A Shopaholic's Journey #4- Hollister,Stila and more!!

As most of you know Hollister opened in Dundrum Town Centre on Friday. As I live near enough I decided to pop down to have a look. Having been to Hollister in Manchester's Trafford Centre, I knew what to expect. When I was in Dundrum in the morning the queue at the entrance was massive. Luckily, when I went in later that day I just walked in. When you've been to Hollister I think you've been to them all as they have the same interior. If you haven't been I think you'll really like it as it something different. I haven't seen anything like it anywhere else.

As I'm not getting paid til the end of the month. I didn't go too mad as it's on the expensive side.

While I was there I did pick up these...

 L2R-Laguna Beach Body Mist & Laguna Beach Body Lotion

The above products retailed for one for €12 or two for €18. As it was better value I got the two. I love the smell of Laguna Beach it's really fresh and has a really nice peach scent. I'm doing my room up soon so I think the packaging is so pretty and it would look so nice on display.

After Hollister, I went into McCabes pharmacy. They are stocking NYC cosmetics now so of course I had to pop in and have a look. Typical me, I came out with this lot.

Bottom Picture- Essence Gel Liner in London Baby, Essence Stay with me longlasting lipgloss in Me & My Ice Cream

I haven't owned anything from either brand before. They are so inexpensive and such bargains. I've heard such good things about both ranges so I  can't wait to try everything out.

Last weekend, I went to Boots in Liffey Valley. I was told by a few bloggers that Stila was opening a stand instore. I own no Stila products so I decided to pop in and have a look.

Firstly WOW this Boots is massive and bigger than any I've ever seen (Mags! you were right it's huge ) I immediately went looking for the Stila stand. After looking over it for a while I came away with these two products.

L2R- Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten, Stila 'Living the Life in Laguna' beach palette

I live a good bit away from Liffey Valley and I probably won't be back there for a while. I've seen so many brands there that aren't in my local boots. One of the things I seen was the Bourjeois Delica de Soleil Bronzing Powder. I've seen this in my own Boots but they have it in the darker shade. I couldn't buy it at the time as it was too dark on me. When I seen the lighter shade I snatched it up along with these other goodies....

L2R- Orly Nail polish in Rage & It's Up To Blue, Max Factor Liquid Effect Eye Pencil in Brown Blaze, Bourjeois Delice de Soleil Bronzing Powder in  shade 12

That comes to the end of another Shopaholic's Jounrney. I hope you enjoyed it!!:D

 Have you tried any of the products above?? Let me know your thoughts!



  1. Nice haul! Is the Kitten Smudge Pot like a cream eyeshadow?

    I've never been to Hollister but judging by pics I've seen of half naked boys at the door, I'm guessing it's something like Abercrombie ;-)
