So this was my first and last time at Pottery Barn Teen, because I just blew KD 117 ($384.79)…
… on Blankets and Towels.
I had been doing so well at “budgeting” too, but now I’ve gone and messed that up.
Despite the fact that I’m a middle-aged woman (I turn 35 in December) and nowhere near… teen, I felt that it would be a good idea to take a quick peek inside Pottery Barn Teen.
Clearly, that was a bad idea, because apparently I’ve got zero willpower and just can’t resist anything that I deem to be cute and man-oh-man was this stuff cuuute!
The Supernova Printed Duvet Cover and Sham brings out of this world style to your bed! A dreamy, photoreal print combined with a soft pure cotton percale fabrication makes this a must-have for your sleep space.
Technically, it was a few days before Valentine’s Day, but the title sounded nicer this way! I was actually on the hunt for some Herbal Tea (as much as I enjoy them, my pseudo-coffee drinks, they weren’t much help in the sleep department) which was the main reason why I hit up several branches of Sultan Center (Promenade – Salmiya – Souq Sharq)… on the same day… back-to-back (totally sane behavior).
Are you ready for the ultimate? The Pro Gaming Chair is the top of the line for AKRacing Gaming Chairs. It is upholstered with breathable perforated PU leather, features a wider frame and a deeper seat for relaxed seating and additional leg support, as well as 70% more cold cured foam than the EX chair. A true premium chair with cutting-edge ergonomics and a full spectrum of high-end features dedicated to your well-being. Don’t settle for less, the AKRacing Pro delivers what others merely promise.
I got the AKRacing Pro Gaming Chair as a birthday gift! Apparently, these are the ones that YouTubers use. I know that these things are supposed to cost a pretty penny too, so I just never really set my sights on them. That’s why I was genuinely shocked when my older brother got me one as a birthday gift! So cool!
ELF (Eyes Lips Face) were having a 20% off $20 and 30% off $30 and 40% off $40 and 50% off $50 promo going on (the promo excluded the newest of new releases though), towards the end of November and start of December. I jumped on that deal and ordered a few things that based on my previous experience, probably wouldn’t survive shipping during the Summer (it can get up to 50 Celsius/131 Fahrenheit over here).
Despite being billed for them and also redeeming my “Beauty Points” (part of ELF’s loyalty program) several items were missing from my order. I didn’t bother contacting ELF though, because even if they did ship the missing items separately, the shipping itself would cost more than the actual items. It just wasn’t cost effective.
Regardless, I managed to get my hands on some things that I’ve been meaning to purchase for a good long while now, but was holding back because of the price. I got some Skincare and Foundation (in several shades), Brow Stuff (in several shades), a few Lip Things and even fewer Makeup Brushes and a ton of Blushes and Bronzers and Highlights all for half price! The total was $132 which is slightly more than I would’ve preferred to have spent, but I also feel like I saved more in the long run (logic)! I kinda’ went crazy (which is usually the case when ELF knocks their prices down to half off), but 50% off was just too good to pass up!
On Halloween, I found myself at Sultan Center (Souq Sharq) with a few friends, because we needed stuff… for stuff, y’know?
I figure what with the release of the movie, The Little Mermaid, there’s bound to be a resurgence in popularity of mermaid-inspired anything and everything (has it actually ever gone out of style?), including Mermaid Blankets. Here’s a few things you should know before purchasing a Mermaid Blanket for your child, or for your partner, or even for yourself.
