I’ll warn you now that the #number above could get very high before we actually get to America but planning my shopping is half the fun when we go on holiday and since the US has a lot of brands that we don’t I thought I’d share my stream of shopping consciousness with you all in the hope that you may be able to offer some advice. When we went to Vegas last year I was umming and ahhing over so many products and now I wish I’d just bought them so this time around if I see something I like I’m having it cause chances are I wont get the opportunity again for quite a while and I really dont fancy paying inflated eBay prices for something I’ve held in my hand and could have bought for RRP. If you have any suggestions of must haves you think I need to pick up or brands I should try please leave a comment ’cause I have a mismash of ideas right now and I want to get a solid shopping list to at least base my spending on.
So far I have the following brands
I have lots of US exclusives from brands we can usually get here in the UK that I will be looking for too, eg. I Heart New York palette from Nars which seems to be a bit of a b**ch to get hold of but I will be scouring the city as it would be such a cool souvenir from our trip. If all else fails I will be buying the New York eyeshadow from Nars anyway – a gorgeous plum that I usually wouldn’t splash out on but I wont be able to resist while I’m actually there. The next post will be drugstore but right now I am so overfaced with the amount I want I’m kind of building up to it. That and I’m waiting to see what we might get over here first, off the top of my head I’m looking at A LOT of Wet n Wild and everything from Maybelline that we don’t have.. Colour Tattoos I’m looking at you.. Oh and a case full of Bath & Bodyworks Candles of course.
