DCIM100GOPROFrom our recent post Abercrombie&Fitch Soon At The Avenues & Mall360. A&F The Avenues Branch officially opened month ago. Days ago I visited the branch and exploring the products, store and brand identity.

KuwaitA&FFrom my visit to A&F U.S and London stores their are different touches missing in Kuwait store. Such as the perfumes, products, staff uniform, bag and brand identity look. Most of the items are new, but not all sizes are available. I still prefer to shop from A&F London store.

KingAbdullahKing Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz passed way early this morning, raising a new round of speculation about how the transition of power in the Gulf’s largest country will affect the region.

Therefore, State of Kuwait has declared three days of mourning following the passing of Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz AlSaud. Both the public and private sectors will be off from Friday till Sunday and will start back on Monday 26th January 2014.

I was so interested to watch the movie and rest of the story. The storyline was also good, as well the same characters returned. I enjoyed the movie, but I think they need to do much better in the story to give to the audience the actual idea. I strongly encourage families to go and see this movie during the Holidays.

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.

TheHobbitThe Hobbit 3 is now showing at Grand Cinemas and Cinescape Screens. Days ago, I planned to watch third series of The Hobbit movie.  Grand Cinemas was the nearest place to me. So I booked online and invited my family. From my point of view, the movie is fabulous. If you watched the first and second series of The Hobbit you would love The Hobbit 3 series the most.

InstagramSpamSince Instagram announced their will clean up all spam/fake accounts. This message was placed before a while. I did not believe that Instagram can not control the spam accounts, but today I discovered many celebrities in Kuwait and worldwide lost hundreds and thousands of followers in minutes.

instagramfollowerskuwaitKuwaitiful posted List of Celebrities That Lost Thousands of Followers on Instagram. This time Instagram done a great work on managing the followers.What’s funny, accounts had lost over 10,000 followers in onetime. Actually, we compare number of followers and clearly estimate who bought followers.

VerifiedInstagramMoreover, Instagram will move soon on verifying all accounts. This step will be announced soon by Instagram community to make sure their is no any spams/fake accounts in future. Instagram done a great job and I think it is a great strategy applied by end of the year.
