H&M Collective Haulage (December 2020)

December 6

Turns out, I end up saving a lot of money when I’m stuck indoors for most of the year (not going out to expensive events and dinners every night).

What did I do with all that money I saved? I turned right around and spent it shopping online.

A vast majority of the money was spent on H&M.

Their website was a joke (as with most websites in Kuwait, so I can’t really fault them for that).

In fact, despite contacting them several times, clearing the cache and cookies and attempting to change my password several times, I still ended up having to create a new account, because I got locked out of my old one (hence a few missing hauls).

Aside from that, their packages would arrive undamaged, neatly packed and usually didn’t take too long (which is more than I can say for some *cough* Centrepoint *cough*).

H&M Sports Leggings were bomb! I could not recommend those enough!

I’ve always loved their Wide Trousers and their Jeans/Jeggings and their Joggers/Sweatpants as well!

They had a nice variety of T-Shirts and Hoodies and Jumpers and Jackets too!

Basically, H&M had some great basics!

Their Shoes and Accessories were hit or miss though (usually miss lol) but as always, I did manage to find a few gems!

H&M Collective Haulage (October 2020)

October 30

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! ♥

H&M Collective Haulage (August 2020)

August 16

I enjoyed shopping online from H&M during the pandemic!

Their website sucked, but most websites in Kuwait suck (regardless of the brand) so it’s to be expected.

Aside from that, their deliveries didn’t take too long (considering) and everything arrived well-packaged and properly organized (unlike Centrepoint) and their returns were relatively easy (unlike Centrepoint). More importantly, I didn’t start itching uncontrollably, while trying on their clothes (unlike Centrepoint).

Moving on, this haul was more bottom-centric. I picked up a whole bunch of those Wide-Leg Trousers (so comfy) and a few Ankle-Length Trousers and Calf-Length Trousers, while I was at it.

I also got a pair of Jeggings, a pair of Mom Jeans and Sweatpants. I had to pick up a few more of those awesome Sports Leggings that I now love so much too!

Lastly, I purchased a few more Dresses or Kaftans rather, a Hoodie and some T-Shirts and Sweatshirts to round everything out.

H&M Collective Haulage (July 2020) Long Post

July 10

I’d been ordering pretty consistently from Taw9eel (here) during the lockdown and while Taw9eel did meet my cooking needs, and most of my personal care and hair care needs, it just wasn’t cutting it for the other stuff.

Since I’d already ordered from Bath and Body Works (here) and Centrepoint (here) and even American Eagle (here) and they’d all arrived safely to me, I figured why not just go ahead and try my hand at ordering from H&M.

I hadn’t put on the Quarantine 15 yet, so everything I got was in a Size Small or Size 8 bar the Silver Oversized Mesh T-Shirt which I got in 3 sizes and loved so much that I kept all 3 lol

2020 (The First Half)

There was a lot (and I mean a lot) of stuff that I’d planned on writing about, as soon as I finished my Bath & Body Works Hauls, from earlier on in the year (this).

However, between my hair and my nails and my teeth and my heart I kinda’ got preoccupied and didn’t get around to doing much blogging.

Not to mention the fact that 2020 was a pretty horrible year all around (not just for me personally, but in general and worldwide). That in and of itself deserves a whole other separate post (maybe I’ll work on it, maybe not, we’ll see).

In any case, the following is all the stuff I had planned on talking about on my blog, but never got around to (because… 2020).

Edit: I’d started writing this post way before the tragic passing of His Highness Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah, may he rest in peace. Like I said, this year has been awful.

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.
