Flats Collection

I’ve always always hated Flats which is funny since I’ve somehow managed to accumulate 16 pairs. Truth be told, aside from the Multi-Color Print Black Slip-Ons all the way on the left and the Cobalt Blue right next to it, and the Black Sneakers all the way on the other end, all the rest (13 pairs) were purchased in one go (around early 2008) from the Kuwaiti equivalent of a $1 Store. They actually cost somewhere around KD 3/000 per pair so I felt like I was getting a good deal and kinda’ went crazy… regardless of the fact that I don’t wear Flats or even like them, for that matter. After this post, I’m going to be getting rid of all of them except for one.

Originel & Essentiel Isla Vanilla Deodorant Roll-On

You guys know I’m always on the lookout for a new favorite deodorant because for some strange reason, the ones I love keep getting discontinued. I love browsing through the personal care aisles at different local co-operatives because you never know what you might find. Honestly, I feel like each co-op has its own hidden gems (stuff you can only find at a certain co-op). When I came across this Roll-On Deodorant in the scent Isla Vanilla from the French Brand Originel & Essential (also known as OE) for KD /780 at the Dahia Abdulla Al-Salem Co-Op, I decided to pick one up, hoping it would be my new fave.

Boots Gourmand Haulage

I hadn’t planned on purchasing anything from Boots (Jabriya) but it was right across the street from my salon and I figured what the hey. I stepped in for a quick peek and as you can see, snagged the cutest little products! By now, you’ll know that I’m quite fond of themes, so once I picked up the Pretty Patisserie Body Butter Trio (which I’d been eyeing initially), I grabbed a few other vanilla-scented products to fit in with the theme… in my head (lawl).

NESCAFÉ® VANILLA Instant Foaming Mix

Vanilla-infused frothy cappuccino creates a perfect café-inspired cup you can sip wherever you are.

I tried getting into drinking Tea (Gschwendner and Teavana) but it’s not just for me. I’ll drink regular ol’ Tea (with a disproportionate amount of sugar poured in there just because I like my Tea extra-sweet) when I get the occasional bout of the flu. Also, I’ll enjoy Lipton Iced Tea Lemon (never the Peach, ugh!) during the Summer, but for some reason it’s almost always out of stock in the entire country (even though the horrid Peach is always available). Aside from that that, I’ll be sticking with my Nescafe Vanilla pseudo-coffee drink, thank you very much.

Palmolive Gourmet Spa

Run! Don’t walk! Run! Run to the nearest Boots Pharmacy, Sultan Center, Carrefour, or local co-op (apparently these are being sold everywhere) to get your hands on Palmolive Gourmet Spa. I cannot say enough good things about this stuff! I’ve already featured the Gourmet Spa Collection earlier and my favorite bar of soap also happens to be from the same brand, Palmolive. With that being said, I wasn’t expecting to be completely blown away by the excellent performance of the products shown, especially not at that price (Shower Cream KD /800 and Soap Bar KD /300)! Obsessed! <3

GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD® TINGLEXFOLIATE TREATMENT

Originally designed as a 10-minute professional ‘facial in a jar’ for behind-the-scenes use in Hollywood’s Entertainment, Music, Fashion & Award industries. YOUTHMUD® provides gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer resulting in immediate camera-ready glowing skin. For Men & Women. Get your Youthful Sexy Glow back in just 10 minutes. YOUTHMUD® for Super Sexy Super Radiant Skin™.

GlamGlow YouthMud was literally the most talked about face mask, ever… and might still very well be. All the well-established magazines kept featuring it. Well-known blogs were constantly mentioning it. Makeup Girls on YouTube were churning out video after video on how to apply it. Everyone was obsessed with GlamGlow Mud Masks! Quite frankly, they made it sound like it was the second coming. Naturally, I was dying to get my hands on a jar of this miraculous product. Sadly, Aramex have confiscated or straight up refused to ship my packages in the past (due to the shipping restrictions) so I wasn’t sure that they’d deliver this little miracle-worker in a jar. So I bided my time and waited… and waited… and waited (very patiently, if I do say so myself… which I do). Finally, this stuff made it to Kuwait and I quickly snatched up a jar of magic (can’t remember the exact amount I shelled out but it felt overpriced) for yours truly from Sephora.
