What happened in Vegas... Shopaholic edition

How do you fit this in a case? ahh

I spent 1 whole YEAR saving to goto Vegas, i took a wad of dollars with me especially to go shopping, i think i mentally put $500 aside just for S-H-O-P-P-P-I-N-G!!

I planned to have $100 a day whilst in Vegas, but as its so cheap there i spent a lot less, seeing as some days we didnt go out until the afternoon, so i was saving lots of money to go shopping.
My main plan was to get the wedding out of the way, then i could make sure we had everything paid for that needed to be sorted on the day (literally like $250 for tips and my hair and make up, crazzzzzy!)

The day after the wedding i let my hair down, put my comfy shoes on and my purse had a beating!

Hooters Haul

First stop of the day - Hooters!! i spent about $50 in their merch shop, i had to get the orange vest top... its like the hooters law. So i thought i might as well get the yellow one too as i can wear it as a normal everyday tee shirt with jeans. The drawstring bag was a promo thing for $1.50 if you spent over $35. I also got the retro postcard, and the hooters magnet, which was $8 !! bloody expensive
i think the orange vest was $22, and the other tee was about the same-ish.

Hot Topic Haul
Hot topic was on my list of shops to visit, i had read so much about it online and on other peopls blogs that i had to give it a look. Im so glad i did as they had a sale on, and i found this amazing Elmo hoodie for $32.50 reduced from $50!! wooo I ♥ Elmo so much, this is so totally me! haha
Its also reversable too,  the inside is the print that you can see in the hood, its a bit to crazy for everyday though. I also bought some Pop Rocks, 3 packs for $2.. after my penfriend bought me some im kinda addicted to them. I got the traditional cherry flavour, fruit punch and bubble gum. Yummmy.

Tacky Vegas Haul
I bought this t-shirt from the i love las vegas Gift shop, it was in the sale reduced to $12. I only bought this one as i had been to a seriously tacky shop on the strip and bought a black one which just said 'i love las vegas' but i stupidly left it in the Bellagio after getting excited after a win and leaving my bloody shopping there, i could have cried as loads of hello kitty merchandise went with it. SUCKS to be me.

M&M World Haul
I love M&M's and the Store in Vegas is amazing, its 4 floors of chocolatey heaven! i wanted to buy something from here, but it was really pricey. So i hunted high and low in the shop and on the 4th floor just as i was about to exit i found this cup, its so old shool - you shake it and it has glitter and floaty m&ms in the layers. Love it and it was only about $9. I bought the actual m&m sweets from the 7-11 though as they were waaaaaay to expensive in m&m world.

Forever 21 = Heaven!
Well i had dreamed of this day for a whole year, when ever reading Vlogs, or other peoples blogs i was desperate to have a proper look in the store after all its not the same as looking at their website.
But seriously for anyone who has never been to forever 21, you HAVE to goto the one in Vegas.
Its huge, literally 2 floors and i think 126,000sqft. i went in for a 'quick' look after having to pay mike and steven to goto Starbucks (so that was $10 i spent before i walked in!)
They have clothes to suit literally every style in forever 21, they have preppy, girly, smart, mens clothes, kids clothes. I really wanted some new casual t-shirts, so i headed to the section with them, and there was so much choice, i kept picking things up, putting them back etc.

Forever 21 Haul
Here is what i got and the price-

1) Chiffon floaty top - $15.85
2) Sanrio Hello kitty cropped sweatshirt - £19.80
3) Stripe tight tee-shirt £12.80
4) Super Cat Hooded sweatshirt - £15.80
5) Stay Cool Casual t-shirt - £12.80
6) 2 racer back ribbed vests - $4.80 each

So for $96 i got quite a bit! Im definatly going to Forever 21 in London once i have saved up some shopping money, and lost a bit more weight... it'll be my treat to myself :)

Hello Kitty Haul
Cute ♥
 Opposite Hot topic was my over Heaven, Sanrio. I was a bit over whelmed with what to look at first in here to be honest, and its really quite expensive. I settled on a Hello kitty dressed as a Lion Keycap which was i think $3.90. Then i got the Kerropi bag for $14. On a second trip back i bought a 2012 diary which is cool as it has 2013 in there too, so i get 2 for the price of one! woo

ABC shop Haul
 This is a sad story for me... *sniff* on the same day i won the $50 in the Bellagio casino, i went into the ABC shop, as i had heard from a few friends that they sell amazing Vegas Hello kitty stuff like the keyring, and post it notes in the picture above. So i found 3 really cute keyrings, one the same as above, one which had HK and a cute teddy, and another vegas style one, then i found some really cute post it notes, and it was buy 4 get one free, so i picked out loads of them for myself and for my penfriends. Then i found cute nail files, so grabbed a pack of them as well. it came to about $20, and my dad kindly paid for me.

Then .... that same night i won the $50... (pretty cool huh..) when going to get my winnings, i must have picked up my shoping bags, but im guessing the bag that contained my 'i ♥ Las Vegas' tee shirt, and the $20 worth of Hello kitty stuff slipped through my fingers and i left it behind. *sniff* :( waaaaa
I literally wanted to cry my eyes our when i got back to the villa and realised. it ruined a really good day. Sounds so silly, but i was so happy with what i had bought, and it was just the thought of having to traipse back through the strip to get to the shops again... .ugh - So on the last night when we saw Peep show, mike and myself decided to go to the ABC shop which was in the miracle mile shops in Planet Hollywood hotel, and we bought loads of souvenirs for people, and i bought myself the keyring and post it notes above. I thought sod everyone else im buying it for ME! :)

Cute Converse!
I went into a Store called 'Ross Clothing for Less' its like TK maxx, and i was rummaging around the shoe section to help my mum find some Sketchers Ugg boots, as she wanted the tone up ones which she got for $29.99. total bargain. And when looking i found these Converse for $19.99!
They fit perfect and there so comfy, so i snapped them up!

Rockin Tunes
 Also whilst in there Mike treated me to a new pair of headphones as mine were rubbish and i wanted some DJ style ones, these were only $7.99. total bargain~!

Pressed Pennies
Another thing i did whilst out and about was collect pressed pennies, this comes under shopping as it cost me 50 cents a go. The one of the left was from my step mum when we were at the stratosphere. I also got one whilst there. The bottom one is from the Mirage hotel when we saw the Dolphins. The top one was from a machine outside a 7-11 on the strip. And in the middle its a $1 coin, apprently quite rare, you generally dont get them as change, but when you use the monorail they ONLY give you $1 coins as change... slightly odd.

So thats all i bought really. I went in SO many shops, but yet i just couldnt see anything i wanted. Although now i wish i had bought -

Loungefly purse
Loungefly Hello kitty Handbag
Hello kitty Vans
Jewellery from Forever 21.

But there is always next time :)
