I was walking past Mango (Avenues) when something in there caught my eye and I decided to go in. I’d like to preface this by saying that I don’t recall ever purchasing something from Mango in the past, let alone several somethings. What I’m saying is this was pretty much my first Mango haul ever. At first the sales assistants left me alone as I did my usual lap around the store, save for giving me the stink-eye as if to say “What is this homeless-looking person (unruly curls, not a stitch of makeup, t-shirt, jeans, flats, and a backpack) doing in our store?” but once I had a huge pile of clothes, they all started hovering around me asking me if I needed any help (which I find extremely annoying because I prefer shopping in peace) so I put them to work by handing them my clothes to hang in the changing room for me as I continued my lap in peace.
I got the Mount Fuji Strawberry Cheese Cake KitKat around the same time I got the Wasabit KitKat (both from Sultan Center) and thought for sure that I’d hauled them. After searching high and low on my blog, I still can’t find anything… so here we are. Mount Fuji Strawberry Cheese Cake KitKats are everything!!!! Not only did they taste heavenly but even the packaging was absolutely beautiful!
Aura Loewe Floral
The most floral variant of Aura Loewe. An Aura full of secrets and subtleties, contrasts and contradictions. A feminine and inspiring eau de parfum where a floral bouquet based on violet, rose and jasmine stands out. The unique and unmistakable essence is brought by the carrot seeds, used for the first time in a LOEWE fragrance, as well as the emblematic note of LOEWE leather.
Either you have it or you don’t.
Head : carrot seeds, bergamot, lemon, green chord
Heart : violet, rose, jasmine, orange flower
Base : vanilla, musk, patchouli, Loewe leather
I finally got the Black Wide-Leg Pants that I’ve been obsessing over! I first saw these pants at the Avenues Phase III Branch of H&M (directly across from Harvey Nichols) but they were too small, which is why I decided to visit the Salmiya Branch of H&M but never found them (I don’t believe they were ever stocked over there) but finally hauled them from the Avenues Phase II Branch (across from Shake Shack).
The last time I was at H&M (Avenues Phase III) I fell in love with these gorgeous flowy Pants. Sadly, there was just the one (last piece) and it was about 100 sizes too small. As such, I decided to hit up all the other H&M branches to hunt down those Pants. Unfortunately, I didn’t find them at Salmiya Branch either (no one knew what I was talking about) but I did get a handful of really good pieces.
Since I was at the Avenues Phase III anyway (H&M x The Weeknd), I figured I’d check out the Bath & Body Works on that side too. According to the Privileges App, B&BW were having this offer where you could purchase three items (Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Fine Fragrance Mist) for the price of two. Once again, in typical Bath & Body Works fashion, the offer was only applicable on select items (none of the newer collections), and would only last for the weekend. I didn’t want nor need anything, but since I rarely visit the Phase III branch, I figured I’d take a quick peek since I was there.
According to the Priveleges App, that I’d downloaded on my phone earlier, H&M’s collaboration with The Weeknd was just released in stores (beginning of March). Since I was pretty much obsessed with Starboy (mainly because of Daft Punk), I made time to go check out the collection at H&M (Phase III Branch). I wasn’t impressed with what was left (which had been very picked over) but I did find several exciting new pieces (that had nothing to do with The Weeknd‘s collab) and H&M also happened to be having a Buy Two Get One Free deal going on.
