Back to Blonde (Photo Heavy)


Serving you some Draco Malfoy realness lawl

After spending forever trying to get into my personal Instagram account (I totally forgot my password, which just goes to show how often I actually use the app lawl) to frantically hunt down something appropriate to wear during Ramadan, I kept on receiving those annoying notifications from Instagram on my phone afterwards. I spent weeks ignoring them, but on July 12, I’d finally had enough and tried to disable the notifications through the app itself, which is when an ad for Belleza and more Salon & Spa popped up. I clicked the ad (which took me to their insta account) and immediately my eyes were drawn to the photo shown below.

Translation: Ammonia-free Dye and Bleach… Extra Strength Protection used with every Hair Coloring Session… so the hair does not get damaged and the color remains… vibrant and rich with a beautiful shine to make the hair appear healthy and fresh

As soon as I spotted that gorgeous ash-blonde color (in the After photo) I was obsessed! Seeing as how I’d just chopped off all my hair (pics, here), I was less hesitant about messing with it. Plus, they straight up advertised “ammonia-free dye” and “extra-strength protection”. It seemed legit. Being the impulsive creature that I am, I quickly called them up and made an appointment (30 mins from time of call) to dye my hair!

Spotted at Sultan Center (Souq Sharq Mall + Promenade Mall)

I visited both the Souq Sharq branch and the Promenade branch of Sultan Center on separate days during the month of September, but decided to group them together for this post.

Basically, I keep running out of either the Chunky Salsa (Medium) or Tostitos Hint of Lime Tortilla Chips (which is all I’ve been craving recently). As long as it’s not Hot (which makes my nose run, eyes water, ears turn red, tongue swell up and lips feel like they’re on fire) nor Mild (which is tasteless), I’m not picky about which brand of Salsa I get. My only prerequisites are that it’s Chunky (with veggies) and Medium (has a kick to it), which is generally easy to find at any branch. Sadly, the Tostitos Hint of Lime Tortilla Chips are less easy to find (they appear in and out of stock at random), which is why I’m always on a scavenger hunt of sorts (because I never know if they’re in stock or not) at Sultan Center.

With that being said, I’m happy to report that I spotted those delicious Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies (reviewed here) in all the branches! I didn’t get any, because like I said, I’ve only been craving Tortilla Chips and Salsa recently. However, it’s nice to see the Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies available in large quantities. Plus, Chips Ahoy! even partnered up with Microsoft to come up with a little promo featuring one of the games (Sea Of Thieves) on Xbox One. I’ve never heard of that game before, but still, what a fun idea!

Tinashe – Stuck With Me ft. Little Dragon

I’m a train-wreck, I’m a car crash” lol ME!

I’ve never heard of Tinashe before, but after randomly stumbling on this specific song on YouTube, I’m pretty much obsessed with her! She’s got a handful of other fun songs as well, but this one is my current favorite! I’ve been listening to it non-stop (in my car and everyone else’s car for that matter, on my phone when I’m out running errands, in the shower, anywhere and everywhere really) for the past 2-3 months now! Since the first verse literally says “For the weekend“, I thought I’d share this with you guys during the weekend, so here ya’ go! Enjoy, and as always, hope you have a lovely weekend!

Charmed (reboot)

Okay, okay, I promise this’ll be the last one of those Halloween-y type shows (hey, it’s not my fault a whole slew of them debuted in October). Basically, Charmed is about sisters who discover they have magical powers. The original show aired in 1998 (also during October lol) and ended in 2006. The reboot (which has already had so much controversy leading up to its debut) began airing this past October.
