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!
