Thursday was ‘Professional Day’ at school where the girls were to dress up in professional attire in relation to what they aspired to be when they get older. I’ve never seen so many doctor getups in my life lol but they were cute with briefcases and surgical masks. Our ‘teacher contribution’ you could say, was to have our class be a station for students to participate in some kind I activity ie. dance studio, cafe etc. We had planned to have a dance studio but that idea was quickly taken by another class so my girls and I decided to do nails💅 better yet, why not have a salon/spa where we could do nails, hair, and massages! My aide had this cute portable massage chair she was able to bring in and I figured we’d do salon type snacks?! lol but it turned out to be a pretty sweet station complete with sounds of the ocean to create that spa-like ambience which everyone loved! Welcome to 2B’s Salon!

I never thought myself one to be smitten by a t-shirt. then T-Shirt Policy London happened and its become a bit of a guilty habit since then! I’m sure someone or another reading this has seen one of their infamous tees on my instagram as they seem to be recurrent in daily outfits lol but I absolutely adore them. For those who have no idea what I’m on about, here’s a blurb from their online store: A British brand, launched by the London-based designer, Natasha Petafi. The collection includes t-shirts and sweatshirts – both very famous for the sheer quality of the fabrics and finishing; as well as the designs and eye-catching prints which never fail to be items of desire. T-shirt Policy London is definitely a niche and its clientele is very stylish, international and loyal- ranging from girls who are posh and dressy; loving late afternoon teas with macaroons as well as the classic rock Chic who is out there and everywhere. They have also done a collab with another favourite, The Hafsa Lodi Label which are oh so cool! A Ramadan inspired tee alongside the more recent ‘Tutus, and Turbans’ one fit perfectly into their collection. I’ve… View Post

The third annual Arab-African summit took place in Kuwait this week (19th-20th) and it just so happened that we had a ginormous storm from about the 18th-20th! I’ve noticed that when Kuwait does something, it’s more of a ‘go big or go home’ type deal. As the hosts of the summit, everything was straightened into tip-top shape from the landscaping of palm trees to putting up flags of all the countries participating in the summit (which was really cool!). We have this big roundabout near us and there were flag poles placed around it as well as on the highway and bridges which I thought was a pretty sweet welcome on the part of Kuwait. So because this summit was a big deal and there would be a lot of cars on the road and many dignitaries were staying in surrounding hotels etc. etc., the ministry decided to give everyone the day off on Tuesday! Apparently last year there was way too much congestion and the important people couldn’t get to their events on time so they changed it up this year. The night before the holiday though (Monday night), was the crazy storm which had been brewing throughout the… View Post

So we basically had a Halloween celebration at our school; it was just dubbed ‘costume’ day lol the girls came to school dressed up, surprisingly in Halloween attire (witches, pirates, etc.) as did some teachers. I wasn’t expecting there to be a big roo-raa as we have back home for Halloween but it was close to it which was surprising being a Muslim country and all, but oh well! Here are some pictures of our day!
