Florida Haul: Miscellaneous



It's the last of my Florida Haul posts, which means that I've been back home for just over a month now. I'm already planning my next trip to the Sunshine State though, aiming for a 2016 departure all being well. Just in case you missed the last three posts on my fashion buys (link here), beauty buys (link here) and Sephora splurging (link here), then all you need to do is hover over the links. This post is all about the products that I picked up that didn't quite fit into any of the other haul posts.

Parks & Recreation Season 6 The Mindy Project Season 2 Palo Alto DVDs Haul

Parks & Recreation Season 6 - The Mindy Project Season 2 - Palo Alto
I knew that I wanted to pick up the first two TV boxsets, mostly because neither are available to buy in the UK and I am a huge fan of both but Palo Alto came as a bit of surprise. At $9.99, I wasn't sure that you could get it on DVD in the UK either so James Franco definitely swayed me into buying this. I saw a trailer a few months back and it looks decent enough; I have high hopes.

Not That Kind of Girl - Lena Dunham Book Haul

Not That Kind of Girl - Lena Dunham
I couldn't not buy this. I'm a big fan of Lena's as well as Girls and Tiny Furniture so this purchase was a no brainer. I'm about half way through now and so far it's been exactly what I would expect and hope for from Lena Dunham.

Color Me Girl Crush - Mel Elliott Haul

Color Me Girl Crush - Mel Elliott
This was $1.99 in Urban Outfitters and about the only thing that I could afford to purchase in that store, although saying that UO is much cheaper in the US than it is over here, which again, is slightly annoying. This might not have been an essential purchase but for that price I couldn't leave it behind (how many times have I said that throughout these Florida haul posts? Hehe).

Boo The World's Cutest Dog Haul Buddy Dog

Boo and Buddy
Look at these two. If you happened to see my instagram when I was over in the States (@ellistuesday), then you might have seen me debate whether or not I really needed a stuffed toy of Boo 'The World's Cutest Dog.' You can clearly see what decision I made there. Haha. Buddy (Boo's best friend), on the other hand, was a spur of the moment purchase. I'm definitely blaming the 40% off coupons that I had for Michael's for buying both of them. Hehe.

Disney Toy Story Peas-In-A-Pod Plush Haul Disney Store

Disney Toy Story Peas-In-A-Pod Plush
Toy Story has to be my favourite Pixar movie and Toy Story 3 has to be my favourite of the three. I'm still not sure what I think about the notion of a Toy Story 4, simply because the Toy Story 3 ending was so perfect but I guess I'll wait and see. The last time I was in the US I bought a Lots-O'-Huggin bear (which still smells of strawberries FYI) and when I saw these I knew that they had to come home with me. Some people have throw pillows on their beds, I have Peas-In-A-Pod!

Victoria's Secret PINK You Can't Drink With Us Water Bottle Haul

Victoria's Secret PINK You Can't Drink With Us Water Bottle
I'm a sucker for any kind of pop culture reference emblazoned on something, especially when that pop culture reference is one from Mean Girls. I needed a new water bottle and this one more than fits the bill. Just look how amazing it is!

TJ Maxx Notebooks Haul

Notebooks
The selection of notebooks at TJ Maxx was absolutely unreal! If you happened to follow my travels on instagram (@ellistuesday) then you might have seen a couple of the ones that caught my eye (link here) and (link here) but I finally made my mind up on these. They are almost too beautiful to use.

TJ Maxx To Do Lists Haul

To Do Lists
In the same vain/vein, the To-Do List selection at TJ Maxx was on a whole other level. If you ever happen to find yourself in a TJ Maxx store then I sincerely urge you to check out the stationary section.

Sharpies Haul

Sharpies
Can you tell that there was a sale on Sharpies whilst I was there? Hehe. 75 cents for a Sharpie is unreal!

JCPenney Home Velvet Plush Blanket Haul

JCPenney Home Velvet Plush Blanket
This purchase was completely inspired by the villa that we were staying at. My bed had a velvet throw on it which was so beautifully snug, if perhaps a little unnecessary for a bed situated in the Sunshine State (I would normally sleep with a ceiling fan on it was that hot at night). Whereas this is just the kind of item that should be essential for a winter spent in Scotland and I can confirm, this is the softest and cosiest thing ever!

Michaels Sticko Stickers Haul

Stickers
Inspired by Becca Rose, who was also the reason that I finally stepped through the doors of the incredible store Michaels, I picked up some stickers from Wal-Mart which were only a dollar each. I'm hoping to make up some quotes using these, so please let me know if that is the kind of thing that you would like to see on here.

Michael's Pink Glass Jars Haul

Michael's Pink Glass Jars
These were 60 cents in Michaels! SIXTY CENTS!! If I could have brought more home with me I would have.

Slushy Magic Haul

Slushy Magic
So, I bought a slushy maker! This was another purchase enabled by a fantastic sale at Michaels. Now that I've got home, I've read several, very mixed reviews for this product but I just had to buy it to at least give it a go. Expect a slushy update on social media very soon. Hehe.

So what do you think of the purchases I made whilst I was over in the US? What would be on your American wishlist? Have you enjoyed my Florida Haul posts? If so, which one was your favourite?
