Ayyyyy! I'm back from Estonia and I still feel hangover and super tired. I think this might be the first AND the last time I'll attend an office trip ANYWHERE............
Anyway, I wanted to show you some of my shopping I did in Rome and Tallinn! I bought the VS perfume from the plane back to Finland so it's not actually from Rome, haha.... I had no idea what it even smelled like but I just knew I had to have it, once I saw the advert for it in the magazine. And let me tell you guys, that's where my Victoria's Secret addiction started!!
So once I knew we were going to Tallinn 3 days later, I knew I had to get my hands on some VS stuff whatever the price would be. I wasn't even planning on buying anything but once I saw the shelves... I was a goner.
The official description makes me giggle but I'm sharing it with you anyway:

I wasn't even planning on buying another fragrance but once we were on our way back to Helsinki, me and my work buddy were walking around the tax free shop and I started checking out the perfumes... aaaaand one thing lead to another and I walked out with this in my hand. You can never say no to Escada, the smell is just _so_good. It's like summer all over again!
Here's the description:
This fragrance evokes the exotic allure of tropical fruits. With its summery undertone, it invites the woman who wears it to escape in her imagination to a sunny tropical paradise.
Inspired by the famous Pina Colada cocktail, this overdosed fruity scent is built on delightful watermelon notes and a refreshing mixture of juicy pineapple and smooth coconut milk.
I BET YOU CAN JUST
TASTE SMELL HOW GOOD IT IS!? This is something I recommend for all the Escada fans to get. Definitely a must have!
I had really tough time to pick from all the nice things they had for sale. And as they were "tax free" they really cost nothing. I would've bought them all if I've had any space in my luggage (I only took a small one 'cause I hate dragging big bags behind me). So what I grabbed was "Love Spell - Cherry blossom & peach" fragrance mist and "Coconut Passion - Vanilla & coconut" body lotion. I think both of these are very "me" because I love peaches and cherry blossoms and vanilla & coconut combo is always good. The packages look nice and they're art just on their own (
I can store them on my shelf and just stare at them). I think both of these bottles cost about 12,90€ (on land, make that x3) which is super duper cheap! So all you Finns who are going to travel with Silja Line - STOCK YOUR SHELVES NOW! I'm srsly planning a trip to that boat so I can buy more of these....
Happy family picture~
I'll post up the part 2 soon and I want to share some Rome pictures with you too. I just need to edit them first!
Do you have a favorite Victoria's Secret or Escada product?
Let me know! :)
