So, I’m somewhat of an Anglophile. I love British Telly! In fact, one of my favorite movies of all time is Green Street Hooligans (based on football hooliganism). I also enjoy watching everything from Sherlock and Black Mirror to Outlander and The Inbetweeners. Honestly, everything just sounds better with an accent. I simply adore the London accent (Cockney Rhyming Slang) and literally everything the main lead said in the movie The Kingsman sounded ridiculously cool to me, but I’m quite partial to a Geordie accent as well. There was this one show (discontinued, I believe) called Aliens… My God, it had me in hysterics from the on-set and throughout! British humor just slays me! It’s so dry and witty and I love it!

With that being said, I’m completely, hopelessly and wholeheartedly obsessed with British Reality TV Shows! I recently became a huge fan of Big Brother (UK), but I’ve watched Geordie Shore and The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent and so on, from the very start. You name it, I’ve watched it. My current drug of choice is a reality show called Love Island. It’s like a train-wreck that I just can’t look away from, so… pretty much crack! I’ve got a handful of Brit friends (in Kuwait) who actually can’t stand that stuff. Another thing I find fascinating about the Brits is their attitude! I’ve come across several large groups of Brits while abroad, and they always seem to be in a jovial mood (granted they were three sheets to the wind), and they’d literally break out into song, out of nowhere! I come across a lot of Brits online (Xbox One) as well, and their sense of humor is the best! I’ve been to the UK about 4-5 times and I’ve enjoyed every single trip, so far! For all those reasons above and more (but I won’t go too much into it now) I classify myself as somewhat of an Anglophile.

Local Co-op Haul

I just wanted to pick up another Nivea (For Men) Shaving Foam (full review here) and ended up getting another one of those Colgate 360 Toothbrushes (this time in Gold… yuck), some really cute Bandaids (can’t resist those) and Tweezers (neon). Cool Kick seems to have been renamed to Fresh & Cool now. Hey, as long as it performs the same, they could call it Chemicals in a Can, for all I care.

Oxygen Gym Haul

Same day as my Platinum Gym Haulage (here), I decided to check out Oxygen Gym in Jabriya. I remember spotting it earlier from one of the main roads. As I was about to stumble into Oxygen Gym (why does the entrance looks like an entrance to a nightclub?) when these 2 bodybuilder-looking types (bouncers? to fit in with the whole “club theme”?) got in my face and informed me it was an all-male gym. I told them I was only looking to buy some protein, not join their precious gym. I kid you not, their demeanor totally changed after that (they pretty much turned into teddy-bears)!

They told me that I should just go ahead and come back at the first week of every month (or something along those lines, I forgot) for the monthly sale (protein shakes, protein bars, etc…) which I thought was nice of ’em. My nutritionist and several other doctors had explained to me that time was of the essence, so I needed protein asap and I said so. Since I couldn’t wait, they pointed out another store further up ahead and across the street that was also called Oxygen Nutrition (so… affiliated with Oyxgen Gym?) that supposedly had what I needed. I thanked them and drove there. As I got closer, I noticed thanks to the huge glass windows (you could totally see right into the place) that this place was stocked with pretty much everything!

I walked out with a Whey Protein Drink (look at me, throwing out words like Whey, as if had any clue what it actually meant lawl) and more than a handful of Protein Bars.

Shaolin Shuffle

Hair Accessory: Boots Black Velvet Scrunchie (haulage here)
Sunglasses: Red Aviators (purchased at a random store abroad in 2015)
Outerwear: Zara Floral Embroidered Shirt (haulage here)
Top: Zara Black TRF Polo Shirt (purchased in 2006 – not 2016 – 2006)
Trousers: H&M Burgundy Overdyed Twill Trousers (haulage here)
Shoes: Studded Black Wedge Sneakers (purchased online from either PLNDR or Karmaloop in 2012)

Shaolin Shuffle is actually one of the DLC maps in COD (if you didn’t understand any part of that sentence, don’t worry about it). The Zara Floral Embroidered Shirt (haulage here) – which as I said, looks like a cross between a Kung Fu Master’s Outfit and a Cheongsam (Traditional Chinese Dress) – was the inspiration behind the title of this post. I love this thing! It’s all long and flowy and just so cool!

Unfortunately, it’s a bit difficult to see (in detail), due to the horrible lighting in my bedroom. Everything looks much darker than it actually is. In reality, the Aviators have a bright red frame, whereas the Trousers are actually burgundy. I insisted on having dimmers and this (insufficient lighting) was the end result. At this point, it’s safe to say that I’m pretty much hopeless when it comes to this whole “Outfit of the Day” thing lol
