My Florida Wish List

16 August 2015

I've been dreaming up my Florida shopping wish list ever since we booked the holiday almost twelve months ago. As a huge Disney/Harry Potter/beauty/food fan, Florida is pretty much my ideal destination, so I had visions of filling an empty suitcase with goodies that I'd bought over there. Unfortunately my cash flow isn't unlimited, but I've been saving hard over the last few months to make sure that I can treat myself to a few bits and bobs whilst we're away. These are the items that I'm really hoping to be able to get my hands on.

We start off our holiday with three nights at the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal, specifically for the early entry in to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. There are about a zillion things that I want to buy from here (I'm sure that a few chocolate frogs will be hopping in to my case, for example), but I've featured three items specifically which I'll make sure to come home with. I'd really like to buy an interactive wand ($47.95) so that I can cast some spells around the park. It seems to be fairly hit and miss as to whether Hermione's Time Turner necklace ($49.95) is in stock at the Wizarding World, but if it is, then I'd love to buy it. It's a pretty gold plated necklace which would make me feel a little magical when I wore it. I've also got my eye on a couple of pins for my collection too, I particularly like this golden snitch ($9.95). 

After our time at Universal, we move on to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort to soak up the Disney magic for seven nights. My Disney wish list is even longer than my Universal one, so I've featured a little selection (not shown essentials include some new pens, pins and Minnie ears, of course). I've fallen head over heels for the chalk board home range, so I'll definitely be adding this Beauty and the Beast inspired plate and bowl ($12.95 a piece) to my collection. I'm going to try and not come home with too many mugs, but if I manage to find this adorable Chip cup ($19.95) in stock then it will be purchased. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for this tie dye t-shirt ($29.95), which I think would make a great lazy day top. Lastly I couldn't come home from Disney World without a plush of some form, so I think that I'll treat myself to a pillow pet to sit on my bed. There are lots of different characters available, but my current favourite is the Cheshire Cat version ($32.95).

Sandwiched in between our time at Universal and Disney, we're hoping to get some off-site shopping done at Florida's numerous malls and outlets. Still on the Disney theme, I'd like to swing by Hot Topic to add a couple of new Funko Pop's to my collection; I particularly like this Ariel one ($12.50). Vans are so much cheaper in America that I'll be bringing at least one pair home for myself, so far I like the look of the Windsor Wine Authentic Lo Pro ($45). Of course I'll be hitting up Sephora to stock up on some of my favourites, including a new rollerball of Daisy ($25) and my absolute favourite, Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation ($39). I'll also be looking to try a few new products too. I've got my eye on this Kat Von D Shade + Light Contouring Palette ($46), as I'd like to get to grips with contouring. The beauty theme continues as I'll be stocking up on my favourite Victoria Secret fragrance mists ($14) as I'm almost out, these make great gifts too. Lastly there will of course be an awful lot of American candy consumed over the course of the holiday. I've got white chocolate Kit Kat's ($0.89) on the brain already...
