22 Awesome Things About Being A Woman

SO TRUUE!

Thought Catalog

1. That feeling right after you shave your legs for the first time in a while and you can’t stop running your hands up and down your silky marble columns and you imagine that this is what a mermaid must feel like.

2. The sleepovers you used to have with all your girlfriends where you would eat junk food, read girly magazines, and watch scary movies. (As well as the realization that you can now have the same exact sleepovers, except this time with alcohol!)

3. When you magically find a foundation or tinted moisturizer that’s in your shade. You hold it up to the sky as the clouds part and Jesus himself floats down on a ray of sunshine to be like, “It’s your time, girl. Cover those blemishes with ease and grace.” And then he butterfly kisses you and floats back up.

4. When said moisturizer doesn’t cost…

How We Can All Learn from the Creativity of a Child

Photofocus (old site)

She’s my 7-year-old and her world is a fascinating place.  Her daily needs are simple; food, sleep and adventure.  Her notebook is full of friendly monster doodles and has a clockwork morning report of her nightly dreams.  In one particular instance, she woke to tell me that she dreamt that she could fly.  And she had a simple request.  She wanted to do a photoshoot of her dream.

Now, you can guess what I did next.  I looked down on my abilities to fulfill her photoshoot request. I told her that I didn’t know how to do that,  that I hadn’t taken photos for a while, that I wasn’t good enough or that it would be too hard.  I thought about my equipment and how my camera was old and I didn’t have the right lens. Excuse after excuse after excuse. She was sad and utterly confused.  But she did…

Good morning!!

Welcome to another edition of food fabulous design! This topic specifically has been one that I’ve been dying to share with you all for a while now, since its one that never fails to impress me! Pink Camel Pastry Boutique, located in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is a success story for many; and for a person who enjoys looking at fabulous design, just as much as loves eating, I think its safe to say that its the perfect combo!

Pink Camel is a pastry boutique that specializes in catering to the Arab society, specifically enhancing it however with a local and authentic twist. The design, and over all look might come off vintage with a twist of kitsch, succeeding in giving the store a complete look and feel of fresh, fun, vibrant and attractive.

Its famous for its macaroons covering a wide range of variety. Whether your a chocolate addict, nutella fan, or simply want to indulge in a late night halawa snack, Pink Camel gives you just that, perfectly assembled into a single macaroon. During Ramadan, Pink Camel catered to the local audience, and catered to a selection of traditional Arabic sweets, such as “Knefe”. My facial expression whilst indulging on Pink Camel’s famous S’more Macaroon was simply picturesque.

Macaroons are just partial to the complete array of cheesecakes, jams, chocolate chip cookies and cotton candy marshmellows the store has to offer. The place leaves you at awe, and you can’t possibly go in and not leave with more.

This boutique is more of a food concept, that is only strengthened by its visual creativity. They empower each other giving the customer a visual and physical experience, rather than just merely an experience that is solely dependent on the distinct taste of your preferred dessert. The cheesecakes, and jams are delightfully packaged into little jars, making them both functional and desirable at the same time. After consuming deserts, they  become a perfect accessory for your kitchen. Not to mention the incredible attention they would receive if you would have them catered to a personal, or home event.

The store also has a wide range of creatively designed pillows and tote bags, that might yield absolutely nothing to the food industry, but everything to an item which is funky and fresh, and goes perfectly with your bedroom sheets. These designed pillows create the over all identity of the shop, and the ever changing characters and colors never fall far from the reminiscent concept of that which is Pink Camel.

From boxes, to plastic bags. From business cards, to jars. From pillow cases to tote bags; this place is definitely a must to check out when visiting Jeddah! Im sure you won’t leave the store empty handed, and wanting more.
