Nordstrom Haul (Nov 2020)

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.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Haul (Nov 2020)

Rather than pay a little extra money for possibly older products at our local Sephora, I figured I’d pay less money for fresher products, directly from the Anastasia website.

– 30% off all Brow Products
– 30% off all Palettes
– 50% off Glow, Contour Kits and Stick Foundation
– Add a Brush for $10
– Free Collectible Case with the purchase of 2 Palettes

As you can see, they had a ton of deals and promos at the time, and the ones shown are just the ones I took advantage of.

I picked up x2 Eyeshadow Palettes and x2 Liquid Lipsticks and x2 Makeup Brushes a Contour Stick and a Mini Setting Spray. The rest were all Brow Products.

Oh and Anastasia ships directly to Kuwait so I ordered these straight to my doorstep.

Lush Haul (Nov 2020)

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)!

Bath and Body Works Haulage (Nov 2020) Part 2

On November 22, 2020 a whole bunch of stuff popped up on sale, on the local Bath & Body Works site.

Aside from the travel-size fragrance mists and the aromatherapy range, the rest of the scents were repeats (scents that I’d enjoyed before and now loved)!

Can you believe I got all of this stuff for only KD 40 ?

Bath and Body Works Haulage (Nov 2020) Part 1

They were having a sale and it had been a minute since my previous haul, so on Nov 12 2020, I placed another online order with our local Bath & Body Works store.

Aside from the fact that I wanted to pick up a few more things for myself, I was horrified to find that Mera (my friend at the time, but we have since parted ways) was using expired products.

“I don’t believe in expiration dates”, was a direct quote from her.

It’s not that she didn’t have the means. She just genuinely didn’t believe in expiry dates. Also, she was a bit stingy (okay, very stingy) with her money.

Worse still, her stuff (shower gels, lotions, makeup, hair stuff) had expired years ago and she was still completely fine with using them.

Not on my watch! No, sir!

I’d already given her Mon Guerlain EDP (dis) as a Birthday Gift earlier and a full sized Vanilla Bean Noel Body Lotion (dis) and Summer Tiramisu Foaming Hand Soap (dis) at some point.

In this haul, I picked up some Shower Gels for her (well, just the two) and demanded she get rid of her expired Shower Gels, immediately.

Shower Gels were reduced from 5/500 to KD 1/750
PocketBac Holders retail for KD 2/750

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.

Bath and Body Works Second Quarantine Haul

Bath and Body Works were having a sale and not gonna lie, my previous haul (this) was kinda’ disappointing, so on July 8 2020 I placed another online order with them.

A lot of stuff was missing (out of stock, because of the sale) but they refunded me (my money was back in my account) in a little under two weeks.

Everything arrived individually wrapped in bubble wrap and there was no breakage nor leakage.
