HauteHaul Pre-Vacation Purchases Part 1 Primark, Topshop, River Island, Miss Selfridge...

*The Primark blouse and Topshop skirt 'in action' pre-Sherry Counsellors gig*

Long time no see Youtube! It feels like just yesterday I finished up with my university exams and came off my excruciating blog break, and yet I'm already getting ready to go on another break from my channel... Forgive me! This time I'm only going for 5 weeks, and this is solely because I'm not sure how much filming/editing I'll be able to do as I trek across the USA in the back of a mini-van. However, if I do have time/internet access I promise I'll update my blog and channel as frequently as possible!

So this is Part 1 on my Pre-Vacation Purchases haul in which I focus mainly on the items of clothing I've bought in preparation for my trip. I will be posting a Part 2 which will include all of the essential toiletries I've bought very soon. Then who knows, its likely I'll go on another bit of a spree at some point over the next week or so in which case I'll post a Part 3 :)

For those of you who have been backpacking before, you may be thinking, 'WHAT? She's planning on taking wedges with her??? What use is that flowery mini-skirt going to be in Yosemite??? She's surely not going to wear a midi-skirt to take a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon???' And I salute you for your rationality. However, I am in fact going to do my VERY BEST to try and take these new bits of clothing away with me. Otherwise, what would I wear on my 4th of July in Vegas??? How could I wow the straight-talking fashion-forward New Yorkers? Would I even fit in with Los Angeles's 'beautiful people' without the assistance of my sexy little Primark blouse? I think not. So stop bugging me! :p

Keep an eye out for my Pre-Vacation Purchases Part 2 and let me know if you have been backpacking before? Do you have any capsule wardrobe tips for a glamour girl? What would you take to the other side of the globe if you only had a backpack? And more importantly, HOW would you cut down on your makeup collection in order to avoid carrying a big huge pink train case packed to bursting with MAC lipsticks across the national parks of North America?

ps. I apologize profusely for my lack of concentration (hence 'ummmm' noise) and constant sniffing throughout. I've been kind of poorly with a cold for the past few days, plus I haven't recorded a video in what feels like AGES so I'm a bit off my game. And I know my hair looks terrible, but as I say, I'm poorly, so let me off, yeah?
