Mermaid Lip Balm by RAW INC.

I couldn’t find anything about this brand to link it but I’m seriously in love with this lip balm. Like the previous one that was sent out in March, it leaves the lips soft and doesn’t give that shiny end, also it’s made out of raw ingredients so I was sold.

MerLady Squad Necklace by DINGLEHOPPER DECOR

This beautiful bar necklace with “MerLady Squad” engraved is so pretty. I really like this type of jewelry, it’s simple but looks quite elegant.

Mermaid Soap Gems by TailoredSoap

The soap gems came in three types Amethyst, Emerald and Opal, and they look as beautiful as the pictures. I honestly just want to stare at them and not use them from how gorgeous they are.

Bangle Set by MerLady Box

I’m obsessed with bangles and bracelets, I’m so in love with this set. It got cute starfish and octopus charms on some of the bangles, it definitely fits the bohemian theme of the box.

Mermaid Makeup Bag by MerLady Box

The last item is also by MerLady box shop and it’s a gorgeous bag with words written “Mermaids are my spirit animal” I can’t get enough of makeup bags from these subscription boxes, I gave it to my sister though because she was in love with it.

Overall, I love how MerLady is including their own products in the recent boxes, I’ve been enjoying them. I love the items they send out and would definitely continue my subscription with them.

Games to Revisit in May

I totally forgot to do an anniversary post since I’ve been blogging for a year, I also know that I’m quite late in posting this but hey at least I’m still posting. For May I didn’t really have time to try games since I was quite busy also I finally played Bloodborne, I enjoyed it more than Dark Souls honestly. Anyway I thought of choosing one game for this month and it’s one of my favorite games.

The_beginners_guide_cover_art

The game is narrated by Wreden and takes the user through a number of incomplete and abstract game creations made by a developer named Coda. Wreden challenges the player to try to come to understand the type of person Coda is from exploring these spaces in a first-person perspective. Within the narrative, the player discovers that Wreden had tried to force meaning onto Coda’s games, causing them to end their relationship. Wreden has stated the game is open to interpretation: some have seen the game as general commentary on the nature of the relationship between game developers and players, while others have taken it as an allegory to Wreden’s own personal struggles with success resulting from The Stanley Parable.

I went through many emotions while playing this game because it’s unique and interesting. The narrative of this game drives you to think and find a deeper meaning through the games developed by this unknown developer Coda and I find that fascinating because we usually rely on expressions and body language to understand a person.

I highly recommend trying it out, hope you enjoyed this short post. I’m really sorry for the lack of posts lately, trying to get back at it.

Have a great day.

MerLady Box – Mermaid Glamour

logo

Hey everyone I’m back with an unboxing post of my favorite subscription box MerLady Box, this post was intended to be published sooner but I recently went to UAE and bought a new phone, so it took me a while to find the pictures I took of the items in this box. Anyway the theme of April was “Mermaid Glamour”

GreenTreeJewelry – Little Mermaids Earrings

So these earrings are wooden and came in Wine color, they are really adorable and quite light-weighted so they don’t pull your ears.

MerLady – Ombre Mermaid Brush

The next item is a set created by MerLady themselves, a cute mermaid brush. The item looks it’s high quality as it didn’t really shed at all and it’s sturdy. LOVE IT.

MerLady – Mermaid Gold

The next item is also from the same set of the brush, it’s a gel based body glitter. It’s made up from Aloe Vera and Vitamin E so it’s also great for the skin, the gel is quite light in consistency so it won’t smear your skin in a gross way. It’s really pretty and it’s suitable for both hair and skin.

WEEZZZ – Seashell Choker Necklace

Let me just say I’m obsessed with chokers so I was so excited to see this necklace. It’s really beautiful, I love the shell charm.

StabbyGabby – Mermaid Lipstick Sticker

I’m not a sticker fan but this one is so adorable and pretty.

Twinkle Apothecary – Merlady Locks Dry Shampoo

The final item is a dry shampoo but not the usual one I’m used to, it’s a powder actually. Not sure how to use it and I also keep mentioning that I’m not a fan of dry shampoos in general so I’ll give it to one of my sisters probably.

Overall, I LOVE THIS SUBSCRIPTION BOX … that’s it. Thank you for reading and hope you’re having a great day.

LightInTheBox Haul

It’s been awhile since I posted a haul entry, as you know I’m quite a shopaholic when it comes to online shopping. LightInTheBox is a website for some reason I can’t stop buying from, you would know from the previous posts that I did before.

I recently started watching Assassination Classroom and Danganronpa so I wanted to get something related to these anime so I got these two shirts:

 xtuhvt1463727701183Assassination Classroom Shirt

Price: $15.99

I LOVE Korosensei, I want him to be my teacher. I was excited to get this shirt for that but I was disappointed that it’s not exactly like the picture on the website. The sleeves weren’t black, it was a plain white but the middle graphic is exactly like the picture. It’s a normal shirt nothing special about it, I like it anyway.

.

zmnncc1402048941276Danganronpa Monokuma Shirt

Price: $19.99

I’ve always wanted to buy a Monokuma Plushie but I wouldn’t mind a shirt so I got this shirt. Like the previous shirt, it’s not like the picture on the website. The logo of Hope’s Peak Highschool on the sleeve isn’t there and also the logos on the back aren’t there which is disappointing because I was really looking forward for this shirt.


Overall, I was really disappointed with the quality of the shirts to be honest. I also bought another two shirts and yoga clothing set which turned out looking great so it’s not all bad haul but I thought of posting these two since they both go together under anime category while the other clothing items are more for the gym.

Hope you enjoyed this post and have a nice day.

I’m Mae from Night In the Woods

I wrote an article recently on Creators.co about this topic and I thought about writing it in a more personal context and speak about myself. I relate to quite a number of video game characters but right now, it’s definitely Mae from Night In The Woods.

banner

College dropout Mae Borowski returns home to the crumbling former mining town of Possum Springs seeking to resume her aimless former life and reconnect with the friends she left behind. But things aren’t the same. Home seems different now and her friends have grown and changed. Leaves are falling and the wind is growing colder. Strange things are happening as the light fades.

And there’s something in the woods.

I played this game couple of weeks ago and I’ve been recommending it to everyone I know – well everyone I know who plays games. It’s not your typical level progress type of game which makes it unique in my opinion. It’s how you socialize with the characters around the town, it’s quite colorful and I love how every character has their own personality which makes you imagine how they sound as you play.

Mae-GifNow let’s talk about the main protagonist Margaret Borowski, better known as Mae.

“No like when your body is like ‘Uh whoa I almost died,’ and you get all hyper because you’re filled with dolphins.”

I’ve mentioned in a post before that I’m a college dropout and apparently Mae is as well, and then I started noticing her words and sarcastic behavior … SHE WAS ME. I relate to her so much that I can see myself walking in her cute boots and socializing with her friends and family.

“I’ll unlock you ass”

meaI honestly love the layers of her personality, it shows how deep she is and also I love how realistic the conversations are. Honestly the conversations what appealed to me the most because I know I would have such conversations like these with my friends.

“Just because that online test said that your best chance at being happy is a situation where everyone already likes you, but they mostly leave you alone except when they’re delivering food to you . . . that doesn’t mean you can hide in your room and wait for that to happen. That’s how Hermits are made, Mae, and they die alone in the middle of Winter, waiting for pizza from friends they don’t want to see.”

Now about her mental health, the way she depresses herself when she looks in the mirror is something I think we all do deep inside. We all have some insecurities that makes us overthink and down ourselves because of it. Take me for example, I’m forever insecure about my body shape and also the ability to socialize with people, I try to improve myself but that stupid inner voice keeps depressing me just like Mae in some scenes.

I highly recommend checking this game, it’s really atmospheric and will definitely amaze you of how relatable the characters are.

Hope you enjoyed this post and have a nice day.

16 Months Later – Second Baby ?

My everything ♥️♥️ #1yearold #baby #cute

A post shared by Rei (@rei_al3amri) on

Today marks 16 months since I gave birth to the love of my life (Sorry husband). I thought of posting this as an update for my recent fluctuated feelings and emotions, not sure if it’s related to my postpartum depression even though I feel fine.

I’ve been getting emotional over small details that I didn’t really think would matter, like during bedtime. I would let my son watch animated nursery rhymes till he gets sleepy then he would tell me “nam” means sleep in Arabic and then points at the milk bottle and say “nana”, he counts with me how many scoops of milk and enjoys it then walks till his crib waiting for me to hand him the bottle. It really made me emotional because I’m watching him grow and clearly he understands, it feels overwhelming and quite emotional I know I keep repeating it I just can’t explain it.

One of the things I enjoy in being a mother is watching him be happy and have that constant smile on his face whenever I play with him or watch him explore around. It’s quite surreal for me being someone who’ve always hated dealing with babies and children in general.

So I’ve been thinking about having a second child but part of me isn’t over the first pregnancy with the whole package of pains and aches. My husband thinks we should wait for awhile which I agree but I’ve been getting dreams of having babies lately it’s weird. I know it’s quite a random post but I wanted to just throw out my thoughts somewhere and obviously I would go for my blog, hope I didn’t bore you with this post.

Have a great day
