Bloomingdale’s Kuwait to Bring Menswear

Post by Mark

According to a contact of mine at Bloomingdale’s, the Kuwait branch might eventually start carrying menswear at their store in 360 Mall. Currently, they only sell womenswear but starting soon they’re going to start selling some men’s accessories as well. Next month they’re also going to bring their exclusive collection by Les Benajmins to Kuwait.

I personally think they should bring menswear and I never understood why they didn’t have it initially at launch. Right now I seem to be spending all my money at Allsaints which I don’t mind, but I’m also starting to look like an Allsaints billboard. So having more options works for me.

Ice Skating Rink Arcade

Someone tagged me on this short video the other day that shows parts of the ice skating rink arcade area during the early 90s. If you used to hang out at the ice skating rink back then like I did, then you’ll appreciate this.

Where to Find Swarovski Crystals in Kuwait

Post by Mark

On more than one occasion I’ve been asked if I know a place that sells Swarovski crystals, usually by girls who might have had a crystal element fall off their shoe, purse or some other kind of accessory. I’ve previously sent them to Barakat but because they don’t have that big of a collection of elements, the girls usually don’t find what they’re looking for.

Yesterday I was heading from my gym to MEAT by foot and spotted this small place with jars on display in the window. I was curious so I got closer but I still couldn’t really tell what was inside the jars, so I walked into the shop to get a closer look. Turns out the shop was covered in these jars and inside each one were different kinds of Swarovski crystals. It was just a shop dedicated to selling Swarovski crystals.

So if you ever need any crystals to replace ones that have fallen off, you probably won’t find a place in Kuwait with a larger collection than this place. The shop is located behind Crystal Tower in Kuwait City [Google Maps] and their phone number is 22419172.

What Earthquake?

Post by Mark

Am I the only one in Kuwait who didn’t feel the earthquake. A short while ago my phone and twitter blew up asking me if I had felt the earthquake. I didn’t! I was shopping with a friend at Wholesome Foods when the earthquake hit and neither me nor my friend felt anything. So weird, I feel like I’ve totally missed out!
