Lucifer

For whatever reason, Netflix has been seriously pushing Lucifer. I’ve heard of it before, and noticed it being referenced in several places, but it seemed a bit… corny. However, since it kept popping up all over my Netflix queue, I decided to give it a chance. As expected, it was very corny, but once the cast grew on you, became surprisingly enjoyable! There was nothing remotely scary about the show. Lucifer was portrayed as being more “naughty” rather than straight up evil. He was meant to be charming, but to me, came off as being more obnoxious (like a Kuwaity Boy lol).

Every episode, the cops got a new case to solve… with the help of Lucifer, who had apparently gotten bored of Hell and bounced. Just like Blacklist and Sherlock, watching them solve case after case tends to get… boring. However, there’s also a “will they, won’t they” thing going on with Lucifer and one of the Detectives. That doesn’t stop Lucifer from sleeping around with every other woman (sometimes several at a time) and the occasional man. In fact, Lucifer owns a Night Club and lives right above it. Every now and then, he’ll also perform at said Night Club (he sang a rendition of Jimi Hendrix – All Along The Watchtower) sometimes to an audience, sometimes not. The cast includes a sprinkle of interesting characters including Kevin Alejandro (whom I’d classify as eye-candy, if only his character wasn’t such a push-over) and my beloved Tricia Helfer (who will forever be Six to me).

All in all, it was an easy, mindless and enjoyable watch (nothing stressful)! I zipped through all four seasons (I let it play in the background) amidst some spirited spring cleaning!

Nordstrom April Fragrance Haul

While browsing through the New Arrivals section up on Nordstrom, I spotted an exciting new version of my beloved Light Blue called Light Blue Sun. It listed Coconut Water (which I adore in most forms) in the fragrance notes! I mean…c’mon, Light Blue + Coconut Water just sounded awesome! So, despite my luck (or lack-thereof) with purchasing perfumes before actually smelling them, this was yet another blind-buy lol Since I was going to have to pay extortionate shipping fees regardless, I figured I might as well purchase a few more items, to even out the shipping cost (I mathed).

I picked up something from the Too Faced collab with Erika Jayne and to qualify for the Too Faced Gift with Purchase also purchased a Too Faced Mascara (travel size). Lastly, since I’d actually sampled Mon Paris earlier (here) and over time, grew to enjoy the scent, I sprung for the YSL Mon Paris Eau de Parfum Set (3oz/90mL + 1oz/30mL).

Since the total for everything was more than $100 I ended up qualifying for both the April Skincare Sample Pack (here) and April Fragrance Sample Pack (here) and the April Bonus Gift (here) and got to pick out 3 samples for free.

– Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Sun Eau de Toilette (Limited Edition)
– Too Faced x Erika Jayne Pat The Pu$$ Kissable Body Shimmer (Limited Edition)
– Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (travel size)
– Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris Eau de Parfum Set

Deliveroo

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!) ♥

Nordstrom Fragrance Sample Pack (April)

Choose a Free Gift with Your $85 Women’s or Men’s Fragrance Purchase. During our Scent Event, try samples from Jo Malone, Atelier Cologne, Voluspa and more. Promo code (PINK or YELLOW) required. Plus, when you spend $100, you’ll also get a “bonus” gift.

Nordstrom were having yet another Scent Event and giving away x2 Fragrance Sample Packs (your choice of Yellow or Pink, each with different fragrance samples) during the month of April. I’ll list everything included in both packs below. Both packs included several items that I already own, but as you can see, I decided to go with the Yellow mainly because the adorable, itty-bitty Yellow Cosmetics Bag looked more appealing to me lol I’ll also be listing all the notes below (if I can find them) for everything that came with the Yellow Pack. Lastly, since I spent well over $100 I also qualified for the “bonus” gift which was a Nest Grapefruit Reed Diffuser!

Farewell, De Rossi

I mean… is it even Roma without De Rossi and Totti?

Their friendship over the years was incredibly endearing! Their love and loyalty to Roma even more so!

Once again, I cried and cried while watching Totti and De Rossi and Ranieri tearing up last night.

Goodbye, De Rossi… Goodbye, Gladiator of Rome!

Nordstrom Skincare Sample Pack (April)

Free 16pc Natural Beauty Gift with Purchase (a $188 Value) with any $125 Beauty or Fragrance Purchase

I contacted Nordstrom through their Live Chat App (up on their website) to double check something on a recent order (couldn’t remember if I’d used the code or not, but turns out that I did), when I was informed that I also qualified for the Natural Skincare Sample Pack, before they promptly sent it over. They had this whole Natural Beauty Event (eco-friendly, vegan, etc…) going on during the month of April and the Natural Skincare Sample Pack (as shown) was the Gift with Purchase during that month.

I’d like to say it was “free”, but they sent it over separately, which meant I had to pay extortionate shipping charges (from my U.S. Aramex mailbox to Kuwait) for one measly pack… of samples lol I understand that it’s not possible for them to group all the items into a single shipment, but I sure wish it was! To add insult to injury, everything arrived sopping wet (something had spilled in transit). It was my first real “incident” with Nordstrom, whom my experience with, has been nothing but perfect, up to this point. That said, there was a bunch of cool stuff in the Natural Skincare Sample Pack!
