Dear stretch marks

Tuesday, 30 December 2014

Well as I promised, here's a post about one of many pregnancy problems ( stretch marks ) they appear very fast and itch! it differs from body to another and to maintain a healthy weight gain while pregnant it is always recommended that you watch your weight and not gain weight very fast, as that will most likely affect your body and your skin will be definitely affected and stretched quickly leading to the not so lovable stretch marks.





A little bump

Saturday, 20 December 2014

It's been a while I always thought of blogging about my journey and maybe helping others that a are going through the same, but unfortunately, I never had time for that being either tired or too busy.  It's been a long pregnancy ride for me 24 weeks now and can't wait to meet my little angle.  I thought I might share a few tips and even products I've been using that worked great for me and others that didn't.  I also thought of sharing some effortless and healthy dishes anyone in the same situation can make.

Eid elfitr

Tuesday, 11 November 2014

Another late post and I promise it's not the last!, so these are some snaps of the last Eid elfitr after the holy month of Ramadan, it was the first Eid away from my family it was a good one with my Mr and friends though, but I guess missing my family's presence always makes it incomplete,
praying to visit my beloved Libya soon inshAllah and just give a bear hug to mama and baba, enough chatter now I'll let you check out some of the Libyan traditional Eid biscuits, if you're interested in trying any out leave a comment I'll be glad to share the recipes :)




Our first anniversary

Friday, 7 November 2014

Late post! I know, haven't been able to blog for some time now, so I've been planning for this for a while now, looking back I figured out I really do love event planning so much and enjoy all the organizing, so the 28th of Sep was our first anniversary, I thought of setting a little indoor party just for the two of us, I thought before of having a picnic but the weather wasn't so promising, so I thought of celebrating with a wedding inspired theme.

Our wedding day

Sunday, 28 September 2014

I can't imagine a whole year just passed yes 365 days of our lives together! well since I'm getting very emotional lately and I think it's getting even worse with all the nice memories from last year and all the ( missing my family and friends and kitties ) period I'm going through! well here's just a quick look of our wedding last year.  So now let me talk you through at the Libyan way in celebrating weddings.




The pink day

Friday, 26 September 2014

So basically Henna day or Pink day as I call it, is a Libyan tradition made in weddings, that day the bride wears a Libyan pink traditional outfit gathering her family and friends and celebrate, it's usually done days before the wedding but more common just one day apart from the big day, some people prefer to do it in their homes others prefer to keep all the mess out!
