Everything about this song is amazing.

No matter how old you are, it’s always exciting to come home to see a big, fat package sitting on your couch. It’s even more exciting when the package is beautifully customized for you, complete with a painted portrait and references to the people you love.
This is what I came home to last night:
The box is beautiful, and is styled with pictures from my Instagram account. When I opened it, it had a very personalized, cute message. Nescafe knows that I love the Internet! And I love people/brands that use the Internet correctly.
This campaign by Nestle Dolce Gusto Jordan is SO BRILLIANT in its details that I will go ahead. Check out the geniusness:
Beneath the cute note was my very own painted portrait, painted with coffee by Jordanian artist Randa Haddadin:
And then, several boxes of coffee, in different flavours and suggestions on who to share them with:
The detail here is mindblowing.
WOW. See what I mean by genius?
Beneath the coffee is the biggest surprise: a Mini Me bright red Dolce Gusto machine :)
It’s so cute. It looks like a penguin! And it’s not just an espresso machine, it’s all out, with milk and cream pods and everything.
Time to enjoy my coffee :)
Thanks Nescafe, not only for the nice surprise, but for a lesson in great social media marketing as well.
The past few weeks, I’ve had unexplainable feelings of loss towards Harry Potter.
I miss Harry. I miss waiting for the books to come out. I miss fighting over who will it first. I miss driving to Bahrain to watch the movies. I guess miss being a little girl :)
Thank goodness you can’t spot old green-screen tech in a book.
My life sometimes feels as absurd as this PSA.
A few weeks ago I found this amazing Disney princess pasta. HOW COOL IS IT?
There’s Cinderella, Belle, Aurora, and Snow White. There’s also Cinderella’s carriage and castle.
Unfortunately, the poor princesses die quickly, and as soon as you add any sauce.
February was for winter, February was for spring.
Jordan is quite stunning these days. Don’t spend your weekend cooped up — go out on a road trip. My favorite place in February was Qasr il Abed in Eraq il Ameer, and you can buy fresh beets from the kids there as well.
Ancient stones scattered all over the grass in Iraq Al-Amir. The mansion, believed to have been built by Hyrcanus of Jerusalem, governor of Ammon, dates from approximately 200BC. The burial caves across from the ruins date back to the copper age. THAT’S REALLY OLD.
