3) Avocado Yogurt Face Mask

This avocado face mask is also a great one for people who need to pump up the moisture in their skin and is one of my favorites for the cold winter months.

rb-facial-mask-2-0809-de

Isn’t that great news? A completely unwanted-hairless face through no pain! I’m gonna try it out soon 😛

Facial Hair Scrub:

  • 1 tsp ground coffee
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • And a little bit of water to make this into a paste

Very gently exfoliate your skin with it and keep it on for 5-10 mins and then rinse off. Do this once a week

Facial Hair Mask

After exfoliating, use this mask, you’ll need:

  • Gram flour (Besan)
  • Curd
  • Pinch of Turmeric

Use enough Gram flour and Curd to make it a paste, ok? But keep the turmeric to a pinch only, or else your face might turn orange (or so I’ve heard xD)

Now keep this paste on for 20 mins and then rinse it off with cold water. Not only does this get rid of unwanted hair but also lightens up your face.

Dumb Girl

So there’s this girl working half-assed at this well-known company in Kuwait, and she’s applying for this oil company, and you know what dear old daddy said? If she gets to the interview part she should lie to the interviewers and tell them she’s engaged so that she wouldn’t have to work late (she’s not, obviously).

She already barely does any work for the company she is now working in, and she makes sure to pretend to work so that she wouldn’t have to actually work on anything, and also when she does get work she makes sure to drag it for the entire day. Oh, and the work she does is always wrong and has serious mistakes that if not caught could cause major issues for the company. Oh, and also the most basics thing that one would learn in university and also requires common sense, well, she fails in it… Why do people not complain about her? Because the people who don’t work close with her think she’s a “sweet girl”.

Aha, so that makes it OK that she’s causing issues for the company?

Sigh, and here is my friend working his ass off at the company but because she’s a girl she gets these excuses and passes.

Such things makes me embarrassed to be a girl, I would rather work my ass off and make a reputation for myself instead of being considered a “sweet girl” but “because I’m a girl” it’s ok that I make such (serious) mistakes and such.

Man, I knew her in university, her naivety and dumbness pissed me off. Thank God I only had 1 class with her or I would have shredded her, and so help me God if I meet her know I will break her for being such a useless existence in the world, and getting away with it.

This Time Period + Arranged Marriage = Forever Alone (or Forever Depressed)

wpid-arranged-marriage

Ok, so I have to say I’m fuckin’ tired of hearing my friend wanting to get married, yet she says that it’s a taboo to talk to guys on a personal level.

Are you fucking kidding me??

Ok, let me dissect her narrow views in social relationships. I understand she’s an extremely religious person and would die before having a boyfriend/girlfriend type of relationship, however, she NEEDS to be able to talk to guys and deciding for herself whether they’d be husband material or not, and the first damn step to that is actually becoming friends with guys, since that’s the best way to get to know someone.

She keeps having old men or creepy unstable guys asking for her hand in marriage, and then she complains.

Ummm… duh. Arranged marriage these days are a sign of desperation and being unable to find someone, it’s kind of like going on a dating website – except in dating websites you are able to get to know the person way more before deciding to freakin’ marry them.

Also, what sane young guy would want to do arranged marriages???

1.Most of them already have girlfriends they plan on being with and don’t need mommy to hook them up with a bride who sits at home waiting to be called by the ‘perfect’ guy.

2. They end up falling for their friend who goes to university with them, or works at their job place, and then the guy ends up calling her family to ask to marry her

Notice that both include communication and friendship between both guy and girl???

If you don’t notice, good luck staying unmarried at your family’s house for the rest of your life, maybe start up a knitting business or something.

If you plan on sitting around to have someone amazing call and ask for your hand in marriage, while you don’t even talk to guys, or befriend them or even show what an awesome person you are – who the fuck are you expecting to call?? Your imaginary friend from kindergarten or something???

Seriously, grow up and open your brain (if you are close-minded) the world didn’t end 50 years ago, you know.

Worried “designer”

One of my book covers of my "series"

One of my book covers of my “series”

I have to be honest, I hate being a graphic design major in AUK. I feel like I’m restricted and not allowed to go far out artistically.. In 2 of my classes of this semester that just ended for me, I kept getting low grades for works I worked hard on. I kept getting positive feedback of my works from many successful graphic designers, however my professors seem to have a problem with it. When asking fellow students, they suggested to not put too much effort in it, which is how they’ve been getting good grades… yeah, go figure. I then started doing that towards the end of my semester and surprise surprise!!! I started getting good grades??? So is that the secret here?? :/ In my other class, I thought I was doing well until the second project in which she told us to design a product about ourselves – so I did. I created artworks and made 3 mini books (a series) out of them, focusing mainly on the cover artwork since that would be the part describing who I am. At first she liked it, but kept asking whether they were my works, I assured her it was and she seemed to believe me and wanted me to print out separate copies for her. The second time when she checked up the progress on our projects she looked at me with this suspicious condescending look and asked, “You did this? You?” I replied yes I did, and she was like, “You used brushes I’m guessing.” I said “No, I painted this on Photoshop” her reply, “You painted this? Aha”

…….

….

I once again assured her yes I did, and when giving in the project I provided her with a CD on which I had 2 step-by-steps of my works, (the other file of my 3rd artwork was erased thanks to the crashing of my laptop). For the 3rd project we had to make a booklet for that product, I once again had to use the artworks I had made for my book series, and also made more illustrations for the booklet. When she saw them she once again questioned me about them suspiciously and it definitely didn’t sound like she believed me!!! I had provided her with proof and still she didn’t believe me. I don’t know if she keeps forgetting each encounter with my works, or she just seriously doubts I worked on them.

Now I’m extremely worried if I’m going to fail my class because apparently my works are too good to be mine, in her view -_- God, I guess I’ll find out if I passed or failed next week, wish me luck.

Grand Cinemas

 

So last weekend I went with my love to Grand Cinemas, and we went to watch Skyfall in the VIP section; I didn’t want him to get seats in the VIP section because, well, 10KD per ticket! In my eyes, that’s too much for a bit over an hour worth of movie that’s for sure censored.

So let’s see, the popcorn.. 😦 There was salt and I think butter, but no caramel 😦 I’m not really much of a sweet tooth, but cinema without caramel popcorn just ain’t right! Anyway, we went to the VIP lobby section, ordered our snacks (well my love did, I was still full from the dinner and dessert we just had :P) so then we headed to the cinema itself, the snacks they would bring to us once we were seated.

During the movie, they brought us little free snacks and drinks in champagne glasses (no no not alcohol duh :P) and the seats… oh lord, the seats! They were awesome! Soft, reclining chairs for us to be able to lay down while watching the movie! The only complaint I have about the seating is that it’s too far spaced from the person I came with 😦 The seats were all in rows of 2, and there was such a wide table separating my guy and I, so that really sucked for us. I mean, I wanna at least be able to hold his hand >_>

Now, about the censorship, the only thing censored was the sex act itself, everything else, including the “foreplay” that leads to the sex was uncut – Good!!!! I mean, there’s nothing we can really do about the complete censoring issue, but at least here not unnecessary stuff was cut. Now, I’m not sure if this is only the case because we went to VIP, maybe the regular side has more things cut? I’m not sure, and I’ll have to find out sometime soon.

So yeah, only complaint was being too far from my dude, and the lack of caramel popcorn 😮
