Ikea Snackage Haul

You can’t very well decorate an apartment or go couch-hunting in Kuwait without hitting up Ikea!

I didn’t buy anything substantial (only a pack of those colorful Bevara Sealing Clips).

However, that meant I had to wait in a very long line, making the little snack store across from the checkout counter (where I previously got those delicious Apple Drinks) in my direct line of vision.

I was interested in trying out some snackage, especially in conjunction with my recently purchased Bevara Sealing Clips lol

Small Collective Grocery Store Haul

Around January 2021, my apartment renovations were finally almost over and I was on the hunt for the most perfect couch.

I was still very much into cooking, as mentioned in my Chef LuLu – Part 10 – Final Post (here) and was pretty much making Chicken Machboos (among other things) on a weekly basis!

Since my hunt for a couch took me to places I’d never been to before (Al-Dhajeej, to name one), I’d pop in to the nearest LuLu Hypermart or Carrefour or City Center or whatever else afterwards, to check it out (for cooking stuff) while there.

Expect to see a lot of more posts like this, up next.

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.

MAC Haul (Jan 2021)

I used to be obsessed with MAC, even way before I started this blog.

I used to follow all their new releases religiously.

Once the latest collection reached the country, I’d hunt down the items I wanted, hitting up several MAC stores back to back.

I’d haul entire collections (almost every single item) at a time!

For the past 5 year or so, my interest in MAC slowly dissipated.

I no longer kept up with their new releases. In fact, there’s currently a countdown on their website to what might possibly be a Stranger Things Collection coming soon and I could not care less.

For the past few years, I’ve rarely even set foot in a MAC store, except on very, very few occasions.

However, my beloved Mineralize Skinfinish in the shade Give Me Sun! had completely run out.

I wanted a fresh one, so I decided to order it online, from the U.S. MAC website.

That came with its own slew of issues but more on those issues at the end of this post.

Now on to the good-good!

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

Sigma Haul (Jan 2021)

It had been a minute since I’d ordered some Makeup Brushes from Sigma.

So, when I got an e-mail for a 20% off coupon code, I figured what the hey, and placed another order with them on January 2021.

Some of the the soon-to-be-discontinued item were already reduced in price too.

I didn’t even bother with taking this stuff out of the packaging because they arrived around the time I was starting to feel sick.

That said, aside from the two which have been discontinued (you can still google them to see what they look like), the rest are still available for purchase on sigmabeauty.com
