After Aldo (haulage here), I spotted a teeny tiny Boots store (ground floor) and decided to pop in for a quick peek. I ended up getting a Hair BB Powder (wuuuuuut) and some Lash Glue (to master putting on False Lashes in a jiffy) and a pair of False Lashes (for practice).
At the Souk Sharq branch of Sultan Center, I literally had them check every other branch (including storage) to see if they had any Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Cookies in stock. The guy informed that they did in fact have them in the Sultan Center branches in areas like Jahra, Fahaheel, etc… (so far out of my way and just plain far). He mentioned that they might have them at the Sultan Center located at the Promenade in the Hawally. After snagging my Souk Sharq haulage (here), I went back home but couldn’t quite let it go. I just had to get more of those Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Cookies and as I’ve learned the hard way, these babies go fast! So at the break of dawn, I hit up the Sultan Center located in Hawally (Promenade) as well!
Because that’s just how insane I am, I waited for as long as I could before setting out (at the break of dawn) to the Promenade (Hawally) branch of Sultan Center in search of my beloved Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies. I managed to find 4 packs (score)! I also picked up yet another Dip (for Potato Chips). There was only one dude manning the cash register and as luck would have it, the thing straight up malfunctioned. It took forever for them to get it fixed. While waiting for them to fix it, I decided to browse around the very, very small Sultan Center and stumbled upon Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo which sounded so interesting (Oxyfusion Technology lawl they’re making stuff up just like Bath & Body Works tend to do). I also grabbed a drink (Snapple) and some gum (Wrigley’s Double Mint Chewing Gum) at the cash register. Solely for those Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies, the whole trip was worth it!
So I was at Souk Sharq on February 5 because I wanted to pick up another one of those Pumice Foot Scrub Thingies* (* not their actual name) from The Body Shop, when I noticed that they were also having some sort of promo going on (Buy 2 Get 1 Free) on certain items. One thing lead to another and I ended up getting:
x2 Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Exfoliator retail for KD 6/500 each
Mineral & Ginger Warming Clay Mask retails for KD 6/000 (ended up being free due to the promo)
Precision Eye Massager retails for KD 7/000
Banana Shampoo (Travel Size) retails for KD 1/000
Banana Conditioner (Travel Size) retails for KD 1/250
x2 No More Rough Stuff Pumice retails for KD 1/500 each
In addition to a whole bunch of Samples
I hit up Sultan Center… while I was starving (big mistake) hence the haulage. You should never go shopping for food when you’re hungry because you end up buying way more than you normally would. Anyhow, I usually take photos for my blog during the daytime, because the lighting is atrocious at nigh (warm, fluorescent, shadows everywhere) but I couldn’t wait for the sun to come up (hungry hungry LuLu) and apparently the Kitchen has the best lighting in the house, ergo photos taken on the Kitchen Island (as shown).
It was towards the end of summer…
I was starving and I was in a spend-y mood (deadly combination). Now, despite the huge haulage (as evident by the photo above), I was actually very, very, very disappointed with the Shuwaikh branch of The Sultan Center! There were bugs having a party on all the exposed fruits and veggies, fridge doors were left open (meaning the frozen food items like burger patties, seafood, and whatever else were just left to melt), every single tub of ice-cream I picked up was sticky (gross!), the seal was broken on a lot of food items, other food items (an entire row of Lay’s Forno Lemon & Black Pepper Baked Potato Chips in the smallest size) had expired months ago (yet still remained on the shelves), the whole place was a mess! Some areas (with the most traffic) were relatively alright but for the most part, the entire place looked like a scene from Mad Max… lol imagine how much larger this haul would’ve been if I hadn’t been grossed out.
I was at Boots (Marina Mall) when I picked up this Shampoo and Conditioner Duo. I believe they were also available in Fresh & Fruity Strawberry, Fresh & Nutty Coconut, but not the Fresh & Tingly Mint & Tea Tree. Regardless, I was only interested in the Fresh & Crisp Apple. You could buy them separately (only the Shampoo or only the Conditioner) or mix and match (for example; Apple Shampoo and Coconut Conditioner) or just do what I did and get a matching pair (Apple Shampoo and Apple Conditioner).
