The best part of Eid for me is the new clothes part and I can safely say most girls feel the same way too! I remember when I was younger I couldn’t wait for my mum to tell me it’s time to go and buy Eid clothes. For one thing I would take a day off school just to go shopping with my mum for new clothes; this would be in the morning when the malls are less crowded and empty. It’s the most silent time for shopping. I would go and pick out 3 outfits for Eid and I couldn’t wait to go and let my family see my NEW EID CLOTHES!
As I got older getting ready for Eid became a bit more complicated. I had to go to the salon get myself pampered and ready for Eid, get my hair, nails and everything done! Back then I would by 3 outfits for Eid, but now I would only buy one outfit (and sometimes a new bag to go with it) because that outfit would already be THE PRICE OF 3 (but not always)!I would only wear that outfit for the family gathering and then maybe if we went to “some place nice”. However, in all matters getting ready and pampering myself for Eid is so much fun and the feeling is just amazing! 😀

Before I left the house I wore my Rolex watch which I always wear (it’s mentioned in other posts) and I even wore my black Chanel that is mention in my post “The Simple Summer Look”. I will try later on to post that bag on a separate post to show it more clearly.
One the first day Eid, we woke up to have the early to have the BIG Eid breakfast, then comes the afternoon and it was time for the Eid lunch. My family and I went “Taal” for some delicious Indian food. We were so hungry that we order so much FOOD!
The food was very YUMMY! I ordered chicken curry, green rice and lemon juice with minte.
Taal is located in Al Argan Complax at Al Beda Roundabo, Ta’awan Street-Salmiya-Kuwait.
To contact Taal:
As I mentioned in an earlier article “Henna Time!” I applied false eyelashes; it was one of the things I got pampered too. This is the second time that applied them, but last time they didn’t last long because I didn’t take care of them. For both of the times I got the service the eyelashes done at Beauty Image salon (the salon is not paying for these articles, I just like going there). It only took about 20 minutes to apply them and they last for 2 weeks if maintained properly. I like them they look very natural but still make a GREAT statement.
It’s like having mascra for 24/7 and you don’t get to feel them at all!
So what do you think about the eyelashes, did you ever get false eyelashes? For how long did they last?
Eid is here! I know I am a fashion blogger but still I have to write about Eid. After all Eid is all about NEW clothes YUMMY food which is what my blog is really all about :D. However the most important side of Eid are the family gathering and the connecting time, for me AT LAST I GET TO HAVE BREAKFAST! The Breakfast Eid is very important to my family, I wake up to the smell of omelettes to freshly baked bread in the morning, it the best feeling! But come one we all can’t wait to get money from our relatives!! Life at its best you think?? I say you’re never too old or even young for that 3idya!
Enjoy your new clothes, your Eid breakfasts and lunches. Have fun with your family and friends.
So today I went back to Beauty Image salon to get my last minute pampering for Eid. While I was there I got my hair blow-dried and added false eyelashes (will be mention on a later blog). What amazed me while I was there was the amount of girls coming in to get Henna on their hands for Eid. I liked that still there are people that still keep this tradition and take it seriously, but what amazed me more was the amount of women who came in to get Henna hand tattoos and brought their daughters with them. It makes me happy to see that this tradition is a life and well, but now it has a modern twist! 😀
Here are some pictures of Henna hand tattoos:
Just to make things clear, these Henna tatoo desgines where not taken in the salon.
Eid is knocking on the door and we have to get ready. Girls and even boys are now doing their last minute shopping andpreparation for Eid.The exiting thing about Eid for me is that, salons all over Kuwait are filled with girls pampering themselves for Eid. Getting our hairs done, nails varnished and grooming ourselves! Girls rush to call salons book appointments on last minute notices, where some salons make a policy “first come first served”, the rush is everywhere. The salons are open long hours to serve their long waiting customers, and the day before Eid, some salons are open 24/7 to serve their highly demanding customer lines (good day to open a “one day salon”!).
The salon that I went to today is called “Beauty Image” and it’s located in Kuwait-Jabriy. This wasn’t my first time there. Let me tell you a quick story about how I came to this salon and became their loyal customer. It was 3 days before my best-friend’s wedding and I needed to get my nails done, eyebrows reshaped and so much more. I booked an appointment to this salon which now I am an X-customer of and it’s even located in Jabriya. They had my appointment all mixed up and they were very rude about it! I left that salon walking around trying to look for a salon that would take me on a last minute notice, and there was Beauty Images! They had (and still have) an amazing service and I paid half the price for all the services that I wanted that I would usually pay double the price for!

I went to the salon with two of my nieces (their mum is my cousin). One of my nieces and I had hair treatments, I had the “Bamboo-Hair-Treatment” (which is an oil) and she had the “Caviar-Hair-Treatment” (which is a cream). I did both upper and lower lip waxing and threading, where I even got a manicure and pedicure with nail polish. I really like the smell of the “Bamboo-Hair-Treatment” that I did, I feel it gave my hair more shine and the texture of my hair is much softer. My niece’s “Caviar-Hair-Treatment” made her hair seem fuller and the ends of her hair are less dry. Next month I think I will try the “Caviar-Hair-Treatment” myself and see how it works for me!
The Bamboo-Hair Treatment that I tried and I really liked. The hairdresser said that its best results would be shown if done weekly, where the caviar should be done monthly.
This week’s colour is an Essie salmon colour that is called “Tart Deco” I really like this colour. Something new for a new holiday!
I wanted to share this CUTE toe-separator that Beauty Image uses!
