Guys, I love shopping, I love it like I love disco, but I did not do all that much! I was anticipating coming back with bulging suitcases of clothes, but I only kept two items from my Modcloth order and I only bought one dress when I was out there! It's like I'm losing all my powers or something.
I did still buy a few bits though...
But damn, the Americans know what to do with peanut butter. I bought seven giant bags of peanut butter M&Ms. I'm sharing some of them, honest.... but only some.
I bought this fluffy scarf from Uniqlo and wrestled with it as I wasn't sure if it was very me. But then I tried it on and realised it felt like wearing a kitten draped round my neck, and I had to own it. SO SOFT.
Benefit is quite a bit cheaper - this little lot worked out about £15 cheaper overall than over here, so definitely worth it. Plus, my last bottle of Posietint lasted me about 4 years, so even more worth it!
Check out all the exciting flavours of M&Ms! The cherry, not so good. The white chocolate peppermint? AMAZE.
OPI is like £5 or £6 a bottle in the US and Essie is less than £5. Obviously I stocked up.
Rapid Dry was more like £8, but it's £13 over here and it's the best topcoat in the world, so.
The wind in New York is super painful on the old ears. Everyone wears these cute little back-of-the-head earmuffs, so I picked up a pair. Super cosy with the added bonus of no hat hair!
God damn, I love Sephora. I wish there were Sephoras in England. Well, kind of. Except then I would have no money ever again. Carrie recommended their Cream Lip Stain in 001 and god, was she right. It's such a perfect colour! I've decided 2014 is going to be the year I get back into lipstick. The lipliner and eyeliner were only $5 each, too, which is like £3! Bargain!
I picked up this dress in Urban Outfitters for about £20. I love the print! I am having debates about the best way to wear it, but that's a topic for a future outfit post, I'm sure.
And finally, my Modcloth buys. Both of these dresses are utterly perfect in different ways - the polka dot dress fits like a glove and the galaxy print is so unusual. Can't wait to wear them both out!
I also bought some MAC concealer, but totally forgot to photograph it. Oh well. Anyway, this post made me realise that 'little bit' of shopping is kind of a lie. I haven't even mentioned all the Christmas presents I picked up (oh NBC store, how I love thee) and all the unpictured M&Ms. I have an M&M problem.
