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

My youngest niece’s birthday was coming up (mid July) and we were still under lockdown (2020) so I found this really cute online store that sold baby clothing and accessories and picked up a few things for her from there.

Centrepoint Collective Haulage (21 Orders)

As I said earlier in my 2020 Post (here), it had been months since I’d left the house. Much like the rest of the world who were under lockdown, I was going stir crazy!

Ordering groceries and personal care items and whatnot from taw9eel.com kept me occupied at first, but it just wasn’t cutting it after a while. I believe I was on Snapchat (which I used to “document” all the food I cooked because… quarantine) when I saw an ad for Centerpoint.

I was delighted to find any online clothing store that was open!

They had a proper website (as opposed to the pdfs and whatever from Victoria’s Secret) and they delivered (even if it was after a week or two after placing my order)! The website was easy to navigate with a few minor issues here and there (for example, the drop down bar).

The major issues I had though…
– There was a 15 item limit per order (which was annoying).
– The way my stuff was packed was a joke (clothes were not properly folded and boxes were open with their contents strewn all over the place).
– The clothes always arrived all dirty and dusty.
– Sometimes they delivered the wrong color or size or a completely different item all together.
– Some items arrived with the security tag still on them.
– Some items didn’t arrive at all.

Chef LuLu (Part 8)

September 28

Mera made me promise not to have lunch, because she was bringing over “The best seafood you’ve ever tasted in your entire life!”

I however was already used to her exaggerations, so I knew to keep my expectations low.

After I’d ignored Mera’s phone calls one too many times, she’d called up another one of her friends and made plans to go walking in Shaheed Park. After the walk, her friend had taken Mera to Lobster Shack for the first time.

Since Mera had enjoyed the food so much, she had to have it everyday, until she got sick of it (her MO). That’s why she was bringing it over to my place that day, and would go there by herself to have lunch there, every single day (unless we had plans), up until she could no longer stand it.

Mera called me up over the phone and asked me if I prefer Mixed Seafood (Mussels + Crab + Shrimp) or just all Shrimp? I told her I was fine with whatever, but after much prodding from her, said that I prefered Mixed Seafood (I eat everything).

To which she responded, she doesn’t eat Mussels or Crabs and prefers Shrimp. So, I told her she could get whatever, again. I didn’t see the issue…


She came over with a Tub of Mixed Seafood from Lobster Shack… in the size Small (shown in the video) meant to be shared between the both of us.
