Sultan Center Haulage (Souq Sharq) (Sept 2020)

After hitting up Debenhams (here) and Bath & Body Works (here) and The Body Shop (here), I finally made it to Sultan Center.

It might not be everyone’s cup of Tea Dairy Drink, for example my older sister isn’t a huge fan of Pinkberry and as such, thinks this stuff is horrible but I personally love it!
