Carrefour Haul (August)

After Boots (dis) and Bath & Body Works (dis), since I was at the Avenues anyway, I hit up Carrefour for some snackage. Annoyingly, I forgot to include some things in the main photo again, but I did add them below.

Al Mansour Small Haul (April)

It wouldn’t be a “proper” visit to the Perfume & Makeup Exhibition if I didn’t make a quick stop at the Al Mansour booth, now would it?

This time, I picked up a few Nail Polishes (mostly creme shades, with the exception of a single glittery shade) for KD 1/500 a pop and some Liners in neon shades for KD 2 each and lastly, a KD 5 repurchase of my beloved Riffi Exfoliating Loofah Massage Strap (in-depth review here)! Instead of paying KD 15 I ended up paying KD 12 because of the discount during the Perfume & Makeup Exhibition.

My Story: Foot Care

Sand-16

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).

My Story: Foundation, Tinted Moisturizers, and BB Creams

foundation

Hello luvs,

It’s been awhile since I last blogged but I was adjusting to married life, decorating our new place, getting to know my new family and so on but that hasn’t stopped me from trying out new makeup products, reviewing the stuff I already had, and jotting down notes in my lil notebook for future blog posts. Now if only I can find the time (read: motivation) to transfer all that to my blog. First of all, I know I’ve been promising to do a giveaway but to be completely honest, I’m not sure how many people actually read my blog. What if I have a giveaway and nobody enters? That would be so embarrassing which is what’s holding me back. I’ve figured out the solution. Leave a comment below if you want me to have a giveaway but if nobody comments, instead of the winner of the giveaway getting the “prize(s)”, I’ll just give them to a family member or friend. Hope that sounds fair.
