These are the 2 Canvas Tote Bags I mentioned towards the end of the 5th paragraph of My Story: Handbags Post (here). I purchased the Marks & Spencer Twiggy Tote myself, from the Marks & Spencer Flagship store in Salmiya either in 2007 or 2008 (around the peak of the Anya Hindmarsh “I’m Not a Plastic Bag” trend). My younger brother got me the Green Elephant Tote as a gift from his trip to Sri Lanka for charity, where he and other Kuwaiti volunteers, built houses over there, around 2016 (most guys usually celebrate their bachelor party in Vegas or go on all-guys trip to somewhere like Spain for one last hurrah, before getting married, but my younger brother is definitely not like most guys). As such, I associate both Tote Bags with “Feel Good” vibes!
Okay, so I’d actually gone in to Marks and Spencer looking for a pair of fishnet tights (because apparently they were having a “moment” in fashion) but once I noticed all the Easter-themed snacks, the tights were long forgotten. As always, I took photos of everything the very next day (in proper daylight and everything) but I guess I never got around to blogging about them and 5 months later, here we are. The reason I’m doing this (still) is because I was mostly disappointed with almost everything I’d purchased in my previous Marks and Spencer Snack Haualage (here) except for the Green Chilli, Lime & Coriander Pea Snaps. Everything else had tasted off including the Polar Bear Pals Gummi Sweet and Jelly Stars (how do you mess up Gummi Candy?). I faced the same issue again with this haul. It’s either the flavor is off, or the texture is strange, or the scent is vile. There’s always something weird about M&S snacks. I mean once is a fluke but twice? I wish there was somewhere I could find reviews or something about Marks & Spencer snackage so I’d know what to keep an eye out for, or at least what to avoid. That’s why I feel honor-bound (lawl dramatic much?) to go ahead with this post regardless of how much time has passed.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always lusted after Ugg Boots. I just thought they were the coolest thing ever!
