On Halloween, I found myself at Sultan Center (Souq Sharq) with a few friends, because we needed stuff… for stuff, y’know?
Of course I couldn’t leave Souq Sharq without making a
quick stop at Sultan Center!
Like I said in my previous Spotted at Sultan Center post (here), I was hangry, hence the snackage. You know what? Looking at the haulage, it just occurred to me that I kinda’ do shop a lot at Sultan Center, so at this point, I might as well sign up for a Sultan Center Card (to benefit from whatever benefits that come with the Card). Knowing myself, the moment I sign up for the Sultan Center Card, I’d probably move on to Lulu Hypermarket or Carrefour or something, for good lawl Anywho, I picked up some Chips and Dip, some Fruits, a thing of of Caramel Popcorn, a tiny jar of Caviar and some Personal Care stuff (to qualify for the Scratch & Win Promo which I’ll be going over in detail, below).
I was stalking Zara at Souk Sharq for a particular item (the SA assured me it would be there by the 2nd day of Eid, as if I was supposed to just drop everything and go shopping lawl) and of course I made a quick stop at Sultan Center. Right off the bat, I spotted the Scratch & Win display. Basically, for every KD 4 purchase of Johnson’s products or Neutrogena products or Clean & Clear products, you qualified for a Scratch Card. The featured product seems to be the somewhat new Neutrogena Hydrogel Face Sheet Masks. I took a few photos of some random personal care items too, but I was haaangry so I didn’t take that many photos.
Feet. At best, they can look “healthy” (I’d never call feet pretty) but when neglected feet can get pretty gnarly. Growing up, I noticed that some people’s second toe was longer than their big toe (especially my cousins). For a time, that made me think I was a freak for having a big toe that’s longer than my second toe. I also noticed that my siblings had chubby looking feet with completely different nail-beds in comparison to mine. For the record, my siblings are skinny but have chubby feet (think along the lines of cherub feet, all fleshy and cute) whereas I am actually over-weight (plus-size, etc…) but my feet are not chubby in the least. My younger brother teased me about it once saying they all had cute chubby feet whereas mine were ugly. Obviously I had to respond so I made something up about how people with feet that looked like mine (not chubby) can be foot models (model footwear), as opposed to people with chubby feet. I was only making it up but my older sister said that it was in fact true, shocking both my younger brother and I. Just to be clear, I was only joking around because as far as I’m concerned, feet are feet. They just get you from point A to point B. That said, the way feet look can tell you a lot about a person. As a matter of fact, it’s one of the first things I notice in a person; the state of their shoes and if visible, their feet. The state of someone’s feet (and by extension, their shoes) lets me know whether this person is big on grooming and hygiene or if it’s all just for show. As for myself, before I got calluses, I used The Body Shop Peppermint Foot Scrub together with a pumice stone regularly, to maintain my feet. I believe the act of painting one’s toes is the epitome of femininity but I’m pretty much hopeless when it comes to painting my nails so I go for the occasional pedicure instead which is actually a nightmare because I can’t stand it when anyone touches my feet as I get tickled very easily (to this day).
Since I’m on a skincare kick, I figure why not keep it going? As I’ve mentioned before, my skin is a combination of dry skin with an oily T-zone so I’ve never really suffered from much acne or other skin-related problems but as an adult, I figure I should add more products to my pretty much spartan skincare regimen. Face scrubs are great for exfoliation once or twice a week but I wanted something to use on the daily, so I picked up the Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Acne Wash for a few KDs from the local supermarket mainly because it was pink and apparently I’m drawn to pink packaging or pink liquid… basically all things pink.
