my little american beauty haul


Now before I start this post, I just want to apologise for neglecting my blog for six whole months (!). I was so busy with uni and my dissertation earlier on in the year, and then horribly busy setting up my business when I graduated that blogging took a serious back seat. I'm going to try to keep up with some regular posts as I miss it SO much, but for now here's my American beauty haul.

Earlier on this week I came back from an impromptu holiday to Chicago with my cousin. It was nice to get away from the office for a little while, but I'm really glad to be back. Whilst on holiday I managed to hit a shops a little - not as much as I'd like! - and picked up a few things I'd been lusting over. 

My first stop was Victoria's Secret, where I treated myself to some fragrance mists. Lucky for me they were $12 each, or 7 for $35 - the logical decision was to get seven …

We also headed to Bath & Body Works which was also running a Labor Day promotion, so I got six body care items and the cheapest three were free. I also grabbed some of their amazing hand sanitisers, but I'll do a post on these soon.

The B&BW fragrance mists smell amaaaazing, I love them. 

The sugar scrub and moisturiser smell positively edible! It's been so difficult trying to save them for blog pictures before using them.

The Warm Vanilla Sugar body lotion has been a long time favourite of mine as it smells like baked goods. Y'know that warm vanilla smell that takes over the house when you bake cakes during the winter? … No? … Only me? … Okay.

Organix is an amazing hair brand and I really love their products, so had to pick these babies up during a quick trip to Target. I've used the Keratin Oil a couple of times already and it makes my hair feel SO soft, so I kind of feel silly for not picking up a back up …

I spotted the ELF Kabuki brush as I was about to leave Target, and since my Body Shop kabuki has seen better days, it seemed a crime not to put it in my basket!

And who can resist a few drug store mascaras?

I picked up a couple of other things that I'll post about soon, but these were my most exciting purchases. 

Unfortunately I didn't get to do as much shopping as I wanted, but my friend who lives in Chicago said she'll do some shopping for me and pick up the things that I didn't get to.


Have you got any recommendations for products I should ask my friend to get for me?

You've got some great things, I wish some of the American beauty products were available in the UK.

I am from Chicago as well! Although this suggestion isn't a beauty product, if you like Bath & Body, I would recommend the candles! :)
