Haulin' U.S.A


This post has been a LONG time coming, and I apologise for the delay, I've been a tad busy... hopefully I'll be a little more organised and actually get posts up more regularly again now! Whilst I was in the U.S. I had a lot on my wish list (see my post here) and I managed to pick up a lot of what I had my eye on for some pretty good bargains, so I thought I'd show you what I got in terms of make up and other random little bits! I also intend to do a more fashion-related post at some point, so keep your eyes peeled there...


High End

I went a bit Sephora mad, I must confess... well and Macy's, Bloomingdales and MAC mad, too - but we won't go into that! I managed to pick up a few things that I've wanted for a while that I couldn't find easily in the UK, couldn't persuade myself to buy normally or just treated myself to a product that I just love (Burberry does that to me - see why here!) and I'm very happy with my bits and bobs; I've been so good not touching them until I photographed them that this morning felt like Christmas as I remembered what I'd got my hands on...



L-R: Bobbi Brown Shadow, MAC All That Glitters, Burberry Kisses Lipstick, MAC Twig, Tarte Blush, Clinique Pop Lip

Drugstore

Visiting the drugstore was one of my most anticipated things to do before I headed out to America (sad, but true!) purely because I knew I could grab a great bargain or two... which thankfully did happen! Thanks to some of the tips I was given (here are some of mine for any of you planning on shopping in the U.S), I managed to get hold of a few coveted items, including NYX which I discovered isn't that easy to find, which makes me very a very happy chappy!


L-R: Maybelline Concealer, Rimmel Concealer, L'oreal Eyeshadow, Covergirl Eyeliner, Sonia Kashuk Bronzing Stick, NYX Lip Cream
Non-Beauty
Trader Joes: Milk Chocolate Peanut Pretzels, Salt Water Taffy
Ice Breakers Sours (the watermelon ones)
Hard Rock Cafe (Washington D.C.) Shot Glass

In terms of non-beauty/fashion related things I didn't go completely mad, I only ended up picking things up that I knew I liked or that I wanted to try. The Hot Chocolate Powder is utterly divine and if you can get your hands on anything Ghirardelli, I'd seriously recommend it (almost as good as Cadbury's!!), but I have to admit my favourite thing of this photo is the Bloomingdale's pouch just because of it's practical but lovely design - we even ended up getting one for my Nan as a gift, which she loves!

Having recovered from a week hiking in Wales, this post has certainly been a lovely chill-out and has made me realise, that whilst having a break has been lovely, I really have missed blogging! I hope you have a great week - mine is fully booked yet again...
