US Bath & Body Works New Year Body Lotion Haul

These are the Body Lotions I purchased in my B&BW New Year Haul (here).

4 were Shower Gels that I’d purchased earlier and enjoyed enough to repurchase as Body Lotions, while 2 were complete blind-buys, making a total of 6 Body Lotions (as shown). Truthfully, I would’ve loved to have gotten my hands on Little Black Party Dress but it was sold out.

Normally, I wouldn’t buy this many Body Lotions all in one go… except these babies had been reduced to around $3 a pop (with the exception of Wild Strawberry which cost $6.25). They were basically 1 Kuwaiti Dinar each! It was too good of a deal to pass up!

With that being said, I’m not crazy enough to have them all open at once. I’m only going to be using one at a time and completely finishing it up, before moving on to the next one.

Also, all of them arrived sealed, which is what I’ve come to expect from the U.S. B&BW (unlike our local B&BW lol).

US Bath & Body Works New Year Jar Candle Haul

These are the Jar Candles I purchased in my B&BW New Year Haul (here).

After my last haulage of Single Wick Candles (here), I definitely didn’t need any more Jar Candles. Heck, I didn’t need any more Candles in general. However, things that smell good, just bring me such joy!

I really had my heart set on Bluberry Pie. Plus, there was a decent deal on Single Wick Candles (Jar Candles). Normally, Jar Candles retail for $14.50 but there was a Mix & Match: 2/$20 deal on them.

I also ordered a 3-Wick Candle in the scent Citrus Crystals (reduced from $24.50 to to $12.25) which I’d previously purchased during Candle Day (here), but I suppose they ran out because it never arrived.

Super stoked I managed to snag these two though! Aside from the cool black lids, the packaging was pretty blah, but I was more interested in the scents. I mean, how yummy did they sound?

US Bath & Body Works New Year Haul

Honestly I wasn’t planning on ordering more Bath & Body Works stuff online anymore, but the U.S. B&BW had some crazy good deals going on and I’m only human after all.

Unfortunately, some of the things I ordered were missing (such as the Exfoliating Lip Scrub in the scent/flavor Mint Drop which had been reduced to $4.25), but that’s my fault for waiting until literally the last day of the year to place my order lol

Takis Destroyed My Teeth (chatty post)

The title pretty much says it all. I discovered a newfound love for Takis, binged on the stuff (typical LuLu) and ended up ruining my teeth lol

It took several visits to “fix” the issue, starting from November 2019 up until April 2020 and the issue still hasn’t been resolved. Needless to say, I had to swear off Takis.

DevaCurl and Hair Loss (Warning Graphic Pictures)

I was on a full on Hair Care kick, around June of last year and purchased a ton of hair stuff online from Nordstrom (haulage here) including products from the brand DevaCurl which was “Curly Girl Method Approved”!

Shortly after, as if on cue, there was a scandal and a following lawsuit involving the brand. Apparently, DevaCurl products (allegedly) caused hair loss and hair damage and other hair-related issues.

Thankfully, I hadn’t gotten around to using any of the travel-sized products in the DevaCurl Super Curly Curls On The Go Kit.

Unfortunately though, I did get around to using the DevaCurl Wave Maker Touchable Texture Whip.

Bath and Body Works 2019 Final Mini Haul

Like I said in my 1st Bath & Body Works Candle Haul from waaaay back in 2012 (here), I’m a hardcore scented-candle aficionado!

Shoofha – Daffy feat. Flipperachi

I don’t particularly care for Arab Music because it all sounds the same to me. Rarely, if ever, am I moved by Arabic Music and don’t even get me started on the Music Videos that go along with those Arabic Songs. They’re just so… cheesy. The same goes for Indian Music.

Worst of all, they blatantly steal copy popular Western Songs (from the actual Music down to the plot-line of the Music Video). I’m well aware of the reason behind this specific formula, but it just doesn’t appeal to me. As such, I don’t watch/listen to Arabic/Indian Music.

Taken from my earlier review of an Indian Song (here), but strongly applies to this Arabic Song as well.

I first heard Shoofha back in December 2019 and started noticing it popping up everywhere after that. I say everywhere, but it was mostly in cars. My friends would have it playing in their cars, whenever they picked me up. I’ll see others lip-synching to it on Snapchat. It’s played at all the little kids’ birthday parties (my friends are all married with kids). Basically, it’s like the entire country of Kuwait decided unanimously to adopt Shoofha as their unofficial anthem.
