I’ve tasted Pineapple Juice from most of the available brands in the country and the winner (by far) is the one from Sunkist! It’s been my favorite drink of choice, I wanna’ say… since this past March.
Ever since I could first remember, I’ve always suffered (the struggle lol) from severe heartburn. I’d feel a fire in my chest and try to ignore it… until I couldn’t… and throw up.
That’s basically the gist of this entire post. If you can’t handle it, feel free to stop reading at this point.
It only took about ten years (not even joking), but the local Bath&Body Works website is finally up and running!
Rather than running around from branch to branch; triple-checking to see if the latest collection has been released in Kuwait yet, or hunting down a particularly hard-to-find Candle, or whatever, I can just order online now and have the stuff delivered straight to my home!
Yes, they don’t have coupons and stuff like they do in the U.S. and yes, the collections we get are still… limited (it’s the same stock, after all), but give them another ten years or so and they’ll get there, eventually (maybe) lol
Your favourite restaurants and takeaways, delivered straight to your door
I was craving a Cheeseburger from Five Guys but didn’t feel like braving the overcrowded streets during Ramadan. Since neither Talabat nor Carriage delivered Five Guys, I decided to finally give Deliveroo a shot (shout out to my girl Sonia for recommending Deliveroo)!
I ordered a Little CheeseBurger (with the works) which cost KD 2/500 and Little Fries which cost KD 1/250. The total for my order was KD 3/750. It was a little bit late, but I didn’t even notice until I got this e-mail… only an hour later!
Next time you order, it’s on us
We’re sorry your order was late – here’s KD 3.750 towards your next one.
Great service matters to us, so we want to say sorry and give you KD 3.750 credit towards your next order. Just follow the link below to add the credit to your account. It will be automatically added when you place your next order and is available for the next 14 days.
Wow! I’ve only ever heard of these things happening and mainly these stories take place abroad (if your pizza is late, it ends up being free, etc…), but never actually experienced it for myself… until now! I’ve shared my disdain for local take-out joints years ago (Nom Nom) and more recently my absolute nightmare of an experience with Carriage (Carriage Sucks!), but that’s all I’ve ever known. It’s unfortunate, but I’ve gotten used to placing and order via Carriage only to have it arrive about a week later and usually missing a few items to boot.
As such, I honestly didn’t even notice that my order with Deliveroo was a little late (because Carriage tends to be very, very, very late), up until they e-mailed me, to not only apologize, but also to give me credit towards me next order (which was the total amount of my “late” order)!
So professional! I mean… is this even Kuwait? Is this even real life? Needless to say, I was not only impressed by Deliveroo, but veritably blown away and will definite, definitely be ordering with them in the future (in fact, I already used up the credit on another order from Five Guys and have been ordering with them on and off throughout Ramadan! btw their Coffee Shake is ah-maze!) ♥
I kept putting it off, until I could put it off no longer lol 6 months or so later, I finally went and got my roots “touched up”.
I was actually more diligent about it, back when I was younger. Now that I’m older, it’s not really that high on my list of priorities lol However, enough was enough. As you can see, my hair looked horrible (the brassiness wasn’t doing me any favors either) so I decided to just get on with it.
At this point, everyone knows or at least should know of Carriage. Chances are you’ve probably spotted their delivery guys (sporting a t-shirt with the Carriage logo) or even seen them on those ubiquitous bikes (with a bright orange box on the back) out and about in Kuwait. No joke, once I counted no less than 5 different delivery dudes roaming around, while having dinner with a friend at one of the restaurants at the JACC/Opera House/Fountain!
After spending forever trying to get into my personal Instagram account (I totally forgot my password, which just goes to show how often I actually use the app lawl) to frantically hunt down something appropriate to wear during Ramadan, I kept on receiving those annoying notifications from Instagram on my phone afterwards. I spent weeks ignoring them, but on July 12, I’d finally had enough and tried to disable the notifications through the app itself, which is when an ad for Belleza and more Salon & Spa popped up. I clicked the ad (which took me to their insta account) and immediately my eyes were drawn to the photo shown below.
Translation: Ammonia-free Dye and Bleach… Extra Strength Protection used with every Hair Coloring Session… so the hair does not get damaged and the color remains… vibrant and rich with a beautiful shine to make the hair appear healthy and fresh
As soon as I spotted that gorgeous ash-blonde color (in the After photo) I was obsessed! Seeing as how I’d just chopped off all my hair (pics, here), I was less hesitant about messing with it. Plus, they straight up advertised “ammonia-free dye” and “extra-strength protection”. It seemed legit. Being the impulsive creature that I am, I quickly called them up and made an appointment (30 mins from time of call) to dye my hair!
