Perfume Shopping in NY!


A friend of mine is heading to New York for a vacation next month. Firstly, of course I'm envious at the thought of her enjoying the Big Apple and all its grandeur! Lucky for me though, when I was studying in Chester, Pennsylvania many years ago, New York was just a short drive away, so I've been there more than 10 times during my 2-year stay in the US. Once, my Financial Management class organized a day trip to New York. There were about 25 of us and our Professor acquired the services of New York Bus Charter to get all of us happily driven around New York city. While the rest of my class was touring the Financial District, I made a slight detour with two other friends to have lunch at Hard Rock Cafe NY instead! :)

Those were some wonderful memories I shared during my university days and sometimes I really long to go back to that moment in time, when all I had to worry about was studying and getting good grades, with a whole lot of FUN on the side of course. If and when I get that much-needed scanner, I'll surely scan some of my old pictures to share with you here, but for now, all the wonderful memories of me and New York will remain only with me. :)

Anyway, the good news about my friend's trip is that I get to pass a short but very important shopping list to her so she can do a little perfume shopping on my behalf. I've just spent more than an hour shopping online for what I really want from her NY trip and I have my heart set on this lovely Must-have Eau de Parfum Gift Box from Victoria's Secret! Isn't it lovely?




This beautiful set includes 7 different scents namely Dream Angels Heavenly, Dream Angels Wish, Very Sexy®, Sexy Little Things™, Body By Victoria® The Fragrance, Sexy Little ThingsOoh La La and Victoria's Secret Pink™! I love this miniature fragrance set so I hope my friend will be able to find the time to make a quick stop to Victoria's Secret on her vacation.
I already have the normal size bottle of the last two scents on my scented list here so their miniature versions would make a great addition to my perfume gallery, don't you agree?

If all goes well, you might just see more pictures of my new Victoria's Secret perfume set soon. In the meantime, I shall continue my shopping and see what else I can possibly add to my list. Isn't it great to have friends who travel overseas often? That way I'd still be able to enjoy all the perfumes that I love so very much even though they're not available here in Malaysia! Thank you T and have a great vacation! :)

Roxy's Best Of... November 22, 2008 at 12:26 AM

Wow just saw this new post and thought I might have a chance to CHOP, but noooo....32 comments already!

Roxy

Shinade November 22, 2008 at 12:26 AM

Of course Walter thinks every blogger is crazy anyway.

I am lucky though. he is content to go to bed and wait for me!!

foongpc November 22, 2008 at 12:26 AM

You and your perfumes! Haha! Hope you'll get the Victoria's Secret perfumes and showcase them in your blog! : )

Shinade November 22, 2008 at 12:28 AM

That is of course when he is at home. And some times his snoring drives me crazy.

I tell you the man could win contest.

When i do get into bed it is always a night of me slightly kicking him and telling him to roll over.

Because his snoring is so loud!!

GTGT...now see you later!! Ya?

Shinade November 22, 2008 at 12:30 AM

Wow I never make your top 10 droppers list and I drop and drop.

I think it is the time difference. After all you are a day ahead of me on this side!!

I will just have to try harder!!

I'm off to the races!!

Roxy's Best Of... November 22, 2008 at 3:34 AM

Here I had my hopes up that it was you, Genie Princess, coming to shop for perfume in NYC!

Roxy

Monica November 22, 2008 at 4:08 AM

London and Maddie are here to play with all your beautiful perfume bottles before we head out to Newark NJ to see Cats at NJPAC...we'll be back with a full report tonight!

Hope you're having a relaxing weekend on your side of the world.

Roxy

Whateverebay November 23, 2008 at 2:12 AM

That is lovely. Reading your post has inspired me to get back into my hobby of collecting them. Oddly enough, my daughter has a small collection of 15 bottles. I had not placed much thought into it. Hmmm.... I will ask why she likes them. I am pretty sure I know the answer, but it's always nice to hear it from her :)

Tammy November 23, 2008 at 3:46 AM

Those are really nice!

Roxy's Best Of... November 23, 2008 at 7:55 AM

Bad Roxy just read this post...you were in the U.S., right nearby in Chester, Pennsylvania for two years??!!

I think I need to read the Mariuca story from once upon a time!

Roxy

Mizé November 23, 2008 at 6:21 PM

Hi. I´ve always loved this sets, but couldn´t afford having many, like you, lucky girl.
Hope your friend gets this beauty for you.
You don´t use the perfumes in this small bottles, do you?
A peaceful Sunday. xx

Shinade November 23, 2008 at 6:48 PM

Hi Marzie,
You made it. And you are up. but, for now you will have to be the last time I do it.

I am up and running but still having some problems.

So I will be slow for the next couple of days!!:-)

LadyJava November 23, 2008 at 9:08 PM

Hiyaaa GP!!!

LadyJava November 23, 2008 at 9:09 PM

Roxy's Best Of... November 23, 2008 at 9:10 PM

Happy Sunday to MPG...just dropping off my EC and saying hello...Rex is making pancakes for breakfast when the girls wake up, so come on over!

Roxy

Roxiticus Desperate Housewives November 23, 2008 at 9:11 PM

London and Maddie want to tell you all about Cats, so do drop by Roxiticus Desperate Housewives to read their review.

Thanks!
Roxy

Raquel November 24, 2008 at 5:02 AM

Hi Mariuca, I like the smell of Victoria's secret too. This gift set is different from last year. I had one last year and the content is almost the same. I think the pink bottle (no ribbon) looks sooo sexy. Anyway, I appreciate it if you can check my Sexiest Fragrances on Earth from Victoria's Secret.

Btw, I have the chance to checked your perfume collection. It's awesome! I like to collect miniature perfumes too. Some of them are posted in my blog.

Mariuca November 24, 2008 at 5:44 PM

Mariuca November 24, 2008 at 5:50 PM

Mariuca November 24, 2008 at 5:52 PM

Mariuca November 24, 2008 at 5:57 PM

Hi Emila, Hi Jackie! :)

Jackie, I doubt anyone of us sleep normally he he, but that's just how it works for us I guess. Odd sleeping hours, odd blogging hours so a sleep marathon is just what we need sometimes! ;)

Mariuca November 24, 2008 at 5:59 PM

Jackie, this is a lovely box of scents indeed! I wish VS will finally come here to Malaysia, but it's been years and I'm still waiting. Can u imagine how happy I'd be if and when they finally make their way here? Yeehaw!! :):):)

Mariuca November 24, 2008 at 6:02 PM
