L’Occitane Fleur d’Or & Acacia

20131128_141709Today I am introducing to you one of my very favorite skincare line of products L’Occitane. The latest in their line of products is the fragrance – Fleur d’Or & Acacia; An out of the world olfactory experience, a perfume that is capable of creating more than just a memory.

loccitane-fleur-dor-acacia
The perfume in the collection of Fleur d’Or  begins with, and maintains, an intense acacia-mimosa accord; and at first, this accord smells genuine. The lemon note in Fleur d’Or & Acacia’s opening serves as a momentary “booster” for the florals. After Fleur d’Or & Acacia’s authentic-smelling acacia-mimosa notes vanish, and that happens quickly, they are replaced by acacia-mimosa ‘chemicals’ that soar into space, and up through my nasal passages. Fleur d’Or & Acacia’s floral notes change from “pure” to modified; the effect is similar to finding a beautiful acorn or piece of driftwood and spray painting it gold with inexpensive enamel.

As Fleur d’Or & Acacia dries down, clean wood-musk comes forward, not quite reaching “laundry room” aromas but too clean for my taste. Overall, I would describe Fleur d’Or & Acacia as a flower syrup (sweetened with sugar/sterilized honey); it’s powerful, and, in the end, cloying. Fleur d’Or & Acacia is a hyper-feminine perfume; it has excellent sillage and unbelievable endurance. I would definitely recommend it to you all. It’s amazing for this festive season and holidays.

    Every coastal area around the world is slowly becoming the
    hotspots for tourist destinations, not only for the scenic beauty but also they offer varied range of water adventures.
    A few hints include avoiding shops that use swimming pools to teach you
    in. Working as a Diving Instructor once you start
    doing it is not just a job, it becomes a way of life, a fantastic rewarding experience
    and a great way to teach people one of the things you love most in life: Diving.

Do you love patterns too?
This pic is exactly as I shot off the wall at the newly opened @timerakohotel at Al Wakrah.
So fascinated to see new places coming up and the rapid changes this country has been going through and growing through

A T T I T U D EBe humble enough to admit you are not perfect but determined enough to strive to be.
More often than not you can find people who deem themselves perfect or priveleged and make you feel like your hardwork and your skills are nothing( I have been made to feel like this several times). Dont let that get to you. Your talent, knowledge and skill that you have with you are more than money can ever buy. The people you need to admire and can most definitely learn a lot from are the humble and patient ones. . .

One of the most scenic spots we went to in Macedonia and one I would love to go back again to.
The water was so chilly, the colors around so beautiful. What I love about nature is that it does not judge. It shows the same beauty to everyone around. Everyone gets the same service regardless of who they are.
Come rain or wind, it passes through everywhere with no exception. Isn't nature such a wonderful teacher?
Only if we took lessons from it! Whats the favorite lesson you have learnt from nature?

No matter how narrow minded we think a person can be, they can still see beauty if they really want to look for it. Beauty and Goodness is there in everyone just like faults. Why is it so easy to point out faults and not the good?
Can you go to sleep with a clean conscience having pointed out someone's fault? Or is the happiness through saying the right words that makes your day happy?
If so, before you write from behind the screen, before anger, jealousy or negative feelings take over your words, try and pause and choose the good words 💟 .

I sat down with the ENT specialist Dr. Agish Mathew at Aster Hospital and one of the things I learnt was more on the problem of snoring in sleep. More than 75% of people who snore have obstructive sleep apnea (when breathing is disrupted during sleep for short periods), which increases the risk of developing heart disease.😲😲
At Aster Hospital they can provide the service of observing you and analysing your sleep patterns . More often than not a person who snores struggles to get enough oxygen into the brain while asleep and the person wakes up tired because the body works so hard while asleep😌 to get enough oxygen into the brain.
For this reason, if anyone around you has a snoring problem, dont take it lightly.
The Aster Hospital in Qatar offers the service of studying sleeping disorders overnight and making sure to diagnose the cause of it and how to rectify it.
Did you know about this before?
Share it with everyone you know!

It almost felt like I wanted to take a fluffy piece of cloud and keep it for myself
