Hello my lovelies! It’s been a while eh? I did enjoy the two weeks rest from blogging, but I’m back and ready to get back into my blogging groove! My Google reader is immense right now *shudders.*
I had the most amazing time in America and saw so much which I’m saving for another post. What got me the most is the shopping and how huge the malls over there are. Since I was visiting family I got to experience shops that I probably wouldn’t have gone in otherwise like those American staples like Wal-mart, K-mart, Target, Walgreens, Best Buy and CVS. We also visited a flea market in Brooklyn too!
To be fair my shopping actually started in the UK where I picked up a gorgeous green coat with 50% off and a cute jumper dress both from H&M to keep me all nice and warm in NYC:
Whilst traipsing around those huge shopping malls in Florida and NYC I picked up some lovely fashion buys:
Grey fairisle knitted cardigan, Old Navy
Claret laced front t-shirt, Forever 21
Red Oriental floral jacket, Forever 21
Black silk feather tunic dress, Forever 21
Faux fur gilet, Forever 21
Various jewllery, Forever 21
knitted woolly hats, flea market in Brooklyn
Alfie also gave me the go-ahead to pick out some bits as part of my Christmas present this year. This could have been diastrous but I managed to maintain some kind of control (surprisingly) and picked up some goodies from Ralph Lauren:
PJ bottoms, Ralph Lauren Outlet
Brown cable knit jumper, Ralph Lauren Outlet
A part of me does regret putting back a gorgeous Micheal Kors bag back on the shelf…sigh! 😀
I had so much fun shopping I only wish that we were allowed a much larger weight for our luggage on the planes. My cases were full to the brim with both expanders unzipped. Although that said I did manage to finish my Christmas shopping bar a few items that I need to order online and got a got quite a mammoth food haul which I will be sharing later this week.
I hope you are all having a fabulous week!
Have you ever regretted not buying something when you get home from a holiday?
Do you always think it’s a must to raid the shops whilst your away or do you avoid them? -evidently I think it’s a must! 🙂
