US Bath and Body Works Jar Candles

From my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Haul (here)

Jar Candles were reduced from $14.50 (KD 4/400) to $8 (KD 2/400) each

According to the reviews, Jar Candles packed quite a punch and could scent up a spacious room within minutes! I was a bit skeptical, but decided to see for myself, especially since these babies were on sale.

You guys, the reviews were not wrong! For whatever reason, these little things were far superior to their much larger counterparts! I mean, I haven’t actually burned any of them yet, but even on cold throw, some of these were straight up beast-mode!

US Bath and Body Works Shower Gels and Jar Candles

I love things that smell great! I love ’em! I just do!

Perfumes and Body Mists and Hair Mists and Dry Shampoo and other Hair Products and Room Scents and Car Fragrances and Candles and Shower Gels and Deodorants and Body Lotions and Hand Soaps and Bar Soaps and Antibacterial Hand Sanitizers and Skincare and Lipgloss and heck, even Fabric Softener! If it’s scented, I’m so down!

I’ve always enjoyed scented stuff (scratch’n’sniff stickers anyone?), but now, it’s grown into a full-blown obsession…

So, even though I’d just placed my first US Bath & Body Works Online Order only days before, on November 30 (haulage here), I went ahead and placed my second US Bath & Body Works Online Order on December 5.

Keep in mind that it takes anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 weeks for my online orders to ship from the country of origin (U.S.) to my country (Kuwait), queued up to get cleared by customs and then finally, delivered to my doorstep. So at the time of my second order, my first order hadn’t even been shipped.

I got mostly Shower Gels (x12) and Jar Candles (x17) and some travel size stuff (x3).

My justification was that I wouldn’t be able to order this stuff online anymore, once the weather got warmer. I mean I could, but they’d probably arrived damaged from the heat. Also, all through December, there were new deals on the daily! Not to mention 20% Off the entire order and another 20% Off Coupon Code that arrived with my order!

ColourPop 30% Off Sitewide Haul

Every year, I place an order with ColourPop during Black Friday/Cyber Monday (we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in my country, so the two are pretty interchangeable for me and I keep mixing them up lol).

I’d already have a mental list of stuff that I’d been lusting after, from all their many releases throughout the year and during Black Friday/Cyber Monday they’d usually have a 30% Off Sitewide, which makes it the perfect time to purchase those things from my list!

In fact, I’ve been ordering from ColourPop during every Black Friday/Cyber Monday consecutively since 2016!

I picked up 5 Pressed Powder Shadow Palettes (9-pan) granted one was out of stock as a single (Going Coconuts) and had to be purchased as a bundle that came with 2 Eyeliners (Créme de Coco Set) and another was part of the 3pc Ulta Exclusive (Night Owl).

Unlike their previous bundles and sets where I usually owned at least one of the shades, since I hadn’t purchased from ColourPop in a while, there was no chance of me getting a repeat product (the shades were all new to me), meaning I could finally indulge!

I picked up 3 of those Midnight Masquerade Bundles from yet another Disney Designer Collection and a Blush + Lite Stix Duo (In a Twitter) from the Bye Bye Birdie Collection and a Just a Tint Lip Duo (Coconut Kiss) from the Coconut Collection and 2 Faux False Lash Bundles (3pc each) one from the Bye Bye Birdie Collection and another from I dunno’ lol

I also got a Tinted Moisturizer and Concealer from their new Pretty Fresh range and stocked up on some Brow Stuff and Tools including a Dual Ended Brow Brush and a Sharpener. Lastly, I got 2 Lippie Pencils and an Ultra Matte Lip and an Ultra Glossy Lip.

That said, most of them could be purchased individually. I was just saving $$ by buying them as a bundle.

The prices for everything will be listed below (all the way at the bottom of this post).

Not gonna’ lie, I was a bit disappointed by the fact that even though I purchased them as sets and bundles, most of the items arrived in separate packaging (like they normally would if you purchased them individually).

Only Coconut Kiss and In a Twitter and the Disney Midnight Masquerade Bundles arrived as actual sets.

Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper – Shallow

Never saw the movie and absolutely zero interest in watching it…

However, last night I heard Bryan Callen butchering this song on The Fighter and The Kid (podcast he co-hosts with Brenden Schaub) and despite myself, was kinda’ curious.

So, I looked it up on YouTube and literally started crying (I’m talking full on crying) as soon as the song began playing! It was instant! Start video. Ensue tears. Needless to say, I’m seriously feeling this song at the moment!

I used to like Gaga’s music when she coming up, but sorta’… outgrew her.

I thought Bradley Cooper was pretty funny in the Hangover movies, but fell in love with him after the movie Limitless.

Coincidentally, Bryan Callen was also in one of the Hangover movies. More recently, when I saw Joker a few months ago at the movies, I clocked Bryan Callen as one of the clowns. Not gonna’ lie, I got pretty excited and pointed him about, but once again, none of my people had a clue what I was talking about (I need new people. People who watch/listen to Podcasts at the very least).

Anyways, Shallow is a beautiful song and I definitely recommend giving it a listen!

1st Morphe Makeup Brush Haul

On December 1st, I placed my first online order with Morphe!

I used to eye up their eyeshadows, back when they were just $2 each, but never actually ordered anything from them. I saw them grow and grow as a company, but wasn’t really tempted to purchase anything… until they released the Morphe X Brittany Bear 360 Nose Contour Collection.

However, rather than purchase it for full price, I decided to patiently wait for a sale or some sort of promo. At the time of my order, they had a 25% Off coupon code, which I used. Since this was my first time ordering from them, I decided to pick up a few (well, just the two) Makeup Items, while the rest were all Makeup Brushes (x20 individual ones) that I’d been lusting after.

The layout of their site was easy to navigate, had realistic photos that you could zoom in on and helpful reviews left by other customers.

The subtotal of my order was $114 with free shipping, plus an additional $10.16 for tax adding up to $124.16 in total.

Aside from the box that they came in getting a bit banged up, everything arrived safely intact.

Bronde Moment

Eyeshadow – ColourPop Paradox Super Shock Shadow (haulage here)
Lipstick – ColourPop Ziggie Lippie Stix (haulage here)
Sunglasses – Tom Ford Black Large Cat Eye Sunglasses
Handbag – Milano Padlock Black Leather Cross-Body Micro Bag
Top – Mango Cherry Flowy Striped Dress (haulage here)
Top – Forever 21 White Henry David Thoreau Truth T-Shirt
Jeans – H&M Dark Denim Blue Super-Stretch Treggings (haulage here)
Shoes – Karmaloop Black Studded Wedge Sneakers

I figured since I’d just recently posted photos of my hair a month after that horrible dye job (dis), why not post photos the day after?

Obviously, I’d seen my hair after that woman had destroyed it, but that was during night-time and in artificial lighting. The morning after, outdoors and in natural sunlight, I took one look at my hair color and let out a colorful stream of expletives. Not to beat a dead horse, but I payed a lot of money for dry and frizzy hair (my hair is still mad at me since that incident) and worst of all, that looked nothing like the ashy-blonde that I’d asked for (and shown them pictures of, from their own Instagram account lol)

It might sound like I might be exaggerating for effect, so I figure a picture is worth a thousand words ergo here ya’ go! That said, it’s not really that big of a deal. It’s just hair. I’m glad I went through with it anyway, because it confirmed the fact that as I’m getting older, I much prefer darker hair on myself.
