Dubai Hauling : Victoria's Secret.




Like I said in my Twenty Twelve post I picked up a few things while out in Dubai. I could have gone crazy in the mall, but not being 100% certain on the exchange rate at the time, and knowing that my rent and savings were yet to come out of my bank account I had to be sensible with what I purchased! The first place I headed to was Victoria's Secret. I have always watched videos from mainly Youtubers in the US, and seen the odd blog post on some of the beauty bits from Victorias Secret and knew I really wanted to try some bits and bobs, so when I saw the store when we were mooching around the mall I knew I had to go in! The stores werent massive and mainly stocked fragrance items, with the odd stand of accessories and then a table full of knickers! So I didnt have that much to choose from but I did pick up these gems.

[Sorry for the different lighting in all the photos, I hate winter light it makes taking photos so difficult!]
So I didnt go crazy, Now I've worked out how much I actually did pay I wish I had bought a few other bits. First up I noticed a load of cute gift sets featuring a makeup bag, body lotion, shower/bath gel and body mist. They came in a variety of styles and included different scents. I decided to go for the 'Sexy Little Things Noir' Set. I'm not going to lie, I chose this set mainly for the makeup bag - it was just a bonus that I liked the scents of the products that came with it! I roughly paid about £13 for this set which I dont think is that bad at all! The body mist is the perfect size to just throw into your handbag for a quick spritz on the go. I hate having to carry bulky perfume bottles or sprays in my bags as they take up so much room!

The other product I picked up (which wont be finding a home in my handbag as its pretty bulky) is from their 'Pink' range and its the 'Pink with a splash - Warm & Cozy All over body mist'. I saw Ally mention these in her NYC haul, and had to have a look at them while in store. (Ha I just watched the video again, I didnt realise I actually picked up the same scent as her) I'll be honest I would have picked up every scent they had to offer as they all smelt so lovely but like I said I wasnt sure how much I was spending so I only picked the one up! I am awful at describing scents but this is quite a sweet sugary! My rough calculations tell me this came to about £10...which is a lot for a body mist really isnt it? Considering a lot of the time I used to pick up Boots Natural Collection body mist for a couple of quid! hmmm, its probably a good thing I didnt pick up more than one then!

I'm really happy with what I got - more lotions and potions to fill my bathroom up with! (Perhaps I should start up Project Bathroom again!) Do you have any beauty items from Victoria's secret? Keep your eyes peeled for more posts on what I got while I was away!

Much Love
