Etude House Haul (Sept 2020)

On September 28, Mera came over and brought lunch. Afterwards, I got dressed in my H&M Grey Mom Jeans (hauled here) and we went to The Avenues.

We were going to check out the new Hilton Garden Inn (which had just opened up at the time), because we were thinking of taking the kids and spending the night there. We wanted to pretend we were traveling abroad (because traveling for fun wasn’t a thing anymore, on account of the pandemic).

The rooms were pretty basic and the view was abysmal (you can see the room and what I was wearing, here) so we opted out. Instead, I suggested we make dinner reservation at Trapani, one of my favorite restaurants in Kuwait.

While we waited for them to call us for our reservation, we browsed around the mall. We hit up Boots (tiny store), but didn’t get anything from there. Then we went to Etude House, which I knew had opened up some time ago, but had never gotten a chance to visit.

The place looked like it had been ransacked! Shelves were half-empty. Everything had been picked over. Just what exactly had happened here? Undeterred, I managed to snag a few items.

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.

US Bath and Body Works Hand Soaps and Wallflowers

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)
– Use code SANTA for 20% Off Entire Order

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!

US Bath and Body Works Jar Candles

From my 2nd U.S. Bath & Body Works Haul (here)

Jar Candles were reduced from $14.50 (KD 4/400) to $8 (KD 2/400) each

According to the reviews, Jar Candles packed quite a punch and could scent up a spacious room within minutes! I was a bit skeptical, but decided to see for myself, especially since these babies were on sale.

You guys, the reviews were not wrong! For whatever reason, these little things were far superior to their much larger counterparts! I mean, I haven’t actually burned any of them yet, but even on cold throw, some of these were straight up beast-mode!

Bath and Body Works Wallflower Refills Haul (Buy 3 Get 3 Free)

Bath & Body Works had this Buy 3 Get 3 Free deal going on. So, I decided to pick up a few more things and take advantage of that deal.

Supposedly, you could mix and match, but when I added a few Wallflower Fragrance Refills, it wouldn’t let me combine them with Hand Soaps and kept giving me an error message.

When I tried to add 3-wick Candles to the mix, it showed me that I was going to have to pay full price for all the 3-wick Candles and get the much cheaper Wallflower Fragrance Refills for free.

Basically, my best option was to place 2 separate orders; one for Wallflower Fragrance Refills and another for 3-wick Candles.

Man, I wish they’d fix their website already, to where it would be slightly more intuitive.

Wallflower Fragrance Refills retail for KD 2/250 each

Aside from a few experimental ones, I mostly went with sweeter scents.

I picked up x12 Wallflower Fragrance Refills and payed for x6 while the other x6 ended up being free (due to the Buy 3 Get 3 Free promo). The total for this order was KD 11/250 (with free shipping). I placed my order on December 5 and everything arrived safely the next day, except…

Bath and Body Works Shower Gel Haul

The new Fall Traditions 2019 Collection popped up online and as time went on, they added a “sneak peak” of the Holiday 2018 Collection (which was being marketed as “new” even though it was last year’s collection).

I’ve spoken about the local Bath&Body Works tricking customers into believing they were purchasing the latest Holiday Collection except it was always already 12 months old, several times now.

That said, beggars can’t be choosers and when they had an online deal on Shower Gels, it was just too good to pass up. So, I quickly placed my order and picked up some of the stuff I’d been lusting after (sadly, Hot Cocoa & Cream Shower Gel was excluded from the promo and was going for full price… sneaky, sneaky).

Online Promo:
Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 1/750 each
PocketBacs were 5 for KD 3

The total for this online order was KD 10

I placed my order on November 16 and it arrived safely the next day (free shipping over KD 9)

Currently, for “Black Friday” they’ve got 40% Off Sitewide and free shipping, meaning Shower Gels were reduced from KD 5/500 to KD 3/300.

So… I’m pretty much patting myself on the back for not waiting and taking advantage of the previous deal and purchasing these Shower Gels for KD 1/750 a pop (she said ever so smugly)!
