Bath and Body Works Second Quarantine Haul

Bath and Body Works were having a sale and not gonna lie, my previous haul (this) was kinda’ disappointing, so on July 8 2020 I placed another online order with them.

A lot of stuff was missing (out of stock, because of the sale) but they refunded me (my money was back in my account) in a little under two weeks.

Everything arrived individually wrapped in bubble wrap and there was no breakage nor leakage.

Centrepoint Collective Haulage (21 Orders)

As I said earlier in my 2020 Post (here), it had been months since I’d left the house. Much like the rest of the world who were under lockdown, I was going stir crazy!

Ordering groceries and personal care items and whatnot from taw9eel.com kept me occupied at first, but it just wasn’t cutting it after a while. I believe I was on Snapchat (which I used to “document” all the food I cooked because… quarantine) when I saw an ad for Centerpoint.

I was delighted to find any online clothing store that was open!

They had a proper website (as opposed to the pdfs and whatever from Victoria’s Secret) and they delivered (even if it was after a week or two after placing my order)! The website was easy to navigate with a few minor issues here and there (for example, the drop down bar).

The major issues I had though…
– There was a 15 item limit per order (which was annoying).
– The way my stuff was packed was a joke (clothes were not properly folded and boxes were open with their contents strewn all over the place).
– The clothes always arrived all dirty and dusty.
– Sometimes they delivered the wrong color or size or a completely different item all together.
– Some items arrived with the security tag still on them.
– Some items didn’t arrive at all.

Two Inch Punch – Moonstruck

All the clips used to portray the emotive love story narrative were taken from the 1968 space film ‘Barbarella’ which completely reflects the songs futuristic spacey sound whilst also adding a nostalgic late 60s early 70s vibe to it.

Obsessed!

Imagine playing this song while going for a drive on Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Causeway on a cloudy day! ♥

Everything about this song sounds so good to my ears! It’s so chill! If you’d like an eargasm, give this a listen!

Bath and Body Works First Quarantine Haul

After months of isolation, on June 27, 2020 I finally caved and placed a small order with the local online store of Bath and Body Works.

They had
– Buy 2 Get 1 Free on Hand Soaps
– Buy 2 Get 1 Free on Travel Sizes
– Buy 1 Get 1 Free on Wallflowers and Wallflower Plugs

I wasn’t all that excited about anything in particular. I just needed to place an online order. Aside from Taw9eel.com I hadn’t gone shopping neither irl nor online in quite some time and I was going crazy because of it.

I was the teensy bit curious about the latest Summer Collection and figured I’d give the minis a try. If I liked anything, I could always go back and purchase the full size.

Everything arrived safely swathed in bubble wrap. It took forever to get here though (definitely because of the lockdown, I suppose everyone was ordering online).

Nine Perfect Strangers

Nine stressed city dwellers visit a boutique health-and-wellness resort that promises healing and transformation. The resort’s director is a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies.

I usually only watch/listen to podcasts (dis) but from time to time, I’ll watch a tv show if it piques my interest.

I’ve had an account on Amazon Prime Video for a minute now (well, my brother has the account and I just created a profile for myself on there), but I haven’t gotten around to watching anything on there yet (not even The Boys, believe it or not). For whatever reason, Nine Perfect Strangers piqued my interest.

As I said in my Les Mis Post (here), I’ve always had a soft spot for Nicole Kidman ever since she stole the show in Moulin Rouge!

I also adore Melissa McCarthy and find her impossibly endearing! I’m not quite sure where I know him from but I think Bobby Cannavale is a hottie!

The rest of the cast are all somewhat familiar. That said, it’s the story that I found super interesting! It might not be everyone’s cup of (read: psychedelic) tea, but it certainly is mine and I found the show quite enthralling!
