On July 23 2020 I went to The Avenues to return/exchange some stuff that I’d purchased online from Centerpoint (here) and H&M (here).
Aside from that one time Mera and I went to the Starbucks Drive-Thru before swimming (June 19) and the day after, when we went to Five Guys to grab some food before the nationwide curfew (June 20), this was my first real outing since the lockdown!
It felt so strange being back at The Avenues after everything that had gone down.
For starters, everyone including myself, was wearing a mask. It felt so surreal!
There were long queues of people waiting their turn outside every store.
As an added bonus, it was an extra humid day and the ACs were not working, meaning every store at The Avenues was basically a sweat lodge lol
After I’d gotten my Centerpoint stuff sorted out (and I was no longer wheeling a huge shopping cart around the mall) I decided to take a quick peek inside Bath and Body Works (the branch facing Carrefour) and ended up getting a few things from there (on sale).
Full disclosure, my previous order (this) still hadn’t arrived when I picked these babies up.
These are the Jar Candles I purchased in my B&BW New Year Haul (here).
After my last haulage of Single Wick Candles (here), I definitely didn’t need any more Jar Candles. Heck, I didn’t need any more Candles in general. However, things that smell good, just bring me such joy!
I really had my heart set on Bluberry Pie. Plus, there was a decent deal on Single Wick Candles (Jar Candles). Normally, Jar Candles retail for $14.50 but there was a Mix & Match: 2/$20 deal on them.
I also ordered a 3-Wick Candle in the scent Citrus Crystals (reduced from $24.50 to to $12.25) which I’d previously purchased during Candle Day (here), but I suppose they ran out because it never arrived.
Super stoked I managed to snag these two though! Aside from the cool black lids, the packaging was pretty blah, but I was more interested in the scents. I mean, how yummy did they sound?
Honestly I wasn’t planning on ordering more Bath & Body Works stuff online anymore, but the U.S. B&BW had some crazy good deals going on and I’m only human after all.
Unfortunately, some of the things I ordered were missing (such as the Exfoliating Lip Scrub in the scent/flavor Mint Drop which had been reduced to $4.25), but that’s my fault for waiting until literally the last day of the year to place my order lol
