During my visit to Bath and Body Works (here), I picked up a handful of really fun stuff (x2 Zodiac Candles and x2 deliciously-scented shower stuff and x2 pocketbacs with funny-punny names) all of which had been significantly reduced (much more reasonable price)!
For centuries, a natural water spring has been running at the heart of the Provence mountains, collecting rich minerals and rising up at the Réotier Spring. Thanks to its high calcium content, this incredible water helps skin maintain its hydration barrier and retain moisture. L’Occitane has paired this powerful Provence water with Hyaluronic Acid in an ultra-hydrating skin care range, for healthy-looking skin.
Discover our NEW thirst-quenching, water-based Aqua Réotier Collection, uniquely formulated with 3 powerful ingredients: Hyaluronic Acid, Glycerin, and calcium-rich Réotier Spring Water derived from the mountains of Provence.
I was literally bouncing in place with excitement when I spotted the water-based Aqua Réotier Collection! This collection (the one I hinted at, towards the very end of my previous L’Occitane Samplage post) was the whole reason I was practically stalking L’Occitane every other day! The Aqua Reotier Collection finally arrived to Kuwait (and it only took about… a year since it was released worldwide lol)!
Let’s just get this out of the way first. How pretty is the packaging and the presentation (I mean, that ring of water is absolutely stunning)! Everything is all blue and transparent and just very, very pleasant to look at! And don’t even get me started on those micro-bubbles (so cute, I die!) in some of the products! Okay, now that that’s out of the way…
First chance I got, I went back to exchange the White V-Neck Frilled Blouse (purchased earlier, here) for a smaller size. While there, I spotted a few more pieces and decided to try them on (spur of the moment thing) and ended up with a few duds. I had to go back (twice) to get them hemmed and everything. Even more annoying was the fact that literally after this haul, I got one of those mass texts from H&M announcing they had Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) promo going on and a week after that there was a 70% off Sale -_-
Nesquik Chocolate Flavoured Cereal
x2 Coco Mojo Pure Coconut Water
So I’ve been on the hunt for Coco Mojo Pure Coconut Water ever since I randomly chose a can of the stuff at Sultan Center (Salmiya) and promptly fell in love (here)! Unfortunately, I could never find the stuff at the Souq Sharq branch of Sultan Center, which frankly, is more accessible to me (since I don’t enjoy the traffic jams on my to Salmiya). I figured the only way I could ever find the stuff was to go back to where I originally bought it, the Salmiya branch. Sadly, I didn’t find the steel can version. I did however, find a much larger version (1 Liter/33.8 fl oz). I spotted these 2 nestled in the refrigerated dairy section (amidst flavored yogurt and such), so I cradled them in my arms and made my way to the cash register.
I like how they went from asking me to flat-out stop taking pictures (here and here) to now offering to hold up the products for me while I take the picture LOL I spotted some of the New Collections (new to Kuwait, rather) and a new Hair Care Brand called Briogeo, some fun Asian Skincare and more than a few absolutely stunning Palettes! With that being said, now that I’m getting older, I find myself… dare I say it… kinda’ losing interest in makeup (I’m 33). Not a lot seems to wow me anymore. I’ve also noticed the same thing happening with my choice of fragrance (I’m starting to turn away from all things candy and find a lot of my once-beloved gourmands straight up annoying now). If I ever fall out of love with videogames though, I’d be completely devastated (might as well not live anymore, after that! lawl). Thankfully, that hasn’t happened… yet.
I parked my car outside Forever 21 to get to H&M so I could exchange the H&M White V-Neck Frilled Blouse (haulage here) for a smaller size. I was only passing through F21 when I saw some stunning Blue Tweed Lace-Up Platform Boots (they had metallic thread running through them that sparkled so beautifully) and these gorgeous White Pointed Toe Ankle Booties. Realistically speaking, I doubt I’d feel comfy wearing the Blue Tweed Lace-Ups out in public (they were a bit extra), but I had to try on those White Booties! One thing led to another and I ended up getting 2 Red Tops (one from the men’s section and one from the women’s section) and 1 Blue Crossbody Bag and even a colorful Lilac/Pink Ombre Wig (don’t ask), in addition to those White Booties! The total for everything I got was only KD 39. Out of all my hauls, I think this one was hands down the cutest!
