Last weekend my friend Amie and I headed over to Meadowhall Shopping Centre in Sheffield – the rain was pouring down and what better way to spend a rainy day than eight hours shopping indoors?! As I only work three days a week, I don’t earn a fortune, and with saving up for my upcoming Florida holiday and football, it doesn’t leave me a whole lot of money left – so I was intent on not spending much in Meadowhall. Until Amie took me into Victoria’s Secret…
As I go to Orlando most years (my November trip will be my 15th), I tend not to buy brands here in the UK as they are often a fraction of the price in Orlando, especially Victoria’s Secret as it is so overpriced in the UK. BUT…I saw mint green, lovely, lovely mint green everywhere! I adore mint green, along with rose gold and coral it is one of my favourite ever colours! So I ended up spending over £100 in about ten minutes – Oops!!!!
PINK Mint Green Zip Neck Hoodie £44.50
I am such a girly dress kinda girl, but when I am at home, relaxing or blogging, I love to be comfy AF – I have too many pairs of joggers and hoodies for a girl who doesn’t often wear them in public, but I guess that’s the shopaholic in me! I love the feeling of comfort hoodies give. This mint green one I thought was super cute, as it has a half zip on the front, and LOVE PINK all around the edge of the hood, which ties up into a pretty white bow.
It is gorgeously soft and not too heavy, making it the perfect hoody to take with me on my holiday, as it will fold up neatly and I can pop it out when it gets chilly on the plane. Also, with it being quite lightweight, it will be great for summer evenings too.
PINK Mint Green iPhone 6 Case £17.50
I obviously didn’t really need another phone case either! Although I was actually wanting the classic Victoria’s Secret candy stripe one, but they didn’t have any in store, but then I laid my eyes on this beauty in the PINK section. It is clear, with mint green edging, and then PINK printed on the back in holographic silver print, edged in mint green.
It isn’t made from the stiff plastic that a lot of phone case are made from, but a slightly bendy rubberised plastic. I love that you can see the rose gold of my iPhone through it too. Pretty!!!!
PINK Sunkissed Body Mist £3.50
Okay, so this isn’t mint green – believe me I tried to like one of the mint green coloured scents, but I love anything coconut/summery fragranced, and this one was perfect for me. It is only one of the smaller sizes, and it was priced at £7, which I thought slightly excessive for 75ml of Body Mist, but then I was in Victoria’s Secret.
However, when I got to the tills it scanned at £3.50, so I can’t complain! I do also love the colour coral, so it does look pretty on my nightstand. It is also the perfect size to pop in my handbag, as I find the larger bottles and perfume bottles a little heavy to be carting around. The scent reminds me of summer evenings (if I lived somewhere beautiful like Cornwall) and is getting me ready for the joys of Spring!
Victoria’s Secret Make-Up Bag Trio £40
Now, if I didn’t need another hoody or phone case, I DEFINITELY didn’t need another make-up bag, never mind three of them! When I laid eyes on this trio, I knew I had to have them though as they would make my make-up look extra pretty when travelling!
The largest bag is a clear PU material, with black edging and the Victoria’s Secret logo on the top, and it is big enough for me to fit a decent amount of cosmetics inside, but with it being clear, I can locate items straight away! Although, I imagine it is going to get a little dirty, but with it being wipe-clean, it should be fine.
The medium sized bag is a little flat pouch in mint green with black edging, and I think it is the perfect size for popping in a handbag or even using as a little pouch on holiday, as you can easily fit in a phone and some money etc. Gotta love a multi-use product!
Lastly, the smallest sized bag is a yellow and mint green ombre’d traditional style make-up bag. I love the fresh, bright colours against the black piping and gold hardware and it’s definitely big enough to keep make-up and other girly essentials neat and tidy in your handbag.
I know that Victoria’s Secret doesn’t have a UK specific website, but you can find your nearest store here.
