It’s mama’s day again! The time of the year when we have to give back to that incredible woman who’s been handling our mess ups all our lives. Enough buying your precious mama home and kitchen equipment, she doesn’t need that! Instead, try to pamper her through getting her something nice and spending some real quality time with her, here’s a list of things that you can do together this year:
1. Take her out for a fancy dinner
Make your mama feel like a fancy duchess and take her out for some paperdelle with sea urchin or some pasta with lamb ragu! You don’t understand a word? Good, means it’s fancy AF
2. Take her out to the movies
Go see a a family comedy with your mama at the movies, it doesn’t cost much and it’s always a lot of fun! You can see a horror flick if you want…if your mama’s into that sorta thing. if you’re still unsure about which movie to see, check out our movie calendar, updated with all the latest films and their screening times.
3. Take her to a spa
No mother in the world could ever say no to a day at the spa! This one is guaranteed to get you at least 100+ mama points!
So, that every time she starts a fight with you, you’d remind her of that time you sent her on a trip to go see magical hands Mosheera
4. Buy her a nice anti-aging skin care set
Trust me, mothers love that sh*t! You have no idea! Especially, if you buy them a really fancy set of creams and lotions and all that yada yada, just don’t mention the anti-aging part. You both know it but you don’t have to talk about it. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
5. A day-use at a hotel
Wouldn’t it be nice to bond with your mama while sipping on piña coladas in a pool? Book a day-use at a nice hotel that isn’t extraordinarily luxurious and expensive and go enjoy the sun and the water alongside your beautiful mama!
Happy mother’s day, suckers!
To All the People Who Left, I Forgive you
To the people who promised never to leave, but did anyway, I forgive you. I can say so now, because I have finally reached the conclusion that it wasn’t my fault but merely your choice. And who am I to stand against this, yes, I might be the daughter, the best friend, the girlfriend, but I still have no say when it comes to this, when your choice is leaving, mine must be to let go.
I didn’t fully recover, I simply coped with your absence. I kept on coping, till I no longer think of you when I’m upset and in need for someone to talk to. I learned to shift my needs towards my own self, I soothe my own soul and I tell myself to not give up to the pain.
I miss hearing it from you though, I miss the security that girls often feel from their fathers, the care they get from their partners and the joy that a best friend gives, but I taught myself that I can live without feeling those emotions.
I would also like to thank you, because even though your absence should have toughened my heart, it actually made it softer. I now have a soft spot for those who suffer alone and in silence. I have learned from your own mistakes and now I know how to deal with a scarred heart.
Your absence surely left a void, one that can hardly be contained by the presence of anyone else. But I’m learning that when someone tries to fill your shoes, I should let them. It won’t be the same, but it is worth the try.
So to the father who left, I know you must be hurting too, but don’t. Because you eventually raised a strong kid.
To the best friend who left, no one can possibly replace you, but one who would never leave, is a worthier one.
And to the partner who left, it’s hard to walk this journey of life alone, but it surely ain’t impossible.
7 Egyptians Young Achievers Make it to Forbes 30 Under 30 List
The Middle East is witnessing a rise in young achievers who are making noticeable advancements in different fields such as science, sports, arts, and more. And Egyptians are no exception, with our regional youth giving us utter pride with their achievements that are recognized both regionally and globally.
Forbes list of 30 under 30 is shedding the light on those pushing boundaries to reach their dreams; by ranking some of those young achievers and capturing their essence.
The Middle East’s 30 under 30 were all under the age of 30 as of February 1, 2019 and some may not be current residents in their home countries, but their achievements surely are speaking for their Arab Heritage. From world champions to CEOs leading high-growth businesses, here are the 7 Egyptians who made it to the list and are honoring the legacy of Egypt.
In the Art&Style category, the two sisters Aya & Mounaz Abdel Raouf, founders of Okhtein, made it to the top of the list, for their globally known brand that offers exceptional pieces for statement bags.
Does this even need a caption? The name speaks of achievements and it just makes absolute sense for him to be featured.
In the sports category is the Champion Nour El Sherbini who also made it to this category, the young athlete has already been making us proud with her being the current world champion in women’s squash, who took the World Squash Championship title for the third time this year. She was already making headlines after being crowned champion of the 2019 J.P. Morgan Tournament of Champions, that was held in New York City last January.
It looks like Egyptians are dominating the category for sports, with Current World Champion and Current World number 1 for squash Mohamed El Shorbagy also making it to the list.
