Weekend Chit Chat

Hi my lovelies! Yet another weekend, yet another Friday. I said bye to my hubby last night who traveled  back to Pakistan. The days become awfully long here in UAE with kids and chores and its nice to have him here so we can do stuff together with the kids. Taking them out becomes much easier and more fun when they have their Dad with them. Anyway since he was leaving, there was something that I wanted to do for him. His birthday falls on the 29th of July and knowing he wouldn’t be here with us I tried to throw him a little surprise also to make the kids know and feel that they were part of his b-day this year. So baked a layered chocolate cake, put up fairy lights (i’m obsessed with these things) got the candles ready, bought his b’day present in under 15 minutes (boy! I got lucky!) and packed everything without him knowing and you’ll never guess where. Haha! Packed his presents in the washroom, imagine that!

Thank God he loved everything. Also that reminds me that there are some great deals at Springfield so you might wanna check those out. I loved their shirts, hats and caps. Super nice!

This time of the year in UAE means you will be spending a good amount of time at the malls, or maybe at the beaches during the evenings. Plan your evenings. Make some sandwiches at home, get a nice bottle of fresh lemonade and get your flip flops. Make the most of it.

The malls have some great deals with Dubai Summer Surprises in full swing. Best time to grab what you’ve been wanting to get for so long.

This week also brought the news of Chester Bennington leaving the world on a very sad note. May his soul rest in peace. As much as i’d hoped this year to be better than the last..this year has been a year of heartbreak so far. I’m not really in high spirits this weekend so bear with me.

So will be posting some DIY skincare this week along with a little about hair extensions.

Stay Tuned!

LOVE
xoxo

 

Chester Bennington – Linkin Park

Woke up to terrible news this morning..I may not be related to Chester Bennignton but news like this does leave you sad and makes you ponder over the realities of life.

We listen to music, we watch celebrities perform, we pass judgements and leave comments never knowing how they must affect them..how we don’t see their struggles but only care about the music they bring us… we have no idea about what goes on in their lives and their minds..we don’t care about how much of an effort must go into that one song they want at the top of the billboard so that they can feed their families, pay their children’s college fee or foot the hospital bills for someone they love… we are a selfish lot..we don’t care about others.. we particularly ignore people who need love and support, who are fighting their own battles within..they are suffering from an illness invisible to the human eye… we ignore what we can’t see at times…we do more damage then we take responsibility for…

This year has seen too many tragedies..this year has been a year of heartbreak so far…
Chester Bennington has been a huge part of my teen years like many of you out there..I always had Linkin Park on my playlist with a few being favorites like

There are many others as well of course. Linkin Park will always be a great band. Chester will always be remembered. Its a known fact that he struggled with drugs and alcohol for years which is terrible, and its worse that he was abused as a child. How as a society we ignore the fact that people need help and tremendous support to overcome any kind of abuse. Mental and emotional abuse is as bad as physical abuse. Its about time these issues are properly addressed. My heart goes out to his 2 wives Samantha Olit ,Talinda Ann Bentley   and children. Sigh!

May his soul rest in peace.
