A Farewell ..






To Harry Potter, it's been an amazing series of movies that sure kept us on our toes !
I felt like crying watching the last movie, anyone felt the same?
I thought I'd share some of the pictures I took from my last visit to Orlando Florida, the "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter "

Welcome to Hogsmede !


Many sweet lil' shops, the infamous Honeydukes of course selling assortments of candy bars and sweets.


Funky looking chocolates !


Pretzels coated with yougurt !





The "Owl Post" Selling a variety of Harry Potter theme garments and ofcrouse an actual size broom stick just in case you fancy a fly outta hogmede, that's Colin by the way posing with the broom ! hehe





All kinds of magic sticks you pick one depending on date of birth mine was Hermoine Grainger !
I got one for joy !





Cute lil' note book featuring Hogwarts uniform !




And ofcourse the wanted billboard !
And the best for last, Hogwarts Castle !




You enter the castle and take a tour around the place, you get the feel of the movie as everything looks surreal !
Walking along the corridors of Hogwarts and Dumbldore chamber the end of the tour you take  " The Forbidden Journey" a 3D ride in Hogwarts I got gooebumps all throughout the ride but I loved !




It's beyond an enchanted journey, if you're a no. 1 fan of Harry Potter then I highly advice you to visit the place sometime soon !
I truly felt like a child in a candy store, absorbing and gasping at every detail !
And guess what ? they even serve Butter Beer *non-alchoholic* a sweet chilled drink !
Farewell Harry Potter !

Over the Luna



This weekend, I had an invitation to try dinner at Luna restaurant / Hotel Missoni Kuwait which is a mediterranean  restaurant located at the 18th of the hotel.

Greeted by the lovely team, snapped pictures here and there then found our table, 3 diferrent menus to choose from , Tapas, the main menu, drinks & last the desserts.





         The lounge area




Private seating area , loved it and the scenery is breathtaking !





Complimentary crisps and sugar coated nuts slight spiked with chili , very yummy !





Bread basket and complimentary tomatoe paste dip, I liked the olive bread the most but didn't wanna eat more to leave more soace for the other dishes.



Drinks : Mora Julep : berries, lime, mint & gingerale very tasty
Giardino: Aromatizzato : Pomegranate, cinammon, gingerale, sweet almond & fresh lemon it wasn't my cuppa very weird taste and had a foamy soapy taste to it but the first one was pretty good !

Moving on to Tapas:


Grilled tiger prawns, the sauce was outta this world and it was presented on a bed of diced tomatoes soo fresh and soo yummy !



As recommended by our lovely waiter, Sweet & Sour quail lollipops very tasty and different a dish my mom would highly appreciate !




Spicy fried potatoes with garlic green chili & coriander very simple yet very tasty !





Caramelized chicken livers, soo good the livers were big, full of flavour and  I couldn't stop eating this dish !




For main course we shared Slow Cooked lamb with truffled mashed potatoes & dry fruit relish the meat was cooked to perfection I couldn't stop eating I loved itttt! But if I'm to order it next time minus the dry fruit I'm not a big fan of raisins at all !



And the happy ending is the  chocolate lava cake, hot hazelnut & dates its really good but needs a lil' bit more chocolate , don't worry it got polished off in no time ! Hehe




  Check out this cool sparkling water bottle, very funky !
 & Finally my outfit :




I wore a missoni top with matching scarf, Topshop blazer & jeans.


Fun night out , thnx Eshda3wa for joining and Nikki Luna Manager for the lovely invite and not to forget Luna team they did a wonderful job.
I'm still daydreaming about the slow cooked lamb, so thats my going back ticket !

Food for Thought








Chris & Emily, two teenagers who became inseperable since birth both seal a suicide pact , suddenly things get outta hands and Chris gets charged for murdering and discovers her pregnancy who she manages to hide from her family and Chris.
Breathtaking and full of suspence story, I was in between not believing that Chris shot Emily but later I became in doubt that he must have killed her .
The grief of her family, the shock of her boyfriend and how teenage love can get so complicated.
Among all Jodi Picoult books, by far it's the best book !





Pack a Bag









A fellow blogger " Just Noonstarted “Pack a Bag” campaign is a campaign with no rules, its not based on an organization nor a group, you don’t have to stick with a certain organization, all you have to do is pack an old bag that you don’t need anymore and pack it with clothes, shoes, accessories, toys and whatever you think is suitable for donating and send it to whoever you think needs it the most. Your maid, tea boy, cleaning lady at work, poor people around you like a neighbour maybe, you can send them to africa or refugee camps.



It doesn’t matter who you are, where you are, which country your from, there’s no rules or restrictions to this campaign, so whoever you think needs it the most, just donate it.
this campaign starts from kuwait and hopefully will reach the rest of the world,  calling all bloggers, readers and “Charity Enthusiasts” to help spread the word.

So come on, hurry up and pack your bag !

Recent Purchase






I spend endless hours in my bathtub, so I'm in a constant lookout for good bubble bath products.
My preference would be something very foamy , smells nice & moistrising !
Suprisingly this products has a sweet  coconuty smell, one capfull produces massive bubbles and leaves my skin extra soft having shea butter among its ingeredients.

Lunch Hour



 (First picture taken from MeBlogging )




Rocca  & Pasta Salad
I loved the rocca finished it all by myself, the pasta salad I honestly can't say I only took one bite and I don't know why the employee reheated the salad , but my friend enjoyed it nonetheless.



Pepperoni Pizza wrap & Mushroom Panini
I loved the pizza but it had way too much pepperoni if it was a lil' less would taste wonderful or even without pepperoni it wouldn't harm but the mushroom panini really lacked taste and flavour not sumthing to remember , me and my friend each shared a half I only took two bites !


Pick
