What`s going on ? DHL




Ahmad AL-Mosllam , a blogger and one of my tweeps post about DHL , an incident happened between his friend , and that famous company DHL .
to be honest i didn't try their services before but what happened to Ahmad`s friend was shocking here is what happened (i quote Ahmad's words)






"AbdulRahman's brother bought him a mobile while he was in the United Kingdom. He wanted to send it to him here in Kuwait. AbdulRahman specifically asked him to send it through DHL. He said "they cost more but they have a solid reputation as a world class company."






He trusted them that much, most people do.






But in the end, and even though they told him that it would take up to 5 days to arrive at AbdulRahman's door. He never received his shipment. And after two weeks of him calling them and hearing the same response "We are still investigating the matter" they decided to file a complaint. And what was their response?






"We will investigate the matter, and let you know of our decision by next week. We might pay you back up to 50% of the item's cost."






So they are not paying him the full price of the thing they have lost, or as we think, stolen. It seems like it is a huge accusation no? well, let me share with you a couple of facts, and you can be the judge of whether they stole it, or lost it but decided to steal 50% of its price. Or even lost it but not going to pay anything. (Since they said "We might pay you back" in their response to the complaint filed by AbdulRahman's brother.)






When he called them to ask about what's going on, since there was no status update, their response was that it is missing, and that they are investigating the matter. Yes, that is actually a confession of it being stolen by one of their employees. Because it never left that sort facility. It became "missing" while it was in that "sorting facility" which is probably more like a room where they keep the shipments and get them ready to be sent.










Last Tuesday, they stopped telling him "We are investigating the matter" and officially said "We ended the investigation, your shipment is missing."










How professional of them.


We are still waiting to hear their "decision" about whether they would try to make it up to him, by "maybe" paying him up to 50%, and nothing more. How responsible are you guys at DHL"










check Ahmad`s so you can take a look on  the shipment`s track page . really i am checked from all those shipping companies

With Sukar , my life is Sukar ;)

This post is a confession , Today, I bought a new pair of shoes, I promised myself that i am going to start saving or at least ,stop shopping for a while :(
i am a shopaholic , and i can`t stop myself from shopping . I couldn`t resist that amazing United Nude sandals .


Eamz Ankle Sandal (White)



i started shopping online when i was just graduated from collage (2003 ) yes yes i am old :P back then ,  i fell in love with united nude heels , i got one gold sandal that everyone was asking me about it . The do  have amazing designs and fashion sense , you can check the web site here : unitednude and some of the designs :

                                                   
While i was checking my e-mails , i opened that one from Sukar.com , "The first privet shopping club in the middle east " ,i found them , United nude heels , usually it was hard to find them online , asos.com sold some , but with sukar.com , i found an amazing deal ,  the original price was : 76 K.D , i got for only 26 KD including the shipment fees directly to my door  , so without thinking i grabbed my MasterCard , and here i am waiting for shipment to arrive.

this is my first time shopping with them , after few hours from submitting my order , i received a phone call from them conforming my order :) and informing me the estimated time to receive my shipment .

As a first impression , i am satisfied ;)


To you , my dear JJ i know i promised you that i would stop random shopping , i know i broke my promise i know , please forgive me , but it was a great deal , and who could resiset such a great Deal :) walah walah akher marra .

What to wear for a resort vacation if you are Mt7ajba :)

As i mentioned earlier that i received a request about what to wear in your resort`s vacation if you are Mt7jaba ? also if you are non-mo7ajba but conservative girl .

to be honest , i am so scared about this post , i feel it is a big responsibility and i have to give my lovely 2 readers the best post ever .
Resorts vacations needs particular wardrobe preparations , and if you are Mt7jaba , it will be harder to choose what to where in a proper way that goes excellently with the hijab and to be chic at the same time
i prefer to stay in villa with privet pool , or to take trips to privet beaches , i believe most resorts offer these kind of specialized couples getaways , so i can wear whatever i desire from swimsuits and lovely dresses , shorts .....etc .

but i need some other clothes for the restaurants , and cafes . Here are some of the picks that i like :

1. Jumpsuite :

yes jumpsuites are perfect , make sure you choose a comfortable fabric , color and match them with accessories and slippers .


sample Set :






make sure the cardigans materials tkoon khafeefa , mo mn elnoo3 elthgeel .
2. Pants




i love this style , these pants ykoonoon waayed khfaaf , just wear a sleeveless shirt o fooga cardigan of course . waayed ra7 terta7en lah as a mt7jbaaa . don`t forget the accessories .

3.Dresses



Sachin Babi For Ankasa floral print dress, $199
La Perla beach top, $570
Diane von Furstenberg kaftan top, $421
STEFFEN SCHRAUT black legging, 79 EUR
Body glove, $55
TopShop legging, $25
TopShop legging, $25





i don`t like to wear dresses , because i am short , but if your tall , a long dress will be perfect , my dresses are mid legged , so i wear them with leggings , tra i don`t like to wear legging with short dresses here in Kuwait , i never do that , but in Maldives no one really noticed or even stared at me that was the reason why i was so comfortable wearing whatever i wanted .



Now for  the swimsuits , i wear the Islamic swimsuit suite only if i am going to ride a jetski , or other water sports, but if your accommodation doesn`t include a privet pool , you will need to wear on the beach too .


To be honest , i don`t like how it is stuck around the head !! really looks funny, thanks to one of my friend who helped me to improve that Islamic swimsuit ;)


just wear a silk scarf around your head !! you know that style we call are calling (7jab bo rab6a ) i don`t wear it in kuwait , but it really looks amazing when you travel . My husband shway kan mo 7ab hal7jab bas waayed kan 3ajbne o style o 7loo . i don`t know if your husbend is ok with that bas walah if it was for me , i will wear it kil ma akoon msafraa .


i got a swimsuit suite from primomoda but as i aid i added scarves and accessories :






you know those scarves from Folar we used to wear before the cottons Hejabs ? these are perfect to wear them with the islamic sweim suite .



Trust me you will look fabulous , and no one will stare at your hejab and no one will give you a scanning look !! trust me enshalah u are going to place mafeeh Arabs or khaleejeen .


enshalah i have been helpful , walah adree mga9raa but really i wish you will like some of the choices .


and make sure to get accessories waayed , bangels and bracelets , not your expensive jwelaries ! just pass by American eagle , topshop and river island , lucky you it is summer so will find a great stuff . i wish i could publish my photos :P


this is the only picture i can post for me wearing the wide legged pants there :

من دخلنا و انا جني ياهل بس منبهره
كل شي عجيب مشالله ، الديكور و الجو العام والموسيقى اتينن
المكان يديد و مشالله كل شي كامل ، الخدمة ممكن يكونون شوي بطيئين و متوترين بس كانوا على طول من اييبون الطلب يعتذرون و يقولون سامحونا على اي تقصير ، و طبعا هالشي لأن المكان يديد

هذي بعض الصور ، تصويري مو شي لأن كاميرتي مو معاي ف صورت بالبلاكبيري


و طقينا الباب

Good luck and wish you all the best

لوبوتان النصر لك :) سان لوران ، ارحل

YSL fires back at Christian Louboutin regarding the sue by him earlier this year accusing them for selling a pair of red-soled shoes , YSL says " Louboutin didn’t invent red soles and therefore can’t prevent anyone else from making shoes that feature them."



“Red outsoles are a commonly used ornamental design feature in footwear, dating as far back as the red shoes worn by King Louis XIV in the 1600s and the ruby red shoes that carried Dorothy home in ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ ” YSL says in court papers.from http://www.styleite.com/



aham shay Dorothy !!!


i am loyal to Louboutin , i will never wear Red Soled Shoes if they are not designed by him :)

سير يا لوبوتان و نحن من ورائك ، النصر لك

سان لوران

ارحل

What I like the most, are the comments I am receiving from all of you , thank you so much . I appreciate your efforts commenting on my posts :) also, I would like to thank my anonymous silent readers , I noticed that there have been amazing people who are reading my blog for a long time but they determine to stay anonymous, thanks a lot , I know that you are there , with me :*

 I received a wonderful comment from an anonymous reader regarding my pervious furious post :) thank you for such a splendid comment and comforting words. She asked me for an advice “ I know u travel a lot to the islands and some fun places where it can be really hot and humid...and I know you wear a hijab with style... sooo...I need yr help trying to figure out what to wear on my next vacation”


 I don`t know how to express that , but considering me Mt7ajba with style making me really happy and proud more by my Hejab . I can`t thank you enough cuzI received your comment on the right time , i had  an argument with a family member regarding the Hjab and about some strange  ideas that, woman wearing veils are not supposed to travel to certain places !! i got mad because i have to be proud of my hijab , and it will not stop me from traveling anywhere or doing anything  , my hijab is not an obstacle , yes i may complain sometimes , and i may hate it too but I love Allah more than anything ,  that is why I am wearing it .

 I want to be clear , I am not judging Non-Hijab girls , what I want to explain to everyone that although i look 100 times more beautiful without it and when I watch  girls walking around in the summer wearing attractive short dresses I do feel jealous , that will never stop me from defending my Hijab from those attackers .
I am not perfect , and i know i am not wearing the 100% correct  Islamic clothes , but i don`t like people who keep judging us and yshakkon b fartheyat el hijab .

 Anyway , lets leave the anger away , my lovely reader asked me to help her choose the proper resorts styles for Hijabs , so stay tuned for my post about what to wear in a resort if you are Mo7jaba .

i would be more than happy if you give me your suggestions :) so i can make post with various style and taste .

waiting ;)

My blog readers






Regarding my previous post , those who know my blog from the beginning are familiar with me posting whatever came to my mind , which is the same of what I am doing now in twitter .


My blog is my daily life , so it's fine with me to post about a misunderstanding between me and jj , a fight or any funny situation .


The difference , is that I am not anonymous anymore , I received some SMS s and massages asking if I am ok . Or if there is nothing wrong , I know you care about me , a friend asked me to delete it , I want to tell her I am sorry dear , I will not delete it . Because that is what I am using my blog for in the first place .


The readers used to comment on my personal posts , more than my general posts .

Ooh I miss those days .

Any way , it was a small argument that happens between couples , and that is normal , if I only post to show u that my life is perfect , I will not be honest with you or with myself and my writings will be fake .


I am presenting the real image of my daily life without a photoshop . ;)


The real me .




To you : we belong to each other :*

The Gucci event :)

Today was the Event of Gucci Kuwait city , to be honest I was not going to make it regarding some issues , but finally I did it :)
I went there 15 minutes early , the entrance was closed , I waited outside with some of the people who were invited and we were Waiting for the opening .
At 6:30 sharp , the door was opened , our names were checked , although I don't know why they couldn't find my name in the list !! Which was somewhat weird .
Thanks God i had my invitation with me , any way , the staffs were so friendly they welcomed me and i took a look around observing those amazing artisans functioning their techniques, forming astonishing pieces .




I love brands such as Gucci , and now  I appreciate the hard work those craftsmen do during the production of every item in the Gucci collection .



I wonder what do they feel with all the replicas around the world :/



So , if you own any leather Gucci bag , wallet , cards holder , or ipad cases, all you have to do is to head to Gucci store at 360 Mall to be personalized


There are also hand bags that are still in the process , you can purchase one of them and they will make the in front of you with writing your  name initials , moreover the handbags are limited edition for Kuwait city :)



I loved it , the event was well planned , the staffs were super friendly and helpful .

Unfortunately I didn't meet The store manager , Ms. Sawsan i dont know why I felt shy to ask about her :p

Any way don't miss that opportunity and harry up to 360
