Catch-up Posts

CATCH-UP POST #4

There hasn’t been a Catch Up post in some weeks because I haven’t been posting regularly every day. I have been posting as much as I could as I’ve been very busy looking for a job and sorting my life out generally. So I thought I would do a collective Catch Up post for all the recent articles I have written.

1- GET OFF YOUR BREAK AND COME TO TELLY ALREADY – In this post I wrote about TV shows I can’t wait to start watching again once they are back from their break. The Big Bang Theory and Downton Abbey made it to the list.

2- A BIT OF SHOPPING #2 – My latest shopping haul that included purchasing a high end foundation, sportswear, lifestyle bit, a trip to Victoria’s Secret and some makeup shopping.

3- BOOK REVIEW ~ IF I STAY and WHERE SHE WENT by GAYLE FORMAN – Did a proper review of Gayle Forman’s If I Stay series.

4- HAIR CARE ~ L’Oreal Elvive Total Repair Hair Mask with Serum Review – Did a complete review and my experience with the product.

5- Fitness Inspiration of the Day #1 ~ Brittne Babe – Shared a fitness babe with y’ll for inspiration.

6- Movie Made Me Read It – One of my favorite posts; I wrote about how some movies inspired me to read their books.

7- AWARD ~ The Very Inspiring Blogger Award – I did a blogger’s award and tagged some of my favorite and well deserving bloggers. ❤

8- NOTD ~ Flashy Pumpkin by Essence – My love for Essence nail polish continues as I share my latest go to nail polish from their summer collection.

9- My Pamper Routine – It was about time I did a pamper routine post and here you will find all the details.

10- Cupcakes @ illy – Diverting my mind back to food, I wrote about my latest eating experience in Muscat.

Have fun going through them all if you haven’t already! 🙂

Love,

Cupcakes @ illy

And I am back with a food post. You can expect quite a lot of such posts in the coming blogs because I have pretty much stopped shopping for products and shifted all my attention back to food and books.

I finally tried illy, a small open area bakery/café in Muscat Grand Mall (MGM) on the second floor. Personally I don’t like completely open café and prefer the privacy a proper shop provides but illy has a very cute and cozy feel to it and I couldn’t resist, ha.

They mainly serve a variety of cakes, cupcakes and coffees too. I tried their Rich Chocolate Cupcake and Oreo Cupcake. Rich Chocolate cupcake had a plain chocolate cake with a gooey chocolate topping. It wasn’t too sweet which I found perfect. I don’t like anything overly sweet. Oreo Cupcake had the same plain chocolate cake and had Oreo cream as topping with half an Oreo as decor. It tasted mild too which I of course found good but I doubt proper Oreo lovers would prefer such a light taste.

The prices were very reasonable and the customer service was good too. I wouldn’t say they were the best cupcakes I ever had and that I would be returning there anytime soon but it’s a good enough place to try. I actually have my eyes on their Banana loaf and might try it the next time around.
