Towards the end of the year, everything was significantly reduced in price at the US Bath & Body Works so I had to place an order with them.
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.
On Nov 26 2020 Mera and I went to Hamra Tower.
We were there because I’d finally tracked down a seller of the elusive pair of Jordan 1’s that I’d had my eye on!
After I tried on a few pairs and figured out the whole sizing thing, I placed an order for the actual pair that I wanted (pics of us here).
Afterwards, we took a quick walk around the mall and popped into Lush for a small haul before heading towards Al Mubarakia to have dinner at Habra (after several failed attempts lol because I’d been dying to eat there again)!
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.
These Shower Gels were from my U.S. B&BW Spring Haul (here).
Typically, Shower Gels retail for $13.50 but there was a Buy 3, Get 2 Free deal on them.
All of the ones I got were new-new (at the time) so they all retailed for full price with the exception of Champagne Rose which I got on clearance for $3.95 only.
Strawberry Pound Cake (Sweet On You Collection)
Margarita Cupcake (Sweet On You Collection)
Lavender Clouds – Dream In The Sky (Rainbow Collection)
Fresh Raindrops – Dance In The Rain (Rainbow Collection
Saltwater Breeze (New Signature Fragrance)
Champagne Rose (Coming Up Roses Collection)
Don’t they all sound lovely?
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 ♥
My sister and I were at Sephora when I spotted this adorable little trio (Cucumber and Rose and Pumpkin) and decided to get one for her and one for myself. I’ve always wanted to try out some of the Peter Thomas Roth stuff but figured that Aramex would never ship them to me (based on the ingredients, consistency, and so on). I remember lusting after the Rose Stem Cell Mask in particular, and dying with envy every single time someone on YouTube would showcase it in one of their videos. That’s why I was super excited when I found the Mini Mask Magic at our local Sephora! That said, these babies are tiny (0.05 fl oz/15ml tiny)! In a way, it’s kind of a good thing because I get to try out each one of the 3 masks without committing to the full size just yet. Honestly, I’m so thankful that our local Sephora is bringing in more and more travel-sized products, particularly ones that come in sets.
