Yolanda Effect: Posh & David Beckham designer clothes and shoes are listed on eBay for up to THREE TIMES the original price

From :

They gave more than 20 boxes of clothes, bags and shoes in an attempt to raise money for victims of Typhoon Haiyan but pieces from David and Victoria Beckham's bumper donation have already ended up in less scrupulous hands.

Just hours after the Red Cross shop selling the Beckhams' donations opened, items from the sale are already listed on eBay.

Among them are a tuxedo that belonged to the former England footballer and a pair of Dolce & Gabbana shoes that were once owned by his wife.

Many of the pieces also have reserve prices that far outstrip that charged by the charity shop, with the tuxedo offered for a minimum £300 - far higher than the £75 needed to buy it.

The original sale, which opened this morning, saw fans queue around the block in a bid to get their hands on items owned by the superstar couple.

A Red Cross source said: ‘We asked if they would like to help us raise money for the Typhoon Haiyan survivors and they jumped at the chance.

Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines on Friday November 8th, and has left more than four million people homeless.

"SELFIE" is the Word of the year 2013

I can’t even narrow when it all started ,  the last time I have my selfie post is like an hour ago and still doing some more, 

 This year marks the craziest craze in the world wide web regardless of your age, race, religion, pretty or not, we love the SELFIE trend, 

recently, the word "Selfie" has been named as word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries in 2013

Bits of "Selfie" History from Wikipedia:

The term "selfie" was discussed by photographer Jim Krause in 2005,[8] although photos in the selfie genre predate the widespread use of the term.
In the early 2000s, before Facebook became the dominant online social network, self-taken photographs were particularly common on MySpace
However, writer Kate Losse recounts that between 2006 and 2009 (when Facebook became more popular than MySpace), the "MySpace pic" (typically "an amateurish, flash-blinded self-portrait, often taken in front of a bathroom mirror") became an indication of bad taste for users of the newer Facebook social network.

Early Facebook portraits, in contrast, were usually well-focused and more formal, taken by others from distance. In 2009 in the image hosting and video hosting website Flickr, Flickr users used 'selfies' to describe seemingly endless self-portraits posted by teenage girls.
According to Losse, improvements in technology—especially the front-facing camera introduced in the iPhone 4(2010) and mobile photo apps such as Instagram—led to the resurgence of selfies in the early 2010s.

Initially popular with young people, selfies have become popular among adults as well.
In December 2012, Time magazine noted that selfie was among its the "top 10 buzzwords" of 2012; although selfies had existed for years, it was in 2012 that the term "really hit the big time".

According to a 2013 survey, two-thirds of Australian women age 18-35 take selfies—the most common purpose for which is posting on Facebook.[11]A poll commissioned by smartphone and camera maker Samsung found that selfies make of 30% of the photos taken by people aged 18–24.

By 2013, the word "selfie" had become commonplace enough to be monitored for inclusion in the online version of the Oxford English Dictionary.

In November 2013, the word "selfie" was announced as being the "word of the year" by the Oxford English Dictionary which gave the word itself an Australian

Convenient Family Restaurants in Kuwait

Dining out has sometimes become a torture to me especially when I have 3 kids to look after, nanny might come in handy but things are sometimes out of hand,

Some  people may  understand the nature of kids but beyond that, it is always awkward to see kids running around and break things

But such reasons never limit me, as  I always go back to the basic and the importance that kids are human and it is a necessity to bring them outside of the house, we might not want the trouble but we can always try to keep them behave or distract them with toys or anything that will grab their attention but in most cases, they are bound to explore and play so it is very important to find a suitable place

In Kuwait, there are many restaurants that caters family serving food but few actually go beyond food and make the place convenient for family dinners

Here is a  list of a convenient places to dine with kids in Kuwait

1.)   IKEA Restaurant ( at the avenues mall)
2.)   Burger King ( salmiya sea Side)
3.)   McDonalds ( sea side)
4.)   Hard rock Café
5.)   Food world at the avenues mall

The above listed restaurants are considerable places where parents will have that convenient to dine as well as worry less about their little explorers

Would be best to keep the list long for other parents to know, 

So if you are in Kuwait and know any places that are in the above category do send me a mail
