Shehla Khan Customised Cakes

I was lucky enough to convince Shehla to do me a last minute birthday cake yesterday and was really pleased with her enthusiasm, professionalism and creative talent. Just had to share with you her darling cupcakes and customised cakes. Shehla's prices start at a very reasonable KD9 for a dozen of the cutest fondant topped cupcakes.

A Top Tip For Surviving Summer in Kuwait

Underwear to stop the underboob drips and the thighs chafing when wearing a dress. No, I have no thigh gap. This brand isn't the usual choice I go for but I was in Centrepoint so grabbed these without looking and I just noticed there are not so cottony. Not bad at only KD 1.900 each though.

I normally buy the cotton ones from the co-ops or City Centre which are 1/3 of the price of what you would pay in Marks & Spencer. The more cotton, the more absorbent. You can also find shorter length shorts in white, beige and black.

You will thank me. You're welcome.

Update: Tried and tested stood up pretty well, but then it's only in the 40s.

Utterly Thrilled With My New Barters

So I bartered this basket of freshly made Truly Scrumptious scones with clotted cream and jam for a beautiful basket of stunning handmade soaps made with natural ingredients from Oneness Living.

And another barter deal with Sadeer Farms for another 
basket Truly Scrumptious scones and a box of triple chocolate brownies.

And in return, I got these fresh farm products, herbs and pickles. A very successful day bartering I'd say. If you have a small business on Instagram and you are willing to barter then come and join us on Instagram Let's Barter KW.
