Celebrate World Book Day with Bookworms and Kitabi kitabak at Bahrain City Center!

Kitabi Kitabak is a movement that collects new and pre-read books for children and teens and creates new libraries or revamps old ones in Palestinian refugee camps and other impoverished cities. 

Help your children participate in this wonderful event, let them pick and choose some of their own loved books that they are ready to part with to give to those less fortunate. Or take them to a bookstore to buy some new books to contribute then let them have the experience of bringing the books to this box. You can also encourage schools, local libraries, and bookstores to contribute. Let’s see this box fill up 😉
(No text books plz and keep the books for children and teens only, not for adults. Pre-read should be in good condition. Coloring books should obviously be new.)
For more on Kitabi kitabak, click here.

To stay tuned with Bookworm’s progress and to view pictures, like their page:

 Contirbute your books in the box provided (view attachment).

Here is an amazing series by photographer Tamara Abdul Hadi (Sundus’ sister) called ‘Picture an Arab Man’.  The series is a collection of images of arab men from diverse backgrounds who are semi nude (shirtless).  They have been stripped down from all stereotypes, propaganda and “racial profiling” and what you see is raw images highlighting that there is more to an arab man that what we have been programmed to see.  Post 9-11 we have the media shoving negative stereotypes of what arabs look like and who they are.  This series sheds light on the many faces of our men who are proud of their rich middle eastern heritage.  You can support her project by visiting this site here and watch the video of her series.

 Artist: Tamara Abdul Hadi is an Iraqi Canadian photojournalist who has been published in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian and more. Her personal photography projects deal with social change and deconstructing stereotypes. Abdul Hadi is a co-founding member of Rawiya Collective.

I love ZARA! You can always be sure to find the perfect fashion must have trend.  Below are my picks that I think are sooo fresh for spring! I am loving the jackets, neon and coral trousers.. most of the items shown in the images are great for hijab wearers since they can all be modestified in more ways than one.  Check out the studs on the shoulders of the first jacket!! ❤ I want them all in my closet now!!! 😉

Which is your favorite piece?
