Despite my previous Sephora Haulage (here), I only qualified for the Brand Gift after I had purchased the Too Faced Chocolate Bar (KD 21/000) as a Birthday Gift for someone. The Brand Gift I received this time was the Tarte Pamper Me Pretty Color Collection which I’d spotted much earlier at Sephora (here).
I figured I should chill on the whole Perfume thing and focus on something more practical (i.e. clothes) instead. That said, I actually wasn’t even planning on buying any new clothes, but while exchanging the stuff at H&M (here) which happened to be right across from Zara, I noticed those covet-worthy Shirt Dresses in all kinds of different prints! I was instantly entranced by their siren call and before I knew it, I was walking right in to Zara, who as luck would have it, were apparently having a Sale! One thing led to another and here we are.
As you can see, I kinda’ went ham and overdid it with the whole Chain Print thing, but managed to snag a few Animal Print pieces while I was at it. I ended up purchasing 5 Dresses (x2 of the Snake Print) and 3 Trousers/Pants and 5 Shirts (x3 of the Blouse-y Shirt) and 2 Leggings and 2 Scarves and a Camisole (previously purchased here) and a Cap. Instead of paying KD 245/200 I ended up paying KD 106/200 because everything I’d purchased (other than the Scarves and Cami) was on Sale!
I was actually checking out the other branch of Bath & Body Works for anything new or interesting (which I didn’t find) when Victoria’s Secret came into my direct line of vision (it was literally across from B&BW).
So, I decided to pop in and check it out. It was kismet, because they were totally having a random store-wide sale! No mention of it on the Al-Shaya Privileges App or anywhere else (as per usual). Not quite sure why they don’t advertise these seemingly random store-wide sales because I for one would love to know beforehand (so I can
prep save up).
Fragrance Mists reduced from KD 7/500 to KD 3/500.
Fragrance Lotions were reduced from KD 7/000 to KD 3/500.
A bunch of other stuff had been reduced as well!
Yeah… so now you know why I don’t take photos of the clothes I haul (‘cuz as you can clearly see, I’m terrible at it), and instead, use the official photos they have up on the official website. As I’ve said before, the lighting is atrocious in my apartment (I insisted on “dimmers”). I need to get them replaced, but I keep putting it off (no time, ok?) Anyways, I couldn’t find any of the clothes online so I decided to take pics of them (with my phone, no less) for this post.
I was traipsing around the Avenues when I saw the huge “Sale” sign at American Eagle and popped in for a quick look. All the Tops were either cropped or see-through (basically unwearable, for me) and the Bottoms were the opposite, too long and heavy. I wasn’t tempted to try anything on, up until I spotted this really cool Skirt! I snatched a couple of potentially wearable Tops to try on as well (since I was gonna’ be in the changing room anyway) and ended up purchasing all 3 Tops and the Skirt on sale for exactly KD 15.
Tropical: Sunset Sweet, Papaya and Pineapple Scent
I took a pic of the entire range – or at least the ones that made it to Kuwait – in my “Spotted at Boots” post (here). Like I said, initially, I was drawn to Fruity because of the adorable packaging but ended up going with Tropical based on the scent. I wish we’d gotten the fun ones too, like Galactic and Unicorn, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers and I’m so glad we even got these in Kuwait at all!
I Am is literally located wall-to-wall with Claire’s, facing Carrefour on one end, and Bath & Body Works on the other end (Avenues). I spotted some of those huge fluffy scarves by the entrance and decided to pop in for a looksy. I didn’t end up getting any scarves, but after a quick lap around the store, I picked up yet another Black Headband (it’s an addiction, I tell ya’) and a stack of colorful Rings!
I Am sells all kinds of accessories at an extremely affordable price point! More people should shop there!
They were having a Buy 2 Get 2 Free over at Boots (the one facing Carrefour at the Avenues) so I decided to pop in and check it out.
