Cartier Event, Bridal Exhibition Kuwait (Part 2)

Cartier is at fault of many love stories that have happened in the past decade. It will still go to inspire many to fall in love, not only with the diamonds but with the person that gives it to them. When reading the stories of the beauty icons that wore Cartier, it seem’s like your reading a fairytale. This might sound cliché, that’show we tend to feel when we listen to marvouls love stories that make the heart beat slow for it cannot belife that life can peresent it.

When that special someone has that special jewel for your beautiful skin.

 

Some of the famous women that wore Cartier for historic events are:

  • Queen Elizabeth II
  • Princess Grace Kelly
  • Elizabeth Taylor
  • Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge)

Most of these women are known for their styles and beauty. They haven’t only affected us fashion wise but made us girls dream of being princess and more empowered. We have come to respect these women and admire them. I for one am a HUGE fan of Elizabeth Taylor and think that she is the beautiful woman.

Queen Elizabeth wearing Williamson Diamond brooch

The Williamson Diamond is known to be the BEST pink diamond ever discovered. It was found by the Canadian geologist and royalist Dr. John Thorborn Williams who is the diamond is named after. It was found at Mwadui mine in Tanganyika that was owned by Dr. John. He presented the uncut stone weighing at 54.5 CARATS to then Princess Elizabeth as a wedding gift.

After that the diamond was cut by Briefel and Lemer of Clerkenwell into a 23.6 CARATS in a brilliant round shape. At first the diamond was considered to be used at the coronation. Instead the dazzling round shaped diamond was placed as the centre of a brooch of a jonquil flower designed by Frederick Mew Cartier in 1953. The brooch contains 170 small brilliant-cut diamonds, 12 baguette-cut diamonds and 21 marquise diamonds, which were used to form the petals, stalk and the leaves of this brooch. Now that’s a BROOH worth having!

Grace Kelly wearing her engagement ring of the film set High Society

Princess Grace Kelly’s engagement was itself as one of the GLAMOURISE events in modern day history. Not only because a stylish Hollywood actress was getting married to a prince, not just a prince but the prince of Monaco. What really made the headlines then was the ring that Grace Kelly was given. The ring was a FABOULSE 10.47 CARTS the first BIG ring to be given out by a European Monarchy. The reason why Prince Rainier III gave that big ring to Grace Kelly was so he could fit in of the glamour of Hollywood and there well known engagement rings.

On January 1956 the prince gave and announced his engagement to Grace Kelly. The ring that he presented here was platinum from Cartier, where it had an emerald-cut diamond 10.47 CARATS with two baguette-cut diamonds on each side. This ring was perfect showing the delicacy of the actress and that it showed the belief that Grace had that LESS IS MORE when it comes to style. THAT IS AN ENGAGMENT RING WE ALL GIRLS DREAM OF!

 

Elizabeth Taylor at Podium to Present Academy Award

Elizabeth Taylor wearing the “Burton Diamond” at Princess Grace Kelly’s 40th birthday party at Monaco

History has shown us so many great love stories, sadly most are fiction. However there is love story that is true and has inspired other lovers, the love that we between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The love they had lasted for decades even though they have been divorced twice. When asked they use to refer to each other as their greats love even though both have remarried.

Richard Burton bought a ring from Cartier that then it cost him 1.1 million dollars, all just he insulted Elizabeth’s hands. Then after she saw that the diamond 69.42 CARATS was too BIG for a ring so she had made into a necklace.

 The stone was found in Premier Mine in South Africa in 1966 which weighed 241 CARTS! It was then cut by Harry Winston to 69.42 CARTS into a pear shape. Burton bought the diamond from Cartier to present it to Taylor. I personally wouldn’t say no to that necklace, would you?

Kate Middleton waring the Cartier Halo Tiara on her wedding to Prince William

The Halo Tiara was made in 1936 by Cartier and was purchased by the Duke of York, who later became King George VI before 3 week becoming king (Elizabeth’s Father) for his Duchess wife Queen Elizabeth’s mother (known later as Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother). Queen Elizabeth lent Kate Middleton the Halo Tiara which was given to her on her 18th birthday by her mother.

The tiara was borrowed then by The Queen Mother’s daughter Princess Margaret to wear the Halo Scroll Tiara to the 1953 coronation. This is when then the Queen Elizabeth was crowned. Later in 1973 it was lent to Queen Elizabeth’s daughter Princess Anne before she received her own tiara.

Many years later the Halo Tiara was lent to Kate Middleton to wear on her wedding day, the she married Prince William. So you see this tiara has a long history and we very will kept in the family. The question is will I or you be next to borrow it? :p (fingers crossed :p )

 

Here are just some of the amazing-historic jewellery that Cartier has made and sold. We alone that there still more to come and we cannot wait to see what other remarkable diamonds we will be able to see. However, the real question, who’s next to be wearing a LEGENDAY piece from Cartier.

 

Stay Lovely,

Cartier Event, Bridal Exhibition Kuwait (Part 1)

When speaking of luxury the first thing that comes to mind is diamonds. They are a rare beauty that can be shinned on a women’s neck. The rare beauty that enlightens the love between two that want to spend years forever together. Cartier has always been my top luxury brand of diamonds. When entering any store you feel like an important person and all the fabulous jewels lay for your eyes.

For so many years red has been known as the colour of love and royalty. Cartier has chosen this symbol to make us fall in love. It makes the woman that holds the Cartier bag feel as if she is a princess.

This blog post will be split into two parts; this first part I will show you pictures of my time during the exhibition at Cartier. The second blog post I will be talking about and showing you remarkable pictures of beauty icons that are connected and have fallen in love because of Cartier.

The Cartier Bridal Exhibition was at 360 Mall. The event is called “Cartier Legendary Diamond and Bridal Exhibition” it started on the 17th of January until the 30th of January. The exhibition present’s two different mini-museums; one is an exceptional Bridal show by Cartier, and the second is a photographic museum of Cartier Legendary Diamonds.

My advice DO NOT miss this outstanding opportunity of seeing the greatest master pieces that Cartier has created the icons of our modern and ancient history. The next blog post will showcase the beautiful pieces that are shown at the museum.

Kuwaiti Desgins: ByUno

It took me almost 3 years to look for the “perfect” hoodie. I’ve been to many different stores, and I even tried looking online. Still I wasn’t able to find something that I liked. You might be asking yourself what makes a “perfect” hoodie? There are so many things that I was looking in a hoodie. First, I was searching for quality, not only by design but that in the winter months it can make me feel super warm. The second factor was that the hoodie would be long enough to wear with leggings. 😀

Yes I did found the so called PERFECT HOODIE! That was after 3 years of looking around for something that I’d like :p. I know this seems funny but hey we all get picky on certain things :p.

BBQing wth friends ❤

The hoodie that I bought was from a Kuwait designer that goes under the name ByUno. The hoodie that I got from them kept me warm as I was sick, it was super comfy. The design and quality is AMAZING! ByUno has unique designs, they inspire from high end designers; Cartier, Hermes and more! They use unique ways that they insert them on their T-shirts and hoodies they I ashore YOU will FALL in LOVE with them! ❤

Diwaan, Helping and Promoting Kuwaiti Youth

The word “Expo” has become a very common word here in Kuwait, it’s a way to help young Kuwaiti entrepreneurs to establish their businesses. This lead to so many different originations to be established, that would lend hands to those future business leaders. Now a young Kuwaiti can establish a business knowing that they will be supported by someone. One of the best and fresher organisations that I came from is Diwaan!

Diwaan is not mainly an expo, the program was built to entirely support small-upcoming Kuwaiti business and inventions. Now that’s a new twist, there aren’t many organisations here in Kuwait that supports inventers and their inventions. They give you chance to be creative with knowledge that a backbone is there. Diwaan’s “goal is to enlighten the path for Kuwaiti youth, presenting them in a professional way to major companies”. That isn’t at all, they aim to make their dream an upcoming reality!acfnvqhvgyowo3noh9t6[1]

Jassim Al Harban is the proud owner the person that has established this outstanding organization. Many Kuwaiti youth will be able to achieve so much with their help. He has an amazing team that are running it with him that came the experience for you and your upcoming projects more fun and joy. In an upcoming post I will have to publish an interview with him to get more indepthinformation.

Good news is you can go on to their website to Register and become a part of a WONDER team that is ready to help Kuwait and it’s youth. If you have something that you want to achive or a goal in mind please don’t hasitate to contact them. To contact them please press the link shown.

Give MAC (Holiday) Haul Christmas GIFT!!

Every so on MAC comes out with a limited edition line, and it it’s always been amazing! Every line is so unique and different from the other with their AMAZING designs and colour. For this season (holiday) they came out with a line that I think we haven’t seen them do before. To start with the line and the advertisement seems like it came out of Chanel or LV (I’m not saying that it did). The makeup compacts look like mine clutches and wallets that you can carry around with you that a high-class designer would have come up with. Well MAC is a high-end makeup brand with FABOULSE products. When I went online a saw the new collection my reaction was “I NEED TO HAVE SOME!” I showed my mum the products and she said she would get them as a Christmas gift and SHE DID YAY ME!! 😀

Just to point out, I haven’t used any of these products still (I got them yesterday). When I do I’ll for sure make another blog post about them and how I feel about them. I think I’m going to LOVE them. Yet still I have to wait and see.

 

The MAC products

FABULOUSNESS eye-shadow pallets

The first thing I couldn’t wait to get my hands on was the FABULOUSNESS eye-shadow pallets. In this line they have 3 pallets; FABULOUSNESS 5 Warm Eyes, FABULOUSNESS 5 Neutral Eyes and the one I got FABULOUSNESS 5 Smokey Eyes (I just LOVE smoky). The great thing about these pallets is that each pallet comes in different colours, the Warm one peach, Neutral mint-green and the Smokey one is pink <3. I wanted to get the “mint” one just because green is my favourite colour, but then I was like no I have so many neutral colours :p.  As you can see that each pallet has 5 colours.

FABULOUSNESS 5 Smokey Eyes

As I mentioned above, I just love their packaging for this collection. It’s SUPER cute, I’m already trying to come up with ideas on how I can use this compact when I run out the eye-shadow (that would be long time!). I love the soft-pink colour with the cute bow black bow (that’s removal). Plus all the colours are so CUTE and lovely I just can’t wait to try them out! Below you’ll find swatches of the eye-shadow and their names.

The swatches of the eye-shadow

The left picture “rectangle shadows” (left to right):

  • Taupeless (satin finish)
  • Satin Taupe (satin finish)
  • Love Spice (shimmery finish)

The right picture “square shadows” (left to right)

  • Vintage Allure (matt finish)
  • Black Slip (stain finish)

 

VIVA GLAM

Lip products

The Viva Glam collection for 2012 is staring Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin! The best thing about this line is that anything you purchase from it (there is only 3 products) would go to MAC Aids Fund to help those families that have been affected by Aids. That includes; men, women and children everywhere). MAC Aids Fund is a registered charity in the UK that helps all countries when needed. <3.

As I pointed out for this line MAC came out with 3 products and all of them are for lips. From this collection I got the “Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick” and the “Viva Glam Ricky Lip Conditioner. The only thing that I didn’t get was the “Viva Glam Nicky Lip-gloss” just because I don’t wear much lip-gloss to start with. With my purchase from this collection I got a free makeup bag that’s SO CUTE! It’s red-leopard print that I just LOVE.

Makeup bag, Lip conditioner and lipstick

Originally just wanted the lip conditioner from this collection, but then I saw that there was deal that if I got the lipstick with it, it would be cheaper. Plus I would get a CUTE makeup bag with it, and I really liked the colour. I can see Nicky Minaj wearing this colour it’s so here. I want to point out that the lip conditioner smells like vanilla (which I love), it’s so YUMMY (not for eating :p).

MAC Makeup Brushes

PERFECTLY PLUSH BRUSH KIT

This line is so cute, with the makeup brushes you get a matching makeup brush bag for the brushes (that was a MOUTH FULL!). From this line there are 3 kits; PERFECTLY PLUSH BRUSH KIT Mineralized (brushes and bag are peach), PERFECTLY PLUSH BRUSH KIT Advanced (brushes and bag pink) and the one I got PERFECTLY PLUSH BRUSH KIT Essential (brushes and bag mint-green). That’s one of the main reason I chose the Essential Kit is because it’s GREEN my FAVOURIT colour <3. However, I also needed good quality travel brushed so when I am traveling I could take them with me. The good thing about this kit is that it comes with 5 BRUSHES, where the other kits only have 4 brushes for the same price. The kit also has the main brushes that I need on a daily bases!

The GREEN makeup brushes!!

The Weekdays/Uni Looks

So this week I have been extremely BUSY that I didn’t have much time to come on my laptop and blog (I don’t like blogging from my phone :P). I’m so sorry if I’ve kept you waiting for my posts. Well here I am and I would LOVE to share with you my looks for this past week. All of these looks are showing you how I “normally” dress to university usually. During the winter months I like to play around and experiment with clothes more than I can do in the summer. Here in Kuwait it can get really hot and all I would want to wear is a dress or something to keep me cool. On the other hand, I still want to look my best and FASNIONABLE as much as I can!

 

Lady in Purple

I feel in love with purple dress the moment I laid eyes on it. Lately it seems I’ve been loving the colour purple on me :p (still green is my favourite colour!). To tell you the truth, as I was growing up I thought I will always dress formally, you know how business women dress and “classy women”. So for some odd reason, this look made me feel that this is the real me. This look made me feel like the “writer” and “politics lover” come out. When my brother saw me in this look he said “you look like a politician’s wife”. However, I love this look. ❤

Okay the pictures aren't very "lady" like :p lol

Okay the pictures aren’t very “lady” like :p

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Purple-wool dress: Cos
  • Grey scarf: Pull and Bear
  • Recycled Necklace: made from bike chains (from a flea market in Italy)
  • Black stockings: H&M
  • Bag: Chanel
  • Black leather boots: Russell and Bromley

 

 

Biker Chic

I’ve only worn these pleather pants once, so I wanted to wear them again. Though this time it was more of an edger look then the last look (press the link to see it). My mum keeps reminding me that I am young and to have fun with styles and fashion. When I was in middle school I wasn’t the kind of girl that was starting her hair and wearing lip-gloss, that all happened when I was in year 10 (10th grade) where I became more aware of fashion and all. For some reason this takes me bake to my hippie days. Hahaha I don’t know what a Bicker and a Hippie have in common, do you??

All is left is my bike, no I don't have one!

All is left is my bike, no I don’t have one!

 

  • Jeans vest: Zara
  • Dark grey top: H&M
  • Blue and green Shahtoosh shawl
  • Hoop earring: Forever21
  • Burgundy-pleather pants: H&M
  • Black leather flat: LV

 

Electric WOW

My mum got me this blue top, and I just loved the colour and martial. On the back it’s a T-shirt and in the front of the top it’s silk. Another thing I love about this top that it’s longer at the back and shorter at the front. Though that I was feeling quite sick, I guess you see it through the picture. I still tried looking my best! To tell you the truth now that I look at this picture I don’t really like how I put myself together.  Like: I love the top, earrings and the shoes, but I feel there is something wrong. Do you think so? I think it’s the scarf perhaps.

BLUE! BLUE! BLUE

BLUE! BLUE! BLUE

 

  • Grey long-sleeved top: Zara
  • Electric-blue top: Mango
  • Black pants: Forever21
  • Black high-tops: Buffala
  • Black Shahtoosh shawl
  • Angle-wing earrings: Alexander Wang

 

Rocker Swagy

I first called this look “Sporty Rocker Chic”, because I was wearing my Nikes :p. Then one of my followers on Instgram mentioned that there was nothing sporty about it, that it was more “Swagy” and “Kewl”. I never really have used wither words, but “Swagy” did catch my eye and I was like “HEY THAT’S WANT I’LL CALL THE LOOK!” there you go the name was born. Some pointed out the shoes don’t match, I think it did. It brought a whole new thing to the look. What do you think?

the wind was blowing <3

the wind was blowing ❤

 

  • Black leather jacket: H&M
  • Yellow and olive leopard-print scarf: Zara
  • Olive and black striped top: Zara
  • Dark blue skinny-jeans: H&M
  • Crystal studs: Claire’s
  • Grey and purple high-tops: Nike

 

Tell me what was your favourite look from this week? If you’d like to answer the questions above please comment below <3. If you think these styles are wort sharing, then DO SHARE this post.

Weekend Chalet Looks

It’s been months since I’ve been to my family’s chalet! Still I was quite sick and wasn’t able to enjoy my time and the weather as much as I hoped. Nonetheless it was a change of paste for me, and time away from my BED :P. Now that winter has come to Kuwait, the sea and the desert is much colder than it is the city area. Which lead to the fact that I needed to cover up as much as I could so I don’t get sicker. At the same time I didn’t want to layer myself with clothes and then feel hot and sweaty, SO I kept it moderate.

Food Tasting: Angelato Bakery (Part 1)

The other day my cousin was invited to a private food tasting and she was kind enough to DRAG me along with her. It was a food tasting for this new gelato-bakery that is based here in Kuwait. Well let me get something straight I am a BIG FAN of ice-cream and gelato so I can be biased here :P. No, don’t worry I’ll try and give my honest opinion. Angelato is a bakery that opened recently in Burj Jassem, all their GOODS are freshly made using natural ingredients. I enjoyed most of their LOVELY deserts and I meet some WONDERFUL people. So let’s get started and let me show you their ART!

This post is going to be split into 2 parts, the first part I will be talking about the dessert that I’ve tried and my opinion about them. On the second part, I will be showing you the display of their products. On the second part you’ll be able to see an AMAZING BLOGER that I’ve meet!

Angelato’s logo

My diploma is in Business Management, and a great deal of my studies was contracted on how logos are created. So it’s only fair for my INTELAGNCE that I do comment about their logo :P. First I would like to mention that I LOVE the PLAY on words, mixing the word “angle” with “gelato”, and then it gives us “Angelato”. The BEST thing about this name is that NO letter from both words had to be removed, just bring them both together and there you GO! Plus I love the fact the ANGLE is holding an ice-cream cone, or should I say a GELATO cone? :p

Now lets go on with the YUMMY stuff!

"Left:

I really enjoyed both of these cakes they were SUPER yummy. The carrot cake was very moist and the flavor was AMAZING. I liked how in the middle it had some raisins (and I don’t really like raisins in my food) but they were so tender that they felt as if they were the real fruit. So if you’re not a raisin fan YOU’LL still love this one. When the Lavender doom was first served is a bit hard, well because it was in the FREZZER! As it sat out for a few minutes the texture was GREAT! This cake had more of a chewy feel to it, and when you reach the middle of the doom there is a SUPRISE chocolate mousse waiting for you!

Lemongrass Pink Velvet

Lemongrass Pink Velvet

This MARVELOUS cake brought a whole new concept and taste to the pastry industry! The combination of the lemongrass mousse with the SUPER-SUPER moist raspberry cake, gives an explosion to your taste buds. The sourness of the lemongrass with the sweetness of the raspberry is just MIND BLOWIG! The texture of both the cake and mousse are just GREAT! The mousse didn’t make the cake soggy
(which is the problem with most cakes that have mousse). This was my FAVOURITE cake that I’ve tried!

Affgado

Affgado

This is their SIGNATURE drink, it’s a shot of espresso with a drizzling of chocolate. I have to tell you that this is the best coffee I have ever tasted! The SMELL of it was wonderful and made me go to a dream where all I can see is COFFEE. I am a HUGE coffee person and I can’t tell if I’m drinking quality coffee or not, and this is QUALITY coffee no doubt. The flavour of the coffee would be strong at first then it settles in the mouth quite nicely. The bitterns of the coffee is sweetened by the dash of chocolate, yet not to sweet so that you can still taste your INCREDIBLE coffee.

Left: Coffee Gelato-Macaroon  Right: Rose Gelato-Macaroon

Left: Coffee Gelato-Macaroon
Right: Rose Gelato-Macaroon

These macaroons aren’t filled with the traditional creams, its filled with LUSCIOUS gelatos. I personally ADORE any food that has rose in it, and I just LOVE the smell of rose water<3. This Macaroon did SATISFY my taste buds with the mouth-watering flavour. Not only that but the texture was super chewy and soft, just like how a DREAM macaroon should be. Sadly the coffee macaroon wasn’t as good and could have been better, both in taste and texture.

Vanilla Gelato with a Ginger Biscuit

Vanilla Gelato with a Ginger Biscuit

I’m not a big fan of ginger the taste to me is very unbearable. Then it came to this sweet gelato, its vanilla gelato with a ginger biscuit. The ginger biscuit was sweetened enough that the taste of the ginger itself was mild which I personally LOVED, and above I’m more a vanilla person then chocolate. Don’t get me wrong I still love my chocolate! ❤ So yah this was a great twist to things. The flavors came along very well and this would be one the most things I would recommend to others to try out.

I would like to give credit to my cousin Dalal that took the pictures for me. Thank you so much dear cousin <3. Go to the second part of the blog post to see their WONDERFUL display and the blogger that I meet. Press the link to go to Part 2.

Stay lovely,
