Out Of the Mouth of Babes

Written by Stinni on Thursday, March 13, 2008

My daughter has been sick for the past week. Her voice is hoarse. Over breakfast, my daughter was talking about something and my son said, "Your voice isn't nice. You need antennas." You know, to become clear like a radio station in the car.

My daughter is three and still in diapers. We were sitting in the living room and I was explaining to her how she was a big girl now and she shouldn't be in diapers. "Your father doesn't wear diapers, your brother doesn't wear diapers, I don't wear diapers..." My son chimed in, "Yes you do. They're called Always."

Early morning, I woke up and was channel surfing. I came across The Omen 4. My children came into the room and saw a nun character. My daughter said, "She has a necklace like Desta!" (Desta is our housekeeper.) My son said, "Oh yeah, it's a Gee-ZAHS necklace." "Gee-ZAHS?" "Yeah, Gee-ZAHS, it's a Gee-ZAHS necklace." "Who's Gee-ZAHS?" "He's like Allah, he makes people. Do you know him?" "Yes I do."


I'm Not a (Real) Plastic Bag

Fake Anya Hindmarch Bag

I bought it because I liked the rope handles. I had no idea the original bag by Anya Hindmarch is hugely popular in the UK and US. The originals are selling for hundreds of dollars/pounds on e-bay.

As for me, I use plastic bags and use them to line my small trash bins. The only exception is when I shop at Carrefour, and then I use their bags that they sell for like 200fils each.

It's a really, really bad knockoff but hey, it's a cute bag and you can walk around feeling superior to people who use plastic bags for only KD3.900 at Sanaa.

Personally, I like this bag much better:


La Mer

Last summer, a cousin of mine gave me a bag filled with samples from high-end cosmetic companies. One of the samples was La Mer cream.

I've used it three times so far and all I can say is that it's exactly like Nivea cream; the one that comes in the blue metal tub. It smells the same, feels the same and acts just like Nivea.

Save yourself a ton of money and opt for Nivea if you're looking for a heavy-duty moisturizer.

Back on Blogger

Written by Stinni on Thursday, March 06, 2008

I felt too constrained on Wordpress so now I'm back to Blogger. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a way to import my blog on Wordpress to this blog so I suppose I'll just keep the one on Wordpress but will consider this to be my primary blog.

The great thing about Blogger is that I can have a real stat counter (who knew I still had regular readers?) and I can choose from thousands of templates and not be stuck with a chosen few.

I now feel inspired to write again.
