What the postman brought me from USA

I have yet to finish unpacking (am getting there though), but I feel like procrastinating thought I should take a break and blog about my USA haul that I received a day or two before the big move. I could not blog about it when I received it, as I didn't have time to take pictures (nor did I have the space).

Anyway, I purchased all of these products using an Australian credit card and got the companies to post it to my HopShopGo address before getting them to forward my mail to me. I made four orders (two from Victoria's Secret, one from QVC and another from Bath & Body Works). However, I accidentally ordered a backorder item from Victoria's Secret, and it was shipped separately, so HopShopGo charged me for five parcels. I ended up paying approximately $70 in HopShopGo shipping fees.

1. QVC - USD$59.94 + shipping
I purchased the Tarte Journey to Natural Beauty 6-pc Collection with bag in light.

This 6-piece collection contains:
  • One Brow Architect Brow Shaper: 0.007-oz liner and 0.14-oz definer in Fair-Light
  • Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush
  • 1.7-fl-oz Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation in Light
  • 0.2-oz 12-Hour Amazonian Clay Blush in Fearless, a warm pink
  • 0.01-oz Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Plummy Rose, a deep rose
  • 0.31-oz Lights, Camera, Flashes! Statement Mascara in Black

2. Bath & Body Works - USD$50.38
I HAD to pick up some more anti-bacterial hand soaps after trying out and loving the strawberries one from my last order. I purchased warm vanilla sugar, 2 x apples, carribean escape, strawberries and a peach bellini (not pictured, as I forgot it was in the bathroom).

I also picked up the sweethearts shower gel collection, as I absolutely loved the travel sized body lotions I purchased last time.

Decided to put the travel sized "escape to the tropics" body lotion in my cart as well. I also purchased the berry flirt and daisy dreamgirl body lotions to take advantage of their "buy 3, get 3 free" offer. I somehow don't think I'll be needing to purchase any body lotions or shower gels for the next decade...

3. Victoria's Secret
I refuse to add up all two orders to find out how much I've spent... but you can if you like :P All prices are in USD.
I purchased a pair of yoga pants in double chocolate [$15.99] (even though I don't do yoga... or any exercise for that matter... :-\), velour hoodie in rum raisin [$15.99], fleece shorts in white [$9.99]...

 A sweetheart bra top in vibrant fuchsia [$14.99]...

 the perfect V Tee in black [$12.99], essential V-neck Tee in pink ruffles [$9.99]...

a 5-way push0up bandeau top in purple paisley [$14.99]...

Add-2-Cups Bra in Black [$39.60], Secret embrace push-up bra in Ivory/Leopard Inside [$17.99], Push-Up Bra in Blush [$41.60]...

Allover Lace Hipster Panty in Tonal Pink [$4.16], Hiphugger panty in Gold [$5.99], Lace Back Bikini Panty in White Pink Monogram [$4.16], Bikini Panty in Multi Palms Lace [$4.16]...

Seamless Bikini Panty in Grey Multi Stripes [$4.16], Lace Back Bikini Panty in Blue Leopard [$4.16], and Bikini Panty in Iconic Stripe Lace [$4.70].

That's all that the FedEx man brought me from the states. I'm actually quite proud of myself for not getting anything from Sephora... Although I did get the Tarte set from QVC...


    1. Love your Victoria's secret order! I did an order about 1-2 weeks ago but I stupidly ordered directly from the website instead of shipping it to hop shop go and the shipping takes forever! (whereas hopshopgo used DHL and it took like 3 days to ship my Sephora stuff last week!)

      1. Oh no! Could always re-order and use hopshopgo? ;)

    2. Wow you sure got a lot of stuff. Please do some more shopping so I can come and drool a little more lol....

      Love everything, let us know what you think of the Tarte, I would love to get my hands on some.

      1. Tarte products are AMAZING! Definitely try some out if you can. I've got some tarte products for sale on my blog sale...;)

    3. Great haul! I tried to purchase the tarte collection but they didn't have it in my shade by the time I got around to it :( Jealou!

      1. Bummer! Hopefully they'll bring out more shades and do the special again soon :)

    4. Looks amazing, QVC has great Tarte deals xx

    5. Argh I'm so jealous! Tarte *_*
      And love what you got from Bath and Body Works and Victoria's Secret

    6. You make the best purchases! Seriously, I am green with envy every time I see your 'what the postman bought me' posts!

      1. Thanks Dawn! I don't think I can keep up with my weekly "what the postman brought me" posts for much longer :( Being jobless sucks.

    7. I swear I already commented on this post but I came back a second time to see that Tarte set! It looks so awesome!

      1. hahahaha... It's all good. Mishelle, you need some Tarte in your life. Tarte products are amaaaazing!
