I wasn’t planning on purchasing more stuff from H&M so soon after my previous haul (here).
However, some of this stuff (bottom of this post) went on sale.
They were having a sale and it had been a minute since my previous haul, so on Nov 12 2020, I placed another online order with our local Bath & Body Works store.
Aside from the fact that I wanted to pick up a few more things for myself, I was horrified to find that Mera (my friend at the time, but we have since parted ways) was using expired products.
“I don’t believe in expiration dates”, was a direct quote from her.
It’s not that she didn’t have the means. She just genuinely didn’t believe in expiry dates. Also, she was a bit stingy (okay, very stingy) with her money.
Worse still, her stuff (shower gels, lotions, makeup, hair stuff) had expired years ago and she was still completely fine with using them.
Not on my watch! No, sir!
In this haul, I picked up some Shower Gels for her (well, just the two) and demanded she get rid of her expired Shower Gels, immediately.
– Shower Gels were reduced from 5/500 to KD 1/750
– PocketBac Holders retail for KD 2/750
Another month, another H&M haul.
I loved the Green Parka that I’d gotten earlier so much (here) that I just had to get it in other colors!
While I was at it, I picked up some more Jeans, a few T-Shirts and a few Shirts.
I also got several Jumpers and two adorable Scarves for Winter.
All in all, yet another excellent haul from H&M!
I’ve been through a lot in my life – lots of ups and lots of downs – but MY GOD 2021 was the worst year of my life!
Cook had traveled to India, promising to come back in January (which he didn’t and totally ditched us lol) and I had officially moved out of my apartment and into the guest rooms (pics here).
I say rooms (plural), because one room was for my makeup and clothes and whatnot, while the other was for my pc and where I slept.
Between the painter and carpenter and electrician, not to mention having to cook my own meals, I had almost no time for much else.
Rather than dig out my Winter Clothes from storage (everything was stuffed in boxes, stacked on top of each other, in the basement), I figured I’d just place an order with H&M with whatever was left of my money.
As it turns out, this was one of my most favorite hauls from H&M! It was very Winter-themed and focused mostly on Faux Leather and I found so many great pieces! ♥
Every single one of my friends had a Balmain T-Shirt and despite myself, I was starting to feel left out.
A quick google searched turned up a UK website called Matches Fashion that sold designer brands.
It didn’t make sense to pay crazy shipping fees just for one expensive t-shirt, so I added a pair of expensive jeans lol and on October 18 placed my first order with them.
On September 28, after hitting up Etude House (haulage here), Mera and I walked over to Nyx.
While browsing in-store, we got the call telling us our table was ready, so we payed for our stuff and headed to Trapani for our dinner reservation (pics of us here).
Aside from my health issues, we were supposed to wear a mask (pandemic rules), so I kinda’ didn’t see the point in getting a bunch of makeup. That’s why my haul was more of a mini haul.
On September 28, Mera came over and brought lunch. Afterwards, I got dressed in my H&M Grey Mom Jeans (hauled here) and we went to The Avenues.
We were going to check out the new Hilton Garden Inn (which had just opened up at the time), because we were thinking of taking the kids and spending the night there. We wanted to pretend we were traveling abroad (because traveling for fun wasn’t a thing anymore, on account of the pandemic).
The rooms were pretty basic and the view was abysmal (you can see the room and what I was wearing, here) so we opted out. Instead, I suggested we make dinner reservation at Trapani, one of my favorite restaurants in Kuwait.
While we waited for them to call us for our reservation, we browsed around the mall. We hit up Boots (tiny store), but didn’t get anything from there. Then we went to Etude House, which I knew had opened up some time ago, but had never gotten a chance to visit.
The place looked like it had been ransacked! Shelves were half-empty. Everything had been picked over. Just what exactly had happened here? Undeterred, I managed to snag a few items.
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…)
