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!

Victoria’s Secret Haul (Nov 2020)

Like I said in Chef LuLu – Part 8 post (here), on Nov 29, after my quick shopping spree at Sephora (haulage here), my friend and I grabbed dinner at Cheesecake Factory and headed home.

On our way back to the car, we noticed a long line of people waiting outside Victoria’s Secret, so we made plans to check it out the next day, together.

Back home, I stayed up past midnight doing a little more online shopping.

The next day, Nov 30, my friend went ahead to Victoria’s Secret, without me.

She’d ditched me the day before at Sephora to go eat.

Even though we had planned to go together to Victoria’s Secret the next day, I kept trying to get a hold of her but she wouldn’t take my calls.

Instead, she’d reply with looong overly detailed voice notes (which was so annoying because I really didn’t need a blow-by-blow).

This was the second time she’d ditched me in two days. I had to let her know this was not normal behavior.

I didn’t mind her not wanting to go with me (in fact, we needed some time apart), but I did mind that she’d made plans with me and didn’t follow through.

She apologized and dropped off x2 Pink Shopping Bags at my place (as a way of making amends for going shopping without me) on her way back home.

As far as I was concerned, as long as she didn’t do it again, all was forgiven.

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! ♥

Matches Fashion Haul (October 2020)

Every single one of my friends had a Balmain T-Shirt and despite myself, I was starting to feel left out.

A quick google searched turned up a UK website called Matches Fashion that sold designer brands.

It didn’t make sense to pay crazy shipping fees just for one expensive t-shirt, so I added a pair of expensive jeans lol and on October 18 placed my first order with them.

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
