December is here and it’s the time of year to enjoy the season’s best delights! Yet, it’s also that time of year when we all indulge in some extra calories and gain weight.
So I thought it would be interesting to share with you a couple of tips that will help you enjoy all the holiday yumminess without the guilt.
I wrote a detailed article about this topic on “The Make Over” website! Just click on >> Enjoy the Holidays without the Weight Gain!
I don’t know if you’re familiar with this site www.makeover.me, but it is a community website created by Kotex Lebanon, sharing lots of interesting and beneficial topics, tips and more about the menstrual cycle, health, healthy eating, beauty, relationships & fashion. The website also contains a movie guide to the latest movies in town.
What’s even more interesting is that they have a mobile application. So you can have all this content in hand at any time. You can download it from the App Store or via Google Play. It’s a very fresh and fun app, where you can check:
• Your profile
• Your menstrual calendar
• Ask Kay
• Daily blog posts
• Valuable gifts
• Your achievements

Did you start your gifts shopping for the season or not yet? Well if you want some incredible and delicious gifts don’t miss the festive season at Le Vendome.
I was invited to the grand opening on Saturday and got the chance to see the atelier and taste the mouthwatering chocolate.
How does it work?
You can prepare “customized” arrangement from all the choices available:
– Chocodome chocolate
– Silver or crystal ornaments
– Decorative items
– Packages includes: plates, wooden boxes, baskets and more
The Festive Market opens between December 6th and January 6th, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Well this recipe can’t get easier!
I tried last week the recipe posted on Al Wadi Al Akhdar Website and it turned excellent! So I went and did another batch yesterday.
I also tried the homemade marzipan recipe at home!I got it from a baking recipe book I’ve bought a couple of years ago.
It was super easy and delicious.
I’ll post how I’ll cover the cake with marzipan and icing soon, as I can’t do it now. I’ve to wait 4 weeks!!!
I got a call last week from my sister-in-law, who happens to be almost 5 months pregnant, asking what type of cheeses are not allowed during pregnancy.
I thought it would be interesting to share this with you!
Cheese products that can lead to food-borne illness are not allowed during pregnancy. The list includes:
– All unpasteurized dairy products (“raw” milk and cheeses)
– Soft cheeses such as brie, Camembert, feta and blue cheese
They can only be consumed if they are clearly “labeled” as being pasteurized or made with pasteurized milk.
