Hello 2019


Been a while I know but am promising myself to be more active here since it’s just the beginning of the year Happy new year to you wishing everyone a great 2019 filled with health, love , happiness and success!

As known , every new year we decide on writing down resolutions with the hope to start a new satisfying lifestyle that we aim to attain every year.

Personally , am truly promising myself with the will of god to make 2019 my epic year! How can that be done without managing our time and days – so thought of using The Eleven Planner which I previously used , it helped me a lot to make my 2018 more fulfilling! btw I love journal online apps but I prefer the actual paper touch – the smell of new Real paper ignites a certain feeling inside me, it’s actually proven its better to keep a written journal. Since we cannot write as fast as we type, it forces our brains to slow down and be more intentional of our real thoughts Also, numerous studies have proven that the connection of physically writing something (the tactile and kinesthetic moves of it trigger the release of different neurotransmitter in the brain. To me Old ways are always healthier.

Being online daily makes me crave to be offline , when planning and managing my life at least.

So here are some snapshots of the updated Planner , 2019 version :

As mentioned it’s such a “magic tool” works like a life couch on the go , directs you when lost , inspires you when in quest basically it gives your days a purpose and balances your life obligations.

Simply can’t live without it!

Giorgio Armani Beauty


Hello,

Today ‘s post is dedicated to those who love makeup and are interested in the latest trends in the beauty world, I got an invitation regarding a master class hosted by Giorgio Armani Regional Makeup Artist Raja Daniel … since am a great fan of Giorgio Armani cosmetics I thought not to miss it!

The makeup Artist shared great tips on how to apply makeup for both daily and special occasions , he was very much focused on how to use makeup to highlight your beauty rather than transform or hide your features.

I personally , see makeup as a tool to highlight your beauty features believing that every woman owns her unique kind of beauty , its just that some arn’t yet aware  , and don’t know how to present it.

The special thing about GA Cosmetic products , I find that all their products are set to high quality and claim what it states!

The products that I use so far are the under eye master corrector #2 , a bit orangy , I use it instead of a concealer as I see it more natural  , and the sheer bronzer (sun fabric)  #400 , gives a sun kissed  look ,and finally their glowy sheer foundation which I only use in special occasions but does what it claims .

As much as I love makeup , but I care more about my skincare , so I try not to put much, drink water as  much to keep hydrated …and why not ? Believing in that “less is more”

Here are some snapshots from the event that happened to be at the Four Seasons Hotel,Kuwait :

Story & StoryTellers Conference


Hello

Seems like alot is happening in March , but the most exciting part as I have a thing to books and reading is when I got an invite to the Story and StoryTellers Conference …

So if you have this mutual interest , don’t miss out on the lectures and workshops that are taking place from 18 March to 24 March , worth the time and experience!

As I was listening to the opening speech by Buthayna AlEssa , her words draw my attention to a personal belief which was

If we understood the story well, we would be able to understand the human being

I always believed by reading and meeting people of all walks of life we tend to identify people traits more wisely, and instantly! As said practice makes perfect!

Also she mentioned, Jonathan Gottschall quote:

We as species are addicted to meaning . We can’t bear randomness , absence of system or coincidence, so here we are as we have always been taking existence by putting it in a form of a story that gives it order and meaning

Those words made me more stubborn with my inner thoughts that nothing happens to us randomly, but it’s only time that can reveal , for now ,we just need to be aware of things happening around and have the patience to wait and see, the meaning behind this all.

Here are some shots:

Summer Smoothie 🌟


Today will be sharing my experience regarding a smoothie drink that I mixed and matched ; I always loved bananas smoothie but I thought why not add something new to it to make it a bit bitter than sweet so I thought of almonds all the way … Yes ! Raw Almond although I don’t like eating them alone So I decided to add it to the smoothie and surprisingly it came out So yummy 💙

Here’s why it’s important to include banana in your Daily Food Intake:
