Me again, this time to share with you the great bargains I picked up on Honeymoon in the states!
I’ll start off by recommending that ANYONE who likes a little luxury and has a flight that departs from Heathrow airport should definitely pay for the use of the Virgin Heathrow Clubhouse. £50 per person might seem like a lot, but when you actually think about how much you spend on food in the airport anyway and considering you can get limitless champagne, food, and cocktails, not to mention a complementary treatment in either the spa or the hair salon- it’s pretty much a bargain!
I coughed up the extra to get a haircut too – an experience I recommend whilst sipping champagne! I was so happy to finally get rid of all my hair after the wedding! Here’s a before and after shot.
Anyway, I wanted to share with you what I picked up at the Florida Mall. I did spend a few hours on fifth ave in NYC but many of the beautiful things there were either way out of my price range or would have taken up most of my budget.
I was after a handbag from Michael Kors and had a particular colour in mind – in the end I couldn’t find the colour I wanted (a bright primary green incidentally), but I found this beautiful turquoise Kate Spade tote from the outlet store in Florida mall.
While I was in NYC I did pick up this super cool Formula X polish from an amazing store called Sephora- if you’ve never heard of it it’s basically a store that JUST sells makeup and polishes, but from awesome brands that you don’t necessarily stumble across in the UK, such as Marc Jacobs and this particular brand.
In Florida I also picked up some essentials – two pairs of levis, the staple black converse and some tourist souvenirs from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure and a Marvel Heroes t-shirt! Oh, also a belt from Levis, for $4!
A bit of a turquoise theme, hope you enjoyed!
