Lastly but certainly not least were the Candles and Wallflower Bulbs I picked up during The Big Sale. Some were purchased in-store and the ones I couldn’t find in-store were purchased online.
I picked up x14 large 3-wick Candles and x2 Jar Candles and x3 Wallflower Bulbs. I haven’t started burning any of them just yet because ironically, for the past two weeks I’ve been sick with the flu (hence lack of new posts lol)
3-Wick Candles were reduced from KD 8 each to KD 4 each
Single Wick Jar Candles were reduced from KD 6 – KD 5 each to KD 2/500 each
Wallflower Refill Bulbs were reduced from KD 2/250 each to KD 1 each
If you check out my Spotted at The Body Shop post (linkage here), you’ll see every single item purchased in this haul and more! Unfortunately, these babies were on Sale when I purchased them and although the Sale is now over, they’ve currently got a Buy 2, Get 2 Free promo going on at the moment, which is equally sweet (if not better)! I picked up a Concealer and an Eye Cream, while the rest are all Skincare and Hair Care and Shower Gels, all of which smell amazing! If you’re planning on picking up a few things from The Body Shop, now is the time, because they’ve got a Buy 2 Get 2 Free deal!
I was actually at the Homeware section at Debenhams (top floor) to pick up a few Rose Gold Picture Frames for my adorable sister-in-law (my younger brother’s wife). They were going with a specific theme for their Living Room and I was planning on surprising them (well, her, mostly, ‘cuz guys kinda’ aren’t as interested in that kinda’ stuff) with the Photo Frames, later on. I was also starving because I didn’t get a chance to eat earlier. Plus, it was that time of the month, so I was craving some chocolate (which I normally can’t stand). So I grabbed a few snacks and some random items, from The Sultan Center (all the way at the opposite end of Soug Sharq Mall). Remember back in the day when they used to teach kids about Food Pyramids (grains, dairy, veggies, protein)? I managed to grab something from all the necessary food groups; Chocolate, Gummi Candy, Hard Candy, Potato Chips, and Savory Pastries.
I rarely stop by the Phase I or Avenues I branch of Boots (wedged in wall-to-wall with yet another Starbucks). Normally, I’d visit the Phase II or Avenues II branch of Boots (because it’s one store over from Bath & Body Works which is my usual haunting ground). However, I’ve been hitting up pretty much every single branch of Boots that I can think of, in search of Batiste Dry Shampoo – A Hint of Colour Medium & Brunette (featured here) because it seems to have vanished, country-wide (which makes me very, very sad). It had the nicest scent out of all of them, and the powder was tinted (matching my hair perfectly). That stuff was my favorite! So, if anyone happens to know where I can find it locally, please do share. I’d be much obliged to ya! Anyways, I was at Boots and opposed to just the Buy Two Get One Free deal that they’re usually promoting (which forces your hand into purchasing more stuff), they actually had a legitimate Sale going on (25% off most items), so I stocked up on a few “necessities”.
Get rid of the rough stuff
Our fresh and fruity shaving soap will have you dreaming of summer picnics every time you take a whiff. We’ve whipped fresh strawberries and egg whites with moisturizing rosehip oil, cocoa butter and coconut oil into a light, marshmallow-y soap that softens skin when you shave with it. Plus, all those hydrating ingredients keep post-shaving redness to a minimum!
I’m a die-hard fan of Nivea Cool Kick Shaving Foam (For Men) but this D’Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap from Lush was just too cute to pass up. I first hauled it (here).
