Bath & Body Works (October)

Raise your hand if you like Bath & Body Works! I do! I do! I do~oo!

Whenever I find myself at the Avenues Mall, I always make it a point, to hit up Bath & Body Works (facing Carrefour Supermarket). From the moment they opened up their first store in the country (here), I’ve been obsessed with Bath & Body Works (they actually retweeted my earliest hauls lol)! I believe I was around 24-25 years old back then and even now as a 33 year old, I’m still just as obsessed with the store! From the sublime beach-y scents (variations of coconut and mango and other exotic fruits that instantly transport you to a tropical island) during Summer, to the divine holiday scents (including the cult-fave Vanilla Bean Noel which was vanilla… on steroids) during Winter! From the delightfully delectable gourmand scents (encompassing macarons and gelato and lemon-y desserts and everything in-between) during Spring, to the intoxicating heady spicy scents (cinnamon and pumpkin everything) during Fall/Autumn! To me, nothing highlights the changing of seasons, quite like the seasonally appropriate Bath & Body Works Collections!

Sultan Center Haul #6

Like I said in my previous Spotted at Sultan Center post (here), I was hangry, hence the snackage. You know what? Looking at the haulage, it just occurred to me that I kinda’ do shop a lot at Sultan Center, so at this point, I might as well sign up for a Sultan Center Card (to benefit from whatever benefits that come with the Card). Knowing myself, the moment I sign up for the Sultan Center Card, I’d probably move on to Lulu Hypermarket or Carrefour or something, for good lawl Anywho, I picked up some Chips and Dip, some Fruits, a thing of of Caramel Popcorn, a tiny jar of Caviar and some Personal Care stuff (to qualify for the Scratch & Win Promo which I’ll be going over in detail, below).

Spotted at The Body Shop (Summer)

I was at the Avenues when I noticed they had a Sale going on over at The Body Shop. It was around closing time, but I still managed to take some photos and grab a few things. I tried my best to put names and prices to everything. If there are any mistakes, I apologize (let me know in the comments and I’ll fix it). The NEW ITEMS (not included in the Sale) are all the way at the bottom of this post. To my understanding, the Sale usually lasts for an entire month which according to my calculations is August 20. So if anything catches your fancy, you’ve still got a few days to go pick it up. Hope you enjoy this post!

Sultan Center Haul #3

On April 15 Sultan Center (Souk Sharq) beckoned me yet again with its siren call and I ended up getting even more snackage! Honestly, I just wanted more of those Chips Ahoy! Brownie Filled Cookies, but couldn’t find any. So, I kinda’ went ham and overdid it with the other stuff. In my defense, they just had so many (relatively) new snacks!

Vaseline Rosy Lips + Nivea Lemongrass & Oil Soap

In the past few years, Vaseline and Nivea have really impressed me with their offerings! The two products shown aren’t new, by any means, but they’ve pretty much become my favorites! They do their job (perform well) while smelling crazy good and looking stupid cute! What’s not to love?

Bath and Body Works Big Sale (Part 3)

Unhappy with my Big Sale haulage (Part 1) (Part 2), I went back to the Avenues branch of Bath & Body Works on the hunt for something other than Deep Cleansing Hand Soaps. It took some searching, but I managed to find every single one of the Shower Gels from the Tutti Dolci Collection! I was kinda’ sad that I’d missed out on the Tutti Dolci Collection when it was first released towards the beginning of 2017 (main reason for the post-sale haulage, here) so this was a very pleasant surprise! I kinda’ wanted to get the rest of the products in the Tutti Dolci Collection but I knew that the Creamy Body Wash was going to leave some sort of annoying “hydrating” residue, and that the Fine Fragrance Mist would last about all 5 minutes on my skin before completely disappearing, and that due to its packaging the Body Cream would turn (start smelling funky) in a little under a month. Plus, it was enough of a challenge to find undamaged Shower Gels from the collection, let alone any of the other stuff. I did manage to grab 2 more random PocketBacs (not from the the Tutti Dolci Collection) while I was there so I’m pleased about that too.

This was my final haul from the Bath & Body WorksBig Sale“.
