KitKat Coconut

My cousin’s cat (he’d named her Trouble lol) had just given birth to 3 beautiful kittens (1 female in a patchwork of black and brown and 2 all-white males). All 3 were just so darn cuuute! While watching them walk (or bounce, rather), I couldn’t help but think of cotton-balls (because they were just so fluffy lol).

The female kitten was such a scaredy-cat (literally, lol)! Any time anyone would visit my cousin, she’d run and hide and refuse to come out until they’d left, which was a bummer, because she looked the cutest and I would’ve loved to play with her, but I didn’t want her to have a heart attack either. Meanwhile, the other two male kittens (who were absolutely gorgeous, mind you) walked side-by-side with such purpose and intent, you’d think they were exploring the Serengeti, not my cousin’s living room, or more specifically, his couch lol They practically looked like tiny lions! Just watching those two balls of fluff “prowling” around the place, melted my heart repeatedly over the course of my visit! They were just so stinkin’ cute! ♥

As such, I was pretty much living at my cousin’s place.

During one of those visits, I was stuffing my face in his kitchenette, when I stumbled upon a box of KitKat in the flavor Coconut. Honestly, I wasn’t all that intrigued (I’m not big on chocolate). However, he kept insisting I try one. So, I did. It was surprisingly really, really good!

Being the glutton that I am, I asked him (I’m shameless lol) if I could take one more (to inhale at my leisure, back home). He insisted I take two (isn’t he a sweetie? … despite dis lol). Ever since then, I’ve been on the lookout for KitKat Coconut (which surprise, surprise isn’t stocked at my local co-op). I have spotted them and purchased them at Sultan Center since, though. They had a whole bunch of new(er) KitKat flavors, but I was only interested in KitKat Coconut.

If you happen to spot KitKat Coconut, do give it a try!

Sultan Center Haulage (February)

My first Sultan Center Haulage of the year! This was about 3 or 4 days before Valentine’s Day so I kinda’ went crazy over the Limited Edition stuff and also… I was hangry (which is appropriate, since I’m posting this during Ramadan, the time when people default to hangry)! Like I said in my previous Spotted at Sultan Center post (here), I hit up three different locations on my hunt for Herbal Tea. Even when I’d succeeded in averting my eyes and avoiding certain items at the first branch, by the time I hit up the final branch, my will power was non-existent (all tapped out) lol

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).

Carrefour Haulage (January)

Once again, I was at the Avenues and on my way back to my car, popped by Carrefour to replenish my stock of Jack Link’s Beef Jerky and pick up another Colgate 360 Toothbrush (every time I open up a new one to start using, I like to go out and purchase a back-up as quickly as possible, especially since I don’t always find these babies at any given local co-op).

While there, I couldn’t resist picking up these bars of KitKat because the name of the flavor (Cookie Crumble) made me lol Inspired by recent success with Lux Soap (here), I decided to try out a random scent, which smelled nice in-store, but was so floral and just awful during use!

At the Makeup Aisle, I was completely smitten with a Maybelline Nail Polish in the most delicious shade of coffee brown that was appropriately named Dark Roast! Keeping up with the chocolate-y theme (you know how much I love my themes), I snatched up a tiny pot of Cocoa Butter Body Cream from the brand Himalaya (or Himalaya Herbals? I dunno… it’s just one of those brands that’s always been around, in every drugstore and local co-op, since the beginning of time) to stash in my car for when I forget to moisturize. Lastly, I hit up the Essence counter and picked up a few things (more on that below).

Sultan Center Haul #13

So this was my final haul of 2018 and took place at Salmiya branch of Sultan Center (spotted here). I porked up almost immediately (my clothes were noticeably tighter and didn’t fit as well anymore) and I credit this haul for single-handedly causing me to balloon in size… practically over-night lol I’ve gained 7 kg (which is around 15.4 lb) in total since, but whatever (as long as my tummy is happy)!

So it appears that Snyder’s Pretzels are used in these Hershey’s Dipped Pretzels. It also seems that everyone is collabing with everyone else over everything.

Spotted at Sultan Center (December)

So they had this little display set up at Sultan Center (Salmiya). People kept walking into my shot, realizing I was trying to take a pic and stopping halfway through with the deer-in-headlights look on their face. It wasn’t the prettiest display in the world, but it was enough to set off my cousin’s wife who had gone from being a happy-go-lucky Lebanese cutie pie who used to dye her hair regularly and wear jeans and fitted tops, and smoke sheesha in public, to now covering her hair (wearing a hijab) and wearing super loose clothing and being uptight and judgmental about literally everything (after she’d gotten married).

I tried explaining the concept of “live and let live”, but she jumped down my throat and said I was turning my back on my religion so I lost interest in the conversation and instead pointed out other stuff at Sultan Center that she’d find more interesting (to distract her so she’d back off). I really like her, but dang, this us vs them mentality bugs me so much! Moving on to something much lighter…

Sultan Center Haul #12

As I mentioned in my latest “Spotted at Sultan Center” post (here) I picked up a handful of snackage as well as some other random items. I’ll be referencing that post quite a bit in this post (but I won’t keep linking to it), so if you’re interested, feel free to check it out before you continue.
