Like I said in a previous post (Takis Destroyed My Teeth), on March 7, I hit up the Hawally branch of Sultan Center (Promenade Mall) on my way back home from the dentist.
Since it had been a while since I was last out in public (remember, I’d been self-isolating way before the official lock-down because… me), I couldn’t resist popping by Boots for a quickie!
They actually had a ton of new and interesting things since the last time I’d been there (around two years ago), but what with the ‘rona going around, I figured I’d keep the haulage to a minimum.
I just wanted to repurchase my favorite Black Eyeliner Pencil (the one I use was down to a nub), but while at the Bourjois Booth, I clocked a cute looking Mascara and grabbed it too (as a lil treat for going through the unpleasantness of the whole root canal thing).
Plus, Ramadan was coming up and like most local households, it was the time of the year when our entire household (parents, siblings, siblings’ children) would dress up and sit down together for a meal.
Everyone in our household usually put in a little extra effort in the way they dressed during Ramadan, meaning I’d probably be in the mood to play around with my Makeup at least a handful of days during that month. So, it was nice to know I had a fresh tube of Mascara and Eyeliner at the ready.
That said, I wasn’t going out (aside from the occasional visit to the Hospital and Sultan Center straight afterwards), which meant I definitely didn’t need to buy more Makeup, but this purchase was more… symbolic.
