Mai a Make-up addict

I am one of the girls who loves to put make up, I love buying make up and I love practicing it on my face. Unfortunately I don’t see myself good at it! I lately heard about Mai. I heard that she is giving a basic classes where she covers almost everything step by step! I really found that interesting and I decided to join her class!
You wont believe me how well organized her class was! Well let me start from the beginning!
When I heard about her – from my cousins - I started following her on twitter, and I found a lot of people commenting about her class, so I contacted her to get more details. She is such a sweetheart girl! She was replying on every single message and she was very helpful even before the class!
So on the class date I was so excited! I went inside the class and got amazed of how everything was on order and everything was so organized! I forgot to take pictures that day but I will show you the pictures she posted in her blog

Here what the class covers:

I benefited a lot from the class, I loved attending it and I enjoyed it to the max! I am pretty sure you will find it useful! She teaches almost everything in these three and a half hours! And she will tell you which product is good to use and stuff! She is such a lovely girl that she actually welcome any question and she answers back nicely!
I highly recommend you to join her class! She is planning to make an advance class for the eye shadows and she is taking the girls from the basic classes! So join her today before its too late!

& if you are not from Bahrain, why not visit us and try to attend one of her classes! I assure you its worth it!

To know more about Mai:

“”I’m Mai and I’m a Make-up addict.
The obsession with make-up started out a few years ago & I decided to actually explore everything about it! I felt the urge to educate the women who use make-up but have no clue on how to apply it: shes uses a wrong brush with this or applies this before that or uses a dark color with this.. Etc. What made me start was when friends kept asking me: what’s that eyeshadow? How do you even out your skin after foundation? How to use the eyeliner? How to How to How to…. So i gathered them and created a MAKE-UP 101 session & taught them all the basics. Then I realized that many other girls need to know about this. Guiding them through this will enhance their make-up skills & make them feel pretty.””

You & restaurant with bars!

Since I live in Bahrain, we have a lot of restaurants which contains bars inside.. to be honest I hate this thing here in Bahrain, I think they really should close all the bars in the restaurants and at least keep them inside the hotels only – although I wish we live in a country with no alcohol access –
So my question today, would you go to a restaurant with a bar inside? If you saw someone entering such places what would you think of them? What will be the first impression you would take?
To be more specific, if you saw a girl entering these restaurants would you think that she drinks?

Share your thoughts =)

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to All Moms in this world..

I was listening to Bahrain FM this morning and I loved the questions they asked, I would love to know your answers to these questions.. So here we go..

1. What did you take from your mom (from both personality and look)?
2. What is the punishment that your mom gave you which you can never forget and which makes you laugh about it now?
3. A word you would like to dedicate to your mommy?

For me, my answers are:
1. I look like my mom, this is what all say and I am happy about it! I took my mom's face! I still look like my dad I guess :P.. From the personality, I guess I took her kind heart, also, I am like her in always assuming good about people! "7sn el '9an" which I kindly hate to be honest :P

2. Hahaha, well my mom is not a bad mother, but I guess our moms before used to beat their kids which is normal, so there is something I can never forget which make me laugh everytime I remember it and makes my mom upset wondering how she did that lol, I was maybe 3-5 years and I used to refuse to go to the toilet to pee *excuse my langauge* so my mom used to take me there and asking me nicly to do it and I used to refuse, the moment I leave the toilet I pee outside in the livingroom :P which used to piss my mom off and she used to beat me on my "butt" really hard *excuse my language again* lol actually she was doing it with a wood spoon the one we use in cooking :P LOL

3. Last word is I love you Mama! Allah e6awel li fe 3omrech o e5aleech li o e5aleech etchofeen 3yaal 3yaali yaraab!

Yallaaa share your answers please :P

اللهم يا ذا الجلال و الإكرام يا حي يا قيوم ندعوك باسمك الأعظم الذي إذا دعيت به أجبت، أن تبسط على والدتي من بركاتك ورحمتك ورزقك.

I Will Miss You!

I loved it.. Loved how we sat and talked.. Loved how we were so comfortable that day.. Loved how comfortable I felt when I was eating.. I loved how we used one laptop.. How we were looking at one screen.. I loved feeding you.. I loved drinking from the same straw.. I loved spending time with you..
For the first time that day I felt I am going to lose you soon.. I couldnt take my eyes from your face.. I wanted to explore every part on it.. I wanted to see every part.. Your eyes.. Your cheeks.. Your lips.. Your chin.. Your hair.. I'm gonna miss you.. Gonna miss everything about you.. Gonna miss everything about us.. Gonna miss our chit chats.. Gonna miss our late calls.. Gonna miss our early morning calls.. Gonna miss your voice.... I am not sad.. Not even crying.. I am smiling.. You made me happy in the past years I knew you.. You made me laugh, smile, love life.. You made me believe in love.. You made me love you.. I am not angry at you.. Perhaps we are not meant to be together.. Even when I believe that you are my soulmate.. Even when I know that you complete me.. Even when I know that its hard to live without you.. Perhaps its better for both of us.. I love you.. But its time to go...

Living in the shadow!

I'm sorry..
How can someone say sorry when they are repeating what they do over and over again..
How are you supposed to say its okay when its not?!
How are you supposed to say its fine when it hurts so much?
How are you supposed to smile back to them when you have tears on your eyes?
I am hating this routine! Crying at night and wake up looking miserable!
I don’t understand you, I don’t understand how can you say sorry when you don’t know you’re sorry for what!

I'm hating your sorries, your promises, your words! I'm hating how you tell me you love me, you want me, you wanna be with me! I'm hating how your telling me your trying when your not! I'm hating how a month has passed and you are still doing nothing, how we are still in the same page.. I'm hating how actually its been more than a month for that, how every time I've been saying this time is different, how every time I'm trusting you, how every time I'm believing you!
You're sorry? You want me to close this subject and leave it to you to deal with? You don't want me to think about it because it hurts me and it makes me cry? You don’t want me to think about it because it’s effecting our relationship?

I feel stupid.. I feel stupid because if I knew someone else was going through the same thing I am going through I would say leave the guy he is not worth it! Leave the guy he doesn’t wanna be with you! Leave the guy because if he wants you he will do his best to be with you! I feel stupid because I can’t do this with you.. I feel stupid even when I know if you want me you will try harder, I can’t leave you! I feel stupid that I cry at night over my stupidity! I cry because you’re hurting me and I can’t let you go! I cry because I love you so much and you’re not appreciating it! What is hard? What is hard about us being together? You somehow make me think that all this will go eventually.. That this won’t work.. That I am a person who you are holding on until you find someone else who you wouldn’t hesitate in being with.. I am stupid.. Because even when I know all this.. Even when I know you can do better.. Even when I know you can try harder.. I still love you...

Sometimes it's difficult to see the picture when you're inside the frame... Perhaps that’s why it’s difficult for me to move on.. Because even when all these stuff are hurting me so much I still believe that you love me.. I still believe that you loved me like no one else did.. Maybe, I am scared to let you go because I won’t find someone who will love me as much as you do.. Maybe I am wrong.. & maybe I am right.. I just don’t wanna live in the shadow any more...

Jena Bakery

A few days ago was my birthday, my dearest brought me a delicious chocolate cake! Somehow here in Bahrain most of people buy their cakes from la chocolat or Lilou, which both are really good, but to break this I got a real good cake from Jena Bakery! I totally loved it! The cake I got was full of CHOCOLATE!!! & I also got the chocolate diamonds which was also so delicious!!

I even took it with me to work and all the people at work complimented the cake! One said that even when he doesn’t like dessert he really liked this cake!
To be honest I have never been there, but I am planning to order from it soon! My mom also told me to order a cake for our family gathering!

So, let’s take a deeper look at Jena Bakery:

about Jena Bakery:

""One day I read a book called 'Like Water for Chocolate' and found my calling. It was a tale about longing, love, magic and food. The heroine was born in the kitchen, was passionate about food and possessed the ability to create strange dishes that evoked different emotions in people.

The book confirmed to me a feeling that I always had; what I was doing in my free time as a hobby- the food fairs, the cooking courses, the food literature- was actually what I should pursue as a career. This was my passion and I was ignoring it the whole time.

A chance meeting with an old friend - who later became my supportive business partner - put the Jena project on a roll. And with the help of an amazing support team, I was able to formally produce Jena desserts.

The idea behind the creation of Jena was to provide high quality, elegant desserts that taste like they were baked at home. Just like the heroine in 'Like Water for Chocolate', I believe I posses the ability to give happiness and pleasure to others through food. With this I want to be of help to everyone. To a housewife who has unexpected guests and needs a last minute dessert, to the person who is driving back home after a long workday and is craving the comfort of a cupcake or a brownie and to every person who wants to celebrate any special occasion of the year. I also just started to cater for corporate events, weddings and supply many restaurants with our desserts.

I do hope that I can help lessen people's stresses and be of servitude to them using my passion.

The best feeling in the world is to do what you love. Everyday I come to Jena, I get to experience that.""
