Dark Chocolate…Healthy?

31 Aug

Dark chocolate is heavenly..and just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, turns out, its actually good for you.

Because its derived from cocoa beans, which grow on trees, its filled with natural plant nutirents.  It has natural antioxidants (same stuff  that made green tea, red grapes and blueberries so famous), reduces blood pressure and hypertension, and improves cardiovascular health.  Plus, mood-elevating chemicals– so it makes you feel better!

I think doctors should start prescribing dark chocolate instead of medicine… Hmmm…Maybe someday..

Enjoy responsibly… too much consumption may lead to unwanted side effects, such a weight gain 🙂

New & Trending: Designer Diapers for Babies!

30 Aug

OH MY GOD!….These are just tooooo cute!

So according to the news, manufacturers (Huggies and Pampers) are making these designer diapers to boost sales.

After a four-year decline in births during the economic downturn, they are each seeking to gain market share.

“” “It’s all about moms getting compliments from other moms,” says advertising psychologist Renee Fraser. “Babies don’t compliment each other on their diapers. Moms do.” “”   I totally agree with that statement! LOL

They cost 20% more than regular diapers, but I’d still buy them 🙂



I wish they bring them to Kuwait….   sighhhh!

The BEST Dark Chocolate EVER!

30 Aug

Uhhhh…Pierre Marcolini! I love these chocolates!

So I was introduced to Peirre Marcolini chocolate a few years ago and instantly fell in LOVE! 

I love snacking on chocolate..specially dark chocolate…and since most of theirs are dark, this was a match made in Heaven.  They have many different flavor infusions, from the bitter to the sweet.  The dark ones have that wonderfully rich, bitter dark chocolate taste (you know what I’m talking about!).  I think one of the best Belgian chocolates I’ve ever had!

If you haven’t tried it yet, you’re definitely missing out! 

They have an outlet in Hilton Mangaf, and I heard they moved the Dar AlAwadi location to the Avenues (I haven’t been there yet, but will confirm when I go).
