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!
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.

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.

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.

|ABC shop Haul|
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! :)
They fit perfect and there so comfy, so i snapped them up!
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 Hello kitty Handbag
Hello kitty Vans
Jewellery from Forever 21.
But there is always next time :)
