Sephora Haul (Jan 2021)

The entire time that I was there, I kept thinking that Sephora just hits different, when you don’t have someone constantly nagging you to leave the place (like my previous visit, here).

I had an absolutely delightful time while there!

The stuff I got was a split between items from Sol de Janeiro and items from the Sephora Collection. Oh and a Beauty Blender (that changes color). The rest were all samples.

Nordstrom Haul (Jan 2021)

Everyone and I mean everyone, won’t shut up about Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum.

With that being said, it’s pretty expensive.

So, after months of humming and hawwing, I decided to get the Travel Spray Trio.

I probably could’ve found it locally, but for that price, I wanted to make sure I wasn’t getting an expired or close to expired batch.

I found it on Nordstrom and since I was ordering it anyway, I picked up a few more things, to make it worth the shipping fee. It was not.

The latest reiteration of Angel Perfume shipped separately. Also, one of the perfume samples shipped separately.

I mean, imagine paying several Kuwaiti Dinars for a perfume sample (the one-time-use ones) lol

Nordstrom Haul (Nov 2020)

My last order from Nordstrom, which consisted mostly of Hair Care and Perfume, was back in the beginning of the year (here).

Over the course of that same year, I’d accumulated quite a few things that I’d wanted to purchase from Nordstrom.

Now that the year was almost at an end, on Nov 30 2020 I placed yet another online order with Nordstrom.

There weren’t all that many good deals, this time around.

Bath and Body Works Haulage (Nov 2020) Part 2

On November 22, 2020 a whole bunch of stuff popped up on sale, on the local Bath & Body Works site.

Aside from the travel-size fragrance mists and the aromatherapy range, the rest of the scents were repeats (scents that I’d enjoyed before and now loved)!

Can you believe I got all of this stuff for only KD 40 ?

Bath and Body Works Second Quarantine Haul

Bath and Body Works were having a sale and not gonna lie, my previous haul (this) was kinda’ disappointing, so on July 8 2020 I placed another online order with them.

A lot of stuff was missing (out of stock, because of the sale) but they refunded me (my money was back in my account) in a little under two weeks.

Everything arrived individually wrapped in bubble wrap and there was no breakage nor leakage.

US Bath and Body Works Spring Fragrance Mist Haul

These Fragrance Mists were from my U.S. B&BW Spring Haul (here).

Typically, Fragrance Mists retail for $14.50 but these babies had been reduced to $3.62 each, except for Underwater Oasis which was reduced to $7.25 only.

I’ve actually seen each and every one of these Fragrance Mists in-stores locally during The Big Sale (here) but I barely payed them any attention because they looked gross (not sealed, lightly tested, residue on the sides of the atomizer, etc…).

However, based on the success I’ve found with my previous Fragrance Mist Haulage (such good scents), I figured I’d try my hand at more, especially once they went on sale.

Most of them were from the Mediterranean Market Collection aside from one, which was from the Crystal Cove Collection.

US Bath and Body Works Spring Body Lotion Haul

These Body Lotions were from my U.S. B&BW Spring Haul (here).

After purchasing x4 Body Lotions locally (here) and then another x6 Body Lotions from the U.S. B&BW Store (here) I was fully stocked up and definitely didn’t need more.

However, the deals and promos and prices up on the U.S. B&BW Online Store were just too good to pass up. So, I picked up these two. I could’ve gone for more, but I was pretty content with the ones I already had.

Aside from Iced Pear Margarita (here) which I’d given to my 10yo niece and Vanilla Bean Noel (2018 Version) which I’d given to a friend whom – you guessed it – had asked for it (after she’d sniffed it on me), I was very happy with the ones I had left!

Even Wild Strawberry (here) I’ve found a use for, by placing alongside the Champagne Toast Fragrance Mist (here) at the sink in my guest bathroom. All that peach hurt my nose, but my friends ooh and aah over the scents, whenever they come over and use them, which in turns makes me happy because I’d managed to find a use for them.

In fact, I’m so happy with the ones I have left, that I’ve already given Portofino Pink Prosecco to my 13yo niece and Whitewater Rush to my younger brother.

Whitewater Rush (Men’s Collection) was reduced from $13.50 to $3.95
Portofino Pink Prosecco (Mediterranean Market Collection) was reduced from $12.50 to $3.12

US Bath & Body Works New Year Shower Gel Haul

These are the Shower Gels I purchased on New Year’s (here).

I’d fallen in love with Little Black Party Dress (so sexy!) and Snowy Morning (so fresh!) and Coconut Lime Breeze (Skittles!) all purchased in My 2nd U.S. B&BW Haul (here) and definitely needed to repurchase them not only as Shower Gels, but also as Body Lotions and Fragrance Mists!

Sadly, once the prices got slashed, they went out of stock pretty quick. I’m sooo happy I managed to get a back-up of Little Black Party Dress and Coconut Lime Breeze as Shower Gels though ^_^

The rest were all new to me, granted I had seen Under Water Oasis in our local stores back in Summer.

Apple Blossom and Black Amethyst and Night Blooming Jasmine were clearly florals. Honestly, I thought they were all new because the U.S. B&BW tend to roll out the Spring/Summer Collections 2-4 months in advance, but apparently the latter two were “retired fragrances” that had been brought back for the semi-annual sale.

Rose Water Meringue and Pink Velvet Cupcake appeared to be gourmands from more recent collections, in addition to Christmas Cookies.

Mineral (Men’s Collection) and Under Water Oasis were some nice freshies, to round everything out.

They all arrived sealed ♥
