These are the Body Lotions I purchased in my B&BW New Year Haul (here).
4 were Shower Gels that I’d purchased earlier and enjoyed enough to repurchase as Body Lotions, while 2 were complete blind-buys, making a total of 6 Body Lotions (as shown). Truthfully, I would’ve loved to have gotten my hands on Little Black Party Dress but it was sold out.
Normally, I wouldn’t buy this many Body Lotions all in one go… except these babies had been reduced to around $3 a pop (with the exception of Wild Strawberry which cost $6.25). They were basically 1 Kuwaiti Dinar each! It was too good of a deal to pass up!
With that being said, I’m not crazy enough to have them all open at once. I’m only going to be using one at a time and completely finishing it up, before moving on to the next one.
Also, all of them arrived sealed, which is what I’ve come to expect from the U.S. B&BW (unlike our local B&BW lol).
Started this post on January 4 and only got around to posting it on April 4 lol
I’ve only ever heard of Candle Day, but never actually experienced it for myself, or even knew what day it fell on. Heck, I don’t think we’ve ever had Candle Day in Kuwait.
So imagine my surprise and delight when I logged on to the U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Store and accidentally stumbled on Candle Day! Basically, if you don’t know what Candle Day is, it’s when 3-Wick Candles go on sale!
I added a ton of 3-Wick Candles to my online cart and immediately placed my order, but my credit cart was all “nah lol you’re outta $$”.
Of all the times to exceed the limit on my darn online credit card, I had to run out of $$ on Candle Day?!?!
Thankfully, I still had some $$ left. There was a lot of “mathing” involved, but I figured out I had just enough for x10 3-Wick Candles, with a little something extra for taxes (we don’t have taxes in Kuwait so I’ve got now clue how to calculate that stuff lol)
Deal at the time of this order:
3-Wick Candles were reduced from $24.50 each down to only $9.50 each
$9.50 Today Only! – with code CANDLECRAZE
As I said, the U.S. Bath & Body Works Online Store had some pretty good deals all throughout December! They were releasing new products and new deals pretty much on the daily!
The deals at the time of this order:
– Hand Soaps were reduced from $6.50 to $3
– Wallflower Fragrances Duos (2pc) were 3 for $27 (normally $12.50 each)
– Wallflower Fragrances (singles) were 5 for $23 (normally $7.50 each)

I decided to pick up a few Wallflower Fragrances and Hand Soaps.
Wallflower Fragrances make my home smell ah-mazing and they were on sale! Win, win.
Hand Soaps tend to smell great too and they were on sale as well ergo good time to stock up!

Towards the end of June, Nordstrom came out with x2 more Sample Packs. One, was a mix of Makeup and Skincare (dis), which wasn’t particularly exciting. The other, was this Fragrance Sample Pack, which was very enticing!
For starters, it came with a sample of Mugler Angel Eau Croisière which I was dying to sniff! The pack also included several flankers of well-loved gourmands, Prada Candy and CH Good Girl and V&R Flowerbomb and YSL Black Opium and YSL Mon Paris! I was pretty excited about the samples from Atelier Cologne and Diptyque and Replica and my beloved Kilian as well! Also, most of these were new-new!
In hindsight though, I totally should’ve skipped the Fragrance Sample Pack (June) because it was mostly either floral-y florals (yuck) or overly sharp and citrus-y scents (namely Peach, ugh).
Of course I couldn’t leave Souq Sharq without making a
quick stop at Sultan Center!
I came across this cutie at Sultan Center (Salmiya) and couldn’t resist picking it up. I didn’t even know that Tang made these in this mini-size (48ml/1.62 fl oz) which is ridiculously cuuute!
For reference, here’s what it looks like next to my current phone.
This is another old-y but a good-y, and could always be found in our pantry (powder form, never liquid). I think there might be other flavors (powder form) but we just stuck with Orange. Personally, I used to really like Tang as a kid but I feel like it tastes funky now so I’m not as into it anymore. I only purchased this tiny thing of Tang because it looked so dang cute!
The guy who created Tang (chemist and occasional playwright William A. Mitchell) also created a bunch of other fun edible items including Pop Rocks, and Cool Whip, as well as a form of instant Jell-O. When it first came out Tang wasn’t as popular but when NASA selected Tang to be on the menu (1962) during Astronaut John Glenn’s Mercury flight and again during the Gemini program, a lot of people thought Tang was invented for NASA Space Programs (which is a common misconception) and so the powdered drink quickly gained popularity for that reason.
