USA Buys Part 1

Whilst I was in America we ending up going shopping a little bit... And I purchased quite a few items, so I thought instead of a massive post, I would spread out my buys into two posts.

I have been to America quite a few times, but never before have I seen such a massive sale! It was literally massive. Plus in Virginia where we were staying, they have a tax free weekend at the beginning of August, so we didn't have to pay tax on the items we bought. 

First we went to Leesburg Outlet Mall and I purchased...

  • Aeropastale Tshirt $7
  • Aeropastale Ankle Socks (pack of 3) $5.25
  • American Eagle Grey Cardigan $14.99
  • American Eagle Peach vest top $3.49
The second shopping trip we had was to Tysons Corner Mall, which is massive!

  • Vans in Black $44.99
Items from Abercrombie... I don't ever purchase anything from Abercrombie in the UK, but it is so cheap in the US compared to England, so I decided to purchase some basic items which I know I will get lots of wear out of. 
  • Stripy Tshirt $10.14
  • Long Sleeve Top $23.80
  • Shorts $9.75
  • Jeans $34
  • Flipflops $7.75

Everything was so reasonably priced, I was really happy with spending my money on such cheap clothing, which I know is such good quality! I will post part two soon!

Majorca 2012

I had an amazing holiday in Majorca during the first week of July. I went with friends from Uni, and we stayed in Santa Ponsa, a 15 minute taxi ride from Magaluf. It was nice being out of it all and the town we stayed in was lovely, but it was difficult not being able to walk into the main town on nights out. However the taxi only cost 10 euros, which wasn't too bad. The hotel itself was lovely, we went all inclusive which meant we got all our meals, plus snacks and drinks for free, which was so useful for pre-drinking!

It was so lovely and hot. We didn't do many activities, just hung around the pool and beach. We did go to a water park one day and do a little exploring of the town, but apart from this it was just basically relaxing in the day time. We had some really good evenings out in Magaluf, it was so much better than I expected! I've been to Ibiza before, and everyone told me I wouldn't enjoy Magaluf as much, but I thought it was just as good. There are so many bars and clubs, and BCM is an amazing club. We went to a water party there and got so many free gifts with our tickets.

Has anyone else been to Majorca/Magaluf? What did you think?
Overall it was a really lovely holiday, would definitely recommend the area. Such a good experience.
