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 Third Quarantine Haul

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.

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.

Bath and Body Works First Quarantine Haul

After months of isolation, on June 27, 2020 I finally caved and placed a small order with the local online store of Bath and Body Works.

They had
– Buy 2 Get 1 Free on Hand Soaps
– Buy 2 Get 1 Free on Travel Sizes
– Buy 1 Get 1 Free on Wallflowers and Wallflower Plugs

I wasn’t all that excited about anything in particular. I just needed to place an online order. Aside from Taw9eel.com I hadn’t gone shopping neither irl nor online in quite some time and I was going crazy because of it.

I was the teensy bit curious about the latest Summer Collection and figured I’d give the minis a try. If I liked anything, I could always go back and purchase the full size.

Everything arrived safely swathed in bubble wrap. It took forever to get here though (definitely because of the lockdown, I suppose everyone was ordering online).

Nordstrom Hair Care and Fragrance Haul (February)

On February 7th 2020, I placed an order with Nordstrom for some Hair Care and Perfumes.

It might look like a lot, but I actually purchased only x8 items (x3 full-size hair care items – x3 travel-size hair care items – x2 travel-size perfumes) and the rest were all gifts with purchase (deluxe samples).

The total was $336 (tack on an additional $30 for tax) which was around KD 111, not including Aramex shipping fees.

I didn’t know it at the time, but this was going to be my last online order for a good long while.
