My C9 Journey

My C9 Journey

My C9 Journey

Well as you guys know I was doing a cleansing program called C9 (clean 9) last week so as  I just got finished with it a few days back I thought of sharing my review on it.

What is C9 (Clean 9) ?

C9 program is an easy to follow cleansing program that will give you all the tools you need to jumpstart your journey and transform your body.

I was a bit hesitant to try it out at first as I thought it wouldn’t work (like the others before) but to my amazement I was hooked to it till the end and followed it strictly.

I lost 3.5kgs…oh yes I did 🙂 not only this but 2 inches on all major parts of my body as well (Chest,biceps,waist,hips,thighs and calves)…

So here’s all you need to know about the C9 (Clean 9) cleansing program 

What the C9(Clean 9) pack/box includes:

C9 (Clean 9) Program Pack/Box

x2  1 liter bottles of Forever Aloe Vera Gel

This gel helps cleanse the digestive system and maximize absorption of nutrients 

x1 15 serving pouch of Forever Lite Ultra 

A shake mix that is rich in source of vitamins and minerals 

54 softgels of Forever Garcinia Plus

supplements help the body burn fat more efficiently and help suppress appetite.

9 packets of Forever Fiber

helps promote feeling of fullness

18 tablets of Forever Therm

A powerful combination of botanical extracts and vitamins that help support metabolism.

The box also contains A Tape Measure and a Booklet (to note down your progress)

So to start with 

You will need to measure your self a day before and note down your measurements  in the booklet

Once you do that start with  the C9 program the very next zday.

Days 1 & 2
Days 3 though 9

Everything you need to do is mentioned in the booklet and the images above show the program you need to follow exactly as outlined in the booklet for the next 9 days 

To be honest Days 1 & 2 are the toughest but the first two days help reset your body’s ability to detoxify and help you prepare for Days 3 through 9 So they will pass by

Everything single thing needs to be documented in the booklet.. any extra food you eat,your water intake,the type of exercise you do each day everything! to help you keep track 👇🏻

Checklist + Notes to be Noted Down

Free food can be enjoyed (that are also mentioned in the booklet) For me I skipped the regular desi homemade food and just had cucumbers or 2-3 glasses of water to curb my hunger and stay within the 600 calorie limit

Fruits,Veggies and Free Food Guide

This program is to flush out the toxins so increase in water intake is highly important (maximum by having 8-15 glasses each day).

I followed the program very strictly and was happy with the result :).

You might not get the same results.. as it all depends on your baseline factors but I can surely guarantee you that you will feel energized and will get to see amazing affect on your skin and hair as well in the end.

Here are a few before and after pictures of me 🙂

Build-a-Bear Workshop Experience

Build-a-Bear Workshop Experience



After a few months of waiting..Princess Z finally got a chance this EID to experience and build her own bear at the Build-A Bear Workshop

This workshop is every kids favorite but for those of you who don’t know :

Build-A-Bear Workshop is the only company in the world that offers an interactive, make-your-own stuffed cuddly toy family experience! 

When you walk into a Build-A-Bear Workshop store you get to create your own cuddly toy, by choosing it, stuffing it, adding a sound and giving it a heart full of wishes. You can dress and accessorize it before making a personalized birth certificate and taking it home in its own special Cub Condo carrying case!

There are many Build-a-Bear Workshop stores here in Dubai but we decided to go to the DFC (Dubai Festival City) branch which we thought had the most options than anywhere else.

As we walked into the store I could see my little princess getting over excited 😆 with everything finding it hard to choose….but after a while of searching and deciding… Princess Z finally decided to go with the FROZEN (ELSA) TEDDY 👇🏻

The Frozen Collection

Next step was to chose her VOICE/SOUND…obviously as it was Elsa we went with the Let it go song…🎶

The STUFFING came in next….before sealing the Elsa teddy completely.We gave it a HEART ❤ (sealed with kisses and love) as well as added a BUBBLE GUM Smell (rubbing it against her and stuffing it in)….

Thus…The Elsa bear 🐻 was born ☺

Rubbing On The Bubble Gum Scent
Sealing In The Heart ❤

Next was Princess Z’s favorite part WASHING & DRESSING/ACCESSORIZING her Elsa Bear up..

Once everything was done we headed to one of the computers filled in the information… personalized and collected our Teddy’s BIRTH CERTIFICATE and headed to the counter for payment. 

Birth Certificate In Progress
Truly And Surely..

Total cost of our ❄🐻: 338 AED

*Note:everything is charged separately (accessories etc..) and prices may vary on selection 🙂

So happy to welcome a new member in our family…🐻This surely was a great experience for Princess Z and not only did she throughly enjoy it! We did too 🙂… 

I highly recommend going to the the DFC (Dubai Festival City) branch of Build-A-Bear Workshop…excellent service,super friendly and helpful staff… totally awesome 👏🏻 🙌🏻

*Great for kids over 4+ as they will be old enough to understand and enjoy this amazing experience.

Cafe Ceramique

Cafe Ceramique


Cafe Ceramique is located in Town Centre in Jumeirah. This place is surely to be visited. I have been to this place many times but it was Princess Z first time and she was super excited about it. We decided to go there on a weekday around 7pm.Once we arrived we were surprised to see the place empty. It’s usually crowded at this time of the evening but i think we were lucky.Anyway, we choose a comfortable seat in the middle. The massive varieties of ceramics displayed on wooden shelves against the wall attracted us. It was hard to choose one.Princess Z was confused at first but then after taking her time she decided to go with a Halloween special pumpkin decoration.

Ceramics displayed aligned to the wall
The Halloween collection
The chosen one

Note: The prices for each ceramic are different and are mentioned below the piece you chose (The pumpkin cost us 125 Dhs)

Anyway, the next step was to clean our ceramic to clear off any dirt on it with sponge and water. Then it was time to select the paints. We were given an option to choose any 7 colors from the palette on the place mats. We chose 6 plain colors from the Splash n Dash section and 1 glittery one from the PokaDot section. Once our colors arrived we were ready to go. Squeezing the paints on the palette we started getting creative. Princess Z decided to paint it all differently. Creating a creation of her own. She was totally enjoying it at first, painting patiently. But then starting rushing up with things and got tired. Leaving it half-way, I had to paint the remaining giving it the final touches.After I was done I handed over the pumpkin to a staff member to fire it. The firing process is done to make the raw artwork into a finished masterpiece.

In the end I was told to fill a form with my contact details to be contacted once it was ready for collection. Approximately it takes 7-8days.

The collection corner

This was a place Princess Z totally wants to visit again,and totally excited to see her end result. 🙂 Who doesn’t love to paint and mess around! If you’re planning to make some crazy and fun memories with your kids than this is one place I totally recommend.

Brushes, paints, stamps- everything is supplied by the café. Just bring the artists in you and get creative :).

Cafe Ceramique is located on the 1st floor of Town Centre Mall,Jumeirah. 04-3447331
