Shopping in Florida

I did a lot of shopping in Florida. In fact, I think maybe I did more shopping in Florida than anybody has ever done in the history of time. I spent two years transferring some of my wages into a separate account so I could have a giant blowout in America and, dear lord, did I have a blowout. Sephora saw me coming, that's for sure.

I'm not going to do a full on haul as there's way too much to put in one post but I'm going to do a video about my favourite purchases and gradually review things I picked up. Instead, I thought I'd just share a picture of my purchases in all of its over the top ridiculousness. Bank balance, forgive me:


Cosmetics in America are a lot cheaper than they are in the UK so I always make sure I save up well in advance before a holiday. The base price is cheaper anyway, and when you take the exchange rate into consideration there are plenty of bargains to be had, especially when it comes to higher end brands. I'm going to write a separate post about the best cult products to pick up if you want to save a few pennies but for now I'll just mention the Cosmetics Company outlet, where I found myself paying around £6.50 for MAC eyeshadows (a LOT of which were current, permanent shades), £5 for Bumble and Bumble treatments and around £11 for Origins face masks. CRAZY CHEAP.

And hopefully that gives you an insight into why I went so batshit crazy for cosmetics!

Florida Photo Album!

So, I'm back from Florida!

It was a fantastic two weeks away, so fantastic that I'm still on such a high I'm not even dreading going back to work too much. It was the perfect holiday and I loved spending two weeks relaxing, shopping and eating with my lovely family and boyfriend.

For today's post I wanted to share a few of my favourite photos from my holiday... because who doesn't love boring everybody with their holiday snaps?

Boyfriend at the Ripley's rifle range // Bubba Gump's shrimp feast // Kate Spade at the mall

Our gorgeous pool overlooking the lake // GIANT pumpkin at Walmart // Cocktail at Red Lobster

Hello cheese fries! // Boyfriend drinking Mountain Dew through a Twizzler // Sky writing above the villa // ME

Halloween Horror Night (AWESOME night) // I miss this pool // American flag // Couple selfie // Me and the eye popping guy at Ripley's

The pool // My lovely mum and nan // Me and my chap // Gorgeous sky // Ripley's Believe It or Not Sign // Johnny Rockets - BEST BURGERS EVER

Oh, Florida. I miss you already.

Byeee England!

Hi everybody!

Just to let you know I'm heading up to the airport to fly out to Florida tomorrow so I won't be posting for a while – I know, I know, I haven't posted for a while anyway! I'm actually having a big redesign (handy have a web developer for a boyfriend!) so I'm taking the holiday to get all of that sorted and write up some new posts for when I get back.

I'm back near the end of October so look out for new posts then – in the mean time I'll be on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram so do stop by and say hi!

Hope you're all well xxx
