While I was on holiday in Orlando, I made the most of blowing my spending money on make up that either isn't available in the UK, or works out cheaper than in the UK. I didn't really bother with clothes as most of the things in the shops were summery, and I thought there little point in buying summery items, then returning to autumnal NI.
This is going to be a rather picture heavy post, so I think I will have to break it down in to several posts! So this will be Part 1... what I bought at the Florida Mall. What a glorious place that Mall is... we spent all day there, basically. I wished we had the time (and money!) to go again another day.
The only thing I don't like about shopping in America? The way they slap the bloody tax on when you get to the till! Usually 6.5%. So nothing is exactly the price you expect!
Bath & Body Works:
|Candles: 3 for $5 (Spiced Madeleine, Marshmallow Fireside & S'mores)|
Hand Gel: 5 for $5 (Cranapple Crisp, Fresh Market Apple, Twilight Woods, Midnight Pomegranate, Pistachio Vanilla)
Total: $10 plus 6.5% tax = $10.62 (approx. £6.80)
|Sephora Daily Makeup Brush Cleaner - $6|
NARS Eye Shadow Duo 'Portobello' - $33
Make Up For Ever Aqua Eye Liner '23L' - $18
Total: $57 plus 6.5% tax = $60.71 (approx. £39)
|Face & Body Foundation 'C1' - $32.50|
Eye Shadow Quad - $7
Pan Eye Shadows - $11.50 each
217 Brush - $22.50
Total: $108 plus 6.5% tax = $115.02 (approx. £74)
So, that's a few things that I picked up at the Florida Mall in Orlando! I would definitely go back for the shopping, it is such good value compared to here. The gorgeous weather and fun things to do also help!
Let me know your thoughts :)
