It's all about books ...


When I was little my dad used to take us every mean while to bookstores, book fairs and even when we travel it's a must-visit to bookstores there. and I do remember that he never says no when we want to buy a book actually he used to appraise our choices and sometimes recommends something so we can better learn and read! so that was something I grew up on and loved it, and thank god my husband also has a huge library.. lucky me, I really hope that I can pass that to my daughters! One of the things I look for every time is Bahrain International Book Fair that a lot of people in my country look forward too as well - which is a really nice thing.. ever since I saw those big ads that it will open in March I was so excited to go and so I went today!! unfortunately my visit was super short because I got there like 8.45 pm and it closes at 10.00 pm so I didn't really have enough time but I did get some cool stuff! 

though I love reading but I'm not really a novel's kind of person, so I like other things - I don't know what to call them but you know what I mean :D and mostly I like inspirational and motivational kind of books so that's all I bought! It's not how good you are, it's how good you want to be - Paul Arden, Whatever you think, think the opposite - Paul Arden, and let me translate it in the most appropriate way: Inspiring people - Saleh Alkhazem. 
I wanted to find something for the girls but I didn't get to the kids section but I did get them those cute puppets!! I think they're more colorful than cute :3 but let's hope it does the trick!! 
I really hope I can go before it ends but if I couldn't I'm happy with what I've got!

March 21


One of the most anticipated times of the year is March 21, why you may ask? because it is "Mother's Day!" though they deserve more than a day, still it is so beautiful to fully dedicate this day to mothers and make them feel super special, it doesn't have to be with a pricy gift or even a gift for that matter. Just a simple gesture can make a mother's heart skip a beat of happiness. Therefore, I decided to dedicate this post to a wonderful woman, my wonder woman, my mum ❤ and now that I'm a mother myself I know how much she gave us everything she could with an unconditional love that we can't no matter how hard we try to repay that! but for now all I can say is thank you god for blessing me with my mum and I LOVE YOU!

Happy mother's day ...

all time prime!!

Do you ever feel like you're a perfectionist? like you care about every little detail?! like you want that particular thing to be the best of all? as for me I would say that I do that - sometimes- yes I'm guilty!!  one of the things I tend to seek perfection in or the best of all are beauty products. I love makeup but I don't like wearing it all the time everyday so I look for something that can give me great results in terms of shine-control considering that I have an oily skin. One product that really attracted me and I've heard a lot about is The Porefessional from Benefit, but before I run and buy it I thought of trying it and to be honest even my husband noticed that my skin looked silkier! so I had it on top of my must have list, and for my luck when I finally went to buy it it was holidays season aka December and I got it with a nice package and lovely sample gifts.

the all time prime package contains the porefessional balm, Stay don't stray eyeshadow primer, and Stay flawless primer. So far it's been almost three months since I had this and I can say I LOVE the porefessional balm! it's looks beautiful on it's own, controls shine for more than 4 hours and when using it as a primer with makeup it makes it look smooth and pretty. as for the other primers I didn't like the "Stay flawless" primer it dries quickly and I couldn't blend it - I didn't really give it a second chance but I didn't like it! on the other hand the eyeshadow primer is so nice! It really shows my eyeshadow and it keeps my eye lids from creasing for like 5 hours! it can be used as a primer for the under eye concealer but I didn't really try that, maybe I should!
The sales lady was really nice to me and she gave me the porefessional license to blot blotting stick and they're real mascara - but I forgot to take a picture of it! I love mascaras that give volume more than length and "they're real" is more of a lengthening kind of mascara so I use it as a first coat then apply Dior show mascara or by itself for neutral look! but the stick I didn't really know how to use it because when I did "blot" the shiny areas of my face it kind of smudged my makeup - hmm! so I can't really say much about it! 
If there's one for sure thing to say about benefit products is they're awesome packaging!! they're so cute and appealing! 

have a nice day and Hello March!
