Chef LuLu (Part 8)

September 28

Mera made me promise not to have lunch, because she was bringing over “The best seafood you’ve ever tasted in your entire life!”

I however was already used to her exaggerations, so I knew to keep my expectations low.

After I’d ignored Mera’s phone calls one too many times, she’d called up another one of her friends and made plans to go walking in Shaheed Park. After the walk, her friend had taken Mera to Lobster Shack for the first time.

Since Mera had enjoyed the food so much, she had to have it everyday, until she got sick of it (her MO). That’s why she was bringing it over to my place that day, and would go there by herself to have lunch there, every single day (unless we had plans), up until she could no longer stand it.

Mera called me up over the phone and asked me if I prefer Mixed Seafood (Mussels + Crab + Shrimp) or just all Shrimp? I told her I was fine with whatever, but after much prodding from her, said that I prefered Mixed Seafood (I eat everything).

To which she responded, she doesn’t eat Mussels or Crabs and prefers Shrimp. So, I told her she could get whatever, again. I didn’t see the issue…


She came over with a Tub of Mixed Seafood from Lobster Shack… in the size Small (shown in the video) meant to be shared between the both of us.

Walker’s Banana Split Eclairs Toffee

My friends are back from summer vacation so I’ve been busy catching up with all of them. I’m also trying to do the Easter Egg on Call of Duty – Zombies Map IX (9), or as I call it, “The Arena” Map. Lastly, I started reading the Mistborn series on my Kindle. That’s why I’ve kinda’ been neglecting my blog lol (soz!)

I placed an order with ColourPop during their Labor Day Sale which just arrived the other day, so “haulage” coming soon, and since I’ve gone through most of my Handbags, I’m going to be moving on to posting about my Shoes and which ones I’m going to keep, donate or trash.

Anyways, I popped by Saveco to grab a handful of Walker’s Banana Split Eclairs Toffee at KD 0/200 a pack and bounced. Like I said, these are located at the check-out counter so I didn’t browse around or anything like that, because I’m trying to make better choices about how and when I spend my monies. That said, I did pop over to LuLu to replenish my stock of Takis (next post) lol

I purchased these Walker’s Banana Split Eclairs Toffee earlier just to try (here) and then two more packs (here) and another two more packs (here). At this point, it’s safe to say I really enjoy them!

Spotted at Sultan Center (Valentine’s Day)

Technically, it was a few days before Valentine’s Day, but the title sounded nicer this way! I was actually on the hunt for some Herbal Tea (as much as I enjoy them, my pseudo-coffee drinks, they weren’t much help in the sleep department) which was the main reason why I hit up several branches of Sultan Center (Promenade – Salmiya – Souq Sharq)… on the same day… back-to-back (totally sane behavior).

Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan

I really delved into Netflix in 2018 and found a ton of entertaining shows and documentaries, and even a few movies! One show that I enjoyed quite a lot, that didn’t happen to be by Netflix was Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan! The entire season was only just 8 episodes, but each episode was satisfyingly meaty (no fluff)! The main character Jack Ryan was played by none other than the adorably charming John Krasinski (he of The Office fame) with the supporting role played by Wendall Pierce (who has been in everything, except I recognize him as Megan Markle’s dad on Suits lol). Basically, Jack Ryan is a CIA analyst (desk job) that gets thrust into field work operations… unwillingly.

Sephora Haulage + Engraving Service

My latest trip to Sephora was quite eventful! For starters, I lost my White Sephora Card, again. So, I had to sign up for a new one, all over again. I used the same e-mail and phone number, so I’m hoping that the points got transferred (forgot to check). If not, that’s still okay, because I purchased no less than 3 perfumes as birthday gifts (2 girls, 1 guy) which will definitely help me rack up the points to get upgraded from a White Sephora Card to a Black Sephora Card (deets here) that much faster. The perfumes are not shown because I already gifted them to the recipients. I did ask for some fragrance samples (because buying perfumes for others kinda’ made me wanna’ play around with some of my own) and surprise surprise, they’d “just ran out of samples“. However, I was promised that my perfume picks would get decanted into tiny little vials in lieu of fragrance samples (which made me happy)! Plus, I got everything shown in the photo above as a gift with purchase (unprompted) which put a hole in my samples theory (mentioned here) where I mistakenly thought that if you purchased skincare and makeup-y bits, you could only get skincare samples and makeup-y samples, and if you purchased perfumes then you could only get perfume samples. Apparently, the Sales Assistants just hand out whatever to whomever, whenever.

Claire’s Choose Happy Notebook

This pretty notebook shouts summer with a sky blue cover and palm tree design featuring graphic print glitter text ‘Choose Happy‘ written across the front.

How adorable is this notebook? I absolutely love the graphics and the color scheme! It’s all so very cute and summer-y! I know, I know. As an adult female, I really should stop visiting Claire’s (namely because it’s a little girls’ store) but I just can’t help stopping by from time to time, because it really is such a cute store and I always find the cutest things there (like this notebook)! ^_~

Twilight Beauty

Inspired by the Twilight Saga book/movie franchise, the people behind Duwop have created a new cosmetic brand “Twilight Beauty“. The two lines that have debuted appropriately in time for Halloween are “Luna Twilight” aimed at the more mature fans, and the less costly “Volturi” which is geared towards the younger fans (extra emphasis on glitter and such).
