Things 2 get 4m London: Harrods Cocoa Dusted Almonds!

One thing to make sure is in your luggage and make sure you never board the plane from Heathrow without is the Harrods  cocoa dusted almonds! They are so addictive! You would pop in one almond after the other and savor the chocolaty taste… the chocolate is good… the chocolate powder on top gives the almonds a lovely feel on your tongue and it is so very good ❤

Highly recommended on your next trip to London!

I like those glasses!

I’m sick and bored and sitting on my couch this morning… i flip to alwatan TV and there is a man i don’t know talking about some financial thing i don’t understand. I was just about to change the channel when i noticed his glasses…

They are SO COOL! I have never seen such glasses before… they would be perfect for people like me who break their glasses constantly… those are already split in half so they won’t break as much 😀

Have you seen those glasses before?! Would you wear them?!

How did you spend your first salary?!

While posting about the Body Shop Gift Set the other day i remembered how much i loved the Body Shop. Growing up i always vowed to spend my first ever hard earned salary buying everything in the Body Shop 😀

By the time i did actually get my salary, the first thing i bought was a Panasonic CD player from Virgin Megastore, followed by a DVD Home Theatre set which was a bit expensive in 2003 🙂

Whatever i had left must have gone on knicknacks! I must take a look into my old Salary Excel File and see what did i buy with it all… but the moment i started spending that money, it was the most amazing feeling EVER!

How did you spend your first hard earned salary? If you still didn’t get it, what are your grand plans towards spending it 😀

Things 2 do in London: Hermes Kellydoscope in Selfridges!

I saw this huge Hermes Kelly bag in Selfridges and i was intrigued…a apparently it had a side entrance and when you go inside a movie starts about the Kelly bag! Sadly i had to meet a friend for lunch so all i could do is snap those two shots… the next time i was in Selfridges it was gone and i couldn’t go inside 😦

What’s your favorite childhood Costume?

I saw this Toy Story Woody Cowboy Costume the other day and i immediately went back in time to the early 90’s! I have a cousin who was a woody fanatic (yes A. that’s you 😉 ) and he had a similar costume back then that he adored! I cannot look at the woody suit without remembering cousin A who is all grown up now 🙂

Then it hit me… i never ever wore a costume! Growing up in the 80’s meants tons of “classic” birthday parties but not that many costume parties and the only one i remember being invited to was my in 1990 but my mother had just given birth to my baby sister and couldn’t get us costumes in time for the party 😦

Therefore i do not have a favorite costume… but let me ask you, what was your favorite custom/disguise when you were growing up?!

Why don’t we have similar products in Q8!? If you bought it from London the question will be:  do you think it would work in Q8?
