Holiday buys!

Hello everyone!

So as some of you might know, I went on holiday almost a month ago now, I've been home for two weeks so I'm sorry about only posting this now but I was being a lazy blogger! This post has lots of pictures so sorry in advance!

I bought quite a lot of things on holiday, none of them being branded things because I went to Menorca which is only a little Island so they didn't really have anything branded unfortunately but I picked up some lovely little things that I love!


I bought six magazines whilst I was there because I wanted to keep up with all the gossip! They had information about the Olympics in which I loved because unfortunately I went on holiday the day after the opening ceremony and came home the day after the closing ceremony meaning that I didn't get to see much of it at all. However, the bars I went to at night had the Olympics on so I did get to watch the diving (Tom Daley, YUM!), gymnastics, running and swimming and loved it! The magazines ranged from $1.90-$3.00.


The top left picture is of a car freshener plaque, it smells really nice and it says 'save your ugly face, buckle up!' which reminds me of something I would actually say to my friends as a joke haha ($4.99), also in that picture is a rosary bracelet which was too big for me so I'm putting that around my car mirror too! ($2.85). The top right picture is of two keyring's that I bought which I now have on my car keys, I thought they were cute hence why I bought them. The I love Menorca one was $1.75 and the peace one was $1.00. The bottom pictures are of a nail kit that I bought. I needed a new nail kit and loved the colour of this one and it was only $2.50!


I bought two purses when I was away. The top two pictures are of a purse I bought of a market, I loved it and it has so many compartments. The man wanted $12 for it but I got two for $20 as my best friend wanted one so we only had to pay $10 each. The bottom two pictures are of the second purse I bought. I love this purse and is my favourite holiday buy. It was $19.99 which I thought was reasonable considering it was from Mango and Mango was the only shop I saw over there that I recognised! The bag I got it in said Barcelona which is strange because I was in Menorca. I love both of these purses but definitely prefer the Mango one!


I bought two fans (top left and right) which are more for decoration because I never use them in England but I loved them both. The fan on the left was $3.95 and the one on the right was $1.95. The bottom two photos are of a pocket watch I bought of the market for £8.00. I think it's really cute, I probably won't use is but as a decoration piece it's lovely.


The top left picture is a novelty item. It's a wish elf phone charm and I thought it was really cute so decided to buy it :'). Top right is of a travel perfume sort of thing. Basically, it comes with a pump thing (I'm really good at explanations, can you tell) and you use the pump to suck up perfume out of a perfume bottle and then place it in the cute spray travel perfume pictured. I thought it was a really clever idea and it was only $2.25. The bottom left and right pictures are of two bracelets I bought, the one on the left was $3.00 and I also got it in black, I absolutely love the fact it is hand made and I've worn the black one everyday since I've bought it! The bracelet on the right was only $1.50, sadly I've only worn this once but I will definitely be wearing it more!


The top left picture shows a wish band, the idea of it is to tie it round your wrist twice, knot it three times, make three wishes and when it falls off (naturally) your wishes will come true. I thought it was so cute I bought three and so did my best friend! I am currently wearing a green one and wore it everyday on holiday whilst swimming and it still hasn't fallen off! The bracelet says 'gent de menorca' - I asked a local barman and he said it translates to 'menorca's people' which I thought was sweet ($1.50 each). The top right is of a dream catcher, I've never had a dream catcher so thought I might as well buy one for $3.25. The bottom left picture is of a photo album, what I loved the most about this is that it is completely made out of leaves and tree materials, amazing! ($6.25). On the right is a photo frame that I liked because it had Menorca on it and I wanted to put a picture of me and my best friend on holiday in it ($5.25).


Top left is a bracelet that I bought the first night of me being in Menorca because I wanted a bracelet that said 'Menorca', it was around $2.95 and I've worn it everyday since I bought it! The top right picture is the black version of the bracelet that I mentioned earlier in this post ($3.00). Bottom left is another bracelet (I bought loads) which was around $1.50. The bottom right picture is of a bag I bought at the market. I love this bag because I think it looks like a holiday bag, it was $10 of two for $18 so my best friend got one but a leopard print style meaning it was only $9.00 each!


Both of the top photo's are of a Casio watch I bought of the market of all places! I really want a gold Casio but until I get that this will do. I love it! It was only $12.00 and has time, date, day, alarm, stopwatch and light. The bottom left photo is of a pocket version of connect 4. Me and my best friend were bored one night so bought it for $1.99 and we actually had great laughs playing it when we were hanging around the apartment at random points throughout the holiday. The bottom right photo is the two books I bought when I was away. The book on the left I bought for only $2.00 from spar in Menorca (there was so many spars for some reason!) and I only bought because I had forgotten mine that evening and we were in a karaoke bar (BORING) so me and my best friend bought a book each but we didn't actually read them because we just went somewhere else instead haha! On the right is the second book in the fifty shades of grey trilogy, I bought this because I was reading it on my iPhone so thought I might as well purchase it since I had left over euros. However, It did cost $11 which is so expensive! but as I had money left I decided to buy it :)

Thanks for reading!

I'm so sorry that this post is like the longer post EVER!
