Since my previous order (haulage here), about 4 months ago, ELF had come out with a bunch of new products (including 4 new Makeup Brushes). At the time of this order, they had a promo which included a Free Plump It Up Gift (3pc) with any $25+ order, in addition to a Free Sample with every purchase. I’d accumulated enough points (you get 50 point just for signing up) to pick out a Free Gift of my choice (from select items). I figured it was worth placing an order right then and taking advantage of all the deals and promos and such. Mostly, I just wanted to give those Makeup Brushes a try!
Generally, I try to stick to a budget of around $100 (otherwise it’d be too easy to go overboard without even realizing it). The subtotal for this order was $100 (minus the $8.87 sales tax), which I felt was close enough to my personal target.
Makeup (Eye Stuff, Lip Stuff, Face Stuff, geddit? ELF lawl)
Tools (Makeup Brushes, Sharpener, Tweezers, Lash Curler, etc…)
Eeeeeeee! I’m so excited! I’ve always been pretty much obsessed with Call of Duty in general, but I’ve been looking forward to Black Ops 4 (yas, Treyarch, yaaaaaas!) in particular, for months now! It’s finally been released today! Isn’t she a beaut?
Surprisingly, neither my guy friends nor my brothers seem too fussed about it. Heck, none of them have even picked up a copy of their own yet. One brother is currently playing Far Cry 5 while the other is finishing up God of War.
As you can see, I play COD almost exclusively! Unfortunately, when I went to purchase an Xbox One console, the only version I could find was the 500GB which sounds decent except in reality, it’s actually 364.9GB which meant I was constantly having to uninstall games to make room for newer games. Take now, for example, Black Ops 4 is about 50GB so I had to uninstall everything (except Black Ops 2 because my heart won’t let me) just to have enough memory space for the new game and all the upcoming DLCs. In case you are wondering, I’ve got 2 external hard drives, but those are reserved for other stuff (like my blog lawl).
I can’t wait for Black Ops 4 to finish being installed (which going by the Mcdonald’s connection I’ve got, might take a good long while)!
Of course I couldn’t leave Souq Sharq without making a
quick stop at Sultan Center!
Magic In the Air Gift Set retails for around KD 19/500
A wondrous blend of almond flower, white iris & whipped vanilla
Magic In the Air Gift Set contains:
– Glittery Storage Container
– White Shower Sponge
– Magic In The Air Shower Gel
– Magic In The Air Body Lotion
– Magic In The Air Ultra Shea Body Cream
– Magic In The Air Fine Fragrance Mist
I got this as a birthday gift for my cousin’s wife, also from the Soug Sharq branch of Bath & Body Works (so many birthdays at once). I don’t know her all too well (they just got married recently), but from what little I do know, she seems to enjoy more delicate scents. As such, I’m hoping she’ll enjoy this Gift Set in the scent Magic In the Air.
Despite the fact that I can’t stand the Soug Sharq branch of Debenhams (based on my previous experience here), I had to go back there again, because it’s the only place in Kuwait (that I know of) where they sell Farsali. I wanted to purchase the Farsali Unicorn Essence as a birthday gift for my older brother’s wife (she happens to be obsessed with highlighters). Seeing as how well the Farsali Unicorn Essence made my highlight just pop (haulage here), I figured she’d definitely enjoy using the Farsali Unicorn Essence too. I managed to spot the Farsali Jelly Beam Highlighter (only in the shade Glazed which frankly is the prettiest anyway) and the Farsali Rose Gold Elixir (white packaging), in case anyone is interested. Also, the staff were just as obnoxious and annoying as they were about a year ago.
The last time I actually purchased anything from Bath & Body Works was almost a year ago (haulage here). I’d still pop in for quick peek, from time to time, but most of the releases were quite underwhelming (leaving me less than impressed).
So when I walked into the Mishref Co-op branch of Bath & Body Works that day and spotted both the Water Collection (in-depth deets here) and Sea-Tox Collection (in-depth deets here) I was delighted to find that everything (from the light and fresh scents that were absolutely perfect during hot and stifling weather, to the feature ingredients being Hyaluronic Acid and Seaweed, to the pretty and playful packaging, to the inclusion of fun products including Hair Mists and Facial Mists in addition to the Masks and Scrubs) was ridiculously appealing!
Even better was the fact that Bath & Body Works had an awesome promo (full size items for KD 2/750 and travel size items for KD 1/250) regardless of the sticker price, on both of the newer collections! Has someone at Bath & Body Works been reading my blog? I mean, I’m constantly complaining about new items not being included in any sales or decent promos, so this was quite a nice surprise! Obviously, I had to take advantage of the sweet deal and stock up!
My experience (here) at the Perfume & Makeup Section (Mishref co-op, top floor, all the way at the end of the hall) had left a bad taste in my mouth so I wasn’t really in the mood to try anything on. However, on my way back to the escalator (to take me back to the ground floor so I could leave the co-op) I spotted a cute Denim Jacket on display over at Next.
