Travel & Beauty: What I Bought in the States

When we first decided to book a flight to the US my main thought, after being able to finally see the other side of the Ocean and two of my best friends living in NYC and Texas, has been “OMG I will finally get to make mine a whole lot of stuff I’ve always wanted and never found here in Europe!”.

And then my huge list just came to life.

Now, because I’m such a beauty junkie, most of my efforts focused on beauty products and only a tiny bit of my shopping time went to other things. I must say though, I’ve tried to be money-savy and did quite a lot of research in terms of American prices VS Italian ones. I’ve also concentrated most of my shopping within outlets, so no worries, I did not spend my whole fortune here!

Now, without further ado, there you have it in images: everything I bought during my journey in the States, from New York to San Francisco through Texas, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, San Diego and L.A.
