MAC Mini Haul (July)

When I took the kids to see Toy Story 4 at Souq Sharq (fully gory deets here), we hit up Fantasy World and Bath&Body Works (dis) and MAC before the movie, and Sultan Center after the movie (dis).

I wasn’t even planning on going in to MAC (especially since I had the little monsters with me), up until I clocked the display for the crazy cute Limited Edition Fix+. One thing led to another and I ended up leaving with these 2 cuties! They were sorta’ repurchases and sorta’ not. I’m just really having a moment with all things Mini/Travel-Size! They’re cuter, cheaper (not necessarily cost-effective but whatevs) and easier to carry around or store!

Cosmo Place + Toy Story 4

I was going for a “candid photo” and ended up with dis lol Just roll with it.

Sunglasses: Louis Vuitton Aviators
Top: Mango Dark Heather Grey Printed Message T-Shirt (haulage here)
Jeans: H&M Light Grey Denim Super Skinny Low Jeans (haulage here)
Socks: Next Grey Leopard Print Socks
Shoes: Adidas Kanadia Trail Running Shoes in Dark Shale/Silver/Rave Pink (purchased from Shoes.com via Amazon.com in 2010)

Despite the fact that I was still traumatized from the time I took them to see Aladdin (full gory details here), I’d promised the kids that I’d take them to the movies to see Toy Story 4. We’d already watched 1-3 on Netflix like I’ve mentioned earlier (Popcorn Paragraph), so everything was still fresh for us. Plus, “Summer Camp” was over and the poor devils were getting restless.

Nordstrom Mascara Haul (May)

Buy any 3 mascaras from your favorite brands, and we’ll automatically deduct the cost of the lowest-priced mascara in Checkout; no promo code required.

Plus, get a deluxe sample of Lancôme Cils Booster with any mascara purchase (one sample per customer).

Ramadan this year happened to coincide with Nordstrom’s annual “Pick 3 Mascaras, Get 1 of them Free” deal. Apparently, most people take advantage of this opportunity, to go after some of the more expensive mascaras (I’m talkin’ crazy expensive).

However, since it was boiling hot in Kuwait, towards the end of May, I wasn’t as willing to risk spending a crazy amount on mascaras, that might possibly arrive all dried up, especially since, after purchasing a handful of Kaftans via Instagram for Ramadan, I was pretty much skint. In fact, I was so broke, I actually debated whether I should just skip ordering online, for the time being.

Then again, the deal on mascaras was too good to pass up! Also, after spending a certain amount, customers qualified for the “Sample Pack of the month” (haulage here), not to mention the Gift with Purchase which totally sweetened the deal!

Nordstrom March Fragrance Haul

Kilian Black Phantom (Memento Mori) Body Lotion
Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau de Parfum Intense (arrived already opened)
Maison Lancome Oud Bouquet Eau de Parfum (x2 travel-size)

While I busy at work not working, I noticed that Nordstrom were now selling my beloved Black Phantom (Memento Mori) (haulage here) as both a Body Lotion and a Shower Gel! Also new to Nordstrom was the latest take on the infamous Black Opium, which was Black Opium Intense. I was still debating whether I should purchase yet another Body Lotion and Perfume, when I happened to notice that the travel-size version of the ever elusive Oud Bouquet was back in stock! That settled that!

As soon as I got home, I hurriedly placed my order. As per usual, there were a ton of Gifts with Purchase and Samples that came along with the order, and everything arrived safely (not a thing was damaged)!

Sephora Brand Gift (Tarte)

Despite my previous Sephora Haulage (here), I only qualified for the Brand Gift after I had purchased the Too Faced Chocolate Bar (KD 21/000) as a Birthday Gift for someone. The Brand Gift I received this time was the Tarte Pamper Me Pretty Color Collection which I’d spotted much earlier at Sephora (here).
