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.

Between my brother and his wife’s weekly visits to the local co-op, and my online orders from taw9eel.com (My Pantry), we were all set on groceries.

So, this haul was mostly snackage (stuff I couldn’t find online) and personal care stuff (face wash, cotton pads, etc…)

The Body Shop BOGO Haul (Sept 2020)

After hitting up Debenhams (here) and Bath & Body Works (here), I hotfooted it to The Body Shop (across from Aldo), as my last stop, before exiting the mall and heading towards Sultan Center.

I was in desperate need of the Reviving Pumice Foot Scrub. I wasn’t running low on the stuff… I’d already run out!

This stuff was a forever-favorite and therefore a constant repurchase (here)!

Using this stuff on my feet felt amazing! I’m not one for massages, but this stuff was practically a foot massage in a jar! It felt so good! That’s why it was my absolute favorite!

Bath and Body Works Mini BOGO Haul (Sept 2020)

Next, I hit up Bath & Body Works which was nestled between Victoria’s Secret and MAC, working my way from the far left of the mall (Debenhams). I did take a quick lap around Boots. I also noticed that they’d opened up a Nyx which I had to visit as well.

Bath & Body Works were having a Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) promo going on at the time, but I couldn’t find any interesting scents.

Eventually, I settled on getting Travel-Size Shower Gels in the scents Gingham (because it was their feature scent) and Perfect Peony (because it listed vanilla sandalwood in the notes). They both ended up being too floral for me.

Normally, the Travel-Size Shower Gels retail for KD 2/750 each, but I payed just that for both.

Debenhams Haul (Sept 2020)

On September 22 2020, I wanted to go to Sultan Center. I figured since I was heading to Souq Sharq anyway, I might as well hit up the mall first.

Starting from all the way to the right of the mall, I took a quick lap around Debenhams (even though I’ve sworn against it, on account of the vultures) and ended up getting a few things.

High Heel Wood Sandals

Faith Black Leather Sandals
Faith Tan Leather Sandals
Michael Kors Brown Leather Sandals

Back in the day, we didn’t have as many malls and stores in Kuwait (less options). So, I was beyond excited when a cute lil store that I’d read about in my UK-edition magazines opened up in Souq Sharq (I believe it used to be where Boots is currently located) called Faith. I wanna’ say this was back in the early 2000’s lol The store has since been replaced, but they’ve got a corner in Debenhams dedicated solely (heehee) to footwear by the brand Faith.

From the store when it was open, I purchased a cute pair of lemon thong kitten heel sandals (to pair with a tennis skirt and polo shirt) which I’ve since given away. I also purchased a sexy pair of black leather sandals (previously mentioned here) and tan leather sandals. I became equally obsessed with both the black and tan sandals!

In any case, once the tan sandals started looking too ratty, I decided to go online (amazon.com) and purchase a sorta’ similar pair, which happened to be by the brand Michael Kors (as shown) but I never fell in love with them.

Just like with my Handbags (in-depth chit-chat here), I tend to enjoy Shoes with a somewhat less common texture or look.

Sultan Center Small Personal Care Haul

Can’t very well go to Souq Sharq without making a quick stop at Sultan Center, now can I?

Since I inhaled the snackage, I’ve only got the Personal Care items to show ya’. I picked up some Shampoo (looked new) and my favorite Conditioner and my favorite Makeup Remover and some Toothpaste.

Not Shown:
Takis Fuego (previously purchased here)
Hershey’s Gold (previously purchased here)
Cebu Dried Mango Pineapple Balls (just no)

Zara Pebbled Leather Trapeze Bags

These are the twin Zara Trapeze Bags from the Trafaluc Collection that I mentioned in My Story: Handbags post (dis). I purchased them along with the Zara Black Peony Eau de Parfum (dis) from the Souq Sharq branch of Zara around 2013, I believe.

I clocked it in Black (my go to) and Tan (which I was slowly warming up to, at the time) and couldn’t decide between the two, so I got both.

This thing was huge! I’m talkin’, fill it up with junk (full size Perfume, full size Body Lotion, Large Notebook to jot down stuff, Cardigan for when it gets chilly, Makeup Bag for “on-the-go touch-ups”, change of Shoes for when Heels start to hurt, pair of jammies for sleepovers, iPad/Laptop or both, Hair Dryer, etc…) and add a large fluffy Towel on top huge! My guy friends would repeatedly ask me how was I was carrying this thing around, because it was pretty heavy, but to be fair, I did fill it up with, well, everything lol

Other than the main compartment being pretty huge, it also had a zippered pocket for smaller knick-knacks that I didn’t want to get lost in the the larger main compartment. Right across the zippered pocket were some other flat pockets in different sizes (for Pens and Lipgloss and sometimes a Makeup Brush).

The outside consisted of pebbled leather, while the inside consisted of… I wanna say canvas? Other than the random Pink Tab, the inside was mostly Beige. The hardware was more of a non-reflective tarnished Gold. These Trapeze Bags came with Top Handles, but also nice and long adjustable straps, which was super convenient! It meant I could carry this thing by the Handles or loop it around my shoulder as a Cross-Body Bag!

Unfortunately, these aren’t the most flattering pictures ever, but I tried lol

Red Herring Green Pebbled Leather Hobo Bag

A moment of silence for the Red Herring Green Pebbled Leather Hobo Bag, RIP

This was the Green Pebbled Leather Bag I referenced in My Story: Handbags post (dis). I thought I’d gotten rid of it, but I guess not. I found it in one of the boxes, and as I was smoothing it out (it was all smushed), it literally started disintegrating in my hands lol To be fair, I got this thing around March, either 2009 or 2010 (from Debenhams at Souq Sharq, while on a lunch date with my cousin).
