Confidence, Insecurity & Perfection

I am awfully exhausted after a French class that I clearly failed to make a good first impression in but I just had to get these thoughts out: On the way back home today, I was thinking about a conversation I had had earlier with a friend of mine about people not being confident enough … Continue reading Confidence, Insecurity & Perfection

Why I Shop Less

There's only two things you can do for fun in Doha: Go to a mall or go to a bar. On account of being a "good" girl, I chose the former. Also, anyone who drinks before 12:00 pm has a problem. Except, of course, for Brunch. After my surprisingly pleasant experience with my embassy, I … Continue reading Why I Shop Less

And I thought ”Why do I even blog?”

I was going through some old posts and I kept thinking about the time when I used to blog quite often. Somewhere along the way I stopped blogging. And now I want to get back into it. But every time I get inspired to write something, I am immediately brought down by the thought that … Continue reading And I thought ”Why do I even blog?”

How I feel about LGBT-themed movies

I recently saw ''Boy erased'' and ''Colette''. NOTE: THIS IS NOT A REVIEW OF EITHER MOVIE BUT MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS. I saw ''Boy erased'' knowing the main subject of the movie. But with ''Colette'', I was only watching because of Kiera Knightly. I was not aware of the real story of ''Colette'' or ''Claudine''. As … Continue reading How I feel about LGBT-themed movies

This is not a ”New year, New me” kind of post

And isn't it too early for that kind of thing, anyway? Anyway. ANYWAY. Since the last few months, I have been making a lot of changes to my lifestyle and diet. Part of this I owe to my very kind Irish friend who introduced me to the plant based diet. Part of this I owe … Continue reading This is not a ”New year, New me” kind of post

I feel ya, my vegan brother

I made the huge mistake of ordering a veggie burrito from Mexican grill. OH MY GOD. It was like they didn't even bother with the recipe. It made me question why I didn't just order the chicken options instead. SO THIS IS WHAT THEY MEAN WHEN PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING VEGAN FRET ABOUT WHAT TO … Continue reading I feel ya, my vegan brother

It’s only the end of the world!

Or Juste la fin du monde, in French. I find the title alone remarkable. The movie starts with Louie (Gaspard Ulliel), a playwright, paying a visit to his family after years of absence. He seems to have cut them off from his life and is only returning back to inform them of his terminal illness. … Continue reading It’s only the end of the world!

Skincare: What no one talks about

A recent ''Makeup'' session at work had me rolling my eyes. It really, really bothered me. So much so that I am here to write about it. I am not anti-make up, although I barely put much on. My problem wasn't with the emphasis around the idea of using makeup to enhance one's beauty. My … Continue reading Skincare: What no one talks about

Is there a relationship between self-esteem and the likes on my posts?

After my last post 'Botox or boob job', I noticed that there were more likes on this post than on the one before. (Can you imagine? The last one was about sex and no one read it)I always thought that likes on any of my post don't really matter. Or do they? A day later, … Continue reading Is there a relationship between self-esteem and the likes on my posts?

Botox or boob job?

I was having a casual conversation with a long time friend of mine, when she mentioned she is contemplating getting a filler. Naturally, an eyebrow was raised. I tried to raise one. I don't know if I succeeded. She's a model. So I wonder why someone as good looking as her would want to alter … Continue reading Botox or boob job?

Why being a Liverpool fan is like being on a rollercoaster

You have players that sign five year deals only to put in transfer requests later. 2. We bought Momo Salah and Solanke to strengthen our team only to loose Lallana for a couple of months. 3. We win games...then we end them in a draw. The funny game against Watford And it hurt me like … Continue reading Why being a Liverpool fan is like being on a rollercoaster

When procrastinators do things for you

Cherish them. It means you mean a lot to them which is why they have bothered to move their lazy asses. JUST FOR YOU. On the other hand, never let procrastinators arrange a birthday party for you. Never. Unfortunately, my friend and I both fall in the same category and yet we have taken this … Continue reading When procrastinators do things for you
