New York wishlist

Whoo-hoo! 4 days to go until I get to see my gorgeous boyf again! I'm usually so organised and am already packed with 2 weeks to spare but work has left me shattered most evenings since my new role at work begun and I have just enough energy for Twitter, let alone anything else.`

For the first time EVER I think I may well return to London with money left on my cards and in my wallet! I'm not really wanting very much. Definite purchases will be ...

Marc by Marc Jacobs Twisted Q Riz Hobo

Canon Powershot SD780 1S (Gold)

Bath & BodyWorks candles
More Victoria's Secrets Pink loungewear
MAC brushes & a VAE back up when Style Black is released
Revlon Colorstay foundation back ups
Colgate Crest Whitestrips - Every time I remember to buy these I've run out of money!
OPI In My Back Pocket
Some nice cardi's/knitwear for Winter
Walgreens Alpha Hydroxy Lotion 8% - I couldn't find this ANYWHERE (I scoured three Walgreen branches) during my last trip and I'm not coming home without it this time!!!

I'll have a look in Forever 21, but I never find the stuff I like online in the stores and a lot of stuff is downright dodgy - why that store hasn't gone up in flames yet cos of its polyester count I don't know! I'm not really a fan of the female clothing stores in America. Nothing beats the choice on the UK high street in my opinion, so I can understand why people are going crazy for Topshop stateside, including all the slebs.

Erm ..that's about it. Anything else that I purchase will be a bonus. I'll be doing my usual trip to Chinatown to see what jewellery I can find whilst fighting my way through the gauntlet of counterfeit designer good sellers whispering "Gucci, Prada, Fendi??" in my earhole too.

Any other places I should be checking out? I've done all the touristy stuff and I wanna explore Brooklyn a bit more as I'm always in Manhattan. All recs are welcome.

LionLovingTiger said...

Bag lust, bag lust!

I'm looking forward to living the NYC dream through your trip!


Marley said...

Have you ever tried Inglot makeup? I know it originated in Europe, so you probably have, but they opened up a store in Times Square- 48th and Broadway. It's so much fun!

If you don't find the AHA cream, let me know- I know mine has it, and we can work something out :)

Cheated Hearts said...

Ooo I want some AHA, I was looking at some on google but it was like $13.

Do the UK sell it?

I know what you mean about the clothes in the US. I went to New York a couple of years ago and I was so looking forward to hitting the clothes shops.

I was very disappointed in the clothing there. The UK high street is so much better as you say!

I love that Marc Jacobs bag! I want it badly!

Have a lovely time with your man and have a safe journey! :) x

@ Shy - Thanks hon I can't wait to get it. Yeah, stupidly excited now!

@ AbbieandBrian - Thanks :-)

@ UnicornSmile - Cheers for that. I will. I don't really 'need' them as my teeth are pretty white but it's all about prevention!

@ Loveaudrey - Re: The bag porn, the pleasure was all mine! LOL Thanks hon. I can't wait to see him!

@ Lola - NY's pretty special. I hope I like the camera looks just as good in the gold when I see it in the flesh.

@ LLT - I'll force Chaud to download Twitter on his Iphone so I can keep you updated! LOL

@ Marley - Really? Ok, I love you! I went to Inglot for the first time on Thursday and was blown away by the choice of shades. I prob won't buy anything as a friend gets 25% off and it's prob more expensive in NY being a European brand but I'll def go to have a look so I can get my list ready for when I do buy some Inglot bits in the future. Thanks for that! xx

VexInTheCity said...

@ Cheated Hearts - Well the Walgreens one is own brand but I don't know who else sells a similar product in NY. If I remember correctly it costs about $5. I'll bring you a tub back.

@ Tackyblueeyeshadow - Yeah there's no variety in clothing out there. You either dress like you're straight of a gap advert, head to toe in designer labels or look like a hip hop video extra! I think the men have it even worse.

I went to have a look at the bag in Selfridges last week and they only had the smaller vesrion in but it is niiiiiice.

Thank you, I'll be savouring every second with him! xx

Feebee said...

Em x said...

OOO I love that MJ bag. You must be so excited about seeing the boy, bet he can't wait either x

♥ Sadie ♥ said...

Fab list. I love that bag, it's one of those styles you'll get to use so much too. The Camera looks fab too. Enjoy your trip xx

randomlondongirl said...

The bag is such a beauty! I am super jealous that you get to go to NYC so often!! xxx

Marley said...

You should try Century 21 for clothing! I have found some really cute, unique pieces. It's a designer discount store too, so it's mostly well made brands. I got a pair of Marc Jacobs mouse flats there for $40. Well worth the trip! It's a little like a rummage sale though- you have to go prepared to hunt!

--I agree with you about Forever 21. I get jewelry there and sometimes hair accessories, but the clothing is pretty icky. Have fun!!! How long will you be in the states?

Sirvinya said...

Oooh, have fun!!

VexInTheCity said...

@ Feebee - It's love indeed!

@ Rosie - LOL I'll be sleeping with it under mmy pillow for a while, so fat chance of that - lol

@ Loveatfirstbite - Cheers darlin'!

@ Emx - You just don't know how excited I am!!

@ Sadie - Yeah that's what I think too. Thanks hon xx

@ randomlondongirl - Cheers hon xx

@ Marley - I've been twice. The first time it was fab, the 2nd time I found nothing and I've never bothered to go back again. I'll brave it again this time if I can be bothered to trek downtown.

@ Sirvanya - I intend to! Thank you xx
