eyeshadows and eyeliners that went up to their ears. But honestly I was fascinated by Fatima’s simplistic, if I may say, “european” style of makeup with a very elegant arabic touch. She quickly became a friend more than an instructor and my friends and I used to leave her class laughing and eager to rush back the following week. Fatima talked to us about her idea of opening a beauty institute and we honestly couldn’t wait for it. We all wanted her to do our makeup for ever wedding and give us hairstyling tips for every event!

Today her dream came true and she opens the doors to every women like me who’s sick of worrying a thousand times before booking a makeup session with someone. Trust me with Fatima you could just relax, close your eyes and know for sure that she’s gonna bring out the beauty in you.

I have so much more to say about this talented young woman, but I’ll leave you with some information about both Fatima and her institute.

From courses in Kuwait, to Makeup diplomas in Spain, certificates in London, Fatima S. Al Naqi has a lot to bring to the table. Her experiences do her justice, with Makeup certificates from Jemma Kidd Makeup school, London, Al Naqi was given one on one classes with different Makeup artists such as Mai Lee, David Horne, Sevim and the Celebrity Makeup artist, Photographer Gozra Lozano, and most importantly was chosen to design the Cover Book for Gozra Lozano.

Her infamous airbrushing was the first to be introduced in Kuwait, Al Naqi has also collaborated projects with Closet Candy and November Boutique.
The first makeup Academy (FNi) F. Naqi institute has recently been launched , one to one classes are being offered and group classes as well, and then further on, a Mentor, Gozra Lozano who will also give workshops to those who are interested.

                                             

                                             

                                            

Check out the youtube video of the make up academy it really shows how creative and different her style is:
