Florida Haul

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see that I recently spent 2 weeks in Florida to celebrate the end of GCSEs (good riddance!). I normally travel to Florida in February so the weather was very different to what I'm used to, averaging 35 degrees everyday! I'm not sure if I would recommend visiting the Sunshine State in the summer months, however the shopping as always was brilliant and here's some of the purchases I made while I was there.

 Medium Sutton Satchel - Michael Kors

My dad pointed out this bag in the Michael Kors shop in The Mall at Millenia and it was love at first sight. It's probably the largest purchase I've ever made at $350 but so so worth it and I can tell this is going to be a staple accessory in my wardrobe for years to come!

Heidi Klum for New Balance 420 Trainers - Finish Line at Macy's 

From the moment my eyes glanced upon these shoes on the shop display, it was love at first sight. I've been relatively on the fence whether I liked New Balance shoes or not but these shoes sealed the deal. I just love how unique these shoes are and you question whether they're New Balance or not. Plus they're black and will go with pretty much anything!

Assorted Hoodies - Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch

You can't go to America and not buy any insanely cheap Hollister and A&F hoodies while you're there. I'm pretty sure these hoodies all worked out to be about £15 each, a far cry from the £60 price tag here in the UK! They're super soft, super comfy and just super hoodies in general!

Assorted Makeup - Walgreens and CVS

I held back on makeup purchases this time as I bought so much last time however I got some huge makeup bargains in Walgreens where loads of the makeup was in clearance for $1.99 each! Also the Wet n Wild Balm Stain was $2.99 and I had a $2 coupon, bargain of the century!

Reece's Cups Oreos, Ice Breakers Duos - Walmart
Sour Patch Kids Gum - Target

Here's just a couple of the food items I purchased over the last two weeks. Most of the foods I bought, I gave to my friend Emily for her belated birthday present but I managed to sneak a few for myself, including many boxes of Pop Tarts which are at my house in England. So excited to try the Sour Patch Kids gum!!!


  1. I love reading what people get in America, I am loving the look of the MK Bag! It's gorgeous! I'm planning to go to Florida for the first time next year and I'm so excited about the shopping! xo
