Superstar Ragheb Alama began the first journey of his new fragrance Le Grand Amour in Kuwait today. A number of press and bloggers were invited to the Sheraton to attend the press release for this very alluring fragrance, which was then followed by a lunch with amazing food.

The women’s perfume named Le Grand Amour of big love, (El Hob El Kibeer, like his famous song), has a very rich aroma that is keen to make anyone who gets a wiff of it fall in love instantly! This fragrance was made for the everyday woman who wants to be attractive without trying to hard. The smell isn’t overpowering but it’s just enough to get attention! I absolutely adored it the second I tried it.

I loved Ragheb! He was so down to earth and funny that it showed why he’s been so successful throughout the years. I, of course, was fan girling. He does so much to give back to everyone who looks up to him, including building schools for the less fortunate and all his efforts with UNESCO. Everyone attending got a bottle of his new fragrance which I personally will cherish forever and ever.

With valentines in a couple of days, boys, go out and buy a bottle for your lover (or your mommy, I know I will!). I guarantee you she will be head over heels in love with this gift!

I came to know from our friend AlMubarkia that Hilton Hotel is opening soon at Olympia Mall in Salmiya. I’m fan of Hilton Hotels around the world. We definitely need more 4 and 5 stars hotels in Kuwait. We have previously created a list of the new 5 stars hotels opening in Kuwait, find it here [link]

DSC_4136What attracted me the most about is is that, I don’t have to to sit and have my sweets at the hotel, I can call and order in advance and it will be ready for me to pick up and leave. My favorite choices have to be the red velvet,Opera Cake and Black forest cake which has to be cracked open like an egg!

The prices are surprisingly reasonable for a place like The Regency Hotel.

For all the women who love our blog, my friend found a place that is specially made for women to hop about and swim or tan (or whatever it is that you girls do on your day for relaxation) in complete privacy and away from the preying eyes of some of the fellas.

There’s and area at Regency Hotel that is called “ladies lounge”, it is closed off from the view of other guests, it has pool,lounge area and access to the beach and of course all the servers are female. I kind of like this idea because it surely will make women feel a little more comfortable while enjoying themselves,especially in Kuwait. It’s needed.

This ladies lounge service can only be found at the Regency hotel, as other hotels do not provide this as  a full service.

So ladies, if you are planning a girly catch up with your friends or family;now you know where to go!
