I didn’t include the title because that in and of itself is a spoiler. I glimpsed the title accidentally, (while constantly refreshing the website where I stream The Walking Dead) and it sorta’ ruined the whole episode for me (anyone with half a brain could figure it out). That said, I actually liked this episode because it wasn’t as slow as some of the other episodes (from past seasons). It wasn’t crazy eventful but it was suspenseful enough for me. They were laying it on pretty thick (that whole flower thing was a bit much) within the first 2 minutes of the episode (I was all prepared to be in a huff about how cheezy it was and everything) but then everything made sense (it didn’t work on me but I could understand their objective)… much, much later on. Also, Carol got a lot of screen-time, which is always awesome for me, mainly because I love her! Meanwhile Rick and Daryl were having a Bollywood moment (or as we refer to them in Kuwait, Filim Hindi, even though there’s no such language as Hindi…) I mean, I have no issue with suspending my beliefs for a tv show but No, Rick, just… no. You’d think with everything else that I’d let slide, this would be a non-issue but for some reason, this is where I draw the line. I couldn’t help it. I burst into laughter when I saw that part. In fact, I went back and watched it again just to make sure I really saw what I saw. Those who aren’t aware of the classic Bollywood Movie cliches might be more familiar with bad 80’s cop movies. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you watch the episode (maybe?).
Also, where’s Negan? It’s been a couple of episodes already. Are they really gonna’ hide him from us, up until the mid-season finale? :(
M∙A∙C Snow Ball. Find your rhythm. All eyes are on the cool kids, hanging out, swaying to the beat, showing off with a little festive flirtation. You’re the sleighbelle of the ball, dancing until morning, feeling alive, reveling in the new generation. The lights catch a crystal and glitter snowflake adornment, all the bling you’ll ever need – everyone goes starstruck. See you on the dance floor.
Yes, MAC, Yaaas!
The MAC Holiday 2017 Collection is a thing of dreams! From the crushed champagne metallic packaging to the snowflake-embossed design on the actual products themselves (kinda’ like the pretty lids on the Bath & Body Work mini candles, hauled here), the whole collection is absolutely stunning! Not only is the festive packaging the epitome of holiday-appropriate (reflects the Holiday Season oh-so-perfectly), not only is it heartbreakingly gorgeous (definitely a collector’s item), but it’s also very elegant and sophisticated (nowhere near the previous MAC Holiday Collections some of which were quite juvenile)! Whoever dreamed this up seriously deserves a raise (or a big fat bonus, at the very least)! The last MAC Collection that took my breath away like this was the Alluring Aquatic Collection (previewed here), (hauled here), (reviewed here). Even the name of this collection, Snow Ball, is deliciously appropriate! I cannot wait for MAC Snow Ball Collection to become available in Kuwait (it’s already out, world-wide) and I’m definitely going to be picking up a few choice pieces!
My phone has been blowing up with texts from people about the earthquake that shook Kuwait a couple of minutes ago. Apparently, it was a 7.2 on the Richter Scale (which is pretty serious). Thankfully, it seems that everyone is safe (if only a bit… shook, sorry couldn’t resist). We rarely get earthquakes over here, if ever, which is why it’s kind of a big deal for some. I called up my younger brother (literally minutes after people started blowing up my phone) to ask if he felt it and he’s all “Yeah, I felt it. I’m also trying to watch Season 2 of Stranger Things so let’s talk later, bye”. Well okay then. As for myself, I didn’t feel a thing (I happened to be running, at the time) and now I kinda’ feel left out.
Oh no! Our group are the monsters!
