As lots may know, every Friday my posts would be dedicated to the soul ,
“How can we self-grow our own soul ?”

I Personally think that the best tool would be books …Yes!!! reading lots of them and travelling , those 2 tools in precise makes a huge impact on your character in the long term and on the prescriptive that you see things … Trust me It will evolve you to the better

The Best Personal Development books I would recommend are:

  • The Monk who sold his Ferrari
  • The Power of Now
  • Who moved my Cheese?
  • The Power
  • Poor Dad Rich Dad
  • The Tipping Point
  • The Key
  • The Alchemist
  • The soul of leadership
  • The power of habit

Hope you enjoy reading them as I did … books have the highest return on you so make sure you get to choose the best read

Midnight Recovery by Kiehl’s


kiehls review

Its been a few month now since I have tried this night serum , it was my first ever product from Kiehl’s , sure I have heard a lot about this brand , but I wasn’t aware of how beneficial its products are … so let me tell you my feedback on this  miracle , how many of us don’t sleep enough , that you wake up in the morning have a tired look , this product did the job! it made me look as if I had the best night sleep !

My personal feedback  on the product:

Pros :

  • Suits all skin type
  •  It has a lavender scent, very relaxing
  •  Luminous skin in the morning
  • Heals the acne scars
  • It lasts almost 3 month

 

Cons :

  • Not an anti-aging product
  • The scent is strong and somehow discomforts the eye

 

Hope it was helpful , again it’s my personal feedback 🙂

Kind wishes,

My Detox Plan


detox

It’s been a while since I was thinking of doing a detox diet plan ,not an extreme one , just the normal energiser & cleansing type. My biggest concern now is to get rid of any excess waste that my body lately been storing and in the same time to strengthen my immune system.

My detox plan was a 3-day mission, The Energizer Cleanse focusing on cold pressed juices rich in both vegetables and fruits that our body’s initially requires.It consists of two Super Green Juice, one Beetroot, one PAMP (Pineapple, Apple, Mint, Pear), one Spicy Lemonade and one of our creamy Almond Milk (with dates and cinnamon).

First of all , before starting the  detox plan ,I stopped 2 days ahead carbs and coffee just to make my body aware of the eating habits change awaiting.

The First day of the detox was the hardest , I had headaches and felt sluggish! but as long as you are done with the first day consider yourself  somehow done, am not saying that it was easy , sadly its not.. I was stressed and inactive – although the juices I had were supposed to claim energy!

My feedback on the detox challenge was that  I really felt I needed it so bad ,I needed to cleanse my self from all the toxics in my body. I felt so light in soul and radiant in skin – I now believe “What you indulge inside you really does reflect back on you” ! Eat well nothing is more valuable than your wellbeing! It’s the healthy intake and lifestyle that brings health , happiness and peace. – Nothing else.

Sharing some benefits of Detoxing:

  1. Boosts Your Energy
  2. Rids the Body of Any Excess Waste
  3. Helps with Weight Loss
  4. Stronger Immune System
  5. Improved Skin
  6. Lighter Feeling
  7. Healthier Hair
  8. Anti-Aging Benefits

If you are thinking of detoxing … Go ahead and do it! trust me its worth the challenge! 🙂

The Exotic Scent


PERFUME 2016

 

Here are my set of perfumes that I mix for those who are interested  …

Many people randomly ask’s me about what kind of scent I have on and they seem to wait for one scent reply …  its always hard to answer since my exotic smell comes from the (Mix) I do … I simply mix Arabian scents with European ones that I like and voilà I create a total new amazing scent, ie. East meets West! magic mix ! also let me not forget to mention the wooden Bokhour Scent (winter time) also has its special role! Spray a small bit from each perfume!and enjoy the magic mix you get.

Reminder: Each body reacts differently with each scent.. so get a tester or try them on before purchasing.

*Kind Tip: Remember don’t store perfumes in your bathroom, humidity will break down the perfume and lessen the quality of the fragrance. Instead, store them in cool place and away from windows.
