At Christmas I spent a week in the Big Apple aka New York! Whilst I’ve tried to become more minimalist over the past year and buy less, I knew that I’d buy myself at least a few treats while I was away.
I didn’t go quite as crazy as last time when I needed to buy an extra suitcase for the way home, but I did hit up Sephora and Bath & Body Works. So here’s a look at what I got.
From Bryant Park Christmas Market
I couldn’t resist these adorable dachshund/sausage dog socks, as they’re one of my favourite breeds of dog.
There was a lovely candle stall selling beautifully decorated and wonderful smelling gel candles. We chose this small sized, beach themed candle.
Often when me and my partner travel we buy different keepsakes such as baubles/tree decorations. We already have a US flag bauble from our trip to New York two years ago, but we couldn’t resist this pretty NYC one.
Sephora Face, Hand and Foot Masks
Invisibobble Hair Ties, Living Proof De-Frizzer and Drybar Mr. Incredible Leave-In Conditioner
Invisibobbles are my go-to hair bands, whilst Mr. Incredible lived up to it’s name the last time I bought it in New York. It’s a brilliant leave-in conditioner that really helps the overall condition of your hair.
As my hair was frizzy and difficult last month, I also bought the Living Proof De-Frizzer to use during the day on dry hair.
Sephora Face Masks, It Cosmetics CC Cream, Stila Magnificent Metals in Kitten Karma & Fenty Beauty Glossy Posse Set
I stocked up on two Sephora masks, an IT Cosmetics CC Cream which I’ve heard lots of great things about and a Stila Magnificent Metals eyeshadow in Kitten Karma, although I’ve since noticed it’s been packaged wrong!
Kitten Karma is a gold toned shadow, yet I received the shade Sea Siren which I already have. The packaging and tube in the box were packaged wrong, so that’s a bit frustrating! I also bought a Fenty Beauty Glossy Posse lipgloss set, which I’m so excited about.
Bath & Bath Body Works
I was keen to go Bath & Body Works but we didn’t get to go until Boxing Day which was a stroke of luck, as most (Christmas/Winter) products had 75% off!
I stocked up on C.O. Bigelow lip products (full priced), lots of shower gels, bubble baths, bath salts, body creams and a hand cream. I also got a cosy pair of socks and two candles, all in the sale.
