Will I am writing a blog about fashion, I just thought its right to add my personal and inspired styles!

A Movember to Remember

Some might know what Movember means and what it stands for, here in Kuwait not all of us knew about. I myself didn’t know what it meant and what it really stands for. However, I went on the internet and goggled it. I found out what it was about and what was the TRUE cause behind it. YES I was truly amazed!

The information that I am about to share with you has been copied of Wikipedia:

“Movember (a portmanteau word from moustache and “November“) is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer and associated charities. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at Movember.com.[1] The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health.

Origins

Seven Nightly News aired a story in 1999 featuring a group of young men in Adelaide, South Australia who originated the name “Movember” and the idea of growing moustaches for charity during the month of November.[12] In the news report, members of the Adelaide-based “Movember Committee” explained how they came up with the idea for Movember one night in the pub. The group started with 80 men from Adelaide and interstate, and aimed to raise money for the RSPCA through selling T-shirts in what they termed “Growing whiskers for whiskers”.[12] The committee remains uninvolved with the wider Movember movement and claims to have coined the term “Movember” in 1999

In 2004, an unrelated group in Melbourne, Victoria organised an event where 30 men would grow a moustache for 30 days in order to raise awareness for prostate cancer and depression in men. This group would later become the Movember Foundation charity.

The Movember Foundation has since raised $174-million worldwide after spreading to South Africa and Europe, reaching North America in 2006.[6][7] In 2010, participants in the United States alone raised over $7.5 million.

Controversies

In November 2007 at Scots College in Wellington, New Zealand, several graduating students were banned from end-of-year prizes for growing moustaches and the college threatened to ban a senior student from their NCEA examinations (official secondary school qualification) for growing a moustache during November.

In 2007, the Movember Foundation events were featured on Australian tabloid current affairs program Today Tonight, which accused the foundation of spending a disproportionate amount on running costs and high salaries for its directors. The financial summary of the Australian 2008 Movember campaign listed campaign costs (administration and fundraising) as being 8% of the total amount raised.In 2007, campaign costs were listed as 9% of total amount raised.”

Will I did my own contribution for this month Movember, a way to show my support. The main idea of this month is to grow a moustache (will men should at least). Okay I MIGHT have some peach fuzz on my upper lip, but that is NOT ENOUGH to show my support for the cause :p. So I went on and created my own looks of moustaches. Hope you like them as much as I enjoyed creating them :D.

My four moustache looks for Movember!

These moustache looks that I have created are inspired by some pictures that I have seen over the internet. I know they are funny and are over exaggerated, but hey lets create something fun for all of us to enjoy :D. The concept behind these styles comes from men that have different hair colour and fashion styles towards moustaches. I hope you enjoy these looks and please COMMENT which is your favorite LOOK! 😀

The other reason why I created these styles was for a contest here in Kuwait. The contest is sponsored by a Kuwaiti magazine called “City Pages”. To check out their magazine go to the their website CityPages !

My Friday Family Look

One of my cousins come over today to have breakfast with my mum and I. It was like a morning PJ party with all of us straight from bed to the breakfast TABLE :p! Then my mum remember that her uncle (my great uncle) has a family lunch every Friday. It’s been MONTHS since we’ve been there. I realized that I don’t have much school work to work on, so I wanted to tag along. Plus they make YUMMY FOOD!

The Super Casual Look

Today was a very unproductive day for me, I didn’t do much. I didn’t even go to uni. My mum was feeling sick and wasn’t able to take me to uni :(. On the other hand I stayed home finishing some school work and stuff around. Then after my mum had to go to work and my brothers were out, which that left me all alone at home. So I called on of my really close friends to come over for tea (GREEN TEA). We stayed in talked and ordered in some food. I didn’t get dressed up or anything, we were staying at home. So I just had to look presentable yet feel comfortable!

SUPER COMFY!

My Fast DAY Look

Today after uni my mum and I went out for a late breakfast to spend some quality time together <3. She took me to Fauchon (at 360 Mall Kuwait) and after that we went for a little shopping spree. At the cafe my mum ordered the English Breakfast, and I ordered the Fauchon Breakfast. After that mum wanted to buy some clothes for work and I helped her to pick out some stuff (I’m such a LOVELY DAUGHTER!) :D. For that, my mum got me a top from Ted Beaker where I will be showing in a later blog!

 

The Fauchon Breakfast

I really enjoyed this breakfast! It had many of my favorite things; fruits, poached eggs, smoked turkey (it originally came with smoked salmon, but I don’t really like salmon), a variety of pastries and jam, I LOVE JAM! This somewhat of a healthy breakfast well compared to what I usually eat. It was filled with YUMMINES! ❤

The Young Girl Look

So I got some black pants tailored a few weeks ago and I only got them yesterday. This is the first time I get bought tailored, but this was the first time I went to the textile market and bought material to tailor it into something. On top of that, that was even the first time I went to the textile market (in Kuwait it’s called Blookat) thanks to my cousin that took me there! ❤ I was happy to see the different types of materials and textiles and get to see that they can be so detailed. However, I wanted to tailor something casual to see how it would turn out, and now I LOVE MY NEW BLACK PANTS! ❤

One another side, I wore this look for uni and then I went to the salon with my friend to get our nails done. After that we went to see our old boss (my cousin) at Lab8, we sat there for a bit and had some coffee. I MISS that place so much! We got our nails done at Fish Nail Spa and then we went to Beauty Image to get our lips waxed.

I feel so small! 😀

The Zebra-Jungle look!

So today I thought of going a bit wild! I’m not really the type of girl that wears animal prints, but I realised that I liked animal print tops that wear a bit long and that I was able to pay around with them. So when my mum got me this zebra print top I loved it!! So going to uni in a wild look, now that is a first time for everything! 😀

The Humidity Look

In Kuwait a week ago it was very humid, the humidity level was high. I don’t know the percentage of it but the stickiness in the air was unbelievable! I had so many things to do that day; I had to go to the gym, meet up with my cousin, have lunch with and just hang out. For starters I needed to wear something that wouldn’t let me sweat as much, and the answer was something COTTON! If I wore jeans it would be the biggest mistake or anything that contained polyester.  Make-up was a NO NO on that day, it would have been very bad for the skin. The IDEAL thing for me to wear when its humid is a dress, and that’s what I wore :D.

The best part was that the dress was GREEN! My favourite colour

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Sunglass: Vogue
  • Dress: Cost
  • Slippers: Graceland
  • Gym Bag: Armani
  • Bag: LV
  • Watch: Casio
  • Stud Earrings: H&M
  • Watch: Casio
  • Bracelet: Cartier

Stay Lovely,

Back to GYM Look

Yesterday I went back to the gym after two months of NOT GOING! With my summer classes, Ramadan and sleeping at my uncle’s house I didn’t have much time to go to the gym :(. Luckily my uncle had a swimming pool that we swam in regularly, but what’s the use when I was EATTING LIKE A PIG! The sad part is I gained all the weight that I lost when I was going to the gym. Anyway I am back to the gym :D! So now I will keep steady and go to the gym  regularly.

This is what I wore when I to the gym, when I got there I changed my shirt and shoes.

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Sunglass: Gucci
  • T-shirt: H&M
  • Sweatpants: Mark & Spancer (M&S)
  • Slipers: Gina

Salon: Jaz & Joy

In my post “Out with MAMA of to France”, I mentioned that she and I went to a salon called Jaz & Joy to get ourselves pampered before she leaves for her trip. This is the salon that my mum usually goes to, to me it was my second time. The first time I went Jaz & Joy, I got my hair styled for a wedding, manicure-pedicure and my eyebrows reshaped. I really enjoyed the services that they provided and the STAFF WAS REALLY FRIENDLY! This is time I went and got a hair-treatment that was fruit based, change of nail polish and henna design on my hands.

This is the hairstyle was done by Jaz & Joy to a wedding I attended mid of summer2012.

The makeup was done by me. This was the first time that I styled my hair in a “modern” fashion for a wedding. I was very self-conscious of my hair because of that reason. However, by the end of the night I really did love my hair and the compliments that I received!

Henna tattoos on fingers, and my name “Noufa” on the inside of my rest.

I really like how the henna came out! I forgot what the name of the nail-polish colour that I applied, I know it’s a green essie colour. The hair-treatment that I got smells REALLY GOOD! My hair feels soft after it and looks a lot healthier.

The location of Jaz & Joy:

  • Area: Al-Shaab Al-Bahri-Kuwait
  • Block: 8
  • Street: Al-Kandy
  • Building: Mohammad Nasser Al-Arbash
  • Floor: 1  (Next to Flex Fitness)

To Contact Jaz & Joy:

 

Stay Lovely,
