Beauty shopping American style

Beauty shopping American style

by on October 14, 2017 · 52 comments

Yes it has to be said that I went a bit nuts while I was away. It took 4 suitcases to lug all this stuff home as the weight had to be evened out otherwise it would have been far too heavy. It was difficult to get a photo of everything so I’ve done three separate ones –

This is my make-up and skincare bits from Ulta, Sephora and Bath and Body Works. I also got a lovely beauty package filled with goodies from my Canadian Beauty Blogging buddy Cinnamon Kitten. I can’t wait to try the Lise Watier and cosmetics.

Yes most of this is from Bath & Body Works but I also got some Tree Hut and Haus of Gloi body scrubs along with a slew of nail polishes and lotions from Aruba.

Of course I had to get more shower gels, anti-bacs and these wonderful candles that turn any fusty house into a cosy home. Now I’d like to state that I have bought some things for gifts too. It’s going to take me awhile to review all this stuff so it will be spread out over the next few weeks.

And here I am with the fabulous Momma COPD who helped me pack it all – she rocks!

So ladies what do think?

Oh my, send some my way :D
This is seriously awesome! Can’t wait for those reviews. You’ve got a serious haul there, and I can imagine how fun it’s going to be to crack open those new bottles.

WOW!! That is a haul and a half! It looks like you’re setting up shop. I can’t wait for the reviews. I think you’re going to enjoy the Lise Watier and goodies too, I’ve really enjoyed all of the things I’ve tried so far.
I love that picture of you and you Mum xx

I think if were to head to the states i’d end up with twice as much as this and spend hardly any time away from the shops. That or i’d be over whelmed and only end up buying OPI.

Well every time I go in B&BW for the first time I have to walk around and assess the situation and then walk out for a breather. It’s easy for your brain to shut off from all the pleasure! :D

Holy crapola!!! That’s amazing…I am totally gobsmaked at the sheer awesomeness of that mega haul, especially what ever it is that is in that pump bottle with the pumpkin head on it! :) Bath and Body Works is probably the number one store I would love to see in the UK! xxx

They were foolish to leave – I think now that they have more of a blog following in the US others are able to see what they have. Fingers crossed they will make there way over at some point. xoxo

I’m happy to be your hero – that’s a big compliment. If I do get stuck I’ll let you know. I’m sure I’ll be finding stuff for weeks on end. I still have to put it all away and photograph it. :D

OMG – Amazing haul! I also thought it was a shop display until I read your post! I’d be tempted to hide it randomly all over the place so you were always finding things and thinking “hmm I’d forgotten about that”. Or, I’d invest in some new super-storage solutions!

Nice to see you and your Mum making an appearance on your blog as well!

xx
