USA here I come !!!

.

כן, אז זו הסיבה האמיתית לקניית המצלמה J



בעוד כמה שבועות אנחנו טסים לטיול בארה"ב ! וב"אנחנו" הכוונה היא לבעלי ולי J



כבר כמה חודשים מתבשל לו הרעיון, כרטיסי הטיסה הוזמנו ואני חרשתי על כל אתרי המלונות האפשריים כמעט, כדי לחפש לנו את המקומות הטובים ביותר ואפשר להגיד שכמעט כל ההכנות הושלמו - עכשיו נשאר רק....לחכות לטיסה ! ו......לתכנן את הקניות....חחחחח



זאת תהיה הפעם השניה שלי בארצות הברית, בתקווה מאוד שגם לא האחרונה...חחחח...והפעם החלטנו להתמקד בחוף המערבי, אז במשך חודש אנחנו נבקר בסן פרנסיסקו, לוס אנג'לס, סן דייגו, לאס וגאס וגם נעשה גיחה קצרה לקניונים ביוטה.


ואי אפשר להיות בארה"ב ולא לבקר שוב בניו יורק, נכון ? אז גם שם נהיה !



יוווווווו אני כבר מחכה בקוצר רוח !!!



טיולים זה דבר כ"כ כיף ! ואני בדעה שנסיעות מסביב לעולם פשוט מעשירות את הנפש ! לחוות את ההתרגשות שבמטוס הממריא, לראות נופים אדירים, לספוג תרבויות שונות, להכיר אנשים חדשים, לטעום טעמים חדשים ובכלל, לנער קצת את האבק מהיום יום ולהיסחף לאוירה שונה....אחחחח......כמה שזה מדגדג לי באצבעות......



ועוד משהו כיפי שגיליתי בשנים האחרונות – לחזור הביתה אחרי כל החוויות הנפלאות האלה ולהרגיש שאין כמו בבית !!! כי אני מתה על הבית החדש והיפה שלי !!! חחחחח........



אבל רגע....לפני שכבר חוזרים......אנחנו עדיין בשלב ההכנות – יש עוד כמה דברים שאנחנו צריכים לסגור ולברר לפני הנסיעה - להזמין רכב, לחפש מפות ולקנות כרטיסים לכמה מופעים שאנחנו רוצים לראות שם. ואם לרגע דאגתן, אז אני לא מתכוונת להיעלם - אני כבר עובדת על פוסטים שיהיו מוכנים מראש לפני הנסיעה, כדי שלא יהיה לכן משעמם כאן J



אז כמו שכבר סיפרתי לכן, בעלי החליט לכבוד הטיול שהוא רוצה מצלמה חדשה (תתכוננו להמוווןןןןןןןןן תמונות) וכרטיסים למשחק פוטבול ואני החלטתי שאני רוצה..........





ניחשתן כבר ?





חחחחח




לקים !!!



(וכמובן שעוד מלאאאאאאאא דברים אחרים J )



אז אם למשהי מכן יש עצות/טיפים/המלצות איפה לעשות קניות שוות, אני מאוד אודה לכן אם תשתפו אותי






























Yes, this is the real reason for buying the camera J



In a few weeks, we will land in the USA for a one month visit ! And by "we", I mean my husband and me.



We got our flying tickets and I was searching the web for weeks to find us good hotels to stay in, so you can say everything is pretty done and now we just have to….wait for our flight ! And plan our shopping ! lol……




This would be my second time in the US, and hopefully not the last….hahaha…..and this time we decided to focus on the west coast, so we will be visiting San Francisco, L.A, San Diego, Las Vegas and some of the parks in Utah.




And we just can't be in the US and not visit NY again, right ? So will be visiting New York also !!!



Oooooohhhhhhhh I just can't wait !!!!




I love to travel ! And I think travels around the world makes your soul richer ! To experience a plane take off, to see some amazing views, to absorb different cultures (although in this case there is no such a difference), to meet new people, to taste some new things and to be carried away to a different atmosphere…..mmmmm…..this tickles my fingers….



And another fun thing that I discovered lately – is to come back home from a trip and to think to myself that after all, there's no place like home ! Because I love my beautiful new home !!! LOL



But wait…before we'll talk about coming back, we still have some more arrangements to do – rent a car, get maps and buy tickets to some shows that we want to see. And if you were worrying for a moment – I'm not planning to disappear and I'm working these days on some posts to publish here when I'm gone, so you won't get bored J



So as I already told you, my hubby decided to buy a new camera for this trip (prepare yourselves to toooonnnss of pictures…lol) and a football tickets and I decided I want…….












You guessed already ??





Lol





Polishes !!



So here is the part where you get into the picture...:-)



I need your help ! So please – if you can let me know where should I buy polishes in the areas I mentioned, in good prices and/or large variety – I would be very thankful to you !



My "most wanted" are –


OPI, Essie, Color Club, Zoya, Misa, Nubar, China Glaze, Icing, Claire's, illamasqua, Sinful and there are probably some that I forgot






Also, if there are other good brands that you recommend me to buy, or if there are web sites with coupons for shopping (even not just polishes) that you know, please write me that too.



Would you please help to a poor lacquers hunter ???



I really need your help in this part and I would appreciate any advice that you'd give me, so thank you sooooooooooooo much in advance….lol

Ooooh! How EXCITING! You are going to have so much fun. I'm sure you already know to check out the ULTAs and Sephora, ULTA sometimes has sales on OPI, or China Glaze, or the other brands too - and sometimes they have clearance racks, so browse the store. Plus they sell "drugstore polishes" lots of times on sale. At the malls you will usually find a Claire's or an Icing store, where you will get those polishes, and sometimes you'll see a salon called Trade Secret ( I haven't looked in this yet, just read about it!) where you can usually find OPI for discounts!
Sally's Beauty Supply stores carry China Glaze, Orly, Finger Paints, Nina Ultra Pro and have lots of goodies. Oh and Savvy as well!
I don't know of any particular stores to find Zoya or Misa at! Nor Color Club. I know certain Sephoras are now carrying the Illamasqua, I wonder if the one in Las Vegas has it? But they also have their special SOPIs to look at.
Sinful Colors are carried by Walgreens!
Hope this helps out a lacquer hunter and you get a lot of hauls! Can't wait to see your pictures and hear your stories.
Oooh, also! Sometimes CVS has Orly polishes too.

Hope you enjoy the trip. San Francisco is one of my favorite cities. I don't know where you can get Zoya in S.F. without going to a beauty supply. Sadly, most are for licensed professionals only. If you were coming to Seattle I'd point you in the direction of Ed Wyse Beauty Supply. Open to the public and they carry Zoya AND O.P.I.
Have fun!

Oh wow that sounds like the most amazing trip ever! Lucky you, talk about the trip of a lifetime!

I'm based in the UK so can't hekp with the shopping, but it looks like Nicole has it covered!

Inbal said...

וואו איזה טיול שווה מחכה לכם! אני מחכה כבר מעכשיו לראות את כל הלקים המופלאים שתביאי מאמריקה :-)

בקניות בארה"ב אני ממש לא הכתובת אבל אני סומכת על הקוראות האמריקאיות שלך שיספקו לך טיפים למכביר.
איזה כייף לך!

Skye said...

how exciting tuli thats great your off to america..ur going to do some great shopping heehehe

tuli said...

Nicole - Thank you so much ! I knew about Sephora, but I didn't know about ULTA so I searched the web and find it, but just to be sure - did you talked about this one - http://www.ulta.com/ulta/ ?
And I also didn't know about Trade Secret - is this the one ? http://www.tradesecret.com/profile.aspx - if so, they have Essie's on sale 'till september 30, so I'll look for them and maybe I'll catch it :-)
Also, I'll go and locate some stores of Walgreens and Sally's beauty - Thank you SO much ! You helped me a lot !! I didn't have clue where to start looking, so I really appreciate your help :-).


Mighty Lambchop - Thank you ! Well, you know ? our first plan included Seattle, but eventually we had to cancel it, because we don't have enough time...maybe if I knew about Zoya.......lol :-)


Inbal - תודה ! אני מחכה בקוצר רוח לטיול עצמו ולגבי הלקים - אני כבר סקרנית לגלות מה באמת הולך שם וכמו שאת רואה, משתדלת לכסות את הנושא כבר מעכשיו....חחחח

Skye - Oh I sure hope so !! And plan to !! lol....Thanks hun :-)

I wish you could come to Seattle too! I really thought maybe you might be expanding your family he he! I can't think of anything to add to your hunt list Nicole covered most of it. But if your at a Mall look for Hot Topic (for Hot Topic polishes) and also Regis Salon's They always have Opi's on sale. I love Trade Secret I always stop in there! Oh and keep your Eye out For a Dollar Tree and Big Lots, they usually have discontinued Drugstore brands. You can also get Lancome, Estee Lauder and Mac polishes at most Macy's Department stores and if I remember right they have these at the malls in California. If I remember anything else I will let you know Hope this Helped!

tuli said...

Helen - Thanks darling ! Oh yes, I'm so exciting about this trip ! We have several big trips on our mind (one includes the UK...lol)that we want to do every couple of years, but you can't plan the future, don't you ? lol....so one trip at a time :-)

tuli said...

Kitty - Expanding my family is sure on the line :-) but first, we thought to have some more "fun time" on our own, before we start with all these "babys issues"...lol.
Our first plan included Seattle, but when we started to get to the details, we canceled it because we don't have enough time :-(
Thank you so much for your tips, they were really helpful - I didn't think looking for polishes at Macy's and I never heard about Regis salons, so I'm going to locate stores now :-)
And about Hot Topic - are they good ? I don't think I ever saw swatches of this brand...in what store can I find them ?
Oh and also - Are there more places to find Mac makeup and polishes, beside Macy's ?

Sorry for all these questions...lol :-)

Lucy said...

Nicole and Kitty got you covered. Just pop into any drugstores for polish. I don't know what drug stores there are but just try them. Have a wonderful and safe time on your trip. Don't forget to wrap all your polishes in bubble wrap. You don't want them to break. Enjoy sweetie!

Tuli said...

Lucy - Thank you so much ! I'm very excited about this trip - it was on our minds for a long time and I can't believe it's going to happen in just a few weeks ! This will be my first time in the west coast and also in New Jersey :-) And yes, I thought about taking a bubble wrap with me, although I have to admit it sounds funny to pack a bubble wrap for our trip....lol :-)

Alexlyndra said...

I hope you have a lovely time in the US! :D

tuli said...

Alexlyndra - Thank you very much :-)

Nicole said...

Tuli, yes to both, that's ULTA and Trade Secret, they should definitely be in one of the cities you are going to! I forgot to mention the Hot Topic polishes too. I only have one of those myself but they have some bright colors! So glad I could help! :D

tuli said...

Nicole - You helped me a lot !!! Thank you so much ! I'm looking now for these stores in all the cities and I'm going to carry this list with me :-) Muaaaahhhhhhh
