I am the one
don’t weigh a ton
don’t need a gun
to get respect up on the street
Jokes, Jokes! I am is actually the name of my favorite accessories store! I am has a much nicer and way better selection than Claire’s! Their products are more durable (last longer) and they’re substantially less expensive (read: dirt cheap) too! For whatever reason, both accessories stores I am and Claire’s are wall-to-wall with each other (I wonder if it was by design, because if so, someone has a great sense of humor. I am Claire’s. Geddit?) I believe I am originated in Germany (hence the superior quality). In fact, my first time shopping at I am was actually while I was in Germany! They sold everything from Handbags and Scarves to Sunglasses and of course Jewelry. Here’s the thing though, everything they sold looked insanely awesome (granted they didn’t cater to tweens lawl)! That’s why I was super excited when they opened up shop in Kuwait and I’ve been shopping there quite frequently ever since! Sadly, for whatever reason, they don’t seem to get much traction over here (which is a shame). C’mon guys, go support I am by buying their stuff!
As we were leaving Bath & Body Works (haulage here) my niece spotted a Jojo Bow display at Claire’s and legit lost. her. mind. (sound familiar? like aunt, like niece, I guess) She started bouncing in place while excitedly shrieking JojoBowJojoBowJojoBow, repeatedly. She strung the name all-together that at first, I couldn’t even understand what she was trying to say. Honestly, I thought she was trying (and failing) to say jojoba (lawl). Eventually, I realized what she meant (no small thanks to her, for actually pointing out the display, stacked with rows and rows of Oversized Bows).
The little girl in the promo shot is called Jojo and she’s famous for a whole bunch of stuff. She sings, she dances (she was on 2 seasons of Dance Moms… with her mom), she acts (I believe she’s on Nickelodeon), she’s a “YouTube Persoality” and she has her own line of Hair Bows aptly called Jojo Bows, just to name a few. All that and she’s barely 15 years old! Apparently, little girls idolize Jojo and according to my niece a Jojo Bow is a must-have! So in we went to Claire’s (little girl’s accessories store) to pick up a Jojo Bow for my niece. While waiting for her to decide on a “Mystery Bag“, I picked up 2 Black Headbands and a pack of Basic Black Bobby Pins for myself (mostly out of boredom rather than anything else lawl).
H&M were having a promotion awhile ago (a couple months ago actually) for H&M Fashion Week where if you bought any two items you got the third free and also for every 10KD spent you got an entry coupon for the raffle draw (I think it was either KD1,000 or KD 10,000). I only found out about the promo after I decided to pop in to H&M (1st Avenue – the one facing Shake Shack, MAC, River Island, etc… and wall-to-wall with Zara). Right off the bat, I noticed that they’d revamped the store (moving all the makeup, skincare, hair stuff, shoes, handbags and other accessories from one of the entrances, all the way to that little area, that used to be reserved for childrens’ clothes, whereas the kids’ clothes have now been moved one floor up). I wasn’t really in the mood to try on any clothes but I couldn’t resist picking up a few brushes (as you can see) and once I found out about the buy two get one free deal, I decided to pick up a few more random items.
I picked up a few items (hair stuff) from Boots. All of them are repurchases… kinda’.
I stalk Boots regularly because they always seem to be out of my favorite nail polish remover (reviewed here) so I’m always on the look-out for when they restock it. At the moment, I’m fully stocked up (hauled here) but at an earlier visit to Boots I managed to spy a few things that seemed quite interesting!
