First of all, this post is very picture heavy so I do apologise for that! Anyway...for the past week my Mum and Sister have been shopping til they drop in New York City while I was left here all alone looking after the pets (only joking, I'm going on holiday next week). They arrived home with their suitcases overflowing with almost the entire contents of the Victoria's Secret store among other goodies and lots of lovely gifts for me - I definitely got spoiled!
First of all from Victoria's Secret I got massive bottle of their perfume Bombshell. I've wanted this perfume for so long but never got round to buying it. It's such a fresh scent with a blend of purple passion fruit, Shangri-la peony and vanilla orchid with top notes of pineapple and strawberry - how amazing does that sound?! It's definitely a fragrance that I could wear daily as well as at night, not to mention the bottle is gorgeous. I also got one of the fragrance mists which I've seen quite a lot of recently in the blogging community, however we don't have a VS in Scotland so I'd never purchased one before. I got the scent Hello Darling which smells of white nectarine and peony, it's so light and fruity and I will definitely be packing this in my suitcase for my holiday. As cute little add-on's I got a fragrance atomizer that I can fill up with my perfume to carry around in my handbag and a gorgeous makeup bag.
From Bloomingdales they picked me up a Little Brown Case from my iPhone which I absolutely love and a Little Beauty Bag. I already have a Little Brown Cosmetics bag but it's a bit small to carry all of my makeup in for travelling, this one is the perfect size.
Now on to the beauty bits... before they even boarded the plane they picked up a few things in duty free as you do. For me they got one of the new Chanel Stylo Eyeshadows in Moon River which is a gorgeous gold shade. I swatched this on my hand and was so excited about it that I was quickly applying it to my lids - this has to be the most gorgeous eye product that I own (bold statement)! It glides on so smoothly and has such good staying power (it took a cotton pad drenched in Bioderma to get it off). I will definitely be doing a full review on this. I opened my Sephora bag to find the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. If you follow me on Twitter, you will probably have seen me tweeting how much I wanted this mask (clearly my sister did) so I was so excited to receive this. Once I've used it a few times I'll let you know my thoughts on it but it's been hyped up in the blogging world recently. My sister also picked me up a lovely Essie polish in the shade Plumberry which I'm wearing on my nails right now, I love it.
Another few other little things I got were a DASH key ring, some M&M's from M&M World and an over-sized Central Perk t-shirt that I'll be wearing to bed and to lounge around the house.
Thank you so much Mum and Rebekah for bringing me back all these amazing gifts, I feel so lucky. I'm sure you'll see my sisters New York Haul over on her blog very soon!
