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:

Be the change … 


 

“Be the change you wish to see in the world ” -Mahatma Gandhi

How many do dare to start in their own self , and be the change they seek ? In other words be an example to the upcoming generation, leave your mark …

Since the Somalia campaign was released  via Social Media I noticed a lot about my peers and community that I was probably not aware of …it’s the genuine act of helping people in need , the trait that most Kuwaitis and Muslims were raised to be , it’s not that it’s awkward or something it’s just the numbers which such good deeds were a lot making me believe that good genuine people do exist proving this was seen in the past 24 hours of the large artesian well Campaign in Somalia. From such an act I can Proudly say that I am blessed to be a Kuwaiti.

The Primer Review


img_1897

1                                                                                                2

Today I will be sharing my feedback on those 2 primers , again my feedback is a personal one which means that what I have experienced may not reflect yours … but from time to time I enjoy sharing my experience to help people who are always in search of the best products out there …

Here you go :

  • Primer 1  is Smashbox (PHOTO FINISH) PURPLE :

I loved this product put it on after the moisturiser, give it a 10 min to dry up then put whatever you want baby cream or a foundation  or wear it alone , it basically does what it claims:

  1. Reduces the appearance of pores instantly
  2. Non drying formula
  3. Absorbs oil  and keeps makeup on up to 8 hours
  4. Gives a flawless feel and look

My Rating : 9/10

 

Primer 2 is Benefit (The POREfessional ) Green :

This product was okay , it doesn’t do the job fully , although it gives you a  beautiful feel on your skin , but the  appearance of pores somehow shows , here what I noticed about this product :

  1. Lightweight
  2. Velvet feeling on the skin
  3. Translucent
  4. Amazing scent

My Rating : 7/10

 

 

*Friendly Reminder : This review reflects my personal experience and the products reaction with my skin tone (Fair , combination skin)and texture. It may reflect you and it may not, just a friendly share! Hope I helped anyone out there searching for the perfect primer 😉

Yours sincerely,

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,

Nora
